One Experience Enough
ArtPanteburg of the McCook Elec
tric Co force had an experience laBt
Thursday afternoon which nearly robb
ed hira of two syllables of his name
He was engaged on the main supply
lines between the plant and the round
house when he came in contact with
live wires carrying 2300 volts of the
fatal juice To thd fact that he only
touched the wire and his fingers or
hand did not grasp the wire he likely
owes his present good health The ex
perience gathered is sufficient for a long
while His fingers were not severely
burned and his neck still more slight
ly burned
Most hands are attractive if they are
properly cared for and the care given
showB prompt and satisfactory results
Have the necessary equipment handy
and make use of it for a moment or two
once or twice a day No matter what
you laok we have it
This is the season when the hands are
apt to need special attention This is a
good time to remember that we have
manicure goods here for you

Which Will Be Presented at the Temple
Theatre on the Opening Night
October 19th
This is a musical comedy with unique
characters and situations quite as rigid
as those used by the best known pluys
without music It would be interesting
if there were not a song in it but with
a pleasant accompaniment of attractive
music sung by well trained voices viva
cious dances and a dainty chorus intro
duced legitimately The play has all
the attractive features of both musical
and legitimate comedy During the
long run at the La Salle theatre in Chi
cago it was witnessed by many of the
so called first nighters who boasted
of never having witnessed a musical
comedy before It was a daily occur
rence to hear some one say I must see
A Girl at the Helm again before it
closes nGd if asked how many timeB
he had witnessed the performance the
chances were that he would replyWell
really Im ashamed to say
There is always a reason and a cause
for success and popularity which in
this case is that the authors struck a
new idea and the producer developed it
with unusual skill
A Lady Said
Show me your better prints your
6a and 7c ones I always buy the best
Her hand rested on a piece of Simpsons
print as sho spoke We sell them and
Americans and all the best prints made
for 5c Her trouble was that she neither
knew quality nor brands Her criterion
of value was simply price She had al
ways paid 6c or 7c or more and she
thought a print offered her at 5c must be
inferior Pleased to say that we helped
her to see through and a nice bill was
the result Our cash prices will benefit

A Farewell Social
The farewell social tendered their re
tiring pastor Rev M B Carman by
members of the Ladies Aid society of
the Methodist church last Friday eve
ning drew a large and enthusiastic
company of parishioners friends and
admirers to the church The occasion
disclosed a strength of friendship for
the retiring pastor perhaps never before
entertained for any pastor in the history
of the church
The league parlor was prettily and
appropriately decorated and arranged
for the occasion and in this room was
given the music literary program of the
evening as follows
Piano solo Mrs W B Mills
Vocal solo Miss Minnie Viersen
Vocal solo U Floyd Miles
Vocal solo Miss Lenora Dougan
Piano solo MisB Deborah Heckman
Vocal solo Miss Florence Rosebush
These were followed by brief talks by
Rev Edker Burton of the Baptist
church H E Culbertson O E Pear
son Supt C W Taylor F M Kim
After this brief program Rev Car
man responded briefly to the friendly
sentiments expressed by the speakers
of the evening and refreshments were
announced in tho basement
One of the incidents of the evening
was the presentation to the retiring pas
tor of a purse of generous proportions
In toto it was a splendid expression of
the high regard of many friends within
and without the church a compliment
to any citizen
E C Hill served graciously as chair
man of the evening
The boys who broke into the old pow
er house of McCook Electric Co and
took out porcelain receptacles parts of
metors and other electrical supplies
had better return them to the compa
nys office and there will be nothing
done Parents knowing their boys to
have this material in their possession
will do well to see that it is returned
otherwise they will be arrested and ex
amples made of them

Praise From Chicago Dallies
The most marvelously enthusiastic
notices over given by the Chicago news
paper critics to any play since the first
theatre was built in the Windy Cityare
accorded the musical comedy A Girl
at the Helm which was presented to
capacity audiences for 300 performances
at the La Salle theatre The book and
lyrics are Robert B Smiths and Ray
mond Hubbells authors of A Knight
for a Day
Percy Hammond of the Evening Post
and Chicagos foremost critic said A
Girl at the Helm is far and away ahead
of the copious output of the Adams
Hough and Howard outfit authors of
A Stubborn Cinderella and Honey
moon Trail Its characters are more
attractive its story being more interest
ing and consistent and its wit more spon
taneous The piece is beautifully dress
ed in bilk and satin and its dancing
numbers thanks to Mr Al Holbrook
are without exception poetic and grace
Mr Burns Mantle of the Chicago
Tribune agrees with Mr Hammond in
the following words A Girl at the
Helm is in every way a decided ad
vancement upon any other musical com
edy born in Chicago Its story is charm
ing the girls were gorgeously arrayed in
a series of costumes that would shamo
anything but a rainbow and all in all
the grand old word gorgeous is none
too good to use in referring to it
A Girl at the Helm will be seen at
the Temple theatre McCook Oct 19th
