Time to Re-tire? (Buy Fieki HENRY THE HOPE PIONEER GILBERTSON Henry Gilbertson, a pioneer resi dent of Steele county, passed away suddenly at his home in Portland on Wednesday morning, April 26,1922. The cause of his death was heart trouble and the end came without warning while he was doing his usual chores .around the house. Except for an attack of the same trouble a number of years ago, he has enjoyed and exceptionally sturdy physique, and he has played no small part in the development of his community. Mr. Gilbertson was born in 'Begna dalen, Sondre Aurdal, Valders, Nor way, on July 13, 1854 and he attained the age of 67 years, 9 months and 13 days. Together with his brother, Anders, he emigrated to the United States in the spring of 1876. Their destination was Dane county, Wiscon sin. Here they resided two years, and then moved to Grand Meadow, Minnesota. They were joined in the spring of '79 by their brother,' Anton, and decided to go west and homestead in what was then Dakota territory. Making their way on foot from Fargo, they filed on land In what is now Primrose township, Steele Co.. and here the deceased at once began to provide a home. In the fall of 1882 he was united in marriage to Miss Oline Wold, of Bang, Valders, Norway, who has since faithfully shared life's vicissitudes with him, and who still survives him. This union was blessed with ten children, all of whom were reared to maturity. The funeral services were held on Saturday, April 29th, at the home in Portland, at the Bruflat Church and at the Bang church, where the de ceased had long been a member. The remains were laid at rest in the Bang cemetery, beside those of his daugh ter Nellie, who died in 1905. Surviving him are his raithful wife seven sons and two daughters: Gus tave and Emil, of Finley Albert and Joseph, of Minneapolis Theodore, now teaching at Sharon Halfdan and Oliver, in charge of the home farm Clara, until recently of Kalispell, Mont., and Mrs. Ida Verwest, of £ick ert. He is also survived by seven brothers and three sisters. Mr. Gilbertson was always a pub lic-spirited man and took an active part in religious, political, education al andmoral interests of his commun ity, county and state. TEACHER'S EXAMINATIONS Teachers' examinations will' be held in the office of the County Su perintendent of Schools, on the sec ond floor of the First National Bank at Finley,- on Thursday and Friday, May 11th and 12th, 1922.

Owing to the favorable weather con ditions the wheat is coming along in fine shape. There have been a num ber of local showers but no great amount of rain fell. THE CUT-PRICE MAN There are some people in this world who are self-confessed bar gain hunters. They see virtue in a commodity only when the price can be arranged. They will favor you with a sly, insinuating wink as they say, "No, siree- I never pay the list price for anything. I make my i-wn-terms or I don't buy." That's what they say, isn't it? Investigate such a man on a per sonal basis and you will find that he wears an athletic "type" union suit— with a sweat-shop label in the neck band. The webbing has broken away at the waist. He smokes "ten cent straights special today for six cents apiece." The aroma is suggestive of a mortor man's glove. He lives in a house covered with "just as good" roofing. Sun and rain find access through a hundred cracks. He plays golf with a Glory dimple second." His drives average all of ninety yards. He carries a "take me home for 74 cents" dollar watch. He arrives home 25 minutes behind the dinner hour. And so on to the end of the chap ter. He has .made his "own terms." He lives by his "own terms" and prob ably dies by them. If you give him the opportunity, he will make his "own terms" with you. Then—after you have cut the list price—you will have to pay the pen alty. —Advertising and Selling. Child's Idea of Rain.

LEFT MATEKIAL ADVANTAGES Physicians, Civil Officer* Artist* Preachers and Teachers In Party 8ettllng In St. Louia and Missouri Wilds. Three-quarters of a century ago a band of faithful men and women cam* to our shore to found a religious coun try, of the Lutheran persuasion, in America and became instrumental In founding the Evangelical Lutheran Syn od of Missouri, Ohio and other states. This body is celebrating the seventy fifth anniversary of Its organization during the present year. The organiza tion was effected at Chicago on Mon day, April 26,1847. The causes back of this emigration must be understood from conditions prevailing in the homeland of these •migrants. It was not, as usual, the pressure of unfavorable economic con ditions in overpopulated Germany that induced them to leave the fatherland and seek a new home and better living conditions in America. The emigrants who ten years after their landing in St Louis took the lead In organizing the Missouri Synod, did not come to America as beggars. Many quitted their homeland at considerable sacri fice of material advantages. Their party consisted not only of Saxon weavers and stocking makers, but there were among them merchants, men of the medical profession, Jurists, officers of the civil government, paint ers, etc. These people could hope for very little material advantages in the new country in which they came to settle. Their reason for coming to America was an entirely ideal, or spiritual, one. They were looking for a home for their religious convictions, where they could,- without hindrance from the government, worship God ac •cording to the dictates of their con science and propagate their faith. German Religious Intolerance They were not allowed to do this In their home country. Already long be fore the emigration scheme was ma tured among their leaders they had suffered considerable because of their religious convictions. They hailed from parts of Germany in which, owing to the ravages of pietism and rational ism, Lutheran confessional fidelity had become a rare thing. In 1817 the then Prussian king, Frederick III., Issued a union-edict by which the amalgama tion of the two parts of the Protestant Church, the Lutheran and the Reform ed, was to be effected. Prior to that time these two parties had existed as separate bodies, maintaining their separate confession, churches and re ligious activities. The edict of Fred erick HI. was unquestionably part of the Prussian government's scheme for the centralization of power. It wrought a good deal of havoc throughout Ger many, where church and state were not separate as in the United States. Most of the other German countries Imitated the policy of the Prussian king and Issued similar union-edicts. But even in countries like Saxony, where this was not done, the union tendency was the dominant tendency in state and church. As a result, both Lutherans and Reformed who still ad hered to their confessional principles, but mostly the former, had to suffer a great deal from the Intolerant govern ments. Permission for organizing a Free Church, independent of state con trol, could not be obtained, although many attempts to get such a permis sion were made. Decide on Emigration Under these precarious, provoking conditions the faithful members of the Lutheran Church began to think of leaving their home country and find ing new homes on the other side of the Atlantic. The thought of emigration was cherished for many years before It could be executed, for even the per mission to emigrate could not be ob tained from the Intolerant govern ments in Germany. One of the men, who afterwards became the acknowl edged leader of the Missouri Synod, Dr. Walther, writes regarding those days as follows: "How gladly would i.the believing Lutheran pastor and layman have surrendered everything If they could have obtained the per mission to separate from the grievous ly corrupted and apostate State Church and to organize themselves Into a Lutheran Free Church. But it was absolutely hopeless to think of such an official grant at that time." They saw, accordingly, that their only way of escape from the tyranny to which their consciences were subject ed, which became more Intolerable as time wore on and which threatened to stifle their Ufe of faith, was to emi grate to a country In which religious liberty was guaranteed. The leadership under which the Saxon immigration that came to America In 1837 was organized prdved inefficient soon after their landing at New Orleans and later on at St. Louis. Unspiritual elements were discovered In this land of emigrants, but the bulk of the emigrants were sincere, con scientious Christians. The church body which they helped to uriruiil/.e seventy-five years ago lias exerted nn POSTAL IMPROVEMENT WEEK IS OBSERVED May 1 Sees Inaugurated First General Campaign of Kind in Service. Without the Postal Service, business would languish in a day, and be at a standstill in 'a week. Public opinion would die of dry rot. Sectional hatred or prejudice only would flourish, and narrow-mindedness thrive. It Is the biggest distinctive business in the world and it comes nearer to the Innermost Interests of a greater num ber of men and women than any other Institution on earth. No private busi ness, however widespread, touches so many lives so often or sharply no church reaches into so many souls, flutters so many pulses, has so many human beings dependent on Its min istrations. "Postal Improvement Week" has been set for May 1, by the Postmaster General. This is the first general cam paign of Its kind In the Postal Service for several decades. Business men and their organizations, large users of the mall, newspapers, motion pictures, advertisers, and the entire organiza tion of 326,000 postal workers are to be enlisted in this country-wide campaign of interest In postal Improvements. Your help Is vital. Address your let ters plainly with pen or typewriter. Qive street address. Spell out name of State, don't abbreviate. Put your return address In the upper left hand corner of envelope (not on the back) and always look at your letter before dropping In the mall to see If It is properly addressed. This care in the use of the mails is for your benefit and speeds up the dispatch and delivery of mall matter. If you have any complaints of poor service make them to your postmaster. He has instructions to investigate them and report to the department. O E S It sticks in human relations like postage stamps on letters. The POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT ex pects it to be used by its postmasters and employees in dealing with the public. Help them in its use beginning with POSTAL IMPROVEMENT WEEK, May 1-6,1922. A N O WITHOUT STREET ADDRESS YOUR MAIL IS DELAYED AT OFFICE OF DELIVERY The Dead Letter Office has been In existence ever since Ben Franklin started our postal service. Even then people addressed mall to Mr. Ezekiel Smlthers, "Atlantic Coast," and ex pected Ben to know Just where Zeke lived. Perhaps they had Zeke's address In letters up in the garret, maybe a chest full of 'em, but then it was easier to let Ben bunt Zeke. Today people are addressing letters to John Smith, New York, N. Y., or Chicago, 111., thinking Uncle Sam can locate him, which is Just as incomplete as was Zeke's ad dress of yore. The Postoffice Depart ment asks you to put the number and street in the address. It helps you. How do you expect the Postal Clerk to know whether you mean Trlntdad, California, or Trinidad, Colorado? ALWAYS SPELL OUT THE NAME OF THE STATE IN FULL IN THE ADDRESS. "MORE BUSINE8S IN GOVERNMENT" This apt phrase was used In Presi dent Harding's first message to Con gress and applies particularly In postal management where postmasters are being impressed with the fact that they are managers of local branches of the biggest business In the world. HERE COMES A STRANGER1 Let's make our post office look neat, Mr. Postmaster. Straighten up the rural letter box, Mr. Farmer. Tidy up some, Mr. Rural Carrier. First impressions are lasting. Maybe Mr. Stranger, hiking notice of these Im provements, will come back, bringing you benefits. Start these with "POS TAL LMI1ROVEMBNT WHSKK" May 1-6. HUMANIZING THE POSTAL SERVICE "There Is no unimportant person or part of our service. It Is a total of human units and their co-operation Is the key to Its success. In Its last analysis, postal duties Are accommo dations performed for our neighbors and friends and should be so regarded, rather than as a hired service per formed for nn absentee employer."— Postmaster General Hiibert Work.
