A Dream Odor
Philosophers have mused over the
subject of pleasing odors iu their rela
tion to the sense of smell but have
never determined just what the qualities
are that appeal or why they appeal
We only know that people vary widely
in what perfumes they like Once in a
great while some combination of scents
appears that charms everybody
is one of these It is impossible to
describe its piquant elusive charm but
you will be delighted with it

Prospects Are Encouraging
A government official has gone over
tho proposed rural free delivery routes
Nos 3 and and the The Tribune un
derbtands that the prospects are en
couraging for the final establishment of
these two routes
Proposed routo 3 runs directly south

posed route i runs wost of tho city on
the south side of the Republican river
About 140 families will be served One
carrier will serve both routes going over
the routes alternate days
It is contemplated to cut off a small
part of route ls territory and adding
the same to route No 3 If this is
done route 1 will bo extended south
ward correspondingly and reaching pa
trons in that neighborhood now beyond
the reach of No 1
The proposed service is needed and
The Tribune has much confidence
that the desire of that section of tho
county will bo realized as above indi

Most men who mingle with great
crowds or participate in an event of
many features are absolutely unable to
describe in detail any one particular
feature It is then that they find their
weekly newspaper most valuable Just
so it is with the readers of daily news
papers they have not the time or the
inclination to follow every phase of the
weeks events and so turn to a weekly
newspaper for a concise and connected
account of any event of more than local
interest This demand is easily sup
plied at small cost by The Weekly
