Business Getting Better
That business is on the
and fast approaching a return to
normalcy cannot help but be noted
on every hand. At the local garages
the volume of work has been rapidly
from 1 increasing until now even the bosses
1 are compeiieu to n"i
from twelve to fifteen hours a day.
The elevators is another line In which
the iticrease has been most marked.
In every line, however, there is re
newed activity and prospects look
better every day.
In some of the wholesale markets
there is a shortage of merchandise,
idue to the closed-down conditions of
ja few 111011! hs. and this means the
i wheels of industry will have to turn
with increased activity in order to
!ai;:iin catch up. The fco-caHcrt buy
I its' strike has not been without its
I fcood effects as well as its had. and
i these are reflected in a cleaning up
of the surplus market and a resump
tion of business on the basic law of
supply and demand.

Found a Bridge Out
While the Journal field man was
en route from Alvo to Murdock last
Thursday, kipping along the couu-j
iry road east of the r.ushherry school:
at the rate of ahout fifteen miles an
hour, we met up with an accident'

the center, before we were aware of 1
it were were right upon up to thej
place where a bridge had been but
was no more We applied the brake
but to no avail and our "Henry"
plunged down the bank. No amount
of coaxing would induce her to come
up again, so we went down the road
afoot in search of help, coming to
the home of George Nickel, who fur
nished a spide and returned with 'is.
After moving about some dozen or
more cubic yards of dirt. we were
abb- to pet the car out. but tarried
long enough to place some posts in
the roadway so other travelers over
the highway might not have the
tame luck. We afterward learned
that three other cars bad gone into
the same hole.
The Local Cream Market

that Murdock has an exei-llenl cream
station wlore the highest market

Lincoln. July iMHh. Protection
against typhoid by means of the gen
eral use of the anti-typhoid serum
us; d to immunize the soldiers of the
world war is strongly recommended
bv Dr. L H. Dillon, chief of the
slate bureau of health.
" Kvery person in the state of Ne
braska should be inoculated with the
anti-typhoid serum." Dr. Dillon said
today. There is no need for anyone
to have typhoid if he takes the proper
precautions. Army records show that
there is no element of danger in the
use of the serum. Out of more than
4.1MM1.OHO nu-ii in the army inoculated
there was not one case of disability
as a result: There was so little ty
phoid in the army during the war.
w hen conditions generally were ideal
for it, that the value of the serum is
Dr. Dillon declared, however, that
there is no danger of a typhoid epi
demic in Nebraska. The records
show few cases, he declared, and are
no more than ordinary. "Nebraska is
not a lyphoid territory." he said. "In
Iowa, not 200 miles east, where the
water is obtained from shallow wells,
then? is more typhoid in a month
than we have in a year." he declared.
Washington. D. C. July 28. Di
partisan senate forces today cleared!
the way for passage, pos.sihly tomor

The new measure, presented by
Senator McNary. republican. Oregon,
had the general backing of demo
crats as well as republicans, and
upgrade 1 leaders said passage of the .substi
tute was assured.
Besides adopting the plan for fnr
nishiDg of agricultural credits by the
finance corporation, the commit
tee bill would increase the author
ized bond issue to $2.(100.000.000 and
also authorize direct leans lo produc
ers and foreign governments.
Senator Norri", republican. Ne
braska, today spoke again in support
cf his original bill and in bitter criti
cism of the substitute plan which
he. with Senator Ladd. republican.
North Dakota, had opposed in coin
mil tee. The former declared that all
"sins" charged against the Norris
hill applied with equal force to the
substitute which, he said, proposed
a "rake off" for bankers and would
increase farmers' interest burdens.
Senator Lenroot. republican. Wis
consin, declared th new substitute
was "in real interest of the farm
er." He deplored the "temper" he
said Senator Norris had displayed,
adding that Mr. Norris appeared

Dixlosures regarding genesis of

made by Senator Lenroot. who said
thaj after being informed that Sen
ator Norris refused compromises, he
with Senator Kellogg, republican
Minnesota, held conferences with
Secretary Hoover and Director Mey

which resulted in framing of the ad
ministration measure. The first sug
gestions to have the war finance cor

senators, while the "principal ni'.iv

Deposits in this Bank are Protected by the
Dank Guarantee System of this State!
The Reason for a Bank Guarantee Law
The historv of bank failures shows that depositors seldom lose
their monev absolutely, but that they generally lose the use of it

the Guarantee law. depositors get their money when they want it.
