The "Kicker" of the Era exhib its the latter portion of his anatomy to a greater advantage than his ears. Ed Loveland sold his farm south of town Monday to J. C. Wood, who has been living on the Hall ranch. Yesterday County Judge Ray married Ulysses "W. Wasley, of Moorefield, to Anna Z. Burr, of Brady Island. John "Weinberger has purchased the Campbell property in the Third ward and ma' now smoke his pipe at eventide beneath his own vine and plum tree. The Chappell Register denies that there has been a revival meet ing this winter in that village, and places the scene of John Keith's coal rustling story at Big Springs. Cigar maker Schmalzried has had his squaw painted up in true American style by painter Ham mond, and the old girl now looms up more resplendent than ever be fore. Con. F. Scharman. prepared to write your insurance for you in first class companies at reasonable fig ures, 11133 be found at all times in his rooms two doors west of Mc Donald's store. - Did you ever have a job done at C. Newman's shoe shop. If not come and tr- him. Shoes and boots made to order. All kinds ot Repairing a special ty. Spruce street., opposite Dr. Dick's drug store. The severe frosts this winter is causing the slagolithic sidewalks about town to "heave" quite per-ceptibl-. "With the exodus of the frost it is doubtful if they will re sume their original shape. Deput Sheriff Keliher returned from Omaha yesterday morning bringing with him the flitting cigar maker J. W. Campbell who will have to stand a trial upon a charge of obtaining money, upon misrepresentations. J. C. Orr was discovered Satur day in close consultation with con tractor R. D. Thomson, and the probabilities are that soon the sound of the hammer and saw will be heard on West Fifth street upon the Minshall property recently pur chased by Mr. Orr. The count' physician of F ren tier county was in the city yester day loitering about the jail trying to discover the condition of their man Kopple, although he skipped out suddenly for home without waiting to see Sheriff Miller who at the time was engaged with court duties. The division freight agent of the Union Pacific who was here yesterday reported that his com pany had transported 5,000,000 pounds free of relief goods; and he considered the seed problem to be one of greatest importance which confronts the people of this part of the country. Geo. C Stoddard, secretary of the connty relief committee, last week received a draft for some thing over S200 from the charitable citizens of Mexico. Mo. The peo ple there had collected a large lot of miscellaneous supplies which they were ready to forward, but upon the advice of the secretary sent the money instead. A gentleman in this city re ports that it is now safe- for coal trains to stop at Ogallala, thanks to the missionary efforts of Rev. D. W. Crane. If this is true the lat ter gentleman -has accomplished wonderful results; yet there is a great opportunity for him to do good in various hamlets along the Nebraska division of the Union Pacific railway. Colonel Cody finds that the work of advertising the destitution in Nebraska has been so thoroughly done on lower Broadway, New York by means of flaming canvas signs, that it would be hard to pawn the whole state in a limited district there for a ten-dollar bill. If our people ever needed the services of an active, aggressive, intelligent board of immigration, they will nsed such a board during the coming vear. Lincoln Journal. Col. Joe O'Rourke, of Cotton wood, is in town to-day. Asked as to how they were getting along with their big" ditch, he replied that they had removed about one-half the required dirt, and that ten miles of the ditch was practically completed. When it is considered that all the excavating has been done by scrapers, and that the horses employed have been in poor condition, the progressive and persevering spirit of the stock holders of the ditch is apparent. They have met with many difficul ties and drawbacks, but they are determined to finish the ditch or perish in the attempt. To restore gray hair to its natural color as in youth, cause it to grow abundant and strong, there is no better preparation than Hall's Hair Reucwer. Ed. Davis has in a crop of out door lettuce. A couple of false alarms stirred up the fire department Friday night. ' A light epidemic of whooping cough is keeping many of the small children out of school. Don't forget to attend Gen. Thayer's lecture on Grant at Keith's opera house on Friday evening, March 1st. Take your best girl, or some other fellow's, and attend the last dance before the Lenten season at the opera house to-night. Read Broeker's big ad on the first page and then don't send your money out of town in order to se cure a misfit suit of "hand-me-downs." Postmaster Clair has a young mastiff, somewhat smaller than a lion, in the postoffice which is liable to prove troublesome to meddlers about the place. The Hotel Neville's Sunday dinner proved a great success and many of our people availed them selves of the invitation to procure a square meal at a reasonable price. The water pipe along a por tion of West Front street has been frozen for some days past, thus inconveniencing consumers. The waterworks company had the diffi culty remedied. There is no longer any occa sion for you sportlets to go around with a chrysanthemum head of hair, a la Oscar Wilde, when Doc. Size more will skillfully perform the necessary amputation for 25 cents, in any style you may desire. - -The agricultural society of Lin coln county should prepare their crop premiums at once so the farm ers may make preparation. After the exhibit has been made the im migration society can use the pro ducts to an excellent advantage. The bicycle bloomers have made their appearance upon our streets and they will soon be all the rage. First the females wanted our bal lots, now they have taken our breeches, and we don't know but what they are entitled to both. The Tribune has been re quested to announce by a member of the M. E. church in this city that the local organization disclaims any responsibility for the conduct of the M. E. relief store in this city. The contributions are- consigned to Rev. Leonard, and by him dis bursed. Lincoln county is going into irrigation more extensively than any other locality in the state. A large and handsome township map of the county has just been com pleted, showing every mile of ditch now finished. In length it amounts to 150 miles, and each mile will irri gate 1,000 acres. Bee. Gen. Joh n M. Thayer, ex-governor of Nebraska, will deliver a lecture upon the life of Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, at Keith's hall next" Fri day evening, March 1st, for the benefit of S. A. Douglas post, G. A. R., of this city admission 25 cents. He should, and doubtless will be, greeted with a crowded house. We learn that the subject is: "Personal reminiscenses of Gen. Grant during the earlier part of the war, hitherto unpublished," I. A. Fort has a number of copies of the official proceedings of the Third National Irrigation Con gress, held at Denver last fall, and a monograph upon "Alfalfa, How and Where to Grow It," by Chas. W. Irish, of the Agricultural de partment, which parties may ob tain by enclosing postage or calling upon him. This office wishes to express its acknowledgments to Geo. R. Hammond for late copies of Texas papers. The probabilities now are that George will locate at some point in the sunny south as yet un decided, and after experiencing his first attack of fever and ague will wish he was back in Nebraska.4 However, there is nothing like ex perience,and what is North Platte's loss will be a gain for some south ern community. -Kearney is now paying interest upon her bonded indebtedness at the rate of $47.18 per day. This outside of her official salary lis and daily expense of $11 for electric lights. The celebrated .Kearney, gait js rather expensive and should not be patterned after by North Platte and smaller cities who are unable to trot in this rapid class. There are financial breakers ahead for the Cotton city. That the public generally ap preciates The Tribune's efforts to give it a wide awake, up-to-date newspaper is best evidenced by the unanimity with which the people are registering upon its subscrip tion list. This, too, in spite of the snarlings and winnings of an en vious contemporary whose little coterie of readers are but occasion ally surprised with an item of news which has not previously beea pub lished in North Platte papers. NOTICE. To the Graduating Class of '95 I will give as a prize a $15.00 Diamond Ring to the one who will write the best "ad" for this space advertising my store and goods; each ad to be in this space, until all have been published. A committee of three business men will be appointed to judge who is entitled to the prize. All must be handed in by March 11 th. Call at. the store for instructions. Ring will be placed in window. ' ' CLINTON, THE JEWELER. CHICAGO'S BOARD OF TRADE. Mr.. BoABDjOF TRADE,OF THE ClTY ) CmCA'GorFeb'y 23, 1895. ) Dear Sir: Members of the Chicago Board of Tnide, and' of other business or ganizations ofithie city, propose, as far as. practicable, to provide seed wheat, corn and oats to persons unable to pur chase their ottn supply and to such per sons only, the-same to be a loan to.be re paid on harvesting the prospective crop, and to be secured bv note and mortgage on such crop: 'r We" trust that with the efforts of other, organizations and com mittees, material assistance may.be given drouth-stricken sufferers. This methodthas been adopted after deliberation and correspondence with cit izens of your state who have invariably expressed the wish that it be done in this way. To this end, and that the com mittee appointed bv the Board of Trade may act intelligently, any county needing this assistance should organize for the purpose of receiving, distributing and properly handling supplies, and should designate some one railroad station as a receiving and distributing point. We address you, believing you are in a position to know the needs of your coun ty, and that you will gladly bring this matter to the attention of your business men and all interested. We assume that such counties as desire this aid will or ganize, and reaaest that you notify Mr. Geo. F. Stone,, Sec'y of the Board of Trade, not later than Mar. 5th, as to the fact of Such organization and particulars as to its method ot operation; also esti mated requhements of grain for its coun ty, atd what aid, if any, will.be furnished by you r otate, or'frbm any other source. It is hardly necessary to add that such organization do of the highest character, and be properly certified to this commit tee. We have- sent a like letter to all the banks of your place. lours respectfully, X. T. Wright, Geo. Marcy. Henry Bots ford, M. Cudahy, John Dupee, J. Hen ry Norton, H. W. Rogers, Win. H. Bartlott, Chas. B. Congdon, Board of Trade Com. In conformity with the above cir cular the county relief committee met yesterday- and it was agreed that the chairman be authorized to select some person to go to Lincoln and see just what the state will do in regard to paying the freight upon the seed. John E. Evans, deputy secretary of state, could probably ascertain this information much more readily,than any other individ ual, and without any expense. The great majority of people, farmers and all classes, seemed to think the above proposition a more feasible plan than' to'attempt to vote bonds for this- purpose. 1. . , H' r - , Beginning torday the provisiou department of the county relief store -will only, be able to issue flour and molassesto such as need, the othpr suppliea- having become ex hausted.. In view of-the fact that a bliz zard has recently swept-over our southern sister state Georgia, the Fremont Tribune generously pro poses that the people of Nebraska who lately received the train load of corn donated by charitable Geor gians shonld'at once shell the same and return the cobs to the latter for fuel. To-morrow according to agree ment the Methodist churches throughout Nebraska will gener ally trythe efficacy of prayer as a rain-prpducef. Let us hope that it will prove art exemplification of the idea tnat the prayers of the right eous avaijeth . much. " However, observer Piercy now has an oppor tunity to obtain a scoop upon the brethren by bringing about a reg ular old trirsh-removing, ' gulley washing flood in advance of their efforts, and' we will guarantee him they will not-become offended. S. W. Van Doran is up at Her shey this week plastering some houses for the. Paxton & Hershey Irrigation Co., and thereby hangs a tale. It appears that Samuel had been drawn upon the jury for this term of the district court. He is an active member of the city fire department, 'and knew something more or .less, of the Heck case, which had, the first call yesterday morning; either of which facts would iave excused him from sit ting as a juror on the case. With this knowledge he-trusted to Sheriff Miller to gei him excused from duty. The-latter, knowing-that Judge Ne ville would b' cognizant of the cir cumstances' -agreed to" make the excuses for-the'tnissing juror. Jacob had forgqUen.liowever, that Judge Sinclair was jtor.preside at the pres ent session and he, had some diffi culty in convincing the latter that everything was not all right, and to prevent him from sending a bench .warrant after Samuel for contempt. The writer remembers an amusing little episode some years ago wherein ex-Judge Hamer, the sitting judge (who was then district prosecutor) and himself were playing star roles; and in view ot the happy termination of that affair had Judge Sinclair thought proper to impose a fine upon this absent juror we would have felt it a dutv to condole, with the latter.

Queen Lil is evidentally about to drown her sorrows in the flowing bowl, for yesterday conductor Hast ings had in his train four cars of beer consigned to Honolulu.

This office is under obligations to J. J.

Clinton, the jeweler, has something- to say elsewhere in this paper to the members of the graduating class of the High school for the year '95 which will prove of interest to them. The ducks and geese passing northward in great numbers at the present time is good indication of an early spring, and only corrobor ates the sapient evidence of the ground hog.

A recent ruling of the pension department will undoubtedly fill a long felt want among the rules and regulations that hedge the old soldier pensioner round about. This ruling is in substance that pensioners who are deaf should not walk on the railroad tracks and are injured because thereof, there is no one to blame for the injury ex cept themselves. Pensioners who are deaf or expect to become deaf in the near feature should secure a copy of this ruling and past it in side of their hat bands for easy re ference. Exchange. . CRHI.N. Write T. P.
