The Commercial Herald, neutral
in politics, and the first newspaper
in Hickman, was established May 6,
1841. It was published by Smith &
Talbot, and edited by Mr. Dutemosi-
er. After an existence of several
years it suspended, and was suc
ceeded ,by The Hunter of Kentucky,
a Democratic sheet, managed by F.
T. Keisacker.' After a time he was
succeeded by J. W. Wingate in the
control of the paper. In 1845,
the Commercial Herald was revived,
and the Hunter of Kentucky merged
into it under the management and
editorship of H. 0. Beatty and J. "W.
Wingate. In 1846 the Herald was
sold to Jesse Leigh, and the Com
mercial Standard (Democratic) , es

Love Is the best and strongest

Speak kindly, it encourages the
downcast, cheers the sorrowing and
often wakens the erring to earnest

For a home to be a home In the
highest sense of the word, and not
merely a place to sleep and eat,
each member of the family must
contribute his or her share. There
must be forebearance, sympathy
and love. A great deal depends on
the parents. They should in the
early childhood of their children
teach them to make the home the
dearest place on earth. The aged
live more in the Dast than the nrei

of their boyhood and girlhood
How necessary then that these days
be mide happy, that their reveries
may give them pleasure. It is not
a perfect home where the inmates
hold themselves aloof. It is where
the guest is ever welcome, where
friends delight to come and come
again. Those that shut themselves
from the world become selfish and
narrow minded. It requires Inter.

Kindness is one of the purest
traits that finds a place in the human
heart. It gives us friends wherever
we may chance to wander. To show
kindness it is not necessary to give
large sums of money or to perform
some wonderful deed that will im
mortalize your name. It is the
world of sympathy to the discourag
ed and disheartened. Kindness
makes sunshine wherever it goes; it
is the real law of life j the link (hat
connects earth with heaven. Would
you live in the remembrance of oth
ers after you are gone? Write
your name on the tablets of their

" Do you know of any woman who ever received any
benefit from taking Lydia E. I'inkham's Vegetable Com
If any woman who is suffering with any ailment peculiar
to her sex will ask her neighbors this question, she will be
surprised at the result. There is hanlly a community in
this country where women cannot be found who have been
restored to health by this famous old remedy, made
exclusively from a simple formula of roots and herbs.
During the past 30 years we have published thousands
of letters from these grateful women who have been cured
by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and never
in all that time have we published a testimonial without
the writer's special permission. Never have we knowingly
published a testimonial that was not truthful and genuine.
Merc is one just received a few days ago. If anyone doubts
that this is a true and honest statement ol a woman s experi
ence with Lydia E. I'inkham's Vegetable Compound write
and ask her.

words with a sigh, realizing all too
late, our former blindness and folly.
Many of us find life hard and full
of pain. The world uses us rudely
and roughly. We suffer wrongs and
injure?. Other people's clumsy feet
tread upon our tender spirits. We
must endure misfortunes, tras. 3n4
disappointments. We cannot avoid
these things, but we should not al
low the harsh experiences to deaden
our sensibilities or make M stoical
or tour. The true problem of living
is to keep our hearts sweet and gen
tie in the hardest conditions and ex
periences. If you remove the snow
from the hillside In tho late winter,
you will find sweet flowers growing
there beneath the cold drifts, unhurt
by the storm and by the sn'owy
blankets that have covered them.
So should we keep our hearts tender
and sensitive beneath life's fiercest
winter blasts, and through the long'
est year of suffering, and even In
injustice and wrong treatment.
This is true victorious' living.

means real kindness, kindly express

always show the greatest politeness
