Murray, - - - Nebraska
The residents of Murray will in
a very short time be receiving
their mail through the hands of
Postmaster V. S. Smith, as that
gentleman has been appointed to
that, position held by Arthur Haker
for the past twelve or fourteen
years. 1 lie nomination oi .Mr.
Smith has been confirmed by the
senate and it only requires the
acceptance of his bond and the re
ceiving of the commission when
he will be placed in charge of the
office at Murray. Mr. Smith is a
gentleman eminently well fitted
for the position to which he has
been appointed, and a worthy suc
cessor to the genial gentleman
who has had charge of the office
for the past few years. As soon
as Ihe office is transferred to Mr.
Smith he expects to remove it to
his store where it can be handled
a great deal more conveniently to
him. The Journal extends con
gratulations to postmaster Smith
and trusts .that he will have a
most successful administration
of the office. The retiring post
master is a worthy gentleman,
and one who retains the confi
dence and respect of all who know

FORTY YEARS AGO
Item of Interest to Our Reader
Gleaned from the Newspaper
Files of Many Years Ago.
A Movement That Forty Years
Ago Was Stirring Up
A movement is on foot lo grade
these roads and get them in run
ning tinier, for the benefit of our
Nebraska City friends, we give the
case' as it stands, being informed
that many persons down there do
not understand that aid has been
voted in Cass county for both
roads and not" one alone, and that
Cass county people are interested
in the building of both roads
alike. One hundred and thirty
thousand dollars are voted for
what we call the trunk road. Five
thousand dollars a mile are voted
for the Weeping Water road. The
Trunk bonds expire on the 30lh
day of June next, while the W. W.
bonds have over one year from
that lime to run.
Now none of use want to
lose the chance of any roads in
the eastern part of the state.
We have pointed out the ad
vantages of such roads on this
side of the river, in Nebraska, so
often that we are almost tired of
The Time Will Soon Be Here
when you will need that new Heater. We want to

market than the Round Oak.
BAKER & NICKELS,
Murray, - Nebraska
We are adding to our harness line as rapidly as the
river counties we like so much we
will go over the ground again.
These roads, if built, will bring
taxable property within the state.
They will keep money here in
stead of sending it away.
They build up towns and vil
lages and constitute a home mar
ket that will absorb more or less
of the farmers' produce that can
not be shipped abroad. They will
bring passengers and travel
through our river counties and
give them a chance to see these
counties and invest in them. Men
will be more apt to select homes
in a land they can travel through
than one they only view from a
distance. Lastly, they will open
a vast ami new outlet for the
former lo dispose of his produce,
and place the towns along both
lines on the great highway lo the
ocean at Oalveston, or somewhere
in that neighborhood in a few
years. The money and the travel, the
wealth and the new blood of the
state have been carried right by
us and beyond us to the far west
for some years, leaving Ihe fairest
and richest country in the state
behind in the race for settlement.
Don't you see this settlers in
Oloe; in Cass? Had these roads
been built some years ago there
would have been no "A. & N."
Neb. Citv would have divided the
trade with Lincoln, she may yet
when once on a great southern
thorotighfore and not on a side
If we understand the matter,
they are about to vote for an ex
tension of the "Northwestern"'
bonds in Otoe, that will give us
these roads at once, with all these
advantages. We hope no one in
Cass county will be fooli-h
enough to oppose this plan. It
will help Cass county more than
can be dreamed of now. In (doe
and Neb. City we consider it al
most their salvation in the fu
ture. I)o not let the chance slip.
We care not what you call the
road. Call it the N. W., W. W.. or
what you please, make the main
line up Ihe W. W. if you like, only
give us the outlet, and do not let
this chance slip to build two roads
through a section of country at
present left one side of the trael
and trade of the slate. One of
the finest portions at that. We
sincerely hope that the judicious
and far-seeing friends of Otoe
and Neb. City will see this and
feel that this is our last chance
to retain our prestige and our
business in the eastern counties.
Every settler in these two coun
ties has a stake in this mailer,
and in seeing these roads built.
Let none then throw a stone in
the way of success.
