* CROSS HILL NEWS. *
Cross 11111, July 7.-We aro not ac
customed to look back nor try to live
In the past, but to press forward and
hope for better things, to live our
best in the present with acute and
hopeful expectations for the future.
Yet as we sat in meditation Friday
morning on the past year and thought
of conditions existing Fon Indepen
denco Day, 1918, we could not escape
tho impressions of contrast then and
now; and the one thing among many
others that held our attention most
pathetically was the fact that so many
of those who celebrated the Glorious
Poitrth with us a year ago are absent
today and are basking in that (ternal
freeloin from all Worbily affirtl s. With
oit. any intention to recall sad events
we would, for tilie sake of deserved
m1teimory for the dead and a gentle
warning to the living, mention those
in 1111s imnedilate towni who have
