STEVENS & BARE, Edctpm akdPkow. SATUBDAY, KABCS 3d, The Paxton Pilot made its bow to the public this week. Published at the thriving village of Paxton in Keith county, it has a fine field and 'will be a success from the start. Cant. J. W. Wilson is editor, and ? both the editorial and local pages are replete with sparkling, readable " articles. Evidently the editor tafces -iride in the paper, for its mechani- id appearance is as bright as the intellectual. . The strike of the engineers and Ireraen on the C, B. and Q. rail way system commenced Monday. Traffic at first was entirely suspend ii, but at last accounts most of the sail and a few freight trains were moving. The company manifests a 4'ttposition to light to the bitter end, njjardless of consequences. In a ibancial point x view it would fTve,been much cheaper to have of the en- e outcome of a loner contest, the result will be iiu linn to both si dW at the same time of great inconvenience and loss t the public. The county commissioners are linking old delinquent, non-collect-aUe taxes from the tax list. This is all very well, and something that alMild be done from time to time, we believe the law says every two years; but the amount that has thus Wen lost to the county is consider able. There is is no need of refer- f iag to the past. The tax has not been collected and cannot be col lected now. But a new leaf should be turned over and a new practice adopted in future. It is an injus tice to the man who pays his taxes as regularly as the year rolls round, to allow a portion of the people to escape without paying. If the treasurer works strictly as the law directs this would not be at least the per cent of non-collected taxes would be very small.

Tribune, Dear Sirs: Myrtle not having been represented before in your correspondence, I would say there is such a place about 20 miles northeast of North Platte, on a high divide, which represents some of the finest agricultural land in the state. School districts and their bound aries are the principal questions agitating this community at present. At the present time there are three petitions out: one to throw out the southern half of district 29 (Myr tle) they not agreeing on the lo cation of the school house in the old boundaries; another for a new district between Myrtle and Whit tier, which takes off their territory; and another to be the Coxe district which takes -from Whittier, Gar field, and McPherson districts. All are badly needed and we predict success. Quite a number of our young peo ple attended the lyceuni at Whittier last Saturday evening and were well entertained. The regular debate dispensed with, they had a mock trial divorce case. The legal talent of the place was well represented. The Judge granted the divorce, on the grounds according to evidence their characters were too bad to live in connubial relations. Mf T.otiq nn cnlinnl confirm 1ft - r UVltWUl WWW. VTA trouble.

The other, day a wharf rat came Out for a promenade on the sidewalk. The ladies and others passing along set up such a noise that it disturbed the nerve of his ratship and he ran out into the street and climbed into the wagon of a passing expressman. The ex pressman immediately Jumped down and 8eizinghisJhorses by the bits, called for apoliceman to remove the rat. The policemaiurefused to en danger his life in any such way. A street car came along and the driver yelled to -the expressman to get off the track; The expressman allowed he wouldn't go a step farther until the frightful animal was removed from his wagon. A street blockade was of course the result. Finally a dudish looking young man from the country appeared upon the scene and learned the occasion of the stoppage of traffie. He got upon the wagon wheel, grabbed the rat by the tail and laid him out with a sudden jerk on the cold stones of the pavement.
