To Whom It May Concern:
Hickman, Ky., June 25th, 1912
We are going to give away a New 1912 Model-K 20 Two-passenger Torpedo
C. B. Travis, cashier of The Peoples Bank, will conduct the drawing of the free
automobile. After we have disposed of our tickets, the ballot box will be shook well in
order to get all the tickets mixed.
We have secured the services of Uncle John Hudson, a man who has been well
thought of all his life, but had the misfortune to lose his eye-sight and has been blind for
twenty-five years or more. Uncle John will draw one ticket from the ballot box and the
lucky person will get the automobile.
This car will be on exhibition at the " House of Quality " by July 1st. This Auto
mobile will NOT BE USED. We will roll this car by hand from the depot to the " House
of Quality," to remain there for public inspection.
We give you with each and every CASH PURCHASE of one dollar, three tickets
on the Autombile.
We solicit a part of your business and wish you much pleasure with the new car
We are yours truly,
H. E. CURLIN,
" House of Quality."

finish every day and be done with
it. For manners and for wise living
it Is a vice to remember. You have
done what you could; some blunders
and absurdlUts no doubt crept in;
forget them as soon as you can. To
morrow is a now day; you shall be
gin it well and serenely and with too
high a spirit to be cumbered with your
old nonsense. This day for all that
Is good and fair. It is too dear with
all its hopes and invitations to wasto
a moment on the rotten yesterdays.
Any business man would be horri
fied at tho suggestion that he would
ruin his boy by neglect that his ab
sorption in business would result in
the undoing of his own son. But it
is the easiest thing In the world to
forfeit a boy's confidence. It will take
only a little snubbing, a little scold
ing, a little unkind criticism, a little
nagging and unreasonableness to shut
off forever any intimacy between you
and your boy.
Do we ever 6top to think, wo won
der, how blest are tho quiet days
the days when nothing happens?
There is no illness to give anxiety,
uo business burdens or other trou
bles to disturb, but, on the conratry,
there is ho delightful consciousness
that all is well in the home and be
fore us tho promise of a peaceful day.
Wo know of no condition In life that

In the rush and hurry of modern
life do wo think as much as wo
might of tho happiness of those who
are growing old. They have lost so
much! Tholr youth, often their
health, most of the friends and com
panions who started with them on
Ilfo'u Journey, and yet we often
grudge them the brightness and joy
we might bo easily put into their
lives. We will not stay to hear tho
recollections of old and happy days
which they love to tell us. We lot
them see so plainly that their day is
land ours baa cornel That
bo hare borne the feurdea and
heat of tho day, tolled and struggled
and worn themselves out for others,

lected is sorrowful. We can and
ought, each and all, in our own way
and place, do something to bring the
glow of summer and tho remembrance
of tho days of roses and Iqvc Into
the eyes fast nearlng their winter
and their end.
It is one of the ironies of fate that
