Does Sherman County Need a
New Court House?
Editor Northwestern: Being in
Loup City Monday and having busi
ness at the court house, I went into
the clerk’s office and found there the
offices of county clerk, district clerk,
county assessor, etc., and too crowded
to, transact business. I then went to
the county treasurer’s office where
there was a little more room but no
place to rest. I then went up stairs
to the county judge’s office, and de
airing to look over some records, they
had to be taken out into the court
room to find room to look them over.
I also found there were more countv
officers who had to have offices out
side than inside the court house. 1
then asked myself the question,
would it not be better to have a new
court house of sufficient capacity to
provide offices for all within the same
building than to have them in hired
rooms over the town? I have been
opposed to a new court house proposi
tion in the past, but after going
through the old one and looking the
matter over am now in favor of a
new one. I want to hear from the
farmers over the county as to what
they think about it, and then will
give my ideas of how we can secure it.

Change Not
With Results
At '.ny rate the change in time ser
vice on the Burlington passenger is
proving to be great pickings for the
Union Pacific at Ord. Passengers
down the line say that the train fre
quently leaves Burwell with a good
sized load but lose at least half and
sometimes two-thirds of them at Ord
where they abandon the Burlington
to make the Union Pacific and get
out of the country via Grand Island
route.—Burwell Tribune.
The same conditions prevail on this
branch at Loup City and St. Paul, j
The lure of catching a through train I
it Aurora has fallen flat for the rea
son that t.he crack train is late two
Llurds of the time and patrons of the
road are not taking any chances of
being detained at Aurora five hours
just for the pleasure of riding on it.
Hence they drop off at either of these
towns and get Union Pacific connec
tions and reachjtheir destinations on
schedule time.—Sargent Leader.
Injured When
Cigar Explodes
Broken Bow,Neb., May 23.—With a
report resembling that of a pistol, a
cigar which was being smoked by ex
county prosecutor Gadd, exploded,
seriously injuring his eye. The at
torney had just left the postoffice and
was lightiug the cigar when the ao
cident occurred. The explosion was
heard by people a block away and
bystanders seeing Mr. Gadd throw
his hands to his eyes supposed some
one had shot him and rushed to his
assistance. The affair is somewhat
mysterious as the injured man pur
chased the cigar himself from a fresh
ly opened box. The cigar belongs to
a brand manufactured by a North
Plate firm, and it is the intention of
Mr. Gadd to make an investigation.
Sunday Base Bali
Wins by Big Vote
The election Monday to see whether
Sunday base ball would be legalized
by a vote of the people carried in both
wards in favor of the proposition by
a total vote of 148 to 34, or something
over 4 to 1/ It was a forgone conclu
sion in the minds of the voters that
the people py a Urge majority were
in favor of Sunday base ball, hence,
numbers who were against It did not
go to the polls at all, so that the vote
in reality does not fairly record the
entire feelings of the population, but
does record the fact that the will of
the voters is largely in favor of said
proposition, as had all those failing
to vote been recorded “No,” yet the
majority would have still been in
favor of it, while the facts in the
case are that many voters, both pro
and con, did not vote at all.
Mrs. Will Paolman »
On last Friday night, about 10
o’clock, May 23rd, 1913, occurred the
death of Mrs. Will Paulman of this
city from the dread disease tubercu
losis. Mrs..Paulman had been a suf
ferer from tuberculosis for some time
and her death was not unexpected,
still came with deepest sorrow to
husband, children, mother, brothers
and sisters and a host of friends, and
causing deep sorrow to our commu
nity. The funeral occurred from-the
M. E. church in this city on the Sun
il it afternoon following, and her body
laid to rest in Evergreen cene
tery, our ceautiful resting place of
the departed.
Memorial Services
The Memorial services at the Pres
byterian clmrch last Sunday morning
were of a very interesting character.
The church was well filled and the
program was well carried out. The
address was given by Dr. D.A. Leeper
of the M. E. church, who spoke from
Hebrew 11-4, “He being dead, yet
speaketh.’’ The doctor avoided to a
great extent the well-beaten path of
former addresses on like occasions,
his principal thought being that the
influence of man was much greater
after he had passed from earth than
while yet with us. In other woTds,
a man is not rightly appreciated till
he passes hence. While yet alive, his
imperfections are so exploited that we
lose sight of the better and more last
ing impressions of the good he has
done and of tiie example he sets for
the better. While here on earth,
Washington, Lincoln, Webster, and
other great minds, were belittled,
criticised, condemned, found fault
with, and their worst side put forth,
to the discredit of the good they ac
complished, while after death only
the good was remembered. So it is
With us all. While in this life the
worst is exploited, after death only
the good is remembered and spoken
of. He paid his respects to the news
papers, especially the great dissemi
nators of news, claiming the pulpit
was a greater power for good than the
press, with those great reflectors in
mind. The newspapers exploit the
evil with us, much to the elimination
of the better things, while the pulpit
gives only of the best and for moral
uplift. Space will not allow of ex
tended report of his address, but to
our mind it was certainly the most
masterful address along the above
lines of thought we have heard at
any of the former memorial occasions,
and reflected mueh credit on the
James Landers
Dies Tuesday
Our people were shocked Tuesday
by the sad news that Mr. James Lan
iiers. formerly of this city, liad died
it 11 o’clock at his home in Arcadia,
resulting from typhoid fever. ‘“Jim”
■Zanders, as he was more familliary
palled by all who knew him, was a
a great, big, warm-hearted, genial,
whole-souled man, and counted as
friends all who knew him, He is sur
vived by his aged parents, two sis
ters, wife, two married daughters and
five grandchildren. His body is to
be brought to Loup City today for
burial in our Evergreen cemetery.
Two Auto’s
' Slightly Mix
Last Saturday afternoon as the Lee
auto, wic>h a load of people, driven by
James Lee’s young son, was on its way
out to the home of Ed Angier in
Webster township, the Oliver Mason

Mason, and driven by Mrs. Mason,
suddenly turned a corner in the west
part of town and crashed into the rear
end of the first-named car, t wisting
the rear axletree and breaking a for
ward spring in the Mason auto.
Fortunately no one was hurt, and no
serious damage to either car.

Frederick Hotel
Opened for Business
On Wednesday noon of this week
the new Frederick Hotel, just com
pleted, and owned by Mrs. Viola
Odendahl, was opened for business,
with one of the most tempting and
appetizing dinners ever placed before
the public. While the opening of the
new hotel was not & formal affair,
the management gave a spread to the
public generally at a dollar a plate
whice would do credit to any of the
more elaborate and functional din
ners usually given on such occasions.
It had been understood by the public
that the hotel, when ready for open
ing, would be preceded by dedicatory
services with a tine banquet, com mem
orative of the erection of this elegant
and expensive hostelry, which would
do credit to a town many times the
size of this, but tbe “best laid plans
o’ mice an’ men aftimes gang aglee,”
and such proved to be the case in
this. However, Mrs. Odendahl, not
to be daunted by untoward circum
stances, set about to open the bouse
informally, givingasplen
did dinner to all who might wish to
be present on the opening day, nearly
one nunarea or our people taking ad
vantage of tire occasion to be present,
eat of the splendid repast, congratu
late the enterprising lady for giving
to tbe city such an elegant and up-to
date hostelry, and inspect the build
ing from garret to basement, so to
speak. And for a fact “Tiie Freder
ick,” is at once a pride and honor to
our city. Situated on a business
corner of our principal street. It has
a frontage on the south of 50 feet, ex
tending to the north 90 feet, built of
brick, with pressed brick frontage on
the south and east, is two stories in
height, with basement under entire
structure, steam heated and lighted
by electricity throughout, with baths
and toilets, elegant furniture, and
everything in keeping with the most
modern and latest of decorative art,
Loup City cannot fail to be proud of
her handsome new hotel, and equally
congratulatory of the lady who has
made it possible for such a building
to be erected in our city. Tire base
ment will be given over to sample
rooms, laundry, furnace etc. The
drat' floor given over to jbe office, din
ing room, kitchen and accessories, the
large front room on the southeast
corner of the first floor to be rented
for business purposes, being an idealj
place for a millinery emporium, while
the upper floor is given ovef to the
ladies' parlor, bedrooms, toilets and
baths. Not another such a palatial
hotel will be found in the state out
side the larger cities and towns, and
certainly not any other town of this

If you want to buy anything, anywhere, let
! us council with you before you do. We have
traveled, investigated, bought, sold and kept
careful count of net results. We have made and
lost, but in the main have gained, have often
left the near to seek the far off good, which we
have seldom found. t
Many old men will very likely read these
i simple words, tired of summer heat and winter
cold, they want to rest and we can tell them
how because we know of many young men who
want to buy just what they desire to sell. We
can show them how to do these very things with
: safety to them both and we can make a profit
for ourselves which no one will regret.
