pf LINCOLN HIGHWAY
MAY HI- HnMuM
NORTH PLATTE, NEBRASKA, AUGUST 25, 1922.
NATIONAL AND STATE OFFICIALS
"VISIT CITY AND CONSIDER
National" Secretary Holgo and wlfo
and State Counsel Walz, Loth of tho
Lincoln Highway Association were in
North Plntto yesterday. They woro
conferring with local officials of tho
Lincoln Highway in regard to matters
of business. In company with some
of tho road and highway men they
visited tho Lincoln Hignwny on tho
north side and considered changing
tho route from Twelfth to Ninth
street. After crossing tho Union Pac
ific tracks on Locust street, tho route
Is north on Locust to Twolfth and
thence west on Twolfth to tho Cody
Itanch. It is proposed to chango tho
routo so that after crossing tho tracks
on Locust it turns west on Ninth
street and boyond tho city limits It
angles over to tho Cody Ranch road.
Tt is said tho proposed route would
do away with tho sharp curvo near
tho cemetery whero at least two auto
drivers havo met death. Tho twelfth
street Toad is along tho city limits
and is neither city nor county. It is
not paved and there is probably little
prospect of its being paved for many
years to come. The Ninth stroet route
is now being paved for sevon blocks
and this will likely bo continued west
to tho city limits as soon as it can be
arranged. Tho local party which in
spected tho proposed route included
A. B. Hoagland, Lincoln County Coun
sel, B. F. Seoborgcr, District Co.unsel,
Mayor H. H. Evans, Engineer It.- L.
Cochran and others. Tho enterprise
of tho Ninth street residents in get
ting the paving started this year is in
part responsible" for tlio ""suggestion
that such enterprise be rewarded by
putting Ninth stroet on the Lincoln
Highway, tho greatest nation road in
tho world. Tho matter has not yet
been settled but if the peoplo affected
will urge it unitedly it will become a
fact boforo long.

NORTH LINCOLN COUNTY SUNDAY
We havo been asked several times lately how
we hold so much business when everybody is
saying business is poor. Our answer has been
''Full Weight at the Right Price with Service."
When you buy a bushel o! potatoes and they
are delivered in a basket, do you get 60 lbs.?
When you buy a peck, is it 15 lbs. or is it a 14
lb. sack full? When you buy a pound of coun
try butter, do you get a pound or do you just
get a print? We weigh everything that is sup
posed to be sold by weight and guarantee ful
So bewere of the measure, they hardly ever
hold out. Let us prove this to you.
