Must Have New Name It will be a matter of consider- able disappointment to residents up the valley to know that the pro- moters of the new town have fi)und that they cannot confer upon it the name of Ch rry Valley. The 1 os office department is now entirely against perlnitting the use an.v more of divided names or of naule. descriptive of local conditions that are equally applicable in various other locations. Especially does the department object to allowing the use of the naule cf "Cherry" in any combination on account (:t the fact that there are now in the postal directory 40 such post,)ftices, seven of which, throughout the country already, are Cherry Val- ley, and in this particuhtr case there is already a Cherry Valle) postofficq on the Milwaukee line il, Illinois where the mine disaster oct u red. As a matter of fact, the name Cherry Valley will always apply to the hole valley region. A real estate exper in one of the recent e,,ndemnation suits testified thai he knew the value of Dottoui land in Cherry Valley and on being pin- ned down as to the exact location of the land he knew .bout stated that it was east of Tolt! 'lha, would make a posto,qice at the new town supply a large area. The name of the new town must be. satisfitctory to the postoflice de- partment as it means the cdablish- m at of a postoffice, and canfu' endeavor has been made to see if the name of Cherry Valley would be satisfactory. It is now settled definitely that sonic other nanle must be given to the new town. Save Exhibits This is going to he a banner year in the production of all kinds of farms and the rauchers and veget- able and fruit growers of this vie, n- ity should be thinking of picking out some good exhibits for the G N. display and county fair and other exhibits. There will be plen- ty of calls for the same later in the ;ear and if you want to help adver- tise the community you can not do it better than to right now pl:m to save some of the choicest specimens on your place and take care of them for display. Humphreys for Congress Hell. W. E. Humphreys is back on the coast again and will un- doubtedly be a candidate to mic- ceed himself in the House of Rep- resentatives. There was talk of a Huinphreys boom for the Senate early in the year but it died out md there is little question but that he will be returned to succeed hitnselfon the old job. As Congressmen from this dis trier he has proved himself an able i representative and with the experi- ience he has already gained he can be still more useful iu succeeding years. Mr. John L. Wilson desires to spend some more time iu this vi- cinitya't get better acquainted with the residents of Monroe and the surrounding country  so he plans to return here early in Au- gust, after the state convention when he will speak in Monroe and take a trlp up through Cimrry Val- ley. The issues presented by Sen. w'i!s)n are of the livest interest to the residents of this section of the .tate and he will be heard with in- terest. Seq.

Copyright. 1910. by American Press Association What tragedies, what joys, are con- stantly being enacted in a great city! And the ups and downs there are! Walk along an important thoroughfare and suddenly you come upon a wed- ding party Just entering or just coming out of a church. Proceed a little far- ther and you see a crowd gathered about an auto. A child has been run over and killed. Still farther you meet a starving mother with a sickly babe in her arms. A nurse trundling a child dressed in embroidered and lace gar- ments turns the perambulator for fear her charge will be contaminated. One bright moonlight night 1 was walking over a bridge. The scene was pleasing, and I paused and leaned over the rail to enjoy it. "'How fine It is,' I remarked to myself. "'to live tn a city'. By day there Is the excitement of people and vehicles passing and re- passing, the hum of business and pleas- ure; by night myriads of lights, with occasionally the one great night lamp of heaven to illumine the whole." Suddenly to my left down on the water 1 heard a splash. A moment later a human figure came to the sur- face and went down again. A boat shot under an arch. and a man in it dived and brought up a woman, and the two were hauled into the boat. A po- lit.eman ordered the boatman to pull ashore. While they were doing so l went to where he was standing. "'What were you doing?" asked tim policeman of the girl, who by this time showed signs of life. "l wanted to die. Why didn't you let me alone?" "What's the matter?" "No home, nothing to do to earn a living, tired and heartsick." 'Well, you'll have to come along with me to answer to a charge of sui- cide." "'Policeman." I said, "will you let me provide a carriage?" "1 can call the patrol wagon." An empty carriage was passing. 1 hailed It. and the polieeman, the girl and I got In and were driven to tile police station. I must pause here in my story to tell what 1 afterward learned of the girl's history. . Some twenty years before one passing up one of the fashionable streets of the city on a certain day and hem" would have seen a party emerg- ing from a church. A young bride and groom were starting in life With every prospect of happiness. The groom's father was head of a large business. and the son had been made a junior partner on the day of his marriage A little girl was born to the couple. and she was taken to church bundled in embroidered and lace garments, like the child in the perambulator l have referred to, that she might be baptized. Then In a handsome stone residence there was a christening feast, with a millionaire for godfather. That was the year before the great panic of "73. when one morning it was annoum'ad that a great business house had failed and down went the other concerns like card houses. The father and son of this story fell with the rest. the father dying of disappointment and wounded pride. The clothing of the baby girl from that moment began to grow plain, then dingy. Her father died, and her mother lived in want. The child grew to womanhood with no remembrance of her baby clothes. When her sun arose the sun of her family set. Then her mother died. The girl went from place to place begging for a situation, but nobody wanted her. Then one night she stood on the bridge, The waters below said. 'Come. l will give you rest." The morning after the attempted suicide I went to the courtroom where the good and the bad, the unfortune and the unregenerate, were brought up before a magistrate. In her turn the girl was led In and placed in the dock. She had no defense. She simply said that she had got discouraged, and, passing over the bridge on her way to her dingy room which she had been notified she must leave on the morrow. she had looked out on the brilliant scene, then down on the water, and she could not resist the call to oblivion The downward slide in life. though it had marred, had not destroyed her comeliness. There was evidence of an inherited refinement both in person and bearing. Suddenly a member of the police court arose and said that there was a young man present who would marry the girl if she were wll!Jng. He was prodm'ed. 'l'he girl looked at him, then languidly gave her consent. What could she do? "'Judge.'* 1 said, rising. "'if you will send lhe girl to some home where she will be protected l will interest myself in her." Tile Judge asked the girl which plan lhe would prefer, and she chse my I plan. She was sent to a home for In digent girls, and soon afterward ! called upon the matron and got her charge's story as I have given it here. I looked up a few of those who had known her parents, but found there was no one to take an interest In her Some were dead. same were very poor. and the children of those who had kept in touch with the upper stratum had no use for the children of those who had gone down. What was to be done for her I must do myself. I followed the example of the young man who had offered to marry her. I could do noth- Ing for her In any other way. Stle consented, not languidly, as she had done with the other, but Itladly. 00Everett Tent & . Awning COs C. A. COLE, Proprietor Manufitcturers of "lellts and Awliings. Horse and Wagon Covers.
