Ever and anon reports are circulated
that tho Burlincrton will soon" hnrrin
to build its line of road up the Platte
valley, and this has led us to have
false hopes, for tho "soon" is apparent
ly as far off as it was three years ago.
Tho Lincoln Journal last Sunday con
tained the following, which is not very
It will be severn! years, at least, be
fore tho pqrlington builds tho proposed
lino of roauVup the Platte valley. That
statement comes from a high source in
"The' now line now being built in
Wyoming," it is said, "will bo con
nected with tho Nebraska system near
Guernsey. Then freight can be sent
via Alliance to tho west over this line
or west to Denver over the main line
and thoico north where the new lino
will be reached. Eventunlly, in the fin
ishing of the big scheme which has
been planned tho Platte river lino will
be built, extending from Kearney to
North Platto and Bridgeport, but thnt
part of the work is a long way off.
There is so much to bo done before
tho necessity for that line will be
felt that no guess at all accurate can
be mado on when it will be built.
"Tho territory such a dine would

a surplus in that territory to divide.
Until tho line is needed for through

.North Platto Has Surprise at
-. ' Gothenburg.
Instead of an easy game at Gothon
burg Friday, tho local high school foot
bull tUam.had to extend itself to the
utmost to win.
Gothenburg, since their irnmo hero
two weeks ago, had mado numerous
bhifts in their lineup, placing many
players in tho line who had played hero
in the back field. They had also de
veloped a forward pass which is
superior to any used against North
Platto this season nnd used a delayed
half back play around tackle which
went for long gains during the first half
of the game.
Gothenburg kicked oft to North
Platto who enrried tho ball to Gothen
burg's five yard line whero they were
iienalized fifteen yards for pushing, it
being North Platte's ball on Gothen
burg's fifteen yard line nnd a fourth
down, a forward pass failed and tho
ball went over to Gothenburg. By a
succession of successfully executed for
ward passes, lino bucks nnd round
tncklo plays Gothenburg enrried tho
hall to North Platte's ten yard lino and
M'orcd on a cleverly executed forward
pass. North Platte received the kick
uir and by consistent gains by tho backs,
assisted by Norris from tackle position,
hcored a touch down, Norris failed on
luck goal. Gothenburg 7 North Platto
0. Gothenburg received the kick ofl"
and by pursuing tho same tactics,
carried tho ball for another score, and
kicked out. Gothenburg 14, North
Platto 0. North Platto receivd tho
kick off and nftor advancing the ball
passed tho middle of tho field, lost it on.
downs. Gothenburg advanced the bal
to North Platte's twenty-five yard line
where they wore compelled to try for a
field goal, the kick being low and hitting
a N rth Platto player, bounded over
the crossbar for a goal. Scoro Gotoen-
uurg it, ANOEui nauu u.
North Platto received tho ball on
their 20 yard lino. After tho ball had
changed hands several times, North
Platte recoived it in mid field n,nd with
only a couple of minutes to play went
through Gothenburg for another touch
down, Norris kicking goal. Tho first
half ended Gothenburg 17, North Platte
At tho beginning of tho second half,
North Platto kicked to Gothenburg,
who though making numerous gnins
thoughout tho half, were unable to
gain consistently and North Platte's
gonl, after tho first naif, was not dan
gerously threatened. On tho othor
hand, North Platte's oll'ensc became
more consistent as tho half progressed,
ctossing Gothenburg's goal lino three
time, ono scoto being disallowed, Russel
who mado it, being penalized for hurd
ling. Norris kicked both gonls nfter
tho touchdowns, making tho final scoro
