Burlington Passenger Earnings.
The report of the Burlington road
shows that its receipts from passenger
business with the state of Nebraska
during July was $202,800.72 and the re
ceipts from interstate tickets $127,353.06.
The passenger revenue of the Burling
ton system for the year 1906, was $19,
971,000, including mail and express. It
is estimated that the state traffic in Ne
braska for July was one-sixth of the
passenger business of the system.
There is nothing in the report to prove
the statement that the company is re
ceiving less money than was received
before the two-cent fare law went into
The revenue from freight traffic on
the Burlington in Nebraska during July
was as follows:
On freight forwarded -State, $393,

When Most Attractive
Annie Vio Gates, the talented asso
ciate editor of the Auburn Granger,
has been awarded second prize for an
swering the question propounded by the
St. Louis Post Disdatch. The question
was: "When is a man most attractive?"
The answer was: "A man is the most
attractive to a woman when he has
reached that stage which enables him
to willingly cater to 'her wishes exclu
sively; to be blind to her short comings
and to think of her as the 'tripple ex
tract' of perfection, no matter whether
his years be IS or 81." There is a ray
of hope even for "old folks" in this,
and we have a very near and very dear
friend who is rapidly approaching the
age limit, and he should cut this out
and paste it in his hat.
Afflicted with Sore Eyes for 33 Years.
I have been afflicted with sore eyes
for thirty-three years. Thirteen years
ago I became totally blind and was
blind for six years. My eyes were
badly inflamed. One of my neighbors
insisted upon my trying Chamberlain's
Salve and gave me half a box of it.
To my surprise it healed my eyes and
my sight came back to me. P. E.

Salve is for sale by F, G. Fricke &

He Found Out it Was Leaded
Arthur White a son of W. A. White,
had the misfortune to have been pre
sented with an air rifle, which became
the interesting topic and object of all
the boys around his neighborhood. The
other afternoon a crowd of bos collect
ed and were trying the gun which re
fused to operate. Little George Dovey
son of Geo. E. Dovey, about seven
years old, thought he could make it
work and putting one finger over the
muzzle of the gun and pulled the trig
ger, with the result that it went that
time. There was a piercing scream
and he ran to his mother. He said the
gun hurt his finger, and upon exami
nation it was found that the shot was
imbedded in his finger, and the services
of a physician had to be employed to
get the shot out.
The finger will be sore for some time
but, if it has caused him to fight shy of
this kind of a paying he will not have
suffered in vain. This shooting iron
proposition for children to play with is
a dangerous proposition both for the
child and everything in the neighbor

Closing Out
I have decided to close out my entire

all furnishings just as soon as possible,
and discontinue carrying these lines of
goods, and place in a larger line of
staple and fancy groceries. In order to
do this I will make some of the lowest
prices ever offered in Murray on this
line of goods as long as the present
stock lasts. Everything will be sold at
or even below first cost. Call in and

The Murdock School Muddle
At Murdock a good deal of trouble is
being experienced by the fact that the
old school board, two members of whose
term expired before the beginning of
school for this year, attempting to
make an appointment of a teacher for
the coming year. They appointed Miss
Olga Neitzel, this purported election
being for the year which comes after a
majority of the board's term of office
had expired. When the new board
came into office, they entirely ignored
the action of the former board and
elected another person for their teacher.
Now there arises a controversy between
the two factions. They have appealed
the matter to the county superinten
denthe rendering a decision that a
school board could not elect a teacher
for a longer period than the time for
which they have been elected them
selves. Whether this wilr settle the
matter or not, is not known as Miss
Neitzel evinces a disposition to hold the
school anyway, but later developments
will determine.
Brings Carpenter Horns
George H. Griffin, the superintendent
of the Masonic Home was a passenger
to Omaha this morning where he goes
to bring Mr. Geo. H. Carpenter home,
who was injured on the 23rd of Septem
ber by falling on the steps of the audi
torium at the time of the fiftieth anni
versary of the establishment of the
Grand Lodge of Masons. Mr. Carpen
ter who is a man wed advanced in years,
was quite severely injured and it was
feared he would not survive the acci
dent but the rallying forces of his con
stitution came to his aid, and he is now
able to Veturn home. His many friends
will be pleased to know of his conva-lecence.

Ten thousand men are wanted im

Duty? Whose?
To bring a whole nation to, and to
keep it on, the acme of physical strength
is certainb a sacred duty. Whose? It
is impossible to regulate it by law or to
infarce it by punishment. Is it not the
duty of every citizen, to try to keep
himself and his family in full health and
strength? Let all of us do so and it
will not take long before our natk n
will be the strongest one in the world.
It is only necessary to be moderate in
everything and to pay close attention
to the laws of nature. As soon as an
indisposition is felt, Trinener's Ameri
can Elixir of Bitter Wine should be em
played. It acts directly on the diges
tive system and speedily dispells all
irregulations in its functions. It not
only creats a healthy appetite but
makes the organs strong enough to ac
cept, digest and assimilate all food. It
will renew a I blood, will strengthen
the nerves aud will make the whoe
body powerful. Eo not allow your di
gestion to weaken; use in ail cases of
weakness Tnner's American Elixir of
