In order that our printers might take a few days off we decided to issue only four pages this week: hence the l ack of the usual amount of news mat ter and advertisements. There is much local news that we cannot give this week and some advertisements that we did not have space for. We believe that under the circumstances our patrons will indulge us this much for one week. Capt. W. M. Winters Dead. Our people have been deeply grieved er the death of Capt. W. M.
