Mist Lillian Coley, one of our
alumni, was a welcom visitor at
school Wednesday morning.
The Fidelis class of the
Baptist Sunday school met last
Wednesday evening at the home
of Mrs. L. A. Drumwright. The
class having to give up Mrs.
Spooner, their devoted teacher,
they prevailed on Mrs. Drum-
wright to fill the office, which
she kindly consented to do. The
class is growing in interest,

The Missionary Society of the
Baptist church met last Tuesday
at the church builning for an all
day meeting. About fifty
gathered and the day was spent
pleasantly and profitably in Bible
study and in outlining the work
for another month. At noon a
splendid lunch was ssrved, hav-
ing been prepared before hand
and brought to the church.
Rav. Drumwright an* five
other preachers were present and
to say that the neon exercises
were enjoyed would be a waste
of words. Of course Bro. Drum-
wright being very delicate, it fell
to the lot of others to do the
principle part of the eating.

We want to boost you—yes,
you, individually. WiU you give
us the opportunity?
This town needs a booster, and
we stand ready to boost the town
booster—and the town, too. Shall
we boost you?
We need some energetic man
who will marshal his pluck and
determination and round all of
I the rest of us up into one great
aggregation of boosters. It
takes brains to do it, but some
one among us possesses the re-1
quiste amount of brains. i
The town needs him, the
whole community needs him, and
we never needed him worse than
we do right now, when nature
has afforded us so many oppor-
tunities for commercial ad-
Are you that man?
We hope you are. We want
to see you step forward and
assume the laudable task. We
want to see you succeed. And
then we want to boost you be-
| cause of the boosting you have
done for the town.
Owing to the fact that the
rural routes have changed their
time of lepving, from 7:30 a. m.
to 1.30 p. m., and in order to get
the Tribune to our readear earlier
we have decided to change our
publication day from Friday to

Time was when we could make
ourselves fairly undmtood by
bluntly calling it a lie, but now a
more appropriate and expressive
term will have to be coined for
some of the stuff the yellow cor-
respondents are sending up from
the border. The other day Villa

places, was minus one leg, crip-
pled in the other shot through
the stomach, well and hearty, and
dead and burried all at one and

not equal that record for sub-

What ar« you
Go into a church and sit down.
Stay sit until tha end of the
service and keep your ears open
and your mind on what the
preacher is saying. Then go
home and think over what he
had to say. Don't give his
words just a passing thought and
then let your mind slide back in-
to the old financial groove.
Take his discourse subject by
subject snd analyze it thorough-
ly. Pick out the good points and
study them minutely as you dis-
cover them. You can spend
several hours very pleasantly in
this work, and at the end of
that time you may be amazed at
the feeling of peace and content-
ment that prevades your being.
You will find that there are
many things you knew that had
been forgotten for these many
years, and when they pass from
memory their value practically
ceases to exist.
Go to church Easter.
Set an example to the young
people of your family and of
other peoplie's families. Let
them judge you by what you are
and not by what others may
have to say of you. Let your
own actions afford them the op
portunity for so judging.
The church door swing out-
ward to every human being. The
hand of welcom beckons to you,
and the still voice of conscience
is calling to you.
Go in, and sit down, and listen,
and think, and then act.
Philadelphia Inquirer: It ia
evident that the railways of the
country confront the most seri-
ous sitiuation in their history.
Practually all of the operating
employes of the leading systems
of the country have presents!
demands for shortsr heurs, In*
creased wages and other een-
considerations which are esti-
mated to call for an addittonnl
expenditure of $100,000,000 an-
nually, or 5 per cent on $1,000,*
000;000. Considering thnt nil
the railways have been having n
hard time in the last few ywt
in making both ends meet sa4
that some them have gone to the
wall, the demand is calculated te
make them consider this situation
seriously, since the date set for
an answer involves the threat of
a strike of such proportions ss te
paralyze the counrty.
Two considerations are involv-
ed. Is the demand just? If ss
where is the money to be found.
As to the first cbnsidsrntion,
the public is without thnt 4ef-
nite information upon which te
base an opinion. The demands
come from the highest Hi*
classes of employes, most nil ef
whom have had very consider-
able increases of wages in the
last few years. It is not pretest-
ed that these do not make n liv-
