There is to be an irrigation fair
held at North Platte, Neb., some
time this year, and the promoters

thought that Colonel Cody will take
a hand and add no the attractions.
In that case the fair may attract
national attention, and at any rate
it cannot be other than benefial to
the interests of the state. Western

of people assembled at the hospi

selves at the musicale and sociable
of the M. E. church choir. That
each was well pleased goes without
saying. Every number upon the
programme was well rendered, and
was received with salvos of ap
plause; to attempt to particularize
each order might seem like an in
vidious comparison, so these fea
tures of the evening's entertain
ment is best described by saying
that the tout ensemble was well

realized as the net proceeds of the
affair, and each guest regretfully
departed for his home, fully realiz

to say that Sully is so well known

Douglas Circle No. 20, L. of G. A.
R., held on New Year's day, the
ladies were surprised to see the
honorary members come in loaded
with suspicious looking bundles;
but the ladies made them welcome
and proceeded with the regular
routine of business. Past Presi
dent Mrs. Klein installed the offi
cers for the new year with grace and
precision. After the closing cere
mony the past counselor announced
that the ladies had entertained the
honorary members of the circle so
often and bountifully that they
deemed this an .occasion to recipro

were opened and a feast of good
things distributed. A royal good
time followed, lie ladies being
unanimous in their expressions that
such surprises might happen often.

as a social occasion was certainly a
great success. Though the crowd

There were twenty dances on the
programme, most of which were the
newer waltzes, aud much grace,
ease and gallantry were exhibited.
The costunies worn by the ladies
were pretty, and froni the gallery
the scene on the floor was both inr
teresting and pleasing. Music was
furnished by Garlichs' orchestra,
and never did that organization
play better. This is a musical
organization of which North Platte
should feel proud.
The hall was decorated with
Chinese lanterns and bicycles. A
great profusion of the latter were
arranged with taste upon the stage
and a wheel suspended to each
The gentlemen in charge of the
