      Card of Thanks. I desire through the Press to express my deep gratitude to the many friends and neighbors who during the long years of illness of my departed wife were so constant in their kindness and assistance. Where medical skill was availing the kindly word revived drooping spirits and kindled new hopes for recovery of strength to reciprocate. The memory of such true neighborliness is a comfort in these days of loneliness. - James Dark.
