NOTjIN ORDER '.'
A recent Issue of a North Platto
paper contained a very) important
news item, It being n voto of thanks
Btgncd by n number of farmers living
south of NorUi Platto and thanks to
tho North t Platto Chamber of Com
morco for their "efforts lit aliulcliig It
posslblo to cross the rlvor with groc
eries and supplies during tho recent
high water.
Reading tho artlclo closely, It was
qulto apparent that tho North Platto
Chamber of Commerce had accepted
tho voto of thanks not In rcallzalou
of their own interests but that they
ha((I mado a big sacriflco for tho ser
vice performed.
(Illustration of a simitar service
rendered, and evidenco of co-opera-tlon,
tho following is submitted in
contrast. Tho recent high wator

of farmers and business men of Mnx

few hours had constructed a pontoon
brldgo the entire length of the area
covered by wator and conveyances
woro passing high and dry.
A voto of thanks was not In order.
Each and everyono had performed
his duly as a public service and to
his own interest. Omitting comment,
bciUi public and of the press, tho
united bodies had not only ac
pllshed their task but had also devel
oped a feeling of closer relationship.

will make a study of tho system of
telephonic market reports that are
highly developed in certain European
countries. Ho will make tho trip en

delay tho experimental work In Nebr
aska which will bo started as soon as

interesting to noto that tho first e
porlmental work in the master of 1
rural freo Wollvery was ilono In Nebr-I
nska; tho first R. F. D. lino running
out of Pawneo City. From this experi
ment grew tho great system of rural

that a sending station will bo estab

can bo utilized for sending. It may be
that later ono or two other sending
stations will be established in tho
contral ail westorn portions of tho
