Will Organize a County Association.
R. C. Pollard, the breeder of Hamp
shire hogs, and who has made a great
success in this line, has in hand the
idea of getting all breeders of pure
bred hogs together in a norganiza
tion and for the forming of such
will in the near future call a meet
ing at Nehawka. All who are breed
ers of pure bred hogs, of whatever
strain or variety, are expected to be
in attendance and become members
cf the association. The meetings
will be held monthly after the or
ganization, and the places of meeting
will be at the various farms of the
members, in order that the other
members may study the methods and
thus all get the best of the points of
the other fellow, thus improving all
in their manner of handling the hogs
to obtain the best results.

CRITICISM THAT IS
FAR FROM DESERVED
Some Residents of City Take Occasion
to Apply Hammer to Fire Depart
ment When Not Deserved.
It has often occurred to many of
the residents of the city, who are fa
miliar with the conditions under
which the fire department has oper
ated, that the valiant little group
-who yield the hammer with vim and
vigor on every occasion that the de-
department is called out, should lay
up this weapon and retire to soli
tude where they can, in their own
minds, debate the question whether
or not the criticism that they have
made is justified.
The volunteer fire department is
an organization of citizens who have
assumed an obligation to do all pos
sible, not only of their own proper
ty, but that of everyone in the city
and there has not been an occasion
in vears that the members of the
department have failed to do their
full duty and at personal sacrifices.
There are occasions, it is true.
after a fire when everyone can rea
lize that there were some small mat
ters that might have been handled
different but in a large majority of
cases the department has done its full
duty to save all possible loss from
fire or water.
At the fire on Wednesday morning
a great many complained that the
whistle at the shops was not blown
more promptly and finding fault with
the methods of giving the alarm al
though it was the most successful yet
used, and others stated that the de
partment was not at the fire until
after the whistle was blown when in
fact the truck was at the scene and
in action before the shop whistle
was blown, due to the practical sys
tem of calling the firemen.
FOR HIS HOME TOWN
J. A. Gardner of the Eagle Bea
con. is a man of himself, and un
like the others, when he sees his
way clear, he goes after a proposi
tion, whether the others do or not.
He has just been instrumental in
having a band organized for his
home town of Eagle, of which he
is president, and is encouraging the
young folks in a musical education
as well as providing a source of en
tertainment for the city when oc
casion requires. He has also at his
own expense, provided a station of
the state circulating library, secur
ing a large number of volumes from
the state library at Lincoln, which
are shipped to and from Eagle by
freight, he paying the charges there
on. Anvone can have a volume for
two weeks without any charge, and
after that time will be charged at
the rate of a penny per day for their
non-return. Mr. Gardner is surely
doing the proper thing in this re
spect by the community, wherein he
has chosen to make his home.

Why Colds are Dangerous
It is the seriom; diseases that colds
lead to that makes then dangerous.
They prepare the sy.-tem for the re
ception and development of the
germs of influenza, pneumonia, tu

whooping cough and m'-asles. You
are much more likely to contract
these diseases when you hive a
cold. Foi that reasem you should
get rid of every cold as quickly as
possible. Chamberlain's Cough Rem

as a cure for bad colds.
