THE DAY WE CELEBRATE.
Next Tuesday is the glorious 4tb of July. The fl.ig of this great repu.
folic will float to the brtm all over these united States. It is the one day
ive all others a a natioaM holiday that the people of our free country
love to celebrate, it is (a hallowed day the day that commemorate! the
lift and birth of hsfrrt, m well m the greatest free Republican earth to
day. We believe it would be the proper (thing to do, if the Declaration, of
liiliiilunre were read in every dwelling houM in the land on that day
above all otljer (lavs except Sundays most dear to the American people.
It is Hte one war (but not the only way; of teaching your children
patriotism wlm-li, being properly defined meane in these United States
fri-e iMid imlepencUmt. liberty loving people. It should also mean fiee
rpttjch; free pres the right to serve God according to the dictates of one's
own cosncienoe ami all otlier pnvilsge and rights that belong to a free
people. But within the post decs all these right have been abridged to a
certain-extent. Thus we believe, there is as much or move need today that
ue ri(f generation of young men and women be taught the true princi
pals of the Declaration of Independence, which has been comraerated year
by year, on every 4th of July since that greatest of declaration of princi
pals wis written by Thomas JefTenoa and promulgated to the world by a
Msoplett that time, fighting and shedding their own prescious blood in or
der thart their posterity should be free and Independent on and on without
On that day every residence in the land should have floating from it or
place of business or both an Amasicaa 'flag.
A Royal Entertainment,
Given By The Royal
Neighbors of America.
On lost Tuesday evening, the ladies at the Silver Leaf Chapter, of R.
,l (WHy, ..terns Wl at ttw e roesuSo efaie) AsaVews Httek. At
lmetllfty guests responded to the cordial invitation extended then, an. I
uese met at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. 8mith, on Broad Street by a
delegation from the "camp" and escorted to the Lodge rooms, which had
been umierjfoing a marvelous transformation, and was now changed to a
lniuett hall, Covers wore laid for fifty ,aad after Oracle Bowker's ad
dress of welcome, the guests sat down. The waitresses were commposil
of a bevy of ladies of the camp, all wearing the insignia of their order, the
decoration of the table was in red and yellow, which when Wended with the
deep purple(the color of the camp) made a most striking contrast. The
ladies of the camp were untiring in their attention to their many guests,
ne'er sitting down until the last one had been served. The unique feat
ure of the evening was a voting contest, two priszes were offered, one for
the prettiest lady, and the other for the homeliest man. The cake for
beauty was awarded to Mrs. Kendall, by a majority of two votes over Mrs.
Oriswold, tlm former receiving 23 votes, and the latter 23. And sad to
relate, but never-the-less true, the prize for being the tbomliest man in the
hall, was awarded to the quill pusher of the " JocRnxu The vote on this
stood as follows: 0. D. Canon 17, J. E. Marsteller 1& Rev. Kendall 8,
Delano Sutton 7, thus giving the cake to our own homely self. The next
feature was a cake walk by the ladies of tlie chupter This cake was award
ed to Mr. Ed Maine. After which all took their departure highly delighted
with the evenings entertainment and trusting the Royal Neighbors will
ovite them soon again but not forgetting to express their graduate to their
Valuation of Sioux County Property.

How I hate a rainy day :
Aa to school I make my way.
Trudging through the mire.
tor I know the children too
Think tbe day will ne'er get throegb,
And of U will tire.
When in doors the cblldnm stay
And cannot go out to plsy,
Then my patience tries,
Mo, Us not the noise they make.
Trying all tbe desks to break,
Bat their passions rise.
Did yoa ever, when in school.
Notice, aa a general role.
That they oant agree?
For the Yankee, Irish, Batch,
Can't scree so very much
for three ways they sea.
ChlMrea hare from every aatlsa,
, Hlgb and low and aildcUe station
hat up In a room,
First they quarrel, then they fight.
Mow they kick and scratch and bite,
Striking with me broom.
Than 1 lose my patience quite.
Wheat the children quarrel and tight,
Aad fat them I ge.
- niu toess osj by i in trt
Use tbe sprout Uh cousaieaoe clear,
whipping as we go.
Then I make them take their books:
Oh, how mad encb pupil looks
With a frown nnd pout.
And no recess do they get
Till the rain is oe'r vou bet!
So tbey can go out.
When the storm kas cleared away
And they can go out to play,
Dow relieved am I.
how they run and Jump and shout,
Wben at recess they're let out,
And no weudur way.
No, Tie not for District 4
That these lines are written for,
Tie soother school.

Oecured tbe facts that I have given.
