the people. Stranger still, when the

went into effect, strove to nullify it

It has been clearly proven that Holt

it has been clearly proved to fair fair-minded

man who wants to be just and take
no unfair partisan advantage could
construe the circular letter incident

All our jingoes will be dreadfully
sad at the apparent reluctance of

About a year ago, we had a

being vaccinated now.

the next group. Cars were thus kept
moving along in four long rows. The

four rows has the advantage of a
new arrangement in the way of a

that the line produces 30 completed
