Individual Responsibility Over
i vvu I
Situated in the midst of as good a
arming community as the the sun ever
shone upon, the city of Murdock is
peculiarly fortunately located for the
enjoyment of the nice business which
comes to it.
This week a representative of the
News-IIgrai.d drove from a near by
station overland, in a howling blizzard,
and on our arrival while we did not ex
pect to find things very lively in the
little city we were agreeably surprised
for we found many people there and do
ing business as well.
At First National Hank, we found
Mr. J. E. Go.hry the genial cashier and
bookkeeper hard at work and happy as
a lark with his work. Mr. H. II. Neit
zel having been called away some days
since by the sickness and death of his
mother in the east. Mr. Neitzel is ex
pected to return in a few days.
ftcr we had thawed the snow from
our whiskers, we strolled down the
street and found H. A. Cast the harness
maker busily at work at his place of
business and assisted by Henry Borne
meyer who was in charge of the oiling
We next dropped into the market of
Hnry Westake and found the gentle
man smiling and well satisfied with life
and its settings, after a few moments
chat with him we passed on to the bar
ber shop of August Keuhn, where we
had the weather beaten crop of alfalfa
which we had grown during the last
few days on the hill and valleys of our
countenance, removed. When it comes
to the practice of the tonsorial art, Mr.
Keuhn is an artist which is rarely sur
passed and seldom equalled. With M.
Keuhn, has been associated John Em
kirk, for some time a first-class work
man, but who is an artist in tht line of
painting and paperhanging, and who
has quit the barber business to resume
the occupation of house decorator. In
this business is also the firm of Worth
& Green. Mr. Correll Worth and Elmer
Green being members of the firm and j
both workman of the first quality.
At the Union State Hank we found :
Mr the cashier in charge j
and looking after business, and it seems j
that he had a plenty of it to look after j
as h crowd were waiting to have their !
wants attended to. While at thin place j
of business we met' Robert Crawford. ;
E. Craig and McDonald, the mail man, j
who became readers of the Nkws-Hkk j
ALU. At Louis Neitzels we found thej
proprietor busy, and reports that the
tpring business is beginning to show it-'
self, and things are looking in tine
shape for a good trade during the sea-!
At the business place of Langhorst & j
Huge we found then enjoying a good '
business. II. V. McDonald of the
Murdock Pharmacy was hustling around
caring for the business which is evident
in all the surroundings at his store.
Passing across the street to the store
of Albert Hunt, we found Mr. Hunt's
brother Wm. Hunt of Omaha, who has
charge of the business temporarily, dur
ing the sickness of little Martha the
four year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Albert Hunt, who has been confined to
her bed for some three weeks with
pneumonia, but who was reported as
some what improved Wednesday morn
ing, under the skillful care of Dr. I. D,
Jones. Dr. Jones, who has been in the
city for a number of years is kept pretty
busy with his large and lucrative prac
tice, and was compelled but a short
time since to take a rest and spent some
time in the mild climate of Mexico, re
turning much improved and is now at
his work again. Dr. Hoops who recent
ly came to Murdock, is gaining a good
practice and is well pleased with the
We found business brisk at the lum
ber office of E. T. Too! and passirg
from there to the elevator of the Lin
coln Grain Company where we found
John Kidgeway in ehi.rge of affairs and
of the opinion that the farmers would
receive much better prices for their
com. Here we met Frank Gu.stine a
fMiner I'lattsmouth boy who in now a
prosperous farmer living south of the
city, he was delivering some hogs for
At the elevator of Wright Leet &
Co we found George Ott in charge, on
account of the sickness of Mrs. W. F.
Waddell, wife of the manager of the
company's business in Murdock. Mr.
Waddell has just recovered from a spell
of sickness to be folllowed by a spell of
intermittent fever compelling Mrs.
Waddell to take her bed. It is hoped
she will soon be able to be up and
Mrs. Emma Davis the efficient Post
Mistress, looks after the office is a
most satisfactory manner, while Mr.
Davis is employed by the Rock-Island
company with Mr. C. Mooney, the sec
tion foreman. Our next stop was at
the place of Mr. O. J. Carr who owns a
restaurant, is manager of the Platts
mouth Telephone Company, and finds
time to do some harness work for A. J.
Tool who has his business the next door,
and who also carries a line of hardware
and implements. Mr. Tool says busi
ness in very fair and increasing, Mr.
Carr is doing nicely, and very a agree
able gentleman. We found Wm. Gehrts,
the implement dealer in a happy frame
of mind and well satisfied with this
world and its and why not when he has
a nice business and a host of friends
and satisfied customers.
We have passed the business place of
Martin & Tool, but the blinds being
drawn we thought they were preparing
for the sale which opened Wednesday,
and we were right, they were, we tr ied
to look in and were direcled by Mr II.
A. Tool, to the side door where we were
admitted. We found an army of clerks,
busily marking goods for the sale, and
glancing around we were more than
surprised to note the discounts which
were being made in the many lines car
ried by this enterprising firm. The sale
is being managed Martin & Tool, and is
under the direction of Mt. A. T. Schott
of St. Louis, a very successful sales
man, r.nd one who has a long line of
successful sales to his credit, and is
making a success of the talc which is
now on at this business place. Besidts

We stopped for the night at the Mur
dock House which is conducted by W.
O. Gillespie and wife who do a good
business, while Mr. Gillespie also ton
ducts a livery and dray business in con
nection. At the Rock-Island we found the

Mr. Kottmann, the jeweler has been
in the city for a long time and is doing
a good business and a very clever gentle
man besides the I'lattsmouth Telephone
