Joseph Pillion has secured the. services of Wilads Hanson, who for years was in the employ of Mr. Belton and later with Stewart & Sherman. Mr. Hanson is one of the best all round workmen in the country, and as a plumber is specially pro ficient. Mr. Pillion is determined to sustain his reputation as a plumber, roof worker, etc., by the employment of good hands. Nicholas Beal is a man who has been inclined to take freely of the flowing bowl, and all the sa loons have been warned not to sell him liquor of any kind. But on one or more occasions he has become intoxicated by others procuring the liquor for him. The officers are determined to stop this, and the fellows who are guilty of procuring the liquor f orNicholas will be punished to the extent of the law. They will be caught the next time Nicholas comes to town. Some time since Miss Bertha Thoelecke, be fore her election here, made application to teach ia Omaha. Before teachers are employed in that city ihey must pass a critical examination before a board specially constituted for the purpose of pass ing upon the qualifications of applicants. The thoroughness of the examination may be inferred from the fact that only about 50 per cent of the applicants pass. Miss Thoelecke received a cer tificate, of which she feels justly proud. Frequent efforts have been mado to prevent fast riding and driving through the streets, bat only with indifferent success, and probably efforts will not bo successful until an example is set. A man may be told that it is unlawful to do certain things, bat he may not be able io understand and comprehend the information until he is approach ed through his pocket A fine of ten dollars for instance will open his eyes and comprehension and he will erer after be able to bear the fact in mind. Others will also take warning. MacFlln tz Hall's New York Circus and Bentze Royal German Allied Shows will exhibit at North Platte July 25th. The menagerie contains a fine assortment of wild beasts among them being two elephants which ore introduced during the ring performance and give a fine exhibition. Many great bareback riders, double somersaulters, hur dle sad steeple chasers, wonderful acrobats, ac complished equestrianes and manege riders, awasalrg jockeys, leapers, tumblers, great clownsi contortionists, performing animals, a host of first tlm feats and features. We never change our dates, we never disappoint, we will be with you on day aad date advertised Friday, July 25th. Thx Tbibune toilers, together with eighteen or tweaty other residents, acknowledge the favor of a serenade Friday night by a number of our gentle men vocalists who-procured a four horse convey ance and visited all sections of the city. They were accompanied by the Italian harp and violin players. The songs rendered by the boys were excellent and with more practice they will be able to produce music such as is seldom heard in North Platte. The party was in charge of Arthur Mc Kamara and J. D. Wilson to whom are largely due tho credit of the affair. It is hoped the singers will see fit to soon repeat the serenade. At the meeting last week the council discussed tk question of requiring druggists to keep a reg ister and make a semi-annual report of liquor sold as th law directs. The druggists of this city have aevsr been required to perform this part of the condition upon which they receive permits to sell Masters for medicinal and mechanical purposes. Tho saloon men think that if the Slocumb law is strtsHy enforced on them, the authorities should he aaaally as strict with the druggists. There is a good deal of force in this reasoning, and yet the tisas would seem to be inopportune to commence to h too strict on the subject If the prohibition ent carries we will have free liquor for years anyway; if it does not-carry the re. of the tow will be strictly enforced all the line. It occurs to us that iaasmuch as hare run loosely for so many years, there ' be no impropriety in waiting until after before inaugurating a new policy. sour!

Hershey & Co. shipped four binders Monday and it wasn't a good day for shipping. Owing to the short crop of small grain the demand for har vesting machinery has not been very heavy this season. The Kearney Hub brings out the name of General A. U. Connor, of that city, as a candidate for governor. Gen. Connor is well known throughout the state, and h as many friends in this city. Workmen will soon begin remodeling W. B. Conklln'i residence. A second story will be added and other improvements made. While this work is going on Mr. Conklin and his family will occupy the Foley residence. We were very much afraid North Platte was not to have a circus this year, but it has boon de creed otherwise.

It is rather difficult to determine with whom the fault lies. Sheriff Baker went to Iowa Sunday morning to bring back Aleck McCann, wko about a year ago drove off a team of males on which Wm.

A bold and successful robbery was committed Saturday on the trraln between Norfolk and Creighton. Two thousand dollars expressed by the Norfolk State bank to the Pierce county bank at Pierce was taken from the messenger's strong box during his absence and there is absolutely no clew to the thief. New hay is being brought to town in liberal quantities, the price baled being from 6 to 7 dollars pet ton. Considerable will be shipped west, the present market being Cheyenne and Laramie. Just at present the stock yard in this dty is using a large quantity, as cattle and horses are com mencing to move east and large numbers stop here to eat About 10 o'clock on Friday night tost two horsemen went dashing down Sprnce street as hard as their horses could carry them. They ap peared to be running- a race, one being about twenty feet behind the other. At the corner of Spruce and Fifth streets in front of Baelling's store, the forward horseman came in contact with a wagon driven by Tom Murphy. The horse struck the left hind urheel, which was torn squarely off, the rider being thrown a'rodor more over the horse's head. Young Murphy's horse ran away, and the boy was thrown from the wagon striking oa his left shoulder, receiv ing a severe injury. The fellow riding the for ward horse was said to hare beea a fellow called "fiismark." whe formerly lived over on the Medicine, In the darkness he escaped before he could be arrested. The other horseman also dis appeared and could not be identified. Young prairie chickens are now beginning to roam around and are said to be dangerous animal i to meet on a lonely pralrfo when there is no one around to assist a poor fellow who is walking out for tke benefit of hto health.

Large numbers of Texas cattle are being driven through this county this month. On the north side last week were about one thousand in one bunch, mostly two and three year old steers. They expect to go into the market this fall. The traveling passenger agent of the "(ireat Kock island Home" was in town yesterday advertising the advantages of bis route to those who expect to attend the National Encampment of the G. A. B. to be. held at Boston. It is rather an unusual thing to ship a harvesting machine by express, but Hershey & Co. shipped one to Lexing ton in that manner last Friday. There was urgent need for the harvester and the parties ordering the same could not wait to have it come by freight. The weight of the machine was 1,250 pounds and the rate f 1.00 per cwt. The rustling young farmer down in Well precinct, 6. A. Bacon, had a tussle with Old Sol last week and we regret to say that O A. was "downed." Id other words he was overcome by the intense heat and suffered considerably for a day or two. He if now said to be in a con dition to resume his position in the field of action. The county commissioners after making the levy proceeded to the examin ation of bills. There being a large number this is no small task. A good many have been allowed, others laid over for further consideration and still there are enough to keep them occupied several days. 1 will be glad to have the names of an' who can accommodate one or more teachers during the institute with rooms, or with rooms and board.

Our Wealth. We publish this week an abstract of the assessment of property in this county from wnicn something may be learned by analyzation. There are three banks in .North Platte, and their combiaed deposits are over sauu.UOO, nearly all of wnich is owned in this county. But under oath, the peoplie have returned only $1,328, very good evidence of how poor we are when the assessor is around. But it is not necessary to enlarge on this item; there are many others fully as glaring that will be found by an investigation. Of diamonds and jewelry we have 219. What has become of the $250 rings and breast-pins worn by some of our fast rail road men ? In gold and silver plate and plated ware, the assessors have done pretty well they have found $70o worth. There are 24,000 cattle, nearly 13,000 hogs. 8,797 horses, 899 sewing machines, 108 pianos, aad 165 organs, all of which is a very good showing. Money is the con centrated essence of property, but it escapes taxation almost wholly. Impounded. I have in the city pound a red yearling steer wnose owner is unknown to me. The owner is requested to call. Drove property and take nim away. JSorth Platte, June 30, 1890. A. E. Huntington, City Marshal The billiard tables at the Casino are the best in the city.

First National Bank. good Farmers were busy during the week harvesting rye and barley. Dr. Longley thinks these' two crops on his place will be up to the average. Mr. Osgood has the best rye he ever raised. Wheat as a rule will be light, although there are some exceptionally fine pieces, especially on Morrow flats and along the Medicine. Ud to Monday corn was standing the drought capitally, although there were numerous predictions that "another day would finish it." A half dozen other days came and still corn was all right. With reasonable rains from this on corn will be a fine crop. Potatoes need rain. There is an undoubted falling off of the interest felt in the national game of base ball. We have not had a game in this city during the season, and there is apparently no demand for one. This is not only true of North Platte, the game has fallen into decay throughout the state. The professional clubs are not making any money this year, and several have stranded on the shores of adversity. This feeling may prevail for a year or two when it will revive and become just as strong as ever; but there,will not be near so many professional clubs. When these are driven out the home clubs will be encouraged and appreciated. The alarm bell tower is being torn down and will be erected over the Second vard hose house. The cause leading to the removal is due to a refusal of the city council to pay rent for the ground on which the structure has been standing. The understanding was that there was to be no rent charged, but a letter asking for recompense was sent in at the last meeting of the council and the clerk was instructed to have the tower removed if the trustees of the church insisted on pay. The new tower will stand on bents erect ed in the hose house, the posts being firmly anchored in the ground. An effort will be made to have the tower in a more artistic shape than the old one, about which there was so much fault found. Whether the workmen will be able to accomplish this remains to be seen. The creditors of Pat Walsh have had lively times watching for property of that oily individual. It was a mystery what had become of certain tools and things which had been spirited away in spite of the closest scrutiny. Occasionally from time to time something would be found and pounced upon by a creditor quick as the officers could hustle around. Not long since an attempt was made to ship a box to some one in Washington. Sus picion was aroused tbat.it belonged to rat. it was attached and in It was found Annual Tax Levy.

Want Their Premiums. Ed. Tribune: We notice in your pa- per an announcement of a county fair this fall, and it reminds us of the last fair and its dealings, of which we wish to speak . There was a premium offered for the best display of agricultural products by any one precinct. iMcnois precinct, in tent on starting a precinct library and having products that could not be beaten in the state, made an exhibit that did credit to Lincoln county and more to build up our reputation as a producing county than all the horseracing ever done on the fair ground track, yet the association paid the races, or most of. them, and left the grangers without a cent and they had to pay their own ex penses. .Nichols precinct won S126.00 in pre- miums precinct and invidual premiums besides the premium won by Paxton & Hershey on fat cattle, not included in the above . The sugar beet premium was paid by Mr. Hupfer and that wa3 only premium received in our precinct. Now the question naturally arises, does the fair association expect farmers to take part in the fair by making an ex hibit after such treatment? If they do they will be very much disappointed. Not one of the persons who won a pre mium last fall and failed to get it will make an effort to win a premium this fall. . Kover. A. P. STREITZ Carries a full line of Kicka- apoo Indian Remedies.
