FRIDAY, JULY 18, 1913 NUMBER 27 MUFFLERS "CUT OUT" Usually, the man who lives near the crest of a hill is no lov er of automobiles. For, in order to make the grade before his house, eight drivers out of ten will "cut out" mufflers and as cend with the noise of a thousand miniture gatling guns. To sit on the piazza of the house near the hill top a summer evening is like experiencing an old fashion fourth of July, such as was re veled in long before the rise of the "sane Fourth" idea. Most cities now have noise as well as speed ordinances. And it is well. Unnecessary noise is a nuisance and should every where be abated. We are living in a noisy age. Incredible indeed would it have seemed to our fore fathers to be told that within a generation or so laws would have to be enacted against mak ing noise! Men used to flee from the din of the city when nerves could no longer stand the noise-shocks, and seek the quietness of the house on the hill amid the ex panse of peaceful rural acres. But in this motor age, even the country has been invaded by the noise of unmuffled explosions, raking the nerves of the peace ful dwellers by the road side. How many people there are running thru life with mufflers "cut out"! They make a tre mendous amount of unnecessary noise as they go along. The air is filled with their disturbances. Their whole moral machinery is noisy. There are folks who are forever telling about their good deeds. They spend hours in ex toling their charities. They want the community to appreci ate their philantropic spirits. They are continually blowing trumphets before themselves. They do their alms to be seen of men. Other people are always telling their troubles. They glory in the capture of some unfortunate into whose ears they may pour their tale of woe. Their cheif topic of conversation concerns their own troubles.

And then there are people who go thru life with their "worry muffler" "cut out". They are never quiet, never confident, never aggree able or congeniel. They must constantly discuss the possibili ties. They are forever borrow ing trouble. The. throw into "low" long before the hill is reached. There are people in the world who go along their way as seren ly as a six-cylinder limousine over macadamized roads! The motor plant is subdued so that we are conscious of power but not of noise or gasoline. The engine may be exerting power but it is doing it silently. These are the folks who really live, and living themselves they make life brighter for others. Their lives are well-ordered, and will not exhaust into the atmosphere. It pays to use the muffler. Moreover it is the only fair thing to the dwellers by the road-side. Most people are bearing burdens about equal to their strength. The considerate traveler will strive to add as little as possible to the confusion and discourage ments of the country thru which he is passing. "LEANS" VS. THE "FATS" The "Fats" and the "Leans" crossed bats last Sunday after noon on the local diamond and the game of base ball was indulg ed in during the afternoon. Of course, the "Leans" won the game by a score of 20 to 11, and the game proved very exciting throughout. The "Leans" as well as "Fats" changed players so often that it would be impossible to give a line-up of the two teams, but some excellent ball was play ed and it plainly showed that Wi baux certainly has some local base ball talent. We would hardly ad vise the boys to challenge any team at present because next win ter would be a much agreeable time for them to play as the cold weather would have a tendency to make the "Fats" move around in faster time. Of course, all the boys played well but special men tion should be made of Dennie Drove and "Missou" Stockstill, who are by far, the two ''rottenest" base ball players in the world. The "Fats" have adopted a battle cry which goes something like this "Never again. NEW MEAT j MARKET OPEN! The new butcher shop which j has been rilmored for some time past is now a reality, Adolph j Timmerman having opened up! for business on Wednesday morn- j ing of this week. He purchased j a complete butcher's outfit and it is the latest and most improved. His ice box is the latest and is sanitary.
