creed, "Let not your right hand
know;' ws knew him aa a friend

Here's a humble suggestion to
our farmer friends and others
who have machine) y or imple
ments any of kind. Whsti you
have finished with them for

weather? Rains and wind and
snow do mors harm to them than

horse sense and economy.

A fellow dropped into the office
the other day and ordered the
paper, and we were pleased.
Said it waa a good paper, and
we were glad. Said It wss
more than worth the money tp
any man of intelligence, and we
were glad. Said it was the
mainstay of the town, and ws
were tickled. Said it was the
greatest booster and the most
reliable town builder and develo
per in this whole community,
andws yelled with Joy. Paid
for his paper, and we slid gently
to the floor in blissful unconsciou-
ness. -Nature had reached its

you see this same little comedy
enacted in every town where
automobiles find their way in the
summer months. At least it is
worth a passing thought ,
And that reminds us that if
we can get every farmer in thie

cial advisability of tying to this
town in hia commercial dealings
it will be a practical step in ad
vance for the future of the whole

better stores and shop andt oth
er business enterprises, and' will
Inject new life into everything
and everybody.' It will increase
the value of the farms - and the
town property and will make
life easier and more attractive in
every way. It will go far to
ward preventing our young man
hood from straying away from
safety and prosperty of the
farmMTrrr-intb the pitfalls ,apd
misery of a hand to mouth exis
tence in some great city. It will
enable thernX to grow strong and
virile manhood on the farm,
while nine out of every ten in the
do to while away the evening great cities become bat an atom
hours. And right here the edi
tor wants to throw out a sugges
tion that means both pleasure
and profit Arrange- to have
a meeting at one of your school
houses or other public places at
least one evening a month, at
which you can all compare notes
on the seasons work, note - the
mistakes that have been made
and devise the best methods of
correcting them the coming year.
You can hot get a dozen farmers
together but what some of them
will have torn: thing .to say of
value to you, something that
perhaps you have not known be
fore, something thst will make
I work lighter and profits greater
tin future years. The social
features alone of such meetings
would drive away the monotony
of the winter evenings and from
a practical standpoint they would
be a great value to , every
who participates.. Get together,
gentlemen - and compare notes.

The farmer Is the back bone
of this town in fact hs is the
mainstay of the nation. Wo can
not place to much emphasis upon
this fact As the America farm
er prospers, so it is with the
county in general and so it will
alWaya be. If the farmer has a
bad -year, the stores and the
shops and the business commu
nity ass whole suffers. Every
body feels the pinch of s dose
season That's one ' of the
reasons why ws of the town
should work in harmony with the
farmer for a better and mors
prosperous community. As hs
encourages us with his patronage
and bis cheerful smile when he
comes to us, so should we return
courtesy for courtesy by giving
him the best that in us, and
by fostering a feeling of brother-,
ly love and comradeship. It will
not hurt the-farmer. It will not
harm us, and tt will do ail of us
a world of good.
