I have sometimes hunted men so I have sometimes carried chains.”



Employment Solicitation

Newpaper editorial
Today, the Supreme Court of this state freed a lunatic murderer on the grounds he didn’t know what he was doing when he cruelly killed Charles Traynor, his wife, and eight year old son. Well, this newspaper says, “Hogwash.” Doctors of the lunatic asylum have announced that murderer Carl Soddenburg will be transferred from prison to the state asylum for a voluntary rest, before being returned to society again, before being sent to another unsuspecting community. Maybe so. But maybe the kin of Soddenburg’s victims will have something to say about that.








Women are the heavenly roses of our earthly existance.”

Honor Women! they entwine and weave heavenly roses in our earthly life.”
Friedrich Schiller
