Fred Wagner Is Arranging to Enlarge
His Restaurant and Fix Things
Up in Fine Order.
i to ir
From Tuesdays Dally.
One of the business enterprises o
the city that has shown a steady ad
vancement in the last year an
whose trade is constantly growing i
that of the delicatessen and lunch
room of Fred Wagner on upper Main
street which has grown from an ex
perimental stage to where it is one
of the leading enterprises of the city
and its success is well deserved as the
proprietor has been constantly on the
alert for everything that might tend
mprove his establishment and
e of benefit to his customers.
i; .Mr. Wagner today is starting in
on an improvement that marks better
than words the success of his lunch
room, and this is the enlarging of
the floor space in the room that he
may secure a larger seating capacity
for the patrons of the establishment.
The shelving1 and counter space which
is used in the portion of the room
used for the sale of the bakery pro
ducts will be shortened up considerable
and all advanced to the front of the
room leaving the entire northern por
tion of the room for the purpose of
serving and looking after the inter
ests of those who visit this home of
everything good to eat. New square
tables will be placed in the room
which will be larger than those at
present in use and by this means
Mr. Wagner hopes to increase the
seating capacity of the lunch room
to between forty-five and fifty which
wiil he a great help in handling the
business that visits this establish
ment. New linolimum will le placed
in the lunch room and everything ar
ranged with a view of adding to the
general harmony and beauty of the
room and the enjoyment of the guests.
At the front of the room a handsome
ornamental wood collanade will be
erected to divide the sales room from
the lunch room which will also be
important and much appreciated.
The policy of Mr. Wagner in get
ting the best that the market can
afford has certainly met with the ap
proval of the general public of the
city and he lets nothing interfere with
ni.s uesire to ao ine utmost lor nis
patrons and it is r.o wonder that the
people appreciate it.

Hans Seiers, the janitor at the
court house is feeling mighty well
pleased today over a pleasant surprise
that was afforded him yesterday
v. hen one of his old school friends,
Claus Schlump, dropped in to spend a
few days with him. It has been
thirty-one years sirce the two old
friends had met and the reunion was
one that will not soon be forgotten.
It was in the town of Ransport in
Germany that the two friends last
met when they both were starting
cut in life from their school work and
both felt the impulse to seek the new
freedom in the republic across the
seas both since the time of parting in
Germany they have not been in touch
with each other as Mr. Schlump lo
cated at Davenport, la., and Mr.
Seivers in this city. It was an occas
ion of rare pleasure in the reunion.

There will be held in St. Luke's
Church, beginning Sunday Evening,
Jan. 30th and ending Sunday Even
ing, Feb. Gth, a Mission. The fact of
this Mission is not a whim and device
of the Rector: it is the command of
the General Convention and that
Convention is the voice of the whole
Church. The Mission can be best
understood, if we use in its place the
word "Revival" but along quiet
ines. The success of the Mission will
measure the loyalty of the Parish to
the general Church. The responsibil-
ty of the Mission, religiously, shall
be and what comes of it, rest wholly
with the people, ""he Rector confi
dently places the good name of the
Parish in the hands of the parishon-
ers. uo we love ana iear uoa; re

for it. Plan for it. Talk for it. Then
work for it. What? The Mission in
St. Luke's Church. Hours and plans
for services will be announced soon.
The following prayer is for daily use:
"O Lord, bless, we humbly pray thee,
the Mission that is to be held; be pres
ent by the holy Spirit in every minis
tration of the holy Word and Sacra
ments. Give to thy servant, the mis
sioner, grace, wisdom and courage,
and to thy people repentance toward
God and faith toward our Lord Jesus
Christ. May those who are wander
ing from Him return, and make those
who love thee to love thee more, and
may all be done according to thy will
and to thy glory; through Jesus Christ
our Saviour. Amen."

summons to her eternal reward when
Mrs. Laura A. Mattison passed away
