Jones & Verity are still buying claims st Sioux county, but only have to invest. Tarties having claims to sell houkl see them at once, Mr. Elvis Edwards, foreman of the M C ranch, west of Gordon, was in Sioux last week visiting his brother and other relatives. He returned home Friday. The Commissioners would do well to discard the lesral advice furnished by the county and subscribe for the Jouhnal. It would bo more reliable and les cost- iy . The Commercial Bank has teen moved into the corner recently vacated by the nost odiee. This is a fine room for the business. S. W. Cox is the gentlemanly cashier during court week. Now Mr. Herald do you think the stat utes of Nebraska, Judge Kidkaid, or the County Commissioners were wrong? $285.05 was too small an amount to make a fuss about wasn't it Charley? Mr. John Gibson, of Bodarc, called last week and subscribed for the Journal John is a rustler and had 25 acres of corn already planted besides a large crop of small garin. "That's what knocks." A seven years old boy of C. L. Tubbs was taken sick of sore throat. Another child is now ill. We hope they will soon recover. Later: Both of the children are re ported much better this morning. Mrs. G. W. Hester was summoned, bv teleirram last Tuesday, to attend the funeral of her father near Des Moines, Iowa. She left on Saturday's train and would reach her destination early on Monday. Her father was quite old and his death had been almost daily expected for several months. . A decision by the Nebraska supreme court declares that a mortgage given on a growing crop won't hold after the crop is gathered. If the farmers of Nebraska will unanimously proceed to mortgage their growing crops for all they can get and refuse to pay, they will have the fun of seeing some toll harvesting and corn-gathering by the chattel mortgage (lends. Temperance Advocate. It is understood that the Republicanf?) County Central Committee held a secret meetinir in Harrison yesterday. It is something new in Republican political tactics (or at least it would be in any other county except Sioux) to make a secret call for a committee meeting. We wonder why the call was not pub lished in the Herald as it claims to be the party organ in Sioux county. Iron pipe connections have been made from the main water pie to nearly all the cisterns along the line and now all the work necessary to (ill the cisterns with water is to oten the vent and "let 'er slide," whenever the pump is work ing.

James wins Itiotli !ets. John was rash and brash. Tlie United states extends nearly half vjay around tlie globe, and when the ev ening sun is setting on the westernmost Alaskan island the next morning s sun njay be an hour high in Maine. It is the only country in the world except Russia, of which this can properly be said. The little islands and petty dependencies of Great Britain are scattered over the world and the sun may be said never to set on the British Empire, but only in a measly sort of a way. Ex. Bert Dew, of Jim creek, is something of a sportsman and while out surveying the bluffs just above his house last Fri day he espied a fine buck deer. By care ful manouvering he succeeded in placing himself within easy range and also in dropping the buck by a well directed ball from ins 4:i Winchester. lhe ani mal rolled down a slight cliff of rock and lodired in the upturned roots of ai old tree. Bert cautiously approached the spot w here the deer had fallen and was astonished to hear a noise issuing from the retrion where the deer lay that sounded much like that usually made by a mad cat, and quietly peeping over the fallen tree he espied a large wild cat. This he dispatched at first shot and then found a nest containing two young cats only a few days old. Bert intends to tame the "kitties" but we doubt not he will change his mind. Tuesday morning Wm. Corcoran rode to Harrison, being a witness for Mr. Greger whose hearing for final proof was held that day, and to let the pony graze turned it loose just north of town leav ing the saddle on and removing the bri dle and tying it to the saddle. After searching sometime for the pony in the evening and measuring off the prairie by foot steps for several miles around Har rison, lie returned to town and was in formed that the property he was search ing for was in Judge Hunter's stable. He repaired to the stable and proceeded to resaddle the animal and take it away. Hunter appeared at this time and asked for $2. damages as he had had the horse over 24 hours and was entitled to pay. Corcoran could not understand how the pony he had ridden to town the same morning could have been in Hunter's bands for 24 hours and told him so, but still Hunter refused to give up the pony even after it had been ideotilled by sev eral of Corcoran's friends who had ac companied him to town that morning. A replevin was sworn out by Corcoran and Sheriff Pfost took possession of the pony and the next morning Hunter crawfished and had the pony returned to its owner. Corcoran and his friends were delayed over night by this manouv er of Hunter, besides other inconven iences. We understand the Judge's ex cuse is that lie was drunk, but we are slow to lielieve this for the reason that were that so, and it ell'ected him alike each time, he would proljably have han dled more horses within the few short years of his life thai) miy other person ou e.ij f Jj. District Court Xotes. It is not necessary to say that those libel cases brought by Satterlee were dismissed. Attorneys Fisher and Sayrs of Chadron came on Tuesday's train and were in time to observe the court adjourn. "I don't see it that way." M. P. KlNKAID. Tueiy afternoon's rain wet down many who were going home from court. Dore was heard to remark, "Judge Kinkaid must think that our county judge don't know a d n thing." It is conceded by all parties tliat M. P. Kinkaid is a model judge. Mrs. Westover came up from Rush ville with her husband and visited with friends here. We regret that the lady experienced such unpleasant weather. The judge found no use for a jury and sent tlie jurors home Monday afternoon. The jurymen were glad to be dismissed in the afternoon of the same day that court set. Owing to the very busy sea son for farmers it was very fortunate. It may not te necessary, but we rise to remark that Satterlee dismissed the libel cases he brought about election time last fall. This is an admission that what was said of tlie all round crook at that time was, and forever is, true. The matter was well settled in the Pfost coal case that a county officer who violates the law and furnishes supplies to the county can not recover pay there for. That's what this paper said all the time. The attorneys from other towns in attendance were Mr. Fanning, Crawford; Messrs Powers, Fisher, Cook, Sayrs and Bartow, Chadron, and Mr. Westover, of Rusbville. Judge Kinkaid instructed the jurors to look after and prosecute any parties found cutting timber on school sections. Satterlee had his way in those libel cases for a while; but when the time came for him to meet the accused face to face in the presence of a fair and honorable court, lie wilted and asked tliat his own complaints be dismissed. W. II. Westover is so deeply interested in the Welfare of Sioux county that he iH expressing a fear that George "Walker and It. T. Conley will present large bills against tlie county for their services in the county cases. Don't fret, Westover. The services of tlie above named gentle men were gratefully and gratuitously given for the welfare of the county. What about that $100 fee which was illegaly secured for Westover for his services(?) for Sioux county at last year's term of district court. Wonder if West over expects a f 100 this year from the county for his services in trying to com pel the county to pay accounts of othersJKTTieh the county has no right to PS A test ease was recently made by Mr. Walker by appealing, from the commiss ioners decision in allowing certain ac counts, to the district court. The ac counts appealed were; one for $28.05 pre sented by Judge Hunter as his fees in the civil case of Columbia vs: Scofield, and several allowed to Sheriff Pfost amounting in all to $260.80. A strenu ous effort was made by the attorneys for the defence, E. D. Satterlee, W. H. Westover and Judge Cook, to have the cases continued, dismissed or thrown out of court, and in every other way known to the craft, but were finally compelled to come to a trial of the cases before Judge Kinkaid. Judge Hunter crawfished on his part of the program and admitted that he had no right to present the account to the commissioners for payment just what we have been telling him all along. The others were tried and out of the whole $289.45 only $1.00 was allowed and that was to the sheriff for inspect ing Hovey's horses.
