Mr. Brahman has purchased a new self binder and a number of other farming implements. This looks as though he was driving the cart before the horses. In my opinion he should have waited to see how the crop will turn out W. C. Elder took a four day lay-over in North Platte last week and while there added a new wagon to his outfit. The Davis Hotel was opened the other day and a dance given in the evening. There was a large nartv and lots of fun. feslrWaVerr Missr AnnieTTcConaT hay and Mrs. Wm. McConahay of North Platte, visited J. T.Xabille and family this week. , A boy lit his pipe on a load of hay near Elder's place, the hay caught fire and he barely had time to unhitch the horses and save them and himself. The prairie caught fire from the burning hay and it required hard work and a long time to put it out. This should be a les son to our smokers . Wm. McCounaughay, of North Platte, purchased a fine lot of Holstein cattle the other day and has placed them on J. T. Labille's-farm. A dance was held at the residence of George Fourgeson's on the 24th. Quite a large crowd was present and a pleasant time is reported by those attending. J. A. Young has locked horns wtth the B. & M. to recover damages for cat tle and horses killed on the track. Stay with them Mr. Young . J. H. Nance is visiting John Labille. They had not seen each other for twenty years, although Mr. Nance has been liv ing in the neighborhood of Wallace for the past three years. Stuxnek. Brady Island. Dear Eds. After a period of silence we will give you a few items. Osmer Marly, aged thirty years, died with consumption on the first inst. The remains were taken to Iowa by the broth ers of the deceased, Oscar and Forest Marly. For four months the deceased was patient sufferer. 3Ioses Brooks has been quite unwell, but is better and is out attending to his business. IThere is six inches of snow and the young folks are taking the advantage of it in the way of- sleigh riding. Our literary has had a vacation of three weeks. It will open again Saturday next. There has been some plowing and tree setting done during the past warm weather Ed. Murphy has been to Cheyenne for the past week selling hay. Wm . Beatty sold twenty five fat steers for upwards of fifty-one dollars each. He thinks he done well by feeding. We have two schools in our district both of which are doing finely. We notice, a sulky plow standing at the residence of one of our good neighbors. We think he means to raise something, or at least try to raise something, the coming season. We have as good soil here for cern as can be found in this or any other state. There was corn planted here the 5th day of last June which made good solid corn and went twenty -eight bushels to the. acre There are hundreds of acres of vacant land lying in the hills and many a home steader could secure a good, farm. Parties hunting homesteads will pass Lincoln county and go from one to two hundred miles further west to find land when by spending a little time they could find good homesteads among the hills of Lincoln county as can be found further west. March oth, 1888. Snr. WALLACE. Sowing wheat is the principal occupa tion of the farmers at this writing. The literary contest between the Pleas ant Valley and Blue Ribbon societies was a very pleasant affair. The Blue Ribbons got downed. A Mr. Brainard, a brother of Mr. E. A. Brainard, is visiting here at pre? ent. We believe he intends going out to Colorado in a few days to visit with his uncle. John Nation, a brother to J. W., ar rived here last Thursday and now has his blacksmith and wagon shop running in full blast. Mr. Inghram, who has been running a dray here during the winter, is moving back to his farm in Hayes county. "Agricola," a correspondent from this place to the Lincoln Co. Tribune, writes to that sheet as follows: "I noticed in last week's Herald a call for an attorney to locate here. An at torney would do well here but a lumber yard would do better. We are not so particular about the yard so we get the lumber, as we have already two yards and no lumber. What our farmers and merchants ought to do is to ship their own lumber, as one of our merchants did, and we glory in his spunk. Give us a company that can carry a stock of lum ber not a yard." The identity of Agricola being unknown to the Herald we connot say exactly what is gnawing at his vitals . After reading the above we interviewed our lumber yard managers and elicited the fact that credit is not now being given without se curity: Possibly Agricola may have also found it out. We understand an edition booming North Platte is soon to be is sued from that town and withont a doubt a few correspondences from Wallace of the above stripe will be liberally paid for. The fact is our lumber yards carry as large a stock in season as those at any other town doiag the same amount of business. As very little building is done in the winter it would be folly to carry a large stock. As well might a "restaurateur lay in a stock- of ice cream for winter use or an implement dealer lav in a stock of plows in the fall . People cao come right along to Wallace and be treated as white as " " XTT.n -gri-tj a.141' Nothing; not even any of th lumber which our yards have been carrying in stock this winter, but judging by the way the Herald bristles up one would natur ally suppose that its editor had been fed on lumber this winter, and his digestive organs being of a weak nature have failed to digest all of the knots and there fore be is of the opinion that our yards are well stocked with lumber. We have interviewed the managers several times and find it is no fault of theirs as they have shown us orders which were sent out the early part of December and which have not been filled yet Our merchants carry a full stock of goods; our bankers have the best of facilities which has been proven by the loans they have made, where others have failed to get the money. We know of a number of men who have come here after lumber who had money to pay for the same and who have since gone to North Platte and Paxton after it and as a natural conse quence would do considerable trading at these points which would come here had our lumber yards carried such stock of lumber in proportion to stock of dry goods, groceries, etc., which our mer chants carry. Is it justice to our mer chants and bankers to tolerate such com panies? Answer this ye consumer of knot-holes. The Herald is off again when it says an 'edition booming North Platte is soon to be issued from that town." There is talk of an edition being issued from North Platte booming this county, and should Agricola have any thing to do with it, Wallace and vicinity will have her share of the boom. Again, Agricola is not unknown to the Herald as Agricola made himself known to the Herald editor as well as to three fourths of the business men of the town. Ob, yes, come right along to Wallace and you will be treated white, just as white as you were ever treated in this wide world and you will find as agreeble managers and clerks as ever weighed out a pound of coffee, measured off a yard of calico, sold a load of coal or figured up a bill of lumber.

From the Curtis Record. Frontier county boasts of a citizen who is nearly a centenarian . His name is James Moffat and he lives about five miles south of Curtis. In three yeara. more he will hav completed his one hundredth birthday, and is still able to walk a mile without becoming fatigued. During the active period of his life he was a minister of the gospel. He was born in the year 1791, fifteen years after the United Colonies declared themselves free and independent of Great Britain. During the the eventful course of his life he has witnessed the wars of 1812, the Mexican war and the civil war. He was born in the time when stage coaches were the only means of conveyance, when the steamboat was unknown, and the railroad was a thing unheard of. Since that time he has witnessed the arrival of all these, together with the telegraph, telephone and the innumerable and countless inven tions and improvements in the way of machinery. The thoughts of what this man has seen, leads one to compare the present age with that in which the morn ing of his life was spent, and to cause those who are in the active period of their lives to appreciate more fully the advant ages which the present age of thought and progress affords. Considerable sport was afforded the railroad boys by the awkwardness exhibit ed by the "scab" in charge of the engine Tuesday night The thing was evidently too big for him .to handle easily, as he could not stop it within several feet of where he desired to. When he got to the water tank he stopped too quick, and when he attempted to pull up he ran by, and it was only by the efforts of the fire man that he avoided running the spout from the tank into the top of the first coach. The B. & M. has abandoned the work on the proposed new branch from Cul bertson to Holyoke and is shipping the rails, ties and other supplies intended for its completion along its various lines for repairing purposes. Thus the main prop is knocked out from under Holyoke's anticipated spring boom. On the trial of Darius Brown, last Thursday, for the sale of liquors, on Sun day, the accused was proven guilty and fined $100 and costs of trial. Attorney Starr, of Indianola, appeared for the defense and County Attorney Stewart prosecuted. Other cases against theuame party will be tried at the April term of the district court. It is generally believed that Brown has been selling without government license. If this proves true, it is likely to go very hard with him. Uncle Sam is never very lenient with violators of the revenue laws. Stocttville Faber. - - -m w e. He knnwsnis Dusmess, ana proc ably no one will be so foolhardy as to run against him. The annual horseradish fair near Berlin- ' is a great event. At the recent'fair seven -hundred tons of horseradish weredisposed of, also several hundred thousand kegs of beer. The ceiling of the Albany capital is -so shaky that the speaker is almost afraid to use his gavel lest he should bring down; the house. Experts assert that if the. dome is not s;on taken down it will come down without assistance. Seven Maine schooltnarrhs tired of boarding house life, are planing to erect a cottage for their own use. They have saved a few hundred dollars each, and their building enterprise will be. under taken on the co-operative plan. Near Crawfordsville, Linn county Oregon, a few days ago. Sylvester Coohrac . killed a large cougar while out hunting deer. He saw a deer lying down and was just in the act of shooting it when the cougar jumped out of a tree on the deer. An old man was found dead in his cabin, in Taylor county Georgia. The coroner summoned a jury, who viewed the corpse, built a big lire of pine knots, emptied a jug of whisky, and then rendered the verdict : 'We, the jury, -find the prisoner guilty." A farmer near Dayton, O ., drove some hunters off his land; one of the men saw the farmer in town offerincr dead grey squirrels for sale, had him arrested, and he was fined $33 under the law forbidding the killing of this game between January 1st and June 1st Seven years ago a merchant of Ellsworth, Me., added by mistake a door mat to the purchase which a lady hactmacie. He didn't know anythingibout itTbntsKe did,' and after suffering the constant prickings of conscience for the seven years she sent him the price of the mat A lineman of an electric light company in Springfield, Mass., found in the glass globe of an electric light the body of a small grey squirrel burned to a crisp. It is supposed that the animal had bpen attracted by the brilliant glow to the top of the pule where the light was and had fallen into the globe by accident. Years ago an Arkansas farmer, being unable to give his affianced a rinir, pre sented her with a likely heifer. The calf grew and multiplied until the woman owned quite a little herd of cattle. Re cently her husband's property was attach ed for debt, and she, by testifying to' the above facts, was able to save the cattle from seizure. The Dutch authorities are reported to intend constructing a line of railway in Sumatra for the purpose of utilizing some coal-fields discovered twenty years ago. Tho coal is stated to be superior la quality to the best English coal, and the yield is estimated at 200.000.000 tons . To build the railway will take over six years, and the cost will be about 16,000,000 florins. I0B DYSPEPSIA and liver complaint you have a printed guarantee cn every tottJe o Shiloh's Yitalizer.
