For a generation or so people
thought they couldn't do business
and be courteous at one and the
same time. Then came a decided
reaction- and it was discovered that

motto and its followers. Dosks from
Maine to California and from Michigan
to Florida were covored with
those ideas, until the country seemed
to bo actually drippiug mercantile
"Do it that is doit well.
For it stilt holds good that what we
do in haste we soiuetimos have to do

woll in the begiuning, even if it is
not done "now," saves doing it
twice once in a hurry, the second
time in the way it should be done.
Suppose you add to your mottoes,
thon, "Do it Right."
Letter From M. E. Pggue.
Fredonia, Ky , June 15th, 1905.
Friend Marshall- Since the appearance
of the article in yonr paper
last week taking issue with Judge
Blackburn in regard to the soldiers
being on duty in your city, I for
some reason have been regarded by
many as the author of the same, and
been congratulated for the stand I
look in the matter, I do not know
why I should be suspicioned of doing
a thing which at this time might be
considered by some as treasonable
utterances, unless that it be that 1
have heretofore worried your readers
with some of my scribbling.

real author knows, and I woutd be
far from plucking the laurel that
should adorn the brow of another,
the author of that article
However, I shall say something
along with this disclaimer that you
may know my views on tho
conditions that oxist iu our
state and county.
As to the soldiors not being needed
at any place in our countv I feel
that there is an agreement that i

And it is a pity that they did not

our county the pitiable plight of be
ing heralded over the nation by a
subsidized press as a county full of
lawbreakers, and every time they
visit our be,lovel county seat which
they have builded every brick,

out I do think that they are acting
under a misunderstanding of the situation
basod perhaps upon information
only calulatod to deceive. And
the real harm done already to our
county seat from a business standpoint,
and the bitterness engenaored
by the presence of militia who are
daily becoming more obnoxious to
our people will take many years to
obliterate. It is also deplorable that
a breach has opened by the same
cause between the people of Ihe
town and country, which at one
time was well nigh impassable, but
the conditions are now better, and
we should cultivate it to the extent
that we could co-operate with our
friends every where regardless of
where they live. Because, I feel
that the present condition of aSairs
are thrust upon us all alike.
We have a condition that is' hard
to people being protected
against an imaginary enemy,
and that against their own will, and
we of this section of old Crittenden
do not feel that tke text "The wicked
flee when no man pursueth" applies
to us, because we are not running,
even if we are bad.
