SATUBDAY, KABCS 3d,
The Paxton Pilot made its bow
to the public this week. Published
at the thriving village of Paxton in
Keith county, it has a fine field and
'will be a success from the start.

The strike of the engineers and

way system commenced Monday.
Traffic at first was entirely suspend

sail and a few freight trains were
moving. The company manifests a
4'ttposition to light to the bitter end,
njjardless of consequences. In a

time of great inconvenience and loss

The county commissioners are
linking old delinquent, non-collect-aUe
taxes from the tax list. This
is all very well, and something that
alMild be done from time to time,
we believe the law says every two
years; but the amount that has thus
Wen lost to the county is consider
able. There is is no need of refer-
f iag to the past. The tax has not
been collected and cannot be col
lected now. But a new leaf should
be turned over and a new practice
adopted in future. It is an injus
tice to the man who pays his taxes
as regularly as the year rolls round,
to allow a portion of the people to
escape without paying. If the
treasurer works strictly as the law
directs this would not be at least
the per cent of non-collected taxes
would be very small. The present

Dear Sirs: Myrtle
not having been represented before
in your correspondence, I would say
there is such a place about 20 miles
northeast of North Platte, on a high
divide, which represents some of the
finest agricultural land in the state.
School districts and their bound
aries are the principal questions
agitating this community at present.
At the present time there are three
petitions out: one to throw out the
southern half of district 29 (Myr
tle) they not agreeing on the lo
cation of the school house in the
old boundaries; another for a new
district between Myrtle and Whit
tier, which takes off their territory;
and another to be the Coxe district
which takes -from Whittier, Gar
field, and McPherson districts. All
are badly needed and we predict
Quite a number of our young peo
ple attended the lyceuni at Whittier
last Saturday evening and were well
entertained. The regular debate
dispensed with, they had a mock
trial divorce case. The legal talent
of the place was well represented.
The Judge granted the divorce, on
the grounds according to evidence
their characters were too bad to live
in connubial relations.

came Out for a promenade on the
sidewalk. The ladies and others
passing along set up such a noise
that it disturbed the nerve of his
ratship and he ran out into the
street and climbed into the wagon
of a passing expressman. The ex
pressman immediately Jumped down
and 8eizinghisJhorses by the bits,
called for apoliceman to remove the
rat. The policemaiurefused to en
danger his life in any such way. A
street car came along and the driver
yelled to -the expressman to get off
the track; The expressman allowed
he wouldn't go a step farther until
the frightful animal was removed
from his wagon. A street blockade
was of course the result. Finally a
dudish looking young man from the
country appeared upon the scene
and learned the occasion of the
stoppage of traffie. He got upon
the wagon wheel, grabbed the rat
by the tail and laid him out with a
sudden jerk on the cold stones of
