IT LOOKS GOOD Watch the bond market and you will gyt a fair indication "f what the near future will bring us. Pot Some time pa-t the market has been strong, D?ving has been heavy and prices have been kept ? ell up. This means but one thing. People w ho have money are regaining confidence ami are seeking means of investing. The fellow with a tew hundreds 01 thousands i- taking it from] it- hiding place and is Inlying honds He i< no longci pessimistic of the future. He sees increased commercial activity and consequent prosperity ahead, ami he is right. livery bond issue that is floated means more work for idle people, It means an expansion in business, an increased volume of trade, more money in circu? lation, and that money passing from hand to hand. Prosperity is the mutual result. If you have any savings stored away you are quite safe in bringing them out ami putting them to work. The time lot action is here. THE TOWN COW Spinn; lime would l.e a grand time foi sleep if il was not foi the infamous town cow; l.iardens, love? ly gardens and just plain old pool man's vegetable patches, are chewed up and trampled down jhyei night, No phase of small tow n life 1- more costly, mure annoying or more desirui ii\ e than the inroads of prowling cows. Every yeat Flossy and her bo; vine kin destroy many dollars north ni garden ti tick. The town council could pel tot in an ait of hicsji mahle value h> parsing an ordinance requiring all owners ?>f cow .- to keep them up at nights There is 110 necessity of keeping the old cabillige eaters u\< during tin- day. for during the wakeful hour- people can keep their eves ..pen and hold a In ich in readi nc-s to hurl a brick at the provoking old pirates Night 1- tin tune when gardens are swejit awav. for the cow like two-legged thieves work when watchful eye- aie closed. Morton has passed an ordinance of tin- kind and it has worked no hai'dship on am owner lil a row I There is a fine of $2.00 for the owner every time Floss) gets out ami picks the lock on a garden Kate. This is just, fair and should receive the earnest c?n ! sideration of our council. FIND THE WAY The incessant war between capital and labor is one of the greatest obstructions to the prosperity of this country. It is ever present, and seems to have no end. Every strike that occurs costs thousands of dol? lars, t?ten it runs into tuitions, and the whole COttntry sutlers because of a disagreement between a small propotion of the population. Labor must be protected or it will be crushed by unset upuloits capitalists. Capital must be protected or it will perish at the bands of unscrupulous labor leaders ami the radical element of their following. ( lue cannot exist without the other, and the coun? try cannot survive without bulb. Under existing conditions neither side can be trusted tn give the other a square deal all around. They have fought *o long the Golden Rule appears to have passed from their memories. And since the Gulden Knie will not suffice, gov? ernment rule should take its place. There is a way to adjust these differences Oil a basis that would he fair and just to all.but we du not appeal to have the man available who possesses the brain- iieccssery to discover that way and enforce it. Find the man who can find the way. ami clothe him with power to act NOW IS TIME FOR "NOSINESS." We often express our disapproval of "nosey" peo? ple, ami justly so. Hut there are times when a lit? tle "nosiness" on the part of every citizen would be of benefit to this town. liight now is oiie of those tithes. Weaie in favoi of everybody getting out and nosing around town ami joining in a general clean? up. The town need- it. and what the town needs we need.

It is betwixt ami be? tween, a condition which admits of improvement. II the rest of the good people in this town are will? ing ami ready to join the editor in a cleanup cam? paign ii w ill be done.
