- Bold two car-loads of oats to parties in
Lusk, Wyo. The market created by the
non-producing districts of Wyoming will
prove a source of profit to our people.
At present the price of oats in the east is
so low that it would not pay to ship
them, but west is a good market at good
prices and but a short distance to pay
freight. When the oil and mineral re
sources of Wyoming are developed it
will make a demand for all the products
of this locality.
Lost Sunday O. B. Tinkham and

Andy Christian's little 17-month-old
girl died this morning at 3 o'clock at the
residence of Z. G. Deuel, of scarlet fever.
Her death is a hard blow to Mr. Chris
tian, coming as it does, so soou after the
death of his wife, and he has the heart
felt sympathy of this community.
Phillip Unitt writes that he will in
vest in a mill here if a stock company
can be formed and some of the people
here will take stock. He thought a
18,000 or $10,000 mill would be about
the proper size. That would be better
.than a bonus, as the investors will get
their money back. There will be a mill
here this year.
The indications are that an application
will lie made to have a regularly licensed
saloon here in the future. There, is ab
solutely no question but that a saloon
of that class is preferable to having the
liquor business conducted as it has been
in the past, If a license is "granted the
party who secures it should be required
to comply with the law and at the same
time he should be protected in his right
and those who are not licensed to sell
liquor as a beverage should be prohibited
from doing so. A saloon with no screens
or blinds as the statute provides and
which closes at the time required by law
and in which gambling is prohibited is
not near so dangerous as a hole-in-the-wall
which recognizes no law.
Word was received that the special
immigrant train from Seward will start
next Wednesday, the 1st, for this place.
There will probably be from fifteen to
twenty cars in the train as some who
first intended to come on that train will
come separate, and some who have never
seen the country will come. The cars
will be decorated with streamers an
nouncing that the people on board are
bound for Sioux county, where land is
free and the climate is the best on earth,
and where free posts, fuel and building
logs can be had. They will probably
reach here Friday of next week. The
train will be the best advertisement for
Sioux county that she has yet had, and
will undoubtedly be the means of bring
ing others here to look at the country,
and wlieo they see the advantages of
fered they will locate
To the friends and neigtibors who so
kindly aud generously came to our aid in
our recent loss by fire we desire to return
our earnest and sincere thanks. The
remembrance of kindly words and deeds
will always remain with us.
