would work on them if they wore

towns of its size and population,
and is now in a position to grow
moro rapidly than ever before.

day that while ho was traveling
along a country road with a party
of friends in one of the western
states some time ago, the vehicle
broke down, and they wero un
able to get it repaired. They
were ri'wut to set out on foot
when an undertaker came along
with an empty hearse. They
asked him if th.y could get into
the hearse and ride to town.
Tlu ir request was granted and
tho undertaker took tlu-.u to town

their every day affaire, with no
sense of impropriety.
