and took out binding twine wjth which

his crop is good, except a small piece
which he did not put in properly.

The rate sheets which were issued
in conformity with the new law on
freight rates were called in b the rail
road officials and the old rates will be
in force until Lincoln and Omaha get
through fighting over the law.
On July 24 and 31 and August 7 the
F. E. & M. V. will sell round trip tickets
on the excursion coaches to Chicago for
one fare for the round trip. Such rates
will not be in effect on any other dates and
will be good to leave Chicago returning
on two dates only, four and eleven days
from date of sale.
When a person gets out and sees
what is growing in the gardens about
the country he will be convinced that
there is not much to feel bad over in
this county. We saw as fine garden
truck the first of the week as any one
could wish and it had never been water
ed excejjtby nature.
A-4he farmers have already got up a
good deal of hay but the rains of the
past week have set the grass to growing
again and some will wait for awhile and
let it grow. It is a good plan to put up
a good supply of hay and then if the
winter is hard the stock will not suffer
and if it is not needed and is properly
stacked it will keep over for another
year with little damage.
In another column appears a call for
a meeting of those interested in a county
agricultural society and an exhibit at
the state fair. Last year some pre
miums were won and the money was sent
to the treasurer of the society and the
time has come when the organization of
the society should be perfected and the
thing got in running order. It is not
only intended for those who have taken
part in the work before but for every
one in the county to come and take a
hand in the matter. In the society no
one person hawpore rights than another
and the more there are interested the
more certain will be the success of the
undertaking. The secretary has moved
out of the county and the vacancy will
' have to be filled and other work done
which will be of importance. At that

which prevail on the high priced lands in
too eastern part of the state a good ex
bibit at the state fair will be a winning
card for Sioux county. Among the new
tattlers are some who have been identi
fied with state fair work for years and
tbay will be a great help in the getting
ud of an exhibit that will win. It is
hoped that a large number of people will

-A good deal of petty thieving has
been going on in some parts, of Dawes
county of late and the people have made
up their minds to put a stop to it. It
will be the same way in this locality if
the pilfering is not stopped.
Dave Bartlett has fitted up a place
in Priddy's blacksmith shop, opposite

to do all kinds of wood work, wagon and

J-k6o& rain fell here on Thursday
arte'rnoon; a light shower fell on Friday
and another good shower fell on Monday
night. It has helped out the crops
good deal and grass is growing right
along so that hay will be much more
plentiful than was expected. Nearly an
inch and three quarters of rain has
fallen during the past week.
The poor crops seem to be prevailing
in many parts of the country. Mrs. E,
G. Hough received a letter a few days
ago from her daughter who lives in
Oregon which stated that the crops
there are very poor and that the season
has been vary cold, a Are being necessary
for comfort almost every day. That
not very encouraging for the people of
that state.
Parties who will have ponds ready
for fish this fall should get their applica
tions in as soon as possible. A list will
be sent from this office in a few days.
not later than the 15th and any who
desire us to send for them should notify
us at once. Remember there is no cost
to get the fish and no contract or agree
ment to make. If you have a suitable
place you can get the fish simply by
making application.
The reports of the seining in the
streams of the county are still coming
in. The best way to put a stop to such
work is for some one who knows of the
work to make a complaint and let the
law take its course. A good heavy fine
would cause the seiners to realize that
the laws still exist in this part of the
world. If the fish commission gets after
some of the law breakers it will make an
interesting time for they are not respect
ors of persons. If the fish are not worth
protecting they are not worth catching,
As time passes the evidence that the
action of the little ring of cute people in
the village election becomes more cer
tain. The' bond on which to carry the
case against the village treasurer, in
volving the license money to tne su
preme court was filed and approved and
it is understood that a summons issued
as that is the way in such cases, but no
summons has been served on the school
board. The action of the ring goes to
prove that the scheme is to delay the
case as long as possible so that they may
have the use of the $500 which the court
has said should be turned over to the
school district treasurer, and the tax
payers of the district can continue to
pay interest because of such retention
the funds and can also pay the expense
of carrying on the suit in the courts.

pies for the public to gaze at.

The crop reports brought in by the
farmers from most localities are quite
encouraging. Some say they will have
as good crops as they had last year and
some claim even better. Of course
there are streaks where there will be
little or nothing, but it should be borne
in mind that this is a streaked year.

and his many friends here will hope to
hear of his success.
It would be a good plan for some of
our farmers to get a proposition in shape
for putting down a test well for artesian
water. There is no use in fooling about
the matter. If a test is to be made let
the preliminary work be done and the
well put down. There are a number
who would like to have the test made
on their land and all that is necessary is
for them to make a proposition and let
the subscriptions be secured and then
the work can be commenced. The
opinion of those with whom we have
talked on tiie subject is that it should
be arranged to go not less than a
thousand feet if the move is made. It
is well worth the effort. Who will
make the proposition ?
It Promises to Surpai all Preceding
Exhibits in this Columbian Year.
Never was there a time when Ne
braska state fair makers, exhibitors and
patrons should more bestir themselves
than now. The management fully com
prehending the situation is leaving noth
ing undone to make the fair this Colum
bian year world's fair year, the best
and most extensive ever held. Indica
tions are that there will be a large atten
dance from abroad. Arrangements are
ennsumated to sell round trip tickets
from the world's fair at Chicago to the
Nebraska fair all the west and leturn
at the same reduced rates as to that
great e.v position. Also that live stocl.
on exhibition at Chicago will be released
anu bv stiecial trains reach the Nebraska
state fair in time for exhibition. Thus
the finest in the world will be with us.
From all parts of the states advices
are, says the secretary, that there will
be an unusual presentation of products.
Colorado, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri
have accepted invitations to join with
Nebraska and compete in county collec
tive exhibits. This will insure the
greatest exhibit in that line any state
has ever presented.
Extra efforts are made for the speed
ring and other attractive features. Over
two hundred speed entries have already
been sent in. This' betokens rare enter
tainment for lovers of speed.

Press Claims
Equal with the interest of those having claims against the Government is
that of INVENTORS, who often loso the benefit of valuations because of the
incompenteccy or inattention of the attorneys employed to obtain their patents.
Too much care cannot be exercised in employing competent and reliable solicitors
to procure patents, for the value of a patent depends greatly,' if not entirely, upon
the care and skill of the attorney.
With a view of protecting inventors from worthless or careless atttorneys
and of seeing that inventions are well protected by valid patents, THE PRESS
CLAIMS COMPANY has retained counsel expert in patent practice and is there
