THE DICKENSON COUNTY HERALD VOL. 1. NO. 29. CLINTWOOD, DICKENSON COUNTY, VIRGINIA, THURSDAY, JULY 28, 1927. $1.50 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE PRATER LOCALS. Dear Editor:- I have read and reread the local news of Haysi appearing in the Herald of July 14th. 1927-with which some party at Haysi seems to be of fended, as appears in the issue of July 21, 1927. Referring to the Haysi locals I of July 14th. 1927, wiH say that I do not find any (Election to them as they come from a party who seem to believe in a hell and a God, and that they do not desire to deceive the preacher. If it is true that people flock to hear a new preacher, and refuse to hear the old true, tried and loyal preacher of old, who sticks to the Bible and the Doctrine of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, it does show some signs of hypocrisy. If nothing else, it looks as though they are deciev ing the preacher by making him believe that they are a God lov ing, God fearing, God worship ing and Church going people. As to the primary teacher, we know nothing about- but sup pose the patrons of the Haysi school knows whether the writ er told the truth or not, and if ' he, or she, did not it is the worst t° him, or herself. The “key note” was sounded when the writer asserted that the voters of Haysi had made up their minds to elect a J. P this coming fall who believes there is a hell and a God. We congratulate^ the Haysi voters on their resolutions. “Of all the creatures that inhabit highland, marsh or dell, the most Godless is the creature that believes there is no hell.” The man who preaches, teach es, advocates and argues there is no hell or God is a proselyte, who compasses both land and sea t° make an individual two fold more the child of hell than they are themselves. So I hope the good citizens of Haysi are too well versed in the Bible to be so deceived. The person who does not Re live there is a hell or God is an individual who does not regard anything they do as evil. Oaths to them are not binding because they have no God to call upon to help them tell the truth. As sault, murder, robery or arson are no sin to them, because they have no God to account to or future punishment to fear. If they can escape the penal laws of the land they will do any thing. I am glad we have a good Christian Judge who knows there is a hell and a God who, also, believes in future reward and punishment, one who loves and serves God, and is a well wisher to religion and Christ ianity. The people of Haysi or any other county or state are wor thy |>f high complimefnts and congratulations when they make a firm stand against peo ple who believe, teach or advo cate that there is no hell or God, that there is no future re ward for the righteous nor fut ure punishment for the wicked. Trusting faithfully in the word of God and the command ments of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sincerely yours to serve. J. C- Raines. HOMETOWNIETS. There are two kinds of peo ple in Clintwood. Those who say “That's lawful,’’ and those who exclaim “That’s awful!” Both may be right. It all de pends on the point of view. .Keep to the right side of the road when driving, and on the right side of the fence on all other occasions, especially with regard to issues that affect the progress of Clintwood and com munity r* sje $ $ ije H* sfc sjs Some fishermen never catch shads. Some kiddies get by without dads. Some folks can get by without fads. Some golfers play well with out cads. Some lassies keep sweet with out lads. Some Scotchmen dress well without plaids. Some corns will not hurt much without pads. But darn few businesses can succeed without ADS! YOUR TOWN AND YOU. Your town boosts vou- Why not do as well by the town as it does by you? No citizen is so powerful, none so humble, but what the town is an aid to him in some way or other. The food that he eats, the clothes he wears, the recreation and amusement that he enjoys all originate in the town, be cause the money with which they are procured is made there When a fellow boosts his own town he does not stop there. He is performing an act that im proves his own condition, for every good word and every good deed has its elevating in fluence. A few people are always home town boosters. They accomplish much in the way of community betterment, and this improves the condition of not only them selves, but also of those who do no boosting at all. If every citizen would consti tute himself a home town boost er the result collectively would be many times as great, and op portunities for self improve ment would be more numerous. Think it over in your odd mom ents. Then get into the boost wagon and hit the pace. Darwin News, Mrs. Dixen Webb of Jenkins.

Many people have not learned to look upon advertising in the light of the realistic rhymester of an olden time who penned this famous verse on advertis ing: Go forth in haste; with bills and paste Proclaim, to all creation, That men are wise who adver tise In every generation. In large *part the public re gards advertising as being of possible advantage to the adver tfser for which the consumer pays, and yet the facts prove otherwise. Time and again has it been shown that well judged properly conducted and persist ent advertising inures to the benefit not only of the person who attracts attention to hrfs wares in this manner, but also of the-community. After interviewing large num bcrs of distributers as to the economic effects of advertising a committee of the national die tribution conference reports: “Broadly speaking, it would seem that where the advertis ing creates an increased de mand for products of a certain class, a wider distribution of such products-in other words, makes new business, bringing about lessened distribution costs and lessened production costs owing to increased de mand-there can be no doubt as to the value of such advertising, not merely to the concerns that pav for it but also to the public that consumes the goods.” “Bills and paste” have given way to newspapers and maga zines and those “who advertise” are not only wise but altruistic and philanthropic, for by help ing themselves they are helping others. MILLIONS FOR ROADS. Al'ter roads, airports; but first — roads. This seems to be America’s slogan just now. It is interesting to note what some of the states are spending and planning to spend to make it easier for the motorist to get from one place to another. From sources of authority we learn that: ■Illinois has a budget of $36, 000,000 for primary roads and $70,000,000 for its entire road system; 5966 miles of complet ed hard roads and 1947 miles of grading. Kansas since 1921 has spent the sum of $12,000,000 for bridges alone. The county roads generally, tho not all graded to standard, are wide and well kept, and are in good condition during dry weather. Maryland has the distinction of being the first state to have its system placed under state control for both construction and maintenance. This system was started back in the year of 1908. New Jersey’s people will pre sent to the next Legislature a program of improvements to cover approximately 1900 miles extending over a period of twelve years at a cost of $60. 000,000 Virginia will spend nearly $10,000,000 for good roads this year. Approximately eight-ten ths of this money will be spent on main highways, and two tenths for feeder roads. West Virginia’s legislature and governor have made it pos vsible to reissue $15,000,000 worth of bonds to carry out the state’s highway program. Wisconsin’s state highway commission has an estimated budget for 1927 of more than $24,000,000. Plans for the year include 374 miles of paving. The state now has about 2070 miles of pavement. Nearly all other parts of the country are wide-awake. Roads or ways of travel, whether by vehicle, ship, rail or air, go hand in hand with higher civilization. Roads are prime necessity to commerce. Road building gives employment to thousands of men and completes the cycle of sevice. CANEY BEATS CLINTWOOD. Caney, the erstwhile celarites sprang- a surprise Sunday af ternoon at Clintwood by jump ing on Ira Short in the second inning, and aided by a blow up of the Clintwood team, scored eleven runs which was enough to win and tumble Clintwood in to the cellar with them. After the fatal second Clintwood’s defense tightened and Caney scored no more. In the sixth Clintwood staged a belated ral ly which netted them three runs, and they scored three more in the seventh and eighth. For Clintwood “Pud” Short did splendid work in the field and banged out a home run. Dallas Mullins, after the hectic inning, played brilliantly. For Caney the pitching of “Lefty” Thomasson featured The whole team showed vast im provement over their last ap pearance at Clintwood, showing plenty of hitting ability, good fielding and' a world of pep.
