Lyn. WALLACE. We understand the North Platte ball club will bring suit against the Wallace club for running away with North Platte's half of the last day's gate receipts, and that a counter suit will be brought to compel the Hubites to pay the board bill of the Wallace scorer and manager. Better call it even, boys The liquor case mentioned Inst week did not come to trial. It is a matter of regret to all law-abiding citizens that this farce was ever enacted, as it looks as though the temperance people of Wallace has made an attempt to suppress liquor selling and failed miserably. The truth of the mat ter is that they have brought no such action as yet. They never had any knowledge of the action taken, directly or indirectly, untii ' the serving of the subpoenas. It now remains for the tem perance workers to begin an earnest, united effort to effectually eradicate the the illegal traffic and see that future actions are not a repetition-of last week's move. Wallace Herald. Sidney. From the Telegraph. A copy of the Kimball Observer reached this office Thursday with a bed bug neatty enclosed. Please keep your bugs at home, Mr. Beard ; we do not wish to mix the pure blooded specimens in our own shop with a common breed such as you sent. E. M. Mancourt received a telegram Tuesday evening announcing the sudden death of Mrs. Kinney, Mrs. Mancourt's mother, at Sandusky, Ohio. Mrs. Kinney visited in Sidney a few week ago and was at that time in good health. Mr. and Mrs. Mancourt took the flyer Tuesday night for the east. Rev. Ferguson, the Methodist pastor, and family will move to North Platte next week where Mr. Ferguson will make bis home. He has concluded to retire from the ministry, in which he has been engaged twenty-eight vears, his health being so poor that he does not feel able to undertake another vear's work. Mr. Ferguson's pulpit will not be supplied until after the Minden conference in Sep tember. A petition is being circulated asking the commissioners to submit to a vote of tho people a proposition as provided bv aw allowing the county to pay one dollar for coyote and three dollars for gray wolf and mountain lion scalps. Since the ranee cattle have been taken out of the county the small stock men are heavy sufferers from the depredations of wolves. The adoption of tho proposi tion would give many of the settlers an opportunity to the winter. earn a few dollars during Stockville. From the Faber. A little less than $200 is still necessary to insure the building of the new M. E. church at this place. We hope that amount will speedily be made up. The campmeeting, at Bartley, this year, has been a remarkably pleasant affair. The attendance has been large, the order has been the very best, and although the number of convertions was not so very large, the influence of such quiet, yet earnest meetings are always very exten sive and endearing. 'Mr. M. J. Sloat has the newly estab lished mail route from Curtis to North Platte, which makes two trips per week, leaving Curtis on Tuesday and Friday mornings and returning the next day. Mr. Sloat will drive in a covered rig and the passenger rate will be reasonable. Cattle buyers are already on the go in Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado, but the ranchmen are as wide-awake to the effect of our extraordinary large crops as the buyers, and are holding for higher prices than they can get at present in Omaha, Kansas City or Chicago. We have the corn and hay to feed thousands of cattle more than there are in the slate Hence the number fattened this year will be greatly in excessof last year. It has been a "sorry" looking sight to see the long faces in town when the refusal to register the precinct bonds by the state auditor was read last Friday evening. But with true heroic zeal and enthusiasm quite a number of our citizens galhered at tho clerk's office and after a few short speeches it was decided that it would be tetter to have bonds drawn no after the auditor's own plan and call a new election, than to attempt to force the registration of the bonds by mandamus proceedings. Acting upon this plan the call was issued by our honorable board of commissioners for a new election. It is earnestly and sincerely hoped, by all who have the best interests of our town and county at heart, that there will not be a single vote against tho bonds. MadricL From the News. W. C. Lemon and wife of North Platte passed through Wednesday enroute home from a visit to relatives north of Grant. Perkins county is a thing of beauty and a joy forever. The eastern man as he walks through the forests of sod corn waving a dozen feet above his head and borrows a step ladder to get an ear with which to feed his team, wonders if God ever made a prettier landscape, a more fertile soil, or a more pleasant place for man to dwell. Last Saturday evening, one of the heav iest rain storm of the season swept over this country. Between this place and Grant and south and south-west from here hail fell in great quantities inflicting serious damage on the growing crops. The affected district is not very large and the rain settles beyond doubt the corn crop. H.Emerson, connected with the Lin coln Land Co., brought in some land seekers Monday evening and piloted them around over some of Perkins county soil. Mr. Emerson states that every measure possible is being taken by the company to make the excursion to this place Sep tember 28th a success. We will sav that the people of Madrid are doing likewise and propose to continue. Plum Creek. From the Pioneer. A very unfortunate and probably fatal accident happened to a young man named David Tyler, aged about twenty years, on Tuesday afternoon last. He was engaged with others in stacking grain and in slid ing from the stack to the ground came in contact with a pitchfork which was lean ing on the stack with the tines on the ground. The tines of the fork penetrated the rectum four or five inches, came In contact with the spinal column, which pitched the young man forward on his face. Drs. Rosenberer and Bancroft have been attending the case and the latter in- brmed a Pioneer reporter this morning that the case is critical. Mr. Tyler is a very fine young man and is held In high esteem by his associates. A shooting affray took place on Satur day last which very nearly resulted in oss of human life. From what we could glean of the affair it appears that L. M. McMinn, a oung married man, occupied tho house of Richard. Durham in Logan precinct, north of Overton. Durham desired McMinn to vacate the premises and in the controversy over the matter the latter struck Durham in the face. his so enraged him that he drew a six- shooter and turned loose on McMinn who at once made himself scarce as fast as his legs would cam' him. Three shots were fired we are told, only one of which touched the person of McMinn, striking him on the collar of his shirt, through which it plowed a furrow and burning his neck it as passed. Half an inch or so further in would have severed the jugu lar. A warrant was sworn out and Durham was arrested in this city in the evening, taken before Judge Peirce where he waived examination and was placed under $1,500 for his appearance at the next term of the district couit. R. F. James, J. H. McColl and J. S. Thomas are his bondsmen. a. D, Bcckwoth, Jab. Suthxbland, FreeideBt. Cashier. Stete Bank of North Platte NORTH PLATTE, NEB. DliOQTaxLt Grood. 2Tots, t.jcan osa.

Hoagland of North Platte was in town last Saturday. Squire Pevey of Lincoln coun(y dropped in and shook hands this morn ing. About a dozen of our democratic friends are sporting republican hats on our streets. That is right boys, glad to see you coming over. There was a good turn out to the re publican rally Saturday evening. Hon. J. S. Hoagland addressed the audience on the tariff question in a rattling good speech. In the suit of Simons & Co. vs. Abe talmer, a verdict of $167 and cost was given the plaintiffi. Morrison & Sawyer attorney's for plaintiffs, H. M. Grimes for defendant. Gothenburg1. From the Independent. Hay making is now the order of the day. D . A. SIcCurdy is now boss of the Ar nold mail route. The republicans are again discussing the organization of a club at this place. John O. Sullivan, the man shot at this place two weeks ago, is rapidly recover ing. The musical "yelp" of the cayote osuld be heard in the hills northwest of town last Sunday night. Messrs. Abercrombie and Loan have already cut and stacked the hay from about 200 acres of the land on Brady Island. The fine weather of the past week has given the farmers a chance to stack their wheat and oats, and now the threshers are getting in their work. The farmers never tire of talking about the big corn crop they are going to har vest thia fall. It is claimed that the quality of the wheat raised on the table lands this sea son Is better than that of the valley. Though there is an excellent yield of wheat the quality of the grain is not generally first-class and the shrinkage- in preparing it for milling purposes will be great The yield of good wheat will, howevervbo about as much or more than the entire yield last year. A great deal of the late wheat was damaged by rust. A would-be burglar "attempted to break into D. Daggett's hardware store, one night last week, but made a noise suffi cient to awake Mr. Daggett, who sleeps in the store. Mr. D. arose, but owing to the darkness in the room he in turn struck something which friehtened the burglar, who took leg bail, Mr. D. readi ng the door just in time to see him dis appear in the darkness. Buffalo BUl's Grand Reception. The grand reception accorded to Colonel W. F. Cody (Buffalo Bill) on Decoration Day in New York, when twelve miles of dense humanity rolled its plaudits along before him, when he shared the honors of tho day with the president of the nation and military heroes of renown, a reception duplicated daily at Staten Island, culminated last Monday in a spontaneous outflow of enthusiasm from fourteen thousand (14, 000) admirers In the Quaker City. The public's pleasure was heartily manifested at the return of the frontiersman and-his two-year-old campaigners from triumphs abroad, in a manner that might well arouse the envy of any potentate or prince of Europe, or any statesman or political aspirant in America. More 'remarkable and betler too than a set da' of tribute, is the fact that through increasing numbers appreciation the opening scenes have been excelled during the week. Ameri cans thus show discrimination, and give ample proof of admiration for those whose motto is "to do or die," to accom plish in their sphere, however humble, something for the cause of education, and credit for our country abroad. The efforts of Colonel Cody to depict the phases of western life, that has figured so closely in every foot of land on this continent in its reclamation from savag ery, in a picturesque manner, being well appreciated, and in the history of those efforts it is notable that Philadelphia was the first to respond with encouragement. Now this fast passing feature of America -the frontier and its life is no more. and after the present exhibition by Buffalo Bill it will be relegated to the future traditions, to the actor, to the historian, to the romancer, the novelist, the poet, the sculptor and the painter.

B.Austin was overseeing the work on Car & Fleming's brick block on Tuesday afternoon when a board on which he stepped broke, causing him to fall through the building to the ground floor, a distance of 27 feet He struck on some inch boards laid on some joists with so much force that the boards were broken. The unfortunate man when picked up was insensible and but little hope was entertained of his recovery. In the evening he began to rally under the treatment of Drs. Bancroft and Brown, and the following morning remembered something about his fall. Plum Creek Gazette. The good news comes from the Yellow stone National Park that there are still a few hundred buffaloes and several thousand elk, deer, and mountain sheep left in the Rocky Mountains.
