MONOPOLY OF BRAINS.
TIlC AriUS Insinuates That Supporters
of the SctlOOl Bonds Were Poverty
Stricken and Brainless.
The vote would seem to indicate
that the most of the property holders i
and thinking men of the north ward ;
were opposed to the proposition before
them. On the side of the bonds there
was much organized and outspoken
work. Against the bonds there was
no organized effort. Yet. rejecting the
vote of the women, the vote was very ,
evenly divided Webster County Argus.
l!y just what process of mental
gynasties the Argus arrives at the
above conclusion is beyond our com ,
prehension. The Australian ballot is
secret, and no one issupposcd to know
how his neighbor voted. If their own
woid is to be believed, many ladies in
the north ward voted against the
bonds, yet that ward gave a inajoiity
of 07 for the proposition. The almost
unanimous vote for the bonds in the
south ward needs no analysis. If it
is true the majority of the property
owners and "'thinkers" in the north
ward voted against the bonds, then it
is a blessing there were not more of
them. However, we are inclined to
the belief that the opponents of the i
bonds had no inonopaly of either the'
brains or property in this city, and it
will take something more than the
Argus' statement to make us believe
the supporter of the bonds were not i
financially interested and that they
were incapable of judging rightly on
the bond proposition. For our own
part, we are proud to be classed with
the poverty-stricken ami brainless.

Why Property Owners Should Vote fer
a Nov Court House.
On the court house bond question
the voters of (he county ought not ti
he misled by any local prejudice foe
or against lied Cloud. This is a seri
ous question and should be given
serious consideration by every prop
erty owner in the county.
No one denies, and no one can deny,
the fact that this county needs a new
court house. Seventy-live thousand
dollars will be suflicicut. to build a
court house only one-half as large as
the court house at Hebron, in Thayer
county. The county eommissioners
should have submitted a proposition
for an issue of one hundred thousand
dollars, and then this county would
have been able to have erected a build
ing that would compare favorably
with the court houses in adjoining
counties. Hut with the proceeds of
the seventy-live thousand, if judicious
ly expended, the county can build a
court, house that will last for seventy

Do you know that no sheriff's, exec

from which the deed is issued?
If these records should be lost, how
would you protect your title?
