riNCE in a while we run across a man who Says,
Vy "Aw, they don't make cigarettes like they used
'q one's as good as another nowa-days." ' '
All right, we'll give that smoker any kind of odds he
wants on Spur and win hands down.
Perhaps you arc looking for that good old-time to
bacco taste. Spurs arc chock full of it. Couldn't help
tut be, with that jim-dandy blend of choice Turkish,
nc Burlcy and other homegrown tobaccos.
Light up a Spur take a long puff and quicker than
you can say "Jack Robinson" you will jump for a scat
on the Spur band wagon.
Spurs have another surprise for you they're
crimped, ot pasted. No other cigarette is rolled with
the erfmped scam, and you benefit by easier drawing,
longer burning, better taste.
And here's extra measure three-fold package of
, rich brown and silver to keep Spur3 fresh and fragrant
it ' usc dodging-Spurs meet you at every turn. -'

JOHN L. CHRISTIAN
John L. Christian of Red Cloud,
Nebraska, has passed to the other
He was born in Atchison county,
Missouri, on December' 28th, 1855 and
lived in this county until 1911 when
he removed to the city of lied Cloud,
Nebraska, whore he lived till his
death which occured October 21th,
He was laid away by his old friends
of mi earlier day, upon his former
home grounds near the cityof Tarkio.
The name "Christian" ranks in the
front, among a few grand old fam
ilies that arc honorably and inscpar-
bly blended with the history of Atchi
son county. John L. Christian was a
big member of this family. He was
a big man wherever ho was, at home
or elsewhere, a masterful man in all
the walks of life. He was fearless to
a fault. He was insistent nnd con
tentious for his ideas of right, yet
kindly disposed and forbearing. He
was both feared and respected by his
enemies If he had any, but it was m
fault of his if ho had an enemy, for
he never harbored ill will to any for
any length of time. He feared no
man, but preferred to render a benefit
rather than injury to any and all. His
judgment was sought by many and
philosophic counsel wbb heeded by all.
He was a big man among his many
friends in all the humblo walks of
life, and so .highly was ho prized that
he was called in counsel by the Gov
ernor of his state. Ho always" en
deavored to brighten up the corner
where he was, and taught all to look
on the bright side and not give way
to worry. .
Ho was a Democrat, and served 6
years as a member of the State
Democratic Central Committee under
the administration of Gov. Lon V.
Stephens. He was a member of the
State Board of Agriculture. He
was a warm personal friend and
confidential advisor of Gov. Joseph W.
Folk. No man ever ranked so high
that John L. Christian was not wel
comed to his innermost circle, and no
man ever fell so low by misfortune
or even crime but John L. Christian
would bo among the first to extend
the hand of welcome, back to favor,
fortune and rectitude.
His first love on this earth was his
own family, his second lovo was his
father's family, f after which his
friend&'tilp was valuable to all with
whom he came in contact. No dis
ttnee was ever too great, no weather
too cold or night too dark for John L.
to arise and go to the call of a Chris
tian in distress.
On March 28, 1876, he was married
toJMrirtha Haffner, who, with their
soni'F16yd, their daugthers, Hattie,
MirinieVimd Mary of Red Cloud, Ne
braska;fand their daughter, Mrs.
Wade .Tate of Tarkio survive him,
and' theyi have the profound sympathy
of their many friends in this county.
