Ellsaesser Sfe Henry. Smith county has been canvassed by a stock food grafter and the victims find that papers they signed as receipts for the goods were $10 to $20. They had' the understanding that collections would not be made until a trial had been made of the food,' but the notes were immediately sold to a bank and .were due June 1st The food was guaranteed to exter minate worms and according to the Lebanon Times, worked effec tively, killing six hogs for one farmer along with the worms nd taking all the hair off another bunch of swine. If these farmers had have called upon local dealers they could have procured the most reliable stock food for less money and saved themselves the humilia tion of being humbugged. Hill City Republican. The price on our 'town lot loans your way, and the terms are yours Ellsaesser & Henry. After-thoughts One way to acq.'ire trouble- marry it. Even the married woman's life may be Miss-spent. Nature waits until spring to turn over her new leaves. Poverty is the only luxury that the rich cannot afford. We all squander money on schemes that won't work. Is an air brake a necessary ad junct to a flying machine! The bonds of matrimony are not always gilt edge securities. Most of us can find fault with out the aid of a search-warrant. The average mann doesn't add much dignity to the office he fills. Many a man's income depends upon the generosity of his friends. Wit may make a good sauce, but it's too rich for a steady diet. Bringyour butter, eggs, poultry and hides to us and get the cash for them. Liberal Cold Storage Co. 8-5-tf Rural Route No. 4.

Home Development News papers and community Development No movement ever attained suc cess without publicity and in the nature of things any movement re' quiring for its success the support of numerous persons must have the . invaluable aid of common mouthpiece. The kind of publicity needed in this development is af forded by the local paper at every stage of its progress. The local ii i.iii. i eauor snouia oe ana usually is conversant with the community's needs; he is wholly in sympathy with and is an enthusiastic sup porter of every undertaking that is calculated to make his town big ger, better and more enterprising. The first evidence, therefore, of a community's awakening is gen erally to be found in its local news paper, and the first act of those initiating a movement for local de velopment is to enlist the services of and work band in hand with that paper. But this fact must not be miscon strued. The newspaper is a busi ness institution, the same as is t drygoods or a grocery store. It must give a financial return for the money invested in it and for labor expended upon it. The greater part of the exploitation perform ed by a newspaper is more directly for the benefit of something or somebody else than for the pub- isher himself. But paper, ink, type, and everything necessary to produce a newspaper costs money; and for financial support the news paper publisher must look to those who derive benefit from the publi city it affords. The benefits arising from the publishing of a newspaper are not imited to subscribers and adver tisers. The paper is a constant worker in every movement that tends to improve conditions in the community. Its subscribers and its advertisers makes its existence possible, but they usually a small part of the community of which it is a benefactor. The indirect benefits derived from subscribing to the local paper and from using it for advertising purposes are double and triple the A Pleased Customer Is The Best Advertisement Thia thought is back of every statement or promise we make.

It is through the newspaper that the community speaks on all occasions on which the community desires to be and if its best interests are to be served must be beard. But the community must not as a com munity forget that the publisher of the paper is at his own expense exploiting the community and benefiting each member of it as much as perhaps more than himself. The first aid, the best aid in any "Keep the Money at Home" cam paign is me newspapers, it is through its columns that are made known the advantages possessed by the community and it is tho one factor in local development that can not profitably or safely be omitted or disregarded.
