Remember all these goods are new and clean, and you will find your
sizes and measure perfect. Y u will not get one shoe No. 4 and the
other No. 5. One of our competitors boasted in last week's paper about
being such an honorable and straightforward merchant. In proverbs.
King Soloman said that yon should be praised by others and not by
vourself. I can show a record in the various places I have done busi
ness that 1 have always, dealt square with 1113' customers and always
paid a hundred cents on the dollar and can back it by some of the
largest wholesale dealers in the United States, and this is more than the
boasting merchant can do. I never had aivy lire lawsuits or any other
lawsuits trying to beat 1113' creditors. Let those boasting merchants go
and look up their record and they will never again boast about being
honorable and straight. So far as competition is concerned, such com

best goods that are made in the country; whereas those boasting mer

NORTH PLATTE. HOTELS.
North Platte is better supplied
with good hotels than almost an
other town ot twice its size in the
west. Four hostelries, with ac
commodations for two hundred
guests, invite the patronage of the
people who live in and visit the city.
On Saturday last Oberst & Breter
nitz formally opened the Nebraska
House and gave a dinner which
would do credit to a Delmonico.
This house has been renovated and
refurnished and presents a neat and
inviting appearance, and we predict
will do a good business under the
new management. J. C. Federhoof
opened the new Hotel Neville the
latter part of the week, moving in !
before the" building was finished in"
detail. These latter improvements
have since been completed, and a
formal and appetizing" opening
dinner will be given to-morrow.
The hotel presents an appearance
that must prove inviting to the tired
and hungrv traveler. In addition
to these hotels we have the Pacific
and the Hotel Central, both of
which are well conducted.

water could be raised with out any

not a quarter section in Nebraska
that properly handled would not

of surface water that other wise
runs to waste each year. The state
of Missouri has more pools over, its
surface than any other state, and
this is cause for her good crops
