One Who Was There.
Things in Murray are pretty
quiet these days, thank you, but
this condition is in no way con
trary to the balance of the towns
and cities of eastern Nebraska,
where the busy farmer has just a
little more business than he
knows bow to handle. Hut this
condition at the present time is
very nceeptaule to everyone in
both the cities and villages, for
it sure means better days by and
by, for the labors of our farmers
will certainly bear fruit this year
From many of the old settlers we
learn that the crop conditions of
Cass county were never better in
the Journal Readers
same to this office it will appear undei
the past forty years. The har
vesting days are a little early this
vear, and 'very man that wants
to work can now find good wages
in the wheat fields. The wheat
crop is good, but must be looked
alter right, now, and the farmers
are on the ground looking after
it, which makes the business con
dition of our little towns pretty
quiet. Some farmers have already
contracted their crop of wheat,
and as soon as threshed will be
placed on the market. Z. W.
Shrader tells us that he has sold
his crop at 75 cents per bushel,
which is a good price at this time.
