The Way We
We never have considered a transaction closed
with the mere exchange of our goods and service
for money. We prefer to think that business means
more than buying and selling—that it means the op
portunity for making and holding friends.
And this being true we come now to express our
appreciation of the friendly spirit you have shown
us and to extend to you our best wishes for a Christ
mas of joy and a New Year in which your laudable
undertakings may each be crowned with success.

Dear Free Press: ■
Christmas, the great anniversary, 1
comes on apace, and with it comes the
presents and the tokens of apprecia
tion from the many, who look with
favor on the writings of the old teacher
and scribe, who “occasionally” writes I
for The Carroll Free Press from Route 2.
A subscription for a year, paid iu
advance, to the paper would, if we live,
give you a weekly reading of the let
ters of the old teacher, and all tho
other splendid letters by our correspon
dents, which would be a splendid way
tiS spend a dollar for yourself and fam
A word dear friend,
So near life’s end,
Would warm the heart of me.
Be worth much more,
Than would a score,
On grave of J. W. B.
Bring the flowers,
In living hours,
When I can smell and see;
Then when I’m dead,
It can be said,
It suited J. W. B.
Saturday and Sunday were our regu
lar meeting days at the Camp Ground;
but, on account of snow and rain and
other draw backs, $ve did not get to
go, and so, can not say how the meet
Mr. and Mrs. Allen Barnes and chil
dren at home spent the day with us on
our birthday, and a few others, which
we very much appreciated.
Mr. J. F. Stevens leads, as usual, this
year, in having the heaviest hog kill
ed; though a good many others are kill
ing big ones.
Aubrey Lancaster and wife have a
fine new girl at their house, which they,
of course, are very proud of, and so
are its grandparents.
That baby’s pretty,
Wise and witty,
But not like Mary, seel
Mary you know,
I tell you so,
Grandchild of J. W. B.
A ■ Christmas gift,
Now coming swift,
From each of you TO ME,
Will be bo nice,
But don’t despise,
Your teacher, J. W. B.
