"EYES IN THE
BACK OF HIS HEAD. "
Olives \Veudall Holmes , Bales Girdley ,
credited with having eyes in the back of
his head , b'ecnuse he saw things behind
ns well as in front. This was all due tote
to his extremely large , old fashioned ,
round spectacle lenses , in which objects
behind him were plainly reflected. Prop
er glasses on defective eyes of the pres
ent day would enable their possessors to
see many things with perfect ease that
now seem dim and indistinct. Those
who hiue never availed themselves of
glass aid call spectacles "nuisances"
others who accept the aid in a timely
manner call them "blessings. "
Call them what ; you please
My glasses give j ou ease.
IOWA PRIAURV ELECTION.
The Administration Candidates Generally
The reports from the primary
election in Iowa held Tuesday
indicate that the administration
candidates v/ere generally suc
cessful by safe majorites.
The most pronounced was the
splendid-majority of Gov. Carrel
who won over his rival by twelve
thousand or more majority and
the two thousand or more ma
jority .withjv ich JU'Jge Walter-
J. Smith was re-nominated in the
ninth district over Attorney
General Byers. It was Gov.
Carroll and Judge Walter J.
Smith of Council Bluffs that
benator Cum tilings made his
special fight against.
The nomination of Frank
Prouty over Congressman Hull
does not have so much political
significance. While Hull stood
with the administration in con
gress he only won out by 40 votes
over Prouty two years ago.
Prouty was then and is yet
a Cummings man and not only
popular in the district but one
of the great orators of state and
a self made man. Proutys
success from a personal view is a
pleasure to the editor of the RE-
runuCAN as while we were not
class mates we were in college
together. His great success in
his native state has been watched
by us with pride.

BROKON BOW WILL CELEBRATE
Committees Appointed and All Arrange-
mcnfs Well in Hand.
Broken Bow has crawled out ofj
its old shell , that would admit of
a -Ith of July celebration once in
every four or five years and will
give the people of Custer county
a big entertainment.
This is not with the spirit of
runnirg in competition with any
other locality that want to cele
brate. It is due to the people of
the county who prefer to come to
Broken Bow that the business
men and citizens of Broken Bow
will arrange this entertainment.
One locality or town cannot
accomodate the whole people of
the county nor can any one
locality put on entertainment
that will meet the wishes of
every one even were they conven
iently located. It is an open
field and where ever a locality
has the desire let appropriate
programs for the occasion be
arranged and Old Glory unfolded
to the breezes in commemoration
of the achievements of our fore
fathers July 4 , 1776.
The following is a list of the
committees who have be n ap
pointed to make the arrange
