The North Platte mm went Into tho

hotr teeth and tho North Platto boys
apparently lost their ginger, for In
uio seconu nan Lincoln run up a score
Of tWOnty-BGVOri whtln Nnrrh Plnftn
failed to score. The North Platto stars
m uio gamo, as icported by tho Lin
coln Journal i3ro Bakor, Ellas and
Tho North Plattto toam Is light In
weight compared with Lincoln, nnd
this contributed to their defeat. Lin
coln has In Its team, howover, one
particular Btar player, largely through
whoso efforts tho gamo was won.
Tlie Bird has Flown.
Contractor Stack's bird of 111 omen
It Is believed has now vanished, hav
ing glvon Its last squawk Friday. The
durn blrd, however, was euro a dandy
nnd Its last performance was when
itho flues In the concroto mixer sprung
a leak and an attempt was made
to bring Lloyd Powers tractor across
tho Hver In order to furnish steam.
Tho. tractor stuck ,ln tho sand from
whlc3v .it jwas not rescued until yester
days morning. However, Contractor
Stackwetfared Mio Cy Itusscll tractor.
Sunday and tliorby was enabled to fur
nish steam for tho mlxor yesterday
and thus complete tho concrete work.

has been, repaired and now miltlh two
brick setters and a full crew of brick
totters Mr. Stack expects to fully
complete tho work by the end of next
week unless wo have three or four
feet of snow. .
Moso Can Now Smile.
Mose McFarland and Walter Hoag
land are not the only owners of canine
"death angels," altho they may lay
claim to thatt distinction. There are
some other dogs belonging to "well
known citizens who may not be ablo
to clean up seventy or eighty rabbits
in ono night but they can make short
work of the occupants of tho poultry
yard, Yesterday morning three dogs
succeeded in killing thirty chickens
belonging to Mrs. J.H. Fonda In rec
ord time and the canines evidently en
Joyed the spOrt more than will their
owners" when they pay for the thirty
dead' chickens 'Which they have signi
fied their intention of doing. Mose of
course don't like to hear of any one
having had luck, but ho will bo ex
cused If he smiles when ho learns
this chicken story.
