Yale Stores To Close

The business men of Yale fol-
lowing the custom established by
neighboring towns have also de
cided to close one-half day of each
tveek. Therefore, from June 20th
tto August 31st all the business
pl'accs in Yale except the drug
st(ores and garages will close at
1:30 for the remainder of the
d;i y. This necessitates a change
in) our "open nights," therefore
alter June i:otn until lurincr no-
' ice the business places of Yale
will be open on Wednesday and
Saturday nights only, except those
places mentioned.
By Order of Committee
The St. Clair County 2nd Dis
trict Sunday School Convention,
held in the Church of Christ, Far
go, on June 2nd, was one of the
very best S. S. conventios ever
held in that district. The church
did not begin to seat the crowd
that gathered to listen to the in
teresting program that was per
fectly rendered.
II. R. Moore, state president,
was the main speaker of the day.
In Mr. Moore's address he showed
very clearly the importan t part
that the Sunday school must play

Papers and addresses by Miss
Mclntyre, Mrs. Moore, Rev. Bur

bridge were greatly enjoyed while
those who gave recitations and
helped in the singing did them
selves proud.
The convention voted to hold a
joint picnic at Nye's grove, on
July 4th. This promises to be
one of the greatest events ever
put on in this section. A fine pro
gram is being prepared with
Matt Mullen as main speaker of
the day. There will also bo a
good baseball game and every
thing will be done to give the
children a real fourth of July.

Friday evening, June 2nd, and
as our copy of the "write-up" was
inadvertently omitted from last
week's Expositor, we are going to
make only a brief mention of it
this week as it has now become
ancient history and stale news is
worse than none.
Our little city is always inter
ested in all school work and the
home talent plays are certainly
well patronized. Tho Juniors
had selected a clever play to work
on, that of "Oh, Clarence" one of
Booth Tarkington's best.
Some of the character takers
were perhaps a little stage struck,
it being their first appearance in
a professional way and others re
quired some prompting, but for
the most part, all took their cast
ings very well and the play went
off very nicely.
The specialties between the
acts were bright and entertaining
and the Yale orchestra did fine
work throughout the evening.
Bills are now being distributed
advertising some real fast horse
races at Yale for July Fourth,
and those in charge' of the doing3
have received lots of encourage
ment from owners ot last ones
from many towns in the Thumb.
The track at Piversidj will be
put in good fast shape, and lovers
of the harness races will be treat
ed to some real fast events. As
an extra attraction, there will be
a real, fast base ball game, be
tween the Yale City Team and the
boys from Fargo.
This will be a full afternoon of
good clean sport. Below we pub
lish a list of the racing events:
Green Race $50.00
B Class $125.00
Frec-for AH $150.00
There will be no entrance fee,
and free hay and straw will be
furnished to all entering horses.
All races will be governed by
American Association rules.

Threaten Retaliation If Forced
To" Pay Fines
(From Times-Herald)
The so-called sporting circles
of the city are somewhat agitated
over the announcement of Prose
cuting Attorney Henry Baird that
the five gamblers, who were re
cently sentenced to serve 15 days
in jail and pay a fine of $150 must
come across with their fines or
possibly serve another term in
jail. After serving of their sen
tences the gamblers did not pay
into the court the $150 fine which
was also assessed against them.
After waiting a reasonable
length of time for the gamblers
to pay their fines, Prosecuting At
torney Baird sent them notices to
the elfect that unless the fines
were paid the necessary steps
would be taken to enforce the
Word was returned to Prose
cuting Attorney Baird that if the
payment of the fines was enforc
ed, "that the gamblers would re
taliate in some way," but the
specific nature of the retaliation
was not outlined.
n investigation was started,
?nd it has been learned from good
uthority that tin .gamblers and
their friends intend to take an
ictive part in politics for the
purpose of "getting" those who
were instrumental in sending
them to jail. One of the gamblers
who has been active in spreading
uopaganda c.s to what the sport-
ng element intends to do at the
next election is credited with the
statement to the effect that "we
are going after every ofiicial who
in any way had anything to do
with sending us to jail." Just at
present Attorney Henry Baird
and Judge Harvey Tappan are
the particular targets of the gam
bling and sporting element.
There appears to be no secret
ibout the activity in organizing
the sporting element of the city
to take an active part in the com
ing political campaigns. The five
gamblers who were sentenced to
jail for 15 days and fined ' $150
apiece are William Reams, Geo.
Poppas, Jerry Faulkner, Edward
Smith and Pete Williams. Smith,
it is understood, intends to pay
his fine without protest, and is
not interested in the so-called
political activities which are in
the process of organization.

Twenty-Eight Graduates
Receive Their Diplomas
The last function of 1922 grad
uating days for Yale High school
was held on Thursday evening
last in the Auditorium.
The stage was tastefully dec
orated with flowers, and the four
teen young ladies and fourteen
young men looked very womanly
in white gowns and manly in gray
suits as they faced the audience.
Superintendent A. T. Green
mean, Fred Dale Wood, the speak
er of the evening, Rev3, Martin,
pastor of the Presbyterian church
and Stroup of the Methodist Prot
estant church, also occupied seats
on the stage.
Speaking to the subject, 'The
Story of an Ideal," ,Mr. Wood
quoted the following from St.
Paul, and built his address
around it: "This one thing 1
do. Forgetting those things
which are behind and reaching
forth unto those things which are
before, I press toward the mark
for the prize." He impressed on
the members of the graduating
class and the audienco the beau
ty of definitcness in one's ideals,
remarking lather quaintly, as an
aside, "if you are determined to
be a horse thief, be a good one,
or be none." After elaborating
the idea that nothing is guinea
by promiscuity and airnlessncss
of thought or action, lv; defined
the word, ideal, as Webster de
fines it,, "a standard of perfec
tion," but said it meant much
more than that.
"I believe," said Mr. Wood,
"that all of us would have a bet
ter and clearer concept of our
duties and obligations in life if
we only. had a deeper understand
ing of the words we use. A ma
jority of us acquire our language
by absorbtion rather than by in-!
vestigation. That is. one of the J
reasons we go wrong, many times, j
in our application of the word, j
ideal. An ideal is not some high,,
intangible, almost unreachable!
thing to be striven for, ii is 1
something to work by, or with.'
"It is an instrument of accom-
plishment, a tool, just as truly ai
tool as the plaile of. thy carpen-j
tcr, the trowel o'f the mason, the;
stick and rule of the printer arc
tools, and if we will get and hold :
that definition of an ideal we can ;
better understand its application ,
to the affairs of our every-day '
lives." i
"All people are governed by j
their ideals. If those ideals are j
high and exalted, so will the one I
having such ideals live a high and I
exalted life. If one's "ideals are!
on a lower plane, one must, per
force, live one's life on that level,
until the standard ol ideals is
"It is trite, but very true, that
no one ever gets out of life any
thing that is not first put into life.
If you put in sweetness, kindness,
unselfishness, helpfulness, proper
energy and righteous ambition.
all those things will be returned
unto you a million fold. On the
other hand, if you put in grouch
iness, distemper, meanness of
soul, pessimism and fault find
ing, you may be sure those things,
too, will be returned to you
many times increased. You can
not gossip about your neighbor
without expecting your neighbor
to gossip about you. You cannot
destroy character in others and
except to escape the attack on
your character others will make.
"Whether your lives become
successes or failures will depend
on you, the individual, and not on
your neighbor or friend. As your
ideals are, so will your life be. I
congratulate the people of Yale
on these bright young men and
women of the graduating class. I
believe the nation is safe in the
hands of these and such as these
and that these young folks here
will, in their own time, take up
their burdens of faith-and carry
them onward and forward, to the
glory heights, better, maybe, than
you and I, their elders, have ever
done. I have faith in the youth
of America, and I bid you have
faith in the members of this grad
uating class, who will soon go
forth into the hurly-burly of the
great world, carrying aloft the
shining banners of patriotism
and good citizenship, because of
the ideals with which they are
