We like the business-like way in
which the White Town people do
things. It is their progressive, pub
lic spirit that has developed that
community so rapidly during the
past decade; All honor to them!
Mr. Editor:-Ten years ago the
statistics showed an unusual sacri
fice of one hundred thousand souls
to the god of Bacchus. ', .
Kecently the claim, I notice, is sixty
thousand. Has the number been re
duced (40 per cent.) forty per cent
within the last ten years? If so,that
is a very strong argument in favor
of National prohibition. Could we
not get at the facts? Yours,

Wheat Followed by Fine Corn.
We have been informed that Hon.
W. R. Parks has a crop of except
ionally fine corn growing upon the
land from which he harvested the
large yield of wheat this year.
There is no reason why the farmers
pf this county should buy western
flour, corn and meat when our soil
will produce a crop of wheat and
corn in one year. Let every farmer
manage as well as Mr. Parks does
and our old county in a few years
will prosper as never before.

Your Obituary Some Day.
A couple of years ago a cranky
sort of an old man came into this
office and stopped his paper because
something in it did not just suit his
fancy. We have frequently met him
on the street since that time and it is
amusing to note the look of surprise
on the old fellow's face that we are
still in existence regardless of the
fact that he stepped his paper.
Some day-and it won't be long
either-that old gentleman will turn
up his toes. His heart will be still
ed forever. Neighbors and friends
will follow his lifeless clay to the
silent city and lay it to rest among
the flowers. An obituary will be
published in these columns telling
what: a kind father, a good neighbor
and beloved citizen he was-which
the recording angel will overlook
for charity's sake, and in a short
time he will be forgotten. As he
lies out there in the cold, cold grave
yard, wrapped in the silent slumber
of death, he will never know that
the last kind word spoken of him
was by the editor of that paper
which he so spitefully "stopped."
Did you ever pause just a moment
to think that your editor, whoever
he may be, will write your obituary
