We note, though, that some people
who get out on the street and bellow
the loudest for civic Improvement are
the ones who could best put in their
time cleatsing up their own hack yards.
We do not want to disparage the
preaching of < ivic improvement—far
fro* it. But we do want to advocate
practicing before preaching. The in
doient and indiUerent man sits in his
own rubbish and tells his neighbor
what to do. while the energetic and
prideful man goes ahead and does it
and ttiinks in hi* mind what a worth
less cuss the constitutionally “tired

Von Uerustorft was shedding tears
over the agony of parting from his
good American friends, his fellow con
spirators wer as busy as bees in Mex
ico. getting control of the finances of
that unhappy country and putting its
munitions plant on a firm basis. A few
thoughtful people forsaw some move
of the kind, but a* often as they open
ed their mouth* in warning they were
met with the parrot like cry of "jingo"
the last defense of an indefensible po
sitiun .Now we will pay the price of
our folly.
One by one our delusions are shat
tered. We used to hear the sage ad
vice of the economist tell us to “eat
dried apples for breakfast. drink
wa’er for dinner, and swell up for sup
per " But the Impossibility of any
economy in the menu can be seen
when we remember that apple* are
five cents each. Economy, fortunate-j
ly the fellow who joined that word
is dead, aud lias no nir-ans of knowing
what a delusion it is today.
If our forefathers could come back
to earth they would want to get right
off again. This is no place for them.
High prices would bankrupt them,
leg - hows would blind them, political
rottenness would stagger them, and
the greed of gold would nauseate
them. So, this is no place for our
forefathers, good, honest souls that
they were.
This, you know, is only “as the edi
tor sees it.”
The citizens of this community,
whenever possible, as it invariably
is. should buy the things that they
n< od from the local merchants. This
the spirit of co-operation which
will help the town to grow and in
time make it bigger anc a better mar
ket place.
We don't want you to pay more
here for what you can get cheaper
-omewhere else, but use your com
mon stnse. You know that no man
in a town a hundred miles away can
-end you what you order by mail,
pay the expenses of his catalogues,
and get a profit without charging you
more than your home merchant. Be
sides. you will have to wait many
days before you will get the merchan
dise ordered, you will have to send
vour money in advance and you will
un the risk of being stuck.
That is just plain every day com
ni.n sense; it's not advice. Local mrr

A peace society just prior to the
opening of congress advertised for
contributions advertising that $20,000
might save the country from the hor
rors of war. It now appears that one
of the objects of raising this fund was
to pay the expense of several thousand
mushy-minded persons to Washington,
where they were to parade and to
pester the representatives into refus
ing to act belligerently. The project
ors of the plan have read history to
slight advantage. Coxey’s army was
the first “petition in boots" to address
congress, and it is strange that its
fate should have been so soon for

all well attended, especially the Ora

seemed to enjoy the program.

will meet at 6:30 and Miss Amy Mc
llravy will be the leader. Subject,
“The Lord’s Day the Best Day.”
The Hastings Glee club certainly
gave a fine entertainment, and were
deserving of a better audience than
they had. however, we wish to thank
the Christian Endeavor society for
bringing them here, and hope we can
have them again sometime.
It is very encouraging to note the
increase in our regular church service.
Sunday school and B. Y. P. U. meet
The Sunday school was the largest
we have had this year. There was a
splendid attendance at B. Y. P. U. ser
vice, and much inerest manifested in
the Bible study.
The midweek prayer meetings are
being well attended, over thirty being
present last Thursday evening. The
mercy seat was built for sinners, and
sprinkled with the blood of Jesus for
sinners. Heb. 4:6. “Let us therefore
come boldly unto the throne of grace,
that, we may obtain mercy and find
grace to help in time of need.”
The B. Y. P. U. had a social gather

The subject Sunday morning will
be. “Christian Service.” B. Y. P. U. and
Bible study beginning at 6:30 and
preaching service at 7:30. A cordial in
vitation is extended to all.
The Easter services were well at
tended the church being crowded in
the morning. Let us get out of the
“stay-at-home” rut, if we are in it, and
be more regular in our attendance up
on the means of grace. There were 220
at Sunday school. The special offer
ing for missions was $7. The Epwortli
League contest closed last Sundav.
There were over 75 at the meeting.
The attendance has averaged about
50. Miss Calla Cole’s side is the win
ner. The race was close throughout
and the points at the close were. Miss
McFadden 1,755, Miss Cole 1,997. Miss
McFadden’s side will furnish a social
evening soon. We are very thankful
to these two young ladies and their
assistants for the splendid showing
the League has made through their
efforts. The good work will go on.
We gratefully acknowledge a bucket
of eggs, a basket of eggs and some
canned “pep” for Easter. The Ladles’
Aid society have received a barrel of
monogrammed dishes from Mr. and
Mrs. R L. Arthur. That is a magnifi
cent gift which our ladies are greatly
delighted over. The Woman’s Home
Missionary society met at the parson
age last week. It was a very enhusi
astic meeting. Three new members
were received. Mrs. Tracy is the presi
dent and is directing the work in a way
that fortells success. The ladies are
raising $50 by personal subscriptions
among themselves to support a moun
tain white girl. God’s blessing is on
such unselfish service. The Ladies
Aid society, always up and doing, held
an open 25c kensington at the home
of Mrs. Marcy Wednesday afternoon.
It was one of the nicest social events j
of the year. A fine program was given
and a delicious lunch was served..
One of the most interesting parts of
the Easter program was the Cradle
Roll reception. Miss Harriet Hayhurst,
superintendent of the Primary Depart
ment of our Sunday school was in
charge. Mrs. Albert Lee and Mrs.
Romeo Conger presented their babies
for membership. The children of the
primary department welcomed the
little tots by song and prayer. Why
don’t some more mothers bring their
j babies to such a service. It is a de
| lightful way to do. We will give way
! in the preaching service any time.
1 And by the way. Miss Hayhurst has
■ the nicest method of conducting the
work of the primary department, and
1 is the rnose efficient p, ;mary superin
tendent we have had in fifteen years,
j We grealy appreciate her faithfulness.
Dr. G. W. Isham of Kearney visited
at the parsonage Monday and conduct
1 ed the second and third quarterly con
I ference. The work shows a general
■ advance for the year thus far. Only
j five months till conference. Let us
| make them the best of the year in
| chrisian fellowship and service. The
twelve teams of leaders will meet at
the church this Friday night at eight
o’clock- for important business.
Next Sunday morning at 10:30 we
will have a very important gathering
of our church folks and will certainly
expect a full attendance of our peo
ple. There will be no preaching.. There
will be three speakers. Mr. Williams
will speak from the subject. "The
Stewardship of Possessions.” Mr.
Long on, “The Stewardship of Person
ality.” Mrs. Oltjenbruns on, “The
Stewardship of Prayer.” The pastor
will say something. Service at 8:00.

Farmers Till Railroads Right-of-Way.
A very practical conservation move
ment hos been undertaken by the Chi
cago. Burlington and Quincy Railroad
by inducing farmers along its right-of
way to cultivate, the vailroad’s land ad
joining their farms, over 600 country
dwellers took advantage of this plan
last year, paying the nominal fee of
$5.00 .which entitles them to utilize the
land adjoining theirs for an indefinite
period. This soil, which is usually
very rich because so long untilled, is
planted to alfalfa and the yield has
been as high as eight tons to the acre.
The average amount of land which
each man cultivates is three acres.
The arrangement lessens the weed
menace for the near-by fields and,
since alfalfa remains green a long
time, it lessens the danger of prairie
fires. At the same time the road is
saved the cost of moving the right-of
