L0NG, loud and clew the chorus swells-.
The voices of the years.
Each ringing with achievement grand
And calling to the spheres
To look and view
One loyal, true,
Who snatched from Tyranny a land-
The fairest neath the sun
And started Progress on her way
Brave, noble Washington.
IN him War found a champion
Courageous, dauntless, true.
His heart of steel was tender, too%
And sympathy it knew.
And friend And foe,
When lying low,
Alike to him were brother men,
His fellows, every one.
War was but Mercy's path when led
The soldier, Washington.
GILBERT STUART'S WASHINGTON.
T HE chanting years sing Peace today
Sweet is the theme and grand
And sound the praise of him who first
Enticed her to this land.
Her light more clear
Shines forth each year,
To all the world a beacon bright,
Hope's never setting sun.
All nations voice their gratitude
To our George Washington.
THOUGH first in war and first in peace,
Yet more than this was he.
We call him "Father," for to us
He gave sweet Liberty.
Lift loud your song,
0 years, prolong
The anthem, and while time endures
Proclaim the victory won! l
First in the hearts of all true men
Aye lives our Washington.

fet.ed at Lewistown in the trial of E.
Arthur Froembling, charged with
grand larceny in stealing some $60
from the Power Mercantile comprny,
than there was in t he linton ,,ase.
The court room is crowded every day
and :ludge Cheadle has been com
pelled to refuse admittance to any
more than could find seats.
Froembling was formerly c hief ac
countant for the Power Mercantile
company and handled all the cash It
is claimed that his thefts will amount
t o several thousands and extends back
over a period of se\:eral years. Mr.
and Mrs. Froembling were prominent
in social and chu'ch circles, and were
popu lar with a large number of people.
Froenmbllng is represented by
O('Dell, McConnell and E. F. Smith,
of Lewistown, while Ray E. Ayre
and O. W. Belden are condtc:ing the
prosecution for the state. So far
nothing has been heard except the
