SHENANDOAH COMES ON
FAST AFTER ATHLETICS
Ths Athletics of Omaha, one of the fast
est amateur foot ball teams of the city,
were defeated by Shenandoah In the hard
eat game witnessed on the Iowan's field
this season by the score of 10 to 0. Greatly
outweighed,- the Athletics made a fine
showing against their heavier opponents,
playing In the, lowans territory a num
ber of times.
For Shenandoah, Castle was the stellar
performer, tearing through the Athletics'
defense for large gains. Castte Is known
by a large numbor of Omahans by his
backstop work, being one of the regu
lars on the "Wichita Western league team.
A. number of . the Shenandoah players,
were stars on former university teams,
among whom Is Blackburn, formerly on
the Am ca team.
A touchdown made by the lowans in
tho last quarter was not allowed because
of offside plays on both Bides.
The injury of Rossltcr, quarter for the
Athletics, In the latter part of the sec
ond quarter, caused the Omahans to slow
up in their team work, as they had no
other quarter to take his place. Shen
andoah made alt their points after Rossi
ter left the game.
The Athtetlo team plans a number of
post season games with other class A
teams In the city, planning to get the
city championship In the end.

SALUTING PASSING INDIAN
Eulogistic Bathos (or a Race Whose
Tomorrows Are Numbered.
Pushed beyond every frontier, his home
and his hunting grounds lost to him,
shut away from his buffalo and antelope,
tho old Indian stands at the end of his
journey. The generation which Is at the
fore Is doing something, not much, with
Its opportunities. When the old Indian
passes to the spirit land tho young men
of the plains will receive their heritage
of land and bounty; but from all present
Indications they will do little with It,
and a few short years will suffice to see
the heritage dissipated and, the land pur
chased and hjillt upon, cultivated and re
deemed by the white man.
The Indian's remaining tomorrows are
few, and they will soon be lost In the
generations yet unborn. The picture Is
full of pathos. It Is like the dead march
In "Baul." It Is a long, long chapter
from the cordial welcome of the red man
when Columbus landed to the fated end
of the red man more than 409 years later,
hut tho end Is almost here. And now our
only hope. If we wish to keep the Indian,
Is to carve a statue of him In stone or
mold his figure In bronze.
The stupendous possibilities of the In
dian, the marvelous resources of the red
man, the glittering possibilities of the
race, the unconquerable virility of this
type of color are all shown by the fact
that civilization In Its onward march, In
vention with Its mighty pulse beats, the
throbbing 11 fo of progress, all combined,
have not yet been able to snuff out these
first and real Americans; but the day
will soon dawn when the last real North
American Indian will be folded In his
blanket and laid amid the sighing
branches of the pines upon some lonely
and desolate hlllcrcst, whose only dirge
will be the liquid notes of the meadow
lark. New Haven Register.

CREDIT IS USELESS IF THE
MERCHANDISE IS TRASHY
The bare fact that we give credit cheerful credit to anyone who
wants clothing would be no argument at all if the clothing were
shoddy or trashy.
So we wish to make it clear to those wh o never traded 'with us that tho credit wo
offer is credit on good, substantial, well made, high grade, reliable clothing. If you
aro looking for trash, the showy stuff that decoives all but tho oxpert oyc for a time and
then falls to pieces, don't waste any of your timo here. But if you aro looking for
GOOD clothing at tho lowest market price (for GOOD clothing), don't wasto timo and
money by going elsewhere.
There are ho ifs, no ands, no butn to our credit.
There are no lfs, no ands, no buta to our clothing. .
Both will stand tho grim searchlight of keenest criticism and not be found lacking.
