In his view of the causes and the out

might be asked to explain how it
was that California, a State which was
no longer sovereign, could legislate in

Fox said It would be best for all of us
to keep him quiet. 1 said, 'All right,

that night and told him Fox had made
the proposition for a payment of $2,000
to send Sipp away. Sweeney said he
didn't like that kind of work. I told
him It was better for him and me than
to have to raise more money later on.
He said he'd see. 1 told him Fox told
nie they were elllng 'murder watch'
and that something would have to be
done right away.
"1 saw Sweeney again on Friday

Again over the objections of the de

was gone over In detail at the Hartl

Cleaning and Summer Storage
of Floor Coverings
Thorough cleaning and storing of Floor Coverings
during the Summer not only improve their appearance
when relaid in the Fall, but add to their wearing qualities,
Summer storage also affords an opportunity to have
Floor Coverings altered to fit other rooms, for which
work we employ skilled labor, assuring complete satis
' faction. It is advisable to specify the date for relaying,
so that there will be no delay when Floor Coverings
are wanted.
Our charges for prompt, efficient service of this kind
are very moderate and include insurance against loss
by fire. ,
