when ycu call and see my stock. The
room directly opposite the new bank
has been secured and put into condi
tion and will be open to the public
every afternoon and Wednesday and
Saturday evenings. I have priced my

fer you exceptional values as a result.

FOUR YEARS BUILD-
IHG A FOUNDATION
From Tuesdays L'ailv.
To the Voters of Cass County:
The work of the assessor is net only
a lounaation ior treasurer, it is a
foundation for the clerks, a foundation
for all the revenue that runs the coun
ty. The tax list of both the personal
and real estate are taken from the as-
sessor's books, also the school levy,
read and state lew. Therefore, the
assessor's work must be accurate.
Some of the things that he must do
m. , ,
re: mere are- lony-seven dooks.
nese you musi arrange their names
in alphabetical order with all their
personal property. This you balance,
giving the amount of monev with the
lumber of stock and machinery of all
kinds. Twenty-three books of real es
tate that you balance in like manner,
one book in which Ave put the number
and age cf all the horses, mules and
cattle. These books are all balanced
cenarateiv wnicn is tne lirst recap,
and then they are all balanced togeth-
cr, making the second recap, or the
.-um total. Then you make an abstract
lo be sent to Lincoln. In that you
have the amount of all the personal
and real estate and the number of all
the horses, mules, cattle, hogs, sheep,
:.utos: threshinir machines and all
other machines, dogs, chickens and
geese. Not onlv the number but the
average price of everything, also the
number of bushels of wheat, corn and
oat-, with the price. In aduiuon to
ihe rbove we have sixteen agricultural
books and ail the railroads terminals
to write up, and many other things.
I have built the foundation and think
I am capable of being treasurer.

FINE PICTURE OF
THE AUBURN HI8H
From Wednesday's Daily.
In the window of the store of
Warga & Schuluice appears a very
handsome water color picture of the
high school at Auburn, Nebraska, and
after which it is probable that the
ere will be modeled if
tne voters deeiue that they are desir-
i ous of securing a new building for the!
r.urnoses or educating tne ooys anu
girls in. This building will cost Au
burn 50.000 and is about the best
building of its kind in the state erect
ed for this sum of money. It is ex
pected if the new building is erected
that it can accommodate the high
school as well as the seventh and
eighth gravies and relieve the crowded
conditions both in th high school and
the grades. The board of education
has also deckled that the bonds to be
submitted to the voters this year will
be made twenty year bonds instead of
thirty as had first been intended and
this will be found much more satis
factory to the general run of taxpay
ers and if it were possible the time of
the bonds would be made shorter but
' this would work a hrad&hip on the cit
: izens that can be avoided by placing
j them at twenty years.
