Hail Does Much ,'
Damage to Crop.
A destructive hnilstorm swept over
the vnllcy between Hershey nnd Pallns
Tuesdiiy night nnd damaged crops to
the extent of thousands of dollars. The
greatest dnmugo is appnrent just cast
of Hershey where big corn fields that
prior to the storm had stalks wnlst
high nnd beginning to tnsslu out, arc
now nothing moro than fields of stubs
ranging from six to eighteen inches
high. As the storm traveled east from
Horshoy it grow less in violence nnd by
tjfe time it ronched the Baker school
ht-uso it had spent the greater part of
its, fury. Npt only was; there n great
loss of corn, but the mnny fields of
beets suffered severely; in some fields
the giound is almost bare, while in
others about half the leaves wero
pounded ofT. Alfalfa also shows evi
dence of the soverety of the storm; in
some fields the second crop, just about
ready for cutting, was mowed olF or
pounded fiat on tho ground. Along the
roads it was noticed that tho dense
growth of sweet clover was broken oil
as completely as though mowed.
Potato vines were divested of all leaves
and only stubs of the stalks or yine
In some of the houses many window
lights were broken, nnd nfter tho storm
hail stones as Infge ns the nvcrngo egg
were picked up.
Crops in tho valley worn never in
better condition, nnd this is particularly
true of corn, therefore tho loss will be
Very heavy. Very little of the corn in

600 Automobiles in
Lincoln County, j
few days ngo a news "tern in nn
Omaha papor stated that in one of the
eastern counties of the state there was
one automobile owned for each twenty
eight inhabitants of the county. Several
North Platte men thought the showing
somewhat remarkable nnd so expressed
themselves, not knowing that prncti-"
cnlly the snmo proportion held good in J
Lincoln county. Asked yesterday ns to
tho number of automobiles on which
tho two dollar nnnunl license tax was
being pnid, County Treasurer Durbin
unid about itf hundred, peihaps n few
more or n few less; and there are prob
ably n few lato purchases on which the
license tax has not yet been paid. We
are supposed to have a population of
17.000 in the county, so if you divide
the number of people by the number of
cars you have one for each 28J people.
Figuring the average cost of ench enr
at $000, nnd that average is low, you
find thnt the people of Lincoln county
hnv over a half million dollars in
vested in automobiles; the cost of oper
ation is not less than placed extremely
low $75,000 a year and the deprecia
tion not less than $125,000.
The county treasurer is receiving
on nn average of $100 per month for
automobile license fees. This money
is apportioned to the three commis
sioner's road district funds and U8Qd in
rad building the law says for permfl--npnt
roads, This is, at least, sufficient
to build n mie or two of good roads
