WILL TEACH THE AMERICAN
LANGUAGE AND CITIZENSHIP
TO THOSE NOT CITIZENS.
AMERICANISM If) EVERYTHING
That is the Slogan Which JIust In
spire All to the Utmost
From Friday's Iaily.
Arrangements have been about
completed for the opening in the
near future of a iii.ht school, for
the teaching cf distinctly, the
American language, and American
civic law, which will enable all who
are not American citizens to under
stand what Americanism means. To
the candidates for American citizen
ship, it is required that they shall
understand the laws and institu
tions under which they elect to live,
and be able to speak and writ the
American language. The Hoard cf
Education and the superintendent of
the city schools, have evinced their
readiness to take hold cf the mat
ter in a way which is insuring its
success from the beginning. Had
the idea of American citizenship in
its 'full sense been inculcated, in
stead of some one desiring to hire
some one because he could speak
s :ne other language, in order to se
cure that portion of that trade,
thirds would have been different
when the time came for the mak
ing of Americans out of thrsse who
proWbly did not understand it to

AN OPPORTUNITY TO
IMPROVE YOUR HOGS
JUST AS WELL HAVE GOOD HOGS
AS BAD ONES YOU FF.D YOUR
HOGS GOOD CORN.
From Friday's Pallv.
Why farmers continue to raise
scrub hogs, when they eat as much
good corn, and do not produce as
much flesh as a good breed is a
question which is hard to under
stand. Good hogs cost good money,
and are worth it. No one would ex
pect to get something for nothing,
and those who look for such, will
surely be disappointed.
The opportunity is here now for
the farmers to get good hogs, and
ones which are safe. Hirtz, Rum
mcll and Schaeffer, will hold a sale
of fine Duroc Jersey Reds, fifty male
hogs age for service at the botn of
Henry Hirz, 6 miles west, Oct. ICth,
sale commencing at one o'clock
sharp. Col. W. R. Young will con
duct the sale, while Geo. O. Dovey
will act as clerk. This is an op
portunity to get immune made hogs
which acclimated, and are known
to be in a healthy condition. Remem
ber the time and date and improve
your hogs, you will save money, and

E THAN A
THE QUOTA FOR THIS COUNTY
FOR THE FOURTH DRIVE IS
TO BE $1,250,500.
GOOD TIE TO 60 OVER TO!
The Nebraska and American Spirit
Is To Do the Thins Whole
From Friday's Daily.
With the call for $1, 250. S00,
which is two times that of the
Third Liberty loan, it makes the
blood tingle, and the nerves quiver
as the muscles harden for the
dash, of a few days to win, by sub
scribing for more than we are asked
for. Wc should more easily go over
the top this .time, than at the other
calls. At this time we have more
friends on the other side, we have
more son? there, we have more
brothers there, more sweethearts
there, and mere to go. Sure we can
see the way clear to subscribe to
the limit if necessary. Not taking
into the consideration that the buy
ing of the bonds is an excellent busi
ness proposition, we should get af
ter it as a patriotic proposition, and
for the sake of our love for the boys
who are not spending alone their
times, ft r they have thrown away
the good position for the $.10.00 per
month while we are getting many
times that amount". Do we want to
be fair, or do we want to be slack
ers, if not we must get after the
amount and do it at this time, with
a will and energy which wlil win.
Remember that this county is to
furnish one million two hundred
and fifty thousand, and five hund

MADE AN ELOQUENT PLEA.
From Saturday's Pally
Last evening at the speaking at
the commercial club advertisement
of the Liberty Loan drive, at which
Lieut. Herold Baldwin, gave the ad
dress, Mrs. Frank Dunbar made an
address with more pep and good
common sense in it than we have
heard for many a day.
Mrs. Dunbar whose whole soul
and energies are wrapped up in the
winning of the war and alleviating
the conditions of those who are in
jured thereby; made an appeal for
the purchase of bonds and thereby
helping in the winning of this
struggle for humanity. If four min
ute addresses were like the one last
night filled with enthusiasm and
earnestness coupled with concrete
facts stated in a way they would ap
peal to the hearers, they would be
a means of a great education, and
stirring cf interest in the things
pertinent to the winning of the
HAD ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING.

IIEUT. BALDWIN, WHO SPOKE
LAST EVENING VERY ENTER
From Saturday's' Daily.
To a house not so well filled last
evening and cue not so responsive
as it might have been to the address
which he made, Lieut. Baldwin
spoke for nearly two hours, telling
of the things, which have happen
ed and are happening in the battle
fields of France and Flanders. His
appeal to the people, to support this
war, and the boy3 who are lighting
was to the parent and one which
should be a strong motive for the
going over the top in the drive for
the bonds which begins at an early
date. The story of his experience,
began when he was fanning in Sas
katchewan, and told how he at last
arrived in England and then in
France. He desired to say that of
the soldiers who first went to France
from Canada, the larger per cent
were English born and that when
Canada had struck, it was a stroke
Speaking of the runners, who
were for carrying of messages when
the telephone and telegraph lines
were down during the battle, he
says with fire from every company
in the division, at the beginning of
a certain battle in which he was
one, at the end there were only
seven in all.
The address was well received,
and thanks are due to the commer
cial club, for the evening's enter
tainment, and the advertising of the
Fourth Liberty Loan.
