being people of high social standing in our state and whose winning personality has caused to pour into our office the great number of coupons Tis no wonder with the aid of Miss Maggie Johnson a

community undertook to win this very desirable prize for his adopten daughter Anueta Rey nolds Dodds He showed them he was in the race too wheu he tried leading Jje vote at the weekend count several times The ssStof a large number of ex tras which are bought by the Ellison Merchantile Co annually just before Christmas trade kinder discouraged Billy though for he knew this firm to be working for

the left hand has done and it is probably a good thing for the right hand or else it would be scarlet with continuous blushing We referto that large class of Catholics who when the basket is banded around for Sunday collection doposito therein the munifi cent sum of one cent one round beau riful copper colored cent with an artistic Indian head stamped span it And after this they depart from the j house of God with the sweet consciousness that they harp done a great and noble deed that they have preformed their fill Christian duty towards God and His church The writer has observed the pheno menon of a copper bottomed oollection box for many years now and he Jbaa often wondered whether it was at the earneaf solicitation of these generous Oatholics that the government discon tinued minting two cent pieces There was a time when an occasional dime glittered among the ruby coin but up on reflection the conclusion is reached that it must have been dropped by mis take the nearsighted donor probably imagined it to be a three cent piece This variety of coin has likewise been discontinued uming then that the generous a here referred to attend mass jon Sunday it iis an easy matter- e that he expects litytwo num towards the support of arch he young man of today thinks noth lug of playing the slot machine to the tone of fifty cents or a dollar in a single evening ho smokes tine cigars aad orders fancy drinks ho buys inumer able ties etc and after all these expenditures hit Christian instinct prompt him to drop one cent into the basket The young lady who endeavors to keep abreast of fashions decrees and thinks nothing of investing largely in the lat est novelties ribbons etc the pater fanulias whose evening thrist requires fifteen cents worth of beer to satisfy the doting mother who invests five or ten cents in candy for the children all these belong to the vast and increasing j army of cent droppers This is merely a hint to ou leglslat that tho coinage of h t cr tcit c would blulll d with groat dglight The above is handed in by our able priest Father Minchat our request that he give us something once in a while His remark on handing it to us was that there is something that is not applicable to Catholics alone We agree with him and think it would be a valuable filler of column space in any paper SAVED FROM TERKIULE DEATH Tho family of ftl L Bobbitt of Oar gerton
