A few years ago a country newspaper
enterprise was looked upon as a sort of
charitable institution that commanded
its patronage much on tho same lines
of other "good things" for a community.
The country subscriber would take and
read the paper not so much because it
contained things that he found out in
no other way, but "just to help the
printer along." The merchant of the
town would run the same ad. from one
year's end to the other, occasionally
changing a line that might happen to
read "Fall and Winter," to "Spring
and Summer," but more frequently
neglecting to give his advertising even
this slight attention. One day, however,
some country merchant figured It out
that if the advertising could bn made
to pay in the city on a large Bcale, it
could be mndo profitable in the country
on a smaller plan, and devoted some of
the time formerly usod In telling stories
around the stove to figuring on a plan
to make his advertising pay. He start
ed in on changing bis ad. frequently, by
telling facts about his goods and by do
ing just as he advertised. Soon his
business had grown to such an extent
that he was willing to pay cash for his
advertising instead of store goods and
plug tobacco. This awakened the coun
try merchant generally and to-day it is
not necessary for the ad vertlstnff solicit
or in the smallest communities to ex
plain that It pays to advertise, but he
only needs to toll why his Is tho best
Since then the county newspaper has
developed from a charitable institution
Into a business proposition. The editor
is no longer asked to take pumpkins or
some garden truck for his paper, or
doal his advertising bills out over the
counters of the country store, but he
pays the money for what he goU and
gets paid for what he does. His adver
tising space is considered a part of his
stock in trade and the person who asks
him to dlxpoun of it for nothing belongs
to a newspaper ago of a former day.

Some CommonMnso Views on Con
Edward E. Niver, former editor of
the Brockwayvlllo Jfrcorrf, now an em
ployee of the Pittsburg IHnjtntrh, In
letter to the Itivord last woek, had the
following to say regarding Hon. W,
O. Smith's nomination for Congress.
"I see by the press dispatches that
my friend, W. O. Smith, Is again a can
didate for the Jefferson county endorse
ment for Congress, and that tho Repub
lican primaries are likely to bo held in
February. While I feel sure that Mr.
Smith will be accorded the support he
has always received in the eastern part
of Jefferson county and over tho whole
county for that matter there are spec
ial reasons why he should recelvo the
county endorsement at the coming
'When Mr. Smith left the Legisla
ture and stood for Congress, it was at
the Instance of his many frionds, who
believed his ability and special training
pre-eminently qualified him for higher
legislative duties. This feeling 'was
shared by Republicans generally over
the county. Mr. Smith made the run
and received his old time popular ma
jority for the county endorsement, al
though fully aware thut Jefferson had
but slight claims for the district nomi
nation. His notion however wits a start
in the direction which his constituents
desired him to follow, and was so con
sidered at the time. At the district
conference, of which I was a member,
Mr. Smith made every honorable effort
to secure tho nomination. Falling in
that he gave his support to Indiana
county, whoso logical claims for the
nomination were undoubted. The con
ference was clean, honorable and above
board in every respect, and free from all
deals. Because he could not secure the
nomination himself, Mr. Smith did not
complicate matters by deadlocking the
"If any Jefferson county man can se
cure the district nomination this term,
It is W. O. Smith. In fact I firmly be
lieve no one else in the county will stand
any show. From his long experience
in the Legislature Mr. Smith is infinite'
ly better fitted to assume the duties of a
Congressman than any inexperienced
man. His wide acquaintance in Jeffer
son would insure the most careful con'
sideration of the county's Interests, and
the people will make no mistake in

A Standard Among Newspapers.
Reflecting In its widening circulation
nd increasing advertising patronage
the prosperity that marks the opening
of the new year the Pittsburg Times
more than ever impresses upon Its read
ers the excellence of Its high standard
and the success of its efforts to make a
model paper for the Individual and for
the family. The Times is a newspaper,
sparing no pains nor expense to cover
the world thoroughly every day, that
Its current page of history may be com
plete and in its longer range overlook
ing nothing that occurs at home. It is
clean, dignified and reliable, certain
that no lack of these features can be
made up In offensive sensationalism. It
can be taken Into the family circle with
confidence that its columns are filled
with wholesome instruction and enter
tainment. Wherever known The
Times is recognized as the best type of
concise, crisp and complete nuwBpuper
and among newspaper men it is the
publication with which comparisons of
excellence are made. While The Times
is Republican In politics it realizes that
others have a right to bo on earth, and
that politics are not everything. When
one cent a day wilt buy a morning paper
It Is foolish to bo without one. The
Times Is three dollars a year and worth
