it has been nursing it for some time,
and wants to get rid of 't before Thanks?
Every once in a whil? BOOM one says,
as we i -appose they s*y to every local
paper in the cour.1 ry : "Wl y don't you
" give it to the mail ord- r houses? They
are taking all the money out of the
country. Why. our i.osm.asters and
express agents say tbe amount they
send away to catalogue houses is simply
All right! Let's give it to the mail
order houses, and a; a c ncrete example
let us take the one backed by the Ni
It may be news to eorr.-:. but it is a
fact, that for one mail or?er house the
Government performs the following
service absolutely free:
Advertises, solicits, delivers the goods,
collects the money, takes care of the
fee for return of the money, pays the
transportation charges on the goods
from factory to consumer.
Is there a store ir. the town that could
meet this competition? Hardly! And
yet some of our storek?*rpt r> encourage
the Government in continuing to fur?
nish this service free to a gigantic mo?
We refer, of course, to the printed
envelopes furnished by an Ohio con?
tractor, to whom the Government fur?
nishes all the before mentioned service
Something over a year ago. when
Congress was about to abolish this
monopoly, petitions wer9 circulated in
every city, town and hamlet to allow
the monopoly to continue How many
of the merchants, opposed to the maii
order business, signed it? Honest, now,
di in't you, Mr. Merchart?
Why should not, the Government go
farther? If a woman wants a silk dress
pattern, why should not the postmaster
take her order, send to some other city
for it, deliver it, collect the money, and
remit to the maker in the distant city?
Or, why. if you want a box of oranges,
should he not send your order to Florida
or California, as you prefer, and have
the Government pay the exp-ess charges
to your home town?
That is the competitio-i that is put up
to the publishers, and yet they are ex?
pected to give their tin?*, end space in
their papprs, to boom thiir home towns
and encourage buying at horn ?.
Take this town. There are few who
realize that the printirg ir.iiustry fur?
nishes employment to more men than
any other industry in the town, and the
publishers are constantly at work for
the upbuilding of both our town and
county, and yet some of the biggest
orders for printing are going away from
As to the advertising done by our lo?
cal merchants?but thati-i another story
and more will be said about it later.
Now, Mr. Merchant and Mr. Man, in?
terested in the upbuilding of our little
city, before you again approach the
newspapers and ask them to "bit the
mail order houses," ask yourself if you
are doing what you should in the way
of doing your own buy ihr at home. If
you are doing your share to support the
papers you ask to contribute so gener?
ously to the upbuilding of your home
town ; and if you cannot answer in the
affirmative, then shake yourself to?
gether and begin now.
Just imagine a town and surrounding
community of our population, without a
paper, and ask yourself if the ones you
have are not worthy of better support
than they have been given.
THE FIRST RESULT.
The first tangible result of Wilson's
m* ?victory was an immense demonstration
If held in Manila, P. I., celebrating his
election to the presidency. Ten thous?
and Filipinos paraded the streets and
twenty thoanjand gathered at the sea
boulevard. Luneta. Those participat?
ing in the parade carried banners with
the words: "Immediate Independence,"
and all of the speeches bore on the sub?
ject. Emelio Auginaldo, the former
insurgent leader, made hie first public
appearance since the insurrection.
Many a brave soldier boy servirg his
country in the Philippines will be hu?
miliated by the little brewn men in their
zeal to celebrate the fact that they
think the "little Americars" have won
a victory. The real Americans must
get together snd not let the personal
ambitions of lead- rs divide them.
"The facts all seem to prove
what many people have forgotten,
that the great republican quarrel of
1912 was neither moral nor econom?
ic nor religious, but wholly person?
al. One wing refused Mr. Taf?'s
leadership. The other wing re?
jected Mr. Rocsevelt's leadership
There is hardly another question on
which they cannot come into sub?
stantial agreement, just as they
have in the past. "?New York
Sure! The only difference this year
was the personal ambition of would-be
leaders. There is no reason why the
great rank and file of the party cannot
now again get together on the questions
that have made the party great, suci?
as: Protection, preservation of Ameri?
can institutions, preservation of al.
American territory and preventing th-.
pulling down of the American flag wher
ever it has been raised. Progress?the
republican party being the true party of
progress since its inception, and needs
no qualifying adjective to show thie
fact. In fact, as the World says, there
is no vital question between the two
wings of republicans, and all the rank
and file need to do is to get together
and get rid of the leaders, who do not
get in line for the true principles of th?

The President's Thanksgiving procla?
mation breathes the spirit of thankful?
ness. There is no cause to question the
sincerity of his feelings in sending forth
such a document at this time. Disap?
pointed he may be in the outcome of
the recent election, but that does not
and should not affect the gratitude he
feels, in common with all his country?
men, for the manifold blessings this na?
tion has received during the year. He
is a poor kind of citizen that lets a po?
litical defeat sour his temper.
It is only a question of time when the
business man who makes yearly inroads
upon his capital comes to grief. Usually
the man who acts so unwisely is he who
in a spirit of false economy refuses to
advertise or does it so slightly that
scarcely anyone knows what he keeps
upon his shelves. The man of true busi?
ness instinct knows full well that liberal
and attractive advertising pays in every
way. Such expenditure, judging from
results, is true economy, and he who
practices it adds to his capital instead
of iiving upon it year after year.
The idea of planting trees by the
roadside ought to become popular.
There is everything in its favor. Our
forests have been entirely destroyed in
many sections and in others it is but a
question of a short time at ne rate the
timber is being cut dov/r. For that
reason it i3 the part of wisdom to re?
plenish the supply in every conceivable
way. Then, too, rows of trees by the
roadside afford welcome shade and j
shelter, besides protecting the roads in >
the stormy winter time. In the prairie I
section of the country the plan should

The present form of ballot for con?
stitutional amendments in Virginia is
altogether inadequate. In fact, our
system of submitting proposed changes
ir. the organic law to the el.ctorate is
insufficient, because there is no correct
and complete method by whi.-h the peo?
ple can be informed as to what they are
voting upon and what are the argu?
ments on both sides of the ??sue to be
decided. Thousands of voters yester?
day doubtless balloted upon the consti?
tutional amendments with the scuntest
possible knowledge of what effect the
changes would have if passed; many
others refrained from voting altogeth?
er because they lacked any informa?
tion as to the amendments. If the vo?
ters had been adequately informed, the
ret-ult would have been more intelli?
gently reached. So vital a matter as a
change in the supreme law of the state
ought not to be wrought in confusion,
misinterpretation, m i s u nderstanding
and ignorance. * * * In the election
yesterday there were thousands of vo?
ters who were totally uninformed of
the i.-sues for their decision and the ar?
guments for and against their action."

early Church the miuisa-rs were the
servants of the flock. They were of
the people, chosen by them by the
stretching forth of the hand.
Many of the reformers coveted the
titles accorded the Cnrthollc clergy.
They did not enre to tell the congre?
