The prescription clerk also rolls up his sleeves in anticipation of the rush. The railroad companies have been gathering statistics relative to the forth- coming corn crop of Nebraska.

Nowell's hay shed at Hendy sidetrack was blown down. The building was 106 feet long 28 wide, 25 in height with sides and ends weatherboard- ed. The loss is about $400, partially cov ered by a policy in a cyclone insurance company. On Monday last a number of U. P. con- ductors running between Omaha and this city were "let out," the charge being that they were too anxious to become million aires bv means not strictly legitimate. Among the number were Messrs.

The boys are well known in this citv and their friends regret to see them step down and - out on such charges. -The Eighth Cavalrv enroute from the Mexican border in Texas to Fort Meade, Dakota, under command of Col. Mizner, camped near the city to-day. The regiment is about 600 strong, in sol diers, with u lull band, teamsters, etc. ..There were several patches of hail in the storm Sunday night, but we have heard of none in this county. At Ogalal la there was considerable hail,- extending south into Perkins, doing much damage. The storm was also severe in Custer coun ty. The rain along the Platte in Dawson couaty was very heaw, making roads al- atoet impassable and interfering with harvest work.

As a majority of the peo ple of Wallace do not want a -licensed sa loon, they should promptly stop illegal selling The Seventh-Day Adventists will hold a camp,meeting at Grand Island Septem ber 11th to 19th. From a letter received from Eld. Nettleton the arrangements for a good time appear to be quite com plete, and we know from experience that tne Adventists .know now to carry on a meeting of this class, being second only to tne Methodists and united uretnern. We trust the wicked people of Grand Island will be convinced of the error of their ways. It gives us pleasure to call attention to the advertisement of the Star Clothing House, an old institution, but under new management, Joseph Weber, jr., and Will A. Vollmer succeeding Mr. Otten as proprietors. The house has an en viable reputation throughout IVest Ne braska for carrying fine goods, and under the new management we are confident will lose none of the popularity and con fidence of the people. Mr. Weber has not been with us long and Is not so well known, but Will Volmer a has been in the house for over two years. Both are en ergetic young men. ay a circular irom Air. ladings we are reminded that it is time to lay in our winter's supply of coal, a subject the con templation of which does not have a cool ing effect in these dog days. Pennsyl vania anthracite coal for August delivery is offered for $14, Colorado anthracite $12.50. These prices will very likely be advanced in beptemoer or later, and. con sumers can make interest on the invest ment by purchasing now. As the mines are exclusively in the hands of monopo lists, there is no telling what the Barons will do. Before spring the price will likely advance to $18 for Pennsylvania. Church & Bixler were engaged in an important case at Sidney last week and as usual came on victorious, a man by the name of Henry W. Elliott, who had been operating under several assumed names, was an trial for horse stealing. It was evident mat ne was a memoer of a gang that had been doing a -wholesale business in the line, having ranches here and there and stables at several places. Four or five lawyers were engaged in the defense and the prisoner had a large number of witnesses from different parts of the country. The trial lasted several days. The jury brought in a verdict of guilty, the sentence oi tne court being ior nve years in ine penitentiary, it is believed this will break up the gang. greatly to the satisfaction of horse men. He was prosecuted by Wyoming parties. The news of the death of Gen. Sheri- Joe Casey is building an addition to his houee oa west Fourth street. Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Hammond started on a trip to Ogden and Salt Lake the early part oi the week. Work on the O'Fallon bridge is being viroroaslv pushed. It will likely be ready for crossing before the time speci fied in the contract. We have heard reports of a serious hall storm on the Medicine near Wellfieet Sunday .night, but have been unable to gather any particulars. The semi-aoaual statement of treas urer Osgood appears in our columns to day, the publication of which amterially cuts down our reading matter.- A heavy thunder storm prevailed over the country north and northwest of .tne city rnursday nignt, bnt as yet we have heard of no damsge resulting. M. T. Allum started west Wednesday morning, intending to transact business in the towns between here and Denver and then join Mrs. A, who is visiting friends In the mountain part or tne state. Black's ten cent circus is billed to ap pear in this city Monday and Tuesday. We know nothing of the merits of the concern, but it's a mighty poor show if it Is not worth a dime to see. City Engineer Boss has been engaged to survey a new town site on Mr. Dud ley's land at the north end of the new bridge a short distance west of O'Fallon station. The railroad company has al ready put in a side track at that point. The Tribune regrets to chronicle the serious illaess of Mrs.- T. J. Foley, her condition the past few days being critical. lesterday afternoon the physicians in at- tendance considered ner somewhat better. It is sincerely wished by all that she may recover. Chas. P. Boss has had a photograph made of the central portion of the large map he recently made for the board of trade. It shows North Platte and sur rounding country as far south as the South river and almost to the JNorth river. It appears, to be very accurate. 4 The busy harvest season has prevented some of our correspondents sending in their usual contributions, but we hope they will now give us some particulars of the harvest. We believe .Lincoln county can beat any part of the State raising grain, and want the outside world to know it. A Bepublican caucus was held at Dr. Bnckworth's office Wednesday evening, the object being to select delegates to the county convention Over thirty mem bers of the party were present, and the proceedings were harmonious. The fol lowing delegates were named, and their selection confirmed at the primaries Thursday: First ward, Messrs. Hawley, Stamp, Warner, Besack, Humes and Hun tington; Second ward, Oberst, Robinson, Van Doran, Jvocken, Iddmgs. Thomson and Small wood; Third ward, Snyder, McCIellan and Peterson. The conven tion assembles to-day at 2 p . m. Commenting on our notice of Mr. Nes bitt's speech at Long Pine, the Wallace Herald is curious to learn The Tribune's idea of handling the prohibition question. If we should travel eighty miles to pro test against the issuance of a saloon li cense and succeeded in our mission, we would be equally zealous In making com plaint against those who were unlawfully engaged in selling liquor in our village. The Herald complains of drunken and disorderly conduct in Wallace, yet there are no saloons there. One of The Tri bune's "ideas of handling the subject" would be to promptly prosecute those en caged in tne illegal trauc. A nne oia couple hundred dollars occasionally would soon make the business odious in the estimation even of its most ardent promoters. To say that a village should not have a saloon is right and proper, but for those who thus shut out the saloon to sit Idly down and see the law flagrantly violated, Is, to say the least, not the way to handle the subject. The Curtis Courier speaks In high terms of Supt Langford's address before the Frontier County institute. As a speaker, Mr. Langford. possesses powers that are fast attracting attention. His subject on the occasion was "The True Basis of Civil Liberty." The Courier says the speaker "carefully and succently brought together an array of clear cut and convincing facts having a tendency not only to fully convince the hearer of his own earnest belief confirmed by bis zeal, but also to show that he was master of the subject under discussion. Forty- five minutes of a rapid extemporaneous grouping of seed thoughts only .sufficed to place the subject in outline before his hearers, but judging the future fruits of the address by the many intelligent faces that reflected the spirit of that bond of ethical culture which marks the band of teachers assembled, we are led to believe that the echoing notes of the address will continue to bear fruit till the full ripe fruition of our teachers mission is an ac complished fact" John Neary was quite seriously hurt last Saturday evening and will be laid up for a day. or two. iie .was putting a roof of corrugated iron da a building on his farm when tne strong wina mat came ud lust oeiore nigni uitea one or tne sneets striking him in tne isce and causing aim I to fall to the ground, some ten or twelve feet.

Lyn. the in the Republican Bally in Morrow Precinct. Our first Republican Rally was held at G. M. Bobbitt's Friday ere Aug. 3. It was largely attended, fall of enthusiasm, and long to be remembered, able speakers were present from North Platte, Mr. Geo. E. French taking the leading part Mr. W. T. Bowen chairman of the Republican Club of this pre- cinct mane a lew remarks ana men introduced Geo. E. French who in his able manner told why he was Republican and urged upon the young men the necessity of starting out aright in their political career. Mr. F. is certainly a fine speaker and has won many friends in this vicinity. He was followed by Mr. Goodson, and then Mr. Murphy was loudly called for, but declined to take the stand. R. F. Forrest was next introduced and spoke quite extendedly on the Tariff and The Mills Bill. Mr. Rhea was next called. His talk was full of en thusiasm and we are sure if all the ReDublicans were as zealous as he victory would surely be theirs. Mr. French then made a few closing remarks, after which a paper was circulated to obtain signers to the young men's Republican club, which was signed by nearly every voter m the precinct. But the best part was yet to come, so thought tne . i ii mi "XT it mt i i young ioiKs. ine iNorsn riatte orchestra was on hand and they tripped the light fantastic until the wee small hours of the morning. We think that a vote of thanks from every person in this neighbor hood should be tendered to Mr. and Mrs. B. for their hospitality. Several parties were present from North Platte among which we noticed Mrs. Dickey and daughter Allie,Mr. Lewis Thoelecke and Miss Bertha. Cbicket. Money to Loan OK' IMPROVED FARMS.

For the past ten days country produce has been in rood supply, with perhaps tne possible exception of eggs, several hundred dozen havincr been imported from Omaha. Our merchants are now paying the following prices: Dalrv but ter 15 a 20; eggs 16: potatoes SOcts: chickens 2.75 per doz; cabbage 75 cts per dozen ; oats 90 cents per hundred. Good, plump, smooth tomatoes are in demand, but poor ones are hardly saleable. The supply of green corn has exceeded the demand, bnt nice sweet corn will find ready buyers. Summer apples are sold at ia.00 per bushel, there being plenty in themarket California peaches are 15 cents per pound, and grapes 20. A good many Texas water melons have been im ported, but they are either too rich for the common blood or the price is too high 50 cents being asked and they do not sell verv raDidlv. The home raised arti cle will be m the market in two weeks. New hay sells on the street at $5.00 per ton by the load. Not much wheat has yet been brought in, but the price for No. 2 is 52 cents. The price of wheat is like ly to fluctuate considerably during the season, but this market will very likely be governed by the price of flour. Messrs.

While the General was not like Logan aad some others so per sonally popular witn private soldiers, standing more upon his military dignity, he was nevertheless respected by the men because of his fighting and soldierly qualities. He was in the western army up to the fall of 1863, aad the writer fre quently saw JiimV before he occupied a higher position than a division command er. While he was imperious aad a strict disciplinarian, he had, the reputatioaat that time of looking carefully after the comfort of his men. He was a soldier of the West Point school, obeying orders from higher authority without question, and requiring as prompt and unquestioned ooeuience vo jus own. rr iui - a strong l a 9 -r . - sen-wui ana comoaave, no learaea irom did not arrive in Washington in time to do any good, the conference committee having already acted on the measure.
