WAITING FOR THE DAILY PAPER.
Tho best Social Servico thnt could bo done by tho peoplo is to
eliminate tho services of the noboy in tho small town. Take your
daily paper by mail.
Only thoso who have worked with tho little fellpw day after day
can realize what a hardship it is for him to deliver the papers and
meet the ups and downs tlmtcome with the business. It is too much
for a boy. It deprives him of his cveninps at homo and his hours ut
Sunday School nnd church. His mind is diverted trom his studies ut.
fcchool and taking it, all in all. it is not tho job that benefits a boy.
The idle minutes he spends in waiting for the trains could be far bet
ter ppent in wholesome play or in a better atmo.-phere than that which
hovers over men who aro just killing time. '

ing in tho business. In nino enscs out of ten the boy who delivers the
paper in a small town, is tho boy of a good home, of dependable par
ents, who think they are doing tho right thing by letting him make
his "own money." It is right for a boy to have his "own monoy,"
but first let him keep his own soul, and that is something easily lost
when it is not carefully shielded by day and by night.
The newsboy must go in all kinds of weather, but the winds that
smack his face docs not sting like the jolts ho gets in tho business.
His faith in humanit' is often shaken before he can understand tho
misunderstandings of business, therefore his mind and hand and heart
aro paralyzed beforo bo has tho years and equipment efficient for the
business of life:
When wo got the dollar and self out of a question then wo aro
able to answer it, and that is how we aro potent to answer tho ques
tion, ""Why not let tho newsboy alone?" It is only a matter of a
few hours of waiting to the subscriber and a diirerencc of a penny
and a great relief to tho newsboy for you to take tho daily paper by
mail. Do it. At first, the boy will not understand the chance, but
some good da', you can face him with a clear conscience and say, "1
helped that boy by a few hours of self-denial, helped him when he
thought I was hurting him. God bless the newsboy. Our heart and
thoughts go out to him." May tho gift of kind foresight come to each
of us to be his keeper and direct and encourage him into "The Street
that is Called Straight."
NO PIE SUPPERS IN DANVILLE.
Tho management of tho Danville opera house, always on tho
lookout to do a good turn, has agreed to donato tho entire receipts
on February 13th to tho fund of furnishing tho now Christian church.
Itememhor tho d ito, and attend., Danville Messenger.
Church members nro often on the lookout for nn opora house,
but it is a new thing to hear of an opera houso looking out for a
church. Sign tho Christian stewardship pledge and keep it, is tho
best way to furnish tho church
Dr. Anna Howard Shaw's address on Woman's Suffrage in Louis
villo Sunday created a deal of enthusiasm, and many wore converted
to tho causo. Sho wants women policemen in Now York. Wo couldn't
get one in Clovcrport to take Town Marshal Scott's place. Dr. Shaw
declares that woman's rights will make better homemaking. If this
is true, let tho women vote, for wo need bettor homes that will keep
women in them to mako bettor working men. Tho number of women

Tho taxpayers of this' town want to know thoy want to be
shown what disposition is made of the money paid in for taxes.
Thoy arc entitled to a detailed statement; in fact the law says the
City Clerk shall make such a statement and same shall he published.
Every man ought to havo an ollico or a shop of his mn if he
hasn't a job that takes him to a pfhee down town. This would savo
thoso who aro busy from being interrupted by tho men that havo
nothing to do and no place to go.
Mr. Frank Carter says a man who is co-tented can Jive in a hol
low loar. So many men think that contentment is in tho house in
stead of tho man.
DINING AT THE SEELBACII.
The' (man vho tells, another man that "his price is too high,"
rarely ever talks the matter over, but simply draws tho conclusion
that tho man who is telling the article hhs his price too high. The
would-bo customer who does this rarely over knows what it costs the
merchant, or tho printer, or the coal man, to run a business. It is
impossible for him to tell the printer how to reduce tho cost of print
ing a job, yet he wants it cheaper. The prices for sugar and cott'eo
and all the fancy groceiies aro too high, but ho can not tell tho gro
cery man where he can get them cheaper. In short, the grocery man
is not a brick-layer, and a brick-layer knows nothing at all about the
No,piices nic not too high. We live too high. "Wo want too
much. "We all would rather dine at the Seclbach than at a cheap
restaurant. Of com so, the fust place we get service. Both places
can cook' hum and eggs, hut there is a difference. Each charges what
its own service costs.
It is tho simie way with printing, with advertising, with food and
clothing. Wo aro spoilt and not willing to pay tho price for tho
service .and material we want. We want tho best articles for tho
price of the cheap articles.
Beforo saying, "Your prite is too high" to tho morchant or
printer, who has served you year in and year out, think tho matter
over, go into his shop and see if you could do better.
Dininur ac the best hotels and patronizing the high class printers,
givo you the best and piomptcst sci vice. They aro tho only ones
thoroughly equipped to serve you.
