A Farewell to Supt Thomas
The impromptu farewell tendered
Supt George II Thomas Monday eve
ning was characteristic of McCook and
measured up to the social traditions
which have made our city notable Tbo
occasion was a praiseworthy desire on tho
part of tho citizens of McCook to have
Mr Thomas carry with him to his now
homo and avocation some adequate im
pression of tho high regard in which ho
is held hero where ho has served Mc
Cook with such efiicioncy and distinc
tion for tho past ten years as superin
tendent of our city schools The
Monte Cristo eafo provided tho sotting
for tho affair and o dainty dinner in five
courses was tho initial particular of a
social occasion in which much pleasure
and satisfaction was experienced by all
by Mr Thomas in learning from the
lips of his friends expressions of ap
preciation of his long and faithful and
successful suporintendoncy of our citys
pride heartfelt utterances each mingled
with but regret at tho separation of ties
closely united by tho hosts of tho eve
ning because it afforded them opportun
ity to utter some of tho many kindly
sentiments with which their hearts
were overflowing
At ten oclock the company to the
number of about forty was seated and
enjoyed tho following
Scared Fruit
Chicken Pelnil
Toast Sticks Celery
French Bean Salad
Boneless Chicken Boston Style
Tickled Tongue
Mashed Potatoes
Timbled Peas Lafayette Freres
Parker House Rolls
Ico Cream Assorted Cakes
Tea ColTco Iced Tea
Bon Bons Cigars
Then ensued the toasts of the eve
ning each vieing with another in ex
pressions devoid of perfunctoriness or
cant tho ensemble being a genuine
chorus of eulogy appreciation and pro
phecy of larger accomplishment yet to
be attained the only minor tone being
that of regret that McCook and ibe
state should lose his services for educa
tion There was however many an ar
dent hope expressed that Mr Thomas
would reap success and-
newly chosen business Those re
sponding to toasts to which no titles
were assigned by the ever clover and
humorous toastmaster George S Scott
were in their order
C H Boyle John Rice
J E Kelley Hon G YV Norris
F M Kimmell Geo E Thompson
J F Forbes Rev M B Carman
The reply by Mr Thomas was in kind
and earnestness such as has gamed for
him note even in Btate gatherings for a
cleverness and facility and lucidity rare
and attractive His diction and de
meanor left no room or occasion for
doubt that he deeply appreciated the
occasion and the friendship expressed

Own up Every normal human
being likes pictures and likes to make
them Further it is an art worth
while It gives pleasure it developes
the artistic sense it gives you a pictor

value with advancing years
The money necessary to buy one will
most likely be spent any way in useless
things Waiting until you have a sur
plus for the purchase is apt never to
come If you want a camera buy it
now You will be glad you did In
making a selection our stock and our
experience will be invaluable to you
It will prevent a mistake and insure
the utmost economy in any case We
have the Eastman cameras and every
thing in photo supplies
