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

Some fishermen never catch

Some kiddies get by without

Some folks can get by without

Some golfers play well with

Some lassies keep sweet with

Some Scotchmen dress well

Some corns will not hurt

But darn few businesses can

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.

ITS BENEFITS UNIVERSAL.
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.
The scoring was as follows:
