occurrences that make up the simple annals of the great common people who are
really the foundation of this broad country
of ours.
Scandals are seldom published in the
country newspapers, but if it so happens
that decency demands it, the uglier details
are omitted, or are given a kindly touch
that is widely different from the unfeeling
publicity of the city press. No wonder.
The offenders may be our neighbors, or
people we have rubbed elbows with all our
lives. They are real human beings, while
to the great dailies they are merely grains
of a sort that are ground out hourly in
their newsmill.--Lake Crystal Tribune.

IN MEMORIAM
TURNING from the city newspaper to
the rural exchange which comes to our
desk is like stepping from the slums full
of vile odors into an old-fashioned garden,
sweet with honeysuckle, and scent of per-
rennial flowers. The pages of the big
dailies are fo full of murder, thievery, immorality, the breaking up of homes, by in
fidelity and selfishness that the better news
is obscured. One puts the paper away
with a feeling of depression, and heartache, that the world is full of such unhappy and terrible things.
Then, picking up the papers that record the happenings of smaller towns
around ns one gains new faith in life. Here
are set forth only that which uplifts a
community���the activities of the business
men, the church news, the civic good accomplished by the women, school items,
the happy social gatherings of the people,
the marriages, births and deaths, farmers'
items, and all the thousand and one daily lines, mourning for them.
Some things are hard to realize. Perhaps the hardest of these is the fact that
intimate friends, those with whom we have
for years come in close contact and have
taken into the chamber of affection in our
heart reserved for nearest and dearest,
have suddenly passed to another sphere,
and that we shall see them no more.
The death of Freddy Dorey, Sammy
Fry and Bill Murphy leaves a vacancy in
our community life, as well as a void in
our personal collection of real friends that
will be hard to fill. Each, of course, had
his coterie of closest churns^ those for
whom the feeling of warm affection flowed
the most freely; but all possessed the collective esteem of all residents in this section.
It is some consolation to know that the manner of their death precluded any suffering on j
their part. They died instantaneously, therefore
painlessly. What happened to their bodies after
their souls had departed was of no moment to
them; but things visible to us cause suffering on
our part that they cannot possibly feel.
To surviving members of their families we
give the assurance that although they could not
be here in person to witness the last sad rites for
their dear departed, they were well represented
by practically all the residents of three  commun-
