Difficult to Find.
The fellow who goes around looking
for selfish happiness is like the man
who seeks the oth jr side of the street.
When he's here, it's over there, and
when he's over, it's here.-Greenville
You can always find somebody in a
worse fix than yourself if you will just

Value of a Boy.
Judge Ben Lindsey says that every
boy is potentially worth a million dol
lars to the nation." At this rate, if
we estimate that up to date the Eu
ropean war has snuffed out only 1,000,
000 mothers' darlings, the war has so
far cost in this item alone $1,000,000,
000,000. -Columbia Record.
Injuring His Credit.
The man who owes a debt and is
withholding his cotton is not only em
barrassing his creditors, but is serious
ly affecting his own credit for the fu
ture. There is no probability that cot
ton will he any higher in the near lu
ture. So why not sell the staple, pay
what you owe, stop interest on your
debts and keep up your credit?-Lan
Should be Thankful.
The man who has something to eat
these da\s ought to be very thankful.
Think of the men who have been laid
off with no possible way of earning
money to feed their families. Jn such
cases the man with land is blessed
more than can be expressed. If he
has not made enough to eat he has no
business with the land.-Greenwood
Thinking and "Unthinking.
People who do not think are uncon
genial to people who do think largely
because they do not think, and people
who do think are uncongenial to people
who do not think because they do think.
If people who do not think would learn
to think then they would become more
tolerable to thinkers as well as to
themselves; but if thinkers should
cease thinking, and put themselves on
a party with those who do not think,
just think what an unthinkable mess it
would make of us all.- Yorkville En
