Rogers was stuck in the mud five hours and last Sat urday he was stuck for over an hour. The preacher was along, so Charles was pretty good with his language. We were sorry to hear that Mr. Edgar Sparks had his hand hurt. with a planting machine. In try ing to remove a weed which was caught in the machine, his hand was pulled in and he lost part of two fingers of his left hand. Dr. Herring attended him and sent him home again with abmdaged hand. Guess hs was thinking too much about that big boy that ar rived and didn't look after him self properly. Don't let those lit tle things interfere with you Edgar, Big Day at Tolar on the FOURTH On July 4th Tolar is going to have a fine time. There is going to be speaking, roping, baseball, and plenty of good things to eat. Everybody plan to go to Tolá on the Fourth and have a goad old fashioned time.

It is not known yet who are going to be the speakers but you can depend upon it they will be worth hearing, and the games also will be worth seeing.

Spring brings with it a new coat of nature, doing; away with the weather worn appearance left by the winter months. As good citizens we lend our assistance toward this goal . . . Cleanliness, sanitation, beautificatinn, conservation and safety are all civio synonyms. They symbolize good citi zenship. Cleaning: up and painting, up rids homes and bueinepp houses of an accumulation of rubbish which is a long step toward prevention of fires. Though fires cost our nation $250,000,000, yet the deterioration from lack of painting is much greater. A fresh coat of paint will not only add quality to the life of a building but will give it a more cheerful appearance. Lumber prices have fallen and building is now possible upon an eoortomio basis. Rents have not decreased, and will not as lonp as the country is a million homes short. The situation offers a splendid opportunity for the invest or and to the rent payer. Build now and take advantage of it. LONE STAR LUMBER COMPANY.
