HAS GOOD ADVERTISING STUNT
From Tuesday's Daily.
The Farmers State Bank has a
clever advertising stunt, in front o
its place of business, in the fact
that they have a semaphore erected
and the arms extending in opposite
directions, on across the walk anil
the other across the street, each say
ing stop. This arrests the attention
of the passerby, and" on the staff
which holds the arms is the words
on a white staff, letters in blue
"Buy a Liberty Bond." A very clev
er idea, and should challenge every
one's attention to the Liberty Bonds
This is a time when every effort
should be put forth for the utmost
sale of these bonds, as the resource
of the country are taxed now as
never before. We have had an offer
by the disturbing nations of the
world, saying, "Let us have peace,"
when the- done damage to the ut
most, and have destroyed every na
tion and works possible, the answer
will be. Force to the utmost, and
Monev without stint.

From Monday's Dally.

fortune yesterday while attempting

a nail therein, to have the piece
turn, and caused the nail to pierce
his hand in such a way that the nail
went entirely through the fleshy
portion of the member, and he is
now taking an enforced layoff from
his duties until the hand shall have
gotten well again.
"DICK" RIVETT IN TOWN.
From Monday's Daily.

quarters in Chicago, but makes hi.-
home somewhere in Indiana. He i

afternoon for Omaha.
SHORT SESSION OF W. C.
Last night was the regular meet
ing date of the Woodmen Circle, at
which time two new members wer
taken into the order. The attend
ance was very good, and although
brief, a very interesting meeting wa
held, but cut short owing to the re
cent and present Spanish "flu" scare
in the city at the present time. The
members greatly missed their Guard
ian, Mrs. M. E. Manspeaker, who on
the account of illness was unable to
attend, and the members present
were unanimous in extending sym
pathy fori their more unfortunate
sister and leader whose absence i
always keenly felt by all members
of the order.

AT MEETING THE CASS COUNTY
CHAPTER SELECT OFFICERS
TOR THE COMING YEAR.
F'orn Monday's Dally
The meeting of the Cass County
Chapter of the American Red Cross.,
which was held at the court house
last Friday was well attended, and
at the meeting they elected officers
for the coining year. The reports
furnished by the retiring officers
showed a. large amount of work
done, for which the people of this
county should feel justly proud. In
turning the work over to those who
are to assume charge, the oflicers
and all who were connected in any
way with the work done this year,
can look upon their work as being
well worth while, and the one con
siders the vast amount they have
accomplished, they are almost baff
led in believing it. In turning the
affairs over to the ntw officers they
feel sure that the same earnest ef
fort will he put into the work, and
that the work will go ahead as well
as heretofore. Those retiring will
have a personal interest in doing
their best for 'the Red Cross. Those

book with $85.00 therein, made the
purchase and thinking he had plac
ed his pocketbook in his pocket, he
went and got on the train, when in
came the young man whom he had
eaten his breakfast with, asking
him if he had lost anything. Mr.
Henderson assured him that noth
ing was missing. When asked about
his pocket book, he found it gone.
He had allowed it to slip on the
floor, instead of into his pocket.
The young man handed the book
to Mr. Henderson, who promptly
gave the young man a five dollar
