TO HELP YOUNG FOLKS.
Doty, Nov. 23 - The meeting of the men of Doty at the church last Monday evening was in the way of planning some kind of an organization for the betterment of the community and to find a place for our young people to have the proper kind of enjoyment and under the proper supervision. After looking at the matter from every angle the men decided to get back of the Community club and make it a fit place for the young people and the community at large. The men are planning to put on a minstrel show in the near future to raise funds for this very commendable enterprise.
