A good country road is always to be desired and is a source of comfort and convenience to ev.ery traveler. Good roads attract population, as well as good schools and churches. Good roads improve the value of the property, so that it is said a farm lying five miles from market, connected by a bad road, is of less value than an gqually good farm lying ten miles away from mark-ebconnected by a good road. A larger load can be drawn by one horse over a good road than by two over a bad one. Good roads encourage the greater exchange of products and commodities between one section and another.

They all enjoyed the privileges of such a magnificent thing for boys. They all enjoyed the games, the swimming pool, the music and the fine associations they found at the building. Some day we may get a something similar for our boys. When we do they Will be better boys and the greater opi>or-tunities will make of them better men.

It is one of the necessarie s of the farmer and business man. It pots the ball in motion when any new enterprise is proposed that would be a benefit to liie town and the community in which it is established. It keeps an eye en every move that is calculated to help the people. It keeps a record of the happenings of the town and the aorrounding country, and is read a thousand miles away hy persons who are hunting a home and a place to invest their money. It booms your town and gives^t a name abroad that it would otherwise not have. It points out that advantages of its town and county so that the wdrld may see-it. and when a man ge^ mad it takes a “cussing”^ as eooly as anybody, but hews straight to tbe line Just the same There are tbooaasds of reascms why a town should anpport a newspaper, but the greatest of ail. is beeaose it pays 4uid pays well to afternoon by the relatives of Russell Survant that be had died in France. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. William L. Survant. He was born in Velpen, November 16, 1898. He married Corda Burlingame who with a baby survives with the parents and many other relatives and friends. Russell enlisted in the army April 13, 1917 In Company M of Princetdn and went to Jeffersonville, Ind., where he did duty for some time. On May. 5th he was transferred to Camp Shelby where he remained until Juno 4th, 1918. He landed in Prance some time last June and was transferred to Co. L, 166 infantry, 42 Rainbow division. He was in the hard fighting of September 29tfai, being gassed at that time. He soon want back into service and on October ISth wae wounded. No word had been received from him since September 29th. He had been located in a hospital by relatives. Rua-sqll was a popular yonng man. knowp by everyone in and around i^elpen. His death east a sliadow over tha oom-aranity whera he bad lieed so long. A real newspaper must be something like the Apostle had in mind when he said “Be all things to all men.’’ The reporter may not be personally a champion of card parties, base ball, dances, or other amusements, yet they must be recorded; neither is he necessarily a church member because he mentions the good work of revivals, favors all reforms, advocates morality and the prohibition of the liquor traffic, but priqts all things of all kinds ‘of news. Personal quarrels, scandals, or ordi nary drunks are not news, and ought not, as a rule,' be scattered broadcast as news.    , In the case of &Iinerya E.

There is an old adage that “The man who grows up in his native town is regarded as a boy by his elders until be is well started down the declivity of life that ends in a hole.

This is a sure way to make mischief. Keep your eyes on your neighbors. Take care of them. Do not let them stir without watching. They may do something Wrong if you do. To be sure you never knew them to do anything bad, • btit it may be on your account they have not. Perhaps if it bad not been for your kind care they might have disgraced themselves a long time ago. Therefore do^not relax any effort to keep them where they ought to be. Never mind your own business—that will take care of itself—he is looking over the fence—lie suspicious of him; perhaps he contemplates stealing some of these dark nights there is no knowing what queer fancies be may have got into hia bead, li you find any symptoms^of anyone passing out of the path of duty, tell every one else what you see. and be particular and see a great many. It is-a good way to circulate such things, it may not benefit you or any one else particularly. Do keep something going—silence is a dreadful thing; though it is said tbere^ was silence in heaven for the apace of half an hour, do not let such a thing occur on earth; it would be too much for thia mundane apbere. If, after all your watchful care you cannot aee that hey bave done anything bad, throw out biota that they are no better than they should be. that you ahould not wonder if the people found out what they were after a while, then they may not carry their beada ao high.

They played against Decker high school Friday morning for the opening game of the series. This game the team won in a score of 19 to 13. Friday evening tfie, Winslow team met the Edwardsport team and won from it. the score being 39 to 9. Saturday afternoon the teaiB-loet 25 to 26 to Union which pat the local team out of the running. At the close of the Winslow-' Union game it was announced that Winslow had won tbe game 24 to 26 but the official score keeper after some minutes announced that tha Union team bad won by one point. Some confusion was caused., the local fans claiming that an errror bad been made. They were upheld in their contention by many others frqm other places and from the city folk who bad been keeping the score. It was generally conceded that the local team had won the game but the official score keeper’s count went and Union played the final with the Vincennes team, tbe score standing 42 to 7. A protest was registered with tbe State high school atb-letfc aaaociattion which has not been heard from All the Pike county teams made good showings. Union went to the finiab, Otwell stood up for two games and Winslow for two Tbe meet was held in the beatuttfcl Junior high school building which was filled to overflowing at each aeaclon. Everyone had a good time. We were tony the little mik^p our men had with the eeore keep». Even the Unkm teafti wM as much ntrpcifled as Winaiew. They are mairiy feLowa whn ehowd the ri^l    Weitm    nU surroundings and '“long to casT"fheir lot in other quarters.’’ But of these same young men who grow up with the town more is expiected. If they are unusually gifted or if they do any unusual things for the community or tbe people, it is taken as a matter of fact. Really, more is expected of the young man who grew up here at home and less credit is given him. But to the young man who makes good under these circumstances much credit is due and we know a number of them. And for this community, may their tribe increase! What is a church? The honest sextotr tells: ‘Tisa-tall building, with tower and bells. That the churches in any community exercise a most pdtent influence for good, is cdnceded hy all except tbe most rabid or blatent infidel whose egotism and self-conceit blind his mind to the inestimable valne of Christianity. But to What extent are the churches valuable to this community? The Galilean teacher said of His disciples: “Ye are the light of the world.” “Ye are tha salt of the earth.” Hence, if all His disciples are the light of the world and the salt of the earth, thh logical as well as the scriptural conclusion is that they are light of the community in which they live. These declarations, however, dcT not preclude the possibility of tbe light goibg out—being hid under a bushel— or the salt losing its saltness. But certainly no reasonable or fair minded person would accuse tbe churches of being wholly composed of united bands of hypocrites. For it matters not to what extent sin, in its many forms, may prevail in the ranks of any church, you will find, within its membership, consecrated men and women. And it should be borne in mind that it only requires a few of tbe above mentioned cases to become a ligt^t of the community. There is not a man in our town, however indifferent to the claims of Christianity, who woutfl want to rear his family here if there were no churches or church influence, for he at once recognises them ae the guardians of the morals of the community. What would be the condition of thia community at tbe end of tbe next ten years if from this time until then the cfattschea w«e closed? To what extent would life and property be safe? And yet. with all the organised agenciee ef the ehurche», the devil too frequmtly holds high earaival.
