C. N. Keith, general agent of the
Dakota Loan & Trust Co., of Water-
town, S. D., was in town this week and
inspected the loans made through the
Bank of Harrison on Sioux county real
estate. Unexpressed himself as very
highly pleased with the work done in
this county, and stated that the com
pany would resume loaning this sum
mer, providing the harvest proved as
abundant as it now promises to be.
The weather has been quite damp
since our last issue. On Friday it
rained, on Saturday it rained, on Sunday
it rained again, and about the middle of
the afternoon Monday it ber an again and
it kept it up until about 10 o'clock Tues
day night. Some idea of the amount of
water that fell may be had from the ob
servation of Dr. Shafer. He had a bar
rel standing out, clear from anything
which would interfere. When the rain
commenced on Monday the barrel was
empty and yesterday morning Dr. Shafer
measured the water therein and found it
to be fully ten inches deep.
Some of the farmers in the valley
report that damage has been done to
their corn by cut worms. While Hie
cases are but few it is to lie regretted
that there are any. Sam Tebbet says
about twenty acres of his corn is badly
cut and Serres Brothers report consider
able loss. These pests are in almost all
localities and frequently do a great deal
of damage. Prof. Budu in a recent arti
cle in the Des Moines (Iowa) Jtrgister
says that cut worms have been doing a
great deal of damage in that stale and
adds that the best protection against
them is fall plowing. He says that in a
lield under his supervision the crop on
fall plowing is entirely free from cut
worms while tlio portion which was not
plowed until spring is so filled with the
worms that the crop is destroyed.
A communieationf?) in the last issue
of the Ikrtihl makes a great attempt to
belittle the farming interests of this
country and tells how C. F. Cofee and
other great cattlo men, in their great
goodness of heart, advised people in
former days to desist from farming and
devote all their energy to stock. As Mr.
Collee has lieen engaged exclusively in
the stock business and is considered the
greatest cattle man in Sioux county, his
success may be taken as an example.
The assessment of a person is considered
pretty good evidence of his financ ial con
dition, we give the assessment of per
sonal property of Mr. Collee for four
years as it appears on the records, which
Is as follows: In 18HH he was assessed
on personal property $14,200; in 19 nt
