Tho boys of tho local high school
held a meeting yesterday and after
considering for some time tho merits
of track and base ball as spring ath
letics decided in favor of track. Their
experience last year when they de
cided in favor of baseball and then did
not get to play a game, was tho thing
that helped in getting them to decide
this year for track. , Last year they
found that practically no other
schools had baso ball teams and then
the weather was against baso ball.
In showing the rapid changes be
ing made in our Ideas Ira Baro told
the other day of his first auto ride. He
said that A. E. Timmerman who had
the ilrst. automobile in North Platte,
took him for a ride a few days after
tho machine was received. Mr. Tim
merman went out into the country
and opened up tho throttle. When the
lllcr got to going at the rato of fifteen
miles an hour Mr. Bare says he shout
ed to Mr. Timmormnn that he wasn't
in a hurry to get anywhere and that ho
would feel safer if it didn't go so fast.
Since that ho has ridden on country
roads at express train rates and thor
oughly enjoyed It.

The iron was won by Mrs. Beet", no address given. Pleaso call for
the Iron. Here is tho best answer:
"You can sell for less than cost only ono way; you buy from the
manufacturer and this cuts out the wholesaler's profit, which you can
givo to your customers."
Tills is very correct, as we aro fixture wholesalers and can give
you a larger discount on lighting fixtures than wo would receive If wo
bought from jobbers.
Let us flguro your electrical requirements; If you want anything
special wo can mako it from your designs. "Our quality tho best for

East Relief Committee in this part
of tho world In tho past I hopo
the future gill bring you greater
success. It will always give mo
pleasure to render nny assistance
possible to the Commltt on no n
Whole;; to any of tho workers, nnd
toHho groat work of humanity that
tho committee represents."
When 189,000 Russian refugees
from.ithe Crimea arrived off Con

ALFALFA AS A REFRIGERATOR

did not suffer from the heat as did the
neighbors. The thermometer showed a

Someone suggested that It might bo

ture Just north of other alfalfa- fields
and found the same marked difference.
Now the fanners of thnt region are
planting alfalfa around their dwell
ings and enjoy summer temperatures
that make a trip to the seashore need
less, nccordlng to the Golden Age.
The cnuse of tho coolness of winds
passing over alfalfa fields is that tho
plant nbsorbs much moisture, the
evaporation of which reduces the tem
perature of tho air and lessens tho
summer heat In the adjoining land
over which It blows.
Tho suggestion now is for farmers
that wish to profit from tho presence
and tho board money of summer va
cationists to combine the profit and
utility of alfalfa with higher1 rates
