May 5

On Sunday a party of 24 prominent locals left here in autos for Armstrong’s Grove near Guerneville where they spent a most delightful day.

Temperance drinks, drinks without that false stimulant, alcohol, are coming more and more into popular use. Time was that men laughed at them as “soft,” only fit for women and children.

Veale & Neil, quality grocers, can now supply you with the peerless Welch’s Grape Juice, a liquid food, appetizing and strengthening. Drink all you want, there is no danger of unpleasant results, only benefit comes from it.
