The following squib taken from
the Grosham Outlook proves how
much confidence some editors
have in the great National game
of baseball, and such items cause
more harm to the snort than any
other kind of knocking. 'Tis a
pity that editors will give ex
pression to such an unworthy
and unmerited thought:
"That world's championship
series will be a see-saw to the
end. Of course it would never
do to shut the mimes oil' loo soon.
There is too much money in the
irate receipts to curtail the sport
before the specified number of
games have been played."
A couple of years ago a cranky
sortof an old man came into this
office and stopped his paper be
cause something in it did not
hist suit his fancy. We have
frequently met him on the street
since that tune and it is amusing
to nolo the look of surprise on
the old fellow's face that we are
still in existence regardless of
the fact that he stopped bis pa
per. Someday and it wont be
long either- that old gentleman
will turn up his toes. His earth
will bo still forovor. Neighbors
and friends will follow Ins life
less clay to the silent city and
lay thorn to rest among the Mow
ers. An obituary will be pub

what a kind father, a good neigh
bor and beloved citizen be was
which the recording angel will
overlook for charity's Hake, and
in n very short time he will be
forgotten. As he lies out in the
cold, cold graveyard wrapped in
the silent slumbers of death, he
will never know that the last
kind word spoken of him was
by the editor of that paper
which in Mie he so sp lofti v
"stopped." Did you over pause

counties in the preparation and
installation of a great valley
exhibit at the Panama-Pacific
imposition i aun I'nincisco in
1910. It has boon decided that
tills is a hotter plan than to
attempt to put in an exhibit from

has mot with general approval
and its success is already assured.
Hatched in April, 1912. and

record for the production of
cacklebernos in one year, Sho
laid 23 oggs in twolvo months,
which is tho highost record in
tho United Stntoe and two more
than the world's record. Hor
most notablo feat, and which
probably has never been equalod,
was the laying of 95) eggs in 100
consecutive days during tho
spring months. Tho hon is a
cross between tho Plymouth liock
and Whito Loghorn breeds.

ELECTRIC LIGHT is the most suitable for homes,

Electricity can be used in any quantity, large

desired distribution 01 light
No other lamps possess these qualifications, there
