John Herman, was in from the val

two or three weeks, we also learned that
Vels. Audwrsen had tost 9 head of calves

On last Saturday, J. C. L. Ragland
and Charles Umphenour closed a deal
whereby Charley became the owner of
Mr. Raglands Sioux county ranch, about
four miles north-west of Harrison. We
were unable to ascertain just what the
consideration was, further than Charley
obtained an extraordinary bargain, this
we were pleased to bear, as there is no
person in the county we would rather
see get the benefit of a good bargain than
him, Charley has bten a rendtiit of this
county for several years and otdy left
here last thanksgiving to visit his rents
and returned a couple of weeks ago to
look after a small bnnch of horses which
Mr. Ragtand was wintering for him,
which resulted in the purchase of the
ranch. Charley is a citizen of which any
community can and ought to feel proud
of, and there is lots of room for more
just like bim.
Harrison has been a dry town since
last Saturday, and to help bring matters
to a focus, a fire roust occur in the in
ter im. t omething should be done to av

a little of the beautiful lay on the ground
otherwise some of our citizens as well as
stock would have suffered the penalty of
' Dangers of the Grip.
The greatest danger from Lagrippe is
of its resulting in pneumonia. If reason
able care is used however, and Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy taken, all dan
ger will be avoided. Among the tens of
thousands who have used this remedy
for lagrippe ws have yet to learn of a
ingle case haviag resulted In pneumonia
which show conclusively that this rem
edy is a certain preventive of that dan
gerous disease. It will cure la grippe in

A Midnight Blaze.
On bit Tuesday about 3 o'clock in
the morning, the building just nonh of
J. W. Smith's '-Candy Seap" was leveled
to the ground, wi'Ji all its contents, by
lire. The building was occupied by Su
perintendent, Miss Elsie Merriam, who
hail just recently moved in, but as she
was away from home that niclit, on an
errand of mercy, asMlin in lira cure of i
Crauduia Wrinhl, who U u b-eii sick so
long and who was. taken very much
worse on last Monday, hence Miss Mer
riam did not learn of her los until next
morning. The Urst .arties to discover
the (ire we understand were, Mr. and Mrs
Anton Moravek, John Marsteller, Perry
White, J. W. Smith, and 11. A. Priddy,
but as the fire had made such progress
before it was discovered, and as there
was no water in the town cistern, and
very little in olliers anywhere near tlie
scene of the fire. little could be dona ex
cept to prevent other buildings in the
immediate vicinity from taking fire from
flying sparks. So quick and quietly did
the surging flames coni lete its work,
that some families living very close to
the building did not know of ilsdestrution
until the next morning, notwithstanding
the fact that those who first discovered
the fire yelled at top of their voices, hut
the night being bitter cold, and the hour
so late that everyone was w rapped in the
gentle embraces of morpheus, hence they
were unconscious of the conflagration in
their midst. Miss Merriam informed a
reporter of tlie Jofrkal that her individ
ual loss would reach at least (300, she
saved only the clothes which she wore,
and many things lost in the fire she will
never be able to replace, but fortunately
the says $10, would pay all she owed on
what she lost, everything else being paid
for. Site feels very thankful that she
escaped with her life. Although Miss
Merriam has lost all she possessed of this
world'sgoods, yet she makes less fuss
over it than many would though they
may be worth thousands, she has the
sympathy of the entire community in
A Card of Thanks.
We wish to thank our many friends
for their kindness to us, in giving us so
freely of their sympathy and assistance,
in the shape of kind words, silver coins,
and clothing to help us better near the
loss we sustained through the recent lire
of Feb. 7th, IWfl.
