A deal was closed on Monday where
by Gerd Bruns traded his forty acre
farm just south of town to George Nitz
for the letter's eighty acre farm and S400.
Mr. Nitz'a farm was rated at $95 per
acre and this makes $200 per acre for

price paid so far for land anywhere in
this section of the state.
Otto liittleman, living west of here,

James Vissard is reported to be very
ill, and Miss Stella Parrott of Albion, a
trained nurse.-was called to the bedside
Wednesday afternoon. Some months
ago Mr. Vizzard underwent an operation
at an Omaha hospital and his health

condition is far from promising.

time. They all came back better than
ever satisfied -with Nebraska.
Since the lamps were placed on our
streets last summer there have been sev
eral of the globes broken, and it is a fact
beyond question that they were broken
by a missel thrown at them. These
globes cost two dollars each, and why
any one should destroy them is a mys
tery. Whether it is being done by some
malicious man or by a mischevious boy
it would be a source of great satisfaction
to catch them in the act.

On account of the unusual snow fall
this winter, there arc a number who pre

comes. And the ice in the river is as
heavy, if not heavier than on years
when there were floods.
Farmers are now hauling their grain
to market attracted particularly by the
high prices for corn and wheat. Not
half the corn has been picked and the
spring promises to be a very busy sea
son for farmers about here.
While the ice was heavy enough to hold
the loads, a large amount of grain from
the south side of the river was marketed
in Monroe. And our merchants, as well
as the grain men, were benefited, as

farms were sold at aa high a figure aa

that ten years ago $100 an acre was un
known in this state something of the in
crease in land values will be appreciated.
It will be seen by this "brief summary
that Nebraska for 1909 passes into his
tory with a record of which every citizen
can well be proud. It has been a year
so bountiful and prosperous that when
we come to look at it from a statistical
point of view the record is fairly over

Vincent Bock and "better half" moved
to Columbus this week, where they
have purchased s handsome residence
and hereafter will make it their home.
Mr. and Mis. Bock take with them the
well wishes of everybody in this com
munity. Saloon or no saloon for 1910 is already
the news of the day in many cities and
villages. Figures show that during the
past year the consumption of beer in the
United States has fell off about one
fourth of the previous year, while the
consumption of whisky has almost
doubled. Of the two evils we choose
The days are now lengthening from
both ends. When they first begin to
lengthen the increased amount of day
light comes in the 'afternoon. For
about two weeks after the shortest day of
the year the amount of daylight in the
forenoon does not increase, though the
afternoons begin to lengthen early in
December, even before the days have
reached their shortest length. The
cause of the days lengthening in the af
ternoons and not in the forenoons after
the shortest day is reached is due to the
fact that time is kept by fictitious sun,
which crosses the meridian sometimes
before and sometimes after the real sun.

J. L. Howell says he broke the record
of the Albion hog market last Friday.
He bought seventeen hogs of Paul
Briese for which be gave him a check
for $613.60, an average of $36.09 pei head.
The way it is ordinarily figured, that
amount of pork can be produced for less
than $300 actual cost. Three hundred
per cent profit ought to satisfy anyone,
and ought to attract many more people

sure, so satisfying, as agriculture. At
the worst one can always make a good
living and during such time as we have
had for the past few yeaaa, there is no
business to be compared with it for

The Hypocrite a Genius.
Really to be a hypocrite must re
quire a horrible streugth of character.
Au ordinary man such as you or I gen
erally fails at last because be has not
enough energy to be a man. But the
hypocrite must have enough energy to
be two men. It is said that a liar
should have a good memory. But a
hypocrite must have not only a good
memory of the past, but a consistent
and creative vision or the future; bis
unreal self must be so far real to him
The perfect hypocrite should be a trin
ity of artistic talent. He must be a
novelist like DIckeus to create a false
character. He must be an actor like
Garrick to act it. And he must be a
business man like Carnegie to proUt

easy to find in any country. G. K.
Good Advice Regarding the Pre
vention of Coughs and Colds.
If people would only fortify and
strengthen the system, the majority of
cases of conghe, colds and pneumonia
might bo Bvoided. These troubles are
frequently due to weakness, which pro
duces a catarrhal condition or the muc
ous membrane, which is an internal
akin of the body. When this skin is
weakened it becomes easily infected with
germs which cause many of the diseases
to which flesh" is hoir. Healthy mucous
membranes are essential safeguards of
the body's general health.
An excellent aid in the prevention of
coughs, cold, pneumonia, and such like
infection diseases, is a remedy that will
prevent or cure catarrh.
We have a remedy which we honestly
believe to be unsurpassed in excellence
for the prevention of coughs, colds and
nil catarrhal conditions. It is the pre
scription of a famous physician, who has
an enviable reputation of thirty years of
cures sained through the use of this for
mula. We promise to make no charge
for the medicine should it Ml to do-as
we claim. We urge every uouy wno nas

It stands to reason that we could not

one should hesitate to accept our offer
and try it. We have two sizes of Kexall
Muco-Tone, prices 50 cents and 41 00.
