Nathaniel Lap) Dies Nathaniel Lapp, who for twenty years had lived north of Wallace, died yesterday at the home of a daughter at Moorefield. Death was duo to can cancer of the stomach which had af flicted him for a yearpr inoreand for which he had taken treatment In North Platte. The deceased was past sixty years of age, and leaves several children. The funeral will be held at Moorefield. Certain of the near approach of death, Mr. Lapp a couple of weeks ago ordered a sale of his personal proper ty on the farm and set the date for August 25th, the day on which his funeral occurs. The sale could not be recalled following his death and It will be held today. """ TliollnlI Tournament. The base ball touruament held Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of last week together with the finals played Sunday formed the best and cleanest ballfest North Platte has ev er had. Each of the eight gamps were good, the members of the teams con ducted themselves in a most gentle manly manner, the fans were as or derly as It is poslblo for enthusiastic fans to be, and the attendance was sufficiently large to meet the financial . requirements. We question if one could follow the western leaguo teams through eight consecutive games and see as uniformly good ball as was wit nessed on the local grounds. To Man ager Robinson, of the North Platte team, is due much of the credit for tho success of tho tournament. Ho Is ono of North Platte's "live wires," and we are glad he is one of us. L., L.

A Sure Enough Coward Some of tho residents of tho west part of tho city nnd especially of west Sixth street aro complaining thatsou'io ono In that part of tho city is placing tncks .out ho wnlk. It started with carl pet tacks, but recently the walk wa? strown with large flat-head tacks. The work is evidently done for the sake o't a few who rldo their bicycles on tho valk, but tho person scattering tho tacks has evidently forgotten or over looked tho fact that a number of bare footed children play on the walks and that whoro thoy would puncture ono tiro thoy would probably stick tacks In several children's feet. An act of this nature 1st especially cowardly. A person having a grlev nnco of that naturo should have norvo ojiough to make himself known and If thoy do not wish to tako tho matter in thoir own hands, they should tako it up with tho police and file charges against thoso with whom thoy wish to get oven.
