When therefore the rate it is to be regretted that the Hal Jon Accident insurance has been re Loween season is taken by some As a used to a much lower Bises than an occasion to destroy property and that of fire insurance and is but the j to endanger life and limb. While it subscription Price of a newspaper it May be meant in the spirit of fun in seems a great mistake for any one while we have to endure some hardships these Days due to the crises we passed through during the past few year things Are in pretty Good shape considering it All. There is a spirit of Confidence about us As the above instances typify and because there Are Many others like them All of which assures us that the country believes in Harding. An event of More than passing interest and of considerable significance was the reorganization of the Warren county Bank at Williams port on monday of this week. This Well known institution is the oldest Ijanke in Warren county and was founded by the Date w. C. Smith who was Long and favourably known in financial circles throughout the state. The new Board of directors consists of Charles keys Robert Butler Warren Mankey c. G. Rossiter and mrs. Frances e. Stephenson. At a meeting of the Board of directors monday evening the following new officers were chosen Charles keys president Robert Butler vice president Warren Mankey cashier and Charley Hunter assistant cashier. Or. Mankey is a former resident of Warren county but Lator served As auditor of Benton county and now returns to act As cashier of this Well known banking institution. Charles keys is a Well known and highly respected citizen of the Community while Bob Butler is the genial and popular auctioneer of Warren and surrounding counties. Charley Hunter is Well known by his former connection with the Bank. The Warren county Bank will continue along its former line of policy which has commended of quot to its Large list of patrons and will no doubt continue to be one of the leading banking houses of the state. Mrs. Bowlus had quot a quilting Bee a mrs. B. J. Winger an mrs. Anderson entertain most instances it is sometimes the Case that the spirit of fair play is to carry his own risk against Accident. We commend our insurance ignored and without a recognition proposition to quot our readers and while of this an act transcends the Bounds of fun and enters the realm of vandalism. No Normal person would deny youth the indulgence in some fun but Youthful exuberance is too often like a motor which. Is left to run unchecked with throttle wide open it results in its own destruction and damages those about it. Quot destruction of property and annoyance of persons to the Point of exp ration should not be tolerated in the name of fun at halloween time. The world has had about enough of bolshevik ism which claimed persons had a right to do As they pleased. The end does t justify the Means. The Celebration of the halloween occasion by such indulgences As Nias Quaade parties is highly commendable and should be indulged in by both old and Young when they can act in unison but when a few unsocial beings stalk about under the cover of darkness seeking what and whom they May devour they should be dealt with As outlaws for they Are not contributing to the sum total of human happiness. Let s have plenty of fun at halloween time As Well As any other occasions for the world is sad enough at Best but let s be fair about it so the rest of us Imay share in it As Well. There Are other quot hogs quot extant besides quot Road hogs quot and unfortunately the Hall week so Ason affords so me of them the occasion to Wallow in the filth and mire. ,. We Hope that not a member of our family of readers will meet with a single Inisha yet we realize that such Good Fortune is hardly probable. In the event of misfortune it would be most Gratifying to us if through an Accident insurance policy we might help ohm of our readers to the extent at least of helping him Bear the financial Burden which is incident to any bodily injury. Read the Page advertisement care i fully in this Issue and watch for the other advertising matter which will follow in later issues and if the no position is not entirely Clear come in and we will talk it Over with you and help you understand it. While the proposition seems almost too Liberal to b9 Respo visible it s so nevertheless and we assure the review Republican readers that it is All that it is claimed for in the Friday mrs. Jason d. Bowlus entertained the Methuselah club at her country Home with an old fashioned quilting. Knowing mrs. Bowlus As we do for her culinary Art and As unusual Clever entertainer All members who could possibly arrange to go donned their Gingham Cali Coes Sun bonnets and shawls of "1849 style quot and set out for the Good time they knew was in store for them and such a quaint looking lot were they that the word Methuselah was Well applied. We were of course glad to have mrs. Dur Borow who is a charter member of the club with us also mrs. Dan Anderson of Indianapolis As our guest but we were indeed sorry All the members could not be there for we had such a Good time and were served with the quot Cream quot of the land. Jason was permitted to spread on a Little tar and fix the Linch pins but a dead line was drawn for him at the door Yard Fence and he reports that All he could hear within was the Clatter of Needles and tongues laughter and applause. This club has been conducting its weekly meetings for More than 25 years without a single arrest or serious Accident. The next seance will be held at mrs. Charles keys Friday at 2 p. M. The editor was requested to edit this according to his quot taste quot and wishes to suggest that his quot taste quot is for some of the pumpkin women love the Odle theatre is offering something new in the Way of entertainment next week when the famous diving Venus Annette Keller Nan will be presented in the first of her modern comedy dra 5pas, what women it is a rollicking Story of a tumultuous courtship in which hilarious fun is mixed with thrilling adventure on land and sea and in the air. 210 smiles 76 big laughs 29 thrills 16 scares and 4 sensations Are included in the Bill in if you Don t believe it / come and count pm next wednesday or thursday.
