Fourth of Juljr Celebration.
A § far as we have been able to
learn tbe several localities .of tbo
county conoeods the exclusive right
to Broken Bow this year to celebrate
tbo Fourth of July. For oevoral
years Broken Bow has generously
waived her rights and joined witti
tbo neighboring towns and oora-
muuities in celebrating the day.
This act upon tbo part of our
citizens has removed the
spirit of rivalry and the
people of tbo county manifests a
desire to join with Broken Bow
this year in a grand celebration ,
where every body can oomo and
enjoy a cay oommonsrnate with the
oooassion. As it is now only about
six weeks before the date it is time
that steps were taken to make tbo
nooi'paary arrangements.
