What's the condition of your home to-day ? Are you neglecting its equipment because the other end
of the world is at war? If so, you are doing the wrong thing. Your home is your life. Everything man
holds dear is centered in the home. Then why see the home reach an uncheerful condition. This is the
time of all times to make the home cheerful. Crops are good, prices, fair, money is plentiful, what is
needed is confidence. Confidence in ourselves, confidence in each other, confidence in the country, a little
cheerfulness, a willingness to help each other, is what we most need. We begin ourselves, in fact we
have never let up, in putting our best efforts first. We hav e boght wisely. We have kept up stocks,
varieties, etc.; have gone ahead with improvements. We have kept up to the top notch the store's mer
chandise and service, and as a reward we feel that business is poing ahead.
For the fall months we have prepared, as usual, to meet the demand. No blues nere. No lack
of faith; no lack of merchandise; no surrender to conditions; nothing but confidence in the people, in our
selves, in our merchandise, and in the times. Won't you meet us half way. Come see, and buy a few

F. A. M.
Mt. Zion Community.
On Tuesday of last week the
death angel visited our community
and took away Mrs. Josephine
Horn, the beloved wife of Mr. Mil
ledge Horn. The death of this good
lady was not unexpected, as she had
been a great sufferer for many
months, but the knowledge that
death must come does not prepare
a loving heart for the change, and
the anguish is no less keen when
some one pronounces those irrero
cable words, "She is dead!"
It were an enviable legacy could
any one have said over her the!,
words of praise that were spoken
on the departure of this noble ehrie
tian woman. As with Dorcas, her
neighbors told of her good deeds a*
she lay dead. In the funeral sermon
which was preached at the home on
Wednesday by Rev. P. B. Lanham,
he spoke of the singular freedom
of her life from wrong, and her
husband, who knew her heart, said
that if ever she did anything wrong,
he did not know it. i
The interment took place at th?
family burial plot on the plantation
of Mr. J. C. Whitlock. A Urge
crowd was present, and many beau
tiful floral offerings attested the
high regard in which this estimable
lady was held. Great sympathy ie
felt foi her aged husband, who tn
burying ber, has buried his all, a&d
is now left utterly alone his home*
Another aching heart is that of
Mrs. J. C. Whitlock who, having
already lost one sister this year, is,
the death of Mrs. Horn, loses her
only remaining sister.
