Our Confidence Justified.
If the name Eastman had not been behind them, we would
have been afraid that there was something beside the price that
was cheap, when the Brownie Cameras first came out. But they
were made by Kodak workmen in the Kodak factories. That
was enough to satisfy us, and the results have more than justi
fied our confidence.
We don't nnderstand how the Kodak people do it at the

The city council is taking some
definite steps in the direc tion of per
manent street improvements for Hepp
ner, and for this they are to be com
mended. Each member fnllv realizes
that to pnt out Main street, alone, in
shape that it should be from the de
not to the power honse is a job that
will call for considerable on Hay of
cash, yet ft will be one of the best
t lings that can possibly be done to ad
vertise our little citv. . Time was
when Herpner was a beautiful little
home city and it can be restored to its
former beauty aud attractiveness.
The council has this end in view.
Why sonld we not have people making
permanent bonus here and putting up
beautiful residences more than is be
ing done at present? Why should all
these people who come to this county
and make money out of the resources
here pull up at the end of a few
years and go some where else to spend
their money in building nn and beau
tifying other citiea? There is no
good reason for it perhaps, except the
lack of proper public spirit and civic
pride of onr citizens. No move helps
more to hold people to a town than
the permanent improvement of its
streets and highways and we hope to
s e this work pushed along and definite
action taken before many months.
There is enough rock in the bluff in
the middle of upper Main street to
macadamize every s'reet in town and
the opportuuity is before us to make
the work serve a double purpose so far
as this street is concerned. This pa
per is in favor of the matter being pot
to a vote of the people at an early
date upon an initiative measure, au
thorizing the bonding of the cty in a
sufficient sum to at least pave Main
street, and to do even more than this
if npon investieation it can be ascer
tained that other streets can be Mm
proved without too heavy cash outlay
in the beginning.
non ing to' notice of thia office indicate
large percentages of increase. Shear
ing iu many localities is beginning,
and the wool clin is fplendid flue
stat le and very lean. With the fre
quent showers of rain and the promise
of seasonable weather dii'iug May
and June, our farmers cannot fail hav
ing an abundant crop, so prosperity
seems to be coming our way. So
mote it be.

As the time draws near for the pri
mary we find the sentiment in this
county growiug fast in favor of dodge
Ellis for Congress. In fact many are
expressing their regrets tl.at he was
turned down two vears aoo being fully
able to realize at this time that a
serious mistake was made in turnine
itit a man of esperienoe and useful
ness for one of profuse promises, who
in reality did little but bring blushes
of shame to the cheek of the people of
the entire state. Judge Ellis ia a
safe man has had abundant exoer
ience. and can soon take place at the
head of important committees again.
furthermore an investigation of hi-
recoid ju Congress will show that he
did much for the district he represent
ed, and was not a "etaud-stiller," or
"do-nothing" member bv any means.
Judge Ellis is now making a vigorous
campaign and if he gets the treatment
he deserves he will be nominated aud
elected by large majorities.
