The drawers to the desk were open and papers strewn around promiscuously, everything was upside down showing that the prowlers had made a close search for valuables. They had entered the building Sun day night by crawling into the wheat bin and from there into the room.

The Detroit Tribune, one of the oid- est, most reliable and best newspapers in Detroit, gives the country editors a great puff, those of us who are too poor to have Christmas pudding and other holiday luxuries, may get some consolation out of the fact that we are first rate fellows. A city editor must hsve a certain wrt of ability. He must know in stinctively how to handle news to the taste of his readers,, but let him go untrained into the rural field and he finds himself in deep waters. It is the country editor of level head and deep Insight who gets on in the world. He is the universal authority, the univer sal friend, and he gets value received for every good deed. His influence is far-reaching in proportion to his keenness of insight and his adaptabil ity to his work. If he has the sympa thy and good-will of all the people in his district, it is because he has earn ed and deserved them and they are capital stock as long as he is able to hold fast to them. The influence oi the country editor and his publication is immeasurabl- great and always must be in this land of reading people for he is close to the people. Com pi I m en try Word. F. A.
