self drafted the platform adopted

Nebraska to the renomination of
_ , President Roosevelt. I am as enthusiastically -
thusiastically in favor oi the re-
L I r ' , nomination of President ' Roose- .
welt as I was at the date that I

The republican party of the
state of Nebraska is a unit in . f av-
\4 or of the renomination of our
worthy and honorable president ,
t. r" . . and is heartilly in accord with

as impossible , if I may use an illustration -
' . lustration , to pluck the stars from

' ' . of Nebraska away from Theodore
h i deeply appreciate the part of
the resolution referring to my-
self by name. At t sane time ,
, I do ( not accept it entirely as a
i ' compliment to myself , but the
manifestation of a sentiment pre-
i- ' . vailing in the minds of the repub-
, ; licans of the state of Nebraska
_ . that they arc entitled to national
, recognitiot The last republican

i. tation on my part , voluntarily
- chose by resolution which it
I adopted , to endorse myself as thc
candidate of the republican party
" . of this state for the high office of
t vice president of the Unite l dt'ates.
The effort which is now g'cingonJ

It is the republican party which

Mineral Paint Discovered
In Vicinity of Falls City I
. - . . . - .
An extensive deposit of mineral -
al paint has been discovered within -
in a very short distance of : Falls
Ci ty.rrhe discoverer , who requested -
quested that his name be not
mentioned , told a t Tribunc man
of the iind and backed up his
statements with samples of both
the ore and of paints made there-
from. This man is one of our
well known citizens and is per-
fectly reliable. When seen by a
reporter he said :
"I have known of this deposit
of mineral : : paint for a long time ,
but had no idea of its value.
About ten years ago I was work-
ing on a house which was being
erected on a farm not very far
from town and noticed near a
'well on the premises , a pile of
peculiar clay like substance which
I took to be mineral paint , from
the amount of oil it contained.
I made inquiry of the owner of
the land and learned that the
substance had been taken out by-
a well augur ten years before.
The augur had passed through a
layer of the substance at least
eighty feet thick. I did not give
the matter much thought until I
was in Lincoln this winter and
learned from paint manufacturers -
ers the value of such a deposit.
I at once renewed my investigations -
tions with the most satisfactory
results. The ore from which
mineral pain is made exists very
near : Falls City in large quantities
and a very shod time will witness
the development of the lind. "
Here the gentleman picked up a
large piece of the dark brown
oily substance and continued ,
. Sphinx Club Wins Piano
The piano cotest which was
conducted by Burris Bros. , Dav-
ies & Owens and S. L. Davies ,
closed last Friday. For some
time the fight had been between
the Sphinx Club and Central
school , the other contestants having -
jug been left far behind. As the
contest neared a close , both sides
redoubled their efforts and many
votes were cast during the last
few hours that the ballot box remained -
mained open. The final count of
the ballots showed that the Sphinx
Club had polled 22,219 votes and
Central school had 18,181 votes
to their credit. The piano was
accordingly awarded to the

"This sample is from the original . ;
pile that , I noticed at the well anti
has lain exposed to the elements , I
freezing and thawing and heat ,
and rain for twenty years. It is i
still rich in oil and seems to have
lost none of its original quaJi-
The reporter was then shown a
can of paint which had been made
by imply grinding the ore
and mixing it with raw linseed -
oil. When applied to a hard pine
board the paint dried rapidly with
a gloss like varnish. The reporter -
er secured a sample of the ore ,
which can be seen at this ofiicc. i '
The ore from which mineral I ) .
pain is made is very rare and I
western paint manufacturers are
compelled to ship their supply
from . as far away as Vermont and i
New Jersey. This being true S
one can readily sec the value of a f
discovery of mineral paint in the ;
immediate vicinity of , : Falls City ;
It means the building up of an , , i ,
industry of no inconsiderable -il
magnitude , for it is evident that ,
a vein eighty feet thick would .
yield an immense quantity of the , _ s
ore , the mining and shipping of .
which would require the labor of I
many men. . The location of a
big paint factory in this city
would not he unlilely. Speci-
mens of the ore have been sent
to Lincoln to be tested and when
the report is made an exhaustive
investigation of the vein will be
made. The gentleman whQ.dis-
covered thc deposit assures us , '
that he will have something of 'I
importance for publication in the '
very near future. " I
The boys were naturally much !
elated over their victory and feel , j2
grateful to their friends for help 4
they go'ave. On Sunday afternoon ' .
the new instrument was thoroughly - _
ly tested at the club rooms. A ' "
number of young ladies were in- "I :
vited in to do the playing. pave
Sowles learned that the contest -r
was in progress and sent up a - big
box of fine candy , which proved ' .
to be just what was needed to r :
make } the concert a complete suc- "
