A resident of the First ward, during
the snow storm of last Sunday, saw about
fifty robin -red -breasts trying to find pro
tection in the trees and shrubbery near
his residence a sight, our informant
says that carried him back to the scenes
of "his early youth. The coming of these
pets to dwell among us makes settlers
from eastern states think that they are
still in America.
The snow storm of Sunday night and
Monday covered the plains from Omaha
to Cheyenne, the snow fall being five or
six inches on the level, but as the wind
blew at the rate of about forty miles an
hour, it drifted badly, making travel on
country roads quite difficult for several
days. Railroad trains on the Union Pa
cific were more or less behind time, the
passengers being generally pulled by
double headers. It was not cold, the
mercury on Monday morning being 28
above zero.
The play of Rory O'Moore rendered
by the St Patrick's literary society on the
evening of St. Patrick's Day, was a little
too heavy lor the members of the society
to handle with ease. The character of
Rory O'More was well sustained by Frank
Redino nd, his actin and g estures being
good, while'his form is well fitted to the
character. A fault, common to ama
tuers, was speaking in too low a voice.
On the stage the actors should talk to the
man in the back part of the house. The
singing was good, especially the operetta
"We will have to Mortgage the Farm."
The net receipts of the evening were
about $75, which is to be used to repair
the old church , St. Patrick's Hall.
"While taking a trip to North Platte this
week we had a chat with some half-dozen
farmers on the other side of the sand hills
and were agreeably surprised to learn that
even within ten miles of the county seat
they are coming here to do their trading.
They say enough can be saved in the
difference of prices to easily pay for the
thirty mile drive. Selling goods under
North Platte's nose and buying corn from
Hayes Cuntre granaries surely warrants
our boast that the little winged insects
known as flies do not use Wallace as a
roosting place."
The above from the Wallace Herald
sounds very pretty and no doubt tickles
the editor nd a portion of its readers
amazingly, but there is a woeful lacking
of an essential element, truth. While the
editor was taking the trip aforesaid he
whistled to keep up his courage and
spirits, the half dozen interviews being
tne result of his imagination. When the
item was written, the following quotati ons
tell better than words what farmers will
do. In North Platte they could get 30
tn 35 cents for their butter; in Wullana 1S
cents and hard to find buyers at that.
meir eggs Drougnt zu cents per dozen in
North Platte, while in Wallace the sale
was hard at 10 cents. North Platte gave
them 60 cents per bushel i'or potatoes; 10.
bushels supplied the local market in
Wallace. Poultry was worth $4 per
dozen in the Platte; a half dozen birds
glutted the Wallace market. And so
with everything the farmer produces. The
Platte is his market and he knows it.

It has never failed to pay interest on its

goes a, long way with financial men when
a, county, goes into the market for a " loan.
