Tell the truth and shame the devil – who amongst us knows anything about politics and elections anyhow?
Last week’s election was a demonstration to the world, that our American democracy is worth all its great cost down through the ages.
Here, a man, without money, without organization, who pitted himself singlehanded against well nigh unbelievable odds, and he won hands down. The great American people approved Harry Truman, and they expressed their approval in no uncertain voice – to be heard and heeded the wide world over.
From the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake to the Golden Gate on the Pacific, from the Potomac to Cape Fear on the East, from Canada to Mexico, stretched the broad, unbroken band of sovereign states through the very heart of America which came to the help of the President against the mighty…
Monk Small reports the killing of a big red fox recently. He was up on a ridge a calling for a wild turkey. His imitation was so natural, he found he was being stalked by an old red fox.

One day last week, Raymond and Glenn Shrader went a grouse hunting in Marlin Mountain. They put up a bird, and he kept flying by spurts down a long hollow.

About then, Glenn went into action to blow the life out of the great horned owl. The grouse got away, but it was a good day’s work to rid the range of such a bad game killer.
