1 have a very unfortunate v.abit of I
saying what 1 think, trying always to
think right. 1 know it is not always
politic to do so, t'..at is, to say what
you think, but 1 am nor politic, and I!
know taat,* too. I just cant' he-p it.j
I am buiit that way, and deserve noj
I credit for it, and neither should I bej
severely censured. This is \ curious
world and is composed of many |
curious people. The older I grow the'
more am" I convinced of this fact, 'I
lave no axe to grind, and so far as
I know I am not going to turn the |
grind stone for any one, though in t'nisj
'progressive and up-to-the-minute agej
"we turn the grind stone and every-!
thing else by electricity. I think I
have a modicum?that's a gdod word,
I hope?of common sense and would
liate to be called a fool. Most any
othpr pnithpt von va.-nr to armlv will i
I not disturb my equilibrium?that another
good word, I hope?but if you
Rt me down for a fool t":en my Dutch
rises to t>:e resentful stage. I have .
Been here a long time when you count
lb by years, but I have never been able
lo get down to the point where I reckoned
age or time by years. Some people
live in years to Our score and ten
and then not live very long. While
others may live a great deal more and
longer at forty or fifty calendar years.
I started out to say something and
make an application, but I believe I!
will not say more, but let you, dear j
I reader, make the application if you j
can see the point. I have lived a good j
many calendar years myself, and a!
great many other kind, and I fcaveI
reached tLat point in life where I don't j
care much what people say or think'
in regard to me. I have made up my:
mind to live in my hut by the side of i
the road and be a friend to man, if
he will let me, and if he won't, then
I can't help it. Here is my desire:
I would be true, for tiere are those'
who trust me; !l
would be pure, fof tf:ere are those
II would be strong, for there is much!
I ^yould be brave, for there is much to

pf they can Lelp it, by the wagging of
their tongues. I- was a l'ttle disappointled
at the retort of the doctors whoj
hxamined the babies at the better)
rbabies contest some time &go. As I j
understand it, out of the more than j
one hundred babies examined, they
found all by two suffering Crom adanoids?I
believe that is w?'.:at they call
it?and I never heard a word wrong
wif:, any of the tongues. 1 hope this
augurs-well for the future of t"is com.
niunity. If the tongues are pure and
perfect we are going to have good
+v,;~ /.nmmnnitw cnmp timp in
the future?one of these days. Some,
of these old tongues fcere now seem!
never to wear out, at least so long as'
they find something to say unkind of
other people, and if they can't really
find it they proceed to manufacture it.
and t):ey are pretty good artisans in
their peculiar line. It has always been

really people in this beautiful world j
of ours who would much rather say
i^akiad things, and who would go out
rof their way to do so, when it would
he so much easier and so much less
exertion to say pleasant things, or to
keep their tongues still. But I have
made up my mind to agree with my
friend, the poet of the Baltimore Sun,
and stand by
4<The friends that lov^ us always,
In the good times and the bad;
The friends that love us always
Are the friends that keep us glad.
Tie friends that cling in tempest
As they do in calms are those
That have made C'ne paths of hardship
Seem the paths of song and rose.
I The friends that love us always,
iWhen we go their way or not,
Are the friends tfrat hearts remembert
When others are forgot.
The friends that stick the closest
When the trouble grows the worst;
The friends that love us always
Just the way they did at first.
They are the crowning jewels
Of the coronets we weave

When t'":e troubles start to leave;
And we lisp their names forever
And we see their faces clear;
The friends that love us always,
In the sun or shadows, dear."
Yes, the friends that love us always
are the friends that we want to stick
to, like Tige. They may be scarce, j
and yet I do not know t'.at they are.
The trouble is E.iat we are in such a
fearful hurry in this age that we
scarcely have time to die, and would
not take it if we could help it, and
that means that we scarcely have timo

main purpose of this life is a prepara- j
tion to lay it down, 1 aven't time to j
live right and to know t'.ie real meaning
of the word cabled friendship. It's
all a one-sided affair. Selfishness rules.
Now, I didn't start out with any purpose
of writing this sort of?well,
whatever you want to call it?when
I took my typewriter in hand?I mean
the machine?but here it is and you'

Xow I am goins to close bv asking
what sort of a friend are you, and T
am going to ask it in the ver<=e of
Edgar A. Guest, in Detroit Free Press:
"What sort of a friend are you?
uo you suck Dy a. orotner s side,
As you know you'd want him to do
If you were as sternly tried?
Is there ever a pleasure rare
That you willingly go without
To share another's care,
And smilingly he.p him out?
WlJat sort of a friend are you?
Just one ot tLe fair dav kind.
A smile when the skies are blue,
[ Ahead when he falls behind?
Do you put yourself out at all,
Do you pass up a joy that's nigh
To answer a brother's call,
Or selfishly Lurry by?
Do you stick when* his days are glum,
As you did when mis days were fair?
When he wishes that you would com-3
Do you eagerly hurry there?
Or do you think of yourself
Each minute the whole day through,
Of comfort, of fame and pelf?
What sort of a friend are you?"
What sort? That's the question 1
would like for you to answer for yourl
own good. It is a personal question'
and upon your answer will depend"
largely your happiness t:ere and in the j
hereafter. You may think I dont' know!
what I am talking about, but if you
will just pause for a moment in your
mad rush for money or fame or office
you will wake up to a full realization
of the truth of it all. May you do so:
b?fore it is too late. Did you ever
think of^it. Too late. Awful words.
\nd I am not preaching a sermon.
Xor trying to. Wish I could. Make
tvp application of all this. You can
do it. I am not.
P. S.?X. B.?Talking about burr
closer, the other day 1 passed along by
the Central Mettodist churcn, and it
looks to me like they are experiment
ing with burr clover on one-nan
that beautiful lawn. Wonder what has
become of John Mayes. I used to hear
fcjat he ispent a good deal of his time
working flowers and mowing the grass
on this lawn. It could be made a
beauty. And tf-en look at the lawn at]
the First Baptist church. 1 could not
tell whether it was burr clover or not.
Seems to me way back yonder when I
was a small tot there was something
that looked like corn that they called
i Means grass?named after one of tine
*-old governors of South Carolina?and
[ this, looked to me iust like that grass,
| or maybe it is corn, but if it is it needs
work ivery mudh, and some of those
good brethren and sistern should get
busy and work it out, or it won't mak?
much of a crop! There could be some
beautiful lawns in Newberry if we
could just get*the spirit to move some
of the big men and women. But isn't
that lawn around the old court house
looking pretty now since the mercenary
spirit ftas been killed by The Idler
and the burr ciover nas ueen cut auu
the grass given a chance? No telling
what good a little friendly advice will
do. And I do love to give it. T. I.

At little hail fell in this section Saturday

At 11 o'clock a great audience was (

Uhe cr-eed, Dr. J. W. Kilgore led in
prayer, Dr. J. D. Kinard read the lesI
