J ; A Boost for Wib&.ux. Several of our wealthy ranch men who have been spending the winter in California returned to Wibaux the first of the week. They all report exceedingly pleas ant visits throughout their jour neys, but speak volumes for their native home. Among them were Mr. and Mrs. A1 Davis, who arrived on number 2 Monday evening from Los An geles, Cal. They also visited in Florida and Pennsylvania during their absence. In speaking of his favorite country Mr. Davis says that the many different places where he visited are all right when it comes to enjoying a visit, but, that when it comes to "rounding-up" the coin of the realm, there is no place like Wi baux and Dawson county. Messrs. Cannon and Chappell returned on the same train with Mr. and Mrs. Davis, from an all winter's trip, visiting at different points along the Pacific coast. After a brief interview with these gentlemen we are impressed with the fact that their views are the same regarding the fi nancial possibilities of Wibaux, and vicinity, as those expressed by Mr. Davis, and that this ap plies not only to the man with capital to invest, but also to the man who depends upon the labor of his own hands for a livelihood. Bishop-Meacham. Allie Meacham and Miss Chloev Bishop went to Glendive on No. 3 Tuesday evening, where they were united in the holy bonds of matrimony, Miss Bishop, whose former home was at Loyal, Wis., has been visiting her sister, Mrs. E. F. Hutchins, near this place for the past several months, during which time she has made many friends in Wibaux and vicinity. The groom, who was formerly of the same place, came to Wi i baux about a year ago and filed j on a-homestead a few miles south east of town. He is well and fa vorably known to a number of people in and near this place. The bridal couple remained in Glendive Tuesday night, passing through here the following morn ing enroute to Conde, S. D.. where they will visit with rela tives of the groom. Before their return they expect to have house hold goods shipped to Wibaux,! and will immediately take up their residence upon Mr. Meacham's homestead. The Pdineer joins their many friends in extending congratula tions and best wishes. School Notes. Ky JOE DUPONT AMI WILLE RUCKER.

Gertenson disposed of his entire stock of general merchandise, building and business to E. E. Jordan and Albert Pickering, who have formed a partnership to be known as Jordan-Pickering Co. The new firm are selling out the entire stock, of old goods, and when all is disposed of they ex pect to put in a new line of hard ware, undertaking goods and farm implements. Messr. Jordan and Pickering are both hustling young men, who are well and favorably known in this vicinity, Mr. Jordan having served as postmaster as well as U. S. commissioner for the past several years, and Mr. Pickering has filled a position as clerk in the Mercantile Co.'s store for some time. It is unnecessary to say that the new firm will enjoy a good business, and the Pioneer wishes them success. Mr. Gertenson, the retiring party, has been successfully en gaged in the mercantile business at this place for the past three years and had a nice trade estab lished, but on account of poor health \vas compelled to retire from active business. Wool Outlook for 1908. Bradstreet, reporting on the outlook for wool the coming- sea son, has the following to say: "Mills are buying for current needs only, and in small lots. There is very little interest being displayed in the new clip, and it is probable that, more wools v. ill be consigned than for several years, as the growers will be un willing to accept the low bids that will be made. "Foreign wools are very quiet in the Boston markets. The Lon don sales closed with less than 6.000 bales sold for America. The situation in Arizona remains un changed, the growers being un willing to accept the bids of the buyers. A few sales are being made at 14 and 15 cents but the bulk of the wool is being con signed." Annua! Slock Report. W. G. Pruitt, secretary of the State Board of Stock Corn mis sioners, has filed his annual report) with the governor. He says, in part, that the number of cattle shipped out of the state for the year of 1907 numbered 214,012 of which 203,827 went to eastern markets, the balance, 10,815, were shipped to western markets. 00,000 are estimated for home consumption. The number of horses shipped from the state aggregated 26,000 head, which is an increased of 3.000 over the exports for the preceding year. Cattle values have remained normal and very few have been put on the range during the past season.
