The Price of Cream
The dairymen of Loup City aud vacinity are receiving the
highest price for their butterfat than they have ever received
at this time of year.
Our competitors are paying much lower prices in the sur
rounding towns that have no local creamery than they are
paying in Loup City.
To prove this absolutely , just call up Ashton, Rockville,
Arcadia, Litchfield, Hazard or any of the nearby towns and
satisfy yourself with regard to-this price businesc.
We are the cause of these splendid prices you are receiv
ing for cream at Loup City, and if there was no Creamery in
Loup, you would be receiving the same price as the dairyman
are receiving at the surrounding towns.
Patronize the local creamery- because it furnishes you with
the highest cash market, pays the same price to everybody
and gives you a square deal every day in the year.
Our price this week is 26 cents for butterfat delivered here.
We solicit your business.

A Frank Talk
Somehow, the impression has gained ground that there isn’t much
difference between the various makes of typewriters on the market
You may think the same thing. It would take a good, sound,
logical argument to convince you that nO typewriters do not have the
same efficiency and that a stenographer cannot secure the same results
on every machine.
We are ready to make that argument and to show you by actual
The L C. Smith & Bros. Typewriter
will do more work, better work, with less fatigue to die stenographer,
than any writing machine ever made.
How is this possible?
Here are a few reasons:
1. It is ball bearing throughout—others are not.
2. All operations are controlled from the keyboard.
3. It is the lightest touch machine made.
4. It does not “smut” the carbon.
5. The ribbon reverses automatically.
6. The type is so protected that it is not battered
7. One motion of the hand returns the carriage and
operates the line space.
8. It has an inbuilt biller and tabulator.
9. No trouble to write on paper as small as a post
19. It is built for service.

The Lure of the City
MANY a boy on a farm has a yearning to live in town. The
glitter and glamor of the city gnaw at his soul. He longs to
get away from the quiet fields and into the din of the city
Strange, isn’t it, that a boy should prefer being swallowed up
in the crush of thousands instead of the independence and joy of
his home life? But he does. He wants excitement.
And we’ve got to give him excitement or he will become rest
less and dissatisfied.
Not rough, hurly-burly excitement that leaves nothing but a bad
taste. He will get enough of that. But what you want
-o give the boy of the farm and small town is entertain
ment that he’ll like and that will pay him to remember.
Let’s keep the boy on the farm by making him more
content with his lot; by giving him something to combat
this “Lure of the City” business.
And there is nothing that will do it better than the
Chautauqua. It stands for contented homes; it preaches
the gospel of opportunity outside the big city and it raises
intellectual and moral standards constantly higher. And
all the time it entertains.
It offers the right kind of ex citement.

That is the only way to do, as you
can then do your threshing when you
have more time, and allow you to do
your fall plowing early which is much
the best. Many times in waiting for
the threshers one loses heavily in
damaged wheat by heavy rains, will
bleach out and color not so good as in
stack. The loss in time also in help
ing others thresh from the shock in
rainy weather is some times heavy.

W. O. Brown was meeting witli the

A fierce wind storm preceded the
rain Sunday night and in many places
along the route took the form of a
tornado. One of these passed the N.
P. Neilson place, where it carried
wheat bundles for rods. It traveled
east, striking C. J. Norstedt’s place,
where it scattered bundles of wheat
for almost a quarter of a mile. It
then passed on to the Hawk school
house, lifting one of the outbuildings
clear over a wire fence into Hawk’s
pasture without touching the wires.
It next struck at the home of Will
Hawk, where it did more damage
than at any other place on the route.
His windmill was blown down and
lay north and south, while a large
cottonwood tree three feet in diame
ter and ninety feet in height was
blown across the garden and laid east
and west. This tree was taken out
by the roots and measured across the
bottom some ten feet and tore a deep
hole in the ground where it went
over. One tree that was blown down
fell across their porch, striking the
washing machine, smashing it into
pieces. The tornado did some other
damage here also, At almost every
place on the route there was more or
less damage. In some places the road
was almost filled with wheat bundles.
Many alfalfa stacks of the first cut
ting which had settled were cut in
two as slick as could be and the top
half scattered to the winds. In some
fields the corn stalks were taken out
by the roots and the blades of all corn
badly ribboned. At George McFad
den's a heavy feed bunk was carried
several rods over a wire fence never
thuching it. It also blew down a big
lot of wind brake here. J. Plambeck’s
windmill was damaged so he will liava

wheeels off from the windmills of E.
M. Marvel, Joe Blaschke ahd Henry
Goodwin. The loss to farmers in
having their wheat bundles rolled
over the grounds will run into hun
dred’s of dollars. It had to be re
shocked. The rain that covered th$
route was the most uneven for years.
At the home of J. A. Arnett it picked
up the hayrack fifty feet northwest
of the house carrying it along at a
fast clip until ft struclr the porch,
tearing out one of the posts. It was
picked up again and carried clear over
telephone line and out intoS. Young
lund’s corn field about four rows. The
wind ripped great strips of shingles
from the roof, moved the smoke house
forty feet and the corn crib several
feet. At Joe Blaschke’s it did a lot
of damage, but we did not learn par
ticulars, but for one thing it took the
mill. Geo. Wagner’s corn crib blew
over on to a new hayrack, smashing
it to pieces.
