Romembor to got your dates right.
The Ciiikk is now twenty-eight years
old and commences tho new century
with Its lirst issue of the twenty-ninth.
Wo wish our patrons nnd readers a
happy New Year Wo are going to
makj you no promises. Promises are
too easily broken. But on the begin
ning of this new century and new year,
you. and each of you can do something
to tht betterment of your city and its
citizens. In tho past tho Ciiikk has
erred, you have erred. (Sot that littlo

spark of manhood or womanhood left
that like tho drooping roso only noeds
to bo nurtured to make it nnco more a
thing of lifo and bonuty. Remember
you havo children of your own, nnd
how littlo you know tho coming of to
morrow may bring to them. If you
nro in business, if you are a citizen bo
gin right by giring your novsuapers a
holping hand with your business, sub

ing morn completely takes tho snap
out of tho avorngo newspaper than a

of whom tho paper is printed So noth
ing so puts n paper upon its nerve, nnd
makes it rusllo harder, or do it more
cheerfully, than a littlo financial evi.
dencn that somebody is looking on
with a degreo of juet appreciation.
Thero isn't a more certnin evidence of
a dead community than n sleepy news
paper, and when a capitalist sends to n
postmaster for 1 simple copy of "your
best newspapei" ho is thinking of in
vesting, and saves himself the trouble
andcxpenso of a journey by sending
for a newspaper and judging tho town
by that. And ho can generally do it
better by that means than by a person

tell him tho truth nnd re floe t tho outer-
priso of tho community upon its face,
the real estate man nnd speculator who
will buttonhole him if ho comes may
not bo so honest. One of tho most
effective ways to boom a town is to
liberally patronize its newspapers. In
fact, no community can prosper until
it decides and nets upon that policy.
