MAKE x'OUR DISTRICT KNOWN. Concerning some parts of tlio clis Irict news comes but seldom. This is not entirely our fault ; we have no miraculous power of knowing what is happening at all the places within our area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. • Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease. If no one is doing it for your district, will you try on these lines? Send accounts of public and social events ill your township and neigh borhood, such as weddings, deaths, accidents, concerts, matters touching district industries, etc. Write the names of persons very distinctly. Don't bother about grammar or spelling ; it's the editor's work to look alter those trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. Write only 011 one side of the paper.. Giveinformation; but let criticism alono. Write your name and address on same corner—not for publication, but to prove good faith.
