A local newspaper is a traveling agent making its weekly roiiuds to the families of all tspatrons. No mntter whether the times are good ordull; no matter whether tradc is brlsk or otherwise ; no business man can afford to take down his signs, nor witlulruw the pieasing influence of a weekly chat with his patrons throughthe newspaper. For a business man to stop advertising would be equivalent to saying, " I have stopped business, and ask no more favors of the people.'' The principal reason given by Gov. Luco tor vetoing the university bill, was that loreigu students or those outside of the state derived the same benetit as natlves of the state, at but little additional cost. And he advises the ralsing of fordm atudent's tuition tosuch an extent that only rich men'schildren can afford to take a course in the university. He also intiinates that the expenses of the university are too eitravagant, when the truth is that the university is run on a much more cconomical scale tlian any other institution of learnlng in the United States. Now for the facts in regard to foreign stmlents deriving advantages that are paid for by the state. The 7i)l state resident students pay fees amounting to $20,655; the 781 non-residents pay $84,980 fees. Therefore a less number of nonresidents pay 70 per cent, more feos than the students of the state. And the only saving in expenses in excluiliug the foreign students would be less than $10,000, the salary of the additional asslstant professors. It would not be vcry wis; to save this $10,000 at the loss of $34,980, but that is evidently what the (overnor wants to do. That is a Luce business principie.- Saline Observer.

"Oh! we could be happy witli elther, with 'tother dear charmer away." Now ain't that a pretty mess of porridge? When the common council of chis villaje pass a resolution ordering an ordinance euforced, and tben after the council adjourns certain members say you need not pay any attention to it. Now is tbe very time that every do#;fshould be muzzled and our people are afrald of bein;; bitten by dogs that are not, and if the officers do not attend to their duties the people will take the matter in their own hands. It is known thatrabid dogs have been through the country blUngdoge'a, and we cannot afford to take an v chances.
