numbor of birds aro accidentally kill

city and in all parts of tho country.

and if identified would add something
to the knowlcdgo of bird life. The
editor is oqulpped to identify almost
any bird ho can socuro and ho will

birds and put tho record in print if
the specimen is Rout to him. Novor
shoot a bird for this purposo but tako
advantage of the accidents.
Fivo cent lollypops havo como. Wo
havo been enjoying tho sight of a
bunch of school girls or boyB going
down tho street without saying a
word, each holding onto ono end of
a lollypop and sucking tho othor ond.
Thoy havo looked so happy with their
penny lumps of swootnoss. Now comes
tho fivo cont lollypop which is five
times as big and thoroforo fivo times
aa swcot as tho penny brand. They
fit somo mouths and' sbmo havo to bo
stretched. Wo wondor what tho avor
ngo chap would do with a ton cont
lollypop or If tho ll'mlt'lins now boon
ablo to got a confession from any with
Whom wo havo talked but It may be
true. Svcral times in the. past years,
citizens have suffered from tho wanton
destruction of beds of beautiful flow
ers and little blame could attach to
anyono who would glvo such mara
uders a pretty hot reception. Hun
dreds of dollars wortli of bulbs have
been planted in theso gardens and
Htill moro valuablo tEmc has boon

Tho Trlbuno does not need to bo
subsidized to glvo tho news. A church
society In this city recently camo to
us for the prices on a llttlo Job of
printing which It cxpoctod to pay for.
Wo gavo prices and later learned that
tho Job had boon placed elsewhere
Wo havo glvon that particular society
as much spaco to advertlso Its meet
ings and stippers during tho past year
as it would havo cost thorn throe
times tho -amount of tho Job and we
havo glvon It freely. Tho officers of
that socloty go on tho theory that they
will patronize tho nowspapors when
they want frco printing but will go
olsowhoro whon thoy havo a pay Job
It hurts sometimes but wo aro going
right on printing, tho news Just the
same. Wo do not hold It against the
socloty that it has that kind of of
flcials. Wo oxpoct to print tho news
for our readers regardless of tho busi
ness oiul of our shop and trust that
a llttlo light will trickle into tho dark
places. Tho Trlbuno does not need to

Someone has asked us why wo glvo
such promlnont fr6nt-pago notlco to
tho dolngu of the1 High schools, tho
scouts, tho cainpfh'e girls and sim

Wb havo told thorn that, tho doings
of tho boys and girlb aro of more sig

us older people It makes-all tho dif

Tvhethor hor young folks hold a High

Elsowhoro wo aro printing tho full
report of tho Dawson County Taxpay
ers' Leagues' special committee to in
vostlgato tho spending of tho pooplcs'
monoy. It is an interesting and in
structivo document. Thoso who have
Boon It havo Inquired why Lincoln
County taxpayers do not havo such
an investigation. There Is enough rum
org of this and that regarding tax
ation and tho oxpondituro of taxes
that would roqulro Investigation, to
glvo tho commlttoo something intor
eating to work on. Tho farmors havo
their complaints, tho laboring men
havo their grlovcncos, tho business
mon plan for tax reductions and al
most ovoryono thinks ho can seo
somothlng wrong. Thoro Is no central
authority to whom ono can go and
which is Inviting us to como. Tho
Taxpayers' League should bo organ
ized first and thon tho mombors should
havo a special committee composed
of tho most ablo and respected citi
zens of tho couiity. This commlttoo
should make such investigations ns
it soes fit and hold such public hear
ings an soom best and then mako a
report to tho Taxpayers' Loaguo. Tho
taxing bodies of schools, villages,
cities, county and stato will glvo heed
to rocommendations of such a league
it it seos fit to ask for any changes.
Porhaps things aro bolng run In Lin
coln county ns woll as thoy can bo
It would bo worth tho trouble If we
could bo cortain that is true and that
tho rumors and, charges hoard hero
and thoro aro not truo. Does Lincoln
county want such a Loaguo?
