To the heirs, legatees, devisees and

of Charlie O. Johnson, deceased:
On reading the petition of Emma

last will and testament of the said
deceased, may be proved and allowed,
and recorded as the last will and

appear at the County Court to be held
in and for said County, on the 31st
day of May, A. D. 1916, at ten o’clock
A. M.. to show cause, if any there be.
why the prayer of the petitioner

One of the largest crowds that has ;
been in Loup City, except on some
special occasion, assembled here last j
Saturday. The principal cause of the
crowd was James Bartunek, who gave
away a fine set of heavy team harness
and a washing machine.
At 1:30 o’clock Mr. Bartunek as-1
sisted by M. C. Mulick and Dar Grow,
staged a foot race for thes mall boys,
with a coaster wagon as the prize for
the winner, the same being won b>*
Max Grow. The time was not givi n
Shortly before the drawing took
place an auction sale of summer lap
robes was held at the store. Earl
Keeler was the auctioneer in charge
of the sale and disposed of a goodly
number of dusters. The drawing was
held on the street in front of the store.
Claus Plambeck, of Ashton, held the
lucky number and got the harness.
Charles Placek held the number that
won the washing machine.
This is the second lot of premiums
to be given away by Mr. Bartunek and
the success of the plan is no longer
in doubt, as the size of the crowd on
Saturday was evidence of the interest
taken in them. Mr. Bartunek has an
enviable reputation as a harness ma
ker and the fame of his team har
nesses extends beyond the borders
of our state. It is highly probable
that he will make another offering in
the near future.

Owing to the fact that I am at all
times swamped with the cheap post
card work, (on which the customers
expects as good a photo as if he were
paying $4 or $5 pr dozen), I have de
cided to quit making post cards un
less the patrons are willing to pay me
for them in proportion to the other
work. The continued advance in the
price of photo materials, makes it
necessary for .me to advance my
prices accordingly.—Eisner Studio,

On Thursday, June 8, will be the
eighteenth annual opening day of
Jenner’s park and we feel confident
in saying that little by little and with
many ups and downs it is now con
1 ceded to be the most original, unique
and best kept park between Omaha
and Denver. The park always proves a
great surprise to the many visitors
and is a revelation that such a beau
tiful park can be found in so small a
It is useless to try to explain the
many interesting features, for every
few feet one goes something of inter
j est is to be seen.
The zoological features this yeai
l are greater than before and many new
improvements and attractions have
been added.
Let us all work together and make
the eighteenth annual opening of
Jenner’s park a grand success. Loup
City is justly proud of owning one
of the best parks in the state and
wishes the surrounding towns to
help celebrate the success of this
great enterprise.
