Irrigation Bonds Cancelled The state supreme court, ln a decis ion rendered this week, affirms the decision of tho lower court in tho suit brought to cancel the bonds issued a number of years ago by tho Paxton irrigation district.

Freckles, at Keith Tomorrow Evening One of the most important offerings of the current season at tho Keith theatre is the first presentation here of Neil Twomey's delightful dramatization of Geno Stiatton-Porter's charming story "Freckles," which is announced for Saturday evening, June 28th. The fact that there have been more readers of this story than any other book published in a decade n faires timate is in the millions makes tho dramatization of the utmost importance to the dramatic world. "Freckles" as a drama is stronger than "Fre k'03" as a story. JThe char actors live, love and have adventure one can see and hear, there is nothing left to the imagination. D. L. Martin, under whose management the present tour is conducted, has made the produc tion of "Freckles" exceedinly elaborate and has assembled a company of un usual excellence for the prccntation of this charming story play. The music for the play and the songs rendered by Freckles are by the Vien nese composer, Anutol Fnedland, nnd arcua novelty from a musical point of view. The Woodland Fantasy played during tho play is a masterpiece. North Platte Will Have Ball Game. Homer Mussolman and Perry Carson, who are soliciting funds for tho pur pose of bringing to North Platte the Humboldt team, formerly a member of the Mink league, report satisfactory progress and are hopeful that tho nec essary amount will he raised. Five or six hundred dollars are needed to start the season and it is believed that with that sum as a guarantee pot sufficient revenue from games can be obtained to keen up the team for a month or two. While the principal drawback will be the lack of a schedule of games, it is probable that several open dates can be secured from tho Kearney and Grand Island teams of the state leaguo, that a few games can be secured from Wes tern League teams as they pass through, nnd that perhaps a few games can be secured with Omaha city teams. If games can thus be secured, North Platto is likely to have some classy ball during the next month or two. Eight members of the Humboldt team arrived in town last ovoning, the other members stopping over at Kearnoy and will be here in a day or two. The Humboldt team won the pennant in the Mink league two years ago, and last year stood second. Now ball grounds are being laid out to day south of First street and 01st of tha Park stone houso in tho First ward. The fence and grand stand used at the old parki will bo remodeled thereto. Tno Humboldt team comes here with out an absolute guarantee, expecting, however, that the money subscribed shall bo pifid over to the team at inter vals as the season progresses. It is up to the manager to secure sufficient games to pay the greater part of tho salaries of the players. Mrs. W. B. Salisbury has been ser iously ill at her home,on west Fifth ! street for seyeral "weeks past. I ' Shake Off Your Rheumatism. I Now is tho time to get rid of your rheumatism.
