bring joy to a loved one. We are showing many new and

insurance on the life of Mrs. Lafayette
O'Neal, formerly of thes place and n

Mrs. O'Neal died some two months

consumed in making the proof of death
the payment would have been made
sooner. The Knights and Ladies of

Money for Work
IT IS A PRETTY
McMacken A Sons Up Against
the Real Thing.
This morning a number of the teams
of the ice haulers who have been doing
the ice harvesting at the river in front
of the Burlington station, stopped
work in an endeavor to force the rc-
iiest for an additional nickle jht
oad for the ice that is being hauled
from the river.
The price which has been paid no
far is JW cents per load, and those
who have been doing the work thought
they should have 40 cents and ho made
cinand of McMacken ions, which
was refused. Thereupon they stopped
to the number of about ten, leaving
some five or six teams still hauling.
What the outcome of the trouble
will be we do not know at this time.
A number of people are hauling ice
for themselves and for neighbors who
are storing ice for private purposes.
We hpope that the disagreement may
be amicably adjusted in the near fu
ture, ami that the harvesting of the
crystal coolness may continue.
The i e which is being obtained at
the present is of a very fine quality,
and of good thickness.

Makes a Fine Display.
The windows at the Herold Sta
tionery Store are a wonder for the
amount of goods which they contain,
and the attractiveness with which
the goods are displayed. The suggestion-of
the windows is "come, in
and see something better." When
the invitation is accepted one is not
disappointed, for the display on the
inside is even greater than on the out-
side. Go around and take a look at
the nice and useful things which his
stock suggests for Christinas presents.
