These men are natives of Winslow who have gone out into the world and have made good. They were small boys whcm their parents moved to Winslow from Kentucky in 1885. Both got all their schooling here and both left home in early manhood and have made good. They are splendid men the community * is not ashamed of. I Some>^llow has introducá a bilMn-to the legislature to amend the rMis-tration law by having the towipbip assessor register voters as he goes about his rounds assessing. Under county, proposed law he would leave the vot^ a card showing his registration which the voter would present when offering to vote. If the voter moved he wouHl go to bis assessor, sursender the oard and get a new one if he did not move so as to lose his vote. Certainly under this plan few men would get by beiHK assessed. Instead of the assessor buying the men to assess them they wottkl be bunting the assessor to get registered and while he had them he oeold asaesB them. If the fellofv had added to his bill making tiw voter present his poll tax receipt before he could use bis registration card he might not have had boeh a bad law.    ^ William Sorgius’ store in the east end was broken into Sunday night and four boxes of tobacco stolen.

The barber pole is a souvenir of the days when all kinds of business were represented by pictorial signs, largely because ability to read was not general. An explanation of the barber pole is that it comes from the time when barbering was done by surgeons or pbyicians and when the practice of bleeding for all kinds of illness prevailed. The barber stripes, according to this explanation, picture the blood stain on white cloth frequently to be observed after taking the bleeding treatment. The barber pole has nothing do wit|^ national colors. More of those fine sweet potatoes at Woodford’s. 25c canvas gloves for 20c. Hardware Store. - -1 WINSLOW, PIKE COUNTY, INDIANA.

On information furnished by Nqrman O’Neal who was arrested and fined yesterday on a charge of being intoxicated, B. B.

It is estimated that a million more people will 'lie required to file income tax returns this year on their gross income for 1918 than has ever filed any year before. Any single man whose gross income from all#eowrces was $1,000 must file a report to the Inthmal revenue collector. All married persons whose gross Incomes were $2,000 or better must file a return. More people will pay income tax in this community ihan ever before as wages were higher and work better in 1918 thah ever before. Hardly a single man in the community but will pay income tax. Few men drew less than $6 a day during 1918 with every day work and many extra shifts. The young man in this community who did not make $1,000 or better is scarce or else he did dot work when be had an opportunity.

Elmer Roy Burial was in the Blackfoot cemetery. That the high cost of living is coming down seems an assured fact. Many of the necessaries of life are heading downwc^d and more are soon to follow. We common folk can stand quite a reduction. The lower prices* are not being felt by the consumer as yet on account of the retailer holding his prices until this stock of high cost goods is exhausted. But^tbat will not be long and then we will begin to notice the lower cost of living. At the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Chas.

John Hostmeyer, ‘.‘Slim” Gates, Will Noland and Roscoe Wilder are among the boys heard from this week. They are all of the opinion that they will be better satisfied with honne when they get back again. “Never again,” says one of them, “will I care to leave the old town and friends to travel among strangers.” Our desk is piled with let ters frocq^ldiers but not a single letter has failed to say something good for the Red Cross. Many mention having received their Christmas boxes and each in good order. President W. P. Dearing of the Oakland City college, has announed a plan to erect a memorial building in connection with the college to be known as Liberty Hall. The proposed building will house a war museum, a picture gallery and an auditorium for use of soldiers organizations on the first fioor. The second floor will have a war library, a college library and a reading room'. The college points to its war record to base its claim for such a building, claiming more than 800 students now with the colors, 9 girls'in Red Cross work and the death of 8 students while in service. Then the college turned over its Gronbách building in which a company of 100 student soldiers was housed. The campaign to raise the money will be put on at once. Some years ago the members of the Winslow board of trustees purchased two chemical engines. There was much complaining at the time the fire wagons wero purchased that they would never be worth the money. No small amount of sport was made of them on various occasions but all that has changed and our people are learning to have a bettér ^egaxd for them. If they never do ^anything but save .the Lobbey jiailding to the town they arp well worth the mhney they coat. They work to perfection when anything like properly managed. The only thing we need'is some man who will see that they are kept in working order and at all times ready to work, Fires do not pick a'time, when we are ready for theifi but we should keep our fire ap-paratos' ready for the fire no matter when it comes.

The disposition most likely seems to be that these colonies will be looked after by the^ league of nations with one nation or a committee to see after them. It does not seem probable that the colonies will be turned back to Germany*with-out some supervision of them being field by .the other nations. Deeds have been made to convey to the poss’ession of Henry Pope of Port-ersville the 343 acre farm of Charles Wiscaver’s about a mile north of Ot-well. Th^e consideration is $34,000.06, all cash.

Winslow came so near having a disastrous fire Monday just before noon that it seems almost a miracle that tbe big Lobbey building did not burn. A gasoline blow-pipe in Dr. E. Dillen’s dental office exploded. Gasoline and fire went in every direction and at once the entie place was on fire. Dr. Dillen was blown backward against a partition wall bis hands and face severely burned at the same time. Miss Ruth Pancake was in the operating chair at the time but was not injured. Her mother was sitting on a settee waiting. Miss Pancake’s coat was burned before it could be removed. The entire inside of *the dental office was on fire .instantly tbe three occupants barely having time to get out. The ^tlaim of fire waa spread at once and people ran from down stairs with hand extinguishera and the fire wagons brought out and a stream of chemical played into tbe room until tbe fire was extinguished. Tbe fire wagons were brought to the fr<Hit and the stream thrown through a front window. The entire inside of the building was on firq and all is a total wreck. Dr. DHlen’s entire offioe ouflt is rained. His chair was burned and all his outfit. About twenty sets of teeth In the making were burned ai^ every tool he had is a total loss. A iiew pair of dress shoes were burned. Dr. Dillen’s bums will be several days in healing. He will not4>e able to op|n hia offtee until be buys a new outfit and it arrives.
