When we have lots of snow and a severe win-< ter we are likely to have a good crop year. * Most of the farmers are predicting that spring will come all of a sudden this year and that we wUl have pretty weather on a straight when spring opens up. We trust that these predictions are correct as this has been the most severe winter this section has witnessed in the memory of the present generation. Predictions have been freely made that the peach crop was killed but it is thought that the apples are safe enough.

The board of county commis-ioners were in session at the court house Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

McRoberts were appointed viewers for the road in Patoka township petitioned for by Eliza Martin and others, and Ben Osgathorp, Sylvester Horton and Sherman Scraper were appointed viewers on a road petitioned for by W.

All that time the paper has been under the one management. With a meagre equipment as a starter, today it has the best equipment of any newspaper office in Pike county. Better presses, the only typesetting machine iif the county and has built in the fourteen years a circulation a little less than two thousand. It has been done by furnishing the county news, being true to friends and giving value re-» ceived for every dollar spent with it. We deem it opportune at this time to thank the many friends who have so loyally stood by us during all these years. There are many of them who have been on the list during the whole time and can attest the improvement made in the paper. Our equipmeri't for high grade printed matter of «ly kind is the equal of any in thU section. We extend a    in- vitation to any and all our friends to make this office headquarters when in Winslow.
