m ount release.
With this number of the Herald begins the service of
the writer as editor and business manager. As to the
general conduct of the paper no promises are made except
th a t it will be handled as capably as is posible along lines
tending not only to the betterment of the paper but so far
as possible to the betterm ent of local conditions. The in­
terests of the Herald and of the community are along the
same lines and the readers of this paper may rest assured
that every thing possible will be done for the good of both.
Without the help of the readers and friends of the
paper as well as the individual friends of the writer no
great betterment of the paper will be possible hence it is
hoped that both will be forthcoming, both in a financial
as well as a moral way. In return, reciprocity is promised
in every particular. Improvements in the general con­
duct and appearance of the paper will be forthcoming in a
direct proportion to the good will expressed by friends.
A helping hand from the citizens of this city and valley
will not only be received with appreciation but the re­
sults will be immediately apparent in not only the appear­
ance but in the news value of the Herald.
In retiring from the editorial desk of this paper, Mr.
Levar goes with the very best wishes not only of the in­
coming editor but of the many friends he has made while
occupying th a t position. It is hoped th at the “ new man”
a t the editorial pencil will receive the same courteous
treatm ent accorded to him during his tenure.

Preceding “ The House of the Golden
W indows” is a list of exceptional Reid
and Ridgely featu res. To the motion
picture public they are known as the
two “ R ’s. ” The photoplays in which
they have co-starred are “ The Golden
C hance,” "T he Love M ask,” and “ The
Selfish W om an.” They also appeared
to g eth e r in “ The Chorus L ad y .”
“ The House of the Golden W indow s”
contains a story quite different from
w hat they have done before as th ere is
a delicate touch o f fantasy intertw ined
with a plot of tense human emotion,
love, excitem ent and huppiness.

been on the screen all too m any.

nating the three bridges within the city
lim its; th a t the long bridge beyond the
W atson farm be replaced with a fill
and th at the short bridge a t the W at­
son dairy barn be rebuilt.
Included in
the recom m endation will be the oro-
vision th a t all the road from the north
end of the H enry stre e t bridge to th>
McCurdy farm be graveled.
In detail the im provem ents to bi
recom mended will mean the filling of
the th ree bridges in the city limits,
with proper culverts to accommodate
the w inter flow of w ater, and the grad
ing and graveling of the intervening
roadway. A t the long W atson bridge
It is sta te d th a t Mr. W atson will give
to the county a rig h t of way for the
fill to the riv h t of the present bridge
and n earer to the hill and th a t the
grade will be lowered to a considerable
ex ten t, thus lessening the am ount of
fill necessary and also lim iting the
width of the rig h t of way.
A t the short bridge the approaches
will be widened out by heavier cuts at
e ith e r end and the hill a t the north end
of the bridge will be m aterially lower­
ed to give as good a view of the road
aheau as possible.
Aside from these
points the road will follow the present
line and grade.

P lease Note!
We have received a number of inquiries from students of the
City school and others who are interested in our stenographic
course, and who have expressed themselves as having decided
to take up this work at a later period. For the information of
those who contemplate joining the NIGHT class we wish to ad-
\ise that on account of the limited amount of time in the Night
ichool that we will only be aide to have two classes of stenogra­
phers until these two classes are graduated which will require
about six months. We accordingly urge those interested to join
when the day school opens.
This announcement, of course, has no connection with the Day-
school where students may enroll at any time.
