LC. S'otts wa * in town Friday
and Saturday. He's farming near
the old homestead where he settled
when he first came to the country
but he s'ill has his residence in
Cody and finds it very convenient
to move back to town to winter
like putting a herd of cattle into
the meadow near the house where
it isn't far to something to eat.
A. H. Keach was in town a
couple of days this week. Mr.
Keach is crippled in his limbs !
some and makes his living princi

Sparks some years ago and when !
not teaching tries to farm a little '
and raises enough to take care of !
a team and have something to sell.
It is his home , his place of abode ,
bis shelter from the storms and
the only place he may not be told
to "move on.His shelter may
be humble. His cottage may not
be a raaiision but it is his home as
he claims it and who would take it
away from him ? Mr Reach has

ranch , purchased some time ago
by C. J. Anderson for Mord &
Haas , 528 head of fours and fives ,
were delivered and weighed up at
the Merriman stock yards , Satur
day , and Shipped. The average
weight of the bunch , per head , was
1323 pounds. If we ever learned
the price paid we have forgotten
it , but one thing is certain , they
bret over § 50 per head , and the to
tal sum must be close to $30,000
00. We have heard the expens-
of this ranch esitmated at § 12,000 ,
but we havenoidei how nearly
that may be. The Cody Cow Boy.

There seems to be some quc-

Sheldon's appointment of the ? our
supreme judges. ludge Sullivan
has resigned after qualify ing un
der the governor's appointment
and claims "sufficient reasons"
prompted his action. When the1
proposition was made to Sheldon
that hi appoint two democrats and
two republicans and that Govern
or-elect olutllenberger would con
firm the appointments after the
legislature canvassed the voies
cast at the election , She hi on re
fused and took upon himself the
authority of interpreting the law
to suit himsulf and appointed
three republicans and Judge ! Sul-
1 van , a democrat. It teems that
the legislature will have something
to t-av ubout whether the uinend-
inents carried und that they have
have the right of canvassing the
votes cast and of announcing the
result at which time Gov. Shullcn-
berger will be the goveinor and
he will appoint the supreme judg
es. Sheldon hus soughr to enforce
his authoiitv und has assumed that
he could canvass the votes and
aiinouncfc to himself the result and
thttii take advantage of a few shoit
days that he is governor to ap

Sheriff liosseter took a prisoner
to Lincoln Tuesday and expected
to witness a foot ball game that is
exciting the local enthusiast. E C.
Davenport and Frank Fischer , jr ,
also went along for a visit abroad
and incidentally to see a foot ball
game. We don't know who plays
r.or where and ue don't think we'll
take the pains to look it up. Unless
some one tells us about it we'll
probably go down to the dark val
ley without knowing what game-
they expected to see. That's how
much we care about foot ball as
played by American ! colego ! < and
sports. When our boy gets big
enough to go to college we'll call
him home if he plays" foot ball arid
we'll make an effort to send him
to some college where they don't
play football. That's not saying
the boys won't have a good time
at Lincoln , for they will get as
much out of a game of football as
a boy with a box of fire crackers
at a 4th of July picnic , and they'll
have a good time every minute of
the time they're away from home
and there's the real pleasure and
advautange of going. It's going
somewhere when there's some
thing going on and a brisk rub
against the people away from
home will cause them to take more
interest in business when they get
Otto Roberts was clown from
near Irwin last week and called at
our office to get acquainted. His
father , Chas. Roberts , and his
boys are farming 450 ac'TS and
raise about 1:2,000 bushels of grain
and potatoes each year which they
sell at an average price of 40c per
bushel. Mr. Roberts started with
a small farm and now has nine
quarter sections. He has doi e
well and others can do well in this
country. Farming land isorih
more now than it was some ; \ ears
years ago but it is selling too
cheap yet. It will double in value
in the next ten years if prices and
demand 1 eip ageing like they have
started. The land is worth" more
because it will produce its value
now in one crop. We raise al
most as much here as down east
in their best and we are surer of
a crop here. Our general average
is as good as anywhere that we
know of and there seems to be no
limit to the extent of crops grown
here. Tame grasses are just be
ginning to be countc 1 as a possi
bility in this country among many
who had never tried ; \et \ to raise
it but have seen their neighbors
raising it successfully and they are
contemplating trying it. Alfalfa
will grow on any of our farm land
and red top and timothy will grow
on the hay flats. Brome grass
will grow where nothing else will
glow and seems to be the grass
for sandy soil or saud hills.
