Some people are nisinformed as
to the ordinance recently passed

produce to sell. There is a State
statute which gives to persons tie
right to sell heef, mutton, veal or
pork raised by themselves free of
any license, and the license ordi
nance does not prevent any one
from selling such articles as have
been mentioned. Also vegetables,
fruits, cotton, grain, milk, butter,
watermelons, honey, etc., may be
sold free of all license, and tile citv
council had no idea that any One

fullest privileges and will seeure

io half tickets for this entertain

ranged for a children's concert to
be given on some Saturday after
Liool in the near future. While the
parsonage, which was 'arranged
with a view to the social needs of
the congregation, will accommodate
a large number of persons, that
number must necessarily be limited
and it is hoped that those who will
attend will procure their tickets
early. Another reason why this is
desirable is the fact that light re
treshments will be served.
The program will be as follows
