Frank Gobelman and Assistant
Are Still Busy Beautifying
Frank Gobelman and his able
assistant, H. II. Cotton, have been
doing some interior painting,
decorating and paper hanging
recently that would please the
eye of the most critical gentle
men in town. These artists
painted the ceiling and hung the
paper at the Journal office and
did it in such a manner as to
make it look as good as new.
They next painted the walls and
decorated the ceiling and hung
paper in the Calumet restaurant
under the Riley, owned by Eddie
Collins. The north lower room of
the Riley block, formerly oc
cupied by the postofllce, next had
the attention of these artists and
the woodwork was painted and the
walls and ceiling nicely papered.
This room will be occupied by
Miss Myers for a millinery store.
The room formerly occupied by
John Nemelz will received the at
tention of Mr. Gobelman and as
sistant imemdiately, and will be
occupied by A. L. Henry with his

south of Mr. Henry's new stand
is to be occupied at once by a
gentleman from Omaha-who will
run a tailoring establishment.
In addition to these samples of
skill and workmanship, Mr. Gobel
man has just completed the
painting of Mr. Henry's car and
made it look as good as new, and

car of Arthur Troop, which he will
paint a steel gray.

Henry Soennichson, who has
been on the road for the past four
months in the interests of the
Skinner Maccaroni company,
cams in this morning for the first
time since he entered the employ
of that company. Henry proved
himself a good man for the com
pany, and no doubt they will
seriously regret his resignation.
Circumstances here compelled his
return home to assist his father
in the store. Henry is a good boy
and his absence from home so
long has demonstrated that he is
a young man of grit and energy
to make good in any position you

What the Old and New Law Says
Regarding Pay for Such
At a recent session of the
county commissioners a question
arose as to the pay for cleaning
snowdrifts in roadways. Now,
here is a substance of the old
and new law regarding the mat
ter and the sum allowed each man
turning out to do the work, and
also for teams. Hereafter we
hope there will be no dispute
about the matter,, and that those
who are brave enough to turn out
and do the work will receive pay
for doing the same:
"Under an old law district over
seers are supposed to keep open
all roads traveled by rural car
riers of mail, so that they would
be passable to ordinary travel.
"Under the optional county
highway commission law, the dis
trict road overseers, directed by
the county highway commission
er, in those counties which have
accepted the law, must open all
mail routes to (raffle if com
plaint is lodged by any post
master, mail carrier or patron of
a mail route. Action must bo
prompt, within twenty-four hours
in factvThe district overseer may
call on anyone to turn (tut with
shovel or. team. Such drafted
workman is (o receive 30 cents
per hour for his labor and as
much more for his team, such
payments to be made from Ihe
district road funds. Under (he
older law persons opening snow
drifts so that (raffle will be un
impeded receive 20 cents per hour
for their labor and SO cents per
hour if they use their teams."
