John McCoUongh of Maxwell, was in town this week, after wrestling with rheumatism for many iBontlis. C. P.

C Holbrook returned from Hastings yesterday morning, having experienced a plea sant time at the dental convention . Dr. W. E. Burgett, ngent for the International Cyclopedia, gave na a pleasant call yesterday morning. The International is an excellent work. Chas. McNcal of SilrerCreek, X. Y., brother-in-law of Geo. Prest, was in town several days during the week, that he might judge of the iossibiIities aad probabilities of the country- . Harry Ferguson, who has been attending com mercial college in Lincoln for several months, arrived t home Wednesday. Ho will attend mother term of the school this fall. ' W. H.

Mu namerons fririln traat he will hook hu at hi he Mat. feSfc-- . .t&&;&&lrS J. N. Nwbitt, of tfrortea, Ohio, broUier of (xmnty Attoraer Keabitt, ha beea visiting his relatives in tho city Uiis week. It in not un likely Mr. Ncsbit twill locate in this good part of tho West. Mr. Ottman, the efficient deputy county trea surer, is expected soon to go into Foley's stores an book-keeper and manager in Mr. F.'s absence. Mr. Ottman has n thorough knowledge of the mercantile business. Wm. Cartwright, who has leeu Mr. Foley's book-kceiwr for some time, has again taken service with Mr. Patterson. Will has a thorough knowledge of tho land business and is a valuable .acquisition to Mr. Patterson's office. Dr. A. H. Starr, of Hed Willow precinct, was in the city n couple days this week, being his first visit in t-ix months. Everything looks pros perous in his ncightorhood, and the people expect the railroad in abont IS days. Nathaniel E. Martin, of Concord, N. H.. was in the city several days this week. Th object of Mr. Martin's viHit to the West is to thoroughly inspect this jortion of Nebraska, where he has a largo amount of money loaned on real estate. W. C. Lemon is his agent in this city. After looking over tho county, it is needless to say he was highly pleasod with his securities. W. L. Park of this city went to New Orleans last week to represent the conductors in their national convention. This is what the Times Democrat of that city says of him: Messrs. W. L. Park, of the Union Pacilic Railroad, with headquarters at North Platte. Neb., and Harry Gilmore, of the Missouri Pacific Kail "road, with stamping grounds at Omaha, Neb., both delegates to tho "Conductois' annual con vention." are doing the city in true railroad siyle, leaving no point of interest nnvisited. They ex press themselves as delighted with what they have seen, and look witli no little regret. njon the time which will coinixrl them to take their flight homeward. It is tho wish of the many ac quaintances whom they hare formed here that they may soon ho among us again. A BIG DEAL. A Syndicate pin-chases a Large Tract of Land and Will Lay Ont an Addition to the City. One of the biggest Keal Estate deals since the boom struck our city was con summated Saturday last A syndicate of home and Omaha capitalists have pur chased of B. I.Clinman all the land he owned west of the city and lying north of Second street, including the lots and blocks owned by him in his second addi tion, the whole amount being over one hundred and sixty acres, at 250 per acre, amounting to something like 40,000. As soon as surveyed the company will proceed to plat the tract and make an ad dition to the city. This land is ver choice. It will soon become the favorite part for line subur ban homes, where people can surrouud their dwellings with beautiful gardens, now practically impossible in the original part of the city. Already men of means arc talking of buying blocks as soon as platted fortius purpose, aud the Twbi'XE predicts large and rapid rates. The name of the addition has not yet been decided upon. GREAT BARGAIN SALE DET GOOD! CiJBgETS, SHOES, DIDN'T GET TI MAN. A Deputy Sheriff and Fosse of Logan Go; are ai..J SUCH 1 Ti 3 Young Man, A correspondent from Arthur county furnishes us the following account of the attempt to arrest a man named Harris, who is supposed tij have robbed Major Bush, the paymaster, tip in Wyoming recently. This is Harry Hopkins' side of the story aud i-probably as accurate as the sensational accounts published in the daily papers. There is noiruth in the story of 3000 reward, or in the statement that the Sheriff and a posse from Kearnej' i'h'ad been scared off by the bold and gal lant highwayman. He has nerve and can send a bullet just about where he wants it to go, aud it would be a difficult matter to round him up on an open prairie : Harry Hopkins, a popular young man of good character, has acted in the capa city of arent for several years Horse Kaneh of Williams & sixty miles northwest of here. For the next thirty days we shall place on sale all our new goods at prices that will beat them all. Regardless of the great advance in dry goods we shall con tinue to sell at even better than the old prices.

It will be remembered that in Febru ary W. E. Beach sold the ne. of tho ne. I4 of section 32, adjoining the north west corner of the city, to Lincoln parties for $4,000. It was considered a good sale, as the Tjwbuxe stated at the time, indicating as it did a rapid rise in values, 3rr. Beach having paid but .$1,000 for the tract. A couple weeks since, Kansas City parties looking for investment, of fered $6,000 for the forty acres. Messrs. Hoqgland & Ross, in whose hands the property had been placed, telegraphed to Lincoln for lowest figures and received in answer that it would take 8,000 to buy it. This was considered too high, and negotiations were opened resulting in the parties meeting half way and the sale was effected, at seven thousand dollars, Mr Samuel II . Finklestein of Kansas City being the purchaser. This is a pointer. It points to more than is known by our people. It shows that outside capitalists are aware of the value of ITorth Platte real estate, and are not afraid to put their money into it. The Nebraska and Colorado railroad runs through considerable land owned by Bernard Beer, and he was not satisfied, with the amount offered him as damages, accordingly a suit was commenced this week in the district court to recover the wot-xhiimgd byBwir-rBinmau. &r GrkHes'bMr his atknews;5wBL& -5'-." v.-.

The Deputy ran towards his comrades and Harris fired again, to expedite his movements. The terrified Deputy fired but with a different gun. Hopkins drove up to Harris, requesting him not to shoot sun more and further stating he was not a prisoner. Harris "were 3011 a prisoner I would shoot your two horses, I would then kill theirs and then I would tie them up and tlog them, and drive the three Ganders into Ganuerville ahead of me as the shepherd dog drives sheep. Harris is about twenty three years of age of pleasing manners and address, modest uupretending and unassuming, aud would easily pass for. a carpet knight. Hopkins straightened his affairs with the Gandy authorities, and gave this report when on his way back to build the store and commence business. As the TnicuNi; predicted, those who attended the concert given by the Tyrol ean Concert Company at Lloyd's Monday evening, experienced an evening of sweet music. The wooden horns produce a soft melodious sound, and being iu the hands of expert musicians, soothing and encharting to lovers of music. The companj deserved a larger house than they received, there being only a moder ate number present, and a good portion of those going in on complimentaries. This is not a good concert or lecture town. There wasn't a majority of the mem bers present Monday evening and there was no meeting of the council. Maj'or Ham mond, clerk Warner and councilmen Roach, Snyder and Hook were present, aud devoted the time to a profitable dis cussion of several subjects, water-works being a principal topic. It is evident this important question is not yet dead. After a couple weeks' patient trial, the strawberry market in this city has reached something like bed-rock prices. You can now get a box of very fair berries for twenty cents, and we believe the bottoms are not as high up as usual.

The storms in progress as we went to press last week, were quite severo in many places jn the eastern portion of tlie state, culminating at Jilue Springs in a regular twister, destroying the large brick school house at that place, and fatally wounding one man. A woman was killed by lightning a short distance away. There were small cyclones at several other points, but we have not heard of any loss of life. At Xorth Platte the weather was threatening for several days and wc could hear the distant murmurings of storm, but no rain of consequeuce reached us until Monday morning, when it came in fine shape, wetting the surface of the ground very nicely.
