Mr. and Mrs. H. O. Barnhart, who
have been visiting the family of James
Shannon for the past two months, took
their departure today for Punxsutawney,
Pennsylvania, via Portland, San Fran
cisco, Pocatello and Salt Lake City.
Mr. Barnhart is one of the most faith
ful and trusted railroad conductors of
the Pennsylvania Railway systems. It
was through his many years of valuable
service to the company that he was
granted a three month’s leave of
absence. He is a gentleman of pleas

Mr and Mrs. Barnhart must take their
departure, but as duty demands, we

friends during their stay and the News
joins them in hoping that fate will not
be so unkind but that we may again
be permitted the opportunity to grasp
their hand in this life.
