bupenntendent Harris of the Fre
mont Elkhorn Missouri galley rail
road passed through town yesterday
in their private car In conversation
Manager Bid well informed us that
the F E is doing a very nice business
and that the prospects for fall ship
ments of cattle tfrgbfa Stock will
be ready to maruet from two weeks to
a month earlier than usual Ee says
that there is slight prospect of Neb
raska securing any new sugar factor
ies soon but seems to think that Ha
waiian sugar will not cut much figure
in competition with the Nebraska or
California article lie speaks highly
of our town and its progressive citi
zens and thinks that if the people
south and west of us would give up
all ideas of trying to farm they would
be much better off Speaking of rail
road extensions in this state he was of
the opinion that a road through Bojd
county would be a good thing but the
Short Line would not Mr Bid well is
a very eutertaining gentleman and we
would be pleased to have him move
his offices to Valentine but presume
the Omaha people would kick on that
A Word to the Wise
The attention of the authorities is
directed to the horrible condition of
the sidewalks on Cherry street both
north and south The walks m many
places are an everlasting disgrace to
the town and the profanity that is
caused to issue from the lips of our
citizens and the slighting remarks
made about them by strangers is
enough to set a person who has the in
terests ol the town at heart wild If
the property owners will not repair
these walks upon solicitation they
should be repaired by the town and
assessed to the property This advice
is offered not to antagonize the owners
but for the protection of the limbs of
pedestrians and to guard the village
against all possibility of one or more
damage suits
