A severe rain storm, accompanied by
some hail , visited a small teritory north
of town last Friday evening. We have

as bad as some report, however. The

fered severely in some places. The

wide, and did not extend very far east .

A paper to be first-class must receive
first-class support. First-class support
consists in every subscriber paying his
subscription in advance, patronizing
the job department, instead of sending
the work to foreign offices, and in every
way giving the paper your moral help.
Taking and reading it and not paying
for it will never do . Moral support of
itself was never known to run a news
paper; moral support cannot be util
ized when ink and paper bills are to be
paid. The men who work on newspa
pers are human, and enjoy corned beef
and cabbage as well as anybody. The
atmosphere in this locality contains a
large amount of ozone and is very brac
ing, the scenery very grand and pict
uresque, but nevertheless ii seems to be
one of Nature's first laws that one can
not pay for printing material with
ozone or pay workmen on beautiful
scenery .

It is good judgmtnt in you to place

I pay no rents. My expenses all told
are a mere trifle. My goods are
bought for cash and I llatter myself
that 1 can sell cheaper than any mer
