If vou have been an observer of things westward and understand west- ern conditions, it is possible that you may appreciate thoroughly the rapidity with which some towns and cities come into exist- ence, and rapidly attain promi- nence by their remarkable growth. In older communities, we know and you know, that towns which have been on the map all the way from twenty-five to fifty years have remained quietly unobserved so far as at- tracting the attention of the out- aide world. Some of these towns we know have gained in population and in material ad- vancement. They have good schools, churches and commun- ities of people with good sociable well-to-do citizens, and their method of consuming a lifetime ' to build a town may be compati- ble with the nature of taose per- . sons living ...

We have never been given credit for being extremely in- dustrious; in fact, we have been accused by those who possibly think themselves in a position to know that we are, when it comes to a matter of work, invariably disinclined. However that may be, there is one thing we have never been accused of, and that is lingering in the midst of a community which has not life enough to scratch. Personally, if we have had an antipathy for work, we have at least always at- tempted to associate with those who would get up and go, and who, by their own nush, .vim and enthusiasm,would carry us along in front of the crowd. It may be that we are rather impatient with the manner in which older commbnities choose to build for themselves their cities. If they are satisfied, of course we should be; but we cannot...

Mr. Percy Saiat Clair, repre- senting a syndicate of eastern newspapers, arrived in the city of Shafter Lake about the first of July. The purpose of his vis- it to our midst was to obtain some western stories for the syndicate which he represents, and incidently, as he expressed it, to catch a glimpse of the last west and of the fleeting frontier. Since coming among us he has ingratiated himself into the good graces of our citizens and of our exclusive society, and he has added much to the entertain- ment and to the edification of all those with whom he has come in contact.

By the way, did you ever stop to realize that there is nothing more uncertain than a sure thing? It's a fact. A minister says that "Hell is filled with peek-a-boo waists." That may be one reason whv some male sinners don't try to reform. There was a $100,000 lard fire in Dallas a few nights ago. It is reported the flremen did "slick" work, but the flames were so 4'hoggish" it was impossible to check 'em. There have been several ar- rests of late of parties who drank intoxicants on the train. If you want to keep out of trouble, don't thus violate the law. If you've got to drink, just imagine the train is a "water wagon" and fall off. John Sharp Williams was final- ly declared the n...

When his product is finished, it is hung in some gallery and ad- mired by thousands, but appreciated by very few. Those few appreciate, to the-fullest extent, the long, tedious days it required to perfect every detail of the wonderful little masterpiece. This illustration goes to show that the eastern mind can lose itself by concentrating upon one specific thing. The manner in which the Japan...

It is good to live in a town where there is something doing, and where there is something doing every minute. It may be that we have spent a portion of our life bacK in one of the older communities where it was con- sidered good form to take a year to make up your mind, but from now on we hope to be able to al- ways live in a community where they do things. Since coming west a good many years ago, we have seen a good many towns placed upon the map; have watched them for awhile; some have attained an enviable place in the affairs of the commercial world and of mankind, while others have sunk into oblivion. But, as said be- fore, it is good to live in this com- munity; in a community where the ringing of the hammer and the humming of the saw are as sweet music as they are wafted across the prai...
