One of the saddest thinos I
have read in a long time was a
beautiful eulczy about a very
rich man. It mentioned the
fact of his wealth and his high
standing in society. etc., but
not a word was said about his
religious life. I thought of the
text: "What shall it profit a
man if he gains the whole world
and loses his soul, or what shall
a man give in exchatnge for his
I read again about the funeral
of an old negro, who was a slave
before the war. His white
friends carried him to his grave
and pronounced eulogies upon
his life. He left no property,
but he was rich in grace.
Which was the wiser, the edu
cated man, who devoted his
life to graining property and
fame or the ignorant negro.who
sought riches beyond the grave?

The Old Fellows Are Learning
A go-A friend said the other
day: 'There's no use worrying
over ,s old fellows. We are set
in jur ways. Spend vour time
ca the young folks and try to
get them interested in better
ways of farming and living."
Nevertheless, d e s p i t e o u r
friend's pessini-m, we find evi
dence almost every day that the
elder men on our Southern farms
are giving the young fellows a
pretty good chase in the race of
progress. Many of them have
something of the spirit of Thos.
A. Edison,now 67 years old,who
said the other day: ''I expect
to do my greatest work in years
to come. I am just in the state
of learning and my accomplish
ments will come later."
Thousands of farmers whose
school advantages were poor
have educated themselves by
reading good papers. Even the
old men who haven't been able
to read and write are learning in
many cases. Thousands of them
have learned in the moonlight
schools in Kentucky and we hope
this movement is going to sweep
over the South. We saw an old
lady recently who learned to
write after she had eleven chil
dren. Only today we heard of a
man .who educated himself bv
studying along with his growing
The old fellows are coming on

Marion Fisk, Cartoonist-Lecturer
Ewing Herbert, editor of Her!
bert's Magazine, says.
"The many who heard Mrs.
Fisk talk, and s tw her make
good pictures as she talked, de
cided that she was witty in
speech and most artistic with
chalk. Nothing on the Hia
watha Chautauqua program
pleased better than heroffering."
Mrs. Fisk will give Pickens an
exhibition of her talent as a lec
turer and her skill as an artist
at the school auditorium Wed
nesday. May 6, and no doubt
the house will be well filled.
