remark that they would like to donate
something to the relief of the surfer-
Belgians. If someone, with time
and inclination, could be found, a car

offering. This is a worthy cause of

Presented With a Gold Lavaliere.
The teacher and pupils of district
No. presented Miss Ellie Smith
with a gold Lavaliere as a token of
the high esteem in which she is held
by her teacher and schoolmates. Miss
Efile was sick at the time the present
was given and her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Jake Smith, responded by invit
ing the school over to dinner on Fri
day. A bountiful repast was served,
to which everyone did ample' justice.
At 1 o'clock, when the children
started back to school- they voted Mrs.
Smith "second to none" when it comes
to serving good dinners. This means
the removal from our community of
another excellent family in the near
future as they contemplate moving to
Minnesota in January. This little
event will long be remembered by the
school children, who certainly appre
ciate the many kindnesses shown them

METHODIST SUNDAY SCHOOL
ARRANGING A FINE ENTER
TAINMENT CHRISTMAS EVE
From Tuesday's I'allv.
The Methodist Sunday school in this
city is arranging for an entertainment
in-honor of Christmas at the church
on Christmas eve, Thursday, Decem
ber 24th, and as the enter tainments of
'he school are always a splendid suc
cess, this one is being looked forward
to with the greatest of pleasure by
the little folks of the school. Santa
Claus will be present at the entertain
ment and distribute to the little folks
all manner of treats, and in this it
may be remarked that any children
not attending Sunday school in other
churches are invited to lie present to
take part in the entertainment of the
evening and to re.eive their remem
brance of the blessed Christmas day.
The entertainment of the evening,
aside from the welcome visit of Santa,
will be a short, Christmas cantatta,
for which the little ones have been
training for some time, and which
gives the promise of being one of the
most pleasing that has been given
there for year s. This Sunday school
has a very large membership and the
work of arranging for the Christmas
festivities is quite a task, but the
teachers ami pupils have taken up
their work in good shape and a most
enjoyable time is anticipated, and the
parents and friends are invited to be
present and take part in the pleas
ures of the evening. The entertain
ment will be held in the main audit
orium of the church.
K. S. Mask Ball.
Now is the time to prepare for the
big K. S. mask ball, that will be given
next, month. Watch for further particulars.

WIFE DESERTERS SHOULD
RECEIVE PUNISHMENT TO
FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW
There has been
plaint of late from several quarters of
the number of cases of wife and child
desertion in the city, where the head
of the household has "lit out" and
neglected to make provision for the
care of his wife and children, and
making it necessary for the county to
come to their assistance in ord?r to
prevent them from suffering for the
wrongs of another. There is certainly
nothing more heartless than the man
who leaves his children and his wife,
to whom he has taken an oath to love
and cherish, to get along as best they
can, while he goes on his way regard
less of the condition they may be in,
without the real necessities of life,
while he goes on well satisfied with
himself, his offspring are without
proper clothing or food to keep them
more than alive in this cold winter
weather, and they are without any
heat or provisions to give warmth
from the elements.
The laws of Nebraska are very
stringent in their ounishment of the
wife and child deser ter, and those who
attempt to run away from their sworn
luty as the protectors of their house
hold will find that they are inviting a
prison sentence as a reward for their
conduct, and the county attorney will
soon take some steps to see what can
be done along the line of bringing
some of these cases to the bar of
justice to see whether or not there
cannot be something done with this
.lass of offenders whose greatest
wrong is to those that should be the
nearest and dearest to them in every
There has been several cases of this
kind and it is time that some check
was placed upon the practice, which
is certain to result not only in added
burden to the taxpayers of the coun
ty, but in the ruining of homes and
the blasting of lives of those who are
innocent of any wrong-dcing, but are
maue the victims of the misconduct of
others. A move in this direction cer
airdy ought to have the cordial sup
port and approval of every law abid
ing citizen in the county who in any
way believes in having the statutes of
Nebraska enforced and the wives and
?hildren of these men given some
means of protection.

feminine heart, and in searching for
a seasonable gift for mother, wife,

fitted up in a beautiful manner that

It seems that this season's "Mutt

but the real essanee of true amuse

There's coatchy, whisteable music, a
laugh to every breath, a song hit or
an entrancing dance ntmber when

excessive laughter, and a bunch of
exceedingly pretty girls to give the
whole thing zest. There you have
"In Mexico." To say it is a hit is put
ting it altogether too mildly. It's a
riot! With gorgeous scenic and light
effects and a magnificent change of
costumes for every one of the twenty
or more song and dance numbers. Af
ter all, it resolves itself into a "rip
roaring" side-spliting comedy such as
you would expect after seeing the

are still as popular with the readers
