Forth SPRING A WONDERFUL BUSINESS Is the Lord & Thomti Advertising Agency, the Head of Which Retired Feb'y let. Possiblv there is no line of industry in the United Stutes that hug grown in such proportion In recent years as that of general advertising, which includes publicity in newspapers and magazines and outdoor display adver tising, and through its tremendous force the entire basis of modern mer chandising has ben revolutionized. The Chicago papers of the current week devote much space and time to the wonderful growth of the adver tising business as a whole, and that of Lord & Thomas in particular, owing to the retirement of D. M. Lord, the senior member of the tirm, who leaves active business life with a rich com petence. A. L. Thomas, who has had active management of the firm for some years past, succeeds to t fie presidency. C. B. Erwin, the new vice-president, has been connected with the company for 20 years and is therefore a veteran in the field: associated with him and Mr. Thomas is Mr. A. D. Lasker, the sec retary and treasurer. Thirty-five years of wide experience in handling the publicity of a large proportion of America's most success ful advertisers have fitted Lord & Tliimms to give most judicious and profitable service to enterprising bus iness firms in every line. The main offices of Lord & Thomas are in the Trude Building, Chicago,' and its EasternJBraneh is in the Am-1 erican Tract Society Building, Ntw York. The Most Fatal Disease. Kidney complaint'kills more people than any other disease. This is due to the'fact that it is so insidious it gets a?good hold on the system before it is recognized.

Doe the Extreme Cold Weather Which We are Indulging In Have Any Bearing on Next Summer Fruit Harvest? This is a question which is worrying the farmers and horticulturist, not only in this county but throughout the whole state. During the past six weeks the mercury has readied levels which under ordinary conditions would most assuredly prove fatal to all the fruit budt with the possible exception of the most hardy varieties. The one hopeful feature Is the fact that there have Lzn no thaws and therefore practically no sap in the trees whi e the roots have been amply protected with a covering of snow from two to four feet in thickness which has kept the frost out ..f the ground. On this account some of our fruit growers feel quite confident that the trees have not been seriously injured and that there will be at least a portn o of a fruit crop next season. KEEP FIRE-HYDRANTS CLEAR. The Herald is in receipt of the fol lowing timely communication from one of the village firemen: "Fortunately for all concerned the residents of East Jordan have been verv Lee from fires during this season Of cold weather. The old rulestill re mains true that 'An ounce of preven tion is worth a pound of cure.' ihere is one thing tint the residents of the village can do that will materially help the firemen in the preservation of property In case of fire, and that is to keep the snow shoveled from around the hydrants near the proper y. This is a small thing in itself and wi require but little effort on the part of the citizens, but it may be of great hulp Id case of lire. Who knows but what your home may be the, first one to need our services, and a minute saved in netting water may mean the saving of valuable property. Duiing the past week the hydrants have all been uncovered by the firemen; will the citizens kindiy sect) it that they remain so during the balance of the winter?') Common Council.

An Editorial Change. With this issue weJav down the ed itorial pen resigning in favor of Mr. G. Art bur Lisk, of Lapeer, who has purchased The Hkrald, taking pos session thuvfffeek. Mr. Lisk is awning man of energy and ability, being thor oughly conversant with all branches of the printing trade. For twelve years past he has been with the La peer Clarion, filling the position of foreman in the job department. We fee) assured that Mr. Lisk will continue to make The Herald a live local paper and merit the support of both the business men and citizens of the community. During the three years past in which The Herald has been under our guid ance 41 r relations with East Jordan's business men and people have been of the most pleasant and we will al ways cherish the brightest recollec tions of our editorial experience. We tak" pleasure in introducing Mr. Lisk to the public and hope that he will meet witli the full measure of suc c its, R. L Lorraine. This week's issue of The Herald be gins a new era in the life of this pa) er, its former editor, and your humble servant. In taking charge, we found that Mr. R. L. Lorraine had establish ed a well-to-do country weekly. Ite pa ires are full of local advertising, which not only speakswell of the business men, but also the ability of Mr. Lorraine to brfng it up to its pres ent good standard. In going over the subscription list, we found it most enviable. Not only are the subscribers "paid-up"' but they represent the bet ter class of citizens as well. It is jur purpose to develop tl e plant still farther and give to the citizens of this village, and county a Newspaper and Job Office of more than passing merit. We solicit the patronage of both old and new cus tomers and feel sure that we can be of mutual ben tit. G. A. Lisk. Embarks in Journalism. (From tho Lapeer Co. Clarion). G.

Mr. Lisk began his work In this office, as a novice, twelve years ago. Although he has had nu merous opportunities to leave The Clarion, at apparently better financial advantage, he sized them alt up ju diciously and decided not to throw down a good and satisfactory thing for an uncertainty, np matter how flat tering In appearance. He is one of the steadiest, most reliable, well equipped in experience and ability, and all the year round dependable men we ever had the pleasure of hav ing on The Clarion. pay-roll. His level headed fuss in stick log "where he found pretty fair picking, has put him in possession of such capability afi ,he could not otherwise haye acquired, and such as will prove invaluable to him in undertaking business for hfin solf. We predict for him success, and feel sure that he will give the people of East Jordan sueii a newspaper as they have not heretofore even pic tured as pott I Die: at that point, O. E.
