When you want any public cause
served, to whom do you naturally
go? To the newspaper, of course.
You never think of asking a great
store or a factory to lend its influence.
Only the newspaper is expected to
devote its money and energy to serv
ing the public welfare. Houston

Advance arrivals of spring goods
show that our merchants are wide
awake and have purchased largely
of seasonable merchandise in all
lines. It proves also that Hickman
is a desirable trading point and that
the prices and excellent selections
handled here hold the trade of the
surrounding country. Now, if we
just had hitch-racks for the con
venience of those who come here to
trade, everything would be lovely.

A scientist says that "if the earth

The Illinois Central Railroad
Company, won out before the State
Railroad Commission Wednesday in
a matter of citizens of Wingo, who
petitioned the commission to require
the railroad company to stop its fast
trains trom the bouth and boutbwest
at that station. Upon showing that
the company made all necessary stops
at the station and that its fast train
would miss New York connections
by even hesitating at Wingo, the
commission decided against the peti
tioners. A young Hickman drummer was
taking a vacation with his uncle in
the contry and was called upon to
ask the blessing, and not being
accustomed to it he promply tackled
the dithculty in the following words :
"We acknowledge the receipt of
your favor of this date. Allow us
to extend our gratitude for this ex
pression of god will. Trusting that
our house may merit your confidence
and have many orders from you this
fall, we are yours truly, amen."
The old man will say grace hearaf
ter. Everything is being reformed
these days everything except
housecleaning. Women still clean
houses in the same old way they did
in old Pharaoh's time. They still
leave tacks on the floor and buckets
of water where baby is sure to fall
into them and sweep the stairs down.
No one seems to have yet thought of
leaving the water on the floor, put
ting the tacks in the pail and sweep
ing the stairs up, throwing the resi
dum out of the garret window. No
one ever sends the windows down to
the laundry or puts eaude cologne on
the mop. But some day there will
arise a reformer in skirts and these
things will be attended to.
