The city folks don't seem to mind the tiucks and cars knocking ever the 1 pavement but out in the country a little bird will keep them awake. Seme people can't seem to understand that whenever you get a new . appropriation cat of the government, a new adauion to tne tax mu comes along to ray for it. If the people of Fairmount who lamant the weedy condition of their grounds, would pull up one weed whenever they cross their lawn, their place would soon be covered by nice silky grass. o THE UBIQUITOUS TIN CAN. The American tin can has been a great convenience to the housewife, and has saved many food costs. But the disposition cf these cans is a problem. Seme people, make heaps of them in their back yard where they disf gure a whole neighborhood. Others dump them along country roads where they spoil rural scenery. The city of Havre, Montana, decided that it wanted a canlcss community. So they etTcred two cents a can for all old ones delivered to a designated place. Many boys and girls went into the business of picking them up. As a result 63,700 cans were collected, at a cost of $103.60 besides something for trucking. When you clean nearly 70,000 cans out cf a community and dispose of them in seme place whre they will be out of sight, you have made a tremendous gain in the appearance cf that town. o CIVIC ORGANIZATION WORK. In a business men's organisation or civic progress society, one of the chief problems is how to win the attention and secure the co-operation cf the most forceful personalities cf the community. "The Nation's Business" magazine, deseribir.e the work of a commercial organization secretary, remarks that "much of his time is spent in talking with drifters into the office, which is the reeocTiized place for such citizens as have little to do and much to say Such persons have time on their hands, and are full cf suggestions cf things that ought to be done. Many of their suggestions are good. But to get thines done, it takes a different type of people. You could not per suade these talkers to serve on a The Fairinount New ! ? ; ; FOR SALE FOR SALE Blue plums and apples. Milton T. Cox, Thone 2732 Red. FOR -SALE Cottage 1621 Red. cheese.

Elbert Locke, eight year old son of , Mr. and Mrs. Robert Locke, of North Main street, sustained painful and severe injuries Saturday evening when he was struck by an automobile on East Washington street, driven by I Charles York. The lad was walking '. along the street with some older boy?, ; when he made an attempt to playfully ; trip one ef his companions. To get t away from the older boy as he grab- j bed at him, Elbert dashed into the street. Seeing the auto aproaching he stopped quickly, but doing so, stum- bled anel fell. Mr. York was driving ! slowly, but was unable to entirely ' stop his car before he struck the lad. as he was attempting to rise from where he had fallen. The hub of one front wheel struck the boy, giving him some painful bruises. Either by being hit by the machine or in his fall he also sustained a badly sprained ankle. He was hurried to the office of Dr. Aldrich where his injuries were given attention, and he was then taken te his home. FAMILY REUNIONS FOR NEAR FUTURE.

Rimilarlv tin irl who has mined some club for canning or other domes- . tic arts, comes to feel pride in the aehievements of the country house-4 wife. Sh? sees that skill and effici- ency produce wonderful results in ' managing a country home, and she has little desire for the coor-ed up life ' of city factories and offices. o Home Town Business Pleasing the Home Folks A great deal of very second rate merchandise is being distributed in these times. The best way to avoid being disappointed by imperfect goods is to buv merchandise of your home stores, which feel personally respon-s He to thoir local public for the delivery of satisfactory values. If you go into a store in some strange city, the salespeople del not have a personal interest in you, and feel less concern to make sure that you are supplied merchandise of first class character. Also in a large city store, there is not so much feeling of rcsponsiblity for the quality of goods. There are many careless and extravagant people in large cities, who elo not care much whether goods give satisfaction or not. What they want is something that will look pretty and stylish and last a little while. If it has not substantial value, they don't care much, because they keep buying new stuff anyway. A large part cf the stock of big city stores is selected to please such peeple, rather than those who want quiet an ; substantial goods. Furthermore, the big city store does not sutTer as soon if it distributes poor goods. People do not return goods as much as they will to a store in a smaller place. It is more bother to ae geods back. In a town, like Fairmount, however, the store that distributes anything: defective hears from it in a very short time. It simply has to make good on its merchandise, or it would be overwhelmed with complaints. The DINNER STORIES J LoU-s C. Minette, accepted for en- i lament in the United Ttates marine at Tulsa, Okla., recently, said that his mother was an American who maried a Frenchman in Italy. ne was tjorn on a snip flying the ; Sr,., colors while Iving in the ; English channel.

"Man without a country nothing:,' j said the sergeant. "I'd class him as a League of Nations. If you struck one of those golf balls and hit a man in the eye, what would you do? asked the man who was interested in first aid to the injured.

Anderson and Marion Truck Express wants your stock and overland hauling to Indianapolis 45c per Hundred leaders who would be willing to give time to public work. Many business men heln out such movements a lot by letting their office help do some of the clerical tasks thereof. But for the actual work of arousing the pub- lie and soliciting co-operation, it is commonly necessary, to depend on young hustlers who have their repu- tation to make. Elderly people who have never done anything but talk nave proved a aeaa weignr on many civic efforts. Our civic organizations in Fair-mount should be looking all the time for young people and newcomers who are willing to give time to public causes. Community work brings many rewards, and it helps ambitious young paople to make friends and create a place for themselves in the community. BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS When the leaders of rural progress began to organize calf and pig clubs, etc., among the boys, and canning clubs among the girls, few people dreamed of the importance of the movement. Formerly boys and girls felt they had no interest In the development of , a rural home. They should perhaps have argued that as they are getting their hoard and clothes free, they ought to be willing to work as hard Special Notice To .Tonarisfts - Special low rate excursion to Niagara Falls, N.
