! J. S. PEDLER Chairman
i Dr. George Gibbons Yarrow, who
[lectures here during our Chautauqua,
had an annual experience in New’ York
not long ago.
■ He w’as advertised to lecture in
Hope House, on lower East Sde, New
York. He got more response than
any of them expected.
When the doors was opened, 300
little street urchins rushed in and oc
cupied the front seats. The crowd of
1 grown-ups blocked the street in from
of the building.
The man in charge asked Yarrow 5f
he thought he could manage such a
howling mob. To which he replied:
‘ Just leave it to me! I have six broth
ers, and am somew hat of a prize fight
!er myself.”
He did hold them alright, though he
had to referee four tights during his
short stay in the hall. At the close the
youngsters climbed up on the stage
and literally swarmed around him
to take his hand.
The audience was surprised; some
of the men were alarmed lest the
urchins would mob Mr. Yarrow.
Three of the men rushed up to the
platform and pulled the lads down,
believing that they meant harm to
The man in charge, Rev. John Ells
worth Fleming said: You will prob
ably never have an audience harder to
control than that mob of howling,
restless young ‘East Siders.’ ”
•The management of the Loup City
opera house has secured an attrac
tion of unusual merit to play here on
Monday night. July 31. “The Trail of
the Lonesome Pine” is the play and
is said to be very much like the popu
lar book of the same name.. The com
pany is composed of recognized a>
tists headed by Dainty Marie Muller
who will be seen in the part of Barn
foot June. Mr. Charles Bailey, late of
the Eva Lang Compamy, will have a
prominent part in the play. All special
scenery will be used as well as beau
tiful light effects, etc. This company i
will no doubt play to a packed house
as the book has been read by many
people here who are already awaiting
an opportunity to see the play. Popular
prices are announced. The manager j
of the opera house informs us that1
the curtain will not ring up until j
8:45 in order to give the many farm j
ers who want to see the play plenty j
of time to get here.

The band gave the first of a series '
of summer concerts in the band stand ■
| in the court house yard Monday even
ing and the same was much enjoyed
by the crowd on the streets. These
concerts will now be a regular Mon
day evening feature and in addition
Director Prichard announces that the
regular Friday evening practice will
be held in the band stand. In another
column will be found the program foi
next Friday evening. Some arrange
ments should be made for seating
those in attendance and several of
the carpenters of the city have volun
teered to donate their time to build
the seats if the business men of the
city will buy the lumber. We beleive
that there will be no trouble to obtain
material for the seats.

Anyone who has had an opportunity
to ride with A. C. Ogle in the new
Reo Six that he brought to town
some time ago has been treated to a
demonstration of speed and power
that is not to be equalled by any ear
of the price that the Reo sells at. As
concerns speed, it has enough to sat
isfy even the wildest of the spe’d
maniacs, making.sixty or more miles
per hour without any apparent effort
When it comes to power the cat
seems to be overstocked, as there
seems to be no place the car cannot
travel. Tuesday evening the writer
took a ride with Mr. Ogle and was
treated to an exhibition of the Six
climbing a sand hill on the Arcadia
road near the Garner farm. Not sat
isfied with making the ascent once
Mr. Ogle sent the car over the hill
three successive times, and came down
the steepest point in the hill, which
shows the brake control of the car.
Mr. Ogle has sold nine of these cars
this season and informs us that the^e
has not been a kick of any kind regis
tered from any purchaser. That he
himself has unlimited confidence in
the Reo is shown by the fact that he
has ordered twenty-five of the cars
for next season and expects to sal!
more than that number if it is pos
sible to obtain them. Anyone con
templating buying a car should at
least get a Reo demonstration before
making a purchase.
With the best wishes of this paper
and a host of friends, we are pleased to
announce the marriage of Ada Gale
Smith, daughter of Couny Judge, E. A
Smith, to Arthur L. Barnes, of Chap
pell. Deflel county. Neb., the ceremony
being performed this forenoon by the
Rev. L. V. Slocumb of the Methodist
Episcopal church at the parsonage in
the presence of relatives of the bride
and groom.
Mrs. Barnes was born and raised in
Sherman county, and it is with regret
that her many friends find that she is
going to leave Loup City. For the past
few years she has been one of the in
structors in the Loup City schools.
Mr. Barnes, as many of his friends
will remember, was at one time a resi
dent of Loup City, but last spring de
cided to become a wheat raiser on a
farm near Chappell, where they will
make their future home, leaving for
that place on the noon motor.
That they may prosper and have a
long and happy life is the wishes ol
their many Loup City friends.
Last Quarterly Conference of the
year will be held Friday afternoon at
2:30 o’clock.

Loup City was quite well represented
at Ravenna, Wednesday, to see the
ball game between Ravenna and

the names of\ those who attended.
Mike Chiiewski. who has been ser
iously ill at his home north of town
for some time, was brought to Loup
City last evening and taken to the Drs
Bowman hospital, it being deemed best
to have him wher he would have more
quiet and constant attendance.

The nine-months-old son of Mike
Palu was thrown from a hay rake on
Monday, alighting on his head and

Northwestern Bureau. Washington
D. C., July, 2G:—Jules Verne’s “Nauti
lus” was no better than a tug boat in
comparison to the Deutschland, which
has brought a million-dollar cargo
from Germany to the United States.
The Germans gave ample notice to
the world that they were going to do
this, and the captain of the great new
U-boat carried out his promise that he
would not run the blockade of the
British fleet, but would go under it.
The achievement is one of the most
remarkable in the history of naviR,»
tion. Robert Fulton’s Claremont was
no more of an object of curiosity at
its time, than is the new Deutsch
land, which avoids bad weather and
enemies by simply going down to the
desired depth, where it remains safe
ly for a day or a night, or any other
period. The Deutschland submerges
150 feet with comparative ease, and it
dips out of sight in a minute and a
half. In that way it has an armor pro
' tection a great deal more than that
made by the Bethlehm Steel, or anv
other of the interests that have waxed
fat by selling their goods to Uncle
Sam. There may be air-holes in the
armor plate sold, to the government,
there is always {hat chance. But 150
feet of salt water takes all the terrors
out of dreadnaughts and torpedo boat
destroyers, and other kinds of water
craft. Washington is liberal and
neutral enough to take off its hat in
commemoration of this great accom
plishment b the Deutschland.
Ripon's Extraordinary Request.
The established supposition that the
public treasury exists for the benefit
of individuals and the community that
| c an pull something out of it, may
have to be revised in view of the re
cent action of the city of Ripon, Wis
consin, which has made a request
through a resolution of the city coun
cil and commercial club and by a
petition of many of its citizens, ask
ing that $75,000 appropriated for its
public building, be diverted to the use
of the military aviation corps, or other
purposes of preparedness. Mayor L.
W. Thayer and Postmaster C. H. Ells
worth, of Ripon, who were asked for
a statement by the U. S. Press As
sociation, have declared that the en
tire course of the city of Ripon is
based upon patriotic reasons. So far
as known this is the first instance on
record where anybody has refused to
benefit from drawing on the federal
treasury. Ripon claims that by right
ir should have its public building, but
i. prefers that the amount it will cost
shall be, in substance, used as a con
tribution towards preparedness. A
numbsr of publications have con
tained editorials to the effect that
this is one case where “Pork barrel
legislation’’ has been discredited by
the citizens, intended to receive its
benefit. Ripon is a fine city and en
titled to a public building, and the
fact that the action of its citizens
may delay the erection of the same
does not in any way disprove the con
tention that public improvements
should be made throughout the coun
try for the uses of the government,
and for the benefit of the people of the
favored localities.
The Farmer’s Lot.
Congress has looked with favor up
on the measure to extend better faci
lities of credit to the farmers through
out the country, while the good roads
bill, made in the name of the farmer
but secured at the instigation of the
automobile users, will help to make
the idea of the farm more attractive.
In the hope that the percentage of
farmers owning their land may be in
creased. the federal government is
providing the necessary machinery
to make loans easier. This measure
may produce wonderful results, if it
accomplishes its purpose in making
it possible for men of small means
to divorce themselves from the fac
tory and the “regular pay roll.”
Uncle Sam's broad acres are hungry
for men and women who will pro
duce, rather than consume the natu
ral products of life.
Peary Changed His Mind.
Rear Admiral Robert E. Peary re
cently became a candidate for the
United States Senate from his home
state of Maine. When he entered the
fight it was with the announcement
that his sole idea was that if elected
he might aid in the cause of pre
paredness, which he considers the
only issue before the country today.
He expressed particular anxiety for
the building of an aeroplane coast
patrol and naval base in Maine. The
Peary candidacy lasted a whole week,

; ft
in which period the Admiral decided
to rest upon his laurels as the dis
coverer of the North Pole, in prefer
ence to adding to his autobiography
the distressing fact that he "also ran”
for the United States Senate. His
previous "one idea” resulted in the
discovery of the North Pole, and
thereby Admiral Peary made a won
derful dent in the world’s history.
Hut the man who seeks election now
adays under the apprehension that
because he has an enthusiasm for any
one single class of legislation, and
expressed the belief that nothing
else matters, is hound to find out just
as did Admiral Peary, that the Ameri
can voter has a much wider perspec
tive of the needs of humanity and of
the country. Admiral Dewey, as the
hero of Manila Bay, was the idol of
the American people, but when he at
tempted to secure the presidency
simply because he had directed a
few hours of wonderful fighting, ho
made the distressing discovery that
he wras “not in it.”And Peary was
likewise disappointed in discovering
that because he often went hungry
on the northern hikes was "quite
another matter" from that of repre
senting a state like Maine in the
senate. The only real hero who <-11 -
ceeded in landing a political office
was Lieutenant Hobson. Hohson pos
sessed qualifications as an orator of
rare ability, and by the use of his
splendid accomplishments as a “spell
binder” he talked the people of the
Alabama district into sending him to
congress, where he “made good" and
thereby secured several re-election/!
The Humanitarian Cult.
The Humanitarian Cult is publish
ing advertisings signed by its founder
and leader, Mischa Applebaum. on
behalf of 184,899 members. Just at
present the organization is buying ad
vertising space for the purpose of
sustaining views of the head of the
institution concerning the garment
workers strike of New York. Inci
dentally the copy gets in a few para
graphs about infantile paralysis and
then winds up with a line of poe ry
that breeds sweet sentiment. When
one reads such sentimental messages
to people, the query always is "Who
pays for the stuff?” Thomas W.
Lawson, 'in the days of sensational
articles of "frenzied finance” intro
duced this method of publicity, which
has recently been utilized by Henry
Ford in his campaign for peace, as
well as by organizations advocating
preparedness. Quite a number of big
business interests in the country
have also followed the plan in stating
their views with reference to public
questions before the American peo
ple. Their theory has been that they
desire to make a frank, open state
ment, and that by using advertising
space that their identity with the pub
lication will become firmly fixed.
Naturally the newspaper publishers
and the advertising representatives
have looked with favor upon this plan
of propaganda. Its success in reach
ing the desired aim has resulted in its
use by Mr. Applebaum, whose copy is
so extraordinary that it would per
haps find no space in print except
among display advertising.
Keeping the Same Men.
Most of the congressmen are strong
ly convinced that the present repre
sentatives should be kept in congress.
Former Speaker Cannon is frequently
quoted as favoring this proposition.
Either he or some other, one of the
old members, can be relied upon for a
speech along this line most any time
of the week. The theory is correct,
in that a man who has proper quali
fications and ability, is able to get
better results when he “learns the
road.” and the “ropes” and adds to his
acquaintance at the National Capitol.
Men grow in congress in the exact
proportion that they do in private
life. The rule, therefore, ought to be
the same: a good man in congress, or
a good man in the management of a
business, or in another capacity, be
comes more valuable as the result cf
his experience. But a mediocre con
gressman should be fired by the peo
ple who selected him with as mm h
freedom as would be applied in the
case of the "hired man” who made a
practice of showing up only on payday.
You cannot make a good congressman
out of an incompetent, simply by keep
ing him in a job for which he is un
Omaha, Neb., July 26—From *11
parts of the Unired States inquiries
are coming in regard to the National
Swine Show, which will be held in
Omaha during the first week of Octo

ever attempted, is stimulating great
interest in the swine raising industry.
It is also directing unusual attention
in the middle west, which provides the
very fundamentals of swine develop

That the show wll be successful
goes /without saying. Entries are
pouring in now which assure a most
representative show with the best
