It should be born in mind by the
stock growers of Sioux county and all
the adjoiruing counties that there is an
organization known as the North-West
ern Nebraska Association of Stock men,
with its head quarters for the present
at Alliance, Nfeh. Those wishing to en
quire into the object for which this asso
ciation was organized with a view to be
coming members of it, can by writing
the sejretary, Mr. Van Boskirk at Alli
ance, Neb., will doubtless get wiiat infor
mation they wish in regard to the organ
ization and the reasons. why slock men
of this vicinity should become members
thereof. It looks as if the stock men of
Sioux county ought to organize and see
if tlje cattle rustlers can't le routed and
when caught brought to justice and le
made to ay the penalty for such crimes.
The stock industry is especially adopted
to our county and the eople in this
county ought to see to it that their own
interests are looked after.

at one time as if all hands would be
blown across on the other side of Jordan
but, Mr. Ruhwer, who is quite cool un
der exciting circumstances look his hand
kerchief from his pocket and picked up
the burning lamp, carried it to the bar
room, set it right side up in the wash
sink, turned the wick down wheu it soon
went out, fortunately no damage was
done. It was one of the indiest days of

been seen in So many places at the same
