profitable dinner was given at that
time, the net receipts of which
amounted to $43.55. The material for
the new side walk cost $49.5K, so this
dinner given by the ladies paid for
the material with the exception of a
few dollars. The work was done by
donation of the men folks of the dis
trict, and for this effort started and
carried out by those interested in the
schools we now have in the neighbor
hood of 1000 square feet of good con
crete walk leading up to the school
house without one penny of cost to the
district. Such movements as this are
certainly commendable, and should re

A Chicken Comes to the Dance.
There was a stranee face that de
sired to attend the social dance given
by the .Murray Dancing Club last Sat
urday evening at the Puis & Ganse

tendance the stranger was not ad
mitted, even though he did accampany
ore of the most popular and well liked
citizens of our community. Should he
desire to attend one cf the commun
ity base ball games there would have
been no objection to his admittance
for he was a genuine full blooded fowl
and belonged to Nick Friedrich. Mr.
and Mrs. Friedrich did not get start
ed to the dance until rather late, and
one of their fine chickens had taken
his perch on their auto for the night.
Being on the rear of the car they did
not notice the chicken until they ar
lived in Murray. Being quite at home
;.nd familiar with the auto he remain
ed with it until the dance was over
and returned home with Mr. and Mrs.
Friedrich, having enjoyed the trip a
great deal. Some chicken-! are allow
ed at some dances, but not all chick
ens are allowed at all dances, and this
one was refused admittances.

able for building and making im
provements around your farm home

demand for good goods and the fact
that it can always be found at this
lumber yard at the right prices are
the causes for the increased business.

business of this locality, not only from
the fact that it is due him, but be
cause he is ready and willing to meet
all competition on the numerous
grades of lumber.
