What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Here's something that is worth much to you: What stores have the best goods and at reasonable prioee in town? How can you know which stores uiey are? Watch the ads In The News, for they tell the story. The mer­ chant who spends money in advertis- ng his goods invariably ha.? goods that are worth advertising and his prices must of necessity be right or be could not afford to call especial attention to them through the pub­ lic print. Just glue your eye to the ade and you will save time, trouble and money— especially money. O N E G O O D H O B B Y The pay mayn’t be gpod in do% rs and canid. And surely there’■* nothing of fame; But those who have tried it find rich recompense In working with boys, j i .t the same. For what could be finer when years shall have fled Than knowing that you had a part In guiding a boy into paths that he led As a man, with God iu his heart. It keeiU a man thtnklr;, :n ways that are right, To share in the spirit of youth. Ifc^m ij to him something that helps in the fight; it helps him to standter the Truth. You come to believe that the things that you tell, The code of clean liviug you preach— Are something for you to live up to, a.) well As tjipee whom you're trying 'to tw?h, Thete'e no finer hobby than this one, I elalm— Than working and playing with boys; Twill bring to you little of honor or fame, But lasting and real are Us Joyis. Ar.d what could be finer when years have fled Than knowing that you had a part In guiding a gang Into paths that they led, As men, with tiod in th/sir heart. — Charley S Ktnnlson in Association Men ! j j BOOTS AND HIS BROTHERS POPULARITY CONTEST In lieu of free admiBalone to the weekly picture show at the Commu­ nity building each Saturday night, a popularity contest is being staged by the management.
