Honesty labels Itself without blushing. Even a mol has a system of getting up In the world. The best a man can do Is the least he should try. Richmond Times-Dispatch. . WISE WORDS OF WISE MEN Hatred Is a madness of the mind. Cowards fight when they can fly no farther. It Is the Idle man who Is the miser able man. He Is most safe from danger who, , even when safe, Is upon his guard. Man was made to be active and he Is never so happy as when he is so. Shun delays, they breed remorse. Take thy time when time is lent thee. He that is ashamed to be seen in a mean condition would be proud in a splendid one. All other knowledge is hurtful to him who has not the science of honesty and good nature. He who reforms himself has done more toward reforming the public than a crowd of noisy talkers. The greatest pleasure of life Is love, the greatest treasure Is contentment, the greatest possession Is health. A wise precept for all who build la that the owner should be an orna ment to the house, and not the bouse to the owner. j True bapplnesa ne'er entered at an eye. True bapplnesa reside in things un seen. I Prepare for Cold Weather! Now is the time to install your Furnace Let me quote prices on the Glenwood, Stewart and Richardson & Boynton Furnaces.
