The Daily Herald.
; WILLIAM BISSELL, Editor.
Wednesday, September 27, 1882.
-Mr. Campbell, of Kirwin, made
the Herald a friendly call Friday
last.
The Stockton News wa3 all Fair
last week, publishing the constitution
and by-laws and premium list. That
is right, keep it before the people Bro
Maynard.
Judge Pratt returned on Thurs-.
day from Norton. Having a light
'docket it, was disposed of in short order.
The Judge reports some good showings
in Norton, in the crop line and things
fairly prosperous.
Come to the Fair! Come from
every where ! ! The managers expect
to have the best Fair ever held in the
Northwest. Each Township in the
county ought to have exhibits, show
what you have done and what can be
done in Phillips county. It will pay
you.
Amos IS well, Trustee of Solomon,
made the Herald a call Saturday.
Mr. E has done a good work in put
ting in the Deer Creek bridge on the
Marvin road. We hope soon to have
as good a one on the road leading west
at J. N. Mcllvain's place.
Rev. E. Goodrich of Freedom
made the Herald a pleasant call
Friday. Mr. G. has charge of the M.
E. circuit in the north part of the
county, is a young minister of much
promise. Although this is his first
year in the work, he is recognized as
among our best ministers.
Andrew Baker, of Norton Co, who
lives on the divide between the head
of Deer Creek and Prairie Dog,
raised this year, over 2,000 bushels of
email grain and 2,000 of corn. Mr.
Baker has lived Norton about three
years and when asked by Judge Pratt
how he managed to raise" so much
more than some others, said "I work
ed for it." More men might achieve
success in the same way.
Mr. Samuel Hebrew, of Bow
Creek, passed through the 'Burg on his
way to the B. & M. R. R., with the
product of his creamery. Mr. H has
shown what can be done by enterprise.
We hope ere long to see this one of
the great butter producing regions,
and being located so near Denver and
the Mountains it can be made to pay
well.
As Gov. St. John will speak at
Phillipsburg, Saturday, Oct. 7th, the
day recommended to hold the township
primaries, we hope the committeeman
from each township will make a call
for an other day as they have already
done in some cases. Kirwin has calL
ed the caucus for Oct. 9, which, prob
ably, is as good time as any. Every
Republican ought to attend the pri
maries, and see that good men are
sent as delegates and, also, every Re
publican ought to hear Gov. St. John.
We give below the names of the
members of the Republican Central
Committe selected at the County con
vention, held October 1st, 1881, for
one year. Sumner, C A Porter;
Greenwood, H G Popejoy ; Plain
view, Chas Bowen; Kirwin, M H
Johnson; Plum, Chas Turner; Bel
mont, S M West ; Valley, I S Smi
ley; Rushville, Chas Collins; Wal
nut, WmGipe; Phillipsburg, G W
Young; Deer Creek, I V Lee; Prai
rie View, Kingrey ; Crystal, J D Mat
teson ; Glenwood, S M Bishop ; Bow
Creek, Sam Hebrew; Logan, Wm
Drumhiller; Freedom, C D Heath
Long Island, J O Dean ; Beaver
J D Smith ; Solomon, H C Edc:e-',

M Osborne ; Dayton, G W . Hays ;
Granite, JasGoode ; Towanda, Frank
Gray.
S. G. Pillsbury, of Long Island,
is working fifty-five acres of sorguhm
of his own raising, besides a large
amount for his heighbors. His ar
rangments for manufaturing are very
complete, on a cheap scale. He gets
from 100 to 150 gallons of syrup to
the acre, which is worth fifty cents
per gallon, thus making from fifty to
seventy-five dollars to the acre. It
costs no more to produce a gallon of
sorguhm than a bushel of wheat and
as it weighs only eleven instead
of sixty pounds it will favor ship
ment much better than wheat. It
seems to us that this branch of indus
try ought to recieve more attention at
the hands of our people. Mr. P uses
the crushed stocks for fuel to boil the
syrup and the seed he finds to be about
equal to corn for stock feed, thus ad
ding another source of profit. We
cannot here describe his machinery
yet it is simple and complete.
