Mr. Julius Pizer
The owner o! The Leader Department Store retires from the business. His physician commands him to give up business and take a rest. For twenty
years, as you all know, he has been one of the hardest workers in Western Nebraska, but rest is imperative. He cannot continue calling on his nervous force
any longer, so he retires from the management of the Leader Department Store, leaving it in younger and stronger hands. Before doing this and re-organizing
the store the bulk of the present stock must be sold and for this reason (

Mr. nr.d Mrs. E. W. Mann went to
Maxwell yesterday by auto to visit
for Good Highways.
An expenditure of $3,000,000,000 for
good roads, $1,000,000,000 being for
construction and $2,000,000,000 for
maintenance, the investment extending
over a period of fifty years, was pro
posed Wednesday in n plan submitted
to tho joint congressional commission
on federal aid in tho construction of
roads by former Senator Bourne of
Oregon. Sonutor Bourne's proposal
provides for federal nnd state co-operation.
Ho also suggests tho establish
ment of a national school of highway
and bridge engineering from which
trained specialists in road building
would be supplied to tho various states.
Tho $1,000,00,000 construction fund,
according to Senator Bourne's plans,
would be apportioned among the states
upon tho basis of area, population, as
sessed valuation and road mileage. The
Btates would be required tp deposit in
United States treasury fifty-year 4 per
cent bonds for the amount duo them.
The government would then loan the
states the par value thereof for road
construction, raising its fund by tho
sale of fifty-year nontaxable 3 per cent
By crediting each state each year
the ljper cent excess paid on bonds and
paying 8 per cent on the amount com
pounded annually, a sinking fuad
would bo established, it is estimated,
from which the government would pay
off tho bonds at the end of fifty years
and the state would be relieved of the
payment of principal on its bonds.
