A bank works for you night and day, week after week, adding
cents to your dollars. Little by little the amounts grow till each
addition is a respectable sum.
Where does the gain come from? Not from your pocket. Nor
from ours. It is the result of production. Money placed in a bank
is given an opportunity to work and to produce.
Thus a bank builds your wealth. Start with a small deposit
if yen will. Add to it when you can-r-regularly if you can do so.
It will not be long till you can fairly see it grow.

was out over the county last Tues

tering Plattsmouth the steering gear

was being driven by Orin Rogers,
went wrong, the car vaulting the
highway and taking for the neigh

forty feet of fence on Mr. Jirousek's
lot and then took for an apple tree,
where is stopped, snorting and smok
ing like a threshing machine. Should
the progressive candidate follow the
impulse of the car in which he was
riding, he will surely stir up some
thing in the field of politics.

Murray Public Schools
With four members of the faculty
of the Murray public schools, they
are doing some very fine work in
the line of instruction and have the
school well in hand. The principal.
Miss Kelly, has labored hard for the
accomplishment of the best for all
the pupils and has been assisted very
nobly by Misses Ptak. Rainey and
Sans. The representative of the Jour
nal visited the school and found ev
erything in proper order. Miss Sans,
who has the primary room, has been
there for a number of terms and has
twenty pupils. She has an attractive
room and one in which all the child
ren feel perfectly at home in and dec
orated in the fall decorations which
makes it indeed a very pleasant place
for the little ones. Miss Rainey. who
has the more advanced room of the
younger pupils, has also twenty stu
dents and has things so arranged
that all the pupils are putting forth
every effort to make the most of the
opportunities afforded and are mak
ine: very satisfactory progress. The
advanced class which consists of the
eramniar grades are in charge of
Mips Ptak, while the higher grades
are under the supervision of Miss
Kelly. The worth of the instruction
given can be measured by the prizes
which a number of the pupils secur
ed for their work at both the state
and county fairs. At the state fair

ond prize on their work, it being a

tained on Thursday last,
t The brother of the deceased, J. A.

residents of this county and the de

State is Represented.
Washington, Oct. 22. Appoint
ment by President Harding of a com
mittee of sponsors, representing ev
ery state, territory and insular pos
session of the union, to aid in the ex

The president, in appointing these

sired them "to co-operate with the

our countrymen the great call which
has come out of the near east to the
heart of the American people.
"More than a half miklion suffer

en and children, are dependent on
the benevolence of America," the
president's message said. "The Red
Cross and near east relief commit
tees, working in harmony and sup
ported by all benevolent organiza
tions, are responding to the call. The
co-ordinating committee is helping
develop the money raising campaign
and bringing into concerted action all
the friends possible. You will not be
burdened with details, but the asso

CENTER OF WHITE POPU
LAT1N MOVES WESTWARD
Washington, Oct. 19. For the
first time in three decades the cen
ter of foreign born white population
of the United States moved west
ward instead of eastward in the ten
years from 1910 to 1920.
The westward movement was due
to the increase in foreign born white
population in California, Texas and
Arizona, the census bureau stated,
in announcing the center to be lo
cated in latitude 41 3' 45 north.
longitude 84 59' 17" west. That
point is in the eastern part of Allen
county. Indiana, about 10 miles

MINOR CHANGES MADE
IN THE NAVAL UNIFORM
Washington. Oct. 21. An order
issued today by Rear Admiral Wash
ington, chief of navigation, prescrib
ing minor changes in the navy's uni
form regulations, added another
chapter to the perennial debate over
the distinctive gold braid markings
to be worn by officers and chief war
rant officers. The order deprives chief
warrant officers of the full half inch
sleeve braid bestowed on that grade
under Secretary Daniels' administra
tion, and orders a return to the brok
en gold stripe of previous years.
Green and olive drab uniforms for
naval aviators also are banned under
the new regulations, the, flying

M'ADOO SAYS NO
MISTAKE TO ELECT
Before leaving Omaha to fill a
speaking engagement at Wichita,
Kansas, William G. McAdoo, contrary
to his general custom, which is not
to refer to state candidate in his
speeches, gave out the folowing rela
tive to Charles W. Bryan, democratic
candidate for governor:
"Ordinarily I do not speak about
state candidates, but I know enough
of the activity and record of Charles
W. Bryan and his illustrious brother,
William J., to warrant me in speak
ing about the candidacy of Charles
W. Bryan for governor.
"He is a man of great public spirit
and has a high sense of duty essen
tial to democracy. His official record
as a public official at Lincoln, his
wide experience in public affairs, ad
mirably qualifies him for the gover
norship. He has made a long and
steadfast fight for constructive and
progressive government. His view
points are such that he will properly
administer to the high office of gov
ernor in the interest of the masses.
You will make no mistake in elect
ing Charles Bryan governor."

Lincoln, Oct. 23. Whether danc

The melancholy days have come.
The saddest of the season
When dealers boost the price of coal
Without apparent reason.
When fuel is so hard to get.
And dollars scarceto roll
When you sit bundled to the neck
And curse the price of coal.
With this great treasure on the place
For spring there is no hurry.
You go around with smiling face
And let the coal man worry.
