Carver and found him at work with his men constructing a lateral to con vey water on to portions not watered heretofore. Mr. Carver came from northwest Nebraska nearly two years ago and has since purchased the Chas. Harndon, Frohman and Carri co farms, tho last named being his home placo on which he recently completed a 7 room stone house; also substantial outbuildings and corrals for the proper care and handling of the cattle, horses and mules which he owns in large numbers. There is a fine young orchard and large grove of forest tioes on this place also. His son James owns, and lives on, the farm purchased from W. K Karndon, and stone iuiwodh and car ponters have now in course of con struction for him a stone house 28x80. He has a thrifty, well kept, young orchard on this place. Another son, Charles, ownH what is known as the Brook’s farm, on which since purchasing he has added many improvements. His house is large, roomy and well painted and the farm is well stocked with cattle, horses and young mules. A nice orchard just coming into bearing udds greatly to the value and appear ance of this fine and productive farm. Arthur Carver, a nophow, came in to this section of tho Big Bond coun try from lowa about tho same time as his venerable kinsman, A. Carver, purchasing the Schermorhorn farm. He has planted an extensive orchard and added many other improvements. The place is well stocked with cattle, and we can truthfully say he is a typical western hustler, fair in his dealings and always doing something to advance his own interests and that of the community. All the above farms are seeded largely to alfalfa and winter wheat at this time. J. P. Sloan has 80 acres of land in this celebrated region. Has neat frame dwelling, well painted, and a small orchard started. Alfalfa and wheat are his principal crops. He is n pleasant man to meet and is de serving of the success he has met with. John Rowe, on the tract known as the Dave Rider tree claim, came from northwestern Illinois a year ago and since then has expended several thousand dollars in improve inents on this desireable land. He has built a large stone dwelling house, barns, granaries, tool sheds, etc., and planted fruit and forest trees and shrubbery in profusion. He too is a successful, painstaking farmer. Llewellyn Rowe lives just south of John Rowo and has 100 acres of land in high state of cultivation. His house is one of the largost and costliest stone dwellings of any in Bent county. This farm is well stocked with cattle and hogs and of | course it yields a goodly inoorne A Speedy Recovery! *, /i j | j, ( [1 » } | I : : Depends on three things: A * / V /•/// > , 111 //,• i j Good Physician, n Good Nurse J/JT • '/'?/A l-r 1 m .

Watkins, a congenial farmer on the next farm west, is an old land mark in the progress of this vicinity. Has a large roomy stone dwelling. Several acros are in orchard, consist ing of apple, pear, plum, cherry, etc. and having large quantities of fruit the last two years. He owns 00 head of high grade cattle. A large acre ago is sown to wheat, though his mouey maker is the line alfalfa of which he never fails to cut a large touuge annually. He is thoroughly equipped with a full lino of farm tools and machinery. “Billy” Hodson owns tho SE 30- 21 48. He came from Illinois two years ago and has thoroughly familiarized himself in tho irrigation systom of farming. After making his crop ho enters the threshing orona with a tnn/lom ont.fit whifth ho owns, and does his work to the satis faction of his patrons. His farm is largely seeded to fall wheat, which is now in first class condition. The Stute School of Minos has been rocognizod as tho finest institu tion of its character in tho country and is our one school that stands so preeminent. Governor Orman has, however, for political purposes forced its president to losign and as ho wbh the man who made tho school what it is, thoro is bound to be falling off in its high standing.
