Hia subject, "The Call of the Press in the Moun tains," is a timely one for discussion, and was well presented. We are glad to give it apace in our columns for the benefit of our readers.

In a community where the local sheet is progressive, the merchants are pro gressive and the progress extends thruout the territory covered by this paper.
