It should be the duty therefore of its citizens, its business men and manufacturing establishments to assist the newspaper and encourage it in a substantial way by giving it the business they have to be done in its line of work. No newspaper could live on the 'best wishes" atid commendations of its friends or of "here's hoping you'll prosper," to make it ellective the com mendations must be accompanied by cash or a collateral that can be turned into cash. The U -inner is a weekly newspaper. The Growing Brotherhood The Portland Review in giving a few after thoughts on the recent homecom ing festival held there, says: "Among the many admirable features of the great homecoming festival the most remarkable, in many resects, and in every way the most grateful and encouraging, was the bit of ministerial courtesy that was extended to the Uev. T. U. Gregory of New York, onetime pastor of the Universalist church, by the Rev. C I. Taylor, pastor of the Congregational church. By invitation of Uev. Taylor Uev. Gregory occupied the pulpit of the Congregational church on Sunday morning, preaching most acceptably to a congregation that completely filled the edifice. To those who remember the religious situation when Mr. Gregory began his ministry in Portland 35 years ago the fact Just stated has a profound signif icance. Thirty-four years ago the cour tesy implied in Mr. Taylor's invitation would have been impossible. At that time the different ministers of the village were lighting each other harder than they were lighting' the alevil and the other common enemies of mankind. Sectarianism ran high. Denominationalisra was rampant. The spirit of brotherhood crouched in the remote background, while schism and spite held their undisputed sway be tween me lootiignts. Now all is changed, and changed lor the better. Ihe spirit of good will is growing. Ueligion is losing may be Bam to nave practically lost its old lime bigotry and spite. The 'sweet ness and light' of the One the little children loved, and the poor, and the , ck,-.l the sorrowing, and the sinful heard gladly' are entering into the i "nds and hearts of men universally, f i in the larger sympathies of thednv ' it now is jjeople are forgetting the rrowness of the past." W. C. T. U. Notes On the occasion of a recent presenta .on of a flag to the gymnasium at Cassel hraperor V illiam made a brief address to the students of the senior class especially advising them against beer drinking. He referred to the traditional drinking custom of the Ger man people and declared that no oth- er evil in his empire had brought great er harm or had caused more wide spread suffering and loss. He appealed to the students and to all the young men 01 oermany to become partici panis in someming mat would give greater glory to their country and more satisfaction and value to them selves than the disgraceful old custom that never should have existed, of try ing to create new records for the amount of beer they could swallow. No man in public or private life in any country on me giooe sianus ai mis time more oppossed to the saloons and their pur poses and especially to beer drinking man does h,mperor William of Ger many.

He got in over his depth and was drowning when Ben Wilbur, who was driving past, pulled him out. Mr. Middleton did not forget the event and a few days ago mailed a New York draft of goodly proportion to his rescuer, at the same time assuring him that more would follow and that as long as he and his family lived they should not want. Ben Wilbur drove stage through this place from Greenville to Ionia more than fifty years ago when Main street was mud and mire covered with a log corduroy.

Mr. Alexander is putting the other side of the store in shape for his shoe store and will have itin fine shape when he gets the work completed. HAD A DEFICIT But Portland's Common Council Took Care Of It With No Kicking The council voted an additional $125, at last week's meeting, says the Port land Ueview totakecareof a deficiency in the funds for home-coming exenses, making Jio which the council con tributed in cash and not taking into account the cost of cleaning up streets before and after the festivities. These appropriations have leen made because of the public nature of the allair and no criticism of the council's course has been heard. A total of about fsOO. was expended oy me various committees, fzib going for publicity purposes. The success of the allair show s this money to have been well sjient.
