Without l he sacrificing work,
which this institution for the re
lief of sufferinjrs of the world,
there would have been much more
widespread suffering, and the death
roll would have been more pronounc

which has ben done had been an
expression of the patriotism, and
the love of fellowman. but the real
true American spirit of Christianity,
expressed in action.
The war is over, that Is the Ar

FroM Wc1no!ay's Tally.
We have known a great many
men with considerable forethought
and men planning far into the fu
ture, but our old Friend James Man
ners, for man;' years a resident of
Cass county and mail carrier for the
Murray route years ago, beats them
all. For several years "Jim" has
been a resident of Havelock, where
he has been working ill the Burling
ton shops, but at the same time has
long been planning on the day when
he should go to farming, and has
rented a farm down near Alvo that
he expects to move to in the early
spring. Now we will tell why we
think that he has a far advanced
thought of the future. Sunday
morning the stork visited his home
and left in the care of Mr. and Mrs.
Manners a pair of fine baby boys,
who in years to come will about the
two best farm hands that Jim could
find, and in his old age who can
carry all the cares of the Manners
home. The mother and little one3
are doing nicely, and we will wager
a coon skin that Jim is about the
happiest "daddy" in Havelock.
