It long ago seoraed as thougl
shoes could never be better and
never be cheaper , but they arc
better now and cheaper now than
ih y ever wore before. The greai
every day favorite is our men'e
and ladies' shoe. It is as much a
boon to the pocketbook as it is to
the feet. It won't wear you out
to wear it out. You don't need to
take care of it ; it takes care of
itself. It will give you solid com
fort for the simple reason that a
better shoo for knockabout pur
poses has never been produced.
If prices never appealed to you
before , the price of this shoe will ,
for it costs only § 2.50. It will
look nicer and wear longer than
any shoe on earth.

The great universities were not estab-
ished at Lincoln because the slate
penitentiary , asylum and other institu-
ions were there , nor because Lincoln's
police courts show up a pretty lively
business. But because it was eminent
ly business-like to do so. The Wes
leyan Seminary for the West Nebraska
Conference will most likely be estab
lished at McCook because it will be
strictly business to do so. Chancellor
Creighton and his associates have re
sponsible business sense.

the poor , the needy and the good , and
selfish greed of those who might assist
them if they would. It gives this man
ly breast a pain that shoots from side
to side , to see a thimbleful of brains
puffed up with foolish pride. It fills
his cup of misery when modest girls
chew gum , or when a Keeley graduate
goes back to guzzling rum. Drift in

necessary friction , that more satisfactory

people are entitled to good service and
ire willing to pay for it , and they are
weary of this water works fight.

Colonel Ilatfield pere is feeling very
merry these day of peace on earth and
good will to men and projects vast and
schemes galore scamper through his
fertile think pot in happy profusion
and gay abandon. First in importance
is the proposition to Jay out 4,000 lots
in his River Side addition. He wil
list the property low and expects the
entire 4,000 lots to go like hot griddle
cakes smothered in gravv.
Another enterprise , the contcmpla
tion of which has kept the Colone
awake o' nights , is an electriis or able
line which he expects to build connect
ing the city with Wesleyan Seminary
place. It must be admitted that Major
Campbell is more or less mixed up in
this stupendous undertaking ; and that
Deacon Morlan is very desirous of get
ting in the ground-floor in the scheme.
It may be stated in this connection
ihat the rumor that Colonel Hatfield is
a large holder of the North Side Irri
gation Ditch stock is a lie from the
pit , as bald as Bob Ingersoll's impos
ing dome of thought.
