Over Loss of Young Man
Whose Future Was Bright.
The death of Seeley Lawton,
caused by a falling wall during a
disastrous fire at Sioux City last
Thursday morning', March 2(5,
while acting as volunteer lire
man, cast a gloom over this com
munity, where ho has visited sev
eral times and was well known.
Mr. Lawton was a son-in-law of

"Nearer, My Ood, to Thee," and
"It Is Well with My Soul." One
of the prettiest lloral. ofTerin;
was a ladder of white roses and

Library Association Notes.
Over the door of the library
at Thames is this inscription,
"Medicine for the Soul." When
friends are absent or disappoint
ed, when discouragement or
loneliness overtakes one, on the
book shelves we will always find
the master minds of the ages,
and to us they are always at
home. Their friendship is ever
helpful and free. He who has
learned to love books has found
the avenue of contentment, and
he who has learned to apply the
accumulated wisdom of the cen
turies which he gathers through
books to the busy world that
surrounds him lias found the
secret of service. It is writers of
great books who have voiced the
universal brotherhood and pre
dicted the international patriot
ism. Through books as throuph
nothing else any soul may be
come the most intimate friend of
the greatest souls. Through
books the voices of those who
have advanced the world becomes
audible to us. They give mean
ing to the life that is and
aspiration for the life to come
Books are indeed the unperish
able friend of man and the
medicine for the soul.
