One time a blind man was riding
through the country looking for a fertile
farm. The boy who was driving the team
would describe the land. Finallj' they
came to a cultivated field which had ap
parently produced a good crop, but the
boy said the weeds were higher than the
fence. The blind man said that would
do, he would purchase that farm; if the
land produced big weeds it would raise
good crops. If that gentleman should
come to North Platte at the present time'
lie would applying the same principle
purchase Jialf the city. The council and
the street commissiouer had a talk on the
subject of weeds two weeks ago, but talk
will not kill weeds in a rainy time. We
have heard of meu being talked to death,
but weeds never. For the looks of the
thing a few vigorous days work with the
scythe should be indulged in .
The reason for the annullment of the
marriage of K. C. Barton to Miss Bridges
of Ogdensburg, N. Y., as published in
the Omaha Republican of July 26, is that
previous to the marriage! the woman had
entered into a conspiracy with one Hol
ism, a man with whom she was in love,
.to the effect that she would marry Barton,
for whom she did not care a fig; that
Hullam should meet the husband and
wife at Montreal, where they expected to
stop during their wedding journey: that
Hullam should there induce Barton to
drink; that the liquor should be drugged ;
that the stupefied man should then be
led or conveyed to a house of prostitu
tion; that in this predicament he should
be discovered in the most public way
possible; that his dishonored bride should
leave him in burning indignation and
should immediately, bring suit for divorce
and alimony; on the money thus obtained
Hullam and the divorced woman could
live in opulence. For some reason Hul
lam did not materialize at Montreal and
the conspiracy failed. In the mean time
a confidential friend of Hullam's, who.
was in-the plot, had weakened and sur
rendered to a friend of Barton's a batch

Where does the smoke come from
has $eesf a query on the lips of almost
everyperson during the past four days.
Although Saturday was cloudless, the
sun appeared as a fiery red ball in the
heavens all day and Sunday could be
called an Indian summer day. In south
ern Dakota, Wyoming, Montana in fact
through the entire northwest an
unusual drouth has prevailed, and forest
and prairie fires have been raging for a
month. The smoke came from those
There will be considerable loss of
grain on account of the inability of the
harvesting machines to cut it in time.
Farmers are censured frequently for the
reckless manner in which they sometimes
buy reapers, but several in this vicinity
say they have lost money this year by not
buying. Hershey Sa Co. sold two last
week, one being set up on Saturday even
ing and started on Sunday. One farmer
told a Tribune reporter that he had en
gaged a neighbor to cut his grain, but
perceiving that the man would not be
able to reach his grain in time, hastily
came to town, bought a machine, and by
running night and day has cnt 140 acres.
In this way he saved his own grain and
that of several neighbors.

load of twenty-one head of fine Oregon

son, several of them being trotting bred
from a sire that last fall showed three
consecutive mile heats in 2:30 and better.
The owner of the latter offered to drive
him three heats in 2:25 or better if he
would receive the price he desired for

time when it is remembered that the ani

Becommenned for Commissioner.
The people of Myrtle. Whittier, Gar
field and Arnold precincts believe that
they are entitled to the County Commis
sioner who, is to be elected this fall. They
have become aware also that they could
not secure the nomination of a man unless
they were united. Accordingly with the
object of agreeing upon some one a meet
ing was called, by the committemen of.
the four precincts, which convened st
Whittier on Saturday the 20th inst. Al
though it was a busy time with farmers,
there was a fair gathering of representa
tive men. Morey Alexander of Garield
precinct was chosen chairman and Austin
Burdick of Arnold secretary. There
were delegates from Arnold, Garfield,
Whittier and Myrtle. After discussion,
Geo. W. Peterson was endorsed as the
choice of the meeting for County Commissioner.

The South Platte- Bridge.
The plank on the South Platte river
bridge are pretty well worn out, and for
some time there has existed a necessity
for a new floor. The bridge tools inad
equate to accommodate the large travel
on that road. In view of these facts the
county commissioners decided to replank
the bridge, and at the same time, as the
additional cost would not be- very great,
widen the structure to sixteen feet, thus
avoiding the dead-locks that often occur
at night on account of teams being unable
to pass each other the roadway being so
narrow. Although somewhat in doubt
as to the faads available, the board decid
ed to wideaBad rebuild, and advertised
for bids. On the board's proposition, the
following bids were received:
J. F. Hinman, $2.80 per lineal foot
J. L. Means, 3. 27 per lineal foot.
EL D. Thomson, $2.99 per lineal foot.
Mr. Thomson filed a supplementary
bid, to the effect that if allowed to build
on Mr. Means specificatiens, he would
make a reduction of about 18 cents per
foot, or $3.81 per foot.

from the defendant's attorneys and gave
