That is an old story. It has been told many times and with xy liaa uee toia many iev times,, i(.. tha a Um ana wicn either refuse to or do not wish to be ivee it Suppose, just for the sake of sup posing, that the publishers of America agreed to withhold all news from the publications which a committehei of. churchmen thought improper? The freedom of the press would depart this life instantaneously, of course, but, for thteh sake of argument, we will as- tn S a g woul However, how long does the most op timistic among the newspaper critics think it would be before other news papers would appear which would dis play all the "horrible" details of these forbidden matters? The outcome would be that the present publishers, who, in the main, "play up" news of the "better" kind consistently and fair ly, would lose ground to the newcom ers who might not be nearly so con scientious. The churches would have little hope of gain in such a course of events. It may be true that the Carpentier Dempsey battle received an undue share of newspaper attention from the standpoint of its actual importance. But the public interest in it was tre mendous and the business of a news paper is to keep tab on the public pulse. If the newspaper readers, who comprise virtually all the population, have not yet reached a plane of thought that, in the opinion of men like the bishop, is the right plane of mmmm~~~~2-~^^ .J thought, that is unfortunate, but the newspapers could never drive them to that plane by withholding what they want to read. However, it is just possible that our critical friends are about as biased on the one side as the "lowbrows" are on the other. If the general public took a great, but temporary, interest in the Jersey City fight, and if the newspa pers printed a great deal about it, that will not send us to perdition. It was, after all, merely a psychological "day off" for the world and the world proceeded to enjoy it before getting back to the routine, serious things of life.Baltimoro American. London Shocked by Holdup. The latest American vogue to invade England is the holdup. Right in theof heart of London a delivery wagon was held up by masked bandits, armed with revolvers, and a large sum ofmours money was stolen. This sort of news is so usual in America that it excites merely pass ing interest, but in England, where the police are unarmed and where the licensing and sale of deadly weapons is so strict, it is an almost unheard of event.

Becoming a little stronger each year, it continued to aid and help in the upbuilding of the community and its institutions. In the year of 1907 the Farmers' Creamery of Milaca was organized with the help of this bank to the extent that the bank supplied 90 per cent of the working capital of said creamery, and for many years assisted it and furnished needed accommodations which resulted in the present enviable condition of this creamery, which paid its patrons and stock- holders in 1920 the huge sum $460,000. It next gave moral and money support to the organization to our present Breeders' association, from which have sprung the magnificent dairy herds in this part of Mille Lacs" county, both thoroughbred and grade, and which will ultimately result in making Mille Lacs county one of the best dairy counties in the State of Minnesota. In 1908 the bank became the First National Bank of Milaca, under which title it has built its enviable record of being one of the strngest banks in the county. Its aim has been to serve all the people to the best of its ability, and the generous support accorded this bank in the past bears witness that it has well succeeded. In going through the strenuous times of 1907 this bank was one of the few banks that never stopped payment of cash on demand. The finest fruits, grains and vege tables in the land will be shown at the MINNESOTA STATE FAIR September 3 to 10 This bank is the second oldest bank in Mille Lacs county, being organ- ized in 1899 under the name of Mille Lacs County bank. Milaca was then a saw mill town and the village and the farming com-9' munitl around it was in a primitive condition and banking, of necessity, was then a very small affair. During the late war and present crisis the bank has done all in its power under safe banking. MEMBER OF FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM. A. A. ALLEN, President. M. K. RUDD, Vice President. T. M.
