On last Friday Judge Barker received
word that his father had died the night
before. He had been sick for some time
and gradually grew weaker, but it was
thought that there would be some no
ticeable change in his condition before
the end came, but such was not the case.
Deceased was 68 years old, and was well
known to many of the people here. He
was born in England and came to the
United States when a young man. The
Judge left Friday evening and has taken
the remains to Lake Geneva, Wis., to
place them beside his mother who was
buried there some years ago. Ue lias

Saturday. The result of which was
that there will be a county collective
exhibit made at the state fair. It is now
in order for every one who has anything
good in the lines that go to make up an
exhibit to get it ready and notify the
committee who are to have charge of
the exhibit or the secretary of the
society so that it may be arranged for,
There is no reason why a good exhibit
cannot be made this year. Those who
have taken the most interest in the
work state that a better exhibit can be
made this year than was ever made by
the county. Last year a good premium
was won and a belter one should be tried
for this year. The premiums offered by
tlie society for collections do not repre
sent large sums but they show tlr.it the
feeling is all right. It is admissable for

The superintendent of the fish hatch
eries writes The Journal that he and the
fish car will be up in this locality some
time in October, due notice of the exact
date will be given in time so that those
who have applied for fish may be on
hand to receive them. There is plenty
of time for others to make application if
they can get their ponds ready. If they
are put in the ponds this fall you will
have fish to eat just one year sooner
than you will if you wait until next
year. What is the use of delaying?
, The editor of this paper got a letter
from Phil Unitt yesterday in which he
said that the corn in Seward county
would not make more than half a crop
if it did that. Wheat is yielding from
five to twenty bushels per acre, the
cases of the latter yield being few and
far between. Oats have to be good for
this year to yield twenty bushels per
acre and weigh from fifteen to twenty
pounds to the bushel. In nine cases out
of ten the grain will no more than pay
the cost of harvesting and in many cases
no more than the threshing bill. Tame
pastures he says are about burned out
and he has been feeding hay to his cat
tle for the last month. Many of the
renters will lose all they had as they had
to give security for tne rent and the
crop will not pay it. He says the peo
ple who came here should not feel dis
couraged for they are better off than
they would have been if they had stayed
there and rented land. He further says
that there are a good many who intend
to come to Sioux county this fall to see
what they can secure.
