Stripped of alt circumlocution and
legal verbiage tho gist of the petition
is about as follows:
The first Uiree clauses consist of a
wordy preamble which has very little
bearing on the subject matter of the
The fourth clause, after naming the
defendants, states that for the past
two yearn they "have been acting or
pretending to act" as the school board
of said district.
In the, fifth clause it is alleged that
the defendants have no right or au
thority to assume to be the school
hoard of this district and conduct its
busincssf "for the reason that tho
said dofondauts failed, neglected and
refused to take the oath of ollice as by
law required to be taken by each of
them, and said defendants nor either
of them are. not and never have Im'cii
entitled to hold the otllce of iuemler
of the school board of the school dis
trict of the city of Red Cloud."
In the si.xth clause it is set forth
that the defendants caused a resolu
tion to bo passed whereby a proposi
tion was "submitted or attempted to
Imj submitted" to the electors of said
school district as to whether or not

personal property, and debts auufunt

The fourteenth clause asserts that

will continue to act as tho school
board of said district unless restrained

'J'he last paragraph of the petition
"l'laintiffs therefore pray that the
defendants be restrained from selling
said bonds, and that said bonds be
cancelled and declared to have been
issued illegally, and that they bo en
joined and restrained from acting as
members of the school board, and that
a receiver be appointed to take charge,
of the property of said district, and in
the event that' the defendants have
sold said bonds, judgment bo rendered
against them in favor of the school
district for the amount of the bonds

No one outside tho handful of men
who are making tho light seems to be

It is true that Stockings ought to wear better
Vfeitn'i lAraftf ' nose we sen, it sometimes
if Oil I nbflln seems, ought to wear better. Customers occasion
ally say that no stockings wear as well as they used to do. Of course, the trouble
is partly in the btocking and partly in the wearer.
Women don't wear as heavy Hose as they once wore. They say: "Give
me something thinner; 1 can't wear those thick ones." And, of course, the ma
terial is nol in them to give service. We would not expect the same service
from a lace and broadcloth gown, yet we do something similar in our reasoning
on Hose. x
Then many require that their Hose fit like a glove. If 'they were to buy a
half size larger they would add much to the life of a pair of 1 lose. A good deal
depends on the treatment given a Stocking. If it is pulled on, twisted on, jerked,
on, or worn with ill-fitting shoes, even a firm Stocking will soon give way.
It must be said, too, that dyes which are too strong will ruin a Stocking.
That is where the customer is powerless, and it is where we arc powerless as
well. The old iron-wearing Hose were ingrain dyed colored in the yarn before
knitting. The newer fast blacks are much more evenly dyed, but an acid is used
that sometimes gets, ahead of the watchfulness even of experts. But people
would not hjive the old gray-touched Hose and they can't have guaranteed wear
combined with fast, even color.
