Barber, hit any of our readers, \ye hope it will help- to guard t'leir tongues from this terrible habit. We could each luue at night feeling better if during the day we would make it a rule to speak of others as we would they speak of us. Oftimes a hap py life is shadowed by the awful habit of possip. Halter thy tongu$ that it speak not evil of thy neighbor. Fashion lias decreed that women must reduce in weight in order to wear the latest gowns. What a calamity for those who cannot reduce, and yet will not wear an out of date garment! The handsomest, keened and most brilliant man in this com munity .owes us a dollar on Sub scription, and we are expelling him to favor us with an early call. (That ought to bring 'em all in.) the article elsewhere A. lccal calamity howler had the audacity to come into our office yesterday and open up with his customary oration on "hard times." We permitted him to execute a masterly retreat. American women are wearing: military frocks this season, and 'American men are trying to srteer as clear of European "fash ions" as honor and common | sense will permit. Manufacturers arc known the worid over by the labels on their goods, and wide awake mer chants are known by their ads in the local paper. Are you advertising? Deposit a dollar in any bank and it will draw 4 pet cent inter est. Invest lt?in 52 issues of this paper and it will yield 1,000 per cent before the year is up. Bank with us. If this country muEt be forced into war wc expect our public off icp holders to be the first to enlist. Then wc mere mortals can bask in the sunshine of their patriotism. Here's a bully good idea! Let's have a law requiring every sen ator and congressman who votes for war to enlist and go to the frount. Then there'll be no war. v. ? ? * It the re& of the European countries get the itch and jump into the scrap, wc won't have to bother about the immigration question for the next few week?. A wise man once had a dollar which he wanted to invest where it would bring him the greatest possible returns. We got it. Paying the income tax is o distinction fevy of us crave. ? ? ? .

Now just why does a ? con ceited man ' invariably walk | alone? Some folks wander in tbcir minds, btti are never able to stray far. And just why does the month j of March lunimi one ol J <? Cannon? Some fellows are always en- 1 thusiastic when they talk about | themselves. Drug users have suddenly sprung into prominence as a| drug on the market. The professional kicker kicks at everything in sight and dents nothing but himself. if a man talks too much he is a gossip. If he folks too little he | is a Clam. Poor man! .
