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

Prof. Richardson was making

team was restored to their own

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.
