—Lots of people have heard about
that automobile of J. M. Mingle’s.
Well, it's still on deck. It has been
worked on, we believe, by a majority
of the auto repair shope for miles
around Manchester, and is now In the
hands of T. E. Buckles, who has the
engine so that It will run, and one of
these days he says he Is going to get
the machine all together and pull up
in front of the Journal office and take
us a ride. We shall not let him ven-
ture very far out of town, however,
unless some of the boys follow with a
Reo, Buie or E. M. F. to see that we
get back home. The machine ih
slightly out of date, having been
manufactured when the automobile
business was in Its infancy, but that’s
no sign that it cannot be made to go.
—J. J. Warnock sold the Michael
residence property in the extreme
northeast comer of town this week tt>
the editor of the Journal, at an ad-
vance of tSO over what it cost him a
few months ago. The property has a
good 3-room house and an entire block
of ground, and will be handy for the
Journal for hired help on the farm, as
It lays just across the Street from the
Journal firm house. Pete Pederson
will probably occupy the house as
soon as Mr. Stone, the present oocu-
pant, moves to the Ed Llvengood
farm east of town.
—After selling his old home place,
E. E. Burdue straightway went and
bought the 124-acre tract of land west
of town In Harper county, belonging
to Sam Ford, paying >50 per acre for
It. We have not been informed in the
matter, but suppose Ed will move to
ihe farm he has just purchased. He
already owned 200 acres of good land
adjoidlng the land that he bought,
and also has a lease on a school quar-
ter on the Oklahoma side of the state

him to spread hi mseir, as the whole
