The Good Samaritan Hospital,
which opened last fall, close its cn
rcor Tuesday and the entlro equip
ment wns sold to a corporation known
as the North Platte Gonoral Hospital
which Is financed and controlled by
Drs. Geo. 13. Dent, J. S. Sims, J. 13.
Rcdlleld and Voorhees Lucas. Tues
day afternoon the equipment of the
eloped hospljal was moved to the
building on north Locust street form
erly occupied by the Redfleld hospital,
upon which a lease had been secured
when it wns known that the- Good
Samaritan was to close its doors, The
north Locust street building Is well
adapted ',for hospital purposes, the
socond iloor having been arranged
when constructed with such a tenant
in view, and while it may at times bo
somowhat Inadequate in size, it will,
generally speaking, accommodate all
the patients which come from North
Platto and tho country tributary. It
is so arranged that it can bo conducted
much more economically than the Good
Samaritan, one advantago being that
all the rooms aro on one floor, and
therefore a losscr numbor of nurses
will bo required to perform the need
While the four physicians above
named are tho incorporators, tho hos
pital will bo open to cases of other
physicians; it is general in its char
acter. That this institution should open
following the closing of tho Good Sa
maritan is an excellent move for
North Platte, for it will bring hero pa
tients for treatment that would other
wise, by lack of accommodation, bo
taken to Omaha.

E. T. TRAMP & SON.
That section of tho county southeast
of North Platto known as tho Jack
Morrow Flats was swept by a hall
storm about live o'clock Tuesday even
ing that laid wasto the crops which
were in tho best possible condition. In
fact the lints this year seemed to bo
tho garden spot of the county, for no
where else was wheat, rye, oats and
barley so perfect nor so promising.
Tho territory covered by iho hnll
was twelve to fourteon miles in length
east and west, and live or six miles in
width, nnd in this area the destruc
tion ot crops was practically com
plete. It is estimated that 1S00 acres
of small grain was totally destroyed
nnd another 500 acres on which the
loss runs from twenty-five to fifty
per cent. In nddUion to this small
grain hundreds of acres of corn was
beaten off to tho ground. Some In
sist that this corn will grow, but even
if so tho lateness of the season pre
cludes any crop of corn.
Very little wind accompanied the
hall, but sonic of the stones measured
six and seven Inches in circumfer
ence, and while tho storm did not
last over thirty minutes tho ground
was covered with Ice.
Among those who suffered tho loss
of all or part of their crops were the
Collns Bros, who placed their loss at
$3,000, WmN Kelso, Guy Edls, Gus
Brantlng, Jess Highbcrger, Kronqulst,
Bockus, Daggert, tho two Sodormans,
Parker, J. S. and Ellas Loyd, John
son, Emplo, Galkey, Pratt, Klrby and
Edmlsten. On tho latter farm there
were 400 acres in small grain, part of
which was not badly injured.
A number of young pigs are re
ported to havo been killed by the hall,
as were aso chickens which failed to
get under cover.
Fields of fall wheat which were des
troyed promised yields as high as for
ty bushels per acre. This wheat
would havo been ready for the binder
tho latter part of next week.
Only a few of those who suffered
losses carried insurance on their
Swedish Lutheran Service

Rev. H. G. Knowles, of the Christian
church, was granted a leave of ab
sence and presented with expense
money for a trip to the California ex
positions by his congregation. How
ever, at last Sunday evening's ser
vico he thanked the members of the
church for their kindness but de
clined to accept either the vacation or
the money. We don't exactly know
Just why he declined, but we surmise
that when Parson Knowles looked over
his congregation, he saw some fellows
who had contributed to the expense
account that need a vacation worse
than he does, and that his action was
largely influenced thereby and this
is the spirit that draws men closer
to each other. Rev. Knowles and fam
iy will, however, leave next Monday
morning for an auto trip to Falrburv,
but will return in time for service the
M. F. Dial, who lives on the Schatz
farm southeast of town, returned yes

fed cattle sell for $10 per hundred,
and yet the seller said ho made no
money on them.
