The Building, Savings and Loan Association for the upbuild of Baxter is now about ready to complete its organization. A large membership has been se cured. The amount of shares taken by the enterprising and public-spirited citizens makes a very creditable showing for a town of this size. It has been the desire to organize with not less than one thousand shares taken. About eight hundred will be the amount of shares which will be in force from the start. It is a much to be regretted fact that some of our heaviest property owners have declined to assist in this enterprise, as well as others who will be among the first , to secure current benefits from the operations of this or ganization. Shares nave been taken by Galena parties as an in vestment. The committee has received word from others in Gal ena that they desire to subscribe for stock as an investment. The News will publish in next week's issue a complete list of the names of those who have subscribed for stock in this association, which is destined to be the most impor tant improvement and up-build move made by the people of Bax ter to date. The organization will be perfected not later than Friday night of this week if no unavoidable delays happen. Why run over town when you can get what you want at one place?

When the city of Galena, act ing through some of its leading citizens, stole a part of Baxter Rural Route No. 3 from Baxter Springs, it made representations to the postoffice department, through an inspector, that the service to the patrons would be greatly improved, and that more people would be benefited by the change. After several hitches the change was made. Tuesday morning the Galena poit office phoned to the Baxter postoffice to find out if there were any mail at Baxter for Galena, and the statement was made that if there were somebody would drive over in a car after it. The Galena postal officials say that they have had no mail since Sun day. The Galena postal service is an improvement, we don't think. And the people who are trying to get mail from Gilena out on the rural route formerly served out of the Baxter office are of the same opinion. vThe different rural routes out of Baxter Springs have been served without a break in the ser vice, thank you. But it did seem like the irony of fate that Galena should phone to Baxter Springs and ask for mail. . Walter C. Frisbie Leases, Mines and Mining Properties. Expert Examina tions Made.

We don't want to throw any cold water on the honest efforts of this pious poet, but we do wish he had directed his energies to the improvement of the home down here.
