BR.IWSTER HEILLD, REWSTER, WASHINGTON ..... A,UGU,?T 9; :932 THE BREWSTER HERALD Published Every Friday at Brewster, Washington. D. L. GILLESPIE, Edito, and Manager Entered as second class matter at Brewster, Washington. I I I Ill REGISTER! BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE Illll I At midnight, next Tuesday, August 23, the registration books will be closed for the Primary Election. If you hav- en't already registered since January 1, attend to this mat- ter now. Remember, you are not entitled to vote unless you are registered. In these times of adverse economic conditions, it is im- perative that every citizen exercise his right to vote. Register now and ask your friend or neighbor if he has registered. If he hasn't, urge him to do so. Don't procras- tinate, for the books close next Tuesday night. I I THE USUAL POLITICAL MUDDLE A last minute rush to file for office has changed for a number of candidates, what might have been smooth sailing on still' waters to :muddy waters and high seas. A number of hats were cast into the ring last Saturday and the battle is on. Of course we are now getting about the full quota of political bunk in letter form. Strange to say, the promises and high-pressure literary achievements come through the mails in open letters as the three cent rate has forced candidates to save, inasmuch as that seems  to be the battle cry. If the average newspaper printed all the free publicity that came thrugh the mails it would certainly boost the business of the pulp and paper mills. IT LOOKS LIKE HARTLEY AND MARTIN It has been said that when several entiries into the race for governor were made, Hartley would gain support and l his opponents would lose. It is our opinion that if this be so, many thanks to those who have cast their hats into fl.l.olitical ring. It seems as though it will be a one-sid- ed race as far as Hartley and Gellatly are concerned and apparently Hartley will be opposed by none other than Mayor Martin, Democrat of Cheney. The other side of the mountains will be hard to fool at the polls in September. COLUMBIA BARD COMMENTS ON ANECDOTE Several months ago the Herald published an item tell- ing of the time Dan Gamble gave a wayfarer four-bits to buy some dinner on condition that said knight of the road first clear the sagebrush from a small corner of land be- fore calling on the local eats emporium. When Dan re- turned, the tramp and the fifty cents had departed but the sage remained. The article was read by F. J. Clifford, former resident here and free lance writer, and he commented on it in verse. Here is his idea of the incident: Cultus Potlatch So the sage still grows by the side of the road, In spite of the promises made. By the guy who said his belly was gaunt, Whose eyes were filled with woeful want But who quickly grew both bright and staunch, When the fifty cents was paid. But the fellow is not the first to be helped. ('And we'll wager he's not the last) By that ready listener, known as Dan An individual who practices the plan Of filling the measure that calls for a man, And building a well.filled past. So the sage may grow by the side of the road, And promisers their word may fail. But the U. S. A. will keep rolling along Because of the men of the unsung song, Who keep up the sight of the hurrying throng In the grind of the One Way Trail. F. J.

IN the distant past, before the dawn of civilization, prehistoric man summoned members of his clan to a meeting place, by beat- ing on a tom-tom or crude drum. When the common good de- manded that many gather at one place, this was the best means of notification. .'iI)URiNG'-e Dark Ages, when each feudal lord considered himself a king in his own right, runners carried the message by word of mouth, or a huge bale fire was lighted on one of the castle's towers to summon the loyal serfs. qAND in Colonial times each town had a' Crier who would an- nounce to the public, messages pertaining to the general wel- fare. The historic ride of Paul Revere illustrate one of these methods of carrying information to a large number of l)eople. {]NOW, in modern times, the need of infovning the public of happenings and events of interest, is many times greater than in the past. To this end newspapers are published. News of local and national importance is brought to the people, clearly, ac- curately and quickly. Individuals, societies and organizations, all recognize and profit by the advantageous method of tusing the newspaper as a means of spreading information. {]THIS practice is ADVERTISING. ' ' []THOSE individuals or firms who advertise, believe they have a message which will be to your advantage to read.
