"CravfordTA!gtlt, The Tribune man was asked the other day what the citizens of Crawford intended to do about getting up a Fourth of July celebration at this place this year. The Tribune hopes that everyone in Crawford will aid in every way possiblo the efforts of our sister city Alliance in getting up the biggest, grandest and most successful Fourth of July celebration ever held in northwest Nebraska. We owe this to our selves and to our sister city, as a celebra tion was abandoned there last year in or der to help us, and the distinct understand ing then was that Crawford would join in with them this year. Stand up for Craw ford and go to Alliance on July 4, 1903. Crawford Tribune. Another Tire in Whitfield Grocery. The grocery store belonging to W. M. Whitfield in the Corbin building, which was discovered to be on fire one morning about two weeks ago was again discovered burning last Sunday about two a. m. The fire apparently originated in the rear end and when discovered that por tion of the building was iu a fair way to assume uncontrollable proportions. As it was almost the entire stock of groceries was ruined. There was about a car load of flour stored at the back of the room. His stock of canned goods, qucenswarc, glassware, etc., were all smoked The insurance on the stock was $3,000, which Mr. Whitfield says rlretty well covers his loss. His greatest trouble, he fears, will lie in inability to get insurance on any goods in the future as the circumstances make it appear that these fires may have been of incendiary origin. Serious Acciden W. E. Lotspeich had a leg broken by a horse falling on him Tuesday evening near the Lotspeich ranch. He was brought to the home of relatives in this city Wednes day by his brother A. M., and is getting along as well as could be expected. Tirst Game of the Season Won. The first base ball game of the season was played here Sunday afternoon as had been previously advertised between the Sidney and Alliance teams. The cold, wet, disagreeable weather prevented a good at--tendance, which the game certainly would have had on a fair day. As it was the gate receipts were sufficient to clear all ex penses. There were twenty-five or thirty visitors from Sidney in addition to the team. The game was a little bit too one sided to be excitingly interesting, The score stood iO to z. It's a good beginning for Manager Carlson's boys. Here's hop ing and believing it to be a token of future successes for them. Teachers Dining Hall. S. W. Reese entered into a contract Tuesday with the boarding committee of the junior normal to operate the dining hall for the teachers during the ten weeks' term, commencing Monday, June 8. The basement rooms of the school house will be used for this purpose. Board will be $2.75 per week which is indeed a very low figure but we venture to say that as good a meal as possible for the price will be served and everything cennected with the dining room will be neat and clean. The committee feels fortunate in securing Mr. Hccsc to take charge of this work. Lynching at Newcastle. "Diamond Slim" Clifton who murdered n young ranchman and his wife near Gil lette a few months ago was taken from the jail at New Castle, Wyo., by a mob of stockmen Wednesday uightu and lynched from a railroad bridge.
