A BOOSTER'S PLEDGE
The following "Booster's
Pledge," published by an ex
change, fits this community so
nicely that the Gazette-Times
cannot resist the temptation to
publish it. Here it is:
"On mv word and honor
hereby now declare that as long
as l am a resident . of this com
inunity, it will be my constant
aim to boost at all times and
"I will do what I can for anv
public work that has the good of
the community as its object
"I will submit to and abide by
majority rule and will not knock
and howl if things are not done
"I will take no radical or ex
treme position on any question
before the people, and will have
due respect for the opinions of
my friends and neighbors when
their opinions are opposed to
"I will try to say something
good about my Tcity and my
people or keep my mouth shut.
"I realize that if this commnn
ity is good enough to live in and
make my money in, it is the
proper place to spend my money. '

if she has to advertise for work,
she is no account."
Some Real Poetry
Who is the "fleeting myth"
that left the "pheasant farm?"
I suppose that accomplished
lady from S. P. is the one alluded
to. There are three pheasant
farms here, and two of them
shelter dress-makers under their
rOOfs. The San Frannisrn ladw
is no fleeting myth. She is a
dress-maker second to none in
her profession, and white hero
she. worked day and night help
ing to clothe the "four hundred, "
of which Housekeeper is not a
member or she would have known
of her presence in this commun
ity. I have within the last
thirteen months visited this- so
called "fleeting myth" beyond
the portals of the golden gate,
in the great city by the sundown
fiea. At her palatial residence
the orange tree is whispering to
the lemon across the walk, the
pomegranate was climbing up on
the arms of the olive, while
-grapevines staggered from tree
to tree rJrunk from the nectar of
their own clusters; where every
kind of berry bending bough and
bush hung like drops of rubies
and pearls wilderness -of flow
ers redolent . of eternal . spring
and pulsing with bird song, .
1 Very Costly Gowns? "
While on the inside of this
palatial residence I saw costly
gowns too numerous to mention
for the elite of the great Venice
tf the West, costing from $75 to
$125, sewing machines , were
humming in every ward. Now
comes "Housekeeper" and calls
her a "fleeting myth."
Abraham Lincoln said: "You
can fool some of the. people all
the time, and all of the people
some of the time, but you can't
fool all the people all the time,"
