that: At noon at Okarcha there was one
man, in tho evening there wero 1500, and
there were three saloons and two gro
ceries in full blast, and a lumber yard as
big as Hughes's; Bont Speico has com
promised with the Town Co. by releas
ing 40 acres, which with three other
similar releases, givo the Town Co. ICO
acres, leaving Bont's 120 a valuablo tract
of land. Bont had a number of the
Platte county men helping him, but as
fast as they would dig post holes, other
fellows would good-naturedly kick the
dirt back in; crops aro well advanced
down there, corn being about knee-high;
they tell that R.T. Price bought a horso
for $70, rode him 12 miles, came upon a
nice piece of land, and ho remarked,
"Here's whoro I'll spend the rest of my
days." But it was an Indian allotment,
and his horse died. They say, however,
that he afterwards bought a claim; Jim
Connelly made the run of seven miles
for his land in 28 minutes, Caldwell
made his in 25, every man carrying with
him a stake with a flag on it, ready to
mark his claim; one man lost one of his

place, and drove on. Mr. Caldwell was
six days making the trip home. The

water being deep enough to reach the
floor of the cars. He parted company

readers as a clerk at the Pawnee Indian
Agency in 1870. He tells us that not
long ago he saw Major J. M. Troth" (for
merly Indian agent at Genoa), and who
now lives at Accotink, Virginia, in good
health. He also spoke of Dr. Davis liv
ing somewhere in western New York.
Mr. Howell has been a subscriber to The
Joukkaii all these twenty-two years, and
has thus kept track of a number of his
old acquaintances here. He was looking
in excellent health and spirits, and said
he had wonderfully enjoyed his trip.

croup can be prevented. True croup
never appears without a warning. The
first symptom is hoarseness; then the
child appears to have taken a cold or a
cold may have accompanied the hoarse
ness from the start After that a pe
culiar rough cough is developed, which
is followed by the croup. The time to
act is when the child first becomes
hoarse; a few doses of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy will prevent the attack.
Even after a rough cough has appeared
the disease may be prevented by using
this remedy as directed. It has never
been known to fail. 25 cent, 50 cent
and $1 bottles for sale by C. E. Pollock

There is no danger from whooping
cough when Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy is freely given. It liquefies the
tough, tenacious mucus and aids in its
expectoration. It also lessens the se
verity and frequency of the paroxysms
of coughing, and insures a speedy re
covery. There is not the least danger
in giving it to children or babies, as it
contains no injurious substance. 50 cent

Some foolish people allow a cough
to run until it gets beyond the reach of
medicine. They often say, "Oh, it will
wear away, but in most cases it wears
them away. Could they be induced to
try the successful medicine called
Kemp's Balsam, which is sold on a posi
tive guarantee to cure, they would im
mediately see the excellent effect after
takfng the first dose. Price 50c and $1.
