Redeem Your Past Fnllnre * .
You may say that you Lave failed too
often , that there is no use in trying ,
that it is impossible for you to suc
ceed and that you have fallen too of
ten even to attempt to get on your feet
ngain. Nonsense ! There is no failure
for a man vrhose spirit is unconquered.
No' matter how late the hour or ho\v
many and repeated his failures suc
cess is still possible. The evolution
of Scrooge , the miser , in the closing
years of his life , from a hard , narrow ,
heartless money grubber , whose soul
was Imprisoned in his shining heap
of hoarded gold , to a generous , genial
" lover of his kind , Is no mere myth
" of Dickens' brain. Time and again , in
the history of our daily lives , chron
icled in our newspapers , recorded in
biographies or exhibited before our
eyes , we see men and women redeem
ing past failures , rising up out of the
stupor of discouragement and boldly
turning face forward once more. O.

N. J. Uck , of Omaha , " a partner
of Frank Krampert of Woodlake , is
in town this week on business. We
acknowledge a pleasant visit.
Rev. J. W. Morgan preached in
the Presbyterian clmrcli for the
past two Sundays. His sermons
were well written and exceedingly
well delivered. The Presbyterians
can do no better than to ask him to
come to Valentine.
The U. S. Weather bureau re
port for the week ending July 12 ,
shows extremes of temperature to
have been 93 ° on the 12bh , and
46 ° on the 9th , giving a range of
4:7 ° . The average daily mean
was 66 ° and the normal 75 ° ,
showing a daily loss in tempera
ture of 9 ° . The precipitation for
the week was only .03 of an inch
and the normal .61 of an inch ,
showing a loss of .58. The pre
cipitation since the 1st of July is
2.05 inches and the total for the
year to date is 20.82 inches. The
winds have been slightly below
the average , and the greatest ve
locity was 22 miles from NE on
the Sth. All crops have been bene-
fitted during the past week.
The weekly crop bulletin for the
state of Nebraska shows the past
WCCK has been cold with about the
normal rainfall. The mean daily
temperature has averaged 9 ° be
low the normal. Light showers
occurred nearly every day of the
week , but. the total rainfall was
not large. The amount exceeded
1 inch in several counties but in
the greater portion of the state was
slightly less than an inch. The
winter wheat harvest , although re
tarded some by showers , has on
the whole progressed nicely. A
little thrashing has been done in
southeastern counties , the yield
being good and the quality excel
lent. Spring wheat has improved
somewhat in condition. Early
oats are ripening and the harvest
has begun in southeastern counties.
The heads are well filled , but the
stand thin and the straw short.
Late oats promises a better crop.
Considerable hay was damaged by
rain. The wild or prairie hay
crops will be heavy , especially in
northern and eastern counties.
Corn has grown fairly well and is
healthy and in good conditon but
needs higher temperature. Culti
vation has been retarded by rain
and a large part of the crop has
not been laid by. The second
crop of alfalfa is about ready to cut.
Catholic Chnreli Announce
On Sunday next , mass will be
said here at 10:30 : a. m. After
Sunday , no Catholic services will
be held here again before the first
Sunday in August.
There will be a meeting of the
members of the Old Settlers Re
union held at Sparks , Saturday ,
July 15 , for the purpose of mak
ing arrangements for the Old Set
tlers Re-union to be held on the
last Friday and Saturday in Aug
ust. One and all are requested to
be present. FRANK GROOMS ,
Surely young men and worn en
can not now say they have no
chance , as the Grand Island Busi
ness & Normal College of Grand
Island , Neb. , has just announed
that 250 young men and 250 young
women of good character from the
farms and villages will be admit
ted at the college and allowed to
graduate without the payment of
one cent. They will then be plac
ed in positions in banks and busi
ness houses and allowed to pay
the college monthly out of their
wages. This school is a leader
among Business Colleges and any
one interested should write for the
The Retort Aminble.
