Robert Sherwood & Son Closing
Out Stock With Determination
of Quitting Business.
From Wednesday' Pally.
As will be seen from their ad
vertisement, appearing on an
other page of this paper, one of
IMallsnionlh's pioneer business
linns is about to close out their
slock and retire. We speak of
the firm of Sherwood & Son, which
has been in the active business
life of the cily for the past thirty
live years.
It was in the centenial year,
187(5, that Kobert Sherwood, sr.,
first started in the shoe business,
locating in a building situated
where the present meat market of
Kunsmann & Hamge is located.
Here he continued to slay for
several years, then removed to a
building then situated on the site
of the Bookmcycr building. Mr.
Sherwood stayed here until 18811,
w hen a lire swept away I he build
ing and Ihe conlents and it was
then he erected the building at
the corner of Fifth and Main
street, now known as the Krug
building, and occupied the same
with his shoe store and, remained
until 11)01, when lit" removed to
the present location on Main
In 181)5 Robert Sherwood, jr.,
was taken into the business and
Ihe firm changed lo Sherwood &
Son. This firm has had a great
many hard experiences in its
career; first, a lire in 1883, then
on July 17, "'1902, a disastrous
flood swept dow n upon I hem,
causing Ihe walls of their build
ing to crumble down, entailing the
loss of several hundred dollars'
worth of slock, and they had
hardly recovered from this when
on August 20, the same year, Ihey
were again visited by a flood that
lost them much properly' and
goods, but with determination and
grit Ihey continued in business at
the old si ami, ami it is with re
gret that we see them retire from
the line of business in which Ihev
have been so long engaged. It is
Ihe universal wish that Ihev may
be prosperous in whatever line of
business Ihey may engage in, or
wherever they may cast their lot.
Many Driven From Home.
Kvery year, in many parts of
the country, thousands are
driven from their homes by
coughs and lung diseases. Friends
and business are left behind for
other climates, but this is costly
and not always sure. A better
way the way of multitudes is lo
use Dr. King's New Discovery and
cure yourself at home. Slay right
there, with your friends, and take
this safe medicine. Throat and
lung troubles llnd quick relief
and beallh returns, lis help in
coughs, colds, grip, croup, whoop
ing cough and sore lungs make it
a positive blessing. 50c and

J. W. Hiuwick, the veteran

able to be around again.

From Wednesday's I)aily.
While in the cily this morning
Hubert Wilkinson, the Dunbar
auctioneer, paid this ofllee a
pleasant call, and in conversation
with him he tells us that he has
taken a partner, one who will be a
valuable assistant to him in the
handling of his sales, in the per
son of L. J. Hall of Union. Mr.
Hall has had a great deal of ex
perience in Ihe stock line and his
judgment as lo value is good. He
has assisted Mr. Wilkinson in a
number of large sales and has
displayed great ability to the end
of securing the top price for all
properly placed in the ring. When
sales are large enough both men
will attend them, which will be
worth 10 to 20 per cent lo Ihe
parly giving the sale, as it has
been demonstrated that two good
men are capable of securing more
money from the same amount of
properly than one. This has been
tried by all the leading auc
tioneers of Ihe slate, and while
Mr. Wilkinson has been among
the last to take a partner, he has
never before been able to find the
right man. Willi Hie two men at
Ihe service of the sale holder it
does not increase Ihe price; the
terms will remain the same as in
years gone by when Mr. Wilkin
son did all the work himself. Their
territory will exlend over the en
tire southeastern portion of Ne
braska, and it has been almost
impossible for one man to look
after il.
The Schulz sale was one of the
best that has ever been held in
this section, over $2,800 being
taken in. Everything sold well
and brought top-notch prices.
The sale was clerked by H. F.
Patterson of the Hank of Cass

Hogs Have Ride in Automobile.
From Wednesday's Dally.
On -Friday afternoon the
citizens of Avoca realized the fact
that the automobiles made for
passengers could be of other use
than to joy ride or make business
trips, when Eugene Stutt, one of
nur prominent farmers, living
about six miles from here, used
his automobile to deliver hogs to
our slock buyer, Peter M. Jorgen
sen. We have seen lumber and a
number of other freight articles
hauled in automobiles, but this is
the first one we have seen used
in delivering hogs. Has any com
munity of the state of Nebraska
any more progressive methods
than this? If so, please let us
hear from them. This means of
delivering hogs to market is
certainly a good one in hot
weather, as the shrink on the
hogs should be very light, owing
to the breeze that is created by
the speed of the car, and also the
short time en route.

Where Differences of Opinion
Abound in the Application
of the Principle.
From Wednesday's Dally.
All agree Ihat Ihe theory of
home patronage is a splendid
thing, but where differences of
opinion abound is in the applica
tion of Ihe principle, says the
Oamha Trade Exhibit.
Every man with anything to
sell believes firmly that the peo
ple of his community should pre
fer lo buy of him rather than of
any foreign competitor.
The seller can see no good rea
son for the failure to observe the
home patronage principle in ten
cases out of ten.
Hut when the seller becomes a
buyer, what then?
Well, it seems to make all Ihe
difference in the worbl whose ox
is gored.
Hankers, for example, are de
pendent absolutely upon their
home communities for the great
bulk of their profitable business.
And yet, as a class, they are the
most flagrant violators of the
home patronage principle. If
everybody were to follow their ex
ample,'' there' wouM be no banks
outside of cities, because 'there
would be no small business com
munities on the map.
Retailers, too, are often limes
violators of the home patronage
principle when buying, though
ardently for it when selling. Many
of them have not yet learned Ihat
preaching home patronage is not
one-tenth as effective as practic
ing it.
No one with anything lo sell
should expect people lo buy
merely because Ihe prospective
buyer and seller happen to live
in the same town.
Of course there is a somewhat
indefinite obligation resting upon
Ihe buyer lo buy at home and thus
do his part toward the upbuild
ing of the community.
Hut there is an even greater
obligation resting upon the seller
lo offer merchandise of such
qualities and such values, and to
render service of the proper
character, so that the buyer will
have something substantial to
justify home buying.
When both sellers and buyers
respect and observe the home
patronage principle, the results
are naturally beneficial to the
community in which they reside
as well as to themselves. Hut
there is much more involved than
sending money away or keeping il
at home. The distinct sides of
the question the seller's obliga
tion and the buyer's obligation
bolh deserve most careful con
