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 bors' sons. By next Tuesday the exact amount contributed In tho county as well as in the district will bo dounitoly known and .the figures will bo published. : :u: : Owing to the fact that I will move my entire stock from the Wilcox Dent Storo December 1st, to my new de partment at Block's, wo are reducing ail trimmed hats to remarkably low figures.
