The Tmbuite is making prepara tions to issue a bier edition early in the spring for the purpose of properly setting forth the advan tages and merits of Lincoln County and North Platte. It will-not be a "boom" edition, but a solid growth edition. While surrounding towns and counties have been booming North Platte has been, making solid substantial growth, while the county has more than doubled in population, indicative of permanent investment that has come to stay. The preparation of this work will involve the expenditure of a large amount of labor and money, but we trust the people will give the move tneir corwai cooperation and assis tance. For the historical part, facts, ffufes, biographies of early semen, ana incidents or pioneer history tee earnestly solicited from thoat who have personal knowledge xf the ettring events that made up the early history of the county. Statements is regard to the yield of crops, anl other branches of hus bandry, are invited. Also articles on stock growing, dairy farming, etc We hope our farmer friends will not be backward in furnishing this information. The edition will be printed on fine book paper, and will consist of eight, and perhaps twelve, pages of The Tribune, giv ing illustrations of prominent men, buildings, etc. Those who can furnish us data are requested to do so without delay. Rev. W. G. Vessels has revived his Van Guard, formerly published in this city,, the publication place now being Broken Bow. Its chief ainr is to advance the cause of prohibition. The fashionable thing now we great m was in just is to form "trusts." The latest have noticed is a "distiller's trust." Put not your trust in distilleries Whiskey is a dangerous thing to fool with, and will get away with the strongest' man living. Trus.t it not, By the death of Sterling P. Rounds, which occured at Omaha laat Saimriav, Nebraska loses one of its motk valuable citizens. He- tignmg the eftce of public mister l wo years ago, fee settled m.uaana, Am coeajNUty with Cadet Taylor pur chasing the Omaha 'Republican, his broad vision plainlv discerning that Nebraska is to be the center of pop ulation and wealth for this country. Having been engaged the printing and type foundry bus iness in Chicago for over twenty- five years, his acquaintance among newspaper men of the West extensive, by whom he was held the highest esteem. At the time of his death Mr. Rounds was nearly sixty years old. The body was taken to Chicago for interment. Atteb all Cleveland is a shrewder politician than the leaders of either party are willing to admit. He dis cerned the importance of making himself an issue. Had he only in cidentally touched on the tariff and devoted the balance of his message to the consideration of many sub jects, it would have been common place, eliciting only the ordinary comment upon such documents. Cleveland could see this would not make an issue, and would not make him the issue. By his one subject message he mis thrown down the gauntlet, and the democrats are obliged to take him for their cham pion.

The fire was dis covered in the hay loft of a barn in the rear of Filer, s drag store, and owned by D. C. Van Dorn, and was extinguished before any damage had been done. This second at tempt, which evidently was the wort of an incendiary, to set fire oat among the wooden buildings in town, has caused considerable ex citement among the owners of prop erty in the lcrcamy in which these two attempts nave been made. Some suspicions' as to the perpetra tors have been indulged in, and threats' are plainly made that if the quity parties are discovered, some of our telegraph poles will likely bear peculiar fruit.

TO THE PE0PLE0F LINCOLN COUNTY AND WESTEEN NEBRASKA : We solicit the honor of your presence at our which will be the finest ever seen west of Omaha, Over FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS' worth of the latest and most elegant designs , of - meht POWDER Absolutely Pure. p This powder never varies. A marvel of purity aaiagui ana -wnoiesomeness. With May corn at 55 cents per bushel in the Chicago market do our readers realize what a."bonanza" Nebraska has this year? The crop in this state this rear will reach 120,000,000 bushels. Put this at 40 cents a bushel,, or even 35 cents, and here is a grand aggregate of $4S. 000,000 down to $30,000,000. As this is higher than it has been for sereral years, it represents a clear gain of at least 20,000,000 over and above the crop of last year. With the enormous amount of fresh financial blood pouring into the state, it looks for tne present as though next season will be the most prosperous ever known in Nebraska. Omaha will get her share of the general prosperity, and the number of big buildinds going up, and other improvements will be enough to make the' head of .eastern capital swim. Omaha Republican. The fact that, under the rule prescribed by the last republican na tional convention, state conventions are required to be held at least thir ty days before the national conven tion, will bring about jauearly open ing of hostilities. Two stale con ventions are undesirable; it will b nesessary to nominate the state tick et at the same time when the foui delegaaes-at-large to the national canvention are chosen. Under the rule this cannot be later than the 19th of May. The revolutionary war wasn't fought yesterday, and yet there are thirty-eight old ladies, averaging 85 years, wno are still revolutionary pensioners.

It should pass both Senate and House without opposition, but an inscruta ble Providence has allowed some mighty small insects to crawl into both bodies, and it is hardly to be expected that the bill will go through without their buzzing.
