STOCK RUN AT LARGE
Sixty days from November 17 it
will be unlawful for stock to run at

;cant majority of 36 votes, the peo
ple of Columbia county have willed
that stock must bo kept in some in-
clcsure. Tho penalty for tho first
offense is $10, and $20 will l:e the '
flno for each subsequent offenso. In
the election returns the Mist gave
tho ma.'crity as two votes, but when
tho county clerk car.vassad the votes
ho found tho stock law had passed
by 36 majority. The difference in

made by several election hoard

keep your cattle tied up or in a
fenced pasture, else you will bo sub

Tho "hone dry" constitutional
amendment will not go into effect in

the importation of two quarts of

Brown said tho issuing of a proclam

Investigation of the advance In

started by tho government trade com
mission and a report will be rendered
?oon. The advance in news print
paper began early in 1916 end has,
continued to climb. The contract
price beforo tho beginning of the
raiso was about $2 per 100 pounds
at the factory, and now it Is hover
ing around tho $7 mark. The com
mission has found that tho average
cost of manufacture of news print
to bo less than $33 per ton, or $1.65
per cwt. Market pricas on somo of
tha materials used have been ad
vanced to quito nn extent, but not
so much so that the manufacturer
can demand $7 for what he formerly
sold for $2. The question applies
not only to the newspapers, but to
the whole public, since the cost of
wrapping paper, bags, paper nap
kins, etc., have gone up by leaps and
