Wreck at Brady.
The engine and five mail cars of
mail train No. 9 jumped the track at
Brady late yesterday Hf ternoon and for
several hours blocked tho main lino. Tho
aceident wa3 caused by tho engine
striking a pile of dirt on the Brndy
crossing, which derailed the train. The
wreckage covered the double tracks
and delayed both east and west bound
trains several hours.
A number of workmen went down pn
No. 14 at G o'clock, cleared one track
and transferred tho mail to other
trains which arrived here at 9:80. En
gineer Roddy, his fireman and tho
crew escaped without injury although
to view the wreck this would seem im
possible, judging from tho position of
the cars and engine. A second delega
tion of workmen were sent down this
inorning to pick up the wrecked train.
Irrigation Bonds Cancelled

The district was organized for the
purpose of constructing a ditch and
taking seepage and Hood water from
the South Platte river. Bonds were
issued, some of which were given to
farmers who nerformed work on tho
ditch. Before tho bonds were nil sold
or tho ditch completed, suit was brought
by residents of the district to have tho
bonds cancelled on the grounds that
they wore illegally issued. The district
court held for tho plaintiffs and tho
supreme court now upholds the lower
court. The bonds which have passed
into hands of those who performed
work on the ditch are rendered value
less by the court's decision.

Freckles, at Keith Tomorrow Evening
One of the most important offerings
of the current season at tho Keith
theatre is the first presentation here of
Neil Twomey's delightful dramatization
of Geno Stiatton-Porter's charming
story "Freckles," which is announced
for Saturday evening, June 28th.
The fact that there have been more
readers of this story than any other
book published in a decade n faires
timate is in the millions makes tho
dramatization of the utmost importance
to the dramatic world.
"Freckles" as a drama is stronger
than "Fre k'03" as a story. JThe char
actors live, love and have adventure
one can see and hear, there is nothing
left to the imagination. D. L. Martin,
under whose management the present
tour is conducted, has made the produc
tion of "Freckles" exceedinly elaborate
and has assembled a company of un
usual excellence for the prccntation of
this charming story play.
The music for the play and the songs
rendered by Freckles are by the Vien
nese composer, Anutol Fnedland, nnd
arcua novelty from a musical point of
view. The Woodland Fantasy played
during tho play is a masterpiece.
North Platte Will Have Ball Game.
Homer Mussolman and Perry Carson,
who are soliciting funds for tho pur
pose of bringing to North Platte the
Humboldt team, formerly a member of
the Mink league, report satisfactory
progress and are hopeful that tho nec
essary amount will he raised. Five or
six hundred dollars are needed to start
the season and it is believed that with
that sum as a guarantee pot sufficient
revenue from games can be obtained to
keen up the team for a month or two.
While the principal drawback will be
the lack of a schedule of games, it is
probable that several open dates can be
secured from tho Kearney and Grand
Island teams of the state leaguo, that
a few games can be secured from Wes
tern League teams as they pass through,
nnd that perhaps a few games can be
secured with Omaha city teams. If
games can thus be secured, North
Platto is likely to have some classy ball
during the next month or two.
Eight members of the Humboldt team
arrived in town last ovoning, the other
members stopping over at Kearnoy and
will be here in a day or two. The
Humboldt team won the pennant in
the Mink league two years ago, and
last year stood second. Now ball
grounds are being laid out to
day south of First street and 01st of
tha Park stone houso in tho First ward.
The fence and grand stand used at the
old parki will bo remodeled thereto.
Tno Humboldt team comes here with
out an absolute guarantee, expecting,
however, that the money subscribed
shall bo pifid over to the team at inter
vals as the season progresses. It is up
to the manager to secure sufficient
games to pay the greater part of tho
salaries of the players.
