In a special report to the board of
education made by Supt. Tout, It Is
shown that, in 190R tho number of
nuplls of school ago in the North
Platto district was 1,126. In 1910 tho
number had increased to 1,413 and in
1915 tho number enumerated was 1,-
Perhaps this is about the best in
dex of the growth of tho population
of the city. Figured on a conservative
basis our total increase in population
during tho ten years was 2,406.

lander, Feb. 29, 1916, ago 80. This dear
sister was given ten years moro than
the three scoro and ten and she used
them well for her life was one of de
votion and sacrifice.
Fifteen years before she loft her
native land she cared for her widowed
mothor, and after her mother died she
came to America whore she had rela
tives living. She found upon her ar
rival that tho wife of her brother
Claus bad died and loft a family of
small chldren. Sho stopped into tho
breach and became a mother to the
children. Her worth as a mother to
them is shown in the lovonnd affection
which theso children, now grown,
show for her.
This sister was a ohme-body and felt
It her duty and privilege to care fori
tho homo. Everyone about her loved
bier, and her llfo was a benediction to
ill who wero acquainted with ner. i
After the children wero grown and had
left homo they always felt that auntioj
had grown dearer and sweeter to thorn.
Her hair was whiter, her step a llttloi

It seemed hard to givo nor up, anti
when tho dear ones felt they could
hardy do it. Her words were "His will
bo done." The last words sho spoito
were these: "Thou your sins bo ns
scarlet, they shall be as white as
snow." Heaven gates camo ajar, earth
gates were closed. Heaven is richer,
earth is poorer. Rut her memory
shall lio a halo about all who know
