The county commissioners; at their
session yesterday took up the matter
of the contract for the painting and
decorating of the second floor of the
court house, including the halls, offices
of the clerk, county judge, treasurer,
register of deeds and commissioners,
which have for lo, these many years,
badly needed the touch of the painter's
brush. The contract was let to Frank
R. Gobelman for the sum of $J(JQ. This
will be a long needed improvement at
the court house and one that will go
a long ways toward improving the
interior of the building. The floors
be given the attention of the painters
as well as the counters and desks, and
the whole made neat and attractive
in every was.

well qualified for this position as ffe
has been interested in banking at Clas
Center and Harvard, as well as being
a business man of rare judgment and
a forceful and able man, whose grasp
of public questions well lits him for
the position as member of the law
making bods of the state. This is the
first term of Mr. Murtes and he has
taken held of the situation in earnest
to see that his constituents are looked
after as thes should be. Mr. Murtey
has taken a clear position on the car
shortage question, which has caused
the farmers and grain dealers a great
deal of annoyance, and will be heard
from further on this matter before the

recognition of a most de.-erving gen
tleman and the house has made no
mistake in his selection.
