Williams, who has been In charge of the circulation of the Oail^ Register for nearly 18 years, has tendered- his resignation to take effect January 28. For several years, as Registti* readers know. Mr. Williams has been engaged in the typewriter biffiiness as a side line and his Interests in this direction have grown to such an extent that'he wishes to give his entire time to it and for that reason has asked to-^ be .released from his engagementSi -ith the Register. • . It is -with a great deal of relifc- tande that the Register parts coin- pany with Mr. Williams. During the eighteen j-ears- ot bis connec- t.ion with the paper there has never been a cross ox unkind word between Mm and "bis employer nor a moment of misunderstanding of any kind. During those years also Mr. W^illiams has gained and held Instill nwre. Certainly the manage- the confidence: of tha Register subscribers and has so cultivuted the field tbi|t the. Register prolMbly -Jhas the most stable circulation of any newspkper in its class anywhere. His greatest success, perhaps, has been in the mana^ment of hfai force of carriers. It is' the boast of the Register that on the average there Is not one "miss" a day—a re<.-ord which'no other pa-^ per within our knowledge has ever equalled-r-^ud this is due in large measure to. the good Judgment Mr. Williams has used in the selection of his f:^rriers and to' the^ manner in whicb he has won their loyalty and gooii jwill. He Is a father to them rather tl^n an emplpyer, and with th^ wannheartediiess of childho^4 they recipro<:;ate the treatmcjnt they receive from him. It is aitnatter oT great satisfac- tioir to the Register that Mr. Williams I: to remain in ][ola. for be is a go >d citizen as - well is; a faitbfiH employee. He is generous and piriil^c spirited, .^Iways willing to do tnything he can do for the general welfare, and always standin: r loyally by the town. He has conferred a real service in building Hip his typewriter business to Isirge proportions, and now' that he. can. demote hls-ieatlre. time to it he doubtless win expand it ing record, wop this coveted hon-| or. ' • ; "These achibvement.s. while noteworthy, are not the-end in tbem- selves, but simply avmeans to an end. The real object of'dairy club work is to . demonstrate correct dairy practices; to sbpw that goi>d animals, good methods and good feeding pays; that boys and girls and men as well, can take* good dairy animala and make a success ot dairyingr Incidentally, these boys and girls are learning to Judge livestock, to lit and show them,' tc feed them correctly, and to' keep accurate records so that they miay know what they are doing. The greatest benefit without doubt is the training in citizenship and leadership which each member is acqiiiring. "And so the A-H dairy cliib members of Allen county are doing their part to solve the dairy problems of the'county. \\'hen'they shall have graduateil into the fleld of. adult farmlng.r dairying In AUen county will have the leadership to make greater and surer progress."
