Did you -ever stop to think
Shatthe.amount you owed some
one person kept lots of debts
from being paid? Your dollar
might settle a dozen bills before
it finally gets into the bank on
deposit. The excuse that you
cannot pay now. that you need
the money for something else, is
a poor business policy-in fact
it is a detriment to credit, not
-nly .to -you- bub to the other man
also, who was depending on you
,settling %your. obligation to him
in-order to-liquidate his own in
debtedness. The basis of these
remarks is our own personal ex
perience. We have undertaken
to pay bank notes and other
bills, andiin order to do so have
presented bills to our friends and
been met with a refusal, follow
-ed by the ,explanatoiy remark
that we didn't need the money
and they did.
Only the other day a man, a
.good ifarmor and a substantial
citizen,asked us when the con
test closed and when we told
him we thought it would close
between now and July 4th, said
we ought to run it. until the 1st
of November, ithat .times were
too hard and that he wanted to
help some of those in the race
but couldn't; that put us to
thinking and we asked him to
give us isinote.but ihe refused.
We looked up his account and
he is less than three years be
hind, and a few days later we
saw him purchasing.a ifine car
riage-yet he was too poor,
times were too hard and he
owed too much, to pay a small
subscription account; but times
were good and he was flush
when It came to buying a nice
In looking.exer.our hxiiks we
find 205 names, who, to get up
to the 1st of January 19 &, will
have to dig up a little o(ver.$3.0C
each. This may look hard, abut
-it is fair, to use, at ileast.
We have worked hard dfor
this money and we want it
need it in our buiness-henew
if our subscribers won't make
some effort to help these charm
ing young lady contestants win
a nice piano, they will not in
their cool and calm moments,
pay usso it is "good b4ye" to
-all on our books after the con
test closes, who have not paid
up or made satisfactory arrnge
ments otherwise with us.
Are you interested enough in
the young ladies to help them to
votes? Do you appreciate 'this
paper enough to settle up, even
though it does take a dollar that
you swould otherwise spend fool

The U. D. C., about the 3d of
June, willitry to make that day
a very pleasant one for the old
soldiers, with appropulate exer
cises, These gatherings are al.
ways pleasant and greatly en
joyed, but it seems to .us that
this joyous occasion ,could be
greatly enhanced if the U. D. C.
would go a little farther in their
program and preparations and
include the wives and widows
of the old soldiers. These noble
women stayed at home and
endured the privations of war,
saved and paid the taxes and
debts of their husbanda,,culti
vated the farms, tended the i
herds, wove, spun and n de
their clothes, and, "when his
cruel war was over," received
the struggling 'and forlorn rem
nants of strong manhood wilh
open arms, and by precept, ex
ample and counsel, started them
back into their interrupted pur-. "
suits and vocations. By their; o
indomitable courage and wiN.
power, they helped to bring 2
order out of chaos, and to-day
prosperity and peace smiles on '
a once most desolate region. i
We say, give the women of the a
Confederacy some recognition j
in this pageantry of honor con
ferred upon the defenders of the i
Lost Cause, for who was more f

these noble women?
