son and Miss Tarbell referred, follow»:
“Washington, D. C., Oct. 21, 1861.—
Right Reverend Sir: I am sure you
will pardon me if in my ignorance I
do not address you with technical
correctness. I find no law authoris
ing the appointment of chaplains for
our hospitals; and yet the services of
chaplain» are more needed, perhaps,
in Die hospitals than with the healthy
rldiera in the field. With this view,
have given a sort of quasi-appoint-
ment (a copy of which I enclose) to
each of three Protestant ministers,
who have accepted and entered upon
the duties. If you perceive no objec
tion, I will thank you to give me the
name or names of one or more suit
able persons of the Catholic church,
to whom I may with propriety tender
the same service.

GUERDON OGSBURY BURIED
The funeral of Guerdon Ogsbury,
1 «-year-old son of Dr. and Mrs. C. 8.
Ogshury of Lent», was held Wednesday
afternoon from the A. D. Kenworthy
chapel, Rev. E. A. Smith officiating.
The pallbearers were: Eddie Butler,
Mat Henry, Donald Updike, Charles
Guianese, Floyd Ixwke and l.yle Peter
son. Interment waa made in Mount
Scott Park cemetery.
Guerdon wax the only son of Dr.
Ogsbury and haa suffered for year»
with tuberculi.sia. Every medical at
tention had been given the young
man—sanatoria, general practionen,
specialist»—but the fight waa a
losing one. The medical men held out
no hope for the patient's recovery.
I .as I week Guerdon suddenly be
came worse. He went to bed and on
Christmas day passed sway. The end
was peaceful, as was his life. Though
he knew that he could not live, he
never complained. He was keenly
intcrerted in liC, particulaiMy the
< ut-of-doors, where his chance for
health lay. He was a chicken fancier
and a radio enthusiast. He was in-
tetested in mechanics of all kinds.
Dr. and Mr*. Ogshury feel grateful
to the friends and people of Mount
Scott who were kind to them during
their bereavement. As strenuously as
Naw people have differed with the
doctor's views on many questions, he
say» he found these tame people kind
to him when the great leveler of all—
Death—touched his only son.
Card of Thanks
We wish to thank our many friends
for their kindly expressions and serv
ices performed during our recent be
reavement and to expreax our sin
cere appreciation for the many beau
tiful floral offerings.
DR. AND MRS. C. S. OGSBURY.
THE RAMBLING REPORTER
The Mount Scott Herald, we know,
stands for right toleration, but our
rambling reporter happening into ono
of our restricted local causes on Sun
day morning, found what seemed to
be a wry up-to-date effort to bring
the facts of sacred hirtory vividly be
fore the people.
The use of the drama for this pur
pose may be a matter of taste or of
opinion, but in the way it was done
our reporter could not but feel that
if the literal records were not ad
hered to it should have been made
clear what wax truth and what wax
the embellishment of fiction.
The same rambling reporter is glad
to see many evidences that the en
deavor to ascertain what the sacred
scriptures, especially the new testa
ment really contain is spreading
among the people, especially ths
young, by the front line trench work
of the Sunday si-hool and by private
citisens. This knowledge should be
an antidote for many prevalent ills,

H. W. Vaughan, of 6128 Eighty

improvement, say i Mr. Vaughn, over
the old process. He is organising a
company at the pi «sent time and will
engage in the bt lines* on a large
scale. He has several locations under
consideration, but thinks he may
locate in Lent». Mr. Vaughn says
the cost of removing paint will be
considerably less under the new
method and that It ia much more
satisfactory. Primates on jobs will be
gladly furnished and the work fully
guaranteed. The process can be ap
plied as well in your home garage n-i
