The average resident of Nortli
Platte is congratulating himself
that Pennsylvania anthracite coal

ure ol the service, the anthem by

places them in the front rank of the

The Gordon cornet band re
turned Saturday from Omaha where
it participated in the evening
parades and in ever' instance was
given the position of honor. AVith
their elegant uniforms and excellent
music the boys proved the head
center of attraction, and were up
roariously cheered by the crowd
from one end of the line of march
to the other. In fact the band re
ceived nothing less tliau a popular
ovation each time it appeared upon
the streets. The Omaha visit has
made a state reputation for the
Gordon cornet baud, and we opine
that in the future the organization
will be in demand at all state gath
erings. The gentlemanly conduct
and bearing ot the members wbilp
in Omaha won tor them many kind

The Board of Education has
accepted a proposition from Prof.
Garlich to teach music in the public
schools free of charge to the Board.
The Professor will teach one grade
in each ward for one term and then
change to another grade, thus giv
ing instruction to all pupils. This
is certainly very generous on the
part of Prof. Garlichs, and under
his instruction the pupils are sure
to make rapid advancement.
"The next time we go to the
Omaha lair,'' said one of the man
agers of the Lincoln county exhibit,
"we will take a s'ack of rotten pota
toes and $500 and we will be sure
to get first prize." Such an insin
uation is,perhaps a little broad, but

"yellow" deal from the judges who

exhibits 'ii admitted by all who vis
itedtlie fair, and some are inclined
to think that 'the judges were in
fluenced by some "power" or else
they were highly prejudiced against
Lincoln countv because her pro
ducts were raised by irrigation.
Thousands of visitors expressed
the opinion that our county was
entitled to second or third prize, and
yet these judges who probablj- are
not competent" to pass judgment
upon an agricultural display gave
us ninth place. Though the judges
gave Lincoln cdunty a rotten deal,
it is pleasing to know that the dis
play attracted more attention than
any other at the fair, and that much
good is certain to follow the advpr
tising of the irrigated section re
ceived through that medium. The
gentlemen in charge ot our exhibit
were kept busy every minute of the
day answering questions propound
ed by the interested spectators
many of the . latter announcing
their intention of visiting this sec
tion. Though considerable expense
was attached to making the display
the countv will within the next
year be well repaid in the way of
new settlers who are sure to come.
To those who had charge of the ex
hibit the thanks of the people of
this section are due, for they cer
tainly performed their work faith
fully and well.
