In this issue appears the announce ment of R. A. Powell as a candidate for the nomination for trustee. Mr. Powell made the race for this office means of bettering conditions for ourselves, our neighbors and our com munity. At the' head of this organi zation should be placed our most wide awake, progressive business men, who have the ability and willingness to lead. Then our ladies should also have some organization in which they could meet and discuss and devise ways and means for concerted action looking to the betterment of our town, but neither can the men or women de very much so long as every one is goint it alone. ' There must be con certed action. We must work to gether, we must have the same pur poses and desires. We need to run the knocker out of town, we don't have any room for him. The man who will stand around on the street corners and tell a stranger and pros pective citizen that he should be care ful lest he falls among thieves and land sharks, is a knocker and his room is more preferable than his company. He is an enemy to our town. Our realestate men are honest, high class men and should receive the hearty support and co-operation of us all. We need to be boosters instead of knockers, then let us begin to boost. Let us talk about our advantages in stead of our disadvantages. Let us quit crying "hardtimes" and set about to make goodtimes. Conditions art just about what we want them to be, if they were not we would set about to make them different, Then for our country, let us get our farmers together m some kind of a farmer's association and get the farm ers to work together in a sensible, business way. As it is now every farmer is working for himself with out any thought of the other fellow; he moves along in the same way, not knowing possibly, 'that there is a different and better way, when if he belonged to a live, wide-awake farm ers' organization, he would meet with his fellow farmers and give and take new ideas and methods and go back to his farm better prepared to make a success of his business. There are so many ways that we might better conditions that space forbids mention of them further in this article, but the editor's efforts will be in vain if we fail to take ad vantage of the opportunity he has! Riven for the discussion of subjects that will be helpful through the col ums of the Chronicle. So come on some one' else. i,et us organize; let us quit knock ing; let us boost our town and county.
