One year with another the farming industry is a
prosperous one. Sometimes the prices go unusually
low, but those times are usually followed by an advent
or higher ones, due to decreased production. The people
must eat, and the era of better prices is ahead. Do not
slackn production, then, but be prepared to share in the
To raise the most from you land and get the best
returns, improved machinery is essential. We are
carrying the best lines and can supply you with what
you want. If you wait till prices advance, before you
resume production you will have nothing to sell when
the reaction comes. Enough others will fall by the way
side to assure a greater demand, and YOU cannot af
ford to pass up this opportunity. Better get the neces
sary machinery now and go in for a bumper year. See
us for anything you may need and be assured of the
best of service.

H. V. MCDONALD,
Finds Everything 0. K.
The state tire inspector, I). M.
Trumble. of Lincoln, was in Mur
dock last Friday inspecting the city's
fire conditions, and in his report he
stated everything to be O. K. with
the exception of a few minor matters
of carelessness on the part of one or
two of our citizens. There were ad
vised to get busy at once and clean
up around their premises which will
not only reduce fire danger but im
prove the looks of the town as well
Mr. .Trumble offered a worth-while
suggestion along the line of fire pre
vention, which was that a Ford
chasis could easily be converted in
to a fire wagon, on which could be
mounted a chemical engine and then
in case of a fire one man could soon
get the apparatus to the scene of the
Sure a Fine Fish
V. McDonald accompanied
number of others to Meadow a few
days ago on a fishing expedition and
on his return home brought with him
an extra fine fish which he has pro
vided an aquarium for and has the
same on exhibition in his place of
business. Mr. McDonald says ' he
thinks the specimen he has in cap
tivity is a distant relative of the one
that had the experience with the
prophet Jonah. Judging from the
looks of it. we. would quite agree
as to it being- a distant relative of
the illustrious whale. In fact so dis
tant that it could scarcely be seen a
mile away with the naked eye. The
fineness of this fish is one of its
chief recommendations for it certain
ly couldn't qualify in a size contest,
so small is it.

F. R. GOBELMAN
Undergoes Operation in Omaha
Emanuel Thimgan, of Sutton, a
brother of Edward and Matthew of
this place, underwent an operation
for the removal of a tumor from the
bladder at the Clarkeson hospital in
Omaha last Saturday afternoon. Mr.
Thimgan has been suffering greatly
for some time and was unable to se
cure any relief save through the op
eration. He had just returned from
Buffalo, N". Y., where he went to the
World's Dispensary and had a thor
ough clinic made of his condition.
As they do not perform surgical op
erations, they advised Mr. Thimgan
to return to the west and undergo an
operation for his trouble. Immedia
tely upon his return he went to the
Clarkson hospital where the opera
tion was performed. Edward went up
to be with his brother through the
ordeal and to render what assistance
he could. It is to be hoped Mr.
Thimgan will have a speedy recovery
as well as a permanent one.

Loses Chickens and Butter
Last week, while J. J. Gustin was
busy at the stock yards in Murdock,
loading cattle for shipment to Om
aha, some miscreants went to his
farm home a few miles from town
and appropriated two dozen chick
ens of the Rhode Island Red variety.
They also attempted to get away with
his auto and did take some six or
eight pounds of butter that had been
placed in the car to take to town.
The maurauders had left their Ford
at the Callihan church and carried
the chickens and butter to the car
there. Alva Bornemeier also had a
tire stolen from his car at the church
as well as did H. H. Dehning at the
same time and Robert Stock lost an
overcoat. These acts of petty thiev
ery afford sufficient provocation for
the securing of a gun loaded to the
muzzle with good old fashioned buck
shut. This is about the only suc
cessful way to stop it. The only clue
to any of the depredations commit
ted in the vicinity lies in the fact
that recently some one brought four
dozen chickens and a can of cream
to the cream station, failing to call
for the cream can when it had been
