V. E. Moore says he has a fine field
of wheat and the shocks stand very thick
on the ground. Parties who ought to be
good at judging such things say it will
yield thirty bushels per acre.
A pretended orresijndi-ut of the

J'H H.CVI. i exceedingly disreputable, and
that the Il nibl is respectable. There is
no accounting for some people's taste.

Last SiU unlay evening a little dis
turbance occurred and some ugly talk
indulged in, and an attempt made to
strike, but no one was hurt. The parti

thought letter of it later.
l'lnlip Brinkerhoir arrived last
Thursday from Seward to take a position
in The Joi hnaI- oflice. The business has
increased so, more help was needed and
now ve are prepared to do, job work ou
short notice in first class style.
A separater arrived a few days ago
for J. E. Wullace, and will soon heat
work. We are informed that there will
be other machines in the vicinity so that
there will be- plenty of opportunity for
the farmers to get their threshing done
in good season.
Editor Walker says the last issue
of the JovnSAL teemed wiUi. falsehoods
and blanderu against some of the oldest
and best citizens in the county. Of
course, what Walker says must bo so,
for is not his reputation established.
A. R. Kennedy has 80 acres of w heat
which in estimated at an average of 20
bushels per acre and his other grain is
equally as good. The indications are
that wheat will bring at least a dollar a
bushel, which will make it profitable for
the farmers. The quality of Sioux
county wheat is fine.
Oco. Olinger says he treated his seed
wheat to a bath in vilnohzed water be-
. . , , , t l 1 : 1
fore no win!? and ttie result is mat, wuno
there was some smut in the need there is
not a smut head in the crop. Hie treat
ment is cheap and simple and other
r.. will do well to follow his ex-
;unple. George says that those who
i...va wn his lie d estimate that it win
yield 2! bushels per acre.

It is reported that the settlers along

Judge Kinkaid has sent word post
poning the fall term of the district court
tor thirty days. So that instead of Sep-
""-timu, a w,u October 8th when
strict court will convene in Sioux
county. This will make it much belter
for the farmers who will have to attend
court for they will not 1 so busv in
October as they will lie next month.
Rev. Rorick leaves one week from
xt Monday for Iowa. He will take
large of a church in the Atlantic
strict of tho lies Moines conference.
Mrs. Rorick will go to Kansas to visit
relatives and will then iom her husband
bis work in Iowa. The friends of the
pastor and his lady will wish them suc
cess in their new field of labor.
A peculiar accident happened to
Fred Betschen a few days ago. He was
trying to drive a colt into the barn
when the animal kicked, striking him in
the breast with one hoof and on the
thumb of the left hand with the other.
The bone of the thumb was broken and
the joint thrown out of place. The colt
Wiis a put and had never been known to
kick at anyone previous to that.
The fact that the farm loan business
has again opened up in this part of the
country is an evidence of renewed conlid-
ence in Northwest Nebraska. The loans
will, of course, lie small, but small loans
are preferable to anything of the wild
cat nature. There have been very few
forclosures in Sioux county while in
many counties the district court docket
is loaded with such cases and that fact
also speaks well for Sioux county.
It is claimed by those in a position
to know that there is nearly as much nu
triment in the stalk, leaves and husks of
corn as there is in the ear. It is there
fore good economy to cut it at the prop
er time. The difficulty has been the cost
of the work, but a r,'urml micliir.n ban
been gotten up with which two men anil
one horse can cut and shock from 200 to
300 shocks a day, This not only greatly
decreases the cost, but enables farmers
to secure the corn fodder when it is in
the best stage.
A number of our farmers are pre
paring to sow a good deal of wheat this
fall, and we see by our exchanges that
the suae tiling will lie done in the other
counties of Northwest Nebraska. It is a
settled fact that this pm-t of the state
produce fine small grain, and the
next thing in order is to (hid what var
ieties will give the liest results. Winter
wheat lias done well whenever tested
and next season a large amount of win
ter wheat will bo harvested here. It
will bring better profits and will enable
the farmers to handle their work in
With wheat starting in at 73 cents a
bushel and good prospects of its going
biMu.c and a vield of from 15 to 30
bushels per acre, there is no reason lor
the people of this part of the country to
complain. That is much bettor than to
get from 10 to 13 bushels per acre in tne
east and then have to give the greater
part of it for rent on high-priced land,
Now all that is necssary is for the farm
ers to work their land and put in their
crops and care for them just as they do
in the east and there will be no danger
of failure. Poor farming dyes not pay
in any country.
In addition to II le county exhibit at
the state fair Sioux county will be
represented by Messrs, Schulz andFeyer
herm who have spent a good deal of
time and money in making collection of
petrifactions and other curiosities to be
found in the lbit Creek country and have
a portable building, and this they intend
to take to Lincoln and other large fairs
during tho fall. There are many things
found in tho Hat Creek basin of groat in
terest to sciontillc people, as is evidenced
by tho eastern colleges sending for speci
mens and paying good prices for thorn
and tho collection which Messrs. Schulz
and Eeyerherm will exhibit wi'l attract
a good deal of attention.
