The Bank
The wise man, and the successful man. invariably is
very careful in the selection of his bank and his doctor.
He knows that; bis 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.

Murdock to the Fore.
Last Wednesday at the election in
Murdock for the issuance of bonds
for obtaining for Murdock an electric
lighting system, the people with one
accord, took the proper view of the
situation and carried the election by
a three-fourths vote. The ballots on
being counted showed that three had
voted for the proposition of issuing
the bonds while one had voted against
the proposition. The. vote stood 22
against and 86 for the advanced step.
With the coming of the electric
lights will also come other improve
ments, which will make the town bet
ter. The next step which will be
for the betterment of the town will
be the erection of a school building
commensurate with the needs of the
district. This building can be easily
constructed by the wealth of the dis
trict, which is one of the richest of
the rural districts and the building
will be a benefit to the whole com
munity as well as to the city proper.
Another thing which is needed by
the community is a hotel commen
surate with the needs of the city.
The business which has been con
ducted by Mr. and Mrs. W. O. Gilles
pie, has been a good one. and they
have been very accommodating and
looked after the traveling public as
well as possible under the circum
stances. With the quitting of the
business by them. Murdock is left
without a public eating place.
A move to organize a company
and construct a hotel in Murdock
should be vne of the first moves which
the men of money should do. The
venture should pay in dollars and
cents as well as be a move in the
direction of securing for the town
adequate facilities for the caring for
the traveling public as well as pro
viding a place for the people of Mur
dock to board.
Land for the purpose of a hotel
site can be had at a very reasonable
figure and at a location that will
make the best place in town for t lie

Deeply Wounded Because a Christian
Filipino Disregarded the Sanctity cf
the Harem and Eloped With the
Sultan's Sixth Wife Jealousy cf
Newcomer Caused Queen to Bestow
Her Affection Elsewhere.
Like Achilles at tbe siege of Troy,
though for quite another reason. H-
niaJiil Kirn in, sultan of Sulu, sulks In
his tent in Rorneo. His life is blighte.!.
temporarily at least, and his sultani?
pride is deeply wounded, all because a
Christian Filipino, Fernadez, chief cf
police of .Tolo, disregarded the snnctlt
of the sultan's harem by running o.T
with Ids sixth wife, the favorite Tabay.
The elopers are now honeymooning i;i ;
Zaiiiboanga, beyond reach of Kiram's i
Ire. although It is Mohammedan t'erri-
torj and the most important city in
the sultan's religious domain, the
Lit era rv Digest states. In 101.", a
treaty was made with the sultan In
which he renounced his claim to secu
lar sovereignty in the Philippine archi
pelago, and recognized 1Jie supreme
authority in secular matters of the In
sular government. So Tabay forgets
her late lord and master, and smiles
into the eyes of the gallant policeman. .
Roy C Dennett, staff correspondent of
the Japan Advertiser (Tokln). writing
from Manila, tells the story of the sul
tan's bereavement. In 191.", KIram, in
continuing to maintain a numerous
harem, became a bigamist, leading wPh
him in bigamv many datfos who frtllow
the old Mohammedan custom and the
example of their sultan as well as the
teaching of the Koran, nnd live In
polygamous wedlock. The government
bns never attempted to uppres the
hn reins, but hns depended on the
phMie schools to wean the younger
generation from the old idea that one
spouse is not sufficient. The sultnn
managed to steer a middle course In
the affection of lite wives until he took
unto himself a seventh partner to
shnre his joys and sorrows. Thea
things began to happen. Taking xrf
the story, as related in the Japan Ad
vertiser (Tokio);
Flirted With a Christian.
When Tabay, described as a splendid
fem.-ile creature, full of fire and spirit,
found herself gradually being sup
planted in the affections of the sultnn
a Samson whV in signing the fatal
treaty, hr.d cut his own hair she
stood upon lier womanly righf.s, made
love (and to a Christian, too. Allah
save the mark!) In a womanly wny.
.nd set the eunuchs quite at naught
r.nd the poor, aggrieved sultsn quite
In s'lltnnie consternation.
And so he went to P.orneo, instead
of. as in the good old days, going to
his chief eunuch and ordering Tabay
and his chief of police killed. At
Snudakan. Rorneo, the sultan of Sulu
has a palace and lands and an annual
irrnnt from the government of Great
P.rit.iin. He has many Mohammedan
subjects there, and Is received as a
monarch by the r.ritish authorities.
The same obeisance and tribute are
paid to him at Singapore. Like a
prophet of old. he Is not without honor
save In his own country; for he is a
Filipino and until a few years ago hte
mere word was absolute law to the
million Filipino Mohammedans in Jolo
and Mindanao.
Now he cannot take a seventh wife
unto his bosom without a policeman
running off with the sixth! Flow have
the mighty fallen !
"Fernandez," the sad story from .7Io
reads, "because of his official position
frequented the sultan's palace, know
ing there, as few did, even among
Mohammedans, the numbers of the sul
tan's retinue and harem, particularly
Tabay, to whose charms he Immediate
ly succumbed. Tabay returned his
affection. The love profane, accord
ing to the Koran of Tabay and Fer
nandez came to the knowledge of the
watchful eunuchs.
"Hamnlul KIram, nobly bred and
noble monarch, notwltbsanding he was
the supreme ecclesiastical authority In
Sulu. controlled his Indignation first,
because he alone was injured, nnd.
second, because Fernandez was a
Christian. The civil authorities of
Jolo decided to discharge Fernandez,
but Fernandez preferred to resign hte
office. A few days later Fernandez
nnd Tabay, in a frail vlnta (Moro
sailing vessel) set out from Jolo for
Zamboanga. leaving the old sultan, the
old harem and the old times behind
"Tabay, a gentle and royal woman,
until a few months ago was queen of
Hamalul Kirnm's harem. Her manner
and beauty are seductive; she never

favor and affection.

So the tale In romantic Spanish
runs on. The upshot of the whole mat
