J iniRht Hay that we Americans are

.spirit, no doubt, that moved two in

I Last Saturday while working for

for a short time, and really doesn't
remember how It happened, but no on

He fels pretty good but is quite
badly bruised.

It wasn't that thpse people did not
feel that this mother thuuM have help,
ind that they as individuals owed her
atnd her childern a certain amount of
service, but thee folks said they had
paid taxes and the tale thereby be
came their servant, or provy, to do
what waj necessary for these children.
I often question whether from
moral standpoint we have a right to
delegate to another person, or institu
tion, the responsibility we owe suffer
ing humanity. Of course, there will be
thoM. who will say, "But what of our
hospitals and other benevolent institu
tions! Were it not for collective ef
fort these could not exist." To a cer
tain extent this is true, but this is
dodging the question under discussion.
We are speaking of the daily simple
duties we owe one another in our daily
We insist that the curse of the acre
is the increasing tendency to do avay
with real, personal service to one un
other. Consequently, we ae a.-, a rae
robbed of the sweetest ble.ssing of life
the cominir into contact with
needy in our effort to help them.
There are Itxlire members who mp-
rt the lodye with their money, but
when it comes to attending the meet
ings or business of the lodge they are
not there. They hie perfectly willing
to let the others do it. In the
churches we have many who are will
ing to pay other folks to do their work,
but when it comes to contributing
)crsvnal service they are not theie.
The world is hungering for the per
sonal touch. The tnjn in need will ap
preciate the personal touch much bet
ter than money. Try it out on the
reedy family in your neighborhood;
that sick neighbor; that discouraged
friend; that down-hearted ami tiisap-j-ointed
acquaintance who has suffered
a reverse of some sort. Cio to them,
with a personal word of cheer, and you
will find that a personal visit will do
them much more good than a dkzen
bouquets of flowers.
"Say It With Flowers" is a common
saying, and I feel that too many of us
sre doina; that very thing. The world
wants personal attention, and will
appreciate it. You may call up your
neighbors over the phone and invite
them to church, or send them a written
invitation, but the thing that will like
ly bring them thre is a personal visit
and personal imitation.
To Live Again the
Old Pioneer Days at
Platte River Roundup
On Augu-t 22, 23 and 21 will Ix?
staged one of the most spectacular re
productions of pioneer life of fifty
years ago. This event will take place
in the open country on the old range
and Indian country north of Suther
land where nature provided a natural
show ground and where the earmarks
of the old range days still exist.
A few of the eld cow boys, Nate Tre
go, John Schick, hl .Mcl-Iothlin, tAl
Coates. Tug Wilson, Jack Veach, Will
Coker, Frank Coker, Jack Palmer. Bert
Snyder, John Harsfield, Chas. Chess
more, Lee Cae, James Cuffey, Fred
Pierson and others will take part and
stand back of the enterprise. This is
a guarantee that the Fioneer Days
Exhibition will be a place for you to
enjoy three days of sports anil have
an outing in the open country free
from du."t and where the best water
in the country is found.
Chiefs Two Sticks, Running Dog and
Two Thunder are expected. There
will also be a Ikjvv of Western Cow
Girls who will do their part to make
the three davs exhibition a success.
The first "lay will consist of sports
peculiar to the west in those days
such as riding bad horses and Pteers,
roping and branding, wild horse races,
and a ball game between the cowboys
and a city team.
The second day will see a real re
production of the old roundup, the
trail herd of a thousand cattle, the
horse cavy, the bed wagon, cow camp,
branding of calves, etc.
The program of the la.t day will
show an envgrant train which will
be attacked by Indians who wiil cap
ture and massacre the men and chil
dren and hold the women captives.
They will pillage and burn the wagons
ami attempt to escape with the women
and horses. Rangers and Foldiers
save the women and put the Indians
to rout.
The second and third nights will
how the Siouv Sun Dance, the Indian
War Council and War Dance.
A goo l orche-tra will he secured
and a Lmce will be given each night in
one of the largest dance halls in west
ern Nebraska.
It is reported that a car'oad of wild
ponies will if brought nere trom tne
plains of Idaho.
An effort is s.No being made to have
Cuney, The C;ow, who was an Indian
scout for the government and the only
one to est-are at the time of the Custer
massacre, to be present during the
three davs entertainment.
We are fast doing away with the
personal element of religion. We like
to perform our religious duties as
lodge members do, through proxy, in
the shape of committees; but it cannot
be done. God expects you to use your
personality for the building up of his
kingdom, and you cannot by your
money be the sum ever so great
fulfill these responsibilities to your
Ood or neighbor. The greatest need
.of the church is not more money; but
more consecration of self. In fact, un
less you consecrate yourself along
with your substance you consecrate
noth'ng. The personal touch is infi
nite y more powerful tlun the imper
sonal. (Continued NVt Week)

"What does the Lord's Day mean to
you?" This is the question that will
be answered at the morning hour of
worship. We shall endeavor to give a
sensible answer and shall follow the
Scriptures in presenting the claims for

services will be held in the Baptist
church. The sermon will be preached
from the subject, "The Jerusalem
Church". The record of this church is
taken mostly from the Book and Acts.

State Tax Levy Wiil

50 Per Cent This Year
The state levy of 3.0.1 mills to raise
approximately $10,000,000 of tax rev
enue needed to run the state govern
ment from Auditor Mar-h as to the
Nebraska for the next fiscal year is
the rate which Tax Commissioner
Osborne e tiniates will te required.
The state board of equalization
and assessment will meet either the
la-t of this week or the first of next,
to fix the amount of the levy. It
will have before it an official state
ment from Alitor Marsh as to the
appropriations made by the legislature
and the proportion thereof which must
be raised by taxation.
As the twirl will. have, bv that
time, complete assessment returns of
the state totawed and tabulated, it
will be a sirp!e matter to compute
the tax levy necessary to produce
one-half of the b'ennial revenue. The
rate may be slightly lower or higher
than 3.0.1 mill, but it will he in that

None So Blind as Those
Who Will Not See!
) ) ) )
Some people boast that they "never read the adver
tisements." Such people merely boast that they are blind to
their own interests.
People who closely follow the advertisements in The
Herald are always getting the best bargains and saving
the most money.
The merchant who advertises is not only proud of
what he has to sell you, but he is inviting you to seize op
portunities to benefit yourself. The non-advertiser
neither issues you an invitation to visit his store, nor ex
hibits any pride in the bargains he may have.
Do you ever go where you are not invited? The advertisers in this
newspaper are inviting you to visit them. They are also proving that they
have confidence in their goods and prices. Further than that, they are
backing up the efforts of the biggest factor in any town's prosperity the
newspaper that is always heralding forth to the country the advantages
of it's town and territory.
If you don't read the advertisements, that is your misfortune. Don't
boast of it, for that is boasting of your ignorance.
People who study the newspaper advertising
columns are the people who save money.
Some merchants say: "We don't need to advertise; everybody knows
us." Fcrty years ago "St. Jacob's Oil" was r.s well known as "Kodak" is
t'vlav. "Everyl)ody knows ut us." said the manufacturers, and ceased
advertbing. today "St. JaccL's Oil" is as dt.i as J. CV.ciar!
