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

had have called upon local dealers
they could have procured the most

Home Development News
papers and community
No movement ever attained suc
cess without publicity and in the
nature of things any movement re'

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

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

The first evidence, therefore, of
a community's awakening is gen

paper, and the first act of those
initiating a movement for local de

But this fact must not be miscon

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
