Complete election returns give the
republican control of both houses of
the Wyoming legislature, thus insuring
the return of F. E. Warren to the
United States senate. The result is an
appreciation of Senator Warren's work
for Wyoming in securing federal build
ings and big appropiatlons for Ft.
Russell. More federal appropriations
pjr capita have gone into Wyoming
than into any other state, for which
Senator Warren is responsible. And
you can't fault him for tho desire to
build up his own state.
When the North Platte high school
foot ball team secured its game with
Sterling, it was then predicted that it
would bea game that would test the
strength of the local team and predic
tions of North Platte's defeat were
made up until the time the game was
called. The result was an oyerwhelmn
ing score for North Platte. Now tho
Cheyenne team, which plays here
Thanksgiving day, is the "boogy man,"
and again predictions of North Platte's
defeat are made. That's not the spirit
to display; even if you do think the game
is to be close, boost all the harder for
North Platte; show the boys that you
have confidence in their ability to win.

of God or man, unloosened and carried
away the irietal sign of Dr. L. C. Drost
at the entrance of the McDonald State
Bank. Just how the thief expects to
realize money on the sign, or to what
use he will put, is difficult of solution.
Dr. Dross is inclined to believe that
the follow who stole it was actuated by
a spirit of unalloyed cussedness.
