THE MAN WHO IS MAKING GOOD.
Tlie ninn we like is the man who wins,
The man with a mijflity will,
Who plods away, through the heat of the day,
And journeys up the hill.
His is the hand we like to jfrasp,
lie is the man we would
Clasp to our breast with friendly zest
The man who is making good.
For whether it be on land or sea,
In peaeo or the bloody fray,
Tho men we cheer are the men who steer,
A sti'Hijfht-away course each day.
Not the man who falters and drops aside,
But the man who has boldly stood
In the thick of the iljrht, for tho cause of rifrht,
Tho man who is making food.
Then here's to the man, today, say I,
Who strives with a heart of steel,
With his red blood warm in bis manly form
Though envy's at. his heel;
Ye-, Imre's to t lie man who toils riffht on,
T!HMt;;h lie is misunderstood, (
1 pinko my bow to him riffht now,
The rutin who is making good.
THE COL'NTKY NEWSPAPER AS AN AID TO THE
HOME MERCHANT. '
Wesley A. Stanger, editor of the Office Outfitter,
Chicago, recently made an address before of body a re
tailers in which he called attention to the value of the
local newspaper. He said in part:
The local newspaper is the greatest thing the re
. tailor has if he will use it right, but a large proportion
are too prone to believe that the editor will take care of
their interests whether' they look after his or not. This
is wrong. If merchants, as a class, would only take
advantage of the opportunities that the local newspapers
afford them, they would reap rewards for beyond their
While self preservation is the first law. of nature,
editors of local papers have a habit of letting self-interests
go to the limit when it comes to a question of serving the
community, For this they are entitled to recognition,
which they rarely receive.
No doubt the retailers have encouraged th'em as faras
sentiment goes. They have undoubtedly said that they
approved of the editer's methods and called him "good
boy," but in how many cases have they fallen short in the
real encouragement that counts? How often have they
neglected to use his columns, thinking that they were
clever in it? In fti'ling to patronl.e him they have too
often killed tho goo.s.' that laid the golden egg.
You must, get behind the local editor and push for all
you are worth. He gives you two dollars bock for every
dollar you invest with him. He furnishes for you at his
own expense one of tho biggest assets you possess; the
medium through which to let the people know what
you have to sell. Within recent years the mail-order
proposition has been somewhat bothersome. The editors
of the country papers have done more than all other
influences combined to win business back into normal
channels and to reconvert the farmer to the logical belief
in home trading.
Tha country editor refuses .to take profits from your
enemy, when the encrriy will pay him more than you will.
He refuses to accept business from the mail order store In
the distant city, and even goes further by telling how
superior the local store is to the distant one, and detailing
the advantages of buying at home.
Do not let it be said in your community that you
have let your editor's work go unappreciated. Use his
paper. Make him prosperous and yourself rich doing it.
If you have foolish ideas about the no-productiveness of
newspaper advertising, throw them off and try it out.
One try will prove nothing, but the constant use of the
paper in an intelligent manner will produce the results.
The best friend any business man in the world has,
next.to his wife, is the local newspaper, and if he doesn't
get .full value for this friendship it is his fault, not the
editor's. Tho editor of tho average so-called country
paper has done more to upbuild his town and the retailers
in it than all other influences combined, and it also
follows that as an almost unbroken rule he is the least
appreciated person in his community.
In conclusion Mr. Stanger said that the country
newspaper man does not ask for charity, but stands ready
to repay the merchant "00 per cent, on every dollar
properly spent in advertising.
WHAT THE COOH ROAD MEANS.
Congressman Scott Ferris of Oklahoma in an
enthusiastic address on the subject of good roads uttered
Good roads bring the products of tho mine and forest
to the factory door.
Good roads bring thrift to the farmer and thrift to
the consumer and wealth to tho nation.
Good roads make farm life pleasant and profitable and
enhance its usefulness.
Good roads bring us more rural routes will bring us
better ones and more efficient ones.
They make better homes, happier firesides, more
They distribute the products of the mine, the forest
and the factory.
They are the avenues of progress and the highest and
best proof of the intelligence we enjoy.
They patronize the railways and the waterways you
have appropriated for so lavishly.
Highways, I tell you, sir, are not the property of one
class of men, but are the property and interest of every
one, whether he be black or white, educated or uneducat
ed, weak or strong, high or low, savage orcivilized. They
are, I tell you, the property of us all, and we should all
aid in their upbuilding.
If at any time you. fail to receive your copy of the
Star, report the same to this office and a new copy will be
sent. For some reason an unusal number of papers seem
to have gone astray in the mails recently.

STOKE &TEICHT DRUG STORE
Is not a sinecure by any means. Much experience and an unusual degree
of shrewdness are lridecpensable prerequisites in the conducting -of a hieh-class
pharmacy, even more so than in any other retail business because the drug
business has more pitfalls than any other. Knowledge of these pitfalls is just as
necessary as is the determination to keep out of them, for while a man may
honestly resolve to conduct an ANo 1 drug store still he cannot do so if he does
not know all the ins and outs of the drug trade.
Thorough drug training, extensive drug store experience and practical knowl
edge of the drug trade enable us to maintain the standard of this pharmacy at the
highest possible point of efficiency .
