ACREAGE REPORT WASTED.
The Jouksxl desirt.g to colect
relating to the acreage of crop put in in
Sioux county in 1891, and will take it as
a favor if the farmers will send to this
office a statement of the crop they have
put in, such report showing the number
of acres of each kind of grain, vegeta
hles, corn, etc., planted. No matter
how small an acreage you have, a rejiort
To the farmer who has the largest
acreage of crop we will send The Jocr.

having the second largest acreage of
crop we will eud The Joikxai. free for
All reports must be in on or before
July 1, 1891, and the comparison will be
made at that date, so that reports sent
in later than tliat would be barred.

torts from farmers from all parts of the
county from time to time as to the con

On last Friday S. R. Story received
word that the new postoflice had been
established at his place. It will be
named Story and Mr. Story will be post
master, and here the story ends.
A social will be held at the court
house on Wednesday evening, June 17th.
h-e cream and cake will be served, the
proceeds to aid in procuring a library for
the Bible school. All invited. By order
The hanging of the two murderers at
Fremont last Friday passed off ns ar
ranged for. No mishaps occurred. The
action of Gov. Thayer in ordering out
company of state troops to keep the
crowd was certainly commendable.
public execution is not a good thing and
to allow enclosures to be torn down only
tends to encourage law breaking.
Next Sunday, June 14th, will le
childrens' day, and appropriate services
will be held at the church, under the
auspices of the Union Sunday school
An interesting program las been pre
pared, which is omitted for lack of
space. Hie exercises will begin at 8
o'clock) p. m: All are invited.
The prospects for an unusually large
yield of all kinds of wild frnits are excel
lent. Grapes, currantB, gooseberries.
choke cherries, strawberries, etc., will
bo more plentiful this year than for the
last two years and as they are of unus
ually fine fpuality in this locality they
will be appreciated.
B. B. Bixby informs us that the fish
commissioner stated that his car would tie
up in this part of the state in September
or October. Now is the time for the
farmers to prepare to get fish. Get your
ponds ready and send in your applica-
tions and then the (lsh car will come up
here and what you get will be in good
condition and soon there will be plenty
of fish in the waters of Sioux county
In this, as all other things, a little con
certed action will advance tlie iuterests

Joe Brenner went up to Hot Springs
Saturday to testify in the horse stealing
case of Jim IVolan, tlie man wnom dim

Alliance two weeks oco. Nolan had
triven bond to appear for trial on Decora

w hen Monday came Mr. Nolan had taken
i li advice of counsel and walked oil'.
As a result, all the trouble and pains
taken by Sheriff Dahlman to capture tho
man goes for nothing because of a crim

It certainly looks as though there was
something rotten in ucnmarn wwen pur

in this region and nothing will be to

In the above is an error in the name of
the jiarty, as it was John Nolan, but it
shows the iiKMiner in wlilcli ine case oi
the State of South Dakota vs. John No

0th seems to take the part of Nolan and
tries to shield him, a stand which could
only le exjiected from a paper like the
Ihrald, which claims to oe run ior u
benefit of the people. But what kind of
people? Is it a class wnose oumnv
would be materially effected if made
known to the public?

The basket meeting at Plimpton's
grove on last Sunday was quite well at
tended, by people from both town and
country. Rev. Rorick preached a well-
timed sermon, after which tlie basket
dinner was enjoyed by all.
Several days of the past week were
damp and on Monday evening the heav
iest rain of the season fell in this locali
ty. Some hail fell also, but did no
damage. A few miles south of town
some hail stones of large dimensions fell.
Reports from other localities are that
plenty of rain has fallen to keep the
crops growing in good shape. Every
thing indicates a good crop in Sioux
county, and the farmers will get good
prices for what they raise.
C. D. Plimpton has done a lot of
work cleaning up the grounds in his
grove on West Hat creek. He has put
up a novel as well as substantial swing
and also provided some seats and expects
to further improve it in the near future,
He also intends to make a fish pond of
several acres and stock it with choice
fish. If he carries out his plans it will

As will be seen by reading the pro
ceedings of the board of commissioners
which apjiear in this issue, steps have
teen taken to recover, or rather to re
tain something over $1,800 of the short

The case is one without a parallel, so far
as we can learn, and some question the
legality of the position taken, County
Attorney Conley believes his theory cor

matter will be to take it into the courts.
