- State Supt, Goudy has requested the
county superintendent to send any school
work he may secure to be used in mak
ing up a display for inspection at the
office of the state superintendent. The
teachers should assist the superintendent
in any way they can in this matter.
Homestead filings are reported as be
ing made right along, although but few
new people are noticed. A good many
filings are made by those who have been
here for a good while but have delayed
filing until it has become risky for them
to delay if they desired to secure a cer-
tain quarter section and so they have
hastened to put the papers on it
The weather is quite a good deal
colder today than it has been for some
time and we may have a good deal of
genuine winter for a while now. It
would be much mora satisfactory to
have the cold weather now and have an
early spring than to have winter linger
in the lap of spring and prevent the far
mers from getting their crops in at the
proper time.
Postmaster Hough returned from
Lincoln yesterday without having set
tied the U. S. senatorial question,
County ' Attorney Conley is at large
somewhere in the eastern portion of the
state and he. may steal a march on
Hough and slip into Lincoln and have an
Independent elected senator and then
Hough would shed hot, scalding, briny
tears because he left too soon.
There is t?lkt-f. new Nmins sntrr-
prises being established in Harrison in
the near future. There is no danger but
what the tow a will keep fully up to the
demands of the country. As fast as the
country it settled the town will grow,
and as a rule the town keeps ahead of
the country. It is that fact which
causes hard times and failures among the
business men of the place. So far Har
rison I tan been very fortunate in that re

Another invoice of job stock was re

People appreciate the quality of job
work done by Tltt Journal and hence its
job press is kept pretty busy.

! Don't wait until your are roady to
sow your wheat and then decide that
you have no time to dip it in vitriol
wuter. Prepare for it and do it now
while you have time and then it will be
ready at seeding time.
The farmers should make a effort to
secure first-class grain for seed. Do not
be satisfied with any kind of wheat that,
you may have hut get the best obtain
able and then put it in properly and har
vest will bring you a reward.
When telling your friends of the ad
vantages of Sioux county do not fail to
tell them that the county is out of debt
and owes no county .bonds and has over
45 miles of railroad within its borders,
and as a result taxes will be. low.
A man by the name - of Antrim has
purchased the farm formerly owned by
J. F. Pfost, near Bodaro and has also se
cured the claim of Jesse Beans. : People,
ore beginning to realize that Sioux
county real estate is good stuff to have.
Letters are pouring in daily from
people in the east who want to buy land
or rent a place that suits them. The
number of new settlers whol will come
to Sioux county during this year will ex
ceed that of any previous year in its his
tory. The boys have about concluded to
wait until winter before they have a
skating rink. They had a lot of water
put into it but the weather was so warm
that it did not freeze and all there is to
show for it is the experience they have
gained. There is a chance for plenty of
ice forming weather yet, however, be
fore spring opens,
"The Danville Breeze has the follow
ing; "If you bave frequent headaches,
dizzines and fainting spells, accompanied
by chills, cramps, corns, bunions, chil
blains, epilepsy and jaundice it is a sign
you are not well, but are liable to die
any minute. Pay your subscription a
year in advance and make yourself solid
for a good obituary notice."
It is reported that the railroad offi
cials have ordered Agent Albertson from
Deadwood to Casper and Alex. Thorn
dyke is now running on the Cbadron
Casper flyer. These two men are well
known as the ones the company always
keep at the front and adds to the indica
tions that the work of extension will
soon begin. May the day hasten.
A few days ago Phil McCann re
turned from a trip to the eastern part of
the state and he informed us that the
people there are all seeking for invest
ments in land. The .demand is greater
there than ever before and those who
have no . land or have sold are
looking to the cheaper lands rSf
the west and the inquiries for home
stead lands are numerous.
Within the past ninety days about
33 farms in the vicinity of Harrison
have passed to eastern bona fide pur
chasers, the price paid ranges from f 700
to $1200. This statement is on the au
thority of M. Gayhart, county treasurer
of Sioux county. There will be a num
ber of families, actual settlers, go into
Sioux county along the Hat Creek valley
in the spring. We may gather from this
and from some transfers about here that
real estate is starting upward. For the
post three years real estate has tended
downward, struck the lowest possible
point, and now begins steadily to rise.
We have no reason to be discouraged and
may reasonably hope to see some activ
ity in land transfers on the opening of
spring. Eastern farmers realize that
now ig the time to secure some of our
chenp land and sell their own land that
bus become too valuable to hold.Cmir-

The proceeds of the ball are to be used to
purchase new musie and meet the other
necess:iry expenses of the band so that
those who attend will have a good time
and also help the boys along in their
band work.
Grey wolves are getting quite
troublesome in the vicinity of Running
Water. J. W. Earnest informed us that
he has had three cattle killed by them
recently, one of those killed being one of
his registered black cows. " A few days
ago K. P. Lindsey caught one of the
grey wolves in a trap which was at
tached to a chunk of wood. The ani
mal dragged the weight to a ravine
where Mr. Lindsey found it, having gone
out on horse back without any weapon,
The wolf started to run and broke the
chain and took refuge in a rocky ledge.
ne was stoneu ana alter a little came
out and attacked Mr. Lindsey, who
thought for awhile he would be meat for
the wolf, but he finally made him re
treat into the rocks. He then went and
got help and killed the beast.
