ADVERTISING RAT S ON APPLICATION Q Real Town Pride It takes something more than mere satisfaction in the community in which one lives as a place to live and earn one's living- something more than merely speaking of it as a good town-- to make one a good citizen and real supporter of a community. Real town pride consists in taking pride in a community, its-citizenship and its various institutions--in support- ing them, upholding them or trading with them. People don't think much of residents of any community who will not patron- ize nor support home institutions. Leave out the matter of pride alto- gether. If you are earning your living in Monroe, or any other town, and spend your money at home for what you can get at home that is satisfac- tory, the money you spend at home will likely come back to you again. Money you spend out of town is gone--gone entirely out of your reach and out of reach of every other resident of the same community. In this town, as in most others, there are machine shops, glove factories, cigar factory, printing offices, laun- dries, and other small manufacturing institutions that are earning livlihoods for several families each. Is it good policy--is it a matter of town pride--is it to your interest, to support and pat- ronize them or supply your needs in the different lines represented by sending your money out of town? Is that the way to build up a town? Is that the way to increase the scope and business of your own institution whatever it may be? Persons who live in the town through the earnings made by connec- tion with those institutions make the town better for you and better for everyone else. They spend their money with you and with others. Do you want to see them prosper or do you want to see the town in which you live get a black eye by provin disloyal enough towards its home institutions to prevent them from succeeding. Just recently a Snohomish laundry has commenced running a wagon up here. Is there any too much business for the local laundry which employs steadily a fair amount of labor? There is work in other lines going out of town that should be done at home. There is quite a lot of shopping done away that might just as well be done at home if every shopper had the real Monroe spirit and believed in supporting his or her own town and not helping to build up Snohomish, Everett or Seattle. Within the past two weeks there have been representatives here of three dif- ferent out-of-town printing concerns, each of whom undoubtedly got some business. Don't you know that the local offices can do just as good work and cheaper than you can get away? The secretary of one secret society re- cently sent to Tacoma and spent $5.00 for a thousand letterheads and paid the exPress on them when he could have gotten better work and better stock at home for $4.50. Does that kind of ac- tion help the town or help the building up of its secret orders? It isn't pleasant to write in this way.

All these concerns will stay right along here and make a living but how much pleasanter and satisfactory all around it would be if the proprietors could feel that they had the support of all resi- dents here and that they could go ahead and plan and work for bigger things instead of having to hustle so :hard at home for the trade that Should be given them willingly. Wisconsin Way Safe It is not claimed for the progressive cause in Wisconsin that it has attained its final destiny; that it has settled all the questions that vex and trouble thoughtful people everywhere, and cause unrest even among the poor rich. But we do know we have achieved cer- tain things. We know that government has been made representative--truly representa- tive. We do know that the dire pre- dictions which alarm honest business in Wisconsin have proven false; that cap- ital has not fled from the state, but is more secure than elsewhere; that state banks, subject to state regulation, are safe, failure is unknown; that the street car, the interurban, the gas, ! electric light and water rates are under- going regulation and reduction, and yet, because we have stability, the bonds of all our public utilities are selling higher in the markets than those in other states; that railroad rates have been re- duced, the service regulated, the com- plaints of shippers adjusted, and yet the railroads in Wisconsin are more prosperous than in other states because a sense of security prevails everywhere and every producer, every manufactur- er, knows that his competitors within the scope of state regulation enjoy no secret favor or advantage. The old feeling of class antagonism and distrust is fast giving place to peace, confidence and prosperity. ROBERT M. LAFOLLETTE. Just now if we read the newspapers we find that vexvtng; even what the fathers did needs repairing. The trouble is that these new architects who want to make over the country have never yet shown certificates that they are competent to the task. Our country was founded in liberty and in righteousness, the thought in the minds of the fathers being that it should be the most free" under the law, the most just to its own people and to the world, and to carry with it more blessings than any other land that ever was rounded into a nation on this old earth before. And that ideal should be im- pressed more and more upon the people every year. Let us each year make it still greater. When that comes to be a rule, then all will be working to make it greater and small politicians will pass away, and the glory will culminate in a Republic more splendid than the world ever dreamed of before.--Goodwin's Weekly. A western railroad president has or- dered the trainmen to cut out waving hands and 'kerchiefs at farmers' daugh- ters having their habitat along the right- of-way. Now, in enforcing this edict, it is a serious question whether it would he better to put a detective in every engine-or station one in each house. The trouble with the latter plan would be that the watcher, himself, would doubtless fall a victim to the fair rural charmers, in which case--but what's the use to try to forecast all the trouble this puissant railroad monarch is bringing on himself in trying to sub- due the ancient art of flirting--Arling- ton times. $100 Reward, $100.

After that life is merely waiting with more or less of patience until the end. Any way you look at it life is bond- age. because you can't get away from it.

The horseshoe may bring good luck, but not to the horse that lost it. Many a cold proposition has precipi- tated a hot discussion.

HOW TO DESTROY THE COMMON ANTS Common ants are becoming a serious )est, both in-doors and out-doors, in many parts of the state. The entomo- logist of the State Experiment Station, at Pullman, gives the following advice as to methods of controlling, or combat- ting, them: The surest way of preventing injury by ants is to destroy their nests. Usu- ally the nests can he readily found, but if there is any difficulty, a little watch- ing of where the ants travel will show where the nest is located. If the nests are out in the field, punch a few holes with a stick in the nests and place a couple of tablespoons of carbon dis- ulphide in each hole, covering up im- mediately with the foot so as to throw a capping of dirt into the hole. The fumes of carbon disulphide are very heavy and will rapidly pass through the nests,.filling all the chambers and suf- focating the ants. This liquid can be purchased at the drug store." Care must be taken in using it as it is ex- tremely inflammable like gasolene. This method answers much better than using ashes or boiling water, which are usually unsuccessful in ex- terminating the ants. Ants in houses can be trapped to a sponge moistened with sweetened water. When many ants congregate on the sponge they can be destroyed by a little boiling water from the teaket- tle. If ants crawl up fruit trees and des- troy the blossoms or young shoots they can be kept from doing this by tying a fluffy band of cotton around the trunks. Ants will not walk over fluffy cotton unless they are very much excited. "Twelve Stori/: of SolidCom rt A restful bed, good meals, aosolute security and convenient location.
