SOME OF THE FINEST CAT
TLE OF THE PRESENT SEASON
A. F. Boedekr, residing near Ne
hawka, shippe'd a carload of cattle
from this station on' Mondoy of this
week that were among the toppers of
the season in South Omaha. The fol
lowing is taken from the South Omaha
Stockman-Journal in regard to them:.
A. F. Boedeker of Nehawka, is rais
ing cattle on his high priced land for
feeding purposes. A carload which
he brought in today averaged 1,478
pounds and sold at $9.75 after being
on feed for five months. They were
out of his own high grade Short
horn cows and were allowed to run
with their mother suntil six months
old. They were roughed through the
winter and run on pasture the second
summer. On December 12 they went
on feed, being given alfalfa hay up
to April 1, after which they were
given shelled corn. At the time they
were placed in the feed yards they
weighed 1000 pounds so they made a
gain of 478 pounds. It will be noted
that Mr. Boedeker holds his cattle
longer than a good many farmers who
are raising their own feeding stock
preferring to turn out heavy been in
stead of baby beef. The cattle he
marketed today were coming three-
BECAME VERY SICK FROM
THE STING OF A BEE
Miss Pauline Oldham was very ill
for a few hours Wednesday morning,
by posioning from the sting of a bee.
She was looking after work of the
caring for the various lines of stock
on the place when one of these busy
little fellows took a sudden dislike to
her and proceeded to make the fight
as is usually waged by the busy bee,
and while Miss Pauline was only stung
the one time, the poison from the
stinger seemed to be carried to most
all portions of her body in a very short
time, and for several hours she was
very sick from the effects of same
There have been cases of this sort
that have resulted quite serious
Medical attention was called imme-
ditely and upon scattering the poison
relief came to her soon thereafter.

Master Leslie L. Baxter has prov
en himself to be one of the lucky prize
winners in the Calumet Baking Pow
der Co. baby naming contest, and this

young man is to be congratulated upon
his success in the campaign, he has
already received the five brand new $5

DEATH OF MISS DORIS LAND.
Friends here will be shocked to
learn of the death of Miss Doris Land,
of Los Angeles, Calif., after an illness
of a few weeks of neryous prostration
and heart trouble. Miss Land was a
Nebraska resident up to a few months
ago, when she went to California for
her health, but was called to eternity
instead. Miss Lamb was young lady
of good character, and her many
friends will be grieved to learn the
sad news. No funeral arrangements
PULLMAN HANGS UP
NEW RECORD IN RUN
The high cost of gasoline has no
terrors for the man who owns a
Pullman. The T. G. Northwall com
pany, local representatives of the
Pullman car, has just received an in
teresting account of a gruelling test
mide by G. C. Eichelberger of Pitts
burgh, and his associates, who drove
nine Pullmans from York, Pa., to the
smoky city, a distance of 220 miles,
averaging 19.2 miles per gallon of

how his Pullmans defied the Alle-
ghenies and put to rout the gasoline
"Leaving the factory with nine cars
at 4 o'clock p. m., we drove to Gettys
burg, went over the battlefield, and
then to Chambersburg. Stopping
there over night, we left Sunday
morning, driving through to Pitts
burg, covering approximately 170
miles without a particle of trouble to
any car. In fact a high-priced car
could not have given better service.
"We crossed six mountains on the
trip and anyone who knows the road
will tell you that the-bajance of it is
hard on gasoline, but all our cars
came through with good average, the
cloverleaf roadster making 19.02 miles
per gallon and the touring cars from
17 to 18. Omaha World-Herald.
The Pullman cars are handled in
Murray by George Nickels, who will
be more than pleased to demonstrate
the many good points of this car to
you at any time.
MURRAY YOUNG PEOPLE
MARRIED III OMAHA
From Tuesday' Daily.
Yesterday in Omaha occurred the
marriage of two of Cass county's
young people, Miss Audrey 2owther,
residing a few miles south of this
city, and Mr. Bert A. Root of Mur
ray. The wedding was rather unex
pected by the friends of the contract
ing parties, as it was not hinted that
the two young people expected to
become as one when they departed
for Omaha. They will enjoy a shor
honeymoon in Deuel county at the
home of the groom's parents, and will
then return to this county, to reside
at Murray, where the groom has a
position with W. W. Hamilton as a
carpenter. The bride is the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Lowther and
