Tournament Opens Today.
When Col. John C Den arose at sev
en this morning and found North Platto
wrapped in tho grasp of a May bliz
zard, ho said something stronger than
"well I declare." Today Is the opening
of the state gun club tournament In
North Pntte, and as tho Colonel was
one of the prime movers In bringing
the shoot here and naturally' desires
the visitors to have "one of tho times
of their lives," ho personally felt per
turbed at weather conditions. Howev
er, the "gunmen" aro here over one
hundred strong and as they are men
who hunt chicken In torrid weather
and geeso when tho temperature Is far
below zero, they are not likely to bo
much disturbed by a May snow storm
and besides It may clear up before
real activities begin on the club
giounds. Events will be pulled off
forenoons and afternoons,. and a small
carload sof shells will be exploded
and' cart loads of targets broken. Tho
Trbuue extends a hearty welcome to
tho visiting sportsmen and hopes that
their stay in town will bo pleasant,
notwithstanding the weather is so in
auspicious this forenoon. North Platte

Entertain for Mrs. Austin.
A very pretty function was given
last evening when Mrs. Will Baldock
and Miss Maymo MeMichael at tho
homo of the former entertained four
teen young ladles at a Turkish towel
shower complimentary to Mrs. Cash
Austin, who became a brldo last week.
Diversified features were used In en
tertaining tho guests and tho evening
passed very pleasantly. Tho rooms
wore prettily decorated In pink and
white, and very unique were tho deco
rations on tho table which tho guests
surrounded for the luncheon served.
The place cards were In the form of
tiny brides In full wedding gowns with
flowing veils. From tho chandelier to
tho table streamers of pink and white
extended, connecting a- center piece
with gates leading out to "lovers'
lanes" composed of green foliage, that
to the bride's seat being of rose leaves.
The "shower" of Turkish towels was
a copious one.
