January 1st, 10i:t. in the equal suf/argo Btates women will get 31 sooner than th'oy uscil to. All of us have something to bo thankful for if WO but stop to think of it. In tho oast women are learn? ing to run elevators. Is this going up or tlown With ht> ? videnco to tho con? trary we suppose rotton politi? cians are made of spoilt hoys. This is the day when every? body is good The trouble isi we don't slay good. We have never yet seen a mini so loyal to his party that I he would refuse votes from the other side. The Republican parly has come to a pretty pass when the i country refuses to he upset by a Domocrntic victory It you want to Mutter a person and have it slick, |usi tell him that he is not easily Mattetet!. Why a w oinan has any trouble in picking a hat ig a mystery to us, (Ine Rooms just us had as another Prosperity seems to cause more discontent than does hard times. The more there is toget I the more folks imigino tln v are not getting their share. An exchange Buys that flour and lard is getting SO high that It is necessary to enlarge the si/.e of the hole ill the dough? nut. Resolve Jo send the Wise Printing Company your job printing during 19111 would bo U splinded resolution and one that you will never regret you made. See. A person who can't get along with Ins neighbors will usually lind that the fault is not with the neighbors. We hope you all bad a merry Christmas and that the New Year will be the happiest III all your life. We have had a jolly good time and fe.-l as happy as can be on this the first day of January, 1913, l.et us all strive during 1913 to make Hig Stone Cap and Wi80 County the host place in the world to live. We can all do a lot towards building up our community if we will only try. There isn't a man in Virginia that would make a better gov ernor than .lodge 11 A W Bkeen, and the Old Dominion would do honor to itself by electing him. We do not be? lieve, however, that the "ring politicians" of the state would want Judge Skeen made gover? nor. If you nro looking for n place I to locuto whore your family :cun l>nvo social noil education Inl advantaged the equal of any place in the SOVth, come to Big 'Stone Unp. This place is the center of one of the most active sections in the United States. So completely has public opinion changed, that, if the Aliens' trials wore just being begUll today none of them I would perhaps get more than twenty years and most likely Clerk (ioad, who started the tir? ing would gel a sentence, too. ? llani|iton .Monitor. The Virginia senators and reprosunuitiveu nro said to be hnuuimons for the passage <>f the hill now before the Senate prohibiting the shipment of liquor from "wot" Stales into the "dry" territory of othoi States, 11 traffic that has grown into wondorful proportions through the mail order system. The lull is fought on the ground of its unconstitutionality, in that it would interfere with interstate COUimorco and the rights of citizens.?Petersburg Progress. The new postofitco building at this place was opened to the public today, and from now on the people of l'.ig Stone tiap can boast of one of the finest places to receive their mail of any town in the South. IC> orj padon of the office should co? operate with the federal author? ities in keeping it clean and al? ways in good condition. Ifivi rj effort will be used by those in charge of the building to keep i< clean and in good order, but if the public fulls to co operate with them their efforts will not be successful No one should think of throwing papers on the Me..i or striking a match on tin walls, or spitting on the ll?i l I and if these habits are indulged in in a little while I he inside of the building will be defaced ami unsightly, in spite of tlio vlgi lenuo of the employes of tin building t If cours! the law j prohibits all these things and will be rigidly enforced, but, as we said above, unless the pub? lic co-operates with the author? ities in keeping the building in good order, in spite of the law it .vill becomo defaced and un? sightly ill II little while. So. let's all do our best to help keep lb" place where wij n ceive our mail the prettiest place in town and a place we can all look to with pride. It mlglil be a go...I idea for (be Civic league to? talen this matter up and help educate the public to a strict observance of the law govern? ing public buildings. The new Federal building : which was opened to the public today is wired for a throe-phaseI system therefore all the lights I will not burn until further ad i juslmoiits are made.

Doubtless there will be mole or less shifting of positions m the next Legislature, and whether you will regard the Innm who do the shifting as pa (riots or traitors depends upon whether they shift lo or from your fiction. --Bristol Herald Courier.
