At seven o'clock yesterday morn
ing at the home of the bride's par
ents in this city Geo. H. Hirst was
united in marriage to Miss Anna,
eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
McNamara. The ceremony was
performed by Rev. A. W. Graves in
the presence of the family and a
very limited number of guests. Im
mediately following the ceremony
a sumptuous wedding breakfast
was served, and the bride and groom
left an hour later for Indianapolis,

This marriage takes from North
Platte a very estimable and highly
popular young lady'. Since early
childhood she has resided in this
city, attended the public schools,
graduated with credit to herself,
and for several years rendered effi
cient service as a teacher in the
public schools. Possessing every
virtue and character which goes to
make up the true woman, she will
ever prove a kind, devoted and
faithful wite, and Mr. Hirst is cer
tainly to be congratulated upon
having secured for a life companion
a lady- possessing such a happy
combination of good traits.
The groom prior to last January
was employed for a year or more as
a machinist in the U. P. shops in
this city. During his residence
here he won the friendship of every
acquaintance, for in him was found
the qualities ot a straightforward
and exemplar' young man. En
tirely void of ill habits and pos
sessed of a good business head, the
young- man has accumulated suffi-
cient of this world's goods to insure
for himself and wife immunity
airainst the gaunt wolf. He has of
late been employed at Indianapolis,
and is an expert at his trade.
"While the wedding was a quiet
one, it was a very pretty one, the
only feature partaking of a sem
blance of a regret being the arrival
of a profusion of flowers from Oma

THE FARMERS' PARADISE.
Ed. Tribune: In company- with
my "better half" and Mr. and Mrs.
David Minshall I inspected the ditch
country between here and Suther
land last Tuesday. On the Otten
farm grain, fruits and vegetables
look fine, and on the farm of W. L.
Park is to be seen the finest potato
field in the state. Mr. Park's large
young orchard is in a healthy con
dition. His alfalfa fields are fine.
On the McKee farm was seen a
field of wheat that will average at
least forty bushels to the acre. We
took dinner on the Hershey farm
and saw about everything which
grows in this latitude trees full
of choice apples, vines full of
grapes, peanuts, vegetables of all
kinds, and tame grasses.
Now I have this to say to those
farmers who are talking of leaving
this country to hunt farms: Don't
do it. There are ' thousands of
acres of land in the valley between
here and Sutherland that can be
irrigated and there's plenty ot water
to do it. There is no discount on
the quality of the land. Instead
of leaving the county, rent or buy
fort- or eighty acres under one ot
the ditches and 3-011 are assured of
success; and especially so if you
display the same intelligence used
b- farmers in the older states.
Don't leave this laud to hunt for
better, for you will never find it.
I have farmed in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois-
and Wisconsin, and have
never seen a better chance for a
farmer to make money, than on
land under the irrigating ditches
of Lincoln county, I mav have
more to say on this subject in the
future. R. A. McMurray.
A six year old daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. M. h. Brooks.of Maxwell,
was lost in the hills north of that

so ho used to be brought home half a
