If any little love of mine May make a life the sweeter; It any little care of mine Mar make a friend's tbe fleeter; If any lift of mine may ease The burden of another; God give me love, and care and strength To help inv toiling brother. Bv this old English hymn I am re minded of a letter which was written to our cir 9 le of King's Daughters and read by our secretary at our last meet ing. TfaouRb in a distant state through her "dear old home paper" (Tbo Ad vertiser) sfaa had learned of oar circle in Lexington and a deep sorrow was her justification and claim to a neart felt sympathy from our members. From tbe furnace of pain and sorrow only, is real sympathy learned, the kind that gives an answering throb to tbe grief of others. This Heaven sent gift of sympathy, oft born of a great pain, and anguish carries strength and resistance to tbe lonely soul against tbe waves that threaten to engulf and gives new inspiration and hope in the place of despair. Despite the fact that a number of circles had no delegate nor had sent anv report of receipts, the ninth an nual convention of the state branch of King's Daughters noted the gratifying sum of |24,000 bad passed through their hands for the past year, disburse ments $2\00. The offer for a site for the "Rescue Home" was given by a prominent lawyer of Natcboz, Hon. Ernest E. Brown, on condition that the work of building should begin not later than January, 1911. In view of tbe sum, for this work, which was expected to pass through tbe state officers' hands within tbe next year or two, a motion was passed that these officers make a bond of $5,000 each. A deep interest is shown by tbe la dies who attend Dr. Hull's lectures on home nursing. Many ladies who are given to deep and serions thinning, gladly seise any opportunity to supple ment their knowledge by anything that adds to their strength as wife, mother and friend. Not for "hours of ease" are these pupils conning their lessons, but for darker hours of "pain and anguish" when thoir ministra tions to loved ones may have tbe power to comfort and bless. The King's Daughters will hold their meeting for November with Mrs. Flora Herrman. The second Friday in every month is our regular meetng. A KING'8 DAUG HTER.

A Yea* Destined to Be Epochal in Lexington's History The advertisement of every business interest and professional man in Lex ington should appear in the Mid Au tumn number for the following rea sons, exclusive of 908 others which lack of space forbids a mention of: 1. The price charged is the same as for ordinary issues—which, by the way is much below current rates else where, in smaller towns and in papers with much smaller circulations. 2 A larger clientele will be reach ed, sav between 85,000 to 75.000 read res The weekly issues of the Adver tiser are; read by from 10,000 to 15,000 people. On that basis,tbe rates should nave been much higher, but our efforts are to help to advance Lexington and not to reap any mercenary gains. To pay expenses is all we figure 3 That particular copy of tbe Ad vertiser will be preserved in every home. It will not be read only once bnt many times It will be shown to every visitor who calls. If you expect to be in business ten years from now, and von all do, your advertisement in that issue will be of added value then. Customers of the next decade will give preference to the progressive spir it evinced in the past. They will look over the Mid-Autumn Number, 1009, of the Advertiser and give their busi ness to the man who ten showed his progressiveness ence to the new man who comes in and hopes to reap the"nnearned incre ment" of previous efforts. 4. This year is destined to be ''epochal" in tne history of Lexing ton. A "Business League" is now an actuality. Ten years will fully demon strate tbe importance of the event. This year is the natal year of "Greater Lexington." You want your name recorded as one of tbe pioneers.as one who foresaw, knew, and uesired to ac complish the achievements that ten years from now will show 5 This is the only real effoit ever made to specially putLexington before tbe outside public sinco its establish ment close to a century a#p. A few excellent, though partial, efforts have been made in tbe past to "boom" Lexington. Tbe Mid Autumn number is not intended for a "boom" in the general mushroom sense of the word. It will be a presentation of facts, pure and simple. The written articlos will be by prominent citizens of tbe town, and not by foreign professionals, who travel from place to place, using tbe same verbiage in every city they 'hit" and can induce tbe people to subscribe to This, while admirable, in every essential, as far as it goes, is not as true and representative a presentation as can be made by borne people. 0. The northwest and west is rapid ly getti ng overcrowded. ' 'U ncleSam ' ' is no longer" rich enougn to give os all a farm." Tbe public domain is all taken up. For tbe last ten years an average of 80,000 farmers per year have left the northwest and gone to Canada in search of homes. There is plenty of room in tbe South for thrifty and enorgetic people. Land is cheap, and the rewards of industry ample Tbe special issue of tbe Advertiser will reach many who are on tbe lookout for a place to locate. The many pic tures of the nice cosy homes will at tract their attention. They will be come interested and at once look tbe papet over to see if there are any ad vertisements of land for sale. Every person who bas a tract of land—wheth er city or farm property—which be desires to sell, should not fail to have an advertisement in that issue Tbe cost is so low and tbe opportunities of effecting sales so alluring that no one on. years past in prefer can afford to miss tbe chance: 7. Every outsider who receives sf' copy of the Mid-Autniun number will' naturally take it for grantod that eve ry concern is represented in tbe adver tising columns. He will count the ad-. vertisements and base bis estimate of the town upon them. It will be con sidered a directory terests of Lexington. It is thus highly essential that every line of business be" represented in order that Lexington's* merits as a business center be not un de (estimated. of the business in decent experience*. A tew days ago I was called, by tel ephone, to Howard to attend tbe fu neral services of Mr. Barlows, famil iarly known as Johnnie Barlowe. Hu was a native of Ireland, coming so this country in early like, and drifting from place to place be soon lost all connection with tbe mother country. But notwithstanding hi* roaming dlspostiion, his habits were so exem plary that he won many lasting friend*. During bis latter days he became m infirm that he could not work, and some of these friends provided him with a home, food, clothing and other attentions. For twenty years he so lived, add when dead, was buried by them Such beautiful friendship waa manifested by Mr. John Howard. Six or eight men, practically all who were able about the place, followed the remains to tho old Rankin bury ing ground, probably the highest point in this part of Mississippi. There the people of a past generation sleep. While tbe diggers were com pleting the grave the writer made a trip of inspection around the ground*. One lone slab stiil stands, marking tbe grave of a child. Other graves have caved in, and a wall enclosing a lot has fallen to pieces, leaving only depressions to toll where the loved ones of another generation, themselves filling graves in many places, sleep. Some heartless wretch has crept over the dead to steal the brick from around one or mere of their graves. A mote desolate and deserted place I have not seen. Some odo of the fu neral paitv crushed between their fin gers, fragments of marble from some of tbe slabs, into fine white dust. Thus, have not only the bodies of the forgotten people, passed back into the earth, from which they wore taken, but it seems that the very matble is following them. Yet, at this lonely spot, tbe old man desired to be al lowed to spend bis long repose. Why? J. W. DORMAN. Lexington, Miss , October 20, 1909. J.
