For some time correspondence has
been going on between parties here anil
purties interested m the creamery uusi
ness, w ith a view to securing an estab
lishment of tliat kind. The informa
tion is received that with one hundred or
more cows a plant could lie operated
successfully, and there is little doubt
that the milk from that number of cows
could lie secured to start with. The
plan is for the farmers to own the fac
tory and then if it pays to sell tho milk
and the creamery also pays, it makes a
mind profit for the farmers. Some of
the largest creameries in the state start
ed with the milk of from SO to la cows,
nnd tliH business has increased until they
now pay from $0,000 to $10,000 a month
for cream, me business gives me uum
ers a cash income every month and with
ready cash to pay for what he noeds the
farmer is a e-reat deal more independent.
The correstKjndence on the subject can be
seen at mis ohm e. u uwao
parts of the county desire to know more
about the matter we will cheerfully an

The sugar beet committee has been
negotiating with the factory at Norfolk
and with the F. E. &M. V. railroad com
pany with reference to the shipping of
beets from Harrison to Norfolk. The
managers of the factory say that they
will be glad to receive all the beets that
can lie sent them, and it is believed that
the railroad jieople will make a rate at
which the growers can afrord to ship
them. Tho B. & M. realize tho impor
tance of tho industry and made a rate
early in the year at which farmers in
Box Butte county can ship to the sugar
factory at Grand Island and it is safe to
iLmelhat the F. E. A ,M. V. will Jo
likewise. It is not expected that a great
amount of profit will accrue to tho ship
rZ this year, but it will bring them a
ittle ready money and will also mlah
ish a lsis on which they can figure for
the future. The beets are reported as
looking fine and tho prospects are good

On last Monday afternoon Anna
daughter of John Pietersen, left the
home of her parents on Indian creek, to
go to a neighbor's about two miles dis
tant on an errand. Not returning in a
reasonable time, the family became un
easy and when upon inquiry it was
found that she had not been at the place
for which she had started, their fears
I really increased. A general search
was instituted and kept up until Wednes
day afternoon, when the lifeless body of
the missing girl was found lying par
tially in a pool of water about a mile
home. A messenger wae sent for the
coronor, and Dr. Shafer and Sherill
Roidy went to the family residuce, about
thirty miles north of here, and held an
inquest on Thusday. The inquiry show
ed that the girl was subject to sinking
spells, having had one while at school on
the preceding 1-riuay, and the circum

from such a cause and a verdict was re

Gen. Grosvenor lias tendered his re
signation as member of the immigration
committee to visit Europe, of which he
was-chairman. The reason for the act
is assaults made upon hiui by the press
and in his resignation he said: "I can
not afford to hold office to the injury of
my party." Such sentiments show that
he is jiossessed of a true, manlv spirit
and w ell worthy the respect of all.
A man by the name of Waggoner was
hung in Wyoming, about forty miles
from Newcastle, a few days ago for
stealing horses. He is said to have been
a notorious horse rustler, liaving accum
ulated a fortune in cash and 1,000 head
of horses, partly by rustling, but mostly
by buying stolen stock. While lynching
is to be deprecated, there are times when
an outraged public is almost forced to
take the law into its own hands as a
matter of self-protection.
At Hay Springs there 1ms b-?en some

Under the heading "Calves vs. Sugar

calves and then follow the advice of the
articlu referred to which says: '-Let
every farmer who can raise 100 try this
investment, giving tue neiters and then
increase good care and plenty of feed."
Every one should get all the stock he
can give good care and plenty of feed to.
