of over six years Every readerof The News is acquainted with its efforts to arouse and keep living a public spirit that builds broad ens and develops Its columns are wide open for contributions tending to advance our moral in ti tellectual and commercial condi tions We have sought to make it the medium through which the people of this and adjoining coun ties could come closes together to see the many advantages blessings and privileges that should be enjoyed in such a fa vored land to have every one see the great possibilities within the grasp of united and persistent ef fort and not only to see but pos sess and enjoy We believe in an active progressive life to leave the world better in every avenue than did those who preceded us We take the position that no one has a moral right to exhaust the land to destroy the forests or otherwise impoverish the country 7 for a purely selfish purpose and insist that every person should rh aid in making his country better There are two interests only pri vate and public yourself and your neighbor and the two ought to be in harmony Your private inter ests are yours to direct free and unmolested but public duty is often circumscribed by the edicts of legislative bodies and enforced through executive channels To live within the limits of lawgiving in aid to public improve ments may not bring about necessities anti conveniences progressive people should enjoy requirements of law are far weak to make pikes build Iitoo erect churches and or to give aid to a rail road enterprise that would devel op our country We must then dedicate to common interest a portion of our means and time if we expect to give our communit such prestige it should have r Truly a spirit of this kind is grow ing in our county and is evidenc ed by
