Some Fine Capital.
J. L. Young of Soleridue, Neb.,
was in South Omaha this week on
Wednesday with 71 head of his
cattle that he fed the oast winter.
and when we say that John' has
proven a successful feeder we be
lieve that we are stating the facts
very mildly. The 7 1 head . of
steers that he sold Wednesday
averaged 1,400 pounds and he re
ceived 8.25 per 100 for them, the
neat sum of $115.50 each. These
eers were fed for Ave months.
and made a gain of ion pounds to
the head. They were fed on corn
and alfalfa hay. One cow in the
bunch weighed 1,500 pounds, for
which he received $7 iter 100. or
08 for her; another one weighing
1,200, Mr. Young received $0.25
for. lie si ill has about ready for
the market 120 head thai will be
sold within the next thirty days.
Ile has about 00 head more that,
will be fed during the summer.
All of these cattle were Herefords
and Shorthorns. He also has about
200 head of hogs that he expects
to make as good returns for him.
Mr. Young had a first investment
of 25.000 in this entire bunch of
stock and can readily see thai
he will come out in fine shape.
Charles Boedeker of Murray was
up to see the bunch of 71 head
and himself and many other cat
tlemen claim they have never seen
such fine slock on a five-months'

AIIWc Ask is a Trial to
Be Fair With You
L'oostert for a Rural High School
.. At. a niee'ling of the citizens of
Murray ami vicinity the question
oi -establishing a. High school at
Murray was discussed. James
Loughridae, as, director of the
: Murray district school, "presided
over the meeting. . 0. Ai Davis
acted as secretary and delivered
a t alkjm the necessary .legal steps
to (he organization of a rural
High school, the amount of as
sessable property'; in the various
districts, .. the cost of a building
and the possible expense for the
maintenance of such a school.
According to the Nebraska
school laws, a rural High school
may be established when "any two
or more adjoining districts in any
county of this state which are not
able or do not deem it expedient
to maintain a school of more than
eight grades may unite for the
purpose of forming one High
school district and maintaining
i ne High school as hereinafter
provided." To such an organiza-
lion i reiiuires the majority oi
the voters present at the scboo
n ting in each district. The
officers of a rural High school
shall be the directors of the
various districts known as
trustees. It shall be their duty
to manage the entire affairs of
the High school, except ttie sale
of properly and the levying of
taxes. The expense for the main
tenance of a district High school
shall be borne equally by each dis
trict, according to the amount of
The majority of people in the
various districts are enthusiastic
over this enterprise and if the
question is properly brought be
fore the people a High school al
Murray will be assured. A com
mittee of nine was appointed to
canvass the outlying districts and
explain to the voters the or
ganization of such a school.
W hen one visits the Missouri
Paicflc depot on a Sunday even
ing and sees Ihe great number of
yountr people leaving for Platts
mouth and Weeping Water to at
tend High school they will be im
pressed with the necessity of a
local High school.
Such Proof as This Should Con
vince Any Plattsmouth
The public endorsement of a
local citizen is the best proof that
can be produced. None better,
none stronger can be had. When .
a man comes forward and testifies
to his fellow-citizens, addresses
his friends and neighbors,, you
may be sure he is thoroughly con
vinced or. he Would not do so.
Telling one's experience when it
is for the public good is an act of
kindness that should be ap
preciated. The following state
ment given by a resident of
Plattsmouth adds one more to the.
many eases of Home Endorsement
which, are being published about
Doan's Kidney Pills. Read it.
W. M., Barclay, proprietor , of
restaurant, Main street, Platts
mouth, Neb., says: "I have' not
had a single symptom of kidney
complaint since Doan's Kidney
Pills cured me several years ago.
I am glad to verify the statement
I gave in 1908 endorsing them. I
had an extreme lameness across
my loins, when I began using
Doan's Kidney Pills. This remedy
soon corrected the trouble."
