Was a Record Breaker
Monday was a record breaker in the
money order department of the McCook
postoffice almost 2500 worth of money
orders being issued during the day A
most remarkable feature of the day was
the issuing of about 2000 worth of in
ternational orders destined for Greece
The number of orders issued totaled 80
McCook being the only international
money order office in this part of the
state does quite a business in foreign
orders especially since so many foreign
ers are engaged in railroad work in this
part of Nebraska
