Di'iiL-l County.
Deuol countalns an area of about twonty-
ono hundred and thirty-six square mlles , sev
enty miles north and south and thirty miles
east and west.
The county Is drained on the south by the
Lodge Polo and South Platto. along the val
ley of which runs the Union Paclllc railroad.
The two principal cities of the county are lo
cated on said road. Big Springs , a beautiful
town , Is situated In the south-east corner of
the county and surrounded by a splendid as-
rioaltural country In the valley of the South
Chaupell , the county seat , is located near
the south center , In ttio beautiful valley of
the Ledge Polo , contains two banks the
Ucuel County State bank , organized some
two years ago , with Hon. 15. R Clayton of
Macedonia , la. , at Its head , and the Commer
cial bank , with Jlrst class business mon'as its
managers , both of which are doing a good
business. It also contains two church organ
izations and three civic societies , all in Ilour-
ishlnr ; conditions. All lines of business ar > >
represented , as is also the press in the Chop-
pell Hcgistor , iindor the able management of
S. P. Morgan.
Through the center of the county from the
northwest to the southeast Hews the North
Platte river , which will soon bo bridged la
two places , the bonds having boon voted and
the contract let. Blue , Rush aud Lost creeks ,
wind their way from the north like streams
of molten silver , upon thn margins and In the
largo valleys of which there Is a most luxuri
ant growth of blue stem , where thousands of
tons of hay will bo harvested during thu
season. These streams wind their
way across the wide valley
and Into thn North Plntto. Their source is
in the north part of IDouel county , around
the numerous lakes of which feed largo
herds of which are now reauy for the butch
ers' block.
There is no resort in the west where
sportsmen can have a belter tlmo and where
came Is so plentiful and wl.ore the piscator
ial excursion can go with such confidence as
in north Dcuul county.
The North Plane valley running diago
nally through the county from live to sovou
miles wldo is u perfect piradiso.
The past two years has been a little dry
for the corcals and cattle , horses and shop :
have been thu object of attention and a source
of satisfactory revenue.
This season has boon remarkably good for
the farmer.
There will bo lumdvods of tons of hay cut
on the divides upon the North Platte and
Ledge Polo this season , where the "click" of
the mower was never hoard before.
Greeting the eye Trom every direction are
fields of golden gram consisting of wheat ,
oats , rye and barley Of Immense urowth , the
yield per aero of thcso corcals Is variously
estimated at from llftoon to forty bushels per
acre , and the corn crop looks equally well
where It has been cultivated.
Fully olchty-flvo per cent of this region is
first-class farm land , and the day is not far
distant when It will be ono of the richest
9arts of Nebraska.
In case of dry weather ncarlv the entire
county is susceptiablc of irrigation and while
water has not been ncodod this season and
may not be in the future iu years to coino.
thu various ditch companies have completed
arrangements by which they cau Hood the
Tho. Union Pacific railroad company has
completed a survey from North Platte up
this valluv on to Fort FoUorman. The 71.
it M. running parallel with the county on
the north lor a distance of thirty miles and
on to the Ulack Hills , and the main line of
the Union Padllo sweeping through thu
south and to Ueuvor , gives the county the
Dcst shipping facilities possible.
Kromlor County.
Frontier county , scorns to have been over
looked , In thu general report of the state and
some may have formed the Idea that there Is
no Frontier county In this state ; but there is ,
and a big ono , which has boon bora since wo
had n state , almost. It was organized many
years ago , when wo yet had the Indians
among us , in an Indian tepee down on the
famous Medicine river , famous for Its being
the homo of Dr. Carver , the great gunshot ,
its tall llnu gr.issos , heavy timber , wood
ticks and mosquitoes !
Frontier county Is fortv-two miles long
and twenty-four union wldo , and contalnos
within its boundsli'i.OSO ( acres of land.
73 per cent of which ls tillable and
and all Is good grass land. The soil Is a
black loam of four to sovoii foot dopth. No
batter producing soil iu the state. Only
about Si ! per cent of the tillable land Is
under cultivation today.
Ttio Inhabitants of the county are mostly
af American birth , a few ( ioniums and
Scandinavians are scattered over the county.
As a cluss the Inhabitants of the county are
Industrious aud thrift } ' and , ns wo lie near
the western portion of the great rain belt of
the state the industries are diversified.
Crops of all Kinds grow In abundance and
stock of all kinds are thrifty and liud good
pasturogo on the natural grasses of the
ri'gton. This gives double advantage to the
man who locates hero for agricultural
pursuit * , ns ho can graze his stock cheap
during the summer and food his grain pro
ducts at homo.
It is true that this portion of the state was
In distress last year on account of the drouth
but the experiences of last year was so much
apart from what the people wuro used to
that It was very hard on us. For seven or
eight years the farmer * had ccopod their
lauds and every year harvested good crops
Mid no ouo believed that tlu < y could loose
any year , anil with this Idea tuoy would soil
off everything they raised oxcopt. jwrhaps
enough for seed and feed for stoca during the
curly part of the following season , and when
the failure came It caught people out of
everything aud loft the majority of the home
steaders subjects of charity. It is hard to
think that .1 year llko last year might bo u
blessing ton county ; hut such It was to
Frontier , as the people hereafter will have u
llttlu laid by for "a rainy day" ( or a "dry
day" ) would probably bo better.
The crops In Frontier county this year nro
limply immense. The acreage will exceed
any former year by at least 11) per ccut uud
thoylotdpor aero li ono-flfth bettor than ,
nvof boloro. Sample * of outs 0 to 0.5 foot In
hlght Is a very commou thing , and the ,
burloynnd llax Holds show up finely. No
proltler sight can bo seen than a look at the
grout fields of small grain as they stand all
over the county , and the western part of
the state for that matter. No threshing has
boon donoyet , but experienced farmers bilk
of twenty-two to thirty bushels of wheat to
the acre and all other cereals In proportion.
Com Is a little behind ns the rains * In .Juno

.Tho county has many stock fecdors.
There nro poruaps 1,0JO steers , to bo pre
pared lor the market , within the couuty , ns
corn was so high last year , and fat cattle so
cheap , that the most of our stockmen carried
tin' ' * cattle nvor and tills year have au extra
lot of cattle to put on the market as soon m
they can fat them. Frontier county has
thtoo line flouring mills , ouo at May wood , of
fifty barrels capacity , ono at Curtis of 100
barrels capatlty and ono on the Mcilclno
two miles north of Stockvlllo of llfty barrels
capacltv , all roller process and operated by
wntor power. The mill and power at Curtis
Is the best Iu the western half of the state ;
having a twonty-two and run by
water from the lake , which covers over 125
acres of ground and cannot bo surpassed ,
The county has many living streams of
water which afford the dest of opportunity
for stock and guarantee at all times a good
rain fall. Among the streams is the Medicine ,
which runs from the north-west'to the south
west , the spring midway between the Mudl-
clnu and Willow , In the center of the county ;
from the north are the Curtis and Fox cruoks
mid In the east and south-cist nro the IJocr ,
Plum , Kastand West Muddy crcoki , allnoo.l

The towns of the county are F.nstlsStock-

Bood towns and doing fair business. Curtis
is the most important both in sl/o aud bus

There are six batiks In the county , about
eighteen general stores , eight hardware
stores , six drug stores , and many other minor
businesses carried on at the several towns ,
yet there are many places to bo tilled by livolv ,
cuorgotlo ner-jons whom wo would bo glad to
sou cast their lot with us. Wo need good

four or flvu newspapers in the county.
There Is still room for u good lively paper

The seasons are seasonable , the winters
short and mild , the summers pleasant and

stagnation , nor malaria.
Building material , such as stone , briok aud
sand are plentiful ; native lumber sawed out
of pine , which grows In" abundance on the
Niobrara river , is cut and sold on the market
at SurlnRviow from § 12 to $10 per thousand

Good tillable farm lands can bo bought at

at a higher figure , but considering the
quality of soil and the general advantages
of good markets , they are cheaper than in
most parts of thustuto.
Away back Iu the 70s the crops ouo

Six hundred years of sclf-povornmontt
That Iu brief measures the life of the old
est living republic of the world Switzer
Today , August I , Is reckoned the anniver
sary of the Indopundenca peacefully achieved
Iu i-JUt.
A century and a halt before Columbus was
bom the republic of Switzerland was , and It
shod iti feeble light over the old world -ISI
years before the American Declaration of
Independence sent tidings of great Joy to
men and filled tyrants with dismay.
The parents of the Swiss republic were
Walter Furst YOU Atttnghiiusen , Werner
Staufochor IUK' ' Arnold Von Molchthal.
Standing together on the Hutil , writes
Tracey L. Ujbinson In the Now York He-
cordor- they swore a solemn oath to save
their country from rulers ns shameless as
they were cruel.
Six hundred years have pawed away and
the llttlo republic stands frco amid her snow-
clad mountains , iu the very midst of inon-
urcmes which havn seldom boon for long at
p-saco with each other free , self-governing ,
self-respecting and oy all respected , wealthy , and honored above all nations ; for
Switzerland moro than once boon called
upon to arbitrate ( as In our own Alabama
case ) between angry nations and has never
failed to accept the by no means grateful
Although the story of Switzerland's push
for freedom has been told over and over
again , It Is so good a story , and In to many
respects rosumblos our own , that at this
Important epoch In her history it may well
bear a brief reiteration. The three
cantons of Uulerwalden ( divided Into
two unequal sections by the Kornswald ,
and now known as Obmildcu and
Nidwalden , or nbovo and below the wood ) ,
Sohwytzmid Uri were thu centers of the revolution
elution which gave Switzerland her freedom.
Linked together by a lake of exquisite beauty
l ho Viorwaldstattonsee , the Forest Cantons
term together n singularly picturesque stretch
of country. Velvety slopes , groou meadows ,
clusters of nut trees , broad terraces and red
and sunburnt cottages linu the Valleys , while
above lowering mountains and inaccessible
rocki hem in portions of the laxe and give an
Imposing and magnificent variety to what is
justly acknowledged as the most beautiful
scenery in the old world. Tre inhabitants
are of true Alpine mold. Sinewy , robust ,
quick and snrowd , as well as self-reliant , fear
less and full of dauntless courage and perse
verance. Withal they nro simple iu their hab
its , pious and strongly conservative , the poo-
Elo of each canton possessing characteristics
orn in them which are sufficiently strong to
produce marked differences botwosn them.
This is shown iu a remarkable degree to this
day in their fashions in dr.ns. From neoplo
such as those arose thu three famed Kldgonos-
bon , Walthor Furat , Werner Staufachor and
Arnold von Molchthal. „
-Todav is not the time to question the truth
of the story of William Tell. Truth or fable ,
it is a gloriously conceived Idea and worthy
of the fame which history , song and story
has given it. Hero is the tradition : King
Albrecht , * on ot Kudolph von Habsburtr
( Hawk's Mountain ) , greatly oppressed the
three Forest Cantons In the endeavor to reduce -
duce tno people to bondaco. Ho gave bis
stowarts and lieutenant-governors strict or-
.dors to keep thorn well in check , and as a
result they were taxed , flned.imprisonod and
otherwise ill-used in n most tyrannical man
ner. Gossler of Schwytz , was ono ot the
worst. How ho stuck his hat on a polo in
the market place of Altorf in Uri , and com
manded that nil passers by should do it reverence -
orenco ; how Toil passed by and failed to
raise his hat ; how ho was seized and as pun
ishment was ordered to shoot nn apple from
the head of his son ; how ho kept a second
arrow under his coat with the intention of
shooting Gossler if ho had failed ; how Goss
ler had him seized , chained and rowed with
him to Axcnstoiu ; was caught in a storm
from which Tell extricated thorn , and after
ward did shoot Gesslcr in the Kusnach "hol
low way" havu wo not all road and ap
plauded a thousand timosf True or not
true , the story illustrates a period during
which a high spirited people were establish
ing a confederation , and maintaining it
against a powerful ouomy ; it illustrates n
long effort to secure emancipation from
Habsburg tyrauuy ; it illustrates an epoch
which opened with thn acquisition of tbo
charter of liberties of Uri and closed with
the brilliant victory over the Austrlaus at
Mogartun in l.'lin.
Thnueathof Kudolf of Habiburs In 12111
was the real signal for the outburst of patri
otism which led to the llnnl declaration. The
men of Schwytz undoubtedly took the load ,
but all , dreading now dangers from the now
govornor.i. had to move with the utmost cau
tion. Within two wncks of the death of Hu-
dolf , Uri , Schwytz and Unterwaldeu had en
tered into the Ewlgor Bund.or perpetual alli
ance , which was probably the renewal of
some previous paoi. It Is also probable that
tucy melon thu Uutll to swear fealty to this al
liance , and hence ills Uiattliocelebrants datu
their independence from that tlmo. At any
rate it is certain that the various acts of the
agreement were then drawn up in Latin the
MagnaChartaof the Eidgonosscnschatt-aml
thu'uocumcnt Is treasured up to this day in
bchwytz , and is hold in the deepest venera
tion by iho whole Swiss nation. Ainouir ils
enactments it enjoins that overv OHO shall
obey aud servo his master according to his
standing ; that no Judge shall be appointed
who has bdughl his olllco with gold , nor un
less bo bo a native ; that if quarrels shall
arise between the Kidgenosson , the moro scu-
siulo shall settle the difference , and if ono
pa-t.v does not submit , the opposition shall
dculdo thc > matter.
Tlo : freedom of the country was finally
reached at thu famous battle of Morgarton.
The antagonism of the Forest Cantons to
Frederick of Austria , who succeeded
Albrecht , HO enraged thai monarch lhat ho
determined to wlpo out the recalcitrant
Waldincn. Ho deputed his brother , Duke
Loopoid , to do the business. That doughty
warrior , superciliously regarding the moun
taineers as moro pcas'aiits , took hardly any
precautions agulnslburpris ? , marched with a
hastily gathered army which closely re
sembled a hunting party ( they actually car
ried with them a supply of ropes with which
to fasten the cattle they expected to seize )
rlghl Into the mountain fastnesses of the foo.
Very soon they became hemmed t i by lake
and mountain nn thu stoop and frozen slope *
of Morgarten , when without a warning cry
of any kind Ihoro came down from the pre
cipices on every side upon the densely massed
horsemen , hugo boulders , Jagccd uleilj.s of
rock and trunks of trees. They hud been
hurled down by a handful of men posted on
the mountain ridge , and dlro confusion fol
lowed the unoxpoclod onslaught. Almo.U
immediately upon thin uvalaucho , before
Leopold had llmo to recover , a band of
mountaineers and hlllsidurs rushed down
the hill upon thu terrified uud bewildered
Austrians and mowed down all before them
with their terrlblo halberds. The rout was
decisive. The number of the killed bus never
been computed , but iho victory of Mqrgartou ,
which lias oftcu been called thu Swiss
Tbnruioplu ! , continued the national spirit ot
resistance to tbo Habsburg rule , and de
termined the work which thu three original
ICldgonosson had bcftuu.
