By publishing tho many notices that are being sentt by differen Government departme-nts to the country papers, the publishers arc giving the public information-vhich the Government desires thorn to receive in the only possible way it can be given witkout putting the Government to an enormous ex pense. The publisher receives noth ing but gratitute from the Govern ment for his sen-ices, and that is all he expects from the Government. But the publisher has aright to ex pect the support of his community the same as a soldier at the front ex pects and deserves it. High Government oflirials, from the President of the United States down to the officers of the State, have expressed their thanks, to the country publisher. ((The country publishers are doing more to win this war than any o'her class of of men,) is a statement often made by high officials. Almost every reader of the country paper and every' advertiser is doing all he can for the boys at the front. We are sorry to say there are a few people who don't appreciate the ser vice rendered by our soldiers. Almost every reader of the coun try paper and every advertiser is do ing something to support the coutry paper.
