A LIGHTING PLANT
A Plant Lighting Whole City Would
?.? Of M'jrh Bneli. Ard .1
Other cities or towns, having no
more population than Murdock. and
with not more ability to maintain a
plant of this kind, are getting along
with a plant, and enjoying the mat
ter as well. There are enough in
stitutions which would require
lights as well as the number of
res 'de nee s in the city and near
proximity to it that would make the
revcuue sufficient to maintain the
institution. Mr. Edw. "W. Thimgar
who makes lights .for himself
! the business house of Oscar
aldson. has a small lighting plant,
and gives excellent service they hav
ing the best of light. It looks like
I there might something be done to
extend the light service to the whole
j city, and if Mr. ThinigaH is in a
; pcsiiion to lurnisn tnem. tie wouia
he the proper man to install the ser
vice, one of the best of citizens,
wide-awake, and in easiest interest
for the city.
Believes in Raising More Wheat.
That there may be enougl whea
again next year, as well as this, tc
supply the demand, many of the
farmers are keeping up their wheat
acreage, while some are increasing
it. H. A. Guthmann. the Murdock
banker is endeavoring to do his full
I share in the matter of holding up
i the supply and now has men at work
plowing 450 acres of ground which
; is to be seeded to wheat as soon as
the proper time comes for placing
the seed ' in the ground. The land
ilies near the town of Burlington.
' Colorado, where Mr. Guthmann is
interested to a great extend in real
estate holdings, and he is endeavor
ing to make the land pay him a
good return from the wheat yield as
well as aiding in increasing the quan
tity of the leavening berries upon
which the world depends so largely
for its' food supply.

IN THE SOUTHWEST
See Immense Quantities of Wheat
Threshed While They Were
Last week August Pauska, Her
man Kupke and Frank Rosenow
were visitors at Burlington, Colo.,
and being accompanied by August
Kuehn of near Burchard, who is sell
ing lands in the vicinity of Burling
ton. Colorado. The party was great
ly pleased with lands in that por
tion of the country. The wheat
threshing was still in full force and
they were at the farm of Mrs. Eva
Miller of Fremont, where a section.
G40 acres, was being threshed,
which bid fair to make 30 bushels
of wheat to the acre. The returns
; from this land will be getting per
ilously near the forty thousand dol
lar mark, and for lands which but
a short time since sold at $25.00
per acre is doing pretty fair. The
party from Murdock were so well
pleased with the country that Un
acquired some more of it. Mr.
Panska, who already had some lands
there added to his by one hundred
and sixty acres, while Mr. Rosenow,
who had a half section secured an
other half section. Mr. Herman
Kupke who had no holdings there,
purchased a quarter section, and
stands to make some money on the
Both Elevators Filled to Capacity
The two elevators at Murdock are
filled to overflowing with the large
wheat crop of this vicinity and there
is yet a large amount of small grain
awaiting to be delivered, which i
stored in available bins and else
where about the farms of those who
failed to get the crop delivered be
fore the elevators were filled. There
is a scarcity of cars and what grain
there is in the elevators now cannot
be moved until cars are available.
The threshing is practically com-
oleted now, however, and early rc-
'ief mav be looked for.
Returns from Trip in East
Edward W. Thimgan returned a
few days since from Chicago, where
ho has been visiting for some time
with relatives and looking after mat
ters of business as well as taking in
the sights generally. Mr. Thimgan
made the trip to the Windy city on
business principally, but was glad ol
the opportunity of enjoying a little
recreation as well during his stay.
He vr&s a participant in a shooting
tournament while there and won the
first prize in one of the matched
shoots, receiving favorable comment
in the columns of the metropolitan
press for his fine marksmanship as
displayed at this shoot. Mr. Thim
gan is an excellent shot and withal
a fine young man.
Is Larger Farm Than Peportad
In last week's issue ol this paper,
there appeared an article telling of
the sale of a farm belonging to Mr.
Stroy. in which we quoted the num
ber of acres as llGVz. which was as
we understood our informant, but.
the farm is in reality one of 216 Vi
acreB. This brings the price receiv
ed for the farm up to ?1 10,775.00.
This amount looks large,- but it is
doubtless worth the price for It is
one of the best farms in this part of
the country. Today nothing is more
valuable than farm land to farmers
who know how to properly farm it.
while its value is much less to those
who can not properly cultivate it to
get the best returns from the soil.

BUYS R0EBER FARM.
Carl Tonack lias returned from a
land seeking trip to Montana and
also to points in Nebraska without
buying any land and has decided to
remain in Cass county. He has pur
chased the Louis Roeber farm west
of Louisville. This fa'rm contains
160 acres and Mr. Tonack paid $185
per acre. Mr. Roeber bought the
same farm about four years ago of
Charles Jackman for 182.50 per
acre. Mr. Tonack recently sold his
own farm west of town at a good
advance and after looking over the
ground elsewhere, he decided thai
he could do better here than to make
a change. He found land high in
Nebraska and sandy iu ftjaces where
he had contemplated buying and in
Montana it was so dry that the
prospect was not alluring. Mr.
Roeber has bought the Frank
Creamer farm northwest of Mur
dock where he will move his fam
ily in the spring. It is a difficult
matter to keep track of the real
estate that is changing hands as
deals are made rapidly and we no
