The ground is in excellent condition and the prairie breaks easier than at any other season of the year. Joe McMichael's foot is improving and Joe will soon be out with the boys once, more. Alexander Green will migrate in a few days to a point near Somerset, and the farm he now occupies will be operated by Joseph Kugler of Iowa.

The school lands of Cheyenne county were offered at public sale at Sidney, on Tuesday ; several sections along the rail road were sold at from $10 to $16 per acre. Mr. Foss, of the firm of Dawes, Foss & Huffman, bought part of a section near Chappell, paying $51 per acre. He is confident of the division of the county and bought on the prospect of Chappell as a county seat. KimbalL Obtcrter. A Romanes. The romance writer on the Advocate is still at it. This time it happened on the tributary to the upper Frenchman. To tell it briefly, Peter Scblegel, an old German farmer, had a daughter, ' buxom, handsome and pleasing to the eye," es pecially attractive to the italic optic of Hans Upperman. The old farmer had serious objections to Hans, but the girl reciprocated to the best of her Teutonic ability. After a row, they "bucked and gaged" the irate paternal sire, and the young couple, with all sails set, headed for Akron. The old man missed the trail and started towards Sterling. An Akron minister pocketed the fee, and again bune. the wheel turns. Julesburg Tri- probablethat before the season is over the terminus, which is now at Onowa, a point on the river some 50 miles above Omaha, will be removed to some point in the western part of- the state, if not in Colorado. There sterns to be but little, reason to doubt that North Platte is the present objective point of the road, which is about equivalent to saying that the road will be built trough Broken Bow, as it lies on a practicable route and in the direct line between Onawa and North Platte. Broken Bow Statesman. Will go In Business. The farmers at Danbury have organized a co-operative society with a capital stock of $1,000 to be used in general business. They have forced the lumber yardat Danbury to keep coal at $5750 per ton-. Rumor has reported that the farmers about Indianola will increase their stock to $50,000 paid up, and put in a coal and lumber yard and also build a large roller mill. G. A. JR. Encampment.

Win be a Great Country. During the past week we were over the new line of the B. & M. to Chyenne. This penetrates what has heretofore been considered the heart of the Great Ameri can Desert, supposed to be utterely value less for anything except grazing. The land between this point and Sterling is unquestionably good and capable of great development. "West of that section the fertility the soil has never been tested to any great extent. The surface is diver sified. The soil that has been cultivated the past year has produced good crops. It is as yet but sparsely settled and land is to be had under all the "entries granted by the government. "Water is obtained at various depths from five to one hundred feet. A stratum of coal has been discov ered and a fairly good quality is found. Building stone is also obtained in many portions, suitable and of a good quality. Madrid News. A New Road for North Platte. The Illinois Central railroad company it alive to the great necessity for pushing their line through Nebraska, and the busy preparation now going on makes it highly Tough on Charley. Some two or three yeara ago Charley Yeamans proved up on his claim in Furnas county, Nebraska, receiving a receipt for the amount of money paid. Now comes notice from "Washington to the effect that the entry has been can celled for want of sufficient residence, and gives him thirty days iu which to go into the land and complete his residence. Charley makes affidavit that he was not off the land except at short intervals, and tben only to earn a livelihood and money to improve the claim. What effect this affidavit will have with the powers that be, remains to be seen. Akron Press. A Victim of Dynamite. A gentleman named Stearns was a passenger on Sunday's noon train going east . He had with him John Delaney , a miner, who had both of his legs blown off, his left arm shattered, and his eye sight ruiued, by an explosion in a mine near Leadville. Both of the unfortunate man's legs had been amputated below the knees, and Mr. S. was taking him to Chicago in hopes that something might be done to restore his eye-sight. Sterling Advocate'. Tb e-Di vision Wanted. The board of county commissioners has been in session several days this week. Not much business of of importance was transacted excepting the purchase of land for a poor farm, the leasing of Mr. Fitch's for a temporary poor farm and the decis ion arrived at by the board to submit to four county division petitions. The eastern third which petitions to be cut off, will be called Dual county. The west third will be divided into three counties, the north county to be called Scotts Bluffs county, the center Banner county and, the south third Kimball county Cheyenne county's lines will be just west of Potter and east of Lodge Pole. This is the division decided on at the Kimball con vention and there is every probability that it will carry. Potter county and Wright county petitions were both denied as they conflicted with the division that has been proposed. Commissioners Davis and Neumann voted in favor of the three county plan, Commissioner Smith oppos ing. The board has acted wisely in this matter by favoring the practical plan and the only one there was any hope of carry ing. It will compel Potter people to make the fight if they have good legal grounds on which to oppose division. Sidney Telegraph . Diseased Horses. As per previous announcement the state veterinary surgeon visited the city yesterday to examine the deceased horses of the county, with a view of killing all that had glanders. There were among the number examined, fourteen head con demned and ordered killed There were some very fine horses that were fat and likely lookins that had to be shot. It is hard-to see horses thus shot down, but the work should be continued until the county is freed of glandered horsas. It entails quite a loss.upon the owners as they only receive about fifty per cent of the value of those condemned. Broken Bow Repub lican Happy Grand Island. The contracts have been signed between citizens of Grand Island and the beet sugar trust. The outlay in this industry will be five hundred thousand dollars. aDd gives to that city one of the most import ant, and in fact leading industries in the United States. It will bring a great increase in population and a vast amount of wealth. We -congratulate her iu her success. The State Fair. The Nebraska State Board of Agri culture are sending out the cards an nouncing the State Fair to be held from September 7th to 14th, 1888, inclusive, the exhibition opening properly on the 6th. A MaU at Last. At last the mail pouches for Wallace are thrown off and received by the rail way service just as though we were as im portant as any other civilized commuuity. Those who have been getting their mail at neighboring cross road offices can now have it directed to Wallace with the The Latest "Wrinkle." The latest "wrinkle in the east is falling in love at first sight. Ye typo of the Star received intelligence from very responsi ble authority that there was a couple fell in love at first sight and were married the next day. What an enlightened people the east is composed of ! The writer of this article is acquainted with the bride but does not know the groom. As it were both parties attended a wedding which took place in the city in which the young lady resides (the victim of the. latest "wrinkle"), and we presumed where they formed acquaintance. The parties in person are a Mr. Martin, of Brooklyn, N. Y., and a Miss PofTenburger, of Sheperdstown, W. Va. The young lady is quite fascinating and accomplished, and is of well-to-do parents. The youug gentleman, we learn, was one of the groomsmen on the day previous to his getting married Matrimonial market is livening up in the east when they begin to get married at first sight. We extend the happy couple both hands of congrat ulation, and may joy and peace ever reign in their midst through their future life. Eustis Star. One thing badly needed in Plum Creek is a good hotel, and, it is possible that before manv months one will be here. An effort is on foot to build a' thrpp-stnrvJ'? bricfe one, and the probabilities are that the scheme will be successfully carried through. A number of our substantial business men have the matter in hand and are using their best endeavors to make it a success. Pioneer. In October 1886, the Union Pacific rail way company contracted with the A. L'. Strang Co., of Omaha, to build a pipe " line from Green River Station to Rock Springs, for the purpose of supplying the camp and coal mines and the town with water. For the past eighteen years a water train has run daily between those two points, and all water used by the town and all mines but one has been supplied with water by train. The average amount hauled from Green River was about one hundred thousand gallons daily and some seasons of the year the water train was not able to s upply all the water needed any some of the mines were un able to work during the short supply A letter received from Vice President Potter, from New York, states that he stood the trip from Chicago to that point very well, and is feeling enconraged at his progress towards health. He has not yet decided as to future movements. When after exhaustive preparation and midnignt oil expense, we write an article bearing on science per se, we dislike to have it garbled by some bureau.
