Uncle George Shrader Eetter
The writer visited Uncle George

H. Shrader. a short time the first of
the week, finding our old friend feel
ing considerably better than he has
for some time past. Although he is
yet far from being well, he is taking
his illness most cheerfullv and is in
terested in the farm work, though
he can no longer get about to help
do any of it. He is now able to get
about the house and out of doors a
bit. "Uncle George" is much inter
ested in the little chicks, of which
there are a large number about the
home. He is pleased to meet his old
friends and converse with them and
there is no better way of scattering
sunshine than by a call on either he
or other of our old friends, whose in
firmities of old age prevent them
from getting about like they former
ly- were able to do.
