I AM YOUR FRIEND
Kill the De mori irear!
Fear has killed many laudable enterprises, lias
kept men from achieving success and even stood in the
way of progress.
The low prices of farm products arc paralyzing the
farm industry, and you arc looking for the "bogy man"
of bankruptcy, when you should be doing everything to
make for success. Prices will go higher, but even if
they do not, raise more from the acre and you are bound
to succeed. If your banker is afraid to loan you money
and you need machinery, we can carry you in that line.
Wc have arranged with the manufacturers to take your
paper for the goods which they furnish us. You do not
have to have money for machinery and implements.
Save it for other things. We can arrange for that.
Go ahead with the farm work and make the busi-
Sce us NOW.

EAGLES HALL FILLED SECOND
NIGHT TO ITS UTMOST
The second night of the American
Legion carnival saw the Kagles hall
filled to its utmost capacity with a
large and enthusiastic audience and
the fun and festivity reigned su
preme from the hour the doors open
ed until the last straggler had de
parted from the scene of the pleas
The booths all did a thriving busi
ness and the many articles and nov
elties offered for sale found ready
purchasers from the merrymakers
and the bevy of ladies who were
present in each of the booths was
kept busy in handing out the various
articles desired. "The Country Store"
was one of the main points of in
terest in the carnival and the leather-lunged
operatives of the stand
were kept more than busy in hand
ing out the prizes to the lucky ticket
holders in the various drawings.
The entertainment features of the
evening consisted of dancing, the
quartet and the "Kangaroo Court,"
and all of these served to amply
gratify the desire for pleasurable en
tertainment. The kangaroo court proved a very
novel means of entertainment and a
great many of the prominent resi
dents of the city were brought up to
be docketed on the blotter for sun
dry ami divers shortcomings ami the
charges brought many surprises and
not the least of these was the discov
ery on the person of K. II. YVescott
of a bottle of strange, dark looking
liquid that the court viewed with sus
picion and while the official test was
not made the prisoner had no chance
at acquittal but was given over to
the tender mercies of the bailiffs of
B. A. McKlwain. the jeweler was
another of the business men to be
snagged in the court and. charged
with aiding and abetting crime by
taking worthless checks and to this
charge he plead guilty and was sen
tenced to sing a song and also to buy
a flower and pin it on the handsom
est lady in the lull, but we have
failed to learn the name of the for
tunate lady. Judge Begley and
County Judge Beeson presided over
the court and were severe in their
reprimands of the various prisoners
brought before them for trial. Attor
neys C. A. Rawls and W. A. Robert
son were busy in prosecuting the var
This evening the Kord touring car
will be given away to the holder of
the lucky number and the public will
be allowed to suggest the method by
which the car is drawn, as the Legion
desires that all be satisfied with the
way the drawing is held. Also the
live baby is to be given away at
this time and someone is sure to be
the recipient of a gift that they will
long remember and enjoy.
ULATED ON STAND
Messages Pour In to McKelvie from
Moving Picture Producers and
Fans Veto Foretold.
It was announced at. the executive
offices in Lincoln yesterday that Gov
ernor McKelvie had received many
telegrams from citizens, moving pic
ture men and others congratulating
him upon his veto of the bill pro
viding for a board of censors. The
names of those who offered con
gratulations were not made public.
Several members of the legislature
said after the final, adjournment of
that body Thursday that they knew
the previous night when the bill
passed both houses that it would be
vetoed by the governor. This know
ledge was kept very quiet and was
not used in debate when the bill was
before the two houses. Senator Reed
of Hamilton told another member of
the legislature some time ago to
vote for the Beebe substitute for the
censorship bill "and get something."
"Remember what I said two weeks
from now." said Senator Reed at the
close of this cryptic statement to his
fellow law maker. His remark was
intended to inform his colleague that
no censorship bill could become a
law, but that some legislation along
the line of regulation, such as the
Beebe bill, could be had at this ses
sion. A big apple without a core is the
item in general appropriation bill
setting aside all fees that may come
in under the movie censorship bill
for the use of the attorney general
in administering that law. This ap
propriation had been estimated at
$ ISO. 000 a year, being on a basis of
$2 a year for each reel shown in
Nebraska. Governor McKelvie vetoed
the movie bill so no fees will come
rolling in upon the attorney general.
The appropriation item still stands
in H. R. filM, hut it is ineffective be
cause of the vetoing of the censor
ship bill which authorises the col
lection of such fees.
