E. church hall, Monroe, last Tuesday evening to bid welcome to Rev. and Mrs. E. D. White upon their return to Monroe for another year. he as pastor of the church.

E. church. It was about nine o'clock before the program of events swung into action and it was well toward eleven before the punch bowls were run dry and the busy social time came to an end.

Miss Margaret Bascom play- ed two selections on the violin, very nice selections indeed. Miss Sherill accompanied. A speaking program followed, in which Rev. Simmons, from Gold Bar was the principle talker, who made the address of welcome to Rev. and Mrs. White. He told many weird experiences he has had in the ministry during, many years. Rev. White came back in nice response to this welcome. Rev. P. A. Kliewer was the next speaker in a short and apt little speech. J. J. Reardon followed with a brief word of welcome and faro well. Mr. Raymond spoke at consid- erable length, during which he took occasion to thank Monroe people for their many kindnesses to himself and family and would long remember pleasant memories of Monroe, where for eleven years he served well ir the ministry ef God. He grew quite hu- morous at times and brought down the house with witticisms, jokes on him- self Then followed the emptying of the punch bowls which was duly per- formed and" during which a very fine social hour was had. It was an event long to be remembered in Monroe by all participating.

ROBBINS IS MADE PRESIDENT "-7-- At the district  convention of Odd Fellows assembled in Granite Falls last Saturday, John M. Robbins, of Monroe, was elevated to the presi- dency of the district for the en'suing term, thus advancing from the post of vice-president, which he has so acceptably filled'. When it is known that about 200 delegates were present at this important meeting of the Odd Fellow of the district, the honor con- ferred upon Mr. Robbins and the town be hails from is quite significant. The Monitor congratulates him on this fine recognition which vouches so emphatically for the high estimate placed upon his membership by his fellow Odd Fellows. 'AND WHEN I WOKE, IT RAINED." It is worth setting down in your diary record book that it rained in Monroe Tuesday afternoon. It may be a long, long way to Tipperary, but even so, its no mean distance back to the time when it rained to any great extent in Monroe. Little the' it was, it helped to clear things up quite a good deal. Plenty of mois- ture at this time would do a lot of good in filling up the streams that seem to be so badly in need of re- plenishment A HILK FOR REVIVAL MEET IN MONROE Series of Interesting Sermons Will Be Preached Here Next Week To Which All Are Invited To Attend. By REV. FRANK JONES The evangelist who begins a fit days' revival period in Monroe, Mon- day, October 4th. His sernmn for Monday will be a large wall char* sermon, "The Tree of .Life."

Obituary Albert William Boa'den Another of the long time and hon- ored residents of the Skykomish val- ley, in the Monroe region, has been called' to his reward in the person of A. W. BordeR. Woods Creek rancher for about thirty years, after a lin- gering illness, in the 73rd year of his age. For the past two years or more Mr. Borden had been failing in health and during, the past few months almost entirely confined to his home and spending much of the past few weeks in bed. In the way of medical skill and' good' nursing he had all possible done for him, but without avail, for it was a general breakdown and so his life tapered to its close which came Thursday at 10' oclock, p. m., August 24th. The funeral was held Monday morning from the Purdy & Sons chapel, Rev. P. H. Raymonc officiat{ng, assisted by Mrs. Selwood', who sang. The pall bearers were George Bump, J. M. Fuller, A. Bengston, Win. Madill, C. J. Knott and John Ingraham. Bur- ial was made in I. O. O. F. cemetery. There was a large attendance at these last sad rites to this old pio- neer of the valley, who in the days of his youth was a man of wonderful physical endurance and of splendid stature. In his discourse on this occasion, Rev. Raymond reverted per- sonally to deceased in the following words: "Albert William Borden was born May 7, 1853, at Westfield, Wis. He was married to Sarah Alexander on I THE GROWING OF Numerous histories if the building .|j|-|j|.

To the one who visited the commun- ity and county fairs of the past few weeks, there should remain no doubt about the possibility of growing al- falfa in Sn'ohomish county. Some very splendid exxamples of what al- falfa can be made to do here was shown. A rather close questioning of those folks who have been able to get it to produce as shown brings out the fact that in every case definite methods had to be carried out. The splendid crop was not a case of scattering a little seed and trusting that a good crop would be returned. Some of the most important things to keep in mind in planting alfalfa is that thorough preparation of the iand before and at the time of planting is absolutely necessary. Attempt the seeding of alfalfa after a row croo so that the land will have the advan- tage of at least a year's rather in- tensive cultivation. Another thing is to seed early in the spring so as to give the young plants a chance to get well started before the hot dry weather of summer comes on. Young alfalfa plants are very tender, and are unable to withstand very little adverse conditions. While the year's previous cultiva- tion has done much to free the land of weeds, still there will be many to kill out the young and tender alfalfa plants, so in order to protect these young plants, plan to clip the seeding two or three times during the season. This will help the young alfalfa. Be sure to inoculate the seed before planting. If the young stand begins to show yellow early in the summer, it is well to roll the ground good to insure that the soil is well packed around the young roots.

AMERICAN LEGION ELECTS OFFICERS The Arthur Kincaid Post of the American Legion, held their annual election of officers Monday evening. The following officers were elected: Harry Bennett, Commander; Harry Bayley, finance officer; Grant Gibson, chaplain; Bob Duncan, historian" Henry Martel and Everett Taylor, vice-commanders. A vote of thanks was given the lVronroe General Hos- pital for the medical attention and care given Elmer Day, who was in- jured by a train at this station. A program for 1925 and 1926 will be outlined at the next meeting, at which all members are requested to be pres- ent. Married DinanBarlow Miss Ruth Barlow, of Seattle, and T. J. Dinan, of Monroe, were married Saturday afternoon by the Rev. F. B. Matthews at the First Baptist church, Seattle. John Haynes acted as best "The Iron Horse." As an instance, there is a detailed record in "New Colorado," by Hayes, cf an attempt by Indians to lasso a train. The in- cident is shown in the picture as clearly as it occurred. "The gn-aders and track layers of- ten had to fight their way and there is a tradition" current of an attempt to stop an express train," wrote Hayes. "It is undersod that a lariat was stretched across the track, breast high and held by some thirty braves on each side." But," said the narrator, "when th' engineer fust see it, he didn't know whfit on airth mz the matter, but in' a minute more he bust out laughin' and he ketched hold of that throttle, an' he opened her cut; an' he struck that lariat agoin' a,out forty mile an hour, an" he jest ,piled them braves up everlastin' per- !miscqus, you bet!" 5ohn Ford, the director, follows ac- tual bitor: in the picture which has been b.ertily approved by both press and oub]ie.

Seattle, took place Saturday eveninc, Sept. 26th, the marriage of Earl Raymond Ross, of Monroe, son of Mr. and' Mrs. Archie Ross, to Miss Mary Gauthier, Rev. J. D. Powers officiating. The wedding was a quiet family affair, attended by the immediate members only, among them Mr. and Mrs. Ross, Mr. and Mrs. Bird, the latter lady playing hostess at the wedding feast served following the marriage ceremony. The newlyweds left that evening for Victoria, where their honeymoon will be spent, also at ether B. C. points. These young people will surely receive many good wishes and congratulations from their Monroe friends and in which the Monitor sincerely desires to par- ticipate. The groom is a Monroe boy as is his winsome little wife, and both have grown to adult age in this city; were schooled here, and" be- cause of these things, and for their own gratification and glory, we hoe their future 'will be well stored with all the good and substantial things of life, happiness and endless years. Earl has for some time been a stu- dent at the U, and at this time is electrician in the service of the Al- bers Milling Co. Their home will be 525 Queen Anne Ave., Seattle, Wash. The Great Northern had a little spill in the yards at Skykomish, a few evenings ago when a switch or !helper engine backing down to the west end of the yard was struck by an incoming.

PHONOGRAPHIC FATHER DONEGAN I WELL PLEASED With Success of Mission Ser- vices He is Conducting In St. Mary's This Week--Well AttendedClose Sunday. The mission services conducted in St. Mary's church, Monroe, by Rev. J. P. Donegan, member of the Con- congregation had its inception, will end next Sunday evening, Oct. 4. The in the city ef New York where this congregation had its inception. The work of this band of the priesthood of the Catholic church is devoted in great part to missionary service for non'-Catholic people who through cur- iosity or more sric, us m,,iv, are in what we may call he wayfarer class. Originally the order was composed of men chiefly cGnverts, for its founder was of this kind, Roy. Father ttecker. Father Donegan has been in the work for a long time, has preached almost all over the nation, has grown up in this wonderful campaign of evangilization and' delights in it. Ev- ery morning at six o'clock he i. promptly on the altar and it's past nine every evening before hi day's work is done. ,-Ie is a man of wen- derful capacity, a real worker and a speaker of remarkable force. Tha*. he is a scholar goes v,ithcut saying, his sermons indicate that. Of pleas- ing personality and of very ap- proachable social cbaracterisEcs. His visit in Monroe, he says, has been a source of great pleasure to him, be- cause of its associations, and more o because of the success that seems to be crowning his labors here, during which time he is a guest of Rev. Robt. Dillon, pastor of the chm'ch. From here Father Donegan gogs to Skyko- mish where he holds a week's mission and which begins Mond'ay, Oct. 5. His provincial home is at PortlanJ, though he does not spend very much of his time in that city. for, as he says himself "I am on the go much of the time." Father Donegan closes in Monroe Sunday evening, and hopes that his closing lecture will be well attended and to which a most cordial welcome is extended' by him. POLITICIANS VISIT MONROE A group of state and county poli- tiCians visited .Monroe, Monday, in- specting the political fences in this locality and" meeting the influential units of the dominant party in this swing that they are making around Snohomish county. The party which lunched at the Sa- voy, consisted of Senator Wesley L. Jones, of Seattle, Gee. H. Murphy, state senator, Attorney L. N. Jones, C. H. Tracey, of Arlington, and Dr. J. A.' Durrant, state representative, Snohomish. J Senator Jones is quite impressed with the fine appearance of our city, remarked especially on its business section as excellent. "It has been several years," Senator Jones said, "since I last visited in Monroe, and its development since then is quite a revelation to me." Mrs. George Dahl Dies Mrs. George Dahl, 29 years of age, died at the Firland Sanitarium, near Seattle, at 9 o'clock, Thursday eve- nng, September 24, 1925. She had been in poor health from tuberculosis real army style, tents, mess lines, etc. The ,Washington State oivilian team took 17th place and the W. N. G. team 6th out of 87 contesting teams. Roy says that he enjoyed the trip and the shoot very much and only wishes that more shooters in Monroe could be interested in' the: Monroe rifle club, thus giving Monroe i a chance for more shooters naking the trip. Improved Ford Caxs Every day new evidence comes in of the popularity of the improved Ford cars. It is not only expressed in the crowds which fill dealer show rooms all over the country and, the groups which pause to inspect the cars wher- ever they appear on the streets nor alone in the thousands of orders be- ing booked for immediate delivery, but also in orders entered for future delivery. Probably the best index to future deliveries of these cars is found in enrollments in the Ford Weekly Pur- chase Plan, which have shown a re- markable increase since the cars made their appearance. This increase was first noticed the last ten days in August, during which the announcement of the cars was made. In that period enrollments un- der the plan reached a total of 13,167 and in the ten days following, the first in September, the number of new purchasens under the plan totaled 16,054. Those enrolled under the plan at the time the improved cars were an- nounced all benefitted by the change, for they will receive the new typos and will be given preference when they desire delivery of cars. More than 175,000 are now enrolled under the plan and with others com- ing in at the rate of 1,600 a day it will not be long before the enrollment list will exceed 200,000. Those who are ordering cars under the plan at the present time for the most part contemplate delivery either during the coming holiday season or for early spring next year.

Speakers will address all of the children in this community on the value of milk as a food. Local school children are being urged to compete in a poster contest for which prizes are veing offered. Instructions governing the contest have been sent to the teachers. The purpose of this campaign is to increase he use of milk for the whole family, but especially for the growing boys and girls. A quart of milk a day for every child is not too much, and each child should have at least one pint daily, according to nutrition specialists. , A survey is being madein the local schools to determine the nurdber of children who ae underweight and the number who drink sufficient milk. Results of this survey will be pub- lished soon. The campaign is being directed by Miss Florence Hall, of the bureau of dairying of the United States depart- men of agriculture. L. Davies, city milk and' food inspector of Everett, 'is serving as general chairman of the committee. Milk campaigns similar to the one in Snohomish county have been con- ducted in many parts of the United States and have resulted in reducing underweight/among school children considerably. Milk is an important food for chil- :dren, supplying energy, protein., min- feral matter and vitamins. In addi- i tion to using milk as a drink it may be used in the form of cream sauces, ere aoups, junket, cup custards, ice  and similar dishes. ARNOLD Z. SMITH, County Agent. Nell Borden, Mrs. Jas. Alexander and Gene Borden, of Monroe; Mrs. Anne Harris, of Nanaimo, Canada, and Tom Borden, of Wisconsin, all of whom l were here except the latter named, i Besides those named he ig survived! by his brother, A. W. Borden, of Monroe, and a half brother, E. Con- ner, of Spokane. Mr. and Mrs. Bor- den are old residents of this commun- nity, having lived on Woods Creek for more than" thirty years. They have seen many changes in that time and the family has played no small part in this community development. "The one whom we lay away today was a man of more than average parts. Born of good stock and well connected, he has passed to his pro- geny qualities that go to the making of our very finest citizenry. He was a great lover of his home and home llfe and around these the greater part of his life's interests were clus- tered. He enjoyed many friendships and those who knew him in this cap- acity will always remember him for his fidelity to principle and staunch- ness in time of need. His hospitality knew no bounds and his home offered a kindly and cordial wlcome to all. He was renerous almost to a fault, an.or his free-hearted disposition led him to share anything that he. had when recessity required it. The ups and downs of life of course were his as it is common, to all, but' he always bore with splendid fortitude and strength the many vicissitudes that crowded into hi domain. Both he and his dear wife in later years ex- perienced some sad and tragic hap- penings, but they came thru them with that experience of the Divi_e sympathy which enabled them to comfort others in their affliction. Mr. :Borden was not affiliated with any particular church, but those who knew him best speak of him as a reverend believer in the truths of the Christian religion and, one who lived and died' in the hope in the here- after. One who had lived intelligent- ly and thoughtfully three score and ten years could scarcely fail to be- come acquainted with the Benevolent Father of all being and the Savior- man and Mrs. John Haynes as brides- maid. Mr. and Mrs. Dinan left for Mercer Island for a few days visit with .the bride's old school friend, Miss H. M. Jones. Mr. and Mrs. Dinan will make their home in Mon- roe at 430 Blakely street. Etiquette of The Flag Take every precaution to prevent the flag from becoming soiled. It should not be allowed to touch the ground or floor, nor to brush against objects that are not thoroughly clean. The flag shuld never be raised or lowered by any mechanical appliance. Do not raise the flag while it is furJed. Unfurl, then hoist quickly to the top of the staff. Lower it slow- ly with dignity. Where used' as a anner the union should fly to the north in streets running east and west, and to the east in street running north and south. Where the National Flag is display- ed with State or ".or flags it should be given the place of honor on the right. Display the flag upon a staff when possible. Place no object on or over the flag. Various articles are sometimes placed on a speaker's table covered with the flag. This practice should be avoided. Always let the flag hang straight. Do not festoon over doors or arches or tie it in a bow knot. Use red. white, and blue bunting for decora- tive purposes. When flags are used in unveiling a statue or monument they should nct be allowed to fall to the ground, but should be carried aloft, forming a feature of the ceremony. Befare being placed at half-mast the flag must always be raised to the top of the staff. Before lowering it must likewise be hoisted'to the top. Flags of friendly nations should not be displayed one above he other They should be nlaced on staffs or halyards of equal size on. the same level. hood: of the Son He sent to reveal Himself. We lay our brother away in this faith today and pray the lov- ing sympathy of that Savior to the many who are here today.

Unique Method of "Broadcast- ing" General Sales Manag- ers Address Among Thou- sands of Employes. A unique address to more than 20,000 members of the Chevrolet selling organization, scattered tlqru- out the United States was achieved recently by R. H. Grant, general sales manager of the Chevrolet Motor com- pany. Mr. Grant announced the opening of the Chevrolet fall selling campaign by means of duplicate phonograph records which reproduced his. voice in the show room of every Chevrolet dealer. Under Mr. Grant's direction the phonographic address plan worked out smoothl, to complete success. In each of the thousands of Chev- rolet salesrooms wag gathered at exactly the same hour an interested groul of salesmen. Their ranks were augmented' by numerous members of the Chevrolet organization not direct- ly interested in selling, who attended because of curiosity over the novelty of the meeting. At a previously established "zero hour" the thousands of records were started simultaneously and Mr. Grant's voice was heard in every state in the Union. "The present selling campaign, the most ambitious in Chevrolet history, !is of such importance that I wished to i attend personally every meeting of every sales group," said Mr. Grant. "This being impossible, I chose the best substitute--the phonograph. "Thus every salesman received' a personal message by which he was informed of all the campaign details. Through this campaign and because of the gratifying sales volume of re- cen months, I expect that Chevrolet will do a record fall business."
