The Paper and the People. w
It is little use for the local editor th
to waste his lungs and sprain his h
spng in trying tQ bim t? town When wi
the atiiii3 all stand ar'ound with d
theie hands in their pockete .Hnd wait ,ag
for something to turn up. If the bu
capitalists or busines men do not peat a
their aboulders to the wheel and do a
a little boosting, it is useless for the
edit3r to try to boom things. He of
can write "IWQn" ihtieloq until Le hi
gets bald-headed, but if the citizens Q'
themselves do not take hold and push bi
the town will forever stick in the mud. W
Of what use is it for the local paper d'
to suggest improvements and new sE
enterprises if the suggestions are P
never acted upon? One man cannot h
boom a town. It requires the con- h
certed action of the citizens. ' When P
one man at tempts to shoulder a town ti
and carry it there are always a lot of a
cranky kickers who are always ready n
to jump on top of the load. Unity C
of action is what counts.-[[Fort Mill 0

his town, this "'brainless wonder" can
aulways see a sinister motive in his C
article. But my, my, wha', a chiame:
Ieon t his wonderful "what is it?" is.
Let the editor say what he thinks,
honestly, and what the citiz,ens truly ~
know of the town and1 her people,anl r
what a bowvl goes forth. He can see
nothing :in anything, hiR sight is
-dimmed and his judgment is warped.
H fow he prates, vamps and champs
the bits, and, worst of all, the poor
fool has followers who believe every
word that falis from the lips of this r
assinine paragon. If the editor
boists his town, or if ho roasts his a
towvn the true motive can never be c
found for it.

be oxpected to pick up the to-vn and dI
