"Where Quality Counts.-
Supt. Gamble Calls Attention to
Its Provisions and Its
Wti wish to call the attention of the
parents and business men of the city
to the compulsory attendance and child
labor laws. The compulsory attendance
law requires that all children between
the ages of seven and fourteen years
must attend school the entire time that
school is in session. Children between
the ages of fourteen and sixteen who
h'lve not completed the eighth grade
are also required to attend school the
entire time it is in session. Any par
ent who neglects or refuses to comply
with this law is subject to a fine of not
le3s than $5.00 nor more than $25.00
for each offense.
The child labor law leaves any per
son liable who em a'y8 anv l'h'ld under
fourteen during the time school is in
session and also leaves them liable if
they employ any child between the
ages of fourteen and sixteen who has
not completed the eighth grade and
who does not have a certificate issued
by the city superintendent of schools.
The penalty for the violation of this ,
act is indicted upon both parent and
employer.. Whoever employs a child
under sixteen and whoever having un
der his control a child under such age
ar.d permits u child to be employed in
violation of this act shall for each of
fense be fined not more than $50.00 and
whoever continues to employ any cild
after being notified shall for every day
thereafter that such employment con
tinues be fined not less than $5.00 nor
more than $20.00 per day.
The foregoing is a brief summary of
the two laws both of which are being
violated in this city. We wish to urge
.upon' parents Hnd employer the neces
sity of complying with this law at
once. A truant officer has been en
ployed by the board of education and
i3 now securing the names of children
who are out of school both employed
anil unemployed. Beginning Monday,
Oct. 11, every child found living in vio
lation of these acts, will be taken into
custody by the truant officer and notice
served upon parent or employer. All
violators of these acts to be taken be
fore the police judge for a hearing.
This notice will be given publicity
that all may have an opportunity to
meet its requirements. The age of
every child of school age is on file in
the office of the city superintendent,

NOT NOW'S THE TIME TO HAVE US GET BUSY.
COAL 2000 MAN
All Men of Undoubted Honesty and Em
minently Fitted to Serve the People
for the Next Two Years.
Laurence H. Daft, the republican
candidate for register of deeds is a
young man of good habits and one that
has had several years experience along
the lines that would especially equip
him for the office. His experience as
l a bookkeeper is just the experience
which one needs to carry on the work of
the office of register of deeds. This is
an office in which great care and
accuracy is needed, and in the selection
of a man to vote for, no one should
hesitate when he comes to the name of
; Laurence II. Daft. Mr. Daft was born
in Illinois and reared on a farm. He
; graduated from the High school at
I Farmington and then went to the state
university. After leaving that institu
tion he taught school several years, and
was then offered a position with the
First National Bank at Greenwood in
this county, which position he has held
for several years. His experience has
admirable qualified him for the position
of register of deeds, and his selection
is an assured fact.
Martin Friedrich has made a good
commissioner. No one will deny that
fact. The office of county commissioner
is a peculiar one. No man can step into
that office untried and expect the work
to go one as it did before. A wrong
move may mean a big loss to the
county in a financial way. If there is
any office in the county that needs the
work of an experienced man it is the
office of county commissioner. The
voter who stops to think about it can
come to no other conclusion. V.'ith the
important matters that are liable to
come up during the next two years it
imperative that the members of the
board of county commissioners should
be men who have had experience in the
John Gerry Stark, candidate for
& : - I a 1
I tuumy treasurer, if one ui me uuie
and representative men of Cass county.
The fact that the community in which
he lives considers him one of the best
rrien in that community and that they
feel if he is elected that his place can
not well be filled, is sufficient evidence
that he is the right sort of a man to
fill the office of county treasurer of
Cass county. Those who know Mr.
Stark best are his most enthusiastic
supporters, regardless of party affilia
tion, and the county affairs which come
under his care will be well looked after.
Mr. Stark is the kind of man who says
just what he thinks and you can depend
on what he says, and that is the kind
ot man to have charge of public affairs.
The fact that the oppisition can
find no fault with Carroll D. Quinton,
republican candidate for sheriff, ex
cept that he has made a good officer
for two terms and therefore ought not
to have any more, should be sufficient
to return him to the sheriff's office
with an increased majority. The rotten
insinuation that have been made
against his honesty will only tend to
increase his vote all over the county.
No one who knows Sheriff ' Quinton
takes any stock is the underground
campaign of the opposition.
Of course, as far as George Lushin
sky is concerned, the campaign need be
carried on no farther. Somehow George
is making friends wherever he goes.
This is not surprising. Everyone who
comes in contact with him becomes
convinced that he is just the man for
county clerk and that no better choice
could have been made at the primary.
A native of Germany, he came to
America when quite a youngster and
fitted himself for life by securing a
good education. He talks the German
language like a native and writes it
equally good. This means a whole lot
to our large German population and
we predict that when Mr. Lushinsky
has been installed in the office of
county clerk he will make the most
popular and efficient officer the county
has ever had.
Judge Becson needs no introduction
to the people of Cass county, for his
natural ability for filling the office with
his gentlemanly conduct at all times
has made him very popular with the
public. The duties of the office are
such that the judge has not been able
to get over the county as much as
some of the other candidates and for
that reason every friend of Judge Bee
son should take it upon himself to see
that he receives a good big majority to
show him how much the people of the
county appreciate him.
The selection of E. E. Odell by the
republicans who participated in the
primaries was a wise move. Mr. Odell
has made a success of school work in
every rapacity he has filled. He is a
young man filled with the determina
tion to succeed and for that reason the
success of the schools under his guid
ance will be assured. His ambition in
life is to make a success of himself in
educational work. He has taken up
that work as his life work. He will
put his whole soul into that'work, and
therefore will make it a success. As a
man he can do work that cannot be
done by the other sex. There are no
handicaps confronting him. He has an
open track with no obstacles to over
come but those which natural confront
one in the pursuit of success. As county
superintendent of the schools of Cass
county he is naturally endowed with
those gifts which will make our schools
the best in the state, and with that de
termination to make them so it means
B. I. Clements, the candidate for
coroner has filled the position one term
and has been nominated for another.
There is no particular fight on the office
of coronor, but just the same there are
times when the office in charge of an
experienced man would mean the sav
ing of money to the county. Give Mr.
Clements another term.
Probably never in the history of Cass
county, have the republicans placed be
fore the people such a set of candidates
as they have upon the ticket this year.
Every one of them is a man above re
proach. Every one of them is a man
who is peculiarly fitted for the office to
which he aspires. Every one of them
are men who would be a credit to the
county in any cajiacity.and there should
be no excuse for any republican voting
for the other fellow. Don't vote for
any man just because you like to give
him a good vote. Many a good man
has been defeated just because repub
licans helped out the other fellow, not
because they thought ' he ought to
be elected, but because they want
ed to see him get a good vote.
Nebraska was put to the bad last fall
because republicans thought W. J.
Bryan ought to get a good vote in his
own tate. That fact and that alone
was responsible for the defeat of many
other republicans. When a man gets
to voting for people out of sympathy,
heslmuldbe very careful, for many
J time.; there are just cr.ough other fel
lows who do the same thing which al
together results in enough votes to
j elect the man that Rhould not have
I been elected. Vote your convictions,
I not your sentiments.
Mr. Smith's Statement. , j
The articles that have appeared in '
the Lincoln Journal and other papers i
might lead the public to believe that 1 '
am carrying some person's money ,
around in my pocket and refusing to
give it up. In justice to my family.my
friends, and myself I am prompted to '
say that the government has always ,
received every cent belonging to it.and :
I do not owe an employee in this office
one penny, and I have not a single
penny of any person s money that I
have obtained wrongfully.

Methodist Tender Reception.
The membership of the Methodist
church tendered a farewell reception,
Friday night, in the church basement
to Rev. and Mrs. Houlgate who leave
this week for their new appointment at
Madison. While they have been with
the church here but ono year they
have won many close and lasting friend
ships as was evidenced by the large
crowd that gathered to bid them fare
well. The evening was spent in social
conversation. Late in the evening light
refreshments were served, after which
J. A. Fleming, on behalf of these as
sembled, presented Rev. and Mrs.
Houlgate with a carpet aa a token of
their respect and esteem. The Junior
League presented Mrs. Houlgate, who
has been their leader during the year
with a beautiful spoon. Following the
presentation of these tokens the assem
blage sang "God Be With You Till We
Meet Again." Rev. Houlgate was
called upon for a few words and re
sponded by expressing his thanks for
the kindness shown and begged to be
excused from further remarks. During
the year. Rev. Houlgate has worked
persistently for the upbuilding of the
church along spiritual lines and his re
moval is to be greatly regretted. They
have the best wishes of the church
wherever the future may lead them.
