Geo. Hershey tells us that h (
saw E. L. Hutchinson up to Hoi
Springs and says he is doing finely
and his arm and wrist are nearly
well and he is nearly well of his
ailments. Hot baths and ther
some more and copious sweats dc
the work like the wonderful cures
of old when they dipped seven
times in Iliver Jordan.
Geo. Hershey returned from
Hot Springs yesterday morning ,
where he has been doctoring for
three weeks according to Script
ural methods1 of dipping seven
times in Minnekata hot water.
He has lost 40 pounds surplus fat
and is feeling 20 years younger ,
and is able to eat again with some
relish. George may have to lay
aside his big suits and get smaller
ones , but he can now stoop over
to lace his shoes.
Kichard Grooms was in town
yesterday and told us that the
bridge recently built' across the
Niobrara near Burge came near
washing out a few days ago and
would have been completely under
mined , but for the prompt work
of Mr. Parker and Mr. Grooms
and other neighbors who began
work promptly to build cement
bottoms around the abuttments ,
which seemed to be of shallow
foundation and the dirt approach
was nearly all washed out.
A. C.yoche of Arabia called
at our otllce Monday to get ac
quainted and extend his subscript
ion to the Democrat , lie was for
merly from down near Platts-
mouth and moved his family to
Cherry County about two years
ago. He is a Democrat and takes
considerable interest in affairs of
our government and takes 40
papers he says , which he and his
wife enjoy reading during spare
time and evenings. Some people
think they can get along without
a paper , but what a lonesome
home compared with Mr. Woche ,
with 42 papers and the news of
the world's doings always at his
home when the mail comes in.
E. L. Davis , formerly of this
county , but lately of New York ,
returned last week , and has been
visiting relatives and friends in
the country north of town , at the
home of J. F. , Broad , we believe
now. We met him on the street
here and wondered if our eyes de
ceived us. Mr. Davis haSf sold his
farm back in New York , and
again thinks of coming west , but
is yet seerns undecided as to
whether he will locate here or go
bo Idaho. He sees a big differ
ence in New York after having
lived in this country for a while ,
and his health not bein r very
good he hopes to profit both fi
nancially and physically in re-
burning to the West. We ex
pected to have a longer talk with
him , but didn't get to see him
again , and in waiting for him to
come in to see us , overlooked his
visit last week.
We saw County Commissioner ,
N. S. Rowley last week when he
returned from a trip up in the
western part of the county where
ihe County Board was called on
account of three bridges that
were washed out by recent high
water and ice gorges on the Nio
brara river. The llockford bridge
an 85 foot span , 0 miles south of
Merriman and also the Crane
Bridge , about a 130 foot span , 13
miles southeast of Merriman were
wooden structures and were wash
ed down the river a considerable
distance and were badly demolish
ed. The Lavaca bridge was a new
steel bridge about three years ago ,
but the ice piled up to the top of
the bridge , smashing it down and
carried it down the river 200
yards. A Canton bridge man ac
companied the Commissioners and
we understand will soon replace
