Hats Off In Church.
The editor of this paper is not very
far advanced in clmreli work -probably
belongs in the kindcrgarden
classand it may seem a little out of
place for us to ehirp out at this time,
but we are going to start a littlo cm
slide which we know will meet the
approval of at -least all the ehureh
going men of this town. It is '-Ladies
remove your hats" while the preaehei'
's delivering his sermon at least.
What is more annoying or distrusting
than to be compelled to he tlm-t inr
your head around a broad rimmed hat
eighteen indies high covered with
dowers, ribbon, leathers, lords, etc.,
tryingtogetn glimpse of the preacher'.'
This alone is enough to keep a man
out of chm-eh. It would be but mighty
little trouble for the ladies to remove
their h.its and we are going to put up
:i little tight until we bring it about
and by .so doing we will have done
one good act for Cod and man. Pas
tors, please ask the ladies to remove
their headgear before you start in on
your discourses. - Smith County .Mes
senger. He. Told the Truth Once.
A Michigan editor who grew tired
of wielding the whitewash brush in
the matter of obituaries decided to
reform and tell the truth just once,
lie commented as follows upon the
death of a well-known eiti.en: "Died.
. aged Mi years, i', months. '. days.
Deceased was a mild-mannered pirate
with a mouth for whiskey and an eye
for boodle. lie came here in the
night with another man's wife, ami
joined the ehureh at the tlrst chance.
Ho. owed us several dollars for the pa
er. You could hear him pray sis
blocks. He died singing '.lesus paid it
all," and we think he is right, a.s he
never paid anything himself, lie was
buried in an asbestos casket and his
isuny friends threw palm leaf tans in
the grave, as he may need them. His
tombstone will Tie a favorite resting
place for hoot owls."

Queen Alfalfa.
Alfalfa, the queen of the west, has
added to her domain in the Inst year
and the report of Labor Commissioner
Hyder shows Unit the state is wealthier
this year than last because of lior In
crease in acreage. The bonutiful plant
has yielded to the farmers this year
more than eleven million dollars, and
the prospects of an increase next year
in the crop are promising. Western
Nebraska has been rejuvenated by the
alfalfa plant. The sandy soils of the
western counties permit the toiling
roots to dig deep into the hills and
valleys, producing a wealth of feed
and enriching the soil as well as the
"Illuming well over the mark of
eleven million and a half dollars, the
value of the alfalfa raised in I DOT
shows pretty conclusively that the
farmers of Nebraska are fully awake
to the importance of this great fodder
crop," said Labor Commissioner ltyder.
"The figures on the state production
of alfalfa have just been completed,
and give a total production of 1,."0,7.V.
tons. Figured at a very conservative
valuation this is worth Sll.iiOii.OT'.V
The total acreage was reported as
lft.ri,.vr.'. and the average yield :t.lil tons
per acre, which Mr. Hyder insists' is
away within the facts and reports
from other sources bear out his judg
ment. - The I Hue Hill Leader.

in a port with historic or other inter
esting places to visit. Permission to
go ashore Is granted whenever tl
sanitary conditions ashore and thi
work of the ship will permit. As i.
rule, half of the ship's company 's
allowed liberty each day front 1:00 p

ing. On Wednesdays, Saturdays and
Sundays, the liberty parties go iudiort
at 1 p. m. These men are nearly ml
American born, imbued with the shim;
ideas as those whose lives follow other
channels in the Dnted States. Wi'J
they miss seeing those things for which
their countrymen jburney thousands
of miles and spend hundreds of dollars
to see'.' The kodak pictures taken by
these men surely go to prove the con
trary. When a point of particular in
teicst, such as Athens, is visited, tl.
chaplains of the ships take parties tt
visit the different places, explaining
the historical associations of the
verious buildings, calling attention
the most interesting features; thus a'

rarely visited by a tourist, sees tho
stars and stripes Moating over an
American man-o'-war vessel. Some
times the ships jr UM a cruise to show
the tlagas the cruiser Denver did whin
she visited nearly every one of tho
Windward Isles from St. Thomas to
Trinidad. At other times the ships go
to protect American interests iu places
where there are revolutions. Trolley
cars, jinrickshas and other methods of
locomotion iu use in the cities and
countries visited, take our blue jackets
to see volcanoes, gardens, battlefields
and whatever there Is to see.
The men of the navy are not all
saints, some of them have vices, but it
is manifestly unfair to say that be
cause one blue-jacket has been seen
drunk in uniform, that all the men
who wear the navy blueare drunkards.
Most of them are clean, upright, self
respecting men whose actions on shore
as well as on board ship are creditable
to the country they serve.
Preparing for the Holiday Trade.
That the merchants of lied Cloud
are determined to get their share of
the holiday trade or the buying public
is evident from the many well-arranged
Christinas, window displays in town.
A care has been taken iu the selection
of holiday stocks that makes Hcd Cloud
tho best pluce in the county for you to
do your holiday trading, and with their
extensive patronage the merchants of
Hed Cloud are enabled to make prices
that should draw your trade.
Among the many well-arranged dls
play windows we have noticed thosoof
C. L. Cotting and the Fair store, con
taining all kinds of Christinas toys and
those of Paul Stmoy and the Cowdcu
Kaley Clothing Co.. both containing
articles from their lines of clothing,
such as fancy neckwear, gloves, etc.,
than which nothing better can be found
for Christinas gifts. F. Newhouse ami
Newhouse Hros. each have attractive
window displays, the former of article
from their line of dry goods and tho
latterwlth a glittering inassof jewelry,
silverware and other articles of great
variety, but all of the highestsUindaul
