The Local Press
The local paper is not regarded with
the degree of Importance to wbioh it
is entitltd. The live local paper lias a
great influence in the oommnni'y in
wbiob it is published, It may be safe
ly assumed that the e 'Itor is not only
honest and Industrious, but he must
have ability or he oould not success
ful y couduot a local newspaper. Too
often in arranging for plcolos or open
meeting the value of the local paper
s overlooked, The ommittee on ar
rangement manv times will cliee--tully
pay th r nuiar price for flaming
posters b.t tge .i. to buy apace in
the columns of the local paptr Quite
frequnM, tl.e cuiniui tie w 11 send to
fcni' iarge c.ty for the pose-s, then
exinc the ul:t.r of he iucul n v.a-
l'i it to djoi' fpaoe in hie tir
"to- t; o pood f ti.e HHUse." This is
poor tiuhuy. Tne wise committee,
wlen the camp is to have a pnblio
meet lug, will call first upon theedltor
ot tbe local paper and buy some space.
If $5 or tlO is banded to the editor
with a request that he give the com
ing event a good aend off, he can be
trusted to do the generous thing and
t will be known that the meeting Is to
be held. It y u are not to have1 a
meeting, yet woald like to ''stand in"
with tbe local paper, have your camp
card inserted. Ibis will only cost $5
or $10 a year, but it will be money
well expended. We know whereof we
speak. Country editors are onl. hu
man and the members of the wise camp
keep in close touch with them and the
nest touph in to patronize them. Buy
ramp stationary of them and pay for
some spaoe in the calumna of their
papers. Modern Woodman.
