pleased with them.

Word from the bedside of Mrs. A.
M. Holmes is to the effect that she is

able to remain at work.
It is rumored in and around Murray
that our good friend D. L. Amick is
about to enter a new tield of labor.
Many of our people have wondered
just what Iave's future steps would
terminate in, but we understand that
he has fully made up his mind to cul
tivate his voice and "jin out'' with a
comic opera company. We could
hardly believe this to be true but some
of Dave's most intimate friends will
vouch for the truthfulness of this
Our excellent friend Alex Graves re
ports his summer's work almost finish
ed, and that he is about to enter upon
bis winter's vacation. He tells us
that he has worked pretty steady this
summer, and really does not believe
that lie has been upon the streets of
Murray over six hours since he came
to town. Now "what do you think of
this" we were of the opinion that Alex
and Fate Davis were endeavoring to
organize a "Son's of Rest" lodge in
Murray. Alex is now branded as a de
serter and the charter will never be
A Pleasant Evening.
Saturday evening the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Will Oliver was the scene of
a joyful affair the event being in hon
or of the birthday anniversary of their
daughter, Miss Elizabeth.
The evening was pleasantly spent in
various social amusements. Delicious
refreshments were served during the
evening. The guests departed at a
late hour wishing Elizabeth many
more such happy birthdays. The
guests present were Misses Gertie and
Lora Pitman, of Nehawka. Maude
McCullouch. May. Louise ai:d Hazel
Kline: Messrs. Warren Wiley. Ed Mc
Cu'louuh. Lloyd and Ed Louis, Paul
and Herman Richter. Joe Dull, Will

Among the Sick
Jesse Rennard, who was so seriously
injured some few days ago by falling
through the lloor of his hay mow, is
improving. Jess Hendricks is on the
road to mend, and T. J. Rhoden. who
has been suffering with sciatic rheu
matism, is improving, although he
has suffered a great deal the last week.
RoyShrader, who has been confined
to his home with remittant fever is
getting along nicely. Mrs. Thomas
Lindsay has been suffering with a
severe attack of neuralgia of the
stomach, and Uncle Jimmy Root has
been quite sick for the past few days.
Some pine Pigs
Our good triend L. ILOldhamclaims
to be the champion hog raiser of this
section. While in Murray yesterday
we went over to his place to see some
of his spring pigs. He has about fifty
head that were farrowed in April and
will now average nearly 200 pounds.
He expects to market them some time
the lore part of next month. Lee
says there is no secret to the success
ful end of his hog feeding. He simply
milks a number of cows, separates the
milk from the cream, and feeding the
former to the pigs. If you do not be

Dinner With the Bachelors
While in Murray 3esterday we were
invited to join two (for the present)
members of "our" bachelor clubin the
persons of our valued friends Messrs
Holmes .S: Smith, in partaking of the
noonday meal, Mrs. Holmes being
way down in Kansas and Mrs. Smith
spending the day in Omaha. Jim
rilled the position of "chief cook and
pan washer" to a 'King's choice, and
when dinner was prepared we were
thoroughly convinced that he will
have plenty of good things to till the

State Treasurer Believes That Publicity as
to Depositories Ought to be General.
State Treasurer Mortensen believes
that the publicity as to the depositor
ies of public funds ought not to be
confined to his oflice, but that it ought
to be extended to the county treasur
ers and all other custodians of public
funds. Mortensen, says the Lincoln
News, regards it as a safeguard for
himself and believes that the state
ment which he makes at the end of
each month provides the taxpaying
public with information which it
might legitimately demand. He has
pursued the policy ever since he was
elected to the otliee of treasurer and
with unfailing regularity issues the
.statements at the close of each month,
I giving the names of the depositories
' and the balance in each.
In very few instances, it is stated,
do county treasurers show w here they
keep the public funds, although in
some of the counties considerable sums
accumulate. A recent legislature en
acted a new depository law, Which
aims at the prevention of partiality,
since it requires that the money be
prorated as nearly as possible between
all of the banVs which qualify properly
to serve as depositories. Notwith
standing that fact it is urged that it
would be helpful to the public to have
this information at the end of each
month, in order that the taxpayers
may know what banks are using their
The statutes do not require the
state treasurer to make montldy state
ments as to the whereabouts of the
funds, although the depository law re
quires the banks to sign bonds pledg
ing themselves to the payment of in
terest and to make reports monthly.
The action of Mortensen in giving the
matter publicity is voluntary.
It will be remembered by many
readers of the Journal that last Ie
cember while out hunting rabbits with
his brother. Frank, the gun in the
hands of the latter accidentally went
oil and the entire load took effect in
the left knee of Charley Destor. Every
attention possible has been given the
wounded member, but he still remains
a cripple and is compelled to use
crutches. Six weeks ago he entered
Immanuel hospital at Omaha, for
treatment, and remained until Tues
day when lie returned home. It is
hard to discern any improvement yet,
but when allowed to remove the
casting it is hoped there will be.
Charley's general health is in excellent
condition, and this to some extent is
in his favor, and may tinally result in
the general use of the limb. At least
the Journal hopes so.

The many old I'lattsmouth friends
of Mrs. David Miller may be surprised
to learn that that lady has been com
pelled to undergo a second surgical
operation at the Lincoln hospital, the
first one having been performed
scarcely two months ago. Mrs. Miller
was convalescing niceiy from the shock
of the first when it was decided that
she must be operated upon for ap
pendicitis which was done last Satur
day, very successfully.

making the history of that section of

Although considered a valuable relic
it is practical to use and comfortable

seem to take in riding in it, which
they do every day in each city they
