There is sufficient talent in
town for the formation of a musical
union'; and with a little effort such
an organization could be formed.
The union could include both vocal
ists and instrumentalists. Prof.
Garlichs will probably locate here
permanently and could be secured
to instruct the members. Those
interested in the matter should call a
meetimj and at least ascertain the
feeling in regard to the matter.
Such an organization would be of
mutual benefit to the members and
a good thing for the town.
Owing to lack of patronage the
Nebraska house, which for the past
four months has been conducted by
Oberst & Breternitz, was closed to
business Wednesday morning. The
hotel has lost money ever since it
has been under the management of
the above firm, and rather than con
tinue under such conditions until
business improved, it was decided
to close the house. It is a source of
regret that such a step was neces
sary, but it must be apparent that
there have been too many hotels in
town tor the amount of patronage.
The poverty bee given by the
Ladies of the G. A. R. on Wednes
day evening was well attended and
proved highly amusing. A trial
court was organized with Pat Sul
livan as judge and Jake Miller as
sheriff, and any one entering the
room or found peering in the win
dows was promptly arrested and
taken before the judge who imposed
a fine on the prisoner for wearing
good clothes and another fine for
having a hungry look. By the pay
ment of the fine the prisoner was
entitled to a supper of army.rations
corn bread, beans, "coffee, etc:
Mr. Sullivan was m his usual good
humor and some of the sentences
he pronounced convulsed the audi
ence with laughter.

idea that money is scarce in North
The Ottman store room is being
repapered preparatory to being oc

We learn that the health of
Mrs. Jno. Ellison, who has been at

W. O. Thompson, who cultivated
125 acres of land on the ditch, sold
his last season's crop for $2530.
This does not include the butter,
eggs, and etc, which were sold
during the year. Out of the above
amount he paid about $400 for
labor. This is additional evidence
that farming by irrigation pays.
Manager Goodman, of the Cody
ranch, is farming quite extensively
this year. He has put in 160 acres
of oats, will sow 100 acres to alfalfa
and his cornfield will contain be
tween 1600 and 1800 acres. As the
land is all under irrigation the crop
raised on the ranch this year will
be worth a snug sum.
Dr. Butt, the new dentist, has
arrived and will soon have his office
in shape,to receive callers.
Judge Sinclair's decision in the
case of Paxton & Hershey against
the Farmers' & Merchants' irriga
tion ditch company, which was ren
dered in the district court here on
Monday, is being given wide public
ity through the state press. The
decision is an important one, and
if sustained by the supreme court

very beneficial to the cause of irri
gation. The ladies of the Catholic
church held a social at the residence
of J. J. Sullivan Wednesday even

and discoursed some fine music
The receipts were thirty dollars.
The officers of the Lincoln

illustrated pamphlets descriptive of
the irrigated lands of the county.
This pamphlet, which will be en

President Fort, of the State
Irrigation Association, informs us
that arrangements are being made
to have on the state fair grounds
this fall a complete and practical
illustration of the several methods
of irrigating lands. As irrigation
is one of the most important sub
jects before the people of the west
part of the state, every effort should
be used on-their part to interest
the people of the eastern part.
WILL D CLARK A DIVIDEND.
Receiver Doolittle of the North
Platte National Bank authorizes
The Tribune to make the state
ment that a twenty per cent divi

the bank will be made within three

Not all claims against the bank
have been presented tor approval,
and those who have been dilatory
in this matter will not share in the
dividend soon to be declared. The
presentation of claims for approval
is a matter claimants should not
Those having claims against the
bank will no doubt be pleased to
learn that this dividend is to be so
early declared. It may also be
taken as evidence that Receiver
Doolittle is using every effort to
wind up the affairs of the bank as
early as possible.

Clinton,,the Jeweler, by .reason of his observation as well as
occupation, is able to give many profitable pointers. Like all
benedicts, he has a lively appreciation of the situation, and
his counsel will be as sympathetically as well as disinterestedly
given. ivJ ' ' CLINTON. THE JEWELER
WILL HE RETURN?
The Tribune had information
the early part of the week of the de
parture of C. L. Brill, manager of
the local business colllege, and that
he also took all his personal effects
with him, yet it was loth to believe
that he had "skipped the town.
Later developments, however, have
proven pretty conclusively that Brill
left with the intention of not return
ing, and that the business college
can be considered a thine or the
past. The condition Brill left mat
ters in is not satisfactory to many,
especially the dozen and a half
pupils who expected to receive di
plomas next week, bo tar as we
can learn Brill left few unpaid bills

The Woman's Relief Corps en
tertainment at the opera house
Tuesday evening was attended by
an audience that filled both the
floor and the gallery. The early
part of the evening was devoted to
speaking tableaux, vocal and in
strumental music, an exhibition of
fancy dancing by Delia Post, and a
drill by eight little girls dressed in
night gowns and caps. These two
latter numbers were the best on the
programme. At the conclusion of
these exercises the floor was cleared
and dancing was -engaged in until
shortly past midnight. During
the evening refreshments were
served. The net receipts of the
entertainment were about one hun
dred dollars. As the Woman's Re
lief Corps is one ofthe noblest char
itable organizations in the city, The
Tribune is pleased to note the suc
cess of the entertainment, and con
gratulates the ladies in charge on
the splendid result.

Harry Langdon has a
scheme. Being a believer in the
idea that those who will not work
should not eat, he has a small tract
of ground between the shade trees

apart for cultivation by the festive
tramp. At present the plot has
been worked about one-half over by
the industrious tramps how an
omalous this sounds after which
it is the intention to have it sub-
soiieo. &ome day, pernaps, some
typographical error when set at
this task, will decamp with the im
plement with which he is provided,
and pawn the same for the price of
a meal and a drink.
