The Locust street crossing was the
scene of another fntal accident Saturn
day evening about 9:30 when "Teter"
Harris was run down by a switch en
gine and so badly injured that death
ensued an hour later. At the time
Harris attempted to walk over tho
crossing the wind was blowing a gale

engine, neither did the engine crow
see him until he was ground under the
wheels. Both legs were amputated at
the knee and lie was otherwise muti
lated about tho body. Ho was carried
to the depot and Doctors McCabe and
Kerr summoned, but they found life
fast ebbing away and the unfortunate
man beyond their aid.

after hearing the testimony of tho
switch engine crew retusned a verdict
that did not place blame on any one.

When we first offered our true blue serges
to the public we xucre prepared to supply the
finest serges possible to make. We knew the
colors ivould not fade, iuc sold them with the
utnost confidence and they always bore out our
recommendation of them. So surpassingly good
were they, and so absolutely faultless in make and
fadeless in color, that we decided that in the fu
ture we luill put a positive "stringless" guarantee
on them. This is the only store in North Platte
with confidence enough in their Blue Serges to
guarantee their color,

Discuss nepot Proposition.
Seventy-five or more citizens gathered
at tho court houso last ovoning, dis
cussed the depot proposition, and after
debating tho subject for an hour and a
half, left tlo matter just where they
iounu it at the start tho meeting was
barren of results. President Mohlor
hnd said that he had recommended nn
appropriation of $336,000 for a new
round house, coal shutes and other ter
minal improments for North Piatto;
he had also included in his budget
$85,000 for n now depot; ho did not
think the directors would allow both:
while the company wanted the terminal
improvements ahead of tho depot, the
citizens were insisting on a depot; ho
put up to the pooplo the question which
did they want first, tho round house
and other improvements or tho depot.
To discuss the proposition the meeting
had been called. Remarks were made by
Messrs. Seeborger, Patterson, Keefe,
Neville, Hoagland, Fathor McDaid, Dr.
Quigley, Bare, Martini and osiers.
Some iavored a straightout domand for
a new depot, others favored the tormi
na! improvements, while others thought
best to keep hands off nnd not attempt
to interfere with tho plans of tho com
pany. The lotterview finally prevailed,
and President Seebergor of tho Cham
ber of Commerce was authorized to
communicate with President Mohler
that tho North Piatto peoplo wanted
both tho depot and the terminal im
provementsand God speed the day
when we could have both.
