'$-t-X A Service message It's Good 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 in Plattsmouth. If you get local prices every time on your intended purchase. you'll find yourself trading at home.

FEOPLE URGED TO CONSERVE Use of Fuel Should Only be in Case of Necessity Light and Pow er the Same V.'av. 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 nation are facing the proposition of freezing. 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 tion. 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.
