Gul.
in His all-wise Trovi
dtnee, has si fixed it that the
things in this world that we get
that are really worth while, that
mt an jnf.st to us. must need cort
u.- something. The more valua
ab:" the tl ir g we acquire, the
greater the cost to some one.
1. is true we m3y sometimes
get things most valuable to us
that cost us very little; but that
something has cost Borne one
very much.
Our very existence-our lives,
;t if true -doesn't seem to have
r st us much, but back of that
:s t ie pain and anxiety of the
parents and, many times, long
tnd wakeful hours at night and
emler care that we may live.
Salvation is free to us, but
back of that is the anguish and
suflVring and death of the im
maculate One, Jesus Christ our
Iord and Savior. YeB, our Bat.
vation is precious to us, but it
cost Jesus, Paul, Peter, John,
Stephen and many others very
much.
In a political way let me say
that we live, thank bod, in a
country where freedom and lib
erty are the foundation stones
of the government
J his freedom and liberty we
love, we cherish. While this
means much to us -means all in
a political wav - let us not forget
that it cost much. It cost the
brave mm of '76 privation, hun
ger, exposure to the cold and
heat. It cost them s!eeples
nights, weary fett. It cost them
wounds, loss of limbs, loss cf
health and loss of life in many
cases. Not only was the cost to
the men, but the dear women
and children came in for their
t.art in hunger, trouble and anx
lety, in the loss ol tr.cir mis,
h isband and fathers. Hut thase
of the brave men that were left
cime marching gallantly fcjme
from Bunker Hill, Valley Foige,
Princeton, Trenton, Brandyw ine,
Saratoga, Ycrktown and other
bloody fields.
Yes, gallantly and triumphant
ly did they comn home and once
proudly laid at the feet of those
they loved our forefathers
thi liberty we have since en
joyed. For years even generations
has this grand country of ours
the greatest on the globe-safe y'
basked in the light of liberty.
Hjw we cherish it! How we
can, with pride, toast that
throughout its whole domain no
edict of king, monarch or despot
has ever been promulgated and
that ours is tiuly "a land of the
tree and the home oi me crave.' tor several years before accept
And now, dear friends', in this inR the a9flistant cashier-ship of
goody tar of 1918, we are called lhe Farmers Bank which iilace

our sacred principles of free

only to combat it and drive it
away from our own dear coun
ry, but we are called on to cross
the s?a and give to the oppress-

blessings of L'berty-a gov

people and for the people.
To this end our boys are called

LETTER FROM
J. B. GILL
Former Crittenden County
Writes From Dccison,
Texas.
Man
Mr. S. M. Jenkins:
I told you I would write you,
but I have been running around
since I left Kentucky and so J
could not get the chance sooner.
.We have bought a litrje place
near Denison, Tex., just inside
incorporation but can't get pos
session until January.
I have been as far in Texas as
Commerce. This w hole country
is nice and most generally level
and rich limestone land, raise
lots of wheat, oats and cotton
kafTer and sorghum but not much
corn.
They have nice towns, fine
clean streets and good roads par
ticularly in Texas. This is they
say the dryest year they have
ever had, and the corn is near a
failure, gardens dried up and no
prospects of rain. Cotton the
main money crop is very light
and if it don't rain soon wont be
one half a crop.
Well I can't tell you how well
I would like to be back there few
days and see all my old acquain
tances and friends I promised to
write to- We, Mrs. Gill and I
have been as well as we gener
ally are or better. We don't
know much what is going oc
back there only 'through the
Fress. Hope you are all having
good rains and getting on 0. K.
We get daily papers every morn
ing and evening from the war
and I want to see up to the last
minute. With best wishes I am,
J. B. Gill.
