Alfred Mosely, a wealthy
Englishman, says American boys
are brighter than English boys
He does not appear to know why.
One of the chief reasons why
young America is bright is be-
cause it tips the cap to no squire,
squireling or other condescend-
ing overman. And, in addition to
this ne may find by listening to
the conversation of Uncle Sam's
sons and daughters that each and
every one has a towering ambition ;
not one is satisfied to stay in a
part cular class if he or she can
see i way or getting higher-

He was badly wounded and gets

The following poem was handed
To host and hostess, present here,
Congratulations we now give,
That fifty years of married life,
God has permitted you to live.
But few compared with all on earth
Do live their fifty years together,
For lives are changeful as the wind,
Or as the vane, in stormy weather.
Some have been married with bright
Of happiness, and love sincere;
But soon death's fatal arrow struck,
And their fond hopes were blast-
And some did so delay their choice,
In taking to themselves a wife,
That long before the fifty years.
Old age did come and close
And some have took the solemn
That till death part, they'd
Did soon regret their unwise choice,
And wish again to be made free.
Some have preferred a single life,
Without a helpmeet, or a guide;
Biaving the storms of life alone,
Whatever might to them betide.
And now to you mcst worthy pair.
Who here this Golden Wedding
We wish much happiness and joy,
And may you many more years

sadly needed in many counties-

special two-mill tax of their own,
and townships may also levy a
two mill lax for road maintain-
ance if they so desire. All gen-
eral Ux laws against automobiles
are repealed and cars will here-
after be taxed for road purposes
on a basis of their horse power.
The fir st year's tax on anew car

power developed; 40 and 30
cents for two and three year old
cars, and 20 cents a year there-
after. Counties may have con-

guards, food and medical attend-
ance. All bridges hereafter
built must sustain a weight of 20
