appointees, to which Mr- Newman replied

Mr. Stone's position vacant because of
the tact that he had been absent from
the city for more than 10 days without
a leave of absence. It is understood
that Mr. Stone has taken up his resi
dence in Taeoma.

Either a Piano or Player will make the lonely night, the dull cares, the education of your children a blessing to
your home. Your next door neighbor has some kind of music—that's why the family always seems to enjoy life;
that's why their children are so smart and nice mannered. Your children are just as clever, but they aren't and
don't seem so to you, and it's because they don't have the pleasure of your next door neighbor's children.
