The city authorities are favor
ably disposed toward securing
better equipment for the Arc de
partmcnt. More modern appi
uncos for fire fhrhtimr arc need
ed. It would seem that the boat
that can be gotten would be none
too trood for St. Johns. While
the fire commission has recom
mended a combination nose and
chemical truck, yet many of ou
citizens believe the equipment
wou d not be complete and ade
quatc unless a pumping engine
also be secured. The former
would cost about ?5(!00, while a
trinhi combination fire fighting
machine would cost close to
S10.000. It would be aiumrcn
to all that the best way to acquire
this equipment would be to vote
uuon a bond issue lor tne pur
pose at a special election. Twenty
year bonds would bo equivalent
to Portland eventually paying
the untie na . vm y this city in
the meantime would enjoy its
use by payment of the intcros
only. There is no apparent ca
or excuse for paying for sue
apparatus out ol tne genera
fund, with a corrosnoiiding
crease in the lax levy. It is not
right that our present population
should burden itself to provid
Homethimr that will benefit
much larger population later on
Lot Dos tori tv help to pay the bill
because it will reap a large
measure of the benefit).
If there be one better way than
another to ruin a town, it is for
those who live in it to iro abou
imoloirizimr for its existence,
There nru some who are always
ready to say, by their actions
at least, that this place don'
amount to much. They will to
Vou that the town is (lead; that
no one would think of stopping
here; that some town adjacent
is more rosnectab e more enter
prising, has better people, better
enjoyments, is ahead ol us in
everything. This is all wrong
Hvcn if it be true, no one shouli
cvdr admit it, when it conies to
to making a comparison. Kver
good citizen of this town, shouk
take a snecial local pride in al
that purlains to home. The
schools, the churches!, thonmuse
mnntfl. t ho business, nloasures
the plcfifiw, the eololfrntlons. in
fact everything should be loolc
on by our own people as just as
good as can be gotten up else
where. The town that nays
"we can, will always succeed
The town that nny. "Oh.
don't know. I don't think it wil
amount to much," in never of
muoh force. I f you have no locn
pride, borrow noma.
St. Johns citizens should spurn
their money in bt. Johns, hvery
time a citizen of St. Johns spends
his monoy elsewhere for goods
that are sold here ol as gooi
quality and al as low prices, he
works indirectly against himself
as a resident of St. Johns, who
is or should be concerned with
the unbuilding of his own city.
That it is the duty of every citi
zen of St, Johns who has at heart
the advancement and prosperity
of this city, to trade at homo
as far as possible to do so, needs
no argument. It means the
building up of more enterprises
in bt. Johns, which will con
tribute to tho city's growth and
enrichment all along tho line.
Tho wisdom of patronwing homo
industries and home people
should not be underestimated.
An old maid in St. Johns had
nearly passod through this jour
noy of lifo without attracting
any attention until one day. by
accident, she caught her skirt on
a nail and tore it just as high as
you now seo the slit, bho had
not noticed the effect that this
slit had given to her appearance
until sho noticed a neighbor man
who had called taking very much
of an mtorost in her, Anyhow,
this couple was seen frequently
in one another's company after
this, and the story goes that they
were soon married. I do not
know this to bo a fact, but as
she no doubt told her story, as
women usually do, hence the slit
skirts, tiood Government uiu

The Best Light
At The Lowest Cost
ELECTRIC LIGHT is the most suitable for homes,
offices, shops and other places needing light.
Electricity can be used in any quantity, large
or small, thereby furnishing any required
amount of light. Furthermore, electric lamps
can be located in any place, thus affording any
desired distribution 01 light.
No other lamps possess these qualifications, there
fore it is not surprising that electric lamps are
rapidly replacing all others in modern establishments.
