Mr. Leon Ray Livinvston, traveler,
author, and orator, better known as
the "A-No. 1 Wanderer will speak
at the church next Sunday. February
19, at 2:30 p. m. His subject will
be "Where Is My Wandering Boy?"
Mr. Livingston has had a checkered
cureer; running away from home in
San Francisco when but 11 years
old, he-roamed about for 30 years.
When he finally returned, he discov
ered that his good parents had died of
broken hearts because of his disap
pearance. He settled down to a life
of industry and usefulness, married
and raised a family. He is now giv
ing all his time to the runaway chil
dren problem. He li trying to show
the youth of America what a serious
mistake they make when they desert
home. He tells the parents why chil
dren run away, where they go, the
things they experience and how to
keep them home. In his travels, Mr.
Livingston has covered 520,000 miles
at an expense of -$7.61. He knows
the life of the runaway; he has a
vital and most interesting message
as he actually passed through all he
Think of it! Figures indicate that t
approximately 80.000 girls and 200,
000 boys run away very year; 40,000
girls and 35,000 boys are never seen
again by their unfortunate parents
who almost invariabl die of a broken
heart, because of grief over the miss
ing loved one!
Mr. Livingston comes to us with
the very best references from pastors
of all denominations. Kveryone who
has heard him, speaks well of the
man and his message. With millions
of men totally unemployed and num
berless men and youths tramping
aimlessly from place to place, this
address will prove most interesting,
instructive, unique and beneficial.
He reveals the tricks of the tramps
their marking of homes, etc. Rare
ly ever a woman vagrant met with!
Every family is taxed annually up to
55 aiding worthless, if not actually
dangerous, wandering beggars. He
teaches us to distinguish the unfor
tunate man who is honestly in search
of employment from vagabonds who
not only spread foul, if not deadly
diseases, but educate harmless young
runaways in the dynamiting of safes,
robbing of banks, burglarizing of
post offices and school bouses and
the murdering of folks who gave
them passage in' their automobiles
all exclusive specialties of the
tramping fraternit and never taught
in any church, school or home will
be told you Sunday afternoon. Feb
ruary 19th at 2:30. You should hear
Mr. Livingston and bring as many
others with you as possible.

Sell Farm Last Saturday.
Three hundred and twenty acres
of land of the late A. G. Murdock es

while the other quarter brought
$32.30, making an averageo f $31.70,
or in all something over $10,000 for
the farm. With a scarcity of rain
fall during recent years, it has had
a depressing effect on the price ot
land. Forty-nine years ago Isaac
