Take Torn Local rAn:n. Do the
city papers say anything in regard to
your own town? Nothing. Do they
contain notices of your schools, eliurcli
cs, improvements and hundreds of other
local matters of interest which your
home paper publishes without pay?
Not an item. Do they ever say a wonl
calculated to draw attention to your
county and aid in its progress and en
terprise? Not a line. And there are
men who take .such contracted views of
this matter, that unless they are getting
as many square inches of reading mat

per they think they are not getting the
worth of their money,,
