of electing a commodious opera house
and lodge room building. The Wood
men ale alsoendeavoiing to induce M
R. Rent Icy to enlaigo the room now
used for lodge purposes, which could
he made to accommodo an audience of
!!.")0 10 101) people if the change suggest
ed were itiaile. Thoro is not much
hope of the latter pi eject succeeding,
however, unless the Woodman bear all
the expense of tho undertaking, anil
"give up' something extra besides
Mr. Hontley has never been accused of
belonging to that class of wealthy men
who build buildings for public bene
lit. Commencement Exercises at Woodman
The high school seniors havo bton
unable to secure tho opera house for
tin ir commencement exorcises, and at
laiigtinonts have been made for giving
the exercises in Woodman hall. While
the hall is not so largo as tho opera
hoit'o, quite a fair audience can be ac
ci inmodateil, and as the exi rebo-i
cover two nights it is thought all can
be taken care of. It deems a pity that
a town the size of Rod Cloud cannot
have a public hall largo enough to hold
the audieucis-i which always turn out
to public entertainments.
Next Wttlnesday iho Rod Cloud and
McCook teams will play ball 011 the

R,ead This Carefully
I am making lots of Farm Loans.
There are reasons for this. 1 can close a
loan for you in three clays after taking your
application, for these reasons:
You do not have to wait and pay for a
man to examine the land. My company has
oceans of money. You do not wait for them
to sell your loan in New York or London
before getting the cash.
You can Pay Off at Any Time,
without giving a day's notice of your inten
tion so to do. All other companies require
from 30 to 60 days notice on this (joint.
I have so many different plans for making
loans that some one is bound to suit. No
one can give better rates.
