Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Peel, were
in the house and in danger of being
burned. He pulled the scantling
off apd rescued the little sufferers

the person of A. R. Dunning, who
first discovered the helpless little

ing's act was heroic, and our thanks

And to others who rushed in to

we extend our heartfelt thanks
It is true that friends are always

Si.oo a Year in Advance
As the oM year comes to a close
and we i 4 ink over how good it has
been to us, our hearts are sad for
there i one missing who has a share
in our thoughts. Now our tear
tilled e\ts are turned to a vacant
chair that was occupied by a loved
one when the year began.
How feeble are words to carry
consolation to hearts bereaved of a
beloved sister. A tender, clinging
vine interwoven in sweet memories
from the hour the angels first gave
her to our home; a gentle spirit of
light that flitted in and out like a
gleam of sunshine While the
heart wonders and cannot under
stand God's providence in taking
the loved ones to himself. May
'ie pity and contort such hearts
tonight and cause His face to shine
"Sometime we'll understand."
Her sister Roland.

said t-ruthiUllv of "II una-m Hearts"
A drama which provides healthful
recreation for the public and which
seems to instruct while apj eariug
in the foiru of aiiiu-emuit, is a
boon to any community. So many
