The primary election passed off
very quietly. None of the candi
dates for county offices having op
position at the polls. There was
some talk out south of putting-up
men to run against Cumbow , Kos-
seterand Quigley but it was start
ed too late to draw any kind of a
following. River precinct gave
one vote to Kirae for she rill1on
the democratic ticket and five to
Dotson on the republican. The
returns from the different pre
cincts are coming in very slow and
the total vote will not be known
The Spirit that Helps a Town.
Last week the committee in
charge of the Fraternal Picnic and
Carnival , decided that one bridge
across the creek at the city park
was inadequate for the crowds
that will fill the grounds on the
date set for the big doings , and
made arrangements to put in two
more foot bridges. The material
was secured and the trusses , were
made by a local carpenter. The
work of putting the bridges in
place was done by less than a doz
en men who believe in helping the
town in any way they can. Xhis
was one of the ways ; the bridges
were a necessity and there was not
enough money to hire them put
iu , so they did the work for noth
ing. After everything is said and
done there will be some who will
not be pleased. Give the commit
tee a boost ; tell them they are
doing good work , for they are.
The little words of cheer that they
deserve will offset any amount of
dissatisfaction and grumbling done
by some who are never satisfied
with any public work. The
bridges are solid and perfectly
safe. Use them.
Land Office Notes.
The local land office does not
expect the abandoned Forb Kio-
brara military reservation to be
opened to settlement before the
spring or summer of 1912. The
President has signed an order
turning the land , with the excep
tion of the tract embraced in the
state experimental farm , over to
the Secretary of the Interior for
disposition under the law now ex
isting , or under new provisions as
Congress may enact. The law"
now , provides for the sale of land
in such reservations , at public sale
for cash , after the land has been
appraised ; but Judge Kinkaid ad
vises the register of the local office
that he intends to introduce a bill
providing for the opening of the
reservation under the homestead
laws , and the secretary will doubt
less withhold the .opening until
the regular session of Congress
next winter , the opening cannot
occur for many months.
Congress has passed an act ,
whieh it is supposed has now been
signed by the President , giving
settlers within this land district a
leave of absence from their home
steads until April 15 , 1912. The
local officers will not be acquainted
with the exact forms of the ac& un
til they receive copies of the act
from the general land office. One
'fact , however , may as well be im
pressed at once'upon the minds of
all persons who intend to take ad
vantage of the act , and that is that
the time during which the settler
is absent from the present time un
til the loth of next April must be
made up before final proof can be
offered. In other words , a settler
who is absent during the period
covered by this act is delaying his
final proof just that much longer.

passion for his fellow man. He
early embraced the Catholic faith ,
and was a devout attendant of that
church up to the time of his death ,
his purity was marked and sincere.
Many Indians from various sections
of the reservation were in attend
ance to pay their respects to sll
that remained of this noble Indian
and to extend to the sorrowing
widow- their tender and sincere
