Cass County S. S. Convention.
The ninth annual convention of
the Cass County Sunday School asso
ciation will be held in the charming
little city of Elmwood, Tuesday and
Wedneseday, October 26 and 27
This Is an interdenominational meet
ing and is the only Sunday school
gathering of tho kind held in the
county. It Is characterized by the
presence of the most successful Sun
day school managers and teachers in
the county, and its deliberations are
becoming more important each year.
This year's .convention promises to
be the most enthusiastic and most
representative of any of its predeces
sors. The program Is in preparation
and will present some of the best
Sunday school experts in this part of
the Btate. The school that does not
send a full quoto of delegates will
be much the loser. Any Protestant
Sunday school in the county can send
delegates. Elmwood will furnish
free entertainment for all such. Re
member the dates, October 26 and
27, and select delegates early.

A. J. Snyder (that sounds like a
Republican name, but A. J. is a
Democrat) wa3 here from Murray.
Mr. Snyder is out for the office of
register of deeds on the Democratic
ticket. An amusing incident came
under our observation regarding Mr.
Snyder. He gave his card to a cer
tain Louisville Republican. About
twenty years ago the Republican in
question was thrashing in Mr. Sny
der's neighborhood. One dark night
while moving the separator it tumb
led into a ditch with the Republican
under it. He needed help, and it
didn't matter to him just then
whether it was a Republican, Dem
ocrat, pop or cold water prohlb; just
so he got out. Snyder assisted him
In the niche of time. "So you are
the fellow that pulled me out from
under the separator, are you?" asked
the Republican. "Well, if you get
but one Republican vote this fall you
may depend on it that I cast it. I
will never go back on a fellow who
once saved my life." Louisville

"Girls," by Clyde Fitch, with the
firm anme of Shuberts as producing
managers, is about the best induce
ment the most critical theater-goer
desires, and, needless to say, thou
sands have profited by witnessing the
play at Daly's theater, where It ran
for a year. "Girls" is a comedy that
would compel "Sober Sue" to more
than smile. It is constructed along
strictly original lines, and brimful
of situations that compel laughs to
flow incessantly, and while this
seems to be the author's objective
point, he has not overlooked the sen
timental or serious side. "Girls"
contains a pretty love story so clev
erly interwoven in the plot which
is not disclosed until the end that
the interest does not lessen. "Girls"
is a tonic for all ages and many a
girl will profit by the good, whole
some lesson It teaches. "Girls" comes
to the Burwood theater, Omaha,

Pacific, and escorted him to jail. Tbe
man only had three pint bottles and
a half pint stowed about his clothes

he had on a load of joyful that had
knocked him out. He went along
quietly with the officer, and said that
he did not care, because the Missouri
Pacific always paid his fines and took
