Tho Western Union Telegraph
Company started! .preliminary work
yesterday on tho relay station which
it will establish In North Platte and
that means before completed an ex-1
pondlturo of forty thousand dollars
In equipment and labor.
Tho first work to ho done Is the
laying of a wlro conduit from the
north side of Front street down the
east side of Dewey to tho alley be
tweon Front and Sixth, thence about
forty feet east In the alley and thence
into tho south room of the Walte
math building. To put in this con
duit requires tho tearing up of the
stroot paving across Front and south
on Dowey to tho alley. Permission
to do ths was granted by the city
Western Union giving a bond in tho
sum, of fifteen thousand dollars that
it will replace tho part of the street
work tearing up the paving brick
torn up in as good condition as be
fore they began their operations.
Worlnnon began excavating for the
num-holo on the north side of Front
street yesterday afternoon, and it is
expected that within a day or two a
large forco of men will bo put to
w"ork terlng up the pvvjng brick,
drilling through the cemont base and
making tho excavation for the con
duit, tho desire being to complete the
work as rapidly as posslblo and thus
avoiding as much as possible the in
conveniencing of the traffic.
Much of tho equipment for the Ve
lpy "Station has been received and
stored and as soon as the under
ground wires are laid It will bo plac
ed in position.

accordance with the order of tho state
board of health issued last Saturday,
i Whether this will stop tho spread
of the disease is said to bo at least a
I debatable question. In some towns
' whero quarantine had been enforced
, it is said the disease was practically
stamped out whilo In other towns the
quarantine is reported to have had no
effect. It may bo possible that the

a rigid enforcement in ono case and
a lax enforcement in the other. In

It was a real Christmas dinner tur

It was n strenuous day for them, no

the North Platte Floral Co., and In tho
