ADDITIONAL DUTIES OF
From Friday's Daily.
.Now is the time for the assessor to
collect an itemized statement from
each real Nebraska taxpayer.
Among the duties imposed on such of
ficials in addition to statements of
taxation, is that of gathering the data
from each Civil and Spanish war sol
dier and the gathering of agricultural
and farm labor statistic?. Remember
that upon the fidelity of the a e. so.
to fully and completely gather and
compile these statistics deper.
- . . r x-i !
iair nairie oi -eura.-,K.a as an agri
cultural state. If the assessor neg
lects this duty, the products of the
farm are a sweet morsel for speculat
ors to gamble on, and they fix the
amount of products to line their
pockets at the farmers e:r-er ;e. If
all assessors wouid realize that an
actual truthful statement from them
would do more to create a standard
price for farm products than any
other thing bearing on price .-ave pro
duction, they would be very cartful to
secure complete detail in every way
possible. Mr. Assessor, will you try
to do this for 1015?
If it's anything in the lire cf paper,
or office supply line, call at the Jour
nal office, where most everything in
the paper line can be found.

DELIGHTFUL SOCIAL AT
THE METHODIST CHURCH
IN MYNARO LAST NIGHT
From .Saturdays Pa II v.
Last evening tne members of the
congregation of the Methodist church
at Mynard enjoyed a most delightful
time at a sock social given at the
church, and as a result of their efforts
a neat little sum was netted for them
that will be applied in the work of the
organization. Each one was requested
to place twice as many pennies as the
size of the sock they wore, in the sock,
and this was to provide the sock feat
ure of the gathering. A very pleas
ing program had been arranged for,
which included solos, ducts and quar
tets, all of which were very much en
joyed, and the parties contributing to
this part of the program were given
hearty encores. A very pleasing read
ing warn given by Mrs. Randall, wife of
the pastor of the church, which was
also gieatly enjoyed a?id proved a
valuable audition to the program.
Short talks along the line of Sunday
rchool woik were given by W. T.

and Jesse Perry, who were present
from the church at Piattsmcuth. Grant

was most gratifying to every member

thi program at the church the party

where most delicious and tempting re-
freshments were served, which came

hospital for treatment. This is quite
a sad case, as the patient is a young

been a most estimable and genial
gentleman until starting on the down

hoped that he will secure a cure of his
affliction at the hospital and return to
assume the place he should in the life

EAGLE REMAINS IN "WET"
I'i'G REPORT OTHERWISE
From Saturday's T"an
We note from the Eagle Deacon of
this week the fact that the report on
the election there resulting in a vic
tory for the drys was without founda
tion, and the information supplied to
the Journal in regard to the election
there was decidedly "phoney" and did
not bear out the rtatcments made. The
Beacon states that as far as known
Eagle will remain decidedly wet dur
ing the coming year, unless the mem
bers of the board flop over on the
question, as they are in favor of the
maintenance of the. saloons at that
place. The supposed facts as reported
here came from sources that seemed
most reliable, and for this reason it
was taken that the parties giving
them out knew what they were talk
BIRDS STILL EFFECTIVE
From Friday's Pal! jr.
Many of the press comments on the
decision of the United States district
court, rendered March 20. at Topeka,
Kansas, holding that the federal
migratory bird law is unconstitutional,
according to the United States de
partment of agriculture, are erroneous
and are apt to mislead the public con
cerning the real situation in this
The Kansas decision to the same
effect in the eastern district of Arkan
sas, is limited in its operation solely
to the district in which it was render
ed. Neither decision settles or nul
lifies the law, and the exact contrary
has been held by the United States
district court for South Dakota. The
Arkansas case has been appealed to,
rnd is now pending, in the United
States supreme court. The act of con
gress protecting migratory birds
stands effective until the supreme
court ccc.cte.s tr.e question ot its con
stitutionality. In the meantime, it is
incumbent on every law-abiding citizen
io observe its provisions and the regu
lations. It is the duty of the depart
ment of agriculture to enforce this
lav.- and the officials in charge will en
ceavor to do so as long as it is in
force. Reports of violations will be
carefuliy investigated and when suf
ficient evidence is secured they will be
reported for prosecution. In this con
nection it should not be forgotten thrt

f other United States laws, is subject

Yesterday afternoon at the Wire
Memorial hospital in Omaha Mr.-.
Arthur Keffler was operated on in
order to give her relief from an af
fliction from which fhe has been suf
fering for some time. The operation
has apparently been successful, al
though the patient is still very weak
from the effects of the operation, and
it will be a few days before she will
be out of danger. Her mother, Mrs.
J. II. Thrasher, of this city, is at
the hospital with her.
Mrs. L. II. Heil was operated on a
few days ago at Immanuel hospital
in Omaha for appendicitis and is re

was in the nature of a miscellaneous
shower and the bride-to-be was show

casion that will be most useful to her

a most delicious luncheon was served,
which added greatly to the pleasure
of the ocasion, and the guests in de
parting wished Miss Ellen many years

FORMER CITIZEN OF CASS
COUNTY, DIES AT O'NEIL
From Friday's Dan v.
The news has been received in this
city of the death at O'Neil, Nebraska,
of Joseph McBroom, a former resident
of this county, who passed away last
Saturday at his home in that city,
Mr. McBroom will be well remember-
ed by a large number of the residents
of near Rock Bluffs, where he made
his home during his residence in this
county. He was about f0 years of age
and a native of Illinois, coming to Xe-
braska when a young man and locating
near Rock Bluffs, in this county, en-
iged in farming for a number of
ycars, and some twenty-five years ago
removed from this county to O'Neil,
where he has since made his home. The
old friends here will greatly regret to
i e u- i ,l l. . ,
learn of his death, as he was a gentle-
man who possessed many warm
friends among those who knew him
best. He was a cousin of J. M. Young
of this city.
