JOHN MURTEY, OBITUARY John Murtey was born in Lincoln. 111.. Dec. 12th, 1861. He died in Alvo June 15th, 1922, aged 60 years, 6 months and three days. At about the age of ten years Mr. Murtey moved with his parents to Nebraska, settling in Cass county, near Wabash. After nine years, in 1879, the family moved to Kansas, which continued to be the home of the parents until their death, and where they are buried. About the year 1890, Mr. Murtey came to Alvo and engaged in the lumber and grain business; this was near the time that the Rock Island railroad was being built through Alvo. After a number of years in busi ness here he sold out and moved to Clay Center at which place and at Verona, he continued in the lumber and grain business till 1911 when he returned to Alvo bought back his old business and has continued In it till the present time. He was married to Miss Eva Wurl in 1889, to which union two child ren were born, a son dying in in fancy; the other a daughter, Aurel, who is sow married and living in Kansas City. Mr. Murtey was married the sec ond time to Miss Winifred Price of Clay Center, July 11, 1902, which union has been one of devotion and happiness between them till this time. Ill religious matter Mr. Murtey was liberal. Born a Catholic, and retaining his love and loyalty to that church, he yet recognized and re spected the convictions of those Harvest is Do not wait until you have to use your harvesting necessities.

Coatman Hardware Co., Alvo, known as Protestants and was ever liberal and generous to a degree, both in giving of money and -good will to their support. To the Metho dist church here Mr. Murtey has been' one of the most liberal sup porters in' a financial way that the community has had. In the remodel ing of the church recently he not only sold all material at cost to the church, but made a generous contri bution besides. His benefactions of this kind were not confined to Alvo, however, for it is known that in other places he has been a regular contributor to both Protestant and Catholic churches. To those who were in financial difficulty or in distress he was most kind and helpful. Many instances could be cited which are not knowa to the public, where he has given most timely help to those who would not have been able to keep going without it. Such things, however, were never mentioned by him, and perhaps w:ould never have been known by any act of his. Mr. Murtey will be greatly missed in this community. He was a good business man and a good citizen. He stood for progress along all lines, arid he never shrank from bearing his part of the burden the progress entailed. He not only made business for himself but he made it for the community, and he seemed as glad when others prospered as when his own affairs went well. Mr. Murtey was a member of the Nebraska legislature, elected in the fall of 1916. Besides his faithful wife, Mr. Mur tey leaves three brother and a sis ter to mourn his loss: Thomas Mur tey of Weeping Water. Neb.; Henry and James Murtey of Stockton, Kan sas, and Mrs. Mary Frye of Clay Cen ter. Funeral services were conducted from the home Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. June 17, by Rev. E. A Knight of the. M. E. church, assisted by Rev. M. E. Stair of the Brethren church. Interment was at the Alvo cemetery.

As a result some of the companies are back in the market for machinery for the first time in two years. Dril presses, grinders and millers are in good de mand.

MONEY BORROWED Says Chicago Banker Great Brit ain Alone Able to Settle Fart of World War Debt. St. Louis, June 22. The problem of requiring payment of the allied debt, or cancelling it, is "the funda mental question, upon the answer to which will depend the future ot our own commercial and industrial wel fare, and that of the rest of the world," Walter Lichtenstein, Ph. D., the Chicago banker, said at the con vention of the Illinois bankers asso ciation here today. Dr. Lichtenstein then presented a summary of both sides of the controversy as voiced in a recent statement from the Chicago association of commerce. "Most of my future during the last months has been spent in mak ing an economic survey of this coun try on behalf of the American bank ers association," said Dr. Lichten stein. "It is evident that there is a much greater feeling of hopefulness in the country. The most thoughtful observers feel that we have probab ly gone as far as we can Jn a rehab ilitation of our condition unless we can bring some influence to bear up on Europe as it is Europe which is the sore spot and I believe that in the present Juncture of affairs this fact cannot be overemphasized. "With the exception of Great Brit ain none of the European countries is really in a position to brlrig about a net reduction of its governmental indebtedness to us in the near fut ure. ' "The world has become more and more interdependent, even tho it is Indisputable that this general truth is less applicable to this country than to any other. To quote from a recent speech of Mr. Reginald McKenna, the .very able chairman of the ixn don Joint City and Midland Bank: mil 'One nation, and still more a large group of nations, cannot be broken up and impoverished so as to destroy its ability to function, without throwing the entire machine out of gear. The trade of each country is linked up with that of the whole world. Our own trade cannot recover Its pre-war activity whilst so many countries continue in their present broken down condition.' And he well exemplifies that world-trade-interrelationship by showing that if Rus sia, for instance, fails to make pur chase of tea in China or India, as formerly, the result is to affect un favorably the capacity of those coun tries to buy cotton goods from Eng land, which in turn leads to a re duction of the purchases of raw cot ton by England in the United States and that again reacts unfavorably on England's business of shipping, banking, and Insurance."
