Speaking of what a newspaper does
for its community, a late prominent
man said: "Each year every local paper
gives from 8500 to 85,000 in free lines
for the benefit of the community where
it is located. No other agency can or
will do this. The editor in proportion
to his means does more for his own
town than any other man. He ought to
be supported, not because you happen
to like him, or happen to admire his
writings, but because a local paper is
the best investment a community can
make. Today the editors of local pa
pers do more work for less pay than
any men on earth. Patronize your lo
cal paper, not as a charity, but as an

As an evidence of Uncle Sam's punc
tiliousness in debt paying a case came
to our attention a few days ago. When
Capt. Lucas was mustered out of the
service, he was in such haste to get
home to a sick wife, that he did not
stop to secure transportation to his
home. To have done so would have
been a delay of one day. He left on
the first train available, paying his own
way. A few months ago he was noti
fied that a balance was due him and if
he would execute certain papers sent,
the amount would be paid. This he
did and a few weeks later a draft came
for §80.65 in payment of the bill. Thir
ty-eight years had gone by since the
debt was due, and now it is paid. The
strange part is Capt. did not know his
Uncle owed him a cent. He says Un

"Weary Willie Walker."
An unusually strong tramp play is
what the opera house management
promises next week.
Well, there has been some unusually
weak ones and a strong one will cer
tainly be a relief, and judging by what
is said by the press elsewhere of
"Weary Willie Walker," the coming
attraction, it is all that is promised by
Manager Richer, or as an Irish man
ager of a theatre east 6aid, "If this is
the kind of a play you like, this is just
the play that will suit you."
But to be a little more explicit we
will say that from all along the line,
where the company has been seen, only
the highest press mention has been
made and all seem to agree that it is
the liveliest, brightest and funniest
play of this or for many a season.
