Ass't Editor Ono Yoir, - ?I.OO Six Months, - .OO Thrss Months, - .26 Kntorcd accortllnij to postal regulations at tho posl-ofllco at IHk Stono (lap as seo ouil-olsss matter. SUBSCRIBERS uro earnestly re? quested to observe tho date printed on their nddresB slips, wliich will keep thuin at all times postod as to tho dato of tho expiration of their sub? scription. Prompt and timely attention to this request will save all parties a great deal of annoyance. Tho man who persistontly ignores improved methods of farming is himself eventually ignored by tho goddess of for? tune. The surprising thing is that Mr. Hughes desires to become the president of a country that has got into such a miserable condition. It bus been demonstrated from time to time that strikes can be settled without compell? ing the general public to bear hardships in whose creation it had no part. Now that the crowned beads of Europe have all boon to the front, the next act on the dock? et should be the decorating of one another for conspicuous gallantry on the field of safety. Signs are, that Candidate HugllOS will continue to he so busy assailing President Wil? son's policies, that he won't have time to tell just what bo will do if elected. Try it for one day. G ivo a cheerful word to every one you see from the time you awake until you go to sleep at night. Then note the change in your own feelings, General Nelson A. Miles thinks a federation of nations would put an end to war. S? do we. Put the trouble is, the kings and emperors and other potentates won't listen to ei? ther Miles or us. It is reported that English women are likely soon to get the right of vote, and in view of the fact that most of the men arc now at Hie front there doesn't Beam to bo any way to stop them. Returning good for evil may be like heaping coals of tire on tho offender's bead, but be who shows kindness merely be? cause be thinks it will sting and hurt, is only taking a mean revenge, instead of winning for himself a blessing.?Selected. The critsis in the news print paper situation, which already has cut down newspaper profits enormously, will not be reach? ed before late October, when contracts come up lor renewal, according to reports received at Washington from many sources by tho federal trade commis? sion. If some live merchant will spend au hour or two some evening with bis Htore bPntls drawn and install a handsome and attractive window display, something unique and out of the orditiary, and then adver? tise it in this paper, we venture the prediction that ut least half of the people in ibis communi? ty will bo around to see it. And many bf them will buy just because thoy happen to be there. Advertising will get the people to a store that is worth going to, but the mer? chant and bis own goods must do the selling.
