T1here are events occuring in .-very
community which, if reported in ai locual
paper, would create a commrrotion little
dreamed of. What to report and what
not to report of ten perplexes the editor.
He is often accused of cowairdice( and
favoritism, when all the time he is look
ing toward the good reputation of the
town where his lot is cast. T1he local
editor fr-om necessity al imost constan tly
finds himself between two fires, which
ever way he turns he is sure to be un..
justly treated. TIhis is one of the pleas
ures of the newspaper business.
Protect your own town) and thereby
show that you are in favor of protection.
If protection is good for the nation it is
good for the town. As townspeople we
should favor our town above every other
as the growth and develowment of it is
what will enhance the value of all prop
erty both in and about it. Then buy
your drygoods, groceries, hardware, fur
niture, drugs, etc., at home; have prmnt
ing, your blacksmithing, your shoe
repairing done at home; patronize home
in every instance that you can. The
success of our merchants and mechanics
means new business houses and resi
dlences, additional demands for labor of
various kinps. Tlo the farmer a first
class town affords a better market for
his grain, a b'etter trading point, and
such a town i& boundl to increase the
value of his land. - Unquestionably "'in
union there is strength.' Let us protect
-- All the money you lend Uncle Sam
when you buy W. S. S. is spent on
things for our soldiers.
