The attention of the editor of

not be long until tlie new
tiers will begin to arrive. Henrv
Linderaan will be here the first of ne
month and J. C. Noel is preparing to
come as soon us he can get his arrange
ments made to leave his present home,
and people tell us almost every day of
those they expect to come. A gentle
man will be here the first of the month
to look up a location to establish a herd
of thorough-bred Hereford cattle and such
herds help to build up a country.
There is quite a difference in the
tone of tlie farmers now from what there
was a year ago. At that time each one
wanted to put in crops but could not put
in as much as they desired because of
lack of seed and feed for their teams.
Now they have those necessaries and
are looking for land to rent and the pros
pects are that no land that is available
will lay idle this year, and a great deal
of breaking will be done, all of which
Monday night about eleven
o'clock Ed., the 14-year-old son of YV. C.
O'Connor, who lives east of town, took a
horse from his father's barn and rode off.
Mr. O'Connor discovered that the horse
was gone and tracked him into the hills
west of town that night. Next morning
he again took up the trail and followed
it to B. F. Johnson's place where he
found the boy and horse. Taking the
horse he started for home and told the
boy he could stay and work for Mr. John
son. The boy started along on foot.
His father told him he had better get on
the horse and ride, which he did but the
father retained hold of the halter of tlie
horse. The boy suggested tliat they
ride faster and on his promising that he
would go home his father let loose of the
halter and the boy rode off, but instead
of coming home he gave his father the
slip and he and the horse are still miss
ing. It may not. have occurred to the
boy that he was committing a crime but
should his father see fit to take legal
action it would likely result in a term at
tlie reform school. It breaks up the
work team of Mf. O'Connor whjch will
be a great inconvenience With the spring
work just coming on.
