Wlllard F. Dalloy , secretary of

Wouldn't that swell your thoughts ?
It may happen.
When a town Is growing so rapIdly -
Idly that Its schools become crowded
to such an extent that some of the
young * people of school ago are un

That a new thirty-five thousand dollar

wanting an education. Wo think
there Is some prospects of a bright
future. That's Broken Bow and for
all wo know may be the capital of
Nebraska some day.

riding on the rear end of a coal wag

was on the wagon until some time
after he had jumped off the wagon
