Using Much Mill Feed
It might be supposed that with
the Nehawka mill running practical
ly full time much of the feed by
products received from the milling
of the flour would have to be ship
ped out of town, but such is not the!
case, as the demand is very heavy,
for this feed right here at home. Aj
large number of hog raisers in the'
vicinity are absorbing this product
as fast as it becomes available and
last week Mr. St. John was obliged
to ship in a car load of bran and
shorts for supplying his local trade.
Played in Hard Luck
Will O liaker. the Avoca mer
chant, accompanied by Dr. J. V.
Prendel started out Monday evening
to attend the district Odd Fellows
meeting here, leaving in plenty of
time to insure getting here early,
but had the misfortune to run onto
a tack and were forced to make the
greater part of the trip on the rim.
As a result they arrived too late for
the supper and a few minutes after
the lodge session had reconvened.
They had the tire repaired here and
made better tinif going home.
Work Masonic Degrees
At their regular meeting on last
Wednesday evening the Masonic
lodge had work in the first and third

er and one in the latter.

Would Organize De Molay
Last Wednesday Messrs. Vernon
Am and Ralph J. Ilaynie. of Platts
mouth. both active members of the
Masonic order. were in Nehawka
on business connected with the orga
nizing of a De Molay chapter at the
county seat, -urhieh is an organiza
tion sponsored by the the Masonic
lodge and open to youths of from
!4 to 21 years of age. At present
it is being planned to organize but
one chapter in each county and that
at the county seat. Plattsmouth has
received its charter and is ready to
begin signing members. While the
railroad connections arc not condu
cive to members from here attend
ing the meetings and participating
in the work, the auto has largely re
moved that drawback and it is high
ly probable that a goodly number of
the young men of Nehawka will be
come members of De Molay. which is
intended as a stepping stone to ad
mission into the Masonic order and
founded to inculcate into the minds
rf the members the principles that
are taught by Masonry.
The Nehawka-Murdock Game
The baseball gam between the
Nehawka and Murdoek teams a week
ago Sunday at Murdoek resulted dis
astrously for the home boy, who.
nevertheless put up a good fight.
They speak in pleasant terms of the
fine treatment accorded them at Mur
doek. Yesterday the home team was
scheduled to play Julian . at that
place, but the result is not known
at this time. The line up in the
Murdoek game was Kemlin. c; A.

Installing a New Engine
In order to have more power for
propelling the machinery in his
blacksmith shop. T. K. Fulton is in
stalling a new and more powerful
engine, which he expects to have
running in a few days.
Saw Mill is Running
Elsewhere on this page is an ad
of the Sheldon Manufacturing com
pany, announcing their saw mill is
in operation and ready to do custom
work for those having logs they
wish to convert into dimension lum
ber. The latter part of May. the
mill will be shut down temporarily
on account of farm work needing at
tention at that time, and for this
reason they are urging all to have
their work done now.
A Safe and Sound Institution
There is a great deal of satisfac
tion in knowing you are doing busi- :
ness with a safe institution, be it a
mercantile establishment, manufac-j
turing concern or commercial enter
prise. More especially is this true
when applied to the banking busi-j
ness. You will find the Nehawka
Rank always safe and sane.
