'"tTOiail and filed on a piece of land
i Ivw milt-s north, is exe ted in a few
l.iyn with his family to make his horn
in bioux county.
It is reported that other parlies are
expected here about the 1st of March to
look over the field with a view to put
ting in a mill. It is evident that the
tine quality of wheat raised in Sioux
county is Incoming known in milling
circles and they are going to investigate.
leo le nuy rest assured that they can
their milling done at Harrison by the
time this season's crop is ready to be
last Thursday I. Mulkins, accom
panied by his wife and three children, ar
rived to make his home in Sioux county.
Mrs. Mulkins is a daughter of Geo. Slack,
who has a claim a few miles southeast of
town. The new arrival will soon file on
a quarter section of Uncle Sam's land.
Although there has been a good deailAW. Moh
of wheat shipped from Harrison it is evi-h!ose a yaluul
dent that it is not all gone. On last Sat
urday our grain buyer, G. Guthrie,
bought five hundred and fifty bushels of
wheat. It is estimated that about seven
car loads of wheat yet remain in this vi
cinity to bo shipped out.
It is reported that a passenger train
is to 1 put on this line on April 1st. It
is to he hoped that the rumor will prove
true. Better train service would be ap
preciated by the people along the line,
hut it cannot be expected until there is
more business and the best way to bring
that about is for every one to work to
get wore people here.
Nels Engbret informs us that four
new houses will be erected on the table
near his place east of town, on claims
which have lately been taken. Just tell
your friends to watch the gait Sioux
county strikes in the line of settlement
this season and they will see that if they
want to get a quarter section of govern
ment land they will have to get a move
Letters are being received daily by
our people from eastern parties who are
looking for a location. From the present
outlook the population of Siouxjjpunty
will lie more than doubled within the
next twelve months. The advertising
that has been done in the past year or so
will result in a great deal of good to the
county, All that is necessary is to keep
it up and it will not be long until every
claim in Sioux county will be a valuable
County Treasurer Gayhart arrived
Tuesday after a absence of five weeks,
lie went to Lincoln to make his annual
settlement with the state treasurer and
from there he went to Omaha to visit
his son, John, and while there he received
word of the serious illness of his mother
in Wisconsin. He went at once to the
home of his mother who lingered for live
days after his arrival and then died at
the ripe age of 84 years. The disease
which caused her death was the grippe,
Mr. tfaynart slates that a great many
people have died of that disease in that
locality. He further states that times
are very dull there. Last year that part
of the country wvas drouth-stricken and
prairie hay is wiling for $1(5 per ton, and
other kinds of feed in proportion and it
has to be shipped in from, long distances.
It would be a gpod plan ' for some of the
people there to come to Sioux county.
A report from the Chadron .sugar
lieet convention has been received. It
was expected that a representative of
the Norfolk factory would ' be present,
but by some means he did not get the
date right and did not get to Chadron un
til Monday. He talked business on his
arrival and stated that seed would be
furnished at 10 cents per pound and that
implements would lie furnished $1 per
acre if fiOO acres would be put in. He
guaranteed the freight rate from Chadron
to Norfolk would not exceed 80'cents per
ton, and the committee feel confident
that a rate from Harrison of not more $1
per ton conld bo obtained. The Norfolk
man further staled that if .TOO acres of
beets are raised at Chadron this season
and prove satisfactory, and a guarantee
of 5,000 acres for next year made a fac
tory will lie secured next year without
question. Now tho question fs for our
farmers to decide whether or not they
want to raise beets this year and ship
them to Norfollt. The JgtrnaL would
like very much to see at least a few
acres put in and' the product shipped to
tho factory. r It might not pay very big,
but it. would without doubt pay good
wage for all the time spent in the work
and tho result would be a guide for fu
ture, work in that lino. The local com
mittee will bo glad to do anything they
can to assist the farmers in arranging
the matter. , A circular showing the ma
chinery can be seen at this ollice and ac-

Mr. Henry went at once to Ardmore to

The prospects for a mill at Harrison
are again bright. Ddring the past week
C. E. Boyd has been looking over this lo
cality and the advantages offered for a
milling enterprise, lie 'is a practical
miller of twenty years experience and he
knows what is heeded to' make a mill a
success. Ho saw a mittiber of sariiples
of wheat grown here and pronounced it
tho finest milling quality he had found.
The test is higher, tho bran thinner and
condition belter than that found iri any
other portion of the state. Mr. Boyd
represents capital sufficient to build and
operate a mill and is not ' looking for a
bonus, but for a place where wheat' of
gooj quality can be grown, with an op
portunity of finding a markat for the
Hour. ' Here he found those condititions
and also the cheapness of stonexand lum
ber for building purposes and the cheap
ness of fuel, both wood and" coal are
items of" .importance and cannot be had
at any other point where he hasi been
The result is that Mr. Boyd returned
to the east the (Irst of the week to report
to his business associates and he stated
that his report would be very favorable
in regard to Harrison and in ten days or
two weeks a decision would be reached
and if it is decided to build here work will
soon be commenced.
The mill will be .what is known as the
long roller process of seventy-five barrels
daily capacity and an elevator in con
nection so that all the farmers raise can
be taken care of. The parties are looking
for a permanent location, and will not
build simply for a speculation but by
getting good wheat, such i as is grown in
Sioux county and using the best machin
ery they will produce a quality of flour
which can be put on tho market and
compete successfully with the product
of any mill In the country.
In, view of tho prospects for a mill the
farmers should get in hiadiness so that
in case it is built they can put in a few
more acres of wheat thon they had first.

Some dissatisfation is reported in
school district No. 19 over the removal
of the school house, as it is claimed that
it is far from tne centre of the district
and not on a public road and can lie
reached by some of the pupils only by
travelling a long distance out of their
way. The legality of the removal will
likely come before the county superin
tendent, who will without doubt, see
that all parties have justice. Such mat
ters nre always unpleasant in a neighbor
hood and frequently a good deal of bit
terness arises from the location of the
district school house, but if the action
is taken legally there is nothing for the
disappointed ones to do but to submit.
