which to preside over tho sessions of the

The patent that has expired applies only
to the hand instrument now used as
receiver, but patents on other apparatus
are still in force. Enough, however, has
become the property of the public so
that any one who desires can make, buy
or sell telephones with no fear of inf ring
ing the right of any one. The matter of
putting m a system could be undertaken
by home parties who have the welfare
of the city at heart and the city council
would doubtlest lend assistance. The
greatest cost at present would be for
wire and poles and the cost of raaintain-
taining would depend upon the number
of telephones put into use.

a creditable display of juvenilo forensic

with th scourge of northern climates
pneumonia, IT. T. Tobin's spirit passed
into the presenco of his creator. Al
though hifilast illness was but very "brief
his friends, anticipated tho inevitable,
yet the blow was hone the less severe.
Mr. Tobin came to North Platto some
five years ago from Iliff, Col., and
engaged in the grocery business, associat
ing himself with M. C. Harrington. By
his pleasant and accommodating ways ha
.built up a largo business and made a
friend of every one with whom ho came
.imo contact, bo true is this that we
ibeliova it can be trutfifully said that he
bad not an enemy in the entire commu
nity. Being just in tho primo of man
hood his death must produce a warniag
which will cause tho thoughtful person
to recall' tho words of tho psalmist
wherpin is stated the proposition that
'"man is'but of a few days." Death is
no respecter of persons, and is a great
leveler; the rich, the poor; the high, tho
low; all are within his domain and must
yield to.his icy touch. This common lot
of all is what caused the prince of poets
to exclaim that "one touch of naturo
makes tho world akin." And yet despite
tho specious sophistries of tho skeptic

tru9 christian mind tho hope of a reward
sufficient to recom

"Jerry's" whole monthly pay.
Engineers and all road men are liable
to meet with accidents which may
cripple them or cost them their lives.
For this reason we ; insure our lives so
that our families may not be "subjects
for county aid." "Jerry," I can assure
you the insurance companies charge, us
a good fat premium,, for faking these
risks. This is another item of expense
that men who follow "Jerry's" laborious
calling (leaningon a shovel) are-, not
subjected to. '
As to putting on style: I know of no

that charge can be brought A man
having any solf-respect surely derives
pleasure from seeing his wife and family
neatly and comfortably dressed and prp-J

more comforts will ho naturally provide
for his family. If this is putting-on ttylo
I think it is of a very mild form. With
reference to the garnishees I will say.

so unfortunate as to bo garnisheed who
brought that misfortune on himself by

Tho funeral obsequies took placo from

Tho services wore conducted by Rev.
M. OToole, and thoy wero of a thor
oughly befitting and deeply touching
character. In strong ard well chosen
langimge, tompored with true christian
charity, tho spoaker portrayod the many
virtues in the character of tho deceased;
and t6 the living who chooso to lead a
a religious life he held out the blessed
promise of a reward in the world to
como. Many expressions of pleasure
have been heard in regard to tho mas
terly words of the reverend gentleman.
Many minds were disabused of tho' idea,
by Teason of his romarks, that it was not
good to live, and die, in a christian faith.
Tho ceremonies wore attended by the
members of the Catholic Knights of
Afrierica, tho Ancient Order of Hiber
nians, the Improved Order of Rod Men
and Daughters of Pocahontas, together
with large numbors of our citizens. The
pall bearers upon tho part of the C. K.

Michael Thomas Tobin was born in
Chicago, 111., Nov. 1st, 1856. During tho
war ot the rebellion his father enlisted
in the U. S. navy and served on the war
vessel Carondalet, among other engage
ments being present at the blockading
of Island No. 10, and was mustered out
in 1865. In 1866 with his family he
moved to Omaha, Neb., and wnt to
work for the Union Pacific R'y in the
capacity of section foreman at what is
now the sue of (Jverton, ISeb. On April
23th, 1868, he was assassinated by Sioux
Indians under tho leadership of Red
Cloud. At this time M. T. Tobin,
the subject of this sketch, was but
a youth of twelvo years of nge,
and upon his young shoulders
fell many of tho family burdens. In
1869 the railroad company located the
family at Lone Tree, Nob what i3 now
called Central City. In 1879 the de
ceased came to North Platto and was
married to Mary Minerva, daughter of
Isaac Lamplujih. Of this union six
children wero born. For seven years ho
was section foreman at Iliff, Col!, for tho
U. P. Co. In 18S9 he located in North
Platte.embarking is tho mercantile busi
ness, since which time his lifo has been
as an open book whoso pages might bo
profitably scanned by our whole people.
May his ashes re?t in peace.
