REPUBLICAN CITY NEWS. up with other business, and of course OmCIAL DIRECTORY, WOODRUFF NEWS. TIME CARD E. H. Railway, The election in this precinct passed off very quietly.

E. Whitney, 1. we had to neglect the paper more than we will in the future. The M. E.

church will be dedicat ed at Long Island on Nov. 14th. Elder Lawson will preach Saturday night, Nov. 13th, so his congregation, with himself, can attend the dedica tion on Sunday. We hope a goodly number will attend from this place.

One hundred and twenty-five dol lars has been pledged to build an E. church at this place. Elder Law- son will soon give his entire atten tion to soliciting for the enterprise. We expect to have a church house here before the holidays. The old soldiers, of Woodruff and vicinity are talking of organizing a Post here.

There are a largejnumber here and a Post of at least 40 or 50 members could, we think, be organ ized on short notice." We hope the proper steps will be taken immedi ately and get everything in working order before cold weather. T.E.Calvert, A. C. Campbell, JR. Phelin, Messrs.

Smith and Brown all B. M. officials, stopped at Woodruff for a short time a few days ago. They expressed themselves as very much surprised at the wonderful growth of the town. Mr.

Calvert ordered tbe Gazette sent to him at Lincoln, Neb. We took a walk up'west to our new bridge Sunday after church, (we were at church also,) and we pro nounced it a good one, and while at the bridge Mr. Townsend and Mr. Jones and wife, of Orleans, passed byi It is of great convenience to the people living north of the Prairie Dog. We expect our trade will increase' very fast now.

Needed at Woodruff, and that very bad, is a grain elevator. There is money for any man that will build one. Who will it be? There is as large a territory to drawro as any town west of Hastings, as will be seen by a glance at the map. We also need a harness and shoe maker. No better location could be found in the west.

Come and see and be convinc ed. Corn husking is at hand, and we hope the farmers will embrace the golden opportunity and get their corn all cribbed before winter sets in. Last winter a great deal was left out until the snow came, and the wind having blown a large amount off the stock, it was covered up and could not be gathered till spring and then a very large percent, was spoiled. Don't delay, delays are dangerous. Corn is cheap now, but it may bring a good price in the spring.

R. S. Loomis came into our office this weekend laid down the cash before our astonished eyes. It is like a spring of pure water in a desert when we are racking our brain how to keep the wolf from.the door, to have a friend surprise us that way. Mr.

Loomis always'; pays for his paper and that is the reason he is prospering so fast. He it one of those who believes it takes as much knowledge to farm successfully as it does to do any other business.If you doubt it friend, try it once. The election'of Granite township nassed of quietly Tuesday. There was considerable scratching! town ship ticket. The following were.the ones elected: Township Trustee Robert Doug lass.
