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
