The school has no stated visiting

welcome at all hours of the day. Par
ticularly do we desire to have those
parents who have a grievance come

much more rapidly to the Btate where
we all desire it to be, if we work to
gether with full understanding.

will be played with the Eagle high
school, September 16.
NOTICE TO POLICY HOLDERS
At a meeting of the Board of Di
rectors of the Platte Mutual Insur
ance company last evening, . a new
business policy was adopted, where
by in the future the amount of any
one riBk shall not exceed $1,500. and
in the business district not closer
than every other place of business.
Under tthjose conditions it was con
sidered -that Mutual insurance can
prosper and give good protection
without making assessments. The
Platte Mutual has been writing in
surance in this city for the past
twenty-five years and during all that
time had only one assessment, not
withstanding the rate for insurance
was about half that of the Old Line
companies; hence the patrons of the
local company have saved largely on
cost of their Insurance.
It is a home company and all the
money paid for insurance is kept at
home and deserves the patronage of
everyone who is interested in seeing
the company prosper. Boost.

WELL PLEASED WITH THE
WAY IT WAS CONDUCTED
In these early days of boxint; un
der the new state law, when ninny of
the shows over the state, including
Omaha, are failing to meet with the
approval of the Department of PuWic
Weliare, in whose hands is p'aced
the supervisory power," it is highly
gratifying to the American Legion
committee having charge of Wednes
day night's show here, to receive the
following communication from Mr.
Lewis R. Doyle, state boxing com
missioner, who occupied a ringside
seat at the show, and had ample op
portunity to observe how it was con
ducted: "Allow me to take this means of
congratulating you upon the excel
lent way in which you conducted the
bout. I appreciate how many de
tails there are to be attended to in
putting on an athletic show, and it
was very gratifying to the depart
ment to see the excellent way in
which you took care of them.
"I know you will not be discour
aged by the financial outcome. It
was a great advertisement which will
pay for itself in your exhibitions of
the future. Let us know when we
can help you."
MUSICAL MERRY MAKERS
COMING TUESDAY NIGHT
STILL FEELING POORLY
Mrs. Fred Wagner is still feeling
very poorly as the result of her sick
ness of the past two weeks and has
been compelled to remain confined to
her room at the hotel. Mrs. Wagner
was apparently some better and had
been able to sit tip a short time, but'
suffered a relapse and has not been
as well since that time.
The appearance in this city on
Tuesday evening of the Musical
Merry Makers, who are to play at
the dance to be given at the Eagles
hall on that date, affords the lovers
of dancing and music a rare treat.
The members of this organization
have touched the heart of melody
with their manner of playing and
their rendition of the jazzy dancing
numbers has won them a lasting
fame. The membership of the or
chestra speaks for itself P. E. Pere
grine, clarinet and saxophone; R.
W. Knolla. piano and violin; J. J.
Weresh. trombone and saxophone;
A. K. Mack, banjo and piano; R. II.
Cox, drums and traps.
ROAD PROMOTERS FAIL TO
RAISE COIN; CHANGE ROUTE
RETURNS FROM TRIP
The Capital Highway, which was
boosted quite extensively through
this section of the state for the past
few weeks, seems to have undergone
a change in location. .The promoters
were very urgent in pointing out
that the route would pass through
Auburn. Xbraska City and I'latts
mouth to Omaha, but the fact that
the business men of the various cities
failed to come across with the
amount of coin desired caused a
change in location of the road. It
is announced now tnat the road will
be laid through Tecumseh, Syracuse,
Weeping Water ajidV;' Louisville in-
stead of the larger towr.s. The busi
ness men of Louisville subscribed to
the fund last week in order to assure
the road running through their town.
The civic bodies of tho eastern Ne
braska cities faikd to t je how the
price of the markers wo::ld be worth
the amount arked i.nd s thr-re are
now two important higrrvcys, the K.
T. and George Washing on, laid out
through this part of the state, an
other one seemed useless and espec
ially at the price asked for the mark
ing and other improvements.
