You may it to ruin, but not to
success. The great Napoleon, who
believed in Irs destiny, followed it
until he saw his star go down in
the blackest night when the old
guard perished around him, and
Waterloo was lost. A pound of
pluck is worth a ton ot luck.
Young men talk of trusting to
the spur of the occasion. That
trust is vain. Occasion cannot
make spurs. If you expect to make
spurs, you must win them. If you
wish to use them, you must buckle
them to your own heels before you
get into tho fitiht. Any success you
may achieve is not worth the hav
ing unless you fight for it. What
ever you win in life you must con
quer by your own effort, and then
it is yours a prrt of yourself.
In giving you being, God locked
up in your nature certain forces
and capabilities. What wil1 you do
with them? Look at the mechanism
of a clock. Takp off the pendulum
and ratchet, and tho wheels go rat
tling down, and all its force is ex
ponded in a moment; but properly
balanced and re gulated, it will go
on, letting out its force tick by tick,
measuring hours and days, and do
ing faithfully the. service for which
it was designed. I implore you to
cherish and gur rd and use well the
forces God has given you. You may
let them run down in a year, if you
will. Take oil the strong curd of
discipline and morality, and you
will be an old man before your
twenties are passed. Preserve those
forces. Do not b'ini them out with
brandy, or wwte t'leni in idleness
and crime. D ) not destroy them.
Save and protect them, that t!iey
may save for yo'i fortune and fame.
Honestly rtsolve to do this and you
will be an honor to yourself and
country. James A. Garfield.
Sutton Utterback informed the
Enterprise that a great many
thought that he made a mistake
when he tented the farm known as
the Henry Utterback farm of 1G0
acres for $350. This farm was sold
to I. A. Barr, of near Holt. Mo., and
Sutton received $100 as a commis
sion in assisting in making the
deal. He has raised 2000 bushels
of corn on the place. Also G9 hogs
that average 150-lbs., worth some
thing like $12 each $828. Figur
ing his corn at 50c per bushel and
the other items he has made $1928
on the farm. Besides Mr. Barr has
paid him $150 for possession of the
farm. Mr. Barr having moved to
the farm 4 months before Sutton's
year was up Perry Enterprise.

Pottery, curiously enough, is the
most indestructible evidence of an
cient civilization. Pottery can be
smashed to fragments, but is never
destroyed short of grinding it
into dust. The series of pottery
fragments shows the stages of de
velopment of the art in the very
cradle of civilization.
One shallow bowl, made by one
of the skin-chaffed borebears of
of modern Europeans, is not unlike
the bowl from which one eats break
fast food, so far as shape goes,
though in texture it is more like a
kitchen crock than anything else.
Some of the pottery still shows the
paint used in decoration.
The vegetable colors used, unlike
our modern coal tar dies, hold their
color well, despite nenrlv t'M'ty

Profanity is Biblical language
with a reverse gear, and is used to
back the owner out of the straight
and narrow path.
Profanity is convenient in many
ways. Incase of anger it is sup
posed to prevent the peeved person
from blowing out through the seams
After a man has emitted about ten
cubic feet of high tension profanity
his pounded thumb feels better and
he no longer desires to throw the
hammer through a $10 window
pane, says George Fitch.
Profanity is also used industri
ously by steamboat mates and au
tomobile owners. It is next fo im
possible to operate a steamboat
without a full head of profanity.
In tne case of the automobile, pro
fanity does the machine no good
but enables the owner to endure
Pilots of large-eared and patient
mules use swear word3 as a sort
of self-starter. A mule who will
allow a fire to be built underneath
underneath him without taking any
interest in it, will wake up and walk
off all by himself after his owner
has pelted him with a bushel of
polygonal swear words.
Profanity is also used by poor
Kind that Pleases
An Excellent Advertising
talkers to fill in blanks in their con
versation when their brains are
missing fire. By the aid of profan
ity, a man with one candle power
brain can talk steadiiy for a long
time slipping in one cuss word to
two ordinary words and thus mak
ing his supply last longer.
Profanity is mostly descriptive
and is very vivid. Some of it is
such accurate description that
after a man has finished using it.
the air smells like an old-fashion
ed eight-day match. Profanity is
also very irritating to the hearer.
After a man has listened to a few
minutes of profanity produced by
another man, he often takes pro
ducer by the neck and cleans off half
a block of side-walk with him. It
takes a very intelligent man to start
a quarrel without the aid of pro-
fanity.but with its help anyone can
cook up a fight in three minntes.
Profanity is not refined, and is
regarded with horror by the best
people, except when it is heard on
stage. If the hired girl were to say
"damn" in the average family, she
would be fired forthwith, but this
word is always greeted with great
applause in a play and is a great
boon to the weary author, who
would otherwise have to think np
, something original at that point
Profanity is not a hard art to ac
quire. It can be learned in the
home with the aid of a telephone
or a weakchested furnace in a very
few lessons. Hannibal Journal
Talk about snake stories. W. A.
McCreery southwest of Perry, tells
a corker. One Sunday afternoon
recently he killed 33 snakes mostly
blue racers from 2 1-2 ieet to 4
feet in length. One of hischildren
noticed some snakes near an old
abandoned coal mine, and he pre
ceeded to kill them, and while at
the job snakes made for their holes
from every direction. He slew
them until Jie was tired, and when
the battle was over 33 big snakes
were lying around. This is a true
snake story, as Mr. Mc. is a truth
ful man. Perry Enterprise,

There are times when our dis
appointments prove to be our true
appointments. In the midst of our
regrets we suddenly chance to see
things from a different point of
view. What we at first considered
failure we now see as opportunity,
that a fog of misconception had
veiled temporarily from our sight.
J We hope anew, make another effort
