Business has been good on the Wyom
ing division during the past week , with
a bright prospect for the future. It is
with a broad smile that the boys'reach
for their checks pay day C. Wagner ,
formerly section foreman at Culbertson ,
Nebraska , has been transferred as sec
tion foreman at Ardmore J. S. Cham
bers has been transferred as helper at
Alliance to a similar position at Broken
Bow. Alliance Grip.
Conductor Frank Kendlen has been
around , this week , regaling his ac
quaintances with a whopping big fish
story. Frank was a member of a fishing
party that went out to Stephen Bolles' on
the Willow. The facts are that the women
caught quice a nice mess of fish , which
Stephen's hogs ate while the -party
were eating their lunch , and they came
home empty handed. But this doesn't
effect Kendlen's fish story in the least.
He's all right.
More Than Last Year.
The indications are that the small
grain crop , this season , is larger than
that of last year. In 1895 the total
small grain shipment from this point
was ten cars. This year H. H. Easter-
terday alone has shipped 16 cars and be
sides a few persons shipped their own
small grain to market. We understand ,
further , that Mr. Easterday expects to
ship as much more before the season
ends. As to corn , there is some doubt
'about the average yield being as great
as last year.
To Subscribers ot The Tribune.
Readers of The Tribune will please
remember that cash is an essential in
the publication of a paper. The pub
lisher has been very lenient during the
past few years , on account of crop fail
ures and hard times , and as a consequence
quence many hundreds of dollars are
due on subscriptions. We are now com
pelled to request all who can to call and
make settlement in full or in part. In
view of the facts , our subscribers must
feel the justice and urgency of this re
quest. The Publisher.
A Fair Yield.
T. J. Pate conpleted his threshing ,
last week. He informs The Tribune
that his small grain exceeded his expec
tations. His rye averaged 20 bushels per
acre , and hij wheat 10. A fair yield
The "Bonnie Princess" promises to be
one of the most pleasing operas ever
