Every individual Has His or Her Du ty to Perform. A town is very much like an indiv idual. To be flourishing, it must have energy and enterprise. The people in a town should remember that the in dividual prosperity depends to a large extent upon the character of the plac. in which their business is located. Every pubic mleasure should be lib erally supported by all, especially the business men. At the present day there is as much competition between towns as there is among persons and business enterprises. A man seeking a location will invariably select a town that is up to the times, and is eagerly in favor of every modern improvement. A town in these mod ern times can't afford to be peopled with old fogies or antediluvian fos sils who are continually kicking at every enterprise. To make a flour ishing town you must, believe In its future and work for it. encouraging every improvement. Make a special effort to exhibit some evidence of improvement in your own work and character. Help every worthy man. help every worthy enterprise, and encourage every good man to locate in your town. Get Into the Harness. Every town has its advantages and should make the most of them. Every town is fitted for some one enter prise more than another, and as soon as it is ascertained what would be most conducive to the growth and prosperity of the place the citizens should take hold of the matter and push it for all it’s worth. The news paper with the helj) of the wide awake men make a wide difference in a town. Every man who succeeds in a town is a help to it. The more money he makes if he spends it, the better for the community. The larger business he builds up, the more j attention is called to the town. A ! man cannot build tip an honorable I business in a town without helping, it. A town can’t build up without help-] ing the country. The interest of one | is the interest of all. Let Us Alone, Man.

While our girls clearly out classed the Sabetha team, they were required to observe rules not in force in the athletic association in this dis trict. Nevertheless, they were equal to the occasion and brought home more scalps to add to their already long list of victims.

He works for railroads, churches, good streets, and a hundred and one other things for the general good; he urges, pleads, scolds, badgers and cavorts around generally until he gets what lie sets out for. Imagine his feelings, then, when some lame,string-halted kind of a fellow reproaches him lie cause he don’t boom things enough, and niife times out of ten that same fellow has never paid one cent to ward supporting the paper, and the paper he reads with marked regular ity is either borrowed from his neigh bor or picked up from the counter in the store’ at which he trades.

BEWAILS THEIR DOWNFALL AUBURNITE HAS UNNECESSARY SORE SPOTS _ All Over a Game of Basket Ball Claims of Unfairness Not Substantiated By Facts "It's hard enough to he pitted against mu entire town, but when. In addition, the referee and um pire are against a team, it may as well forfeit tin; game to start with iiotl save the trouble of going through the lurce of playing. And that's exactly what happened to the Auburn basket ball team when they went up against Falls City Inst. Saturday. “The fact t low certain of the business men of this city hud gum untoed small individual amounts for the* use of the A. H, S. athletic as sociallou to fill! back on If it ran out of funds before the year was over, was misconstrued by our pug tiaclotiH southern neighbor to mean thill our boys were to be paid for beating them. From that moment the result of tile game was as cer tain as the good old fact that water runs down hill. "Through met hods best known to themselves, an umpire ami referee were secured from Humboldt, one having been u member of the Hum boldt team which met defeat at Auburn's hands some time ago.and the other his brother. The ganc was played in a building with a gallery, the lights being placed un dernoath, while the goal posts ex tended above. This would be fair enough, bad not Falls City practic ed with this peculiar layout in order to become adept in coudl Hons which do not exist in any other indoor field In the state. "In spite of tiie protests against, tlie decisions of the referee the game proceeded. Between the hal ves the referee received a talking to from Bupt. Doremus of this city on certain points of the game which had been constantly and flagrant ly violated. The referee’s idea of an athletic contest can be gleaned from a conversation which ensued after the game, when, in speaking to Mr. Doremus, lie said: " ‘Well, 1 gave yon the long end of it in the second half, anyway.’ ‘‘‘Why did you do that?’ inquir ed the superintendent " 'Oh. to kind of even up th -i deal.” "In athletics of the right sort a play or foul Is either made or not made, and if there is any ‘even ing-up” to be done it is the players themselves who have to do it. In outlaw organizations, of course, the referee is depended upon to win the game. It Is rather doubt ful if the other proposed games be tween Auburn and Falls City will be played. They certainly will not. be unless the latter town agrees to come somewhere within well-known athletic rules during a contest."— Auburn Herald Auburn Herald. Mow, the facts concerning the game are these: Auburn’s manager picked the referee and if be was against, them it was because he was too con scientious to overlook their poor play lug: the fact that Auburn's team was to be given $t>n if they defeated | Kails < uy was Owughl at-ic m «** | vance of the game by oue of Auburn's I former teachers; Falls City had not played a game in doors this season, while Auburn tins practiced that way several times. The following letter Irom the Au burn manager is proof positive that the referee ami umpire were not "fixed"—unless Auburn "fixed" them: "Auburn, Neb., Nov. 10, 1909.— lean Cain, Dear Sir—I will put out tin- bills and think I can get a little c rowd to come down. Let Hist (of liuinboldt)referee and get some one else to umpire.—Martin Souders." It is really foolish to give space to the clipping above—it’s so silly. The average reader will at once draw the conclusion that it was inspired by other than the real athletes them selves—possibly Mr. 1). The mem bers of Auburn’s basket, ball team bear tio malice toward our boys and are not a party to the feeling that, is so evident in the above article, as is evidenced bv a communication from one of the boys up there which, in part, says: "I hope you fellows are not'sore’ at we boy^ We want you to come up and give us a return game. We feel alright about it. * * * *” The reader can draw his own con clusion.
