IIII I I i ii I ,II I , li I THE BREWSTER HERALD Published Every Friday at Brewster, Washington. D. L. GILLESPIE, Editor and Manager gntered as second class matter at Brewster, Washington WEEKLY MAXIM: "Listening To Flattery Often Brings A False Estimate Of Strength." AND IT CAME TO PASS-- "And the angel said unto them, Fear not; for, behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a si. unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swad- dling clothes, lying in a manger. ,'And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." --St. Luke 2--10-14. BOOST FOR A FREE BRIDGE The "Free Bridge Move," which was launched by the growers and business men of this community, is a most worthy undertaking. The apple growers and farmers pay about $50,000 a year toll to get their produce to a ship- ping point, at Brewster and this is just $50,000 a year spent to travel across a span which connects two state highways. The committee in charge of the move has met with wonderful success in putting the program before the com- mercial bodies in other cities. In this time of need the grower and farmer are the ' ones to get the helping hand and for them to pay huge sums yearly to get their produce to market, is one of the i biggest problems. The cost of marketing without the toll is a staggering sum. WET AND DRY FIGHT GOES ON C B.
