the past that
SIOUX CITY I A. .
Stands at top as a market for Range Feeders
You can satisfy yourself as to the. truth of that dlarement by
comparing the saies at Sioux City , last year , with those at any other
competitive market. You can also ask your neighbors who have sold
cattle at Sioux City. This year Sioux City is in the field for fat cat
tle as well as feeders. The great beef slaughtering plant of the

called upon Judge Towne and ex
pressed their desire to thereafter
travel the road of life in double har

until he had the young couple hitched

Jim Gillaspie recentty caught a
negro charged with cattle stealing ,
and Jack Heelan brought in a young
fellow supposed to Have stolen a

the two should run for sheriff on the
