Wo held ititerviuwH with nearly all
our business men this week and I hey
all assure us that their Christmas
trade was tlio largest of all years.
Notwithstanding the fears of last Au

abovo the average ami our fat mors have
plenty of money, Hod (Jlotid is a good
place to trade. Our utcichituls are
proving right along that bettor values
can hi: secured light here than in oth
er places and that a dollar will buy
more in our mai Uets than in any of
our large cities. This is it good show
ing and as long ns our, business men
give Hie values that they do trade will
be attracted to our town.
This city ought to make u few New
Year's resolutions. Wo ought to learn
to respect tin; views of our neighbors.
We ought to net In our municipal af
fairs with more unanimity. We ought
to find out what the most of us want
and then carry out tlio wishes of the
majority and all join In and help, We
ought to elect a lull setof city ollltilals
in whom we have the contldeuee that
they will conduct an economical utile

sist that business men accept ollices.
There are a number of other things
we ought to do but the most important
one of all Is that we net in harmony.
We need to get together and not us a

Happy New Year, To Our
"A Happy Now Year" dear old town
itejoico in all thy ways
For happy years have come and gone
Wltli brief and fleeting days.
Years we've watched thy growth
In numbers and in wealth:
In lovely homes, and lovlier trees;
In cleanliness and health.
In pretty st roots and shady parks
Where birds their carols slnir.
And sunbeams play the livelong day
And joys supernal bring.
Tlio crystal water that we drink,
Springs from the heart of Karth:
As ceaseless ns a woman's love,
Wherever it has birth.
Our men are those of enterprise,
Of gumption, grit and grace.
Who believe in good improvements
Should have no second place.
Our boys will average well with boys
hleady, staid and true.
With tact and purpose well in hand
Tho light they will pursue,
Our girls! Ah, heaven bless them,
No better anywhere,
They're the kindliest, and sweetest
And fail est of tho fair.
Our babies and our little girls;
Our mothers and our wives,
Are beautiful to look upon;
Are lovely in their lives
Our schools all stand without a peer;
ith promise great in store,
Whore "Cho8tortield''is taught as well
As Greek, or Latin lore.
This leads to the higher schools;
Our churches where the soul
Is fed from God's own gratiories
And broken lives made whole.
1 ho guardian angles of our homes.
Where faith and charity
Arc taught to bless ami lit us for
A bright eternity.
