DAYS OF THE PAST.
A Georgian Sighs For the Scenes of
Editor Herald and News: In read
ing over again the Annals of New
berry county, I like the district bet
ter. Seeing so many names of peo
ple and places with which I was once
familiar causes my mind to sweep
over the buried years, as they have
come and gone. filling me at times
with indiscribable sadness. By
these thoughts and feelings the fol
lowing little poem was suggested,
which I should like you to publish.
I sigh for my own. my dear native
For the scenes of y childhood and
Where I was tenderly led by the
And where I .rst learned of the
I sigh fOr th-- r.d and humble home
Where I first saw the light of the
For the wide fire-place and my own
Where close to my mother I lay.
I sigh for the dear old rock-bottom
That flowed at the foot of the hill,
To which in my romps my thirst I
And, lie down and drink to my fill.
I long for the plum and the mulberry
Which afforded us childish delight,
The holly hock's bloom, home of the
Sipping in honey from morn till
I sigh for my comrades of boyhood
For the ground cover which we did
The old-time school house and the
WVhere we reveled in pleasure and
I sigh for the faces I once did love,
So beautiful, so gentle and sweet.
But many c-f these have gone up
And are now walking the golden

Which is ebbing away in quick rapid
Bearing us on to .eternity's shore.
But dear to my heart as these
thoughts may be,
A sadness comes over my dream;
For I think of those I ne'er more
On this side of death's icy. cold

:r all of these offices we must have
gId trtie ant loyal men. otherwise
otlr county and ztate will stffer. and
we. as a people. will retrograde rath
er than progress. There are valuable
candidates standing for the various
offices to be filled. let us. therefore.
select the best in our judgment. cast
our ballots accordingly. and thereby
discharge a high duty that we owe
both to ourselves and to our state.
One of these candidates is our pres
ent, true. loyal, and most efficient
sheriff. Capt. M. M. Buford. who is
standing for re-election. Has he dis
charged the exacting duties of that
high and responsible office well and
truly? Has he fulfilled our expecta
tions and measured up to that high
standard of efficiency made by many
good and capable men who have filled
the office before him? If so. then
we should re-elect him. And if these
things be true. can anything else be
given in his favor still further to in
cline us in his favor? With many of
us there is. His record from i86o
to the present time is an open book
wherein there are recorded the deeds
which show up the patriotic. true and
loal citizen. When a hoy of sixteen
he promptly answered the call to
arms, and during the trying times of
those fearful years. in the camp. on
the march and on the battle field.
th-se inestimable and priceless char
acteristics of the brave. gcod and
honest citizen were then early evinc

A "White Ribbon" Story.
\lrs. Robrt T. Burdette was talk
in one da- about the whit e ribbon
that is the sign of total abstinen-ce.
savs the Louisville Herald.
"There are some persons" said
Mrs. ;urdette. "who don't wear the
white ribbon with sincerity. They
w,ear it. perhaps.'about as hypocriti
cally as it was worn by an employee
of a certan 'brewer.
"This employee. after years of dis
sipation. appeared one day at the
brewery with the white ribbon on his
breast. Nothing was said to him and
he wore it for several months. Then
one day the head of the nirm hap
pened to notice -the man's badge, and
'Why, Frank.' he said. 'it is
strange to see you. a brexver xwearing
white ribbon. Why do you do it?'
t is like this.' said the wvork
man. ' ear the ribbon because it
makes men like to temDt me. and
whewn I m tempted I succumb, sir.'
The talkatix'e age is passing out.
The world is turning more and more
to people who do things.
