It is said that among the questions to be asked
by the census enumerators is: "Are you indebted
to your local paper!" Now to be forced to answer
the question in the affirmative would certainly bo
mortifying, therefore it would be well for Tkibunx
delinquents to call and settle before the enumera
tor starts on his rounds, which will be June 2d.
The V. P. conductors who attended the meet
ing of the railway managers at Cheyenne last
week report all grievances on the mountain
division satisfactorily settled. The officers of the

laid over until June 1, when it is believed all
differences will be amicably settled.
The poles on which the fire alarm wire will be
strung are being distributed. The probable loca
tion of the alarm boxes will be as follows: One
near the residence of T. C. Patterson on west
Fourth street, one on east Fourth street, one at

other on north Locust near Yon Goetz's store. It
is expected that the system will be in working
order inside of two weeks.
Hall is an unwelcome visitor to farmers, and
in this county as well as others they have in the
past suffered considerably from it. It is best for
the farmer to have his crops insured, even though
the premiums ore stiff, and to this end we refer
our farmer readers to an advertisement headed
"Iasare your crops against hail." The company
represented by Mr. Patterson is thoroughly relia
ble, aad its plan of doing business very fair.
Last Saturday Mr. Crane's bird dog was taken
sick aad for safe keeping was locked in the coal
house. Early Sunday morning Mr. and Mrs. Crane
west oat to examine the animal's condition, and
jast as they opened the door it sprang out and ran
around the yard frothing at the month and dis
playing other symptoms of hydrophobia. Consid
erably frightened the couple rushed into the house
when Mr. Crane took up his gun and put an end to
the deg's life. It was a narrow oscape as there
was bo doubt but that the dog had hydrophobia.
According to appointment ex-Senator Van
Wyck spoke at the court house Saturday afternoon,
the room beins too small to accommodate the
aaoieace of which farmers composed about half.
Ia his speech the Senator assailed the railroads in
hts usaal forcible manner, alluded at some length
to the silver question and strongly advised farmers
to stick close to the alliance, keep aloof from the
two political parties and elect their own members
of the legislature. During his address, which oc
cupied about an hour and a half, the Senator was
loudly applauded.
Last Sunday night about twelve o'clock a fire
Broke out in the front of Lane's livery barn. The
alarm was given by Mrs. J. M. Marcott and Miss
V) star a Bondrie, who ran to the nearest neighbors
and awakened the men. Before assistance arrived
the are was under too great headway to be checked
sad the entire building and three vehicles were
aesarered. The drug store and residence of J. M.
Marcott being only twenty-five feet south of the
barn was in great danger and was only saved by
i finking- water from the upper windows against the
side Bxt the fire. That wall is badly scorched
aad stalled but not greatly damaged. Mr. Lane's
loss Is about one thousand dollars upon which he
had an insurance of five hundred dollars in the
Phoenix of Brooklyn. There were no horses in
the buiMiag aad bo baggies that were not insured.
The origin of the fire is not known, but is supposed
to have started from the oAce stove. Brady Blada.

Malignant Lying.
The Tribune does not chamnion the
North Platte Club any more than it does
any honorable institution or firm in the
city, but it does protest against the mallg-
nan Mnn mUUI. 1 t .1 I
uaut .iua triiivu iimvtj in uio pasi auu are
still being circulated in regard to the
club. The reDort that liauors are used at
the club rooms is utterly without founda
tion, and any one circulating such reports
maliciously and wilfullv tells an untruth .
The same is so in regard to other state
ments made by the slanderers. The
membership of the club includes a large
majority of our business men. and it is
scarcely possible they weuld retain their
membership did they think the rainrta
clrcalated were correct. But notwith
standing the attacks upon it, the North
Platte Club goes st-adily forward, gain
ing new members each week. .It furnishes
a place of amusement for those who,-were
it not for the club rooms, might possibly
frequent the saloons.

A Pleasaat" Evening.
The ever hospitable Mr. and Mrs . S
Goozee entertained a party of friends
Thursday evening in a very pleasant
manner, leaving nothing undone which
would in any way redound to the enjoy
ment of the guests. The party assembled
early and at once surrounded the card
tables, high-five being, at a majority of
the tables, the garner Refreshments were
served about halfpatt tea, and' a fine lun
cheon it was. After all had their fill the
tables were cleared and the card games
renewed and coatiaaed until twelve
o'clock when the guests took leave of the
couple who had furnished them such a
pleasant evening.
George Ansa! a Charmed.
On the occasion of George Austin's
birthday anniversary Friday, about fifteen
couples of his friends gave him a sur
prise party, and agreat surprise it was.
After Mr. A. bad. recovered his presence
of mind, W. H. Fikes arose and in behalf
of the company assembled presented him
with a handsome watch charm. This se
cond surprise almostkriecked George off
his feet, but he rallied sufficient to thank
his friends for thisevidence of good will.
The guests then? sagaged in the mazy
whirl of the waitzto music furnished by
"dot little German-band." AfteF refresh
ments had been served, the guests de
parted wishing George many returns of
the day. -

Strack Oil.
Last fall a well was bored on the home
stead of Joseph Beuhman, about three
aad a half miles northwest of town. At a
depth of 125 feet water was found. For
a time all seemed well, but the water had
a peculiar flavor to it and later got so bad
that it could not be used, and finally it be
came so disagreeable that stock would
not drink it. Mr. Beuhman cleaned his
well but all to no purpose. The water
continued to get worse . He then hoisted
the water and let it stand in barrels, when
he discovered, to his great surprise, that it
contained oil, and, that be was the owner
of an oil well, equal perhaps to the fam
ous, wells, of the oil regions of the
east. The well will be sunk deeper at
once and the water analyzed. This will
likely prove a great find and all will wait
impatiently for further developments.

every man and woman will be called on
for information of some kind. These
calls will begirt on Monday, the 2d, of
June, and will be completed before Sun
day, June 15. The purpose is to carry
the work forward with every possible
dispatch, and the hope that every man
will be fully prepared to give the infor
mation expected of him. The census in
cludes much more than a mere count of
population. In matter of fact, that is
but an insignificant portion of the work
to be done. The enumeration will in
clude complete statistics of all the indus
tries, professions, trades and institutions
in the country.

Judge Ryland of the Missouri circuit
court some weeks ago charged the grand
jury to take special notice of progressive
euchre and such social games, says a
Kansas City dispatch to the New York
Herald. The judge then went to Pettis

instructions and included in his denuncia
tions the game of "high five" and church
The people of Sedalin laugh over the
judge's action, particularly the members
of the high five club, one of the toniest
social organizations of the city. Hut to
day that laugh has been turned into ex
clamations of terror. The grand jury
yesterday sent out subpoenas for the most
prominent members of the club and to
night the young ladies who were subject
ed to the terrible inquisition of that body
are terror stricken, for in addition to the
fact that they have been compelled to tell
the names of those who participated in
the games they have been sworn not to
reveal any of the secrets of that examina
The ladies at whose houses the club has
held its meetings are in doubt whether
they will be hanged or just sent to the
penitentiary, and some of them have gone
so far as to make preparations to leave
the city.
As there was a notable raffle at a Cath

The cigarette has proved itself as
fatal as "Rough on Rats" in many in
stances. It seems to bo especially dan
gerous to immature boys. Smoking cigars
seems to have few or no harmful effects
on mature persons, but case after case of
cigarette poisoning is reported. Perhaps
moderation would not prove so harmful,
but one of the evils of the cigarette habit
seems to be an uncontrolable tendency to
run into excesses. .
Smokers can always find a good cigar
