The first month of the exist
ence of the Herald has passedj
ami it is still here, not-with
standing the fact that sijjiie said
it would not last thirty davs.
During the nftmth we canvassed
a part of one afternoon and aside
from not to exceed twenty people,
we have not done any soliciting
to gain subscribers. Over thirty
new names have been added to
the list the past two week which
shows that the paper is satis
factory to the people. Ko all
of which we are very thankful
and will try to merit a continu
ance of the confidence given ifc
so far. If the present rate of
increase in our subscription list
and advertising keeps up an
other month we will be forced
to add another page to the paper
in order to furnish the usual
cjuoto of reading matter. We
are not giving 24 colutis of
reading matter eac issue but
what we do give is not paid
locals and patent medicine puffs.
Compare the Herald wit other
country papers, no matter where
published, we do not fear such
comparisons. We ask our friends
to give us all the little news
items that they know of and . by
helping us to make a good paper
you are helping the town and
incidentally yourself.

It has beeff rjjpeatly statin
that the republican party is not
the party of panics; tli.jj.t panics
can only come through a fearof
the election of a democratic pres
ident. Now let's not lie about
a matter that even the youngest
child in school knows sonns'thing
of. What can we call tjie great3
stringency of last November but
a panic? Was there a feat of a
democratic president being elect
ed at that time? If so why
didn't that fear keep right on
until now? The fact of the
matter is that a republican pres
ident don't help matters a little
bit in such cases and another
fact is that during the panic of
1SSK5, brought on the machine
politicians sani iy the tear that
Uryan would be elected, any one
having money in a solvent bank
could check it out at any time,
but last fall there were few banks
where one could get his money,
except in little driblets.
Some people object to State
ment No. 1 for the reason thev
say that a man must declare who
he will vote for before he is
nominated. Well, didn't he do
,so under machine rule? Just
ask some honest ex-member of
the legislature if he didn't see
the "Hoss" before he was nomi
nated. Inquiries were made as
to how he would vote before he
was nominated and if he was
found to be the right" kind of
man for the machine he went
in with u whoop, if not he was
relegated to the scrap heap.

But in the campaign of 1828the
general who had done things dif
ferently at the battle of New Or
leans, seems to have stimulated in
men who advocated or oppose! him
a desire to follow new methods.
Jackson's first successful cam
paign in 1828 was opened by a cel
ebration of his famous battle in the
city of New Orleans. Hero of the
battle and presidential candidate,
he attended as the guest of fie
state. On iis way from his home
he was entertained at Natchez. A
procession, a banquet afid a ball
kept him busy. A fleet of steamers
was sent from New Orleans to meet
him. A throng greeted him when
he landed. Four days of festivity,
news of which stirred the people
throughout the land, followed.
This was the beginning. With
