Loosen up Your Purse Strings.
With so many avenues through which
to disburse the publicity fund, it Is un
reasonable to expect the Chnmbor of
Commerce to furnish the full amount
asked by the military band for Its
sorie3of opon air concerts, this sum
being five hundred dollars. Last year
the Chamber.of Commerce made an ap
propriation of ono dollar per concert
for each member playing and It is will
ing to mako a similar appropriation this
year. There are about 125 subscribers
to tho publicity fund; there are 1100
voters in town; would it bo more than
fair to ask the 975 men who are not
subscribers to tho publicity fund to sub
scribe to the band concert fund an
average of thirty cents each. It is the
general public that enjoys the band
concerts; why should they not bo willing
to help pay for the amusement ana
ploasure they receive? We should have
the concerts, and tho price asked is not
unrcasonablo, but to have them, citi
zens other than tho busincsssmon must
untie their purso strings. If you desire
the concerts drop into McDonald's bank
and hand Emil Voscoipka such amount
as you feel you can afford to give.
Reception to Schools
A reception was held last evonlng
in the parlors of the Presbyterian church
by tho Young Ladies Clubs of the dif
ferent churches for the students of the
Junior Normal. Tho pillars of the
rooms were decorated with tho colors
of each society and the gueBts were re
ceived by a reception committee from
each church. The attendance was about
one hundred. Games were played dur
ing the evening and the guests made
welcome by each club. Badges of each
society were presented to all who at
tended and nicely prepared refreshments
served. The evening was a very enjoy
able one to all and the Junior Normal
students feel thnt they were royally en
tertained. The decorations were taste
fully arranged so as to blend different
colors and the entertainment committoo
spared nothing which would add to the
ploasure of their guests.

Frank Holtslandc, Jr., who until

The Program To-night
A good story is told of the film "Se
cret Sorvico Sam," which we show to
night. Herbert Brenon and his 'Imp forces
thought thojr had picked a bright day
to take the marine pictures. Three
tugs were hired and nil preparations
made, when a dismal flaw sot in and
promised to set their plans awry. But
moving picture making waits for neith
er time nor tido, so the flotilla steamed
down the bay. After passing the Nar
rows, the camera men began to reel off
the film. Tho actors assumod their
belligerent attitudes of Russian spies
and their pursuing secret service men.
Jusl this sido of Sandy Hook the boats
began peppering each othor with blank
cartridges. Suddenly a boat that had
been following thorn camo up. Brenon
was directing the bnttery of cameras
toward tho warring forces when he
discovered that the boat was "butting
"Come on," signalled Brenon to the
captain of ono of the tugs. "What is
tho matter with you fellows?"
The captain answered, indicating
that something was wrong. Brenon
soon overtook the tugs and discovered
that the police had regarded the action
of tho flotilla as highly snsplcious and
with visions of a new order of pirates
or filibusters, had determined to inter
fere. Explanations were mado and
civilities exchanged. Tho copper nnd
the make-believe secret sorvlce men
parted the best of friends.
Secret Service Sam is in two reels

Crossos" a western comedy."Tho fun is
made trying to decide who is boss on n

finds that there is too much alkali in
the city water, and are now sinking a
well for the purpose of obtaining water
to freeze ice. This well will be sunk to
such a depth as necessary, but will not
be less than 150 feet. In using city
water It was found that in tho freezing
process tho alkali concentrated in the
center of the cake, and when tho cen

there was a residue of the alkali.
Having a desire to furnish a pure ice,
this condition was unsatisfactory to the
