Lincoln county needs a now court
houso and needs it badly. Tho county
is ontiroly out of debt and I well able
to erect a building that would bo a
credit to tho county.
Tho government is asking us as a
patriotic duty to erect such buildings
at this time in order to "provide em
ployment for tho unemployed includ
ing tho soldier boys who are being de
mobilized. Such a building should be strictly
llro-proof and should bo built to pro
vide for tho future needs of the county.
In erecting a cour,t house a mom
orlal hall could .easily bo included
that would provide a meotlng place
for tho soldier boys, whefo they could
havo tholr reunion meetings from
time to time and In which tthero could
bo placed the record of every Lincoln
county boy who served In the war.
This record could bo made in bronzo
or marble so it would he imperishable.
This building should also provide
amplo rest room with easy seats, toilot
and lavatory facilities for the benefit
of farmers and their families when
they visit the county seat, also a suit
able seated room for farmers meet
It will tako from six months to a
year to arrange for financing a build
ing, procuring and agreeing upon
plans and letting a contract, and a
year or moro to erect it. and if wo
aro to respond to tho patriotic ruk-
gestlon of the government to assist in
providing employment In this critical
time, it is nono too soon to begin tho

Lists wore circulated among the
farmors who visited Brady last Satur
day to have them tako stock in a co
