From the present indications
Lincoln county and North Platte
people will have to get a move upon
themselves if they make a display
in the great parade at the State fair
in Omaha which attract more than
ordinary attention, as the rivalry
between the various counties and
cities of Nebraska promises to be
unusually great Plenty of mate
rial is at hand to makei display
which will make the people living
east of the one hundredth meridian
open their eyes in astonishment.
All that is-necessary to accomplish
this is for layor Baker to immedi
ately calla public meeting of the
citizens t&yrorhand in hand with
the Lincoln Co. Immigration Ass'n
for this purpose. In a multitude ot
counsel there is wisdom, and at such
a meeting probably ideas would be
suggested which would be new to
members of the association. Let
the meeting be called at once, as
there is no time like the present to
