T. Lanhara TO CORRESPONDENTS Kindly have your commit' nicattons to reach us as ear ly as Tuesday morning. Iu our last issue we published a financial statement showing the receipts and disbursements of the committee for the re-un ion. It shows that more money has been expended than taken in. Messrs. H. E. Hume, J. C. ripkin and J. M. Thacker made a note in the bank for $105.00 which has been due some little time. Now of course these gen tlemen can probably renew as the bank people are very accom modating, but it is not fair that they should carry this burden. Mr. Thacker is gone and Messrs. Hume and Pipkin certainly have done enough for the reun ion without having this note to carry, therefore, we would sug gest that some plan be adopted to raise the money and pay this indebtedness off and be rid of ifr The published list shows a good nany things, one is that some people have contributed liberal ly while others have not, etc. What it does not show is" the relative amount of labor given for which not even thanks have been rendered and no men in town deserve more ipraise for hard work done, money and time given than II. E. nume and J. C. Pipkin. An old adage says "j-oucan drive a willing horse to death." Now these two should be relieved of this note. Suggestions are in order. We have received many com nlimfntc nn thp inrrpnsed size and improved appearance of the Stayer, but so far only seventy live on subscriptioK - from town readars. Now we have always done all we could for the up building of the town and cer tainly think we deserve a more liberal patronage from the peo ple. In a community like this where people are trying to build up a good town and prosperous country around it, no one indi vidual or firm can live for them selves alone or hope to get all they can without paying a share of the general expense necessary to the success of the town. We have sent many thousands of papers, out for which we have not received a cent. Some of the business people have given us liberal and steady patronage, others what they were compel led to, and that grudgingly. Only three business men send a paper abroad. Now let us see how other towns do these things. Here ford, our neighbor, for example, The Reporter charges just twice as much for advertising space as we do, and gets it, their sub scription price is 1.50 per year and every business manintown advertises and each one pays cash for the paper beside. The Hereford bank, alone, pays from $20 to 50 per month for advertising space and job work. The Reporter sends to subscrib ers only. The difference is just this: Hereford people realize that no town can succeed with out a paper, and a paper cannot do good work unless it is sup ported. DA paper must pay its running expenses if it is respect ed and unless it is, it is no cred it to the town. We have been struggling along trying to get out a paper that reflects the prosperity of the town, but it is up hill work with the support we get, we therefore must eith er get better patronage or cur tail the paper to tit what we do get. Thi' Stn.ver office has put in a tele phone to aid us in gathering news from tlu lower country as well as other purpose. Now help us to make the in-st paper in the country. SEPTEMBER The golden-rod is yellow, The corn is turning brown; The trees in apple orvimrils With' fruit are bending down; The gentian's bluest, fringes Are curling in the sun; in dusty pods the milkweed Its hidden silk has spun. The sedges Haunt their harvest In every meadow nook, And asters by the brookslde Make asters in the brook. From dewy lanes at morning The grain's sweet odors rise; At noon the roadsides flutter With yellow butterflies.

Vacation's mighty fine o' course, But there are drawbacks, too. A fellow's folks is always sure To find him work to do.

The worstest thing there is about Vacation is the end Just when you know youve only got. A week or so to spend'. A loatin' around the swimmin hole An' catchin' speckeled trout, An' pkiyin' cow boy too, an' all You've done since school let out; It makes a fellow catch his breath And wear a sheepish grin To think of all the fun he'll miss When school lets in Parades is mostly lots of fun, But one knocks out that rule That 's the parade that my class makes The tirstest day of school.

But after school's been in a day, And we get straightened out, And get our lessons good, we like The tilings we learn about. At recess we play prisoner's base, An' pulhiway, an' spin Our tops. Then, after all, we're glad That school lets in. Raymond Fuller Ayers. A SHOCKING CALAMITY "l.ati'lv bi fell a railroad laborer," writes fr. A. Kcllett, of Williford, Ark.
