GOOD ADVICE TO YOUNG
Short Lay Sermons By Two
The Hazle hurst Courier reads
the following good lecture to one
of the young men of that city:
“We beard one of our young
men making sport of religion in
front of our office the other day.
His mustache had just begun
to sprout and judging from his
talk his menial faculties were
not as well developed as his
mustache. During our brief stay
upon eart h we have seen many
just such young men cold in
death. We have seen the atheist
at rest in Ins casket, but belore
being consigned to their last
resting place they have been car
ried through the doors of a
church and had prayers said over
them. This young man could
scoff at religion in his strength
and beauty of health, but if tlie
dark angel should get after him
he would instinctively regret
what lie said and look into the
future with fear and trembling.
When one stands before the
open door of eternity his desire
to scoff at religion vanishes.
We admit there are bad men
in the church, but even these
| black sheep in the flock might
be blacker if they were outside
No young man, or old one
either, should condemn the no
ble effort the army of Christian
i men and women are making to
wards bettering the condition
|of things, and whether we at
tend church or not but few of
ius would desire to live in a com
munity where there is no church.
You a# man, in the future, if
you must scoff at religion, please
get a little further Iroin our of
fice if you do not want to see
your name in print.
Making fun of religion is a
mighty poor business. Then'
are plenty of us in this world
who make no pretense to having
any religion, hut who neverthe
less recogni/e the great and
lasting good that religion has
done the human race. Even it
religion was a myth, as the athe
ists claim, it is a mighty pleas
ant one, and one which has don"
a great deal of good in this world
It cannot be a myth in the
light of its good works. We
can only judge a tree by its fruit.
Talking about blaspheming
God and reviling religion, this
writer, when a boy once heard
a young man do this very thing.
To his young mind it was
something terrible. This writer
has watched this man in aftei
life and the fact is that he ha'>
hardly had a well day since.
He has been greatly atUicted
with a malady which has filled
his body with pains. The fact
that lie reviled religion and made
fun of sacred things may noi
have had anything to do with it.
but the fact remains that since
that day he made that speech he
has hardly seen a well day, pro
duced upon the mind of this
writer an impression that will
be everlasting. Young men, be
ing unthoughtful, are apt' to
think that it is smart to display
their antipathy towards religion,
but there is nothing smart in it.

Letter to GOODMAN BROS.
Dear Sir: Now, may be, you
can’t get the goods; if you can,
your fortune is made.
Cotton cloth —they call it mus
lin in some parts—at about the
usual price per yard, hut wider,
twice as wide as some and better,
wears better, keeps white and
whole a surprising time in aii
sorts of wear.
You could sell that cloth for
hundreds of miles; there’d be no
A yard goes further; one buys
less yards. Wears longer; one
buys less often. It always looks
right till well worn-out. No one
customer buys so much of it, but
th ink of the number of customers!
May be that you can’t get it in
cloth: but you can in paint: Dev
oe Devoe is as if it were wider;
a gallon goes further; you buy
less gallons; you pay for less gal
lons; you pay for painting les*
gallons —as if one paid less for
making a garment of that wide
cloth —and it keeps its fresh
looks and sheds water till you
have forgotten how old it is.
Il isn’t true in cloth, but il is
it paint: the less you pay, the
better it is; for the goodness of
paint is reckoned by gallons; less
gallons, more goodness. Good
ness in paint is strength. The
stronger a paint, the less
it takes for a job and the longer

lamented Capt. and Mrs. H. A,
We sincerely sympathize with
L *st we might possibly be
misunderstood or the wrong im
pressioh create*!, vve wish to
"ay that the News has no favor
ites among its subscribers and
we wish to treat each and <v' *j• v r
one, singlely and collectively, as
parents should their children -
lovingly and impartially we ccr
t iinly wish each and every one
food health, happiness and
We are hard at work in season
and out of season when ym,
subscribers, are taking your ease
and may be cruely criticising us
for not doing better in ev<-y
If so it is not more I Sian many
children do for their natural pa
rents. btit they love them none
the loss. Just a little turn of tie
hand would help the old man
and old woman powerfully.
Lets try it one week; belter
one month. If it don t work we
will yield the suggestion.
Orange Herrington, of Joins
county, a prominent and educa
ted farmer, does not believe that
geese would be worth a grrnit
deal to cotton fields infested
with Johnson grass, from the
fact that it gets tough so soon
that they could not eat it. How
ever. he cites experiences to
show that crab grass can be kept
down in this way. lie cites the
experience of Mr. C. H. Hush,
wh o lives near Laurel. Mr.
Bush planted a piece of land in
cotton; made four bales the first
years, five the next and six the
third, and there was never a hoe
put into it. It was kept clean
by the geese—Laurel Chronicle.
