A New Tread a Lower Price
Reliable Goodyear Quality
Here is a new Goodyear Cord Tire a big, sturdy, long
wearing tire that sells at a price lower than you are asked
to pay for many "long discount" tires of unknown value.
It has a different tread from the famous Goodyear All
Weather Tread Cord a new tread with a deep, clean-cut,
cog-like pattern and it sells for from 20 to 25 less.
It has in it the same high-grade long-staple cotton, the same
Goodyear patented group-ply construction, the same liber
ally oversize dimensions.
When you buy the 412-inch sire, for example, you get a tire
whose actual measurement is nenrly 5 inches.
Don't confuse this Goodyear Cross-Rib Tread Cord with
other popular-price cords which sell at the same price or for
In many cases, these other cords are made of inferior mate
rials, with short-staple cotton as a foundation.
Get the tire that is good enough to carry the Goodyear name,
that is built to safeguard the world-wide Goodyear reputation.

BIRDS OF FREEDOM
"As we know," commenced Daddy,
"the Bald Eagles are the Birds of
Freedom. They are the American na
"They live mostly along our Eastern
coasts, though they fly over lakes and
rivers, as well as coastlines.
"It Is because they live everywhere,
for one reason, that they are chosen
as the American birds.
"For if they were birds of just one
little section or one kind of land it
would not be nearly so suitable as it Is
to have birds whose families are -willing
to have their homes in more than
one part of the land.
"The head and neck and tail of the
full-grown Bald Eagle is white. And
it Is not until a Bald Eagle becomes of
age that he ha,s these touches.
"The rest of his plumage is brown
and black, while liis bill and legs are
yellow and the iris of his eye is yel
low. "Then, too, there are occasional
touches of white to the grown-up
"The young Eagles wear brownish
black fuits, with spots for decorations.
"Their beaks are black and their legs
are yellow, and the iris of the young
Eagle's eye Is brown.
"During the second and third year
they begin to show more white on the
under parts of the tail, but still the
tall Is of a blackish color.
"It Is not until they are three years
old that they're really grownup Bald
Eagles, with all the fineries of the
"Eagles are mostly to be seen in the
spring and summer, but they have no
very special time of the year for being
around, which makes them nice birds
to be chosen for American birds.
"For it would not be so well to have
birds that are around one time of the
year and not another as our National
"They can see great distances, and
they watch the water iu the summer
time for dead lish. This is their fa
vorite kind of food, though they will
always go for sheep or calves which
huve been killed.
'They are very, very famous for
their sight and, though I have told you
this before, I like to tell It to you
"For It is so nice to think that the
American Bird of Freedom is the bird
with the fine eyesight, who can see
from afar end not simply the thing
nearest his nose, or beak.

with their marketing they will wait to

a Day of Enjoyment.
Yesterday at the Fontenelle park
in Omaha was held the picnic of the
former Plattsmouth people residing
in Omaha and also a number of the
friends from this city who gathered
to enjoy the occasion. The beautiful
park was an ideal spot for the gath
ering and some seventy-live of those
who once knew Plattsmouth as home,
observed the day. It was ideal for the
picnic from every standpoint and the
event will long be remembered by
those in attendance as the time was
spent in relating the stories of the
bygone years in the old town by the
rivtr, and the inquiry after the
friends of former days, some of whom
have roamed to other parts of the
world and others who have gone to
come no more at the bid of old times

The community clearance sale that
eighteen of the progressive mer
chants of the city are arranging for
the week of July 29th to August
5th, promises to be one of the big
gest events of its kind ever held in
this part of the state and one that
should be taken advantage of to the
This event is to be known as the
"Let's Go" sales, although from the
merchant's standpoint it might more
properly be termed "LET GO," for
that it what they propose to do. It
is equipped with self-starters of the
rarest bargains in the line of sea
sonable merchandise. The merchants
are having their bills prepared for
the sale and in the center of these
bills will be. found the self starters
that will open the eyes of the pros
pective buyers. Among the starters
are brooms for 29c, 20c hose for Sc,
15c handkerchiefs for a nickel. In
gersoll watches for 98c, and on Wed
nesday, August 2nd, there will be a
special fresh meat offer that will
prove a boon to the farmers who are
buying supplies for the threshing
days. On this day also there will
be a band concert in the evening and
the stores will be open until 9 p. m.
Other self-starters to be featured are
. Winchester screwdrivers, 10c, win
' dow and wall brushes, 4 9c, ice cream
sundaes and sodas, 10c and many
' other bargains that will make the
eyes of the purchasers open with
It is not alone the "self-starters"
that will give the people their full
money's worth, but each of the stores
will have all of their summer mer
rhandise on the block at prices that
cannot fail to move them at once.
This clearance sale is to be a semi
annual event, in July and January,
and at which times the merchants
of the city will make a real sacrifice
of the goods that they have on hand
and which will give the public the
fullest advantage of the saving in
price. There will be no entertain
ment features aside from the band
concert, and every penny saved in
this way will go Into the bargains s
that will be offered the public and
enable them to buy what they need
at prices within the reach of every
one. Special features will be the offers
on farm produce and here it might
be remarked that this city has be
come one of the best chicken mar
kets in the state, as the prices offered
each Thursday are 2c higher than
the Omaha market and the chickens
brought here have come from as far
south as Auburn.
Saturday, August 5th, will be Ford
day when prizes will be offered to
all Ford owners, the prizes being
given for the largest number in a

the largest number of ladies in a
car, the greatest size of occupants

sisting of father, mother and child

This sale it may be stated does not
conflict in any way with the regu

merchandise especially purchased for
the occasion, but this is the regular
