LONG VIEW LOOP
REALITY AT LAST
Four Car in Service, Two Go
ing in Either Direction All
ice uong view loop is at least a
reality. A patient wait of. years
has finally ended and it Is now
possible for resldenU living on
the hill district to take a Long
Mew car going either direction and
either go home or down town as the
case may be. Beginning at 6:40 this
morning, cars began making the loop,
two going in each direction. Robert
Thompson and Keating Stauduhar,
both residents of the bluff section
went around the loop aa the first pas
sengers, having got up at 6:30 this
morning with that end In view.
Long View cars should now give bet
ter service than that afforded in the
past. Residents on the hill will soon
learn that they can take the car going
either direction and the result will be
a diminution of the heavy traffic on
the west section of the line and an in
crease In the traffic on the east sec

For thla Is thankworthy, If a man
for conscience toward God endure
grief, suffering wrongfully.
For what glory la it, if, when ye
be buffeted tor your faults, ye shall
take It patiently? but if, when ye do
well, and suffer for It, ye take it pa
tiently, thla is acceptable with God.
For even hereunto were ye called:
because ChrlBt also suffered for us,
leaving ua an example, that ye should
follow his steps:
Who did no sin, neither waa guile
found in his mouth:
Who, when he was reviled, reviled
not again; when he suffered, he
threatened not; but committed him
self to him that Judgeth righteously
Who hla own self bare our sins in
his own body on the tree, that we, be

righteousness; by whose stripes ye

TO FUND RECEIVED
The Information published last
night that The Argus Santa Claus
will be here again thla Christmas,
brought a prompt response. George
Wagner this morning started off the
fund with a handsome contribution
and with the hope that even more
mooev would be secured than last
year and that the good done would
be correspondingly greater. Inciden
tally Mr. Wagner waa the first to re
spond to the call last year which
means that for two years now he has
come to the front as soon as a way
was pointed out by which he could
help make Christmas have a real
meaning to some child or children
who would otherwise miss the joys
