Before exhausting all of its energies in attempting lb re stort> normal conditions ami a prospect of peace throughout the world it would he well for the government to devote a lit-' tie time and elfort toward sup? pressing the reign of banditry llint in sweeping over our own land. In the hnloyou days of the "wild and woolly went," when had men thrived und the six-gun ruled, respectable citi-l icons found it iioccsanry to baud themselves together as vigilance ; committees in order to suppress lawlessness when the courts' und the sheriffs and marshals failed. They took tin? law into their own hands, decorated con. venient trees with the worst of! the desperadoes, and served no? tice on others thai their health would be best coiiHerved by a hasty departure The vigilante methods ware rather crude, hut highly effective, und inol with; the populur approval of respec? tability ami decency. <tf uourso we would hardly recommend a I similar course to the law abid? ing citizens of our large cuiitei * of population whore crime nour? ishes ami is on the increase, hut surely Home olfeolivn notion | will noon become necoBsaly if We are to prevoilt this country from falling into the hands of mi element that has no regard for anything tint their own will When pride leaves a Commu? nity prosperity generally goes with it.

The man who has no pride in bis burrouud ingH possesses little ambition to advance in life Vor that rea? son he dobs not become one of those energetic boosters and producers who are the "mak? ing" of a community. Let us make 102'2 a year of pride In our homes, ami our people, and our S1-60 ,75 .40 agricultural and commercial activities. Pride may come by fore a fall, but it is a fact tbut it also serves to keep many a fellow oo bis feet. Tbe fellow wbo tries to please everybody is never satisfied w itb biuiBelf. If all people wore required to livo on what they honestly earn we fear some of our illustrious millionaires would starvo to death. We have no doubt there uro still some honest men left in the world. At least they claim to be.
