Advertising ib no longer considered as
an oxpouse by men of good business
judgement. It is an investment pure
and- simple. Advertising penults u
merchant to talk fttco to face with u
largo audience and the more convinc
ing he can make his speech the great
or trudo ho will receive. In order to
sell goods one must first attraek at
tention, then croato an interest In
there- goods and then instill in the
mind a destroto buy. This leads to
tho sale. People buy a paper for tho
news, it is true, but they also soleet
one which has a liberal amount of ad
vertisements because they want to
"know what ;is ofl'oredj.for sale. Tho
value- of an advertisement depends
upon its attractiveness,; Its convinc

Indications are that Red Cloud will
experience a healthy giowth during
tho coming year. Several new houses
are nlicady undor process of construct
ion and many more aro boing planned.
This steady growth is an lnsuranco of
pormanoncy and is au excellent index
ot" progress. Wo antlcapate no boom.
It Is questionable whether n. hnnm w
an advautage or a drawback. As far
as the Chiof is concerned we would
much profor toseo this steady increase

to those that want that kind or nd

in which to llvoand therefore progress
is inevitable.
Good Roads
The eltl-s towns and vlllauvsnic as
much interested in good toads leading
to market us ate- the fuum-i-i and to
meet tho emergency there was enacted
what Is known as the law for the levy
for municipal highway fund. Tinier
this law a city niny levy a 2 mill tax
on all taxable property within the
corporation for making roads as far
as six miles into the country. Hero is
Red Cloud's opportunity. To bo en
tliely shut off from the sunouuding
country spells ruin and uo bcllctuour
citizens should awake to tho m-eat
necessity of placing the loads in good
condition for travel
No other municipal problem is mint-
or than this olio and action should be
commenced at once. Tho ncwspapeis
contribute their share in promoting
the project but it is up to the people
to act. Aside from the better appear
ance of tho roads and streets and the
general pleasing eirect of excellent
roads thero will be a decided advant
age In dollars and cents derived from
a good system of roads. Property in
tho city as well as on the farm will in
crease in proportion to the passabillty
ot the public- highway. It needs no
aigument, we all know that good roads
are Imperative.
For the betielll, or those who liavo
not had access to this new law we io-
produce it heio hoping Immediate
action will ho commenced.

of Alma havo sprung a surpriso upon

With tho change in our yearly rain
fall the question or good roads assum
es a position of much Importance. For
several years the roads loading to this
city have been exceptionally bad but
during the pait few months they have
been practically impassible. A move
ment is underway whereby those roads
will bo fixed and tint movement has
our hearty endorsement. Theie is no
more vital question confronting ns
today than tlio one of roads. Tlu

Webster county. Any road district
can do as well acting under tho new
road law which wo pi hit below. All
forms of farm products are bringing
a good price but if it is imnossiblo to
get thoso products to market the price
is or little value. It is wondorful what
a C mill levy will do in ilxlnir roads
together with tho money available
from tho county commissioner. Tho

The eiforts of republicans to claim
the credit for the eight o'clock law aro
very laughable in the face of the fact
that after being in control of the legis
lature for twenty years the rcpub
licaus never took a single progressive
step along liquor legislation lines.
Senator WUtso Is not entitled to the
credit of having introduced tho eight
o'clock bill. All he had to do with it
was to introduce 11 bill closing saloons
on primary election day. All save tho
file number nnd the words "bo it
enacted by tho legislature of the stato
of Nebraska" were striken out and
the present eight o'clock law substitut
ed. Senator Wiltso know nothing
about it until the bill was reported
out of the house committee and put on
passage. The eight o'clock law Is tho
result of democratic progresslvoncss
along liquor legislation lines, and was
enacted by the Hist democratic"legis

The last legislature passed a new
divorce law. The new law makes
mateiial changes in the manner of se
curing divorces. Iticquircs personal
service in practically all cases. It re
quires that au applicant for divorce
must be a resident of tho stato for two
years. Recognizing the many abuses
of the dl voi co system, this law rorno
dies these dllllculties by making it
more difllcult to secure 11 divorce, by
so arranging tho procedure that divor
ces will not lie surreptitiously granted.
Non-residents seeking venues in which
divorces aro easily obtained will puss
Nebraska. Nebraska courts never
havo been bothorod very much with
transient applicants for divorces. The
last law absolutely prevents and pro
hibits matrimonial soldiers of fortune
in other states from securing divorces
in this one.
It may be of interest to tho public
to know that tho last legislature
passed mora drainage legislation thau
had been passed before In tlm ).utn,.
