THE COUNTRY NEWSPAPER
William Allen White has in
Harper's Magazine (May) an ar
ticle on the Country Newspaper
which deserves wide reading. He
says in tho concluding para
Our papers, our little country
papers, seems darb and miserably
provincial to strangers; yet wc,
who read them read in their lines
tho sweet, intimate story o life.
And all these touches of nature
make us wondrous kind. It is the
country newspaper, bringing to
gether daily the thread's of the
town's life, Aveaviug them into
something rich and strange, and
setting the pattern as it weaves,
directing the loom, and giving the
cloth its color by mixing the lives
of all the people in its color-pot
it is this country newspaper that
reveals us to ourselves, that keeps
our country hearts quick and our
country minds open and our coun
try faith strong.
"Therefore men and brethren,
when you are riding through the
vale of tears upon the California
Limited, and, by chance, pick up
the little country newspaper with
its meager telegraph service oi
three or four thousand words or,
at best, fifteen or twenty thou
sand; wheD you see its array of
countryside items; its intermina
ble local stories; its tiresome edi
torials on the waterworks, the
schools, the street railway, the
crops, and the city printing, don't
throw down the contemptible lit
tle rag with the verdict that there
is nothing in it. But know this,
and know it -well: If you could
take the clay from your eyes and
read the little paper as it is writ
ten, you would find all of God's
beautiful, sorrowing, struggling,
aspiring world in it, and what you
saw would make you touch the lit
tie paper with reverent hands."
NEW EDITOR AT OUSTAR
Mr. A. B. Smith, former owner
and editor of the Deshler Mag, has

News," suspended in September
by E. A. Norcross
Mr. Smith retired from, the
newspaper game some time ago
when he disposed or the JJesliler
paper, but somehow or other he
just had to "get back" and is now
at his new port as editor and pub
lisher of "The Custar News."
Syrian and Armenian Relief
Perrysburg town and township
has been apportioned $876.00 for
the Syrian and Armenian Relief
Fund, and the collection turned
over by the Liberty Loan Commit
tee to the Womans Committee oi
the counsel of National Defense
Owing to the short time given us
the committee fears that we will
not go over the top as we have on
every other occasion, unless eacn
one makes an effort to contribute
whether solicited or not. Bring or
send your money to either bank by
Saturday if not called upon. There
has never been a more worthy cause
The war is nearly over. Let us not
fail at the last! Let's go over the top.
