A GEKEKOUSI.Y impulsed and- emi
nently distinguished journalist kindly
intercedes thus : "It is common for
small great men to speak with con
tempt of the local newspaper. In
that they imitate greater men in
speaking of-greater journals which
offend by manly criticism ; but the
village newspaper makes more great
men out of less material more bricks
without straw-than any other factor in
politics and is the one ladder on wnich
men climb to local distinction as the
beginning1 of wider fame. Local
weeklies nave now extended from the
country towns into most of the thrifty
villages and the advent of a local
newspaper has always dated the in
creased thrift of the community. The
local newspaper is the life of the lo
cality ; And the measure of its sup
port , as a rule , measures the advance
ment of the people. Begin the new
year by not only subscribing but pay
ing for your local newspapers , They
are the friends and helpmates of all
ALL thinking beings have been made
one for the other ; they owe patience one
toward another. The good man remem
bers that every rational being is his
kinsman. Marcus Aurelius.

because it seems trifling , nor neglect
