What are you doing for your town?  If you have no confidence in the growth and improvement of the town and country in which you live how on earth do you expect other people to move among you and cause the country to develop and grow for your benefit.


When a man in search of a home or business location goes to a town and finds everybody full of hope and enthusiasm over the prospect of the place, he too soon becomes imbued with the same spirit, drives down his stakes and goes to work with equal interest.


Miss Laura Neitzel is engaged with sewing here this week.

A cold wave struck us early this week and is still with us. The thermometer registered 5 above zero Wednesday.  If winter has set in without our usual fall rains, we wager to say that there will be a water famine before spring.  Wells on a number of farms hereabouts which were heretofore never known to go dry have refused to furnish enough water to supply the stock.


A young woman in Gibson City, Illinois, has resigned her position as teacher in the public schools for the purpose of going as a missionary to Africa.  Why should she go so far when Chicago is so near, and where there are more heathens to the square yard than there are in Africa to the twelve square miles.  Strange ideas of missionary work these school marms have.


Billy Jones wrote on the blackboard, "Bill Jones can hug the girls better than any boy in the school."  The teacher seeing it, called him up.  "William, did you write that?" she said.  The children waited for Billy to come out, and then they began to guy him. "Got a lickin’, didn’t you?" "No" said Bill.  "Get Jawed?" "No" "What did she do?" they asked. "Shan’t tell," said Bill, "but it pays to advertise."


The good book says, "Give to everyone that asketh thee," but that doesn’t mean to give a drunkard, money to buy whiskey; it doesn’t mean to give the baby a hammer and looking glass because he asks for it, and it doesn’t mean that we should give to professional beggars who travel from town to town. The Bible doesn’t always mean what it says, but always means what it means.

There are two little words, simple enough in themselves that introduce untold trouble in the world and are responsible for more gossip, scandal and harm than any two words in the English language.  These two words are nothing more than "They say".  They have done more to ruin the reputations than all other things.  If you never quote what "they say" you may be quite certain you are not a gossip.
