" 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.

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. W. J. Rice , of Merna was in the city Monday. I The Business of Ihr. U S. Land Office for May. The business of the U.

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 ments. Executive Committee. J. S. Baisch , chairman , J. S. Molyneux Secy-Trcas. Frank Kern E. A. Lucke , J.
