No Wedding Bells For Us.
Dan Cupid is said to get in his most
deadly work this week but we will have
to ask him to pass us by as there are
no hearts hung on the outside of the
Record office door for him to shojt at.
True, our three young ladies. Misses
Stella and Grace Comely and Miss Mary
Reid are just the kind he is looking fox,
good looking, bright and energetic, but
the Record needs them so badly, if
Cupid comes in the door after cne of
them he will go out by the window.
Surely, Cupid remembers Lenny for
he got in his work on him some sever
al years ago and hit him so hard he
was led to the hymenial alter, like
some of the rest of us, he now stands
without hitching, is a thoroughly dom
esticated animal, the kind that Cupid
never bothers but once. True, Tercy
is not married but he is invulnerable,
unless hit in the heel, and he steps so
lively we think Cupid would be wasting
both .time and darts to shoot at him.
The City Editor has had such a deep
wound another shot would kill him.
He really needs a professional nurje,
no ameteur need apply.
We had intended to offer our promis
ing young devil on Cupids alter as a
sacrifice from the Record office, but
when he came in with a valentine he
had written saying he "had given his
hart to Grace" we knew it was all over
with us and t'was then we decided to
where his next meal was coming from
through his kindly advice, for he al
ways says to them, "dont do as I did, but
as I say." He has started the ball
rolling in this store several times, but
it has stopped before it hit Simon,
however Judge Tinker says he hopes to
get him off this Spring, that he has or
dered some flowers for Easter, which
is always a hopeful sign.
We hardly know how to advise Cupid
about going into Davidson and Doty's
or into the Citizens Bank, Alex and
Joe seem to be in about the same fix
as the firm of Hurt & Anderson, though j
he had better talk with Judge Ander-
before passing them by. I
We advise him to open Billy Ball's
door very gently and give Charlie Za
none the same treatment he gave Billy,
that is, slip up on him unaware, shoot I
him down and then put in one more
dart for good count. He will have to
have special arrows made for H. B.
Northcott. as all of them hereto-fore
have failed to penetrate at all, or else
broken off before they reached his
He need'nt waste any time on Har
ry Tomlinson either, because he has
been mortally wounded, not by darts,
but sharps and flats. He is too far
gone for even Cupid, music being the
only thing that will soothe him.
We will ask him to keep out of the
Graded Schools as Prof. Riley says
love perms are vrv infectious, hut
hang out our card "No Wedding Bells i not at all dangerous, at the tender age
For Us" in order that Cupid would he deals with. Prof. Riley doesn't
waste no time on us, as there is so know how dangerous it is with Charlie
much work for him to do elsewhere. .and Willie.
First, we would direct him to the f As for Robt. Walter, Billy Burton,
tial bondage that deprives him of
many bachelor liberties. The summer
girl may have been hard to withstand,
but nevertheless she seemed a sort of
illusion, but this queen woman of the
heart is real. She is irresistable, not
because she is beautiful or brilliant,
but because seems to belong, not to
the cold world outside, but to him.
And the maid who had no more heart
than a driad during the summer flirta
tion is no longer a vacation ballad, but
a woman enchanting and sweet to him
No wonder there are so manv wed
dings during the winter season they
are the orthodox confessions of spring
courtships and summer betehothals, that
could no longer resist the fireside
"Th teecher sez, I've got a hart,
But teecher's off her base
Once on a time I had a hart,.
But now its owned by Grace".
Garrard Bank and Trust Co., there is a
modern man or two in there and they
would like to negotiate with him before
being shot at. He might stop in at
Batson's and use another dart or two
effectively. Currey's store holds one
in the person of Johnnie almost as in
vulnerable as Tercy, but he still has a
soft place over his heart. Smith the
up-to-date clothing man, is also up-to-date
in this business and if Cupid of
fers him any one, she will have to be
neat as a pin, pretty as a pink the
achme of perfection. We will have to
ask Cupid to pass over Hurt & Ander
son, they are too deeply wounded to
need further treatment, in
Doo Gill, Pool Perkins, Sam Denny,
Joe Price, H. Cla; Kauffman and Jos
eph Bros, we have given Cupid advice
elsewhere, telling him if he wants to
catch these, he will have to stop travel
ing around on the wing, but get a bi
cycle, motorcycle, Auto or some such

A Hint To Saint Valentine.
Dear old saint our fathers worshiped,
Whom we disregard of late.
You forget that times are changing,
Bows and arrows out of date.
You are out of date, Dan Cupid,
Traveling around on the wing,
Why not get yourself a bicycle,
Motorcycle, or some such thing?
Why not get a touring car,
Run-a-bout or Auto-bus?
With these later day improvements,
You could make just twice the fuss.
Is it that our hearts are smaller.
That he misses oft his fling?
No, in these days of fast traveling,
He has to catch us "on the.wing".
Here's Good Picking For Cupid.
Green Clay Walker says the fact that
he is not married is no fault of his and
that he wonld like very much to have a
wife, as she would be quite a help to
him in conducting his campaign.
The celebration of Valentines Day on
the 14th day of February originated
with the Romans and is intended to be
in commemoration of the feast of St.
Valentine, who was a "patron.saint of
the ancient Romans. The custom as
anciently observed by the Romans con
sisted in sending pictorial missives
which were termed "valentines".
There has however been considerable
deterioration from the pretty original
custom, and in modern times the day
is observed, especially by the young,
in the sending of caricatures and comic
pictures intended to portray the recipi
ent in 8. very unpleasant light, and in
many cases the unfair advantage is tak
en to convey to some person your opin
ion of them by a means which very
much resembles that most despicable of
all persons, the anonymous letter writ
er. The custom as' originally observed,
and which is indulged in to some ex
tent as yet, is a very pretty one; the
senders chose beautiful cards contain
ing appropriate verses of poetry in
tended to gladden the heart of some
loved friend, but we are very sorry to
say that the sending of the comic and
more objectionable clas3 of valentines
very much predominates. The latter
custom is very much indulged in by
children, who do not stop to think, or
else are not cognizant of the gravity of
the act they are performing, but their
elders we are sorry to say, are some
what given to expressing their opinions
of other people by means of the comic
Before we do this let us stop to think
that perhaps the recipient may be
grieved by its receipt, that we are do
ing them an injustice, and that we our
selves would not care to receive such a
missive, and refrain from ruthlessly
and unnecessarily injuring their feel
ings. There are any number of pretty
card valentines to be obtained for the
same price; substitute one of the latter
for the nonsesical comic which you had
You would not stoop to the under
hand method of sending an anonymous
letter to inform someone of their short
comings, a romic valentine is just
about the equivalent of an anonymous
letter therefore do not send it.
Cupid Has Inspired Lancaster Boys
"From The Fullness Of The Heart The
Doo Gill's first effort at Valentine
The girl for me must have false hair.
And freckles on her face.
I do not want a "baby stare"-
Of beauty not a trace.
I want a girl that's awful fat
As homely as can be.
If she's as ugly as a bat.
Then she might love only me.
The Valentine written below by H.
Clay Kauffman shows a deeper insight
into love affairs than does D. Gill's, it
also shows literary skill and that he is
equipped with large knowledge and the
type of mind to write a valentine with

My love is like a red, red rose,

And still will love thee, my dear,
Till all the seas gang dry.
Till all the seas gang dry, my dear,
And rocks melt by the sun;
And I will love thee still, dear

Two Valentines For H. C. Bailey.
Saint Valentine was overly generous
with the home of H. C. Bailey. He
left two bouncing boys there that have
been named William and James. We
can not help but feel that a mistake
was made and that one was intended
for elsewhere, but as long as the moth
er, who was Miss Mary Moss, is so
pleased and the proud father is just
"tickled to death" with getting in so
much 'steady help', we will not be so
unkind as to tell Saint Valentine the
mistake his delivery boy, the Stork,
Dan Cupid went to shoot one day,
He flushed three hearts npon the way.
One was so hard, his arrow broke
At every stroke;
One was so soft, no barbs so bold
Could in it hold;
And one was fair, and sweet and sound
He quickly brought it to the ground.
Now, tell me truly, maiden mine.
Which heart was thine.
Conceited man! None of the three
You tell of was the heart in me,
The soft, the hard, nor yet the sound.
You boast you brought to ground.
At other hearts yet
(Did you forget)
You leveled your artillery;
And shot and shot again,
And ever shot in vain.-
You missed them clear, you see
Of these was mine

Women these days have their hands

keep her temper and her youth as there
