Paete ud EvMirUoh Pitte that tke Jjutitrntitibi'DeMrrN oir Sipport- The North Platte Young- Men's Chrislian Association held anniver sary services at the -Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon, a fair audience being; present. After selections by the Y. M.G. A. male quartette, which' were' pleasing; follwed by prayer, -Rev: Leonard gave a very interesting talk on ,4Hbw to reach young Men and Save them to the Church." The speaker suggested a number of ways in which young men could be induced to attend church services. They should be treated cordially by the church members, should be given an opportunity to assist in the various branches of church work, and should be given evidence that such work is appreciated. He had found it a good plan to prepare and preach a . sermon occasionally for the benefit of vouncr men. The Elders remarks were particular per tinent to the occasion.

During the year there were 45 business meetings held, of which .31 were committee meetings, 12 board meetings, and 2 association meetings. The reading room and library shows up well. During the year there were 2,842 books drawn from the library, and 3,084 newspapers sent out to section men and others along the line of the- road. There are l.bzo volumes in me iiorary, and the papers and periodicals reg ularly received consist of 14 maga- mm m . " "1 zines, v aaiiy papers, 14 in-weeK-lies and 23 weeklies. There were 2,211 letters written in the rooms during the year, 2,004 of the number being written at the free correspondence table. Fifteen men were -directed to boarding houses, 24 were financially assisted and positions secured for 4 applicants. One lecture, 3 practical talks and three receptions were given during the year. The total baths taken were 6,108. r rr 1 . i or an average or per weeK aay. A well organized ladies' auxiliary has contributed materially to the success of the association. Forty-six gospel meetings were held during the year, the total at tendance at which was 1,858. Eigh teen special prayer services were held. Thirteen persons professed conversion and 31 united with the several churches. About 3,500 pieces of printed matter were distributed during the year. The secretary made 255 calls 'to the railroad shops and yards, made 23 calls on sick and injured persons, 49 calls on business men, and 108 on members of the various' committees- Twelve letters of introduc tion were given and 10 received. The grand total attendance at the rooms for all purposes during the year was 39,069. The receipts for the year were: Baths $23.70, membership dues $444.95, subscriptions $549.50,dona tion $104.55, ladies aid society of the Presbyterian church $25.00, ladies auxiliary $43.10, railway company $558.00 grand total receipts $1758.85. The expenses, including rent, fuel, secretary's salary and the many incidentals, amounted to $1755.05. There is, however, about 120.00 due on the salary of the pre sent secretary, to meet which there is uncollected dues and subscrip tions amounting to about 200.00. Under ordinary times this might be collected, but at present it is com ing in very slowly. The condition of the association, considering the dull times of the past year, is very gratifying. That the association is doing good work is evidence by the attendance at the rooms. That its influence religiously has been an unqualified success is attested by the conversions and the men who have joined the churches through its instrumentality. The Tribune is a firm friend of the Y. M. C. A. and believes the good in fluence it has exerted during the past year cannot be estimated by dollars and cents. North Platte could not afford to do, without the association throught its cost was three times as great, Secretary Hollingsworth is a hard year than aririgtheMtjkf Majce tfesolutiohl tada tha-wm work for the interests of tterasso-': r ciktiori during the coming dsfty -two weeks. STILL TALKHG S0H00L HOUSE- " . Editor Tribune:-! wish to make known a few facts prior-to getting: out a petition to vote bonds for a High school building. The high school located in Keith's hall has an attendance of 120, three j teachers. The High school build ing is now used as an intermediate between the ward schools" and the High school, children attend it from the three wards, three rooms are occupied and has three' teachers. There are "three ward -schools with three teachers each. There is one school house south of the river well fitted up and seated for thirty pupils but only eleven attend and one school house west of town about Jive mile's; Cbnse ouentiv our schools are very "much scattered and ought to b?cMicen- trated for various reasons p3. It would be well to set jgp sbuth of the river into a separa'district; it is six miles east andes and contains about sixteen sections of land which with the personal prop erty is assessed at about$25,000, which at two per cent raises $500, which is just about the. cost per year of the school, consequently it would be no pecuniary benefit to us to hold it. Then they wouldhave the benefit of the school money. They might have some capable young lady who could iHeach the school for them, but now they 4iave ' to pay taxes sufficient to run - their school, out nave not a wora to say in reference to the teacher. Our board sends them a teacher who is entirely independent of them. And when irrigation ditches are in work ing order they will have a great deal more wealth and people. tVheu ever our superintendentvisijts that school the city schools losfe his ser vices for one day. . jV ' NOw 'asfTEgardV tip scww5ff?ne city, if we could conc&ntfhteHill the children at one pla"ce,"excepting the Third ward primary (the railroad being a barrier) the vl16le school system wduld be right "under the eye of Professor Barber, ; when he could use' his fcead to conduct the schools instead of his legs.as he is now compelled to do. The First and Second ward school houses might be closed temporarily. The cost of operating tone large building would not be near as much as now operating three, for one janitor would be sufficient, and slack coal could be used to make steam with. We ought to have a school house that would accommodate 700 child ren, which is not large, as in cities east they have school houses which hold twice that number.. We must f anticipate and not commit the blun der that was committed in building the Third ward school house. As far as I am concerned it is a matter of indifference where the High school building is constructed, oniy'place it in the most convenient 'place for the children.. I would favor ;thei Third ward ifjisas.conyenient as south of the railroad track, for, the preponderance of public build ings is on the south "side,.

Either a High school house must be built, or there will have to be three rooms added to the Third ward school house, and one each to the First and Second ward school houses. There are 168 children attending the Third ward school, and only three rooms, and a large number at tending the High school house. It is safe to put the school children in that ward at 250: Quite a number of our people think it would be wasteful to pull down the old building, for which rea son they arelukewarm about voting bonds. A committee of ourarchi- tects-and builders could be employed to examine the building, and if they pronounce it safe,"thcrr -ther-main building could be made to face Fourth street, and make three fronts tc the buildinir. The base- ment of the present building would be just the place to locate the boiler for heating the buildings. Without anv instruction I would be willinir to leave it to the school board to do the best possible in the premises. In the article week before last which put Mr. Finn's extra tax at eight cents, should have been eighty cents. There should be no misstate ments. James Belton. HtEIGATION H0TE8. At Greeley Col., it will take five months to ship out their crop of potatoes and they are loading and shipping eighty car loads every day. We can do better than this at North Platte in another year. Articles of incorporation of an other irrigation company in Daw son countv have been filed in the office of county clerk Lantz, The new company will be known as the Cozad Irrigation Company with an authorized capital stock of one hun dred thousand dollars, and will practically use the route known as the MacColl ditch, which was abandoned in 1891. Gothenburg Independent. Desirable as it is that the stars and stripes should float respected from the mastheads of numerous $3,000,000 ironclads, there is no good reason why one-third or one sixth of the cost of one Avar vessel should not be devoted to purposes of peace in investigating the under ground flow and methods ot water salvage in the semi-arid regions. Sideney Telegraph. The effect of the state irrigation convention at Kearney is already felt in our county. Irrigation has thereby received new impetus, and everybody who can is preparing to go to work, and construct irrigation works of some kind. This part of the state by the time the state con vention meets in Sidney will no doubt have something to show in the way of irrigation enterprises. Ibid. Mr. Stapletoa, of Omaha, repre senting a great deal of land in the counties west of us, as well as in Holt, was in town and tells us that he wants water for all their land under the plan of the irrigation company. He thinks this is going to be a great thing for the loan companies that were forced to take land, and instead of losing on their holdings, as they anticipated, they believe that with a water right and a chance to get water on the land they will realize a profit instead of a loss. O'Neill Frontier. An irrigating canal that will prove of benefit to a number of Lincoln county people is thus men tioned by a Gothenburg paper: "The 'Williams ancf Marcqtt irriga tion ditch was 'started last Monday. Mr. Lee Arnet put a New Era gra der to work for them last Saturday and Monday the boys went to work in earnest, Rumor has been cir culated that the parties contem plating the building of this ditch were working to sell out and it would never be built, etc. Such stories as these are always put about by op position parties and should not have any credence whatever. This, today, is the most practical ditch in Dawson county and when com pleted will have more fine land under it than any other irrigation enterprise in the county. The men who are at the head of this enter prise are rustlers, good and strong, financially, Mr. Williams alone be ing able to construct the entire ditch. Every citizen in this town should do all he can to further this enterprise, for the completion of this ditch will be worth thou sands of dollars to Gothenburg. "Every citizen should appoint him self a committee of one to do all in his power to help secure the right of way for these gentlemen and give them a chance to push the work toward completion as fast as pos sible." At the late meeting of the Ne braska Dairymen's association J. H. Rushton, superintendent of the Fairmont creamery thus discussed "Alfalfa as a Forage Crop for Ne braska Dairymen." He thought that alfalfa was the "something green" that everybody-was looking for during the drouth. The neces sity for a new forage crop is more marked in the middle of the state thatf-m'the eaaternv Thraiyowii-? to the distribution of rainfall or rather to the way in which it is con served, and would be sufficient to raise crops even in a dry year. By deep plowing he thought the pre sent rainfall in Nebraska could be conserved, and would be sufficient to raise crops, even in a dry yean Alfalfa has a tap root which pumps up both moisture and plant nourish ment from a considerable distance below the surface. The average distance penetrated by a plant in one year is a foot. In planting it for hay sow as much as twenty to thirty pounds to an acre, less for pasturage. It must be of put down about two inches. Drilling in both in directions about four inches apart is recommended. Too much must not be expected the first year. As hay, three to five tons an acre and five to ten bushels of seed should be secured. The uplands raise alfala well.
