manager announced that ho had been
unable to socuro tho necessary num
ber of financial backers to securo n
Chautauqu for 1918. So far as the
business men aro concerned they are
practically unanimous in tho opinion
that tho Rcdpath-IIornor Co. has es
tablished a reputation in North Platto
for furnishing excellent talent, and
that on this reputation made they aro
practically nssu'red patronago In the
futuro sufficient to Justify thorn com
ing without a committee guaranteeing
a certain sum which sum is always
moro than sufficient to cover actual
oxponsos, and whatever Is taken In at
tho gato on slnglo admissions repre
sents tho net lncomo to tho company.
If, therefore, wo aro to havo a Chau
taiDqua In 1918 tho Rcdpath-Horner
company must como without bolng
guaranteed In, isiidyanco the salo of
$1400 in season tickets.
This year tho salo of season tickets
fell about $130 short of tho sum guar
antied and this deficit was modo up by
tho fifty-one who stood as financial
backers sonfb of whom took and paid
for moro tickets than they used.
Tho Tribuno has never favored bo

Tho Lutherans state the object of
their celebration In theso words: "We
celobrate tho Reformation of tho Six

Transformation of tho Twentieth." It
Is not to antagonizo or tear down any
othor faith or belittle any other, de
nomination, but to como to a better
knowledge of thoir own for greater
efficiency In tho great work of caring
for their own and doing their part in
tho great world evangelization In this
contury. It Is an opportunity to bear
testimony before the world to a faith
and practice which God has chosen
to make tho faith of many nations,
and which onrolls as her members
more than one-hal of the entire prot

opportunity to lead our pooplo into
a larger understanding of this glori

A Sermon On Lumber,
In conclusion my friends, we can't get away from
this lumber question. Why, every one of us
spent our first days in a cradle made of lumber.
Our lives have been lived between walls of two
by fours and lath, with rafters over our heads,
and matched flooring beneath our feet. We have
been sitting in wooden chairs, eating from wooden
tables, riding in wooden wagons, and in the course
of time will be laid to rest in wooden caskets.
Lumber is King in tho Construction World.
