rests iu the bosom of God, but lift
your eyes off the vacant chair and
the lifeless form and behold mother
in Heaven.
So while it was sad to part with
her hereon earth, preparo for that
great meeting will be when God will
wipe all tears from our eyes and sad

HOW ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Did you ever stop and meditate
seriously over your job and just
what that job means to you ?
If you are either in business ot
professional life your job pays tin
rent or the taxes for the h(,us< ov-.
your head, buys the food and clothing
for you and for those dependent
upon you, and all else that enters
into the needs of the ordinary life
and gives happiness and well-being
to those at home.
If your job is at home it means
that you have a chance to keep ex
penses within reason while making
the place bright and happy and a
real home—a place where love ami
joy and confidence reign suprunie.
But that’s not all—not by a long
shot. Your job is your chance tc
make good, and to make more thar
good. Good is all right but better
than good is best.

If your job ik a grind, your work a

of that spirit. Results come to a

Perhaps you thing resulls are slow

What I Do Not Believe
(By Wihiam Leavitt Stoddard,) in
Collier’ November, 11th, 1922.
A PRESENT-DAY philosopher, in
discussing the njiyits of doubt, sums
up thus: “What we do not believe
• is just as important as—probably
! more important than—what we be-j
lieve.”
1. I do not believe that the country j
is (a) going to the dogs; or (b)
turning Bolshevist. It never has.'
It won’t.
2. I do not believe that we have!
never had a crisis such as this
one. We are always facing a cris
is. It’s good for us.
ii. I do not believe that there is a
plot to over throw the Government |
and set up either a Wall Street or1
a labor soviet. I am too old to put]
faith in bogies except on the golf!
links. Moreover, I have read his-'
tory.
4. 1 do not believe that flappers, pro-j
hibition, the tariff, or the mayors!
of Now York and Boston will in
crease vice and the high cost of
living. If these increase, we, the
j people, are really to blame.
6. I do not believe- that mv con
gressman is wiser than I am. Hence
I do not expect him to solve prob
lems that I can’t solve.
0. I do hot believe that Main
.Street is the main street of Amen-1
ea. It is Elm Street, whore people j
much difference “what Europe thinks ■
of us.” Can Europe think? And
can’t we?
7. 1 do not believe that it makes
live, not where they work.
8. I do not believe that all Pres
byterians, all Catholics, all Epis
copalians, all members of all sects
are narrow bigots. I refuse to be
lieve anything but the best Of any
religion.
9. I do not believe that the Jews,
the Irish, the Yankees, the farmers,
Henry Ford, La Follette, the bank
ers, or the trusts either control A
merica or that they want to. Amer
icans control, America.
10. I do not believe that the jazz
or movies is wrecking the home.
When a home is wrecked is it in
variably dons by (a) a husband,
ib) the wife, or (c) the mother
in-law.
11. I do not believe in Socialism,
I'aptalism, Communism, Christianity,
or Americanism as now practiced.
'.Ve require a judicious and im
proved mixture of all five with
more of the last two.
12. I do not believe in being
afraid of birth, life, death, disease,
politicians, crime, climate, labor, or
i apital. I do not believe in tearing
anything but God and the facts.
13. I do not believe that we plac?
sufficient faith in huina'n beings
and humanity.
14. I do not believe that we shall
get through next winter, next year,
this Congress, or existence unless
we exercise the two chief attributes
of man; namely (a) the brain and
(b) the power of laughter.
good unless you make good. Every
one in every business and in every
home should idealize that, more than
ever before, success depends upon
loyalty and work. Unless you can
say to yourself that you are doing
your best every minute you are not
on the job, you are not doing your
part.
Make the most of your job. It’s
work that counts. Go to it and win.

\BOUT THE CREDIT FARMER
i
A few days ago while discussing
he Farm Bureau and the eo-opeia
tive marketing of cotton with a
farmer, he added: ‘“The Plan is
good and in my*-opinion the oaly
one that will ever add more prof
its to the cotton produce's pocket
book, but it does not solve the
problems of the man who needs
if most; that is, the man who is
tied to the credij; merchant.”
It is our opinion that the credit
merchant is as anxious to change
the system as the farmer. In con
versation with one a few days ago
he stated: “Thirty percent of ray
credit customers don’t pay their
debts one year out of two.1 In order
to keep from going broke, I must
charge a good price on goods to
take care of losses and overhead
expenses. It is hard for sime to
lire under this system, but on the
other hand it seems to be what
others want. I know the system is
not tight, personally, 1 Would love

I hope the day for that is near at
hand.”
This credit problem can be solved
for every farmer’s got>;l : add the
good of others concerned. There
is a way. Farmers and business
men must come together and es
tablish the farmers’ business organ
ization, the Mississippi State Farm
Bureau, and set up the Mississippi
Cotton Growers’ Marketing Assoc
iation and other commodity assoc
iations as a beginning of the solution
of the problem. The campaign for
membership in the first is now ir
