Uncle John Stoddard is responsible
for the following: What is the dif
ference between a tax payer of to

board of supervisors. Atis: One is
pensive and the other is expensive.
Uncle John got away alive.
An ice cream fostivaltw;S ' held at
the Stone school house Satui day even
ing which was largely attended and
greatly enjoyed, the proceeds going
(or should go) to provide an iron
fence, 10 feet high around the build

monument to the stupidity of those
who are always willing and anxious to
te bonds.
Uncle Joe Holcomb was sinking
hands with friends on Walnut last
Sunday. In a conversation in regard
to the actions . of the couuty board!
force of habit was so strong that he
unconsciously remarked: "Sired by
extravagance, dammed by everybody."
As you arc doubtless aware Joseph is
horse editor of the Democrat.
Our new road machine is here, "but
be not afraid," Sam says that if the
people will keep their shirt on until
the board of supervisors meet he v ill
"compromise" the matter for us,
probably by getting "2 machines.

Alf. McCall is going to feed steers

It is reported that Tim Crowley

If true Walnut Creek lose an indus

nobody's business but his own affair.
When a shore time ago the various
townships were numbered, Inavalc

that Walnut drew the unlucky num

there's luck in odd numbers this fall.

The old settlers reunion held in J.
M. Brown's grove Friday, Aug. 30,
was well attended and the grove is a
beautiful one for shade and everything
fixed up for the accomodation of the
people, and the people and the com

president of the day gave the address
of welcomn in a few well selected re
marks, the song by the choir was good.
Then dinner was called and everybody
respouded iu earnest. The baskets
seemed to be well filled with goods.
Rev. Hummel told us how fat the
prairie chickens were IS years :mo,
also, how he killed the buffalo and
went to mill, etc.

Mr. Postmaster, in the first place, we

Now. if they were getting their living
out of Uncle Sam perhaps they would

There are mon patrons of your office
who did as much for Uncle Sam as
you did and never asked for a pension.

Editor CiliEr: As I promised to
write again and give some of my old
friends a little glance of what this
country is like. To begin with, this
is a good farming country for both
corn and small grain bji winter wheat
is the best paying crop here. They
sow their wheat in September and
October and harvest about the first
of June, then they can list :u corn
or sow millet or sugar cane, raise a
crop and put the ground back in
wheat in the fall la order to show
how wheat growing pays I will take
my neighbors crop, Mr Hammond's,
which is an average crop of 2S bit.
per acre, it cost one dollar per acre to
plow the land. 30 cents per acre to
put the wheat in with drill, i) ccn.s
per acre for seed wheat, $1.50 per
acre to cut and stack with header,
the threshing is done here by steam
machines, they furnish all the hands
aid bonrd themselves and put the
wheat in the wagon for G cents per
bu. a total cost of 5.23 per acre. At
present price 55 cents per bu. 23 bu.
j will coce to $15.40, deductcost $5J3
leaves a balance of $10.17 per acre.
The corn crop here this year is tre
mendous, better than I ever raised in
Nebraska. This, is alio a good stock
country, plenty of feed for all kinds
of stock.
Now I tnaut to say a word in refer
ence to Oklahoma, at present a man
can get plenty of land there, thcrs
are vacant claims and others he can
buy out cheap and those that wish to
secure land there now is their chance,
and perhaps it is the best time to
locate there in the full and become
acclimated to the country before hot
weather. If this does not tire the
editor and his readers I may write
again. Yours Truly,
Tnos. Vauuhs.
