Methodist Change. i
At the Methodistconference atScotts

has been stationed at Lexington was
selected as superintendent of the North
Platte district, vice Supt. Chamberlain
who had served the maximum time and
was assigned the pastorato at c-rd. j
Rev. W. S. Porter, who had served
his allotted tune here, was assigned to
Orleans, nnd Rev. Cram, who was

J, It is understood that Supt-elect
Gaither will make North Platte his
"A Romance of the Underworld."
"A Romance of the Underworld,"
will be presented at the Keith next
Friday evening, with Holbrook Blinn
in the star role. The story deals with
the refusal of Richard, Elliott, a park
inspector for the city of New York, to
accept a bribe from a city contractor,
that a crooked deal may go through
and the consequent attempt to railroad
the young man to Sinjr Sine for this
refusal, as well as for his denunciation
of the contractor for daring to aspire
to the hand of his sister, Dora Elliot.
The brother believes that justice must
triumph and therefore does not heed
the threat thatdnanates fromO'Leary,
the contractor, but when arrested, sent
to prison and nearing sentence, he real
izes how yain was his trust. Through
the efforts of a young newspaper roan,
an aspiring lawyer, who takes the case
through his love for Doris, Elliott is
finally given his liberty, his good name
cleared and his enemy sent o the tombs
where he is detained for perjury. That
the situations are stirring goes without

School Rooms Crowded.
The unusually crowded conditition of
the schools of this city has resulted in a
somewhat complex situation which is
causing the school authorities consider
able worry and annoyance. At a spec
ial meqting of tho board of education,
Superintendent Tout gaye a report as to
the number of students in tho most
crowded grades and prompt action was
taken to relieve conjestion. In the
small building-of, tho east bchuol as
found the greatest difficulty for these
small pupils could not go far from
their owa school to attend any other,
In some cases where pupils had to sit on
tho front seats without desks, parents
sent cracker boxes to school and these
yvere utilized for desks, In some cases
nearly sixty pupils were crowded into
a room designed for thirty. In the
high school auditorium there are 1G4
seats. We have 230 enrolled. Every
seat in room "K" has been taken and
extra chairs have been placed in the
icar of the room. The remainder of
the high school students are seated in
the commercial room in the basement.
On the second floor thore arc two grade
rooms and these each have over fifty in
attendance. By sending the eighth
grade from the central sehool to tho
Washington building and bringing the
fifth grade from the east school to the
central we have taken care of all of
the pupils in the first ward. In the
Washington school the assembly room
was divided and another teacher was
added, making eight in that building.
Even now tho eight rooms of this build
ing are crowded to the limit. In tho
Lincoln school the enrollment is about
normal with new pupils coming in every
day. Supt. Tout is doing his.bcst to
getevery child a desk and expoctc to
reach this end before the week is over,
