Sinnot, the gentlemanly and skillful
press erector of that company, for getting us started off right with the new Miehle. And so, while not wish I ing to appear "big feeling" at this time, we must confess that we are rather proud of our outfit.

Three years later it was made a semi-month ly with the same number of pages, In 1901 was converted into a weekly only Be?" and the size of the page has not been enlarged, but four more pages have been added. There has been a lot of "uphill" work connected with the publication, and many discouraging things have had to be met and overcome.

And now on this anniversary day, we acknowledge our appreciation for all favors that have been shown us and the many good friends who have given ussubstantial assistance. While remembering these, we shall hope to merit and receive a large measure of success, as the years come and go. LOCAL AND PERSONAL. J. H.

Some claim this cau he done by tying a string around the foreleg, just below the knee, or around the ear close to the head.
