The Township Sunday School
The Township Sunday school
convention, held at v Pleasant
Valley school house Sunday, Oct.
29th. was largely atfended. The
house was literally packed and
many failed to gain admittance.
This part of the county has ^a
strong township organization,
ranking at least second best
among the township organiza-
tions of the county.
The program published in The
Clipper two weeks ago. was fol-
lowed as far as was possible, al-
though some whose names were
on the program were unable to
attend. Aside from the talks, as
announced in the printed pro-
gram, was an interesting and in-
spiring talk on "Soul-Saving,"
by Mrs. Lynch, and an enlight-
ening talk' on "Mission Work,"
bv Mrs. .1. T. McCaleb. The talk
by the county president, Mr. L.
A. Ferrcl, was much enjoyed, as
were also the two vocal solos
b\ Mrs. Agnes Dunlap. When
.\irs. Dunlap sings, she stirs the
souls of folks. There's a message
in every* one of her songs.
The president of the Town-
.sliip organization, Clias. Good-
pasture, is to be highly coin
mended for the able manner in
which he handled the work^lt
was a good convention. **
In closing my campaign, i de-
sire to state that if elected, T

the office impartially, regardless
of cliiss. religion or political af-
filiations, safeguarding the home,
the church, society and your

istration while the wheels of
progress roll on we hope with
n fulfillment of the promise of
peace and prosperity for t Ii is-
the greatest of all christian na-
tions. Your ballot, soon to he
cast, will have a part ill the

tion :is well as till matters that

(We lost money on the wheat crop.
Last August we loaned a customer $300.00 with which
he bought 16 heifers. Last week he sold the bunch and
cleared $230.00. It cost him nothing to make this extra
profit—he had the pasture and grew the roughness.
