No. 22 ELEVEN HILDEEnAh'DS AT MLDEBKAHD FEDERAL COURT CON VENED LAST MONDAY UNVEILING TO TAKE PLACE ON MAY CITY COUNCIL MET ... LA.UT TUESDAY NICIIT ATHLETIC AND ORATORICAL MEET SPECIAL ELECTION 20 tor Lo:m issue Postmaster Hildebrand, of Hildebrand was a Cape visitor Monday and while here he called our attention to the fact that the Herald should issue a defy to any paper in the country to produce a record equal to the one held by the Herald at hi3 postoffice. We have a list of thirty-six subscribers at that place (which represents nearly the entire voting strength of the town) and eleven of them bear the name of the postoifice Hildebrand. They are as fol lows: D. C. Hildebrand, Jos. I. Hildebrand. Elam D. Hildebrand. Martin Hildebrand, Anton Hilde brand. D. D. Hildebrand, Ira Hildebrand. H. A. II. Hilde brand. Marion Hildebrand, Jos ephHildebrand and George M. Hildebrand. It would possibly be an easy matter to find an equal number of Smiths or Joneses in a large city but we cannot conceive of any place in the country where a newspaper circulating in ' a town the size of Hildebrand could produce a like number of persons of the same name on their list. The Hildebrand family is one of the pioneer families of the county and is highly respected and prosperous.
