UNITED STATES CENSUS.
U. S. Census Supervisor Jos. Pigman
Jos Pigman , Supervisor of the
United States census of the sixth
district , has had quite a hard
time to get his enumerators for
the census this year. He has
been rather fortunate in getting
them for this county and also
fortunate in securing a good set.
The trouble has mostly been
in'and around Kearney where the
census is to be taken in fifteen
days and the rest have up to
The enumerators are paid at
the rate of from two and one
half cents per head in the cities
to four and one-half cents in the
country districts. It is not un
derstood why the difference is
The following are the counties
and the census districts in the

Boy Thrown and Badly Hurt.
Willard Preston , a lad twelve
years of age and a son of Mrs.
Mary Preston of this place , was
bkdly hurt last night by being
thrown from a horse and dragged
for a considerable distance. The
boy was returning from a friend's"
iiouse in the suburbs and had
nearly reached home , when the
animal , a fractious one , took
fright in some manner and com *
menccd making trouble. The
young rider was soon unseated ,
the halter rope becoming wrapp
ed about his leg in some way as
he fell. Before assistance ar
rived the boy had been hauled
over the ground for a distance
of several feet. The rope finally
untangled itself from his leg and
he was carried into the house.
Upon examination it was found
bis breast and limbs were severe
ly cut and lacerated , although no
fractures or internal injuries

Broken Bow , Ravenna and Merna Have
a Little Fun With
Last week Broken Bow was
baying Spokane , Washington , at
the rate of $2 per lot , of the
South Waukesha Townsite Co.
of that place. Some of the pur
chasers were a little suspicious
and phoned Sheriff Kennedy who
tried to locate the agent or
agents as it might be.
They worked this place on
Wednesday going to Ravenna
Thursday morning where they
sold quite a few of their lots.
They worked Ravenna together
then one went to Alliance return
ing to Brukcn ' Bow Saturday
evening where he was met by his
pal , who had been arrested in
Ravenna and turned over to
Sheriff Kennedy of this place ,
who was also there to meet him
as , he got off of the night train.
They gave their names as
Hansen and Lester.
Sheriff Kennedy to make sure
telegraphed to the chief of Police
and Sheriff of Spokane Saturday
night and the answer from the
chief was received stating there
was a qompany of that name but
they have no authorised agents.
They were made to square
up with the people at Ravenna
and Broken Bow but the ones
at Merna are likely to be short
as the agents were both "dead
broke" * after squaring up here.
The people of Broken Bow
contributed about $200.00 , or
more..and it is .not known , just
