U wish e.eli and everyone a .bright
and glorious New Year. It had been
o,wl intention to make the New Year's
issue of the Times an interesting pa
per, but as our force enjoyed Christ
mas a few days longer then we ex
pected, it prevented ns from doing it.
Bnt next week we expect to present
onr readers with a paper that all will
appreciate, and the only New Year's
resolution we have made is that from
next week, on the Times shall be the
newsiest newspaper in the city.
. s 1903.
What will the harvest be for 1903,
it a qaetsion that the entire world is
asking iUelf. The world has jnst
passed seven years of plenty and it is
redfated that beginning with the
present year the opposite will be ex
perienced for the coming seven years.
This theory may prove trne, but Ve
are nnabU fensee, as far a our retro
, apect extends over the past, or as far
as we can peer ir? irffS future, any
thing to Warrant such a prediction.
. Today there is enough grain and food
y staff in the country to feed the peo
ple for twelve months, if the crop of
1908 should prove a failure the
world over. Money is plentiful and
cheap. The inventive genius of man
is solving the great problems of mo
tive power, light and fuel. New dis
coveries in medical science will bo
given to the world which will insure
health,, longer life and happiness.
