NO OTHER AGENCY IS
ANY MORE IMPORTANT
Kvcry place of'importance in this
busy, hustling age, has its local news
paper. It has long since become an
established fact that a newspaper is
the miVror of a thrifty commu lity.
It is also the eye and mouthpiece oil
that community'. Publicity is a Rival
moving- force in these times of liv«j
A newspaper is not only the most
intelligent force in advertising a town
■ and keeping it on the map, but it is
also a telling force between the : elloi
and the buyer. It brings the t\v > to
gether an (Ithereby creates trade. It
1.-. economical means of draw
ing attention to a town as well a;; the
quickest mode "of communication lie
tween the citizens of a community.
Its advertising columns, where the
live, wide awake business men sec
the advantage of letting the publii
know who they are and where they
do business ,in a line spirit of I her
ailty, tells the story of a town's var
ious entei prises. This catches ill eye
of the public an tlriv ts it upon the
IOWIIS with a live newspaper.
Did you ever stop to think, Mi
Business Man, that in this hurrying
age many peope are continually mov
ing about; new people move in who
are not acquainted with the local mer
chants, the manufacturers, the various
news, aa well us the older inhabi
tants, and it is regarded by the most
successful businesses as the liest HUM I -
iuni through which to keep their
trades constiuitly before the public.
People look iu the newspaper for what
they want. They haven't liifne, like
in the olden days gone by, to walk
around-' and hunt bargains. lYopli
.ire in a hurry. The newspaper ear
rios yolir trade an invitation into their
homes and serves as a silent sales
man—in fact, your advertisement
works for you while you sleep.
The advertising advantages of a
paper to a town is not its only value.
The local news, the social go-sip,
which will be found in no other paper,
creates an enthusiasm which gives
life and energy to a place. It helps
neighbors to know about the achieve
ments of each other.- It stimulates
town' pride and lets the world Know
what jou are doing. It is its gio I as

at a distanci'l It gives encourage ,

they would not otherwise: get.. The.
value of a newspaper to a conin uni
ty can liaidty IK- estimated.
The faith a town puts into its news
papers is the faith thai bui'ds tovns.
Faith unlocks tin- door to power; The
IMiwi'i' of the press cannot lo esti'iiat
ed in words. A successful paper must
have the cooperation of the commun
ity. lively advertiser —and every
man in business should advertise—
and every subscriber is the maker of
a good paper. His patronage in either
case is the lifeldood of the enlei'i rise
The unity of the whole, behind and
backing the publisher—makes the
best paper possible in any eot.nmun
ty. Put your need of a good news
paper in the hands of faith anil its
publisher. Faith in the enterprU',
and back of that faith a hearty am!
cheerful patronage. Don't ;u-k how.
why or when. Just do you. levvl best
Voi' mir tnwii pafer, and have in
abiding faith, which is tlie grriitlnir
acle worker of the age.
Many a place has grown from a
mere hamlet w a big thriving town
by the efforts of its newspaper, and
the faith its citizens had in it, and
backed up that faith with coopera
tion with the publisher.

To the Editor: The offer to cancel
all allied debts reminds us of the old
maid that belonged to the church in
which osme one was always straying
"from the straight and narrow way and
asking for forgiveness. At last the
preacher was guilty of kissing a sla
ter. He admitted hi ; guilt and asked
forgiveness. As the question was be
ing voted on and the sister was call
ed she arose and said: "Brethren and
sisters, I've betjp a member of this
church for thirty years and it has
been kissing and forgiving and forgiv
ing and kissing and I've had all the
forgiving to do and none of the kisa
ing; so I vote no."
It seems that the United States will
have all of the forgiving to do.
