There was never a paper published in any locality that gave all the local news. It is often the case that some persons come and go that the reporters do not see or even know of. It may happen that the same family is missed several times and they get the impression that the paper does not care to mention them. It is a mistake. The best home paper has no ill feeling, no enmity, no spite against anyone, so do not be afraid to tell the reporter when you have friends visiting you, or that you have returned from a trip or are contemplating a visit. If you think the paper shows partiality, try to see if it does not treat you as well if you give it a chance.
