Lewis Gerlach' has bought his old
mining interests back, which he sold
three or four weeks ago. Mr. Ger
lach seemed to think at the time he
made a mistake in selling and so he feels

back again at a fairly reasonable price.
L. E. Dickinson, who moved into
Harrison a short time ago from Bell,
near the southern part of tiie county,
has opened up a cobbler's shop on mam
street opposite The Journal office. Mr.
Dickinson thinks he will in the near fu
ture put in a stock of harness and all
such goods as go with that kind of busi
ness. The brand committee of Sioux coun
ty were in session yesterday allowing
and rejecting brands which had been
presented for record. N. L. Tipton Wns
alowed the brand designattd by X1T, t
be used on any part of cattle or hors.
Also a brand wus granted to John War
ren, the brand being a lamp chimney and
the same to be used on lelt side of cattle
and on left jaw of horses.

ning the saloon in Harrsson for the last

tire from the business. Mr. Richstein
will close his saloon door to tlia public
this evening. He will work at the car
penter trade tins summer. The town
pump will doubtless be freely patron
ized this season, because we will not
be able to get any thing stronger than
water in Hasrison for a while at least.
The case of Staudermyer vs Russell,
tried in Judge Wilson's court yesterday,
resulted in the placing of both men un
der bonds to keep the peace until Court
convenes in Oct. 95th, this fall. The
cause leading up to the trouble was. on

they met one day last week of course
pulled their guns on one another. Per
haps the boys will be a little more care
ful next time. It is not right boys, and
then brotheren ought to dwell together
We are in receipt of eight or ten
envelopes brought to this office by 1L H.
Russell, which has on theiu some fine
artistic pen pictures ordesigoes executed
by his son Harvey who has been taking
lessons in artistic painting within the
last two or three years, which indicates
he is a clost student for a boy of only
sixteen years old. Should he be as atten
tive to his study of the art of painting
for the next few years as it would seem
he had been since he commenced to learn
painting, he will surely make his mark
in the world.
- F. Francis, whose home is in Cam
bridge, 111., but who is for the present
at least making his home in Lusk, Wyo.,
was at the Harrison House over night
last Monday. lit came out to Nebraska
and Wyoming to buy some cattle and
go into the business in this state or, just
over the line, provided he can buy them
at a reasonable price. But Mr. Francis
says he can buy them cheaper wit hia '
a hundred miles of Chicago. Mr. Fran
cis is an old resident of North Dakota
and he thinks that State, South Dakota
and Minnesota, would be the place to go
and buy stock-cattle. He has not fully
decided to locate in this Suite or Wyom
ing until later on.
The mail carrier from Bodarc, Mont
rose and Gilchrist Tuesday, brought the
news that the store in Bodard had been
destroyed by Ire Monday night of this
week. The Jons was not ascertained by
the mail carrier. But we learn that the
proprietor had concluded to close out
the business soon any way, and had dis
posed of three or four loads of his goods
to some Crawford Merchant, having de
livered them some time last week. It
was claimed the fire originatod from the
woodshed winch adjoines the store build
ing. The proprietor, Mr. Wo Klard we
understand was sleeping in the store at
the time end must have had a very nar
row escape f roin being burned up.
J. W. Scott, will leae for Ansley
Neb., next Tuesday, where he will en
gage in the mercantile business. Ans
ley was the former home of Mr. Scott
and of course it will not be like going
Into a strange country to commence
business a new. Mr. Scott has been a
resident of Sioux county for eight years,
and Is an honored citizen of Harrison ,
being a member of the school board ,
and town counsiil, and is tiie present
Assessor. II has also been engaged in
the confectionary businss in this Vil
lage but sold out to Charles Umphco-
hour of this place with tho evident in
tentention of looking up a location at
ome other point better suited to his
busiuess. The many friends and neigh
bors of Mr. Scott and family will regret,
no doubt to see thein leave. But our
loss w ill be Ansley 's gain.
Mr. and Mrs. Adsit. who formerly
lived at Albion this state, until this
spring, for a number of years, but now
of Lusk, Wyoming, were in Harrison
f Monday of this week doing business and
buying some lumber to haul out on
their new ranch located on Raw-Hide
creek, which Mr. Adsit has just bought
this spring. Mr. Adsit has been engaged
in raising fine blooded cattle in the east
ern part of the State before ha went to
Wyoming, so he is thoroughly acouant
ed with the business and expects to en
gage in the business quite extensively on
his Wyoming ranch. Mr. and Mrs. Ad
sit have traveled over a great part of
the United States and Mexico, Mr. Adsit
having been a superintendent of a tin
mine for an American firm ii S'. Lewis,
the mine being in the State of Durango,
Mexico. They are both able to speak
the Spanish language fluently. Mrs. Ad
sit is a talented lady and we were glad
to have the pleasure of nieetieg her and
getting aquauted. As Mr. Adsit was
quite busy attending to business in Har
rison during his short stay we did not
have an opportunity of becoming so well
acquainted, but sullice U to say, uuu lie is
a gentleman in every sensce of the term.
We regret very much that Mr. Adsit
and his esteemed wife could not Lave
settled in Sioux Couotv.
