Till'. FROSTY MOliXIXG
The world outdoors is white with
frost, at morning, when I leave the
hay, and I, regardless of the cost, put
up a glad and brave hooray. The frost
is gleaming on the. hills, nnd glittering
along the rales; the doc should put it
lip in pills, the druggist weigh it on
Ills scales. I praise it iu the highest
terms; it is more precious than our
- rolls; for It's the Htuff that kills the
germs, and makes the microbes hunt
their holes. A mortal loses all his pfip
when blistered by a summer sun; he
toils along with weary stop ,nnd feels
as though he weighed a ton. A slight
exertion makes him groan, he's always
In a grouchy mood; in every sliuuv,
every bone, he feels a beastly lassitude.
But when the autumn frost appears
and eager winds his whiskers nip, he
rolls his shirtsleeves to Ills ers, and
looks for some one ho, may whip. Tho
languor of the summer time, the wear
iness of sizzling heat, no more oppress
him when he'd climb around the town
on busy feet. In August I am beastly
eld, ns old as graybeards ever ore; but
when the frost lies on the wold, I'm.
younger than a movlo star.

A NEWSPAPER is measured by the extent of its ser
vice to the people. Its mission is to print the news,
fearlessly and truthfully; to interpret it with independ
ence and fairness; to strive to" guide public opinion in the
right direction; to furnish entertainment for its readers
and to act as sales promoter for merchants among the
people. Its columns of store news should be as interest
ing reading to the buyer as its news columns and its clas
sified pages secure work for the idle and aid in filling long
The new-spaper is really the mirror which reflects
the community. It is the daily chronicle of its life. By it
the visitor or the man afar judges the city. If it is a cred
itable, wide-awake newspaper strongly edited and well
patronized by advertisers, it indicates a prorgessive and
wide-awake community with an alert business element.
As the local newspaper is really the best if not the
onlv means available for the advertiser to reach the neo-
ple with his trade inducemnts, create new customers and ,ni disc"eatthe c1'-;
t n .. i , . .. "No, sweetheart, I mean that
iioiu oiu ones, us conduct, weiiare ana prosperity vitany
concern him, for their interests are mutual. As the news
paper grows and increases in circulation, it correspond
ingly enlarges his market. He reaches an ever-increasing
number of possible customers as the paper extends its
list into the surrounding county. '
If is therefore to the profit of the merchant to co-operate
in building up the local newspaper, for as it is built
up, his own business field is enlarged The growth of the
newspaper is dependent upon this co-operation, upon this
community of interest. The patronage makes possible
such increasingly good local newspapers that there will
no longer remain any reason for subscriptions to outside
papers, with their mailorder bargains.
Only a strong, vigorous, growing newspaper is pro
fitable alike to community and advertiser and such a
property cannot be maintained on insufficient rates.
When a publisher sells advertising at insufficient rates,
he is not only pauperizing himself, but stunting the
growth and improvement of the newspaper, thereby in
juring merchant and community. The advertiser who
forces such conditions is in the long run penalizing him
self by curtailing his market.
A good local paper is the live merchant's best pro
tection from outside competition; It is also the best of
community assets. It is always in the band wagon lead
ing the march for progress. It is a true community build
er and it deserves the heartiest co-operation of the local
merchant as it enables him to help himself and build up
