him on his birthday which occurred
last Saturday and with the prepara
tions for one of the best of times
they appeared at his home as the
shades of evening were falling and
turned lys quiet home into a scene of
merriment, such as was very unex
pected to Mr. Hild. There were
good things to eat, carefully tucked
away in the bodies of the touring
cars which made, when the time ar
rived, a spread fit for a king. A
most sociable time was had and on
the departure of the guests they all
wished Mr. Fred Hild a prosperous
journey through life, and many more
such friendship demonstrations. To
Phillip Hild also was extended the
Fame manifestations of friendship.

Makes Purchase of Essex Car
Last Monday L. H. Puis of the
Murray garage and Mr. Glen Perryv
living north of Murray, went to Om-'
aha where they selected a new Essex
car for Mr. Perry. The one select
ed was one of particular beauty and
a car which will make one of the
most serviceable that can be bought.
Mr. Puis is making a specialty of
these cars and meeting with a good
demand for them, as well might be
expected from the excellence of the
cars, also he is able to make very
prompt deliveries which is an added
feature in the handling of a car. Mr.
Perry exercised good judgment in
the selection of the Essex as it is a
car which has demonstrated its ex
ceptional qualities in the perform
ances which it has made at all com
pedative contests as well as the ser
vice it is giving thousands of owners.
Ear of Corn 13 Inches Long
W. C. Gilniore come in with an ear
of corn which was grown on the place
of Mrs. J. A. Walker which measured
13 inches in length and is perfectly
filled. With ears of this size it
would not be difficult to get an extra
large yield. Any way Mr. Gilmore
knows just how to raise corn and
he has the right farm on which to
grow good corn. Now let the next
man come along with something bet
ter if he can produce it.
Delighted With Arrival
Dr. J. F. Brendel has to report
the arrival at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Grover Hopkins of a son and
heir, who was greeted with the most
delighted reception and if there is
a happy home in Cass county it is the
one where Grover Hopkins and wife
live. They have awaited the arrival
of this young American and were
more than delighted when he came
bringing a happy smile and good
cheer for the household. Mr. Hop
kins was stiil wearing a smile and
promises that it will not wear off.
We are hoping that the young man
may add comfort and solice to the
parents as the years roll by.

This Sure Was Some Game
The young men of ball playing
inclinations, residing east of Murray,
have organized two teams, one known
as the Rock Bluffs team and the oth
er as the Kenosha team. They ar
ranged last Sunday to play on the
grounds owned by Captain Harrison
Gayer, and while Earl Hutchison
looked after the management of the
Rock Bluffers, Fred Neal did the
same for the team from Kenosha.
The game was an exciting one from
start to finish and no one could say
that he had spent his time in vain
watching the boys roll up the runs,
r.s they were very unsuccessful dur
ing the first eight innings. An then,
when it looked like the game might
have to be prolonged into the night
in order to determine the winners,
the Kenoshaites came to bat and
made a dash for victory, being suc
cessful in getting some twenty-one
runs, and felt rather safe as pennant
winners. But the Rock Bluffers
would listen to no such noise, and
in their inning piled up some twenty-two
runs before they could be
