Wednesday night paid a beau- tiful tribute to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Cibb, of Samia. The speaker was discoursing on the necessity of returning to the simple life, making a plea for simplicity in lieu of money lust, which, he de- clared, is one of the great dangers before thc American "I would rather write a book that would live a hundred years than have the wealth of said Gov. Johnson. "When I think of wealth and tlio curses that go with it there always comes to my mind picture of Mr. and Mrs. Gibb, of Sarnia. "I'met them during.a tour of Can- ada throe yours ago with a party of Minnesota editors. Today I have forgott-.-n the. great men I met, thc statesmen who strove to make our stay in Canada an enjoyable one, but always to my mind comes the mem- ory of Mr. and Mrs. Gibb. Waited for "Mother" "I had never seen a peacli orchard, and when wo reached Sarnia and were told that thc fruit grew in abun- dance about the town I expressed a desire to see an orchard. A friend drove us to the Gibb homestead, a short distance from the town. "The old gentleman welcomed us ut the gate, and told the request of Mrs. Johnson and myself, and in his simple way expressed his gratifi- cation at our coming. We left the carriage and walked around the house. But he would not start for the orchard until 'mother was there.' She was us sweetly simple as her hus- band, and like children all wan- dered through that orchard, the boughs laden with luscious fruit. We feasted until it seemed I should never wish to eat again, but when we turn- ed to the house, ilrs. Gibb invited us to stay to tea. Now we didn't want any tea, I hardly believed I could drink a drop, but I knew, if we refus- they would b2 heart-broken. So we stayed and further enjoyed their hospitality. Will Remember Picture "After our tour through Canada during which prime ministers and the highest statesmen of thc govern- ment did us honor, we returned to Sarnia to embark for Duluth. "I was hurrying up the gang-plank, a suit case i either hand, when an old gentleman said 'Good-bye, sir.' I said good-bye without turning.
