Some time ago an article was publish
ed in the Omaha lire in regard to some
money collected at South Omaha for
Montrose precinct having been misaji
propriated. W. E. Jones was the only
man from Sioux county who had any
thing to do with the matter and the fol
lowing letter shows that his actions
were all straight:
Soith Omaha, NrjJ., June 5. 1801.
W. E. Jos in, Esq.,
Leah Silt: Yours of May 27th read
and in reply will say that I bent to be
distributed to Montrose precinct $2,00.
You did not collect anything from me
here, but told mo you would rather I
would send it instead to the clerk of
Sioux county. Am sorry to hear that
the pajier made such a mistake in regard
to it, as you did all you could to help
them out. You can show this to The
JouiNALand they cau mention it in
their next issue. Hoping you will have
u rood crop tlu's year, I remain,

The young peoples' society of chris
tian endeavor will hold its 10th annual

The practice of dumping manure in
heaps around the outskirts of the town
is not a good one and the village board
should have it stopped. Chairman
Afniiie of the hoard sugcresls that some
of the manure could be used to good ad
vantage in filling up the old well north
east of towii. As it is the hole is dan
iremns and should be covered, Idled or
fenced before accident Occurs.
Secretary Furnas of the state board
of agriculture, writes that he wants two
logs from this section to be used as col
umns in the forestry building at the
world's fair at Chicago, one pine and one
ha wants the finest that can
be found. They must be 25 feet long,
not less than 10 nor more than 20 inches
in diameter at the base and taper nicely
to the top, with tho bark on. They
must be cut in tho winter so that the
hn-k-um nnt. neel on", and all that is
asked is that they be secured and placed
and he will attend to
the freight. Tho columns will be label
led from whence they come. We hope
people will keep an eye out for nice
trees of that class so that they may be
secured at the proier time. Gov. Fur
nas also expresses the hope that Sioux
county will be at the state fair with her
"Sunday clothes on."
The creamery subject is looked up
on by almost every one as a good plan
and there is no question but what a suf
ficient number of cows can be secured
to start one in'ood shape. There is al
ways a market for the product of the
dairy if it is put in the right shape, but
it is poor pay for the farmers and their
wives to mako butter and have to sell it
for 8 or 10 cents a pound. It is also
poor pay for the merchants, as one of
them remarked that ho had about 600
pounds of butter on hand for which he
paid 10, 13 and 13 cents a pound, and he
would gladly sell the lot for 8 cents a
pound. With a good, cash market for
milk tho farmers would, soon have the
cash to pay for what they buy and that
would do away with a great deal of the
credit ImsinosH of tho merchants and
would relieve them of the necessity of
handling all kinds of butwr,
