Not ,-lnce the first Rest Room build-
ing and lot was bought some ten years
ago hae the Ihsik Club asked for con-

number of year* a few business con-
cerns a very few- - have contributed
between 912.60 and 916.00 per month
toward keeping a iniitron In the Real

for a few to do this, when all business

public convenience for both town and
rurjj women, so in the future NO
business oono rn will he asked to con-
tribute to the upkeep of the Rest
No busimei* conrsrne or Individuals
were asked for the recent Agricultural
Hhow and Feetival to contribute on*
cent, either In merchandise or cash,
as premiums, for the reason tlut the
Club thought it unfair to ask for two
oontritMitionN, and believed that both
the business iiujj and farmer,* would
prefer to help this year in paying
something on the new building which
will servo the public from year to yeoib
for muny year* to come.
An honor roll will be kept In (he

all contributors toward the olub build-
