For some time Joseph Cizek of this
ctiy has been planning a visit h;.c!'
to the old home in Hohemia and mat
ters were arranged for his departure
on Saturday for the land of his
birth, to one mere feast his eyes on
the verdure triad hills and fertile
field of Iiohen.ii, f-oin which coun
try so many of our worthy citr
have come. Yo see that he
ei. a fitting stall on his journey !:.sl
evening the members of the T. J
Sokol and Z. C. Ii. J. societies ar
ranged a surprise on Joe and it way
certainly a surprise.
The guest of honor was invited bv
William Holly to go to the hall a:.d
assist in fixing some windows which
Mr. Holly represented were In need
of repair and Mr. Cizek of course
agreed. On the arrival at the T. J.
Sokol hall the building was found
in darkness and the "victim" of the
occasion was wholly unaware of the
pleasant event awaiting him. As he
entered the hall the lights were turn
ed on. the band, stationed on the
stage, struck up one of the popular
folk songs of Bohemia. To say that
Mr. Cizek was surprised Is putting it
mildly and he required several min
utes to recover from the shock as
the laughing voices of- his friends
greeted him. The guest of honor,
however, entered thoroughly into tho
spirit of the occasion and until a
late hour the hall was the scene of
much merriment. A fine banquet
had been prepared by the ladies of
the two societies and which abound
ing with the good things to eat made
the occasion one long to be remem
bered. The remainder of the even
ing was spent in dancing and in the
enjoyment of a fine social time.
At the home going hour the mem
bers of the party joined in wishing
Mr. Cizek a happy and pleasant trip
across the sea to the old home. V1ien
Mr. Cizek came to America his native
land was a state of the Austrian
Hungarian empire and he returns to
a republic of his own people which
has been the result of the war and
for which the Bohemian residents of J
the United States have Jong hoped
and prayed for.

With Overall-Clubs, Old-Clothes-Clubs, No-Clothes-Clubs and
what not, the clothes question is receiving its full share of attention

D.'s Wearing overalls over silk shirts will not solve the problem it simply
complicates it by creating a fad at the expense of the man whose occupation
requires overalls. The only sensible thing to do is to keep our head, hold our
tongue and saw more wood. The clothing man does not advise you to buy
clothes you do not need, but unless you are a recluse or a hermit you need at
least one good suit of clothes. If you haven't got them you should buy them
they're not out of reach and you gain nothing by waiting. With the average
man it,doesn't require any more hours of labor now to buy a suit than in the
"good old times" when everybody was hard up and the tramp and the unem
ployed knocked daily at our back door. Then goods were cheap to be suie.
but, the money to buy them was mighty hard to get. More people are wear
ing good shoes and good clothes today than then. More people living com
fortably now than then. There is more money in the hands of the average
man now than then. Stop and think about this and see if its not true.
