Many farmers have been deliver

schools. By the way this is a pretty
good time to have your car overhaul

of good roads and motoring weather.

The Nehawka Auditorium
The entertainment of Nehawka
people has not been neglected, being
well taken care of with the erection
of the auditorium, which serves as
a play house, lodge room and assem
ply hall to which citizens may point
with pardonable pride. The build
ing is large and spacious and excels
those in towns several times the size
of ours. Nor is interest lacking In
Its improvement and upkeep. Satur
day night there was given a screen
performance of that delightful com
edy "Oh Boy," which was largely
attended, and the proceeds of which
will be used as a maintenance fund
to keep the building from ever be
coming delapidated through neglect.
It is one thing to have Interest in
getting something and another to
retain Interest In Its upkeep, and we
are glad to Ray Nehawka citizens
show healthy evidence of both these
Nehawka Consolidated Schools
The matter of consolidated schools
was tried out in Nehawka long be
fore this Bcheme became popular
over the country, in fact so long be
fore that this town deserves the
honors of pioneering as it was one
of the first places where consolida
tion was put into effect. So suc
cessful has it proven that now it Is
becoming general over the whole
country. Nehawka schools have long
enjoyed the reputation of being in
a class by themselves and have at
tracted pupils from a considerable
territory outside the district. From
them there have been sent out into
the world many young men and
women equipped for the battles of
life. There is a large enrollment at
the present time and two "Carry-all"
autos are being operated to convey
the rural scholars to and from their
studies. John Kettlehut and Clar
ence Kropp are the drivers, and they
make the rounds in the morning
gathering up the children and set
them down at their homes again In

Mr. F. A. Boedeker being capable
accountants. They welcome all to
call upon them for such assistance
as may be needed In this line.
Solving the Fuel Problem
The matter of fuel is being solved
by a number of people of this vicin
ity who have availed themselves of
the offer of people have timber land,
of clearing same and burning the
brush for the wood they get. In ad
dition many loads of stove wood
have been hauled to town and han
dled commercially, being disposed of
at $4.50 per load, which makes It
fully as cheap as coal and much more
agreeable to handle.
Mrs. Houston Much Better
Mrs. H. E. Houston, who has been
at the hospital in Lincoln for some
time following an operation for ap
pendicitis, has so far recovered as to
be able to return to her home here

greatly pleased to know of her convalescence.
Masons are Active
The Masonic lodge has been un
usually active of late, having work
in the Fellow Craft and Entered
Apprentice degrees during the past
fortnight, three candidates receiving
instruction in the former and one
In the latter. On Wednesday night,
February 2nd a number of candidates
were raised to the Master Mason de

Nehawka Couple Married Near Eock
Bluffs in Winter of 1871, Has
lived in State Since.
Last Tuesday at their home in
Nehawka. where they have resided
for the past few years, Mr. and Mrs.
Z. W. Shrader were assisted by
friends in a fitting observance of
their fiftieth wedding anniversary.
The affair was in the nature of a
surprise by their friends and rela
tives and as such proved a success,
although Mr. and Mrs. Shrader had
read the handwriting on the wall
and knew by the signs of the times
what to expect.
The home was accordingly in per
fect order when friends began to ar
rive in the morning. The day prov
ed fine with the exception of the
roads being in bad shape for travel.
Mr. Shrader was born on Decem

made their home In Nebraska and
Cass county ever since. During the
greater part of their lives, they have
been engaged in farming, and have
made a success of tilling the soil.
In the more than half a century
they have resided in Cans county,
andy have made a host of friends
who have rejoiced in their prosper

of the community, their children be

Gracie Rhoden and R. M. Shrader,

pleasant time was had.
The Knights are Active
The Knights of Pythias lodge, like
the Masons, are doing much work
at the present time, and are adding
a number of new members. At their
meeting last week they had a class
of three upon whom the work war
conferred and the mysteries exempli
fied. After the lodge session, there
was served a sumptuous feast, to
which all did full Justice. Those up
on whom the degrees were conferred
and who became Sir Knights were
J. M. Sturm, Earl Chappel and Gale
A. Sturm, all excellent young men
of the community.

at the home of her parents. J. G.

R. C." Pollard departed last Tues
day for the western part of the state,
where he spent the remainder of the
week, atending two Hampshire pure
bred hog sales. Mr. Pollard is a
breeder of the finest strains of Hamp
shire hogs, and the number of his
sales attest the fact, especially where
the price runs into hundreds of
dollars for a single animal. It costs
less to feed a good hog than an in
ferior one, and invariably is pro
ductive of greater return.
The Income Tax Question
The Income tax matter is one that
is somewhat puzzling unless one has
a pretty good insight into business
and the ways of doing it. The banks
are lending valuable assistance in
the compiling of reports and elimi
nating the questions that tax the
ordinary man. The Nehawka Bank
is exceptionally well equipped to
