Both of these young people have grown

To the Man Who Signs the Check.
The spirit of patriotic financial co
operation should govern us all at this
time and the most practical method
is for us to pay each other the bills we
owe. we are doing what we can in
that direction. We want you to help
us so to do, that is if we have
accomodated you in the past by extend
ing you credit. Onthe first of January
most every business ynan is compelled
to meet his obligations for the previous
twelve months, pad by the aid of those
who are indebted to us we expect to
keep in line of the business world, and
at this time we certainly need what is
due on our books, and we therefore
trust that all knowing themselves in
debted to us will call at their earliest
convenience and settle.

Tom Akeson was the possessor of a
good mule last week, but one of those
accidents that sometimes happens on
the farm overtook his muleship, and a
straw stack smothered him.
J. W. Williams farm sale last Friday
was well attended and the goods brought
fair prices. Mr. Williams will move to
Oklahoma, also his son Ed and son in
law, Lester Hoback.
Peter Spader, of near Murray, a re
sident of Cass county for twenty years,
loaded his goods and departed last week
for Osmond, Pierce county, where he
has a half section of land.
L. W. Ingwerson expects to leave
this week with J. D. Williams, Ed Wil
liams and Lester Hoback for Oklahoma,
and he will assist them in building a
house. Mrs. Ingwersen will reside in
town while her husband is away.
Word was received from Miss C. M.
Paine who is spending the winter in
California, is that she freezes up an the
morning, thaws out at noon, and the
liberal use of bed cloths is the only
thing that prevents freezing at night.
She is thinking of coming to Nebraska
for the winter and going to California
for the summer.
Mr. and Mrs. Tom Wiles departed
Tuesday morning for Texas, west of
Galeveston on the Gulf of Mexico coast
where they expect to spend the winter
if Mr. Wiles' health will permit. Ever
since the accident several months ago,
Mr. Wiles' health has been poor and
extremes of heat or cold effects his
head, and he hopes of finding a climate
of more even temeperature.

Yesterday a reception was given at
the home of Oscar Gapin and wife five
miles south of this city, in honor of R.
F. Dean and wife, who are visiting here
from South Haven, Michigan. The oc
casion also celebrated the fifty-first
anniversary of the marriage of Mr.
Gapin's mother, Mrs. Joshua Gapin,
who makes her home with her son. . The
event was enjoyed by every one present,
arrangements having been made for
the care, comfort and enjoyment of all,
and it in no way miscarried. R. F.
Dean, who is the father of Mrs. Gapin,
and his wife have been visiting here
and at Lincoln for some weeks and will
soon depart for their home in South
Haven. The reception was the calling
together of their friends for a good
social time before they should depart.
A delicious five course luncheon was
served to which all did ample justice, it
being one of the enjoyable features of
the occasion. Reminiscences were in
terspersed with music and recitations,
and readings and other numbers made
up a well arranged program for the
entertainment of those present. Miss
Gertrude Cole presided at the piano
and dispensed the most melodious
music, a very taking feature of the
The capping of the climax was the j
reading by Miss Anna Snyder, in which
she described the situation of a young
man waiting for his lady love to pre
pare to go to a reception. The young
lady was unable to make any progress
with her toilet, her bat would not set
straight, the ribbons would not tie
right, nor could she get her hair

time and' it getting late. The young
man in question began to fidget and
look at his watch, knowing full well
that they would be late. In the rendi
tion of this Miss Snyder did herself
proud, and was applauded to the echo.
She demonstrated her ability as an
elocutionist, showing that she was able
to master the most difficult pieces. The
afternoon flew by very rapidly and will
long be remembered by all who were
fortunate enough to be present.
Those to enjoy this happy event were
