“The county at large must
bear the expense of building 48
bridges across the big drainage
ditch which crosses Lincoln
county, and not the property
owners in the beuetitted drain-
age district. This is the sub-
stance of an opinion of the
supreme court handed down
this mormug by Justice Riddle
in the case of Homer J. Wilkius
drainage commissioner of Deep
Fork Drainage District No. 1,
Lincoln couuty, against the
board of county commissioners
“Wilkins, a member of the
board of county commissioners
and also of the drainage board
ex-officio, took the position that
the couuty should pay for the
bridges. Other members of the
board of couuty commissioners
aud a number of citizens went
before Judge Hoilman and se-
cured a mandamus compelling
the drainage board to let the
contract for the bridges amount-
ing to $81,930, aud charge it
against the people m the bene-,
fitted district. The supreme
court reverses the decision aud
holds that the couuty at large
would be benefited by the im-
provements aud that all the
taxpayers should share in the
Very disagreeable weather i»
the portion of this vicioty this
week tho doubtless it could be
worse. A light s>)eet, Sunday,
was followed by another heavier
one Tuesday, followed by a
couple of days of fog and drizzle
which by the time this is read
may have developed into a se-
vere storm. ' Since the above
was written a heavy snowfall
has commenced. Truly, an ex-
traordinary spell of weather,
with latent possibilities of
every conceivable nature.

The Home Newspaper
When a man is through with
his day’s work and is sitting
down restiug in liin home, he
connot read the advertisements
on the fences nor the hand bills
and circulars that were left on
the doorstep during the day,
and which have blown away or
been destroyed. Ho cabs for
his home paper and there finds
not only the news of his imme-
diate community, but the an-
nouncements of his home mer-
chants, who are his neighbors
and friends, and with nothing
to bother his mind he reads it
carefully and calls his wife’s
attention to it and they decide
they will go to the stores and
examine what is advertised. If
the merchant has not over-
stated the facts he will profit
by his announcements in the
public press. If he’s a prevari-
cator and doesn’t say what he
means he need not expect ad-
vertising to save him, for when
a business man is tricky it does
not take long for the news to
travel over, the neighborhood
and he will be tiie one to suffer
in the end.
