Saturday last was a red letter holiday, the
occasion being the Knights of Labor picnic.
'There were gjtnes and sports in such multitude
that no one could be disappointed in not having
something to amuse and instruct. Remembering
the pleasant time had last year, the people turned
-outenmaeso and it's the universal verdict that
everybody had a grand good time.
Dr. E. B. Warner's new hearse arrived Monday
and was taken in charge by Sam Van Doran, at
whose stable it will be kept. Through the courtesy
of Mr. Van Doran a Tribune reporter had the
privilege of giving it a thorough inspection, and
ho found it a vehicle of fine workmanship, with
-all the latest improvements, costing a small
fortune, the freight alone being over one hundred
dollars. Such things are not pleasant to contem
plate.but they are necessary in first-class funerals.
The Buchanan Comedy Company will appear
at Lloyd's opera house on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday evenings of next week. This company
was annonnced to play in this city several weeks
-ago, but while in Kearney the manager was called
east to attend the bedside of a relative and com
pelled to withdraw the engagement here. The
company is now playing to good honsea along the
line of the U. P. and are all the better by reason
of their forced vacation.
A much needed institution in North Platte for
some time has been a first-class restaurant, and it
ia with pleasure The Tribune is able to announce
this week that Sirs. 11. Urbachlias filled tho want
in a highly creditablo manner by tho establishment
of the Vienna Restaurant on Front street, which
was opened to tho public on Tuesday. Everything
is new, bo neat and inviting that a mere look in
t the doors will make you hungry- The ground
Hoor is divided into two departments, the lunch
room and the dining room, while on tho upper
floor there is a dining room for private parties.
Heals will be prepared for families also at any
time. While everything is first-class, tho prices
are moderate, in keeping with the times, live and
let live being tho motto. Tho house will be a
credit to the city and will receive a liberal
patronage from tho start.
The Ministzb's WiFE.-Some observation and
experience has convinced of tho import;ince of
the following particulars in a minister's wife. She
ought to bo selected by a committee of the church;
ought to be just like everybody, please everybody,
bo ready at all times for everything, have no will
or way of horown, and boa cheerful drudge for
everybody. She should never have any disability
of any kind; sho should havo nerves of wire and
-.sinews of iron; sho should never grow tired or
impatient; she should be cheerfnl, intellectual,
pious, and domesticated; she should keep the
house in order, keep tho children clean and neat,
and raise them to suit the tastes of ovcrybody.
She should keep up tho style of a lady on very
6mall wages, and always havo leisure for "good
work," and be ready to receive "morning calls."
8ho should lead in the Band of Hope, tho Dorcas
Society and tho Ladies Jlissionary Society. Sho
should teach infant clashes, keep up choirs, attend
all meetings, help all tho poor, caro for tho sick,
and do many other good thengs, too numerous to
monKnn- nri'1 tl-.pn hn nlrvippd with RVfirvbodv and
"-everything, and never desire any reward except
jost what happens to come, and tho satisfaction
of knowing that she lias done her own duty and
much of the work of other people too.
Our Schools. Feeling that many of our boys
jicd girla are too busily engaged in play or other
wise, to think of what else is about at hand for
them, we whisper to them that school will open
next Monday morning September 6th at nino
o'clock. Books should be gotten ready for nso.
Girls always liavo them neat and clean where they
can find them, bst boys frequently allow theirs to
become dirty. Hunt tlim and dust them, boys.
Pupils should not secure their books until tho
teacher gives them the proper list. This should
bo particularly tho case with reading books.
As the law requires narcotics to bo taught, there
has been an arrangement made to give thorough
instruction in this branch of physiology, both
oral and with text books. Stale's physiology
and works gotten up by Mrs. Hunt, Supt. W. C.
T. TJ., have been regularly adopted.
We shall make an effort to do a good work for
the schools, but wo also trust parents will
remember that this is thoirwork, and they should
endeavor to assist the teacher at all times. A visit
to the schools now and then will bo appreciated
by tho teacher, and tho parents can then see what
the teacher is doing.
Wo will give school notes from time to tiino.

in this judicial district and well known in North
Platte, is issiutant U. S. district attorney for

port a slight revival during the past week.
The locations are mostly in the extreme
western part of the state.
The hail storm in the vicinity of Pax
ton a couple weeks since did considera
ble damage to late vegetables. Tom
Brown, our former fellow townsman, lost
his entire melon crop.
Cold weather setting in just as the
melon crop was ripe and ready to be
marketed, reduced the demand for this
excellent fruit The market has been
well supplied and prices ruled low.

Since March 1st the Pacific Hotel
Co. of this place have used up a register

A gentleman wants to know how it
would do to start a dynamite factory on
the Dismal, there being plenty infusorial
earth at the forks of the river. Our per
mission is granted, but we suggest that
'a Chicago anarchist be engaged to do the
work. He could be blown up so easy ana
save the hangman a job.
The infant child of Mr. and Mrs.
John Ellison was -.buried from the home

were in attendance in expression of a
deep regard for the bereaved young par

half a dozen couples of our young folks
Monday evening proved a pleasant source
of amusement, those participating report
ing an excellent time. The young ladies
getting up the affair are to be compli

vide entertainment for the gentlemen.
Harry Blodget and Clarence Allison
called at our sanctum last Monday. The
gentlemen have claims in 10-34 and 10-35.
Mr. Blodgett accepts a position in W. C.

securing the services of a wide-awake
and energetic young man to assist him in
his large and rapidly increasing business.

us a railroad pass and an order for "grub"
at one of the leading hotels, we would
honor the event with our august presence;
as it is we fear we will have to stay at

THE COUNTY FAIR.
The Dates set for Oct. 6th, 7th, 8th
At a meeting of the Board of Directors
of the County Agricultural Society some
time since the date of commencing the fair
was set for Sept 22d. Shortly after a
letter was received from Mr. Cody
(Buffalo Bill) requesting a postponement,
as he and a number of his men desired to
be present Some time was consumed in
communicating with Mr. Cody, but finally
a telegram reached him and was answered
stating he could be here by the 5th of
of October. Thereupon the board decided
to set the Fair for the Gth of October,
ending on the 9th.
The fair promises to be one of the most
attractive county fairs ever held in the
State. The products of the county and
surrounding districts have been most
bountiful, assuring a magnificent exhibit
in the agricultural line, and several parties
have indicated their intention to have fine
stock on exhibition. The premiums in the
speed ring are very liberal. Besides the
usual events of trotting and running, there
will be the unusual and highly interesting
feature of a grand Boman chariot race
on on each day" and an exciting 25-mile
free for all runing racefor a liberal purse.
These features are something never
attempted at a county fair in the State and
are events that people go hundreds of
miles to witness. The 25-mile race is an
event that should attract a number of
entries and give our young horsemen and
cowboys an opportunity to show their
horsemanship and powers of endurance.
It will be a grand time for sport.
Making hay is still being pushed with
zeal and many will not be through "when

The heated term being over, it will
now be in order to inquire about a supply
of fuel for the approching coolness that
will soon be with us. The coal broblem
is one with which we have to wrestle with
considerable livliness, and its not a bad
plan to take Boreas by the foretop by
providing a supply of the black diamonds
before the old man gets his grip firmly
fixed upon us.
Those who have deferred thir summer
vacation to 1he cool days of September

Among those who have done so are Mr.

It will be in the mellow autumn days

In looking over our country exchanges
we notice frequent reference to the fact
that unsightly weeds obstruct the side
walks, vacant lots, ore. In this respect
North Platte cannot make much com
plaint, the streets and grounds being
remarkably free from nuisances of this
nature. But on west Fifth street however
the weeds have nearly covered the side
walks in some places, rather to the
discredit of that cleanly portion of the
city. It's a very small job to remove
them, but it's probably nowbody's business
to do so. The owners of property, how
ever, should havo sufficient enterprise to
have them cut down in front of their
respective lots. In this respect Russell
"Watts set a good example some time ago.
The merchants of North Platte are
now displaying their fall stocks of goods.
Fabrics are unusually rich and fine,
apparently each year the demand being
for costlier and bettor goods. This is
especially true of Nebraska and other
States in the great agricultural belt.
"When we came here we were poor (some
of us hold our own pretty we" I): then the
coarser goods and the necessaries of life
were all we could afford. But the majority
are growing richer. They cannot only
afford to buy better articles but many of
them indulge in the luxuries and fine
ornaments supposed to be only within the
reach of the bond-holders aud middle
men. These things indicate prosperity
beyond what we are willing to ac
knowledge. New York. Aug. 23. A dispatch
from Boston to the Ecening Pot says:
The Union Pacific railroad company last
"Wednesday paid the last note standing
against it and is now entirely out of
floating debt. "When Mr. Adams became
presidont in June, 1884, bills and accounts
payable amounted to 9,700,000, and the
courts decided that $916,000 in addition
was due to the government, making the
total floating debt$10,61G,000 in June 30,
1884. The company has thus in a little
over two years paid off all its floating
debt This has been accomplished by
three methods: First the surplus income
of 1SS5 was $2,500,000; second, Kansas
Pacific consols, and Oreeon Short Line
bonds have been sold, but no addition to
fixed charges is made on this account, as
the amount of the Kansas Pacific consols
outstanding was decreased 1,022,000 in
18S5, this being accomplished by the
application of tha proceeds of land sales ;
third, by the sale of assets, principally St.
Joseph and Grand Island bonds. "When
Mr. Adams began his administration the
St. Joseph and Grand Islaud road had
hardly any value, not earning its interest,
while as the result of his management it
now not only earns the interest on its first
mortgage bonds, which sell above par, but
also on its incomes.
The people in the southwest portion of
the county are considerably interested in
cisterns, some Having already constructed
them and others contemplating doing so.
As a rule they are not posted
in this class of work and a subscriber

building will answer through the columns
of The Tribune.

The G. A. R. reunion at GraHd Island
which closes to-day, was a grand success
in every respect, the weather being f'firie
and the attendance large. Perhaps there
were no more veterans present than were
gathered last year at Beatrice, but there
were more families and more sons, of,

The presence of the regular troops 'and
a battery of artillery was a great attraction
especially to the younger generation whose
curiosity to see and hear the "dogs of war"
is great. Of course a battery on parade
in time of peace presents an entirely
different appearance from one in the front
in time or war.
From a brief visit on the

more time that usual to visitingeach other,
renewing pleasant acquaintances formed
at former reunions and in social inter
course generally. There was a decided
aversion to falling in for parade and march

officers to make a display of equestrian

were pronounced highly realistic.
North Platte was well represented, both
by old soldiers and others, thirty-five or

Slaughter of tho Innocents.
As previously announced, the. side hunt
of the Lincoln County Sportsmen's Club
took place on "Wednesday, Sept'i 1st. For
several weekspastthe eventhas been look
ed forward to with keen pleasure by the
sportsmen of the city and members of the
respective sides .were confident that their
side would be the victorious one. At 7 :30
Tuesday evening those intending enjoying
the sport registered at McGee's real estate
office, and after that hour they were given
the privilege of stirting for their selected
hunting grounds. Few, however, started
before"3 a. m. the. following morning, the"
majority leaving the city abont 6 o'clock.
From Brady Island on tho east to
O'Fallons on the west and all along the
north side of the river men and dogs were
conspicuously scattered. In many of the
enclosed pastures notices to huuters and
trespassers were posted, but a box of
cigars or a flask of soda water held up
before the eyes of the land owner made
him smile and the hunters were allowed
to pursue their sport unmolested. All
over the country there was a continual
bang, bang, of the shotgun enough firing
to lead the uninitiated to believe that a
pitched battle between two forces was
taking place. About 8 o'clock the parties
began returniKg and from that hour until
10:30 the conveyances drove up to the
Hinman House at intervals and deposited
their load of game; subjecting the same to
the count of scorer Conklin and when all
were in the record as neat as the reporter
could learn stood as follows :

Yours very truly,
R. H. Langford's
The cool weather of the past week has
effected the fruit market very materially,
the retail trade being very dull, arid sales
not oyer one half what they were the
week before, peaches and pfum3 selling
principally by the box. Grapes are on the'
decline and before the season is over will
be so.ld cheaper than ever before. Parties
waiting for peaches to get cheaper before
buying for preserving, are making a
mistake as they are cheaper now than
they will be two weeks later. Next week
I will have clings in the market, and all
who wish to pickle or can peaches should
bu' at once. Vegetables of home pro
duction are plentiful, and sold very
cheap. We still claim to be headquarters
for fruit and the more rare varieties of
vegetables. Prices for the coming week
will range about as follows:
Cal. Peaches per box $2.7503.00
Utah Peaches per .box l.G01.80
Peaches per pound 1215
Pears per box 2.502.75
Pears per pounds 1015 cts
