agreed to unoear at the otlice of Justice
Kastor the first of the week for a hear
ing, but they failed to keep their
nromisp. evidently tliilikintr that the
matter would be dropied. In this they
were mistaken for the people oil along
tlio river, und in fact all over the county
who want the law complied with and the
(Ish with which the streams have been
stocked allowed lo grow, ure watching
the matter with interest, and more than
that lawubiding people of Dawes county
have sent assurance of their aid and
support in the prosecution of the van
dals. We did not learn the names of
any of the parlies but are informed that
they will lie well looked after by the
county attorney mid it is quite likely
that if necessary the state llsh commis
sion will take a hand in the matter.
The case is an miorlant one, for if it is
drnped it will be saying practically
that all may seine as much as they
please mid destroy all Urn young llsh

There is some talk of a county seat
contest in Sioux county this summer.
A proposition will in all probability be
submitted for the removal of the county
seat from Harrison to Andrews. It is
owing to the lack of good water facili
ties at Harrison that the movement has

J. w. cott opened the ice cream
season last Monday evening and served
it to a large number of the people.
G. W. Stevens received notice the
(irst of the week that one of the horses
w hich he had sent to Edgemont had died
A number have asked if they can
get any gold fish when the fish car
conies up. There will be no gold fish to
be had before fall ar,d there is no cer
tainty that there will then.
At Casper, Wyo., they are. shearing
sheep by steam. That will doubtless
be fully as humane as was the treatment
given the sheep by the professional
shearers who formeily did the work.
We are in receipt of a letter from
J. G. Morns who is at Jewetta, C'al, He
says he and his family made the trip all
right and like the place very much. It
has been very dry in that state, the
southern portion being completely dried
out and as a result times are hard.
If looks as if the creamery project
would have to be given up for this year
as it is getting so late in the season. It
would lie a good plan for the farmers to
begin right now to make their arrange
ments so as to have one ready to begin
operations next spring. The main draw
back to tlie establishment of a plant this
season has been the fact that the farmers
had no money with which to pay for the
stock in the company and the business
men were not able to take all the stock.
If the matter is taken hold of now and
the farmers set themselves about it with
the determination of having IK','.") or oO
ready to put into the enterprise during
the coming fall or winter it will be com
paratively an easy matter to establish
the creamery; If the ow ners of cows
want to get more than eight or ten cents
a pound for their butter they know they
can do it by taking hold of the creamery
project and making it a go. It would be
lielter if the furmers would own nil the
stock and conduct tho business them
selves for then they would have no one
to kick nt und charge with not running
it in the interest of the farmers. There
is no doubt that a creamery here would
lie a paying institution both to patrons
and stockholders if once established and
it would pay tho farmers better than
anv oilier class.
