The dog poisoner was abroad in
our city last Friday night. and as a
consequence it is estimated that not
less than a dozen curs, both valuable
and valueless ceased to exist. While 1
such indiscriminate slaughter of the
canine world in Loup City is not in
the least commendable and most
reprehensible in character, yet our
citizens as a class would not feel
mortally offended should the dog
population be depleted to the extent
of perhaps a hundred of its worthless
curs, a numberof which exhibit m ire
or less of a vicious nature. Yet. as a
matter of is the vicious;
and most undesirable that survive
and say with most truthful canine
candor. ‘'Never touched me.”
There are so manv so-called comedies
on the road that it seems impossible
to always know when to go to see one
and when to remain at home. Who
ever heard of a Hoyt Comedy ever
disappointing an audience? We have
one coming and it is safe to say it is
one that we may patronize and get
our money's worth. No play lias ever
been in this section woicii was so
praised by press and public. Mana
ger I’ilger is recommending "A
Bachelor's Honeymoon" as one of his
leading attractions. Not only is it a
comedy which stood the test of a
New Vork continuous season, but it
is more quoted than any comedy on
the road today and is not to l>e
classed with the ordinary shows It
will be here Thursday. Nov. 12.
The supper given by our Catholic
friends at the I’ilger opera house
election night was one of the most
successful of the many suppers given
by the various churches at the opera
house in the years past, the neat sum
of $75 being realized. While credit is j
due to the many ladies connected j
with that church and the young lady <
helpers who proffered valuable assist- ■
ance in waiting on the tables, the !
greatest credit is unanimously given
to Mrs. M. C. Muli'ck. on whose
shoulders rested the responsibility of
its success, and who labored day'and
night to make it such. The entire
hall was filled with long tables loaded
with the best of things for the inner
man. daintily spread, and were liberal
ly patronized by our people generally.
The horse raffled was won by Matt
Janulewicz. The church desires us
to extend their thanks to all for the i
liberal patronage, and especially those
outside of the congregation who gave
such valuable assistance.

We received a pleasant call last
Thursday from our good friend. Henry
Cap pel lan of Hazard township, ac
companied bv bis son-in-law, Mr.
Wilke, the latter being a son of
Herman Wilke of Hazard, whose death
occurred a fortnight since. The
gentlemen were here on business con
nected with the estate.
The young people of the Baptist
| church are anxious to help in the
improvements being made in the
; church and have undertaken for theii
part the buying of a new organ. As
one of the ways of raising money foi
the organ thev will have a Iwx social
at the home of C. R. Sweetland next
Wednesday evening. Nov. 11. A cor

will come.
Geo. Wosnicke & Son, the butchers,
last week purchased from A. P.
Gulley the lot adjoining the Swanson
brick and lias let the contract tc
Ohlsen Brothers for a tine new brick
building thereon, in place of the old
frame, and will remove their meat
market into the same. Work will
| commence on the building as soon as
. the brick work on the Swanson build

IT. M. Walker and daughter. Mrs.
Ethel McDonall. left Saturday morn
ing for a winter's visit to the Pacific
Coast. They expected to go west to
San Francisco and thence nortli to
Seattle and Spokane, where Mr.
Walker has a sister living near each
city. It is possible Mr. Walker may
like the country so well that he will
sell his interests here and move his
family to the coast.
A letter received a few' days since
from our old friend. Thos. Burton, at
Aurora. Mo., wants his paper changed
to that address, as lie has sold his
mercantile stock at Galena and gone
back to Aurora. He says crops were
not very good there this year and
fruit almost a failure. Tomatoes,
however, are a never failing crop
there and as usual there were plenty
this rear. Mr. Burton lias a good
farm "in Barton county, that state,
but does not indicate whether lie will
take charge of the same later, though
speaks of lieing at Aurora only tem
porarily. Good lubk to him always.
The State Journal is trying awful
hard to get people to give that daily
a trial. Its offer now is to send the
paper from date until January 1.1909,
for only 50 cents without Sunday, or
To cents with Sunday. The publishers
feel sure that anyone who tries The
State Journal will stick. However,
they have adopted an aiisolute rule of
stopping every subscritier when his
term is out. If there is anything that
makes a man mad it is to subscribe
for a city daily and then have to tight
with the publishers to get it stopped
or pay for something he doesn't w ant.

Tbe girls' basket ball team of the
high school went to St. Paul last
Friday to engage in a match game
with the high school girls of that
city. The game took place in the
gymnasium which was a disadvantage
to Loup City as they have been
practicing outdoors, resulting in a
score of "Ai to 31 in favor of St. Paul.
But nevertheless, we believe and it
was admitted by nearly every dis
interested person that we have much
the best team. The St. Paul girls
averaged nearly a head taller than
the Loup City girls, this being the
only point in which they excelled, as
our girls far outmatched them in
swiftness, team work and systematic
playing. Anyone who saw the game
will admit that we have two of the
best forwards in the state, while the
centres and guards also distinguished
themselves by fast and cool playing.
A ret urn game will be played here on
Nov. 14. The boys will also play the
St. Paul boys' team at phat time.
Asking Too Much.
I believe there’s a sjory told of
Mark Twain that in youthful days,
being sent out by his mother to weed
a certain flower bed, and finding more
weeds than flowers, he came back and
asked if he might not “flower the
weed bed.” Our little Alfred probably
had as great an aversion to work as
had the youthful Clemens. Ad
monished to pull some rather large
weeds in the back yard, after a faint>
hearted lift on one of them, he shout
ed: -Mama, how do you think I’m
going to pull these weeds when the
w hole w orld is hitched onto them?”—

Crops of the Year.
New York Herald.
The estimate of the corn crop in
dicates a yield of 2,065.298,000 bushels,
w hich is 255.000,000 more bushels than
the average corn crop of the ten years
1S98 to 1907. The final estimate of
the combined production of spring
and w inter wheat is 659,000.000 bushels
(against a total of 634.087.(Khi bushels
in 1907) of 89.4 per cent quality. Of
this total, it is estimated that the
spring w heat harvest will be 233,000,
ihh) bushels, which is 3.000,000 bushels
more than the yield in 1907. The
quality of the crop of oats is given as
81.3 per cent, and the estimated total
yield as 789,161,000 bushels, which is
34,000,060 bushels in excess of last
year's oat crop. These figures fully
indicate that, if the harvests of 1908
have not broken any records, they are
nevertheless very bountiful ‘ and
The Loup City Mills are now
running 24 hours per day. We have
two new mille-is. Mr. E. C. Johnson,
head miller, has had 22 years ex
perience milling in Nebraska, running
tlie Crete mills 14 years as head
miller: Mr. Nelson Smith, our night
miller, is also a man who understands
milling. With these two millers and
having recently put in new rolls,
there is no reason why we cannot
make as good flour as any mill in
central Nebraska. We une only the
best wheat and ask the farmers and
town people to give our flour a trial.
It is handled by the merchants of
Loup City and surrounding towns.
Just because you got a sack of tiour
in the past you did not like is no
reason you will not like our flour now.
We are paying and can afford to pay
■ tlie farmer more for good wheat than
lit is worth to ship and in this way
the farmer is benefited. When you
need flour again be sure and try a
| sack made at Loup City. Our prices
are no higher than other flour and
why not patronize a home institution.
We give more pounds of flour in ex
change to tlie farmer than most mills
and every sack is guaranteed. Our
business is increasing and we wish to
thank our many customers for their
patronage. We also keep a full supply
of feed on hand. We grind feed for
, customers on Friday of each week.
