"The Eagle As An Emblem," was
the subject of a beautiful and instruct

of Grace Episcopal church. Father
Xanders described the fearless habits
of the bird and showed the beautiful
symbolism of the eagle as an emblem,
in Scripture, and in national affairs as
well as in this great fraternal order.
Harry B. Fleharty. of South Omaha,
was right at home in his treatment of
his subject. "Our Guardian Angels

in a humorous vein for several min

amy of his fias ever suggested that
he was not loyal to his friends. Hence,
it was perfectly appropriate that he
should be assigned the subject of
"Loyalty." He handled the subject
in his own characteristic style, show
ing the beauties of having friends that

could be depended upon at all times
and Dahlman's friends know that he
possesses that attribute to a remark
During the week entertainment was
furnished for the crowds by the Nat

most exciting features of this part of
the program was the choice of a car

choice finally fell upon Miss ilaggie

The forty-fourth annual convention
of the Nebraska state Sunday school
association was held in the auditorium
at Grand Island June 6 to S. While '
the number enrolled was not as large
as usual, and the weather was of the
scorching variety, yet every session
was full of inspiration and help to

Problems which trouble county offi
cers were discussed Tuesday morn
ing, followed by a noon-day prayer ser
vice. Tuesday afternoon was taken
by the elementary institute, which
opened with a chorus of 120 or more
children, representing seven different
Sunday schools of Grand Island, each j
school singing a song. Mrs. Ida M.
Leyda. of Chicago, then gave an ad-1
dress on "The Child." which was fol
lowed by talks on each department

the convention, but m his address on
"The Centuries of The Bible" he
brought home many wholesome truths
as well as in his subsequent talks.
Mr R. A Waite. international sec
retary of the Y M. C. A- gave sev

Thursday afternoon. Dr. H H

They were on their way to attend the

Michael Spellicy, for nearir thirty
years a resident of the Platte Center
neighborhood, died very suddenly last
Thursday noon, from heart trouble
He had prepared for his dinner, and
was awaiting the call to the table.
We are offering through the efforts of
Chas. I. Zirkle & Co., of Garden City, Kansas,
one of the best propositions now on the mar
ket, viz: over 100,000 acres of fine, level
land, well watered by springs and creeks and
all underlaid by an inexhaustible supply of
the very best and purest of soft water, at a
depth of from 6 to 80 feet; good, deep, rich
soil and at the extremely low price of from
$12.50 to $35.00 per acre.
In this section of Kansas the rain fall is
sufficient to mature any crop adopted to this
climate viz: Wheat, corn, oats, barley, kaffir
corn, milo maise, rye, millet, sweet potatoes,
irish potatoes and Garden Truck of all kinds.
And besides there is on this tract of land
more than 20,066 acres of the very finest of
shallow water sub-irrigated land, ALFALFA
LAND, than which none other better can be
found in the WORLD.
The developement of Kansas has demonstrated
that every county developed in the line of march to
the West, has proven to be better than the territory
previously under cultivation in fact, one of the last
counties cf the fully developed Pawnee less than
50 miles East of the land we are offering for sale,
was FIRST in wheat production last year, and Ford
County, which adjoins this land, an only meagerly
developed, occupied FIFTH place.
As developement extends westward, land values
climb UP and UP and Finney county is just now on
the verge of a great BOOM, yet people are not
aware of its magnificent possibilities; they will be very
soon, therefore now is the time to act.
Come and permit us to show you the acf tjal facts,
regarding this great state, and especially Finn? y County,
