I AM THE PRINTING PRESS.
(Written by Robert H. Davis for R.
Hoe & Co.)
I am the printing press, born of
the mother earth. My heart is of
steel, my limbs are of iron, and my
fingers are of brass.
I sing the songs of the world, the
orations of history, the symphonies
of all time.
I am the voice of today, the herald
of tomorrow. I weave into the warp
of the past the woof of the future.
I tell the stories of peace and war
I make the human heart beat with
passion or tenderness. I stir the
pulse of nations, and make brave
men do braver (eeds, and soldiers
I inspire the midnight toiler, weary
at his loom, to lift his head again
uind gaze, with fearlessness, into the
vast bey.onl1d, seeking the consolation
a hope eternal.

things return to the immutable dust.

NEWSPPAER WORTHY OF NAME.
A newspaper, any newspaper wor
thy of the name, is first of all, a pub
lie institution, although privately
owned and operated. More than any
purely public institution, maintained
by and for the public, a newl'spaper is
distinctly' for service if it fulfills its
prina ry purpose. Without worthily
serving the public it cannot survive
for long, and as is the measure of its
service so is its length of (lays and
its power for usefulness.
Primarily the newspaper is for the
dissemination, the retailing of news
and general information. It is the
pioneer and leader in every worthy
enterprise in the community in which
it aims to serve the public. It is the
friend and mouthpiece of those who
labor to achieve. It is their encour
ager and assistant in striving for the
attainment of the things desired, the
things whereby organized society ad
v'ances and achieves. It is ever ready
and~ wiling to give its aidl in the pro
motion, the upbuilding of anly ambi
tious, self-helping community, to give
publicity to what is being accomplish
edI in lines of ind~ustry and enter
prise, iln order that the wvorld may
know and1( appr'cialte endleavors for
I advanlcementt, (ledevors to stablish
firmly and1( permanently the things by
whtich humanlllkind is mlade more
hap~py, morel' prosplerous and tmore
secure inl thle enijoyment of life, lib
erty and protectionl under the lawv.
I al l these things, andl in many
more is thle newlspaper, as an institu
-tion, conlcernedl, and in association
withl those whlo wvork for wvorthy ac
compllishlmenlt is its chief delight and
recompense.-- ,Jacksonlville Times

There's a lot of satisfaction
-When you buy a ittle car,
You take your fiamily riding
And folks wonder wvho you are;
e iYou fe'el and1( look impor~tant
si An~d you'r wvorthl one hundred par,
-When you're going honky, honky
e dIown the road.
You lealve all your cares behind you
And1( are happy as can be,
And the country round about
Is miost beautiful to see.
. And the kid he says, now pa,
Aint we all way up in G.
.When you're going honky, honky
dowvn the road.
Li You think if there's a heaven
You are surely on the way;
5 You have delighted visions
And you want to go and stay,
.And your wife she says, 0 John,
,I love you better every day,
When you're going honky, honky
down the road.
If it happens you're a batchelor
On this first little ride,
You're always almost sure to have
Your sweetheart by your side,
And before returning home, you bet,
She'll be your promised bride,
t When you're going honky, honky
down the road.
