Noyes Insurance Agency Inc. CITIZENS BANK BLOCK City of Newport Celebrales THREE THOUSAND PEOPLE WITNESS THE FINEST PARADE EVER HELD ELOQUENT ADDRESS IN EVENING BY SHERBROOKE PASTOR These are times when we must make every thing go as far as possible. We cannot buy many things that were formerly purchased very freely, therefore we should take the best possible care of what we now have. Buildings already in existence should be put in order, properly roofed, and painted and varnished sufficiently to keep them in a service able condition. ..'..,--; Shelter should be provided for all farm tools, live stock, crops, manufactured products, and every thing that requires shelter for preservation. It is much cheaper to use our roofings for shelter than it is to let the things go without shelter. Don't let anything worth while go to waste. Roofing produces the necessary shelter without any waste. When we make this roofing we are not using anything of con sequence needed to win the war, and if you stay within the limitations of the Government Pledge there is no risk of overstepping the best policy. THE PECK COMPANY Notice to T axpayers The wires into the city of Newport began to get hot about 3 o'clock Mon day morning bringing the first news of the signing of the armistice terms uc 1 o'clock Washington time. . Mayor Emery was called on the wire at 4 a. m and received the news. The local telephone wires were busy all the morning calling those who had sons in the service and giving them the good news. i As Newport city celebrated last Thursday what they expected was the closing of the war, which after , wards proved an error, this time they were slow to act until they were sure the news was right. As hour after hour passed nearly all were convinced that they should celebrate, and a meeting of some of the business men and mayor and . council wrere called at the Y. M. I. C. t rooms at 10 o'clock in the forenoon to ! form plans for a celebration that the 'city would be proud of. ! Mayor Emery was elected to act as i chairman of the meeting. It was vot ed to have a celebration Tuesday so to give proper time to arrange a pro gram. The chair as authorized to appoint an executive committee of five with power to appoint other com mittees and arrange all details of the celebration. The following commit tee were appointed: E. J. Smith, Rev. Father Bastien, E. F. Humph rey, Rev. George Pomfrey and E. A. Hamilton. Nearly two hours war spent in raal :ng out the plans. Late in the afternoon the following proc lamation was issued. PROCLAMATION Whereas, Tuesday, November 12th, will be observed by the citizens of the city of Newport as a day of Thanksgiving and celebration; I, therefore, declare said day to be a holiday, and earnestly request that all places of business be closed for that clay. , Dated this 11th day of November, 1 A.

This was the city truck, a deer appearing from the fir trees and Ray Mooney with the bob-cat, in the rear was a circular saw that produced noise enough for all occasions. The parade from end to end was one,grand display of flags of all the allies, every order and school carried their banners and service flags, and was nearly one and one-half miles in length. There were 1000 school children in the parade and nearly 1000 more peo ple represented in the various orders. Everyone was surprised even the com mittee in charge to witness the size of it gotten up in six: hours time. It was a credit to the new city. The marshals were nearly stagger ed in lining them up for the start as they came from evciy direction, and it was " a great credit to them that they were able to handle the situation-and start such a parade within 30 minutes from the time scheduled for it to start. The executive committee called on several to assist them in getting out thc different orders and making other arrangements and they appreciate the kind of response and the verv suc cessful work that they did. The j short notice, may we as a city look committee knew they needed another f orward to more of these get-togeth-band for a parade of this length, but i ers, bring the people to our city and did not have time to arrange for it. During the parade the streets were packed with people, autos and teams, the street in some places barely wide enough to let the parade pass. Soon after 7 o'clock people began to gather at Lane's opera house to enjoy the evening program, -and a; half hour before the time for the j program was to begin the house was I nearly full, and at 8 o'clock people j were standing, 800 assembled to listen i to Ellcry G.
