Francke who knows all about fish
and game having spent a good
part of his life as a sportsman.
He has 200,000 speckled and black
and white northern trout hatching
out. Some are hatched out and
big enough to swim around. The
spawn were brought here about the
20th of January and the building
was built last fall and was ready
for use. When these fish are out
of the way about 300,000 rainbow
trout will be shipped here for
hatching. These will all be placed
in tributaries of the Niobrara be
tween here and Longpine. After
the trout are hatched and disposed
of , the black bass will be given
the attention of the hatchery and
all the lakes will be stocked in
this part b'f the country.

We have on display.in our window this week a bunch of genuine
tigers , not the ordinary kind but the latest we could obtain from
K the famous establishment of Keith Bros. & Co. , Chicago , 111.
Each one of these tigers carries a price card in plain red figures ifr
and is valued from § 1.50 to § 3.00 , in any si/e you want. They
are all the 1908 variety and present a pleasing and novel ap
pearance which belongs only to this special kind of tiger. We ft *
guarantee perfect satisfaction to every purchaser of these new 2 *
spring tigers and should there be any growl from either you or
the tiger , we will gladly refund your money.
Take a look at them.

Louie Bordeaux came down
from his ranch north of Kilgore
last Monday and the following
morning went over to Tripp and

He called at our office and we en

Wash Honey of Woodlakecame
up last Friday on business and had
time to enjoy a few games of
checkers with Col. Harrison and
ye editor who claims the cham
pionship of Cherry county. The
east bound freight came unex
pectedly and left Mr. Honey in
our city over night and gave us
the opportunity of playing several
games and it was like a visit back
home to have such a good natured
checker tournament. Mr. Honey
plays a good game and there were
some interesting games.
The recent warm and rainy
weather has melted the snow and
ice on the sidewalks which was
neglected by property owners.
This is an important matter in our
city and should receive more con
sideration than has been sljown on
numerous past occasions. We
don't mean to stir up bad feeling
nor to harshly or unjustly criticise
those who failed on this or that
occasion to clear the snow from
his sidewalk but it is necessary
for the benefit of the general pub
lic to have sidewalks cleared after
a snow. After the last snow there
were many walks that were not
cleared and when it became tramp
ed down the sidewalks were worse
than the middle of the street.
Thawing and freezing , slippery

ing , slopping along , stamping and
scraping the slush from one's feet
on the clean walks only to run on
to another bunch of snow and ice
or sloppy sidewalk which had not
been cleared at the proper time.
We hope it will not be necessary
again to refer to such conditions.
A light snow is easily swept off
and a heavy snow much easier to
clear away soon after it has fallen
than to delay , and oftentimes it
has been left to be tramped down
to the detriment of everyone who
walks and those who have carpets
to keep clean. Sweep them ofT ,
