minutes intervened. Mr. Brown grew

Its place as one of the leading families
of the city, a position' which has been
maintained for the past thirty years.
The husband, John Sherwood, first
went Into business as a mtrchant, sub

cessation of her activites. At
time the time of her death she passed'
the four score mark by a number of
years, and Rev. Tompkins who con

the death of the righteous, and de
sirability of righteous living. Mis.

Mineral Point, Wisconsin, where her
husband had been engaged in the mer

To Automobile Owners
The Old Soldiers and the ladies, of
the Relief Corps bo appreciated the
kindness of the automobile owners
when tLey tendered the use of their
machines on Decoration Day the past
two years that we believe it would be
arealaotof kindness if the owners
would do the some thing this year.
It is a long trip to the cemetery for
many of the old soldiers and unless
conveyance is provided some of them
will have to stay at home. So be on
hand with your car at 1 o'clock sharp.

Henry Gilliam this week received a
letter from S. L. Rule of Shullaburg,
Wisuousiu, and also a copy of a weekly
newspaper, "The Pick and Gad,"
which was published at that place on
December 7, 1853.
The paper, Indeed, is a' rare old
relic, and though beginning to turn
yellow from age, is very well preserved.
We note that it is made up in much
the same style as the newspaper of to
day, as regards to the news matter,
but contains some very unique ads
It seems as though the Pick and
Gad office burned about a year ago
and that a few copies of tile first
number were fouud in the ruins. Mr.
Rule, beiug somewhat of a relic hunt
er, lately came iuto possession of a
few copies, aud Buys he has been
asked several times to sell them to the
State Historical Society, ns they are
uot ulone a rare relic, but contain no'
counts of several very ituportaut
events which taken place in that state

lit reudii.g over Mr. Rule's Utter
which Homy permitted us to do, we
uote that Henry sent Mr. Rule a copy
of this groat advertising medium, and
can't refrain from speaking of the
pleablng sensattou It gave us to read
where Mr. "Rule compliments us ou
turning out a highly creditable sheet,
und also shows himself to be a very
broad mUd,edumap, as he requests
that we be iuformetl of his opinion of
The Chief, saying "publisher-i never
get loo nutty compliments.1'
In all, the paper aud letter was a
rare treat, aud we can say that the
only thing about them which' caused
us any pain was to learn that Mr. Rule
was not a beliver in dear old Demo
cracy.. In fact, he croes so .far as to
make tUe statement that '.he trust!
that Hen,ry and the other boy'.hMa
not become "tainted" from' living, in

SorrT.Mndeedjve are sorry, to tfctak
that Mr.. Rule, aer exhibiting such
good judgmeni'ln judging a real news
paper, could go so far wrong In a
political way, and we shall try hard to
believe that It perhaps is all due to
the Republican atmosphere of Wis
consin. But be this as It may, he Las
our sincere thanks for the brotherly
feeling displaeyd, und we also feel In
debted to Henry for permitting U9 to
look over the said paper aud letter.
All parties interested are requested
to be at the Wagoner cemetery, Thurs

The votes in the Chief big auto
mobile contest will be counted next
week for the last time until the judges
auk the final count after the contest
closes. This will mean that during
the last ten days of the contest there
will be no information given out as to
the standing of the contestants and no
one will know bow many votes it will
require to wlu the grand prize.
Even at this time it is Impossible to
tell just how the contestants stand as
some of the contestants may be hold
ing back votes that do not show in the
count published in the paper. During
the last few weeks thecontestants have
had the right to turn In subscriptions
and reserve the votes to turn in at a
later date and it is hard to tell how
many some may beholding back. Only
the final count will bring out the true
standing, therefore the contestant
wishing to become the owner of. the
automobile should do as much work
as possible and have as mauy votes in
the ballot box as she can when the
closing hour comes. '
The contest will close at 6 p. m. on
Saturday, June 14. All subscriptions
