On Tuesday morning the lead engine
on a double-header stock train' from the

the crossing near the depot. The animal
was injured so that she '.mil to be killed.
The contract for building the new-
school house at Andrews was awarded to

will take action to award the job.
The work of making Alls of the trea

Phil Unitt arrived last week with
two car-loads of cattle for his ranch

the east part of the state.
Word was received yesterday that
Red Cloud accompanied by his son and
a number of sub-chiefs and leading men
of tlie Ogallalus were at Andrews on a

When at Chadron last week County
Attorney Guthrie found the case against
the county which he went down to de
fend was in such shupe that he could do
nothing and the county will have to pay
the judgment which was rendered before

The rase of Hester & Son against

A man working on the grade east of
town while helping to unload material
from a car Tuesday morning got his foot
caught between the bumpers so that it
was pretty liadly mushed. He was
brought to Harrison and Dr. Pliinney
dressed the injury and the man went to
Chadron in the evening.
' Some people seem to have the idea
that if a person does not give in all of
his property to the assessor that it is the
fault of the county board if he is not
called upon to list it all. That is a mis
take, as the board has nothing to do
unless some one brings tlie case be
fore them. If any one is not satisfied
with tlie assessment of another it is his
place to make a kick to the board of
equalization, and if he fails to do so he
is more to blame than any one else.
-A bad mishap befell Roy Hamlin on
Sunday. He was riding a horse into the
liverv barn when the animal slipped by
reason of tlie planks being wet, and in
falling canght the boy's left foot under
him in such a manner that in was terri
bly crushed, the bone of the great toe
being forced from the socket and driven
out through the flesh and other parts of
the foot badly crushed. Dr. Phinney
dressed the wound and all done make the
lad comfortable, but it will lay him up
for a good while.
