lt bas boon a sort of bobby with
us ibis idea of mooting ono's obli

to us thal meeting obligations forms
tin- very pivot upon w,'iirh good busi

It is not a ?real big deal that has
"gone through" thal bas called this
point to our attention ami caused us
to deem it worth while making pub
lic reference lo Ibo matter. The mim
bi' of dollars involved is less than
ten thousand, bul the man concerned
is gelling well up in years, and if
those who have obligated themselves
to him .fall down" on their promises
and fail to take up the orders they
have placed with him. he tells us
that he stands a number one chanco
of losing his home up in the moun
tains of North Carolina.
This mau (?vu presume we ari1 not
abusing a conlldonee) is .Tom" lt.
Zachary, ol* Cashiers. N. C.. who ac
cumulated a nice home property at
Cashiers by truck farming and seed
growing and handling nursery frail
and other trees. This year he found
business exceptionally good ttl the
order-taking time. In fact, his busi
ness arnon tied to near $9,000, Ho

how his place became mortgaged-to
secure the large purchases made by
customers through him.
We fool sure thal a great burden
can be taken from til ix man without
anybody inconveniencing himself to
any g rea I extent-simply by meeting
the small ibligatioilfl thal have been
The greater part of this business
is. Mr. Zachary informs us, within
Oconee county. Knowing the people
of Oconee as we do, we feel sure that
Mr. Zachary will lind tho relief that
he needs. Yet he tells us that if his
business continues as it lias begun
on the fall delivery, he ls in danger
of great loss.
We would not mention these facts
but for the reason that it is along tho
line of "sermons" we have been
"preaching" these many years-the
necessity for-tho duty of--meeting
personal obligations, especially at
?neb times as these, when business
conditions at best are badly disorgan
ized. We aro too prone to feel that
"my obligation is small; it will not
matter much if I Just neglect it for
a while; or lt is so small that r can
fall to nicol it without material in
jury to any ono."
There never was a greater mis
take made. Tho whole business sit
uation bingos on the individual meet
ing his obligation at the appointed
time, no matter how small- and tho
larger tho obligation the greater thc
importance of meeting it. One man
fails to meet his obligation; another's
larger obligation is dependent upon
it. Two obligations have been set al
naught. This condition constitute?
an endless chain, and the strength oi
weakness of this business chain ii
determined by the keeping intact ol
all the links or the breaking of thom
I.et us all watch verv closely ovei
our Obligations, and if need be, in
.convenience ourselves to meet them
.Of course, there (ire instances when
conditions arise that make absolute
Iv impossible the meeting of an obi i
gallon, In such cases, nine times ot"
of ten, advance notice of Inability ti
meet an obligation, or notice that ii
is possible ibm the obligation cunno

"bridge over" for himself and "carr)

plan is. when possible or probabli
failure to ti.i obligations appears

The following of these plans wil

never arise. After all is said am

ever been found or ever will bi

Let us make every effort In Hu

-W. Newton Todd diod at his
homo in tho Dickel Bost section on
i Tuesday night of last week at about
IO o'clock. Ho had been sick for
, about two weeks. Buffering from
[ Bright's disease, which followed an
attack of inflammatory rheumatism
. some months back, from which ho
. had but partially recovered. Kow out
side of his immediate neighborhood
knew of bis illness, and Ibo news of
. his death came as a great shock to
. friends of the family here. Mr. Todd
? I was about I."> years of age and was
, known as one of tho most substan
I Hal, honest and upright citizens, not
i only of bis own community, but of
, our county. Kew men of his age have
. gained for themselves the wide repu
I talion for strict honesty that had
) come lo Mr. Todd as (he reward and
j result of the high moral plane upon
i which his whole life was fashioned.
, To mention the name cf "Newt" Todd
was to al once bring lo tho mind the
, thought of honest dealing and square
, manhood. Ile will be missed wher
ever he was known, and in the homo,
I and in tho community where he had
1 ? spent his whole life, the loss will be
1 indeed keenly felt. Mr. Todd was a
,? son of tho late J. N. Todd, and he is
? tho last of the family, except one
sister, Mrs. Amanda Barker, wife of
. Joshua Harker, of Hit' stamp Creek
soc ti on, who survives him. Ho is
i also survived by a widow, who was
t before marriage Miss Kva Alexander,
?5 a daughter of tho late Elias Alexan
i der, and six or seven children, who
. are all at tho home with their mo
- thor. Mr. Todd was a consistent and
? faithful member of Bethel Bresby
torinn church, and lt was one of his
pleasures to attond tho services at
that church and to assist tn the work
of the church and Sunday school.
