Murdock Gets Three Banners
At the state convention of the
Evangelical association held in Lin
coln, the church at Murdock was
successful in capturing three of the
banners hung up for the best work
of various auxiliaries of the church.
The Woman's Missionary society,
which raised something over $2,000,
received a banner for that. The
Young People's association raised
$S40. and for this took the banner
in their class. Then along came the
Message Bearers with a report of
having raised $160, which captured
the banner for their society.
Now it was not just luck that th'
banners all came to Murdock, for it
took work and it took cash to swing
the awards this way. They say
"money talks," and it certainly done
its share of holloring for Murdock.
In all a total of some $3,000 was
raised by the different auxiliaries
during the year and the church is
to be congratulated on having such
willing workers and generous givers.
In this connection it might be well
to mention that a collection box is
maintained at the Bauer store, for
the relief of starving babies of for
eign lands, including all countries
of Europe. One cent will provide
food for a baby one day. How many
can you afford to feed daily?
Hackessack, N. J., Sept. 17.
Identity of the blacksmith who shod
the horse found dead near the scene
of yesterday's explosion In New
York's financial district, is known to
the depirtment of Justice, according
to a statement made here tonight by
William Al. Mead, chief clerk in the
office of J. P. Morgan and company.
This blacksmith he added, claims to
know the man who owned the ani
mal. "We feel that the plot was premed
itated", declared Mr. Mead, "and
that a deliberate attempt was made to
destroy the building of J. P. Morgan
and company and to kill and injure
as many people as possible. The
most likely story of the explosion is
that a red wagon drawn by a horse
stopped at the left side of the curb
facing east on Wall street and direct
ly opposite the nter of the Morgan
building. Aman most likely then
set a large bomb enclosed in the wa
gon to erplode at 12 noon and the
"We have found parts of the wa
gon and shoes of the horse. These
shoes are expected to aid in solving
the mystery of the tragedy for we
have found the blacksmith who shod
the horse and who claims to know
the man who owns the animal.
"A peculiar incident of the whole
affar, is that a letter was received
on the fifteenth, the day before the
explosion, warning everyone to stay
away from Wall street between 2 and
3 o'clock on the sixteenth. This let
ter came from Buffalo and was sent
by a lawyer who was believed to have
been in the employ of a prominent
is here and you will be compelledd to
live inside. You will enjoy a tasisfully
decorated home the more. The rush of

LTurdocl: Schools Well Attended
The students attending the Mur
dock schools now total near the one
hundred mark and a. little later the
enrollment will doubtless be further
increased. With the opening of
school last Monday. 27 were enroll
ed in the high school. 2G in the
grammar grades, 20 in the interme
diate department and 20 in the pri
mary classes, making a total of 93,
with some, ten or more yet to come.
The successful consolidation of the
schools here is making it possible to
have bc-'.ter educational advantages
and afford opportunity for students
to g?t a high schol education without
having to go away from home for
if, and that at a minimum of expense.
