Portland Paper Persists In Placing
Our Pcopl Peculiarly.
The Journal seems to take sport
in slamming it Into the residents of
Saint Johns at intervals of so short
duration that it looks like one per
petual jab. Our citizens are not
averse to being skinned once in a
while by some metropolitan paper
but when it comes to rubbing salt
and jeppcr into the slots where
they have been skun an objection
is bound to arise.
Facts are always beyond dispute.
They arc the real thing -and are,

ditions, public property. lint as

Tried to Oct Lost.
Saturday night lust Miss Jessie
Hanks, who works in Portland,
came out on a late car alout elev
en o'clock. The conductor was a
new man and called "Point View"
as the car neared Smith's crossing
whereat Miss Hanks left the car.
She saw her error in a moment
but the car had left her.
The only remedy was to wait for
the next car or walk home: and
the misguided passenger chose the
latter. Several of those who came
into Saint Tohns on that car informed
relatives of where Miss Hanks had
been left and they immediately went
to meet her, as the night was very
dark. During her walk she heard
several groups of men near the
road ana wlien one 01 mose who
went to meet her blew Jus police
whistle there were ejaculations and
some lively getting away.

Although the lodge has been in

steadily growing in strength. The

installed till some date in July.

Tub RKViaw is doiug all it can
to advertise Saint Johns in an hon

call attention to this paper and
the more Tub RBVibw is circulat
ed the better this town will be
known and sought. Kvery resi
gn hoiitd heln circulate this
paper because it is for the good of
the whole community. 11 you iwvc
an rastern acquaintance who might
be induced to locate here send him
the paper for a year: it is cheaper
and better tlian writing letters, and
much more complete. Come in
and talk it over.

Enjoyed a Picnic.

They carried their lunches and
gathered wild strawberries to their
hearts' content. 1 ney reported a
day of much pleasure. Their
names are as follows: Maim, ina

Fished With Forks.
Messrs. Adams. Titus and Wheel
erall of the Point View district-
went fishing last Saturday "just
like a lot o' kids." They had a
good time and told no fish stories
upon their return. It is a fact,
however, that sdme of the fish
caught were lauded by the uid of
pitchforks because they were too
unwieldy to pull in with hook and
line. At least a dozen of the catch
weighed about five pounds each.

"A rose by any other name would
