What would be the easiest method
f paying a man you owed this
amount? Could you gather up a
ten-dollar bill, a five, four ones, a
half, a quarter, two dlme3 and four
coppers? There Is a much better
way for the man with a checking
account. He writes $19.99 on a
blank check, signs his name and
hands It to the other party. Carry
a check book with you always.

Annual Missionary Picnic.
The annual picnic of the Mlsslen
ary society of the Presbyterian
hurch was held In Oldham's yard
on last Friday afternoon, and It was
Indeed a most pleasant gathering,
there being about sixty present. This
society made up of the ladles of the
church have certainly been a wonder
ful help in the advancement of the
work In all departments, and last
April the president, Mrs. Brown, de-
lsed a way by which they could be
still greater help, and raise the
money with which to build a new
kitchen to the church building. She
gave each of the members 25 cents
and told them to invest It In a way
they might choose best, and return
the 25 cents and the earnings to her
at the time of the annual picnic, and
on that dote the good ladles return
ed the neat sum of $130, and some
are yet to hear from. This Is pretty
good from an original forty quarters
Mrs. W. S. Smith made the larg
eRt amount of any of the members
which was $10, and she received the

Two of Murray's Most Excellent
Young People and Guests
Enjoy Pleasant Evening
Monday evening, August 15, 1910,
was an evening long to be remember
ed by two of Murray's most excellent
young people, Mr. and Mrs. W. C.
Brown. The occasion was given In
honor of their fifth wedding anni
versary and it was celebrated la a
most pleasant and unique manner,
Some of the friends of Mr. and Mrs.
Brown planned tne occasion, which
was to be a surprise, but owing to
the honored couple having planned
for the evening out of the city, they
were apprised of what wa3 going on
about 6 o'clock; up to this hour the
well laid plans worked charmingly
The friends had planned for a mer
ry trip over the town In an automo
bile, and to make stops at a number
f the residences for the partaking
of an excellent three course luncheon,
one course for each stop. In due
time the auto landed at the pleasant
home of Mr. and Mrs. Brown, and
they were Invited to enjoy a cool
arive on tnis very warm summer
evening, which was indeed most ln
vltlng and of course promptly accept
ed. The auto was made by the big
factory that is expected to be launch
ed In Murray In the near future, de
signed and patented by W. G. Boe
deker, J. W. Holmes and Dr. G. H
Gilmore. It was a car of most strik
ing proportions, built along the clas
slcal lines under the supervision of
these talented designers, of material
reputation. The body was of the
Kandaulet style with most of the
landaulet removed, artistic decora
tions taking Its plJce. A Holmes 8
cylinder air-cooled engine Is used In
this -Boed-Holm-Mome type of land
ulet, started on spark as most cylin
ders are, especially when used to
sparking. The twelve foot shaft
drive attached to the rear axle was a
unique thing in mechanical construc
tion. The corborator on this car
gives the proper mixture and Is so
adjusted that it will adjust itself to
atmospheric conditions. The proper
mixture without too much water us
ually strikes the taste of an expert
"chauffeur," as the occasion was a
blowout on four wheels. Tire trou
ble was joyfully anticipated. The
muffler was removed of the Presto
Electro-Olio type, causing the polish
ed gold and silver finish to glisten
with respendent beauty. The car
glided along like a summer dream
like a gondolla In the streets of Ven
Ice, with the mellow moonlight beam
ing upon Its swan-like bow, to the
pleasant home of Mr. and Mrs. James
Holmes. Here the first stop was made
and the first course of the excellent
three course luncheon had been pre
pared under the supervision of Mr
and Mrs. W. G. Boedeker, Mr. and
Mrs. James Holmes, Mr. and Mrs. O.
A. Davis and Miss Margie Walker.
From here the merry party again
took up the most pleasant and un
tiring drive that was for the pas
sengers to the pleasant home of
Mr. and Mrs. Oldham, where the
second course was in readiness, and
where the entertainers were: Mr. and
Mrs. Alva Long, Mr. and Mrs. T. J.
Brendel, Mr. and Mrs. James Lough
rldge, Isabella and Albert Young,
Pauline and Fay Oldham and Mrs.
The next and third scheduled stop
was at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W.
S. Smith, end the party arrived ex
actly on time. Here the entertain
ers for the third course of the lunch
con were Dr. and Mrs. G. H. Gil-
more, Mr. and Mrs. S. O. Pitman,
Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Smith and Miss
Thusly ended one of the most
pleasant evening's spent In Murray
for many a day, all the merry en
tertainers wishing their honored
towns-people, Mr. and Mrs. Brown
many more such happy occasions, and
that they may live and reside In Mur
ray to enjoy a similar occasion at the
fiftieth anniversary of their wedding.

Returns From Cedar County.
J. L. Young of near Murray who
owns land in Cedar county, this state,
returned from a two weeks visit to
that county this mornln. Mr.
Young is delighted with the country
in northwest Nebraska, and will move
his family to his farm there next
spring. He purchased his land one
year ago last March, paying $75 per
acre for It and was offered a raise
of $25 per acre while he was out
there this time. His oats crop went
better than 40 bushels per acre, and
corn will average even better than
that. Mr. Young says the agricul
tural report for last year will show
Cass county's yield per acre at 28
bushels while the same report will
show 42 bushels average for Cedar
county. Alfalfa does well there, the
men having this crop have harvested
two crops and are ready for the third
cutting. Mr. Young saw the follow
ing Cass county men: F. W. Klopp
Ing, M. Fleming, Will Lewis, Gus
Lowther, Jesse Lowther, J. H. Norrls
and all of whom are doing well on
their own farms and are enthusiastic
In their praise of the country. Miss
Mary Troop, who formerly conducted
a notion store here is located in Cole
ridge and conducts a confectionery
store there, and Is doing well. When
Mr. Young removes to Cedar county
