As you msy or may not know,
there are a lot of soreheada and mnl
contenta In Roosevelt who, don't think
much of the stick, anyhow, and this
deaplte the fact that some time ago
It was presented to the town, which
had Just taken the Colonel's name.
Mra. Kooaevelt, on behalf of the
Colonel, gave the stick, h cold -headed,
richly carved at a IT, about three Inches
ln diamter. to the Hoosevelt l.ndle.r
In order to prcaervs tho atick from
the predatory malefartora of i'.ooae.
volt It waa placed In a safe
deposit vault In the Kreeport Bank
until recently, when It was brought
out for an airing liefore the Itooaevelt
Board of Trade, at the behest of
Charles Kdwarda. a plumber, who,
knowing full well that the Colonel
waa In Brasll, had the temerity to
propose to auction off the relic of
Progression nnd the brntherless spear.
Some, fearing that the Colonel
might awoop down alngle-handed on
the town on his return from the Ama
zon country if he learned of the Ulsj
Stick's sale, oppoaed Mr. Kdwui.ls's
motion. It wss given Into Um xnfc
