The Needs of the Farmers to
Compete in the Workings of
the Commercial Club!
The following interesting and
truthful article in regard to the
needs of the. farmers fr joining
with the Commercial clubs of the
cities for the betterment of each
other has recently appeared in the
press of the .-tale from an ad
dress by s. It. McKelvic, and we
b.-licve the truth of the statement
made will be clearly seen by the
farmers of this county, as well as
the members of the Commercial
club of this city:
That the farmer should be a
member of the Commercial club
in his nearby town is based upon
the fad that the interests of the
town and eoutitryare so identical,
so inseparable and so common
that neither can prosper in its
fullest measure without a sincere
spirit of co-operation amongst
all of the people of the com
munity. v
Commercial clubs are organized
for fur.thevi'nc: the business in
terests of Ihi" community. Some
bae the mistaken idea that their
only purpose is to promote the
iuleivsfs of the city anil the busi
ness no n in town. o doubt there
are some Commercial clubs
founded upon Ibis hitter basis,
but those Commercial clubs can
not permanently prosper nr. at
b-.i-t. they cannot do their most
ll'eclive work. This is true be
cause the town and country are
interdependent and whatever af
fects the farmer or the man in
town affects both in smaller or
larger measure.
The ;nly difference between
town ami r-ounlry is this: The
country i the place of production,
vhiie the town is the point of dis
tribution. Hoth arc needed, both
are indispensable, and it simply
remains, to s lve the problem of
production ami distribution along
lines of greatest efficiency and
eciH:iN'."" " -
The farmer is tpiife as in
terest. -d in the distribution of his
products as the man in town is
interested in the production of
farm products. W hen the farm is
mad.- to produce abundantly and
the prices are commensurate with
the cost of production, at the
same time allowing a fair and
honest margin- of profit for the
producer, the most satisfactory
condition is realized. These are
the conditions upon which Com
mercial clubs in Nebraska, par
ticularly in the small town, must
lie founded.
When the farmer" anil the man
ia town join together in the solu
t ion uf the problems of production
and distribution, not only will
these problems be most readily
and effectively solved, but a 'very
much better feeling will be
brought- to enter as between these
two men. In the very outset, the
association together will reruov
any feelings of distrust and lhes
ind; will most naturally come lo
get lien on a basis of mutual ad
antage and mutual benefit. Thr
results therefore, will not show-
forth quite as prominently in an
improved social condition in the
I am very earnest jn my belief
that farmers should be members
of Commercial clubs and that the
men in town should do all in their
power to bring this condition
about, not through motives of
selfishness, but through a desire
fop mutual helpfulness.

ltus noon there arrived at the
home of Mr. ami Mrs. Kmil A.
I.orenz a bright-eyed little daugh
ter to gladden thejr home and
lies. The little lady, who is the
first child in the family, is the
object of great admiration from
its relatives and the joy of the
proud parents is unbounded.

who have recently moved to this
city from Wahoo. are also de

descendants. The little girl is of

Could Not Make Examination.
From Wednesday's Daily. ,
The head of a pet wolf, which
was supposed to have contracted
hydrophobia and was killed by the
owner, was sent in to the state
bacteriological laboratory from
Plattsmouth last Saturday, for an
examination as to the animal's
condition. On account of the fact
that the owner had killed the xvnlf
by pounding it over the head with
a heavy club, breaking all the
skull bones, the brain had been
battered up and no test could, be
made to discover whether or not
hydrophobia was present. Before
the animal was put to death, it
bit the owner's small son.

The members of Company I of
Clenwood, who are practicing at
the I'. S. government ritle range,
north of (he city, are busily at
work in their shooting and sev
eral members .if the company
have made excellent records dur
ing the time they have been work
ing at the range. They are very
much pleased with the range for
this work and state that it is the
best they hae shot oer, as the
bluffs on the west prevent the
changing of the wind which so
often interferes with satisfactory
work on dilTerent ranges. So well
pleased are the members of the
Iowa National Cuard .over the
range that Company K. located at
Cornin'-r. has announced their in
tention of coming here in two
weeks to take a course in shooting
over the range. . The situation of
the ritle ran ere is an ideal one and
all the soldiers, both regulars and
militiamen, who have worked
there state il is one of the best in
the count ry. w hich it undoubtedly
is. The (ilenwood boys who have
been here are a line bunch of
gentlemen and it is heartily wish
ed that they may return later for
a pracl ice here.

The question of paxmtr the al
leys in the business part of ttn
city is being ipiite well agitate. I in
the past few days among the busi
ness men and citieus in general
and the good work wil Ibe con
tinned until the actual paing is
staited. The matter was brought
up at the council meeting Monday
evening, and while receiving a
large majority, was not able to
muster .sufficient votes to allow
the passage of a resolution to put
in the paving, but now that the
tprestion has been more thor
oughly discussed and talked over
among the iimcrcnl memhers
there is little doubt thot it would
be passed. It is the intention in
a few days to prepare petitions
for circulation among the busi
ness men asking that the paving
be done, ami which will be pre
sented to the city council. There
is hardly a person in the business
section of the city who does rod
heartily favor the idea of paving
the alleys, as the peed of it is so
apparent, especially after a heavy
rain, when the mud becomes al
most impassable in these alleys,
and forces a hardship on the mer
chants who have their delivery
wagons operating through the
alleys. The proposition offered
is for the use of concrete paving
throughout and the cost of this
will be very low lo the properlv
owners and will insure a greater
benefit, to them than is possible to

Tho Merchants and Clubs of the
City Want Shorter
From Wednesday's Daily.
'the extremely hot weather of
the past lew days brings to mind
the question of the J o'clock clos
ing of the stores of the city in
order to alford the proprietors
and clerks an opportunity to get
out and enjoy for a few hours the
fresh air and escape the stilling
heat of the stores and down-town
section of the city for a time, as
well as to visit, with their fam
ilies. There is no question but
that it would be just as easy and
convenient for the majority of the
people to do their shopping and
trading before t o'clock as it
would be for them to do it after
(hat hour.
There is a need of everyone to
enjoy a few minutes of the day in
recrecation and pleasure and the
owners of the stores and the
clerks are deserving of as much
recognition as au.vone else and
should be allowed to have this
short additional time to apply on
their rest time. The matter is one
worthy of consideration at. the
hands of the merchants and those
who attend to their shopping after
-upper and all should unite in
the movement to cut down the
bonis during the heated months
of July ami August, and as a re
sult there will be a general feeling
of belter understanding and good
fellowship between the merchants,
the clerks and the general public.
There seems a disposition on the
part of almost every one of the
business men of the cily to join in
the movement and enjoy an hour'
or so from the heal of the stoic
each day.

This morning distr ict court was

The news of the sudden death
of It. I), Hailey, one of the prom
inent residents of Klmwood, was
received in the cily today from
friends in that place. Mr. Hailey
was returning to his home on
Sunday evening and noticing the
approach ing storm hastened on
his way and the ov ei-exert ion
seems to have affected his heail.
as when he entered the door of
his home he fell to the lloor dead,
lie had been in apparently the
best of health in the morning, as
he had attended church and did
not complain in the east of any
illness and was in the best of
spirits and his sudden death came
as a great shock to the family and
many friends. Mr. Hailey was a
man of some r0 years of age ami
was very highly respected in his
home I own, where he had resided
for years, and his death will leave
a place hard lo fill in the cir cle of
liis' friends.

well tilled baskets of good things
to eat, and at about fi :.'( Ih.' jolly
crowd proceeded lo spread out a
feast of everv thing that the heart
of an epicuriau could possibly de

After the enjoyment of the dinner
the party spent several hours
most pleasantly in v isil ing among
