Reports from the throe now towns
of llerrlck , liurke and Gregory Indi
cate thut there Is going to lie consid
erable settlement upon these sites
thin fall. In this connection Hcrrlck
is fur In tlio lead at the present time ,
with Gregory following for Hocotul
pliice. It seems thut the triple fac
tions battling for sway nt Uitrko have
deadlocked all progress nt this place
temporarily , but It Is believed that by
spring , when sottlotnent of the reser
vation begins In earnest , this town-
fllto will boom Into prominence and
leadership and offer the most attract
ive prospect for business. The fourth
site has at last been definitely hoard
from , and Is christened Eden , In hon
or of W. V Eden , the C. & N. W. agent
at Fairfax. A fifth town by the
name of Dlckson , Is reported as
launched on the northwest quarter of
section sixteen school land , In town
ship 99 , range 73. A private Individu
al Is the solo promoter as far as can
bo learned.
At Herrlck Just at present the out
look Is very flattering , Indeed. Tlio
many tents and buildings on this per
fectly level tract looms up handsome
ly In the distance , giving the now city
a prominence at this early stage of
its growth which augurs exceedingly
well for Its future. Many of the build
ings and shacks which were erected
ns temporary structures at lionosteel
during the registration are being
wheeled entire , ! o this townslte Two
wells have been completed so that
good water is now assured. There Is
no lack of competition In the rush for
business establishments. Six lumber
yards are at present on the ground ;
several saloons are moving In ; res
taurants and general stores are nu
merous ; a bank Is In process of es
tablishment , and the Rosebud Times ,
the llrst newspaper In the city , has
already been given Its first Issue.
As to the surveys and the legal as
pects , the "sooners * " Incorporation
still has possession. However , Judge
Stnrchor Is proceeding undaunted with
his own survey and will make every
effort to file and prove up the city
lots through his townslto petition. It
is an accepted fact that the register
and receiver of the United States land
odlco upholds him in his stand , from
wnlch decision a representative of the
incorporation is at present in Wash
ington making an appeal. The out
come will be awaited with Intense
interest ,
At Gregory , the third townslte , set
tlement Is likewise well under way.
A few of tne temporary buildings
which are bidding farewell to Bone-
steel are headed upon a long journey
for this town. Lying upon the west
ern border of the county , and as dis
tant from the distributing center of
Bonesteel as it is , a number of per
manent business establishments are
sure to be founded there this fall. As
to organization the occupants of
Gregory have been a unit from the
start. While friction and litigation
have marred the early success of Her
rick and Burke to a certain extent ,
Gregory will undoubtedly nourish un
der the benign Influences of peace.
Eden is practically in the hands of
people from Fairfax. Besides being
named for one of the latter's leading
citizens , the choice lots are In possess
ion of Fairfax people , a fact entirely
proper by virtue of priority. County
Judge Starcher , accompanied by a
number of his fellow citizens , made
his way to this site last Friday and
laid out the town. They reported a
beautiful location on a table of land
lying fairly in the fork of Bull creek
and surrounded by one of the best ag
ricultural districts of the country.
Eden will undoubtedly be heard from
ere many years.
The report as to the new town of
Dlckson , started on the northwest
school quarter of section 16 , town 99
range 73 , though coming from a relia
ble person , Mr. John Fllsram , brings
little with It to show that the Individ
ual promoter Is going to be successful
in his venture. The gentleman who
evidently believes that he Is going to
establish a town there. Is one Mr ,
Wllcox from the White River district
Mr. Wllcox is on the ground with his
tent , and has several loads of lumber
on the site preparatory to building
his general store. He says Dlckson is
going to be the terminal of the North
western railroad. Bonesteel Pilot

Investigation Into the case of Fry
vs. Paul , In which Ernest Paul was
arrested charged with stealing a gun
belonging to John Fry , convinces the
friends of the young man that Pau
had no thought of thievery. The
friends of Paul state that he and Frf
have been good friends and closs
neighbors for a long time and hav
been in the habit of borrowing eacl
other's Implements , wagons , etc. On
a certain day two weeks or so ago
Paul wanted to do some shooting ant
found that his own gun was broken
He wont over to Neighbor Fry's to
borrow his gun. Not finding Mr. Fryer
or any of his family at home and b
ing prefectly familiar with the place
through the visits he had made there ,
ho went Into the house and took th
gun. The next morning when Fr >
saw him ho asked htm If he had hi
gun , to which the young man repllei
that ho had. and straightway returno
It. This should have ended the mat
ter , but It didn't. It Is alleged tlm
meddlesome neighbors then took
hand and persuaded Fry that it wa
his duty to have Paul arrested , whle
10 did. At the trial , which was hold

Haley has been In the now town on

"There are some fairly good chanc

Every west-bound train passing
through Norfolk carries landseekers
who are anxious to look over the
ranches In western Nebraska that are
being offered In 640 acre tracts under
the Klnkald law. The hotels at Long
Pine are crowded every night with the
rush. At O'Neill , Valentine and Craw
ford the land offices are still doing
rushing business and at nil Intermedi
ate points the trains bring many to
look. A number of parties plan to
go In together and join six or eight
farms. Most of the land worth filing
on has now been taken up , but now
and then a patch remallns worth going
after.

The annual stock rush on the
Northwestern , carrying cattle from
Belle Fourche , S. D. , and other far
western points , has begun. Saturday
seven extra trains ran through Nor
folk and from now on there will be
many more.
"If the strike were only settled , '
said a railroad man today , "we woulc
ho pushing so many trains through
here that the rails wouldn't cool off. '
Regarding the strike situation , a
packing house representative said
"It will probably end today. We ha <
promises of many men to come back
to work today. They need the monej
and South Omaha workmen had no
grievance , anyway. "
Dispatchers Merrlam and Adams

again with trains In the stock run.

There Is every probability that an

teamsters for some time , and sine
some of the worst mud holes hav
boon filled with clay there has been
no consldarable Improvement. Load
ed wagons get stuck about every da
when there has been a rain , and to
day was no exception to the rule ,
dray loaded with salt getting stuck
back of the Bishop block. The effort
of the team to pull it out wore fruit
less and a faithful , hut smaller team
was substituted that did their love

mire , but the footing was not goo

The runt grows within the tissues

readily told when the spores burst
through and appear on the surfaco.
The pink mold , on the contrary , grows
In tiiftH or even layers on the surface
( if the heads , sending little HUJkora
down Into the tlxsues of the host
plant. The runt has two kinds o (
spores ; the red rust HporoH , or sum
mer spores , which nro formed con
tinually during early summer and
germinate at once to Infect new
plants ; mid the black runt , or winter
spores , which are formed as the grain
matures and have thick walls for the
purpose of living safely through the
winter. The pink mold ha.s for the
most part a single kind of spore ; It Is
thin-walled and germinates within a
few hours under proper conditions ,
but it Is also capable of lying through
the winter.

adequate remedy for It. If the sea
son be a dry one or the Hold upland ,
the damage will be lens ; In a wet
year and In low lands , the loss will
be great. In combating these serious
dlHeaset . , of the small grain the only
measures worth while are preventive
ones Young fields of grain are regu
larly Infected from the black rust
Hporen of the old stubble , of straw
stacks , etc. There Is little or no
danger from the seed grain. In con
sequence all badly rusted straw and
stubble should he burned to destroy
the Hpores. Where a header Is used
to harvest a rusted Held , the whole
field should be burned over afterward.
In addition , rotation should be uni
formly practiced , as corn , alfalfa , etc ,
are not attacked by the rust of small
grains , and wheat and oats are much
less subject to rust when they follow
other crops. As wheat and oats ma
ture early before there Is serious dan
ger from drouth , as a rule , they
should bo sown largely upon upland ,
where conditions nre less favorable
to the development of rust and mold.
Careful draining of lowlands will
greatly diminish the ravages of these
fungi. The greatest hope of the
farmer , however , lies In the produc
tion of rustroststant varieties , a work
which barely begun aa yet , contains
great promise ,
