Send accounts of public and social events in 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 atter those trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. Write only on one side of the paper. Give information; but let criticism alone. Write yonr name and address on same corner—not for publication, but to prove good faith.
