Safe Banking and Businooc!
With a steady hand we have endeavored to face
the situation in the business and financial world during
the times which are just now vanishing into the past.
We are now at the threshold of a better day; we
are rapidly passing the crucial time and are entering
into a time of prosperity. The products of agriculture
are appreciating in price, and this is placing the farmer
in better condition.
Let each one bear in mind this is the time for con
servative and energetic action.
We believe in better times, and let us all try to
make them permanent when they arrive. We are here
to render the best service possible in the making of this
prosperity for all, and making it lasting.

Yes you have all waited for the decline of the price
of lumber and it has come, and you are needing the
buildings which you had thought to have had built.
During the time the prices of your products have also
advanced in price. This we are pleased to know.
The prices of lumber and building material has
suffered as much a decline as any could reasonably ex
pect. Really the tendency with the increased building
which is sure to come, might strengthen the market
The young pigs will be safer with a good, dry
warm place. The chickens will lay better with a sunny
warm house. And how about your home? Is it as
comfortable as the family need?
The world is going forward; let's us get busy.

Makes Excellent Display
As a demonstration of his ability
as a decorator, one only has to look
at some of the work which Max Dus
terboff has on exhibition in the west
window of the Murdock Mercantile
store, where two very elegant sam
ples of his work in decoration on
wall paper, which is just now in
vogue. This is very beautiful and
tasteful, as well as being artistic in
all its appointments. Those who have
had the privilege of having Mr. Dus
terhoff do work on their homes are
more than pleased with the high
class of work which he is producing.
The Hotel Question !
The matter of hotel accommoda
tions, which is a much needed ar
ticle in demand by the public, and
one in which all should be interested,
is one that presents itself forcibly
to the people of Murdock. When
the hotel was run by Mr. Gillespie
and wife, no one could say but they
kept an excellent house, with the
best of appointments and the best
of a table.
There is no one who could furnish
better accommodations that this
couple has done, but with no hotel
; now, it places the town at a disad- j
vantage with other towns having ho- J
j tel facilities. To all who have the j
I inf Dfoct nf tha rriTi at ?i T" t it
should be of interest to secure a ;
good hotel for the town.

COMMUNITY AND SCHOOL
fAIH PROVES SUCCESSFUL
Showed Patience and Industry
On exhibition at the M. W. A.
hall, which housed a portion pf the,
fair display, were some beautiful ar
ticles of human handiwork which
had been made by the school children
as well as the older' ladies. There
were a number of quilts which were
really works of art as well as fancy
needle work galore. A full report
will be made by Miss Mary Rush.
One thing or rather two which
appealed to us were the two quilts
made by Mrs. George Melvin. one of
them 49 years old. and which con
tained 13.520 blocks. The other one
contained 9,504, both beauties and
of a ripe age.
Mrs. Henry Schliefert had on dis
play an apron which was made by
herself in Germany 27 years ago,
just like new now.
Miss Viola Everett had on display
two pillow cases which were made by
a friend of hers, a lady of 75 years,
which were indeed rare works of
Mrs. Jess Landholm had a center
piece on display in which was woven
her family name, made in Sweden
"Astride." This was a very beauti
ful piece of fancy handiwork.
G. Bauer had on display a Bible
which was printed in the year 1600.
and was just 322 years of age, but
still well intact and readable.
Will Build a Home
Herman F. Schweppe nas let the
contract for the erection of a new
residence on his farm east of Mur
dock, which will be a comfortable
place to live and with the comfort
will go the convenience of the pres
ent day, as the construction will be
brought down to the modern. The
lumber and building materials have
been purchased from the local lum
ber 3-ard of Tool. Xauraan and Mur
tey and managed by that prince of
businessmen, Mr. II. W. Tool. The
work will be done by Mr. A. S. Dep
ner. who has so many testimonials
to his good workmanship in the
buildings which he has constructed
in this neighborhood.

People Are Moving
Frank Melvin and wife, who have
been living in the house of G. Bauer
and John Gakemeier, have moved to
the house, which has been hereto
fore occupied by Judge H. A. Cast,
lately deceased, who ilj occupy the
ground floor, while Wm. Btrachisky
will continue to occupy the second
story. The place which was occu
pied by Mr. Melvin will be occupied
by Mr. and Mrs. John Gakemeier
and family, while the place which
he has vacated will be occupied by
Henry Schlaphoff. With all thi3
there has been made no empty places
in which to live.
Verily Murdock is needing some
residence houses that the people can
be accommodated. Some one with
the capital could well get good re
turns by the erection of some homes.
We understand some homes are be
ing contemplated building this season.
The Way the Games Went
The girls' basket ball team have
been keeping up their winning streak
while the young men have not done
quite so well. At Weeping Water
the girls of Murdock won over Weep
ing Water by a score of 18 to 8,
while the boys lost to the tune of 39
to 7. and the pony team fared no bet
ter as they lost by 27 to 2. At Ash
land the boys lost 32 to 42 and the
Murdock girls won, 79 to 4,
Large Number of Exhibits in All
Classes Work of Students is
, Having its inception in the Mur
doch schools, the community and
school fair which was held in Mur
dock last week, proved a great suc
cess, even surpassing the fondest
hopes cf its instigators.
One of the greatest results accom
plished by the fair is the stimulated
activities of the students who are do-1
ing things as they grow up in the
community to become part of its citi
zenry in later years.
We inspected the displays and ex
amined the work of the students in
every department, and were grati
fied at the progress they were mak
ing, the handiwork so evident in
every department and the great in
terest shown by the pupils them
selves. Displays of their drawing,
from the beginners to the graduat
ing class, the work of the manual
training and domestic science depart
ments as well as others all were
there and gave concrete evidence of
progress being made. To tell of all
the articles displayed would require
the entire edition of this paper.
Suffice to say, the exhibit was com
plete in every detail and reflected a
great deal of credit upon both the
teachers and pupils.
As we were about to enter the
school building we were confronted
by the date of the erection of the
building 1S92 just thirty years
ago. An antiquated wooden build
ing, it doubtless served its purpose
at the time it was erected but has
now plainly outgrown its usefulness.
Consider the great strides in homes
that have come since this building
was erected, and as you note the
pleasant surroundings of the modern
fireside, you will be impressed with
how much the home comforts are in
advance of the best our school build
ing will permit. The pupils we are
sending there are to be the men and j
women of tomorraw and will soon go
out to take their place in the world. I
Would it not be better then to pro-!
vide them with the best of facilities
and enlarge their opportunities which j
will reflect credibly in their after j
years of life. j
Elsewhere on this page will be
found a more complete account ofj
the fair, furnished through the kind
ness of Miss Mary Rush.
