Hnllovrcll Concert Pleases.
Tho concert given by tho Hnllowcll
Comapny, under tho auspces of tho
B. P. 0. Elks, at tho Keith Tuesday
evening attracted a largo audience,
and that the atendnnts wero pleased
was evidenced' by fthbJ enthusiastic
manner in which every number was
received. The orchestral selections
wero applauded, and each of tho solo
numbers encored. As a muscal organ
ization the Hallowcll Company is one
of tho best that appears in North
Platte, and their return next year
will bo awaited with pleasure.
Followng the concert the company
played for a dance at tho Elks' home.

when ho nsked for tho nnmo of tho
maker of the song ho heard for tho

Cans of the Mouth.
Tho uso of a tooth wash does not
approach the conditions of a laboratory
test, though thero can bo Httlo doubt
that a good deal of germicidal work in
tho mouth is dono by tho vigorous ap
plication of the toothbrush, nnd It may
bo pointed out that tho tongue mny
well bo included In tho process. To bo
effective, however, tho action of all an
tiseptics takes time, according to the
vitality of tho organisms they encount
er, nnd usually tho tooth brushing
process does not occupy mnny seconds.
This question of tlmo exposure Is im
portant, but it is very generally over
looked and consequently tho nntiscptlc
treatment of tho teeth falls short of
thnt effectiveness which is shown to
bo tho case in laboratory experiments.
Tho tooth washing process should be
more prolonged and tho antiseptic wash
allowed to remain In contact with the
teeth and gums for some minutes In
stead of seconds before finally wnshlng
tho mouth clear of antiseptic with
plain water. London Lancet

Mnny persons are under the impres
sion that America hns fow, if any, na
tivo plants worthy of cultivation in tho
homo garden. They have been accus
tomed to look upon thorn as weeds nnd
wild things, and so unfamiliar nro they
with native flowers that they fall to
recognize them when they meet them
outside their native haunts. A writer
tolls how ho transplanted a stalk of
goldenrod from a fence comer In the
pasture to a place In his garden. It
flourished luxuriantly nnd sent up
mnny stalks as high as a man's head,
each crowned with a great plume of
brilliant dowers. A neighbor was at
tracted by tho beauty of tho plant nnd
declared It must have cost Its owner
sorao dollars. When told, however,
thnt numbers of the snmo plnnt were
flourishing behind his barn ho exclaim
ed: "What! You mean to tell mo It's
yallerweed!" And ho went away with
the air of ono who had been imposed

Thievery In Chile.
Tho Chilean masses have a bad

ship passengers arc warned to lock
their cabin doors, and loaded lighters
have to bo guarded at night Chilean

they find opportunity to lower them

will even cut n hole In tho bow of n
vessel nnd make off with boatloads of
freight. Tho Germnns or southern
Chile hnvo tho worst opinion of Chilean
honesty, nnd In Santiago I wns bidden
notice the high walls nnd grated win
dows of the houses of the better class.

Byron's Famous Swim.
Byron was cruising up the Darda
nelles In u British warship, the Sal-
sette. -when ho accomplished his fa
nioua swim from Abydos to Sostos,
tho distance (a little over four miles)
being covered in seventy minutes.
"You will smile at tills exploit," tho
poet wrote to R. C. Dallas in a let
ter describing tho swim, "but as It
made an ancient Imniortnl I seo no ren
son why a modern may not bo permit
ted to boast of It, particularly as I had
no mistress to comfort mo at landing.'
According to llobhouse, his traveling
companion, Byron - "hud previously

ed passage, for 1 recollect that when
we were In Portugal ho swam from
Old Lisbon to Bcleni castle and. hav
