citizen, as he did '2C> years ago to those of a soldier.

Chaulks Clink is an independent farmer ot" Salem Township with a good
record in the army and he still sustaines tho same. He served as township
assessor until tired uf puhlic service.

J. (;. WiivsoNii serveil his full time in the service as a soluiers mid received
marks that are still on his person. After liis discharge he done provost duly
at home until tlu' enil of the war lie is an enterprising citizen and takes
a -freat inlciest in pulilic allairh. He is courteous to all and true to a
friend.

I). B. and Samuel L'ltEOEiiicic were two good supporters of Uncle Sam
during the war and still remain true to connlry, coiniade and post.

AuAM Meek sacrificed one of his arms fm- his country but has tlianks for
life and his good strong lungs, which ho gives vent to for tlie rights of his
comrades and which are of pedunury benefit to himself as a practical
auctioneer. Clomrades and friends will do well to remember this if needing

societies, especialy in the later having been commandir of post No. 138 for
a number of years.

RouLitT and Tetkh SNOwnEnoEii were valualjle sohliers and are valuable
cili/A-ns and show tlioir j^oud fcUlowship to comradis on all occasions.

J. ('. Deekman from the li) Ohio lias wiliuMsrH in the county of his soldier
(lualilii-s ami his mighbois can but spt ak well of him as a citizen.

HioNiiv Haiuiohoh and Henkv HEjKArnoiiN both live near the vacinity of
Hudson and make it a point to bo interested in social comiade~hip with
the nrembers of the post and all other comrades.
