Annual lea Cream Sficial
Each family in the parish is
as3est:i one dollar for the annual
ice cream social, ano one is
exempt from this assessment.
Refusal to remit cash for enclos
ed ticket, which admits entire
fan;iW, will be ielt as a positive
act of disrespect ind discourtesy
to me personally K.ndly make
cash return not later than Wed
nesdav, July lah, to Father
Kilkenny. '
The above is the contents of
notice sent out to his r arishioners
by Priest Kilkenny, ot Monett,
Mo.
This is a little bit oat- of sea
son just now, and the mention of
ice cream may bring- shivers to
our readers, but the c.ird has just
reached us and it is too erood to
pass up. The point is that the
dupes that adhere to Rome must
ccme down with the cash. To
fail to do so is an insult to the
priest and one that calls for
humiliation and embarrassment
if uot excommunicato n and dam
nation. The question ot wheth
er you are rich or poor does not
enter into the cae in the least,
the priest wants the coin, and
they are going to connect with it
just ao long as you are. easy
enough to stand for their impud
ence. Catch on? The Menace.
