SMITH Publisher 12.00 per Year Advertising Rates on Request FarHim AilvrrtUlng Representative THE AMERICAN PRE3S ASSOCIATION In ovry town tlio sizo of Clayton there arc ono or two who seriously objool to reading anylhing ubout thonisolvcs or llioir notivitios in llic local papers. Don't blamo tliom for it is soltlom thai anytliiug can bo said in thoir favor. As a rula this kind of guy has a very ihigh opinion of huneolf, and is very much peoved when otliers fail to agree with hint; ho constantly has his noso' stuck into other peoples' business; his fer tile brain is constantly at work dy ing to bosmircli the character of tho other follow; while he would shrink before tho searchlight should it ho turned on him. Occasionally ono of llieso very same supposcd-io-bo cit izens feels it his plain duty to ad viso us just how to run our busi ness. As a matter of fact, thoir advice is received wilh a degree of interest, for it is interesting to study tho workings of their small minds; but it would be well if they could bo made to understand that no freckle-faced, hull-necked, glasá eyed, ivory-brained bully will ever succeed in intimidating this sheet. an impartial observer. His rotire- whilo under the present manage-unent from tho presidency marks, Much secrecy is hfing maintain (Hi about . a meeting of tho insurgent faotinn of the republicans held some whoro in Clayton, Monday of this week. Any member of the faction will tell you that the meeting was held, but wnen it cornos to finding out what . was done they closo up liko clams. In such circumstances one has to speculate, and we specu late that they met and denounced "old man Fiold"; rosolulcd very complimentary to themselves; ol' forcd up sincere supplications that tho jobs would fall in their baskets; and doubly and tsvico doubly de plored tho hideous fact that a prac tically unanimous clientele or Die Clayton post off'cc, regardless of politics and in tho interest nf effi ciency in public service and the good of the community at large, were petitioning the powers that bo to let our pool office and post mistross alone. This is only specula tion, based on deduction and expe rience, hut we'll bet a super-six against a roller skate that its aw fully neat" truth. Why such secre cy, gentlemen? Publish, your doings to the world, and then the world will he able to judge whether it favors your cause. Wring us a ro jwrt of tho doings, or give us an invite to the next junta and we wilt guarantee full publicity. You must have publicity; no political party can hopo to succeed without it. OTTO COMMUNITY WORKING "WILSON, THE MAN, WILL DIE" IJy Win. (i. McAdoo It is with hesitation Hint, I com ply wiUh your request for an ex pression of my views on Woodrow Wilson, becauso my intimate rela tionship may incline cynical or pre judiced minds to say that I am not inent. That is all. COXKLIGTING THOUGHTS 1'rosidont Harding in his message io congress whs emphatic in scrap ping tho League of Nations under its present form and authorship. How ever, in almost the same breath lie said: "Wo are ready to co-operate willi other nations who approximate disarmament, but merest prudence forbids lhat we tnsnrm alpne." In other words it is plain that the president is willing to enter into an agreement with the other nations of the world to disarm anil perfect a lasting peace; but he wants this 'agreement, to he branded "republi can" and himself and Hie senatorial oligarchy to be given due credit. Such is politic, even as it is prac liced in Hie smallest precincts. .Years will roll by, the republican lenders will exhaust their every ef fort to discredit, a noble man-, and Uiey will pass, hut the principles and doctrines und idealism of Wood row Wilson will live forever. Discard That Mail-Di-drr "Cat." In every community, and ibis part of tho world is no except inn. Hiere are those who beliew that their lo cal merchants nre lujihway robber openilitig under the proteclion of the law. In some few towns this may be true: but 1 lie patrons of Clayton merchants have no kick coining atyl almujil congratulate themselves Hint they are receiving the very best, service.. The writer was in Dallas, Ft. Worth and other Texas towns a few weeks ago, and by close observation lie was con vinced dial, the merchant'' of Clay ton are offering better values for the prices asked than any town in (he country. One of our subscribers who lives six hundrefl miles from cinymu. told us mat lie could save however, an epoch of such pro found significance that I can not rosist tin! temptation tp say a few words about one phase, of his ca reer. I do not agree with those who hastily and inconsiderately adjudge the president's work at Hie peace conference a failure. Whatever may be Hie imperfections of Hie treaty from a political or economic stand point Woodrow Wilson did not fail. The outstanding thing for which ho fought, the tilings that trans cends political and economic, con siderations, is the permanent peace of tho world. Unless Ibis is secur ed all else is failure; willtopt this, the sublimost hope of Immunity' is sunk in the black abyss; without this all political and economic ad justments are unstable and sooner or later will disappear.. Woodrow Wilson laid the foun dation of world peace and a new order in tho Versailles treaiy. 'Iliis is the supreme need of civilization: this is his greatest work. The fact that the crowning structure has not yet reached completion, that it hns halted by the selfishness of design ing politicians and the greed of ma Icrialislic national interest.-!, has neither impaired nor destroyed those foundations. The tides of reaction will ignominiously exhaust, them selves and the work of Woodrow Wilson will emerge unscathed and stand like Hie eternal rocks as the suport of a new and heller order of vi4iic.il pence and justice will be the keystone. This is Woodrow Wilson's match less contribution to his time, (real and noble as have been his other uuparallcil achievements in the fields of política, economics and Id lers, this is his. enduring monument. He has put a new star in the .Tmer- ilcan nag like the star of Hetlile lliom with its ulornal mossags of 1 ' 1 ...in 1 , X. ..inn.,.. I.v .. ..m,.- I.I. Ml 1, .ir, n n.

Ion who advertise in The News, call ing attention In the price asked for a pair of fninous shoes advertised in The News and the price he was asked to pay for the same shoes in his town. The difference was about six dollars in favor of Clnylon. Now, if people who livo at n dis tance from Clayton can appreciate lhe advertisements which appear in this paper, it is lime for the people of Clayton and vicinity to discard their mail-order catalogue and spend thoir money closer home. Community pride is ono of the es sentials in building a subslaiititil community. Clnylon can not grow and prosper without Ilia support and inlluence of the good pooplc who live in the rural communities nearby. These same good loyal oit i.ens can not hope to see their re spective communities grow and prosper without adding tn Uw wealth and happiness of 'Clayton. Together we can build a city at Clayton, and a Clnytn grow in wealth, so will every farm in this part fit the stale receive its pro portionate share in tutM'tHieing val lina. Discard the mail-order "cal." If you doubt the proximity of spring just cast your oye at the robin, the painter and tfw paper liangcr They are the birds that never fail. The Olio Camp, Woodinon of Uio World, is always today to render assistance to its members and to Ihoso who are not members in lime of need. Wo are always ready to show tho good spirit of Woodcraft in brotherly Iovo for another; and as ono of our most activo and true brothers in Woodcraft and a highly respected citizen of tho community, Sovoroign W. E. Sired, having suf fered the ntisforlune of sickness in his family in tho case of Miss Ethel Ililchoy. who took very ill about Uie 8th of March and was rushed to the hospital for closo treatment and a surlous operalion; but after a hard strugglo for lifo the comunily is glad to know of Miss Ethel's condi tion boing in her favor, and we hopo now she will soon be at home again Willi his misfortune, as with all others, of course, Sov. Street got behind wilh his work, so tho Woodmen taking the llrst stop to render assistance, invited the com munity at large to meet and give a day's work. Tho day was set for March 30th, but the weather being so cold it was impossible to work in tho field,, wo did not meet. The 31st being a nlco day, word was sent out by Sov. Geo. W. Iteekner to all to meet for tho working. Many not getting the word failed lo come; but at an early hour in the morning there wore seventeen hands with lister? and harrows in tho field all working under the management of Sov. Dccknor. At tho noon hour all were notified to prepare for dinner. and it is, contended by all the hands that tins was the best dinner ever prepared. For Ibis wo give credit to Musdamcs Street, McCook, Hen derson, UcCkner and Donley. After tho day's work it was esti mated that wo had listed ninety-two acres of land, and aro happy in the assurance that this will put our Soveroign up where lie can go on with his work, if he has no other misfortunes. This wo hope will not happen Anyone thinking that we are lacking tho proper spirit and Iovo for one 'another, should visit Olio and see for lliemsehl's. We have the name of being the best and most progressive coinunity in the county, and mean to niaintainit; lint wo have no object in for other communities to try to wrest the name from us it would help their community for them lo try to do so and they would soon realize thai they had undertaken some job. If ynu want the Inyo and co-operation of your neighborhood anil hold your self worthy, iriOve into the Olio community. Kulcr of the Sea Willi it America will lead the van guard of humanity and civilization to a new day of Jiuman brotherhood and world order. This will not come immediately? hut it will come inev itably in the slow and suro process es of time. Woodrow Wilson, tho man. will die: hut Woodrow Wilson, the apos tle of pence, will livo forever. Out of his sacrifice and suffering borne with admirable dignity and sublimo courage the good he has sought to do for mankind will como lo a noble fruition and receive a rplendid though perhaps bolaled recognition. In his martyrdom there is not de feat (here is triumph! History will do him justice. Ho ean await its verdict with serenity.
