Editor Tribune: The beauty
and glory of a city are nice shady
streets. More especially would it
be the case out on the bleak prairies
of western Nebraska, and condi
tions are now such that North
Platte can be made a perfect gem
at a very moderate expense. Rival
irrigating canals run on the north
and south sides of the city, and
arrangements might be made with
one of them to run a lateral across
the west side of the city so that
water could be furnished for all the
streets running east and west for
the purpose of irrigating trees
planted along the side walks on
both sides of the streets.
The city might contract for trees
and the owners of lots pay for trees
in front of same. In a very few
years we could have over a mile
square of shady streets. The trees
would make the streets cool and
would be a great protection against
the spread of fire and the destruc
tion of tornados.
Now is the time lo make prepara
tion and next fall or spring have
the trees put out.

Labrador was faintly outlined, and as the

this feeling was strengthened when, as
we turned our prow northward, we
