9 AS THE FOOD
The better the food the healthier the
man. Every man, if he values himself,
insists on pure, good, sweet butter and on
really fresh eggs. Our reputation for sell
ing fine butter and eggs is perfectly well
established in this community. Our gro
ceries arc the best in town for the money.

A well graded jard or lawn planted
with ornamental trees, vines or bright
flowers, Is one of the most attractive
features that will help the appearance
of your home.
Now that the electric light plant Is
o a paying basis why uot light up
' Webster street? A Tew modern lights
aloag our streets would transform the
appearauce of our city. The cost
would not be large and it would pay Id
comfort, adtei Using and satisfaction.
We are all looking for warmer weath
er to cone so that the Mayor may Ismio
his proclamation requesting every one
to cleau up. At one of the business
men's dinners there were several good
plana advocated for a clean up day.
.Now is the time to get these pluns
ready and assist the city authorities.
Rev. J. L. Itoebe will deliver the
anniversary address to the Odd Fellows
this year cm Sunday, April '25. This is
the first time in fourteen years that
the order In this olty has observed this
day. Preparations Bro being made for
the event and we niRy confidently e..
peet that the attendnnre will be large.

wholesome of all
Purity Uutter Co.," for one hundred
thousand dollars was due to exploita
tion. It says that the promoters de
liberately fleeced the confldlug public
which purchased "atock" in this con
cern. We would very much like to see a
flower garden on every dwelling place
in the city this summer. Nothing
cheers the passer-by like a profusion
of beautiful flowers. At the faimer's
institute held here last fall it was
shown that this country is well adapt
ed for the cultivation df all kinds of
floweis and specific information was
given how to do this in the best man
ner. By all means let this bo n banner
year for flowers.
Some time ogo the Chamber of Com
meice decided to invito the inter
school track enthusiast to meet in
this city. It will takt s..mu prepara
tion to conduct this affair with success
nud the time touoinment'e to get ready
is at hand. It will uot be long before
this event and this oily should do
everything In its power to make this a
success, It will not be a success if the
preparations and arrangements
left to the last moment.
There will not be many potatoes
planted this year on Good Friday. The
oldest inhabitant says that this is the
first lime iu the history of this couuty
that such a condition existed. How
ever he sajs that he will tuke his axe
and chop u hole in the ground aud
plant one potato anyway and that will
Insure the rest of the crop if the time
ever comes when the fields can be
plowed. Those who miss out still
have the hundred da)8 and we may
have potatoes after all
The delegation of boys from the
agricultural cluss who are iu Lincoln
attending the annual stock judging
contest conducted by the sUte uni
versity will have an experience that
will remain with them for many years
after they have been graduated ' from
school. Each boy will judge nil stock
and the best judge will draww,n;prjze.
This prlie however wlll.be, the least
valuable part of the program. The
boys will learn by actual judging and
the ndvice of the experts just what
goes to make tip a good horse, a good
cow or n good hog. Many n man has
learned when too late that he could not
judge a horse and it lins coat some
men tunny dollars and n great deal of
vexation simply because they could
not tell a good horse from u poor one,
Doys who expect to become farmers
need to know how to judge stock and
this experience will enable them, in
connection with their studies In the
high school, to intelligently carry on
their business without any haphazard
LHst week's issue of the Chief con
tained an engraving of the domestic
science class of the high school, itud
the paper was printed in green ink.
The editor gave as n reason for the
latter 'stunt'1 the fnct that both St.
Patrick and himself had a birthday
last week, but the excuse was too thin.
We don't know just whatRomeof those
maidens have been doing to Itro Mo
Arthur, but we can see through it nil
a deep-laid plot to get revenge by
minting the whole class green. This
should bo n lesson to the young ladies
if thoy are again tempted to be disre
spectful to a bachelor editor. Webster
Wo appreciate the fact that Bro.
Wilson noticed ttie enterprise on our
part in pi luting the domestic science
class engraving also the fact of the
paper being printed in a color in keep,
ing with St. Patrick's day, and while
we have always given Bro. Edsou
credit for being a deep thinker, yet
confess lie shows ability along this line
beyond the average in seeing "the
deep laid plot oto". While wo do pot
deny the bachelor editor po'sition, yet
we have uut as yet found the. i ame ,tq

developing into a real stateamau aud
aud it is believable that he may cross
swords with Keavls for congressional
houors at the next primary. Nichols

Representatives Thad Scott of Ham
ilton county offered a motion Satur
da; that the House cease giving so
much attention to matters concerning
Omaha aud Lincoln, aud devote a little
more time to legl-dntiug for the "un

democrat but he has all of the fighting
qualities of the uutei rifled populist of
twenty years ago.
There has been little railroad legls

feet along the main line.
Consolidations of departments aud
bureaus has had its full share of atten

down the high salaried heads or de

or, in some Instances, cut a little, but
nowhere has' there beon a 'raise. It is

Taylor of Custer started something
when ho demanded a stricter account

his fight but he has not lost his cour
age and, although he resigned from
the committee in charge of school fi
nances, he is working as diligently as
any of the members to get at the fuels

public to the necessity for a more dis

The state constitution provides that
the biennial meeting of the legisla
ture must be in session for not less
than sixty days or more than ninety
days. Iiy the time this has been print
ed in the weekly papers the House will
have been in session the minimum
number of days but the Senate is four
days behind aud consequently the ses
sion can uot close before next Tues
day with strong probability that joint
adjournment can not occur before
