As for flies we done to know what earthly use they have. We have a Good Friend who will not kill them. He does no to even kill mosquitoes just brushes them away when they annoy him. They have their use he says. And doubtless what in says is True. But their principal use so far As we Are concerned seems to be to test our patience try our temper and enable us to prove to ourself that nine times out of ten the Fly is quicker than the Eye. Rev.

Other employees it is understood will by Trail is erred to other stores. Montgomery Ward amp company i operates 55t> stores. During the last year they have closed live so that the closing of their Bristol store is not entirely unprecedented. Nevertheless the closing of this store is a i Ell eel Ion upon the Community Ami must be regretted b every business Man Iii town. When Hie company opened its to Al store there was fear that a schedule of Low prices would create Competition that would be bad for the local merchants. The opposite proud to be the fact. Montgomery Ward was not a a a cheap store. It was stocked with High Grade goods Foi to it most pail and it was the Hist up to Date department slur operated along strictly modern lines to be establish Here. Unfortunately the store began its operations at a time when final industries were Dull and since the opening there has been no marked improvement in business conditions other than the increased activity at the Keystone aircraft corporation Plant.

Bristol legionnaires going to convention in Harrisburg next week order is against the Public interest. The Borough Council is not inclined to submit meekly in View of the dangerous conditions which exist along fond Street. The Only possible beneficiaries of the order Are the buses and trucks that Are operated Between new York and Philadelphia and which go Lushing through the streets at a Speed that is not Only dangerous butt it Fri dying to Drivers of private cars.

She is survived by her husband Samuel s. Kensil one daughter mrs. Remine one Soli William Kensil of Philadelphia. I tile entire country Aud Montgomery Ward accompany like other Large concerns feels obliged to Cut out Hie least profitable stores. The one unpleasant fact Iii connection with the closing of this store is the judgment of the company that even the completion of the Bur Linig ton Bristol Bridge next spi ing and the improved Industrial conditions which ate looked for during tile fall and Winter would not be sufficient to enable the local store to make Money. The company evidently decided that the habit of local people of buying in Philadelphia and Tren ton was too deeply set to be overcome without sacrifice. From the viewpoint of the lode pendent the closing of this Fine store indicates a failure on tile Pun of the Community rather than on the part of the store.
