The counly commissioners al
their session yesterday afternoon
did a very laudable act in passing
a resolution calling for bids fur
the grading of a road from this
city to Weeping Water ami Ne-
hawka, connecting with the O
street, mad leading into the city
of Lincoln. The road will also be
graded north from Weeping Wa
ter to Louisville, giving the peo
ple living in thai section a good
road over which they can travel to
Omaha, Lincoln or l'laltsmoiilh.
The grading will start a I. the U. It.

west into Mynard, going south
from there through Murray and
thence to Noliawka ami Weeping

From Wednesday's Dally.
Not infrequently one sees in the
papers today stories of how some
poor boy is working ten or twelve
hours each day at hard manual
labor and then walking a long di
stance at night, perhaps, to attend
a night school and acquire an!
education. Or perhaps he is sup
porting his widowed mother and
baby brothers and sisters and sit
ting up all night studying to be a
lawyer or doctor or some other
It is customary and considered
entirely proper to laud the actions
of those young men as highly
commendable. In them wo try to
recognize the spirit of Lincoln or
other of our national heroes who
have forced their way up through
adversity through untiring effort
to success. We point to the boy
who is willing to make this
sacrifice for self betterment as a
shining example nT nobility, to be
looked upon as a pattern by
Young America in general.
Far be it from us to discourage
or underrate a boy who is mak
ing a noble fight against adversity
and using every effort toward
these boys is a mistaken one.
We believe this for two reasons.
In the first place, it, is the excep
tion, rather than I ho rule, that, a
young man can iln an honest
lay s ton and ho physically or
ineiilallv able to carry on heavy
work in addition without doing
himself serious and permanent
injury. If this is the case it is
not right, for him to make this
acrillce. Heller to do Iho thing
that must be done and trust to a
heller time or more favorable
conditions lor the oilier Hung
ban to utterly destroy health by
making the sacrifice not a few of
these honorable, ambitious young
men are doing.
Then, looking al, it from the
standpoint of Iho world, are we
not right when we say that a con
dition of this sort is not some
thing to bo applauded from the of the
idelines, as it were, but some
thing that, the world in general
ought to bo interested in reliev
ing? True, it may be a groat
discipline for the young man to
rise through adversitv to success
if he rises. Hut if you will
show us one of these voting fcl-
ovvs who has risen through these
conditions you think he is so
noble to surmount, we will easilv
how you many limes that num
ber who have sunk down to hope
lessness under the press of these
same tempering circumstances.
When the young men who are
renlll "up against it" through no
fault of their own need is not a
great round of impersonal ap
plause for their heroism, but a
readjustment of conditions which
will make it possible, to reach suc
cess without, battling conditions
under which something like nine
hundred and ninety-nine out of
every thousand go down.
Is the worth of that one physi
cal and mental giant who battle
through the success enough to
overbalance Iho potential worth of
Iho others who fail to make good,
so that it is better to leave the
economic and sociological condi
tions of today as they are, to
prove Iho tempering fire for the
one, the unsurmountanlo harrier
for the many others? We serious
ly doubt it.
The price cards are the
same here ris at other stores, but the Quality behind
them is hotter. This is evidenced by the preference
accorded our Quality clothes
by the most discriminating
buyers. We can safely say
there are more of our Quality
clothes worn in Plattsmouth
than any other kind.
"There's a reason" and that
reason is found in the excep
tional and unequaled quality
that we furhnish. This is the
place "Where Quality
Counts" and where it has
counted for over 33 years.
The latest and best things in
fabric and style are found
here in satisfying abundance.
It is a pleasure to us to show
these garments. It will be
equal pleasure to you when
you see them. We guarantee
to fit you perfectly; to satisfy
you absolutely. Come and
