In some Oregon counties , before the coyote bounty law was repealed , hunt ers developed the business by merely removing the scalps and then turning the coyotes loose. The anlmajs be came so well disciplined that they would como to the hunter's cabin to bo scalped at the end of every six months , that tlmo being rcqulrori to renew the growth. The coyotes are easily trained and get so they like to bo scalped , appearing as regularly and cheerfully as a family cow imbued with the habit of going homo to bo milked. They relish the approving snillcb of the hunter and trot off , after yielding $2 worth of hldo apiece , foci- Ing that they have gained a mark of good character and can plunder chick en coops and sheep corrals undis turbed. The Herald Htiggostfl this profitable pursuit of the industry for the consideration of hunters In Dlxon county In case the proposed bounty IH granted by the voters there at the coming election.

Gurney , Well Known In This Section of Nebraska , Goes to Fremont. Wlnsldo , Neb. , Ort. 31. Mrs. E. R. Gurney and children departed Monday for their new homo in Fremont , says the Tribune. They drove the family horse and expected to arrive at Fre mont last night.

He informs the Tribune that ho will bo hero the most of the time until the first of Jan- nary as ho has so very much business to attend to. Thus another one of Winslde's very best families have left , mid while it Is a source of re gret to lose this estimable family , and a citizen who has always done so much for Wlnsldo as Ed. Gurney has , yet it is gratifying to know that we shall still retain his interests In the bank. Though ho goes as vice-presi dent and business manager of the First National bank at Fremont and resides there , as long as he has an Interest in the Merchant's State bank born ho will be interested in the town I and it will not be like losing him en- tiroly. The Tribune is glad of Mr. \ Gurney's promotion in the hanking business and hopes that he may go on until ho roaches the highest pinnacle ! of fame and fortune. Last Saturday ovonlngan impromptu 1 reception was hold in the opera house In honor of Mr. and Mrs. Gurney , who were so soon to leave Winslde. The Idea originated with several of the ladles Saturday afternoon and many invitations sent out , in fact everybody was invited and about a hundred people ple from the town and country congre gated and spent the evening in a so cial manner. There was music , games and a lunch consisting of coffee , sand wiches , cakes and apples , after which F. M. McElrath told in a few words why the people wore there , tUo object of the gathering , and praised the la dies who were so thoughtful. To these remarks Mr. Gurney responded in his usually interesting manner , but as ho said ho had secured Len Ncodham , A. II. Carter , Sam Row and W. N. Wright to make speeches for him that evening - ing , ho did not take up much tlmo. The gentlemen referred to did not fill their engagements , however , mod esty forbidding , probably , but Dr. Curry had a few well chosen remarks. Before the evening was over familiar .songs were sung , closing by singing "God bo Witli You 'Till wo Moot Again. " It was a most enjoyable oc casion yet tinged with sadness when the significance of the occasion was the paramount thought. Mr. and Mrs. Gurney stood by the door when it was time for the company to dis perse , and received the good-byes and best wishes of all their friends. Snow In Black Hills. Load , S. D. Nov. 4.

Valentine Takes Away the Hill Girl , Fourteen Years of Age and the Father of the Girl Has Notified Of- fleers to Arrest Them. Crolghton , Neb. . Nov. 1 ! . Special to The News : The olllcors of Crolghton and surioundlng towns have boon no tified to keep a lookout for n mini named Valentino , thirty years of ago , and a garl named 11111 , who dlsap- I eared from their homos at lllooiu- Hold joHttM'dny. The families live on neighboring farms near Illoomllold , . . and Valen tino's attentions to the young girl have lioen against the wishes of her parents. Yesterday ho Induced her to accompany him and Ilioy have not wlnco boon seen , so the supposition Is that he has kidnapped her and taken her out of the country. Mr. Hill , lather of the girl , was very greatly exorcised and has noti fied the olllcors of neighboring towns to arrest the couple on sight. If ( he ngos given are correct and Valentino has Induced the girl to run away with him the penalty will ho quite severe If ho Is caught and proven guilty. A settlement between the two fam ilies would bo the only recourse for evading the penalties of the law. Took a Livery Team. Crolghton , Nob. , Nov. 2. Special to The News : Later Information on the Hloomflold kidnapping case has boon received. The man In the case Is Ilort Valentino , who has been workIng - Ing on a farm near the town , and so far as known , has no relatives in this part of the stato. The name of the girl is Grace Hill , and she is hut fourteen years of age. Valentino hired a rig at a Hlooin- Held livery barn and drove away with the girl Sunday afternoon at I o'clock , since which time nothing has boon scon or hoard of mini , girl or team , and a charge of stealing a team and buggy is quite likely to bo lodged against the fellow along with his other crime , if the team is not soon returned. An earnest endeavor is being made to locate the missing couple and the rig. MARRIED IN SOUTH DAKOTA. Crolghton , Neb. , Nov. 3. Special to The News : Hert Valentino , the farm hand who ran away witli the fourteen year old Hill girl from llloomflold Sunday afternoon , was arrested last night in Niobrara by'tho town mar shal and Is hold awaiting the arrival of the Hloomlield officer who will take the couple hack to Hloomlield where Valentino will probably bo given a preliminary hearing under the charge of kidnapping or some other law that will bo applicable to the case. To the Niobrara oflicial Valentino said that ho bail been in South Dako ta with the girl and that they were married there. Ho explained that ho wanted the girl to become his wife and that she wanted him that It was a case of love , and not an attempt to violate the laws of the stato. If , however - over , it is true that the girl is but | fourteen years of ago , as assorted by I her lather , she is not yet her own I mistress and the angry parents may j succeed in making it decidedly nn- j comfortable for the man in the case if they are determined to prosecute. It may bo that the laws of South Da kota will legall/.o such a marriage , i but the lawrf of Nebraska are out spoken on the subject , and may form a Imsid lor prosecution regardless of the South Dakota law. At an early hour this morning the Hloomlield official had not yet arrived In Niobrara , and Valentino and the girl wore still in the custody , of the Niobrara olllclal. MONDAY MENTION.

All such collections of corn , If acceptable to the commission , will bo sent to St. Louis and entered In the individual growers' names for the premiums offered by the oxjositlon authorities without expense to the growers.

For this purpose a box ' may bo carried on the rear of the I wagon and desirable ears laid carefully in this box. The ears should bo dried in a heated room , but the kitchen Is not a good place ou account of the | steam. Great care should bo taken not to shell oven a single kernel from the ear. To ship , wrap each ear separately in j cloth or paper , pack carefully In a box , | stufllng paper in any remaining space i to prevent the ears from shaking abou1 in transit. Each box hhould contain the ship per's name and address. Ship by freight , prepaid , to the secretary of the comlsslon , 111 McCaguo building , Omaha , Nebraska. NIOBRARA.
