Many of those who purchased what
is known in this county as "Sioux City
stuff" a year or so ago are beginning to
realize the mistake they made. Not
all have failed to make the stuff pay
expenses , but many have. * *
Western Nebraska beats the world !
Stock of all kinds are running at large
on the ranges and doing as well as in
midsummer ; cattle fit for the butcher's
block , that have not been fed u bite of
hay or grain , are being shipped to east
ern markets lor beef. Bassett Eaglo.
We notice in the Congressional Rec
ord of January 11 that Senator Allen
of this state presented in the national
congress a petition from the Live Stock
Institute of South Omaha , remonstra
ting against the enactment of leg
islation abolishing the manufacture of
butterine and kindred products.
The biggest mistake that many cat
tle feeders make is to think their cattle
are fat when they are only half fat. At
the present time the demand cpuld *
readily absorb more thoroughly finished
cattle than are coining , while there is a
surplus of cattle that have not 'been
fed long enough to make them suitable
for first-class trade. '
George Jakos recently purchased
flftx head of Lurierit V. Ma.vin
ney which makes a nice acquisition to
his already well stocked'ranch. . The
entire herd was considered fine sldiT ,
but those bought by Mr. .lakes wore
topped from the bunch. He lately pur
chased the II. L. Merriman ranch
which , with his former property makurf
a ranch to be proud of. Ilyannis Tri
According to telegraphic dispatches
received Saturday , a le.irificv blizzard
swept through the southern part of
New Mexico and territory in that viciiii
ity. Several lives were lost in the
storm , but just how many has not vet
been ascertained. Thousands of head
of stock perished in the storm , and it is
estimated that the loss will amount tenet
not less than $ .11)0,000 ) to stockmen.
A large number of stockmen attended
the stock meeting here Wednesday. It
.vas decided at this meeting to ask
Governor Po3rnter to do what was in
his power at the meeting of the govern
ors of the western , states to be held in
Denver , to have the land left as it is
now , if possible , and if not , to lease it
to the real bona lido settlers in small
tracts for a term of twenty-five years.
The cattlemen on the western ranges
have marketed their stock prettr close
ly in order to have plent } ' of feed for
what they intend to carry through the
winter. This is. wise , for it has reliev
ed the pressure on the feed resources
materially , and one good animal , well
wintered , is worth two that barely get
through alive. Occasional sales of
range cattle are still made , and the
prices received indicate that tin seller's
views are just about as strong as they
were in the fall. Homestead.
The annual quarantine order of the
general government against Texas fe-
issued December 20th , went into
effect January 1st. The order prohibits
mbviug cattle from any part uf the
quarantined territory across the line ,
except pursuant to the regulations. Tne
line of a year ago is but little changed ,
the principal difference being that it
places a part of California north of : i
line drawn east from San FraneLco ,
afiove' the line and out of the quaran
Stockmen who bought wire and fenc
ing material a year ago find the } ' made
a timely purchase. Barbed wire has
advanced lilO per cent in the last year ,
this must'be prosperity for at least the
wire trust. A number of stockmen in
the vicinity of Sidney bought from the
railroad companj * casi off boiler fines at
about one and one-half cents per foot ,
cut them in six foot lengths and punch
ed holes to fasten wire on and are using
them for fence posts. They give good
satisfaction. Alliance Grip.
Ttvo years ago ollicial .statistics
showed that sheep in California , of
which there were 2,377.000 head , were
worth $1 86 each. Now the average
price of sheep in that state is more
than twice that amount , with a pros
pect of further advancement. Though
it is a long haul sheep have been ship
ped from California to Chicago to con
siderable profit. We are getting , a
good many such sheep now , only they
come through the feeders' hands and
do not reach here until several months
and often a year after they have left
their native ranch. Drovers' Journal.
This morning's World-Herald says of
the market : ' 'Stackers and feeders
were in light supply and the market
was fully steady on that kind of cattle.
Buyers seemed to want the few here
and for the most part they cleaned up
evei'3'thtng in good season. A bunch
.that came in late met with ready sale
at what looked like good , stead } ' prices.
Good feeders are in active demand and
the only trouble is that they are so hard
to get , while there seems to be an
abundance of common to medium stuff.
Quite a good many of the warmed up
cattle shipped in for beef are being sold
for feeders and taken back into the
country to be finished.
Tom Dowd is the proud owner of the
finest piece of horse flesh ever shipped
to Gordon or Sheridan county. It is a
blooded Kentucky saddle horse trained
to a number of fancy gaits , and can do
anything from a plain walk to a polka ,
or a caki'xvalk. He purchased the an
imal in the city of Ila. > tings while there
( visiting during I he holid.-iys. and the
price p.nd is n t Jo hi- even gue > .s'ed at.
The Springview Herald hays : "Bro.
Good was surely cut ou for a coi jre.ss-
nmn , and the fusionisls of the Sixth *
district have squa.shed one of their
brightest lighLs. ' ' to which we how
modestly and with a \ becoming
blush assent. The Herald is becoming
so decrepit and has been neglected so
long tluit we hope this slight mention
will make l ro < Skinner think his pa
per is read , once in awhile.
Gordon is an eas } ' town. A few
weeks ago the proprietor of a fake hos-
ipital worked a number of its prominent
citizens to the queen's taste , and last
week a hotel man was bilked out of a
hundred or so by a smooth } oung man
who .represented that he intended
building a $10,000 hostelry and would
lease it to the hotel man. Some day
the people of our sister town will fall
in line with Editor Lyons' paper arid
stick to home industry.
After the war the bonds of the United
States were purchased at an average
price of fifty cents on the dollar. In
1868 the contract was changed so that
payment should be made not in "law
ful money of the United States/ ' but in
"coin , " and now the infamous financial
bill passed recently by the lower house
of congress proposes to change the con
tract again , so that the bonds shall be
payable in "gold. " This is patriotism
with a big "P. "
The U S. Civil Service Commission
announces fiat the annual examina
tions for positions in thy.classified ser
vice will be held nil over the country
in March and April. There were over
& ,000 appointments lust year , andjudg
ing from present indications , there will
be nearly 10,000 this year. Anyone
who wishes may try for a place with
out expense. One can obtain full 'in
formation about the dates , places and
character of the examinations , free , by i

According to republican treasury fig
ures , during the last thirty-eight years
this cou'iftry expuvfp ! two and one-half
billion dollars worth of merchandise
more than they imported , \ \ hich would ,
naturally lead one to think that w ; had j
received that much more coin , but ac
cording to the same report we exported
over a billion more dollars in money
than we imported , making u total of j
three billion dollars exports over im
ports. Arguing from these figures one
would naturally suppose that the people
ple had three billion dollars coming
from foreign countries , but the statis ,
tics show that the balance is the other'
way , this country now owing to foreigners - '
eigners over fourteen billion dollars.
Why is this ? During all but eight of
these 33 years the country has buen
ruled by republicans.
