Your buildings are depreciating to a much greater
extent from lack of paint than any gain which can pos

labor. Wc have come clean on this readjustment busi
ness and our prices are as low in proportion as those
prevailing on farm products today.
Ilic protection of your building (interior and ex

is your cheapest and best insurance. Then why wait

The Murdock ball team is making
a pretty good record in its games,
even though they are losing some
of them. At the county seat, on
account of not having spikes in his
shoes the pitcher, Mr. Lawrence, was
not able to give the delivery that
resulted after the pitchers box had
been dried by a number of pails of
dirt. The game was a good one
anyway, and all were well satisfied.
They played a game yesterday with
the Eagle team at Eagle, but with
what results we have not learned
as yet.

Sunday Base Ball.
Considerable agitation has been
made regarding the matter of play
ing ball on Sunday. This is a mat
ter in which the state took up the
proposition and enacted a law which
puts the matter up to the locality
where the game is to be staged.
The matters of playing or not play
ing to be decided by the majority
of the people constituting the city
or precinct where the games are to
be played. Why so much stress is
placed upon ball when there are
many places where craps are shot,
much more to the detriment of the
community, and the youth.
While base ball is a noisy game
and played as an out doors sport,
are not saying that it should be
played on Sunday, but it is sure not
attended with the harmful results as
the secret crap shooting. For at the
game of ball all Is open and above
Fishing Very Popular.
The fishing grounds at and near
Meadow, where there are some lakes
that make a good fishing place, is be
ing attended by large numbers of
people. It is reported that on last
Sunday from Omaha and other places
surrounding, there were as many as
five hundred people who had come
with a rod and line for the pure sport
of catching the foxy fish, and that
they were all rewarded by a good
catch. Thursday of this week, some
dozen of the lover of this sport from
Murdock and vicinity, went and were
rewarded by a catch of 191, they be
ing Messrs. I. G. Hornbeck, Lacey
McDonald, E. W. Thimgan. John
Gakemeier. Gust Gakemeier, Ralph
Rager, J. E. McHugh. Chas. Rau, A.
J. Bauers. Harry Gillespie. H. W.
Tool and Ed Rau. With the poles
and lines swishing through the air
and this dozen young men intently
watching their corks bobbing in the
water, it would have been a sport
to see them landing the sparklers,
until with one hundred and ninety
one, they thought they had enough
sport for the day and returned home
with their immense hatch. Twenty
were given as a present to the wri
ter for the Journal, and which we
can testify made some excellent eat
ing. Thanks boys for the kindness
and the fish.

One Way to get Big
Mileage Regularly
1 he importance of gasoline tcith a complete chain of boiling
point fractions
You wouldn't expect to light a green stick with a match.
Yet some gasolines are like green sticks. They neither
ignite quickly nor burn up completely because they lack
sufficient low boiling-point fractions for kindling, and have
too great a proportion of slow-burning elements.
Straight distilled gasoline
nmm m uvajt t muni
possesses the complete
chain of boiling points
which assures quick igni
tion and practically instant,
complete combustion.
Every bit is converted into
heat and power gives big
ger mileage per gallon than
slow-burning mixtures, or
less carefully refined gaso
line. Red Croun Gasoline has a com
plete chain of boiling point
Red Crown Gasoline is straight
distilled gasoline. It meets all
specifications required by the
United States Navy for motor
gasoline. It has a complete
chain of boiling-point fractions
-low, medium and higher boiling-point
fractions which, in
right proportion, assure big
power and big mileage. It ia
uniform and dependable wher
ever you buy it.
Hotc to get better results at less
The way to get mileage and
power economically, to escape
carbon troubles, to have a spry,
quick-starting engine, is by per
fect adjustment of the motor to
the fuel used. This can only be
secured by using gasoline that
is UNIFORM gasoline you
can get wherever you are
gasoline that gives a lean, dry,
powerful mixture under all
weather conditions. Use Red
Crown Gasoline. ,
Authorized Red Croun Dealers
Wherever you go you can al
ways get Red Crown Gasoline
from reliable, competent and
obliging dealers. The gasoline
and motor oils they sell make
motor operation more economi
cal and more dependable. They
are glad to render the little
courtesies which make motor
ing pleasanter. Drive in wher
you see the Red Crown Sign.

Friends Celebrate Silver Wedding
Mr. and Mrs. Peter Lenhard were
the victims of a pleasant surprise
Saturday evening, when about io
of their relatives, neighbors and
friends drove up to their home and
announced that they had come to help
celebrate their silver wedding anni-
versarv. The whole affair had been
kept secret and was as complete a
surprise as the guests could wish.
A pleasant evening-was epent in
visiting, music and games. A mock
wedding was given after which they
were showered with well wishes for
many more years of happiness anil
At 12 o clock a tine luncheon was
served and the table was graced by a
larce cake beautifully decorated.
The bride was asked to cut it anfk
found it to be made of pasteboard.
Mr. and Mrs. Lenhard received.
many pieces of silverware which
they will cherish through the future

The Best Service!
That is it, we serve the best in the matter of home
decoration, papering, painting and varnishing. No job
too small for our consideration; none too large for us
to estimate.
See us for figures and estimate of cost. We are
here for service.
June Brings Much Work!
The recent rains have insured a good crop of small
grain, which has been a little behind, and which is now
rapidly maturing. The corn also is making rapid strides.
This is bringing much work in June. The best of
machinery is needed for caring for the crops in this
busy season.
See us for what you are needing. We are able to
care for your wants. Cultivators, or any corn working
machinery, hay making machinery and what is needed
for the harvest. Binders, harvesters, twine and all that
is required to care for the harvest.
We are handling gasoline and motor oils also.
The Implement Man
Date Slightly Mixed
When we stated in last week's
Murdock news that the special elec
tion for the purpose of voting on
dissolution of the consolidated dis
trict would be held on June 12th, we
were slightly in error. It happens
that June 12th. falls on Sunday, and
of course everyone knows no election
could be held on that day. What we
should have said was June 11th
Saturday from 7 to 10 o'clock p.
m. The new plat seems agreeable to
a large majority and there is little
doubt but that the dissolution issue
will be readily carried .at the forth
coming election Saturday night. The
holding of it during the evening
hours will enable the farmers to get
in to vote if they wish, which some
couldn't do in the daytime as the
busy season in farm work is fast ap
proaching. The Move Produce Co. are now
located in Plattsmouth, and are pay
ing the highest market price for
your produce, eggs and cream. They
have been buying a great deal of
produce and meeting with favor
among the farmers.
Your ad will carry punch if you
write it as a plain "selling talk" in
stead of trying to fuss it up with
frills and exagerations.
Are You Caring for
the Cars?
You know that the autos cost when you purchased
them, are you caring for them in order that they will
last? We are doing expert repairing what is reliable,
and keep the cars from deteriating.
Our supply of accessories and auto supplies is
complete. See us for the best work and best cars.
