Surely there is unusual need this year for a day of sunshine. s Individual and ''nhtjgn require
Christmas cheer. It is fitting that we.scatter sunshine as never before; thal'wc give bountifully; that
the hope, the promise, the optimism of Christmas day be renewed and brightened, and this Yuletide
be n season of prdud and staunch patriotism. ' , .w ' 4 9
The preeminence of Clinton's as a gift store is pronounced. Each article in the store has the
characteristics of an ideal gift- ornamental, useful, enduring and desired. The reliability of our
stocks, even in the smaller, inexpensive things, is well known. One regards it as an extra compliment
to have the present come from Clinton's. "" -

Though in all lines stocks ore unusually large, we urge early selections, for it will be more
difficult than usual to increase sales forces in the rush weeks of December, and impossible to secure
goods to replace.those sold. Selections will be laid aside, if desired, until' Christmas.

RKAOIIES X EARLY
LOCAL AND PERSONAL
Final reports1 received since Tues
day by Chairman Wcingand of tho
Lincoln county subscriptions to the
Y. M. C. A. war work fund swellB tho
llgures to nearly sevOn thousand dol
lurs, or almost three thousand dollars
liioio than tho amount that Lincoln
county was supposed to contribute.
Cortalnly tho showing Is a most cred
itable one, and every contributor can
rest assured that his money will bo
well spent and that it will bring to
thd soldlor bays a vast amount of com
fort, entertainment and healthful phy
sical exercise in addition to surround
ing them with moral environments
that they would not otherwise possess.
In the appended list, tho difference
In tho subscriptions of tho various
towns Is not tin much duo to lack of
lntorest In tho soldier boys as to lack
of organization In tho subscription
campaign. At those places whore the
local committees wero aggressive and
solicited from everybody, tho sums
were largo; while at othor points
where the committees woro loss actlvo
the amount Is correspondingly less.
Particularly strong is tho showing
made by Sutherland and Brady.
To this total should bo added tho
subscription of tho Union Pacific,
which Is to credited to Lincoln coun
ty. Tho exact amount of this sub
scription could not bo ascertained,
but is somewhere between $300 and
Tho totals from tho different Iplacos
were as follows:
North Platto - $3781.62
Fox Creek 53.00
