EJitor Tribune 1
Thinking that perhaps a line
or two from me at this tir;ie, might
not be out ol place, I will tell you
first that I highly enjoy the wrkl),
visits of the I'ribu.nk, and most
heartily thank you lor the same.
I 'am, and always have been in
hearty accord with the principles,
both morally and politically, at ad
vocated in your excellent paper,
and at the old adage taid, "trutn
and right wdl always come to the
top. it you will only have patience,
and wait." This hat clearly been
demonstrated in our ttate in the Ust
election. Such victories do not
grow spontaneously, but are btought
about by earnest and taitbtul work
by the pulpit and the press. So
these two influences have been the
most potent to bring about just such
victories as we have bad. Twen
ty three years ago, when I, ia my
zeal for truth, temperance and re
ligion, was proclaiming them to
the young city, the Triiiinx edi
tor, then publishing the Gazette, was
likewise aiding aud abeting me, in
every issue, and I can truthfully say
I dont think there hat ever been one
iota of discord, or a difference of
opinion between ut in regard to
what wat the best policy to persue,
either for the church or the country.
Our view! were right and we have
My health is poor. Mrs. King

A merry Christmas and a

The past week has been some
thing like winter and Santa will
find all ut little folks on the
lookont tor him.
What do you want him to bring
you, Judge? Wculd you not like to
hang your stocking by the old fire
place once more and then jump in
to that good old fashioned leather
bed to dream of nuts, candy, ma
ple sugar, etc., that used to de
light our hearts in the long ago!
The older we get, the easier we
recall the days of other years. The
mention of tome household utensil,
long ago replaced by modern con
veniences, brings many memories
of the past trooping into view.
We have never yet tasted a
baked apple that had the flavor of
those we used to roast before the
roating fire in the old fireplace at
borne. And no modern oven ever
baked a loaf of bread as sweet as
the Johnny cake baked on an oak
board before an open lire.
