The writer must sign his or her full name and address to such letters. Following is the writing received from Glenn D. King of Hillman in which the writer urges immediate help for the family of nine in the eastern part of the county: \. There is a family of nine living in Pulaski township, sec. 25, who are in destitute circumstances. They are out of food and clothing and have no mon| the ey to buy neither. This tamilV Wahkon were in town early has been calling for help fon this week doing a large amount some time, but no help has been( of shopping at the local stores, given them. The only help they have had is that which their neighbors have given them. This family needs help and they will l)hve to get it immediately or they will starve to death. Both county and town officers have been informed of the above mentioned family. According to reports they have both turned a deaf ear to this call for help. Surely we have laws to provide food and clothing for those that are in such �condition. Rumor has it that they have received aid from the Red Cross but as far as I know they have not received a cent from that or any other organization. Of course there is a little more honor in helping those sufferers thousands of miles away than it is to help those at home. Not that those poor sufferers in E-urope do not need the help, but why not start in time and not wait untill thousands and millions have starved to death. This has always been the way of this world, to give when it is too late. Shall this family of nine receive aid when it too late? there are seven children in that family, surely they ought to be fed for they are not to blame for the condition they are in. If anything should happen to this family, those that represent the law, will not, cannot be blameless, for they ought to and should be held responsible for neglecting their duty as an officer of the law. We have the law. Enforce it. Signed-GLENN D. KING. Local Happenings Of the Week Mr. N. W. Fuerstenberg was a business caller in Pierz between Trains Monday. A. H. Albreht who conducted a newspaper at Kettle River for the past year passed thru Pierz on his way to Ona-mia.
