April 1st. Chadron Journal.
In conversation with Wm. Glaze
last Saturday he informed us that he
would put in about CO acres of small
grain the coming season. He also stated
that there would be no cultivated land
lay idle in Cottonwood precinct this sea
son and there will be a good deal of
breaking done in that locality. That
kind of a report means prosperity.
The farmers are getting anxious for
spring lo open so that they can get to
putting in their crops. Early sowing
and early planting have been found to be
the best here, as well as in the east and
the indications are that a much better
grade of farming will be done in future
than bus been the rule in the past. When
Ieople get to farming here as they do in
the older settled sections they will get
much tetter returns.
Last Monday some one either acci
dentally or maliciously shot a cow be
longing to Geo. H. Turner in the jaw.
The wounded animal has a badly swelled
j'iw and limy die. Mr. turner hdieves
he knows who committed the act and
feels pretty warm under the collar about
it. Jf it was done maliciously the guilty
party ought to I' punished, and in any
event no one should handle firearms so
carelessly about the town. The shot
this time struck a cow but the next time
a child may be the victim.
From the reports we gathered it is
not likely that any cultivated land will
lay idle in Sioux county unless it is little
patches that are so far from any one as
to require too much travel. Last year
was about the first year any real farm
ing was done in Sioux county and but
little good farming was done then on ac
count of the lack of feed for teams, but
the result of last year was such, that the
farmers are going at it in earnest the
coming season and not only will there be
a large acreage sown but a large amount
of breaking will be done for the seasons
Last week H. A. Cunningham re
ceived a telegram informing him that
his father had been killed by the cars at
his home in Wisconsin. A letter came
later which stated that Sir. Cunningham
was engaged in unloading a car of wire
and an extra train came along which
was not expected. The whistle of the
engine frightened his team and it started
to run and dragged him on the track on
which the train was approaching and
both horses and driver were killed. The
report states that the train was running
at a rapid rate and was not to stop, so
there was no chance of getting out of the

We are informed that Mrs. A. W.
Mohr has found a successful way to stop
the growth of puppies. They had a
very pretty little puppy and she thought
it would be so nice to always keep it
small as a pet for her little ' girl. She
gave it some whisky and It proved a
success, for it will grow no more.
As to the weather this winter, so far
we have nothing to complain of in Sioux
county. We have had some cold
weather, to be sure, but not. to compare
with many other places. Eastern kan
sas has had the coldest weather ever
known in the state. The peach buds are
all considered killed and many of the
trees; vegetables and fruits frozen in the
cellars to a great extent, and Iowa has
lost more house-plants than ever before
known, while ours live and blossom in a
log house aud without the aid of a base
burner, too. Sioux county has its ad
vantages as well as some disadvantages,
but we are encouraged as to its future.

Some trouble is reported from school
districts in regard to the quality of
teachers employed and some even blame
the superintendent for issuing certificates
to some applicants. This is not right
for more than one reason. In the first
place there is a demand for more teach
ers than can be supplied under the cir
cumstances. The school districts are to
a great extent to blame for they attempt
to get teachers at too low a price. There
are two teachers in Sioux county who
hold first grade certificates. One of
them is teaching for $30 per month and
the other for f 35.. At such figures it is
not to be expected that teachers will
come to the county unless they have
some other object than following teach
ing. -This matter should have the con
sideration of the patrons of the schools,
and at the annual meeting provision
should be made to pay good wages, even
if a less number of months of school be
provided. With such provision there
will be no trouble to get good teachers
and the children will derive more benefit
than to go to school the year around to
an inferior teacher.
