riage on Tuesday, May 10th, at New

of Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Clement of
this city and Mr. Kirk Alexander

The ceremony was very simple and
attended by only the relatives of the
groom and a few close friends of the
young people. The beautiful and im
pressive service was celebrated at the
St. James Episcopal church, the mar
riage lines being read by the Rev.
F. W. Crowder, rector of the church.
Following the ceremony the young
people left on a honeymoon that will
include Washington. White Sulpher
Springs, points in Wisconsin and also
a short visit here in June at the
home of the bride's parents.
The bride is one of the charming
daughters of Plattsmouth and was
reared to womanhood in this city aud
has for the past few years been en
gaged in nurse training at several of
the large hospitals in Chicago and
has been for some time in New York
where she was engaged in post gra
duate work at one of the leading hos
pitals in that city. The groom is in
terested in one of the leading banking
institutions of New York and the
young people are expecting to make
their future home in that city.
The many friends or the bride in
th'is citv will join in wishing her
the fullness of joy and happiness in
the years to come in her new home
in the east.

Mr. and Mrs. John Haynie of This
City Meet With Accident at Pekin,
Illinois, on Last Sunday.
The information has been received
here of a serious automobile accident
on last Sunday at Pekin. 111., and in
which Mr. and Mrs. John Haynie of
this city and their daughter, Mrs.
Vox. were the victims.
From word receieved from Pekin.
it seems that Mr. and Mrs. Fox were
driving in their car and were show
ing Mr. and Mrs. Haynie over the
city and vicinity, with Mr.. Fox driv
ing the automobile and in some way
their car ran into a ditch, throwing
the occupants out and badly injur
ing them. Mrs. Haynie had two rib
broken as well as a severe cut on one
of the lower limbs while Mr. Haynie
had his collar bone broken as well
as the shoulder dislocated, and a se
vere cut over the right eye. Mrs.
Vox. the daughter, was also badly
bruised and suffered severe injuries.
The three members of the party were
taken to the hospital, where they
have since been and while their in
juries are not thought to be dan
gerous thev will require some time
to lieal and it is thought that Mr.
and Mrs. Hayue will be compelled
to remain in the hospital for another
week at least. Mr. Fox was not ser
iously hurt, although he was bruised
severely, but was able to write to the
friends here of the accident.

PREPARING TO ASK
School Board of Murdcck Consolidated
District Visit County Superintend
ent to Arrange for Dissolution
From Wednesday's Daily.
Yesterday afternoon the
With high rents and inadequate
arroriodations everybody realfzes the
need for ht.mes and .strenous efforts
have been made to start a hiiilding
hoiiiii, but it is slow starting, not
withstanding the unquestioned need
What is the reason? Two mainly,
lack of money and hi'sh tests. In
tpite of the great increase in cash
held 1 y the banks and the reduction
of loan, it is Mill difficult to bor
row money for any hut the most nec
essary pui puses.
ISuildini; costs have conic down a
."Treat deal, hut they arc still higher
than they were before the war. These
two tilings check huildin; operations.
There is one kind of building that
is not. held up by high costs, and
that is building- yourself. This may
be the reason why the schools and
colleges, are oerfloying when all
other building industries have to
fight for business.
The foundation of all such build
ings is. thrift. It is at o:cc the most
substantial and least expensive that
you can put in. It costs less than
granite, brick or concrete. It is one
kind of building material that pays
for iisclf right from the start.
It is in times like these that men
and women are most likely to learn
this kind of building. Somehow they
earn something and somehow they
save part of it. The pressure of the
' times admonishes them to take care
of their earnings and tliey are in
the humor to do that when money
is harder to get than in ordinary
savings stamp which hids fair to be
come the most popular security ever
issued. It is convenient to huy and
automatically counts itself. For every
stamp you have a dollar coming.
When you put up money with
some stake-holders you never get
it again. Witness the con man and
bunco artists, hut when I'ncle Sam
is the stake-holder you always know
where to find him. He will even take
care of so small a sum as 23 cents
or so large a sum as $1,000.
If you have not already begun
.saving, start now. Let your thought
ripen into action --NOW.
Ten thoughts make an action.
Ten actions make a habit.
Ten habits make a character.
DECLINE IN RETAIL PRICES
of the consolidate! school district of
which Murdock is a part, were callers
it the office of County Superintendent
Miss Alpha Petersen to arrange the
means by which they might procure
the disf ..'.'it ion of the district. Since j
the ci eat ion of the district the vol-i
ers have decided against the issuance
of bonds for the construction of a
school building and this has made
the machinery of the district inoper
ative as there is no central school es
tablished and accordingly the mem
bers of the school board have decided
to ask that the district he dissolved.
Under the law the districts where
there have been no bonds voted may
cause the dissolution of the district
by securing the petition of twentv
five per cent of the voters of the dis
trict for the holding of another elec- ,
tion and on the presentation of this
petition the county superintendent
will issue the call for the election.
The Murdock board had the deci- ,
fdon of County Attorney A. O. Colo
in the matter and will take the steps
necessary under the law to give them
relief in the matter. j
