OFFICERS ARREST MEXICAN
FOR HOOZE PEDDLING.
Jose Padilla, n Mexican, was arrest
ed at tho Commercial House last ovon-
Ing by Sheriff Salisbury on tho chargo
of having In his possession and offer
ing for salt tho stuff that bo many
mfen around North Platte are crazy to
purchase at fivo dollars n pint. It was
known that this olive drab Individual
had borrowed monoy, that ho had gone
to Cheyenne, and when ho returned
Sheriff Salisbury felt confident that
tho Mcx was a booze peddler. Armed
with n search warrant tho roms oc
cupied by two Mexicans at tho Com
mercial Houso was searched and n
total of twcnty-flvo bottles labeled
"Yellowstone" was unearthed. Part
of it was found In a grip, tho remaind
er was hurried In tho bod clothing.
In ono of tho rooms was found a
jacket, on the Inside of which had
bo?n i-owd a number of pockets Into
which a pint botflo would snugly fit.
It was In this manner that tho Mox
ovldontly Intondod to carry and
market the booze.
Padilla is in jail and wll have a
hoarlng today or tomorrow.-
It Is probable that the nlortness of
the officers In picking up tho booze
venders will tend to lessen the amount
Inlported into town, and it Is certain
that tho price will advance from $5.00
to $7.50 per pint bottle.

1 Aftor considerable discussion, It was
thought advisable by a numbor of
thoso present that a levy of three per
cent of the tax" valuation of the county
bo Invested In government bonds, and
whoro a man's valuation runs under
$1800.00 on real estate nnd porsonal,
but yot being a poll-tax payor, that ho
bo obliged to buy at least a $50.00
bond, or more. This systom In con
nection with tho card systom, which is
reasonably complote, will msUea
very fair aul Just way of getting at
ovory porson in tho county that should
buy a bond. Tho above 'plan was moro
ly discussed and quoted on a basis
prosuming that Lincoln county's quota
would bo perhaps $500,000.00 or bet
tor. Inasmuch as tho quota has. not
yot nrrlved, thoro was no definite plan
settled on, but tho above plan no

committee, under tho direction of Mrs.
Cottcroll, district chairman, and Mrs,
Frank Buchanan, county chairman foi
Lincoln county will work among the
women of Lincoln county, making a
special offort to placo bonds especial

was stated that as soon as tho quota
for Lincoln county was received, thoro
would be another meeting called, at

LAST CALL FOR
If you will have real use for an automobile
during these war times, I would advise
that you make arrangements tor your new
car in the next thirty days. Several of the
larger factories have already stopped pro
ducing and the production of all the . fac
tories is diminishing fast.
If you want one of the popular makes
of cars, from which you will get dependable
and economical service, and an assurance
of after service and repair parts, your im
mediate order would probably be the only
safe thing now.
We admit that we are short on both
Dd3ge Brothers and Chandler motor cars,
but are assured that we will be able to care
for a few more buyers before the end
comes. We sincerely recommend these cars
to you and will stand behind them after
