THE BIG CELEBRA
TION AT AVOCA WAS
Our neighbor village of Avoca
held a celebration on Thursday
evening-. July the busines men
b"ii:g the "im n behind the gun,"'
and it was held on that date in
order to uo interfere with any
other celebration on the Olorious
Fourth. This reporter knew
there was to be a grand good time,
and manage, l to escape the watch
ful eye of his physician and went
to Avoca instead of remaining- at
home on a sick-bed. making the
trip with F. II. McCarthy in his
auto, abnig with L. R. Upton and
A. L. Anderson, and got there in
lime to witness the opening of the
program at S p. m.
Arriving in the village we
found that several hundred peo
ple were already there and more
pouring- into town from all direc
tions, and rows of automobiles
anchored on all the side streets.
Y make the estimate that there
was at Past ;i.iiiin people present,
and of course the county candi
dates in large numbers are in
cluded in this estimate. The busi
ness houses and many residences
were appropriately decorated, and
the good citiens gave all visitors
to understand thai they were wel
come. Promptly at the hour of S the
sports were pulled, off on the
street, and were very interesting
and amusing, consisting of
various games and contests for
which prizes were awarded. Following-
lie sport program Hon.
Orlando 'IV in. chairman, mounted
Urn steps of the town hail, and in
his usual happy vein he in
troduced the speaker of the evening-,
(o'vernor John II. Morehead.
The goM i norwas at his best and
his voice was in good working
order, and for more than an hour
ho sp,,ke eloquently and discussed
topics that were of interest to the
I pie, dwelling- particularly upon
the excellent advantages offered
by the great stale of Nebraska l
every class of people who are dis
posed to grasp the opportunities
tor bettering- their condition. It
was an excellent address and free
frnn partisan polities. The
musical numbers were splendid,
the oiees ringing- out el ,.r in
perfect harmony that showed ex
cellent talent, as well as careful
preparation for the occasion. The
committee had aNo looked after
the instrumental music by having
employed the Elnr.vood and Syra
cuse bands, both being- on duty
and giving nice concerts during
the evening". A moving picture
show was one of the free attrac
tions, and late in the evening- a
dance at the hall afforded amuse
ment for "those who desired to
participate. The only disagree
able tiling- that occurred was a
disturbance that arose at the hall,
where some trouble arose that re
sutled in a bit of bloodshed, but
the management was in no way
responsible fop that outbreak.
Altogether it was a splendid
celebration, well managed by the
right kind of people who knew
how and have the will to work for
success, and we congratulate our
sistep village upon the success of
their efforts and thank the fit i
.ens for the courtesy shown us
while we were there. Union
