I ---- I
Cp to the present time the country
i as a whole has been practically sleep
; :ng with regard to the war. But we
i will awake with a sudden start when
'the selective draft begins to draw our
town sons and brothers to the trenches
j There will be no lack of interest from
then- on. Once thoroughly aroused to
[ the seriousness of the situation, the
1 American people will wade in with
j sleeves up and stick until the last
j dog is hung.
Rev. H. S. French and wife arrived
here from Denver. Colo., to visit with
Mr. French's parents. Mr. and Mrs. C
H. French and Mrs. French's brother.
Willis. Holcomb and wife, and other

j Merritt Memorial M. E. church, one of
] the leading churches of Denver. Both
Mr. and Mrs. French wt-re born and
raised in Sherman county. Mr. French
worked here at the printers trade in
both the Northwestern and Times of
(ices many years ago. This is the first
visit to Loup City in three years.
The graduation exercises held at the
i opera house last Thursday evening
; was attended by a large crowd and
, the speaker “Sunshine" Dieterieh of
Lincoln, delivered a very pleasing ad
dress, though not vei^ forceful nor in
structive. being mostly in a humorous
vein. The class consisted of twenty
three young men and women, whose
future doings were chronicled in last
week's Northwestern. G. W. Collipriest
presented the diplomas and Superin
tendent Bitner made a few well chosen
remarks to the class before the presen
tation of the diplomas. Jack Amick
| won the class honors.
Jack Amick is now working for
! Unde Sam. having accepted a position
i with a government surveying outfit
I that are surveying the railroads of
i the state. Jack went to Sargent Mon
day night to take up his new duties
I From there he will go on the main
| line of the Burlington and work up
j through Wyoming and Montana. The
! position pays $fiO a month and all ex
I penses, including washing, etc., and
j offers every opportunity for advanee
j ment. Jack will make good and we
S expect to see him in the very near fu
| ture, advanced to a high position. The
j job was offered several Loup City
youths, before Jack was offered it.
but they would not accept it, probably
not liking the idea of getting so far
away from their mammas.
There are a few rich young men who
are deserving of special commenda
tion. At the reserve officers’ training
camp in Illinois it was discovered that
quite a number of young men with
! out means were in danger of having
to return home for lack of funds to
continue their course of instruction.
Hearing of this, the young men of
wealth in the camp quietly dug down.
I handed a large sum to the mess of
| fleer with strict injunctions of secrecy
as to names, and as a result a number
of brilliant young men of limited
means will continue to serve their
! country- This action is quite in con
trast to that of the long haired Wil
| lies who tear around the country with
'American flags conspicuously display
j ed on the front of their automobiles
PARK OPENING JUNE 7.
Park opening will be on Thursday,
lJune 7. this year. Mr. Jenner has been
1 working all winter and spring in mak
i ing improvements at the park and the
j visitors at the park this spring are
I all of the opinion that it is in better
J condition than ever before. Pretty
! flowers and foliage are in abundance.
The collection of curios has been ad
ded to and many articles of great in
terest are on exhibit for the edifica
tion of the visitors. Many new animals
and birds have been added to the col
lection, or menagerie, at the park.
Bigger and better even- year is evi
dently Mr. Jenner’s motto in regard!
to the park, and as a place for rest
and recreation it cannot be excelled
in any town the size of Loup City.
On park opening day music will be
j furnished by the Loup City band all
j day. Dancing in the evening, and vari
' ous sports and contests will be con
ducted during the day. All the sur
rouding towns will be well represent
ed here on park opening day and
something will be doing all the time
to entertain the crowd.
OLD RESIDENT IS DEAD
William Henry Hughes was born ir
Scott County. Indiana. May 12, 1m
He moved to Iowa at the age of eight
years. There lie grew to manhood and
was united in marriage to Alice E.
Bowers. September 10. 1S71. Mr. and
Mrs. Hughes moved to Clay county.
Nebraska, in the fall of 1S72 where
they homesteaded and continued to
reside until April. 1902 when they mov
ed to their farm at Wiggle Creek. Lat

Mr. Hughes was taken ill on the
stree last Saturday afternoon. He
was taken home and the doctor called,
but love and skill were powerless to
prolong his life and he passed away
Sunday morning May 27. 1917. aged
09 years and 15 days.
The departed leaves to mourn his
loss; his wife and seven children, also
one brother and four sisters. The chil
dren are: Mrs. Nancy A. Burt of Loup
City. Mrs. Leora A. Wilson of Kimbal.
Nebraska. Mrs. Minnie J. Pielstici-:
of Glenville. Nebraska. Lester, who
died in infancy. James W„ who died
June 6. 1904. Homer AY., of Loup City.
.Airs. Emma C. Daddow. Airs. Clittie
AI. MeFadden and AYinifred AA'.. oi
l/oup City. All the children and the
brother were present at the funeral.
Brother Hughes joined the Aletho
dist Episcopal Church when he was
fourteen years of age and through the
years has continued to live a true
and loyal follower of the Christ. He
was also a member of the Ancient Or
der of United AA’orkmen.
It is not required that we should
multiply words concerning one so
widely and favorably known in this vi
ciuity. A'ou hear it in the homes, over
the phone, on the street and in the
church. "I have great respect for Air.
Hughes." The main thing after all is
that he lived daily so that he would
be ready to go when the summons
came. And when it came so unexpect
edly he was ready to answer the call
to “come up higher..". AVe could not
afford to lose him. but our loss is hea
venly gain. Air. Hughes and his wife
have been among the most faithful at
tendants upon the means of grace, and
while he will be most truly and sadly
missed from the home, he will be
greatly missed from his accustomed
place in tha house of God.
And to the bereaved loved ones:
How blessed is a saving faith i;i
Christ in this hour. \\Te know you fe •'
in your hearts the assurance that tin
heart of your heavenly father and the
hearts of the great company of peo
pie who have gathered to expre..
their sympathy and respect, go on
to you in your great grief. You mnurr
not as those who have no hope. As
the months and years go by these sons
and daughters will feel just a littl
taller, just a little prouder because of
a worthy father’s love and service.
His life and love will touch and soften
the rugged pathway of your life until
for you also, it will be sunset in this
world and sunrise in the great eterni
tv. Truly this is an ideal sunset at the
close of nearly three score years and
ten. God has been \;ery gracious to
this home. Husband and wife liavt
been spared to each other through all
these years with good health and
good success in life. They have
brought up their children in the Chris
tian way and have seen them com
fortably established in their own
homes, most of them not far away
AA'hile we say good-bye for a little
while with regret, yet it is with rejoic
ing; knowing that this good man has
entered into an inheritance, incorrup
tible. undefiled and that fadeth not
away, and that his loved ones have
the comforting presence of the Saviour
in their hearts and homes. The funeral
services were held at the house and
at the Alethodist church. Tuesday. May
29. 1917. at 2 o'clock, conducted by
'he pastor. A’incent R. Beebe. The
fioral tributes were very beautiful.
The selections sung by the quartet
were very comforting. The body was
laid to rest in A’erduette cemetery at

signs, or “silent policemen" which
have been placed in the street inter
sections. Concrete bases will be erect

the looks of them greatly, as they are
too low without the bases.

BIG FIRE AT ROCKVILLE
Rockville was the scene of a very
bad fire last Friday morning when the
big general store of L. C. Weaver was
completely destroyed. Mr. Weaver and
; family occupied rooms at the rear of
[ the store and saved very little of their
I household furniture. The building was
owned by Mr. Woten. The building
was insured as also was the stock of
goods, the amount of insurance we
; cannot state, as we have not been in
! formed as to the amount. The post
office was in the store find was also
completely destroyed with all the
mail that was in the building at the
time. The cause of that fire is not
known. Mr. Cords, who lives across
the street first discovered the fire be
tween three and four a. m. and
awakened the Weavers, who were
asleep. The fire had gained great
headway when discovered and it was
too late to save any of the stock of
goods, most of the work being direct
ed towards saving the adjoining build
ings and getting out what household
goods as was possible.
Mr. Weaver will undoubtedly start
up again in business at Rockville and
no doubt a new building will soon be
erected on the site of the old one. as
it is one of the best locations in town.
A heavy rain commenced to fall dm
ing the fire and this made it much
easier to keep the fire from spreading
Otherwise there might be a different
story to tell.
