It coming to our knowledge that parties
being infected with scarlet fever, i have, in
order to avoid quariotine, concealed the
fact, thereby scattering the disease, and
endangering life, we deem it necessary to
give this notice and say from this time on
the law will be enforced to the letter. The
fine in such cases is from Sioo to S200.
Anyone found covering up a contagious
disease without reporting same to health
officer or family physician will be subject
to a fine. A special policeman will look
after this matter in the future.

A Greet. Attraction.
A squadron of the Tenth cavalry with the
efficersand band will ben groat attraction
for Alliance on the Fourth. They will be
out on thoir annual practice march and
will come overland, probably spending
several days here. Hurdle, hippodrome
and other races will be given which will
interest everyone. It has been decided to
haven flower parade instead of the usual
one made up of floats. Another meeting
will be held by the committee tonight to
The Tribune man was asked the other
day what the citizens of Crawford intended
to do about getting up a Fourth of July
celebration at this place this year. The
Tribune hopes that everyone in Crawford
will aid in every way possiblo the efforts
of our sister city Alliance in getting up the
biggest, grandest and most successful
Fourth of July celebration ever held in
northwest Nebraska. We owe this to our
selves and to our sister city, as a celebra
tion was abandoned there last year in or
der to help us, and the distinct understand
ing then was that Crawford would join in
with them this year. Stand up for Craw
ford and go to Alliance on July 4, 1903.
Another Tire in Whitfield Grocery.
The grocery store belonging to W. M.
Whitfield in the Corbin building, which
was discovered to be on fire one morning
about two weeks ago was again discovered
burning last Sunday about two a. m. The
fire apparently originated in the rear
end and when discovered that por
tion of the building was iu a fair way
to assume uncontrollable proportions. As
it was almost the entire stock of groceries
was ruined. There was about a car load
of flour stored at the back of the room.
His stock of canned goods, qucenswarc,
glassware, etc., were all smoked The
insurance on the stock was $3,000, which
Mr. Whitfield says rlretty well covers his
loss. His greatest trouble, he fears, will
lie in inability to get insurance on any
goods in the future as the circumstances
make it appear that these fires may have
been of incendiary origin.
W. E. Lotspeich had a leg broken by a
horse falling on him Tuesday evening near
the Lotspeich ranch. He was brought to
the home of relatives in this city Wednes
day by his brother A. M., and is getting
along as well as could be expected.
Tirst Game of the Season Won.
The first base ball game of the season
was played here Sunday afternoon as had
been previously advertised between the
Sidney and Alliance teams. The cold, wet,
disagreeable weather prevented a good at--tendance,
which the game certainly would
have had on a fair day. As it was the gate
receipts were sufficient to clear all ex
penses. There were twenty-five or thirty
visitors from Sidney in addition to the
team. The game was a little bit too one
sided to be excitingly interesting, The
score stood iO to z. It's a good beginning
for Manager Carlson's boys. Here's hop
ing and believing it to be a token of future
successes for them.
Teachers Dining Hall.
S. W. Reese entered into a contract
Tuesday with the boarding committee of
the junior normal to operate the dining
hall for the teachers during the ten weeks'
term, commencing Monday, June 8. The
basement rooms of the school house will
be used for this purpose. Board will be
$2.75 per week which is indeed a very low
figure but we venture to say that as good a
meal as possible for the price will be
served and everything cennected with the
dining room will be neat and clean. The
committee feels fortunate in securing Mr.
Hccsc to take charge of this work.
Lynching at Newcastle.
"Diamond Slim" Clifton who murdered
n young ranchman and his wife near Gil

cold blooded murders ever committed in
