THE ELECTION AND BUSINESS We believe the American people are capable of attending to the mat ter of electing a president this fall and still attending to their business ; for 'inertia in Wheth that the usual alibi business will not hold good, er the people want a change of ad ministration or whether they want to leave things ns they are, there cer for our letting tainly is no excuse down the bars of inactivity in ourj** commercial relationshij)s and In our dally work. We should all work as hard as we vote. This will keep the wheels of progress moving. The very fact that there is a traditional slump in busi ness during presidential election years should stimulate us on to greater efforts. SUPPORT GRANGEVILLE More and more is competition teaching out to devour, either hon estly or dishonestly, all within- its grasp. This is true of cities, towns and villages. Cities and towns now advertise the same as business ad vertises. Perhaps not altogtber by the same methods, but they advertise. The fact that a business advertises shows that it is in a field of competi tion. The doctrine of the survival of the fittest takes hold; and right now in the United States we are pass ing Into the era of strong competi tion between various sections of the country, and between cities, towns, and communities. A healthy condi tion, and ns for such competition we might say that it is the very life of I our national growth. But this calls for an added zeal and devotion to J our own community, and to our local I merchants and lines of business. Almost a new patriotism arises, which calls for a wholesome and | united effort on the part of the ci tizens of Grangeville to buy at home, to save at home ,to work at home; to build up the home community and 1 tn Clothes Practice Economy «3 As you glace about, it is easy to distinguish the well dressed men—the men whose clothes are custom tailored from goods of beautiful, rich and pure wool quality. If you are wearing that kind, it is a wonderful satis faction. If you are not, let us remind you that you can if you will but determine to do L \' ' 7 V t (Pi Â I A « } so. V Custom Tailored Clothes % cost no more than the less desirable kind. Our absolutely 100 per cent all wool fabrics, in more than a hundred patterns, ctdor effects and weaves, arc available for your own choice, which we will be pleased to make up for yon into a stylish, perfect-fitting custom tailored suit to your measure. W >a* We welcome you to look over these new Fall and Win ter fabrics W. J. SOLTMAN V Ji A Better Quality Clothes ( i » f then see to it that It keeps built tip. We heard of a town that had as its slogan, "Watch It Grow." A better "Help It | slogan would have been, Grow." REDUCE CROSSING ACCIDENTS A current report to the Intel-state Commerce Commission shows a per centage reduction of crossing acci dents of a certain great railway system to be 8.1 per thousand regis tered automobiles for six months compared with six months of last year. This is yet 01.9 too many. Casualty lists of grade crossings, coming by "bits" and in different sections of the country, do not seem so appalling; but when lumped they compare "favorably" with five cas ualty lists of war. When we can reduce carelessness we can reduce crossing accidents. When we increase the efficiency of automobile drivers, raise the stand ards for qualification ns drivers, and ien come aa nearly as possible el iminating all grade crossings, we will reduce carelessness, or at least help to prevent it It is a problem both in mathemat ics and in morals. The railroads, too, must come in for their share of responsibility, but that does not re lieve the rest of us from our duty of being careful and of protecting the lives of those in our car. WHY SHOULD YOU TAKE YOUR HOME PAPER? For the post several months coun try editors all over the United States have been explaining in the Publish era* Auxiliary,- which is the newspa per's newspaper, the reasons why people who live In a community should subscribe , for, and support the home paper. One of the shortest and best lg printed below, it is from Will C. Carson, publisher of tbe Greenville, (Ill.) Advocate. "There are Innumerable reasons why the people of this commun ity should subscribe for the Greenville Advocate. Here are just a few of them : 1. This newspaper gives the news of its field and the fact that it has a circulation of more than 3,000 paid in advance, in a county of only 16,000 population, is indicative that the people are appreciative of its efforts in pre senting the news in a readable manner without fear or favor. 2. It is a constant booster for all improvements that are for the best interests of the community. 3. It is n consistent exponent of clean journalism. 4. It prints the news in an un biased manner and is free lance editorially. 5. It spares no pains nor ex pense to get the news accurate. 4 i 6. It seeks first and foremost to rentier a public service." I While the editor of the Idaho Coun j ty Free Press agrees with most the points set forth above, yet, we would like to add a few or our own. The country newspaper rs a clear ing house for not only the current news of the communltj, nut is medium of expression in all local sub jects. It is an absolute record of the legal publications of your county and will keep you informed in the matter of births, deaths, marriages, etc. The local newspaper Is worth many times its price to you when you have sales to offer or when you wish to buy. It keeps you informed as to the progress of schools, churches lodges and other community interests. It is an unrivalled medium where by the merchant con reach the buyer, cheaply and quickly. And last but not least the local newspaper is the true index of the particular environment in which yon live. In ninety-nine cases out of one hundred, a stranger interested in your town or neighborhood, comes in and gets a copy of the local newspaper. If it looks up-to-date, if It looks pros perous, if it is well-filled with at tractive home advertising ; his first impression is of the right kind. A country newspaper is recognized by the postal department of our gov ernment as a quasi-public institution. It is hedged about by regulations and reports second only to the local,bank and was looked upon by the framers of the constitution as one of the bul warks of education, intelligence and adancement And, the price is within the reach We invite you. if not of everyone, already one, to become a subscriber to the Idaho County Free Press.
