Decided Early in life that she had a special service to perform for her fellow me n and always in the background of her mind was the idea to become a nurse. She believed that her life should be a preparation and lost no Opportunity to care for the sick and learn the methods of nursing. Her parents sent her abroad to divert her mind from her chosen work but it was of no Avail. After years of patient wait ing an Opportunity came for her to take charge of a Small Hospital where she worked hard night and Day.

He also owns a Ford. About three years ago he took a passenger Over to grand rapids and received a sum of Money in return for the Pas Sage. Later on Adolph got to think ing that in taking the person to grand rapids and getting paid Forit he Nad to acted As a common Carrier and he had heard that common carriers had to pay a War tax of a cer Tain amount on All business which they done. Or. Bracker accordingly wrote in to the grand rapids office of the internal Revenue department and told them the facts in his Case and asked the amount of tax which he should Ray. The fare was paid i october 1917. After a time he received a letter telling him to send34 cents War tax. He did up. After a few months he received a letter telling him that the 34 cents had go there too late and that As a Fine he would have to pay fifty per cent or17 cents More. Bracker sent in the 17 cents. That was in Aptil 1918. In no vember he got another letter from the grand rapids office stating that the government would stand for no Small fines and that they had fined him $10.00 for his offence. The Lett or stated that As he had already paid 17 cents All he would have to sent would be $9.83 More. Wishing to keep straight with Uncle Sam he complied with the request and sen tin the amount that time on about novem ber 18 he heard nothing More about the matter and considered Tho affair closed and he was of the opinion that he was Lucky in a Way to get out of it that easy. Along during the last Holiday sea. Son Bracker got another official looking envelope bearing the famous grand rapids postmark. He expected that the government had raised the Fine and was requesting More Money but on opening it he read that they had made an error and that in Case he had kept the letters and receipts for Money which he had paid in and would return them they would Send his entire ten dollars Back to him As the Fine should never have been assessed against to get his ten spot Back he immediately sent Back his receipts and All letters which he had received and then began to look for letter with the Check for $10.00 inside. I to the present time Thalf year later Bracker has not got the Money nor an answer to his let. Ter and it is commencing to look to him As though he was de by some one in the internal Revenue collector s office and he has decided to take the Case to the chief office at Washington d. C.
