"A Reader" Complains.
Last week we received a letter severely criticising us for pub
lishing the article by Dr. Brown on the European War. It was
signed "A Reader." The letter was well written and very strongly
stated the views of the writer. If it had been signed so that we
would know the name of the writer we would be pleased to pub
lish it, if he so desired. If, however, the writer has not the cour
age to back his criticism with his name it must go where all such
communications go, in the waste basket. We will be glad if the
author will send us his name and the communication will then be
published, with or without his name, or destroyed as he desired.
We have no objection to people criticising our policy in the
conduct of this paper and will always give consideration to their
wishes and views, as thereby we may secure helpful suggestions
which will aid us in furnishing a better paper to the people of High
land county. Articles not signed though will have little weight.
Will "A Reader" kindly tell us who he is ?
Why Not Lights Until Alidnight ?
Council and the Light Co. have so far failed to come to an
agreement in regard to lighting the streets of Hillsboro.
Until a definite settlement of the matter is made why should
not council and the Light Co. enter into a temporary contract for
the lighting of the streets until midnight. This would relieve the
situation materially. It would mean that the town would be lighted
as long as any business houses were open and until only a few
stragglers were left on the streets. Any one who is out after mid
night ought to be required to stumble around in the dark.
The worst feature of the streets being unlighted is not the in
dividual inconvenience suffered, but the general injury which comes
to the town.
To have the streets lighted until midnight would relieve the
situation. Can not council make a temporary arrangement where
by such a contract could be made for a month or two at a reasona
ble figure ?

Opening: Day of School.
Have you noticed how bright and happy are the faces of the
children as you see them returning to school ? If you have you
must be convinced that there is no truth in the old joke about
children hating to go to school but that on the contrary they really
enjoy it and are glad school has opened.
tfut then you have always known there was no truth in that
popular joke. As a child while you were never willing to admit it,
you were always glad when school opened after the summer vacation.
You had a desire to learn, you longed for the rivalry of the class
room, you looked forward with fond anticipation to the pleasant
social relations of the school room and play ground. Of course in
those days you did not know why you wanted to go to school, you
only know that you did, and that under no condition must you let
any one know it. That for you to do this would cause you to be
considered peculiar and if you were a boy, you would lose standing
with your playmates and suffer from their taunts and ridicule ; that
you would have been considered a sissy, a goody goody and teach
er's pet. So never for a moment would you reveal your secret and
always pretended to hate to go to school.
No doubt children will always continue to make these pretenses
and the old joke of the punishment that it is for a child to go to
school will continue in popular favor and be rung with all of its
changes. But just notice the faces of the children on their way to
school and remember how you really felt as a boy and then still
laugh at the old joke.

Doubtless you know tho dangerof delayed treatment
of collo and other diseases. You also realize that
wrongly applied remedies are often worse than no
treatment at all. In other words, not to diagnose
a disease accurately may prove fatal. Every owner
should be able to recognize an ailment and give
correct treatment at the first symptoms. Prompt
action Is the great secret
of treating horses.
