The New Store Room.
Iliall Tutt are at last in their
new store room, moving in this
week. The hoys are stepping
around as proud as the only old
turkey gobbler that escaped the
last Thanksgiving dinner parly,
and when we say dial I hey have
cause lo feel proud we believe
thai we are placing I he matter
very mildly. Kverylhing is new,
bright ami clean, and we do not
believe there is a liner store room
in Hie county. Who would not
feel proud? The people of Murray
should all feel proud over the facl
that they have two young busi
ness men in their midst who have
perfect contidence in the future
of Murray, and erect a business
house like this in their town. Wo
believe that it is the duty of the
people of Murray and vicinity to
lend them encouragement al every
opportunity. Messrs. lliatt and
Till I are young men with a future
and that future at Ihis lime has
been placed in ttic hands of the
people of Murray and vicinity.
They realize that their future lies
in the gaining of your confidence
and good will, that will lead to a
share of your patronage, and lo
that end their future has been cast
among you and we venture the as
sertion that 1 hoy. will exert every
effort lo gain the fullest con
fidence of the entire community.
They are young men with busi
ness ability; they are honest and
on the square all the lime, and we
can almost see where they will be
successful to (he fullest sense of
the term. May I hey continue to
grow is the wish of the Journal.

The Joke on Lee.
Our excellent friend, Lee Old
ham, has just passed his sixty
eighth birthday, and in honor of
the occasion his many gentlemen
friends planned a very pleasant
celebration of the affair last Sat
urday evening. Lee was taking
the world rather quietly at his
home reading the evening paper,
when Dr. Gilmorc appeared on
the scene and requested that Lei
was needed down at the Lough-
ridge hall, where the citizens were
gathering to settle the posloftlce
appointment in Murray. The
doctor told Lee that several
citizens were up for the place and
that he was needed lo make the
proper select ion. Lee did not take
much stock in this story, bul as
he had never had cause to doubt
the dotcor's word, he proceeded
to go down to the meeting and
make a scrap for his friends, as
he usually does. Arriving at the
ball he found just about the num
ber of men present that the doctor
had told him of, but the Murray
postofllec was the least thing in
their minds at that time. Here
they had gathered with many good
things lo eat. and enjoy a pleasant
evening with Mr. Oldham, and as
sist him in celebrating his birth
day anniversary. It was sure a
pleasant time for all.
Owing to the inclement weath
er December 5, the business meet
ing of the K. N. K. will be held at
Kenosha church Thursday after
noon. December 10, 1912. All
members are urged to be present,
as there will be election of officers
and other business of importance.
