Our candidates for commissioners,
Messrs. Coon and Bright are both com
petent gentlemen and the interests of
the county may well be Intrusted to
their care. In a large measure the
county commissioners are the most im
portant oflloials of the county and
mnch care should be used in their
selection. Voto for Coon and llright.

I charming personality has made her a
host of friends. She is- deeply inter
ested in educational matters and if

iutendent she will give one of the best
administrations In that office that we
have ever had. Remember Miss Ger

For the office of oounty judge the
democratic party has placed A. D.
Banney who has been practicing law
' in Blue mil for .twenty years or more.

served his city and school district for

ergstic, accommodating, pleasant aud
agreeable and has all the requirements
necessary to serve this county as
countyclerk. Mr. Bailey was born
and reared in this county and Ih famil
iar witli her history and her needs.
Voto for William R. ltniley for county
Oscar A. Arnold, democratic candi
date for county treasurer, is making
friends where ever he goes. For a
number of years he taught school in
this county with considerable success
and later he settled on his farm in Elm
Creek township. Mr. Arnold Is by
training well prepared to perforin the
duties of the ofllce of county treasurer.
He is au accurate accountant, a care
ful paiiistuking workmnu and will
make an excullontoniclal. Mr Arnold
has made good and when you como to
register your judgement on election
day remember that Oscar A. Arnold
is worthy of your support for theotllce
of county treasurer.
Miss Edith L. MoKeighan, the Demo
cratic candidate for Clerk of the Dis
trict court is well prepared for the
duties of that office having been de
puty for the past four or five years.
During this time she has been assign
ed every pnase or tne work necessary
In that ofllce and is thoroughly famil
iar with all the proceedures, the laws
and all the details, Resides this train
ing she has excellent olerkical train
ing, is a proficient shorthand reporter
and is exceptionally well equipped for
the duties of the office. Some people
have thought that the question of sex
would operate against Miss MoKeighan
In her campaign for this office but the
real question is she capable? Can she
perform the duties required ? Of this
there Is no doubt. No one questions
for a minute her ability. As for as
precedent is concerned we find that a
lady Is clerk of the United States cir
cuit court in Kansas City, Missouri, a
lady Is clerk of the district court in
lloulder, Colorado, Miss Lulli Ervin
holds a similar position in $eneca,
Kansas, another lady holds the same
office in Julesburg, Colorado, another
at Ilreckenridge, Colorado, and others
might be named. Instead of being
handicap the lawyers and patrons o,f
the office are exceedingly well pleased
because of the politeness, courtesy
and efficiency of these ladies. Vote
for Edith McKcighan for cterk of the
in Suits and Coats
The Commerlcial Advertiser, the
Red Cloud organ of the republican
candidate for district judge tells us
how Judge Overman hates to campaign
over tb,a district and especially in
Hastings and Adam s cou nty the. home
of.Judgef jbujpgau. Mr. Overman says
a jnage suouiu main win. bis -dignity
aud stay at home and not go gallivat
lug around like aster- iB-vthe.,corn.
Mr. Overman Has5 otir sympathy;
pWljIlc In Hastings Taft day Mr. Over-
man was being towed around town by
Carson Ilildreth, Watt Chitwood and
Banker Conkling a bunch of Republi
can Valley boosters and we didn't
notice that Mr. Overman Saras trying
to break away from this distinguished
company. When this quartette drift
ed into the Tuft banquet in a body at
a late hour they looked like they had
been swapping mule?, and all satisfied
Mr. Overman was evidently stringing
his official organ at Red Cloud. His
trail over this city indicates that he
is playing the gHnic with a relish.

It is conceded by all the boys that
Kdgar Cowden looks well when dress
ed in white. Last night marked tho
end of ills bachlor days in lied Cloud,

but enjoyable love fepst. Tho last we
heard of the performances Flavins

ball eleven held the heavy Franklin

outweighed, our boys, we believe will
make an enviable record this year.

doubtless, the best informed man in
the state on practical aud scientific

pression that he is as authoritative in
his department as Iiurbauk Is in his.
Withal, ho is a gentleman whom it is
a pleasure to question and who is en
tertaining and instructive In his re

his presenco at the coming Farmer's
Institute. Mr. Campell is the editor
of i he Scientific Farmer." And judgt

Grandma Wittwer was buried Sun

was a native of Beam Switzerland
where she was born, July I8t 1838 and
was married to Benedict C. Wittwer
lu 1858 In i860 with her husband
and children emegratiug to America,
settling in eastern Kansas and event
ially, in 1873, became one of the pio
neers of tliis section Settling just
across the line in Kansas. Her hus
band died in 1882, leaving her with
several small children, her elder
children had attained their majorities
and all of her children as they left
the home settled in its immediato
vicinity, so her lot has been unusally
fortunate Of seven children three
boys, Fied, John and George have
farms of their own, near tho original
homostead and Frank the youngest
purchased the home farm. 'I he girls
married energetic and prosperous
farmers in the neighborhood. The
Wlttwers have always been highly es
teemed in this part of the country and
the old lady has been regarded with
respect nud affection by a large
number of people. In all, eleven
children were born to her, of whom
three died in childhood and oiih
Samuel, died in 1801. The living
children are Fred, John, George and
Frank, and Mrs. Rose Forgy, Mrs.
Elizabeth McCrillls and Mrs. Emma
Rothrock. There are thirteen grand
children. Mrs. Wittwer was a member
of the Reformed Luthern church
which she joiued in childhood and of
which she remained a consistent and
exemplary member. The funeral ser
vices were conducted by Rev Hummel
from the home of Ed McCrillls and
attended by all neighbors who were
glad to bear witness to the worth of
the mother who has gone, and show
thler sympathy for her sons and
daughters who live in our midst.
