We invite our friends who have business in our
hne to take advantage of the exceHent service we are
Ms to render. We have but little to say in our ad
this week as we are very busy with our annual balances
and other things that go to keep the work up in tip-top
pJi.pe. But this need not deter you from coming in,
for we are never so busy but what we have time to
lock after your banking needs.

MURDOCK -:- -:- NEBRASKA
Not Enough Were Interested j
The wrdf In: nt which was pulled j
O'T in this vicinity last week result
ed in the capture of but one lone i
wolf. This was largely due to the ;
fact that not enough men turned out '
for the hunt, to keep up the neces-.
sary line about the territory being
covered, and as a consequence the
southeast and southwest sections of
the territory were weakly supported, j
Doubtless had there been enough ,
hunters to cover the ground numer
ous more of the animals might have
been taken, as several were started,
only to break throush and make
good their escape.
The wolves have been preying up
on chickens and small pies in the
neighborhood for some time past and
it would be a good thing to rid the
neighborhood of them.
The honors of killing the one that
was captured had to be divided be
twien Will Keikinan and Will Vclk,
bh of whom got a : hot a': it.
Last Friday evening as Henry
We.idt was coming from Wabash in
his car. a large wolf hopped across
he road in front of him and sat by
the side of the highway watching
the auto go by. Had Henry been
armed, his wolfship would have un
doubtedly terminated his career of
preying upon the farmers' hen roosts
and pig pens.
