A friend writing from an outside point . ,. .,.., ,1 ..
sands this boquet to the Mail:
Your paper looks hotter all the time
and I think your businesslike views con
cerning tho rival town aro Just the thing.
Yon take tho right position.
Your town has had lots of freeadvertis.
ing, and I am confident that tho Mail
is in a largo measuro responfeihlo for it.
In fact I noticed that many say it mujt
bos live place to support a daily paper
Tbo truth is, nothing gives a town rank
among tho outside world liko tho fact'
that it has a daily newspaper. After
that is an established fact peoplo begin
to remember the nace. and if Is classed
as tomcthing raoro than a country town,

D. W. Small, the contractor on tho

The work is prosecuted whenever tho.
weather will permit, and Mr. Small will
keep hie own ten teams at work right

may bo taken off until bitter weather,
when tbo force will again ba increasod.
. Any report that Mr. Small has i"ehut

trouble in gcttiup their money is entire
ly erroneous. The men get their cae.li
on pay day, the 20th of each month, and
eome of them get it before. Tho men

slaughterhouse, and if they are not well
fed their looks belie them,
Mr, Small's contract ezlends from

all the heavy grading botween Marsh

feet, and the work now being done is on
he heavy cuts and fills.
Mr. Small cnu6iuera that over ono
