So much for the big fellow, while
later on we shall touch up some of the

The ollleors chosen were as follows:

Hoy Oatman; secretary and

of the managing officers that tho

best moves that could bo made for tho
advancement of our city and wo

Ever since the foundation of the
-world was laid, changes have been
taking place in the condition of things
until wo have come to expect nothing
less than that these shiftings in both
nature itself and in the minds and
lives of men will go on forever.
The earth in its process of making
went through a bystem of changes un
til it turned upon its own axis while
revolving around the sun and rejoiced
in its own individuality.
And so it has been with man, who,
restless from the dawn of his exist
ence has clamored after something
new; something different from his
present estate, since it would seem
that no man is perfectly contented
with his surroundings, but is ever
seeking for a change.
It is well that it is thus, sinae busi
ness as well as philosophy would
stagnate under other and less exciting
And more especially is it well that
men and women change their beliefs
politically, religiously and socially,
sine J to eternally
held on to their
original notions would leave them
stranded in mid-air.
Some of us once believed in pre
destination; but who so far behind
the times as to even dream of such a
f'll.lfT . fill, TllUftTlt llflT
The day was when men and women
believed in a personal Devil, and that
ho had equal power with tho Al
mighty, since evil seems to have had
the lead of righteousness all these
Relieve and be saved, doubt and be
damned were once cardinal principles
as taught by the cloth; but who will
now contend that one has the power
to either believe or doubt that which
does not address itsself to his intelli
gence; that is to say how can one be
lieve that which it is impossible for
him to believe 1
Once we were taught by the clergy
(God save the mark) that until we
could jump up and shout Glory in the
knowledge of our sins forgiven we
had not obtained the fargiveness of
our sins; but we now hear a more
rational doctrine, wherein we are
taught that we shall one and all bo
called into judgment for the deeds
done while in the body.
A hundred and one insfances might
be cited wherein these changes are
taking place some for the better and
some for the worse but changes nev
ertheless. Take the present political situation
and count the changes that have ta-

J Theodore Rooeevolt, the impuls.ve,

A. G. Green went to Cadams, Neb.,
last week to be present at a family
reunion, at the home of his parents,
Mr. and Mrn. Joseph Green, remem
bered by many as former residents of
this place. Their live children, Mrs.
Trances Grainger of De Sota, Mo; Jos.
K. Greer, of Gibbon, A. G. Green of
Red Cloud, Ejlwanl L Green of Mason
City and "'Mrs. Aimy Wolford of
Cadams, Neb., arc spending some time
with them. Grandpa and Grandma
Green are both octogenarins and are
remarkably well-preserved and active.
They celebrated the fifty-second anni
versary of their marriage, Aug., 27th.
Their are live children, twenty-three
grand-children and six great-grandchildren.
Since coining from England
to the United States, there has been
but one death among the descendants,
that of an infant grand-child. Of the I
grandchildren, one is a missionary in
India under the Christian church, two
girls married ministers of the Gospel,
and one is Physical Director of the
Y. M. C. A., at York. This is surely a
record worthy of remomberance and
we unite with others in congratulating
these aged friends on their success
and wish them god-speed during the
remainder of life's journey.
Hlfth School Notes.

The total enrollment for the first
week of school was 432. Of this num
ber 13.1 were enrolled in the south
ward. So far the enrollment exceeds,
thai of last year by about 25. It
seems probable that the enrollment
for the first month will exceed that of
the corresponding month of last year
by about 40. In all the rooms in the

HORSE THIEF ESCAPED.
Lee Calahan, the horse thief from
Alma who has been confined in jail
here for the past few months, escaped
from the sheriff of Harlan county
Wednesday morning by jumping
through a car window near Repub
lican City, while the train was run
ning at a high rate of speed. Calahan
had asked to be taken before .Judge j
Adams so that he might plead guilty
and begin serving his sentence. He
was taken to Minden Monday anil was
sentenced to throe years in the peni
tentiary. After receiving his sentence
ho claimed he was only 1.1 years of age
and the judge ordered him returned to
jail until the next term of court when
the question of his age would be in
vestigated. When the train was near
Republican City Calahan asked and
received permission from the sherill'
to go into tho toilet as soon as he was
in the toilet he raised the window and
jumped from the train. Calahan is a
pretty smooth individual. This is the
third time he has escaped, twice from
Sheriff Davis of Harlan county and
once from Sheriff Hedge.

most enthusiastic band meetings ever
held in Red Cloud. About 3.1 of tho
most representative young men of our
