THE WEEKLY CALEDONIAN, WEDNESDAY, JULY 16, 1919
WEST DANVILLE NEWPORT TOWN NEWS BARNET WHEELOCK W. D. PELLEY PUBLISHING CO., Inc. St. Jolinsbury, Vermont Knit; ret at the .St. Jolinsbury I'ostoffico us mail matter of the seooud class TKRMS OP St;i!S('llIi"nON ix Months 7;"ic One Year to any Address $1.00 Editorial Life's Dreary Path John I), is 80 this week. But come right down to it who cares? Yes, Woodrow, we've got the same old cut. Most every man has one automo bile tire he brags about. What a joyous feeling you have when you screw down the cap on a full tank of gasolene. Now they're shipping booze into Rutland by freight. Somethings the matter with that town! Most all us men admire the wife that likes to get out in the open and rough it. Those lawyers conducting that Ford libel suit evidently know a good thing when they see it. It's actually quieted down to the point where Mutt & Jeff is the most attractive thing in the paper. A White River item is headed: "Auto Hit!", Tree in Unusual Acci dent." Where's that reporter been all his life? Wonder what sort of thoughts go thru the Kaiser's mind as he lays in the dark waiting to drop off to sleep? "Look hero," says he over the wire to the harassed editor, "do you know that notice of my death has appeared in print?' And the editor was unkind enough to ask: "That so? Whero are you telephoning from?" Snap. Bang. Boom. The lid is off. Our congratulations to the oFurth of July committee. They put over a big job in a big way. President Wilson is "at sea" over the Fourth. Well that's not extra ordinary. The one who doesn't make a big noise tomorrow is not paying a fit ting tribute to the boys who faced death to make the world safe for De mocracy. We offer a reward of ?1,000 to the person who will show us a prettier decorated or more patriotic town in the United States than St. Johns bury tomorrow. One of the big differences of the present 4th of July compared with those of years ago is that we don't have to publish a long list of the dead and injured the next day. Might be something doing, if Hank Ford took a notion to buy the Chi cago Tribune just to fire the editors. Old man von Hindenburg steps under the spotlight to say, if they want to stand him against a wall and shoot him, he's ready. THE TEST THAT TELLS There is only one real test for a ccugh remedy, and that is use. S. M. Oliver, Box 192, R. F. D. C, Greens boro, S. C, writes: "Foley Honey and Tar is just fine. I keep it all the time in my family and do not expect to be without it as long as I can get it." It relieves hay fever, asthma, coughs, colds, croup and bronchial affections by covering the inflammed, irritated surfaces with a soothing, healing combination of time-tried, re lable pure, harmless medicines.
