Each hour of the day Is carrying man nearer the end of life .and the time that Is waated can never be re called. Each day Is filled with great opportunities that should be grasped, and if they .are not they are waated and nothing is accomplished. In school if we fail to do the right thing the time is coming when we will regret having waated suoh wonderful op- .. portunltles. Each day should be be gun with a resolution to consider these opportunities and take advantage of them. In after years you'll say, "Oh! K I had Just taken advantage of this or that when I had an opportunity how much t would appreciate 1." In business life If great deals are let slip by the nil haa wasted an opportun ity that would ' probably mean much to him financially. . The time that wa have la only lent to us and It. wa fall to use this time properly we will be a complete fail ure, and have nothing to show for our life's work. Each day brings new op portunities and do not let that day end without having taken advantage of them or else they will be wasted opportunities. -. It has been well said that oppor tunity only knocks at our door once In a life time and if we are alerplng when that time comes what will our Uvea be? Always be watching and heed to the knocking.

IN MEMORY Death visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Allen Curnutte and took from them his dear mother, aunt Sarah. She departed this life February 1, 1922. She lived to be about 80 years old. She had been sick about three months and bore her Illness patiently. Her last serious illness was about a week. She put her trust all in God. A few days before she died some of her irlends were talking to her about summer and that she would get well and she would get to go to church and good meet ings. Then she said, "I will be in a meeting In the summer that will be Heaven." We can proudly say aunt Sarah is at rest. . All was done for her that loving bands could do, but God knew best. Children, of course you have a great desire to make Heaven your home while- father, mother and hosts of friends are there. ' She was laid to rest In the family graveyard ibeslde her husband, uncle Jim, at Dry Rldse. In life we loved her dearly. In death we do the same. The memory Is ns dear today As In the hour she passed away. A FRIEND. IN MEMORY OF MRS. BERTHA THOMPSON WEBB . Relentless death among us comes. And bitter grlof Imparts. It took our dear Bertha from our ' home, but not from our hearts. But to our Father's home above. Mot from our memory or from our - love. I Free from sorrow and from pain, ' Our loss. His eternal gain. We saw her suffer and heard her sighs with aching hearts and weeping eyes. We saw her sinking day by day. But now she calmly sleeps at last All pain, all aches, all suffering past The flowers we place upon her grave may wither and decay But the love we bore for her will nevor fade away. ForKotten to the world by some she may be, ' 1 ' But dear to our hearts she ever shall be. I-X12R SISTERS. WHITEHOUSE We are having a revival. Two were converted. . .
