School was out last Friday, and the
scholars and teachers talked of having a
picnic for the last two weeks, hut the
teachers of the primary and intermediate
rooms decidod not to have any, and so
they taught school on that day; but the
scholars and teacher of the grammar
department decided to picnic, and the
young ladies fllld their baskets with
lunches, and Friday morning the young
men got teams and went around and
gathered up the ladies and baskets and
took tin m to Monroe canyon.
After they arrived at their stopping
place they all ban to scatter and haunt
ed the canyon high and low, but they all
managed to get together about 12:00
o'clock to see what the young ladies
had filled their baskets with. None of
of all kinds, of the best. After dinner a
crowd started for the "devilsden", which
iB situated alKiut two miles west of the
canyon, and some of them got there and
some diden't. They all roamed until they
became so tired they had to return to
town before they seen all of the canyon,
but probably they . will have another
picnic and view the remainder.

To the Teachers and Prospective
Teachers of Sioux County.
I urge upon every teacher and pro
spective teacher of Sioux county to at
tend the Alliance Junior Normal if yoo
possibly can. Such an opportunity to
secure a Normal training so near home
has never lM-en oll'ered to you before.
Every teacher needs a Normal training if
they wish lo make a successful teacher,
anil you should take advantage of this
opportunity. Perhaps some will have
to make a sacrifice if they attend, but
everyone should lie willing to do this
when a Normal training is offered so
near home. 1 therefore urge every
teacher and prospective teacher to take
advuul.igu of this gragd opportunity and
not let it slip by.
Every teacher of this county who at
tends the entire term and who do oml
work will lie excused from examination
for a county'certillcate in every branch
with a grade of wr cent or above, and
in addition thereto a credit of 5 r cent
will lie given on gennral average to

WASHINGTON, May 13-Speciil.)
Final and official notice has tieen served
upon the cattle oners uf the west and
southwest that there must be no further
delay in compliance with tlie orders of
the secretary of the interior for the re
moval of unlawful fences from the pub
lic ranges. Recently the cattlemen have
been organizing in Kansas, Nebraska,
New Mexico and other states in which
there are large areas of public lands and
making an effort to secure a postpone
ment of the operation of the department's
fence-removing order. Petitions have
been coming to the interior department
asking that the time for the removal of
the fences he extended to July 1. It is'
claimed that the herds will he removed
at that time and that it will be a source
of great loss and expense to the cattle
owner to comply with the order before
that dale. This same request was made
a year ago and granted by the president
and Mr, Hitchcock, secretary of the m
torior. The cattlemen promised to re
move their fences immediately after July
1. Instead of doing so they waited until
congress met and then spent the winter
i-i an effort to secure the passage of a
grazing and leasing bill that did not meet
the approval of the otlicials of the inter
ior department. Ollicials of the depart
ment hehexe that the same dilatory
tactics are to be employed again by the
Mr. Hitchcock has notified the different
agents of the department that prompt
reports are expected furnishing details of
all violations of the law in connection
with the maintenance of these unlawful
fences. No attention will be paid to pro
tests or petitions iigainstthe enforcement
ol the order, If the I cures are not
promptly removed the courts will be ill-
yoked to authorize the removal of them
by the federal authorities at the expense
of the cattlemen.
