We need money , and we need it at
once there is no use disguising the
fact any longer in fact we must have"
it. To economize the editor is attempt
ing to do all the work of the office hini-
self , consequently he can't get out and.
collect. lie can't afford to offer any
prizes for the purpose of stirring people ;
up , but he's hit upon another scheme ,
one by which YOU can make- some
thing. Here it is. : .
To every subscriber who pays all ar
rearages in full to September 1st , and
One Dollar in advance , we will give o
receipt for Paid Up Subscription to
January 1 , 1901. Brands accordingly ;
In other words , you will get the pa
per four or five months absolutely free
of charge. The NEWS-DEMOCRAT is
ordinarily opposed to schemes of this - !
kind , as there is no money in it in the
long run , but this is an extraordinary
occasion , and we must have money.
' This offer is for cash only and will be
withdrawn September 1st.
The hottest roast we ever have read ,
is the letter of Senator Allen to J. Ster
ling Morton. Uu to date Jay Sterilized
has not replied. ,
The congressional situation is becoming - ;
ing more interesting every day , and tha
hopes of a democrat securing the fusion
nomination grows brighter as time
We are reliably informed that Dave
Banna is after the republican nomination -
tion for county treasurer. It looks , tool
as though he might Ripe to the occasion
and capture the Dead Sea apple. "V " ;
It begins to look like L. K Alder and
W. W. Wood have formed an offensive
alliance for the two places upon the re
publican judicial ticket. Alder Wood
be better off if it he went it alone.
Several republican politicians became
real angry after reading last week's pa
per , and accused us of having already
opened the county campaign. Had we
held the Tliadcre'y letter until shortly-
before election they would have accus
ed us of insincerity because we said
nothing before the campaign. As it is ,
Treasurer Thackrey has a chance to
vindicate himself. Our action was not
prompted by malice it was merely a
protest by u citizen and taxpayer.
Humor now has it that Layporte and'
Sherman have formed a combination
and Laypore is to get the nomination
for sheriff and Sherman will retain his
position as deputy. This is gall and
wormwood to the friends of Sheriff
Strong , who have been backing Sher
man to win. A man don't mind bet
ting on the wrong horse if he gets any
thing like a race for his money , but he
does hate to see his horse get left at the
scratch. Watch the indicator.
' 111 news travels fast. " The Stuar
Ledger is real mad at this paper be
cause it had the temerity to cdticjzes
one of the Ledges's brilliant editorial s- ,
when the Ledges was not on this pa
per's exchange list. Here we have
been puffing up Bro. Church a- whole
lot , and he never knew it , but when
the tune is changed , behold ! he hears
it at once. Really , though , we are sorry
ry the Ledger has not been receiving ,
our paper , because we believe it would
have done Bro. Church good during tlie
recent hot spell our articles are so
oothing to the troubled spirits of our
republican brethren but will see that
he receives his medicine regularly here
The Commissioner of Public Lands
and Buildings will offer about 105,000
acres of school land for lease at public
auction at Vaientine at the office of the
county treasurer , beginning at 9 a. m" .
Sept. 7th 1899 under the following pro
vision of the new school land law :
If after using due diligence to tease said land ,
at an annual rental of six ser cent upon the a-
praised valuation , the Commissioner is unable
to do so , he may offer the same for lease tt less
than the appraised valuation and leose it to the
person or persons who will pay six per cent on
the highest offered valuation , as annual rental ,
if hi his judgment it is to the hest interest of the
state to accept such bid.
Persons desiring'to examine lands to
be leased may. secure lists of the sajne ,
showing present appraisement thereof ,
as well as any other information , upon
application to the county treasurer or
by addressing the commissioner at Lin
coln. At the beginning of the auction
the Commissioner tvill gladly answer
all inquiries in regard to the school land
business or the workings of the new law
The list of lauds referred to will be
found on page fiva of this paper ,
The Commissioner will hold a similar
auction in hheridan county , at Rush-
vjlle , on Sept. oth.
Comstock & Richards unloaded 28
cars of cattle in Gordon last Sunday ;
consisting of cows , calves , heifers and
steers , which theo drove down to the
Spade ranch Gordon Journal.
F E. Gillette shipped eight cars of
fat cattle to Omaha , Sunday. We
learn later that .he Omaha market was
; not satisfactory and he shipped to Chi
cago. Ainsworth Home Rule.
D. T. Taylor sold 117 head of two
and three j-ear old steers thisweek to S.
B. Scace , a cattle feeder of Wayne ,
Neb. This was an extra good bunch of
cattle and netted Mr.Taylor something
over § 5,000. Hay Springs Leader.
90-head of cattle were sold at the
stock yards last Saturday. They
'brought prices ranging from $12 for
small calves , $17 for 3-months old
realves and $20 'for yearlings up to $30 ,
§ 35 and $40 for cows. These were the
cattle from the Zuck Wright ranch.
It has recently come to light that
uohu and Sam Marty for the past year
residing southeast of Atkinson have
been systematically stealing cattle from
Holt county ranchmen. Upon conclu
sive eyinence county attorney Butler
had John arrested last Wednesday and
also had a warrant issued for Sam , wto
was missing. Stuart Ledger.
This may be of use to faimers and
stockmen. Sprinkle lime in your stock
tank and not a particle of scum will
form on the water. When lime loses
its strength scum will begin to form ,
which may be twice ( Turing * tile -season.
Wash out the tank and repeat the dose.
It is cheap , not only harmless but is
wholesome , keeps the water sweeet and
saves the live stock.
Good Wyoming Cattle.
In their weekly market letter dated
last Friday the Evans , Snider , Buel Co.
says that one train of Wyoming cattle
sold on the Omaha market as follows :
12 cars of 12931b steers at $4.85 ; two
cars oflieifers at $4.35and one car ot
cyws at $4.10. They quote range beef
steers from $ -f.OO to 4.85 ; two and
three year old steers at $4.00 to $4.70
bulk ? 4.25 to $4.50. Receipts last week
were about 12,000 , mostly Nebraska
grass and western -rangers.
' Don't Cross Purebred Heifers ,
Cross mating of purebred males with
females of inferior breeding or no par
ticular bree.ling at all is not disparaged
but the similar use of purebred females
should be discountenanced and even
abhorred , for the practice tends to a re
version of the offspring ever afterward.
If a registered Shorthorn heifer be- ma
ted with a grade Angus and it this be
her first gestation her progeny ever af
terward will bear the marks and color
ing of that first cross. The reversion
to' the Angus type is sure to come , and
tlie worst of it is thnt it- will continue
to show for generations in the colors of
her offspring. Miles City .Journal
; To Prevent Texas Fever.
According to the report the state vet
erinarian of Missouri a positive method
of prevention of Texas or sp'enetic fev
er has been discovered. Prevention is
accomplished by inoculating with the
blood of a diseased animal. Ihe sys
tem has be thoroughly demonstrated to
be a success , even more so than vaccin
ation for blackleg , and will prove to beef
of inestimable value to all those who
handle southern cattle. As is known
to all our readers the fever is caused by
a tick , which seems to not seriously af
fect southern cattle , but is very fatal to
stock from the north. After inocula
tion , however , the ticks do not incon
venience the stock at all , and the per
centage of loss during inoculation is
