In Real Life
It seldom happens in real life that the "tail wags
the dog" or that people "get the cart before the horse."
They are merely extravagant examples of 'things
being done in the wrong way. They say there's a wrong
way and a right way to do everything. In taking care of
your money the Right Way is to deposit it in a good
bank like ours where it will be Perfectly Safe yet subject
to your check whenever needed. No need to tell about
the wrong ways to handle your money. It's the "Right
Way that needs to be known and followed.

Congressman Dick T. Morgan was
a Reaver visitor Saturday being out
this way to shako hnnds with tho
people of his district and talk over
affairs In general beforo returning to
his duties at Washington in Decem-
ber. Mr. Morgan will bo a candidate
(or re-election and wo bollevo that
the people of thlH district feel that
he has mado good and nre pretty gen-
erally for him. He Is familiar with
the momentous questions before our
Nation just at this time and the rec-
ord of his votes on all important
measures is such that wo feel sura
this district could not do better than
return him to his seat for another
term. It Is no tlmo to "chango hors-
es in the mlddlo of tho stream."
Congressman Morgan Is the man for
the Job at this time.
DESPERATE NEED FOR RED
Latest advices from abroad empha-
size tho desperate need of Immense
quantities of Burglcal dressings and
hospital supplies. Shipments are be-
ing made on every boat that sails
and have been for many months. Ev-
ery Inch of shipping capacity avail-
able Is being utilized for this purpose.
Our own men are now in tho cas-
ualty list but apart from all this tho
lied Cross in France Is supplying
3423 military hospitals. In addition.
we must build up a large stock ahead
for futuro emergencies. We cannot
wait until our armies are actually In
tho fighting beaytse then all tho
ships nvallablo could not keep up to
the demand for surgical dressings.
Washington headquartors has
asked tho Southwestern Division

THE WHOLE FORCE NOW
It may not bo known to our read-
ers for wo believe that we have kept
up the standard of Tho Herald in
fact we do not know but that It has
been just a little bigger and newsier
than usual but for the past five
weeksyour humble servant has been
doing absolutely all the work in this
office mechanical and otherwise and
that with one of the sorest "run-
arounds" on our thumb that you can
imagine and which has Anally result-
en in dislodging tho nail. If anyone
imagines that wo have had any time
on our hands which we didn't know
what to do with they have another
guess coming. We had a perfectly
good printer up till one Monday
morning about six weeks ago when
we came to the office as usual and
found the door locked and' said
printer gone without bidding us
adieu but kindly leaving our office
key which was delivered to us later

"DRV SPELL" RHOKKN
Not by a. flno copious rain or snow
as we would most desire but by the
importation of qulto a consignment
of boozo at an early hour Saturday
Sheriff Couch and his alert force
got wind that there was something
"rotten In Denmark" Friday so pro-
ceeded to lay foi their victims. Geo.
W. Roblson and May night attendant
at tho light plant wero out of town
and it was suspected that they might
have gono for a consignment of
boozo. Sheriff Couch and Deputies
Jack Coffin and Emmett Gardner ac-
cordingly stationed themselves at
points along tho public highway load
Ing to Heaver and prepared to wait
all night If necessary for develop-
ment. In tho still of tho'nlght about

NEW WINDOWS FOR CHURCH
Tho Presbyterian church peoplo
nre making some improvements at
their church homo this week. In ad-
dition to somo re-modeling on tho In-
terior now stained glass windows
will take tho place of tho old ones
and will add very nmci to tho ap-
puaranco uf that edifice.
A newspaper man(7) in a nearby
town had called our printer during
our absonco from the office and of-
fered him moro money than ho was
getting hero so Without giving us a
chance to "come across" he just left
tho job Instanter. Somo considera-
tion that. Slnco that time we have
beon unable to locate another printer
who was capable s6 have been on the
job every day and part of tho nights
ourself. We just thought while wo
do not care to toot our own horn
particularly that perhaps the editor
of Tho Herald was doing as much
real work as most any woman daring
thoso strenuous war times. It's a
man's-size job to tako care of all tho
work around this sanctum bollevo

ROLL OF HONOR
Regardless of the advance In tho
price of Tho Herald renowals and
new subscriptions havo beon coming
in tho past week at a gratifying rate
Wo felt confident that tho grert ma
jority of our readers would under-
stand and apprecfato tho necessity for
tho ralso In price and wo have not
been disappointed. Only a very few
havo had .their subscriptions can
celled and while of course wo regret
to lose them from our big family of
readers yet that was Uiolr desire
and wo checked off their names just
as cheerfully as wo will re-enter them
ngaln on our books some thrco or six
months henco. Wo know they will
come back. If they don't wo shall
not fall out with them. It Is certain-
ly'not our desire to force The Herald
on anyone. It la published regularly
each week la gotten up as woll as our
ability and tlmo will warrant and Is
hero for salo. If thoso Interested In
