-C. E. Holmes and J. A. Green ar-nv-isl
from Lincoln yesterday. They are
feeling good over the work done at the
state fair. The exhibit from Sioux coun
ty attracted a great deal of attention and
lied forth a ;reat many favorable
comments. Ihev believe that the result
will lie that Sioux countv will secure a
pood many new people. Farmers are
'getting tired of paying from $:i tt "i an
acre rent each year w hen they can pet
land of their own for nothing. Eli
Smith has not yet returned, having
stopped at other ioirits to do missionary

When he went to
the state fair he bunted out the Sioux
county exhibit and was so well pleased
that he came up with Messrs. Green and
Holmes to see for himself. He came to
Nebraska in HM and knows what a new
country is. He says there are a number
of his acquaintances w ho have been pay

He returned from his ttrij) east sfime

he distributed several thousand circulars
relative (o Sioux county nnd the harvest
excursions, many of which were dis
tributed at the Iowa State Fair at iJes
Moines. He s-tys he feels confident that
good will result from the work. A great

A Difference of Opinion.
Editor Walker says, "do not coax peo
ple here, this has already been done too
much." We venture the opinion that
there is not another individual who pre
sides over the columns of a newspaper in
Nebraska ho holds to such an opinion.
The state business men's association is
getting up a grand advertising scheme
for Nebraska and thirty-five counties
have prepared to take art in the work.
The plan was submitted to a number of
officials and business men at Lincoln and
heartily approved by the governor, sec
retary of state, auditor, judges of the
district court, mayor and others, while
the leading men in many of the counties
are liaru at worn on tlie plan ana will
carry it to 'success. Perkins county
which has not so many advantages to
offer to settlers as has Sioux county,
"coaxed" llfty men who came out on the
first harvest excursion to buy farms.
Box Butte county has an organization
which has sent a numlier or men east to
"coax" people to come and locate in that
county. iJawes county is working to be
represented in the advertising train
which will pass through the east to
"coax" people to come to Nebraska and
other counties and cities are doing like
wise, while George Walker and his Her
ald sit back and say tlo not "coax" peo
ple to come here. The entire state of
Nebraska bits wen seiueu uy coaxing
people to come and locate and what but
a few years ago was considered almost a
desert; waste has been transformed into
one of the greatest producing states of
the nation and its resources have been
but partially developed.
Fifteen-sixteenths of Sioux county is
yet vested in the United States and until
a great deal more of it is secured by in
dividuals there will be little or no in
crease in values, hence it is to the inter
est of every prorty owner in the
countv to use every opportunity to
'coax" people to come here to live.
A Coining Pleasure.
Miss Svlvia Chapman, of Oakland,
Cal., will arrive on Saturday on a visit
to Mrs. J. II. (look. Miss Chapman is an
elocutionist of rare merit and has al
rmiAv won distinction in her profession
and during her stay here will give an en
tertainment to our people. The exact
date has not yet lieen decided on, but due
notice will be given and none snouiu tan

Oakland (Cal) Enquirer will give some
idea of her ability:
Really, one finds room but for com
mendation in Miss Chapman's reading.
It is rare, as raro as refreshing to dis
cover a reader who gives no olfense, of
ranting, of mannerism or had form in
some resjiect. Miss Chapman is just a
"natural born" reader, devoid of aff ecta

Tlie Wralker-Hough faction had every
man they could muster in the precinct

The exhibit of Sioux county displays
both taste and enterprise. It consists of
a log hut trimmed with corn, oats,
wheat, rye and in fact every species of
grain or vegetable raised in the county.
The logs in tlie hut are varieties of tim
ber grown in tlie county while there are
boards and shingles of the same material
manufactured in the county. There are
also samples of building rock found with
in easy reach of the principal towns.

Sioux county was in the "old log
