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

Meeting at Guide Rock

to be remembered by the members of
the Republican Valley and tho South
Central Associations, It was the time
when the two became one and because
of this we believe will be better nre
pared to carry on the woik of the
Kingdom of God.
The meeting from beginning to tlio
end was very spiritual and the great
key note was "How can we be of tho
most service to (lod and man."
Our state workers Biothors Mills,
Berry, Collins, Mrs. Keir aud Mrs.
llomau all brought very encouraging
words. There presence were a sourco
of gteat blessing. While the work of
the state is not what we wlsii it was,
yet on the.wholo thoro Is every reason
to take coinage and go ou.
The sermons and addresses weiu all
very helpful but there mu two parts of
tlio piogram that need special mention.
That of the young people's program.
The three young people from the local
society certainly handled their sub
jects well. At the close of the pio
giam Hon. Mr. Custor of Oborlin,
Kansas was Introduced and gave an
addiess on the subject "What think
yo of Christ." This was an address
that would graco any Chautauqua
The evening service was given to
our state secretary, Rev. Fred Berry,
This service was strictly an evangelis
tic service. It was oue long to be re
membered by the masterly addrc68
and the sweet spirit that prevailed,
Thus ended the first session of the
Southern Union Baptist Association.

Schools To Teach
The art iclo relative to tho Agricul
tural schools quoted fiom Hie Super
ior Kxpicss is wrong in oue respect, as
we have been informed by Professor
Moi-iu. Instead of nineteen, theic
were hut twelve, schools selected, of
which the lied Cloud school was one.
Thoic will, therefore, be Slu.UOO to bo
dhided het'xecu 1'J, making SI'O lo
each school.
Ucd Cloud can cougiatiilatc Itself on
llie oppoi luulty thus ull'unlcd it of lie
coming an educational center lor the
fuimiiiL' community of this and the
adjoining counties. Doubtless, if we
do our pin t, the lied Cloud schools wiM
ueiiiiiully attract hundiods of young
men and women lo this city as a place
lb acquaint themselves with the wid
est infoiuiatlou, iiutl leceive the best
Induing, to III themselves for the most
successful uiul happy cultiiie of the
fertile lauds of the Uepiiblican valley.
The presence of these young men
and women will attract their parents
and friends, and do more to put this
city to the front than any other thing
within our menus.

Rwuyu uud other means to promote tho
growth of tho city, but here is some
thing tangible uud real. .,
Whilo the amount appropriated' by
the state is small to begin with, it
rests with us in a large measure to
make it the beginning of a great woik.
The days of colleges aud schools
which have for their immediate object
no practical teaching is rapidly puss
lug. Tho day is at hand wheu the
young men uud women arc seeklug
the knowledge which will make them
immediately useful in the production
of weultb. That wealth is to be pro-
diced primarily from the soil.
.The sohool that devotes itself most
earnestly to prepare Its students for
successful toll in the production of
food and the economic management of
the farm and home, is tht school that
will attract and retain the largest
number of our best boys and girls.
One other result will follow. When
the Red Cloud Schools show themsel
ves prepared to teach the subjects of
most practical interest to the farmers,
there will be in this city a source of in
formation to which the farmer may
apply, and will with the certainty that
he will ohtaiu disinterested aud In
telligent advice in the emergencies
that meet him.
Last vear had there been sucli u
school In this city, the mistake-) In
the treatment of the horses ami mules
of this vicinity could liatdly have hap
pelied. Theie would have been u
bcloutltlcully educated teacher of ugii
culture in our picsenco. Kvory farm
er would have gone to him in the ilrst
instance, ami learned, at least, till that
science could ,teaeh him. If science
could not tell him all he wished to
know, ho would, at least,' learu what
lo avoid
Tho tioulile with our educational
syotoin in lite past, lias been that while
the teachers were authority on giaiu-
inar. mathematics literature, ami logic,
they weie not supposed to know us
much about tho practical ailaiivs of1

lican valley are vitally inieiestod.
We expect its graduates will be so

that the mistakes of tho past will bu
Impossible la the future.

The Present
Cattle Situation
Only few years ago we war ac
customed to talk about the greatness
of our western ranges, and to boast
that we not only consumed more meat
per capita than any other civilised (
nation but that we bad a surplus biff'
enough to satisfy the demands of
Europe. We had some excuse for
boasting, for In lOoi we exported 496,-
000 cattle and :JJ2,O0O,o00 pounds ot
fresh beef. By 1008 our exports had
fallen to .In 0,000 head of cattle and.
201,000,000 pounds or fresh beef while
in 1012 wefcxporied only IOs.OOO cattle
and 15,000,000 pounds of fresh beef.
Our dairy exports amounted to 80.COO,
000 in 1P01 ami les- than half that
amount In 11112. Tho indications are
that this year's exports of beef will be
less than last.
During tho years that our beef ex
ports have decreased our Imports have
increased from 02,000 head of cuttle in
1003 to .'118,000 In 11113. The value of
tho dairy products imported during1
tho same period Increas&d from S,700,
000 to moio tlirm ?10,000,000.
In 1000 tliero wero over 71,000,000
cattle in the United Statos. At tho
present time tliero uro fiOVSOO.OOO. it
is u story of deci o islng herds and de
creasing exports, of increasing imports
and iiicroaslug population.
In the fnco of tho ahovo llgiuos no
Nebraska larmer should sacriflco his
breeding cittlo because of tlio prosont
shot tage of forage, Tho cattle market
is high now, but vc have ever reason
to believe It will coutluuo to be high,
and that tho farmer who soils his.
breeding stock now will not only lose
his natuial increase but will have to
pay as much or more for similar stock:
when feed becomes moro plentiful.
In practically all parts of tho stats
there is suilloient feed for the wluter
if it is proporly conserved. Much ot
the Injured corn can bo cut for fodder
aud the silo Is a means of saving feed.,
which otherwise is a total loss.
