Soliciting for the Y. M. C. A. war
work l'und, which begun the early part
of the week in North Plutte and Lin
coln county Is still in progress. Iloro
in town the solicitors in tne residence
districts are doing their work in the
evoning, nnd this naturally protracts
the work. In the business district the
greater part of the work was done
Wednesday and will be "cleaned up"
today The subscriptions as a rule
are satisfactory, and it now looks as
though North Platto will come through
with the amount allotted. The result,
however, will npt bo known until to
Tnorrow evening, for sonic of the com
mittees will not have the work com
pleted before that time. '
So far as heard from the outside
towns and precincts are doing well.
This is especially true in tho sections
from which come the enlisted or
drafted men now in service. In such
localities the rosldents naturally take
greater interest; they want to do their
"bit" toward making camp life more
enjoyable for their soub or their neigh
By next Tuesday the exact amount
contributed In tho county as well as

The campaign for funds for the Y.
M. C. A. war work will cIosq tomor
row evoning, and those who "have not
subscribed are urged to do so today
or tomorrow. Tho patriotism of Lin
coln county will bo judged to soirio
extent by tho contributions its citi
zens make to this fund. Keith county,
with a population of about ono-foiirth
that of Lincoln county subscribed ono
thousand dollars tho first day of the
campaign, and the work is being "pros
ecuted with enthusiasm with indica
tions that its quota of $1,S00 will be
over-subscribed. Up to last evening
Lincoln county had not nearly reach
ed its quota of $4,000.
The efficiency of the Y. M. C. A.
war work, and the real good it brings
to the soldier boys cannot be ques
tioned. We cannot give our money
to a better cause.
