RESULTS OF ELECTION
The election this year brought
forth many surprises and a good
many fellows are slightly dizzy yet
It is a toss up between Wilson and
Hughes, with Wilson appearing to be
in the lead at this time. Nebraska
has apparently gone democratic with
Neville and Hitchcock carrying the
state by safe margins. The dry
amendment carried by a very large
majority. Wilson carried Sherman
county by about 300 votes. In 1830
Sherman County gave the “wets” a
majority of 204 votes, this year the
“drys” carried the county by 232
Several spirited contests took place
on the county ticket, the race be
tween D. C. Grow and Garret Lorenz
being the closest, with Mr. Grow be
ing nine votes in the lead. A number
of the friends of R. H. Mathew wrote
in his name for county attorney. Mr.
Mathew was not aware of this ar
rangement and the number of votes
he received has not been recorded at
this time. L. L. Stephens was re
elected by a large majority.

near correct as is possible to obtain

trip a pleasure. We never saw so
many oysters and so much soup in ]
one bowl before. We had done our
best to develop a real farmer’s appe
titie for the occasion. When wre got
there the long table was full of folks
and we got nervous lest there should
not be enough chicken for us. But '
when we sat there and ate and ate j
as long as we could with good grace, j
and still they smilingly brought more
piles of chicken with the exhorta

was inexhaustible and quit. The

A WOMAN’S PAST
In this marvelous WTilliam Fox
photoplay, Nance O'Neil is cast as
Jane awley, a struggling authoress.
In the course of her efforts to dispose
of her manuscripts, she encounters
the editor of ,a famuso magazine,
Sterling by name, who gives her em
ployment. Jane falls in love with
Sterling, a thoroughberd rascal, and
the inevitable happens. Despite
Jane's pleadings, her scoundrelly em
ployer refuses to marry her. She
leaves him and soon afterward Wil
son Stanley, a former friend of Ster
ling's falls in love with and marries
her. Three years later, Stanley is
called to the Phillippines on govern
ment service. Jane and her little son
live with her father-in-law waiting
for the return of Stanley. One day
she meets her betrayer on the street.
He follows her home. Wilson’s father
discovers the couple in the garden in
a very compromising attitude and
turns Jane into the street. She re
turns to Sterling. Many years pass.
Stanley, who has returned home tries
in vain to find his erring wife. One
day, after he has given up hope he
sees her upon the street and follows
her to the squalid attic where she
lives in poverty writh Sterling. At
sight of the man who has ruined his
home, Stanley goes temporarily in
sane and in the terrific fight which fol
lows. stabs his rival to the heart. He
escapes, and Jane is arrested for the
crime. The evidence is overwhelm
ingly against her. The jury has pro
nounced its verdict, “guilty,” and the
doomed woman rises to receive her
sentence, when Providence steps in
and saves her from an unmerited fate.
Never before upon the screen has such
an intense and thrilling climax been

] A Good Introduction
j Goes a Long Way—
GOOD CLOTHES are good introductions any
where—in business and at social functions.
A man’s clothes form the measure of his
- personality among strangers. He is known by his
clothes as by the company he keeps. An ill-fitting
suit handicaps him as much as an introduction by
a disreputable acquaintance.
’ give you the same sort of introduction among strangers that
< an esteemed friend might. They inspire confidence, lend an
ease of manner, and compel respect. They are cut on gentle
manly lines for gentelmen’s wear. You can’t go rong with—
