CLARENCE TOWNKKND Notary Public. Newspapers editors are valuable friends sometimes, and the best way to gain their friendship is by kindly consideration. If you have anything for publication in this paper send it in as early in the week as possible, because the paper cannot be gotten out in a day, and when everyone puts off till the end of the week, it puts the editor and all of his help on a dead rush. In this condition mis takes are made, everybody gets out of patience, and things generally go wrong. Make it a habit to help your editor get out a good paper by send ing in your advertisements, your lo cal notices and your orders for print ing early in the week, and you will help to make a better paper.
