The Lcyal Neighbors
This is not an auxiliary of the M.
W. A. but a real live proposition of
true-hearted Americans living in
the vfcinity of Murray and imbued
with the proper spirit. During the
past few weeks Mr. J. B. Seyboldt
has been in the hospital and in very
critical health, no one knew wheth
er he would be able to return home
and while he is getting along as well
as could be expected, still there is a
grave danger existing. But while he
was kept there his eon, William Sey
boldt, and wife, were very attentive
to the invalid and ministered and
cared for him as best they could.
The neighbors, and we claim the
right to call them Loyal Neighbors,
at that have slipped over into the
fields of Mr. Seyboldt and son, and
cared for them in a true neighborly
way and the fields as we passed them
only Tuesday with some of the true
hearted citizens of that neighborhood

You all know the coal strike makes it impossible to buy
any coal from the mines, but we were fortunate to have
our bins filled before the strike.
We handle the Franklin county nut coal, which can
not te beat for threshing coal. Our prices are right.
Better look after your needs before it is all gone, as our
supply will not take care of all our customers.
