The affairs of a . mall in that they do not come in town should be intrusted to l)ub- pow-,r and demonstration" but lie sp:rited, unselfish men, who are rather like the thief in the will always and under all eircum- night, stances work for the makihg of Few only of the townfolks here a bigger town. are perhaps aware of this pend- rne vgters of this tow, ill be ing ealanfity, for several reasons. The first and most infamous rea- son being that municiple govern- ment has always been kept in control of a few iniated, who are regarded and regard themselve, as most eminently fitted to con- trol local affairs. This presump tion should be corrected because in many places these petty e'iqu- es are often execrated because they proceed to do their usurping work in such a clandestine man- ner. It would be much better at this date if the people of a community would be apprised of these public matters in due time, so that in mass assembled, they might be consulted regardinu their choice of town official . It would not be a bad idea if in all towns of every size an election proclamation would have to be announced in due time to inform all citizens regarding their mu- nicipal affairs. Secondly. This same class of demagogues very often contem- plate the arbitrary control of their community. That only which enhances their interests is con- sidered. Either their direct or indirect advantage is reckoned with at any expense. The public wealth is not respected, for with the high-handed, low.bred dun- geon demagogue everything goes that will perpetutate his laower md interest. They may prate at times of democracy and freedom, but their underhanded devices prove their pmfidy. Thirdly. By keeping the mas- ses in iunorance about the munic- ipal affairs, the state maker can work without let or hindrance. This is always done either with- out or with opposition. Some- times the work of the petty ty- rants becomes so obnoxious and offensive that the better element or at least the citizens who will not be arbitraily ruled, are forc- ed to oppose this kind of gang rule by counter stating. Invari ably this brings to a climax the smoldering distrust and dissatis. faction-of the con'tendi,g ele- ments and open opposition is pre, cipitated, this always resulting in tbe forming Of hostile factions which could hardly be induced to co-operate for the good of a community. Ever after, what- e'er is done by one party is de- nounced by the oth .r. No har- monic co-operation for the gener- al good can exist. Policies and purposes are defeated that might add to the common profit or corn- tort of the communitv, P.ot be- cause they are essentially bad, but because they are iqiated by a faction. How much better, if in small places men could be big enough to be unselfish and serve the public and con mon good, rather than to be subservient to a pernicious selfishness that in. sists upon rule or ruin. A small town does always have abundant material of suit- able persons to be the servants of that town. There may be the proper man for each several place. Tnerefore it is the duty of each citizen of that town to forget the personal feeling that might predjudice him and look ta the qualification of the person for the particular service he is render to the community. It is more of a job to superintend well the affairs of a small town so called upon soon to select the ticl etthat will constitu e their municipal representatives for the next two years. It will be well for tl em to consider well the spirit and qualification of ttm men they elect to office. There is no benefit and but little glory in a petty to n office, but there is large responsibility. You should vote for the man who will help to make a better town. And you vote, remembQr that the hub. it and ambition of your candidate is the measure of his greatness. -Depew Independent. Obituary.

The most "effective ] way exterminating the flY, ac-I cording to the bulletin, is to erad- icate his breeding places. The breeding season of the fly begins 'l ear y in March and continues throughout the spring and sum- mer months. All dirt should be removed from the premises, stab- t les cleaned and decaying vege-:i tables destroyed. The fly has been rightly called the undertaker's traveling saies- man. and in addition to his regu- lar line of "typhoid bug," he carries a sideline of tubercio is, Asiatic Cholera and other d'meued germs.
