known by residents of this' bailwick,
is the improvements now under way at
Bentley, where the Unicome Brothers
are expending large sums of money pre
paratory to the establishment of an ex
tensive Durham and Hereford cattle
ranch. More than $10,000 in improve
ments are being made through the erec
tion of buildings, which include a
handsome bungalow, barns and other
necessary structures of lesser import
ance. The last issue of the Sheridan
Sun gives some information regarding
what is being done on this Grand
Roude place as follows:
"One barn will be i0x.S0, three
stories, costing $4,000, and tho other
will be 52x150, a plain stock farm
barn costing $1,500. The house will
be a $2000 bungalow. The contract for
the house has not yet been let while
Charles Fuqun and John ITulett were
the successful bidders on the barns.
Both are well-known county contrac
tors, the former with John Parker hav
ing built the Sheridan Public school
building. Work was started on the .'t
story barn and the framework is completed.-
The contract calls for its com
pletion by the fifteenth of next month.
It is to be a huge structure sitting on
the side of n lnountuin protected from
the const winds and overlooking the
Rouge River vnllev of the agency. The
hay loft will hold' 150 tons. The tim
ber in the eountains to the rear of the
site is being slashed. The larger ham

Dallas is on one of its periodical, ab
solute health sprees. There is not a pa
tient iu the Dullns hospital. There is
not even a prospect of one. No one hits
written or 'phoned that he was coming.
There have been no operations the past
day or two. When Mrs. S. M. Wingo, of
Falls City, left Sunday the attendants
felt louesome. They were in charge of a
hostelry without a guest. It's rather
hard on the overhead expense they say,
but, they quickly add as though they
might be accused of perfidy, it speaks
mighty . well for the city aud county.
