THE - NORTH PLATTE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE: TUESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 25,. 1896. 1 3 CITY NEWS. Editor Brooks, of the Hershey Review is in this city to-day. Weather predictions for this locality are cooler to-night; gener ally fair to-morrow. Geo. E. French returned this morning from Denver' where he had been with his wife in the hope of benefitting her health. Yesterday Harry Rice treated his wife to a handsome new supply of furniture which no doubt is . highly appreciated by that lady. Miss. Lizzie Bratt left this morning on No. 2 for Peru, Neb , where she has accepted a position as instructor in the normal school there. . Mrs. Driggs and grandson, who have been visiting the family of "Warren Lloyd for several weeks, left yesterday morning for their home in Erie, Pa. Remember the republican club meeting at the court house to-night. An interesting and instructive programme has been prepared, and your presence is desired. Young Baskins, Crick, Picard and Sullivan rode on bicycles to Paxton and return yesterday to look over the route of the relay race and to "break in" the "yellow fel lows." The father of Milton Doolittle left Saturday morning for a brief visit in Holt county, and to-morrow will be met by his wife and sister at Missouri Valley. Iowa, from whence they will proceed to their homes in Illinois. Mrs. Kaless and little daughter, late of Signal Butte, Wyo., but now of Grand Island visited the family of L. Thoelecke this week, returning to her home in the Sugar city this morning on No. 2. She was formerly a resident of this city. Rev: Chas. C. Snavely lectured last night at the court house to the teachers in attendance upon the county institute, and again amply demonstrated his ability as a lec turer who is enable to enlist the whole attention of his audience, and maintain it from start to finish. There was a total eclipse of the moon on Sunday night, but as it occurred during "the wee sma' hours ayont the twal," only those of our people whose duties com pelled them to be up all night wit nessed the phenomenon. By those it is reported as having been sur passingly beautiful. Wm. Pulton, of Nebraska City, adjuster of the Springfield ins. Co., arrived in "this city yesterday to settle the loss of Carl Johnson last week by lightning. His com pany together with one repre sented by Lester Eell, had recent .losses in Maxwell by tornado, and together the' went down there this morning to adjust them. Messrs. McCullough and Dolan were the damaged parties. To-morrow evening an enter tainment by Miss McKee will be given at the court house upon phys ical culture and an address delivered thereon which will be elucidated by the various motions of the delsarte movement. This will prove an in teresting subject to the ladies and she will no doubt be greeted with a packed house. Free admission to all and the public generally is in vited. W. R. Kelley, chief solicitor for the U. P., Div. Supt. P. J. Nichols, As'st. W. L. Park, one or two minor legal luminaries, the board of county commissioners, county attorney a.nd sheriff are con ferring together upon the matter of county roads alongside the right of way, with prospects of a compromise of the differences. This morning they took a special train and went down to Brady Island to look over the ground and to decide what was the best for all the par ties interested. . Mrs. Danl. Burke returned last evening from her visit to Schuyler. "Back" Sawyer's injured leg is again giving him trouble, and last night he went to Omaha to endeavor to procure medical relief. Owing to the illness of Paul G. Meyer surveyor Chas. P. Ross is preparing the county road map for the litigation with the Union Paci- nc receivers. The boiler of engine 826 is sup plying the steam these days for the stationary engine at the shops while the boiler thereto is under going repairs. G.D. Chamberlain who returned last week from his six months' visit to Tom Reed's bailiwick, has again reported for duty, and been assigned to engine 632 as fireman. The republican league club is making preparations to take a poll of the entire United States. This is a gigantic undertaking, but when completed will show you how to intelligibly place your money. It is said that the bonds of the Alfalfa irrigation district in Keith county have, been sold to a man named Hurst, of Omaha, who will at once begin the work of construc tion and push it rapidly forward to completion. A fellow gave an exhibition on our streets last night of the anti quated old stone-breaking feat per formed years ago in circuses. He depended upon the charitableness of the spectators for his pa and was poorly rewarded. Railroad business continues good and is slightly increasing. When the receivers get the road thoroughly ballasted and in good shape, and a new depot built at North Platte, they will be ready to turn the property over to the Own ers. As many parts of South Dako ka have prospered under systems of artesian well irrigation some en couragement should be offered by the next Nebraska legislature to experiment in this direction upon the uplands in the western part of the state. The Northwestern Yeast Cos agent is around again with samples of the wonderful Yeast Foam which is better than ever this year owing to the new machinery being used for pressing out the cakes; no excuse for having poor bread when you can get Yeast Foam, good flour and a hot oven. One day last week while Geo. t i- r TTT I t . ourcji, oi wuittier precinct was coming to North Platte with a load of wheat he was held up by a couple of fellows with pistols. He had some $6 in 'his vest at the time of theliold up, but as this gar ment had been laid aside he was unable to produce but ten cents with which to satisfy the bold ban dits, which they declined to take No doubt these knights of the road were practical believers in tree sil ver. The Tribune has learned that there is a disposition on the part of the Uniterian society, of Boston, to supply the North Platte church with a pastor. If the report is true the local organization will want its building for church puposes. Of course this would necessitate the making of other arrangements by the board of education for the grades now taught therein. At the present time the ward schools are already taxed to their full capacity. With this state of affairs it would seem to be the part ot wisdom for the board to make preparations for the calling of a special election lo vote bonds for the building of a suitable house which would relieve the condition of the ward schools for years to come. Such a move will find a ready second by those who have the welfare of the pupils and district at heart. Is all right, but the X dollar bill will buy more Furniture now than ever before. 6 We have an elegant line of PICTURE AND ROOM MOULDING. .

The lecture at the court house Fnda3T evening by Prof. Stableton was largely attended and he suc ceeded in closely enlisting the at tention of his audience by his man ner of handling his subject.

Morth Platte, Lexington and Minnesota Flour. : Mr. and Mrs. Smith Clark, who have been visiting North Platte friends for three weeks, will return to Council Bluffs Thursday, Jack Foster, an old time boiler maker for the U. P., severed his connection wih the company last Friday evening and will devote his time to managing his farm over in Hall precinct. Farmers who have thus early threshed their oats this season complain that the yield is very de ceptive and that the grain will not weigh out by several pounds per bushel. Last year they overran. The Wilcox Dept. Store re ceived line of new shirt waists for fail in Persian patterns and plaids. They are the latest. Joe L. Davis, a car repairer who was injured a number of mouths ago by falling" from a car and had taken a position in the round-house, has been compelled to quit work, not being able to stand the labor. The general complaint this year by consumers of the Lincoln county melon crop is that for some reason or other, although of good size and appearance, the luscious flavor is not so plainly in evidence as in previous years. Everyone who has something of unusual interest or merit should make preparations for exhibiting the same at the Irrigation Fair. If the management has not a class embracing the same, a special one will be made for the article. Mayor Baker, in cutting the weeds and grass in the streets' sur rounding his property, has set an example worthy of being followed by all lot owners. Right now is the time to begin getting the streets in neat shape for the irrigation fair. The Wilcox Dept. Store have added a flow blue pattern to their crockery stock. It is all the rage this year. Yesterday morning the officers and a number of others interested in the South Side irrigation canal drove up to the head thereof to make preparations for putting in a headgate. County surveyor Meyer and a number of contractors ac companied the party. This step promises the early completion of the largest irrigation canal in Lin coln county. The shortness of the ice crop this season is causing considerable anxiety upon the part of the deal ers in cooling drinks. It is an open question whether an artificial lce- treeziug plant in North Platte could not be made to pay a profit. One could be built for $2,000 expense for Novelties n S ilver. o 4 O. V. Morrison has some splen did specimens of double-laced black breasted Indian Game chickens which he will have on exhibition at the Irrigation Fair that will be hard to beat. This variety of chickens is very rare in this vicinity and they will prove quite interesting to the farmers wives who have in various egg foundries. charge the Leather Belts with Silver Buckles, the latest, Ladies' Shirt Waist Sets, Buttons and Link Cuff Buttons, Hat Pins, J Book Marks, Souvenir Spoons, Watch Guards, etc. Also a complete line ot Harps. Up to Saturday eveing the U. P. refrigerator car iceing gang had averaged twelve hours per day for tue entire month. Should the com pany build another icehouse or two here (and doubtless it will see the wisdom in so doing)"in future years this will prove a profitable source of emploj'inent to many men in this city.

Kocken and children, who had been visiting relatives in Missouri, returned home Sunday Prof. P. H. Lonergan It is worth the trouble to go to The Wilcox Dept. Store and see their new lamps. They want to show them to you whether you want to buy or not, The bidding for the county line bridge between this and tf'roii- tier county was very spirited, and very close one firm offering- to do the work for 51,580, another for $1000, and another for $1,610. The bids for wooden structures followed about as closely together. The tting. of the contract was post poned until a conference could be had with Frontier county officials. It is again announced, and this time with some promise of fulfill ment, that the accommodating fore man of the U. P. shops here has gone to Pittsburg to take unto himself a bride, the prospective ceremony to occur Sept. 1st.
