Carl A. Glover of thel wnprc abundance _ and prosperity Congregational church, who spoke "Meals Under Three Flags." Mankind hungers for religion, which hunger the church exerts Itself to satisfy, also for love, which is found in tha family relationship, and for food, which entails the economic phases of civilization, said the speaker. Rev, Mr. Glover has traveled much about the world, and he stated that he has dined In many places, In England, Scotland and on the continent of Europe, in Australia, South Africa, Hawaii and the islands of the South Seas, as well as in the United States and Canada In each place, he said, there was a distinct flavor associated with Its locality and traditions. To consider a dinner merely as a catalog of food, he said was like thinking of a church without its organ, choir and other features of the service. He then proceeded to give descriptions of the places in which he ate some meals that were out of the ordinary. A year ago last summer, while he and Mrs. Glover were motoring In the far north ol the Great Lakes region, they set out one day through the wilds from Port Arthur. Canada, north of Lake Superior. They crossed several Email lakes and roads through deep forests to reach "Charlie's" log cabin where dinner was awaiting them. As they partook of the meal of game and wholesome viands, "Charlie" told them ol the habits O f the deer, bears and other wild animals that were numerous about them, and described epl- mnkc our of R »V nation. the most favored Hflonging la airport, Jmt north of city en rmtt* 4<3 w*4M5#rpd < i n| to 'h* roft ground on part, of the 'aiiport landing flrtd snd «ut*.»d conMflf.rablp rtarrmge by rough?r.injf jihe carefully smothftd ftHrftws of th" ground as they frampft! upon tt after the recent, rains, Members of the airport com ml'.- tf« railed on the farmer*! o-s-iiins the cattle Bnd warned thftn that o repetition of Ihe occurrence wrmkl result in a stilt for damag** KgiMn-' tho owners of any livestock thai: caused trouble or expense to She airport management. « at the John Rhyw horn* on Ewt »e5pnrt Str«t In E<* Psll*.

Rugs on tho floor served as a circular stair, up which the participants wound and wound their way to the top 'of the tower, where the thug stabbed a butcher knife a foot long into the vitals of the keeper of the light. The successfully swooning wife and the vigorous .bearers of the defunct Ughthouseman provided acting of deeply emotional and strenuous physical intensity.

The family home haa been In Sterling for thc past eight years and Virginia grew from childhood to youth among the young people of this city, endearing herself to all who knew her by her rare abilities and wlnsomencss of aplrit. ! As n senior in the Sterling township high school she was popular among all the students, although her falling health prevented her engaging in many of the extra-curricular activities for which by nature and talent she was peculiarly fitted. That she kept up her studies well in spite of the handicap of illness Indicates her brightness of intelligence and her Indomlnable will to progress. In St. John's Lutheran church, of which she was an active member, she was a real force and influence in spite of youth and physical weakness. She taught In the beginners' department for two years and for the post two years, until the final breakdown of her health, she was a valued member of the church choir, her mezzo-soprano voice being of unusual strength and quality. Beside her grief stricken foster parents, she is survived by one sister, Allleen, who was also adopted by another family in childhood, and who is now Mrs. Carl Krotz of Villa Ridge, near Cairo, 111. In respons* to word that her sister was growing weaker rapidly, Mrs. Krotz hurried to Sterling and reached hero last evening, accompanied by her little baby daughter The waiting sister remained conscious and they visited together for nearly half an hour before weakness terminated the Interview.
