In this issue appears the announce

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.
