" Evening , Members of the Sunday school will render a very helpful and in teresting program , commemorat ing the Easter time. Bring your friends and come early and enjoy this service. Wm. Klingaman , of Woodlakc , was a pleasant caller at this office last Saturday. He is an old time democrat and is a firm believer in the principles as set forth by W. J. Bryan. We admire men of strong convictions for the right and one who does not have to wait for the national convention to take a stand before he is sure that he is right. He didn't have a dollar , he didn't have a dime. His clothes and shoes were looking just as though they'd served their time. He didn't try to kill himself to dodge misfort une's whacks. Instead he got some ashes and he filled five dozen sacks. In the paper in the morn he advertised tin polish that would put the world to scorn. He kept on advertising and now , suffice to say , he's out in California at his cottage on the bay. " Ex. There will be a meeting of Col. Wood Post , No. 208 , G. A.
