The local elevators are finding it much easier to secure cars for grain shipment than it has been for some time in the past. As a result deliver ies have more than doubled of late. If given an outlet to market their grain, many farmers would let loose now in order to obtain money to cancel outstanding and past-due in debtedness and this alone would serve to relieve credit tension through the middle west. John Amgwert drove to Lincoln last Thursday. Edward Thimgan was called to Lincoln last Thursday to look after some business matters. Matthew Thimgan was looking af ter some business matters in the county seat Monday, driving over in his car. Louicville and Murdock played ball yesterday, and as both teams are playing good ball, it must have been a good game.

During their trip they enjoyed a visit at the home of Mr. Guthmann's brother, Charles and family at Poise, Idaho, where the br::ci;ig inmate and invigorating ;.t mosphcre afforded them exceeding pleasure. Their arrival home was timed just right for the little ones to get back in school at the opening of the fall term. ers have carried the lyceum propo sition to a successful issue, and no doubt the present management will do likewise, although success is as sured only when the whole commun ity takes hold of the matter. Murdock is a good lyceum town and generally lends its support well to any wholesome entertainment. Finished Seeding His Wheat Louis Bornemeier thinks there is no danger of getting too much of a ! good thing and has seeded 125 acres to wheat this fall. He has been at the job for some time and says both he and the horses are nearly worn out. But they got the wheat in just the same.

They left Thursday for their home in the south, driving a new Veile, which they had secured at the fac tory. Mr. Dierks reports conditions prosperous in the south. UNEARTHED SOME EVIDENCE OF A PLOT Morgan Believes They Have Clue to Supposed Radicals Plot Pre meditated, Mead Declares Will Have Car of Peaches The Murdock Mercantile company announces that it will have a car of I fancy canning peaches on the Rock Island tracks Tuesday, for sale at ! exceptionally low price of $3.50 per 'bushels. These will be the justly ' famed yellow Elbertas, and without i doubt will be quickly gobbled up at j this price. Those who contemplate iriiivinp nprhs for Tannine or nrp- "D ' " " w --' o ' I serving will do well to get in on these before they are all gone. Had Eis Glass Replaced. The plate gir.ss which was broken I in the window at the east side of jthe office room in E. W. Thimgan's p;:rar?. has been replaced by the insurance company, and once more presents as good an appearance as ever. The installation work was done by represontati ves of the West ern Paint and Glass company, of Lincoln. 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 walked away. "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 foreign concern." The Fall Season is here and you will be compelledd to live inside. You will enjoy a tasisfully decorated home the more. The rush of Fall Work is how near and we are booking work Fall season. MARRIED THIS AFTERNOON From Saturday's Dally This afternoon Mr. and Mrs. J.
