Several weeks ago the XJ. P. company laid
pipes on tho north side of tho hotel preparatory
to putting in two fountains, but einco then

The town of Bed Cloud has tho best amateur
ball team in the western country. It has won
thirteen straight games from neghboring clubs
and its members arc thinking seriously of tack
ling the first gang of professionals that comes
along with vacant date. State Journal. Tho
North Platto base ball club denies tho allegation
and stands ready to cross bats with any amatuer
team in the state and will put a purso as a price
that means business.
Tho following question is asked by tho State
Journal: "How is it that laboring men in conn
try towns all over Nebraska pay from 6 to 10
cents per pound for tho best beef, while in Omaha,
Lincoln and a few other smaller places tho samo
classes must put up 12! i to 15 cents for every
pound of meat they buy? Is it all because ex-
Iensefl and rents are higher in the larger places?
Or do city butchers pay more for stock than
those in villages?" Is the above assumption cor
rect? Can the Journal point to any town whore
the best beef is sold at, from 0 to 10 cents per
pound? If there is such a place our local butch
ers would like to know where it is.
There was a show at Kearney recently, ac
companied of courso by the usual "camp follow
ers." lleferring to tho operations of these fel
lows tho Era said: "Close observers who sawn
great many individuals dealing with tho fakirs at
show grounds Saturday, arrived at tho conclu
sion that tho fools are not all dead. The fool
killer would have an immense harvest in Kear
ney. As long as a man bets on another man's
game ho will bo fleeced." The crop of fools is
unusually large this year, judging from this and
other reports. They seem to thrive better in dry
Somo of tho Gothenburg boys went to North
Platto last Sunday were, upon their arrival at
that place, horrified to seo what they supposed to
be a man hanging to a telegraph post. Tho scene
was so realistic that it unnerved tho Gothenbnrg
ers that's why they didn't play ball with their
old-time vim. Upon closer inspection, however,
they discovered a large card attached to tho hang
ing man efflgy bearing tho inscription: "Plum
Creek Umpire." Tho figure represented none
other editor Krier, of tho Plum Creek Pioneer,
who now enjoys the distinction of being as big a
man as St. John, the Prohibitionist, both having
been hung in effigy, and shows that under Ameri
can institutions the baso ball umpire ranks with
a candidate for president. This recent and un
expected elevation of editor Krier is due to the
fact that he didn't umpire the last gamo of base
ball between the North Platto and Plum Creek
clubs to tho entire satisfaction of tho Platto
club. Gothenburg Independent.

That is to say, your lungs. Also all your

The intelligent character of tho juries
lately before the county court has been
remarked upon, composed as they have
been of business men, and the question
has been asked why such juries are not
procured in cases before .the district
court. That's too hard a question to
uatue nave not ueen so low in a
number of years and local stock growers
complain ol dimculty in finding a remun
erative market. Of course young fat
steers and dry cows are in demand for
butchers use, but at present they are
rather scarce, but will be quite plenty in
a month or so. The Chicago market has
not been so low in a number of years.
corn-fed Nebraska cattle being quoted at
3.25d.o;. Texas cattle running from
1.90 for cows to 3.25 for steers, while" the
very best steers averaging 1600 lbs are
considered worth less than 4.50. Stock
men of the west are not likely to grow
rich at these figures- It looks as though
we should have some cheap beef. Hogs
are quoted in Chicago at $5.205.50, but
that does not prevent sliced ham selling
in North Platte at 20 cents per pound.
In 1873 a road was laid out along the
section line south of the city, extending
some distance west. Unas. jicUonald
who owns a portion of the land through
which the road runs, we believe has never
acknowledged that the road was legally
constituted : at any rate his fence has oc
cupied the section line. Last summer
W. M. llmman, supervisor of road dis
trict 30, after serving notice on Mr. Mc
Donald to do so, but which was not com
plied with, moved the fence to what he
claimed as the road line and charged the
expense of the work $101 to Mr. Mc
Donald. Payment being refused, suit
was brought to recover the amount.
Trial was had before the county court
this week, and as nearly all the old resi
dents were witnesses, it attracted a good
deal of attention, The case wasrwannly con
tested, J. I.Nesbitt being for the plaintiff
and Church & Bixler for the defendant.
The jury returned a judgment for the
plaintiff in the amount prayed for.
Majoriwitz vs. Miller was the title of
a lawsuit that brought quite a number of
the residents from Garfield precinct to
the city and occupied the attention of the
county court a couple of days this week.
In the fall ol lSb the people of Garfield
precinct held a fair at a school house
which is on the land of Jacob Miller.
There was a fence on two sides of the
school house, and for some reason on the
day of the fair it was decided to stretch
a wire around the other two sides, leaving
a gate way in front, which was done . In
the evening after dark, Wallace Majon-
witz came naing up on a nne Horse at a
rapid rate and being ignorant of the ex
istence of the wire fence in front of the
building turned into the school house
yard at the usual place and ran into tho
barbed wire fence, receiving considerable
bodily injury and his horse subsequently
died from the wounds received. The
action wsis brought against Miller to re
cover damages to the amount of $2o0.
The jury held that the defendant was not
The commissioners have labored
pretty hard this week auditing the large
number of bills that have accumulated
during the past six months. Judging
rom the looks of many of these bills: it
has Decome quite a uniiorm habit to
charge the county very heavy wages for
light service, a number of assessors
bills especially, the board seemed to
think, coming under this head. There is
not any doubt but what the position of
the commissioners in this matter is well
taken. It is reasonable to suppose that
an assessor will put in a reasonable days
work, say from six to eight hours, and
that lie is a man of sufficient judgment
to determine the value of a piece of land
without traveling over every foot of it,
especially when that value is determined
by an inflexible rule. But from some of
the bills, after inspecting the books and
blanks, it is fair to believe that a man of
average clerical nullity coum work but
an hour or two each day in order to make
up the time, the commissioners maj'
not feel like putting the county to a bill
ot costs, for there is urob-
ably no such thing as "going
behind the returns," but they
would probably be justified in cutting
down some of the bills and would save
money to the county in the end. How
ever, the remedy does not lie with the
commissioners, but with each precinct
whose voters should select a man whom
they believe will perform the service as
contemplated by law.
Bitten by a Horse.
John Keith, of O'Fallons, received an
injury Sunday morning that came near
being a serious affair, and as it is will lay
him up for a week or two. He was on a
horse leading one of his stallions out to a
pasture about two miles from tho house.
Passing near some horses the stallion
broke loose from him. After several
vain attempts to catch him, Mr. Keith
was sitting on his horso at some distance
from the other horses, when the stallion
made a charge at full speed, at first seiz
ing the horse 3Ir. K. was riding by the
neck. Being beaten off the infuriated an
imal seized Mr. K. by the left thigh, lift
ing him from the saddle and injuring him
severely, the Hesh being badly torn. For
tunately the stallion left the man and
proceeded after the saddle horse. Being
about two miles from home, Mr. Keith
became very weak from the loss of blood
before reaching the house. A telegram
was immediately sent for Dr. Duncan
who went up and dressed the wound.
Mr. Keith is doing well and will soon be

in stating that Conrad Scharmann was

ODDS AND ENDS.
While the hotel accommodations of
North Platte are good so far as they go.
Odds and Ends is of the opinion that a
strictly first-class hotel of large dimen
sions would make big money. The re
cent circular issued by the Pacific Hotel
Co. refusing to give members of
the T. Pi A. a two-dollar rate has caused
much dissatisfaction among the commer
cial men and many of them in fact near-
y all of them stop at the Pacific Hotel
in this city simply because there is no
other house. If a hotel was erected and
conducted in a proper manner it would
receive almost the entire transient trade,
besides a hundred or more day boarders
who are at present divided among tho
different private boarding houses of the
city. It is to be hoped that arrangements
cau be made for the erection of the pro
posed hotel on the corner of Sixth and
ocust, and the sooner the better.
Scores of farmers have been interroga
ted as to the prospects for corn and in
every case the answer has been of a grat-
fying nature. Indeed the indications for
heavy crop are so good that farmers
overlook the shortage in small grain and
seem well satisfied with tho prospective
result of their year's labor. Corn is King
and Lincoln county its kingdom.
And speaking of corn, Odds and Ends
acknowledges an invitation to visit a west
end producer next week snd gorge him
self with roasting ears, thus showing that
the grain is rapidly maturing. As this
farmer has 180 acres of corn it is thought
there will be sufficient to satisfy' O. and D's
Odds and Ends compliments the astute
editor of the Nebraskian on the effective
manner in which he occupied the pitch
er's box in Tuesday's game of ball.
Should Getzein, Clarkson or other leagne
pitchers become disabled before the close
of the season, North Platte can supply
the vacancy in the person of Mr. Walsh.
The 'hanging in efligy of Krier, which
took place at the west end of the depot
jard late last week, was a fitting rebuke
to that individual and his partial decisions
in the game of ball between North Platte
and Plum Creek. Unless the ridiculed
umpire has the cheek of a government
mule he will steer clear of this city.
The latest fashionable and proper caper
brought out by North Platte ladies is to

while down town yesterday drew aside the
fold of her dress and exhibited to Odds
and Ends one of the cute little animals
asleep in her pocket. This new depart
ure bids fair to create a furore at the east
ern summer resorts and a largely increas
ed demand for these pretty little rodents.
Quite a number of small bets have been
made on this afternoon's game of ball, the
wager generally being that the nayseeds
will not score over half a dozen runs. If
Stapleton pitches his usual game and is
well supported behind the bat, Odds and
Ends is of the opinion that the home nine
will not go round the diamond half as of
ten as they did in the games Saturday and
Sunday last Jesse Norton, the young
but promising curve pitcher, will occupy
the box for the North Plattes and if he
does as effective work as he did last Wed
nesday the visitors may be frequently
goose-egged. But we shall see what we

Tho game Saturday afternoon with the
Julesburg nine was an uninteresting one
because it was entirely too muen one
sided. The players from up the road are
in no way able to cope with the team of
this cit', and had not White taken com
passion on them in the seventn inning by
ntching the ball in a school-boy fashion
the result would have been a complete
shut-out. At the end of the eighth in

useless to play any longer and asked that
the game be called. Mills of Ogallala

that position in good shape, striking out

Wednesday the Press Gang, composed
of gentlemen more or less conversant

full account of the game, but lack of

On Wednesday of this week the junior
club of Plum Creek, composed of youths
from 17 to 20 years of age, came up with
the avowed intention of doing up the
