Page 10- Wednesday, March 12, 1980 Glimpses of the Past By JACK HOWELL There are times in the history of every town when the citizenry are met with a dilemma that requires positive action, and the press is usually there to champion thelcause, such as a situation that existed in 1880 here in our peaceful valley. Ex- cerpts from an editorial by Frank Merritt: "With no desire {o say naught in this art|de, save for the public good, we desire to call to attention of our most worthy City Council to the sewer question that is at present been a thorn in the side of a large portion of the com- munity, the sewer in question runs right thru the center of town, much of it is open, exposing most of the rubbish and filth that usually finds lodgement in those places. It forces a nuisance stench on that portion of the com- munity, whichever way the wind happens to blow. Let this accursed &apos;mouth piece' of typhoid fever be covered up and remain covered until the treasury is sufficiently in- flated to meet the requirements. Just as long as we allow people to do as they please we will have a 'one horse town', proper care and attention will convert Cloverdale into one of the neatest, cleanest, and healthiest towns on the Pacific coast. Work together, pull together, in peace and harmony for the public good should be our watchword first, last and all the time." (The editor being an idealist should have realized that these complaints probably fell on deaf ears and should have called the roto-rooter man. Forth with, he always keeps things moving along.) In the early days of Cloverdale folks had to be self sufficient and self-reliant in many ways. At that time many kinds of grain were grown in the area (Oat Valley for one) and of course all these grains needed processing. On Sulphur Creek about 2 miles up the Geysers road beyond the road that now leads to the summer crossing, and beyond the old power house that Arthur Foster now lives, stood a mill. The ad in the 1880 Reveille read as follows: "Sulphur Creek Mills", - water power-, the best quality of flour, meal, bran and feed of all kinds. Ask your grocer for Sulphur Creek Mills flour. This verse was also part of the ad: "Ye hungry souls come gather round; bring me your grist and have it ground. I work alike for rich and poor, and want goes smiling from the door." W.W. Mc- Neal Jr. To keep everybody on their feet, Mr. J. Muntz manufactured boots and shoes right here in Clover- dale. His boots and shoes were made from the best material and repairing was done promptly. The shop was on West Street, east side, next to the meat market. And opposite on the West side Mr. A. Davis had a dry goods store that featured, Gents' furnishings, readymade clothing, hats, caps, boots, ladies hats and clothing and to keep prices down, poultry, eggs, hides, pelts#tc, taken in exchange for goods, (I wonder what they would take for a gallon of gas?) and obviously there was a great demand for footwear because also on West Street was another boot and shoemaker, Mr. S. Hooke, who advertised his place as "Don't forget the place--sign of the big red boot". He was also Clover- dale agent for Fireman's Fund Ins. Co. He featured: calf-sewed boots made to order-S12; calf peg boots-S8; half-soling pegged or screwed-S1; Farmers try my Kip Boots! Across the street from City Hall, J.H. Liver- nash sold furniture of the best quality and dry goods. In addition he was the agent for "The Mutual Relief Association of Petaluma" (He was also the undertaker and kept a ready supply of caskets on hand.) Last week we mentioned a Dr. Tanner who wason a fast. This week we discover in a later edition that Dr. Tanner was denounced as a fraud and an imposter. The supposed water that was administered to him actually was a South American beverage well known for its force giving properties according to a French chemist, Piasson. The information was fur- nished by the ex-Mrs. Tan- ner. Vengence was no doubt her motive; she was actually a poor loser. On July l, 1880 the Cioverdale Reveille was sold Good word for today: Fervent to F.W. Merritt. This timely account appeared in the March 1, 1934 Reveille: "The 35th annual Citrus Fair has passed into retrospect and leaves a sudden void in the intense activity that has stirred the community for the past several weeks. For four days glamour reigned with carefree abandon. The whirlpool of activity drew all into its vortex, contrary to expectations the ill-timed rains in no way washed up the fair or dampened the exhuberant spirits of the spectators and participants. The fair opened with rain and closed its doors to its con- tinued tatto on the pavillion roof. It did not however dim the rekindling of old fellowships and the reliving of old times that grow more lustrous with passing time prevailed. So I guess history does repeat itself sometimes, but the spirit prevails, none the less. Womens Relief Society meeting schedule changed By DORIS HiIL taught how to decorate. Monday night Family Home Weekly Relief Society meetings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been changed to Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. on a year-around basis. These meetings will preeeed Sunday School and Sacrament meeting. The first ,Sunday of each month will be the Spiritual Living lesson. Second week Mother Education, third week Social Relations and fourth week, Cultural Refinement lesson. The monthly Homemaking meeting is moved to the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. preceeded by Visiting Teaching Report meeting at 7:00 p.m. During the month of March only, these meetings will be on the second Tuesday, March llth. The women are to bring a cake which they will be The Relief Society organization is the largest and oldest womens organization in the world and its one and a quarter million members will celebrate it's 138th anniversary at a Branch dinner to be .held on March 14th at 6:30 p.m. The new consolidated meeting schedule in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is not only in effect in Cloverdale, but throughout the United States and Canada and it provides only 3 hours of meeting time on Sunday which includes auxiliaries. This will leave many free hours during Sunday and throughout the week for a family study period at home. A family study guide will be made available and it is earnestly requested that parents universally use this guide in better teaching their children in the home. The regular Evening can be a family activity night. Regular weekday activities for the young people will be held, the frequency of these activities will be determined by local needs. The First Presidency has several important purposes in mind for the change: I. Strengthening the family circle. 2. Better Sabbath Day observance. 3.  Saving energy, both in travel and in maintenance of church buildings. Preset!t social trends are a direct threat to good home life. Latter-day Saints believe not only that families are the basic unit of society, but also that families are forever, and form the structure on which exaltation may be achieved in the world to come. We must make them successful, and this new schedule is one means of doing so. Notic, Classrooms Santa Rosa will be closed March 14. holiday was the 1980 of a holiday Day.

It is of the greatest im- portance that we be fervent in our love for the Lord and for each other. It is a direct command from the word of God. 1 Peter 4:8says "above all keep fervent in your love" and Romans 12:11 entreats us to be "fervent in the spirit, serving the Lord". If we are not excited about the things the Lord has done for us, how can we hope to ignite a flame of interest in those we hope to win for Christ? In the third chapter of Reveltations, verses 15 and 16, we read these startling words: "I know your deeds, that you are neither hot nor cold; I would that you were hot or cold. So because you are lukewarm and neither coldnor hot, I will spit you out of my mouth". These are harsh words. The word spit is translated from the word vomit. He will vomit the lukewarm Christian out of His mouth ! Christ would rather that we be entirely cold toward His cause than to be lukewarm. The rationale behind this is easy to see. If we are cold we are not presenting a testimony of any kind, and if we are hot, or fervent, for the- Lord the witness we present is strong and inviting. On the other hand, if we are lukewarm, and sUll identify ourselves as being Chrsitian we are doing more to hurt the cause of Christ than to help it. Who would be moved to follow a lukewarm leader? No wonder He says He will spit such a one out of His mouth ! He has done great an ! wonderful things in the Fife, i every believer and we ought to fervently proclaim it!
