Blook, Tuesday forenoon when Chief of
Police MoCracken and George Nipper
were Hashing oat tbe sewer crossing

been inserted in the sewer and the
water turned on full force. Tbe hose

Editor Aldrich Gives Hit VleWi Coftcernliif
Their Particular Field
Brookings, S. D., Jane 26.—"The
speoial function of the weekly news*
paper is not to ohroniole the news of
the outside world, but rather to con
cern itself with the folk* we know and
the folks our subscribers know, and
about our subscribers themselves", said
1. D. Aldriob, editor 0i the Big Stone
Headlight, in an address before the
Country Life Conference at the State
College on Saturday. "The farmer no
longer depends on his weekly paper for
his outlook npon the world's activities.
This information he gets in an ava
lanche of daily papers that oome by
rural delivery.
"It is human interest" he oontinned
"that has preserved and that will pre
serve the existence of any oountry
newspaper whioh is worth saving. It
is for us publishers to Btop trying to
cover all oreation and to do a little in
tensive cultivation of oar own fields*
Now some people feel, or assume to
feel, a lofty indifference about seeing
their names in print, and some affeot a
reluctance to having any personal
mention made of themselves,-perhape
beoause they suspect the editor is a
man of so sublime a mind that he him
self is above suoh tr'.vlalitlee. Let me
tell you a professional seoret taught
me by many years of association with
newspaper men of various degrees. It
is this: There is no man on earth who S
will stretoh his neok any farther to see
his name in priut than a newspaper I
Mr. Aldrich expressed a firm oon
viotlon that tbe weekly newspaper gets
close to the heart of the pnbiio beoause
it deals with people,-beoause it oarriee
flesh and blood interest about men,
women aud ohildren well known to its
readers. A weekly paper, he believes,
will succeed in whatever measure it
recognizes and follows that idea. To
the man away from home, the weekly I
newspaper from the old town is the one
that is first opened and read on a Fri
day or Saturday morning. Everything
else, from the Mexican war, the
Tolls Bill, to other national polltioe or
business must wait upon the news
from home. As Mr. Aldrioh expressed
it: ij
What be wants to read first, is what
the weekly paper says about tbe folks
at home, the people he knows,-if Grand
ma Peters' rheumatism is better, and
bow muob the Ladies Aid made at the
supper and if the Hendereon girl and
that gawky Jim Barns are married yet I
or what Cy llendrioks got for his oolt.
He may not know tbe oolt. but ha
knows Cy, and he oan visualize the
dioker between him and Lam Baker in
a manner that 1b almost as good as a
visit baok home. As he sits there with
the little creased ank rumpled eheet In
ii is hand, tbe soent of the lilacs oomee
again to his nostrils, the olatter of the
sapper dishes in tbe old kitchen eink
reaches his ears, and once more he eits
on the baok doorstep in the twilight
washing a boy's brown feet, oarefuly
avoiding tbe stone braisee of ths day,
and then sidles up Btairs to bed in tha
hope that the scrutinizing aye of
mother may not notioe the rather
obvious omissions in thle poet-prandial
It is this personal element in the
weekly paper, aooording to fiditor Ald
rioh. which may enable it to be a power
ful influenoe in rural improvement.
Let vour weekly paper be a common
and oentral plaoe for the expreeelon of
looal business and soolal neede. Make
it tbe paper of tbe people, for the
people, Co-operation between the
editor and tbe people may do muoh to
promote better standards of rural Ufa
and a more progressive rural spirit.
The weekly paper may well be the!
clearing-house of looal knowledge for\
improved house-keeping and home
making, better farming, progressive
business methods, and general uplift.
Tbe encouragement of looal festivities
is one of the special functions and
duties of the country editor. The!
editing of a good, clean weekly paper le
no small task and is worthy of the best
efforts of a high minded oltlzen.
