FAREWELL The old newspaper press, which has been the agent In printing ac counts of many Joys and sorrows, many comings and goings, tragedies, comedies, births, deaths, marriages, and In fact detailing the history that Is now yesterday, has finished Its career nnd has been taken down. Another and larger press will be In stalled In a week or two. It will become the agent of telling the same kind of occurences as the days go by, until it too goes to the Junk pile. The home town newspaper Is something that has no great tangible value, hut in it are crowded the hopes and fears, the tears and smiles of Its generation and the old pres has been a factor In making the lives of the people brighter, and, we trust. In assisting the moral forces of righteousness to make the county a better place in which to live. Not being" laid on a solid foundation, the old pre?s had a rather uphill Job to perform, hut in spite of all kinds of treatment from all kinds of hands. It has done Its dutv and deserves a better end than a Junk pile, but Its cry size prevents us from making a pet of it. Besides, we too shall have to He down after a while and let the ret of tho world go by. Well for us If we have done as good work as the old prefs.
