In this aeaaoii ol'gruduatihg exercises none have been more inter-estinpr than those on the evening of May 31, in district, No. 8, Eopse-velt township, Grace Alberts, of No. 1 Lincoln, Harold Shimon, of No. 3, Martha Gunderaon, Joseph Sernett and Veronica Sinek, of No. 7 and Harry Eral and John Hronek of No. 8, Roosevelt township were the central figures in the evenings entertainment. Neatly engraved program's had been sent to relatives and friends. The achool room had been freshly papered. In front above the ph)t-form was thé class motto, "Climbing Higher," from a pendant bell the claea colors, pink and white, streched to tlie corners of tlie room giving it a festive air. The exercises were presided over by Miss Nellie McLaughlin, who in her two years services, has won the love and coniidence of pupils and patrona. The school work has been thorougli and the gala days have brought school and community in closer relationship.  The other teachers, equally capable and esteemed, were present to assist. Mias Bessie Trenary presided at the organ and took charge of the music. The different numbers by the cloas were suited to their age and capability. Miss Alberts sang a commencement apng. The claea presented dialogue bringing out important featurea of National hiatory and calling to their aaaistnnce younger pupila to impersonate characters. Even the wee onea were tlieir in white and bunting, marching, aing-ing and waving the atara and atripea, to add to the beauty and gaiety of the night The graduatea closed with a class song and Mr. Jensen in a few well chosen worda presented the diplomas. He then entertained the audienci with an illuatrated lecture showing forth the beauty and riches of Pocahontas county and pointing out means of making the county achool more comfortable and beautiful.  All waa well planned and well executed. Aa the claas of seven stood before ua their appearance and manner ahowed that theadvan-tages of modern times were coming to the country children where they can live on fresh eggs and sweet milk and where they have broad acrea for a play ground with out a aign "Keep o£f~ the Graea" what promises better for the future than the blending of Luxury and Labor, Confidence and Good Sense. "  Bootlegging Will Be Lessened  Bootlegging will not be the business it once was if the new law worka out aa anticipated says thé Odebolt Chronicle. The Beebe law goes into elfect July 1st and it is this law -vyhich ia expected to help eleminate the practice of dealing in liquor illicitly. The bill providea that one; in three months it shall be the duty of the county attorney to secure from the office of the revenue collector the names of all persons living in the county where he holds office, who have paid a government liquor tax. If it appearsi that any one has secured a receipt for. a government liquor tax who, is not licensed by the county to sell liquors then this fact shall bepriina facie evidence that such a man ia guilty of selling contrary to law and the county attorney will proceed against him. Should he fail to do so he will be liable to removal from office under the provisions of the CosBon act About the only way to beat the new law ia to fail to take out a government licenae, but this Is risky business and many who do not want trouble with your Uncle Samuel will hesitate about it a long time.  Shoshone Land Opening.  On the 23rd of this month the government will open to homestead entry a choice tract of land in the famous Big Horn Basin of Wyom ing under what ia known as the Shoshone irrigation project Two units of the project hove already been settled and water ia now ready for delivery to the lands of the third unit This section of the project which includes some of the moat desirable land in the entire district lies near the town of Ralston, and none of the farms are more than a mile from the railroad.  Several hundred families h&vfr made their homes on this project and those who are Buccessfnl in ae^ curing a farm in this new area will have all the advantagea found in other progreBBive and well-eettled regions, including schools, churches, growing towns with stores, banks, etc., good markets, and railway facilities..  On this project the reclamation service has built the highest dam in the world. It completely blocks the course of the Shoshone River, and the reservoir thus created provides an ample water supply for all of the lands. Full information about thiB project may be obtained bv writiog to the U, S. Reclamation Service, 802 Federal Bldg., ChicaRi^ Illinoië,  orwegians to Celebrate Centéqnial.  The Norwegian people of the United States are planning on returning in large numbers to their beloved native land in 1914 to observe exultingly and patriotiCaHy with the countrymen at home the centennial anniveraary of the adoption of the constitution of their country. They are organizing aystematically and actively in every state in the union and will make an earnest effort to raise $1,000,000 to bring back with them to Norway. Of this amount it ia proposed to gi^e $50,000. towards the reatoration o£ the old cathedral at Throdhjem, which viraa built in the eleventh ntnry^. It ia said to be one of the oldest and one of the most noted Christian churches in . northern Europe. All of Norway's kings have been crowned in it Beneath it can be found the tomb of St Olaf who did 80 much to Christianize the country within a few years about the close of the tenth century. Though he fell a short time later in a fierce atruggle'againat the Swedes and Danes, he has since been the favorite hero in Norse history.  The Norwegians of the United States have during the past fifty years, become decidedly prosperous. They are frugal and industrious and hundreds of thousands of them are wealthy. They are to be commended for the material progress they have made, for intellectual achievements and for their undying love for their native country, their language, their literature, their music, and their various inatitutiona which have given their country prominence throughout Europe. They will, no doubt, respond willingly and promptly to the present appeal to their generosity and makel914 truly memorable in the history of that land which is so intimately associated with their lofty purposes and their patrotic aapirationa.— Emmetsburg Democrat  Merchant Gives Reasons.  A prominent biiainess. man of Michigan explains why he adver-tiacs and why he uaes newspapers for that as follows: "I advertise in the newspapers because I am not ashamed of my goods or my work, and to let people know about myself, my atore and my atock; be cause I cater to the intelligent class and they read the papera and believe in increasing my business. I can talk to more people through the newspapers at a greater distance in leaa time and at a more reasonable price than in any other way; becauae newapaper advertising has brought me greater re turns for the least expenditure of any advertising I have done; because when I write an ad I am not too stingy to pay for placing it in the beat poaaible medium orto have it inserted so it is attractive because I know an ad is seen and read by everyone in the house where the paper goes."  About Sunday Base Ball.  Rolfe Arrow: Sunday base ball ia increasing at an alarming rate. Practically every town around us indulges in it WondCr why? "Goody" people will say it's because of the ain of the people, while the man who handles the re ceipts at the gate to the Rolfe park when a week day game draws $3, is more apt to say it's because Sun day base ball has to be played to meet expenses. This ia a sort of practical world. Boys will play ball. The American hoy has passion for it If he can't play week days he'll play it Sundays not chained down. We often wonder if church people who never attend a week-day ball game, and by their refraining to do so make the game unprofitable, ever feel responsibility for Sunday ball? The other fellow is catered to. We ought to encourage our young man in clean sports at the proper time and wouldn't have to cater to the fellow who demands tricky apart and Sunday games. Think it over.  be  The Rockwell City fair will held the last four days in July.  Sol Cundy, the good natured lightning rod man, of Laurena, waa in town a ahort time laat Thursday.  Mrs. F. B. Pettingill and children of Adrian, Minn., visited several days last week at the W. S. Clark home.  Laurens is the first town in the county to oil ita streets. Other towna will watch the result of this experiment  Mrs. Frank Reyburn and children went to DeWitt, last week, for a couple of week's visit witli her mother and sisters.  The game of base ball, here, on Sunday, between the Clare aluggera and Pocahontaa, resulted in a 7 to 2 score in favor of the home team.  The~Gowrie baae ball team haa been secured for the Fourth of July game. This team ia a good one and will make our boya go aome to win.

Woods in his previous candidacies for congreasman, conveys the information that Mr. Woods will positively be in the race for a nomination for a third term so Bays the Jewell Record. Mr. Woods in his letter stated that he was not yet ready to announce his cándidacy,' but in view of the fact that "it has been repeatedly rumored that he would not be a candidate, he had decided to write a few of his friends to assure them that he vrould run once more.  There should "be no "faction" in any city. The property of one individual and every improvement made enhances the value of all property in the corporation.
