We realize that the liquor dealers are anxious to get their matter before the people, and they are shrewd enough business men to know that in no other way can they do this so effectually n throIgh the local papers. Realiz that his is the surest way possible of reaching all classes of people, and all the people, they do not stop to quibble about price, loca tion, etc., but are ready and will ing to pay the price demanded. Nor does the editor have to go and hunt un this class of advertising. as it comes to him in almost un limited quantities, with a cheerful ness and insistancy that would de light his heart if it came from an other source. We believe that we are safe in saying that the average local paper in territory that has recently gone "dry," has, since the first of Jannarv, received offers of I more advertising from liquor deal ers than they have from all the lo. cal business men combined, yet we are glad to see that but a few of the papers in this section, have sold their space and influence to a traffic which they openly tipposed but a few short months ago. The press has exerted more influence in r the anti-saloon fight than any oth er one institution, and it ill be hooves it now to side-step from the line of duty which it has hither to so clearly discerned, for the sake - of the additional revenue that comes from carrying advertisements 9 for the mail order liquo'`r houses. Stick to your guns, gentlemen, you d helped to make many parishes of , this state dry, in name, help to ~- make it so, in fact, to the extent d of refusing to carry thi' class of advertising in your columns.

He has a hoste of friends here, who wish him a pleasant journey home and a safe return As a testimonial of their esteem the bible class of the Congregation al Sunday school, where he was a constant attendant, presented him with a beautiful watch fob and charm, last Sunday. Welsh has the best sidewalks of any town in the state, and more miles of them in proportion to her population. Not only the stranger in our midst feels this to be the case, but the home people as well, and as a result, there has been a decided improvement of practically every property along which walks have been laid during the past few months. New walks, new fences or old fences removed, new paint and new buildings are making Welsh have the appearance of be ing the live. prosperous town that, she is. If yl have not fixed upi your place yet. it is up to you to get busy and keep up with the procession. Mr. and Mrs. Sprague, who so delightfully entertained the people of this vicinity with the play, "Es meralda," a few days ago, spent " Thursday and Friday of last week in Welsh, resting and enjoying the [surrounding scenery. They are - both more than delighted with SWelsh and are already negotiating for suitable property here, with the intention of making this their home if they succeed in securing what they want. Dr. John P. Rauch, sec and treasurer of the American V erinary Remedy company of phis, Tennessee, was here days the latter part of last and the forepart of this, inv ing the cause of so many casse lameness among the horses mules in this vicinity. He giv as his opinion that this laz a form of kidney disease, in an excess of uric acid is f causing a condition closely bling rheumatism or gout. says it is caused, to a large by the large quantity of soft that is being used. That Jennings is deeply cerned in regard to the good of her vicinity, is evidenced the fact that at the election voting a 5 mill road tax, heM Ward 10, Tuesday,' that little village hustled around got nineteen of her citizens enough concerned in the sub' go to the polls and vote.
