Kimball, County seat of Kimball Co., is the only town of any size in the county. Population is about 500, no accurate census having been taken for a number of years. New business houses and residences are going up rapidly. We draw trade from a radius of 35 miles. The nearest towns of any size are Sidney, 35 miles east and Cheyenne, 67 miles west. Its' history dates from the building of the U.P. road when it was called Antelopeville.

The business houses are: P. SCHWENK & CO., real estate firm, in charge is Dr. P. SCHWENK. J. S. BRADY, general merchant, is an old timer here. He has been in business the past three years. The Kimball Land Co. has S. B. HANNA and F. E. READER as resident managers. B. K. BUSBEE has served the county three terms as superintendent of schools. H. MARSHALL, proprietor of the New Central Hotel; F. M. WOOLDRIGE has been here since 1886 and in business about 14 years. He is a licensed embalmer and coroner of the county, and has a furniture store. He was County Clerk four years.

Mrs. F. M. WOOLDRIDGE has a millinery business at the store of her husband. Isaac ROUSH has been postmaster nine years. He also carries a nice line of stationery, post cards, cigars, tobacco and notions. Miss Olive BOGLER is his deputy, Godfrey PEARSON, barber, has a fine bath room, and as a side, makes photographs.

Officers at the Bank of Kimball are: A. C. FONDA, cashier; J. J. KINNEY, President; H. A. CLARK has considerable interest. Their last report showed $115,000 on deposit.

Dr. P. C. MOCKETT came to Kimball some five years ago. BEYERS and STRAHAM own the restaurant. Kimball Meat Market is owned by E. M. PROUTY and F. R. MORGAN. WALER & FORSLING, both oldtimes in Kimball have a real estate business. Kimball Drug Co. is owned by F. R. MORGAN and E. PROUTY. Will J. DAVIES has arrived from Brownsville, NE and plans a general merchandise store in the SCHAEFER building. The store will be opened Aug. 10. Mr. DAVIES has a wife and two children.

L. E. SCHAEFER goes out of business this week, he has been in business twenty-two years. The family will probably go to St. Louis. He has interest in mines at Goldfield which will take his time for awhile.

C. A. FORSLING has the livery barn. P. MAGINNIS has a blacksmith shop. He has also put a solderless steel flume for irrigating on the market, and has a factory here for its' manufacture. He also

“Western Nebraska Observer" (continued)

carries a line of buggies, wagons, farm implements, stoves and heavy hardware. Mr. MAGINNIS has lived here since 1885, has been County Treasurer four years and sheriff for four years.

The CUNNINGHAM Realty Co. with F. H. CUNNINGHAM, President, has been here but a few months. F. M. WHITMAN presides over the WHITMAN House a popular hotel. The livery stable is owned by L. H. LILLY. He also runs the stage from Kimball to Harrisburg. Gus LINN a hardware man also carries implements, buggies, wagons and feed. He is County Commissioner and has been treasurer. C. E. STEUTEVILLE is manager of the FOSTER Lumber Co., P. NELSON, coal man, H. A. PHELPS runs the dray and express wagon. George HOLTON runs the dray in the winter and farms in the summer. Wm. J. BALLARD, attorney-at-law, recently came here from Lincoln. Dr. G. E. DARROW recently came from Omaha and established a hospital, Dr. H. H. DULLARD has also arrived recently.

There is also a Kimball Grain Co. Others identified with building Kimball are: L. W. BICKEL, for many years owner of the bank of Kimball, now retired, J. LEMING, John EWBANK, Thos. WILKINSON and others.

The one regularly graded school is located at Kimball. This school has eleven grades and employes five teachers. A few schools have small libraries, text books are furnished free to every child. Almost four hundred books in the County and teacher's libraries are free to all students and teachers. There is a demand for experienced teachers. The average salary is better than in any other county. No district is looking to less than seven months of school this year and over one-third will have eight or nine months. Bonded indebtedness is scarcely worth mentioning.

The pretty hamlet of Dix lies ten miles east of Kimball and consists of a depot section house and store. The store is owned by C. H. CHALLBURG, an early settler. Mr. CHALLBURG has a general merchandise business and also buys grain.

Others living near Dix are John CLAUSEN, who deals in land and has a ranch near by. He tells us his corn is extra good, and if nothing happens will make 40 bushels. He has 50 acres of wheat, 15 acres of rye, 12 of barley and 30 of corn. Mr. CLAUSEN came in 1884 and says every year except 1893 and 1894 have been favorable for crop raising. A gasoline engine with a gang plow and other attachments was purchased by John CLAUSEN, H. L. CHALLBURG, A. BURG and A. O. NELSON last spring. They have had all the work it could do this season.
