Information, reached this city
Wednesday of the death at Norfolk,
this state, of Joseph Falls, formerly
of North Platte. For many years
his was a familiar figureabout the
railroad yards and shops in this
city. A few years ago he had his
feet severely frozen, and subse
quently became deranged, when he
was taken to the hospital for the
insane at Norfolk. Hewas, an in
dustrious good citizen, who hack
many friends among his associates.

Within, a short time the beaut
ful park surrounding the division
superintendent's office will perhaps
be christened the "Dillon Memorial
Park." The reason therefor is the
fact that arrangements -are being
made for the placing, therein of a
splendid stone bust momfment of
the late Sidney Dillon. Kbr some
time past the relatives anc friends
of the deceased have been contem
plating this plan, which will be
completed as soon as the other im
provements now in progress at the
park are finished. We believe the
work will be done by a Lodge Pole
sculptor who has patterned after a
model furnished by a New York

widower forty-five years of age,
having one daughter who' is" now
almost grown. For a number of
years he homesteaded upon a claim
south of Paxton, upon which he
made final proof and is still owned
by his heirs. At the time of his
death he was carrying S4.000 in life
insurance in the A. O. U. W. and
Maccabee orders, of which he was
a member. He was also a member
of the Odd Fellows' organization,
by which society he was buried, as
sisted by the other lodges to which
he belonged. The funeral services
occurred yesterday afternoon at
2:30 o'clock, and were largely at
tended in spite of the threatening
in Indies' Blouse Waist Sets, very pretty, not
expensive; also a new line of Cheap Belts and Belt
. Pins,. Side-Combs, Hair Ornaments, and the new
Long Watch-chains. It you want anything in the
way of a neat little present for some one, you can
find it in our line of novelties, from 25 cents to

The city fire department had
an animated meeting last mgnt
which came near terminating in a
small sized scrimmage. The trou
ble originated over the attempt of
a portion of the members to force a
selection of chief, although this
object had not been stated in the
published call. A motion to ad-
ourn was made, which was finally
adopted by the very narrow mar
gin of two votes. It is said the
oratory indulged in was of a very
urid and pyrotechnic character.
According to the figures pro
mulgated by Joe Edgerton, "pop"
clerk of the bureau of labor and in
dustrial statistics, as published in
the State Journal, the farm mort
age record for the year ending
May 31st, 1895, shows Lincoln
county to have filed 5158,046.98,
and satisfied but S62.519.53. Cer
tainly there is some mistake in
these figures, as from a hasty ex
amination of the table this appears
to De ttie worst showing made by
any county in the state, which will
not prove true.
Parties who have recently taken
lengthy rides out upon the table
lands, either north or south of town
report themselves as astonished at
the wonderful growth of weeds this
year upon uncultivated spots which
have been barren of vegetation for
the past two or three years. So
great a growth of these pests have
taken place that the farmers are
experiencing a great deal of trouble
in freeing their growing crops from
them. Corn especially is said to be
very foul, while potatoes are com
paratively free from them.
For some time past a portion
of the juvenile population of the
city have been practicing Tyith the
crafty "nigger shooter" upon the
pigeons which are accustomed to
frequent the cupola of the High
school building. Last night police
man Davis captured one of the
young offenders against the city's
ordinance, escorted him to the jail
and gave him his choice to either
quit the practice or lodge behind
the bars until hecould have a hear
ing before the police judge. The
little fellow promised to reform and
was allowed to depart, . r ; ,
Just a word with our business
men: xne date nxed tor the meet
ing of the Lincoln Co. Agricultural
Ass'n was yesterday afternoon at 3
o'clock. At that time not enough
of the directors were present to
constitute a quorum tor the trans
action or business, it you are a
member of the association it is to
your interest to get the drones
weeded out ot the management, and
workers put in that will annually
give the people of Lincoln county
an exhibition that will be well
worth attending, and be a source of
profit to the society. It is to the
interest of every man doing- busi
ness in North Platte to see that
this is done; and more especially so
this year in the face of the villian
ous reports that have been gener
ally and industriously circulated in
the east regarding this part of Ne
braska. Besides this it is to your
financial interest to have a great
crowd of strangers within your
gates spending their money for en
joyment and in return for which
they will well advertise your town.
The little town of Red Oak, Iowa,
(scarcely larger than this) has this
week given a proof that-it pays to
have a good race meeting or an
agricultural fair. The opening day
of the races there 10,000 people were
present to see the sport; and this,
too, when no great events were
upon the programme for that day.
North Platte can have in a measure
a similar success by following the
example. See that your fair soci
ety officials get a move upon them- j
bring along- tieirbest sluggers and
make the home' team wear them
selves out chasing the horsehide
the crowd witf. Highly appreciate
the sport.
Judging f rbhi the interest taken
in the programnie of sports for the
4th of Julv celebration here those
present will be favored with some
thing good in this line. A number
of our business men are preparing
to recoup themselves for their con
tributions for the occasion, by com
petiting for the prizes offered for
the best decorated float. Taken
all together, if observer Piercy only
does his duty; the day promises to
be unusually well celebrated in
North Platte, and will repay a visit
by those from a distance.
