H. H. MEDLIN,
This word "lost" has been used so
auch during the pas, nonths that
t is almost come to be a by-word wihl
Imost all school children and some
imes we are almost inctined to believe
he word "lost" is misused for in
tance: Here is John Doe, hei made
ifty bales of cotton last year and hadi
e cold as he harvestedi n$ doubt the
ntire crop of fifty bates would have
tveraged Mr. Doe at least twel)ty
ents a pound, but he joins the cotton
olding movement and today this
inme cotton would not average more i
hanl eight cents a pound. Alr. Doe h
ays he lost sixty dollars a hale, but 11h
lore coIes along a man and declare t
hat Mr. Doe has not lost a dollar but
imply lost an opportunity, but that
to man cannot lose that which Ie!
ever had and that Mr. Doe never had
he hundred dollars a bale and conse
juently never lost the sixty dollars.
\s to who is right or wrong in such
in argument we shall not attempt to
explain. All we have to say is just b
,imply this, we have never lost iv
.hing we did not have, but no doub t I
lave let many opportunities pass by
imnoticed. We believe it is said that

For tho lbIlefit of the school girls
as well as the realers of The Times
we are publishing the essay of Miss
Sue Ester Pitts under the title of "An 1
Ideal Home." We think the article
of Miss Davis last week contained
some very thoughtful as well as prac
tical idleais .alnd] we have the same op
inlionl of the article of1 NIiss Pitt s
An Ideal Ilomne
A nI ideaIl home should( he a place
where there is joyi, k indness05, glad ness,
peace, rest, ha ppinesss , hot abhove all,
WXe shioui not look upon Iour homnes
as only a place to eat and sleep in.

rough this world. It is better to
Oubt than to pretetia to accept that
Ihieh You know to be false. The im
>irta nt considera tion is not what or
1o is 'een but who sees.
Another factor of an ideal home is
v will power to resist temptation
id control our-selves. A wise teacher -
rives to develop the power and abil
y to face whatever temptation and L
Iferings that come to us and to over- .
me them by doing andti hearing and L
is same trait is found in :li ideal [
mlie. No where else except in our .

tek when the teiptation come to us [

cal hotie is where there is a kind

3 TO THE PUBLIC:
Since priees started failling, our policy has been
to mark our goods down and let them go. Our
sales for January 1921, were larger than they were
January 1920. We have moved most of our high
priced goods, and are recei-vang daily goods )oughi
at the low level, hence we feel that we are in posi
5 tion to save- you real money on lots of your pur
"SeCh ein is believing," so try us before you Ibuy
anything, at any price, anywhere; and lfease re
member we sell nearly everything you can find in
a Sear's Roebuck catalogue.
