An emigrant returning: from Cheyenne connty -to his home in Hastings died Tuesday night cviiici i icni mauj uuuu. appears mo man was taken sick and by mistake took a dose rof poison instead of medicine. The Presbyterian. Sunday-school, which has been suspended for several weeks by reason of diphtheria in close proximity to the church, will conveno as usual to-morrow afternoon at three o'clock. Saturday last was a red letter holiday, the occasion being the Knights of Labor picnic. 'There were gjtnes and sports in such multitude that no one could be disappointed in not having something to amuse and instruct. Remembering the pleasant time had last year, the people turned -outenmaeso and it's the universal verdict that everybody had a grand good time. Dr. E. B. Warner's new hearse arrived Monday and was taken in charge by Sam Van Doran, at whose stable it will be kept. Through the courtesy of Mr. Van Doran a Tribune reporter had the privilege of giving it a thorough inspection, and ho found it a vehicle of fine workmanship, with -all the latest improvements, costing a small fortune, the freight alone being over one hundred dollars. Such things are not pleasant to contem plate.but they are necessary in first-class funerals. The Buchanan Comedy Company will appear at Lloyd's opera house on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings of next week. This company was annonnced to play in this city several weeks -ago, but while in Kearney the manager was called east to attend the bedside of a relative and com pelled to withdraw the engagement here. The company is now playing to good honsea along the line of the U. P. and are all the better by reason of their forced vacation. A much needed institution in North Platte for some time has been a first-class restaurant, and it ia with pleasure The Tribune is able to announce this week that Sirs. 11. Urbachlias filled tho want in a highly creditablo manner by tho establishment of the Vienna Restaurant on Front street, which was opened to tho public on Tuesday. Everything is new, bo neat and inviting that a mere look in t the doors will make you hungry- The ground Hoor is divided into two departments, the lunch room and the dining room, while on tho upper floor there is a dining room for private parties. Heals will be prepared for families also at any time. While everything is first-class, tho prices are moderate, in keeping with the times, live and let live being tho motto. Tho house will be a credit to the city and will receive a liberal patronage from tho start. The Ministzb's WiFE.-Some observation and experience has convinced of tho import;ince of the following particulars in a minister's wife. She ought to bo selected by a committee of the church; ought to be just like everybody, please everybody, bo ready at all times for everything, have no will or way of horown, and boa cheerful drudge for everybody. She should never have any disability of any kind; sho should havo nerves of wire and -.sinews of iron; sho should never grow tired or impatient; she should be cheerfnl, intellectual, pious, and domesticated; she should keep the house in order, keep tho children clean and neat, and raise them to suit the tastes of ovcrybody. She should keep up tho style of a lady on very 6mall wages, and always havo leisure for "good work," and be ready to receive "morning calls." 8ho should lead in the Band of Hope, tho Dorcas Society and tho Ladies Jlissionary Society. Sho should teach infant clashes, keep up choirs, attend all meetings, help all tho poor, caro for tho sick, and do many other good thengs, too numerous to monKnn- nri'1 tl-.pn hn nlrvippd with RVfirvbodv and "-everything, and never desire any reward except jost what happens to come, and tho satisfaction of knowing that she lias done her own duty and much of the work of other people too. Observer. Our Schools. Feeling that many of our boys jicd girla are too busily engaged in play or other wise, to think of what else is about at hand for them, we whisper to them that school will open next Monday morning September 6th at nino o'clock. Books should be gotten ready for nso. Girls always liavo them neat and clean where they can find them, bst boys frequently allow theirs to become dirty. Hunt tlim and dust them, boys. Pupils should not secure their books until tho teacher gives them the proper list. This should bo particularly tho case with reading books. As the law requires narcotics to bo taught, there has been an arrangement made to give thorough instruction in this branch of physiology, both oral and with text books. Stale's physiology and works gotten up by Mrs. Hunt, Supt. W. C. T. TJ., have been regularly adopted. We shall make an effort to do a good work for the schools, but wo also trust parents will remember that this is thoirwork, and they should endeavor to assist the teacher at all times. A visit to the schools now and then will bo appreciated by tho teacher, and tho parents can then see what the teacher is doing. Wo will give school notes from time to tiino. H. V. A. PERSONAL GOSSD?.

Jim has well earned a respite from.work and The Tribune wishes him a capital John Hinman who spent several weeks in Milwaukee receiving medical treatment, returned home the early part of the week. Mrs. Hinman's large circle of friends will be pleased to learn that she returns to the city vastly improved. Vic Bierbower, formerly prosecuting attorney in this judicial district and well known in North Platte, is issiutant U. S. district attorney for Utah, with headquarters at Ogden, He has been instrumental in convicting about one hundred polygamists, and it can naturally be inferred that the Mormons don't love bim to any great extent. Lieut. F. R. Day of the signal corps, United States army, is on a tour of inspection. His territory comprises tho stations west of the Missouri river as far as Montana thence south through tho territories and Arkansas and Tennesee. He was in North Platte Tuesday and we opine found things in good 6hape. The reform administration having cut down the appropia tion, tho public will probably be deprived of weather reports in March for the balance of the year. Rev. Dr. Hopkins of Cincinnati is ex pected to preach in the Presbyterian church to-morrow. C. K. Iihoads from the Bird wood valley brought to this market a wagon load of chickens earl- in the week. lie found a read- sale at good figures. "We have in North Platte relatives of Daniel Boone, Abraham Lincoln and Jas. G. Blaine and two ladies who are cousins of the present governor of Kentucky. Go to Langford's for the finest fruit and vegetables in the market. On Monday the merchants of the city bought twenty-five wagon loads of water and musk melons, all raised in this county. This equals the state of Georgia. It has been rather quiet in land of fice block lately, although the rustlers re port a slight revival during the past week. The locations are mostly in the extreme western part of the state. The hail storm in the vicinity of Pax ton a couple weeks since did considera ble damage to late vegetables. Tom Brown, our former fellow townsman, lost his entire melon crop. Cold weather setting in just as the melon crop was ripe and ready to be marketed, reduced the demand for this excellent fruit The market has been well supplied and prices ruled low. Among those who went down to the reunion at Grand Island was county clerk Evans, and during his absence J. I. Jfesbitt officiated in the clerk's office. Mr. N. is at home in almost any position. See the declino in prices by gZancing at Langford's fruit and vegetable market on tins page. Henry Pell marketed two hogs on last Saturday, the average weight of each was 518 pounds. Ztfr. Pell has forty acres in corn and will have forty fat hogs for the market this fall. It pays better to market hogs than corn. Since March 1st the Pacific Hotel Co. of this place have used up a register containing o.OSS names, nearly one-half of whom were commercial travellers who make this town every thirty or sixty days. These figures show that this is an import ant town among the knights of the grip. Call on H. II. Langford, the fruit man of the town. A gentleman wants to know how it would do to start a dynamite factory on the Dismal, there being plenty infusorial earth at the forks of the river. Our per mission is granted, but we suggest that 'a Chicago anarchist be engaged to do the work. He could be blown up so easy ana save the hangman a job. The infant child of Mr. and Mrs. John Ellison was -.buried from the home on last Monday at 10 a. m. Many friends were in attendance in expression of a deep regard for the bereaved young par ents and in testimony of heartfelt sympa thy. The hay-rack ride indulged in by half a dozen couples of our young folks Monday evening proved a pleasant source of amusement, those participating report ing an excellent time. The young ladies getting up the affair are to be compli mented in their successful effort to pro vide entertainment for the gentlemen. Harry Blodget and Clarence Allison called at our sanctum last Monday. The gentlemen have claims in 10-34 and 10-35. Mr. Blodgett accepts a position in W. C. Lemon's land and law office at North Platte. AVe congratulate Mr. Lemon on securing the services of a wide-awake and energetic young man to assist him in his large and rapidly increasing business. Grant Enterprise. Laugford is making a specialty of hand Zing fine fruits and vegetables, and seWing them at moderate prices. The Tkibune acknowledges tho re ceipt of a complimentary to the Omaha fair, which will be held on the Gth to the 11th of this month. If the obliging secre tary, Daniel II. Wheeler, had only sent us a railroad pass and an order for "grub" at one of the leading hotels, we would honor the event with our august presence; as it is we fear we will have to stay at home. It is sincerely hoped the associa tion will have better weather for the ex hibition than they had last year, and that the cash account will show a reasonable balance in the treasury after paying expenses. Ed. race judge money which An Explanation. Tiuhcne: In the at the pic-nic Saturday or judges made a girls' the tie for second anil a second race was run in the girl who was second in the first race was beaten. There was no ex cuse for such a decision as the taller girl of the two who ran the tie oil was at least two feet in advance of the other and was only beaten for first place by less than a foot. Judge. THE COUNTY FAIR. The Dates set for Oct. 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th. At a meeting of the Board of Directors of the County Agricultural Society some time since the date of commencing the fair was set for Sept 22d. Shortly after a letter was received from Mr. Cody (Buffalo Bill) requesting a postponement, as he and a number of his men desired to be present Some time was consumed in communicating with Mr. Cody, but finally a telegram reached him and was answered stating he could be here by the 5th of of October. Thereupon the board decided to set the Fair for the Gth of October, ending on the 9th. The fair promises to be one of the most attractive county fairs ever held in the State. The products of the county and surrounding districts have been most bountiful, assuring a magnificent exhibit in the agricultural line, and several parties have indicated their intention to have fine stock on exhibition. The premiums in the speed ring are very liberal. Besides the usual events of trotting and running, there will be the unusual and highly interesting feature of a grand Boman chariot race on on each day" and an exciting 25-mile free for all runing racefor a liberal purse. These features are something never attempted at a county fair in the State and are events that people go hundreds of miles to witness. The 25-mile race is an event that should attract a number of entries and give our young horsemen and cowboys an opportunity to show their horsemanship and powers of endurance. It will be a grand time for sport. Making hay is still being pushed with zeal and many will not be through "when frost compels them to cease their labors for this year. The Peniston house being completed the Judge and his family took possession "Wednesday. It is a mighty fine residence and the Judge may well be proud of it. R. & S. have put up one of the neatest and finest signs in the city, Reed & Miles being the Artists. Mr. Rosenfeld is displaying taste in the arrangement of his stock and fixtures. A. Smiley, living in the southern part of Keith county, sixty-five miles distant, came to the city this week to lay in a stock of supplies. This speaks well for our enterprising merchants. Mrs. Mathias Elias, of Medicine, pre cinct was in the city Thursday soliciting aid for her husband who was injured while working in a well, a hatchet falling from tho top striking him on the head, in flicting a dangerous wound. To keep the walls dry as possible and dampness from underneath the floors, Mr Grady has banked the foundation of his block with a large amount of earth filling. This is rendered necessary to a certain extent, as it stands in quite a low place. Lewis Ilaaze, an employe of the U. P. died at his residence on the north side about four o'clock Thursday morning. The family of the deceased being in destitute circumstances, a brief was circulated and quite a sum raised for the widow and fatherless children. A gentleman traveling west on No. 3 Wednesday night had a paralytic stroke when near this citv and was taken from the train and given quarters at the Pacific Hotel. Thursday night a relative arrived and took tlie unfortunate man east the following morning, nis recovery was considered doubtful. The heated term being over, it will now be in order to inquire about a supply of fuel for the approching coolness that will soon be with us. The coal broblem is one with which we have to wrestle with considerable livliness, and its not a bad plan to take Boreas by the foretop by providing a supply of the black diamonds before the old man gets his grip firmly fixed upon us. Those who have deferred thir summer vacation to 1he cool days of September will have much more enjoyable trips. Among those who have done so are Mr. and Mrs Hoaglaud who will visit Boston on the occasion of the meeting of the Sovereign Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows. It will be in the mellow autumn days arid they can't help but have an enjoyable time. In looking over our country exchanges we notice frequent reference to the fact that unsightly weeds obstruct the side walks, vacant lots, ore. In this respect North Platte cannot make much com plaint, the streets and grounds being remarkably free from nuisances of this nature. But on west Fifth street however the weeds have nearly covered the side walks in some places, rather to the discredit of that cleanly portion of the city. It's a very small job to remove them, but it's probably nowbody's business to do so. The owners of property, how ever, should havo sufficient enterprise to have them cut down in front of their respective lots. In this respect Russell "Watts set a good example some time ago. The merchants of North Platte are now displaying their fall stocks of goods. Fabrics are unusually rich and fine, apparently each year the demand being for costlier and bettor goods. This is especially true of Nebraska and other States in the great agricultural belt. "When we came here we were poor (some of us hold our own pretty we" I): then the coarser goods and the necessaries of life were all we could afford. But the majority are growing richer. They cannot only afford to buy better articles but many of them indulge in the luxuries and fine ornaments supposed to be only within the reach of the bond-holders aud middle men. These things indicate prosperity beyond what we are willing to ac knowledge. New York. Aug. 23. A dispatch from Boston to the Ecening Pot says: The Union Pacific railroad company last "Wednesday paid the last note standing against it and is now entirely out of floating debt. "When Mr. Adams became presidont in June, 1884, bills and accounts payable amounted to 9,700,000, and the courts decided that $916,000 in addition was due to the government, making the total floating debt$10,61G,000 in June 30, 1884. The company has thus in a little over two years paid off all its floating debt This has been accomplished by three methods: First the surplus income of 1SS5 was $2,500,000; second, Kansas Pacific consols, and Oreeon Short Line bonds have been sold, but no addition to fixed charges is made on this account, as the amount of the Kansas Pacific consols outstanding was decreased 1,022,000 in 18S5, this being accomplished by the application of tha proceeds of land sales ; third, by the sale of assets, principally St. Joseph and Grand Island bonds. "When Mr. Adams began his administration the St. Joseph and Grand Islaud road had hardly any value, not earning its interest, while as the result of his management it now not only earns the interest on its first mortgage bonds, which sell above par, but also on its incomes. Information Wanted. The people in the southwest portion of the county are considerably interested in cisterns, some Having already constructed them and others contemplating doing so. As a rule they are not posted in this class of work and a subscriber asks the following questions, which we trust, some one skilled in the art of cistern building will answer through the columns of The Tribune. "What, proportion of sand to water and lime is best in making the mortar for cis terns ? Is it necessary to put on more than two coats V Is it best to wait until the plaster is perfectly dry before letting the water in ? Can a cistern be successfully used in draws or lagoons for stock ; if so, what is the best plan for building them V Is it better to cover the sod roof with boards, cement or tar. or take off the sod and shingle the house? Maxwell Nowo. Haying is nearly finished and it will be a relief to all concerned when the last stack is topped, for though it has been a good season and but little, if any, poor hay has beeu put up, yet it is hard work at best. The school board is putting the school house in shape for tho next term of school by making some needed improve meats, such as calcimining, painting and laying a new floor. The bridge building outfit was side tracked here the first of the week. Among other improvements made was the setting of sign pests at the crossings, thereby in viting the public to have an eye open for the company's rolling stock . There is some talk of opening a rosd between Maxwell and Garfield ; also hav ing a mail route established between the same places. Both of which would be of advantage both the people near the station and settlers north and northeast of here. Sam Morant of the firm of Appleford and Morant returned last week from a trip to his home in Harobire England. Messrs. McGee, Prico and Davis with Abe Brooks for guide did the sportsmen act thoroughly in this vicinity on Wednes day, we did not learn with "what success but if Abe did any shooting for them he wont give them away.

Cash's milk team gave an impromtu circus Tuesday and promiscuously scattered the lacteal fluid Proctor's haying outfit from, the headwaters of the Dismal were in for supplies this week. The Reunion. The G. A. R. reunion at GraHd Island which closes to-day, was a grand success in every respect, the weather being f'firie and the attendance large. Perhaps there were no more veterans present than were gathered last year at Beatrice, but there were more families and more sons, of, veterans, the large number of the latter- class being a noticeable feature and ,they will increase from vear to vear as-Jtlie old veterans succumb to the infirmity of advancing are, until finally it' will" devolve upon them to keep the campjres burniug. The presence of the regular troops 'and a battery of artillery was a great attraction especially to the younger generation whose curiosity to see and hear the "dogs of war" is great. Of course a battery on parade in time of peace presents an entirely different appearance from one in the front in time or war. From a brief visit on the seemed to us that the old more time that usual to visitingeach other, renewing pleasant acquaintances formed at former reunions and in social inter course generally. There was a decided aversion to falling in for parade and march ing to make an exhibition of themselves. "While it may be pleasant to the general officers to make a display of equestrian ship, the feature is likely to become less prominent at each succeeding reunion. The management deserves great credit for the energy and ability displayed in the almost endless details of arrangement The building of tho gunboat, "ship and monitor, afld their propulsion about the ground as though on water, is a great work and a feature possible onJHt such a place as Grand Island. The evolutions of the fleet attracted much attention and were pronounced highly realistic. North Platte was well represented, both by old soldiers and others, thirty-five or forty from the county being present. Altogether the reunion of 1880 was per haps the most enjoyable of any that has been held. ST i .a Urbach, ii- AND grounds it soldiers devoted Slaughter of tho Innocents. As previously announced, the. side hunt of the Lincoln County Sportsmen's Club took place on "Wednesday, Sept'i 1st. For several weekspastthe eventhas been look ed forward to with keen pleasure by the sportsmen of the city and members of the respective sides .were confident that their side would be the victorious one. At 7 :30 Tuesday evening those intending enjoying the sport registered at McGee's real estate office, and after that hour they were given the privilege of stirting for their selected hunting grounds. Few, however, started before"3 a. m. the. following morning, the" majority leaving the city abont 6 o'clock. From Brady Island on tho east to O'Fallons on the west and all along the north side of the river men and dogs were conspicuously scattered. In many of the enclosed pastures notices to huuters and trespassers were posted, but a box of cigars or a flask of soda water held up before the eyes of the land owner made him smile and the hunters were allowed to pursue their sport unmolested. All over the country there was a continual bang, bang, of the shotgun enough firing to lead the uninitiated to believe that a pitched battle between two forces was taking place. About 8 o'clock the parties began returniKg and from that hour until 10:30 the conveyances drove up to the Hinman House at intervals and deposited their load of game; subjecting the same to the count of scorer Conklin and when all were in the record as neat as the reporter could learn stood as follows : TOM O'XEAL, C.UTAI-. 5 p ?- o O a alH O'Neal, Davis.

The repast was a notable omf"A1fd reflected credit upon the management of the house as well as the culinary artist under whose supervision it was prepared. Several of those who participated in the sport were too tired to wait for supper, but when gorging himself with delicious prairie chicken the reporter noticed the following hunters and guests: M. F.

O'Ncil and 3IcEvoy, the captains, were in excellent sprrlfs, "the latter taking his defeat with ChrHain fortitude and has tlie comforting knowledge that the opposing side outnumbered him by two men. Prairie. chickens are not reported pleatiful and when hunted with dog are wild, some being shot Wednesday when 120 yards distant For the next few days sportsmen will be out every day and game will be a leading article of food in the city.

Langford's un vmwn nun in MARKET. The cool weather of the past week has effected the fruit market very materially, the retail trade being very dull, arid sales not oyer one half what they were the week before, peaches and pfum3 selling principally by the box. Grapes are on the' decline and before the season is over will be so.ld cheaper than ever before. Parties waiting for peaches to get cheaper before buying for preserving, are making a mistake as they are cheaper now than they will be two weeks later. Next week I will have clings in the market, and all who wish to pickle or can peaches should bu' at once. Vegetables of home pro duction are plentiful, and sold very cheap. We still claim to be headquarters for fruit and the more rare varieties of vegetables. Prices for the coming week will range about as follows: Cal.
