THE VOLUME 56 SALINE, WASHTENAW COUNTY, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1936 NUMBER 12 rff e ©racefs a' lire1 Like Going Away From i Home to Hear the News Roving Reporter Discovers a Natural j Artist in the Person of Mrs. Alger Allison of York. The It ChrietESfiEis Ti seese! avings i wish you all a lerry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year ■■. i *5_he One Story Bank On the Comer rro MORE PROMT OVER FEED €OST! Why not step up production, be it milk, eggs or pork? Pigs started on Larro Pig Feed means they mature quicker, dress a better percentage snd make better flavored pork. 32% Larro Dairy Feed is proving very popular. It's a much safer feed than cottonseed meal, as you have three sources of protein instead of one. Larro Egg Mash needs no comment—ask the dozens who are feeding it. Also in stock, Meat Scraps. Package Salt, Grit, Cracked Corn, Bone Meal, Charcoal, Cod Liver Oil, Bran, Middlings, Dog Food, Calf Meal, Stick Yeast, Stock Tonic and Conditioner, Epsom Salts, Morton's Smoke Salt, Liquid Smoke, Sausage Seasoning, Larro, Golden Eagle and Snow Loaf Flour, as well as Pancake Flour and Table Corn Meal—we might trade some of this for Johnnycake. That the vicinity of Saline abounds in natural scenery and pastoral beauty the Roving Reporter was well aware, but that it should also abound j with artists was a surprise. A most pleasant evening was spent with Mrs. Alger Allison recently. She has a collection of about 700 paintings which she has made. They are done in water colors and range from still life to vast mountain ranges. Many flower combinations were noted which were so true to life one almost reached to touch the petals. In the animal group, one of a deer with widespread antlers silhouetted against the mountains, the varied hues of a gorgeous sunset in the distant background, was exceptionally fine. She also had a fine group of dog sketches. Some are heads, others are full length. Some horses standing at the barnyard gate was so realistic ! one almost thought they were standing outside looking at living models. A group of indoor pictures includes one outstanding picture. It is a corner of a living room, showing the ; fireplace, mantel and bric-a-brac thereon, double windows with drape3, a spacious bookcase filled with volumes of various colors and sizes, the living room table with a reading lamp, papers, magazines and a book lying on it, a cozy chair properly placed—a marvelously true-to-life room. The shadows are artistically blended and heighten the beauty and naturalistic effect. Of woodland scenes and brookS babbling through the meadow there are many. Of snowy landscapes and winter scenes there are scores. Each moment was a delight as we passed through woodlot and town, changed from summer to winter in the twinkling of an eye. Santa Claus could •certainly make anyone happy whom he chose to remember with one of .these. 1 Mrs. Allison is very mild and unassuming about her talent, but thoroughly enjoys making the pictures. Sometimes 'she uses living models as in the case of a pet parrot. Sometimes she 'sees a picture in a magazine and draws on her own intellect Again tne spirit of Ckriste_a_7 bringing witli it its great promise ot universal joy, descends upon tne ■world.
