Charlie Duden assisted us this week. Charlie is handy around an office and will make a good printer.

C. F. Knowlton, late of the Osborne Journal, has moved to Greenleaf, where he takes charge of the Journal.

Before someone else suggests the idea, we will just say that we intend to have the Headlight office placed on wheels by the time we move again.

"While most any business allows a man to take a vacation some time during the year, yet the printer is denied this luxury and must stand at the case and paw pewter from early dawn to sultry eve, and then wait for years for his pay. It may suit some people but there's little sport in it for us." -- Salem Argus.

Going. With this issue the Headlight suspends publication. We have received a very liberal support since embarking in the newspaper business at this place, in fact as good as could be expected, considering the shortage of crops, etc. But the outlook in this business is not as flattering here as it might be. We will move to Luray in Russell County, a new town on the Salina, Lincoln and Western Railroad. All of my present subscribers will receive the paper from Luray, or if there are any who prefer the Topeka Weekly Capital and Farmers Journal, I will send them it instead. Respectfully yours, J. E. Garner.
