Real estate can be sold quickly
without too great a sacrifice
but it requires convincing ad
vertising and some little liber
ality of space.
The most interesting things in
a store are always advertised
and you can prove this to be
true by personal observation on
your next shopping trip.
If your advertising were some
body else's and you were to try
to judge the advertiser and his
store solely by it , wouldn't you
consider it too limited for a live
W. H. Osborn , candidate for
the office of county clerk on the
Republican ticket , is an upright
and honest young man , and as
he has filled the position of dep
uty in this office for the past
four years with due credit and
honor to himself , he is deserving
of the support of the voters of
Custer couuty at the coming
primary. Ausley Argosy.

'I he Callaway papers l st week
had big writings telling of a
large , enthusiastic division
meeting held over there on tht
south Loup , An eye wiluehs to
the meeting says that when the
time for the meeting rolled
around nobody was there. After
a time Col. K. I . Braga and one
of his lieutenants strolled around
to the hall and they went out
and nulled in a couple more
county seat boomers and they
had a monstrous division meet
VV. H. Oabortie , who has held
the position of deputy county
clerk for several years , will be a
candidate for the non.iuution for
couuty clerk. Mr. Osborne has
shown that he is perfectly com
petent , and by kind and courte
ous treatment to all who has had
business with him he has made
friends of them all. There is no
one more fitted for the place
than he is and we hrpj he will
receive the nomination Oconto
We note from the exchanges
that reach our desk that the
candidacy of Geo. 1C. Porter for
the office of register of deeds is
meeting with the approval of
the voters in all parts of the
couuty. Mr. Porter is well
known throughout the couuty as
an upright and straightforward
official , and when the opportu
nity is afforded the people of old
Custer to support a man of his
standing they do not hesitate iu
freely expressing themselves as
being ready to help him on to
victory. Ansley Argosy.

With him to be hard-headed and
practical , is to be hard-headed
and a practical dreamer , plan
ner , lie must see what he wants
his store to be ten years from
now and then , with , the aid ol
unprecedented advertising , he
aims to realize his teu-year-
ahead hopes in the space of two
years , or three. And , illogical
as it may seem , he can often do
it. It has been done in this
city. It is being done now in
At Mason City the village
election resulted in a victory for
the "drys , " thus interfering
with a saloon keeper's "personal
liberty" and putting him out of
business. Then the saloon
keeper started a pool hall , which
he operated until the village
board formulated an ordinance
and put him out of that busi
ness. So , to avoid the law and
ordinance , he continued to oper
ate the pool hall , but without re
ceiving pay for the games lie
was finally arrested for operat
ing a pool hall again , and swore
that he had received no pay for
the use of the tables. And ho
also did some other kinds of
swearing , but not in court. The
people opposed to the pool hall
are prepared to prove that he
did receive pay for the games ,
and have brought charges of
perjury against him. Where , oh
where , will this interference
with personal liberty and the en
forcement of the law end ? All
saloon keepers claim to be anx
ious to enforce the law , and
they are just like this one.

Rewarded are the good people
of Callaway and vicinity for
their admirable- restraint upon
horrified imaginations. For
some mouths back a spectral
beast has made life uncertain
for calves and colts in that sec-
lion. No effort availed to tracker
or trap the animal , and the mys
tery could but have been a strain
on the neighborhood nerves. In
the vicinity of any metropolitan
city this would have been a Ben
gal tiger escaped from a circus ,
or a Siberian lion come over by
way of Bering strait , or a black
hand s ciety at the least. Calm
Callaway never dreamed it was
anything more momentous than
a mountain lion and so has but a

The Donohoe uou-partians
judiciary law enacted by the late
legislature has been declared un
constitutional by the district
court of Lancaster county , Judge
Cornish. The court held the act
was a violation of Section 22 of

shall be no hindrance or impedi
ment to the right of a qualified
voter to exercise the elective
franchise , and that all elections
shall be free. "

That Was Given
T GOES without tmylng
that every boy ami girl In
Philadelphia knows per
fectly well how the signIng -
Ing of the Declaration of
Independence was cole-
hrated In that city , and
yet It aeeniB well , now
that the anniversary of
our country's birth Is BO near at hand ,
to read once more of that which was
done In the principal cities In the
way of rejoicing by those who stood
within the shadow of the scaffold , be
cause of daring to declare themselves
free from all allegiance to the king.
AH n matter of course , the firtt re-
rejolclng was Indulged In when the
old bell In the steeple of Independ
ence hall rang out Its notes which
proclaimed "Liberty throughout all
the land , unto all the Inhabitants
thereof ; " but It was not until the
eighth of July that any grand demon
stration was made by the people.
Then , as we are told "from the plat
form of un observatory erected near
the Walnut street front of the state
house by Hlttenhouse many years be
fore for the purpose of observing a
transit of Venus , John Nixon read the
Declaration to a vast concourse of
people gathered from the city anil sur
rounding country. When the reading
was finished the arms over the seat
of justice iu the courtroom were torn
down and burned In the street ; In the
evening bonfires were lighted , the
houses were illuminated and It was
not until a thundershower at midnight
compelled the people to return to
their homes that the sounds of glad
ness were hushed. "
Washington received the Declara
tion at headquarters In New York , on
the 9th of July , and caused It to bo
read at six o'clock that evening at
the head of each brigade. It was
heard with attention , and welcomed
with loud huzzas by the troops.
Mr. Todd In his "Story of New
York'1 writes regarding the scene :
"One of the brigades was honored by
the presence of the commandor-in-
chief. It was drawn up In : i hollow
square on the historic Common.
Within the square Washington sat on
horseback , while an aide In a clear
voice read the Declaration. Next
morning , at White Plains , the pro
vincial congress listened to the read
ing , and at its close pledged them
selves to sustain it "at risk of their lives
and fortunes , ' and then sent a swift
messenger to the Now York delegates
In congress , empowering them to vote
for the Declaration. They had It pro
claimed by beat of drum in White
Plains , and ordered that It should be
publicly read from the city hall In
Wall street , within reach of the guns
of the British fleet. "
In Boston on the 17th of July the
Declaration was publicly read , and
concerning the celebration , Mr. Gil-
man says In his "Story of Boston : "
"The day of the Thursday lecture
was set apart for the reading of the
Declaration , and after a good sermon
the congregation followed the crowd
to King street. The town was
thronged by crowds In holiday suits ,
with joy beaming from every eye. Ar
tillery was drawn up In front of the
Jail on Court street , and Infantry lined
the adjoining streets. Exactly as
the clock struck one , Col. Thomas
Crafts appeared on the balcony of the
state house , and read the Declaration ,
the great audience listening with at
tention to every word. When ho sat
down n shout , "God save our Ameri
can states ! " was heard In the hall , to
which the throng below responded
with three hearty cheers ; the bells
rang , cannon were discharged from
the shipping and from the forts and
batteries , the Infantry followed , and
Mr. Bowdoln gave the sentiment , 'Sta
bility and Perpetuity to American In
dependence ! ' The bettor class of
citizens attended a banquet in the
council chamber ; much liquor was
distributed to the populace , according
to the old custom , and the king's arms
were taken down from the town
house , custom house , courthouse and
other places and consumed In a gen
eral bonfire in front of the Bunch of
Grapes tavern. "
There was rejoicing throughout all
the "rebellious colonies ; " but , unfor
tunately , no detailed account of the
festivities can bo found. Watson , in
his "Annals of Philadelphia" writes
regarding the ilrst Fourth of July cel
ebration in that city , 1777 :
"Tho 4th of July , being the Ilrst
anniversary , was celebrated at Phila
delphia with great display and joy
About noon all the armed ships and
galleys were drawn up before the city ,
with their gay streamers flying. Atone
ono o'clock , all the yards being
manned , they severally flred 13 guns.
An elegant dinner was given to the
congress , the civil and military o Ul
cers , etc. The Hessian band played
seine Una music , and at each toast
there was a discharge of artillery.
Towards evening .several troops of
horao , n corps 6t nrtlllory and n bri
gade of North Carolina , forces , were
drawn up in Second street , and re
viewed by congress and iho general
officers. At night there was ringing
of bells and a grand xhlbltlon of lire-
n'Jlhtf Common nnfl wx IfcJ
boused. Tho-faco of
was universal. "
