we are like the young boy that
leayes home for the first time
there's man } ' pleasant recollec
tions about the old spot over there
on the north side , where we did a
successful business for more than
12 ' years. The pleasant neigh
bors , the ever faithful , sturdy
customers who learned by experi
ence to know that ) an article
bought from us was right , not
only in quality but in price as
well , together with the persistent
labor which we always devote to
our business in the search for up-
to-date merchandise at lowest
prices j , all combine to impress our
minds with solemn thought. But
we are not sobbing ; we're still
like 1 the young man but with a
new found joy. We are now
pleasantly located in our elegant
newly fitted store room , 4 doors
north of Broken Bow State Bank

meet all our friends. Our buyer

successful trip east , and we are

Thanking our inuny friends lor
past favors , and assuring them
of our ability to more than main
tain the record in the future , we
are , most truly ,

The City Election.
The city election Tuesday , aa
usual , was hotly contested in a
riondly way , both upon the ques
tion of saloon license and the can-
lidales for office. Both the repuh-
icau and citizens tickets wera
jledged to carry out the will of the
as expressed at Uio polls.
lrom the result of the vote it in
dicates that practically all the
icenso voters uupported the citizens
ticket a well as a large number of
the furiiouitUb who voted against
license. The fact that the republi
can nomiuefti were anti-license did
nut have sufficient weight to over
come their prejudice against the
name republican. But many re
publicans who wore moru in favor
of licanse thap they were in the
success of the republican nominees
voted for the licunso nominees and
lor license. The out come is , we
have a council who are in favor of
hoeUHe , but are pledged again * ! by
the popular votu. The situation is
amusing , and , is anything but sat
irfaotorj to thu duoccsfful candi
dates. And what makes it still
moru interesting , as well an em-
barraMiung , IH the fact that the re
cent legislature passed a law extend
ing the term of office of all city
officers to two year * Some who
have been elected have uxpreisud an
inclination to deoliup to accept because -
cause license did not carry. But
wo do not anticipate so rash a step
will be seriously contemplated by
any of those who have been chosen.
It would not bt conmstant nor the
right thing to do under the oiroum
Btancea. They accepted the nom
inations with the situation plainly
before them and pledpod I hem-
helved in a published statement that
if elected they would abide by the
will of the majority. This we be.
heve they will do. They are men
fully capable to till the several
positions to which they have been
elected , and they have the welfare
