It would be much easier then to distribute mail matter, and the chances for mail being miscarried would be lessened.

Miller The Imaly City Optic has the follow ing pertinent queries ami siigg ,-t ion: "When you want newspaper faor. you strke your home paper, don't you? If you want your town hoc n; d ami your prop rty increased in value, you expect your home paper to do it. don't you? Yet you kick because your home paper hasn't as mm h leading in it s a city papei . don't you? Mill en tl e whole y mi think your home paper U a mighty good pap r for a town, don't you?

The editor of the Maple Itapids I ;.--.'.. hits the nail squaiely un the h,--! when he says in legaid to pri cs on printing: "We can't compete with De troit, ( ii and 1 1 a pi ds or Ccago- neither can any of our business men," Would it not be fairer for a business man who is about to ordt r printing to a city con cern to think of this ami resohe from that time fm th to patronize his home printer. The average printer to siippoi t his family sj ends from -.',on to ,-luoo in liisbovn. It is seldom he goes out of town to get a dollar's woith.

It is a well known fad. that all na r chants in order to supply the demands of trade, must necessarily purchase a larger line of goods for the diifeivnt s-asons than they are enabled to sell, consequently they have more or less seasonable goods left over. The ''old fogy" meiehant fls a general rule, does not wish to sacrifice any on his "big profit." and carries th - goods oer from year to year until they are shdf worn, stale and out of style; but the lie merchant, eei alive to the interest of his business r.s well as those of his patrons, endeavors to get rid of all goods out of season, at cost or een be low, if need be. as the same kinds of goods can be pun based fresh and new when tin' season again opens for them, then they also make room for new goods constancy coming in, these facts are ; illustrated at the Bee Hive dealing sale, beginning Jan. bth when those wishing anything in the line of winter goods, which they advertise, can git some big bargains at per cent olf t heir usual pi ices. On Friday evening of last week, a meeting was called by the clerks of our town to organize an association to b known as the Alma Clerks' Association The object of the meeting is to promote hauiiony between employers and em ployes.

A meeting of the Gratiot County Agricultural Society was held at the oflice of Wm. E.

The following oilicers and directors of thu society were present: President. Silas Moody. Secretary. -O. F. Jackson, Treasurer. Wilbur Nelson, Directors. F. W. Hooper, Arcada. James Jenne. Ithaca; II. B. Angell, Pine Fiver; L. Sweatland. North Star. They effected a purchase of thel"acres now enclosed ando? acres on the east and south of the enclosure, making 2'j acies' to be used as fair grounds by the society. The amount paid was MiNi.no per acre, and the sum of $300 was paid down, which includes the "Sioo.wi appropriated by the board of supervisors iu Januray 1SS". This places the societv in a fair way to pros perity ami gives them the chance (with the assistance of the farmers in the future as they have done in the past three yearsi of soon ow ning their own grounds, and we see no reason why Gratiot countv mav not lead some of the older counties in its Agricultural fairs.
