Oats was a good crop in Cherry
county this year. Wheat also did
well and corn makes more than an
average crop , but spuds , murphies ,
praties or potatoes , the best ye
ever seen ; bigger , smother , better
and more of 'em than ever before.
Mr. and Mrs. W. II. Carter , of
Cody , returned Sunday morning

Mrs. Easmus Andersen came
down from Eosebud last week for
a few days visit with her sister ,
Mrs. Hammond , and friends in
town. Our paper was crowded
last week svhen we learned she was
in town and the forms locked up.
We tried to persuade the foreman
of our office to let us tie a few ex
tra locals to the forms but our
time and space would not aliowit.
11 Senator O'Eourke was in town
from up the road a couple of days
E. J. Burkett spoke to a smal
crowd of people here last Thurs
day evening in the court hou e ,
considering the reputation of the
man. Exchanges up the road and
elsewhere also report small audi
ences. There were more women
than men to hear the speaker. An
effort upon the part of some of the
school girls to spring a class yell
on Burkett at the beginning was
well meant but it sounded coarse.
This i.s the laud of spuds.
They'll grow the dryest season ,
and have always made a good crop
in Cherry county. The price of
'em in the fall is oO to 50c and by
spring they're worth a dollar a
bushel. Every farmer ought to
have a potato patch of five to ten
acres or more if he can aii'ord the
expense of planting them. We
know of people who have potatoes
to sell every year and make more
money off of 'em than they do on
cattle or corn , though they raise
some of each and they all pay.
II. S. Savage purchased the liv
ery barn of Chas. Sherman last
week , and as announced , formed a
partnership with Hammond &
Bullis to be known as The Star
Livery company. The Sherman
barn will be used for the livery
jusiness and the Hammond & Bui-
is barn for feed and sale stable.
Mr. Hammond will have charge of
; hg feed barn and Messers. Savage
ind Bullis will take charge of the
ivery business. Commercial tra e
will be better taken care of under
the new arrangement and the feed
business will be more satisfactory
to patrons of that line. These
gentlemen are experienced horse
men and we do not know of any
one more capable than they arc to
take good care of a team. They
are courteous and obliging men ,
worthy of a share of the livery and
feed business Thcv invite all old
customers and many new ones to
call on them.
0. W. Ilahn came in to get his
daughter to take her home from
school last Friday and we mot him
on the street during the afternoon
before school was out and had a
little talk with him , during which
time the thought occurred to us
that we've thought of several times
before and we're going to tell you
all about it. Mr. Halm owns o20
acres of laud upon the table north
of town several miles , and he has
been farming it ever since we have
lived in the county. It's a good
average farm. There's many simi
lar around here and many men
that we might have mentioned in
stead of Mr. Halm , but we know
these conditions are much the same
and that Mr. Ilahn makes a good
living , drives to town whenever he
feels like it , has a little money to
spend any old time and spends
more and has more left than any
1GO acre farmer living in the east
ern part of the state or Kansas
whose farm is worth and sells for
8i,000 or $5',000. Where could
Mr. Halm go to better his con
dition or make more than he does
with the same investment and
amount of labor expended ? There
is no place within our knowledge
where good land can be bought as
cheap as in Cherry county. It
won't always be as cheap as it is
now. Those who want to sell
should find buyers with little trou
ble at the prices now askecl for
land. Our advice to people buy
ing land is to pick out something
that suits you and pay the price
asked. We have not heard of any
one asking too much or more than
their lapis worth.
