Kilpatricks Will Issue Rain Checks Tuesday
Isn't it funny how different people look at different things. For instance now the
weather everybody knows it has been considerably moist lately. One man attributed
the rain fall to the cannonading in Europe; another thoughtlt was due to the liberation
of certain gases. Still another who remembered the rainy month of May, when we had
tho Ministers'. Convention, thought it might be due to Billy Sunday.
"But what is the use of repining, where there's a will. there's a way; tomorrow the
sun MAY be shining, although it looks gloomy today."
We have lived In this grand old state nigh onto
thirty years and never yet have we known too much
moisture to fall In dear old Nebraska as a whole.
And so we won't repine, but for the first time in
our history will meet conditions with a sort of
