WEDNESDAY, JULY 4, 1917.
Back up the president till the kaiser backs down.
If the government don't seize the summer's crops the
thieving speculators will. Time to act, gentlemen!
Forget it, sonny. When you get to the trenches you
won't have any time left for making love to the pretty
Don't grieve because you let a good thing slip by when
you failed to buy liberty bucds. Another opportunity
will be along soon.
Fellow who owes us four years subscription stopped us
on the street and inquired if we had bought a Liberty
Bond. We told him!
When the boys get back from France the fellow who
was taken by the slack of the pants and literally kicked
into the trenches will be the biggest 1 ero of them all-by
his own words!
Washington dispatches advise us that a certain United
States senator offered a bribe of $5,000 if his son were
exempted from the draft. The party to whom the offer
was made promptly communicated the fact to the Attor
ney General of the United States.
We are watching for the next act in the drama of
Will it come?
THE FOURTH OF JULY.
As a national holiday July 4th, or Independence Day is
probably more generally observed by all the people than
and day set apart as a holiday; and as it dates the period
of American Independence and the establishing of prin
ciples on which has been founded the grandest apd great
est republic the world has ever known, the patriotism of
every loyal heart moves on him to commemorate the day
by ,observing it in some way, either collectively or in
There are clouds overhead and convulsions threatening
under our feet, and while we reverently return thanks
to Almighty God for the past we should carefully survey
and consider the dangers that exist on the ground we
must march over in the future.
WHO WILL IT BE? WHAT WILL YOU DO?
With the actual draft upon us, there is much specula
tion as to who will be the first to go from our own com
munity. But whoever it may be, we who remain should
see that they are not forgotten by the "folks back home."
We should ascertain the camps to which each one is as
signed, and then through a home committee see that
each is generously supplied with magazines, home papers,
comfort bags, cheery letters, and anything that will make
life more' cheerful to them. No single individual going
forth from this community to fight for his country should
be overlooked, and all should be shown equal courtesy
and attention. When the good people of this community
organize such a committee the editor will be the first t'o
contribute by furnishing a copy of this paper each week to
each soldier who goes from our midst. What will you do?
ADVERTISING WILL 1)0 IT.
The billions of dollars that our government and foreign
nations are borrowing from our p~eop~le will be spent right
in this country for food stuffs and wvar suppllies of all
kinds. The hulk of this money wvill find its way into the
hands of the millions of wage Qarners, a-nd they in turn
will spend most of it for the necessities of life. This
commnity will get its share of those billions.
Thle shrewd hcme merchant knows this, and is already~
mapping out an extensive advertising cam paign to offset
the tremendous efforts of mail order houses and large
city merchants. He will get his, for advertising will
bring it to him.
The local merchant who forgets to advertise, who ex
pects to increase h is business without a proportionate
increase in legitimate publicity exp~ense, may dliscover to
his cost that he is dlecreasing it instead.
The public takes every man's number.
