LAKE, MIOH., FRIDAY JANUARY IB, 1899. New Series: Vol. 7, No 7 «==; -TJ 4- ^* V -6- -4 ■of -4 fo >~v t\ A local, exchange says that a girl of its town, who a few years ago used to dream of a Montmorency de Lancy, is now very contentedly preparing to wed a man by the name of Nick White- heifer. People who are nob satisfied with the town in which they live should either do something to better it or move oufi. Perhaps the latter would accomplish the former.—Gladwin Enterprise. A fellow who couldn't-spare a dollar a year for a newspaper, sent 50 two cent stamps to a down easb yankeetQ know how to raise beets. He got an answer to "bake hold of the tops and pulL»~Ex, The government has jusb published an old maid chart, which is expected to be ot tbe greatest value to unmarried women all over the country, It is a map, printed in colors, and shows at a glance just in what localities bachelors are the thickest, and in what region spinsters are most dense per square mile. There is a new song goin^r the rounds of the press and it runs as follows : "We don'b want to buy at your place, we don'b want to trade there anymore; you'll be sorry when you see us going in same other store. You can't sell us any stale goods, we have opened wide our eyes; wo don'b want to trade at your store, because you don'b advertise.—Ex. Girls are hereby warned nob to marry an editor. Ad exchange says such a being in a nearby town came near killing his wife one night recently. A servant awakened by the fracas, discovered the ink-slinger choking bis better half, lb transpired that a delinquent subscriber had paid ud his Mih-eriotion, ami he was grasping his wifu by the throat, thinking he had the money in his hands.—Gladwin Enterprise. The postofflce department at Washington has ruled that the writer has a right to regain possession of a letter providing he can prove to the satisfaction of the postmaster at the office from which lb was sen', that he was the one who wrote ib. Even if a letter has arrived ab its destination, aud before ib has been delivered to the person to whom it has been addressed, It aiaybe recalled through a telegram through the mailitig office. The reason assigned is ihat the United States in only the agent of the writer, while the letter is in transit. The decision is imporbanb to business men and to private individuals.—Ex. P. A. McCarthy (that's us} and Miss Nannie Fisher (that's more of us) were united in marriage Wednesday at 10 o'clock a. m, ab the home of the bride's mother, in this city, Rev. B. O. McQuesten, the beloved pasbor of both the young people, performed the ceremony. The ceremony was followed by a sumptous repast which we have only a faint recollection of. Some way events seem to crowd on each otherjusb then. And God has given us tbe best earthly thing within his gift, The joy in a sweet wife is too great to be described—too sacred to be spoken of, May that bright and happy face neyer be less bright and happy.— Ex. Tbe following has been sent us by a poor fellow who undoubbedly has bad his trouble lately: How few of us are really our own boss. The marrhd- men are subject to tbiir sweethearts, the old maids cater to their cats and poodles, while all of us bow to that weak thing called- public opinion. Vve come-to the world withoubour consent, we leaye it against our protest, aud while here kick ab everything that crosses our path, bub all to no purine. The old world wags on, nob caring whether we live or die, laugh or cry, shout or sing, nob caring a farthing why, till we turn up our toes and mav be to freeze or fry."—Ex. The other day when we were driving down behind our rhinocerous we came upon a man tearing a bridge to pieces and placing lb on a wagon. As the bridge was one we needed In our business we asked the aged farmer what be was doing with it, and in which case, why so or -words to tnab effecb. He replied: !,My eyesighb is poor and 1 have no spectacles with me. I understand thab many adverbisements are painted on bhis bridye and I am taking ib home in order thab I may read them and Und out where, to geb bargains. The long winter evenings are coming and I want to lay in a supply of bridges and board fences and barndoors thab 1 may sib by my fireside and read wbab bhe merchants haye to say.—Ex. The people want bebber roads and should have them, bub so long as they listen to a few miserly old fogies aud continue in the "old rut" of mud-making roads jusb so long can they worry their horses and weary their, lives. The Board of Supervisors, now in session, should give bhe peonle some better road system than bhe presenb.— Cedar Springs Ciipp er. "A grave yard dance, ab Mill Creek, Jan. (5, 1899." Tnab sounds funny, nevertheless it Is brue. A few of the old residents ab Mill Creek bought land for a cemetery and are giving a series of what they advertise as "grave yard dance" to pay for ib.—Cedar Springs Clipper. The fellow with a fast horse aud nice cutter is the popular young man, and is on a par with the young man who never passes an ice cream shop with a lady wibhout breabing her.

Mr, E. H, Tabor, the editor of that very excellent paper, the Brandon, (Miss.) News, .draws the following y&ry correct p cture; A good deal of trash has been printed ab one blme and another concerning blie much-abused country editor, until the common picture->f him in the eye of the public is a woe-begooo o.b- j«'Cb of chariby, pursued by relentless creditors, obliged bo take turnips, cord wood and cabbage on subscription, and constantly on his knees oegglng for advertising and job work. To a certain extent the country editor warrants this picture/and js bo blame for ib. In too many Instances ibis nrue to life, bubit Is bhe faulb of man himself. If he allows himself to be imposed upon, there are always plenty to pracbice impositions; if he departs from strict business principles, thrt public will t;ike advantage of it in awry way; if he does nob ask fair prices for his work, and is loose in collecting what he does ask, he will always be "ward up;" If be solicits business as a favor, there are always those why will demand a dollars worth of free advertising every time they give him 50 cents worth of lob work; and if he bakes poor names on hjs subscription list and is obliged to take all sorts of rubbish to get even, he will find his cash subscribers only too willing to settle up In the same manner, A newsp iper enterprise is no different from any other, and in the bands of business-Hue, self-res pec ting men will always be so looked upon by'the oubiic. lb represents so much money invested, has serin in expenses that must be met as ufif.iiliiig as bhose of the bunker, tbe merchant or bhe manufacturer, and the public must be so tiughb to consider ib. The day has lung since passed when it. was considered a smart thing to boast of "standing off the printer," and i i is the printer's fault if he suffers ib now, The time has long simfe gone by when the newspaper could be used to bolster up every man's private enterprise wibh out substantial returns, and intelligent,, reasoning men know thab this cannot reasonably be asked, Yeb there is room for further im- provemenbin therelations of the newspaper man and the man on whom he calls for business. The former must first make his wares worth the market price, and bhen demand ib on the same terms thab other concerns do business; while bhe latber should not ask more of the newspaper roan than he would of the merchant, a banker or a rnantt- f icturer with whom he deals. Let the brebhren ponder over these suggesbions, for we venbure to say that in nine cases outof ten, where they are imposed on and held in little respect, It is because they are not entitled to mure.—Yazoo City (Miss,) Sentinel. A Solid Train of. Dead Men. The government is soon to let con- bracts with bhe railroads bo carry about 1,000 coffins to San Francisco for Manila and haul back bhe remains of all our soldiers who were killed or died from disease in the Pbilipines lb will take about a solid train of express cars to bring back the dead, and ib will be the largest single shipment of corpses ever made on railroads in the hisbory of the world. The freight agents of the different big railroads will be husbiing afber the business from now unbil the conbracts are let. Farmers' lOcFeed Barn.
