PLATTSMOUTH SEMI - WEEKLY JOUBJffAL
PREPARED EXCLUSIVELY FOR THE JOURNAL.
Gofo Panning and Qusinpcc!
a steady hand we have endeavpred to face
the situation in the business and financial wprld 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.

studying to best serve the people of
this community will in a short time
be in business again, and will offer
to the people of this community

to put this man going again by mak
ing their purchases of him whepever
they can. Mr. Gehrts will make an
tnnouncement of his plans with the

public know where he can be found
