would you print the resolutions on n
If your wife entertained, would
you send an account of It to the
theatre program man?
You would send such Items to a
newspaper, wouldn't you?
Then why don't you put your
advertisements In a newspaper?
Every man who uses a billboard
is adding to nature faking.
Every dollar spent in a theatre
program, in a register. In a directory
or in a handbill is a legitimate dol
lar taken away from the newspapers
of your town.
The newspapers build your town.
Why not help build up the newspa
pers? There is no better advertise
ment In the world for a town than a
good newspaper. A newspaper Is the
barometer of the town's industry.
Show" us a good nowspaper, full of

About Quitting Base Ball, and
Reported to Youngstown.
Fred Schuerholz, of this place,
known In base ball as Pitcher Sherry
has signed his contract and reported
to the Youngstown team, Central
league. Fred made an effort to get
with the Utica team, having tried to
buy his own release after Manager
O'Neill had offered two pitchers for
him and failed in the deal. Sherry
for a time threatened to quit baso
ball unless he was given a chance
to get away from Youngstown and
catch on with a State league team,
but he has since reconsidered his ac-cislon.
Sherry is one of the best curve
ball pitchers in the minor leagues
and did so well in his first season in
organized base ball 1910 that he
was drafted by Washington Amerl
