To the many readers of the Jour
nal, who are residents of the vicin
ity of Nehawka, as well as others,
we are pleased to announce that In
line with our avowed policy of giv
ing our news service greater scope,
the Journal field man paid a visit to
Nehawka last week and will make
the town each week hereafter in his
rounds for news and business.
During the past more than a year
we have conducted departments from
Murdock. Murray and Union, in an
dition to our regular correspondence
service from towns over the county,
and we will endeavor to make this
new department one worth while to
the readers of our paper.
We want all the live news and
business to justify the service we
are prepared to render. To this end
we will appreciate the kindness of
all who may contribute to the sue-:
cess of the department. j
We are pleased to state that we
have always found Nehawkaites to
be happy, prosperous people and are
glad to chronicle the doings of in
terest to themselves, the community
and our readers scattered over the
country from coast to coast.
While the roads were very bad
on the occasion of our visit to Ne
hawka, a few days since, we found
this thriving little city filled with
people from the surrounding country,
who had come in to look after their
trading, and who are of the "buy-it-at-home"
type rather than the "mail
order type," which flourishes in so
many communities. This speaks
well for the enterprising merchants,
who have made it both pleasant and
profitable to trade at home, and
whose stocks are as fresh and up-to-date
as those of any city emporium.
Sheldon Company Busy
Already evidences of spring are in
the air. The Sheldon Manufacturing
company, which has been shut down
i part of the winter has re-opened
ith a force of eight men who are
busy making hog crates. These, to
gether with the company's far-famed
one-man cement mixers are beig
shipped to purchasers in different
parts of the country. Two car loads
3f the products of this enterprise had
Just gone out and the business for
January is expected to run consider
ably higher than a year ago. The
company looks for a large volume of
jrders during the coming season.
Another Leading Enterprise
Although the Nehawka mills have
:iot been running all the time on ac
count of the bad roads, this Institu
tion is one of the live-wire enter
prises. It is in the hands of an Om
iha company which expects to make
things fairly hum, when the present
temporary depression is over. Few
small towns can boast of a good flour
mill any more, and that is one rea
son why Nehawka people point with
some degree of pride to their's.
Business Changes Hands
The business of the Nehawka auto
company, which has been successful
ly conducted by Messrs. C. D. St.
John and F. R. Cunningham, has
but recently been disposed of by lhem
Lo W. C. Hodges, who is to take full
;harge March 1st. Neither Mr. St.
John or Mr. Cunningham have con
cluded just what they will do after
hat time, but it is safe to say they
will continue to be numbered among
che live-wire Nehawka boosters as
long as they maintain their resi
dence here.
The Nehawka Sank
At the Nehawka Bank we met
Messrs. D. C. West and F. A. Boe
laker, who are genial good fellows
ind well liked by everyone. They
have been conservatively successful
n the conduct of affairs at the bank.
In line with their policy of service
they are offering to assist people of
the community with their income tax
problems. But this is only one of
:he numerous aids they extend and
"hereby bangs the reason of the in
stitution's popularity and prestige.
Sheldon Dept. Store
In this institution we found the
salesladies and salesmen busy as bees
ind selling goods at prices which a
?reat many large town stores are
not meeting. Mr. Frank Sheldon,
the proprietor, is a crank on quality
and does not neglect this important
matter in looking after the interests
of his customers. That's why it has
come to be often said, "If you buy it
it Sheldon's, you may know it's all
right." Another important matter
occupying the attention of the sales
force Just now is the annual "taking
of stock," or inventory as It is com
monly called. In a store of this size,
the task is by no means a small one.
Has Fine Stock of Goods
J. H. Steffins is another merchant
who has a fine stock of goods and
who keeps his store in tip-lop shape
as to arrangement of the stock. Ev
eryone is welcome and one man's
dollar goes as far as another, which
is the limit consistent of course
with sound business practice. Pros
perity is coming to this institution,
and will continue to, so long as Mr.
Steffins sticks to his adage that. "He
prospers most who serves best." C.
R. Heebner has Just accepted a posi
tion in the store and he and Mr.
Steffins make a good team when it
comes to waiting on trade and look
ing after the business.
Up-to-Date Pharmacy
Nehawka's needs In the drug line
are ably looked after by D. D. Adams
and Son, who conduct an up-to-date
pharmacy, and also carry a fine line
of stationery and a well selected stock
of books. They carry a line of mu
sical instruments, having the agency
for the Claxtonola phonograph. Drop
into their place at any time and they
will be pleased to demonstrate the
machine or send one to your home
for comparison.
The Hardware Store
Time was when the "hard" wear
store was more popular than the
hardware establishment of today ever
dare be. But the 18th amendment
has done away with the former,
leaving the latter to enjoy its well
to be held at the Otto Schafer farm, 6 miles west, mile north of Murray, 6
miles east of Manley, 4 miles east and 4 miles north of Weeping Water, and
14 miles southwest of Plattsmouth, on
Tlhiyirsdlay, Feb. 17th, 1921,
-AT 1:30 P. M. SHARP
There are 14 tried sows, 4 fall gilts and 21 spring gilts. 9 are sired by Improved
Pathfinder 2nd; 5 by Great Orion King and the rest of the sows are sired by
such noted boars as O. L. D. Giant, Greatest Orion Sensation, Grand Orion Sen
sation and K. and B. Great Orion Sensation. They are all bred to Improved
Pathfinder 2nd; Great Orion King; Great Orion Sensation, Jr., and Orion Path
finder. 25TThe first prize gilt shown at the County Fair will be sold in the ring, with a
litter by her side, by Orion Pathfinder.
The following prizes were won by us at the Cass County Show: First,
second, third and fourth on six-months-old boar pigs; first, second and third on
six-months-old sow pigs; first on aged boar; first on Junior yearling and Junior
Champion; first on aged sow; first on Senior yearling sow; first on get of sire;
first on produce of dam; first on young herd and first on young herd bred by the
earned popularity. Henry Vtessell,
who came to Nehawka at a time
when it was in its swadling clothes,
is among the oldest business men of
the town and conducts the present-day
popular hardware em
porium. He was with Prank P.
Sheldon in the first business enter
prise opened in Nehawka and knows
the rules of business from A to Z.
With them he has Incorporated his
personality and built up a business
the equal of any found in much
larger towns. One can always be
pretty sure of finding what they
want in his stock and at the right
price, too.
The Nehawka Market
John Odd. the market man. has a
place which Is the equal of those in
cities and is provided with adequate,
facilities to care for all articles de- J
mandlne refrigeration. He carries ;
a line of meats and produce in sea
son which is most complete and han
dles them with care, being ever on
the alert to sell nothing but the
best. His extensive equipment proves
justified in the light of the tremen
dous business he does.
Elevator Handicapped
The Farmers Elevator, which is
conducted by B. O. Tucker is an in
stitution which works for the wel
fare of the farming community as
well as the town. The stock is held
by the farmers and citizens of Ne
hawka and Mr. Tucker is a careful,
conservative hard-working manager,
to whom much credit is due for the
successful conduct of the business.
Like all such Institutions situated on
the Missouri Pacific, the elevator
has been handicapped through diffi
culty in getting cars the past few
years, but Mr. Tucker has hopes they
will be more plentiful i the future.
Grain, Lumber, Implements
A combination that is hard to
beat in a business way is that of j
State Senator A. r . Sturm, who con
ducts a lumber and grain business.
Mr. Sturm was at Lincoln looking
after the passage of legislation and
the good of his constituents, but at
hiB place of business we found Henry
Kropp in charge. Mr. Kropp con
ducts an implement business of his
own, and in the absence of the sen
ator management of the two has
been consolidated. As all are closely
allied the thing works out well. Mr.
Sturm has always done a good lum
ber business and the elevaor takes
in lots of grain when shipping facili
ties and market conditions are right.
Mr. Kropp's line of implements is
very complete and already he Is
busy making sales for the coming
"The Village Smithy"
TTinmna Fulton conducts the
blacksmith shop of the town and is'
a veteran at the business, having
been in Nehawka for the ras.t near
ly twenty years, prior to which he
pnnrtiiptpd a Tlace at Maple Grove.
He is an expert in his line ana nas,
a wagon repair department in his
shop that is known far and wide fori
the good work he turns out. Mr.'
Fulton is a very pleasant gentleman!
and an excellent workman. J

. The Lundberg' Garage
A few years ago Olaf Lundberg,
who has made his home in and r."ar
Nehawka for the past thirty years,
started a small garage in t!)p moms'
where A. B. Rutlege now conducts
his printing establishment. Although
he had room for but two enrs at a
time, bj- industry, strict attention to
business, good work and courteous
treatment, he has built up a business
which it would be a pleasure to any
man to own. He soon saw the ne
cessity of larger quarters and con
structed a cement block building on
the west side of the street, where he
often times has as high as twenty
five cars stored. Finding this in
adequate he is just now completing
an addition wnich brings the build
ing back to the alley and will afford
greater storage capacity as well as
better working facilities.
The Printer Man
A. E. Rutlege. a veteran printer
and a rustler, conducts the printing
office and when it comes to doing
fine work and lots of it, it is difficult
to find one who is his equal. He is
busy all the time and when not in
the office with some job, is looking
after his chickens in which he takes
great delight and finds a handsome
profit. He raises only the best and
trap-nests the hens, so he knows to
a cent what each one's production is
in eggs. Mr. Rutlege is a jolly old
scout and an excellent citizen.
Miller and Grueber
James Miller and Henry Grueber,
cement workers, have their work
rooms in the basement of the audi
torium and turn out the best of work.
In addition to the ordinary run of
building work, they also manufacture
cement burial vaults. A good many
buildings in and near Nehawka at
test their super or workmanship. At
the present time they are manufac
turing cement blocks for use in
new residences for both members of
the firm this spring.
Well Conducted Pool Boom
Nels Anderson, proprietor of the
amusement parlor, conducts a pool
and billiard hall, which he keeps in
the best of condition, requiring cour
teous treatment from all who fre
quent the place, and extending cor
dial good cheer to all. He carries
an excellent stock of refreshments in
the way of candies, fruits, cigars and
cigarettes, as well as soft drinks.
Another Nice Stock
Joseph Sutphin, the grocer, con
ducts a neat little store, carrying a
nice stock of groceries and some
dry goods. He is always on hand to
accommodate the public snd greets
everyone with cordiality and their
money's worth for every dollar spent
with him.
Harness Shop Busy
John Dale, the harness man, is
busy just now with repair work and j
the selling of new goods, as the
farmers are getting ready early for !
the spring work season which will
soon be at hand. Mr. Dale is a most
genial gentleman and we enjoyed our
stay at his place of business.
ana m
Plumbers and Heaters
The Switzer brothers, plumbers
'and heatrrn. are kept so busy that
the only way one can see them is to
follow them ov.t on the job. They are
uoii:g an excellent business as a re
sult of the fine quality of their work.
j A Painter cf Ability
' Biair Dale, who is a painter of
more than ordinary ability, is kept
busy even during the winter monthH.
He is just completing the new build
ing which Frank Sheldon has been
having constructed, and was busy
papering the home of Z. W. Shrader
last week.
"Square Meal" Emporiums
There are two eating places in
Nehawka, the proprietors of which
know what a "square meal" Is and
are not slow about giving it to their
i patrons. Nicholas Klaurens conducts
such a place at his home in the east
part of town. He is a genial gentle
man whose family unite in extending
tuch a welcome as to make one feel
; at home. The Nehawka hotel is
i conducted by the Blake brothers, and
'. they are doing an excellent business,
jthe house being crowded at all times.
Their excellent patronage is due to
the service they render the public,
both transient and those who make
the hotel their permanent home.
