Wins Many Prizes
A. L. Mayabb. the breeder of the
Hig Type Poland China hogs living
west cf Flittsmouth. is making a
big success of the raising of this very
popular kind of porkers. He has
just purchased one of the Peter Pan
boars and an excellent individual he
has at that.
He hid a son of Queen Omaha at
the county fair last month which
won many prizes for this enterpris
ing young man. Quen Omaha took
first prize as an aged sow. being
weighed at the fair and tipping the
hem at 710 an 1 is two and a half
yars of are. She also received in
her class first and second champion
and also grand champion, which is
doing fine for one individual. She
nlco got first prize on produce of
dam. and also first prize on get of
r.ire. which seems rather plenty for
what he had on exhibit. Mr. Mayabb
has about thirty of these fine porkers
and is expecting to hold a sale dur
ing the coming winter.

Frank P. Sheldon, who has been in
business in Nehawka for many years
and who knows what business is, de
clares he is well pleased with busi
ness at this time, and notwithstand
ing storms and other hindrances,
people have to live, and he says that
if the business m.m will go after the
business, offer his customers full
value for their money and then hus
tle when he gets business instead of
Vir.g cortent to rest on his oars, he
will have no occasion to complain of
dull times. Times and business con
ditions are what you make them and
if one will hustle instead of sitting
around growling they are bound to
Enjoyed the Evening Greatly
A number of the neighbors of Mr.
Chester Minnear, who will move to
another neighborhood in the spring,
gathered at his home last Saturday
evening and made merry with their
; friends and with the large number
i present ail had a most excellent even

The next meeting of the parent-
teachers' association will be Tuesday j
evening. November 7, at S o'clock i
at the high school assembly room.
Every effort is being made to make j
the Nehawka parent-teachers' asso
ciation the success it has proven in
other places. The number in attend
ance at our first meeting this year
was small. Every parent should at
tend these meetings for the benefit
the vwill receive both for themselves
and their children.
At the last meeting it was voted
to require dues of 25 cents per year
for each member. It was felt there
would be no objection to such an
amount and that it was necessary
to have a little money in the treas
ury. Dues should be paid at the next
meeting when you will be enrolled as
An appointed committee has ar
ranged a splendid year's program. A
printed copy of this program will be
given you at the next meeting. In it
will be found the program of the eve
ning and the names of the hosts and
hostesses. There will be music, papers
on subjects vital to school and com
munity life and a chance for open
discussion on these subjects or on
any other subjects pertaining to
school. Then the serving of light re
freshments will give a social time
which will be thoroughly enjoyed.
Our teachers are very busy people.
This parent-teachers association
gives them more work to do, yet they
are going into It with willingness
and vim. Surely we parents can do
our part by joining the association,
r.t tending the meetings and showing
an interest. We will enjoy it all. It
will help us all.
November 7 the program will be
put on by the grades below the high
school. Our force of grade teachers
is working to give us an interesting
program, demonstrating the work
that is beintr done by our children
This will be very interesting and en
tertaining. Other meeting will be

the parents of school children, this
