Thought for Our Young People.
Some years ago every young:
man was striving to enter ;
the professions; now they are
going into the world of business.
The fortunes of our country are
in its business. The Goulds,
Vanderbilts, Carnegies, Stew
arts, and Armours are found!
in the counting houses, the fac- j
tories, the packing houses; thej
wealth of your town, young,
reader,is in business; it is so in j
every town and city. The pro-!
fessions are overcrowded; busi-j
ness will never be so The law j
does not offer such prizes as mer- j
chandising; medicine, not half;
the wealth of manufacturing; |

compared with mining or finance, j
The professions require many j
years to insure even a living in-1
come; business pays from the!
start. But, for business you!
must have a business education.
Get, then a business education, |
get the best in the best schools;'
in other words, attend the Mem- j

AN EASY ARKANSAN.
Stripling Stripped of Seven Thousand
Dollars by Hot Springs Woman—
Victim Was from Lake Village.
Hot Springs, Feb. 11. —G. T.
Stripling, an unsophisticated
visitor from Lake Village, Ark.,
allowed himself to be victimized
out of almost $7,000 by an at
tractive alleged St. Louis widow,
who gave the name of Mrs. A.
F. Bauer, and to whom he paid
$6,900 in cold cash without se-j
After finding that the woman 1
had boarded a train for the North, j
Stripling reported the matter to!
the police today. They can not'
order the woman held, even it i
she is iocated, they say, as
Stripling himself says she simply j
borrowed the money.
Stripling, wno is about 55, be-!
came infatuated with the woman,
and says he lent her money for j
the ostensible purpose of start- r
ing a rooming-house. She prom
ised, he asserts,'to return in a
few hours with first mortgage
on the property as security, but.
instead departed on the next
train for an unknown destina-s
ro the Memory of Little Pauline Davis.
A year in heaven for her, what is she learning
Of holy things, of things divine and true"
What glorious visions there are still unfolding, !
Which here she never knew.
Did angel friends await her at her coming?
Did angel faces greet her with a smile?
Was that deal mother eager to receive her, i
Whom she had lost awhile?
A year cn earth for us without her presence,
A year of loneliness, grief and pain;
But still we smile amid our tears in thinking,
Our loss is but her gain.
We miss her in our joys and in our sorrows.
She was our life, our center and our sun;
Yet we would not call her back, hut whisper,
“O Father, Thy will he done." X.

LOST BOTH CHILDREN.
Two Children Succumb to Pneumonia
Within fifteen Minutes of
The home of W. Burlison, liv
ing on the Will Edmund’s farm
in Oil Trough bottom was left
cheerless Saturday night, when
! both the little ones that contrib
uted much of the joy to this i
happy home, were taken within
fifteen minutes of each other.
Both had contracted pneumo
nia. Yernie, a two year old girl
and Lee. a four months old boy,
died at 9:45 and 10 o’clock Satur
day night. The burial was held
Sunday and to the bereaved pa
rents is extended the sympathy
of all who learn of this sad case.
The large auditorium of the
Methodist church was pretty well
taxed Sunday at both services, >
the sermons being ably delivered
by the visiting evangelist, Rev.
W. M. McIntosh.
The sermon on the ‘‘Goodness;
of God’s Love” at 11 o’clock was
one of the strongest sermons to j
tne unsaved mat nas ueen
preached during the meeting,
and which resulted in many giv
ing their hands as pledges to
live a better life. The evening
sermon was on the popular sins
of the day, the speaker, using
strong terms to express his be
lief as to the evils of such lives.
The meeting is accomplishing
great good and people are urged
The music of the splendid choir
under the direction of Mr. C. E.
Crook, deserves much praise for
its excellence. The special music j
at both services Sunday was ably i
rendered and much enjoyed by
the large congregation.
