Former Marshfield Man Writes
of the Splendid Booster j
A word nnd n lift for your fellow
Is bettor tlinn knocking his play, ,
And If you can't speak to Km kltully'
Uo sq tc ku 1 lu.e nothing to say. ,
A dollar or two to a cronturo
Knr down in the depths of despair
Is hotter than knocking on morals
Ami preaching a lot of hot air.
A hope for the glory of heaven
Is better than doubting the plan
Or knocking the plea of salvation
Established for God given man.

"There should bo nn ordinance

Trout street man In
discussing the coming
"clean-up" dny. "At
tho present time wo
nre powerless to do anything, for
those handing out tho circulars stand
In tho street and wo have no auth
ority ovor them. The man or wo

drops tho paper In the street. If a
thousand of these circulars blow up
or down the street, tho, march toward
a city clean or benutlful Is not so per
ceptible. I am informed that there
Is no ordinance which covers tho
matter of circular distribution."
