North Platte ii "Slow".
The chamber of commerce spent con
siderable tlmo in ascertaining the,' cost
of an electrolier system of street light
ing nnd having obtained tnc figures,
made a partial canvass of property
owners to ascertain if they would boar
half the expense of installing the posts,
tho tenanta to pay the other half:, The
result of this canvas was discouraging
and the matter was temporarily, if not
Wc notice that Sidney is now install
ing the electrolier system of lightingon
its main street, tho property owners
defraying the cost of the iron posts and
installing them. Sidney ia about half
the size of North Platte, but it, appar
ently has twice the enterprise and en
ergy of North Platte in fact compared
with Sidney and two dozen other towns
in Nebraska, North Platto is "slow."
Isn't it time to tako on a little now life
-not only as it relates to strqot light
ing, but in a number of other matters.
A town is always what the residents
make it it can be a bustling, busy
place, or it can be as pokey and slow
going ns a burro.
The Christmas Spirit.
Christmas is a day of merry making
and rejoicing, and to celcbrnte the
birth of tho babe of Buthleham we en-
u avor to show our love to thoso dear
to us by making some gift to them.
The gift should be something appro
priate to the wishes and wants of the
recipient. The joy, of giving is spon
taneous every year like the buds and
blossons and the song of birds. Ve imi
tate the life of this one whose birth
we celebrate when we heal a sorrow,
make one heart happier or lighten the
burden borne by some tired mother.
The more we cultivate the true; Christ
mas spirit of living and giving the
more that spirit will have its influence
for good. Our plea to every society
and to every person interested in
spreading abroad tho spirit of cheer at
this Christmas timo are askod to do
something to help either in money.new
toys, mittens, stockings, shoes,
clothing and candy) for the chrildren.
We have two hundred names to provide
for. Won't you help just a little in
this work? Send to Mrs. Minnie Per
kins, 110 W. 4th St., or phono 550. The
North Platte lodge of Elks will give us
the use of the.assembly room of their
beautiful new home for the Christmas
tree. Time to be decided on.
