JEds. TntBUXE: Believing that many
off your readers are interested in the de
yelopment of this new county, I send you
a few notes descriptive of the county and
its, people.
unman, urant county, is the present
terminal of the B. & M. roilroad. There
are several business houses including six
saloons, which prove it to be a terrestria
paradise in a small way for the sporting
j fraternity, who are well and ably repre
sented.
. Wild Horse Flats, the home of Moran
i;Bros., is ten miles south of Witman, and
I about the centre of the West Virginia
rcolony, prominent amongst- which are
James Kncaid.Wllliam Thorpe ana Rob.
Moran, the-latttrou1ig gentlemai is
highly accomplished, and a prominent
land locator.
Eighteen miles south of Witman is the
i . . .
residence of Mr. William Proctor. This
; is a veritable type of the New England
country home. The agricultural! products
I compare favorably to those of any section
of the State. There hits been 250 head of
fat steers sold -off the ranch this season,
there are yet over a thousand head of
cattle and horses on the property. The
great sheds, and the large amout of hay,
point significantly to wintering them.
But the pride of the ranch is the Clydes
dale stallion, Black Douglass, and the
large flock of Plj-mouth Rock chickens.
Two miles further south is the well
known firm of Tufford & Chamberlain,
who are doing a fair business The first
ball in Grant county was given- there on!

31111 Camp is abqut 65 miles northwest
of North Platte and the property of the
Circle Cattle Co. It is here that the bull
herd numbering five hundred is winter

in size to those to be seen around a cavalry

manly fellows and reflect credit on their
employers,. George Potter who repre

property, and it is estimated that five
hundred head of wild horses rifam over
the district east of here. Half the num
ber are runaways from Whitewater.
There have been a great' many recaptur
ed during the past year, and eighteen
wild stallions shot. The new barn and
stable are very large, the latter, so as tc
accommodate one hundred horsen; there's
steady employment for a dozen men.
The residence, a two story frame build
mg, whu an me moaern im
provements pertaining to a country
home, and the resident proprietor, whose
mission is to do good, is a splendid type
of the manhood of Ohio, thirty years of
age, and for the benelit of the numerous
young ladies of the Platte I will only in
timate that he is unmarried. This
scribe predicts that so good a fellow as
Capt. R. E. Haskell will not auyway he
should not remain a batchelor another
twelve month.
Cottonwood Ranch is the property of
two promising youug gentlemen, Thos.
and Douglas Brown. There are four
hundred horned cattle, besides the nec
essary number of horses and other ani
mals. They were formerly from Iowa,
but resided a number of years near
North Platte, where they are well known.
Slight is the difference between a country
hotel and Cottonwood ranch. Hundreds
of weary travellers have partaken of their
hospitalhy, and none ever went away
dissatisfied.
In my next I will try and give ,a more
detailed description of the county and
the many points of interest which are
rapidly developing. Q.
' On Saturday last Louie "Wainbsgau, of
Olax, brought to this city and sold to
Dunn & Quinby three of the largest hogs
marketed here this season. The com
bined weight of the animals was 1,674
pounds, or an average of 553 pounds each.
They were two years old. Mr. Wambsgan
received $4.86 per hundred for them
Telegrams were received here Sunday
from North Platte stating that a tramp
had stolen a pair of six shooters from a
citizen of that burg, and that he was
thought to have secured passage east in
one corner of a box car attached to an
east-bound freight rain. He failed to
show up here. Plum Creek Pioneer.
On Saturday last eight fresh hides were
found close together in Nine JVIile canyon
about five miles from this place, by a
settler living near there. Several parties
heard rapid shooting just at dark the
night, before, but as there were many
outfits of hunters roaming the country
little was thought of it until the hides
were found. The killing was undoubted
ly the work of hunters as none but ex
perienced hands could have performed
such a large butchery on so small a space
of ground. The hides had been roughly
removed and the meat all carried away.
Such a successful killing sets a dangerous
example before the settlers. Re
member we have a law that governs
killing of range' cattle and no citizen
however rich or however poor can
afford to set himself in antagonism
to that law. Minature Trumpet. .
Grant Enterjyrise.
Theo. Friese, of Randal, while holding
a hog which he was going to butcher, met
with a severe injury. The jerking of the
animal caused him to step in a hole about
six inches deep and he was thrown for
ward, which resulted in the breaking of
his leg in two places between the knee
md foot. Dr. Markley, was called and
set the leg in proper shape. It is hoped
that the" iniurv will not be nermnnpnt
Mr. Friese has the sympathy of his many
friends in his misfortune. Kimball
Observer.
A well two miles north of Colton caved
in Wednesday, burying' D. R. Mann, who
was at the bottom workinsr at tha tim
he well had been condemned as unsafe
md Mr. Mann was taking out the curb
ing, working from the bottom up when
the caving occurred. His body has not
yet beep recovered. The head and one
arm are above ground, but are held fast
by some of the curbing timbers. A-new
curbing is being put in as no one will go
'down into.' the well nbwn Coroner Cotter
wasaJtColtoa yetaday -bat as the . death-
was pureiy accioeniai ana no one to
blame, except perhaps Mann himself for
workiug in so dangerous a place, the cor

The state veterinary surgeon of Lincoln.
Neb., visited the ranch of W. H. Miles
last -week to examine a valuable black
mare that had a discharge at the nostrils
resembling glanders. After making a
thorough examination the surgeon,
though not pronouncing it glanders, ad
vised that the mare be killed to avoid the
possibility of further spreading the
disease. This advice was concurred in by
Mr. Miles, and the mare was killed, for
the loss of which Mr. Miles will receive
compensation fromthe state Before
many days a permanent dam will be
placed in the Medicine at the point
where the old one "was located, and the.
lake will again be flooded. The proposed
new dam will be built of masonry and
heavy timbers, and so constructed that
the stream can be turned into the lake or
its natural channel as may be desired. It
is the intention of the company to fill the
lake in time to procure a crop of ice
sufficient to supply the needs of this
entire branch next summer. Curtis
Record.
The many and sincere friends of Mr.
M. H. Clifford are pained to learn of his
misfortune in Colorado the past summer.
He took a sub-contract under Kilpatrick
Brothers to work on the grade of the ex
tension of the B. & M railroad. Bv
some means he permitted himself to be
duped and beaten, and lost so heavily that
he has been deprived of all his means.
Mr. Clifford is one of the most honest,
honorable and confidential men that ever
existed, and regards every one with whom'
he com'es in business contact as cut after
the same pattern. The" result has been
what might be reasonably expected when
human nature is considered in all its
phases. Mrs. Clifford has gone to Dako
ta and will make her home among the
Indians on the Pine Ridge reservation.
After settling up his business affairs Mr.
Clifford will join his wife and tak6 up his
residence there. All our citizens will
sincerely regret his departure from among
us and wish nun God speed. Mrs Clif
ford it will be remembered, is a Sioux
Indian. Stockville Faber.
A site has finally been purchased in
New York for a great Episcopal Cathe
dral. The price paid for the lot is $850,
000. It cover? 172 city lots, has a front
age of 772 feet on Morningside Park and
runs back to Tenth Avenue. N,ot far

The treasury of Montana has been
nearly depleted, owing to-the fact that
the legislature last winter offered a
bounty of tea cents for prairie dogs and
five cents for 'ground squirrels. The peo
pie accepted the proposition and deliver -
'eivto the authorities the scalps of 698,671
rs-atj-
ground squirrels and 157,709 prairie dogs.
-A
great for the financial resources of the
territory, and the governor was compelled
to call an extra session of the legislature
to repeal the law and escape the. tornado
of dog scalps.
Corporations are not all soulless, as the
following will show: "Ia Beatrice, about
year and a half ago, a Union Pacii c
railroad fireman was knocked front his
engine by the breaking of the pipe chain
of the water tank. The poor fellow
suffered paralysis of the lower limbs
from the blow, from which he has never
recovered. One day Inst week he was
visited by one of the company's officials
and paid $5,000 in cssh, and receipts
showing all expenses such as doctor's
bills, nursing, etc, paid besides.

Before he assumed the presidency Mr.
Cleveland made the solemn announce
ment to the country that he had discover
ed the presidential office to be "essentially
,executive ." And yet last year, acting
nnder the advice of Vilas, he refused to
execute the will of congress' in regard to
sending American mails by American
vessels; and in this fisheries matter he has
cooly refused to pay the slightest heed to
the twice expressed determination of con
gress in favor of retaliation, but instead
has assumed the right to do the very
thing which congress never contemplated
and would have revolted against had it
been suggested L e.,to attempt to come
to terms with Canada right in the midst of
her most bullying and insolent outrages
upon our flag and fishermen. New Haven ,

A very general popular demand is ex

unite in their praises now. A pocketful
of them 'is worth a dozen pocketfuls of
silver and makes one feel a dozen times
happier. If one wants to send fifty cents
by mail he can't do it, or has to put up
fifty cents for postage, with no likelihood
of the money reaching its destination. A
hole works into the envelope and the
mail agents word into the hole." Shlu-
plasters are the thing and we v must Have
them. Silver is too ancient and too
heavy. Stockville Faber.
JamesParton, the illustrious literary
mugwump, in discussing one phase of the
civil service reform question in the cur
rent number of the Forum, concludes
that the democratic party must first take
out ef politics forever the one hundred
and fifty thousand little offices which now
pervert bewpder and degrade politics.
Then Mr. irarton makes the somewhat
startling observation that inasmuch as it
was the democratic party which brought
upon us this system, so childish and
cruel, it fairly belongs to that party to'
deliver us from it. The gentleman by
the name of Part on possesses a nature
that is both childlike and bland. When
the cess pool of politics begins to purify
itself, the democratic party may be ex
pected to purge itself of itsgrossoess: but
not until then. Take the offices oat of
politics and the democratic party would
have no excuse for farther existence.
