A MERRY CHRISTMAS
AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
Mindful of Past Accomplishments
Let Us All WoTk Together
for Future Results.
We were always safe in saying
that Murray is one of the best little
towns of its size in Nebraska and
doubly so since the strides of the
past few years. The city has really
hustled. Electric liehts. a wide
awake commercial club and live citi
zens are among the numerous assets
the town may well boast of.
It is a genuine pleasure to work
with such a co-operative lot of busi
ness men and citizens generally and
although we have been publishing a
Murray department in the Journal
for a good number of years past, nev-
matteri'' have our efforts met with more
i encouragement or our enterprise been
Season of Good Cheer!
We are all feeling the prosperity that has
been so graciously accorded us in this com
munity where it is a real pleasure to dwell
and to do business.
Just now we are exceedingly grateful for
the many kindnesses of friends and without
which we couldn't have succeeded as we have.
Please accept, therefore, our sincere thanks
and wishes of a Merry Christmas and Happy
New I ear to one and all.

and from the results already brought
about, are assured there is promise
of accomplishing still more through
the medium of sticking .together.
Murray merchants and business
men have always been generous in
their support of our efforts to give
Ihem the next best thing to a news
paper of their own and such a pro
ject is too expensive an undertaking:
for the support .that could be had.
even with the merchants spending
money almost gratituously in order
to keep such a paper alive.
Your interests have been our in
terest and we have tried at all
times to work with you for the com-
ood of both. May we ever con
so to do.
And while expressing gratification
for this friendly spirit and helpful
demeanor we wish to express our
sincere wishes thai the people of
Murray and all the surrounding ter
ritory may enjoy a most Merry Xmas
and a Happy and Prosperous New
To the many friends:
Who by their patronage and friendliness, have contrib
uted to make my business successful and my residence
here pleasant, I wish to extend best wishes for a Merry
Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.

Takes Advantage of Price
Knowing full well of the contem
plated advance in the price of the
Velie automobile. which now sells
for Sl.SlKt. but which after the first
of January will cost more money, P.
A. Hild purchased a new li20 model
from th" Puis Garage this week and
iias the new car now as a Christmas
present. And with foresight did he
make the purchase, as after tLe 1st
of the year another hundred dollars
will be tacked onto the price.
Mr. Puis advises all who are in
the market for a car of this make to
"come a running" as it is only a few
days now until the advance in price
