With the compliment« of the season, '
we place before the appreciative public
the enlarged edition of the A dvektisek
with the a«« 11 rance that its success ami
proiqierity during the coming year will
lie even greater than that of the past.
It has been just seven month« since
the weekly A dvektisek made it« debut,
and throughout that time we have hail
all the success than any one but an ali
tor could desire. Our advertising pat
ronage lias l»een of the l«est, all available
Spaci* lading taken, and to afford more
to the live public to our principal object
in enlarging. Hitherto, our p.q»er has
liven too small to admit of the publics*
lion of details, a brief form of which is
just w hat is wanted by up-to-date ¡»eo-
ple, am! just w hat we are now prepared
to give to the public nt the nominal price
of fifty cents per year.
With live reporters on the track of all
local new s items, and modern office fa
cilities, we shall turn out the liest, most
attractive ami moat serviceable paper of
its size published. We will not I m ? satis

rangement of reading matter, etc.,—but
it shall la* our aim to produce a paper
that will be a model for others. We al
ways lead, let those follow w ho are com-

Montana** Defeated Team.
The Butte, Montana, foot ludl team
jiassed through Ashland. Sunday, on
their return from Sun Francisco, where
thev • nlaved
ami lost a game with a team
of San Francisco boys. They attributed !
their defeat to the fact that the mud on
the field was too deep, their size and
weight serving them at a disadvantage,
while their opponents,living small,played
all around them, defeating them badly.
During the thirty minutes that the
train stopped here, the Iwys'of the
team had quite a little sjx>rt at the ex
pense of our city marshal.
The players of the Ashland Normal
requested the Montana team to side
track their car ami they (the Normal
team) would show them how to play foot
ludl. Owing to lack of time, the invi
tation was not accepted.

Money in Farming.
It is a notable fact that all farming in
terests improve where it is possible to
utilize the water that the wells on the
place will produce. How few people
think of the value of water for irrigation,
and w hat could be produced at a mini
mum cost if it were used. The question
has been heretofore how* to get the water
to the surface economically, and this has
been accomplished by the use of Gaso
