Gridley Star
January 31, 1907
Here at last. Will be found at all First Class Cigar Dealers Monday. Patilla with her imported Sumatra wrapper with her American Havana filler in the Finest 5c cigar on the market. It is not as mild a cigar as the ZaZa and our other brands but it will satisfy the most expert smoker. Instead of using bands on our cigars, we put better tobacco in our cigars. Bands are expensive and no benefit to the smoker. I defy all 5c cigars in the United States, in regard to quality and workmanship. At the present prices of fine tobacco, our margins on cigars are so small that no other factory could exist on the profit we make, the only reason we can exist is because we pay no rent, buy for cash, sell for cash, and have no losses and have had 25 years experience in the business.
E. E. Teeple of Gridley will be my exclusive agent for all my brands of cigars.

Roy C. , son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. S. Reed, was born at Mamton, Colorado Sept. 20, 1905, died near Gridley Kansas January 23, 1907. Aged 1 year 4 months and 3 days. His illness was of brief duration of only two days, in which time everything possible was done to restore him to health but of to no avail and his beautiful little spirit took its flight to the Great Shepherd who said of such is a Kingdom of Heaven.
The funeral service was conducted by Rev. J. H. Oliver at the cemetery on last Thursday at 3 p. m. January 24, 1907. The afflicted family have the heartfelt sympathy of all.
"Beautiful little treasures,
They were my heart's delight,
Hands like the springtime blossoms,
Dantiest pink and white,
Chubby, warm, and dimpled
Oh, could I feel them now
Softly my cheek caressing,
Patting my aching brow,
One day the laughing sunbeam,
Singing the morning gold,
Saw their fair playmates lying.
Snowy, still and cold,
Oh, they hae found the sunshine,
Dear, blessed baby's hands!
I, though its dark, catch glimpses,
Knowing God understands,
Dear little hands! Precious hands!
Beautiful baby hands!
I shall clasp them to my heart again,
These beautiful baby hands."
