They knew His features. His voice, walk. His gestures, and could not be a if His ho walk. His gestures, and could not be deceived.

On the pavement hurrying in the same direction were stately mat rons, giggling girls, business men, rol licking youths and of course, the ever present small buy. All were carrying bonis or some equal!) harmonious, musical instrument. As the train roil ed in and the astonished young couplf saw what was being done in their ho nor,jj tcv accepted the- ovation in thf -spiYr-.'H widen it was given, and took their places in the "coach of honor" with smiling faces. The procession marched "down street" amid showers of confetti, toot ing of horns, blazing red lights, and yells of irrepressible "young America."

And the Good Master knows the Continental Fibre Co. cares nothing for such stuff. assure you no my dear Editor, have you thought what a new industry looking for a congenial, up-to-date town to locate in would think of such effusions? A warm welcome at the hands of such as Citizen await them, would you ex pect any such to locate with us, and do you think a clean, reputable up-to date paper, as you promised us the POST should be, should blast our town by publishing such letters?
