There has been in the last few
days an apparent lull in the exodus
of farmers from western Nebraska.
We have learned that several who
left this county have jumped from
the frying pan into the fire.
It is rumored that trains 5 and
6, which were pulled off the west
end of this division a coupie fof
weeks ago, will be put back. Den

Local politics have not yet
assumed an aggressive shape, but
will probably warm up in the course
of a week or two. If the democrats
put up a local tieket, and this they
will probably do, the tight in this
county will be quite interesting.
As has been the case for sev
eral years past. C. L. Williams is

A. D. Black, manager of the
recent relay race, passed through
on nis wneei Jsaiuraay evening en
route from Denver to "Washington.
His object for making this tour is
to measure the exact distance
covered by the relay riders. He was
accompanied by J. 12. Fairbanks
and R. M. Crabtree, two bicyclists
of note. They left Denver Wednes
day, and had averaged seventy-nine
miles per day.
When time hangs heavih- on
the hands of the average North
Platte citizen, he grasps a
fishing rod and walking four or
five miles along the river bank
squats down in the hot sun for
several hours, at the end of which
time lie starts home with a string
of from one to a half dozen fish.
And in the general acceptance of
the term this is called sport.
Alex. Green, of Somerset, in a
recent letter to The Tribune says:
4I feel that the time has come when
we, as a party that has always
favored laws for the benefit of the
masses, who stood by the country
from 1861 to 1865, and who are
Americans for America in pref
erence to any other nation, should
use our best honorable endeavors
to win in this campaign." Correct

by lack of stone, an order for which

W. M. Hinman, who

The people of Ogalalla, irres-
pectivd Of party affiliation, were
making preparations yesterday to

A petition is being circulated
asking the county clerk to place
the name of James Belton on the

was a populist, he returned the
petition after securing one signa
ture. Mr. Belton filled the office,of
commissioner one term several
Captain Baker, of Philadelphia,
formerly in charge of the McPher
son national cemetery, sends The
Tribune a copy of the Press of
that city which contains a dispatch
to the effect that certain farmers
near North Platte are killing their
horses and feeding the carcasses to
hogs. The Captain wants to know
if this is correct. So far as this
writer knows no such action has
been taken by our farmers, though
it is said that in the central part
of the state horses have been killed
and fed to the hogs.
Ralph, the twelve year old son
of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Holtry, fell
under the wheels of a moving train
at Sutherland last Friday and lost
a foot. He, in company with other
boys, were in the habit of jumping
on moving trains, and it was during-
this pastime that the accident
occurred. Physicians from Cthis
place went up and dressed the
wound. The unfortunate boy was
reported in a critical condition

has befallen their bright son.
Later We learn the boy died at
twelve o'clock last night.
About fifty members of the

they proceeded to erect swings and
prepare croquet and ball grounds,
by which time dinner was in readi
