mid give ample opportunity for pro

fill planning lo successfully carry out.
a feature of this, kind and if anything
of this character is attempted it should
he begun in (-eat-on.
We feel it ineuiiibontuponour.selvc.s
,,to outer a protest against tho habit of
home men of this city ot using vulgar
mid profane language Iicfore young
boys. It Is harmful enough among
men but when grown-ups dcllbertly
use improper language for the solo
purpose of tonslug boys It is time
enough to call a halt. Such men de
servo to bo sovcroly censured mid wo
bcllovo should bo punished. No man
wants his son exposed to the vlloness
of such little contemptible men and
every mother suffers extreme anguish
of heart whenever her boy becomes
the victim of these unscrupulous and
unprincipled assaults. Those who
liavo tho stature of men ought to pos
hoss enough manhood to conduct
themselves as men. " .
Wo tiro pleased Hint the school bom d
has placed a practical course in our
high school. The Chlof has streuous
ly advocated the idea of giving the
boys and uirls, who never enter the
doors of a higher Institution of learn
ing, the same advantage of an educa
tion as tlioso who cuter a professional
career and we welcome the change
made. The boatd has acted wisely
and wo believe should recoivo tho
thanks of tho entire city. Ne.t year
it will be possible for students to take
n course in manual training, commer
cial arithmetic, typewriting, etc.,
which will lit them for the practical
duties of life. Our educational system
has tho right idea in educating tho
Negro and the Indian but the present
methods for the white race huvo be
come top heavy.
While thu policy of tho Chief Is
Democratic we wish it distinctly un
derstood that it is first of nil for Web
ster county. Wo believe In buildlnir
up our homo county and wllludvocuto
any thing that appeals to us as being
beneficial. Noxt we hold to the prin
ciples of tho Doiuourntic party and
will always be found to champion Its
interests nun welfare because we bo
lievo that under the constitution wo
havo tho right of political freedom.
As long as wo are In possession of our
right mind we will never cngago in
the unproiltablo, occupation of mud
blinking or abiibe ultho wo hold our
selves in roadlness to expose political
crookedness. Many of the prominent
democrats of tho county are on our
subscription list arid there are a few
yet holding aloof whom we would be
pleased to havo on our books. It is a
duty you owo to assist in conducting
tho campaign ot education and inci
dentally vc will attempt to give you
your monoy's worth. To our repub
lican friends we promise fair and
lionorablo treatment. Wo ask this for
ourselves mid are willing to give tho

Appropriate nntl Impressive Services.
Sunday afternoon at tho Ml. llopo
church ground occurred the ceremony
of laying the corner stone About 800
people hud gathered to take part In
tho exercises and to show by their
presence that they suctioned the erect
ion of church buildings. It Bpeuks
woll for any community to havo n
church in its midst mid wo congrat
iilato the people lu the neighborhood
of Mt llopo for tho enterprise they
have shown mid for their evident de
sire to devote a portion of their time
and means to the betterment of their
The day was Ideal in every respect.
Just wnnn enough to bo comfortable
without any wraps, no wind and tho
atmosphere contained enough ozone
to keep nny ono wldo awake.
Kov. Hutntnel at 3 o'clock began ti
services by having tho choir mid con
gregation sing a hymn. Scripture
roading und prayer followed after
which Kov. Cramer of tho Methodist
church at Salem delivered a Bcroion
appropriate to tho occasion, lie
showed that it wns inherent In overy
people to crcot houses and buildings.
Somo of those wero for good purposes
mid homo wero not. Somo were for
tho inoro gratification of selfish ambi
tion untTothors wero for tho upbuild
ing of thocommunity. Somo wonffor
the truo God and some for false Gods
yet there could always bo found tho
disposition to build. Ho complement
ed tho pooplo of Mt. llopo on their
wHlingnosB to build a church which
was not for soir glorification but for
aiding God's work in this world. Ho
closed by calling attention to tho
house not built with hands, otornal In
thu heavens and hoped that, all the
members of this now church would re
main faithful and not neglect tho
spiritual wolfaro of their .souls.
The next speaker was K. J. Overing
Jr., of this city, who was introduced
by Kov. Hummel as a layman and not
a pteacher. The speaker brought out
the Idea that what tho corner stone
was to tho foundation that to the
community was the church and from
it should radiate all the spiritual, In
tollectual and social welfare of thu
community. In ordor that tho church
might fullll its true mission It must be
composed of members whose qualifica
tions wero honesty, courage, brains
and character. He emphasized the
necessity of nuiking much of the Sun
day school for therein could be found
an open forum for evory person.' In
his conclusion ho reminded tho people
of tho Mt. Hope church that they were
just entering the arena and much
would be expected of them and their
opportunities for good were multiplied
a hundred fold.
Kov. Hummel then delivered a short
address dwelling upon the thought
that thu church mudo for character
and he prayed that not only the mem
bers of the church but also tho ontiro
community should lay the corner
stone, Christ .Jesus, in their hearts
Mr. Hummel'.s address was necessarily
brief because upon him devolved the
carrying out of the ritualist formula
of the Methodist church on occasions
of this character, lie then read the
names of the members, the deacons,
the trustees and olllcers and the
Ladles" Aid These all were put into
tho corner stono as woll as tho Ucd
Cloud Chier. The Commercial Adver
User and tho Webster County Argus.
Mr. Hummel laid the corner stone in
u workmanlike manner and showed
that ho had not neglected the educa
tion of his hands during his 3.1 years
of active ministry. Mr. Hub Henry
was the artist m charge of the trowel
and inorter mid even our untrained
ej'o could see that he was a past in.is
tor in tho art of mixing.
Deacon Hooper then briefly related
his first attendance in the old log
church which used to stand just west
of the present silo. Ono thought ex
pressly struck us as showing tho opin
ion tho east hold about this country
'in the early day. Mr. Hooper went
homo from thut llrst attondanco and
wrote to the old father, who enter
tained grave fcars'for his boy in tho
wild west, that lie was in a country
which reverenced (Sod. That was one
of tho happiest experiences of his early
residence and made him feci grateful
that he lived in a country whero God
This church is the outgrowth of
years of labor of that idofutlgablo
worker, Kov. Hummel. To him be
longs much of tho credit of establish
ing tiiis church and to him the grate
ful people give their heartfelt thanks.
After years of preaching but more
especially after a series of revival
meetings which Mr. Hummel conduct
ed Mr. Hope church was organized
March 7, l'.tOi) with a membership of

ceremonies, enjoyed tho mcetiug of

God speed and trusts that they may
enjoy the fruits of their saerUIces and
their labors. As we said at tho begin
lug It speaks well for .uiy community
to have av church within their conllues.

Catharine A. Garber,
By .1. S. (ililtnm.
Catharine A. Garber passed away
oarly Monday morning, after au ill
ness of two years, during which time
she had been in Wyoming mid Now
Moxlco in Hoarcli of health. Fouling
that, she was gradually falling, she re
turned from Now Mexico two weeks
prior to her death, but tho Irresistible
progross of Brlght's disease brought
tltd end much sooner than it wns ex
pected. Tho funeral was hold from
tho homo of Mrs. L E. Tait Wednes
day afternoon, conducted by Ucv. A.
A. Cressman, and tho Woman's Relief
Corps was in charge of tho services.
Mrs. Garber was born In JJavaria,

with her a niece, tho daughter of
Abrum Garber, who had left his young
er child "Ed" with his mother at Ne
braska City to await tho making of a
homo in tho then wilderness of west
ern Nebraska. At Ueatrlco William
MoBrido and his wifo and Luther
Mick, with his mother and her two
grand children, were met, who were
thinking of making a scttlcmontsomc
whero in tho uninhabited valleys of
the state. Silas Garbor persuaded
them to accompany tho Garbcrs and
they consented, largely becauso tho
prcsonco of Mrs. Garbor assured the
women that home and society would
be presently established.
Tho company journeyed together
until Fairbtiry was roached, the last
outpost or civilization in the cast.
Falrbury contained sovoral buildings,
and promised protection to thu women
and children from tho Indians. Tho
women tarried hero until the men
could rido ahead and discover tho out
look in Webster county, which was
the nearest county where tho lands
were generally subject to homestead
On tho return of tho men, Mrs Gar
ber accompanied lior husband and his
brothers to the vicinity of what is
now Guide Kook. Tho other women
remained behind at Falrbury. Mrs.
Garbor was, at the time, unencum
bered with children, and sho preferred
to sharo all" tho dangers and hardships
of the vory beginning with lior hus
band. She hail drawn a carbino from
tho stale with the men at Lincoln, also
her supply of ammunition, and pre
pared herself to encounter poril on
even terms with lior husband and
brothers-in-law-. It was her boast that
she beaame, in a littlo while, the best
shot of the party with the exception
of Silas, or the ex-governor. Arriving
at Guide Kook, tho remains of die Col.
Rankin party wero discovered, of
whom Donald McCallum and Emanuel
rctersaionow the solo survivors in
this vicinity. There was nNo discov

before by tho Hunkln company, which
had been christened Thayer City, in
honor of Senator Thayer. This city
then consisted of a square hole dug lu
the ground to a depth or tour R-ct and
walled up by the dirt thrown from the
excavation, with a roof of trco branch

party came with oxen, wagons and
farming implements to improvo the
boll, and also brought with them a
woman and a child, the sure pledges
that tills was no Incursion or more ad
