The democratic county convention of
Sioux bounty, Neb., was belt! ut the
court house last Saturday. Uule a
numlwr of delegates were prest nt. J.R
Hunter, of Andrews, and Carl Lux of
this city were elected as delegates to the
state convention and were instructed to
vote for W.J. Bryan as delegate ut large
to the National Convention. The con
vention was very harmonious through
out all of it deliberations.
A goodly mi-iber of our people gath
ered at the cemetery Monday afternoon,
and decorated the graves. There was a
lack id inteit-st lor some rei.son, nnd
therefore we did not have a program,
and as large a crowd as we ha.I last year
There was a gr-at ileal of fault found in
the one that got up the wograin hy
critics last year but the critics failed to
dounvthing this year, therefore there
was not much interest taken 111 the day
of the dead.
We learn that. Miss May Lewis has
Iswi engaged as one of I he teachers III
Crawford scliool. Mis Lewis was one
the graduates t.f that school this rear
sisl it surely speaks well for her to be re
tained ns a teacher in the school idle
graduated from. We can sat'. lv :ay the
school hoard of Crawford made a wi.-e
choic in selecting her for she proved
herself a c ipil. le teacher h'fore she left
this county some t wo years ago.
Seve-al of or xoinv people are going
to attend ihe Junior Normal w hich lo
gins at Alliance on June F!:h. This
shows that Ihe interest is growing, ami
if the leading educators of the North
west will only work together our young
people will liecoiiiH more interested from
year to year. We are sorry that Sheri
dan coiin'y has drawn her influence from
these Junior Normals for 11. not only
weakens her own educational interests
but helps to break down the only thing
that has Iwen given to the Northwest.
The spirit of Malf! -ilmess is the worst thing
that confronts mankind. Alliance is the
most available point and more cenlral'y
located than any town in tl) Northwest,
and why t.ot all stand united on this as
nil can't, have it and the rising generation
will thank us for tlu unity.
IShKEZES F110M CESTHAL CITY
I have not forgotten our old honman.1
friends if I have been silent for some
ti..ie. Both Harrison papers make then
weekly visits and none are read with
more interest. We read of the storms,
cioud bu is! hail but .is yet w mv
had no more rain than M needed. Crops
are doing line and farmers began plowing
com Inst week. We had some late frosts
that probably damaged fruit some. It
would have cooked our l;ans but they
were too tempting to loose so we saved
them by covering them. The first crop
of alfalfa is about ready to harvest. We
are counting on strawberries next Sun
day. Most makes my back ache to
watch the blossoms coming out, they are
so thick. A goodly number of people
here are talking of going west to take
homesteads. Six-hundred and forty acres
of land looks like u big thing to a man
that has rented here for years, or only
has an eighty. Hope there will be
enough to go around. Tho yalleyit.es
have considered James Wilson a stand by
for so long, they will miss him very
much. Howard and Mont Burke have
a long trip this time and we are much
interested in their letter, Hope Howard
will write ofteu. Perhaps we may meet
them some time, unless they get home
sick, for old Sioux and return before we
(?et started. F. W, went lo North Loup
to attend Quarterly meeting and was so
pleased to meet, an old friend tlmre.
Oiaiidm.'i Davis is there visiting rel.-.tives
anil she has promised us u visit before she
returns home, Wo have, bean anxious to
know whether Mrs. Kite is going lo
accept the position offered her or not.
We liojed slie wmild. and cerae around
this way lietore we leave. We received
acortHal invitation from Mr. Hester Vj
look over th.-.t country lefore we locate
aiaui. We find we have several old
frieials at Paonia. and bear it is in the
best, fruit county in the state. We were
much inte ested in the report of Cwm-meis-ement
exercises at Harrison, and
hope the gooc! work will go on. Central
City High School turned out seven
graduates Friday night and live wiil
graduateat the College m xtweek unless
ttie measles get wor-e they have Iwen a
regular epidemic, "three day-" or
"German measles, but Phebe nnnaged
to have the genuine article tins time and
was in lied rune days. I beard Rev.
('arrahao preach the memorial sermon
to-day. The address is to lie given by
Mrs. Condon of Pawnee fjity to-morrow
with other appropriate exercises.
For fear of the basket I will
leave the rest till next time.

This item is for the II I teen-yea r old
hoy who thinks that it is a smart thine
to act up so mean ut school that, he
wears out the life of his teacher anil de
s troys the j;nod work which the schoo
was intended to accomplish. This sort of
bov is found in country as well as in
city schools. Liiey are too i)i; 101 i lit
tle woman to thrash and seem to have
no moral sense which may be appealed
to Now , boys, you nrt; the architects of
your own fortunes. You can improve
Ihu educational advantages triven you
anil become useful and worthy citi
zens or you can raise Cain, as you do in
scliool, graduate from there into a brake
beam tramp and die 11 dirty bum. You
can make jour choice. The sure way to
net into plenty of trouble w lr:n Brown
lo niunhood is to make lotsol" trouble
in the public schools. Y'ou oiii,'lit to
have the meanness well licked out of
von, but the teacher can't do it, your
father won't and the school board had
rather fire you than tick you. Fun and
plenty of it is a bin bright of the
American boy, but your type of man
ners is not fun; it is the outcropping of
the heathen in you. and you belong
with the Moroa or Tapils of the Philip
