Loaning Books. You have In your library a set of books that you very much prize. The et is Incomplete because a year ago neighbor who has since removed to another city, borrowed two volumes and did not return them. Your first mistake was la loaning the books; your next, In not reclaiming after the lapse of two or three months. I would rather loan a complete set from my library than to break it by the loan ot a single volume. One many always give a friend permission to come and read such a book In the room where it fcelongs. When anyone borrows a book and retains it indefinitely, a note should be sent, politely begging for Us return. People do not borrow , your clothing, Jewelry or bric-a-brac, but, trangely enough, many persons dis play no reluctance in asking the loan of a book. You, of course, have your own exceptions; there are dear friends to whom books are precious, who lenow how to care for them and with -whom it is a pleasure to exchange them at discretion. Woman's Home Companion. More Than He Could Say. A native-born American member of party of four business men who of ten lunched together took great de light In Joking the others on tholr for eign birth. "It's all very well for you fellows to talk about what we need in this country," he said, "but when you come to think of it, you're really only in truders. Not one of you was born here. You're welcome to this country, of course, but you really oughtn't to for ret what you owe us natives who open our doors to you." "Maybe," said an Irishman In the arty, thoughtfully. "Maybe. But thfcre's one thing you seem to forget: I came into this country wld me fare paid an' me clothes on me back. Can you say the same?" Everybody's Magazine. An Exception. "Thus culinary Journal states that all good cooks peel their onions under water," remarked the boarder who is always reading odd items. "That's nothing unusual," laughed he comedian boarder. "I know a cook who peels his vegetables underwater." "Ridiculous!" "Not at all. He is cock on a sub marine boat." 23:15 0'C!ock. A New York manufacturing cuncern 1n which onlv one-half of the emulovea work in the daytime has a 24 hour clock in the timekeeper's office, by which the work record Is noted. The business day begins at one o'clock in the morning, and when other clocks indicate mldr.ignl OJ.a factory time piece shows that it Is It V-ijck. The men who go in work at the ordi narily known as six p. m., re corded as having started at 18 oYlock. The people In charge of the work tny that this change In the timekeeping method has prevented many errors, and although, it took the men a little while to become accustomed to It they now speak of 14 and 16 o'clock In a matter-of-fact way and without the smile which at first the strange fig ures provoked. Relief for Toothache. If the tooth has a cavity use liquid ammonia. Spray from medicine drop per directly into the cavity. He very sure and not touch the tender gum. If there is an ulcerated root prepare a poultice of flaxseed meal, mixed with water. But in a small vessel and ap ply to the gum, covering the swelling. Spread on small pieces of linen no larger than the end of the finger, fold one thickness over the poultice. Re new Just aa fast as they cool. This will soften the ulceration and cause it to break in a short time. Have a sec ond party prepare the poultice, If pos sible, as It must be done quickly. Keep hot water bottle outside of bandage. One Way to Appear Young. A wise young woman gives as her reason for having learned the vertical writing: "This form cf writing has been used for but a few years In some Khools. When I have occasion to write to anybody they are very apt to conclude from my handwriting that I have been out of school but a few years, and accordingly 1 will be consid ered a real young woman. "This does not count for so much at present, for I am only 23 years, but It msy count a great deal in getting ma a start In the friendship of a man later. I will not of course He about triy ge, but I will get a more favorable tart." PIONKKK DAY NOTES. Preparations for Pioneer day, September 2, continue apace and this now promises to be one of the great est days of the big meeting. Chairman Windham has been mak ing great preparations for the day and is sparing no effort to secure good attractions. He is today in re ceipt of communications from Hon. F. E. White and Hon. Orlando Tefft signifying their intention of attend ing the big meeting and accepting the Invatatlons to deliver addresses that day. Senator Tefft speaks dur ing the afternoon, while Mr. White addresses the banquet in the even ing. Both are well known and pop ular speakers and will be listened to with great attention. Mr. Windham also announces that the speaking will be held in the big tent north of the court house, the Invitation of the Christian church people being accepted. This is done because of the long climb up the hill to Garfield park and the nearness of the tent to Main street. Mr. Windham has also secured the office of McMaken & Sons for the place of exhibit relics of the pioneer days. Everyone having anything re lating to early Nebraska is Invited to bring the same to this place, where they will be placed in show. Col. McMaken has arranged his magnifi cent exhibit so that it can be shown to advantage and the place will be a vertltable museum of early Nebraska. Several very highly Interesting relics of early days have been secured In addition to his fine exhibit. J. C. Coleman has kindly donated for use at the exhibition the old organ brought to Nebraska when the Me thodist church was established. Con rad Schlater at that time played the instrument and was the first organ player In this vicinity. As a memen to of the old days he will play this same organ, a priceless relic, on September 2 and the present Metho dist choir will sing. This will be highly interesting and a striking re membrance of the past. Another relic will be the bell from Peter A. Sarpy's ferry boat which operated at St. Mary's and later at Oreapolls, fifty years ago. The boat was sunk In the Platte river and all which ever was recovered of It was the bell which was donated to the Catholics of this city by Sarpy. Later It passed into the hands of John Fitzgerald, who donated it to St. John's church when the latter was founded. Afterwards It was given to Conrad Schlater when a larger bell was obtained for the church and he in turn passed it on to his sons for use on their ranch. It was condi tioned that it should return to him when they sold the ranch and later It came back here, and has been In use on the Schlater-Fltzgerald property north of this city. Mr. Schlater kindly has this on exhibition as an interesting relic of early days. These are not near all but they show the genreal trend of the exhi bits, rioneer day will be a winner for true. A reception committee of ladles for active service at Coates' hall on Pioneers' day, September 2, has been selected and the members notified of their choice. This committee will consist of Mesdames S. L. Thomas, E. E. Hilton, II. J. Strelght, E. A. Kirkpatrlck, William Taylor, L. C. Todd and Miss Olive Guss. These will be the active reception commit tee and will hold forth at Coates' hall on Thursday, September 2 . An honorary reception committee consisting of a number of the aged pioneer ladies of Nebraska has also been selected and invitations have been sent them asking their attend ance on Thursday, September 2: Mesdames J. F. Buck, Lloyd Gapen, Allen Beeson, W. W. Wiley, Isaac Wiles and George Mayfleld. Over 100 tickets for the pioneers' banquet Thursday evening, Septem ber 2, have been sold and those of the aged citizens desiring places at the festal board should send In their applications early, as the number who can bo accommodated are lim ited. 'Not over 200 can be accom modated, it is said, and thoso who have not yet secured tickets will do well to send In for them. Shorthorns for Bale. Three sood registered Shorthorn year.'ing bulls for sale. Also good fresh milk cows. Mark White. Program of Merchants Carnival. Platts mouth, Nebraska. AGRICULTURAL DAY, SEPT. I.

A man that is doing any hard work at all needs a fresh shirt every day. This means that you have to have a good supply on hand. We can help yon. For Carnival Week we have just secured from a large jobber a lot of soft shirts with collars attached, which were slightly soiled by machine oil in manufacturing them. On some of them you can scarcely notice it, and on all of them it will come out in the first washing. These shirts arejfull cut with long full sleeves, double sewed throughout, and are mostly black and white patterns that will not fade. At the present price of cotton these shirts could not be made for less than 75c or $1. We bought thel lot at a great reduction and are going to give you the benefit by pricing them to you at 1 bis would scarcely buy the material alone. We have all sizes now. Better come before they are broken. UrJDERUEAn UNDERWEAR From now until the close of Carnival Week we are going to offer you all of our 50c and 75c balbriggan plaiu and tancy underwear at the remarkahly low price of I Understand this ts our regular line of under wear and as long as the sizes last you can buy them at 39c, CASH MONEY. SUITS SUITS SUITS Now, about those fine Quality Suits that we are selling at half price. We have 11 of them left. They are good sizes and elegant patterns. You certainly can't make money any faster than by buying them. You can wear any of them till snow flies, aud they'll be ready to do service for you next spring. Look in our corner win 1 dow and you will see 3 of these suits just half price. Handkerchiefs We have sold over 40 dozen of men's plain white kerchiefs this summer at 5c each. The greatest handkerchief bargain ever brought to Platts mouth. We still have a few left at 5c a half a dime. There are many other Carnival Bargains in here that you will do well to avail yourself of. "Come early and avoid the rush" applies in this case. , Uoscotrs ons THE HOME OF SATISFACTION I AA I Return From South lakotu. Messrs. Adam Kaffenborger and Adam FornofT, who have been spend ing several days on their farms near Huron, S. I)., have returned to their homes in this vicinity, returning Inst evening. They report that the hail storm several weeks ago In that sec tion did an incalculable amount of damage to the crops, and that the loss Is very heavy. Mr. KalTen berger's land was on the edge of the storm, and ho did not suffer as se verely as most others. His tenant had a number of acres of wheat cut before the storm came, and this Is yielding well, the remainder being largely a loss. His corn was also badly cut by the hall and will not yield anything like as heavy as it should. Mr. KalTenborger, however, thinks himself very fortunate to es cape so happily. Mr. Fornolt wus not so fortunate and the wheat on his farm Is practically a total loss, as nono of It had been cut when the storm took place. Corn generally throughout that country Is fine and in good condition and, barring an early frost, will make u good crop. Miss Anna Fisher Is expected to arrive In the city this evening for a visit with Mr. and Mrs. Anton W. Vetcsnik until after the carnival. Noth-c, The banquet to be given at Coates' hall on September 2 at 6 o'clock p. m. is not confined to pioneers and old settlers, but it is open to every ono who wishes to attend. One of the prlnclplo objects of meeting around the banquet board is to blcMid together early territorial rem iniscences with those of statehood. There will be responses from persons representing every period since the organization of the territory up to the present time. It Is the deHlre thol ihoso who are now eDjoying the blessings of the present may hear and loam something about what those who were laying tho founda tions for present state prosperity passed through with. A most elab orate provision will be made for the tables, and tho occnslon will bo en livened with music. Price of tickets, 50 cents. Make application to any of the undersigned, or buy of ticket sellers. S. L. THOMAS," CONRAD SCHLATER, HENRY E1KENDERY, THOMAS WILES, J. M. MEISINGER, B. 8. RAMSEY, R. B.
