Homes & Smith Trade Merchan
dise Stock for Land in
Wednesday afternoon a trade was
completed in which Holmes & Smith
transfer their stock of merchandise
In exchange for 600 acres or land 14
miles from Denver, Colorado. The
ranch Is taken at the sum of $16,000
and the stock of goods Is to be in
voiced at erst and carriage. Mr.
August Nost, who owns the land, will
make the transfer as soon as the in
voice of goods is completed. , Messrs.
Holmes and Smith have been in busi
ness Jn Muray for a good many years,
and by their many excellent qualities,
Including their gentlemanly manner
of doing business, built up a large
business, and their legion of friends
will regret their selling out. Both
gentlemen uwn fine residences In
Murray, and until they dispose of the
store building and residences they
will retain their residence in the
town. And in case they do decide to
go west, their many friends will re
gret the move. No better families
reside anywhere than the Holmes and
Smith people, and no on regrets
their selling out more than the
Journal. And they can rest assured
of the fact that our best wishes will
ever attend them.
A Strange Complexion.
Sometimes we notice persona hav
ing a strange complexion. They are
pale and yellowish, we might say,
muddy. The face is often the seat
of either an eruption or of brownish
spots. Such a complexion is an elo
quent Bign of some disorder of the
digestive system, either of the liver
or of the stomach or intestines, or
of a combination of them. In such
cases Trlner's American Elixir of
Bitter Wine is to e most earnestly
recommended. Use It for some time
according to directions, preserve the
common-sense health laws and note
the effect. Your liver and Intestines
will gradually resume thefr natural
activity, constipation, with its un
pleasant difficulties, will disappear,
the blood will become pure and make
the complexion clear. Trlner's Ameri
can Elixir of Bitter Wine will also
strengthen the nerves, relieve ner
vousness, despondency, irritability,
headache, colic and cramps. At drug
stores. Jos. Triner, 1333-1339 South

YOUNG PEOPLE OF MURRAY
60 TO LINCOLN TO
A marriage license was issued yes
terday In Lincoln to Mr. Melville It,
Young, aged 23, and Miss Edith A
Hansen, aged 17. These young peoplo
boarded the train yesterday morning
that the writer stopped from In Mur
ray, on his weekly visit to that burg
While nothing of a suspicious nature
pervaded the countenance of either
of the parties, yet there was a sort of
a suspicion entered our mind that
something would happen ere tbe
shades of evening drew nigh. And
we do not think the announceemnt
of the marriage of these worthy
young people will bo any surprise to
their many friends in and arouna
Murray. The groom is well known
in the community, but at present re
sides in Fairmont, Neb. The bride is
well known and is very popular with
all who know her. The Journal joins
their many friends In extending con
gratulations, with the sincere hope

Many Cathartic. Tend to Caiue
Injuries to the Bowels.
If you are subject to constipation,
you should avoid strong drugs and
cathartics. They only give temporary
relief and their reaction is harmful
and Bometimes more annoying than
constipation. They in no way effect
a cure and their tendency Is to
weaken the already weak organs
with which they come in contact.
We honestly believe that we have
the best constipation treatment ever
devised. Our faith in it Is so strong
that we sell it on the positive guar
antee that. It shall not cost the user
a cent if it does not give entire satis
faction and completely remedy con
stipation. This preparation is called
Rexall Orderlies. These are prompt,
soothing and most effective in action.
They are made of a recent chemical
discovery. Their principal ingredient
is odorless, tasteless and colorless.
Combined with other well known in
gredients, long established for thefr
usefulness in the treatment of con
stipation, it forms a tablet which is
eaten Just like canady. They may
be taken at any time, either day or
night, without fear of causing any in
convenience whatever. They do not
gripe, purge nor cause nausea. They
act without causing any pain or ex
cessive looseness of the bowels. They
are ideal for children, weak, delicate
persons and aged people as well as
for the most hearty person .
They come In two size packages, 12
tablets 10 cents, 36 tablets 25 cents.
Remember you can obtain them only
at our store Tho Rexall Store. F.
