I'lour fur the Belgians.
A collection was taken at the Elks'
Homo hist evening for tho purpose of
assisting In tho charitable movement
of sending Hour to tho war stricken
and destitute people of Belgium. Tho
amount contributed was thirty-soven
dollars, and this amount will no doubt
bo largely increased by contributions
from Elks who wero not present lust
This movement to assist tho Bel
gians Is nation wide. Tho flouring
mills furnish tho flour at cost, tho ox
port grade costing 95 cents a sack,
the railroad haul tho donations free to
tho seaboard and vessels transport it
across tho Atlantic without charge. At

contributed. Certainly tho people
of North Platte should respond as
Tho Lexington Mill & Elevator Co.
of Lexington, Nebraska, which Is op
erating tho local mill, is giving ono
hundred sacks of flour. They havo al
so agreed to furnlslK, flour for ship
ment at ninety-live cents a sack. A
sack of this flour will sustain a Bel
gian for three months. One dollar
will pay for a sack and leave Ave cents
to begin paying for another sack. The
civic department of tho Twentieth
Century club has undertaken the Avork
of gathering contributions for this
very worthy cause. Subscription pa
pers have been placed in tho First Na
tional bank, the Platto Valley ( State
bank and tho McDonald State bank to
make it convenient for every one who
desires to subscribe to It. Tho Bel
gians aro starving and must havo
food. No matter where one's sympa
thies may Ho in regard to the war it
is a fact that the Belgians are suffer
ing terrible hnrdships through no fault
of theirs. This -is an opportunity to
give concrete expression to our feel
ings concerning the brotherhood of
man. All contributions of whatever
size will he welcomed but they must bo
made speedily because tho need is ur
