Wo wonder why, the Butler
papers stopped the Frank Deer
wester bowl so suddenly? Per
haps they learned another ver
sion of the story.
An attempt was mads to assas

President of France, during a
patriotic celebration Sunday.
Two shot were fired at close
range but no one wa wounded.
Jesse K. Grant, son of the
late Pres. U. S. Grant, would like
the nomination for the presiden
cy on the Democratic platform.
Well, why not accomodate him.
He can have some pleasure in
pursuit if not possession.
'Hie Washington Post says:
Why all this bother about "What
is a Democrat?" What differ
ence does it make? Years ago,
when the Democrats amounted
to something in politics, the
question might have been perti
nent. The Loving trial of Vircinla
should teach a moral lesson to
girls, who are giddy and like to
taste of forbidden fruit. A mere
taste of liquor, even though the
first offense, often leads to tragic
ends as in this case, where the
girl was disgraced and the per
petrator murdered. There is
only one thing to do under such
circumstances and it is to "let it
Tho Western F.ntcrpHsof lust
week was profuse in U praise
of "Johnny" Rockefeller, the
Standard Oil king and billionaire.
It took the stand that ho was un
jufiUy abused because of acquir
ing wealth through ingenuity,
honesty, etc. Hot! Such me
thods have no more honesty
about them than plain stealing.
It is merely his greed for wealth
which causes him to choke the
small producer and raise the
nrico of oil. It is that which
caused him to become ambitious
for the honor of being the rich
est man. ven though in so doing,
he would bring poverty on all
sides. As for honesty, no man
can become so enormously weal
thy in ordinary lines of business
save by uuscrupulous methods.
We do not hold that rich men
should be condemned all the time
but they should have no more
consideration in the sight of the
law than some poor man who
isn't worth SO cents. But
'Johnnie" will no doubt be pleas
ed to learn of the Enterprise's
praises, and will probably send

"Bob, where's the state of
Matrimony?" It is one of the
United States, it is bounded by
kissing and hugging on one side
and cradles and babies on the
others. Its chief products are
population, broom sticks and
staying out at night. It was dis
covered by Adam and Eve while
trying to discover a northwest
passage out of paradise. The
climate is sultry until yon pass
the tropics of housekeeping,
when squally weather commonly
sets in with such power as to
keep all hands as cool as cucum
bers. For the principle roads
leading to thi3 interesting state,

Taka Thu Home With You.
Did you ever pick up a homo
paper that jou did not hear
words of prait for tho horn
town and tho thought expressed
that, it was Tin: town in the state?
Yet every day, newspapers are
going under, duo to lack of pat
ronage-aud the homo merchants
generally look on it aa a matter
of course. Tfie influence of a
paper is not always apparent
although it is the life of business,
either in a small town or a city.
Tho trusts control the price of
goods handled by the retailer
and prices are regulated accord
ingly. Tho trusts bring up the
price of paper but the issue ap
pears every week for the same
eld price, $1.00 per, and nothing
is said. In booming a town, do
not overlook these truths or go
elsewhere to see who needs the
patronage. It's up to you.
