If you think there is "nothing doing" in Smithville, bring your dinner and come around to the News office and spend a day. We wonder if the "graft" investigation would stand a "graft" investigation.

"That you have to go away from home to learn the news" is well illustrated in the Smithville News, is what many people in Blooming-ton will tell you. The News gives many important matters of news to about 300 people in that place, that all the other newspapers never even heard of. No Paper Xmas Day As Xmas is a national holiday, and everybody will be to well-? otherwise to pay any at-tention to a newspaper, the News will not appear Xmas day. In the meantime we will wish you a very Happy Chrismas and may "Old Santa" be very liberal to you. New TelepHone Subscribers Newt Wright, general store at Victor, Dr.F. W. Kern, Harrods-burg, Frank Underwood and Albert Moat are new telephone subscribers this week. Editor Feltus is complimenting himself this week on his keeping up such an excellent condition of his paper, week by week, by his own labor. We have often wondered how he managed to set up So much type, make up his ads, get them through the press siraight, all appearing about the same each issue and how his physical condition would always permit him to keep it up so regularly. A gold medal ought to be presented to Frank Kinser, as he is the only office holder ever on record-that never took all that was coming to him. The program for the next meeting of the W. C. T. U. promises to be very interesting. It will be held at the M. E. church, Jan. 7th. Why not give the News some County printing? It is a legal publication, and can deliver the goods for less money, and can do as good work as any printing establishment. The News hasn't learned to "graft" yet and we believe it would be a wise economical act.
