The chief of fire departneat has posted no
tices warning all persons uncosaeeted with the
department not to meddle with the hose hoase
registers and other apparatus. Several curious
ad inquisitive persons have been making thi
elves too numerous around the registers aad H
is proposed to set down on them once and for all.
G. A. E, Posts in Dawson, Gosper, Frontier,
Chase, Perkins, Keith, Logan, McPherson, Chey
enne sad other counties have written the com
mittee that they will be here in full force during
the reunion. From the way in which the reports
are coming in it begins to look as though three
thousand strangers will be in the city during re
union week. Let em' come; the more the merrier.
Oa Thursday evening about nine o'clock, at
the Lutheran parsonage by Rev. Stump, Hugh
Gums, one of Lexington's most prominent business
men aad Miss Amelia Both, of Son Francisco, were
united In marriage. The groom's many friends
in this city will wish him and his partner joy in
their Lexington home. We are sorry, however,
that Hugh was not better informed than to go to
the X). S. land office for his marriage license.
The races at the county fair next month
promise to bo unusually lively, especially running
.races. It is said that several horse owners living
in adjoining counties will attend the district
xe-union and will bring with them horses that pos
sess staying qualities in a mile running race. It is
3slleved they will not only compete for the purses
offered by the fair association but will have other
xaces on the side. Yon can therefore expect
plenty amusement on the track.
A week or so ago some person entered Dr.
Dick's stable yard and took therefrom two wheels
belonging to the Doctor's buggy. It is not known
whether the act was committed in the light of
joke or as a plain theft, but one thing is certain
has occasioned considerable inconvenience to the
Doctor. In this connection he desires us to state
that ths fellow who took the wheels can have the
remainder of the buggy by simply calling for it.
The temperance meetings which hod been in
progress for a week closed Monday evening. The
meetings as a rule were largely attended, but
whether they have been instrumental in making
otee for the amendment it is hard to say. How
ever, the presence of Messrs. Demaree and Sobles-
ki has added new zeal to the faithful ones and they
will probably work for their cause with renewed
rigor. Last night Mr. Sobieski delivered a lecture
on "The Republic of Poland," at the tent and to
day the canvass will be silently folded and the
orators will depart for greener fields.
a. leiatour, of Deuel county, was in town
Saturday enroute home from a business trip to the
eastern part of the state. Owing to the scarcity of
corn in ueuei county he recently shipped a large
number of hogs to his farm In Fillmore county to
be fattened. There are large quantities of old
corn in the eastern part of the state, but holders
refuse to sell for less than fifty cents per bushel
vae aeaier nad 60,000 bushels on hand for which
paid fifteen cents per bushel last fall. Now he
aads a ready sale for it at forty cents, and as a re
sult will clean up ten or fifteen thousand dollars

The number of covered wagons going eastward
is apparently increasing each day. They come
from the counties west of us and are bound for the
easterd states. In many cases these emigrants are
jumping irom the frying pan into the fire. They
will find that the drouth and hard limes are not
confined alone to western Nebraska, for the same
condition of affairs exist In Iowa, Indiana, Mis
souri, Illinois and other state. As a result prices
lor iarm products will rule high, and as for secur
ing employment the chances are not much, if any,
better in those states than in our own. This win
ter will be a severe and trying one for many
fanners, but if they can keep soul and body to
gether until next spring there will undoubtedly be
a change, it is not likely that next year will
provo so disastrous to the tillers of the soil as has

The city council did not hold a session Mon.
day evening, though it was the regular meeting
night. A representative of the electric alarm
company will be here in a day or two to make an.
official test of the system recently put in and the
council thought it best to postpone the meeting
until that time, when, if the alarm Is accepted;
the contract will be closed by the council.
W. W. Heathcote leaves to-day for Sedalia, Mo.,
where on Thursday next he will open the season
as leading support to Buby Lafayette in "Ingo

trionic ability to the people of North Platte and
they hold the opinion that he is an exceedingly
clever actor. Tax Tbxbtjhz has nothing but good
wishes for Mr. Heathcote.

A Deserved Promotion.
W, L. Park has been promoted to the
position of assistant superintendent of the
Union Pacific, with headquarters in this
city, Mr. Burns having been transferred
to a division in Montana, we believe.
This promotion of Mr. Park is well de
served. He his for eight or ten years
been in the employ of the U. P. company
as passenger conductor and has proven
himself to be a capable railroad man.
His friends here in his old home are glad
to see him advanced and also to have
him and his wife again become residents.
The Senatorial Committee Meeting1.
The Republican central committee of
the Thirtieth senatorial district held a
meeting in this city last Saturday. Chair
man J. E. Evans presiding. The meeting
was for the purpose of selecting a date
and place for holding the senatorial and
representative conventions. The com
mittee decided that the conventions should
be held at North Platte on September 16,
on account of the reduced railroad fare
to this city, that being one of the dates of
the county fair and district reunion. The
congressional convention will meet at
Columbus on the following day.
Redmond Still Missing-.
The mystery surrounding the where
abouts of Dennis Redmond, who left his
home in this city three weeks ago, re
mains ansolved. The report that he was
seen in urana isiana a week ago seems
to have been without foundation, as also
the rumor of last Friday evening to the
effect that he had been found in the river
near the U. P. bridge. Some strange re
ports are raised regarding the missing
man. One day last week one man told
another he understood that Redmond had
been seen at Grand Island . The hearer
met another man and getting the name
mixed said the missing man had turned
up at Rock Island, 111 , and then the fel
low to whom this news was imparted got
equally mixed and gave out the informa

Arrested for Burglary.
Pete Gaffney, Frank Dilley and '-Yank"
Robinson were arrested Friday on the
charge of burglarizing Landgraf's saloon
the night before. The goods appropriated
consisted of several dozen bottles of
whisky and wine, about a thousand cigars
and several dollars in change, the total
amounting to $75 or $100. The theft was
discovered early Friday morning and the
police informed, who at once started in to
ferret out the thieves. The trio above
named were found on the streets well
" lushed," and as they seldom possess the
price of a drink they were caged. Search
was then made for the stolen goods and a "nidriianod to "nil

which the woman made some evasive re
ply. He again turned to Smith and asked
how. soon he was going home, to which
Smith replied that it would be an hour or
more. Mr. and Mrs. Newman then
walked away and sat down on 'the railing
of a lot and shortly afterwards got up and
started toward home .
When they entered the house: as ap
pears from the evidence given by Ella
Jenkins, the ten years old daughter of
Mrs. Newman by a former marriage,
Newman drew a revolver and announced
his intention of killine his wife. The
girl becoming alarmed fled from the house
and ran to a neighboring house and told
the gentleman that her papa was trying
to kill her mamma. The man attempted
to pacify the girl, but without avail, and
finally concluded that perhaps it would
be best to find an officer. After consider
able search he found Marshal Huntington
who accompanied him to the Newman
home. Finding the door locked, the
officer went to a window Vnd peering in
saw two prostrate forms o the bed. The
door was then burst open and the marshal
accompanied by several neighbors. entered
and found Newman laying, across the bed,
his hand clenching a forty-four calibre
revolver, and a bullet hole in his right
temple, the ball lodging back of the left
"eye. The woman lay with her head partly
on oi me oea. ana naa a Hole aoout an
Inch back of the right ear, the ball going
clear through her head. -The position of
her arm indicated that she.had attempted
to shield herself. 1
The coroner was at once?notified and a"
jury empaneled, but the facts were so
plain that it needed no evidence to con
vince them that Newman "killed his, wife
and then committed suicide.

People often came ten or twelve miles

Over five hundred bottles of this Rem

cure the worst cases. Dozens of persons
