The wise man, and the successful man, invariably is
very careful in the selection "of his bank and his doctor.
Me 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.

Will Give Thanksgiving Service
Arrangements have been completed
for the giving of a Thanksgiving
service which will include a pro
gram consisting of music, songs, made
up of solos, duets and chorus sing
ing, with readings and addresses.
This w ill be under the auspices of the
Evangelical Association and will be
held in their church In Murdock on

Which Will Be the Line
Pertinent to the installation- of
the, electric light service In Mur
dock, which Is assured at thi time,
the question arises as to what route
the line -will traverse from the junc
tion, of the Louisville-Weeping Wa
ter line, to Murdock. The shortest
line 1.4 on the road north of Murdock
and while this is true and many have
evinced a desire for service, there are
still more on the line south, but
which as it is longer, will cost more
to construct. With the competi
tion strong the south line which tra
verses the state highway, may win
out by a little extra work. The
amount of subscriptions at this time
has not ent irely Justified the project
in piloting the line to that road, but
It is hoped by those now interested
that others will be interested and
that the line will be located on that
road, but more work will have to be
done and at once to insure the line
Will Open a Restaurant.
Mr. A. Peters, the man who will
have charge of the constructing of
the new electric line into Murdock,
on account of the absense of an eat
ing house of a public nature, will
open a restaurant, probably in the
Fanners building, and will hire a
couple of cooks, preferrably a man
and wife, to care for it and will serve
the meals to the workmen while the
line is under construction.
Attended the Bankers Association
H. A. Guthman of the Dank of
Murdock. was attending the state
bankers association which convened
in Lincoln last week, remaining dur
ing the session and meeting many of
the banking fraternity with whom
he was acquainted and with the ex
change of views was able to return
to his work here better equipped for
the work of serving the commun
ity than before. It would seem that
one could hardly be better equipped
for the best service of the public
than this bank with its two hard
workers for the benefit of the people
of the community.
Heard Great Music.
Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Tool were in
Lin-oln last Tuesday where they at
tended the concert given by the great
"Sousa'3 Band" an organibation of
world renown, and who only give ex
hibitions in the larger cities of the
country. Mr. and Mrs. Tool were
well pleased with the rendition which
was given by this aggregation.
Children Had a Great Time
The young people of the Murdock
high school held a hard time social
at the high school building last
Thursday evening as a fitting close
to the Armistice day celebration that
was participated in by the schools
during the afternoon, when a patri
otic program was presented. The
program consisted of recitals, read
ings and songs, in which all Joined
with enthusiasm and made the day
one long to be remembered. Many
and varied costumes were worn to
the social in the evening and all In
attendance had a mighty good time.
Neighbors Enjoy Meeting
The members of the Koyal Neigh
bors of America enjoyed a pleasant
afternoon at the home of Mrs. W. H.
Rusk last Tuesday afternoon, when
they met in regular session to look
after the business of the society and
to enjoy the sociability of the occa
sion. After the business had been
disposed of. the ladies plied their
needles busily while social conversa
tion held eway. Near the close of
the afternoon the hostess provided a
delicious luncheon which heightened
the pleasure of the occasion.
Many People Have Measles
There seems to be an epidemic of
measles that has been going the
rounds of this vicinity during the
past few weeks, but while many have
been extremely sick the patients all
seem to be getting along nicely at
the present time. At the home of
Ray Boldan, the entire family was
sick at the same time, with the ex
ception of Ray. Mrs. Boldan, who is
not very rugged, had the worst siege
with the malady, but is now on the
road to recovery. Two of the child
ren are still broken out.
Bobbie Stock was sick the past
week with the disease but is better,
as is Miss Bernie McCrorey, who was
confined to her bed with them.
Celebrated First Anniversary
Last Saturday Mrs. C. Moomey
returned home from Byrne. Kansas,
where she had been visiting at the
i nm o rf Vi or Hancliter 'fr TTnmer
Hess, and incidentally, attended the
"elebration of the first birth anniver
sary of her grandson. Master Edgar
Hess, whose birthday occurred on
October 7th. The visit was one of
much pleasure, both for Mrs. Moom
ey and her daughter's family.
Secures a Good Man
The Village board has secured the
services of Mr. A. Peters, an experi
enced and efficient lineman to con
struct the new electric light line
leading from Manley to Murdock.
Mr. Peters has just completed lines
running from Louisville to Weeping
Water and from Louisville to South
Bend. He has established his office
in the small building Just south of
the Bank of Murdock, where he will
maintain headquarters during the
time that the line is being built. He
Is hopeful of having the street lights

INTERNAL REVENUE BUREAU
CLAMPS LID ON SALE OF
MALT AND HOPS.
Washington. D. C, Nov. 12. The
internal revenue bureau in formal
statements today . confirmed reports
that a crusade against home-brewing
of alcoholic beverages is planned by
the government's prohibition en
forcement agencies. The bureau did
not reveal, however, the means it
proposed to employ in the campaign
nor admit that it had approved pre
liminary instructions by Prohibition
Commissioner Kramer directing that
sales of malt and hops be restricted
to bankers and confectioners.
"If malt extract, hops, isinglass.
gelatine or other materials are sold
or advertised for sale for use in the
unlawful manufacture of intoxicat
ing liquor," said a statement Issued
tonight by Commissioner Williams
of the internal reverue bureau, "it
is the purpose of the bureau to pros
ecute persons so offending.
"The so-called home brew beer
manufactured in the home for bev
erage purposes, even though for the
sole use of the family and bona fide
guests is, under the bureau's con
struction of the law. illegal, and the
sale of materials for such manufac
ture is likewise illegal."
Mr. Kramer was still absent from
the city tonight, and no authorita
tive statement of the nature of such
instructions as he has already is
sued in the anti-home brew cam
paign was obtainable. The state
ment of the federal prohibition di
rector of Ohio, however, that he
had received instructions from Mr.
Kramer to prevent sales of malt and
hops except to bakers and to confec
tioners has not been denied by the
internal revenue bureau, although it
is understood that Commissioner
Williams has not as yet approved
these specific orders.
There was an apparent difference
of opinion between officials of the
bureau of internal revenue and Com
missioner Kramer's staff of advisers
as to the powers granted under the
Volstead act with respect to prohib
iting the sale of articles employed
in the manufacture of beer at home.
Commissioner Williams conferred
during the day with aides familiar
with the act, and this was followed
by numerous other conferences in
the bureau, the nature of which was

Abundant Cause for Gratitude
Washington. Nov. 12. President
Wilson issued his Thanksgiving proc
lamation tonight, saying that "in
plenty, .security and peace, our vir
tuous and self-reliant people face the
future," and setting aside Thursday,
November 25, for the usual obser
vances, he text follows:
"The season approaches when it
behooves us to turn from the dis
tractions anil preoccupations of our
daily life, that we may contemplate
the mercies which have been vouch
safed to us and render heartfelt and
unfeigned thanks unto God for his
"This is an old observance of the
American people, deeply imbedded
in our thoughts and habits. The
burdens and the stresses of life have
their own insistence.
"We have abundant cause for
thanksgiving. The lessons of 'the
war are rapidly healing. The great
army of free men, which America
sent to the defense of liberty, return
ing to the grateful embrace of the
nation, has resumed the useful pur
suits of peace as simply and as
promptly as it rushed to arms in
obedience to the country's call. The
equal justice of our laws has received
steady vindication in the support of
a law-abiding people against various
and sinister attacks which have re
flected only the baser agitations of
war, now happily passing.
"In plenty, security and peace, our
virtuous and self-reliant people face
the future, its duties and its appor
tunities. May we have vision to dis
cern our duties; the strength, both
of hand and resolve, to discharge
them, and the soundness of heart to
realize that truest opportunities are
those of service.
"In a spirit, then, of devotion and
stewardship we should give thanks
in our hearts and dedicate ourselves
to the service of God's merciful and
loving purposes to his children.
"Wherefore, I, Woodrow Wilson,
president of the United Sljates of
America, do hereby designate Thurs
day, the twenty-fifth day of Novem
ber next, as a day of thanksgiving
and prayer, and I call upon my coun
trymen to cease from their ordinary
tasks and avocations upon that day.

HARDING'S PLAN IS
By South American League Delegate ,
Now m Pans, Says Killing
Pact is Dangerous.
Paris, Nov. 12. Suggestions from
the United States that the present
league of nations should be super-
seded by another world body are not '
likely to be met with approval by
the assembly of the leagun at Ge-j
neva, in the view of Ir. Mariano
Cornejo, head of the Peruvian dele
gation to tho assembly as expressed
in an interview in L'Eclair todaj.
Although President-elect Harding
has spoken of the "decease" of the
league, he might be mistaken. Dr.
Cornejo said. To wish to kill a
building organization, he continued,
in order to create another appeared
to him a dangerous and childish
proceeding, even though the people
of the United States may have voted
rejection of the league plan.
"The Peruvian and Bolivian gov
