TAX ON AUTO3I0HILKS WILL
OltEATK MG ROAD FUXI).
TWO .MISTAKEN MEN
AIM: GRANTED DIVORCES.
Under tho provisions of tho bill In
troduced, In tlio legisjaturo taxing
automobiles, and which Is pretty cer
tain to pass, tho road fund in Lincoln
county will bo benefitted to tho oxtont
of thirty or forly thousand dollars.
Tho bill provides that all cars weigh
ing 2,000 pounds or less shall bo tax
ed ton dollars, with a sliding scalo of
prices abovo that weight. County
Treasurer Souder bolieves that with
Uie number of cars in tho county the
tax paid by Lincoln county owners
will reach $40,000.' Practically nil
this sum will go into tho road fund.
Tho law, if passed, will beconio effec
tive with tho year 1920.
Drowned Ho Had Money.
Stcvo Browcr is confined in the
county Jail, much to his disgust as
well as his discredit. Stove, whoso
homo is wherovor ho takes off his
hat, is evidently a dreamer at least
he issued a lot of checks against a
bank account which did not exist, and
Bovoral North Plattors "are out" in
sums ranging from $5 to $20. Soveral
Tryon 'business men also cashed somo
of Stove's checks.
Every now and then a lot of bad
checks turn up in frorth Platte, ovi
denco that tho business men nre not
ns scrutinizing ns they should bo in
these days when the need of money ia
s great, and so many fellows go on tho
theory: Got money honestly if you
can but get money.

ger Garman was disappointed by not
tho reason for the overwhelming suc

two first, every woman and every
man knows long before they go to see
tho picture little Llnnle's tremendous
temptations, dangers, hunger for n
pood timo and pretty clothes. They
know Instinctively that only tragedy
can result. Anil second every woman

Judgo Grimes grantcd'.two divorces
yostorday. One couplo that hud boon
mntod wrong woro Henry Davis and
Myrtlo Davis. Henry found Myrtlo in
Donvor and after nn hcfjunlntnnco of
six or eight months, thought alio was
all right, but later found she was not
altogether true to him J 8ho hud beon
accustomed to tho bright lights of her
native city and found tho role of a
homo maker too prosaic. Tho Judge
gavo Henry a divorce.
The other case was that of W. W.
Knotts against Addle KnottB. This
was a marrlngo of tho mail order
kind. Addle lived in Chicago nud de
sired to becomo tho loving wife of
somo loving husband who had suf
ficient money to keep her clad in silk
stocking nnd outer and nether gnr
monts in keeping therowtth. 6ho ad
vertised and Knott answerod, photos
wero exchanged, tho outgoing and In
coming mail was thoro after burdened
for a short timo nnd then Addio land
ed. There seemed to bo disappoint
ment somewhere, for Addio only tar
ried n few months nnd then speed
back to tho windy city. In granting
Knotts tho divorce Judgo Grimes in-
sorted In tho decree a sentonco some
thing llfo this: "Tho said Knotts can
not again be married until further
orders of tho court." And so you see
tho court has say as to when, whore
nnd how often somo men or vvomen
may bo married.

h bent on creating. That scorns

24,000 peoplo In Lincoln county to pay,
but- coming right down to tho real
facts the actual residents of Lincoln
county did not pay all not nearly
