Fred Berrv, with an attendance of 150;
then the morning dedicatory service
with sermon by Rev Mr. Proper

ing the main auditorium. In tho
afternoon a Y. M. C. A. meeting was
held with an addreS3 by Rev Berry, and
in the evening the final dedicatory sor
vice was held, Dr. Mills of Omaha, de
livering the uddress. Dr. Mills stated
thnt $500 was needed to fully dis
charge nil financial obligations resting
upon the church, and within twenty
minutes this sum was forthcoming from
the big audience present. Wo congrat
ulate the Baptist people that they have
a church property valued at $17,000
that is absolutely free of incumbrance.

Reason for Change of Route.
Secretary Crosby of tho Chamber of
Commerce is in receipt of a letter from
Honornble Moses P. Kinkaid, referring
to the matter of reestablishmcntof sur.
vice on the North Platte to Myrtle Star
Route, a matter which the Chamber of
Commerce had had under advisement
for some time. This letter inclosed a
letter which was received by Mr. Kin
kaid from the Fourth Assistant Post
Master General, setting forth tho rea
sons why the service was discontinued
and why at this time tho department
did not feel justified in continuing tho
The original change was made be-
caue of a numerously signed petition
from the patrons of the Myrtle, Gar
field and Gandy offices, requesting sor
vico between those points in lieu of the
North Platte to Myrtlo and Garfied ser
vice. While this change cuts off the
entire north-east portion of our county
from any mail service whatever from
North Platto, direct, and leaves them
with their mail delivered some 48 hours
later from this point, the department
justifies the action from tho fact that
there is nn annual saving in expenditure
in the sum of $05.00.
It would seem that the only thing can
further be done would be to allow a
trial of the substituted service for a
time and then again present the matter
to the department, for the entire pa
tronage of the offices mentionod seem
to havo been misinformed at to the or
iginal petition they signed asking for
the change, and are now desirous of
tho old North Platte to Myrtle and Gar
field Star route service
and receive liberal reward.
