The boys from this city that attended the Grey Hound coursing ing- meet at Friend , Neb. , last week enjoyed a very successful trip and had a good live time. Among- them were John Oswald , Thomas Frank , Robert Rule and George Holt. Thomas Frank being-the only one that got a piece of money. His win. ning1 dog , Fighting1 Fire proved better than any one dog he has ever taken to the coursing. Out oi eighty-one dogs entered in that one. Fighting- Fire won fourth place in the S1500.00 stake , which is an excellent showing- . There were two other entries of Falls City racersMiss Chappie and Queen of the Hills. Oswald was tak ing photos on the ground lloor as usual , and secured some very good views of the winners and best dogs. Friend is a very pretty place , the surrounding- country being extremely level and an ideal place for a meet as the course of the hounds can be followed easily with the eye. The races began on Tuesday and ended Saturday with an average at- tendence varying- from five to eight thousand. The next meet will be held near Kearney and a large attendence is expected as these meets are exceedingly popular. The boys returned Saturday having realized a very pleasant time and are backed up with an invitation to "come again when cherries are ripe. ' ' Ferd Friedly's Sale. Ferd Friedly's sule of Poland Chinas will be held in this city , Saturday , October 27th at the Mettz Sale Pavilion. Mr. Friedly is one of the best judges of swine in this part of the state as his experience with thorough-breds for the past lif- teen years has placed him in touch with all the leading- breeders of this class. This is his thirteenth annual sale and is by far the best offer ing ever presented the public. His herd has always been headed by the best that money could purchase. Such grandsires - sires as Friedly's Mischief of Mischief Maker cannot fail to appeal to the best breeders of the land , he being- perfect type of the Poland.China hogHis half brother Meddler is the World's Champion. This is but an index of the good thingin store for you at this sale. It you are a breeder do not fail to attend , a look means a purchase.

Unknown parties helped themselves to a span of mules that were hitched to the rack around the court house and drove off with them. This oc- cured about 5:30 : Wednesday evening the owner Fred Reschke discovering the theft. A search was started at once. Prof. Richardson was making a drive to Barada the same eve ning and on the road there he passed a team of mules driven by two men , but not knowing of the theft , thought nothing of it. However when he returned he found the team standing in the road , about a mile and a half this side of Barada. He took them to a near-by farm house and lelt them there.

Dr. E. C. Wittwer , president of our county medical association , came down from Ilumboldt Mon- lay to attend a meeting of that ijody in this city Tuesday. He was a pleasant caller at this oflice , being an old friend of the manager. It was amusing to watch the lawyers and jurors when Judge Kelligar adjourned court. For several weeks the term has been in session and the Iu\v3ers have been wind jamming and worrying about their cases , while the jurors have sat silent in the hard chairs being compelled to listen to the dryest of matters. When the Judge said "court will now adjourn , the jury is now excused for the term"everybody scattered like a lot of school boys out for a vacation. Court time is a stren uous time for some people , and every body is usually very glad when it is over. Bill McCray was in town on Wednesday to see what could be done towards getting the county in a few more law suits. William was trying to buy lumber with which to build bridges. The wholesale men when they learned that the county had contracted all bridges for the year refused , to sell to the county for the reason that the county had no right to buy and they would therefore be unable to collect their money. The lumbermen wanted McCray to buy the lumber personally and let him file his bill with the county. To this William refused. He is willing enough to play even at the ex pense of the county , but he isn't looking for a law suit of his own. Charlie Xoellers is working man fully to keep the county out of trouble , but McCray and Stalder , . the other two members of the committee , are seemingly trying- their best to get the county into a law suit.
