PLATTSMOUTH SEMI-WEEKLY JOURNAL
The Bank of Rflurdock
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 op 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.

way by S" inches another in cir
cumference. Surely some freak!
We mean the egg.

Weeping Water for the past thirty
nine years, and their friends will
sadly miss them from their accus

the responsibility of a home is too
great a burden to carry, and they de

THE LEAGUE ISSUE.
Whether or not it be a fortunate
provision of nature, the human mind
quickly forgets. Hut a short two
years ago we were in the midst of
a world war. Nearly every family in
this country was harrowed with the
thought that snme onr dear to them
was in imminent danger. There was
the possibility, not alone of loss of
life, tut of seeing that dear one come
home crippled or blinded. And their
fears were well justified.
Never had war taken such a t.!l.
Ten million dead and more than
twice as many wounded? The young
manhood of the world, the hope of
future generations, had gone down
in the struggle.
Men silently swore to themselves
that there should be no more wars.
They held to the hope and belief that
we were fighting the last great war;
that out of the chaos and horrors
wculd come some plan which would
make war unlikely if not impossible.
And such a plan did result from
the war. The league of nations was
not only formulated, but was adopted
by all the great nations cf the earth,
save one the United States of Amer
ica. The representatives of hund
reds of millions of people have signed
the covenant to keep out of each oth
er's territories, to establish a court
for the amicable settlement of dis
putes and to create a commission to
devise a plan for the gradual disarm
ament of the nations.
On the one hand. then, we have
the great nations of the earth bind
ing themsevles and their nple tn a
great peaee plan; on the other, loo.
000,000 people of the United States,
longing for peace and yearning to
lead the world into the paths or
peace and prosperity; an 1 between
them a handful of senators denying
them this right, some of them ani
mated, unconsciously perhaps, by po
litical ambition, other ny persona;
animosities, others trained as lawyers
in hostile analysis but, between
them, taking that great document
and tearing it to pieces.
These men seized upon more or
less trifling points; they enlarged
upon them, they appealed to the self
ishness and fears of people, and fi
nally they beclouded the great issue-,
and behind that cloud defeated the
league of nations. Was there ever
sue ha picture in history? Balti
HOLD HALLOWE'EN SOCIAL
