Among the improvements made in
North Platte last year which perhaps
has escaped the notice of the indifferent
or careless observer was the erection by
the Standard Oil Co. of two large storaee
reservoirs of a capacity of 22,000 gallons
each for the reception of oil and gasoline.
They are substantial in construction and
economical for the company. North
Platte labor built the sub-structure and
by their erection quite a nnmber of the
dollars of our daddies were put in circu
lation in this city which otherwise would
not probably have been expended. In
addition to these storage tasks the com
pany has put in a specially constructed
tank-wagon for use in ita wholesale
trade. These facilities for handling its
trade should be appreciated bv mer
chants purchasing from this company
By their use leakage and evaporation-
wnicn are oorne oy me retailer -is re
duced to a minimum. Heretofore nier
chants when purchasing oil have been
compelled to accept tho amount shown
by the shipping bill as the number of
gallons for which they were required to
pay, although frequently the leakage and
evaporation would amount to ten, or
more, per cent. By buying directly from
the company,as at present managed,thcse
two items of loss are eliminated from
tho business or reduced to a minimum.
With the establishment of a local agency
in our city tho company has afforded
another advantage to our merchants, as
they are enabled to order in just such
quantities as they may desire or their
trade justifies; and they aro not com
pelled to havo considerable capital "tied
up" iu oil awaiting slow returns. The
oil handled in this manner is tho "Per
fection" brand, standing a test of 120 ,
which 1b about twenty degrees higher
than is required by the state. Much
credit to the high standard of tho man
agement of tho business here is due to
the push jfind energy of tho resident
manager, Claude Weingaud. By his in
dustry and activity has ho built up a
business for the company which is
yiolding n neat revenue, and still ho has
not exhausted all his resources for hold
ing and acquiring new trade. In all
rorts and Kinds ot weather his wagons
may ba seen upon our streets supplying
iu a satisfactory manner the wantB of
his numerous patrons.
During his leisure moments this
winter whon he is not much crowded
with other business the editor of the
Gering Courier is building a Hue of
railroad up the North Platte river. Let
us hope that he may succeed iu his
efforts. However the citizens up the
valley must be set right upon oue or two
points in regard to this matter. In tho
first place the Union Pacific is not at
present in shape to undertake tho con
struction of any new lines of road; it will
do extremely well to maintain what it
already has. In somo other quarter then
must we look for a construction com
pany probably the B. & M. or the Mis
souri Pacific would bo tho most available
corporations for the people of tho terri
tory in question named to approach.
Another error is presuming that $100,000
in bonds can be voted in aid of this
enterprise by Lincoln county. The pre
cincts directly affected and North Platte
are willing to assist in every possible
way the-CTternrTselHIt lt''fiftrllol
siblc to get this amount of aid from the
county for a line running in the direction
contemplated. As much of the success
of a line of railroad depends upon its
local trade the proposed route should be
tho most profitable one in western Ne
braska, as all the way to the state line
and over into Wyoming will it go
through a territory that lies under irri
gating ditches, the only sure way of
achieving agricultural success in this
country. In view of tho importance of
the matter and in order to place it well
before the people, it might be well for
our business men -to issue a call for a
public meeting in this city and start the
Van E. McCarty, the popular yoi ng
fireman, was married at Cozad on Tues
day of last week to Miss Lulu Hanna, of
that place. Speaking of tho wedding
tho Cozr.d Tribune sayB: "Tho bride is
one of Cozad's highly respected and
accomplished young ladies, whilo the
groom is an omployeo of tho Union
Pacific, being employed as fireman. Tho
ceremony was performed at six o'clock
p. m. in the presence of relatives and in
vited guests, many being prevented
from attending owing to tho extreme
severity of the weather. At tho con
clusion of the ceremony, after congratu
lations had been extended tho happy
couple, tho party repaired to tho Com
mercial hotel where an excellent dinner
was in waiting. The bride and groom
departed on No. 5 for a wedding tour
covering the cities of Cheyenne. Denver
and Salt Lake City. Upon their return
they will take up their residence at
North Platte." The couple were the

bushels. This seed he sold in this city

or 830.00 per acre to Eay nothing of the
six or seven tyns of hay he put up. A.
W. Goff, another farmer living near Yo
kum, has twelve acres of alfalfa from
which threshed 85 bushels of seed,
which means a return of over ?35.00 per
acre. Still another farmer who culti
