and his friends regardless of party

Nels is one of the earliest settlers
of Cherry county and drove cattle
over the sand hills from North
Platte to the John Enlow ranch
nearly 30 years ago. There wasn't
many people in Cherry county
then. Four years later William
Erickson , Charley Sherman and
Nels Rowley were punching COWF
for Russel Watts of North Platte.
They came to the country with
2200 head of cattle and held them
for awhile in the valleys of the
Boardman and Gordon Creeks.
They found the grass tall and the
water good. It was an ideal place
for the cow punchers to rest awile
and graze their herd. These
boys began to dream of a
home in the hay flats of Cherry
county and finally decided to each
take a home-stead. In casting lots
it was decided that Nels Rowley
was to drop out of the company of
cow punchers and begin to build a
cabin and put up some hay for
winter. The other two went on
with the bunch of cattle to Mon
tana , expecting to return in the
fall , to their homesteads.
Nels dropped out of the camp of
good fellows , gave up the cheer
ful evening fireside of the cowboys
to build a home in Cherry county.
There wasn't much to build with.
There wasn't a house within 20
miles , excepting the Waite ranch.
But Nels got an axe. went down on
the Snake river , chopped logs and
hauled them over the wild prairies
of the coyote and the rattlesnake
and built a cabin to live in during
the long , cold winter that follow
ed. He had put up hay for some
stock that the three had bought
with their wages or taken in ex
change for work. It was the be
ginning of three humble homes of
three sturdy young pioneers. In
the fall Mr. Rowley's compan
ions returned from the far north
My dear readcrsyou can imagine
the happy meeting of these bovs
and how they gathered around the

cabin and related their experiences

gentlemen about it. They can toll

life here though they art'not : iven

of it. They stood together a ;

in their ing cabin of cedar logs
which has been made into the mosl
comfortable of homes. There's
several rooms in the house no

keeper and a good cook as every'
body knows who has had occasior
to pass that way and stop to b (

Lincoln. Neb. , Sept. 12. A re
publican candidate for the legisla
ture was in Lincoln this week ; one
who wears his republicanism
about as straight as any man in
the party : one who has been promi
nently identified with the /party
ever since he was old enough to

your count.y who are for Bryan * "
he was asked.
"Yes , " he answered , unhesita
tingly , ' 'there are a good many.
I could name you twenty right in
my locality alone. More than that.
I rknow some who are going to vote
for Shallcnberger. I shall not be
surprised the slightest to see the

I should be for both of them my
self. But I've got to keep rny re
cord straight. I'm in the repub

Consequently I'll go out and make
speeches and ask the people to

' ' 0 , we've a fine lot of harmony
in the party this fall. With Shel
don after Burkett and Victor
Rose water after / Brown you'll
notice the Bee is'nt going out of
its way to make Brown uduly
prominent we're just the happi
est famiiy ever. 1 happen to know
alt-o that Brown hates Sheldon most
cordially. When you hear Brown
out making speeches and saying
fine things about Sheldon , you can
put it down as straight that he is
muUering under his breath. 'God'
forgive : ne for the lies. 1 hope
they choke him. '

ute like to sec the situation such
as it was in the legislative sessions
of 190u and 1905 , where we'd have
to ask the railroad lobby how to

me tired. " World Herald.
