The Cost of Our Four.
The poor and unfortunato we always
hnvo with us, and none should ilony
thorn succor when such Is needed, but
thero la so much talk hoard about
high taxes tliat It Is well to consid
er at times why taxes arc high and
what contributes to tho oxponBos of
the county. County Clerk Yost has
tooted up tho total of all claims al
lowed for tho Lincoln County poor and
unfortunato for tho twolvc months
ending January 1st, 10J5, and finds
it to bo $8,173.19. This is one-fifth-of
tlio monoy collected for tho general j
fund tho fund from which all tho gen-1
oral expenses of tho county are paid.
This does not, of courso, Include tho,
money distributed by and through tho
Associated Charltlos of North Platte, I
nor tho wagon loads of clothing dla-,
trlbutd through the same agoncy.
Nolthor docs It Include tho donations
made direct by Individuals to tho un
fortunate. It will thus bo seen that
tho support of the poor is no small
Item to tax-payers of tho county as a
body and also to them individually.
However, no one should complain of
this expense; It is our duty as men
and women to help thoso not so for
tunnto as ourselves, In fact it should
bo a pleasure to do so.

Splendid Interest In Meftlugs1
Tho (lownpourlmi of ahowor after
showor did nob keep a splendid au
dience away from tho big tabernacle
Wednosday when Dr. Lowry preached
u mastorful and loglcul sermon on
"Assurance, or How Wo May Know
Wo nro Saved."
Tho song service was led by i Prof.
Moody, and old songs were used which
were llftd up by the people In the au-
dlonco as well as those In tho cliorus
The song book which Is being used
is certainly ono or the boat on tho mar-
kot. Many of tho ffood old songs and
page after page of tho now ones are to '
be found In tho book. Mr. Moody Is
one of these whole-souled, Jovial Chris-!
tian men, and wltli the splendid ubll-j
lty which ho hus in his line, ho Is help-1
lug everyone who sings in his big
chorus. Every ono In North Platto
who sings at all should avail them
selves of tho opportunity of training
aflordcd by these meetings.
After a rousing song service, Dr.
Lowry made tho announcements for
tho rest of tho week, then asked the
ushers to kindly take up tho pennies.
The sermon of tho evening was of a
doctrinal nature, and ono that would
convlnco all that heard it that It Is
right for us to know if wo aro saved.
The text of the evening was found In
1st John 5:13 "These things have I
wrlttten unto you that ye may know
that yo have eternal life, even unto
you that believe on tho name of the
Son of God."
By way of Introduction, Dr. Lowry
showed how wrong and foolish It Is
to believe that 'feellnw' Is the test or
one's salvation. He . mentioned
the fact that tho word "know" ap
pears twenty-soven times Int he bible,
while the word "feeling" Is only used
twice and then not In connection with
conversion. With scrlptunyl proof and
un-questlonal logic the evangelist un
wound the threads which tangled the
mind of many people In relation to
works and grace. Ho argued that men
are not saved because they nr.o moral,
but because Christ died for them and
holler in Him Is that which saves. A
man is' not saved simply becausehe
Is a moral man, as tho book boldly
asserts "By Grace yo are saved,
through faith and that not or yoursel
ves, It Is the gilt or God; not or works
that no man should glory." (Eph 2:8-9)
Many scriptures were brought to
provo this argument. Dr Lowry said
"I would a3 soon attempt to cross Lake
Michigan In a peanut shell as to try
to get to heaven on my good works
Assurance ot Salvation Is
much to eyjry christian because he can
not be happy without U. Some chris
tians have Just enouffh of religion to
bo miserable. Thoy have not quite
enough to make them quit tho things
or the world such as the card-table,
tho dance, the theatre, their nagging
un-chrlstlan talking, and thoy have
just a lltflo too much to let them feel
comfortable while thoy carry on these
things. Dr. Lowry told of a woman
who attempted to excuse herself for

can never get too much of it. With a sleep
ing porch you MAKE SURE of eight hours
of it every night, seven nights a week for
yourself and your loved ones.
That is why every year more people sleep out
doors the year round, and their reward is all
around good health "overflowing health."
Any carpenter can add a sleeping porch to your
house at little cost. It is really cheaper, much
cheaper, than medicine and doctor bills.
It is particularly delightful during summer. It
is a fine place for the baby's nap.
Talk it over with us now and have it ready
when the warm weather comes. Let us give you
suggestions. This puts you to noobligation.
