Lee Grimes Married,
A marriage of much interest 'o
North Platte people occurred at At
lanta, Ga., Saturday, Sept. 2Sth, when
Miss Mabel Drake, ofthatcity, became
tho bride of Lee D. Grimes, a former
North Platte hoy, who for a couple of
years past has been assistant in the
office of a prominent consulting engi
neer in Atlanta. The Atlanta Consti
tution, in speaking of the wedding, re
fers to the bride as an attractive young
lady having just graduated from school,
aridTTniombeVof h well known "Atldntti
family. The paper refers to the groom
!in complimentary terms, and adds "the
young couple has a ho3t of friends to
congratulate them." The North Platte
friends of the young man congratulate
him that ho hes won so fair a southern
Foot Ball Team at Cozad Today.
Tho High school team left for Cozad
this morning and" will she engage team
at that place this afternoon. Ordinarily
this game would be considered anoasy
one for the locals, as Cozad has already
been defeated by Lexington, but our
eleveu is greatly handicaped by the
temporary absence of Russell at quar
ter and Ryan at left half both being
back in studies for this week. Bedell
is also back in work. Day is not in condi
tion and Smith is out for tho year for
not living up to the rules of training,
which exhausts the list of substitute
backs for this game at least. To meet
the emergency Wessberg has been
shifted from full to quarter, Lambert
who hos never played on the team at
half and Gregg a substitute end of last
year's team at lull. The line up for the
first game is discouraging as with the
regulars in the game the prospects for
n team are better than ever before.
If the boya can win today thoro is no
reason to expect defeat later, although
the schedule is very hard.
Games have been scheduled with
Gothenburg, K. M. A., Kearney High,
Sterling and Cheyenne, besides Cozad.
Four of theso games will be on tho
homo grounds, Gothenburg,. K. M. A.,
Sterling, and Cheyenne on Thanksgiving
Fifty cents will bo charged for
Thanksgiving Day game but season
tickets will be sold for the four games
It is hoped that sufficient tickets will
be sold to make the season a financinl
succss as the games scheduled will be
biff enourrh to warrant the support of
the people generally.

Favor New Lighting System.
Tho directors of the Chamber of
Commerce hold n meeting Wednesday
evening and discussed the electrolier
system oj street lighting, bettor train
service, and the irrigation convention
to be held at Bridgeport this month.'
It was'decided to ask tho Union Pacific
to run h' special train to Northport in
order to nccommodate the delegates to
the irrigation convention. It is ox
pectod that thoro will be thirty dele
gates from Lincoln county, and each
county between here and Northport
will solid delegates.
The committees having in charge
better train service, the lighting system,
and the south side irrigation proposi
tion reported progress. These are
matters' that require considerable cor
respondence in order to secure the de
sired information. Tho Union Pacific
has intimated that ndditional train
service can be made to pay ex
penses. sPrices for electrolier posts and
tho installation of tho system aro being
obtained. The plan is to have six
posts to each block, throe on either
side of the street. and the district
planned to be lighted is both sides of
Front from Sixth to Pine, the south
side of Front from Sixth to Locust,
Locust from Front to Ninth, Dewey

one block west on Fourth, nnd the
north side of Fourth one block east;
this east nnd west In nil cases starting
from Dewey. It is further planned to
follow tho scheme used at Fremont,
York and other towns, thpt is to have
the property owners pay one-hnlf for
the posts and installation cost, and
the tenant the other half, tho city to
pay for the current and maintenance
of the lights. It will cost in tho

Shut in a Vault.
Theatrical interest centres deeply in
the engagement of "Alias Jimmy Val

evening for it comes to North Platte
one of the surest hits in a decado. In
this remarkable play which has been
running two years in New York, the
leading character is a professional safe
brenker, who has trained his finger tips
to such a degree of sensitiveness, that
he can detect tho fall of tho levers in a
safe or vault by his sense of touch, thus
being able to open it regardless of his
ignorance of the combinations.
The fir3t act finds this trained crim

reform. Through tho kindness of in
fluential friends whom ho hns been able
to benefit, this former bank-looter is
given a responsible position in n nat
ional bank. There, by honest and
efficient service, he soon works his
way near the top of the ladder, when

a new vault, tho combination of which
has not yet been determined, ho is
