Goodrick, while doing Red Cross work, among other things knit a sweater in which she pinned a short note after the sweater was completed. The incident had been forgotten by her until yes terday when Frank Turney called her up and said that his son, Hiram, who is in France with the rank of sergeant, had written him stating that he had received a sweater 2n which he had found a ncte from Mrs. Goodrick, and asked him to inform her of the fact. With a million and more sweaters having gone from this country it is interesting to note that this particular sweater should have come into the hands of an Antigo boy.—Antigo Journal.
