Learning of his departure soon after Mrs. Kel8oy reported tho matter to the polico with tho result that Kolsey was taken off No. 4 at Kearney and placed in jail. Saturday morning tho chief of polico communicated with Mrs. Kolsey by telephone, and a compromise was mado by Kelsey turning over to tho chief for his wife tho sum of $150. Kol sey was then turned loose. Friday was pay day and Kelsey had taken charg of nil tho money paid by tho railroad employes who wero boarders, tho sum exceeding two hundreds dollars.

A telogrnm received by John Murray Sunday morning announced the death at Lincoln of his son-in-law Paul Bart lett. Mrs. Murray left tho same night for Lincoln to attend tho funeral. Tho deceased was well known by the older residents of North Platte, having in tho early part of the 90's filled tho position of assistant' 'manager of tho E. W. ranch at Cottonwood. While re siding there ho was united in marriage to Miss Roso Murray, who with a son and daughter survivo him. Later he removed to Lincoln and engaged in the lumber business, in which ho was very successful and became one of the wealthy men of the capltol city. Close application to business told on his health and a couple of years ago, on account of extreme nervousness, was forced to retiro from active work. His condition for a timo was alarming, but later ho improved. Last week ho was in Greeley, Col., andjwas stricken with unconsciousness while at breakfast in his hotel. Ho rallied, was taken homo to Lincoln but expired early Sunday morning. No Hope for Kinkaid Bill. A Washinton special in today's Bee says: Judge ivinkaid is not so sure about his bill reducing the improve ment requirements within tho territory of the so-called Kinkuid act, which he introduced early in tho Sixtieth con gress, and in a letter he is sonding to his constituents in tho Sixth Nebraska district he frankly ndmits ho is in doubt nbout tho timeliness of tho measure. Evidently Kinkaid has heard from homo for he states that there is enough differ ence of opinion existing as to the ad' visability of securing a reduction of improvements under the one-section act to defer pressing tho bill any further until ho is definitely informed as to tho proportion of sentiment for and against the reduction of tho value of improvements, Representative Kinkaid states that in order to secure consideration of any amendment to tho ono-section act the value of improvements would havo to be fixed as high as G2J cents and possi bly at 75 cents per aero and he there fore calls upon his constituents for light and holp that acceptable legisla tion may be enacted. In tho mcantimo the Kinkaid bill, which sought to fix tho value o" improvements at 40 cents per acre, "sleeps the sleep that knows no awakening." Heavy Snow Storm. For nearly twenty-four hours, begin ning Sunday night and terminating last nitrht, North Platte had a snow storm as severe as any experienced in recent years, and during which tho nmount of snow that fell aggregated nine and eight-tenth inches. During part of tho storm period, tho temperature was mild, and the snow to some extent melted as it fell, so there is not to ex ceed six inches on the level. The most furious part of the storm wbb about 8:30 last evening, when tho snow fell thick and wris driven by a rather high wind, resulting in considerable drifting. This forenoon opened bright and warm and tnc snow will no doubt soon disap pear. This fall of moisture is welcomed by all, as it will result in placing the ground in fine shape for spring work on the farms. Tho Overland Limited du hero nr 1:30 yesterday did not reach this terminal until 7:15 this morning. The train in charge of Conductor Anderson left Cheyenno at 3:15 yesterday aftor noon, and was therefore sixteen hours between tho two terminals. Conductor Anderson says tho Btorm between Cheyenne and Jul sburg was about the worst he ever encountered. Tho snow filled tho turntablo pit at Sidney and prevented getting engines and snow plows out of tho round house. The Secret of Long Life. A French scientist has discovered one secret of long life.

THE RICHEST LAND Not Under Cultivation Today Is that portion of Southern Florida near the southeast coast of Flor ida and west of the city of Miami, which is claimed by the most noted experts to be the richest tract of land to be found in the United States, and some has gone so far as to say, in the world. With a charming climate and at the very doors of the world's best markets, nothing like it can be found on this continent today. There is now offered for sale a tract of 180,000 acres of this fine land. This magnificent property large enough for 12,000 farms and homes is being practically given away to 12,000 persons who apply for farms before they are all sold. Remember that While They Last, $240.00, Payable $10.00 a Month, Buys a Farm and Lot. In addition to the farm each purchaser is given a business or resi dence lot in the town to be established on this land.

There is practically no limit to the variety of crops that can be raised on this land. The soil being very rich and fertile, is a veritable mine of agricultural wealth, and the yield and production of fruits, vegetables in fact almost any kind of crop known to the modern farmer, can hardly be excelled.
