ext Sunday is
Easter comes a little late this year-
right at the time when most men
buy their Spring clothes anyway.
It will seem as if every man you meet,
Easter Sunday is wearing a new suit.
Why not have yours.?
If you are willing to pay a medium price, we suggest
. Hi
"The same price the world over.
There is a great conception behind them. One of the oldest and largest
makers saw the possibilities of great savings by turning the chief aim of
his organization upon a suit of one sustained quality at one known price.
Carefully selected all-wool fabrics for $17 '
Style imparted by a great designer for $17
Workmanship including hand tailoring for $17
Guaranteed wear and satisfaction for $17
Once you see our great variety of new styles and fabrics you will feel
that we have done your thinking for you. You can't go wrong we have
a mirror. So what's the use of waiting nil after Easter? Come in now.
Special styles for young men. Less lively styles if you refuse to admit
yourself, young.

A Subject For Thought.
"The population of the cities has always been replenished from
the rural communities. The strongest men and women leave the
country for the city, with the result that the country has only its
weaker individuals to rear the next generation of people. Unfor
tunately the strongest men and women who come to the city are
not able to give to the next generation as strong individuals as
they are themselves."
The above statement was recently made by William Wirt, su
perintendent of the public schools of Gary, Ind. Is it true ? If so
it bodes ill for this country, because it means that we can not con
tinually drain the country of its strongest men and women and have
them produce weaker sons and daughters without inevitably becom
ing a nation of weaklings.
We, however, take issue with Prof. Wirt, although we are well
aware that many, if not most people will agree with him, and our
sole reason for disagreeing with him is not because we have re
mained in the country.
It has been our privilege to know intimately and well many
prominent influential and successful business men, professional,
mercantile and manufacturers in the cities. We have lived practi
cally our entire life in Hillsboro and have come in contact daily with
the business and professional men of the town and the farmers of
the surrounding country. When we have compared the people of
the country and the people of the cities, it has not shown that all
the brains, energy and ambition had gone to the cities. On an
average we believe that the boy who remains on the farm or in the
small town has just as much brains, ability, education and refine
ment as his brother or neighbor who goes to the city and generally
has shown it by staying at home.
While we admit that greater opportunities are open in the cities
to men who are looking mainly for financial success the amassing
of a great fortune, the opportunities for making a good living, lay
ing aside a competency for ofd age and withal having time for study
and pleasure are greater in the country and small town than in the
city. There you almost never see abject poverty and want, while
it is all around you in the cities.
The many young men from the country who make complete
failures of their lives in the cities, the many who by constant
struggle manage to eke out a bare existence and the few' who
attain great success shows that many of the weak as well as some
of the strong go from the country to the city. That some of the
strong men and women remain in the country is proved by the fact
that most of them have good comfortable homes and have been
successful in their chosen work and some few have amassed great
fortunes and attained great fame.
If, however, Prof. Wirt is right it is time that some of the
stong men and women remained in the country for they will be
needed there and his statement is one which we should all give
careful thought.

A handsome stone walHs being built
around the birthplace farm of Jellerson
Davis in Christian County, Kentucky,
Rhoderick L. Watts, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Thomas W. Watts, was born
August 5, 1833 and died at his home in
I Marshall, Ohio, March 14, 1914. He
was one oi quite a large iamny oi
children, many of whom established
homes of their own In this vicinity,
homes known for their Christian Influ
ence and surroundings, and their real
spirit of hospitality. But two of the
members of that family are now left,
R. R Watts, of Marshall, and Judge
T. M. Watts, of Hillsboro.
His father, Thomas W. Watts was
one of the typical ' school masters" of
I the early day, and many persons in the
! country owed a largo part of the lim
ited education which that day afforded
to this pioneer educator. His son
Rhoderick followed in his footsteps,
and for a period of about twenty years,
taught in the common schools The
writer who was one of his pupils many
jears ago, remembers him as a man
who was sympathetic, kindly of heart,
conscientious and hard working in the
school room, one who not only did his
I best in the way of instruction In books
but who realized that the opportunity
lies with the true teaeher to educate
and Instruct in those thlncrs which
make for real manhood and woman
hood and who, by precept and examples
instilled the lessons of aioral worth
which form the foundation for good
citizenship. Hi J attitude toward his
pupils was that of instructor, coun
sellor and triend.
Mr. Watts was a soldier in the War
of the Rebellion, a member of the 175
O V. I., and Ills whole life was on a
patriotic plane, commensurate with
the sacrifice he made in his enlistment
in time of danger.
For many years he has lived on the
farm, engaging In the arduous work
of the husbandman, until falling
health compelled him to give up its
more active duties.
April 7, 18C4, he and Sarah C. Davis
were united in marriage. True to
their marriage vows, for practically a
half century they have been loving
helpmates, in the Joys and sorrows,
the burdens and cares Incident to this
long Journey. To this union eleven
children were born, all of whom, but
one still survive him. This constitu
ted a large household, in which rev
erence for father and mother, on the
part of the children, and deepest lovo
for children, on the part of the par
ents, always abounded.
It was also a household of Faith.
Early in life he united with the M. E.
church, and so long as he lived there
after, he was a consistent member,
firm In his convictions and well es
tablished in his religious views. He
knew in Whom he trusted. He was,
in every sense a Methodist, loving it,
forms of worship. Its Wesleyan meth
ods appealed to him, and for forty
years he had served as class leader,
looking after the spiritual welfare of
that portion of the church assigned to
his keeping. He was "nofashamed of
the gospel," and was always ready to
testify in class meeting and at the
"love feast," to Its saving power.
How often had he read in the "Good
Book" of God's promise given to the
patriarch of old, when, assuring that
his people would sometime possess the
land of Canaan, also vouchsafed to
him a peaceful eddlng of a long life
pilgrimage, for he said: "And thou
shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou
shalt be burled In a good old age."
So, also did this good man como to
the end of his life, and was "burled
