Subscription 31.00 pe^yeamnjid^in^
The years roll by in a hurry. In
November of last year, Mrs. J. C\
Stewart had us enter her subscription
to the paper, and Monday she came by
to renew. It did not seem like it had
been but a few weeks since the first
payment and Mrs. Stewart accused us
of getting old. Any way, we thank
you kindly, Mrs. Stewart.
Paul Hendiy of Houston, who is
vacationing in Moscow this week was
in Corrigan 33 ednesday to get his
name in the paper. He promised us a
quarter of the buch he hopes to kill
todav for our part but unless he has
improved his marksmanship in the last
twentv years we will probably eat out
or eat hamburger one. Any way we
appreciate his good intentions.
Prof. Rov 3. Peblcs, who is teach-
ing chool .it Big Sandy this year, was

to take his renewal subscription to the
Plain Dealer, even tho it was the Sab-
bath day. First time we met this man
was when he was soliciting our vote
for Countv Clerk some dozen or more
tears ago, and it is hard for us to call
him ‘Professor.’ our first impression
being that he would make a better
county official than school teacher. He
said Sunday that he might get into
politic again hut could not say wheiy
