1 MEASURING A TOWN
"Show me some copies of the
paper published In your town
nnd I will tell you some facts
about it nnd your people." This
is;what n minister who has trav
eled extensively, and who served
in the legislative halls of an
other state, said some days ago
when asking the writer some
thing about McMlnnville.
"The paper will show me what
business opportunities are open;
it may not tell me fully of pro
fessional opportunities but even
these in a marked degree will be
revealed. But I will scan ten
copies. If I am wrong in my
conclusions it will be the first
The stocks of gods carried by
the merchants, he would judge
by their business capacity by the .
style and amount of the adver-'
tising they employed the paper
would show him.
To know something of the
social activities he would Bean
the paper. f
To know something of the
pursuits of the people of the
town nnd tho condition of the
surrounding country, ho would
porsuo tho paper.
The homo paper tolls tho story
fully to tho active, observant
business man who novor saw
our town or its people.
If tho town merchants are not
all represented in its columns
it would spell "avorago busi
ness." If the local columns
showed a scarcity of news and
little of the social life it would
spell in staring lettors "Little
Doing." McMlnnville Nows Re
porter. Once again penny postngo Is
being considered In Congress.
At first glance the mailing of a
letter for a penny looks like a
good proposition. But since the
average man will not write more
than 52 letters a year, it isn't
goin to be such a saving for him
after all. Then who is It going
to benefit? Why, the big con
cerns and the l small order
houses that send out letters by
the tens of thousands.
With a population one-twenty-fifth
that of the United States
Switzerland has a trained army
five times as large as that of the
United States, yet Switzerland
is considered the most demo
cratic country in the world.
It is natural to suppose that
no Americans are going abroad
except for adequate reasons and
it is not for either war maniacs
or a spineless Congress to for
bid their going.

Get a Fresh Start!
For men who got away to a false start on a pipe
or home-made cigarettes Prince Albert has a word
or two for what ails their smokeappetites !
Forget you ever tried to smoke, for Prince Albert is so
different such a fine flavor, so cool and cheerful and
friendly, you'll get a new idea of smoke joy I The patented
process fixes that and cuts out bite and parch!
And this little preachment is also for men who think
they're on the right trade All to be said is that the sooner
you lay out a nickel or a dime for a supply of Prince
Albert, the sooner you'll make a discovery that'll be
worth a lot to your peace of mind and
Get the idea of smoking all you want
without a comeback that's P. A.
