This year affords extraordinary ad
vantages for improving and decor
ating in this direction. The stock
is much larger than has ever be
fore been brought to North Platte,
and embraces styles from the sim
plest and cheapest, to the most
elaborate and costly. In keeping
with the times, the prices are low
er than the same quality of goods
were ever before offered. He has
papers which will fit the require
ments of every pocket book, from
those resembling the lean and hun
gry kine mentioned in the Bible,
to the bulging purse of the mil
lionaire. Call and examine the
stock and prices, as a particular
pleasure will be taken in exhibit
ing the same to the public, as a
personal inspection will go a long
way toward making a purchase.

popular soubrette on the American
stage. She can sing better than
most women who dance. She is a
better dancer than most women
who sing. She is an acknowledged
actress, and her versatility is ad

that indescribable magnetism,
which makes her audience feel as if
she were akin to them, and thev
are proud of her. She has sur
rounded herself with one of the
strongest companies of singers and
comedians ever seen in one com
pany, and she gives them all a
chance to show what they can do,
and in her circo-comedy, "A Night
at the Circus," she gives her audi
ence full value for their money by

dividing over the administration of

of the patriots insisting that the

in expenditures, while the re

the office upon the high pressure,
