"The old ‘Seth Thoma»' clock »till

years it has been steadily at its tn«k
telling folks that time is j- .-ding
on. When the whispering voices
were hushed into silence no other
sound was heard in the r-»>m that
night when Aunt Betty, the old man's
wife, was slumbering in her coffin.
Solemnly the old clock ticked on. It

"Jaat any time, if you’ll be still
and listen, the old clock will tell you
a wonderfully beautiful st >ry of
fraternal love and charity, of how
for several years the Pythian b>dg-
of Brownsville has cared f >r thia aged
man. Fuel, raiment, food and shel­

the years. Ever into its »tory it

tell again of the unfailing friendship
of W. P. Elmore who recently fel

some money in the old man’s hand

On April 25 the house in which

A Bargain Passed Over
luut week the price of Western
Blended Flour was quoted at $1.50
per sack of 49 pounds, and not a
sack was sold. This week it is quot­

price for hard wheat floor»
the bnyer will stand to lose 35c in
just one transaction. This is just
an illustration of the fact that local
buyers are not watching the quoted
prices. It will pay our readers to

And thia 1« what they tell:
"On arriving al the Home thev
found that the manager f the home

"When the man iger returned he
found an old mm, wl ite haired ar I

and seeming to be doubtful as to

that he hi.4 come.
"Then 8. P. arose and bowed hl«

Then he said: "My

my way to "the home’.” "This,"
said the manager, "is 'the home' "
Skeptically the old man looked and
slowly shook his head while he eon

"So they left the old man there in

Well we landed here all right
last August. We had a nice warm
winter, and 1 havn't neen one foggy
dav since we came here. 1 have
quite a garden, but one must use
quite a lot of fertilizer as Seaside is
built on sand, no such soil a« you
have in Scio. Living is much high­
er here than there. Coal is $16 per
ton. wood $5 00 for s small load and
everything In proportion. I go
clamming once in awhile, but would
starve to death If I had to depend
on that for a living.
We do not like Seaside as well as
Scio, but my wife and I have both
regained our health and that is
worth a wnole lot to u» both. Hope
you are well.
Very Truly Yours.
