LOUP CITY WINS GAME
Local Team Puts Up Classy Game
Against Farwell Sunday.
It is certainly a satisfaction to
chronicle the fact that the home
team, after quite a layoff, has again
been able to win a game. It was a
good game, too, the score being 2 to 1.
The boys went into the game full of
pep and Farwell would not have had
a run but for an error of the umpire.
A high wind was blowing and carried
a fair ball outside of the foul linn,
but not until Umpire Lay had made
his decision and called it a fair ball,
as it undoubtedly was at the time of
This run went for a homer and the
Farwell aggregation failed to come
anywhere near scoring the remainder
of the game. The Farwell boys are
a clean lot of ball players and it is
hoped that these teams may meft
again and before the size of crowd
that good ball playing mrits.
STRANGER THAN FICTION.
Just why is it that some people al
ways oppose the industrial develop- i
ment of this town and community?
Why is it they use their influence
to throttle every scheme that promi
ses for the upbuilding and commer
cial advancement of the community?
What have they to gain personally
through such a course?
True, they would pay a few cents i
additional in taxes, while their proper

One live citizen who has given the
subject considerable thought sug
gests that people who oppose local
commercial advancement have a sel-'

fear a loss of personal prestige
through the brining into our midst
of new blood and new industrial en
terprises. He believes the reactionists
can see a possible waning of their
power through the introduction of new
and up-to-date methods, and that

This may or may not be true, but
the fact remains that some hidden in

expansion of this town and this com-!

wide awake citizen tc seek a solution
to the mystery and put an end to it.
This town should advance with the
rest of the state and nation, and to
do so we must have the loyal cooper

An innovation in prizes at the

these conditions. All breeds may
compete. The litter is to consist of
not less than six pigs, farrowed after
August 1, 19X6. The exhibit will not
be judged from a breed standpoint
but from its uniformity and genera!
attractiveness. Points that will be

their general condition, and the way

A PLEASING EXHIBIT
The Busy Bee Hat Shop and Pizer
& Co., entertained the ladies of
Loup City and vicinity last Friday
and Saturday, the occasion being the
annual fall opening of millinery and
ladies' ready-to-wear apparel. The
store was tastefully decorated and a
grafanola discoursed music to the
guests. All of the newest and up-to
date fancies in the millinery line j
were on display and a large number j
of sales were made. The showing of j
fall suits was extremely strong and I
the line will appeal to all who wish
to be clothed in the latest style.
Miss Froehlicb ht^f^an r enviable
place in the millinery art. her crea
tions appealing to all who view them,
and even a mere man cannot help
but admire them, although he is short
on the necessary vocabulary to ex
press his appreciation. We predict
a most profitable fall and winter
trade for these two firms.
RESOLUTENESS MEANS PEACE.
The outstanding facts in Mr. Hughes'
discussion of foreign relations are
these: He will keep us out of war if
possible, but the peace that he values !
is peace honorable to the nation; his!
concern is the United States of Ameri
ca; his just demands upon foreign gov
ernments will be made as a matter of
right and they will be made in terms
unmistakable; his aim will be to pre
vent violations of American lives and
property; he will exhibit the might of
the country in time to avert humilation !
and disaster, not when the damage has
been done and a show of force is a
vain parading of unused strength.
Mr. Hughes will not “butt-in” a neigh
bors affairs, but if he is compelled to
adopt forceful measures in the interest I
of the United States he will not at
tempt to excuse a just action as in!
behalf of some phantasy, nor will he
withdraw before his mission has been
Resoluteness means peace, not war,!
says Mr. Hughes. Mere discussion
accomplishes nothing, as has been
proved by the failure of Mr. Wilson’s
interminable exchanges of notes with
those who have been guilty of aggres
sions against us. We know the char
acter of Mr. Hughes. There can be
no doubt that when he takes the reins
of government from the feeble hands
of Woodrow Wilson there will be an
end of that condition which has
brought shame upon our peace-loving j
nation, shame that such peace as is !
ours has been bought at the price of
national honor. — Pittsburgh-Gazette
THE WAY IT WORKED.
A small Iowa town had three gen
eral stores. One was the acknowl
edged leader, but all were enjoying
a good business because the town was
an important trading point for a
large number of farmers and their
families. The leading merchant soon
outgrew the town, however, and
moved to a larger place. The other
two stores rejoiced because they felt
it would mean more business for them
to have their chief competitor leave.
But it did not work out that way, be
cause these two men did not hold the
trade that the third had attracted to
the town, and consequently each of
the two stores left soon began to
show a decrease in sales over months
when there were three of them.—
With the regular army and the Na
tional Guard on the border protecting
us from the raids of a horde of blood
thirsty bandits we can not refrain from
remarking that this is a mighty inop
portune time for capital and labor to
come to grips. Patriotism and com
mon sense should prevail until we are
free from the danger that menaces us

PICNIC IS A BIG SUCCESS
Parade Not as Large as Last Year,
But Well Represented.
Jimmy Conger’s fourth annual pic
nic of his rural route patrons was
held last Monday and was a success
from start to finish. The event was
not staged on as large a scale as last
year, but there were many novel
floats in the parade, the theme of the
same being hard times.
According to Mr. Conger, there
were nearly 500 took dinner at the
park at nopn. The afternoon enter
! tainment consisted of various amuse
ments, together with a broncho bust
ing stunt and a ball game. Every
one seemed to have an enjoyable
time and no doubt this novel picnic
and entertainment will continue to be
a Labor Day feature in Loup City as
long as Jimmy Conger continues to
dispense mail on route two.

WILL PUSH NEBRASKA’S CLAIMS.
A land bank for Nebraska, with
both Omaha and Lincoln putting the
state to the front, was the agreement
reached by committees from the two
cities at a meeting held this week.
Both cities are to urge their claims
and if it develops later that either city
has a decided advantage over the
other, then both cities are tq support
that one. The meeting was held in
the Commercial club rooms. Omaha.
Nebraska is receiving a great
amount of favorable publicity in the
campaign for a Land bank. Its agri
cultural resources are being exploited
from one end of the country to the
other, and what state has beeter re
sources to exploit. Its cities are also
being given recognition.
The hearing in Omaha. September.
18, when the Land bank board will be
here, will crystalize sentiment toward
the state and give the members of the
Board an eye full of Nebraska and
her wonderful production.

A SUCCESSFUL SESSION
Some investigation show certain
tacts concerning the teachers' insti
tute just closed at Loup City that are
of general interest.
One of the most significant things
is the increase in. ;he number of
teachers enrolled over that of a few
yeasr ago. Only five years ago the
number enrolled was seventy, while
last week the enrollment reached one
hundred and twenty. It is evident
that there has been an increase in
the number of teachers required for
the schools of the county and certain
ly a great increase in the per cent
of teachers attending the institute.
The large attendance at the differ
ent sessions was an evidence of the
general interest of the teachers in the
work, and the close attention given to
the County Superintendent and in
structors was unquestionably a sign
of good professional spirit. There is
no better sign of growth in efficiency
on the part of a teacher than the
growth in professional interest. Aud
the coming together of so large a num
ber with the common purpose of im
provement, creates enthusiasm and in
spiration that results in better teach
ing and better work on the part of
To bring about the conditions seen
at the institute there must be a lead
er, and the county superintendent
of Sherman county has proved him
self equal to such a work. He was
educated in the high schools of Iowa.
South Dakota, Wesleyan, and in nor
mal schools in South Dakota and Ne
braska, earning the degree of Bache
lor of Science. He taught in county
schools and served several years as
principal and as superintendent of city
schools. His large experience in
school work leads him to know the
problems that confront the teachers,
and to help them in organization,
methods, and management. His lead
ership since coming into the office
has made itself felt, and teaeheis
look to him for help in the experi
ences that arise in school life. We
are fortunate in having at the head
of the schools of Sherman county a
man of such training and ability.
The instructors were selected with
reference to preparation and com
petency along special lines. Miss
Alice J. Henigan, instructor in pri
mary methods, was educated in the
high schools and at the University
of Nebraska, and in a special school
for primary supervision in Chicago.
She is now supervisor of primary work
at Lincoln, Nebraska, and is recog
nized as one of the best in the state.
The teachers were enthusiastic in
praise of her methods in penmanship,
primary reading, and primary English.
Superintendent J. F. Duncan, of
Osceola. Nebraska, was educated in
the high school, and at the University
of Nebraska, from which last insti
tution he graduated with the degree of
Bachelor of Arts. He had experience
in teaching country schools and was
for years well known superintendent
of city schools before going to Osceo
la where he has organized the most
perfect system for normal training
that is to be found in any city school
in Nebraska. His instructon in arith
metic. reading and pedagogy was well
Superintendent J. H. Burwell is
well known to the teaching profession
in this county. He began his educa
tion in the public schools of Wiscon
sin and is a graduate of the Peru nor
I mal, with the degree of Bachelor of
j Pedagogy and of Avalon College with
| the degree of Master of Science. He
i has had experience both as city super
intendent and as institute instructor.
He proved proficient in orthography,
English and school management.
C. W. Wood, of Aurora, Nebraska,
talked to the teachers on Monday af
ternoon on the subject "Mistakes” and
at night on the subject “Picked up on
The Road.” His lecture which was
made up in part of original verses,
was an inspiration to all. His experi
ence on the road have given him more
than ordinary insight into human life
and a large sympathy for his fellow
men. He is well worth hearing.
It was found that some who do not
expect to teach were enrolled to have
the benefit of the institute work. A
few were enrolled from other counties.
The Sherman county institute this
year was a great uplift for the edu
cational interest of the county, and
Superintendent Currier certainly has
reasons to feel satisfied with school
conditions of the county.
VISIT THE HALL COUNTY FAIR.
The people of Loup City and vicini
ty can rely upon the representation
made by Grand Island with reference
to the Central Nebraska fair to be
held in that city on September 12-15
inclusive. The Central Nebraska Ag
ricultural Association s composed of
several hundred farmers of Hall coun
ty and business men of Grand Island,
and is directed by a board of nineteen
consisting of one director from each
precinct in the county. While this
will be only the third annual fair by
this association, the organization owns
its own eighty-acre tract of land upon
which the fair buildings are located,
has always been able to pay all of
its premiums promptly, and the man
agements has been diligent in keep
ing more and more clear of conces
I sions of a gambling nature and enter
: tainment of the doubtful class. There
I is nothing of the fake nature about
j the fair, everything being conducted
on the absolutely square deal basis.
1 as regards the payment of prizes, rac
i ing moneys, and the other amuse
, ments offered. Last year’s fair in
! Grand Island was regarded as one of
the best in the state, and the direct
ors set fprth that this year's exhibition
will eclipse the last.
Arrange to spend at least one day
at the fair at Grand Island.

ers last Saturday to inspect her tall

eagerly inspected the showing and
expressed their admiration of the of
fering. Mrs. Prichard enjoys a large
patronage and will undoubtedly have
a good season in this line.
