Joint Gillinit's Rapid Promotion.
John Gillings , chief clerk of
U. S. Inspector's Division , No 7 ,
located at Cheyune. Wyo. , arrived
in the city Sunday night from
the west to spend the holidays
with his parents , Mr. and Mrs.
William Gillings.
John is one of the graduates of
the Broki n Row Business College
who is making good .it a rapid
rate. About two years ago he
entered the government employ
as stenographer and clerk of the
U. S. laml office at North Platte
at a salary of $000 1 n the course
of six months his salary was
raised to $1000. Last spring he
was promoted to the position of
chief clerk of Government Land
Inspector's Division No 7 , located
at Cheyenne at a salary of $1320.
He has now accepted the position
of clerk of the federal court at
Cheyenne to which he is to be
tranferrcd Febuary 1 , 1910 , at
double the salary he is now re
ceiving. His rapid rise is solely
on his faithfulness as he has no
friends on the inside to boost for
him. His achievement should
be an incentive to other young
men to thoroughly master what
they undertake and be taithful
in whatever they may engage.
Eli And Jane.
Did you ever sit on a mossy
bank and look at the sun-kissed
brook as it merrily dances in glee
around the protruding pebbles
ami feel glad that you were
alive ? Well that is the same
sensation that you experience
when you go to see Eli and Jane ,
the clever show that is to be here
Dec. 31st. It is a laughing ,
bubbling pure heart and home
story. When the curtain drops
on the last act you feel as though
you had been refreshed by a drink
of good cool spring water. Harry
Green in the title roll is enough
to insure a good performance.

School work. Good music. Come

PROUD ?
WELL RATHER ! Why shouldn't we be justly
proud of such a remarkable line of pianos as these we

piano house ? LOOK FOR YOURSELVES ? The comparing , discriminating cus
tomer is the one we want to see ! That is the way WE buy instruments for Stock.

Coolers Discovery Declared A Pake.
Copenhagen , Dec. 21 , The
University of Copenhagen , the
firstiustitution of learning to re-
cognifte Dr. Frederick A , Cook as
he discoverer of the 'north pole ,
oil ay solemnly declared that the
explorer had failed to establish
he claim on which his high
louors had been based.
The committee appointed by
he university to examine Cook's
coords recently presented its
report to the consistory of the
uiivgrsity , which reviewed the
Icdttctions of the experts with
he greatest care and discussed
he findings from ever ) ' stand'
) oiut. That both the committee
ind the consistory were disap-
jointed was soon known.
The consistory met today and
adopted a written report to the
effect that the alleged records
submitted for examination by Dr.
Cook failed to prove his claim.
The report of the committee ,
of which Prof. Strotugren was
chairman , as presented to the
conais'ory , states that Cook's
japer are without any value ;
hat his report to the university
s practically as that published
n the New York Herald on his
return from his artic expedition.
The copies of his notebooks
submitted , says the committee ,
contain no original calculations
of observations but only results
thereof. Accordingly the com
tuittee concludes that he affords
no proof of having reached the
pole.
School of Agricullurcl Broken Bow ,
January 21-29 , 1910 ,
The profits in the pursuit of
agriculture are growing from
rear to year , and'it stands us in
lands to' make our labor and our
and produce all that is possible.
The day of large farms is gradu.
ally passing away , Instead of
extensive farming , intensive
farming is the coming method ;
consequently we should be pre-
xyrcd. Our federal and state
government are spending millions
n experiments to promote agri
culture and it is our duty to use
he results of these experiments
o our best interests.
Our state maintains a school of
agriculture but all of us cannot
attend , consequently the state is
bringing the school to us in the
orm of a short course. Our
county was favored last winter
with this short course and all
those who attended feel that they
were fully paid for attending it.
This year it comes to Broken Bow
again from January 24 to 29 ,
1910 , inclusive , Thecoursein the
short course in agriculture in
cludes soils and soil problems in
cluding field crops. Also dairy
ing and the dairy cow. The
lomestic science course includes
sewing , cooking and home nursing
singThere
There are very few of us who
understand soils or their condi
tions. We know that one method
of handling one kind of soil will
not be successful with another ,
consequently in this course we
have a chance to learn from the
different experiments.
Dairying is a thriving industry
and one method should be the
best. In this course we have
judging the dairy cow and every
thing pertaining to dairy pro
ducts. Last year the domestic
science class was enthusiastic
in fact it was over run , and i
will be the same this year.
In the short course of agricul
ture we want two hundred stud
ents men and boys. The tui
tion is only one dollarand it come
in a leisure season and assurdly
you will not regret attending it
We want three hundred pledges
in the men's department. We
will give two tickets to the
person securing the largest num
ber of bonafide pledges before
January IS , 1910 , and one tuition
ticket to a person securing the
second largest number of pled gen.
These pledges must be from
persons who will attend. The
institute officials and the Broken
Bow Commercial Club are
barred from this contest. Blank
pledges may be secured from J.
T. Wood , Broken Bow , or the
secretary.

C THEATRE TALK NO. 5.
' THE ENCYCLOPAEDIA BRITTANNICA has long been recogj
nized as the greatest of reference works , and is without question thi
greatest book of its kind that has ever been published in the English
language. IN ITS PAGES IT GIVES A LIST OP ONE HUNDRED
OF THE GREATEST BOOKS\
the world has ever produced.
Wholesome THE LIST IS HEADED BY
THEBIBLE"and well towards '
Story Well Told
the head is the greatest of alt
romantic novels ever written ,
ALEXANDRE DUMAS' "MONTE CRISTO. " It is from this
SPLENDIDLY WRITTEN ROMANCE that the stirring romantic
melodrama of the same name was dramatized. This famous work
appeared in 1844 and may be said to have excited more universal
interest than any romance since Robinson Crusoe or Waverly. THB
EXTRAORDINARY COLOP. , THE NEVER FLAGGING SPIRIT , tua
endless surprises , and the air
of nature which is cast over
even the most extravagant
situations make this play
worthy of the popularity it has
enjoyed in almost every countrj
of the world.
- IT IS SELDOM , IP EVER ,
that an adaptation for stage
presentation EXCEEDS IN
POPULARITY and general
favor that of the novel itself
However , that is the case with
"Monte Cristo" which hag had
the most solid success of any
book play known to theatrical
history. THE STORY IS A
MOST IMPRESSIVE ONE and
deals with all the PASSIONS
AND EMOTIONS. The play ,
which is in five acts , is provided
with a complete scenic investi
ture and the costuming is correct ( ONE !
and in accordance with tha period of the play. The trade mark
established by the management is "YOUR MONEY'S WORTH OR
YOUR MONEY BACK" so the public take no chances when this
sterling play is presented here. <
It is not of ten that a theatrical company visiting this city , will ,
as an evidence of good faith , give a public guarantee as to th
" excellence of the attraction , but
YOU CAN'T Fred G. Conrad , the manager oi
"Monte Cristo , " gives the fol
LOSE lowing Guaranteed Pledge :
HERE * "W hereby authorize tin
local manager in every tow *
that we jlay to guarantee it to be first-das * im every particular.
1 ha word 'guarantee' is much
overworked ; everybody can use it <
and almost everybody does. It'a a pity to see it abused ; 'guarantee *
is A good word when it means anything. We use it because w <
have made it mean something. Cut this out , take it with you H
the theatre , and if after the first act you are dissatisfied with tin
entertainment given , your money will be refunded. W personal ! !
guarantee the excellence bf thli attraction. " ' ;
