Young John Keliher has been offered, and accepted, the position of master mechanic's clerk at Little Rock, Ark., through the kindness of Frank Reardon formerly master mecnanic oi the shops here.

Through the kindness of his friend Mr. O'Kem, county clerk Burritt this morning received a large invoice of interesting public documents for gratuitous distribu tion. If judiciously used they should be able to encompass Mr. Burritt's re-nomination in spite of the machinations of his envious companions who are pops for reve nue only. The irrigation ditch on the north side, constructed by Messrs. Evans, Hall and Hubbartt, is now Hearing completion and in a week or ten days the water will be flow ing through it This ditch is of sufficient capacity to water 2500 acres of land, and there is fullv that amount of fine, fertile land under it The work on this ditch has been pushed forward without any blow or bluster, and probably not one-tenth of our people knew it was under construction. It will prove of great financial benefit to the owners, and when the land is under cultivation, which it will be iaihe near future, it will materially increase the business of North Platte. Our citizens hail with de light the completion of ever' new irrigation ditch. ing for the purpose of issuing li censes to the saloon keepers.

Gates and his assistants. The. dandelion crop on many lawns this spring is especially large and it will be well to get rid of the plant before it seeds, else the crop next year will be much larger. The dry goods stores of the city now close at 8 p. m. each even ing except Saturday. This new rule went into effect last evening and is duly appreciated by the clerks. The Hotel Neville will serve an excellent supper to-morrow night to attendants at the May Party. On this occasion mine host Feder hoof will probably do himself proud. Some evil disposed persons have been pulling up trees recently planted by Val Sharmann on his vacant block in the Third ward. The same kind of mean work was done last season. Dr. F. M. Somers has sold his practice to Dr. Hatch and will leave for Colorado about the middle of May. Dr. Hatch assumes the prac tice to-morrow, and The Tribune trusts his professional career will be a successful one. J. A. McMichael and assistants are engaged this week in making a headgate for the big lateral being put in by the old ditch company. It is being made in sections here in town and wili be put together at the head of the lateral. by reason of the absence of some of those who were to participate. However, those present had a de lightful time, and were favored with a bountiful supply of refreshments. -Frank Knott, a demented boy about seventeen years of age and a son of Joseph Knott, of Hershey, has caused his parents considera ble trouble of late by running away from home. His father sent word recently to Sheriff Miller to come and get the boy, as he wanted him taken to the home for the feeble minded. The request was granted and the bov brought to town, but word was subsequently received from the father to the effect that he had changed his mind and did want the boy sent to the home. mi i 3 j xne iaa is at present occupying quarters at the jail.

Cotton leaves to-morrow for Houston, Texas, via Kansas City. G. R. Hammond accompanies him each having live stock to look after while in transit. G. Washington Winkowitch, the bantam engineer of the Union Pa cific system, was in this city Sun day renewing old acquaintance ships. At present he is hostling at Sidney. Henry Goodman came down from Denver Saturday. Mrs. Goodman arrived on this-morning's train and J. A. is now happy. Miss Josie will'stay in Denver until the close of school. Mr. and Mrs. G. R.

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. - James Belton. When Buying Minneapolis EOUR Why not get the BEST?

At this point they will be over two days behind their schedule time on account of the slight ill ness of Mrs. Mcllrath, which de layed them three days.

Lincoln county, or at least a good portion of it, was visited by a rain last evening; not one of the sizzle-sozzle-for-fif te e n-m i n u t e s variety, but more of the nature of a gentle cloudburst, and it continued for six times fifteen minutes.
