"THE PAPER THAT EVERYBODY READS"
INDEPENDENCE, POLK COUNTY, OREGON, FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 1917
THE RHYMING SUMMARIST
Five thousand, we do present
And it is freely given
That not a single soldier boy
Will e'er regret he's livin';
The Red Cross drive is by and done
And we hope there's not another,
But if there is
We'll make the whiz,
Just as we did the other.
Again the Fourth, the glorious Fourth,
The big day is approaching,
But it's not like once it was,
The safe and sane's encroaching;
There used to be a big parade,
Baloon go up and racing,
And lively greased pig chasing.
Maids spoke for all the states,
The Declaration was a top line reeler
And no celebration was complete
Without the wound up spieler;
There was a President of the Day
And Grand Marshal, official bawler,
How we'd whirl
With every girl
Till we tired the caller.
So we fear the old fashioned Fourth
Is nowr a sure back number,
Sadie says its used most now
To auto, fish and slumber;
No great exodus as yet
To seek the -ocean's breezing,
When right here
Oft we fear,
Our nights are too near freezing.

Mother's Doll Story
May's Pet Lion
There was once uihju a time a very
good little girl, who owned a pet rag
doll lion. His name wus Ieo, and, just
like Mary's lamb, everywhere May
went her I-eo was sure to go. -
One day, when tliey were out playing
near the Mk iud, along came a great
biK dug aud bulked at May.
Of course she was much afraid and
ran like anything to get over the fence.
She could not bare been any more
scared if It had been a big cow that
came at her.
I-eo ran like anything too. And when
May had scrambled over the fence
into the next lot Leo stood on top of
the fence and waited for the great, big
Now, real lions are much bigger than
doga, of course. But Leo was only a
pet rag doll Hon. Still, be bravely
waited. Aud Just as the big dog leap
ed upon the fence to Jump after May,
Leo nipped a little piece right out of
bis left ear.
"Kl-yi!" yelled the great, big dog. "I
guess I will not scare the little girl any
more today, after all." So be ran off
home, just as fast as May and Leo did.
A little tot who liked to run to the
door for letters bad never seen a postal
card. When one came In she ran to ber
mother with it, saying, "Oh. mamma.
BTe is a letter without any clothes on."

Thanks to the efforts of a number and the lib
eral response of the people of South Polk county,
we did more than our "bit" one thousand more
because the missing $39 will come in today or to
morrow. We were once branded in the public
prints as slackers when it came to aiding the Red
Cross and the above is our answer.
If called upon once more, and it is the general
Expectation ' that we will be, South Polk will
"come thru" again.

The above list, with that pub
lished on page 2 of this Monitor,
comprises the contributions of
the people of Independence and
vicinity. We regret that we
haven't the names at hand to
publish those from Buena Vista,
Monmouth and Airlie. Should
anyone be omitted or credited
with the wrong amount in the
this printed list, the mistake will
be corrected if called to our attention.
MiRS Helen Eaton will present
her pupila in recital Friday even
ing, July 8th at eight o'clock at
the Methodist church. A cor
dial invitation ia extended to
everyone to be present. No

"Valse Poetique" Frimil
"Fields Abloom"., Spenser
"Dance of Demons" Hoist
"Nocturn F Minor" Chopin

"Etude De Concerto"
I desire to thank all the ladiea
and girls, and especially Mrs. E.
E. Hilterbrand, for their work
in soliciting, all of which was
carried to a successful conclusion.
Mrs. K. C. Eldridge.
Its success Is more remarkable
because it was accomplished thru
individual effort and not under
the auspices of any organization.
Last week, Eddy & Carbray
were listed under the $5 head
when it should have been $25.
In the list published on page 2,
the error has been corrected.
