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
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.

State Sctoator Hdagland has re

county In the state outside of Douglas
has given Mr. Hoagland a majority.
Douglas county gave Shotwell a big
majority, due to tho fact that ho is an
Omaha man. Mr. Hoagland ran par
ticularly strong in tho west end of tho

ment to him. North Platte has rea

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. This snmo class of peo
ple Is tho, Jiq that would poison a
uolghbor's cattle or Jlno stock, or write
an anonymous letter.
