(JAItriKLI) COMMUNITY DAY
ATTUACTKI) LARGE CROWD
Sunday was a big day at tho Gar
field Community church. It was
Community Day and the Community
was there. Approximately there-hundred
took dinner and wore present for
the nftcnoon service. People canio
from Superior, North of Guide Rock,
Lester, Inuvalo, Cowles, Burr Oak,
Kansas ami other distant towns. It
was a day of inspiration and profit
to nil. A finer audience nnd a finer
group of people never assembled for
a social or religious occasion.
The dinner wns a spread of high
order expressive of the ability of the
good mothers and (laughters of the
country and indicative of the prosper
ity of tho homes in spite of the back
wardness of tho times. It was a real
pleasure and a joy to o'd residents to
moot nnd greet one nnother and for
the younger to pass friendly smiles,
glances nnd happy words. Tho social
value of tho occasion cannot ho estimat
The day opened with the Sunday
School session at 10:00 followed by
the morning sermon nt 11:00. The
themo wns "Our Heritnire and Re
sponsibility." Tho main idea of tho
discourse was that we have received
a g.eat heritage from the preceding
goncr.Uijiis national y, iiitel'ectlualy,
religiously and in tho Chiialinn homes
that are ouis. We did not create
these institutions, they came to us,
and wo are ieionsib'c to the present
generation, the furturc generation and
to God for the r ght use of them. Wo
a o to pass them on to the succeeding
generations, bettor and of greater val
ue than we received them.
The afternoon prngrnm was one of
real value, and much nnnrcciatcd.
The male quartette composed of
Messrs. N. B. Bush, Halbcrt Thomas,
Jesse Wagoner and Ira Wagoner did
work of high order. They sang most
effectively "My Anchor Holds" and
"The Church in the Wildwood." Mrs.
F. R. Hughes was at her best when
she rendered fThe Heavenly Song."
The keen interest and marked silence
by which the rendition was received
indicated tlic, excel jence of the music.1
The help of Messrs. Howard Parson's,
coVnctist and .Frank' Lippi'ncott, sVx--
ujinuimv wus niuai upjircciuieu. a ney
did 'good work, and gave a valuable
addition to the music of the occasion.
The addresses were given by Rev?
Frantz of"licd Cloud, Jesse WngbrieV
of, Hastings, 'and Rev. Eshelman of
me (jommunuy cnurcn. itcv. r raniz
spoke of vision before him as to tlyx
future of this work, pointing out the
possibilities and opportunities of Com
munity work. Mr. Wagoner gave per
sonal experiences of how a Colorado
community was changed by the erec
tion of a Community Hall and the
folks for miles around making this
Hall the center of interest. Rev.
Eshelman advanced the idea that the
interests in life are six in number,.
.these (being the .intellectual, spcjal,
economical, physical, civic and spirit

Today we me'eta's a community hence
the church is interested in all the
spheres and will exert all of its ln
fuence to better life at all points.
The evening sermon was well at
tended and the interest good. After
several songs led by Mrs. Ira Wagon
er at the organ and Howard Parsons
on the cornet, it was decided to meet
on Wednesday evening of this week
at the home of Ira Wagoner to begin
practicing as a community chorus and
orchestra, looking forward to evenings
of special music. All young men and
women, as well as older ones, arc re
quested to be present. Bring your
The evening sermon was from Luke
2:52 on the subject "The Symetry of
Life." The successful life is one which
is developed physically, mentnlly,
spiritually and socially. If any of
these are neglected the life is lop-sided
and hence loses tho beauty and
power that God planned it to have.

COUNTY SCHOOL NOTES
(By County Superintendent)
Tho Webster County Schoo's took
twenty-eight premiums at tho State
Fair seven firsts, eight seconds,
eight thirds, throe fourths and two
fifths: Wo might easily have taken
a great manv more and much tnnro
money than the $23.75 which it netted
us. I nm soon sending oujt-the prem
ium lists for the Webster County Agri
cultural Society. This is a copy of
the State Fair list. I am anxious to
have the lists of the Bladen Fair, the
State Fair and tho Agricultural So
ciety all tho same so that the schools
jean work to better purposo and can
do all of the classifying of their work
themselves. They know what they
are tryingto pUfAcrosfe belter' than
any outsider no matter how 'interest
ed the party maybeVirtfce list is
not satisfactory, itfshouldrfitill fab Al
lowed because, if it is not followed,
the work doe's not get' recognition.
There was a large exhibit this year
that was splendid butthat trained no
prizes because there was no place on
the lists for it. Let us follow the
lists carefully next year and aim to
bring homo $100.00 at least. It can
easily bo done.
One little school, district CI, look
in eight premiums. It is a school
small in number and mostly made up
of small children but they worked with
a purpose and followed the rules set
down. It is good for children to be
able to follow instructions. It is good
for.them to put tip work that is 'to be
criticised for neatness and accuracy
and approximate perfection. It is
work with others 'of ' their cltlss and
see where they lack or excel.
Red Cloud took 'five firsts, Bladen
one, and Eckloy one. A lot of other
Schools deserve honorable mention .61
took a second on their handkerchiefs,
58 on their cut work. Guide Rock
and Blue Hill on their general exhibit.
It was all good but with a little more
care it could easily have been so
much better. Let's see what we renlly
can do next year.
