Foreman, James Downie; first as
sistant. Chas. Samelson: second

Judge Ray has not performed a
marriage ceremony since Oct. 7tb,
and he is beginning to fear that his
past services in this direction have
not proven that marriage is a suc
cess. It has also been some 'time
since he issued a license.
A country resident, who is well
versed in county affairs, is prepar
ing a series of articles on county
politics which will be published in
these columns weekly after January
1st These articles will throw light
upon subjects ot importance which
heretofore have been kept dark.
The Cody Guard has, along
with other companies of the N. N.

A newspaper will be launched at
Hershey about January 1st and it is
said that Sutherland will also have

not strange that so many new pa
pers arc being established.
The Slayton Jubilee singers
had a large audience last night and
gave an entertainment lasting two
hours. They were very good vocal
ists, but had they sang more of the
old-time southern melodies, and in
fused a little more life "into their
music the audience would, have
been better satisfied. The sinjrinjr
by the male quartette was partic
ularly: good. Nearly every song,
however, was loudly applauded, and
the company responded with en
cores. The proposed sugar beet con
vention at Fremont' seems to be
assuming material shape. The
sugar beet question is one in which
the people of this section should in
terest themselves. If the proper
efforts are made Ave believe that
within the next two years reducing
works can be established at several
points in this county, and that a
refinery which will use the output
of these reduction factories can be
secured for North Platte. If the
farmer on irrigated lands wishes to
attain the best results he must
diversify his crops,, and the addi
tion of the sugar beet to the crops
already raised would prove profit
able. It is therefore to his interest
tha these factories be secured.

Under the head ot "More or
less Less Personal," in the State
Journal yesterday there appeared
the following: "What we want in
our business," said E. F. Seeberger,
superintendent of the North Platte
Land and Water company, "is the
repeal of the herd law in western
Nebraska. That would compel my
people to fence 18,000 acres of land,
but they are ready to do it at any
time. When the day of the irriga
tion farmer will have come every
farmer in the valley can have a
small herd of cattle that can range
on the high lands in the summer
and when fall comes they can be
brought in and kept or fattened on
the feed that will be abundant orily
where irrigation is possible. Even
the 'divide' farmer in the western
half of the state would be benefitted
by a change in the herd law. He
could fence his land at small, ex
pense aud when ever3T other man
did the same he could let his cattle
feed at will on the choicest and best
grass to be found

"The Fast Mail" which appears
at the opera house Monday even
ing next is said to be the most suc
cessful railroad and scenic melo
drama on the road this season.
Mr. L. J. Carter, the author and
manager, has contrived to weave
into a consistent storj- nearly all
the good points of the sensational
drama. The climax ot each act is
strong enough to sustain the whole
rplay, yet so well graded are the
features of the piece that one views
with increasing interest through the
five acts, the murder and the clever
trick with the Grandfather's Clock
in the first act; the Mississippi
fiver steamer, its engine room
showing a practical furnace, and
the explosion with "complete
change of scene behind a curtain of
rising smoke," behind which is the
wreck, as the curtain falls oil the
second act; the "life-size" freight
train, with its realistic engine and
sixteen box-cars, with their famil
iar lettering followed, t the close
of the third act, by "TheFastMail;"
the dago dive of the fourth act and
the thrilling incidents and hair
breadth escapes which take place
there; and then the "full front view
of Niagara Falls, as seen from the
centre of suspension bridge," upon
which the final curtain decends.
