‘•SOLDIERS OF THE SEA.”
Washington. April 18. — The great
American public is realizing now more
than ever the fact that our marine
uorps maintains separate and dis
tinct recruiting stations from the oth^r
branches of our national defense anc!
that although the marine goes to sea
he is a soldier—not a sailor—and does
not serve his country entirely on the
ocean wave, according to Major Gen
eral George Barnett, the command
ant of the “Soldiers of the Sea.”
The present crisis is causing many
patriotic young men to investigate
the different avenues in which they
may protect the freedom which they
enjoy, and those undecided as to w'ne
ther they would "do their bit" as a
soldier or a sailor are enlisting in the
marine corps as a "Soldier and Sailor,
Ten head of brood sows and one
span of young mares. Also have for

PATRIOTIC MEETING BIG SUCCESS
The patriotic meeting at the opera
house last Friday eveniag was attend
ed hv one of the largest audiences
that ever assembled in the building.
Every seat was occupied and standing
room was at a premium.
The meeting lasted nearly three
hours and was very interesting from
start to finish Speeches were made I
John W. Long. J. S. Pedler. R. P. Starr
and Aaron Wall. Mayor R H. Mathew
presided over the meeting in a very
pleasing manner. The speeches were
instructive and entertaining lamp City
s fortunate in having some of the best
talent in the state in that line. The
boys who have enlisted from Loup
City were represented by Cash Prick
ard. who made a short address, than?;
ing Loup City for its splendid demon
drat ion and making a few other ap
propriate remarks. Several Loup City
boys have enlisted ip Company M. Ne
braska National Guard at Grand Is
land. in whose honor the fine publi.
demonstration was given.
One of the splendid features of th'■
meeting was the singing and the music
given by the Loup City hand under
the leadership of Prof. R X. Prichard
Four veterans of the < ivil war and a
number of veterans of the Spanish
Amerioan war were present and lev !
ed enthusiasm to the meetings. The
hall was \profusely decorated w-h
flags and bunting.
Delegations^-from a number of th
neighboring towns were present and
also Second Lieutenant Mast, of the
IT. S. regular army, who has been her
getting enlistments for the arnn
Lieutenant Mast stated that it was the
best patriotic meeting he had ever at
tended and said that if every town was
as patriotic as Loup City he would
have no- trouble hi securing all !h
recruits he needed
The boys went to Grand Island Sun
day and took the examination. Cash
Prichard. Irvin Rowe. Lelon Lofholm.
Clarence Peterson. Harold Hancoi k
and Dwight "Willis passed the exami
nation and Wm. Curtis was rejected
M. H. Worlock left Monday. Lloyd
Bulger. Tuesday and Jas. Gilbert. Wed
nesdav for Grand Island to take the
examination and all three were ac
cepted. This makes nine Loup CPy
boys who have joined Company M
and we are glad to see so many show
ing their patriotism and sticking to
gether by going to the same company.
R H. Mathew and H. E. Willis took
the Loup City boys over to Ravenna.
Sunday so they could take a train
to Grand Island and be there on time
j for company inspection. The roads
i were very wet and slippery and it was
a hard trip.
About two weeks ago E. J. Maus. of
the Independent garage, left for Lin
coln. telling his many friends here
that he was going on business and
would return in a day or so. Up to
the time of going to press Mr. Maus
has not returned and judging from
messages received here by some of his
friends we are inclined 4o believe that
the trip was most important as they
read that he was married last Thurs
day to Miss Lucille Johnson of that
j city. While the young tadv comes to
us a stranger we feel that she must
be a very refined and highly esteern
, ed young lady to attract the atten
tions of Mr. Maus and we join many
others in extending to her a glad hand
and in welcoming her to our city Mr.
Maus is one of our most promising
' young business men and we are glad
to join the many friends in wishing
them many years of happy wedded
, life. *

1 NATURE CURES. THE DOCTOR
TAKES THE FEE.
There is an old saying that “Na
ture cures, the doctor takes the fee.''
but as everyone knows you can help
Nature very much and thereby en
able it to effect a cure in much less
time than is usually required. This is
particularly true of colds. Chamber
lain’s Cough Remedy relieves the
lungs, liquifies the tough mucus and
aids in its expectoration, allays the
cough and aids Nature in restoring the
system to a healthy condition.

GERMANS WERE SUSPECTED BUT
North Loup. Neb.. April 18—North
Loup was very much excited early in
the week when it was discovered that
the flag which had been floating from
the staff on the top of the school house
for the past two months had been tak
en down and no trace of it had been
left. Everybody guessed what had be
come cf it and surmised that certain
individuals had appropriated it unto
themselves. But as there were too
many guesses and as none of them
seemed to be the correct one a purse
was raised and the Albion bloodhounds
were sent for. They arrived late Mon
day night and were immediately put
to work. The trail was taken from the
roof of the building and lead to where
I he guilty parties evidently entered an
I automobile. Later the trail was again
I aken up about a block east of where
it was lost and from then on it w
clear enough. Suspicion began to point
very clearly toward certain parties
tnd in the morning two young men
were summoned to apt ear before th*>
<hool board and a few others and
stive an account of themselves. They
finally pleaded guilty and told tin ir
story. It was only a foolish prank on
•he part of some young people who
had no thought of the seriousness o
their offense—who had no thought
that in these times sympathizers with
a foreign power with whom we are at
war might be accused—who had no
'bought of the tempest they were
stirring up. One member of the part'
was a high school student, one was a
young man of the village and the other
two members of the high school fa^ -
ulty. Xo one wishes to have the names
of the guilty parties published be
