DONESTEEL HEARS THAT THIS
WILL DE DONE.
THE CONTRACTORS HAVE DID
It Is Reported In a Oonesteel Paper
That Contractors Have Deen Look
ing Over the Field for Some Time
and New Extension Will Result.
Bononteol Pilot : Wo have been re
liably Infornu'd tliat rallroiul contractor -
or liavn been In our mldat for Un
paid few weeks and that they were
lioro for tin1 purpose of looking over
' Ihi < lay of the land wont of Gregory to

Ing which tinNoith western propoHC
to liullil this spring for the conveni
ence of tin' public during Iho great
rimli for land In Trlpp county.
Wu also understand that nil bldH
have already been forwarded to the
company'H headquarters and that ac
tion will bo taken on them Immediate
ly and the contract awarded.
Thin , If It bo trnu , and ( hero HCCIIIH
to bo no doubt but what It IB , will
inako the new town -of DulliiH the tor
uilnim of the North western uxtciiHlon
west front Uonos'tcol , at loiwl during
the present year. It Is expected that
as HHii ( as tlio company has reaped
the bonelltH from the Trlpp county
opening , that they will Iminmedlately
Htart operations and coiiHtruct a roar
through Trlpp and Myor countlcH am
connect with tholr Rapid Clty-Plerro
line at I'hllllpH , n town located direct
ly wcHt of Midland. With thin con
ncctlon It would give the company a
direct line between Sioux City and the
Illack lllllH country , and shorten the
roil to about Heventy-two miles. The
Nowcnstlo-Nlohrnra line , which Is now
liolng coiiHtnicled , will also assist li
shortening the route between those
points , It having been llgnrod out that
when both tlu'Hu connections nro made
Sioux City will be 118 miles closer to
the Hlnck Hills country. This will nn
doubtodly bo the main line of the
Northwestern between these points
mid will be a great iMMm to the people
of this section of the country , as It
will put thorn closer and give their
bolter service to good markets.
Aa a natural sequence to the oxton
fllon of the road so as to push throngl
Trlpp and Myor counties , and give UH
a direct outlet to the Black Hills conn
try and Sioux City by a much shorter
route , will como the location of the
division point at Bonesleel. This must
follow as the city will be most favor
nbly located as to central position am'
this means material growth and pros
porlty for Honesteel and the surround
jug country. The railroad olllclals
will not quibble or split hairs over
the division location. With them It Is
a business proposition that must am
will best conserve to their Interests litho
the dispatch of their business as wel
us in accommodations so far as
track facilities and the acquiring of
property goes for the Improvements
the road must necessarily make for
the work that falls to the division
It will not be long before Bonestoo !
will bo In It most effectually as a rail
road town , and with patient anxiety
will our cltlezns watch the work o
completing the network of extensions
which will bring to us a great promt
nonce and population.
Bonesteel citizens should congratu
late themselves for the reason that
their town Is so well located and prac
tlcnlly assured a division point.

The creamery Industry in Norfolk
will have the special care of a now
corporation backed by Norfolk busi
ness men. The Norfolk Creamery
company , organized for the burpose of
bringing lo Norfolk her proper share
of Iho creamery business of Nebraska ,
Is about to place Us business on a
firm basis prepanilory to fuluro
growlh. During Iho present month
the business will bo Installed In its
now quarters in the Wltler building
on Norfolk avcnuo.
The appearance of this now Industry
n Norfolk with every prospect for
a substantial growth carries with It
the retelling of Iho old slory of Ihe
old slory of Iho natural advantages of
this clly ns a business and shipping
center of northeastern Nebraska and
ho germ of the creamery business
once planted hero could not help but
levelop and call for public attention.
The Norfolk Creamery company
was born in the milk supply house
opened In this city by W. F. Petty in
December , 1905. Mr. Polly secured
.he small frame building opposite the
; ) ostofllco. He made a business of
mylng milk and cream and retailing
t about the city. Ho slarlcd mak
ing butter In a small way. He soon
lad the opportunlly of making more
bulter than he had facilities to put
ip. The business outgrow his estab-
.Ishment. It outgrow bis capital. It
called for reorganization on a larger
justness basis. Local business men
took hold of the scheme. They formed
a creamery ; company to take over the
justness Ihat had grown too big for
the city milk supply house with Its
The Norfolk Creamery company
was organized two months ago. The
capital stock was placed at $10,000
and papers were prepared to Incorpor
ate the new company under the state
laws. The company was backed by
some of the mosts nbstantlal business
men In Norfolk. Its list of officers is
as follows : President , J. W. Us
som ; vice-president , W. A. Wltzlgmau ;
secretary , George D. Butlerfleld ; treas
nrer , D. C. Harrington. S. II. Ander
son , who has had experience in the
creamery business , will act -as gen
eral manager for the house on the
road. W : F. Petty who pushed the
business from the start , will be the
local manager of the plant. Ho has
had , many years experience In the
The Creamery company took over
the business of Ihe milk supply com
pany on January 7 , 1907. From Its
present Inadequate quarters it Is sup
plying milk and cream to some 350
customers , making a thousand pounds
of butter a week and giving employ
ment to five men.
The Witler building on Norfolk
avenue will be occupied by the cream
ery beginning probably a week from
Monday. Just now the building Is
being thoroughly overhauled for lls
now use. An office room Is being
arranged , a churning room is being
conslructed In the basement and the
building ns a whole Is In preparation
for the now machinery to be installed
The Norfolk Creamery company will
start out on the basis of the business
already bulll up during Ihe past year
by the milk supply house. It will
probably start by making some 1,500
pounds of butter a week , with a capa
city for nt least 1,000 pounds a day
Cream Is already shipped to Norfolk
from as far norlh as Bonesleel. The
new creamery will offer a markel for
cream Ihat can bo supplied from a
score or so of counties adjacent to
Norfolk. There Is an unlimited market -
ket for butter. After supplying tho'
demand In this lerrltory , largo sup
plies of bulter can be sent profitably
easl to Chicago or west to the coast.
The capacity of the local creamery
will bo whatever the business will
make it. Judging from the oxperlenco
of lowns like Columbus , It is possible
to safely predict that within three
years the Norfolk creamery will bo
turning out more than five or six
thousand pounds of butler a day and
giving employment to perhaps a score
Norfolk has not had a creamery
since the Harding Creamery company
moved to Omaha seven years ago.
At thai lime Ihero was a tendency to
concentralo Iho creamery business In
Ihe largo cenlers. With the coming
of Iho cream separalors now In nearly
every farm home , It is no longer neces
sary to maintain expensive separating
stations at shipping points. This Is
ono factor working to the advantage
of the smaller lowns. Norfolk's lo-
callon as a shipping cenler In the
heart of this section of the stale opens
up nn encouraging fuluro for Ihls now
A lot of women would adopt the
raw food system of diet , no doubt , If
they thought the bear in the family
would stand for It.
