Six teen cars were loaded. C. F. Coffee had 680 head, W. L. Hoyt had a few and the rest belonged to Wyoming parties. A number went from here to witness the loading. A valuable horse belonging to N. L. Tipton was found in the pasture Satur day morning with one of its front legs broken near the shoulder. The animal Was swung up and the bone set and at last accounts was doing as well as could be expected and with the chances favor Uble for recovery. -A horse belonging to D. M. Sutton which was running in the Weir pasture Was found in the wire fence a few days bgo dead. It appears that the animal Was standing with its head over the fence Ud lightning came along the wire and kills! it as there were no marks on it to Indicate that it had been struggling in the (wire. ins have fallen in streaks during the past week. Some localities which had been dry got a good wetting and Others got light showers. Commis sioner Weber says that in the east part of the county the straw will be short but the headtf will be longer and are fill ing) better than it did last year and corn pre mises the best ever known in the his orv of the county. Taking all things' into consideration the poeple of Sioux county have no occasion to com JTn Kansas thirty counties have ap- .plied to the state for aid and more are expected to do so in the near future as the result of the drouth which has pre vailed there, and in otner places it has been nearly as bad. Letters have been received from Seward and other places in the eastern part of the state which say that the small grain, hay and pot&' toes are almost a total failure and corn is suffering terribly for want of rain, while pastures are so badly burned out that nothing green is to be seen in then When things are in such a condition in places where land is selling for forty and flftv dollars an acre and rent proportionately high it means hint times, especially for those who have l pay cash rent.

Priddy has arranged to have a well put down on his homestead. A good well helps a great deal toward making a home. The ice cream social at the court house Friday evening was quite well at tended and a good time reported by those who were present. Work on wells for J. M. Smiley and the Phillips boys will begin in a few days, and the former will likely build on his homestead in the near future. A hail in Minnesota last week de stroyed in two townships about 10,000 acres of grain, and the loss was total as the crop was nearly ready to harvest. A valuable stallion belonging lo J. M. Smiley got into a barbed wire fence the first of the week and cut his leg pretty badly. It is thought by good tivilmcnl ho will unnn lw nil ritrlif i i-W, E. PontiuS has received a new Smith-Premier type-writer which wilf prove a great convenience to him in his work." Typewriting has come to be al most a necessary business qualification for a young man. From the number of building logs which are l)eing hauled by W. CI. O'Con nor he must be going to have plenty of shelter for his family and stock. All it costs to provide shelter for stock in this locality is the labor and hence there is no reason for stock to be allowed to suffer when storms come. Rev. Glasner brought us some wheat fiom Pleasant Ridge, and J. AV. Langdon brought us a sample from his neighborhood on Monday. While the samples are not as good as they might have been, they show that there is not a crop failure in Sioux county this year and the settlers will have plenty to live on and some to spare. A special to the Bee from Geringof recent date states that artesian water was struck at that place at the depth of 331 feet, the water rising to a height!) of several feet above tha surface of the eroundtPhat is "tha nearest--artesian wntar that has been obtained to this place and indicates that a successful test couldbe made in this locality at a small cost. If some of our farmers would get a prposition in shape there ought to be lilt trouble in raising the lunds to pay forfiinking a test well. i Vlj E. Phinnev. M. D., will be' here - u,- - s about August 1st to make nis home. He has been engaged in the practice of his profession for years and has a well es tablished reputation as a physician. Dr. Phinney will also bring a complete stock of fresh, pure drugs and medicines and being a pharmacist under the laws of the state all who deal with him can rest as sured that he supplies them with what they call for and that it is put up in the proper manner. tr. Phinney has an ac quaintance with nearly all of the people from Seward county and they will be irlad to learn that he is coming, here to locate. County Superintendent Southworth informs us that he intends having an in stitute for one week, notwithstanding the fact that the commissioners made no annronriation therefor. He expects to pay an instructor what he collects from the teachers who attend and his bills will be put in to be paid as usual out of the general fund. The Journal has al ways advocated the advancement of the educational interests of the county and has the same feeling now but since the board has decided not to apply any mon- ev for institute purposes it does not -look just right for the county superin tendent to make a farce of the matter by attempting to have an institute with out funds and expect teachers to go to the trouble and expense of attending a gathering for only one week. The trouble of the institutes in the past has been that they have not lasted long enough and to make the time ono-half of what it was before makes it appear very much like childs play. It has been hardly just in the past to the teachers who have attended for people have been granted certificates and employed in some of the best paying districts who attended no institute and had been to no expense in the matter. The commis sioners evidently made no appropriation for institute for the purpose of economy of county funds and the plans of the superintendent seems to be to defeat theip- plans to a certain extent. He would feel bad if the board should re fuse to allow his bill for the time he put in at his one week institute, and after their action on the matter it would be no more than should be expected, for they have made their plans and know what use they can make of the funds at their disposal. It is hoped for the sake of justice to the teachers of the county that Mr. Southworth will re-consider tl matter and not put a hardship on them. PERSONAL. D. H. Griswold spent Sunday at Chad' ron. J.

Significance of Flowers in Japan. In a country favorable to so luxuriant a growth of flowers in a wild stale, it ceases to be a matter of surprise that from birth to death flowers are in some way associated with the daily life of the Japanese; or even that for many years after theirjleath. their graves continue to' rWeive tribute of fresh flowers. The draus of women of quality is always in harmony, both in color and in the designs embroidered upon it, with the seasons, the (lowers and the productions of the dillerent months of the year; and, as has been before mentioned, all festivals have their appropriate flowers. For wed dings', red flowers, being recognized as symbolic of the masculine principle, are chosen as the bridegroom's (lower; white ones, as feminine, representing the bride. If she goes to the bridegroom's home while flowers, in compliment to her, predominate in the decoration; while if the son-in-law is received in the bride's home, red ones are most prominent. Cn occasion, however, for house warmings, all red flowers are shunned as of dire omen. The Japanese word for red hi is phonetically the same as that denoting fire, so red dowers are avoided, and also all those whose names contain the ominous ideograph hi. On the black list of (lowers thus prohibited we find the sun-flower, lychnis, and UUum. con color, or hivie-yuri. From "A Japanese Floral Calendar," in Demorest's Family Magazine for August. American yit. There is probably not another people in the world who appreciate and demand such an excellent quality of wit as does the Yankee nation. This is partly di:e to education, but chiefly to the fact that the American people have a quick per ception; they think and act rapidly. Again, we demand wit, we are deter mined to be amused, and by some natural law, not yet explained, it has been demonstrated that werever and whenever there is a demand, there is also a supply. It is a question, some times, if the humorist, like humor, is not cultivated. Are wits born? or are they made by circumstances or neces sity? The busy American newspaper editor, whose supply of "funnyisms" has run out will go to some one of his editors or reports and say", "give me half a column of humorous paragraphs," and forthwith they are written, sparkling, bright and bubbling over with clever wit. It is not the work of the profess ional funny man, but the 'paragraphs have all the freshness and humor of one who has worked long s t the mill.- It is a question if this sort of work, often done on the spur of the moment, and without previous thought or study, is not more crisp and with a better finish than that which requires more- care in writing. It is not by any means the so called professional funny man and he has grown to be an institution who is doing all the brilliant humor which sparkles from the pages of our daily and weekly press, or our periodical literature of to-day. The Search Light in August Godey's, Happily Wedded. "A telegram in the New York Sun of July 13 announces the marriage at Wobura, Mass., of Dr. Edward Andrew Weir, a recent graduate of the Harvard medical school and a resident of Nebras ka, and Miss Ada Cledell Hummell, formerly a captain in the Salvation army in Woburn." The above appeared in the Omaha lit 4 of last Sunday and will be of interest to our readers, as the groom was for some years engaged in business in Harrison and lias many friends here who will extend hearty congratulations and best wishes for a long and prosperous married life. The newly married pair are expected to arrive here in a few days. AVanted Salesmen, to sell our choice and hardy nursery stock.
