I think something should be done about All the weeds j in these lots which Are now hip High. They Are leaning All Over the sidewalk and the sidewalks j Are now half As wide As they should be. Many of the weeds Are going to seed now and the wind blows the seeds onto the lawns.

It would also make it easier walking. You either have to walk on the weeds or step around them. It is awful to walk by them at night because of the bugs.

Barber branded As bluebeard is a Oman of ice Sphinx like Calm held at murder trial As witnesses reveal stories of ghastly horror postage Stamps have occupied the pages of history As Well As the pages of collectors albums. Innocent Stamps actually have caused War Between nations and at least one Issue betrayed its country. The United states was considering construction of a canal across the isthmus of Panama in 1902. The French had started a Cut across Here to hoping that something is isthmus Many years earlier but done about this. It will improve abandoned the project. Now they offered their rights to the United states for $108,000,000. But army engineers were surveying Nicaragua for similar pos our City. Thanks for the Fine bulletin. M. B., Cleveland ave would improve Golf links Road dear editor May i nominate another Public Roadway to replace twelfth Street now being improved you know As Racine to worst this Road is that god forsaken strip of gravel which connects Johnson Park Golf course with Highway 38. The Shell holes on the Johnson Park Road Are not quite As big or As numerous As those which were featured on twelfth Street. But twelfth Street had nothing at All to compare with the endless succession of Small evenly spaced bumps out on the Park Road. These bumps become particularly effective at the Park Speed limit of 15 Miles an hour. Sibili ties and there was much debate in the u. Senate Over both plans. The Panama canal was favored but the Cost was excessive. Despite warnings of danger from volcanoes Many senators favored the Nicaragua project. Stamp brings War. One Day senator John c. Spooner of Wisconsin received a letter from Nicaragua. Its stamp showed it. Mom Tombo Nicaragua s Active Volcano. The senator declared that this was an admission of the danger lying along the route of the proposed canal. After the other senators saw the stamp the Panama canal won. In 1927 Paraguay issued a stamp bearing a map that showed the Gran Chaco belonging to Paraguay. In 1895 the area had been divided Between Bolivia Paraguay and july 29, 31 set for vocal tests of musical fete a grinning Skull testified in the trial of Robert s. James when los Angeles health officer Charles Decker used it to show7 with grim accuracy the injuries which brought death to the third mrs. James. What i would suggest to fix the Argentina Road is not an expensive paving bolivian officials inspected the program but Only a careful Grad stamp and drafted Curt diplomatic ing and oiling Job. During the notes. As a countering blow the summer months the Road has bolivian postal department issued heavy traffic the work on it a stamp showing the Gran Chaco should be begun immediately. How about it Park Board c. Z., Osborne blvd says Racine needs swimming pools dear editor i should like to take up the Cudgel thrown out by one of your correspondents of recent Date regarding the swimming of girls at the Quarry. Being the Mother of youngsters of High school age i am curious along with thousands of Otner mothers regarding the deplorable absence of swimming facilities for our Young folks. The Days Are few when Lake Michigan is w Arm enough to safely swim in besides Many of us live More than a mile from the Lake Shore. This Means a mile walk Only As so often happens to find the w Ater too cold. The Quarry is dangerous and children should not be permitted to swim there. The problem then is we Tho is to blame for this Lack of adequate neighbourhood swimming pools in this City. I would suggest those in authority travel through the South where every City worthy of the name builds pools a Large Safe and sanitary. Every Park or playground has at least one Sand lined or tile Pool w Here Little children As bolivian territory. Frontier guards shot at each other in the resulting bitterness and horrible War w As brought on. Mistake arouses nation. In 1900 san Domingo issued a stamp showing that most of the is and belong to her. The Island is equally divided Between san Domingo and Haiti. Hundreds of enraged haitians grabbed their weapons and marched into port a Prince demanding that they be led to War against this a invasion a Calm yourselves was the substance of the government to advice. San Domingo averted trouble by apologizing and blamed the trouble on an artist s mistake. Another bizarre Story concerning Stamps was revealed when an Assassin to shot killed the wrong Man in Austria. The victim or. Hugo Wittendorfer was an inoffensive person and the reason for the murder Wras perplexing to authorities until Gregor Kusch Nier Kuschnariw russian exile stepped Forward to declare that he j though the Bullet had been intended for him. Pettendorfer resembled Kuschnir Kuschnariw. Czarist fight Moscow. A Austria is full of communists who w Ould take Delight in killing a czarist a the exile observed. The inquiry brought to Light a new division of a Little organization which is out to beat Moscow. It pledges loyalty to a Czar Cyrill Robert s. James remained silent contemptuous almost indifferent As the grisly Parade of skulls and serpents passed through the courtroom. Couple to wed at Home plate player to marry childhood sweetheart at night game. Alfred r. Hilker. Los Angeles july 14.�?"Robert James the 41-year-old Barbershop bluebeard has preserved a Sphinx like Cairn throughout one of the most incredible criminal trials in the history of the state. He is rapidly becoming a legend of the cold blooded. Suave and handsome James sat calmly and heard himself described As a fiend who murdered his seventh wife by sticking her leg into a Box of rattlesnakes. He heard in Stony lethargy the charge that w Ith her insurance in mind he drowned her w Hen the Snake Poison appeared to be working too slowly. He never flinched when the snakes themselves Diamond Black rattlers were brought in their Glass Cage splashed with their deadly venom. Only one comment. Only once during a Long and terrifying ordeal did his stoicism open wide enough to show James in another aspect. That was w Hen prosecutors tried to prove that he had also murdered his third wife for her insurance. The anger pumped a Bright color into the Pale Sallow Cheeks of the former Barber and he said three words a Oit Isno to fair through the rest of the Long grueling trial James just sat immovable apparently slightly bored j indifferent to the threat of the i noose and accusations painting him. Or in planning As the most morbid monster of 1okiu Canning modern times. There must have been emotions parading behind the mask like features of the red headed Barber As he heard himself pictured As a or. Jekyll and or. Hyde Type of Lothario. But they did not show. Bad tempered husband. Throughout his life two sides of Robert James to character have alternately expressed themselves. At the tender age of 16 he Drew a Jackknife in a Street Brawl with another Urchin and slashed the boy on the Arm. Later Between his frequent marriages he was soft spoken and kindly. Married eliminations will be held at venetian theater. Sister Niece seventh wife third to Cousin women dominated James to trial As they had his life. Left to right. Mrs. Eva Murphy his sister who testified to his Moody and irritable temperament Lois Wright who told How James made love to her though she was his Niece mrs. Mary James the seventh wife whose death brought James to court and mrs. Grace Yarnell to whom James tried to make love while her Cousin his third wife was dying in a Hospital. As Well As adults May safely swim at All hours and where every High j Wladimiro Witsch Romanoff a preschool has a Pool with regular in j tender to the russian throne who reductions in swimming. I lives in obscurity at san Briar Kenosha ten Miles South has a France. And it does its feeble Best swimming Pool in its school. To Stem the flood of communist perhaps those in authority do propaganda from Russia not realize that our City of of european Headquarters Are port Unity sadly lacks advantages maintained in Vienna and Paris Beautiful Washington Park while the organization Kuschnir Albany. N. Y. A lab a under Bright lights wednesday the weather permitting outfielder Bobe became harsh Quot and cruel Quot. Loane will saunter to Home plate was ill fated Winona and instead of swinging a Bat will Wallace his third wife whose push a wedding ring on the Finger memory caused his Only Remon of attractive 19-year-old Barbara France in the present trial. More japanese to Manchukuo More intensive settlement program. Needs a swimming Pool. It would be highly interesting to hear what other mothers have to say. Thank you. We enjoy the sunday bulletin. C. D., eleventh St resident praises july 4 activities dear editor i think that this fourth of july Christmas seals. Was the Best celebrated of any i have Ever seen.
