Robert N. Alexander and family of Mitchell, Ind.. spent a few days here last week visiting his brother, Samuel G. Alexander and other relatives and friends. In company with John Q. Alexander and wife he was in Winslow Saturday Mr. Alexander lived here forty years ago but finds the community very much changed in that time. There is an asethetic side to the good roads movement that is of no little importance. What is drearier, what is more depressing than to drive along a country road deep with mud and furrowed by ruts, the water standing in pools in the road and not in the ditches as it would be if the roads were properly built. The Tell City ball^team will be here Sunday to meet the local team. That it will be some ball game there is no question. These two teams met on the Tell City diamond early in the season when the local team was defeated. The teams are pretty evenly matched and a good game Is certain regardless of who wins.    ^ Pike county will likely have a county agent before long. At a meeting of farmers in Petersburg Friday the matter was taken up and a petition prepared to present to the county commissioners asking for the appointment of a county agent. It will be granted. The farmers of the county will be organized into the state federation of farmers and the county’s share of the fund asked will be subscribed. Counting big and little ones Sheriff Bryan had seventeen gypsies in the county jail at one time Tuesday. The band came from toward Jasper. This side of Jasper some place they took something like $50 from a farmer. He telephoned to Petersburg and had them placed in jail. In the afternoon he came to Petersburg and told them if they would pay up he would let them go if they would leave the county. They paid up and dug out at once. The country newspaper is facing a crisis. Over two thousandjcountry papers suspended during 1917 and 1918. Owing to the condition of the paper The smoke from burning leaves is known to cause diphtheria. People have been warned of this time and again. Yet. some folks insist on burning the leaves. Do not do it. Leaves *nake excellent fetrtilze besides and the country needs the fertilize. Rake the leaves into a pile and next spring they will be good fertilize for the garden. But whatevjsr you do, do not bom the leaves and thus endanger the health of,the ^hildren of the community. This community has bad more than its share of diphtheria and when we know anything is wrong wo are criminally negligent if we do it. Do not bora the leaves! Blythe Lamb, charged with the murder of bis sister-in-law, Mrs. John Rickrich a few weeks ago has been removed from the Pike county jail to the jail at Jasper. He will remain in jail there until his trial has been finished. A change of venue was taken when the case^ came up for bearing in this county. The trial will start there next Monday. At least it is set for then. Mrs. Esthel FlorencePXuff, wife of Clarence Luff, died Saturday morning about 6 o’clock at their home south of town on the No. 7 road. She was sick market the Evansville Courier predicts that many more will soon be compelled to go out of business. Many large papers have been forced to raise the Subscription price in self defence. What the outcome of the high costs to newspapers will be is a question. Many good towns have already been deprived of their weekly paper and many more will be.    ' hut a few hours. Friday morning she was op and able to go to breakfast but took very suddenly sick and died in the few hours later. Deceased was 21 years old July 19th last. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rafe Roe and was one of this community’s splendid young women. Only a few years ago she and Mr. Luff were married. Surviving is the husband with many other relatives and friends. The funeral service was conducted Sunday afternoon from Saints* Chapel. The service was conducted by Elder O. P. Agee and Elder Haste. Burial was in Hie Ashby cemetery. |by went to Orleans, Rev. John went to Paoli, Rev. L. D. lood to Park and Rev. R. H-}t to Bartlettsville. Thousands are ought to be taught; thousands believe themselves wise when their ignorance is lamentable; thousands believe tbem-sevles clothed in gold when they are only thinly plated and the copper shows through in many places. The wisest are comparatively ignorant and thous-^ands of men who have grand ideas of »c>wti IffifliHee’ wilf iWHiti dey weláP up to the realization that they have been laboring under a large mistake. In the case of Mattie B. Cooper vs. Lucy^. Bryant tried in the Pike circuit court last week, a permanent in-juncton was secured against the defendant preventing her from playing her piano from 8:30 o’clock P. M. until 6 o’clock A. M. until further orders of the court. The complaint was that the defendant annoyed the plaintiff with the piano until late hours of the night and that the plaintiff’s health was injured thereby. If you like your town, say so. If you dont, keep still and try to improve whatever does not suit you. Remem ber that when you start knocking the town in which you live, you are also talking against yourself, your family, and your business. If other places seem more desirable than your own home town, it is only because they are at such a distance that you cannot perceive their imperfections. You are living right now in the best town on earth. Tell people about it. The Velpen and Stendal canning factories are doing a wonderful business right now and have been for several weeks. Thousands of cans of tomatoes are being shipped from these two points. The largest tomato acreage was planted this year ever known in the county. The growers have made considerable money. Those who have tried it say the tomato is good for the soil. The plans are for an even larger acreage for next year. Lou O’Neal, a highly respecjUfed lady of Monroe township, died Sunday. She was 56 years 6 months and 17 days old. She was a widow, her husband having died some ten years ago. She was converted when 14 years old and united with the U. B. church and lived a consistent Christian life. Surviving is one son and many friends. The funeral service was held Tuesday at the Blackfoot church conducted by Rev. G. B. Wright of Oakland City. Burial was in the cemetery by the church. This thing of taking public money to erect monuments toymen has about gone the limit in this country. It is wrong from every angle. The idea of officials appropriating the peoples money to erect a monument to some dead hero is wrong. If a man wants some dead friend to have a monument he should put up the money and not •‘swipe’* it out of the public treasury. But we are continuing to do it in this country. A monument never could do anybody any good. Our theory is to give the flowers to the living. They cannot smell them after they are dead. Friday, September 19th was the 61st anniversary of the birth of Mrs. Jacob Sorgius of the Flat Creek neighborhood and in honor of the event the following relatives made their way with well filled baskets to her home at the noon If there is any money in owning houses for rent, and there certainly is at the prices they are renting for in this town, some man can make a “jack” by building a hundred or more houses in Winslow. Every day from one to a dozen people are running over town hunting a house to move into. New houses are being built slowly but not fast enough to accommodate the people who want houses. People are living two and three families in a house. The prices being paid for rent certainly will give one a splendid investment on the money. of near At the close of the Indiana Methodist conference Monday morning the appointments for the coming year were read. Rev. D. W. Noble who has been pastor of the Winslow church for the past two years, goes to Chandler. Rev. M. C. Buchanan comes to the Winslow church. The following are the appointments for the Evansville district: John S. Ward, district sup- For some time the Petersburg ball fans and the manager of the Petersburg team have been insisting on a ball game with the Winslow team. The local sports did not want the managere to play the Petersburg team claiming that they were not fast enough for the locals. The Petersburg crowd continued to insist on a series of games when the local manager finally agreed to a game last Sunday. The score stood 7 to 0 at the close of the game, the vfeftors getting but one hit. Of coarse there will be no more games between these teams as the Petersburg team is so far out of class with the Winslow team that the crowd will not pay iu money to see the game. A fairly good crowd was in attendance but it figured that it did not get its money’s wortbr Next San-day a atrong team has bean ramred that will make an intereeting ^une. Mt. and Mrs. Henry Martin Stendal were pleasantly surprised Sunday morning when their children, grandchildren, sisters and brothers quietly walked in on them with well filled baskeU. It was also the birthday' of their grandson Elmo Sakel. Among the children present was Oliver Martin from Kansas who bad not seen his parents for four years At noon a bounteous dinner was served. After dinner the elder folks took their chairs into the front yard and talked over the times gone by, the afternoon seeming only too short. The yuonger folks enjoyed games and other amnsemects.

We were blessed with a fine day and quite a good crowd was here not withstanding the busy season, farmers were all busy preparing their wheat ground, cutting com, filling their silos. The committee bad no program but left it all to the old boys to entertain and they certainly did the thing justice. The social part was the best ever and there were quite a few more attended this reunion than last year and we were glad to see them making gaina in this way. Speeches were made by a dozen or more of the old comrade*. The good ladies of Algiers and vicinity brought baskets filled with the beat eats this country affords and there was plenty for all present. The old boya did eat, eat to their heart’s content. There were twenty-two of the old comrades of the war of 61 to 65 and there were twelve world war boya present. Short talks were made by Harlan Osgatborp and Lieut. D. W. Bell which wore quite intoretking to all.
