Just Some Hot Air,
Some of I ho local papers that have
dropped thn ''patent inside" of their
publication for no other reason on earth
than that it costs In the neighborhood
of $5.00 or $0.00 per week whereas the
paper can be Issued without It for some
thing llko $2.60 per week, aro making
a great fuss about cutting out the
"patents" and how much better their
paper is and how deeply it is appreci
ated by the "dear people." Anybody
with a thimble full of brains knows
that it don't make one iota of differ
enco lu the value or quality of a news
paper wheu formerly it printed four
pages ntpome and furnished four pages
patent, If, it cuts out the miscellaneous
matter nnd still only furnished four
pages homo print. Not one line more
of home news and no foreign news at
all. Surely he must be a great philan
thropist who would lavish such good
ness upon his valued subscribers. Hats 1
If they really want to do something
worth commendation, let them cut out
the patent and fill that spaco with good
home news If they can find It or else
be honest enough to say they cut it
out to save expenso and not try to
throw bouquets at themselves.
The IIriiam) has been anticipating
fuunh a change itsulf but it was not be-
k cause we felt we would give our read-
iM'ers a bettor paper by doing so, unless
we cquld print tho whole eight pages
at home and that would not be juslifl
ablo at thiH time, but because we have
to find some place to cut down czpns
cs and we figured porhaps thos "pat
cnt" pages, while good matter, could
be dispensed with more easily than
nnything olso. Had w Jell justified
in printing all the eight pages at home
we'd havo made the change long ago
but wu really hated to cut off four
pages, even of miscellaneous matter.
It never occurred to us to cut It out and
go on printing tho same amount of
homo matter and then with a self-satisfied
air, pat ourself on th back and
gay what a wonderful concession we
xhad male our readers. Marvelous,
isn't it, how generous eomo publishers

In a communication of recent date
to D. P. Miller, J K. Patterson, of
Alva, one of tho promoters of the St, V.
O.it P. Ry., among other things says:
"Our railroad proposition is looking
line and we expect to be in Beaver
county as soon as tho roads will per
mit. It must bo rememborcd that the past
wlntor has been unparalelled in the his
tory of the enttrn country and it has
not only been impracticable but almost
impossablo to make much advance in
railroad building the past four months
but, the promoters of the road which
proposes to come to Reaver havo not
been idle by nny meant. They have
been busy, very busy, perfecting de
tails and now as soon as the weather
conditions will warrant, they will be
on the ground, witli all the minor de
tails taken care of, and will push tho
project all along the lino.
Had they attempted to do field work
auring these unprecedented snow
storms and blizzards they would only
hve boon at an enormom expense, and
accomplished little. They Will lose
nothing by the delay for when they
once begin everything wlllbo ready
and they can forge It through without
any disagreeable waitn and delays..
If the weather continues favorable
we may expect gome big developments
In our proposed line within the next
When tho roll is called at tho close
oi 1012 Reaver county will be at the
accounting with at least two new rail
roads completed across her ful' length,
east and west, and we may point with
pride to our achievements for a devel
opment and prosperity will be ours
which will cause th eyes of all the
surrounding country to look our way.

Mr. Hulick has also planted his yard
well to the samo kind of trees. H. D.
Peckham is also preparing to further
beautify his home property by plant
ing more trees, while the Hkkald edi

large trees set out around her homo
Perhaps others also planted trees or
