SUBSCRIBERS uro earnestly re?
quested to observe tho date
printed on their nddresB slips,
wliich will keep thuin at all

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

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

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.

The past year was most successful. The

Surely there is no surer and quicker
way for young men and women to attain
success than to complete a course In
some hightoncd business college sncti ns
this Institution is known 10 he. No
doubt there ire many young people in
this M i l ion that would do well to take
a course In this institution. It is not
necessary to have a High School or Col?
