COUNTY SUPERVISORS MEET

parts of the county the south and
west sides being strongly represented.
The board faced a big pile of business
and quickly got to work and cleaned
The county levy for the coming year
was made 15 mills, which includes 5
mills for the court house fund. The
state levy this year is 8.4S mills. 2.38 j
mills higher than last year's levy.
Two federal aid roads were estab
lished, one running through Sweet- :
water. Hazard and Litchfield, which j
connects with federal aid roads in ad
joining counties. The other federal
aid road commences at the Valley
county line, running through Loup
City and Rockville, across the river at
Rockville to Sodtown in Buffalo coun
ty. The federal government and the
state each pays one half for the build
ing of these roads, the only expense the
county being put to is the mainten
ante of these roads after being made. |
The federal aid roads proposition
will be a fine thing for Sherman county.i
as many of our roads now are hardly fit :
to be called such.
Letter From Frank Janulewicz
Syracuse, N. Y, Aug 4. 1917. !
My Dear Sister Lenora:
1 received your letter this week and
will answer it now because 1 haven't j
much time nowaday. I sleep in the
day time and at night I go to town and
stay up all night. 1 am a military po
liceman and have to watch some of the :
soldier boys and see that they don’t get !
into mischief of any kind. If any of
them cut up too much I have to take
them to the police station. I like this ;
job very well. I have been on the job ;
for two weeks now and I surely look :
like a policeman. We haven't had any
rain for a long while and it is very
hot here. Lots of the boys are play
ing out from the heat of the sun.
! When they go on a hike sometimes
! there is two or three down before they
get home, that is the infantry boys. !
One of our boys was killed the other
day by his horse kicking him in the
; side. He was a nice boy. well liked by
all. 1 have had some more pictures
taken and will send some of them
home, because 1 think that I will quit
having my picture taken. Think that
you must have about a dozen now.
Have you had any rain? I would like
to see you have a good rain so you
would raise a good crop of corn so us
boys would have plenty to eat. We
will need lots of grub to make good
men out of us Say, do you know
anything about Johnnie, whether he is
in Arizona or not ? If you know please
let me know, so I can write to him and
find out whether they are going to
France or not. I have heard tiiat the
sixth field artillery have left for France
but we have gotten ?o that we don't
believe everything that is said.
You ought to see the bunch of *ol
diers that are here now There are
17.000 of us hcre You can take the oar
and come over and u if it isn't
too far This will he all this time and
will try to do better next time, so

CHAUTAUQUA STARTS SUNDAY
The Loup City Chautauqua will com

for five days. The Chautauqua plat
form has ever been one cf our most
Since the memorable April 2. 1917
when the •United States entered the
great war to fight for Freedom, and
world wide democracy, there have been
no pacifists on the Redpath-Horner
Chautauqua platforms. The maximum
of service that can be rendered, the |
height of the finest loyalty, the expres
sion of American Meals, the Inchest
type of patriotic service which may
be reached, form th chief purpose of
the 1917 Redpath-Horner Chautauqua
Yet. besides the striking message?
of great orators this seasotj. a large
share of the programs are bringing
happiness, entertainment and insnL-n
tion. The Chautauqua is for the entire
community. While, as in all great
public movements, there are some who
take a leading part and through whose
efforts the bigger and. better things art
made possible for the community. :bf
success of the Chautauqua depends on
the patronage of tb masses and th?'
quality of the progtims offered. Suf
fice it to say. in refejenee to the latter
that in all the eleven years Chares F.
Horner has been arranging Chautauqua
programs, he never more enthusias
ticallv and heartily recommended any
program to the cities on this great cir
cuit than he does the one for 1917.
The Chautauqua comes at a very
good time this year to enable most of
the farmers throughout the county tc
attend, and a record b-eaking atten
dance is expected.
Following is the program, one of the
best that has ever been brought to

“JOY DAY" AT CHAUTAUQUA.

entertainers When the National Quar

singers and entertainers in the coun

last grand climax is reached the au
dienc-e is held spellbound, is brought
to the highest state of patriotic dent
onstration, or is convulsed in laugh

patriotic melodies, the songs which
bring back cherished memories—the
solos, the duets, the readings, the hu
morous “stunts"—and the versatility
of these great entertainers. Fine voi

and there is plenty of humor—real

A number of Loup City business men
attended the big tractor meet at Fre
mont last Wednesday and report hav
ing had the time of their lives. They
left Loup City at midnight in two autos
and went to Grand Island, making the
trip in one hour and forty-five min
utes. They took the 3:15 a. m. train
there for Fremont, arriving there about
5 a. m.. having all day to take in the
show leaving Fremont in the evening
for Grand Island and coming back to
Loup City in autos. The party consist
ed of ten men as follows: O. S. Mason
W. F Mason. M. C. Mulick, Chas. Bass.
Aaron Wall. Albert Johnson. A. C. Ogle,
E. J. Maus, R. H. Mathew and C. C.

were on th ground and 125 tractors
plowed a 640 acre field, starting at

2:30 p. m., just four hours time.
THE GIANT AWAKE
We have but recently witnessed an
event in this country the like of which
the world has never before seen—at
least, the world of our knowledge
We have witnessed the entrance into
the ranks of a nation’s fighting men, of
ten million soldiers, waiting for the call
to the colors. We see today an army
of nearly two million men actually un
der arms, equipped and assembled
ready to do or die in their county’s
It is an amazing sight. America, the
peaceful^ America, the cradle of toler
ation, the nursery of justice and right
—America in arms and springing to th
And the strange feature of the case
is, it has astonished even Americans
themselves. We had been so long ac
customtd to hear ourselves referred U
as a sleeping giant that we had comi
to so regard ourselves. We had thoughi
that the affairs of the outside work
concerned us not. and that we were
ufficient unto ourselves
But today sees the giaut awake. .A
little groggy, it is true, but frapidiv as
similating the power and might that
will sweep everything before him wher
once he gets his stride It also sees
him shorn of his provincialism and tak
mg his rightful place in the world—a
man r* power and might among men of
power and might.
And being awake, we find confront
ing us one of the most stupendous
tajj-ks that ever confronted a people
We find ourselves the probable decid
ing factor in a world war. the balance
of power that shall make this earth
a safe place of abode for all men—a
world in which right, and not might,
And with this great task nefore us
we are going about our preparations as
befits a people who have not only con
fidenee in their own powers but a full
appreciation of the magnitude of the
task as well. While we have not pro
claimed it broadcast, yet deep within
the hearts of our people there is a
firm determination that the sword shall
not he sheathed until the cause of hn
manity has triumphed over the forve.
of oppression and tyranny. There i.
but one sentiment heard from :he lip.
of all loyal people: “We must win."
Therein lies the meaning of the quiet
deep, but deadly purpose of our people
We must win for humanity's sake.
And when were our people ever called
upon to perform a task for humanity,
that they failed?
Our millions who have answered the
call have come cheerfully. They hav*
stepped forward with the fullest ap
preciation of the work before them, but
also with supreme confidence in their
ability to perform that task. This is
the spirit that conquers, and it will con
quer in this instance
Soldiers of America never in history'
could it be more truly said tiiat '"the

The pastor will preach at 10:30 Sun

all need, especially during war times

Because of the Chautauqua there will
be no evening preaching service, nor.
prayer meeting on Thursday evening.
However, the Christian Endeavor

G. Taylor will be the leader.
The pastor returned from Kansas
City Monday evening and will preach
Sunday morning at 10:45 using as a
subject. "The Christian Experience.”
The obtaining and retaining of a de
finite Christian experience and the com
forts and blessings of such an exper
ience will be discussed. It will be of
special help to all who have been but
a little while in the Christian way. We
are very thahkful to all who helped to
make the services so successful during
our absence. Epworth League at 7
o’clock led by Chris Hansen. Topic.
‘‘The Father's Care for Us.” The
pastor expects to preach at Wiggle
Creek at 3:30 o’clock.
THE CHILDREN’S CIRCUS COMING.
The Children’s Circus always proves
one of the biggest attractions of the
entire Chautauqua. Only the most com
petent capable and attactive super
visors are secured for the children’s
work and the results are most bene
ficial. Besides the instruction and su
pervised play, the children put on
their own big circus the morning of
the last day. and the ’’stunts” are us
ually much more complicated and bril
liant than one would imagine. There
is a carefully laid plan carried out
by the supervisors and a brilliant re
sult is achieved by the children in
their short five days’ work.
Captain Clements received a nies
sage this morning permitting him to re
cruit men for Company “I" until fur
ther order. He still needs 47 men to
complete his company to 150 men. war
strength. He has no orders that would
permit him to receive any of the men
who have been drafted at this time.—

A TIP TO UNCLE SAM.
When we were a boy on the farm a
part of our duties consisted in "shpi
ping the hogs." These festive ot a
sions always developed among the herd
a number of super-hogs who, not con
tented with receiving their share of
the food, insisted upon getting into the
trough with all four feet. It then de
volved upon us to sieze a good tou-'h
barrel stave and belabor them upon
the snout until they desisted from their
hoggish ambitions, and left the trougn
unobstructed for the rest to feed.
Of course this process developed a
terrific amount of squealing from^the
offendere. which would have led one,
unacquainted with the situation, to be
lieve that murder was being commit
ted. But to the initiated it indicated
only that the rest of the herd was get
ting a square deal.
With the rapid development of this
animal prototype in practically all lines
of business, it occurs to us that this
is the proper time for Uncle Sam to
grab a barrel stave and get busy. Of
course they'll squeal, and the bigger
the hogs the more noise they will
make, but the listener can rest under
the blissful assuance that the rest of
the bunch are getting a look-in on the
slop.—M. L. F. in Arcadia Champion.
SECOND DRAFT TODAY
The Sherman county draft board will
issue a second call for drafted men to
day. as the required number of sixty
has not been obtained in the first 120
men called. In addition to sixty men
needed, ten per cent more or six. will
be drafted to make up for possible re
jections by the United States examin
ing officers. To date thirty-eight men
have been secured from the first draft
and it is possible that a large number
of exemptions granted by the local
board will be reversed by the district
board. A complete list of the men
called to the colors will be found on
this paste of The Northwestern.
RESERVE MILITIA COMPANY
Mell Gordon of Arcadia has receiv
ed the authority to organize a company
of not less than seventy-five men for
the reserve militia. The company will
be composed of Arcadia and Loup City
men. and will immediately take the
place of the Nebraska Militia that has
been sworn into the federal service, as
soon as they leave the state The re
serve militia will be put on guard at
bridges, public buildings, etc, where
the National Guard is now doing duty.
The reserve militia will probably be
taken into active federal service when
they have had several months training.
