A Service message
It's merely good business judgment on your part, to consult
your local merchants in purchasing goods. Get their prices on
articles listed by mail-order houses.
Many people who buy from catalog houses find out after
wards that they could have purchased more cheaply right here
If you get local prices every time on your intended purchase.
you'll find yourself trading at home.

From Wefinesda y s pai!y.
The citizens of Plattsuumt h are to
feel the full tffect.-o! the great men
ace that is now confronting the- peo
ple of ihe nation w Ink the coal min
ers remain idle and the million- f
the men. women and children of Do

The local coal dealers have so far
been able to supply he demands
made by the public but th- amounts
on hand are uncertain and it will be
necessary that they be handled in
such a manner as To e;iow th- great
est number to secure coal as is ; os-i-ble.
One of the greatest problems that
confronts the people of the city is
that of electric ligTit and power
which is supplied by the Nebra-ka
Gas and Electric Co. The company
has been securing their supply of
current from Omaha in the past and
are at present getting soric from
that city but the condition of th.- fin I
supply there is such as to make un
certain whether or not the company
there can continue their service.
The coal supply htre In possession
of the light plant is from five to c;x
days running, and has been carefully
conserved by Manager Ku ken Jail in
hopes that it might perrn't the plant
to operate even in ca-- of a shut
down of the Omaha plant. Coal has
been ordered by the local plant from
the west and as the mines of Color
ado and Wyoming are said to be op
erating on a 90 per cent basis it may
be possible to secure additional sup
plies but this depends on the greater
needs of other points as the govern
ment must distribute the small sup
ply of coal in as equal a manner as
possible to prevent suffering and
i hardship among the people of the na
The situation at the best is where
every precaution should be taken in
the care of fuel atic the savins cf
light and power by the people of th"
community in order To help save the
badly needed coal supply of the state.
