Get ready now. * i m A cozy little retreat for an evening's outing and a cooling off would be the midget park beneath the water tower. It is beautfiul, well cared for. flowery and comfortable. * * • The boys at the White Rose service station back of the Security State bank give an added service worth commending. They take chamois and sponge and wash windshield and windows of all the cars parked near their station. Sometimes a block away going from car to car whether a customer or not they can be seen plying the cleaner. * * * Roughhouse Jones, the Grays' colored catcher, got a base hit in the game with Forest City Sunday at the fairgrounds. Of course, there may be nothing to It, whether you believe in fate, circumstances or just happening It is true Roughhouse was helping out with the shopping and keeping company with a pretty colored lady from the carnival the day bvfore, * * * And since. Richard Vaughan became the proprietor of a hardware store at Whittemore last spring and with the Idea of nothing too good for himself he acquired a wife last month and the best fishing outfit obtainable. At the lake Friday he reached behind him to set the expensive rod and reel in the boat without turning to see the exact position. With gentleness ritod ease he took Ms hand off only to let them fall Into the water and the bottom of the lake. Friends with him heard lim vow to take better care of the two other prize possessions. * * * Saturday night the liquor store was a busy place. The receiving •oom was fUled with customers while many, many more stood in ine waiting their turn to get In. •fine o'clock came, the line was still ;here. Nine o'clock and the door was locked. If a person wasn't inside by that time he didn't get In. Those good citizens, land owners, store proprietors, tax payers, voters, working men who peacefully waited a turn had the lock snapped n their faces. Do you suppose they went without liquor after that hum- liation? Such practices breed law- cssness and contempt. Buying 11- egal liquor is unlawful but what do they care? They, or, most of hem got It somewhere. Don't blame .he store or the good men who work there. They are forced to obey regulations set by the lawmakers. If they are unwilling to do this somebody else will have their jobs overnight and be doing the same thing. Walt lAchtfr became the owner of a white suit, a thing he cared never to have. After one evening's wear Mrs. Lichter touched up the few soiled places. The cuffs didn't respond to her desire of cleaning so hey were placed in a preparation or restoring freshness to fine silks, ''he dirt was removed and so were he cuffs and the bottom of the rousers. Walt never did care for i white suit. * * * Charlie Reilly does n great am ount of policing and traffic directing. For this he always uses a cane Charlie sports n new and novel one that points the way for the driver or can be opened up and, presto u stool to sit on in lull moments. » * * Ben Uilitteadt of the Cummings' store is after Edgar Hoover's job A car bearing a Minnesota license plate was parked behind the store one morning when Ben opened up It was still there when he went home for supper. The next morning and the three following as well as the nights found the car in the same spot. Ben became worried and reported his findings to the police. He blushes easily now. The car was in charge of Ed Cullen of the Kohlhaas and Spilles hardware, while its owner, Ed's sister, is enjoying a vacation. * * • Business men who desire trade have their locations on North Thorington street. Several of these wonder when the sidewalk in front of the old Call Theatre is going to be open for traffic. And rightfully, indefinite is no assurance. SEXTON NEWS Read The Want Ads—It Pays.
