that he was going to the barber shop

was able to care for himself, and on
his urgent request the wife returned
to the house.

for senator is two years off. it shows
that the socialists are not as slow as
people might think they are. Brother
Bohman. if he labors for the cause as
he is exjiected to by the brother mem

the district several times over before
the nominations of candidates by the
other parties. L. S. McCabe, of this
