Our readers will pardon us if we
let a brother editor give his opinions
of a stingy man. We are glad there
are none such in our town, but all
other towns hare tbetn. Our brother
editor says that if Utere is anything
on earth that gtres him a longing for
eternal rest and deep damp soHtude
it is a man who comes to a town or
country, bvildn up a big paying busi
ness, grows rich and then squats down
on the gold like a hpn on a door knob
aud is too stingy even to let the grav
el grind in his own gixard. A real,
genuine 18-karat, stingy, selfish man
4'uit't be honwHt, and if he ever gets
to heaven and has wings, he folds
them up and walks for fear he will
ruffle a plume or lose a tail feather.
The kind of men who build up a town
hr.d county and enjoy life and make
the bent citizens, are the enterprising,
onergetic and liberal men, who believe
in living and letting others live; and
who do not. when they get a dolhir,
squeeze it till the goddess of liberty
feels like she had on a corset. Such
"-tTfCezing is what causes such hard

memories and incidents that cotre up,
the smiling faces and pleasant coun

that-has so often admitted you, swing

ditions in a community. When laws
are violated, when police are indiffer

Public sentiment in a town is back
of its laws, just as the army aud navy
is back of the international law. When

authorities that is not entirely. A
