VOL. XXVIII BROKEN BOW , OUSTER COUNTY NEBRASKA , THURSDAY , MARCH , 3 , 1910 NO. 39.
Opened Eebruary 22nd. to the
Public and to All who De
sire Good Reading1.
The past week has been
Library week in our town. The
Broken Bow Library Association
has been in existence for twenty-
five years but never till this year
have they owned property , or
have they been able to say to the
public , "Come and see us , you
can have any book in our Libra'
ry to read free of charge. "
They have in the past few
weeks bought new books and fur
niture and have fitted up their
building with shelving and book
cases and are now ready to supply
the public with the best books
and high class reading matter.
Under the direction of Prof.
Elliot and Judge Humphrey
they have bought reference books
which will be ot great help to the
high school boys and girls and in
fact to all school children.
February 22nd , Washington's
Birthday , is also the birthday of
the "Broken Bow Free Library"
for on that day the ladies of the
association voted to have a Public
Free Library , where our boys and
girls and all who may wish , can
go and obtain any book in the
library to read free ot charge.
The association wishes to im
press the iact on the public that
this is not for the favored few ,
but for those who cannot afford to
buy books , they wish to put good
reading matter into every home ,
to supply the boy or girl who has
not had the chance to obtain
By paying a tee of one dollar ,
any man or woman can now be

of the organization.
Now that the ladies have made
it possible for all to become
members , they hope that every
business man and woman and
every mother will join the associ
ation and help along in this good
The Ladies have done their
part , now it is up to the public
to do theirs , the members who
have worked so faithful these
many years are still willing to
work and do all in their power
to make thh one of the best and
most successful libraries in the
Those who cannot afford to
pay the fee of $1 will be just as
welcome to books free ot charge.

and all pledged their loyal sup
It is the wish of the associa
tion , that as soon as a sufficient
number of new members can be
secured to call a public meeting ,
to elect officers and a board of
directors. So when the ladies
call on you to help support this
most noble enterprise , don't turn
them down , pay your dollar so
that you may have a voice and a
vote in the management , vthe
organization. We find that tfie
property owned by the associ
ation is valued at about $1200
including everything. Now the
question stands , if the women
have accomplished that much ,
can we as citizens of Broken Bow
and Custer county afford to let
this matter drop ? Can we afford
to let our boys and girls read
books that we do not approve of ?
I hope I hear a thousand nos and
I hope 1000 of you will go and
pledge your support , for remem
ber it is only Sl. About thirty
have already pledged their sup
port. Remember a library , like
any-other kind1 of business , can
not be run without money.
To my friends : Having sold
my office property , and Real-
Estate business with list of same ,
together with my good wishes
to'Mr. C. W. Bowman , I take
this method to thank you one
and all , for your friendship and
cordial support in the past. I
most heartily recommend my suc
cessor Mr. Bowman to you as a
gentleman and an honorable
business man to whom you can
safely entrust your business. I
will be found at the old place for
a short time , until I can close up
my business. J. M. Fodge 39-tf

Office of County Sup't.
Dear Fellow Teacher : I am
arranging for a teacher's meeting
to be held at Mason City on Sat
urday March 5th 1910 to discuss
some important and live questions
and also to consider some plans
relative to the Eighth Grade ex
aminations and Commencement
and the Junior Normal.
Owing to lack of time I have
not had opportunity to confer
with the teachers in regard to
the program as much as I should
and am therefore taking the
liberty of arranging the program
and trust it will meet with the
approval and co-operation of all
the teachers of your section.
I trust that you will show your
professional interest by coming
out and taking part in the dis
cussions and urging others to
attend. Your pattons would no
doubt be interested in the meet
ing and should urge them to
attend. All teachers in the vici
nity of Anslcy as well as these
around Mason are expected to be
present. Following is the pro
gram arranged for.
