Rev. Giffen occupied the pulpit at

It is reported that the store of H.
W. MacLachlan at Ardmoie, S. D., was
burglarized last Saturday night but to
what extent was not learned.
Saturday was a busy day with our
merchants. People liad to wait some
time in many instances before they could
make their purchases on account of the
throngs in the stores.
Farmers are getting their seed ready.
Care should be taken to get seed of the
best quality. It costs no more to grow
good grain than it does poor, and the re
sult is always more satisfactory.
A surprise party was sprung on Miss
Myrtle Pontius last evening. While
absent from homo for a short time her
young friends gathered at her home and
awaited her return, and then proceeded
to spend a merry evening.
There was a good attendance at the
sale of Dunn Bros, last Saturday, but
the bidding was not as spirited as at
former sales. The demand for horses
seems to be pretty well supplied, except
for large work teams of horses or mules.
The best evidence that the new
comers are well pleased with Sioux
county is the fact that they are writing
to their friends in the east to come and
get homes while the opportunity is good.
That is the best kind of advertising the
county can have.
The present outlook for a prosierous
season is good. It is to be hoped that
our farmers will arrange to turn over
more of the original sod this spring.

It is reported that eastern capital is
again beginning to seek investment in se
curities on western real estate. The poor
crops of 1890 and the work of the calam
ity howlers scared capital away but the
renewed prosperity and the westward
tide of immigration which set in has re
newed the faith of those who have
money and they are beginning to realize
that western land makes good security.
People east are beginning to make
inquiry concerning Harrison as a ousi-

Workers in
Sioux County.
A call is hereby issued for a Sunday
school convention for Sioux county to be
held at Harrison, early in May, at which
time it is proposed to organize a County
Sunday School Association. The object
of said association is to make some one
'esponsible for the maintenance of the
work throughout the county. The ex
ecutive committee will be expected to
gather and collate statistics, to corres
pond with and encourage the schools, ar
range for local and county conventions,
secure speakers for the same and do any
other necessary work to increase the
number and efficiency of the Sunday
schools in the county. The date and pro
gram of the coining convention will be
announced later. An effort will be
made to secure E. A. Stevens of Grand
Island or some other member of the
state executive committee to deliver at
least one address during the meeting. It
earnestly urged that all Sunday
schools in the county which have sus
pended for the winter be reorganized at
once, and that they begin to mane ac
tive preparations for the convention.

terns of information immediately to
