TLATTSMOUTH SEMI-WEEKLY JOURNAL
THAT SATISFIED SMILE
It's Broadest at Harvest Time
Poets rh3'me about the "smiling country in the month of
May." But we'd rather see that same country at harvest
time, when the smiles are on the faces of the farmers af
ter their well-earned crops have come in.
It's the same in every business at "harvest" the time
when a man gathers in the returns on his hard work.
Our patrons, using to the full our many facilities and per
sonal service, reap better returns on their investments
time, work and money.

cases are rare. Now with such a con

the people cannot buy the merchants
cannot import. There are deep lines
on the faces of the honest merchants
as a result of a great commercial cri
sis. Yet another result of the life in
the dry bones, the shaking of the
ruts, is the demand for a new church.
You ask how that is since we .have
such a beautiful well appointed
building. Well these, are the reasons:
The two city congregations of Meth
odists, the English-speaking and the
Spanish-speaking built this church
as a joint property, but now the
Spanish people feel that we are tak
ing up too much room and we feel
they and ourselves need more, so
our English-speaking people have re
solved to draw out and build a
church. It was the wish of the Bish
op that we should uo this is possinie.

day that we had to pay for the deeds
we gathered in cash $20,000 and I
had to borrow $10,000 to meet the

lend us that $10,000 is still another
story of wonderful providence. .Last
