and Mrs. John W. Hoback, died at
their home, four miles southeast
of here, on Monday forenoon,
March 16, after about three
weeks' illness, the immediate
cause of death being dfphtheria.
The funeral ..services were held at
the home at 2 o'clock'Monday aft
ernoon, as it was deemed advisa
ble, owing to the nature of the
child's illness, to make the inter
ment as soon as possible, ami for
the same reason the funeral serv
ices were held out-doors at the
home, Key. W, A. Taylor official -ing,
and interment was made in
the old Union cemetery, northeast
of this village.
Although the little nnv was
only three and a half months old.
the parting " was one of great
-sorrow to the parents, who were
called upon to mourn the loss of
I heir only child, and lhey have the
sincere sympathy of the entire
community in this hour of sal af
fliction. When thl? nature of the
child's ailment first became known
strict quarantine was established,
and the most careful tt'orts were
made by (he family to prevent the
disease being communicated to
others, and we are informed that
t.her,. are no indivalions that it
will develop in any other homes.

DROP in on us today
and insist on see
ing the new Spring models of Society Brand
Mark the smart style the un
approachable cut, the superb tailoring. You
might as well be absolutely correct as in
doubt about this matter of style. It's worth
taking a little trouble about.
In Society Brand Clothes you
know the minute you see them, they're right!
There isn't a question of compromise not a
shadow of indecision. True style permeates
the very textures of the garments. That's
why they're the most popular young men's
clothes made. If you can get such clothes,
surely it's worth while investigating tcday.

Long-distant e and underground transmission
was the most formidable scientific problem con
fronting the telephone experts.
The retarding effect of the earth on the tele
phone current often impaired conversation
through ne mile underground as much as
through 100 overhead. Overhead conversation
had its distinct limitations. .
No possible improvement in the t loobum;
