By the time the next issue of
the MIEfSEN(ER reaches our read
ers, the year 1913 will have rush
ed in and the year 1912 will have
passed to history.
We have been sorely and seri
ously tried during the past few
years, by boll weevil, floods, insect
pests of various kiuds injuring
crops, and Iy unfavorable weath
er conditions, but this great couu
try of cuts, has been showered
most slundclatly with blessings by
the Devine Ruler of the Universe,
and notwithstanding our losses
and our disappointments, our peo
ple are unhlouuted and uncouquer
ed, and are preparing to recoup
during the. coming year, with more
courage, energy and determination
to make g,,,od the adversity of the
past, meet their delayed obliga
tions and have plenty to spare and
make themselves and those de
pende t upon them happy and
In a country so bountifully pro
vided with limitless resources as
ours is, we cannot be discouraged
by a little adversity, we must dou
ble our courage and energy and
determination to master the situa
tion, and that is all that is neces
sary to make the country blossom
into abundant paosperity and hap.
Let us forget our troubles and
trials of the past and look to our
future good, and it is our most
sincere wish to all, that when an
other year rolls by, our people
will be happy, and enjoying abun
During the coming year, we ex
pect to e , the completion of the,
Techs locke, this will give us easy
water communication, we expect
to have a good system of Cement
sidewalks, we expect to have one
or two elec'tric railroads passing
through our town and country, all
this, with large and abundant de
versified crops, we must be more
cheerful in looking at things com
ing during the next year.
We wish to call your attention to the
fact that most nlufectious diseases such
as whooping cough, diphtheria andt scar
let fever are contracted when the child
has a cold. Chamberlaiu's Cough item

diseases. This remedy is famous for its
cures of colds. It contains no opi;,ua or

Christmas day was a delightful
one here, the day previous was
fair and not too cold,and induced a
large number of persons to attend
the midnight mass which was
beautiful, brilliant and imposing.
The day was an ideal one and a
large number of people were on
the streets all the day, and had a
most happy and pleasant day.

to hang up before the fireplace on

intended to be worn by women on
a cold day.

President Taft has put up the
Civil Service bare in behalf of 20,
000 men employed in our navy
yards. These are all expert me
chanics, who have been tried and
found tit, and who, under the
eight-hour day now prevailing for
government work, have easy jobs.
When Dr. Wilson becomes presi
dent he can take these bars down,
nething but an executive order on
his part is required to do that.
President Taft's good faith in this
matter was proved when he placed
some 40,000 fourth-class post-mas
ters under Civil Service rule be
fore he knew whether he would
be re.-elected or not. Dr. Wilson
probably agrees with him so far
as abstract policy is concerned, but
the intellectual convictions of
scholarly statesmen are one thing
and the political exigencies of
practical administration are often
