As a dead rank failure, as a political iceberg, the fusion ratifi cation meeting held in this city Sat urday afternoon and evening was notable. Never before in the his tory of this city has a meeting at which such prominent people have been engaged to speak been hcld'that drew such a handful of auditors. Four ycarB ago the announcement that Senator Allen, "Little Giant" Thompson and Bertie Hitchcock were to speak ia North Platte would have filled the town with people; laBt Saturday there were not seventy-five country voters in town and half of them dd not attend the meeting. Lordy but it wan chilly, and it is not strange that the local fusion lead ers placed hot water bags at their feet that night. But the local lead ers were not the only ones who felt the "frost;" Allen, Thompson, ana, Hitchcock took the night train in a very despondent mood, and Thompson was heard to ask "what hi-thc-hell is the matter with the fusioniBts of Western Nebraska'' The meeting had bi'en extetisivcly advertised ni this and adjoining counties by big and little posters and through the newspapers. The idea of the promoters was to make the meeting the campaign opener in the west part of the state, but it' only proved an eye-opener to the fusion crowd. It furnished them undeniable proof of what they had reason to fear, namely, that the voters of "Western Nebraska arc not cut Bryanesque this year; that they have no use for Bryan and his crowd; they are satisfied with the administration of that true statesman, patriot and soldier William McKiuly, and that they propose to cast their votes for him. The aiternoon meeting' was held at the court house, and after the speaking had begun an actual count of noses showed forty-nine men and two women present. This wonder ful crowd was argumeuted later by a few ctirio&ity seeker, but at no time did the audience number one huudtcd. This meeting was ad dressed by "Little Giant" Thomp hon and G. M. Hitchcock, but the audience was so all-fired chilly that the speakers failed to arouse any enthusiasm whatever. The evening meeting was held at the opera house, and in order to help draw a crowd the services of the cornet band was called into requisition. But even the effort! of that first-class musical organiza tion waB ineffectual; the people failed to congregate. Emissaries were sent along the business street to opportune the "faithful" to at tend, and by the use of much per suasion and coat-tail pulling an audience of nearly two hundred were got together, a part of which were women, and about one-third republicans. Senator Allen wai, announced as the principal speaker of the evening, but the Senator said something about being tired the audience would make any speaker weary and did not speak long or with any of his usual force. At two or three intervals during His talk there was faint, half-hearted applause, but at no time did anj enthusiastic demonstration occur. At ten o'clock the band played "Lone and Weary" and the audience silently stole away in the darkness. The Kearney ball players have arranged for games with the Pueblo league team ou Spt. 6th and 7th W. A. Pax ton, jr. purchased 500 head .of high grade southern catth" which he will place on his Keith county ranch. The Ogalalla News says that the alfalfa hay on Dan Spangler'B farm will average about five and one-half tons per acre this year. The Congregational Sunday school at Ogalalla won the state banner for giving the mcst money, per pupil, for the Suiiday-schoo cause, County Judge Roberts of Dawsor county, has issued sixty-eight mar riage licenses since January 1st. He . tied the connubial knot lor twenty-two of the couples. "That Man." The comedy "That Man" will be presented at Lloyd's opera house Saturday evening, September 1st, The company comes direct from the Herald Square Theatre where it has played to phenomenal business, creating quite a sensation, in fact, the talk of the town. The central theme ct the com edy rests upon a man who, coining to New York, without friends, without money or prospects of any kind, hits upon a novel method of earning a livelihood, Heisdrawn in contact with several famlics, whose husbands have reached the neglectful state, and insists in spending more time abroad than at home. Jealousy on the part of the wives is the natural result, and "That Man" at once jumps into the breach and passes as one who com forts neglected wives and guaran tees to arouse jealousy in the hus bands. One of the most important parts in the comedy is a new type of adventuress who, in reality, is three in one, viz: An Italian painter, French singer and Spanish dancer. In these three different characters she fascinates three husbands of wildly diversified types and succeeds in keeping her triple identity a secret from them. All the entanglements and mif understandings that arise from thin condition of things arc most humorous, but at the same time are treated with a strict regard for probability. A culmination is reached at a re ception, which occurs iu act second, where the husbands have gone, each as he thinks, to meet a differ ent woman, and where the wives also participate in the fun, coming with "That Man" who ia their escort. The cast is a strong one. Mr. Walter Walker assumes the char acter of "That Man," whose spec ialty is iu comforting discarded wives; Miss Mildred St." Pierre, has the thoroughly congenial role of ths lady with triple identity, and the balance of this comedy organi zation has been chosen for their respective fitness for the many characters. No greater comedy treat could be offered than "That Man." BETWEEN THE RIVERS. The sugar beet crop iu this local ity is doing well at this time.

A Wife Says: " Wc have four children, With the fint three I suffered almost unbearable pain from 12 to 14 hours, and had to be placed under the Influence of chloroform. I used three bottles of Mother's Friend before our last child came, which is a strong, fat and healthy boy, doing my housework up to within two hours of birth, and suf fered but a few hard pains. This lini ment is the grand-1 est remedy ever made." Mother's Friend will do for every woman what It did for the; Minnesota moth:r who writes the above let ter. Not to use it during pregnancy Is a mistake to be paid for in pain and suffering. Mother's Friend equips the patient with a strong body and clear intellect, which in turn are imparted to the child. It relaxes the muscles and allows them to expand. It relieves morning sickness and nervousness, It puts all the organs concerned in perfect condition for the final hour, so that the actual labor is short and practically painless. Dan ger of rising or hard breasts is altogether avoided, and recovery is merely a matter ol a few days.
