On clear days his singing can be heard all over Maxwell. He must have attended singing school. A large number of persons from the Island and elsewhere were pres ent at the dance on the 21st inst. and everybody had a delightful time. The music was splendid, and at midnight the dancers re paired to the home of Mrs. McNa mara, where they were served with a bountiful supper, after partaking of which they returned to the school house to dance until the early hours. Why not Have a dance a mas querade ball on St. Patrick's Eve. March 17th. There is no reason why every one can't dance on that night, and it is generally celebrated by a dance in other places. There was a larger number of persons present at the last meeting of the literarv society than ever was here before. I know that I do not exaggerate when I sav that there were nearly one hundred in attend ance. Long planks and boards had to be carried in for seats, and even then many had to stand up or sit down on the floor. The first part of the programme consisted of reci tations, reading and songs. The singing schools sung two songs namely. "The Spring Time" and ''Good-night," aud received many compliments for their singing. The question debated was, "Re solved, that a man will do more for fame and honor than he will for money." It was decided in favor of the negative of course. The paper was read by Miss Ellen Mc- Cullough, George Clark officiated as president of the literary, as the real president was absent, and so feeling happy, as it was thought it couldn't rain 'in this part any more.

The Misses 1 Dolly and Myrtle Brunk, Katie Crahtree and Mary Wiberg, who have been attending school at North Platte, visited their may friends at Myrtle a few days last week, returning home on Mon day. The Christian Endeavor at White Plains is increasing in interest Last Sunday evening the house was well filled. The Misses Crabtree invited about twenty-young people to their home Saturday evening. Games were the feature of the evening and to say they enjoyed themselves is putting it very mild. At a season able time cake and pop-corn was served which all did justice to; each one going home feeling as though the)' had spent a very pleasant and sociable time. The literary society held at White Plains on Friday evenings is still being carried on with a great deal of interest. Last Friday evening the house was filled to the door, WE PAY CASH 100 CENTS ON THE DOLLAR AND SELL CHEAPER THAN ANY HOUSE IN THE CITY. KEMIE'S SLAUGHTER SALE--1895.

A pleasant time is reported by all in attendance On Wednesday evening about twen ty-five of Mrs. Jennie Goodwin's friends and neighbors called upon her, where the' spent a verj- pleas ant time in games of various kinds. until about eleven o'clock, when a very delicious and palatable repast was served, to which all did more than ample justice. Bee, who was expected home from Carter, Wyo., that evening, failed to put in an appearance, and consequently missed a good time. All returned to their respective homes feeling that they had been well paid for time spent in lendinsr their pres- ence. Pat. great was the order kept that you Wednesday afternoon'. They re could hear a pin drop. The next question to- be debated is, "Re solved, that the hope of reward is a greater incentive to action than the fear of punishment." As the spring time is approaching, farming will soon eommence and many will not have time to attend the literarv. therefore, while it does continue, let each one try to be prepared to perform his part well, and make the remaining weeks of the literary joyful affairs to be remembered with pleasure.

To Editor oe The Tribune: DExVR Sir: Will you permit a former resident of North Platte, who knows whereof he speaks, to add his tribute to the sweet memory of Mrs. John F. Hinman, of whose falling asleep I have only just been made aware through your columns? As the priest under whose spirit ual direction she was led to place herself almost unreservedly, I have of course a knowledge of the depths of her character that cannot be communicated to the world, but as the friend who was privileged to spend many hours with her in quiet conversation, and interchange of ideas, it is open to me to-day that I never saw clearer evidence of the workings of the grace of God. This was the more marked from the fact that in the earlier days of her painful illness, and of my efforts to lead her to put her trust in God. I she was much inclined to be rebel lious, but when at length the bar riers of spiritual pride were broken down there was never a complaint more, but only a calm, sweet, pa tient waiting for Christ. It was my privilege to convey to her from time to time the blessed sacrament of the body and blood of Christ, and in other ways to refresh her soul. It was also a great privilege to watch the development of that soul in that strength of character and beauty of holiness that bears such powerful witness for Christ and His truth. Day by day iu all these years the name of Augusta Hin man has found a place in my prayers for the sick and afflicted, side by side with those with whom I have been more closely connected. She has entered upon another stage of her endless life, where freed from the sufferings of this earthly life. she can grow in grace under the Feb. 27 Following claims al lowed on general fund: H. E.

May she rest in peace, and may we who remain have irrace to follow her good example. For the bereaved husband and motherless child all our warmest sympathies are awak ened. May the All Merciful fill their hearts with His most sweet consolations. Very truly yours, A, Geo. E. Jenner, Priest Studebaker Wagons Hershey & Go's. at Subscribe for the Semi Weekly Tribune, OF INTEREST TO IRRIGATORS- Editor Tribune: For the infor mation of those persons interested in the amount of water carried off by the North Platte river and what steps, if any, have been taken to ascertain the discharge of other streams of the state, I herewitli offer you the following for publi cation: Under the sundry civil expense bill for the year ending June 30th, 1895. tlie amount of S12,500 was ap propriated for the following item of expense in connection with the United States geological survey, i. e. : "For gauging the streams and determining the water supply of the United States, including the investigation of under-ground cur rents and artesian wells in the arid and semi-arid sections." This ap propriation is ridicuously small. The importance 'of knowing the amount of water in the running streams in that portion of the coun try dependent upon irrigation is very great. A few of the states have ample provisions for obtain ing this information; others have none. The-gaging of the streams in Nebraska has never been regu larly kept and recorded extending over any period of time. 'No sys tematic effort has been made to ascertain the amount of water carried each year. The department of the Uuited States geological survey above re ferred to was fortunately placed under the management of an ex perienced hydrographer, one who is in touch with the practical ideas of the west, and" who understands the problems presented to the builders and investors in canals and the users of water for irrigation. F. H. Newell who prepared the census report on agriculture by irri gation in the western part of the United States, is economically ex pending the appropriation. In this state, at North Platte, he has arranged to have the North Platte river measured once each month, and a gage has been set on the U.T P. R'y bridge to keep a record of. the daily rise or fall of the river. This it is intended to extend over a period of years, or as long as the appropriation will enable it to be done. The gage readings will be kept by the bridge tender. The measurements of the river are taken with extreme care from actual cross section, and TelnHfv carefully rated at intervals of twen ty feet. By request you may publish the following: Discharge of North Platte river Oct. 5th, 1894, 620 cubic feet per second. Discharge Nor 6th, 1894. 1227.15 cubic feet per second. The Frenchman, the Lonps and other streams are being measured. Very respectfullj, Charles P. Ross.
