ST. HELENS MIST, FRIDAY. MAY 26, 1916
WEST ST. HELENS
Primary election paged without un
due excitement. Evidently some of
the candidates think that the post
office department and tho printer are
all that were benefitted by their can
didacy. Tis better to hold the job
we have than to aspiro to things too
great. It's cheering though, to re
member that ho who runs and gets
left, may live to run agaiu. The
Hughes microbe got his work in at
West St. Helens as well as other parts

An amusing affair occurred on our
streets Sunday. George Chambers,
who has not yet fully mastered the
art of properly guiding and turning
the motor wagon, attempted to back
up and turn around. After two or
three attempts, only succeeding in
killing his engine, he finally called
out: "Somebody come and take this
thing by tho tail and pull it around."
Keep at it, George. If at first you
don't succeed, try, try again.
