"Service That Satisfies"
Norval Bothwell, Prop.
Certain business houses are suc
cessful in a community because they
consistently and faithfully supply
constant needs to the public. This
well known firm certainly comes un
der this classification. Mr. Bothwell
knows that groceries, meats, fruits
and vegetables are a necessity which
are wanted quickly and at any
moment. He feels that success in this
line will go to the firm that is able
l: supply the wants of the people at
time of need.
In studying the needs of these
people he has learned many things
during the past. Important among'
these is that as complete a stock as
possible must be kept on hand at all
Each customer must be given the
same attention. These features have
become a part of his business policy
to please the public at all costs. Such
service is bound to reap dividends.
This store has fixtures and furni
ture of a type that aid in .he prompt
handling of all stock and make it a
very convenient store flora which to
In this review we are pleased to
refer Bothwell's Clover Farm Store
of Ermwood to all our readers. Mr.

who may be a visitor. These ele

had been sufficient skilled labor for
the work but now but two such
qualified were registered in the coun
ty. The work would cover only work
for four persons for four weeks or
a month. The "WPA offices would
be able to send in skilled workers
from the outside to handle the work.
The supervisor was not in a position
to state as to Mr. Mann's ability to
carry on the work as had been plan
ned. Paul Haberlaine, of the WPA staff
was present and gave a short talk on
the matter. He said that George
Mann had been granted an indefinite
leave of absence to work on the leg
islative revision. The preliminary
survey of the city ordinances had
been made, the Bpeaker having been
looking after this portion of the
work. If agreeable to the council
the preliminary work of typing could
be started. While preliminary typing
could be done here, it would be neces
6ary to take the work to Omaha for
completion. The classification would
be made in two classes, ordinances
of a special nature and those of a
There was some question as to
what additional sums might be neces
sary for the city to pay in addition
to that already made for material.
It was stated that the city proporr
tional share of the general office ex
pense would be $7.21, but it might
be necessary to have this increased.
City Attorney J. H. Davis did not
think that the need was great enough
for the expense, that the amount
spent might go into a larger labor
hiring project of some kind.

it. It is just this guarantee of good
workmanship that has been respon

Take Your Produce to Griffin's Pro
duce at Union . . . Unless You are
looking for Top Prices, Honest
Weights and Courteous Service!
With produce a staple commodity
in the American home, the price of
produce, now seemingly low, is bound
to rise. Every home in America must
serve produce in some form in order
tc maintain a standard of health and
vigor in their family. The chicken
raiser and the dairyman have always
been ahead of the grain farmer. Stick
to the hen and to the cows.
Griffin's Produce at Union has
provided a "money crop" for the
farmers. The valuable year around
"money crop" is in its poultry and
dairy products. Cream checks, egs
money and receipts from the sale of
chickens is the money upon which
the good farmer depends to carry
along the every-day expenses of liv
ing. These returns pay the grocery
bills, buy gasoline, buy a new radio,
keep things in repair and establish
the standard upon which the Nebras
ka farmer lives a standard higher
than known in any other district.
Griffin's produce prices are as high
or higher than any place in the coun
try. Their service truck is available
for picking up poultry lor any one
near or far. They have built their
station from the lower levels to the
high standard it is today. Mr. Dale
Karnopp has secured a blacksmith
to continue on in his place. If you
want to patronize a new station that
pays the best prices for produce, we
suggest you drop iu at the Griffin's
Produce at Union. They will appre
ciate your patronage.
On motion the matter was laid
over until a later time after the close
of the legislative session.
On the matter of the claim of the
McMaken Transfer Co., for $84 for

Chairman J. C. Comstock reported
that on bids for electrolier globes
that J. F. Warga was the lowest on
the canopy type and Robert Cappell
on the plain or box type. Six of
each of these had been purchased by
the city for replacement purposes.
C. E. Markham of the WPA re
ported that there was more dirt
found at the quarry where rock was
being secured for tiie Chicago avenue

expensive, he had found a new

less expensive altho a greater dis

matter up with the committee.

There is no substitute for a farm

there has been many a substitute

Elmwood elevator stood the test of
the most disturbing financial storms
of all times. Every stockholder
should be proud of his own institu

Co-Op Union of Elmwood is a home

whether he co-operates with his fel

separate entity in a world in which
cooperation in all lines grows stead

To encourage larger vegetable gar
dens on farms, the Agricultural Ad

Department of Agriculture has made
an important change in its regulations
governing soil depleting crops.
Officials of the department have ap
proved the following statement as a
correct description of the new status
of home gardens on the farm:
"In the 1939 Agricultural Conserva
tion Programme of the Department of
Agriculture, home gardens on the
farm are encouraged, by being specifi
cally exempted from the list of soil
"This meane a good deal to the
farmer. Ia the past, if he grew a
garden, its area was figured in his
allotment for soil depleting crops the
cash crops, in other words, upon which
he depended for cash income.
"Now he can make his garden with
out including it in his allotment and
thus he is able to devote his entire
soil-depleting acreage allotment to
cash crops and in addition increase
his garden acreage.
"In money value this means a sub
stantial sum, and the new ruling
should result in a great increase in
Regulations state that the crops
which the farmer can grow in his gar
den include sweet corn and pop corn,
potatoes, peas, and all annual and per
ennial vegetables which are consumed
on the farm. Crops for canning are
included so long as they are eaten
by the home folks and not sold.
The actual cash value of this new
ruling will vary so much in different
localities that no figure can be given;
but to the farmer who makes a gooc"
