19 NEVERS FOR GEARY
The new firm of Craven &
Scruggs Furniture Co. have pur-
chased the entire Hanan stock
and opened for business Tues-
day. They are looated in the
same building on broadway where
they invite friends and custo-
mers to come whether you buy
or not, they will show you thru
the stock and quote prices.
Mr. Craven is a resident of
Geary and is well and favorably
known. Mr. Scruggs is a son-
in-law of S. C. Craven and is a
new oomer to our town. We
wish them much sucoess.
City Water Scarce.
While the mains of the city
water works system have never
froze or been out of working
order, save a few hours one
ofternoon, water in Geary has
been scarce, owing to the faot
that private attachments have
frozen, due in many cases to be-
ing laid too shallow when oity
water was installed, as a mean,
of saving a small sum.
In case of fire, our supply of
water was as great as ever and
the splendid fire department of
Geary could have quenched the
demon blaze as easily as hereto-
fore. Zero weather cuts no
lioe" but makes plenty.
