Local Man Honored

Our genial druggist, Archie Stevenson, has been secretary and treasurer of the North Dakota League of Postmasters for many years, and has labored untiringly in the organization's interests. Due mainly to his efforts the membership in this state has grown from about 20, when he took hold of it, to about 500 now. At the state meeting held recently he tendered his resignation, as he is no longer a postmaster. In recognition of his valuable services, he was elected a delegate to the convention of the National League of Postmasters now being held at Detroit, Mich. with all expenses paid. He left Saturday, and expects to return about Tuesday.
The Clark Jarrett Family Leaves The many friends of Clark Jarrett and his family regret to see them leave this community. We hope that their absence from our community will not be longer than a temporary one. Good Luck go with them, anyway.
They expect to leave Arthur Thursday by auto, and will visit relatives in Madison and Milwaukee, Wis. and in Chicago before going to their new home.
