Lack of building material, caused
by the failure of manufacturers to
make delivery to the contractors put
the quietus on tho activities around
the new high school building for sever
al weeks, but we note that a number
of-brick rausons recently came to the
city, and upon passing by one may see
the men driving tiie one-wheclcd-vnri-able-speed-jitney
around the premises
and up steep inclines that would test
tho endurance of even a Ford. These
jitneys are loaded with brick and
"mud" and when they begin to move
it is pretty good evidence that the
loads they carry will soon bo converted
into a house of knowledge.
The three newspapers Advertiser,
Argus aud Chief nt Red Cloud are
taking on regular metropolitan airs,
the publishers having sigucd an
agreement to close their offices at 4:30
Saturday afternoons until the first of
September. The time is comiug in this
great and glorious country of ours
when every Saturday will be a half
holiday for practically everybody. Now
Zealand, one of tho best governed
countries In the world, has had such a
law for nearly a scoro of years, and
there is no other place on earth whero
labor is better employed and more
contented, whero crime is na little
known and the doors of the poor houses
have longslnco fallen from their binges
New Zealand is governed by the
mnsses soldiers of tho common good
and it was a printer who started the
movement to break away from tho
rule of British lords nnd the privileged
clilsses. Call it socialism or whatever
you choose, but tho New Zoalanders
are oue people that enjoy a nearly
perfoct government. Koncsaw Pro

Rulings of tho National Red Cross
Society specify 'that each town may
have their own organization but liat
all business must be transacted through
the county seat organization.
Present indication lead us to bellevo
that Webster county will contribute
her share towards the greatest polco
of phylanthrophy ever attempted by
any organization, in this or any other
land. ,
The Oil Boom is Progressing
A large nnd enthusiastic crowd at
tended the oil meeting at the Commer
cial Club rooms on last Thursday even
ing, the purpose of which was to go
further into the details of Red Cloud's
big oil boom, to elect a board of direc
tors and to transact such other busi
ness as came before the meeting.
Father Fitzgerald, Win. Weesner and
Mr. Pattersou, the gentleman respon
sible for the activities in this locality
along this particular line, Mr. Simpson
of Blue Hill, and Ifoy Hutchison of
Norton, Kansas discussed the prospects
after which a Board of Directors were
named, this body being composed of
Dr. Dnmcrell, Win. Weesnor, Geo.
Hutchison, C II. Potter, Clarence
Carpontor, B. W. Stewart and L. II.
An examination of. tho subscription
list bears evidence to tho fact that the
financial end of the matter was receiv
Ing'attcntiou. Many leness have beeu
secured, negotiations being made with
Oklahoma drillers and judging from
the general trend of-matters It appears
as though tbe seed that Promoter
Patterson has sown in this locality is
about to bring forth good fruit.

United Church Notes
Tho patriotic service Sunday even
ing was a success. Tho liouso was
crowded and tho children gave an ex
cellent program, A collection was ta
ken for the Y. M. C. A. work among
the soldiers. The United Church
people have subscribed and secured
pledges for this work to the amount of
about 8160.
Twenty flvo pledges for Red Cross
membership were secured at the Sun
day evening service.
The south side poople have raised
ten dollaps for Rev. Cole, formerly of
this city, as a moans of showing their
appreciation of a good mans work,
Mr. Cole la in feeble health.
t Sunday desecration is becoming a
notorious offense In our city and It is
about time for tho selfrcspectlng
people of the town and community to
express their feeling in effectlvo man
ner. For any group of men to sanc
tion such notorious disregard for the
Lord's Day is an open challenge to tho
church and a direct Insult to God.
