Patrick Henry Kelley, one of the
oldest resident of Monroe, passed
away at three o'clock Sunday morning.
He had been in poor health for the
past two months, but not until Sat- (
urday did his condition become alarm
ing. He came to Platte county about
1859, an 1 sered in t'e civil war in a
Nebraska regiment. After the War he
returned to Monroe and lived on his
farm northeast of town, until a few ;
years ago, when he moved to Monroe.
For a number of years he had lived .
with his sister, Mrs. Anna Young, who
came here after the death of her hus
band. His wife died several years
ago, and no children were left by them.
He is survived by three brothers, John
M. Kelley. of Monroe, Dr. B. B. Kel
ley, of Billings. Montna, and Jesse
B. Kelley who lives in Coloradao, be
sides the sister. The funeral was held
Tuesday afternoon and interment was
made in the Friends cemetery west of
town. A peculiar coincident was the
fact that his frie nds had placed his
name on the prohibition ticket for
county treasurer, and that on election
day his friends carried him to his last
resting place. He was a man who was
a credit to the community in which he
lived, and held the esteem and respect
of all who knew him.

The total vote of Mr. Smith was 822,
as against 306 for Bergman and 212
for Mayberger. Mr. Mayberger made
his campaign that the country should
be represented and hoped to receive
the country vote while the city would
divide its votes between Smith and
Bergman. This plan faied to mater

In the Monroe district Supervisor
Wilson was sacrfiiced and George C.
Anderson will represent that district
after January, next Monroe voting
place, in Oconee township remembered
very kindly the work of Supervisor Wil
son in the Monroe bridge matter, and
returned 90 votes for him to 14 for
Mr. Anderson. On the other hand,
Mr. Anderson proved to be very popul
ar in his home township of Wood
ville, that township reversing the
Monroe vote almost exactly. The
other township voted in such a way a
to leave Anderson a majority of about
twenty. Two years ago, Mr. Wilson
was elected over William Webster, by
a majority of one.
There is one thing that appears in
the returns all the way through to the
credit of all candidates, both republi
can and democratic, and mat is the
magnificent vote received by them in
their respective home voting places
among their own neighbors. For
instince, in his old home in Lost Creek
township Fred Lecron ran about thirty
votes ahead of his ticket, while Gideon
I Braun reversed a three-to-one demo-
cat ic margin in Loup; John Hayes led
his ticket by thirty-five in Columbus
township, while John Graf's First
war! vote vote was almost as much
ahead of the average of his running
mates.. The votes on county judge
and county treasurer were not wholly
governed by jolitical territory as were
the others, each of the four candidates
carried some precincts that under or
diniry circumstances would have been
counted for the other.
Per congress, Dan V. Stephens has
been elected over Colonel Elliott, the
estimates of his majority varying from
2.5 DO to 1000. In the state, the
entire republican ticket seems to have
been elected, with the possible ex
exception that Judge Dean may have
defeated Judge Hamer. These later
two appear to be running closely.

How To Disinfect A Stable.
When an animal dies on the farm
of some infectious disease his carcass
should be destroyed by burning. In
case this precaution is rendered im
possible the body should at least be
buried at a depth of four or five feet
and covered with quicklime. Where
a shallow grave is used the diseased
remains may be subsequently disinter
red by some prowling animal and an
entire herd which is on pasture near
by may be exosed to the disease. An
thrax, especial I j', is often spread by
neglect of these precautions, as birds,
dogs or other animals prey on the un
buried carcass and distribute the
germs. Great care must be exercised
to prevent the transmission of anv
germ-bearing disease to the rest of
the herd through the deaths of one of
its members. The stable which has
housed an animal which has died of a
contagious disease should Jbe subjected
to rigorous sanitary treatment. All
the infected forage and bedding should
be raked up and burned, while the
walls should be well soaked with water
and then thoroughly scraped. In case
there i any rotten wood in the floor,
feed boxs, or stanchions, it should be
removed and burned, borne vigorous
gemicide which will stamp out all
possibility of further transmission of
the disease should then be used.
Lime it generally considered one of
the most efficient disinfectants, because

Be Your Own Rain Maker
Did the recent long, dry spell hit you pretty hard-cutting down your crop
yield and your income for the year? In the Big Horn Basin and the Yellowstone
Valley farmers have raised splendid crops. Their income this year will be
greater than ever and it all comes from an ample water supply. The farmer
"controlled the rain" and applied the water as his crops needed it. The Gov-
f ernment system of irrigation provides during the growing season two feet of
water per acre, the equivalent of twelve heavy rains of two inches each; think
what such a water supply would have meant to your community during the
summer of 1911.
Why not go with me on the next excursion into the Big Horn Basin, and
look over that land of sunshine and bounty; new Government units of the finest
kind of irrigated land near Ralston now available with perpetual water rights
on the easiest of terms. These are the richest gifts the Government has had
to bestow upon its people within thirty years.
