The Best in the World
"I have always said that the agrl
cultural exhibit of the Industrial Ex
hibition association at Winnipeg was
tho best in the world," said Dean C.
E. Bessey of the state university Wed
nesday, "but after viewing tlio agri
cultural exhibit of the Nebraska state
fair in the new agricultural-horticultural
hall I must revise my opinion
and place It in advance of anything I
have ever seen. Furthermore the ar
rangements of the exhibits, blending
the artistic and the practical, was a
distinct step in advance. I hope to see

Red Cloud Is A Good
Town For You To Live In
At the present tlmo thcro seems to
be a good-natured rivalry between
progressive towns of respectable pro
portions to make "our town" a good
place to live In. On every hand can
be found evidence of this comraenda
bio spirit being fostered in our midst
the friendly competition of truftic,
the observance of social amenities, tho
support of church and school, tho
beautifying of home and environment
and all else comprising to that end.
These, and more, may bo seourod
by well directed human elfort, but in
dividual nor municipality cannot maku
to order that chief consideration of
desirability for resilience known as a
Red Cloud Is so situated that tlio
porous soil has a perfuiit drainage,
which necessarily makes it an ex
tremely healthy section. The w intern
me leasotiubly mild, ulhoiigh the
thcimnmctcr at. times legisters ex
tieme cold. Tho heats of summer aio
moderated by tho cooling bieezes and
by the almost iinliiilliig coolness of
the nights. Tho tstpid radiation of
heat into . elcnr and uloudlus sky
causes a delightful change at night
fall. The climate is favorable to health
and vigor, and proves Indeed a benull
cent sanitarium. I
Practically speaking, emitHgion has
ever been un unknown quantity her''
The eMreuio purity of tint wvtt-. hut
had much to do with this condition.

When thu sun dually btokc through

all parts of the state The fair grounds
owing to tlie system of walks between
buildings, became dry within a short
time. The Lincoln Tolephono and
Telegraph company sent u bulletin to
all the exchanges in the South Platto
country and tills message was repeat
ed over the principal faun lines, ex
plaining the condition on the grounds
The Nebraska Telephone company did
similar wotk in tho North Platte
The bulletin work continued until
one o'clock Wednesday night and
doubtless was of Immense' vuluo to the
fair management It also showed the
wondeiful organization of the tele-
phono companies and their ability to
givo prompt soi vice in emergencies.
As pastor of the Congregational
