An Alliance printer passed through
the city Wednesday on Jiis way to a visit
' with Gothenburg friends. "He made the
journey across the country upon a bicy
cle. His costume consisted of a pair of
green knickerbockers and a look of fa
tigue. Nearly every dilapidated crosswalk
in the Second ward has been torn out
and replaced with new ones. These im-
provements were badly needed, and af
ter the dirt filling is settled Mayor

"English Billy's" team took a lively
little spin down Iiocust street yesterday
afternoon. Upon reaching the Court

. damage was done.
According to signal officer Piercy
Tuesday and Wednesday of this week
were the record smashers in the way of
temperature for the month of Septem
ber for this locality. Upon each of those
days the mercury stood at 100 degrees.
This is rather singular, as on the morn
ing of the 7th there was a light frost.
Last night the Gordon cornet band
of this city presented N. Klein what is
undoubtedly the finest Eb clarinet ever
seen here. It is of the famous. C. G.
Conn manufacture, and has a five years'
i guarantee, which is a sufficient indica
tion of the maker's faith in the durabil
ity and other good qualities of his handi
work. The instrument is handsomely
silver plated, and is indeed a thing of
beauty, and we trust!" that in I the skill
ful hands of the Professor it may prove
a joy forever.' John Lonergan made the
presentation in behalf of the band boys,
and his speech, in the language of one
of the members, "completely knocked
Klein off the perch," and the Professor
could only articulate that the instru
ment was too dry and needed wetting.
T, J. Foley has become interested

By reason of not consulting a cal
endar, an error occurred in Tuesday's
paper in regard to the M. W. A. "log
rolling" at Sutherland. The correct
date is Friday, Sept. 20th.
The North Platte mills continue to
pay the top market price for grain, but
old Agricola, who is a little timid for
fear of another famine upon the uplands
next season, is a little slow in letting go
hiB grip upon the same.
A traveling man in the city yester
day is authority for the statement that
it was contemplated that the best of the
Nebraska agricultural exhibit at the
State fair would be taken to the Atlanta
exposition. It would be a great scheme.
Quite a number of emigrants from
the dry portions of Colorado and Wy
oming passed through this city yester
day. In one of the outfits was noticed
a collection that would do the heart of
"Joe" Zeibert good. It consisted of a
cage containing a number of wild geese
and pet rabbits.
Rev. L. P. McDonald would bo glad
to sell some articles of furniture at the
Episcopal rectory. An Art Garland
hard coal stove, as good as new, a small
heater, a fine folding bed, hat-rack and
dining room table may be had very cheap
by applying at the rectory.
The North Platte Broom Factory
has completed and sent specimens of its
work to the State fair at Omaha to be
placed in the Lincoln county exhibit.
They are very handsome specimens of
the broom-maker's handiwork. Fred
Ginn resumed histoid vocation long
enough to assist Charley Minshall in
Arthur C. Bla.e and a young man
named Hughes, arrived in the city
Wednesday evening on their way east
on bicycles. The former claims a Col
orado championship. The last named
was rather badly used up by his trip to
this city, and they spent Thursday hero
recuperating. Blake gave a very fine
display of trick and fancy riding yester
day. . B. I. Einman is having a portion of
the county road northwest of this city
city broken up. It is said the land ad
joining has been sold under contract for
agricultural purposes next season, hence
the action. This has aroused consider
able indignation upon the part of our
citizens, and litigatiou may follow. As
a counter irritant some are urging the
forcing of Mr. Hinraan's property into
the city limits.
Ladies' kid gloves, best quality, 95
cents a pair at The Wilcox Dept. Store.
While Prof. James Hall, not "the pu
gilist but North Platte's lightning ma
nipulator of the razor, was absent, he
managed to secure surreptitiously or
otherwise, a supply of the latest stylo
patterns and modes of amputating tho
hirsute covering of the head without
pain or the use of gas. That other an
esthetic, the barber's melody, is but lit
tie used, and his methods will not fail j
to please even the most fastidious. Give
him a call at Doc Sizemore's place when
you wish the most fashionable hair cut
or an easy shave.
While the capturing of the first
prize at the State fair for the best col
lection of agricultural products would
be a great thing for the people of Lin
coln county, considered as a state mat
ter, yet Thr Tribune's pioposed potato
train, and other agricultural products,
would be a greater advertisement, and
have a much wider effect. Besides it
would not cost anything like as much
to prepare tho display as it would if it
were intended for competition. The
matter should not be allowed to lag, but
should be taken hold of with vigor by
tho Lincoln County Immigration Ass'n
and pushed vigorously forward to a suc
cessfuLcompIetion. A number of ministers of the Pres
byterian denomination from tho district
west of Central City and north of tho
B. & M. railway, assembled in regular
presbytery session in this city Tuesday
of this week and held a two days' meet
ing. Regular routine business of im
portance to the church was transacted.
The attendance for variouscauses was
not nearly so large as it should have
been, but" eighteen ministers out of
about fifty being present. The repre
sentatives were very hospitably enter
tained by our people, and are loud in
the praises of the treatment afforded
them. Wednesday forenoon the dele
gates present who desired were given an
opportunity to view the irrigated dis
trict west of this city, an account of
which appears elsewhere in this paper.
On Wednesday evening the session
session closed its labors, feeling that it
had been a -profitable one despite the
limited attendance. -
NOWS THE TIME.
Last winter our people were very on
thusiastic in regard to the erection of a
beet sugar factory, but the matter was
deferred until our comprehensive sys
tem of irrigation was more nearly com
pleted. At present this objection to the
enterprise is very "nearly obviated, and
there is no reason why the agitation of
the subject may not be resumed. Like
the Chinese these institutfons have come
to stay,and become an important factor in
the upbuilding and development of our
country's wealth. The industry has
passed the experimental stage, ana is
destined to become a great success.
-Liincoln county possesses in excep
tional degree all the elements necessary
to the successful cultivation and propa
gation of the sugar beet. Under this
system of agriculture many more thous
ands of acres of her soil could be profit
aoiy tinea. JNeitner nara times nor
drouth seem to be able to cut much-fig
urein opposition to the, growth of a
healthy sugar beet.
in a numoer or cmes ana towns in
Nebraska the matter of the erection of
sugar factories is being carefully can
vassed, and North Platte cannot afford
to lag behind the procession. Within
the next decade the sugar beet industry
is bound to rival in value the present
output of any two of her greatest agri
cultural crops at this time. It be
hooves this city, then, to be up and do
ing. If it is not possible at the present
to procure the erection of a manufao
tory which will be able to turn out the
finished product upon the market, let us
secure reduction works where the first
stages may be accomplished, as a sort of
nucleus around which a larger plant and
refinery may be constructed. The
present is the proper time for the initial
steps to be taken in the matter in order
that fanners may havo ample time to
properly prepare tho ground for next
year's crop. .
It is the opinion of expert beet-growers
at Grand Island and Norfolk that
had they the use of our system of irri
gation that they could show results in
this direction which would astonish the
world. If, as admitted, that bv means
of irrigation "wo can discount them in
other kinds of crops, why not in the
matter of the culture of the sugar beet?
It is a great project for tho advance
ment of Lincoln county and North
Platte, and it should be at once taken
hold of by our people and pushed for
ward to a successful consummation.
The Grand Island band at the State
fair next week will be reinforced by
Prof. Benesch and three of the best
players of Kearney's Midway band.
Tom Brown, the drayman, was se
verely kicked by one of his horses in

As an indication of the number of
people that will attend the State fair
from this place it is said that over 100
passes were received here in one day
for railway employees who are making
calculations upon attending.
Who would think that Dennis Red
mond would ever evolule into a newspa
per man? Yet such is the fact. Since
last June he has been getting out
boom (?) editions for various Texas pa
pers, and reports that a great country
for the working of that sort of snaps.
The meeting of the gun club to-night
is one of especial interest to its mem
bers, as the matter of ordering a now
supply of birds, adoption of a constitu
tion, and the purchase of a club. medal
or trophy to be competed for monthly
will be considered. A full attendance
of the membership is desired.
T. A. Fort returned Thursday morn
ing from a visit to the State fair grounds
in Omaha. He stated that the Pierce
county people were the first upon the
grounds with their exhibit, and were
claiming that they would capture the
first prize; but in his opinion they would
weaken from their claim when they saw
tho Lincoln county display.

The Presbyterian, church extended an
invitetiqto tntfiTnembers of the Kear
ney Presbytery while hero5 to visit
the lands'; under irrigation and
see the results of-the artificial applica
tion of wateas" shown by -the farms in
this vicinity. The interest manifested
by the delegates was sufficient to cause
them to adjourn tho forenoon session
Wednesday in order" -to accept. At 8
o'clock a. m. fifteen delegates took seats
in carriages "furnished by Messrs. Dil
lon, Hinmau, Hiller, Swarthout and Pal
mer, and were driven oyer the following
route: Through a part of the residence
pprtion of North Platte; past the Cody
residence to the Cody ranch, with a stop
at ranch buildings, thence over a part of
tho Cody lands now in corn, alfalfa,
broom corn ana hay. From the Cody
ranch they wero driven over the lands of
Isaac Dillon. The trees, alfalfa, pota
toes and corn were favorably commented
upon, as was also the Cody & Dillon ca
nal, Mr. Hilliker suggested that there
was a watermelon patch in the vicinity
but somo said, that perhaps the preach
ers could find them. Without further
delay several watermelons were collected
and eaten. One of the delegates said
he understood that fruit could not be
raised in this vicinity. When told that
it could be, he-said he would like to see
it. They were then driven to the farm
of H. Otten. Mr. Otten being at home,
took them through his orchard, showing
them thrifty apple, plum and pear trees
and grapes of which thoy were invited
to eat. All were highly pleased with
the showing, as well as the courtesy
shown them by Mr. Otten. The gentle
man who had expressed the desire to see
the fruit said' that he was well repaid
for his trip if he saw nothing else.
After leavirig the Otten farm the del
egates were driven north and west past
a number or ditch farms. They ex
pressed themselves as highly pleased
with the appearance of things in gen
eral, and regretted the lack of time to
make a more thorough examin ation of
the results of farming by irrigation.
