The Leader joins in three rousing
cheers for the Weston committee,
which was headed by J. H. I'rico
as chairman and of which S. A.
Karnes was secretary and C. H. Nel

members were Joe Hodgson. J. M.
Banister and G. W. Winn. They
went about their work with a smile
of confidence and were smilingly
received. They are good men and
true and may their respective shad
