How to (iet Fish.
The Jocrsal is in receipt of a letter in
regard to fish for stocking ponds, from
Supt. O'Brien. He has a large variety
of fish and any one sending in an applica
tion will be furnished a supply of fish
during the next year. The different
kinds of fish are distributed at different
seasons so that all are not supplied at
the same time. It would be a good plan
for those having streams and opportuni
tunities for fitting up fish ponds to do a
little work and get a pond fitted up and
stock it with fish. It will prove a source
of pleasure and profit to every one who
goes to the trouble of making a pond.
Application can be sent in direct to the
commission at South Bend, Neb., and
we will gladly assist any who desire us
to do so in the matter. The following
letter will be of use to those interested
South Bend, July 27, 1893.
L. J. Simmons, Esq., Harrison Neb.
Dear Sir: In response to your letter
regarding a supply of fish for the
streams In Sioux county, will say, if you
will have the parties send in their ap
plications they will receive a suitable
supply of finh from our next annual de
livery. We will distribute Black Bass,
German Carp, Crappies, Sunflsh and Cat
lish from the 15th of September until the
loth of Novenilier. We will distribute
Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout, Salmon
Trout and Lock Lev-en Trout during the
months of Feb'y. and March and we dis
tribute Wall-eyed Pike in May and June.
Any person having a suitable place may
obtain a supply of any of these kinds of
fish during the season in which they are
distributed, you can have the parties
send in their own applications or you
can send them in for them. We will be
pleased to hear from you again on the
subject, and hope to get better ac
quainted when we go up in your
country. Yours Truly,
M. E. O'Brien.
An Appeal For Aid.
Mason City, Neb., July 14, 1892.
To the Charitable People of Nebraska:
It is generally known by the tele
graphic dispatches to the daily jlapers of
Omaha and Lincoln-, that this village
was visited by a very destructive cy
clone on Friday evening, July 1, 1893,
which totally destroyed many of the
resident and business houses and all the
public buildings of our town.
Qur school district is already bonded
to the limit of the law, and the financial
condition of the people will not allow
the repairing of one loss in ten. The
losses are not confined to our town, but
many of the farmers in our vicinity are
Without shelter, and it is the feeling of
our citizens that t'.iejr Share equally
with the town in any aid that may be
The loss is estimated at from thirty to
fifty thousand dollars, abd we are greatly
in need of help. It is with pride that we!
refer to the fact that Our people have
always responded liberally to any of our
neighbors who have met with such dis
asters, and we would ask each and every
person who may be aware of our loss to
contribute as liberally as his or her finan
cial condition may allow.
We have selected Mr. John A. Hall, an
old and respected citizen, as treasurer,
any funds may be remitted to him1, on a
guarantee on the part of evel-y btisiness
man of Mason City that such funds will
be extended for the rebuilding of our
school house and bhtit'cliej.
