Biit paints and varnishes have gone so high in cost that many put off the painting. "We can help ,yau out this spring and save you the "biggest part or your waint and varnish hill. We have a quantity of Paints, Varnish-Stains, Enamels, Etc., in cans which have become shopworn, and which we do not wish to continue on our shelves with fresh goods. These are good standlard brands, the assortments fairly complete in the varnishes, not,quite as oam-plete in the paints, but if you have a piece of furniture to refln- ish, porch furniture to fix up, a floor to varnish, a piece of machiai'- eryor a small building to repaint, these goods will do the work at loss than half-present costs. Come in and look over our paint and varnish bargain counter, you will bje surprised at the values we offer.

March 27, 191S. Dear Mother and all: I will write a little tonight as I anion guard in our barracks from 9 to 12. I know 1 don't write very often bu,t if you knew how much time I have to write, eta,, you. wo,uld not wond.er at it. I get up at 5:§0, eat at 6:00, get ready for inspection at 7:00 and go to work' at 7:30; quit at 11:30, eat dinner at 12, go to work again at 1:00; quit at 4:30, .have supper a.t 5, go to school at 7, and get out at 8, and have tq go to bed at 9, and have to study besides. ,-"-'<■" We all take turns on th.e range.- I qualified on the sho,rt course, that is 300 yards, .also the rapid Are which is c.alled the marksman course. This afternoon I was coacli on the firing line in th,e marksman course. I coached, three men. Only one of them qualified, bu.t that is considered good. A round means one shot. Bach man has -twenty rounds. Each round counts five in the bull's eye, four in the inner circle, three in the second circle and. two in the rest of the circle. To qualify on the short course iwe .have to make 70. To qualiSy on the marksman course we have to make 150 opt of forty rou,nds. The next course will be -the sharp shooters course. "Well, I guess that is all you care to knew about the range. I worked in Zion City quite a l,ot last week. We- don't have to, work Tery .hard, but keep b,usy most all the time. We l\ave very nice officers in this caniip. We only drill on Monday forenoons. It is now 12 o'clock, but will .not call another guard until J get .through- writing. I think I will, go to church at Zion 'City next Sunday if I am not an guard. This 'camp is in a good location. We can loolc out o,n Lake Michigan and see the boats passing by. Wisconsin boundary is just one and a .half miles .north of here. 1 have been asked a good many times to be a bugler but I won't take the job, for the simple reason- I wouldn'it get liberty on Sundays. The morning wind off the lake is rather cool when, we have to stand in rank about half an hou,r for roll call. Th.ere is a large mess hall where we all eat. We just have to wash our own dishes in this camp. I was at Great Lakes about three weeks and here two weeks. I get the Saline Observer, Milan Leader and a box of candy occasionally. I received the wintergreens today. 1 wish to th,ank the children very much for them. I suppose yo,u have all started spring work. I noticed some of the gardens are all ready for planting out here near Zion City. There certainly is a lot "of wild du,cks and geese out here on the lake. I guess I have written ahout enoughs It was the 27th of March when I started this letter, now it is the 2Sth. We sleep in cots here, instead of ham- mqeks like we did in Decatur. I like the .hammocks best, I b,elieve. I will close, with love and best wishes to all. From Myrl, A. Murray U. S. Rifle Range, Camp Logan, Zion City, IU. Well Established in "New Quarters The library is now quite well established in its new quarters, the new library building built for the library association the past year by Mrs- W. H. Davenport. The association certainly appreciates the gift of si\ch a fine building, so suitable in every way for its purpose. It is a building far every citizen of our village to be proud of and is another addition to our town's attractiveness. We wish every citizen of the village and surrounding country to feel a part interest in the library and its success. It is here for the benefit of th.e public Every one is invited to oome in and see the library any Friday after- .noon and we wQuld be more than glad to have you Join the association. Come and visit the library whether you can join or not. The 'small, fee of 50 cents a year is very small indeed, compared with the amount of excellent reading to be obtained in the 52 weeks.

IN EVERY WAY EXCEPT ATTENDANCE PATRIOTIC It ALLY FRIDAY EVENING WAS A SUCCESS Exceptionally Good Musical Program and Stirring Addresses The - patriotic rally at the opera house Friday evening was a success from every standpoint save attendance, and the latter was decidedly disappointing to the committee in charge of the affair. Splendid music was provided throughout the evening by Saline's new orchestra, which comprises in its membership Miss Ella and Bernard Boettger, Fred and Will Schmid, George Sc.h'mid and Lloyd Fairbank. Voc,al selections were capably rend- ered^b.y John F-incjh and the quartette, Messrs. Hildner, Finch, Henne and Miller. Rev. E. R. Stevenson ably presided as chairman and introduced: Professor Marquardt of Ann Arbor as the first speaker. Mr. Marquardt, who was born in Germany, nine miles from the Baltic sea, told the reasons for his allegiance to th,e land of his adoption. He related many- touching incidents of the experiences of his father in getting out of the old country into the new and success that met bis efforts iu this country in ..raising a large family and giving all of them a good education. Professor Carson, also qi the U- of M. staff, followed wdth. a stirring appeal in support of the third liberty loan. He is a rapid-fire orator and for nearly an hour held the rapt attention of the audience as lie recounted incident after incident that led up to and ■finally resulted in the United States entering the war upon the side of the allies. Miss Abjgail Pearse. of the Normal faculty, Ypsilanti, told of the part the ladies iiav-e been and will continue to play in the war. All joined in singing the first and last verses of America, and the people were dismissed. If they did not carry away with theim the determination to do all possible to uphold the administration as well as take a hearty interest in the liberty loan and kindred campaigns the fault cannot be charged up to the speakers who had addressed them or the committee which spent considerable time and effort in getting out the attendance. The second meeting of the business men and others who are intent on having a real live commercial club in 'Saline was held in the council room on Thursday evening, and while many were absent who should have been there, much was accomplished along the right lines. S. R. Wilson was elected vice president, an office which had not been filled at the previous meeting. It was the sense of those present that Saline should have a rousing 4th of July celebration this year—the first in a decade—and committees were appointed to push the good work along. A committee of three was appointed to solicit membership in the club and to report at the adjourned meeting which is bjilled for tonight. It is hoped they will be able to make a good showing, for if there is one thing more than another that every town should have it is a commercial club, or similar organization, which enrolls in its membership a majority of tlie live ones of the community, whether engaged in business or not. It is expected the committee on constitution and by-laws will have a rough' draft to present for consideration this evening, and all should be on hand to have a voice in its contents. The matter of band concerts was taken up and discussed and it Is thought ways and means can be provided to insure a continuance of the regular weekly concerts throughout the coming summer, and' in addition have other attractions at frequent intervals, such as moving pictures, vaudeville, balloon ascensions, etc. BE A HOME TOWN BOOSTER What would your town amount to without the booster? Ever stop to, ask yourself whether you are boosting or just hanging on? The booster is tlie fellow who takes hold of a forlorn hope and,, by his Cheerful optimism and bull-dog perseverance keeps' hammering away till he accomplishes his object. Little difficulties do not trouble the booster. He fattens on them, He is so red-blooded that he scorns an easy walk-over in any undertaking. He usually hunts for game worth while, and in all such hunts the difficulties are numerous and great. But he goes at them with a will to win, and will is the only quality under God's heaven that will win. The booster doesn't see the faults and failings of your town, or if he does see them, he passes them by with a smile and a cheerful prophecy that they will soon be remedied. He sees onjly the bright side, and he so constantly plays up that bright side that after awhile you just naturally come to the conclusion that it far outweighs the dark, which is very sensible of you, though you should have been helping bam all along to bury tlie dark and hold up the light. But don't get it under your hat that boasting is boosting. The two are as widely different as daylight and dark. The boaster is satisfied, the-booster is ever reaching out for more. The boaster proudly calls attention to what we have b,ut the booster calls attention to what we oan have if we display sufficient energy. The boaster lives in the glory of the present, but the booster is ever looking to the future and planning new and greater achievements. Be a booster. Get under'the load and help "tote."
