Widow’s Mite
S. W. A. Random Complains.
Editor Evening Telegram

Dear Mr. Editor, — I wish to bring under the notice of the Government how the Relieving Officer at Fox Harbour keeps us so long without our money; it should be sent to us when the time is expired every quarter, not to spend days and days waiting and then have to call and take it in truck. I think it’s high time to abolish the truck system, and a selling man should not be a Relieving Officer.

Yours truly,
A Poor Widow.
