Clean Foot Ball— Next
Game With Marshall
Hennessey lligh's foot ball
team chalked up another victory
| last Friday afternoon by the
score of 26 to 13. Hennessey j
won handily, but it was no pink
tea affair. The locals had to
work for their victory in every |
quarter, but the II. 11. S. boys
delivered the goods, holding
| their heavier opponents at criti-
cal points like veterans. One of
| the most spectacular features of i
| the game was the 100-yard sprint I
I the full length of the field by j
McGee, of Hennessey, who se-j
cured the oval after an attempt-

Now the Time
[To buy stock cattle.
To fill that silo.
You can make some money on live stock.
I We lost money on the wheat crop.
Last August we loaiwd u customer $300.00 with which
he bought 16 heifers. Last week he sold the bunch and
cleared $230.00. It cost him nothing to make this extra
profit—he had the pasture and grew the roiighness.
Thereby turning the usual dead loss into a net profit.
You Can do it.
We make a specialty of cattle loans, large or small. We
try to keep in touch with the market, we can advise you
on what to buy. We will back our judgment and our
faith in a good man, by putting up the money to buy the
stockers, if you have the roughness and the ability to
handle stock. Figure with us. Terms to suit. We can
and do help our customers make money.
