Those of our farmers who
have been compelled to buy
corn and oates, and we re
gret to state that the number
is large, will have to ec mo
mize in order to settle with
their merchants next fall.
The Bulletin has furnish

amount of reading
for some time past, but this
week we devote considerable
of our space to advertising-,
we hope the diversion will be
as satisfactory and acceptable
to our readers as it is to us.
It is among the possibili
ties, we might say probabili
ties, that at no distant day
Bolivar will be lighted by
electricity. Severrl ol our
enterprising citizens have
become interested in the mat
ter and agree to put in a
plant, provided a certain
number of lights are contract
ed for. The required num
ber has not yet been reached,
a thorough canvass not hav
ing been made, but the .pro
moters feel greatly encourag
ed over the outlook. The
enterprise deserves the hearty
support of all who have the
interest of the town at heart.
Few places of Bolivar's size
are without electric lights.
There are man" points in fa
vor of electric lights that
could be urged, but it is only
necessary to state that it is
the most satisfactory and
cheapest of all.

To the Editor of tiik Bulletin:
As "a stranger in a strange land"
I am greatly surprised to learn that
mere nas been considerable ueiay in
the matter of introducing electric
lighting into a community of such
enlightened citizenship. A matter
that so directly affects the material
growth and prosperity of a town as
electric lighting should need no
urging upon the people and they
should lend every possible effort to
securing this great iudicator of com
fort and advanced civilization.
Aside from the fact that Bolivar
can dc thoroughly and brilliantly
lighted with electricity for the mou
ey that is annually paid to the Stan
dard Oil Trust we have the follow
ing additional inducements:
1. Better and more cleanly, and
consequently more healthful light
ing. 2. Street lighting that improves
the town and makes it safer from
depredations of midnight thieves
3. Reduced insurance and less
liability of conflagrations.
4. Modern appearance that at
once impresses strangers and visi
tors with the fact that the town is
progressive and up to date.
5. Investment of capital and the
establishment of another home en
terprise. All of these things help to build
ud a town and push it forward. The
place that clings to the ancient Ker
osene lamp and the antiquated "tal
low dip" is laughed to scorn by peo
ple who are looking for live com
munities in which to invest their
money or make their home.
Bolivar is standing in her own
light every minute she delays in
getting good lights. She should
have them, and as quickly as possi
ble. The live,, wide-awake citizens
should put their shoulder to the
wheel and push with a will.
