RED CLOUD. NEBRASKA. JULY 12. 1923
Limbs of trees often make telephone lines
"noisy" or put them out of order.
This is especially true in wet weather; be
cause damp branches touching the wires are
likely to "ground" the telephone current.
Because it is essential to satisfactory tele
phone service that branches be kept away from
the wires, our workmen prune them in a way
that will not only improve the appearance of the
trees but will also lenghthen their life.
Help us keep the tfees from interfering with
the wires, especially in the rural districts.

A campaign for better homes in
America was conducted the week of
June 4th to 10th. In connection with
this there is being erected in the Na
t'onal Capital, a reproduction of the
famous "Home Sweet Home," house,
immortalized by John Howard Payne.
This building will cost $10,000, is be
ing erected and maintained under the
auspices of the General Federation
of Womorj's Ciub3, co operating with
Better Homes movement.
I have, more tian onco, expressed
myself to the effect Uiat I believe
we have too many special days and
special weeks, yet here ?s another m
week in which all can consistently
join. Everybody, I believe, would be
glad to 'have a better home. Some
of us cvnnot realize our ambitions
to have hotter homes of brick, mortar,
wood or stuco, but in the larger und
finer sense of the word, better homes
arc in icach of nil.
The hou?o does not necessarily
make tiic home, desirable as is a com
fortable, attracts e and inviting home.
The story is told of a poor woman
who was left a widow and with sever
al small childien to support. Finally
good fortune came her way and she
was able to build a new house. "A
friend congratulated her on the fact
she was to have a new home. "Why"
she answered, "I have had a good
home a long time, only I have co
house in which to put it." ThiR
would be a better world If this spirit
were more widely spread.
A great many heads of famines,
year after year, put off building a
new house, or making needed changeB
in the old one, always feeling, 'though
that the work is to be taken up soon.
After a while the children, for whom
such conveniences are desired, leave
the old home nest, and then it is
realized that the work, though it
were carried out, could not benefit,
aa once it might have, 'those that the
father and mother had in mind.
Building material may seem high,
yet, if one can afford it, now may toe
the best possible time to begin the
erection of a new residence or the
improvement of the old one. We ab
sorb environment, we take on some
thing of our surroundings. The
woman who works in a convergent
kitchen, for instance, or spends ner
spare hours in a light and cheerful
room, gets more out of life, and in
turn is able to contribute more to
Yes, the observance of Better
Homes Week is within reach of all.
It may not mean a new house. It
may mean merely a coat ot patnt,
or some other bit of brightening. It
might mean just a homesceatf clean
So all of us may nppropi lately and
with profit join in thh movement
which finds expression In the heart
touching song, "Home Sweet Homo."
