This Sabbath, durin» the Sunday school hour, Harold Miller will give his report oi the state Sunday school convention at Battle Creek. Of course you want to hear it. William Lutz and Harry Finch are our delegates to the boys' convention at Kalamazoo. We anticipate with much interest their report of this state wide movement and we are fortunate in being so well represented. While in Detroit the pastor was present at the installation of Dr. Gantz in the Westminster church and heard the very able sermon of Dr. Ross Stevenson, president of Princeton Theological seminary and the moderator of the General Assembly. The occasion was the gathering together of the Presbyterian clans near and remote. The following maxims have a bit of suggestion: The -farmers are the founders of civilization. High thinking goes well with high farming. Let the whole family pull-Rigether, that is the best kind of socialism. " No prop for old age like a good farm all paid for. Methodist Church Items Pastor—Rev. G JG. Hicks. The pastor will preach both morning and evening, Sunday, Nov. 2S. At 10 o'clock the subject will be, "The Christian'^ High'Tower."

Buck lived in the house now occupied by T. P. Collins? When Christopher Gugerfcy owned the dwelling property now owned by Mrs. Cressy? When the house now owned by S. A. Fitzgerald was occupied by John A. Smith and family, for a time? When at a Fourth of July celebration, about the year 1888, a cannon in the middle of the street in front of the now waiting room was being fired during the afternoon, exploding with terrific force, one piece penetrating several rooms in the old Kanouse Tavern, opposite, while another piece sailed over the town and was picked up in the backyard where Mr. Hunt now lives? c*i. 9 <i. Price of Potatoes. There is a general belief that because the Michigan potato crop is a failure the tubers will soar in price this winter. Perhaps th'e 'potato market horizon of these people is too restricted. In some sections cf the country the potato crop is particularly heavy. In New Jersey farmers were afraid they would not be given over two "thirds of what it had cost to produce potatoes, and many concluded it was only piling on expensa to dig them. However the potato raisers of the east have been given a ray of hope in the news that South American markets have been opened to America's potato crop. It is said that buyers in Argentina, Brazil, Peru and other northern republics are placing large orders with the result that the price has risen in two weeks from-60 to 70 cents a barrel to 90 cents. Monmouth county, New Jersey, has 2,000,000 barrels of potatoes ready for use and an eastern newspaper suggests that "if prices continue to advance at the present rate, that county will probably soon have as many high powered automobiles for family use as Aroostook county, Maine."

MAIL ORDER HOUSES CAN'T KILL ANY LIVE TOWN. Do not let yourself believe that the mail order houses will ever kill this town. If any considerable number of people in this town and in this neighborhood persist in the habit of sending their money away from home it will, of course, keep this town from ever being anything more than it is, and mav even set it backward. But there will always be a town of some kind here. And the reason is this: a town, after all, is something more than a collection of houses. It is a product not only of the brain hut of the heart. The pioneers saw that this was a natural place for a town to be. They settled here; their children were born here; and here most of their children's children were born. The foiindations of this town areMeeper than the sills that support the houses; they reach down into the hearts of the people of this community. The mail-order patron does not lack patriotism ^o much as he lacks foresight. He probably has never thought very much about it. He 'has thought only of his individual case. It didn't seem to make very much difference to him -if he spent ten dollars or a hundred dollars, away from home. But ten two hundreds are two thousand; and a hundred two hundred are twenty thousand; and §20,000 taken out of the pockets of the town, if such should happen to be the case, would hit it fairly hard. It may not be $20,000 that goes out of this" community to the mail order houses each year, or it may be a great deal more. The mail order patron himself is the best judge of that. He knows at least, if he will look at the front page of his catalogue, that great buildings are built in Chicago and elsewhere out of the great profits of these concerns. He knows also, if he will stop to think, that every brick in those structures is a brick taken out of the upbuilding of this town and other towns like it. These great buildings are not built by selling below cost. They were built not at the expense of the men who built them, but at the expense of the small towns of this country. They were paid for with money that otherwise might have been employed in building up the business houses in this town. Whether the mail order patron saved anything thereby is doubtful, quality considered; whether the town lost anything is certain. But neither the mail order house or the mail order patron can kill this town absolutely. There wilb always be a considerable number of people who will prefer getting value at home to getting stung abroad. They will use both foresight and sense. These will form the nucleus of the town of the future just as they form the backbone of the town of the present. And in the future as in the past, they will go ahead helping to provide the children of the mail order patron with school, his family with church, his vehicles with roads and streets, his needs with his necessities, -while he fritters away his means' elsewhere. He will continue to reap the harvest whether he helps to sow and cultivate or not. Reams have been written and pages have been printed about the duty a man owes to his town to do his buying at home. But it is not merely a duty; self-interest also demands it. If it were a matter of duty alone it is to be feared that few of us wduld pay much attention to it. When Phillip Brooks returned one time from abroad a reporter met him at the pier and jocularly asked: "Doctor Brooks, did you-bring over any new religion that you had to pay duty on?" "I am not so foolish," replied the quick-witted divine, "as to attempt to introduce into America any religion with duties attached to it." We are not as bad as that, but we are inclined sometimes to neglect public duty and devote our thought" rather to promoting private interest.

And every story a good one. They are entertaining, but that is not all you can say about them. "Eou __now there is hardly a periodical published that is not full of time-wasting stories, but not a story in The* Youth's Companion is a time waster. Take the stories of C. A. Stephens. It would be hard to pick, out one from which you cannot learn something useful and yet entertaining. - Some of The Companion stories refresh your knowledge of geography, some tell you the mysteries of chemistry, some reveal the secrets of forestry and of general farming. They cover a wide range. They are chosen with an an eye to the possible likings of every member of a Companion family—stories of vigorous action and stirring adventure for boys, stories of college life and domestic vicissitudes for girls, stories that range all the way from sheer drolls ery to deep seriousness for men and women. There are no stories quite like those in The Companion. If you are not familiar with The Companion as it is today, let us send you sample copies and the Forecast for 1916.
