Miss Anna Kempine is helping Mrs. A. Degener with her housework.

Some of our fishermen had marvelous luck of late. Some of the fish were so anxious to get caught, that they stayed right in one place with their mouths wide open, until a hood with or without bait dropped smack into it. All the fish had to do was to just shut the mouth and get jerked onto terra firma. Ask Fred Dankemyer. His car almost needs new springs to hold up another load of fish. Ernest Neinas will almost equal this.

This country needs men for the front and more than men it needs money to keep the men supplied to start and to live.
