In case of fire with a ladder handy often times a few buckets of water if gotten to the fire in time will put the fire out.

Let him always remember that there is room enough at the top and that the question whether he is ever to reach the top, or rise above the crowd at the base of the pyramid, will be decided by the way in which he improves the first few years in securing for himself a thorough knowledge of bis profession and a sound moral and intellectual culture.    _ The GrahVim Glass Workers ball club of Evansville came here Sunday and were defeated by Winslow Cubs 4 to 0.

They never think what a source of pleasure and profit—or reminescence and thouhgt. a file of even a few numbers of such a paper would be to them twenty or thirty years afterwards. Pay for your papers and then keep them. _ The fellow who stops his paper because he becomes offended at some item that does not suit his fanc3r; always imagines he is getting even with the publisher, hut he is never missed. This only happens occasionally for there are only a few people in any community who imagine a paper should contain nothing but what they approve of.    •__ A contemporary says that newspaper subscriptions are infallible tests of a man’s honesty. They will sooner or later discover the man. If he is dia-honest he will cheat the printer some way; say be has a receipt some where, or sent tha money and it was lost in the máil, or he will take the paper and not pay for. it on the ground that be did not subscribe for it. or move away, leaving it to come to the office he left. in this particular at teilst^' and the printer’s book will tell fearful tales in the final judgment. ____ Hearing on the petition of the Pike County Telephone Company for authority to increase rates will be held Tuesday, September 16th at 9 :30 o’clock a. m.
