One week starting Monday, Aug. 20 Fair week FAVORITE nimn rcorav a The Show You All Like ... -- -" " ... , 1 ' - ; MISS MADGE KINSEY ASHCRAFT HANDS ANTAGONIST ONE Referring to a paragraph In the Coldwater paper two weeks ago (the lateness of our answer is due to the fact that we were unable to secure a copy of the paper in our neighbor hood,) we cite the paragraph as sample of the slush that the Coldwa ter paper has been dishing out to its readers ever since the rontroversy be tween certain lawless citizens of Coldwater, and the better element of soriety, started a few weeks ago. If thero are any more or bigger liars than Phillipps in Mercer County they haven't gone into training yet The Chronice's defiant attitude to ward the organized Grange of the couni.y indicates that the business people uphold the editor. And this Is the regard that the farfers who have teen spending thousands of dol lars with Coldwater business men God help a town that considers a man like Phillipps a representative citi zen. The petition signed by nearly all of the business men of Coldwater asking the Prosecutor to not do his duty and that Codwater wanted to go on ding the things prescribed, that says they shall not do, is about time for law abiding citizens to take a hand and see that the law Is enforc ed, if Coldwater wants to put up a wall around itsef and hold high-jinks thertin, in defiance of law and public opinion, citizens outside are unwill ing to see them disgrace themselves and surrolnding country. All that any criminal wants Is to be let alone. All Phillipps hants is to be left alone, and Sabbath discretion go on unmo lested. Coldwater has always been about the last town in the County to heed the Sunday closing laws and only a few years ago the saloons were run wide open on Sunday until public opinion got so strong an dthe laws so stringent that they were forced to yield, but they made an awful howl iabout being persecuted. This busi ness will be seen through and the .sooner you get the facts under the kin of .your ivory dome the better it will be for your constituents. ' If Coldwater don't want the- busi ness ot hunderds of farmers in their (trade territory as voiced by their ed Itor Phillipps, why we can do only odr best to accomodate them. Cold- water needs an editor who has some claim on merit. Some of Coldwater's business men are anxious for the growth of the town. Get an editor that is a pro gressive man and watch results. Your paper is a weak spot in your development. O. S. ASHCRAFT. Kinsey Komedy Kompany here all next week. PILES FISTULA DISEASES OF THE RECTUM Or.

FIRST STEP TAKEf TO LOWER PRICES Giant Grain Corporation Create By Government. HAS CAPITAL OF $50,000,000 Will Conduct Government Wheat Pur chases and Sales and Also May Serve aa Broker For the Milling terests Three Committees Ap pointed by the President to Carry on the Work. Washington, Aug. 16. The food ad ministration officially announced t'ae creation of a grain corporation with $50,000,000 capital to conduct govern ment wheat purchases and sales. To carry on the gigantic work the president appointed three committees the wheat purchasing division, the price fixing board, the United States millers' committee and those who wll' conduct the buying at the different terminal points In the country. This corporation will buy and sell wheat, contract for the milling of flour, and keep available both to tie people of the United States and our allies supplies of wheat and flour at fair prices. The grain corporation will handle the actual buying and selling of wheat and flour for the government, along Unes that will equalize supply, sta bilize prices and Insure the fatres possible treatment for all concerned The magnitude of the work wlihm this corporation will handle Is InAl cated In the statement by Herbert Hoover that the food administration Is prepared "to take the whole bar vest, If necessary." Julius Barnes of Duluth, Minn., was named by President Wilson to head tie corporation. He will occupy the position as president of the wheat purchasing division. Herbert Hoover was named as chairman. The wheat price fixing commutes, appointed by the president, includes Harry A. Garfield, Williams college, chairman, and L. J. Tabor, Ohio state grange master, Barnesville, O. James F. Bell, Minneapolis, Is chair man of the millers' committee. Mark M. Mannel, Toledo, is a member. The wheat corporation will handle all allied grald purchases and will do the buying for the American govern- ment. If found advisable tt also wil; serve as broker for the milling Inter ests, purchasing wheat for the flour mills to keep the market steady. The allies will be required to purchase flour instead of wheat on tTae theory that manufacturing costs will be re duced and American Industry encour aged. Authority to license grain elevators and milling concerns was given for mally to the food administration in a proclamation by President Wilson. Mr. Hoover hopes operation of the li censing system will make unneces sary any extensive government pur chases of wheat except for the gov ernment itself and for the allies. Ho believes a stable export price and proper supervision of exchange deal ings will do more than anything else to keep prices on a constant level. .

So the whole world has th same trouble. FINE BOUQUET HANDED GELINA BUSINESS MEN (Continued from First Papa) obligations to give their better pa tronage; for the Chautauqua has brought about because of this hearty coooratiin a better spirit towards our own business men of Celina. Sever al business men of Celina gave much assitanco in arranging for the Chau tauqua and even pledged themselves to make good any financial shortage that might result. This however was not deeded for the Chautauqua clos ed with a small surplus, but the In teredt of the business men and such promises were a wonderful uplift and encouragement, and show to the rur al people that our business men are mighty good fellows when we find them out, and there Is n0 better way to find our busness men out than to have a rural Chautauqua or some thing of the kind and let them come out and mingle with us a little. Af ter having hal this experience with the 1'Usiness men the author of this article would like to tell every farm er to burn Is Sears. Roebuck, or Montgomery-Ward catalogues, and spend every cent in Celina; at least that's the way the writer feels to wards the men of Celina, for nearly all except a few co-operated In our rural undertaking the same as if it were a town undertaking, and the writer will be glad to tell any inter ested persons who. the opposing, bus iness men were. Better things are coming for Celina when Celina will help to have better things for the country. REV. F. H. SNAVELY. Old Soldiers' Day, Wednesday.
