Blanks For Old Soldier

Clyde H. Tavenner, Washington corre

a number of blanks to The Argus, and
they may be had on application at the

Mr. Tavenner has addressed the fol

V. S. Capitol, Washington, D. C.
Dear Sir and Friend: I am enclosing
you herewith a blank for making appli
cation for an increase of pension un
der the new law.
If you come under the provisions of
this law, fill out the blank before an
official qualified to administer oaths,
and return to me, and I will 6ee to it
personally that same is immediately
filed with the pension department and
looked after until the increase is grant
ed. This service will, of course, be
performed without one cent of cost to
you, and, furthermore, I am glad to be
in a position to help the old soldiers,
of whom my father, J. E. Tavenner of
Cordova, 111., is one.
I also desire to give to the old sol
diers of the Fourteenth congressional
district a sample of the kind of service
they will receive from their represen
tative in congress if I am elected this
fall. This is merely the kind of rep
resentation the people are entitled to
here in Washington, and the kind they
have a right to expect.

the Issues on which the Modern Wood

Head Clerk Hawes in a communica

society urges upon them advertising
in the local newspapers whenever they
have on hand a campaign for new
members, an entertainment, or any
other enterprise that is to be brought
to public attention. He recommends
the local newspaper as the best pos
sible advertising medium for the local

however, and in the work of informing
the local camps concerning the reai

men of America since the meeting of
the head camp at Buffalo, N. Y., In
June, 1911, have issued about five
pieces of literature for each dollar of
the national debt. The list includes
official reports and all documents bear
