VISITING AND ROADS
One of the needs of country life
is a better social life. It has been
found that good roads are condu
cive to social life on the farms.
When the road is good it is an easy
matter to hitch up and drive over
to the neighbors, to church, to the
picnic, to the entertainment at the
school house. The good road is al
so followed by a better school and
better homes. The better class of
people will want to live there. The
good road also makes it possible
to market the farm produce more
easily and cheaply, and at all
times of the year.
These things result in the good
road making the land worth more.
The good road is to the farm what
the railroad is to the city.

with declarations that it is a "test"

If so, the unwritten law has re
ceived a new and indefinite en
largement. The original draft of
that peculiar incursion upon juris
prudence was that a father whose
family ties had been violated, was
justified in avenging the wrong by
murder. But in this case a new
form is that a woman who has
been misled has the right to kill
her betrayer, not on account of the
original offense, but because he
threatened to expose her past to
the man who seeks her hand in
If this expansion of law, which
being unwritten, can be constued
to suit each individual need, is
tolerated, there is no telling where
the elastic limit may be reached.
TRAINING GIRLS FORWIVES
A Washington preacher advocates
the establishment of a school for
training wives. The best school
for a girl to become a good wife
is a good home, with a good moth
er. The great trouble is, there
are so many mothers who don't
care about training their daughters
for housekeeping. They want to
make ladies of them, and have
them sit in the parlor crocheting,
playing the piano and reading so
Now the influence of a good
mother is such that when the time
comes for a daughter to make her
own home she will cook all right
and be able to attend to all the de
tails of her home. It is the in
different and foolish mothers who
make poor house-keepers of their
girls, and bring upon them matri
monial hazards. There is a won
derful preservative in the spirit of
a home, and it has saved from mis
fortune and ruin many a boy and
Where these influences are lack

will be nothing that will take the'
place of a sensible mother.

There is, however, another side
to the story. The solitary Social
ist in Congress, Berger, of the
Milwaukee district, was defeated
by a fusion nominee. The only
Socialist in the Pennsylvania legis
lature was retired from public life.
The Socialist mayor of Schenec
tady was rejected at the polls. Ex
cept for the greatly increased vote
for their presidential candidate
the party seems to have -nothings
to offset these losses.
Doubtless the Socialist propa
ganda is gaining converts from year
to year As long as the party re
mains a minority organization,
however, it stands in constant per
il of defeat whenever its oppon
ents choose to combine against it.
So far, the Socialist party has been
useful only as a means of effective
protest when both the major par
ties override public sentiment and
show themselves amenable to no
other kind of discipline.

R. J. McKELVEY,
A report reached this city the fore
part of the week to the effect that
"Dutch" Menzel, who played ball
with the local team during the past
two years, died at his home in Min
nesota. We learn that the report
was verified, but have been unable
to learn the cause of his demise.
"Dutch" won the friendship of a
great many Bowbells people while
here, and news of his death was a
great shock to us all who did not
even know that he was ill.
H. A. Hanson and wife of Pow

moving to this city in a week or

During the campaign Socialists
said they hoped to poll 1,000,000
votes for their presidential candi
date. Complete figures are not
yet available, but apparently the
traditional third party failed of
this expectation. However, their
vote was increased by some hun
dreds of thousands over that of
four years ago and their showing
in that respect may be considered
satisfactory from a Socialist stand
Tr iiv-inn A Mcrm
Thanksgiving Day is drawing
near again,- and a remark that one
has heard frequently this fall is:
that everyone ought to turn out this
year to a Thanksgiving service.
Well! we shall see. An opportuni
ty is to be given the citizens of Bow
bells to attend a Thanksgiving ser
vice in the Presbyterian church
next Thursday at 11 o'clock A. M.
This is not to be a Presbyterian
service, but a citizen's service with
out any denominational tag what
ever and the doors are thrown open
to every citizen. It is befitting
that every citizen should reveren
tly observe this national anniver
sary. If the Puritan Fathers felt
constrained to hold a Thanksgiv
ing Service for the first harvest
they reaped in this land there ought
to be a greater constraint upon its
to do so. Our harvests are always
better than ever theirs were, oui
fortunes and circumstances are
much in advance of what theirs
were. Every man whether a far
mer or not ought to be thankful
for the harvest that has been gath
ered this year for we all depend
upon the success of the crops.
Every man as he reviews the past
year, no matter how' hard his luck
has been, discovers he has much to
be grateful for.
At this service there will he a
Thanksgiving offering. The ob
ject of the service is not to make
money. Far from it. l?ut if any
one ffeels like showing their^thank
fulness in a practical way an op
portunity will be offered them to do
so. The railways, the stores, the
banks and all other businesses are
feeling the benefits of the big crops
this year but there is no sign of
any benefit coming to the church
yet, and money is required t%, car
ry on religious work as w. II as any
other work. Last spring we had
to do some necessary repairs to
the church, the interior was also
cleaned and painted. The exter
ior now needs a coat of paint as ev
ery one can see for themselves.
The reason it does not get it is that
we have no money. It will be a
shame if the church has to go an
other year without being painted
in a year of such good crops as
this. Any Thanksgiving gifts we
may receive will be devoted to the
repairs of the church property.
Let all the citizens assemble to
gether for-an hours Thanksgiving
service on Thanksgiving Day, and
show that Bowbells is not the God
less place that some people would
try to make it out to be.
There will also be a Thanks
ing service in he Westminister
church at night at 8 o'clock.
