To my mind there are more reasons why the business interests of a town should support its home paper than any other class of people. The greatest reason why they shouhl support its local paper is because of the large dividends it pays in the form of advertising. In this (lay of our modern age it is usless to stress the great necessity of advertising, for it has proved its worth to the most skeptical. Any sane busi- ness man knows that without adver- tising the business world would in- deed be greatly handicapped. There are today many business men who understand that advertising is a great asset to the business interest~ in general, but who fail to stop and think how greatly they could increase their own volume of business if only they would advertise extensively through the channels of their own local paper. The time has come when the busi- ness man is beginning to realize more and more the worth and help his I)aper is to hint in the form of adver- rising. "['he great majority of our laboring class of people do not have the time to go around our town and find the best talent, skill and bargains when they require the services of any of our vari- ous business interests. Instead of that, they depend gener- all5" upon the advertising colmnns of their local paper to serve them with the information as to where they can best be served. Take it wherever you may, you will always find that the varied business interests that advertise the most extensively are the ones who are the most successful. By the help of the business interests of a town co-operating with its local paper, it thus enables the editor and his staff, to devote a great deal more of their time to making the paper a larger and much better publication. Whenever you find the various busi- ness organizations of a town supporf- ing and co-operating with its paper, you will ahnost invariably find a paper that is full of good live news, and a great asset to any town and connllun- ity. When the business interests of a town have foresight enough to co- operate and support its local paper, it is doing a great work in helping to uplift anal upbuihl its town and com- nmnity that can be done in no other way. A town's spirit of pride and progress is reflected in the pages of its own paper. Its influence counts far more outside the home town than the most of us realize. Whenever an out-of-town person chances to get a'copy of a pa- per that is supported by its business interests, it creates a favorable im- presion upon that person. He immed- iately puts that town clown as being a good, live business place, and one that has the spirit of progress and success. A paper like that thus attracts many ,ew and desirable citizens to the town that could not easily be attracted in any other way. Whenever you find the people of a town, and especially the business in- terests, backing and co-operating with the editor of its paper, you will find a town in which all classes of people are directly benefited.

HAND AT WORK From an article in the National Bank- er on the Independent Order of For- esters, we quote the following: "F. E. Hand, Supreme Vice Ranger of the Independent Order of Foresters, recently established headquarters for the society in Chicago at 2001 Chicago Temple building, from which he will direct all fiehl and organization work in the United States and the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia in Canada. "Mr. Hand has been a distinguished member of the order for twenty-five years. During the last eighteen years he has been in charge of the society's affairs on the Pacific coast, maintain- ing offices in Los Angeles. Due to his effort California is one of the strong- hokls of Forestry, with 20,000 members to its credit. "He has played an important part in the society's program of philanthropy and relief. He designed and built the tuberculosis sanatorium at Lopez Can- yon where members afflicted with the disease are treated free. In recogni- tion of this he received a gold medal at the San Francisco Panama-Pacific exposition in 1915 for distinguished ser- vice in the nation-fight on the "white plague." The Independent Order of For- esters was awarded an additional gold medal by officials of the exposition who selected Lopez Canyon as the model institutibn among all tuberculo- sis sanatoriums in the United States. "Mr. Hand was the originator and organizer of the Order of the Purple Cross of the Independent Order of Foresters, a philanthropic department THE CATALINA CJeanses mouth and toetls and aids dioeatfo~.

"Several years ago Mr. Hand es- tablished on Catalina Island, off the coast of California, the Independent Foresters Inn, a resort where nle~nbers of the society from all parts of the United States and Canada may spend their vacations at a very moderate cost. "The Independent Order of Foresters under Mr. Hand's direction, plans to erect two buildings in Chicago. The first, which will be built at a cost of more than $100,f)00, on the near North side within the next few months will house the United States offices of the society and will contain lodge halls and recreation rooms for local courts of the order. The other building will, it is expected, be located on the south side.
