CALL COUNTY CONVENTION.
Republicans to Meet In Battle Greet
on March 24.
Chairman Koonlgsteln and Secretary
tary McFarland have called the re
publican county convention to moot
In Battle Crook on Thursday after
noon , March 24 , for the purpose of se
lecting delegates to attend the state ,
congressional and senatorial conven
tions. The primaries are recommend
ed to bo hold not later than Tuesday ,
Thursday evening after having
shopped at the millinery stores , there
passed gaily along the streets , wear-
ng bright smiles , ladles with balloon
ko packages which , on a guess , con-
iilnod fantastic creations , yet known
a hats , that provoke ecstatic delight
moug the ladles , young men to ex-
ravagant expressions of admiration ,
ml old men ( married ) to say things
t the bills dated April 1. Thursday
norning , along the wind swept , snow
rifted streets , sadly , they passed
losely wrapped In winter garb and
ndor the old winter hat , wearing
ark frowns. The weather had
hanged from summer to winter.
Several more counties declared for
ho nomination of a senator by the re-
ubllcan state convention during the
ast week. It appears that the move-
nont for the fuller participation by
ho people In the making of senators
s so popular that the politicians who
ry to stop it are getting run over
ight and left. The opposition of the
ihiof political engineers of the Bur
Ington railroad to the nomination
doa is really giving It an added im
> etus among the rank and illo of the
mrty. The average republican re-
nombers the session of the leglsla-
uro of 1901 that ended in the ap
pointment of Dietrich and Mlllard as
senators by these railroad politicians
nnd swears that It is time to stop that
sort of manipulation. North Platte
The ruling of the attorney general
that the credits to be assessed under
the now revenue law. are the net
credits , will meet with the approva
of the people of the stato. It puts
the law in this respect on the same
footing as the old law. A man who
owns notes , mortgages , etc. , will bo
allowed to deduct from the amoun
thereof any bona fide debts which ho
may be owing. Commissioner Dufllo
of the surpome court commission
had already written an opinion to this
effect , which had boon printed by
order of the court , but there was still
a doubt in the minds of the county
assessors. They will now follow the
opinion of the attorney general. Beatrice * -

One Minute Cough Cure. Four bottles
tles of this wonderful remedy cured
no entirely of the cough , strengthen
