Because Every game should be played for the sake of the game. Real sport should not be lowered to the plane of betting. Clean sport demands that the game 1 'Washington and ehould be played for 1he love of the game itself and not for the money there is in It. Do not spoil good sport by bad practice.

THERE IS NO PROJECT BEFORE the people of Lake county, ex cepting only that of deep waterway development, wnicn is oi sucn lar reaching importance as the plan to drain the marsh region of the Little Calumot river and convert thousands of acres of rich land into farms. In the northern part of the county, along the shore of Lake Michigan, Is being developed one of the most wonderful Industrial regions which the world has ever known. Here the raw material is brought to the center of population and distribution to be converted into the products which are to supply the nation. Along with this amazing development has come a remarkable growth In population, and if the prophesies of the most conservative of the cap tains of industry, who are pouring their millions of dollars into the devel opment of the possibilities of this favored spot come true, there will be a million people in Lake county before the baby boys, just born, become of age. The industrial importance of the region Is now a recognized fact. The agricultural importance of the county Is still a matter of vague conjecture. But the fact remains that within a decade or two a million people must be fed from the products of the farms. Whether Iz will be from the farms of Lake county or those of more distant parts of the state will be deter mined by the people of this community. No one who ever traveled over the famous Elgin and Aurora electric line in Ilinois or on the Northwestern railroad through Wisconsin, has failed to notice the fine country roads, magnificent farm-houses surrounded by villages of bulging barns, the sleek well-bred cattle, the waving fields of grain and the general air of substantial prosperity which Is in evidence everywhere. Very few of the sojourners through this splendid farming country have stopped to think that those agriculturists who have running water and electric lights in their country places, are enabled to afford those luxuries for the reason that they are feeding two million people. And that is just the task which is before the agriculturalists and their children in Lake county. Every foot of land which it fit for cultivation should be made available for that purpose. Sam Woods, who conducts a model stock farm a few miles north of Crown Point, showed the rare foresight which should characterize every farmer in Lake county when he went to A. F. Knotts a year or so ago and asked for the exclusive right to supply the people of Gary with pure milk. Sam Woods, the hard headed farmer that he is, saw that the task of feeding r0,000 people at Gary would have to be taken up by some one and he proposed to supply the milk and cream. If Sam Woods' children follow in his footsteps they will be millionaires. But Gary wants other farmers to supply it with eggs, butter, radishes, cheese, beans, potatoes, hay and a score of other things which are raised on the farms. The people of the growing cities of Hammond, Whiting, East Chicago and Indiana Harbor will increase their daily demands. Millions of dollars in wages will pour into the region when its de velopment has reached its heighth and a large part of those millions will go to the tillers of the soil. How important it Is then that every available acre of land in Lake county be made to produce its maximum of wealth. How Important that the thousands of useless acres, which are now annually submerged by the rampant waters of the Little Calumet, be reclaimed to the farmers' uses. If it pays the government to spend millions of dollars in reclaiming the deserts when they are thousands of miles from the market, how much more important is it for the people of Lake county to reclaim marsh lands now worth $u an acre and increase its productiveness until it is worth $500. There will doubtless be some opposition on the part of the farmers of Lake and Porter counties to the proposed ditch which is to drain the head waters of the Little Calumet river into Lake Michigan, but it is to the interest of every other farmer in this region to become a minister of the gospel of good drainage and either directly or indirectly he will profit by the carrying out of this project. Thousands of dollars of taxes will pour into the county treasury from a new source ana Lane county win nave its . igins and Auroras. The valley of the Little Calumet may yet product something besides wild ducks and geese. Beca use Gambling will lead you away from good company into bad. Gamblers do not belong to good society. They and their kind herd together. If you herd with them you must get down to their level. You can't keep clean and live in the mud. Because It will unfit you for business. The fellow who sits up half the night to play poker is in poor shape to solve business problems the next day. He who keeps his eye on the race track or the board of trade quotations must take his eye off his business. And he who neglects business Is unreliable. He cannot serve two masters. Because The fever of gambling will soon get into your blood and vitiate your life. Instead of giving every man a square deal you will come to look for the ad vantage you may take of every man. Ami shortly you will come to the place where the fine flush to honest endeavor and the fine edge to honor will disap pear. Aud because And this perhaps is the last thing that will restrain you so we put It last because it is wrong. by violence in Indiana during the month of May this year.

PAROLE SAW WORKS WELL. The board of state charities has re ceived from the state prison at Michi gan City and the reformatory at Jeffer- sonville reports on the operation of the indeterminate sentence and parole laws. There is now a record of eleven years bark of these laws, and t!". results achieved under them indicate that their enforcement is of decided advantage to the state. JOURNALISTS GET JOIIS.

IN POLITICS The political candidates who were in Gary yesterday helped to give the glad hand to members of the Chicago Press club who invaded the city. Whether it will do them much good, however, next fall remains to be seen. The gallant Dyer baseball boys should remember that to be called a farmer Is to be called an honest man, and one of nature's noblemen. The true farmer is as proud of the nami as If he had been called king, for he is king of his own realm. Women are fnnny creatures after nil. A Hammond lady honestly believes that Roose velt vras nominated for ex presldent at the Chicago convention. Sibley Street Man: "Have you for gotten that you owe me ten dollars?" Clinton Street Man: "No, I haven't, but I will If you want me to." The news of Taft's nomination for president, Thursday evening, caused no enthusiasm in Crown Point. It was only what was expected, and the same ran be said of the Denver convention in July. It will be Bryan, and the democrats have become so accustomed to run him for president that that, too, will be an old chestnut. Crown Point Star. Martinsville, Ind., June 24.
