When Mrs. Fannie Sasser closed her eyes in the last Ions: sleep, one of the swe< test spirits, one of the strong est characters, one of the truest friends, one of the most loyal solof the most devoted mothers went on to her reward, the rest that remaineth in the mansions prepared for souls like hers. It ig pleasing to reflect that life does net end with what we call death ?or as it continues through all eternity its influence is left to complete the work begun here and to cheer and bless, although "God giveth His beloved sleep."

Effort < Manifest 1 By David Loth m , New York, June ?Within the . week the Republican Party will have pone on record as favoring the most Crrnscrvntiv. nnlii*ir>? nrtrl' will hnvo scaled it with the nomination of conservative candidates. There was nothing else for it to; do. It remains for the party only] to convince the people that thiirs is' an honest conversatism. The talk of, drafting a liberal program supported by liberal leaders is left to the Dem-i ocrats, if they have' the political and' wisdom and courage' to do it, and to Senator LaFollette and his potential third party. Nothing was left to. chance at Cleveland. The Whole proceeding was carefully arranged in advance. There remained only the fight over the platform and the nomination of a running mate for President Coolidge. The convention is just assembling in the Ohio as this is written, but all the indications are that these two remaining points are just as definitely settlct as the r. nomination of Mr. Coolidge. There are a few nlanks still to he pui into the platform. Just how important they are is not known. But they will not in their final shape differ from the conservative tone of the rest of the platform, the chief difficulty of which will be to reconcile the differences between the ex-j ecutive and Congress. There will not even be a name of-1 fered to compete with the President. Senator LaFollette refuses to permit his name to be presented although, his own Wisconsin delegation will nn doubt give him a complimentary vote' Senator Johnson, of California, after a long preconvcntion campaign, has realized there is no market for his particular brand of progressivism and has also withdrawn from the race. There will be one gesture against the general conservatism of the convention. Senator LaFollette.'s "men. although their chief will be absent, will present his verjr libera! Ideas and see them rejected. No doubt by the time this article appears in print, this 'will already have b^en. done, j The Wisconsin lonlcr w ,11 then await the action of the Democatic I convention. If it adopt* enough c l 1 his ideas, there is a good chance r?e would swing his support, under cover or otherwise, Co the Democrat ticket. That support would be strong i nough to insure a Democratic vie ' Lury, out li Laroiieue aoe noi approve of the New York platform, he plans to run himself, thus throwing the election into Congress where he can dictate the selection.

Arrangements for an Indrpenence Day celebration got well under way the middle of the week with the anointment of the principal committees to handle the various features -' 6 mmmup Al u uK-eiing oi me chamber of Commerce and some [H| the interested citizens of the town a it native outline ol tne principal Events being planned for the day was made, and the decision to make all events absolutely free to all visitors was reached. Among the free events will be a barbecue dinnr, baseball games and a grand display of fireworks in the evening. It is the expectation of those in charge of arrangements that this will be the biggest drawing event ever staged in his section. In the past it has been customary at most celebrations to charge for such events as the ball games, and more often than not the public has expected to pay for their lunches at these celebrations. But th;? year an innovation is being made in that it will all be free. Among the events planned are two ball games, one in the morning and one in the afternoon; barbecue; address by public man; field games, bar.d concerts throughout the day; and finally an elaborate fire works display in the evening. With this program something will he in progress throughout the day from nine in the morning until nine at mght.
