Welcome to 1909.
Have you sworn off?
Popular song of tbe New Year—
“I'm on the Water Wagon Now.’’
Bryan does not seem to like Taft's
selection of cabinet officers so far.
That’s too bad.
Congress appropriated $800,000 for
tbe relief of the earthquake sufferers
of southern Italy.
Over $100,000 lias been sent from
tiie United States to the stricken
earthquake district of Italy.
The senatorial tight in Ohio was
won last Thursday by Burton, Taft
and Foraker getting out of the race.

J. B. Dean, a democratic lawyer of
Broken Bow, has been named for the
vacant one-year judgship. Now, will
he do the Sullivan resigning stunt?
The county democratic central com
mittee filed its expense account in
the late campaign as $50. No tiling
of campaign expenses have been made
with the county clerk for the popu
list, prohibition or socialist parties,
leaving the inference that they had
no money nor expended any.
Representative E. A. Brown left for
Lincoln last Saturday morninv to be
present at the opening session of the
legislature Tuesday morning of this
week. Sherman county will expect a
good report from their representative
this being his second term, and he
being onto the ropes, as it were.
It is predicted that the great earth
quake in Southern Italy last week,
an account of which is given on an
other page of the Northwestern, will
prove the most destructive of life and
property of any ever in the history of
the world. The latest estimate of
loss of life is placed at 275,000 and
Judge Hostetler has fixed the dis

Labor leaders seem to be up against
a proposition these days. Last week
Wednesday, Gompers. who tried to
deliver the labor vote to Bryan in the
late campaign, was sentenced to a
year in the penitentiary for alleged
boycotting, while Mitchell and Morri
son, vice president and secretary of
the Federation of Labor, of which
Gompers is president, were also given
nine and six months' sentence, res
The tone of the resolutions in
vestigating Roosevelt for alleged
slander of the pretty boys of congress,
were toned way down from what one
would have supposed from their
angry passions at the close of the
reading of the message containing
said alleged defamation of their
saintly characters. We can even at
this time imagine seeing the warm
smile of Teddy as/he turns the
blubbering boys over his lap and ad
ministers the shingle.
According to latest reports, Pitts
burg bids fair to outrival Frisco in
sensational graft prosecutions. Nine
arrests of the most prominent; men of
that city have been made over muni
cipal grafts, and six other of the big
fellows have departed for unknown
points to escape arress. Ruef and his
gang of San Francisco scoundrels are
apt to be placed in the shadow by the
greater scoundrelism of the Pittsburg
fellows draft expositions aregetting
to be all the go nowadays.
It is claimed that the democratic
legislature will institute a campaign
to oust two of Gov. Sheldon’s appoin
tees to the supreme bench ami put in
two democrats instead. Whatever the
outcome or result of the trouble aris
ing over tiie appointment of supreme
judges, it seems to us that Gov.
Sheldon was unwise in not courteous
ly appointing two judges from each
party and thereby hiding his soreness
over defeat, even if lie could not
eliminate It from under liis hatband.
A portion of the legislative pre
liminary agony is over, the demo
cratic house and senatorial caucuses
on Monday selecting tiie principal
appointive offices of the incoming
legislature. For the house. C. W.
Pool of Tecumseli was chosen speaker
but shorn of any appointive power
over employees, making him merely
an official automaton, so to speak, and
making Trenmore Cone of W'alioo,
chief clerk. In the senate, G. W.

School began on schedule time Mon
day with practically all pupils present
and eager for work. The indications
are that the succeeding term is to be
the best in the history of the school.
We failed to mention in our last
notes a new departure inaugurated
by Supt. O’Connell, urging all classes
to take the state examination under
the county superintendent, whenever
a class has finished a subject. Last
month the class in book keeping
registered and received good grades.
This is the regular teachers' examina
tion in which all papers are graded
in the office of the State Superinten
dent at Lincoln. The members of
the book keeping class are proud of
their success and of being the first to
set this high standard for the school.
Normal Training Inspector J. A.
Droney of Lincoln, paid an official
visit to the school and was highly
pleased with the normal training
class. He gave us an interestingtalk
at chapel and in the evening said we
had one of the best normal classes in

Last week Wednesday evening, Dec.
30, 1908, at the First Presbyterian
church in this city, occurred the
marriage of Miss Elizabeth Zimmer
man, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
A. L. Zimmerman, to Mr. William B.
Owen, of North Yakima, Wash. It
was one of the most notable weddings
occurring in this city in the past, and
gotten up in the most elaborate
manner. The ceremony took place at
8 o’clock in the evening before a large
company of invited guests, Rev. L. C.
McEwen of Kearney officiating. The
church was tastefully decorated with
potted plants, smilax and holly, and
canopy of ribbons extending from the
center of the edifice to the pulpit.
At precisely 8 o’clock, to the sweet
strains of the wedding march, with
Miss Mabel Owen, sister of the groom,
presiding at the organ, the ushers
escorted the families of the bride and
groom to seats reserved for them on
the right of the main aisle. Shortly
after, Prof. Floyd F. Speaker, acting
as best man to the groom, entered
from a door on the left aisle of the
church, simultaneously with the en
trance at the main aisle of the brides
maid, Miss Elva Zimmerman, sister
of the bride, marching to their
stations In the front of the church.
Following the best man, came the
groom, while following the brides
maid came the bride daintily attired
in white satin, leaning on the arm of
her father, and was received at the
altar by the groom, when the words
were spoken that united their lives,
the beautiful ring ceremony being
used, at the close of which the bridal
party went to the home of the bride’s
parents where a reception to a few
select friends took place, Besides the
parties above mentioned, Messrs.
Arthur Brown and Rex Jeffords were
ushers, and Misses Ernie Odendahl,
.less Culley, Lena Smith, Mary Min
shull, Emma Williams and Pearle
Needham were maids of honor. The
bride is too well know n to readers of
the Northwestern to need comment
at our hands. Growing from early
childhood to womanhood in Loup City
and Sherman county, a bright, talent
ed girl, favorite with a large circle of
friends of all ages, an excellent
musician and teacher of one of the
largest music classes in our city, she
has won her way into the hearts of
all by her sweet disposition and active
work in the church, of which she has
been leader of the choir for many
months. Of the groom, our people
know little, but by reputation lie is a
bright, talented young man, for sev
eral years teacher of voice culture in
colleges, but at present employed in
government reclamation service with
headquarters at North Yakima,
Wash., where the happy couple will
make their home. They left Thurs
day morning for a few days at the
home of the groom’s parents at
Toledo, Iowa, and from there will go
immediately to North Yakima. We
voice our people in their entirety,
when we wish for Mr. and Mrs. Owen
a bright, prosperous and happy future.
Those present at the wedding from a
distance were: Mrs. J. A. Owen. Miss
Mabel Owen and Master Alfred Owen,
mother, sister and brother of the
groom from Toledo, Iowa, and Prof.
Floyd F. Speaker, principal of schools
at Prbana. Iowa.
The Austin church was the scene of
a very pretty wedding on Wednesday,
Dec. 30, 1908, when Fred C. Jack and
Miss Marie Larsen were united in
marriage by Rev. D. W. James of
the Baptist church at high noon, in
the presence of a large number of
relatives and friends. The bride was
aftended by her sister, Miss Laura
Larsen, and Mr. John Needham was
best man to the groom. At high noon
to the strains of the Loliegrin wedding
march played by Miss Byrdee Need
ham, the bridal party entered and took
their places beneath a canopy of green
and white decorations hung with
white bells where the ceremony took
place,after which they marched to the
hall where they received congratula
tions, when some thirty friends drove
to the home of the bride’s parents and
partook of a delicious luncheon. On
Thursday evening following a recep
tion was given the happy couple at
the M. W. A. hall in Rockville at
which there were about two hundred
and fifty guests. They were the re
cipients of many handsome and use
ful presents. They will farm near
On Wednesday, Dec. 30, 1908, Mr.
Alvah E. Cox and Miss Laura L.
Goodell were married at the home of
the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. B.
L. Goodell in south Loup City town
ship. At 10 o’clock a. m., while Mrs.
C, R. Sweetland played the wedding
march, the bridal pair marched into
the parlor and took their places and
the nuptial knot was tied by D. W.
James, pastor of the Loup City Bap
tist church. Mr. and Mrs. Cox will
make their home at Bladen, Neb.,

A Timely Notice From The Council Bluffs RemedySr»o.
On account of the method that is being practiced by unscrupulous competition, we hereby challenge anv
Stock Food or Remedy Company in the County to make a test with us. We will go into any herd of hogs, and
cut out 20 head of the culls, and will then give our competitor the privilege of selecting 10 best out of the lot.
we will take the remaining 10 head and guarantee to produce as much fat with 8 bushels of corn as you or he
can with 10 bushels, or lose $200.00 in ten weeks test.
Gentlemen, this means business, if you have what you claim, the same goods, only under a different
brand, come out and prove it to the farmer.
We guarantee to save 00 per cent of any herd we treat, or the goods cost you absolutely nothing. Gen
tlemen, can you afford to be without this protection, when the Government reports show that the loss of hog
in this state alone amounts to more than a million dollars annually?
Do you want to help make up this loss? Certainly not. Then let us protect you.
The above statement ought to prove the value of our goods, when we can produce as much fat with 8 bushel
of corn as you can with 10, we immediately become a benefactor to you, by increasing the earning power of the
corn. Besides that we protect you against the terrible death loss.
We have an honest medicine of genuine merit, it cures when cure is possible. While you are growing hogs
you have but one object in view that of making money, and when we stand ready to go into a 10 weeks test, backed
up with a guarantee of Two Hundred Dollars, deposited in any bank, that our Remedy will do as claimed, it cer
tainly proves that we have got value in our goods, and you cannot afford to be without them

EDITORS ON EVANGELISM
Aurora Sun vs. Minden
Aurora has had an eight weeks
revival With only nine conversions,
eight of whdm were girls. For this
seeming failure the Aurora Sun claims
it is due to the evangelist, Rev. Rick,
He did not back up his bible state
ments with scientific truths. The Sun
claims that this is a scientific age and
many men will not accept the doctrine
of future punishment solely on bibical
authority. The editor of the Sun is
living about fifty years behind the
times. Future punishment used to be
a drawing card but it is obselete now
and is only now and then referred to.
The successful evangelist must insult
the greater portion of the community
and the more slang he uses and the
more, rag-time music, the better.—
The editor of the Courier evidently
belongs to that class which, with no
accurate information, proceeds to
judge a popular revival effort by such
scraps of misinformation as public
rumor and prejudice may bring to
him. The leaders of the great denomi
nations, men who have made their
mark in the financial and intellectual
life of the country, men for instance
like John Wannamaker, plan deliber
ately and maturely for revivals, be
cause they think these timesof religi
ous interest are beneficial. All the
leading protestant denominations are
sending out revivalists, men like
Moody, Sankey, Chapman, Prof.
Henry Drummond and many others
of lesser ability, but of equal purity of
life and motive. It is the testimony
of leading historians whose namesand
works we can give if neceseary, that
these revival efforts have been pro
ductive of great good, causing many
to pay their debts, be reconciled to
their enemies and in general to
change their whole manner of life.
But now comes this Minden editor,
saying that the avtrage successful
evangelist must insult his audience,
etc., etc. Mliere is no better example
of a man’s cutting and slashing about
in supreme ignoranee of the fact that
he is running couneer to the judg
ment of really well informed men.
“A .little knowleege is a dangerous
A smattering of information, but no
substantial learning, is the best way
to describe his remarks concerning
future punishment. The late Prof
Huxley, one of the greatest scientists
says that the idea current in some
quarters that modern research has de
stroyed the basis of punishment is
altogether contrary to the facts and
that the deeper science goes in her
study of nature, the more is the old
truth illustrated, that as a man sow
eth, so shall he also reap.
To confess the truth, we do not
generally enjoy revival meetings,
nevertheless we do not like to see
them misrepresented. Had the Minden
editor declared that now and then a
revivallist is a bad man he would have I
told the truth but to say that the
average revivalist is as he painted
him, is entirely misleading.
Instead of our being guilty of being
fifty years behind the times, our Min
den friend is guilty of taking the
stand that many a boy does after he
has studied is guilty of taking the
stand that many a boy does after he
has studied about a year in High
School: he then comes to certain con
clusions of which, should he push on
through college he will in after years j
