E. C. House Offers to Start Necessary
if Oilier Men Will Co-operate
House Will Gi > c $25 per lot for lots off
Public Square if Owners of lots on
Square Will gi\c S50
Editor Republican :
Now is the time to do some
effective work in fixing up and
beautifying the public square.
The city can do something toward -
< * * ' ward the work that should be
done. This will not only make
the square a more pleasant
place to rest and spend your Icis-
S ure hours but it will also raise
tlic value of the property around
the square. To get the matter
in definite form before the
people I wish to announce that I
will give $25 for each lot that I
own in blocks adjoining the pub-
lie square if the property owners
around the square will give $50
for each lot that they own.
The above statement speaks
for itself. If each one of the
property owners around the pub
lic square would give fifty dollars
lars per lot , it would raise a fund
of 82,000.00. This , together
with the'city's levy which will
raise about $900.00 , would make
it possible to employ a landscape
gardener , put in cement walks
through and around the park , re
build the band stand and put in
an elegant fountain with a stat
uary. Think of what a pleasure
it would be to spend your spare
time in such a place ; think of
the pride that you would take in
showing your friends through the
city park ; and last , but not least ,
think of the difference it would
make in the valuation of your
property !
Will Give Public Adrcss on "American
Ideals" in Temple Theatre.
Hon. W. E. Andrews , auditor
of the Treasury Department of
the United States , will give a
public address at the Temple
Hall on Tuesday evening , June
8. Mr. Andrews is one of the
most eloquent and impressive
speakers in the nation. His
knowledge of the financial cflairs
of the National government is
probably superior to that of any
other man living. Every citizen
should hear his presentation of
the subject , "American Ideals. "
This lecture while
, given as one
of the features of the Teachers'
Institute , will be absolutely free
to the general public.

cialion for Deference Shown.

Will Appear at Opera House Playinjj
Hamlet and Fausl.
It is indeed a rare thing- now
days lo have an opportunity of
seeing this great play properly
presented. Mr. Sanford Dodge ,
who vill produce it here , is a
brilliant young Shakespearean
actor and he brings his own ex
cellent supporting company with
him , with all special scenery and
accessories. There is enough in
the play of Hamlet to make a
dozeu modern plays. Mr. Dodge
plays it in five acts and thirteen
scenes and each and every scene
is a master piece of dramatic
coustra'ction and consumatc dra
matic art in its rendition. The
audience is held spell-bound
from the opening word to the
very last syllable. The inspir
ation , education and entertain
ment offered by this play makes
it worth five times the cost of
admission to every one , young or
old , irrespective of creed , color
or previous condition of servi
tude. You owe it to yourself as
a matter of self intellectual ad
vancement to attend this play.
Don't forget the date. Put off
all other engagements and see
