We. presume there never was a newspaper in any locality that gave all the local happenings. It is often that some •qne comes or goes that the reiwrter does not see. It happens that the'fam-ily is missed seve^l times. They get the impression that the editor does not care to mention them. Thds is a mistake. In most country towns the local work is the hardest work connected with a newspaper. A man may be a good editorial writer, but a flat failure in the local work, and vice versa. Editorial material is obtained by study, by reading bewspapers, sometimes by using scissors. Persons and local happenings can’t be read and clipped from other papera, not by a Jugfni. It takes physical as well as mental exertion to get oat ten or twelve columns of local news in a town of this aize. Most people take a local paper to get tha local happenings. Don’t be afraid to tell the editoi; or reporter that you have friends visiting yon. There are lota of people who are interested in your ^friends. You owe it as a duty to tbem to let your friends know of their doings.' Perhaps you think the paper shows partiality, but jnst see if the paper' doesn’t treat you right if yon give it ebanee. There are fathers who grandly struggle against the tides of fate, and never list the secret of their despair, whose young dreams have all faded, but who patiently bear their allotted .burden with what %ies to be resignation. There are noble women whose domestic afflictions would crush them if they were not heroines, who silently suffer and mjake the most of their disappointed years.' They sing and so the world thinks them happy, when they are only brave.    ^ Mrs. M. J. Robinson, a lady well known in this county, died Sunday morning at the home of her duagbter,-Mrs. Claude Fettinger in Evansville. Her\death was caused by paralysis. Deceased was for many years a resident of Oakland City. She was a sister to Mrs. J. D. Grime of this township where she visited quite often.

Judge Ward of Winchester, was present. The cause was continued until July 7th when the commissioners are to file new report. The petitioners asked for the continuance for the purpose of allowing the commissioners to file a new report. Judge Ward will be back on the 7th of July to receive the new re port. The remonstrators will have ten days in which to remonstrate against any new matters that may be brought into the new report. The trial date will then be set and the trial will start in earnest. The probable date of the trial will be July 21st 'The court room was pretty well filled Monday morning when the matter was taken op but when the real trial starts there will be many persons present and a large array of legal talent on both aides.
