An lola lumber dealer states tbat there Is more iraproviijg going on la the country than In towns In the war of building which calls for lumber. Houses are being enlarged.and repaired and improved and new barns and ahods are boing erected. There Is a strong and stoudy demand for lumber for this work. He oxplulns it on the ground that Allnn County farmers never boforo enjoyed such presperlty na they huvi^ this year. Prom th» Ifsllroonv of trnvellng men who rover »i 'v »-ral states including Kansas, ADi-n cuuiity was iiRCuIlarly blessed in the mtit(i-r of rainfall last summer, not g<-ttltiK nil it needed but g'^ttlnK much mnn' than any dther sf»ctlon. Tim result was n fair hay crop, u good corn rrnp and average yield of other crops. Corn at CO cents In the field and hay nt $11 a ton mean big monr>y to the farmer, and the general fuilur<> has doubled the value of th<> Allin county crop. ft Is certainly a matter for general rejoicing that the farmors are gathering both a big and a valuable iiur- vest. They earned it. WHT THE DlFFERE>rE. Editor of the lola Register. Dear Sir:' "Wo notice whenevpr a man or a woman is caught violating the prohibitory law he or she is talcen into court and if found guilty a heavy fine and costs is assessed, and some one of your many reporters reports the same to your paper and the public Is Informed how mean he or she is. One day recently a great big hurley man went to the home of a negro man on North Buckeye and Insulted his wife with Indecent words. The wife resented the insult by shutting a door in his- face. The htisband appeared on the scene at whose sight the intruder ran, but the husband pursued and captured him aiud with a brickbat and a gun marched the big burley Intruder through the square and delivered him to the chief of police. He was taken into the city court and plead guilty to the charge. And our Good Judge fined him only ten dollars. This man was not a burley negro but a burley white and has a "wife and six children we are told. He violated the moral law and yet he was allowed to escnpo with a fine of only ten dollars. WTiy the difference. And yet Jlr. Editor one of your roporters was in court and heard or could have heard tho whole case and we failed to see one line of n- formation to the public of this case. Why was the reporter ashamed iv Inform the public that a white man had descended so low as to try to bre.ik Into tho sanctity of a negroe's home or did ho mean to be partial as a ro- Dorter. Now Mr. Editor If this notorious outrage was ri-versed can we hc- Uevp that the Judgo of our city would liavo allowrd the nrcro to go wltii a fine of \fn dollars, and that your n-- nnrtor woiilil bavo failed to Inform the public of tlic facts well stretchpd nut? Now Mr. Editor we b'^lieve as we hink that all fair and Impartial men and women will agree that the negro m:'.n did his duty, but our City Judge and your rejiorttT failed in theirs. Respectfully J.

Willie the Register's regular circulator Is making bfs annual tour ot the luuiity >><illcltinK KubFcriptlonH, the office deKlreH to do all It can to aid liliii. Till- following timely wurnlng, found In the Neudciiha ReglNter, re- <liiir<-K no clmnKu for UKU In itils pajiup and IK offiircd now that all who read may ]irutect themselves: "Don't borrow tbe j)ui^?r from your neighbors. It Is dangerous to' borrow. A man who was too economical to subsuHbo for his home paper sent his little boy to borrow the copy taken by his neighbor. In his haste the boy ran over a )4.00 stand of bees and In ten minutes looked like a warty summer squash. His cries reached bis father, who ran to his assistance and failing to notice a barbed wire fence, ran Into that breaking it down, cuttins: a handful of flesh from his anatomy and ruining bis I4.0O pair of pants. The old cow took advantage, of the gap in tbe fence and got Into' the corn field and killed herself eat- In? green corn. Hearing the racket, the' wife ran, up-set a four-gallon churn full of rich cream into a basket of kittens, drowning the entire lltte'r. In the hurry she dropped a 123.00 set of false teeth. The baby, left aldme crawled through the spilled milk and Into the parlor, ruining a brand new $20.00 carpet. During the excitement the eldest daugbter ran away with the hir«d man, the dog broke up eleven setting hens, and the calves got out and chewed tbe tails off four fine shirts. It is dangerous to borrow. Better have your name enrolled for the Register at once." Tho foroRoInK lettor, vrihen in tho riirif of co(ir(<'sy and Tn'ir t>hiy thnt marks everyOiini; Dr. Bass says .TIKI does. Is entitled to a candid reply On its face it makes out a stronu cttsp sainst the Repister, and that i.s another reason why It deserves reply. The question as to how far ii shall go in puhlishinK names in eonnprtion with its reports of any scandal or crime, is one of the most perplexlnc hat comes to any newspaper which rf'a'Iy w.ints to sorvo the public nnd at the s,ime time be fair ,ind conslder- te to fhe individual. Thi Register, for itself, has settled that question upon this broad line: When the publication of all the facts in a given case, inchiding names and other d< talis, would do more good than harm, they will be published. That Is tn sar.- if the public benefit -which will follow the publication, by way of wnrnlng to others or by-way of putting the tiebple on gtiard, clearly overbalances the harm which might come to the guilty person by reason of mak Ing his transgression known, then surely It is the duty of a paper to .print the facts. But when the altus- tion Is reverted. When no good, or but llrtle good could come to the public, and great harm would certainly come to the Individual, then It would aei >m as If the paper Is warranted In keening silence. The Reglsler Is quile ready to admit that It may not h;(v/» lived up to this rule •^f oetlon In every case; but ft hns irfed to do so. It certainly has never drawn the col-, or linn In snch matters. Now as to the particular case which nr. Gall rites: Tbe Register has BK ways given full publicity to violations of tho prohibitory Jaw tor the reason that, In its Judgment such pub llclty tends to lessen -the crime. Sui>- poBc no mention were made in these columns of. the arrest and punishment of lointlstB or boot leggers: Would not some men be tempted to go Into tbat business nnder the im- nresslon tbaf It Is nat Interfered with? Is It not poealble tffat some men are kept oot of the business who would be wfillnK to risk the courts but wuold not risk baring their name spread all OTer the conn:ry In connection with Rich a crime? Furthermore, the men usually convicted o( this offense are usually habitual criminals and as such are entitled to little consideration. • '' But In the other case: "The big burley white man," as the Doctor describes him, came to this office after the police court had dismissed him, and begged that his name be kept out of the paper. He did not mention the fact tbat his offense had been com mitted against a negro woman, and that fact V &B not known in this office unfl the above commani«iation was •received. He Ci& not deny tbat he had used offensive lan.q,uage, but he conimlUed no other crime. He pleaded for consideration on the se6r.« that If the facts were-published it would not only ruin his standing with the D'-opIc but would probably brr:ik up his home. He was, admonished, of course, tbe timo to have thouiiht of all those things was before be got into trouble; and tli;it he freely .ncknowlr-dged. Plainly the man wa.s not .1 habitual criminal. Plainly no public good would beaccomplish'^d by publishing the story of his offense. Plainly a great deal of individual harm would come of such publication, not only to the man in the case and his family, but also'to the woman whom he had insulted and her family. —for if the whole story had been told her name would have been a part of H jiDd t 'lc notoriety would not have been pU<asant. And so, not because he was a white man and she a colored woman, but wholly because It woiild have done the public no good whiH) it would have done individuals,—somh of them entirely Innocent,—much harm, the Register did not say a word about it. And we believe that is -what the good Doctor would have done if the case had been put up to hitn, —What would be more appropriate for a Christmas present—nothing under the sun—than a fine Photo of the latest and most up-to-date style.— Hnffman Studio. A BAG' CJIEWIJVG CONTEST. Hoy.« at Theatre I'rrarheil a .Sermon to Their Elders. Tho Civic AVolfaro Lea.s;ue would scf-m to owe a vote of thanks to the management of the Majestic llnoitre for a very forcible illustration givon there tho other night of how silly .*ind disgusting the "rag chewing' iiah It Is.

Jn the center of tho cloth was a piece of candy and the boy who "chewed up" his end of the "rag" first and mouthed the can dy won a prize. Of course, only a boy with a boiler plate stomach could hold a mouthful of rag without gagging, and they busily crumbled the cloth In their teeth and-stored it away In the mow of their mouths. WTien one was near the saccharine goal tho gave a yank on the cloth, at one stroke undoing the other's labor and yanking several feet of moist, ccrfd cloth from his reluctant mouth. rei>- resentlng just so much damp trouble to be asaln masticated.
