With all that is said in the world
against corporations, it is a fact tfiat it
is the saving principle of society, law
and existence! Those who have labor
to sell and those who have money to
sell. All men or women either sell the
labor of their hands or brain, or their
money for a price called interest. They
either sell their digging, writing, house
keeping, teaching; preaching, machin
ery, etc., for money, or their money for
labor and dividends. Capital without
labor comes to a stop, and labor without
capital starves. In order therefore, to
get the best results from both labor and
capital they must harmonize, must co
operate. Co-operation, therefore, is the
foundation of all business and all life.

An exchange in an article on the differ

in the following language: "This is a
sort of topsy turvy world. No man
seems to be satisfied. One man is striv
ing to get justice and another is Ueeing
from it. One man is saving up to build
a house and another is trying to sell his
dwelling for less than it cost, to get rid
of it. One man is spending all the mon
ey he can make in taking a girl to the
theatre, and sending her flowers in hope
eventually to make her his wife, while
his neighbor is spending all the gold he
has to get a divorce. One man makes
no effort to keep out oft he way of con
tageous diseases, and being exposed es
capes them all, while his neighbor walks
ten blocks out of the way to avoid the
measels, and is sure to catch them or
them him and the next year has the
mumps and the next the grip. The
man who escapes all the diseases that
flesh is heir to, gets killed in a railroad
smash-up; another goes through a half
dozen without a scratch, and dies of the
It is always best to be cheerful and
good natured. No man can accomplish
great things in this life while he is sour,
morose and discontented. Alight and
merry heart makes one plucky, energetic
and industrious. Every man can do
his best when he is cheerful and deter

in hot water with the ill will of Iiis

the happiness of most all ritrhtiy i-t in

sider himself a back number and out of

sition that he feels he needs work no
longer. Such a man is virtually a dead
man. though he may lie a millionaire.
There is no way for a man to be happy
in America who is a mere drone in this
great hive of busy workers. This busy
generation will walk right over the man
who ceases to lie active in business, and
all the merry whirl of activity.

Suit, the barber, was stolen about U:30,
Tuesday evening. Mr. Suit left his bi
cycle outside of Moshier's store, on La
Porte Street. It was a smalley wheel,
No. -22050. It would seem that bicycle
stealing is becoming more common,
hardly a week passes that the po
lice of this and other cities do not re
ceive notification of some missing
wheel in this part of the state. This is
the first theft of the kind in Plymouth,
and bicyclists would do well to take
the precaution of securely locking their

A large amount of cord wood is be
ing brought to town daily. Farme rs have
long since demonstrated that they can
make money by selling wood that they
formerly would have used to build
fences, and erecting wire fences instead.
Many of them now are using a plain
fence of nine or ten wires in preference
to barbed wire. A plain wire fence is
durable and lasting; costs less than
barbed wire and when of sufficient
height will turn stock just as well, and
with the bottom wires close together
makes a good fence for sheep and hogs.
The many accidents to stock from the
use of barbed wire commends a plain
wire fence from a humane stand point.
Last Saturday forenoon a fire started

ing off a few shingles a few buckets of
water was sufficent to extinguish the
blaze. It was lucky the lire did not
gain greater headway, and although
there proved to be no great amount of
work for the members of the fire de
partment, the prompt ami ellicient man
ner in which they turned out ami the
business-like manner in which they got
to work, is worthy of praise and rellects
great credit upon" the fire department as
a local organization. Citizens of Ply

themselves upon such ellicient lire protection.
