The pupils of the two Episco
pal Sunday-schools were treated to
a sumptuons turkey dinner at the
guild house last evening, and after
wards Christmas exercises, consist
ing of responsive reading, songs
and recitations were rendered in
the church. At the conclusion of
this latter programme the gifts!
were distributed from a large and
handsomety decorated tree. The
pupils acquitted themselves credi
tably in the exercises, which were
witnessed by a large audience.
Dame Rumor has said for sev
eral weeks past that T. T. Keliher
was about. to embrace matrimony.
Of course Tim has denied the re
port, but it has now broken out
afresh, and the date of the nuptials
is announced as Dec 31st. The
Tribuxe don't know whether there
is any truth in the rumor, but it
does know that Tim -would be hap

pleasant wife and a comfortable

have sooner or later.
The city couneil of Beatrice has
been figuring on the expenses of
an electric light plant and finds
that it can put in a system that
will provide fifty arc lamps and ten
miles of equipment together with
necessary machinery, for a cost of
nine thousand dollars. For six
thousand dollars additional the
system can be enlarged to provide
twelve hundred incandescent lights
of 16 candle power, and it is esti
mated that the latter addition
would furnish sufficient revenue to
pay the running expenses for both

An attempt was made a year or

association, but for some reason
the organization was not perfected.
We learn that another attempt will
be made soon after January 1st.
Wm. Sniallwood received- on
Christmas day a box of roses from

which weighs one and a half pounds.
The latter is on exhibition in

from the members of . the local

North Platte will take on new life.
This is certain to come when the

The Christmas exercises at the
Methodist church Tuesday evening
was very largely attended and the
programme passed off smoothly. A
house 8x8 feet was erected on the
rostrum and from this old Santa
Claus "emerged at the proper time
to distribute his gifts. This proved
a very novel and pleasant feature
of the entertainment. The pro

James Myers and C. I. Hill, of
Antelope precinct, had a "scrap"
the other day, and the "latter had
the former arrested. The case came
up before Judge Ray yesterday
afternoon before a jury, who after
hearing the testimony turned the
defendant loose. The main witness
for Hill was his young son, who
upon cross-examination admitted
that his father suggested the testi
mony he should submit. This
showing of course was a bad one
for the plaintiff.
The formation of a farmers
association, as suggested by W.
W. Lewis in these columns, would
undoubtedly be of benefit to the
farmers of Lincoln county. One
thing that must be guarded against
is politics. The old grange move
ment lost its usefulness when it
entered politics and the same may
be said of the farmers' alliance.
The proposed association, as we
understand it, is for the exchange
of ideas as to the best methods of
farming, and this would certainly
prove beneficial to the lillers of the

has been working with a will for
some time past with that end in
view. There are still some sub
scriptions in arrears, and it is de
sired that these be paid before Jan

siderably in excess of the debt. The

principal part of the latter.

is made. Frequently cases drag in
courts for two, four or six years
and all this time the clerk, sheriff
and others are deprived of the
amounts xlue them.
I. A. Fort of North Platte is ou
with a plan to adopt some such
law as we now have in regard to
irrigation canals, to sugar factor
ies so that the factory would be
long to the real estate that had
been bonded. He bases his argu
ment upon the principle that we
must create some method 111 this
state so that more of the money
earned shall remain here. He
thinks we ought to have in the state
fifty to a hundred sugar factories
in operation; and that what we
want is a law that will enable our
own people to build, own, run, and
manage their own works. Life is
too short for us to wait for the
