THE CONTEST FOR QUEEN
T. L. Carroll and son L. C. Carroll,
dwfners of tho Gothenburg Electric
Flour Mills, together with their head
miller, have visited North Platto sever
al times during tho past weok with
tho object of establishing a Hour mill
in this city; cither by purchasing the
present mill, which has not been in
operation for a year or more, or else
erecting a now mill.
Tho head miller of tho Gothenburg
firm spout Sunday In town making a
thorough examination of tho macula
cry of tho present mill, noting that
part which they could, uso and that
which they would need tear out, and
after computing tho value of the plant
to them, an offer will bo made to Mr.
Roynolds, tho present owner. If this
offer Is declined), the firm will at once
frrocoodi to make arrangements for
erecting a mill with a dally capacity
of two hundred barrels.
It is understood that a convenient
slto on tho Union Pacific right-of-way
has been secured in case tho firm de
cides to build..
The Carrolls have long been resi
dents of Gothenburg, and have been
engaged in the banking and milling
business for many years. Their fi
nances aro very strong and they would
never bo hampered by lack of capital
to operato a mill at full capacity ev
ery day in tho. year anr their experi
ence in tho milling business would
means success for the North Platto
Conscription Not Ear Off.
Up to last evening Recruiting Of
ficer Rowland reported ten enlist
ments in Company E. This Is coming
along -rather sldwily, and tho dllatorl
ness only hastens tho day of con-
scription which It is believed is only a
week or so away. Lincoln county s
nuota under the call will bo two com
panies of 150 men each, which Is full
war strength. Waiving middle aged
men and young men who have others
dependent upon them, the drafting of
300 will cut quite a swath in the total
number-of young men In tho county

A Hoodoo Month
It begins to appear that tho month

began in April, 1715. Tho embargo
which brought about the war of 1812
was enacted in April, 1812. Tho hos

ilro4 upon and captured in tho month
of April, 1861, and tho iwiir of tho re

Low price does not always represent
economy. Cheapest means poorest- sure as you're
alive, and it's too bad that price is the single at
traction for man people.
If the man of meager means could or
would wait until he could buy real quality shoes,
he would never need to qo back to the extrava
gant, cheap kind.
If you're short on cash today, maybe
it's because you persistently and continually buy
things that "tjo tp pieces" too soon.
Did you ever think of that?
It's common sense, nevertheless.
There's a good reason for the popularity
