The report having gone out that in
event of Loup City going "dry” Jen
ner’s Park would be turned into a
beer garden, a representative of the
Northwestern has it directly from Mr.
Harry Jenner that so long as lie owns
the park such will not be the case.
However, he has a proposition from a
Stanton, Neb., man to trade him a
tract of land in that county for the
park and should the transfer be made
lie has no means of knowing what the
new owner might do. The North
western has also lizard a rumor to the
effect that in event of a "dry” period
in Loup City, local men will put in a
new park near town, fora beer garden
but we have not as yet interviewed
those mentioned as the proposed pro
jectors, hence only give to report as
i given to us.
To preserve your house—your property — your dollars, you might say—you
must use paint. To do so economically the paint you use MUST have lasting qualities.
Remember, poor paint costs more than good paint, {or the work has to be done
oftener. Start right by getting
Horse Shoe Paint
and you can make up your mind it’s on to stay. The reason for this is plain. Horse
Shoe Paint is wholly composed of the strongest and best materials known in the
science of paint making — it contains no cheapening or adulterating materials what
ever. It s made of strictly Pure Zinc and White Lead for pigments. Add to this
Pure Linseed Oil—crushed by the manufacturers themselves to insure its purity — then
the necessary drier and coloring matter and you’ve got the best paint that money,
brains and material can produce.
Horse Shoe Paint has 6tood the test for 20 long years—it’s n proven paint— and
is sold in almost every town and city in the United States. Should not that fact
alone convince you that Horse Shoe Paint gives satisfaction beyond question ?
Hors® Shoe Paint does all we claim — we guarantee it to be pure and to wear.
Hors® Shoe Paint is absolutely pure; you buy it subject to chemical analysis and
its paint that lasts.
Pain* your house with Horse Shoe Paint this season by all means.

The Jewelry Business Is
Peculiar Unto Itself.
You, kind reader, buy on faith and
the jeweler buys on a scientific know
ledge of gems, material and construc
tion. You take your jeweler’s word
for the reliability of his goods, he
takes nobody’s word for it—he satis
fies himself as to their genuineness
and worth. For this reason you
should buy of your jeweler and not be
influenced by alluring advertisements
whose promises are not and cannot
be fulfilled. Our 27 years' experience
in the business enables us to take
advantage of qualities and prices.
We want your business, your chil
dren's business and your grandchil
dren’s business. To attain this we at
all times supply you with reliable
goods at right prices. No trouble to
show you. J. F. Jeffords.
