Are Entering; Transfer Business
Clarence Heebiur and Alfred An
derson of Xehawka have entered in
to the transfer business, making the
j purchase of a Patriot truck through
j the firm cf St. John & Cunningham
; and going to Lincoln where they re
i ceived the truck from the Hebb Mot
j or Co., driving it to their home in
! Xeliawka. The two young gentle
men started ia on their work Fri
day morning, having a weeks' work
ahead of them on the initial day.
They will do a general, trucking
business, hauling cattle for the
farmers to any of the nearby mar
kets av.d will endeavor to arrange
for ieturn leads in order that it may
become a paying institution from
"oF salt," A. J. Bauers, shall have
the honor of being the first cap
tain, while Harry Gillispic is slated
for first mate, Lacey McDonald for
second mate, with no one as yet
to claim the honor of bos'n. The
boat is to be launched in the early
spring when the daffodils are in
bloom. We are mistaken if, before
the summer has faded into autumn,
that the captain, Mr. Bauers, will
not think that iomc one has wished
on him' the position of a galley slave
if he has to furnish the propelling
power for the craft.
