We notice from the Elaine
County Booster that Carl Ams-
"berry ot Mason City is the asso
ciate editor of that paper. Carl
is the oldest son of J. M. Atns-
berry and has practically been
brought up in a printing office
and ought to make good. The
REPUBLICAN hopes for his suc
The Beacon's offer to "give $10
lor a valid reason why a man
living m Custer county should
vote to uphold a protective tariff"
seems to be all wind. We gave
the Beacon four good reasons two
weeks ago and as yet have not
seen a red cent. Until we can
lave some real evidence that the
offer is genuine we do not deem it
wise to advance other reasons ,
for fear of being accused of cast
ing our "pearls before swine. "
Governor Shallenberger has
decided not to call an extra ses
sion of the legislature in order
to pass an initiative and refreu-
dum law. His decision not to
call the extra session in face of
the fact that the Bryan forces
liad secured a pledge from three-
fif ths-of the members of the legis
lature that they would support
the bill would indicate that the
governor and Mr. Bryan are not
eating their ice cream out of the
Bame dish in this campaign.
The time has come when every
body in Broken Bow should urge
the building of better sidewalks.
Most of our board walks are in a
bad state of repair. Then there
s re several residence
no walks simply because one or
1 wo parties do not care to go to
the expense of putting in cement
c r brick walks on their property
unless they build their walks so
t hey can get out without wading
1 hrough mud. Let the agitation
liecome general. If necessary the
council should plan a system of
walks throughout the several
residence districts leading to the
business part of town and pass

The remark is frequently heard
to be made by strangers that
Broken Bow is behind the times
with her side walks. This should
not be. Let us begin at once to
put in a complete line of walks.

THE FOURTH OF JULY COMMITTEE
ENGAGES A DARING ATTRAC
TION FOR THAT DAY
DOES EIGHTEEN FOOT DROP
Professor Arthur llalloway Hold Audi
ence Spellbound During
The members of the Fourth
of July committee of Broken Bow
wanted to give the people of this
city and surrounding country
something out of the ordinary
for a free attraction for the
Fjurth and after considerable
correspondence and at no small
expense have secured Proffessor
Arthur Holloway , of Chicago ,
one of the greastest aerial artists
that this country has ever known
to give * two performances of his
thrilling act of dropping back
wards from the topof an eighteen
foot ladder , lighting on his hands
turning a somersault in the ail
and then lighting on his feet.
This act is one that has receiv
ed brilliant press notices from all
over thu country , owing to the
Jact that during this drop Prof.
Holloway holds the audience
spellbound. Should he vary from
bis course two or three inches
while performing this seeming
impossible act he would break
his neck. Many aerial artists
have endeavored to learn this act
but none have ever succeeded ,
several having been killek or
crippled for lile.
The age of darii g feats is at
iis height and the committee in
order to show that this city couid
have first attmctionssecurtd
Proffessor Holloway. The per
formances will take place at 1.30
p. ui. and 7 p. m. No one should
miss this , no doubt , their last op-
port unity to bee Professor Hello
way , the dare devil of the air.
On Monday evening Mrs.
U'tJryan entertained at a seven
o'clock dinner in honor of her
daughter Nellie. Covers were
laid for fourteen. The decor
ations were pink and white.
Plearts of pink and white were
suspended from each corner ot
the room to the chandelier over
the center ot the table where a
pretty little brass cupid was pos
sible , and delicate streamers of
pink and white satin ribbon fell
gracefully from the hands of
the cupid to a single long stem
med piak carnation at every
cover. Glass candleabras with
pink shades stood in the center
and at each end of the table.
