COUNTY'S QUOTA IS I
1'LACKI) AT $170,200.00 '
LOCAL AND PERSONAL
County Chairman Temple, of tho
Liberty Loan organization, received n
tolegram Wednesday morning stating
that Lincoln county's quota In tho
Victory Loan had been placed nt
$47G,200. Tho telegram also stated
that the Victory loan notes will bear
four and three-fourth per cent lnter
st and will maturo In four years. Sov
on German helmets havo been award
ed to Lincoln county for distribution
among tho workers.
This quota Is equivalent to an av
orago of about $100 for each voter in
the county, which certainly Is not ex
cessive and it seems to us ought to
Tjo subsfirlbed without much effort on
the part of County Chairman Tem
ple and his committees. There are at
least two hundred men in tho county
who can subscribe qno thousand dol
lars each without impairing their re
sources or causing any inconvenience.
Tho question is will they como across.
Tho excuse put forth by some that
thoy will not buy the notes because
former bonds aro selling at a dis
count, is a very lame one. In the first
place nine-tenths of those who have
sold their bonds, didn't really need to
do so; had thoy practiced a little more I
economy tho bonds. thoy sold would'
still havo boon 'nest eggs." Even If
they did sell them at a discount, tho
sacrifice the discount represented is
incomparable with the financial sacri
fice to say nothing of other sacri
fices that the boys now. in service,
or who were in service, were forced
to make. If we were a soldier boy
who had returned from service over
seas and hearl a man remark that he
had "sacrificed" to the extent of sell
ing his $100 bond for $95 wo would
feel inclined to slap his face, know
ing full well that $5.00 was all the
war had cost him and that he was ab
solutely devoid of patriotism.
To Soldiers nnd Sailors.
All soldiers and sailors of the World
War In Lincoln county aro requested
to take part in the Victory Loan pa
rade, date to be announced, later. Ma
or J. S. Milam will bo In command of
this division. The committee desires
all soldiers and sailors to wear their
uniforms. This is the first opportuni
ty to have these veterans got together,
and with your help we will be able
to make this a showing creditable to
Lincoln county and western Nebras
ka. Effort will be made to extend to
you a personal invitation -but if we
cannot reach you by phone or other
wise, please consider this as addressed
directly to you. A. W. SHILLING,

Revenge Pays No Dividends
A desire to GET EVEN has caused many business fail
ures. If you ever conceive the idea of getting even with a
competitor, strifle it you cannot stay "even" with him
you must either lead or follow. Get ahead of him devote
your time, and talent to proving your mental and moral su
periority and you'll find lots more satisfaction and profit
in so doing. I have had many patients come to me because
they were disatisfled with other Dentists, and I feel safe
in saying not one of them can say I ever made slighting
remarks about other DentistsT Instead I make it a 'point,
(not because they were formerly patients of other dentists,
but because they are my patients) to prove myself worthy
of their patronage by giving them "Superior Sej-vice;"
better workmanship and the very best of materials and
charging them only what is right and proper. The suc
cess of this office is due to the fact that every patient re
ceives juBt such service. I do not have one class of ser
vice for the Rich man and another for the workingman.
That is the reason that I never try to "get even" it keeps,
me working overtime to take care of my business. Any size
bridge made and set the same, day.
