This Government Won't Put $
Its Money $
In a bank that does not guarantee it against loss.
Why Should You?
The United States will not deposit a dollar in a
National Bank, on any other bank, unless the bank
furnishes a bond for twice the amount, deposited.
The United States Government can at any time
make an investigation of any National Bank and learn
all about its resources. But still the Government de
mands a guarantee for its deposits why shouldn't YOU
have protection.
Your deposits in this bank are protected by the
State Guaranty Law no matter what happens

Buick Car Wins
Endurance Race
The Lincoln Daily Star's Endurance
Knee, conducted under the auspices of
the Lincoln Automobile Club, was
won by Leo Hull', local manager at
Lincoln of the Nebraska llufek Com
pany, he driving a Model 31 Buick
touring car. There were 21 auto
mobiles in the contest, nnd about 81
people, they having spent last Tuesday
night in this city.
The race covered a distance of about
CoO miles, aud all the participants are
loud in their praise of Nebraska roads,
as well as the treatmeut which they
received at every stop. However ow
ing to the excessive heat, it was a
hard race both for the driver and car.
Mr. Huff is highly elated over his
victory and says his success was dun
to the wonderful cooling efficiency of
bis motor, he receiving no penalty on
aocount of being compelled to replen
ish his Bupply of water In the radiator,
between the 100 mile patrols.
We have ever held to the opinion
that the Buick was an A 1 car, and no
doubt, our friend John Havel, who is
agent for them here, and who, by the
way, has never overlooked an op
portunity to tell of the wonderful ad
vantages of this said Buick "Model
31," is likewise pleased over Mr. II tiff's

his shoi.t stay among us, has been con

poor. He has not insisted upon the
poor being brought to him, but he 1ms
gone out after them. He has not in
sisted on the prisoners being producer
before hiin, but he lias gone to the
prison. He bus visited tho jail of this
county more, possibly, than all the
mlulsters who have been in lied Cloud,
and lie has been the means, under
heaven, of setting more feet on the
upward way than most of the clergy
meu of the city. He has apparently
tried to fulfill literally the gospel in
junction, of visiting the prisons.
There is no doubt that he has won the
respect of those outside the church
for his genuine work in uplifting the
Uvea of the downcast and defeated.
He has come to W looked upon, in a
special manner, aa the friend of the
weak and the fallen. Discouragements

heretofore hoped for success
He-is a good example of the faith
that comes by works, of the rlchuess
of human sympathy 'acquired by re
peated practice of the enlargement of
spiritual manhood by cobstant exer
cise. Red Cloud will miss him very much
when he leaves us. He has taught us
in a measure to roly on tho preacher
lu the extension of our interest iu
others, iu the expansion of our sympa
thies for others, He has taught us
this by leading the way and asking us
to follow where he led. We have been
so acoustomed to beiug told what to
do without auy leadership us to time
and place of doing, that the words of
advice and Instruction have lost their
meaning. Our preachers seem too
willing to be commanding generals of
armies with headquarters In tho rear
of tho battle field, the library or the
pulpit, that It is refreshing to follow a
captain or colonel who takes his plhco
in front of the battle line and savs
"Come on" instead of "Go on".
Mr. Cole always said, "Come, men,"
wheic others simply said, "Uo, men".
His sermon was sotnollilng iu tho
nature of a farewell talk. Wo are of
thoso who are vory sorry to miss him.
We regret that his church could not

.Time Brings
Many Changes
It was the boat of Ira Sleeper, tho
'hM blacksmith of Ucd Cloud, that ho
ha-' roofed In more building than any
man in obster county. This was be
foie the day of big bums, He pointed
to the lesldence, stneo re-built, of Mr.
McArthur, the building formerly oc
cupied by Dr. Howies, lately removed
from thu coruor of Poplar stieet find
I'oiirth Avenue to make room for the
new McP.irhiud structure, th old
blacksmith shop just temoved to
make loom for tho new building which
Mr. Hall is electing, and '.he Overlng
building noi Hi of the livery stable.
Mr. Sleeper bote the lupiitatloii ol
1 ta'ii'U U'S't class blacksmith, with the
tools and conveniences of u half
century ago, btlorc ga-ollue engines
lenlly purchased the quarter block
hunting on Ifotirth Avenue and
Cedar street. lie erected the dwell
ing house iu lSTi, or spiltif,' ol 1-.7I,
tho blacksmith shop a shot) time be
foie. The blacksmith shop has been
added to, yet tho old building was
still there, and Mr. Hall has removed
considerable dimension stuff of cot tou
wood, sawed out in the old saw mill of
J. (J. Potter.
If I til should come buck to lied
Cloud next Octobor, he would be lost.
The Overlng building which stood so
long us the only brick on the east side
of Webster street, is now the last of a
solid block of brick. The McArthur
residence bears uo resemblauue to the
structure Sleeper left on tho site. The
Mc Far laud buildings cover the site of
the residence, aud the Hall cement
block structure with its handsome
Crick front will replace the homely
sheds that disfigured that corner of
the block. Mr. Hall may be a better
blacksmith than Sleeper was; he cer
tainly is building a finer building than
Sleeper ever built; but he does not
compare with Ira iu the readiness to
blow bis owu horn, and the delight
with which he listens to its tootlogs.
Very uolsolessly, Mr. Hall has been
quietly and industriously making
cemeut blocks since the curly part of
May, and piling them ou the rear of
his lots. Whcu he got his blocks
made, be began trenching In front of
his shop aud laid a good cement
foundation. Then he begun taking
down the frame of the old structures,
uud replacing it with the wulls of u
substantial, commodious uud hand
some building, which, so far as out
side appearance goes, would be credit
able housing for udry goods establish
ment or a bank,
Iu us much as Mr. Hull has been so
reticent uboutthe affair, the Chief ro-
gards It us Its duty, to suy a good
word about his enterprise aud skill,
add commeiid his example to tho rest
of the community.
