If it hadn’t been for Pete Paulson our readers would either be deprived of their weekly visitor or else we would have been compelled to resort the old reliable, the Armstrong, in issuing this week’s News.  Our gasoline engine after more than five years of faithful service refused to say kabunk last Wednesday and coax as hard as we did it would not budge an inch.  We were almost at the verge of disposing of it at 3c per pound when we suddenly remembered the last hope, Pete Paulson.   He was notified by wire and responding promptly he had repairs made quicker than it takes us to tell you about it.  He not only put it in first class running order, but he guarantees it to be good for 75 years more.  In the mean time however we expect to own one of Pete’s make, the kind that never balks.
