New Way of Judging People.
At a lecture here recently the statement was made that you
could determine the average intelligence of a community by the
forms of entertainment patronized ; that if the halls were packed
at lectures and high class entertainments, the people of the commu
nity are a thinking, cultured people but if such entertainments are
poorly supported and the cheap, light, trashy shows draw packed
houses the people do not think.
This was a new way to us of fixing the intellectual standards of
a community, but it seems a fair way the more we think of it.
If the people of a community turn out in large crowds to wit
ness a performance made up of low comedy, eccentric dancing,
trashy songs and with many lines bordering on the vulgar they
must have a form of intelligence to which such things appeal.
If the people do not go to hear lectures where important ques
tions are discussed or go to plays which depict the best in literature,
they do not care for such things.
When you look at the matter from this view point you can
arrive at but one conclusion and that is that it is a just way to
judge the people of a community.
In making the above statement we would not want any one to
conclude that we think that because a person attends an entertain
ment which is largely light comedy that he is not intelligent and
cultured. We believe in comedy,, in humor, in wit. We believe
that all of these are necessary to make life really worth while.
But the serious, the important, the beautiful and the pathetic things
also are need id and they should be mixed with the light, frivolous
and amusing. People need a balanced ration in their entertain
ments. Why not try an experiment ? It would be certain to prove
interesting. Here in Hillsboro where you know everyone, look over
the audiences at the entertainments you attend. See who attends
the light frothy shows. See who attends the best things. See
who attends both kinds. Then judge how true was the statement
of the lecturer.
Candidacy of Senator Foraker.
Former.U. S. Senator Joseph B. Foraker has announced that
he will be a candidate for U. S. Senator from Ohio in the coming
primary. Senator Foraker was born and reared in Highland county
and is one of the nation's ablest men. The people of Highland
county are justly proud of its famous son.
If the Republican party is to become the conservative party of
the nation, Senator Foraker is that party's ideal candidate for
United States senator. We consider him one of the big men of the
country. He has wide learning and large experience and possesses
a clear analytical mind. In addition to all these qualities he is a
remarkable orator, forceful, eloquent and convincing. He could
not be other than a conservative.
And here it may be well for us to define what we mean by a
conservative. A conservative is one who is opposed to changing
the existing order of things, believing the present conditions are
for the best ; has .none or little sympathy or regard for new ideas
and views of a political nature.
Why do we so confidently assert that Senator Foraker could not
be other than a conservative ? The answer is easy. Under exist
ing conditions Senator Foraker has prospered and succeeded. He
arose to a high position in the affairs of the-nation and became
immensely wealthy. . It was becanse of the popularity of liberal or
progressive ideas that he was not re-elected to the United States
senate or nominated for president. For the last thirty years at
least, he has had as his intimate friends and associates the wealthy
and the aristocratic and his business dealings have been exclusively
with men of great wealth and big business. The people whom he
Considers of importance have prospered under existing conditions.
Such an environment can have but one result upon a man. It
will inevitably cause him to think and believe that as he has pros
pered and his friends and associates have prosp'ered that the condi
tions which have brought this about are right. He is certain that
if people are poor and needy, live in squalor and want that it is then
own fault. He will sympathise with them and give liberally from
his bounty for their relief. He can not, however, see that social
or political conditions are to blame. There is one statement of
Christ's that he absolutely believes, "the poor you have with you
always" and he does not think it worth while to attempt to lessen
their number. He judges the prosperity of the nation by the
prosperity and contentment of his friends and business associates.
And we believe that he thinks that what willjincrease the wealth
of the wealthy is also the best for the man in moderate circum
stances and the poor.
These things are true of all of us. ' Few of us worry about
people generally as long as we and our friends are prosperous. It
is human nature.
To all conservatives we commend J. B. Foraker as a candidate
for U. S. senator as we consider him their ablest and most forceful
representative in Ohio and if a conservative is to represent Ohio in
the U. S: senate, he is the logical choice.

The Chicago Tribune has a department in which it publishes
"the best editorial of the day." So far it has not published one
from the News-Herald but this is undoubtedly because the man
who selects them does not see the News-Herald.

Abraham Roberts, son of Abraham
and Mary Roberts, was born March 17,
1840. He departed this life March 19,
1914, aged 74 years and 2 days. He was
one of a family of 9 children, only one
of whom, Mrs. J. W Gossett, survive
him. In his early life he was a boy of
good, quiet, steady habits.
In the year-1805 he united with the
Church of Christ at Prlcetown under
the labors of L. L. Pinkerton. He
always maintained a high conception
of that which was moral and upright ;
and during all the years he was con
fined in the state sanitarium he stolid
ly refused to take part in any of the
amusements -which ho considered not
becoming a Christian.' The fidelity and
faithfulness has now received its, re
ward His has been a gloomy path. Early
In life the curtain was dropped that
cut off all his prospects for enjoyment
in this life ; but that curtain has now
been lifted and he is be holding today,
with an unclouded mental vision, the
magnificent beauties and splendors of
the glory world. "One by one they

One more visit by the death angel
and that family reunion on the other
shore will be completed. v ,
There Is a world above
Where parting Is unknown,
A whole eternity of love
Form'd for the good alone.
And faith beholds the dying here
Transplanted to that happier sphere.
O Lord, in this valley of woe,
Our spirits for Heaven prepare ;
Then shortly we also shall know
And feel what It Is to be there.
