Volume 3 entered As second class master 1917, at the Post office traverse the act of March 1870 traverse City Michigan Friday May 24 patriotism not measured by contributions True patriotism often car Ries with it an imposition of silence.

At present at least from the Ruth less blows of the fiendish Hun can afford to be at least As patient and forbearing in such an emergency As the French and English to whom the coming of the United states might Best be likened to the appearance of the surf boat to those clinging to a rap idly sinking ship.
