It shows an increase in business, and is considered one of the reliable banking institu tions of Cass county. C. S.

The affair was given to their friends only, and as the hall was small a limited number of invitations were sent out. A good crowd were in attendance and all re port a most pleasant time. The Avoca orchestra furnished the music. The winds of March have no terror to the user of De Witt's Carbolized Witch Hazel Salve. It quickly heals chapped and cracked skin.

FROM AN OLD PATRON One Year in His New Home in Furnas County, Nebraska. (To the F.iitor of the .Journal ). Hoi.imooK, Nebraska, March 1 1907. I thought I would write a few lines to the Journal. Just one year ago tonight I arrived in Hendley Furnas county. The weather at, that time was not much like it is at pres ent, as we have been enjoying summe weather for the past three weeks. Farmers have disposed of most o their grain at a fair price, there bein a large crop. Corn made from 40 to 55 bushels per acre. There was large crop of fall wheat put in last fall. Some spring wheat and oats will be sown this spring. Farmers generally put in about one-half corn and small grain each. I have 105 acres of fall wheat that looks line, with prospect of a large crop, and have 150 acres left to put in corn. Will plan a few acres in cane and millet for hay The ground is in good condition for another excellent crop. One man can do more in Southwest Nebraska than two men in Cass county. I, for my part, think Southwest Nebraska and Northwestern Kansas the place for a young man to make money, although neither is the place for a lazy man. I am well pleased with my first year in the west, and expect to go farther southwest before I settle. Find in closed the price for a year's subscrip tion to the Journal. I would not do without it for double the price. Wil you please change my address from Hendley to Holbrook, Neb., R. F. D No. 2. Hoping this will miss the waste basket, I am, Resyectfully Yours, R. M.

A number of art supply houses have inaugurated traveling exhibits which have been exhibited in many of the larger cities and some of the smaller ones. The originators of the plan are the Horace K. Turner Company of Boston, Mass. We have made arrange ments with this firm to send one of the exhibits here for the week of April 22 27. This is a collection of two hun dred reproductions in original colors of the world's master-pieces. These are large pictures and not an inferior one in the two hundred. The exhibit will be held iu Coates' Hail. A small admission fee will be charg ed, catalogues sold, orders taken for pictures, and many other ways used to secure a fund with which we expect to place one or two of these beautiful pictures in each school room in the city. The only expense we are to in cur in bringi".? the pictures here will be the freight from Auburn, 2seb, to Plattsmouth. The only condition im posed by the firm is that we spend the proceeds with them for school pictures. We are planning to hold a school work display at the same time and place, and are now collecting material for that purpose. We are planniug to give the patrons of our effort the most value for your money you ever receiv ed, and will later announce the full plans. We ask all the other organiza tions in town to keep our dates in mind and in that way help us. City Teachers. Are you tired, fagged out, nervous, gleepleis, feel mean?

Mr. and Mrs. Bert Tucker spent one day last week at Earnest Young's. Walter Wunderlich thinks that kill ing "two birds with one stone" is the it, and was successful enough to shoot two ducks with one shot. A number of this section could not resist the temptation in seeing so many ducks and getting the numbe they wanted they picked up Tuesday morning and went to the river to camp for a week. We wish them good luck and will be ready to assist them if any assistance is necessary. (From the Ketrister) A large two-story boarding house is being built at the Opp quarry.

Frank Massie brought in a load of hogs Tuesday and took back a pocket full of money. He got $0.40 for his porkers which is certainly a good price although they have been up to $6.80. The price of bull pups has "riz.'' F P. Sheldon bought one a short time since for ten dollars, and now he is offered fifteen for the same animal. Better take it Frank, its thirteen dol lars more than the brute is worth. As soon as congress adjourns, our congressman, Hon. E. M. Pollard, is going to join a party of about sixty other Imembers, who will go to the Isthmus of Panama to see the condi tions as they really exist and be the better enabled to vote intelligently on all matters effecting the canal.
