A Grand Concert.
The fireman's concert, which was
given last Monday night should make
those who pan-Icipat.ad in it very proud,
for the reason that they r~nve toa nice
audience, an evening of great pleasure
as well as the privilege to contribute to
a most worthy cause. Those who did
not attend saved a few cents, but they
lost the touch of enlightment and relin
ed influence, which goes far towards
making the world what was intended by
the original Designer
We make no exaggerated assertion
when we say the performaic.e was far
beyond the expections of those present,
hbens it was known that these ladies
and gentlemen did not have the time to
practice that the magnificient musical
numbers was entitled to. but notwith
standing this, they gave their audience
a most delightful entertainment which
was highly appreciated.
We would not know where to begin
to select special numbers in the pro
gramme to make special mention of. for
the whole proe'ramme was grandly ren
det-d. The last nurmber. Oesten's "In
vitat-lon to the alanee" by the entire

A citizen should never become too
busy to lend a moral support to a cause
which means so much to this communm

tense interest in the cause of education:
these men did this as a patriotic duty,
and as busmness men of observation. tney

up. If men who have large ho!dinga

Icum for sale by E. C. Horton.
I would like to enter my vrotest
against the vandalism that is being dis
playcd in our town at present. For
years the only beauty of which the town 1
could boast has consisted of the trees
planted in our streets and public places I
by public spirited men of the past. I
say. of the past., because so far as I can
learn Mr. W. S. Harvin is the only man
living in the town now who has ever
been directly or indirectly responsible
for putting out any considerable nun
ber of trees. In the fifteen years that I
have spent here I have sten trees cut
down scores of times, but practically
none set out. Recently this seemz to
have reache-1 a craze, and for the pa.t
sixty days axes have been going contin
tinually destroying and disfiguring trees
rthat would have been a pleasure to the
eves and would have afforded comifrt
able shade for years to come.
The court house commission has just
recently destroyed the good trees stand
ing on the edge of the side walk upon
the olea that there were no others on
the edge of the side walk in line with
it.- Of course it is easier to obtain synm
metry by destroying one tree than by
setting out a few others in the same
The telephone company here has
shown a ruthless disregard of the trees
n many occasions: for instance, when
they cut all of the foliage oil one side of
the trees on the east side walk of the
ourt house square. On another oea+
on simply and solely to save a few fee:.
of wmire when they removed the poe
and w ires from the court house grounds
they ran the wires across the corner of 1
he'square and cut oiT limbo as big as a
man's body high up on one side of the
finest t:-ees on the square, a :ree that is
still hardy, strong and vigorous, andi
that old settlers say was not set out on (
ithe suare but is of original growth and.
spare when the town was laid out.
The town council in July, went to
work to trim up the trees. although
trimming a tree in July usually means,
we are informed, either death or a last
ing injury to the tree. In this trimming
hey cut o:f immense limbs close up to
the' trunk and made no provision to
ward protecting the trees from injury.
The town council, in times past,. ini
order to clay the streets dug deep ditch-1
es close up on both sides of the center
rows of trees, not attempting to protect
the trees in any way. They in addition
to cutting ol the supply of moisture un
der ground. packed the clay tight on
the sraeabout the roots of the trees,
thus draining the water from around
the center row. Now the cry has gone
1up that the center row must be destroy
ed and removed because they are dead.1
I said in the beginning that this wasi
vandalism. It seems so to me, and I feel'<
better for having said what I think
about the matter, and I will now keep
quiet and stop kicking.
H Fowever, in closing I would just make
a suggestion: thmt some thought should
be given to planting new trees and not
entirely to their- destruction.
