The Value of Thrift
“To-day, with our national wealth approximat
ing one hundred and eighty-seven billions and al
most one hundred millions of people in the country,
we have about four billion seven hundred millions
in the savings banks, belonging to ten and a half mil
lion depositors. This may seem an amazing sum
of capital and number of depositors, but when a com
parison is made with other countries and a balance
is struck, it is found that the l nited States is near
the end of the list in the percentage of savers to pop
“With the frightful destruction and economic
waste throughout Europe, it is evident that after
the war these nations will need funds for recon
struction, and the United States will be called upon
to supply them; that for some time to come this
country will not be able to secure capital, as in the
past, from Great Britian and France for the pur
pose of carrying on new enterprises. The United
States must finance itself.

The shadow of exaggeration is
cast on an ad when
the appellation “Per
fection’' is applied to
the product; at least
that is our version of it.
So when we tell you
CLOTHES, we will
say what is our sincere
conviction — that they
are as near perfect as
modern manufactur
ing methods, alert
designing and fair-play
business policy can
make them.
Young men will find a
host of good-looking models
to select from and their
seniors will be sure to find their
suit made in a model in con
formity with their dignity and
correct in every detail. Their
price is moderate when their
value is considered.

Of "The Path Forbidden,” which
will be shown at the opera house on
the evening of May 18, the New York
World says: “So many of our plays,
books and motion pictures deal with
unpleasant subjects, such as vampire
women, and depict drinking and ca- ^
rousing by both men and women, that
it is refreshing to see a play like —
“The Path Forbidden." See it if you 2*
want to be thrilled. New Yorkers
have never seen more perfect artistry
than Octavia Handworth portrays in
this story of a girl who went right.”
The Northwestern contains a large
ad for the Palm Olive Soap Corn
many this week. This ad contains a
coupon-which wTill be accepted by
several dealers in Loup City as full
payment for one cake of Palm Olive
soap when the holder purchases
another cake at the regular price.
This is an opportunity to secure two
cakes of good soap for the price of
one. The Rexall Store, Wm. Graefe. ^
prop, and the Loup City Cash Store,
Wm. Lewandowski, prop., both ad
vertise Palm Olive soap in this issue
of the Northwestern. The 5, 10. 15
and 25 cent store also handies this
popular soap.
Mr. Hosier struck a snag in sprink
ling the strees this week, due to the
fact that part of the time he had no
water to sprinkle with. It has been
advocated several times that the
reservoir be enlarged and more wells
added, but nothing has ever been done
in that line. The question is, what
would happen to Loup City in case of
a serious fire, should it occur when
the reservior was about empty. We
believe that the condition of water
shortage should not be permitted to
exist and that steps should be taken
at once to secure a supply of water
sufficient for all needs. To further
neglect this important matter is tak
ing chances that are not necessary
W e hope to see an improvement in
the water system here very soon.
The Rosary at the opera house
theater on Tuesday. May 16. One of
the best productions of the year, the
7-reel Selig Red Seal Play. “The Ros
ary," will be presented. Seldom be
fore has the motion picture screen
shown such a finished production,
both from the dramatic and artistic
standpoint. Critics have declared it
to be one of that rare class which
can justly be called "masterpieces.”
The story, which has for its chief
characters Father Kelly, a priest, a
young man and his wife, is too well
known to need any retelling. It is suf
ficient to say that in film it does just
ice to both the novel and the play.
Wheeler Oakman, Frank Clark and
Eugenie Besserer are among the well
known favorites who appear in the
