The Joliet Cylinder Corn Shellers possess all the advantages of other cyl
inder corn shellers and are free from their defects.
They do not require z, man to stand behind them in the dust to keep back
the unshelled ears of corn.
In fact, thecs shellers are as nearly automatic as any machines can be that
require adjustment for different kinds of work.
We have these shellers in stock. Come in and look them over.

A Merry Christmas to everyone.
The "lost bafallion" is growing
smaller daily.
The club rooms will be ready for
partial occupation next week.
Thirty-nlno have paid up for 1921
and ten new ones have signed on the
dotted line, to date.
We can't get 'em all out of the
trenches (of unpaid dues) by Christ
mas, but we're doing our derndest.
Comrade Wohlfarth promises to
have the bulletin board ready soon,
and when he does we will endeavor
to 'keep it supplied with live infor
mation for the buddies.
"Nebraska First at K. C. 1921"
is our watchword. Rut. it is one
that must be lived up to as well as
sung. Let's continue to keep the
Legion in the front ranks.
Home wasn't built in a day, and
neither was the American Legion
brought into existence that rapidly.
Hut for completeness of the finished
job it can well contest for honors
with the builders of that famous
ancient city.
The collection of 1921 dues is no
small task and the work can be
greatly facilitated if the members
will come forward promptly. Tho
adjutant can be found any evening
at his home in the front apartments
over Wurl's store.
Much outside interest is being
evidenced in the Legion and numer
ous of our enterprising citizens are
coming to the front with offers of
substantial donations toward the
further outfitting of our new club
rooms. This spirit of co-operation is
greatly appreciated by the officers
and members.
There will be no nicer or more
convenient lounging room in the city
than ours when the finishing touches
have all been applied. Still the dues
are kept low (so all may belong) and
we will endeavor through post ac
tivities to keep the post treasurer
supplied with funds to meet the op
erating expenses.
Comrades may pay dues to any of
the following: Will Shopp, Henry
Lutz, Frank Palecek. Harvey Ileue
ger. Erail Hild, Aubrey Duxbury,
Frank Smith, Leslie Niel. Dr. Cald
well. Dr. Westover. John Hadraba.
A. A. Stilger, John Palecek, George
Conis, Kd Fullerton or Carl Wohl
farth. Don't be u January 1st delin
quent. Some of the comrades evidently
took us at our word, at least that
part about the snowballs, for one
halted us on the street the oilier day
with a large hard-packed one. Pan
he came forward promptly and paid
his dues, so we forgave hint for the
snowballing and promised not to re
port him as eligible for K. P.
The post has secured some moving
picture film distributed through the
War Work Council of the Y. M. C.
A., together with a Hillis illustrated
lecture of the "Uetter America"
series, which will be shown at a
special meeting next Thursday night,
at the? Parmele theatre following
their regular Bhow. The early part
of the meeting will be held in the
new club rooms, where athletic con
tests, a smoker and general good time
will be indulged in.
From Here On Out!
XM AS over, the thots of a New Year up
on us, and everybody happy.
Lets get down to business.
The Peak of the High Prices is reached
and we've started down the other side the
side with livable conditions at the bottom.
The coming year will see more things act
ually done, in the way of price adjustments
than all the talk of the past three years, of
"LOWER" price.
This is adjustment week with us. We
discontinue the discount and are mark
ing everything in our store, not as to cost,
but according to what the ariicle is worth,
or what it can be bot for at this time.
There are many warm things you need
now don't wait longer, prices will be at
pre-war basis in this shop, and will not be
cheaper in the Spring or next Fall.

While America no doubt owes a
great deal of her growth and pros
perity to "foreign blood" there is
such a thing as running a "good
thing into the ground."
The question of immigration is go
ing to be one of the most troublesome
, questions with which congress will
I have to contend at this session.
' There is such a diversity of opinion
upon the subject that it is going to
be hard to frame a law will suit
all sections in; fact it is one of the
thingj that cannot be done, so the
old maxim of the "greatest good for
the greatest number" should prevail.
With unsettled conditions existing
both in this country and in Europe,
the matter of immigration should be
handled with particular caution. Ev
ery day brings Information of the
laying off or thousands of workmen
or the reduction of wages, and Amer
ica's army of unemployed is constant
ly on the increase. To add to this
time the coming of thousands of
foreigners, unlearned in the ways of
this country and sparccly endowed
with worldly goods, would be to in
vite disaster.
The point is made that to bar im
migration would be to the disad
vantage of the agricultural element
of this country. The New York
Herald says "congress cannot sus
pend Immigration either through a
temporary or permanent exclusion
rneisure without cutting the ground
from under American agriculture.
Congress cannot embarrass, hinder
and cripple the American fa'-niT
without- delivering a body blow
against the American public."
Continuing the Herald says: "The
American farmer cannot produce pro
fitable crops to sell at a reasonable
price unless he can get labor that
will work at reasonable wages. He
will not try. American labor will
not work on the farms at any price.
Even alien labor which has been long
enough in th isrountry to e lu'-ed
away from the farm and day labor
to industrial jobs at short hours and
easy money will not work on the
farm at anything but top wages.
"The American farmer's only
chance to get the tabor which is im-
! peratively required to raise abundant
crops, at a reasonable cost, is through
the nation's immigration gateway."
All of which sounds mighty good
and would be put unfortunately, as
the Herald admits , itself, these la
borers will not stay 'on the farm any
longer than they get Jobs at better
wages and shorter hours. Carried
to its logical conclusion, therefore,
it would mean that the flood gates
should be left open for a steady
stream of European paupers to pour
What Money Cannot Buy
That is something; which lasts through the
year and increases rather than decreases.
