NORTH PLATTE WILL HELP
-MAKE FA I It A SUCCESS
North Platto will materially nsslst
In making the Southwestern Nebraskn
Fair to be hold at Maywood next week
a success. A large part of tho Lincoln
county exhibit at the local fair and
also at the state fair will bo taken to
Maywood and placed on exhibition;
a North Platte orchestra will furnish
music for a dnnco to bo held each
evnlng during tho fair; a tug of war
between teams from North Platto and
McCoolc is on the program of sports,
and the foot ball team of tho North
Platte high school will nlav the Curtis
team on tht Maywood grounds. It ie
probable that several hundred North
Platte people will drive over to May
wood during tho fair, thus swelling
me crown and doing their share to
make the fair a financial success.
The Maywood people will find that
North Platte believes in boosting
Western Nebraska; that Us people do
not confine all their energy to their
Chirk Car Found.
The Ford enr belonging to Henry
Clark which was stolen from in front
of the Lutheran church on the evening
of September 2Gth, was found Sunday
in the canyons Tforthwest of Maywood.
The car is in pretty bad shape, tho
engine burned through running dry,
the fenders bent and several wires
and rods broken and disconnected.
A rain coat, pair of waders and other
articles of apparel which Mr. Clark
kept In the car, were taken.
Suspicion attaches to Earl Inman, of
this city, as the fellow who took the
car. He was missed from town
about tho time tho car was taken,
ho was seen in Maywood the early
part of last week, and Saturday night
he left Maywood on a train for tho
east part of tho state accompanied by
a young girl. The offioers will make
an effort to locate Inman.
Henry Clrak has taken a forty-day
leavo of absence and will spend the
time in Omaha taking a course in em
balmlng. During his absence Ole Gra
ham is carrying the mall on the val

overy traveler carried his II fo in his

stranger u potential enemy, so tho un
armed man elthert retreated from tho
path or was boa tun from It by an ad
vancing stranger, if tho Intter wero
armed. 'When two armed men met,
with shield on left arm nnd sword in

each other on the right, so aa,.t bring
