Now, after four months of receiving carloads of stamped envelopes to help out an ever running behind postal department the transportation becomes illegal with the close of the contest, not at the beginning. • * * Clarence Jones wield* a hot weld- Ing torch at the Heard blacksmith shop. For years, day and night, he did the same at the Norton Machine shop. Few minor burns and accidents occurred at that time. But the other day when doing a ladles job of mixing paste for paper hang- Ing Jonesy was the recipient of a scorched and painful scalding which laid him up for the present. • • • Oftentimes one sees and hears an airplane flying low over the east part of the residential district. The pilot is a brother of Mrs. Luke Linnan who carries mall between the Twin Cities and southern points and takes this way of greeting his sister. • * • My. my! South of town four miles, Sunday morning, at four- thirty, early motorists or those stay- Ing out late, saw two local married women trudging wearily homeward. • * • A Rood crowd wan out for the Country Club dance Monday evening.

Not so now, the present police force needs commending: for the way they handle the increasing situation. Oftentimes the force has its pockets laden with car keys taken away from those who have Imbibed too much. They are the sole judge as to when the keys are returned to the driver. Many a man has come back sober and thanked them, and there Is no distinction as to class, a hated idetv to mention. When the government Roes into the business of selling; liquors that get a man drunk it should hire men to take care of them.
