MAKES GREAT HIT
The Bank of dHurdock
The wise man, and the successful man, invariably is"
very careful in the selection of his bank and his doctor.
He knows that his life may depend on the judgment and
ability of his doctor. He fully realizes that the life and
success of his business, be it professional, merchandising
or farming, may depend on his banker.
There is no question but that we shall pass through
an adjustment period, bordering on a panic, within the
next few years, present conditions foreshow this, and the
man who has not already tied up with an established, re
liable bank a bank whose officers have successfully with
stood times of stress, may shortly regret his lack of judg
ment. Select a bank that is able to take care of you in
times of plenty, as well as in times of famine, and you can
then rest easy. Remember the solid, dependable things
of life are not based on promises, but on deeds. Our past
record is what counts.
We have the above necessary qualities to offer our
customers, besides personal services whenever our opinion
is desired on business or personal matters of our friends.
All deposits in this bank is guaranteed by the depos
itors guaranty fund of the State of Nebraska.

A number of the farno rs near Mur
dock have found that much of the
wheat is cut off andespecia lly on the

or two under the ground. The com

The Matter of Election.
The election which is to be held
on November 2, is a matter of some
concern to the election board, as
there are for their use only five elec
tion booths and as there is now es
timated to be over 400 voters for this
precinct, with the women now vot
ing. This will make some 80 votes
for each booth. Giving ten minutes
for each voter to make their ballot it
will take ten hours continual vot
ing for the entire number to get
.their work done. The board has
made request that those who live in
town, to vote during the morning,
as this will leave the afternoon for
others, tut who ever is in town dur
ing the morning it is desired that
they vote as rapidly as possible, in
order that all may have an oppor
tunity to get their ballot in before
the closing of the poles.

ter things which would make more
life and business in the town and they

Electric Lights look More Surs
The electric light question which
has been considered by the people
of Murdock for some time, with every
slen seems to be getting near a reali
zation than it has before. Last Mon
day a committee sent by the city
board. consisting of August Panska,
Harry V. McDonald and J. E. Mr
Hugh went to the county seat where
they consulted with the county at
torney regarding the best manner of
proceedure to secure the funds neces
sary by a bond election. After the
consultation he committee returned
and proceed?'! to call an election for
November ?.. when they will vote to
issue some $8,000 for the purpose of
securing the electric lights for Mur
dock. There is still a considerable
work to go through, but with the
exercise of care which will be done,
the end is nearer than it has been
heretofore. That the city may have
the much needed and desired service
is a fact which they are to be con
gratulated upon, after having over
come so many difficulties.

Fort Wayne. Ind.. Oct. 14. At
tack on the league of nations policy
of Senator Harding and of former
President Taft w-as continued today
by Governor Cox in another strenu
ous day's campaigning in Indiana.
That there was a conspiracy to de
ceive the American jury by depriv
ing it of the facts in this great case
through failure to print the league
covenant in "reactionary" papers
and in the republican national cam
paign book, also was stressed by the
candidate. He issued a statement
calling upon the league supporters
to raise a fund for printing and dis
tributing the covenant.
i Governor Oox addressed, crowds
aggregating many thousands at Del
phi. Loansport, Peru. Wabash. Hunt
ington and here, where he closed
with a street meeting tonight. At
most of the cities today the gov
ernor spoke from especially built
stands on court house squares. Win
dows and ledges of the court house
and adjacent buildings were filled
with spectators. At Logansport the
candidate spoke to a large crowd on
a corner lot.
"These great crowds." the gover
nor said to one of his audiences, "tell
me that the soul of Indiana is
Regarding the stand of Senator
Harding and Judge Taft" on the
league, Governor Cox repeated the
charge that the senator was "vacil
lating" and declared that the repub
lican candidate's recent Marion
statement was his eleventh change
of position. '
"Poor Judge Taft," the governor
continued, "tries to apologize for him
(Senator Harding) and tries to de
fend him. hut he moves so fast that
Taft can't keep up with him."
' The governor said that there was
a great tidal wave oT sentiment
sweeping America for .the league,
and declared that America was
aroused." He said many republicans
forsook Senator Harding when he
disapproved the league at Des Moines.
At Delphi the candidate -reiterated
there was a conspiracy to change
the federal reserve act and that "big
business was opposing him in every
state and in every county."
An advertising display which has
attracted unusual interest, has been
placed in the show window of F. G.
Fricke & Co.. the South Sixth street
druggists in this city, who are local
agents for the well-known and high
ly successful proprietary medicine,
The. display is not only interesting
from an advertising standpoint, but,
is educational, combining in an at-1
tractive and artistic manner beauti-j
ful scenes from many foreign conn-1
tries where the ingredients of this ,
preparation are obtained. I
It has occasioned such favorable '
comment in the city that the pro-i
prietors of the store state that it will j
remain in ineir winaow several nays
Work of Great Artist
The display is the work of one of
America's greatest lithographic ar
tists and the manufacturers of Tan
lac state that the total cost will ex
ceed sixty thousand dollars, which
is said to be a record price for win
dow displays. It is in ten distinct
and natural colors and presents
scenes from the Rocky mountains, as
well as from Europe, Asia, Peru,
Egypt, and other foreign countries.
The natives are seen in their nat
ural habitat and environment, gath
ering the roots, herbs and barks that
form the medicinal ingredients of
Tanlac, packing them upon the backs
of camels, elephants, llamas and
other beasts of burden for transpor
tation by land and sea to the im
mense laboratories at Dayton, Ohio,
and Walkerville, Canada.
One of the most striking features
of the display is the reproduction of
the magnificent laboratory at Day
ton. Here the artist has very effec
tively and impressively portrayed the
popularity of Tanlac by introducing
a group of people in all walks of life,
who are looking at the Tanlac labora
tory with expressions of confidence,
plainly indicating their belief and
faith in the medicine.
Another distinctive feature is the
bulletins accompanying the display.
They tell briefly and concisely of the
marvelous growth and development
of Tanlac, until today it has the
largest sale of any medicine of its
kind in the world. These bulletins
also nuote various standard medical
authorities as to the therapeutic
value and physiological effect of the
60,000 Bottles a Day
' From these bulletins one also
learns that the new Tanlac labora
tories at Dayton and Walkerville
have a combined daily capacity of
60.000 bottles and that the medicine
is now selling at the rate of approxi
mately 10.000.000 bottles per year.
That Tanlac is a preparation of
exceptional merit has never been dis
puted, which accounts for its tre
mendous popularity and large sales
throughout the country. It is a
powerful reconstructive tonic and
body-builder and has a far reaching
and most beneficial effect upon the
entire system. Many strong local
Vndorr.oiaontr-. from those who testify
as to the benefit they received, have
appeared in the columns of this
The manufacturers of Tanlac are
firm believers in newspaper adver
tising and have forcibly presented to
the public the merits of their pro
ducts in this way. Their total an
nual appropriation for newspaper
r.pace exceeds one million dollars.
Their copy appears in practically all
the leading daily and weekly news

Grip usually starts just the same
as a cold with a watery discharge
from the nose. You are much more
likely to contract the grip, when you
have a cold. For that reason when
grip is prevalent you should go to
bed as son as you feel that you are
taking cold and stay in bed until
fully recovered, which should not be
long if you take Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. Three days in bed now is
better than three weeks later on.
