USTER OUNTY i VOL. XXVII BROKEN BOW , CUSTER COUNTY NEBRASKA , THURSDAY , JUNE 3 , 1909 WILL IMPROVE PUBLIC SQUARE E. C. House Offers to Start Necessary Fund 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. E. C. HOUSE. 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 ! HON. W. E. ANDREWS HERE TUESDAY 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. G. A. R.
