SUJBSCRIPTION :1.100 A YEAR Frankllnton, La., April 22, 1915 Announcements For Clerk of Court The Era.Leader is authorized to announce CARTER C.

The Era-Leader is authioirized to an nounce IROBIRTR BABIN'TON as a candidate for Clerko ( Co!rt-sub ject to the action of the detlIratic primaries. it's 1;) TI'f Us. A paragraph is flitting around in the press to the effect that 'the future may be bright for soume,' but the road will always be dark for others." Of course some pessimist wrote it, for pessimists always mill around in the shadows. Asa matter of hard fact, this world is always just about what we choose to make it. If we pull a long face and go out hunting for troubles, VWE WILL FIND THEM-in buncihes. If we saddle ourselves withli a case of the blues in the miorning, and hang onto it with a death gripp all day, and take it to bed with us att night, we will probably I find life's pathway shrouded in looni. ;ut it will be of our own mraking, nd we will ie gettini only that :wlici wte sought. I ut how different is the other side? God inflicts us all with certain troubles, hbut Hl e also gives us brains, and determination, and a will power with which to rise above the petty ;perplexities and tribulations of life. The bright side of existetice i' all around us- in fruit of us everywihere we turil-'onsttiintl y inocking for admission. It is ours for the taking. TIhe man or womanI who can - not feel thankful for the piure air, and bright sunshine, and three meals a day, is something less than a normal human being. There is a screw loiise soimewhere. Even the animals of the earth and the birds of the air are not so degenerate in their class, for they seek always for the brightness of life. And is our intelligence and our will power inferior to theirs, that we should live witu an ache and die with a grunt? Every trouble inleicted upon us is for our own ultimate good, they are inlinitestimnal whenconlm pared with the joys of a bright mind, a clear conscien'e and a determination to reap to the full est of life's blessings. If the road is dark to soime, it is because they do not use the brains which God gave them in overcoming the obstacles which He is His wisdom has placed in their pathway. Our future is up to us, to make or to mar as we choose. Good times are ahead of those who go after them. But the lag gard will always have a grunt coming.
