New Eba, Jan. 0. Mr. Starlight, or
Bill Starlight, did you see any ladies
going up the hill? If there wai none,
then in your beautiful article that you
had published you lied. No one else
saw any. As for the slurs you published,
I consider where they came from. Fools
have no argument, tint gas and gab. Of
all creatures, I most diBpise a man who
will write and publish lies.
I find in the last report of the commis
sioners the names of eeveral relatives
that drew J-froin the taxpayers of the
county $57.72 out of $91.78 for work in
December, and their names are Bremer.
This shows that the Bremen don't em
ploy their relatives I I notice another
littld item in the report: The name of
C. Biemer, a minor, also the name of R.
Bratte, which means R. Bradley, an
other minor. There is a law that pro
vides a penalty for employing minors or
non-taxpayers to do road work. There
may be others that can be called hun
dred dollar men. I will look this mat
ter up at some other time.
Hereafter when you write sign your
name. Don't skulk behind any "Star
lights." What I write I sign my name
to, I know who you are.
