There is a very pretty pantomime
story portrayed during the perfor
mances of the Rice and Dore water
circus, which is here next week start
ing next Monday night on the U. P.
right of way grounds, for the benefit of
the North Platte Military Band.
It tells the story of tho mermaids
who have been enjoying their daily
stinbnths on the rocks, when Father
Neptune becoming alarmed for their
safety as they have been on shore n
little longer than usual, comes up out
of his watery home and calls his darling
nymphs, who reluctantly follow their
father as he dissapeors under the dash
ing waves, to tho bottom of the sea.
There they tell him of the wonderous
beauties that they have beheld on land
and try and prevail him to transform
them Into the sort of images that thoy
have seen walking on shore nnd to givo
up his watery castle of coral and shell
and to live on the Innd of sunshine and
flowers, nnd nftermuch persuasion the
old man finally gives up the sea which
he has been the king of for hundreds
of years and returns to mother earth
for a new world to conquer.
This beautiful marine spectacle is
enacted nt every performance under
the captnin of "Ncptune'B Daughters"
and is a replica of the same attraction
that started and astounded thousands
upon thousands at the New York Hip
podrome for years.
Aside from the Water Circus there
are sixteen other high class attractions
to be found with the Rice and Dore
Water Carnival organization, perhaps
the Motordrome or the Death Whirl
would be considered by many as the
second best attraction, as it is one that
is full of sensationalism, three kinetic
demons present an net that pinches the
heart and chills the blood, as they race
around a circular saucer track that is
pitched at an angle of 75 degrees, and
maintain a speed of sometimes ninety
miles an hour.
It hns not been fully decided as yet
whether the shows will be on the U.
P. right of way for four days or not nt
nil ns there nre quite a few merchants
who are determined to have the shows
on the side streets facing Dewey all
week instead of just the Fourth and
Snturday, The carnival manngors are
neutral in the matter and state that
they are here to please the merchants
ancf meet with their desires and not to
dictate where they shall go.
Many Cattle Coming North.
Cattle from the dry sections of Texas
continue to move toward the western '
Nebraska and South Dakota ranges in j
large numbers, with indications that'
still more are coming and wjthin the

tho drought is the most severe of many ,
The Rock Island brought 1,500 head
of cattle Into Nebraska from Texas,
and the Burlington about the same
number. Tho nnimnls coming now are ,
all spring poor, but it is said they will,
take on flesh rapidly as soon as they i
get onto the Nebraska grass.
The Rock Island officers estimate that
during tho next month fully 50,000
cnttle will bo shipped north from I
Mexico nnd that most of them will !
come to Nebraska, Wyoming and South
