was taken to the city hall.

time was a prominent member and
worker in the Broadway Church of

that she cannot continue her name
on the rolls because she married a
divorced man. The church has issued
its ultimatum. Mrs. Douthwaite must
leave her church or her husband. The
church says it would like to have
her continue working with them, but
her name will have to be dropped
from the roll.
Mrs. Douthwaite takes the matter
very seriously and declares that she
will appeal to the entire congregation
and demand an open trial and make
tho members wnom sne nas aiaea
and worked with take a stand for or
against her.

This crater is filled with wutor and
is known as Bald Mountain lake
It is evident from surroundings that
at somo remote dato Bald Mountain
was an active volcano, but it must
have been nt a timo when man was
not known in these parts. FIshormon
who have been out on tho lako have
tried to find bottof of tho crator, but
in vain. One man is known to have
let a lino with a rock at tho end of

find tho bottom. While nono of our
citizens have any fear that "Old Bai

Mount Poleo and La Houirriore
many freely express tho opinion that
it is in tho lino of possibilities. The

earliest childhood. It has loft mo
with nothing to hope for, with noth

death to ambition as cocaine is to
morality. If a man makes monoy, no
matter how much, ho nnds a certain
happiness In its possession, for in tho
desire to increase his business no nas
constant use for it; but the man who
inherits woalth has nono of this.
"Tho first und tho greatest f atls

to add to what may bo an over-sufficiency."
