Ice Plant Moved.
The ice plant is being dis
mantled this week , as the own
ers , The Larlciu Manufacturing
Co. , of Omaha , are preparing to
take the same to Omaha. It-
was thought at one time that
this institution would be one of
value to this city but the exper
iment was not very successful
as the plant only ran one sea
son. The ice it turned out was
of excellent quality but the ex
pense entailed by its production
more than ate up the revenue it
brought in. For several seasons
the plant has been idle and this
spring it was thought that another -
other trial would be made but
this plan never consummated in
realization. We are sorry that
it was not a success.
Method In Their Madness.
The Tribune has been criticis
ing the judgment of McCray and
Stalder for their foolish position
concerning bridges.
If rumors about the court house
are correct , this criticism is
hardly justified.
Of course the attempt to ignore
the Gilligan contract will be pro
ductive of one or more law suits-
but these law suits will be against
the county and not against indi
While these cases are being
fought the county will be build
ing bridges under the supervision
of some member of the bridge
committee. McCray and Stalder
are members of the bridge com
mittee and will doubtless oversee
the construction of these bridges.
For this service the county must
j pay $3.00 per day.
While the county is fighting
and paying for law suits , certain
members of the board will be
' drawing. $3.00 per day because of
the contest.
Of course the rumors about the
court house may be incorrect , but
we can't see where the county
comes in can you ?
Friedly's Hog Sale.
Saturday last was the thir
teenth annual Poland China hog
sale held by Ferd Friedly of
Verdon , who is among the pioneer
neer breeders of this section.
"Like all its predecessors , it was
a success throughout and the
youngsters brought the high
dollar as a rule.
J. W. Stowder of Auburn ,
topped the sale for one of his
choice at $58 and he certainly
was a beauty. R. Cope of this
city thought enough of this herd
to back his judgment for two
good ones which he could not
reach until they caught the $80
mark. Harden Bowers of Ver
don , lives close enough to the
herd to realize their true worth
and made good on a couple of
fine ones. Will McDougall of
Salem knows a choice bunch
of hogs when he sees them and
is always willing to pay the top
when they reach the standard
of excellency he fixes. This
bunch must have reached that
limit as he became the owner ol
eight head before the sale closed.
Chris Horn of Barada wanted
to better his prospects for an
up-to-date herd and took home
a fine youngster.
This is but a few of those in
attendance and buyers from
abroad were numerous , many
choice pigs going to neighbor
ing states and counties north o
here. Cols. Marion and Leon
ard who had charge ot this sale
certainly did themselves proud
and all are well pleased witl
the results.

future home in California.
Family Gathering.
John Martnet and Fred Lehn-
herr , two prosperous farmers of
the west end returned Saturday
from attending a family reunion
at Pine Island , Minnesota. The
event was in honor of an aged
brother-in-law , Fred Lchnherr
and family. Mr. Lehnherr has
passed the eighty line and is
still hale and hearty , and in fact
he appeared to be the youngest
member in the gathering.
John Martnet , of this county ,
married his sister many years
ago , and became interested in
improving a large tract of Rich
ardson county land in Spciser
precinct , this being the first time
in forty-one 30ars that he has
seen time to visit the family.
One can scarcely imagine the
changes that have taken place in
these families during this long
period and are filled with wonder
at just what the feeling in the
breast might be at a reunion of
this nature.
G. F. Lehnherr , the son , locat
ed in this county some twenty
years ago and has made frequent
yisits to the old home. Six
years ago accompanied by his
aunt , Mrs. John Marmet , he
spent a couple of weeks with his
parents. On this occasion how
ever he met a brother whom he
had not seen for fourteen years.
Surely nothing can bring more
happiness to the aged parents
than the home-coming of the
children whom they have watched
with care through all these long
'ears , and we often think that a
hadow of sorrow also mingles
vith the thought that it is proba-
ly the last time the } ' may gather
s an unbroken circle.
