The statement of the condition of
the Murray State Bank will be found
elsewhere in this issue. It shows an
increase in business, and is considered
one of the reliable banking institu

gentlemanly cashier, and his able as
sistant, Less Hall, are genial in all
their business transactions, which no
doubt accounts for the general pros
perity of this bank.
A very pleasant social affair was
given in the Manners & Loughridge

Mr. and Mrs. Bert Philpot, who were

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.

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

Art Exhibit for the Benefit of the Public
Schools, April 24, 25, 26 and 27.
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.
