Did you notice those two strange
pups in Murray last week? Did you
see the two young ladies that were
compelled to come all the way to town
after them? They were not angry,
but perhaps the gentlemen were that
they followed, because they wanted to
return with them, and save the young
ladies the trip coming in.
While in Murray yesterday after
noon and in conversation with one of
the citizens of that little city, the
question of holiday and Christmas
gift goods came into the drift of the
conversation, and lie remarked, "What
do you think of Holmes & Smith's big
line for a small town?" Of course
one could not help but agree with him
that it was up-to-date in every partic
ular, and that a suitable present for
every member of the family could be
found right in Murray, and at a very
reasonable price: lie said in fact as
cheap as anywhere else for the same
quality of goods. If the goods are
riirht. the prices right, and the men
were certainly right to deal with, they
j shouid receive the business tributary
J to Murray.
The evangelistic meetings were
j transferred to the Christian church
on Monday evening, and are being
continued with good interest.
Mrs. W. J. Edmunds and her daugh
ter. Mrs. Nettie Long, spent last Sat

i Daniel was positive, polite, pure,
prayerful, pious, prompt, popular and
happy, because he was wise enough to
do as Sod said.
The service for "men only" in the
Presbyterian church on last Lord's
day was interesting and well attended.
The trood neoDle of Murray are
always ready to welcome desirable cit
izens, but men who run poolrooms and
saloons are not wanted.
When men work as hard for Christ
as they work for the "almighty dol
lar," and study II is gospel as intently
as they study the "gospel of wealth"
millennium glory will no longer be
"an iridescent dream."
Mrs. Mont Bobb is spending a few
days with her son, Hugh, at the old
If one man may neglect the church

Rev. K. G. Hamilton, pastor of the
Christian church at Cnadilla, will
preach and conduct the gospel ser

Hear the words of President Boose
veit: The liquor business tends to
produce criminality in our population
at lartre. and law-breaking among the
saloon keepers themselves. It de
h.ii-Mii not nn!v the bodv social, but
the body politic as well."
The little children of our village re
cently came home all excited saying:
"The" teacher is going to put us out of
school if we miss three days without
being sick or having a good excuse."
The rule is all right and will never
touch an honest pupil. Neither would
it touch an honest child of God if
adopted by the church.
Several persons have recently ex
pressed themselves as desirous of at
tending church and taking part in
Christ's service: but complain, and
sometimes quite bitterly, that other
people force them to work on the
Lord s holy day. How many people
work for you on the sacred day, while
God is saying, "In it thou shalt not do
my work, thou nor thy
servant?" Are we a free people, or
has slavery only changed its form?

Royal Highlanders Meet.
The Royal Highlanders met in reg
ular meeting last Saturday evening
with Miss Florence McDonald at her
home one mile east of Murray. There
was quite a number of the organiza
tion present and a very enjoyable
evening was had at the hospitality of
Miss McDonald. At 11 o'clock a line
supper was spread, to which all did
ample justice, and at a late hour all
departed for home longing for the
next meeting night that should be
called at the home of Miss McDonald.
Following were those present: Mr.
and Mrs. Lloyd Gapen. Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Carroll, Mr. and Mrs. Banard,
Mrs. Phil Brisbin, Mrs.Brendel, Misses
Viola Young, Minnie I. Wood, Anna

Sues for Corn.
In Justice Archer's court today
suit was filed wherein Thomas Camp
bell is plaintiff and John Law and
Mont Bobb are defendants. The peti
tion recities that according to terms
of rental of land Law was to deliver
200 bushels of shelled corn to Mont
Bobb. for which Campbell was to re
ceive the pay, and that said Law has
shelled and delivered his corn but
claims all as his own, and plaintiff
asks that a writ of replevin be issued
and he be given possession of the 200
bushels. A hearing will be had in the
case next Saturday.
In a recent lecture Dr. E. B. Tuteur
stated that cheerfulness is our only
salvation. We have to display it es
pecially at the dinner table, if we want
to enjoy our meals and todigest them.
It is easily said, but very ditlicult to
do where there is no appetite, where
there is disuust. The only way to ac
complish it is, to use Triner's Ameri
can Elixir of Bitter Wine. Take a
close before meals and within a short
time you will be surprised of the
healthy appetite it creates. This al
wavs is accompanied with hilarity,
good temper and cheerfulness. You
will be able to eat all you like and it
will cause you no difliculty. It is be-

The Shortest Day of the Year.
Tomorrow is the shortest day of the
year. Tomorrow morning, says the
Lincoln Journal, at about twelve min
utes before 7 the sun ceases its retreat.
Today the sun will be visible about
nine hours and twenty-seven minutes,
tomorrow nine hours and twenty-six
minutes, and the next day nine hours
and twenty-seven minutes again. Fri
day is therefore to be the shortest day
of the year. It may add something to
our Christmas cheer to know that the
shadows have at last turned back.
