ECEXT ptnfistirs show tliat the number of
women bank depositors is steadily increas
ing. It is a healthy sign of business condi
tions. There was a time when the number
of women depositors was practically nil.
With the advent in the business world of
so many women it was assured that the
number of female depositors would show an increase.
Women are inclined to be more thrifty than men.
Thrift and banking go hand in hand. Many women in
this community have bank accounts. To those who
have nt this appeal is made. Open a bank account

Meets With An Accident.
From "Wednesday's taTlv.
Yesterday Harry Deal was released
from a five weeks' quarantine for
scarlet fever and allowed to have his
liberty which ho had been deprived of
by sickness, and the young man was
allowed to enjoy his release but a
short time. Last evening while skat
ing at the rollor rink he fell to the
floor and in doing so his left wrist
struck the skate of some one and in
flicted two very severe gashes whicT
it was necessary to have dressed by a
From "Wednesday's Pally.
It was a profound shock to the com
munity last evening when it was
learned that Mrs. Arthur L. Baker of!
Murray had been taken by death al
most without warning, and to many it
seemed almost impossible that this
lady, who but a few days ago they had
in their midst had been suddenly call
ed from her earthly life by the Mas
Mrs. Baker motored to Omaha yes
terday morning and entered the Pres
byterian hospital there for an opera
tic but as the anesthetic was being
nistered the heart of the lady was
r.rong enough for the ordeal and
came to her without the slight
arning shortly efter 10 o'clock.
The death comes as a great shock to
the bereaved husband and daughter,
who are left to mourn the departure
cf this estimable lady. The unexpect
edness of the blow has made itself
most stunning to the relatives and
friends and only time can soften the
intenseness of the sting of death.
' Miss Ida Parr was born on a farm
near Sheridan, Indiana, February 13,
1872, and there grew to womanhood
and receiving her education in that
community where her family was
among the most prominent in that
portion of the rtr.te. In 1890 she
came to Murray, Nebraska, where her
sister, Mrs. B. F. Brendel, was living,
and for a number of years made her
home with her sister and family until
her marriage on June 13, 1807, to Ar
thur L. Baker. To this union there was
born one daughter, Miss Opha, who is
left behind with the father and hus
band to share his grief. One sister,
Mrs. B. F. Brendel, resides at Mur
ray, while two sister, one half-sister,
four brothers, one half-brother and
the aged mother of the deceased re
side near the old home in Indiana.
The funeral of Mrs. Baker will be
held tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock
from the Christian cTiurch in Murray,
of which she was a member for sev
eral years, and the body will be laid
to rest in the Horning cemetery, just
south of Plattsmouth.
To the husband and daughter the
deepest sympathy of the entire com
munity will be extended in their hour
of grief and separation from their
wife and mother.
