THE WILLIAMS NEWS WHY CHANGE IT? Facific Printer and Publisher consid ers the term "country newspaper" uncomplimentary and asks sugges tions for a better term for "Country Press', which it thinks should go into the discard. It says: "The term itself is mis leading: and gives a wrong impression. It belittles the institution it is sup posed to describe. It is a term of another day and age." Following' reply to this has beer, written by Harry Hammond, Jr., junior of the University of California, forestalling any attempt to change the name, and lifting it to a higher plane : "I do not agree tha- the' term savors of the day when the publisher took potatoes and other garden truck in payment of subscriptions. " 'County weekly" does not cause in ine a reaction, other than of satis faction. It entails all that is loyal, truthful, and non-prejudicial. "Instead of belittling and giving the wrong impression, it connotes and exemplifies very impressively that lack of yellow journalism which is so e-'ident and predominant inHhe daily. "Discard it? Never. .Let as ia;her uplift it ar.d treasure it as something which is not an end in it self,' but a means to an end. Let us when we see 'country weekly' on any paper, hot think of the past, but what it truly represents. "Let us realize that there is some thing we ' may cling to, something stable, honorable, truthful ; something that leads to the creation of the ideal in journalism and not to Bacon's Idols of the Cave' ".

With some $500,000,000 going up in smoke annually, great good can be accomplished by a systematic ef fort of this character to impress up on the -public the necessity of using every precaution and energy to pre vent fires. ' General conditions in the state continued to improve during Novcm ber, practically all lines reporting increases over October,' which was considered one of the best months of the year. ' There was no developements in ag- ricultnre worth mentioning. Hay prices made further advances, and both short and long staple cotton held their own as compared with the prev ious month. Sheep men had a successful season, with prospects good for another. Bains and snows have been encour aging to cattlemen, and ranges gen erally are in good shape.

TX7HERE there are children the v V Christmas stocking should never be forgotten. Nothing can take the place of it, for nothing else arouses quite so much speculation and pleas urable anticipation as what Santa Claus will put into that homely ar ticle.

If all his gifts are given immediately on waking, excitement will run high. and dressing and breakfast will be SOUS, thrnn vr'h rrpnt difficulty.
