The old city council met for the last
time Tuesday morning. All unfinished
i business was completed and the new
councilmen and mayor took their of
| fices that evening. W. T. Gibson, the
i new mayor, took hold of things like
i a veteran and soon had the machinery
of our city government running like
! clockwork. Mr. Gibson gives promise of
being a popular and efficient mayor
and his administration should he a
prosperous one, as the old eounicl left
the finances in fine condition. The new
councilmen are James Bartunek and
Oscar Bechthold. They are taking hold
1 of the new work with a vim and can
be depended upon at all times to take
care of the city business. The retiring
mayor and councilmen. R. H. Mathew.
Wm. Graefe and G. W. Collipriest,
were energetic in the city's welfare
and have made many improvements
and abated several abuses in the city
government during the past year and
have a clean record. The hold over
i members of the council are. C. C.
Cooper and John Ohlsen.
S. F. Reynolds was re-appointed
city marshal for the coming year. Mr
Reynolds i9 the right man for the
place and has given universal satis
| faction during the past year. It was
the wish of the majority of the people
that Mr. Reynolds be retained for the
coming year. He has proven to be an
able and popular officer.
S. E. Thrasher was appointed as
street commissioner and given the
street sprinkling job for the summer
Mr. Thrasher will also look after the
water meters in the city. He will be
able to handle the work to the satis
faction of all. G. H. Hosier, who held
the position the past year, was also
an applicant. Mr. Hosier’s work wa
1 satisfactory and no complaint was ever
heard in regard to his work, hut the
ccncil saw fit to make the change.
Pete Rowe, the old democratic war
horse, took down the minutes of the
meeting. He is now serving his seventh
or eighth term as city clerk. His re
■ cords are in good shape and he has
tilled the office satisfactorily to all.
Judge Aaron Wall was appointed city
attorney for the coming year. The

To the Young Men of the Community:
By virtue of being Postmaster. I
have been appointed a recruiting of
ficer. and as such will make it my duty
to get every young available man to
enlist in some branch of the military
service. It is generally known that a
postmaster receives a compensation
for every man that he gets to enlist,
but let me say that in getting enlist
ments it is not for the money, but for
the sake of doing my duty to the de
partment and to my country, and that
1 never have nor never will put in a bill
for such services or accept any pay.
This is a time when we ought to give
our services to our country without
the dollar mark in return.
While the enlistments from this
community have beuen good, yet then
are many more that ought to feel it
their duty to stand by their colors and
offer their services to their country.
Any assistance 1 can render to get
enlistments will he gladly done.
A meeting was held at J W. Thomp
son’s place Tuesday evening, at which
time a gentlemen's social club was
organized with about twenty-five (bar
ter members.
The meeting was called to order and
officers ele red as follows: 1. L. Con
ger. president; Robert P. Starr, vice
president; J. W Thompson, secretary
and treasurer.
The club was organized for a plat e
of rest, pastime and amusement. All
business of the organization will be
transacted at the club rooms on the
first day of each month.
Cattle. Sheep and Hog Losses in 1915
Total $3,527,720. Loss in 1916
Totaled $4.729.~1f
(By F. L. Taylor and F. M. Seidell.)
Alliance. Neb. May 2.—The meat
supply of the nation is an important
factor in war time. No other form of
food gives so much value for the
amount ot bulk. This is a very im
portant factor in supplying the armies
of the United States and the allies.
The meat supply of the United States
has not kept pace with the increase
of population and this, even in times
of peace, is a serious situation West
ern Nebraska is one of the important
live stock producing areas of the Unit
ed States and can do much when called
upon, as this section is now. to re
lieve the meat situation
In the 52 Western Nebraska coun
ties lying west of Merrick county, ac
cording to the State Board of Agri
culture reports on April 1. 1916 there
were 193.604 milk cows having a total
value of $11,616,240; 1.S20.SS4 head
of other cattle, valued at $73,135,360;
91.697 sheep valued at $641.S79; 807.
038 hogs valued at $16,140,760. The
loss by death of live stock for the
year preceding based upon assessors
reports, were as follows; milk cows.
6.19S head, value $372,080; other cat
tle. 39.968 head, valued at $1,598,720;
sheep, 3.4S0 head valued at $24,360;
hogs to the number or 76.62S valued
at 1,532,560; making a total of $3,527
The report of the Bureau of Crop
Estimates shows that on April 1. 1917.
there was in this territory an in
crease in cattle of 4.5 per cent, hogs
1 per cent and sheep 2 per cent over
April 1. 1916. The losses of cattle in
the same area were 1.6S times what
it w as a year ago. Sheep losses "were
162 times what it was a year ago
The loss of hogs was .9 of what it was
one year ago. The losses on the esti
mate for 1916 would total $4,729,710.
The losses in live stock are attri
buted to many different causes. In
cattle the losses were chiefly due to
lack of feed, exposure, black leg. corn
stalk disease and tuberculosis. In sheep
losses were attributed chiefly to lack
of feed, exposure, losses during lamb
ing. etc. Til hogs the losses were for
the most part caused by cholera, far
rowing and many other swine ail
Labor will be scarce this year so
provision must be made to begin early
and secure enough feed for keeping
the live stock well during the com
ing year. More care should be exer
cised during calving, lambing and far
rowing seasons. Black leg losses
should be prevented by vaccinating
all young cattle twice each year, in
case of abortion among breeding
herd of cattle a good veterinarian
should be consulted. In hog cholera
sections, care should be taken to pre
vent widespread outbreaks by sani
tary methods if vaccination.
Stockmen are urged not to market
their stack in an unfinished, immature
condition, unless it is to prevent en
tire loss because of extreme inability
to get feed. This practice has caused
a recent break in the price of young
cattle at the different stock markets.
These facts and figures are submit
ted for the consideration of tte loyal
live stock men of Western Nebraska.

but such was not the case, the saloons

I sold out their stock before the final
closing time, while others dished out

saloons were put out of business in
Sherman county by the new law.
Late last week both houses of con

get soldiers by the draft. This measure
was necessary as the volunteer sys

wants to have over 500.000 enlisted
men soon. Each state will be required
to furnish a certain number of men
and the drafting will be held In each
