It sounds well; it is oheermg, byt it means little, as •o few of us live it through the year; the dav after, it is forgotten, we all go back to the old year with our grouches, envies and jealousies.

What is it that will make the world a better place in whioh to live! The answer is, HAPPI NESS. If each of us would try to make ourselves as happy and cheerful every day in the year as is oar New Year's day, the world indeed, would be improved by next Deoember. A happy greeting, a cheering ■mile is the greatest stimulus to better efforts, to a greater desire to live and accomplish. "Thoee who bring sunshine into the .lives of others can not keep it from themselves." Cheerfulness means poise. And poise makes life well balanced rosy in its oat look and life worth living. Let os forgive if we cannot for past twelve months, with j all the hardships and disappoint meats, and rasolye to make the earning year better by living real HAPPINESS. » ' Let os live together, one for all, ah for one, in a traly community spirit. Let as make a firm New Year's resolution than, to bring HAPPI NESS to others by being haf >py ourselves, and in this way make Natchitoches a better place in which to live.
