thoro woro hundreds of good men
in that city who woro ready and
willing to preform any kind of
work that would provide a living
for themselves and families, but
thoy wore uuablo to got work.
Now, wo wish that the poople of
Slioridan who arc going or talking
of going away would study tho
matter carefully boEoro thoy sacri
fice too much to got out of North
west Nebraska. Wo aro free to ad
mit that tho outlook horo is very
discouraging, moro so than over)
boforo in this part of tho stato, and
whore persons know whoro thoy
aro going and what thoy aro going
to d6 wo could not nnd would nbt
advise them to stay horo, but this
is not by any moans tho worst

past gbod crops have boon raised
hero and those timos will certainly
roturn. Wo may reasonably expect
