“That was a fine paper you
made us yesterday,” was the
greeting one young lady gave
The Leaderman on his rounds
Tuesday morning. It was
brought out with much difficulty,
but we were pleased to know
that the effort was appreciated,
and that it struck at least one
responsive chord. Those who
know nothing of the labor re-
quired to make a newspaper have
little sympathy for those who
work there. Suffice it to say
here that five people work from
morning until night in making
this paper, trying always to use
the time to the best advantage
and to work as a unit. Effort is
made to get the comings and go-
ings and the looal news and to
put itxinto readable shape, so
that it may entertain, instruct
and amuse those into whose
homes it seems always to be a
welcome visitor. We would ap-
preciate more business, in fact to
make the paper a success it
should have a much larger pat-
ronage. Let us forget the past
and all work together for a bet-
ter newspaper and a larger and
more progressive Lampasas in
the succeeding years. The past
of this paper is a guarantee that
it will do its part. Thanks, la-
dy, for this paragraph.
We have some nice home-
cured, home-smoked country
bacon, nice enough for any use.
Also country Bausage of the best.

other turn. The energy of the
boy is one of the astonishing
features of humanity.

The fire alarm was sounded
Tuesday morning at 7:25, and
the blaze was located at the
home of E. T. Jordan, where the
ceiling had caught on fire over-
head from the heat generated by
the flue. It was quckly extin-
guished and when the fire de-
partment arrived, there was noth-
ing for the boys to do. The Lead-
er would suggest that it is time,
of all the times, to be careful
about fire. We can not afford to
lose property or life at this time.
