for the safety or welfare of his

Speaks Well For Murray.
Last Sunday the Rev. Mitchell of
Red Oak. la., was in Murray and held
services at the Presbyterian church,
coming because he had heard of the
excellent community spirit which has
been obtained in this community.
He was coming with the purpose, it
suited, of making his home in Mur
ray. He had in mind from whtrt he
had heard that this was a community
church and was coming for that pur
pose, as he thought there would be
nn excellent field in which to work.
The members of the church thought
he was coming as a Presbyterian
and were expecting to secure him
if possible. He proved a very able
men. but on account of the misunder
standing could not be secured. We
have never been very tenacious for
any sectarion or denominational
church. They are all good and it
seems like one community church
with the broad minded people would
be plenty and those that could be
supported and made a very great suc
cess. People think about this mat
ter. It is fellowship, it is Christian
ity and the best of practice for the
entire community. .
Was a Great Success.
The ladies of the Presbyterian
church who held a bazaar at their
church parlors last Saturday after
noon and evening, were very success-
I ful with their entertainment which
netted them some two hundred and
thirty dollars, besides having a very
Celebrated Birthday Friday.
The friends of Miss Blanche Scot
ten gathered at her home last Friday
evening and made the evening merry
by the celebration of her lifteentli
birthday. There was a large crowd
and a very pleasant evening was
spent. They had music and played
games such as delight the young
folks and were seryed with delicate
refreshments which added to the joy
of the occasion. Those to enjoy and
assist in the evenings pleasure were:
Misses Leona Farrls. Mable Howard,
Hazel Davis. Flora Wiekhara, Marie,
and Elsie Puis, and Miss Blancho

Feeding Many Cattle. -Harry
Todd is feeding some three
hundred cattle at the farm south of
Murray which he will return to the
market when they are in condition.
I'ncle J. W. Edmonds is making some
twenty feeders for the feeding of t in
grain and other concentrated foods,
and is doing an excellent job of the
work. Mr. Edmonds is a workman
who is not ashamed of the work he
puts out and when the contract is
completed Mr. Todd will have a very
convenient way of feeding the cattie
and will also save much of the food
which otherwise would go to waste.
Making the Hens Lay.
We believe in the best of chickens
and the pure bred ones at that. Rut
they will not lay for some time just
after they have been moved from one
place to another, without some en
couragement. Not so long ago two
ladies of Murray became intensely
interested in a certain strain of the
domestic chick and secured twenty
five each. They were petted and cod
dled, and fed the best of food, and
given Dr. Hezekiah Hemmingway"s
egg producer, but to no effect. Their
husbands were disappointed "as well
as the wives, but they could not see
the women folks grieving and get
ting no eggs' with Christmas coming
on very rapidly. They endeavored
to purchase some eggs in the open
market, but found no offers and were
at their wits end when one of the
swains found a basket in the cellar
with eggs packed in oats fen- keeping
against just such ill luck as was
coming their way. He slipped the
eggs out and placed them in the
nests where the chickens frequented
and the "Missus" who had been
making trips to the hennery every
21' minutes, one her eighth trip that
morning found two eggs in one nest
and five in another. You should
have heard the telephone jingle then
and let the other lady know that
"we have gotten seven eggs today.
The hens have started to lay in ear
nest." There was happiness in the
home for that day. but the next day
the discovery was made of the eggs
gone from the cellar. Now somf
one is trying to play even, and they
