Cryderman will take a load of fun-loving people out to the residence of Maj. Walker, on the north side, to participate in the mazes of the giddy dance. The visiting schoolma'ams are exodustmg in large numbers, leav ing many North Platte youths in a cave of gloom from which it will take weeks for them to emerge. Lovers of good soda-water will regret to learn the Streitz fountain will be closed for the season within a week. But a few days more will remain to procure the seductive sizz. Patterson & Alexander's ditch ing outfit expect to start next week upon the completion of the Sub urban irrigation canal, the firm having secured a sub-contract from the contractor. The relatives of the late Mrs. Caroline B. Doneuower wish to thus publicly express their thanks to the many sympathizing friends for the numerous acts of kindness shown during their time of anguish and trust that a similar affliction may be far removed from them. It is now stated that on next Sunday in the synagogue in Omaha Jacob Richards, of this citv, will wed a Miss Aronson, of the former place. Upon his return and resump tion of business in the Fair store Sam Richards will go east to lay in a mammoth fall and winter stock of goods. R. H. Langford of this city goes to Madrid, Perkins county to assist the republicans to open the campaign.

A large number from Madrid went down to Elsie to a rally Thursday night last, and the Elsie republicans will return the compliment by attending the Mad rid meeting to hear Mr. Langtord to-morrow evening.. The juvenile orchestra under the leadership of Prof. E. A. Gar lichs tendered the schoolma'ams a very delightful little concert at Keith's hall last evening after which dancing was indulged in until a seasonable hour. A irood sized audience was present to hear the first portion of the entertain ment many of whom, as the even ing was cool and pleasant, re mained to enjoy the pleasing pas time ot treading a measure to the sensuous strains of the orchestra. Those in attendance speak in terms of great praise of both portions of the programme. The joint debate at the court house last night upon the silver question between Messrs. Ridglev and Edmonds attracted quite a good sized audience, although it is doubtful if a vote were turned either way. While the former is the more argumentative speaker and cites better accepted authorities, yet the latter is one of your "bawn orators, sab," and is better calculed to catch the unthinking ear. In a discus sion of the money question it is the most convincing to make a cent per cent speech, the subject being one of figures and statistics, yet such an effort will never appeal to the sympathies of an audience like the ratrt'and roar of a populistic prose lyte yet in the ,end it will have a more enduring effect.

Don't forget that the place to buy bolts is of The Wilcox Dept Store. Little business of importance was transacted at the meeting- of the woman's fair auxiliary Tuesday afternoon. The attendance of mem bers was somewhat light. Mayor Baker has about made up his mind to wage a warfare upon the weeds growing in the streets and have the cost taxed up to the negligent property owner. In handling a valve over in the machine shop yesterday in some manner it slipped and severely mashed the fingers of Joe Todd, which will lay him up for a few days. A. E.
