Stone Business is Good
Ole Olsen, the stone merchant of
Weeping Water, has just completed
the shipment of some 500 tons of
crushed rock to Scottsbluff, where it
is to be used in the beet sugar fac
tory during the process of refining
sugar. He also has a contract to
deliver 500 car-loads of stone to
Gibson, where it will be used in the
Missouri river improvement program.
Such orders as this help to give men
employment and we hope the fore
going are but an indication of vol
ume demands when the season opens
up in the spring. Cass county's rock
quarries have bf come one of the im
portant industries and give employ
ment to many men.

AGED DO a LEAVES HOME
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 21 (UP)
Chessie, a Chesa peaks Bay retriev
er, had been in Henry Lovell's home
so long the family believed he knew
what they wore talking about most
of the time.
They forgot about that, however,
last night when at the dinner table:
with Cbeesie sitting nearby awaiting
a scrap or two, they talked about dis
posing of him.
He was 14 a ripe old age for a
dog and feeble and his muscles were
stiffening, they said, so it would seem
the most merciful thing to have a
veterinary destroy him painlessly.
After a time, Chessie rose, took a
long glance at his master, and left
He has not returned.
