Algood Dear Editor and Family: Once more the red-birds are singing their gay songs and the buds came out on the sun-kissed larch. Will you permit me to write upon a subject which is very es sential to all the Herald family. The power of the tongue, many times do we find the blood-hounds set on the track of an innocent man by the slanderer's tongue, creating a noise like thunder and causing shock to the general pub lic as if the earth were split wide open and fume and smoke of hel were thrown to the heights o the skies. I care not if he be i i 11 i your mend raising aoout your neighbor, give no heed to what he may tell you regarding a man for whom he has no love. My enemy may be your best friend, anyway we snouid condemn no man unheard, for there are al ways two sides to a report, even if there is a very good man hold ing one side. Let us be careful in believing what we hear of others and very careful and cau tious in repeating it as some writer once said: "Believe noth ing against another 'except on good authority, nor report what may hurt another unless it be. greater hurt to others to conceal it. There can be no doubt but there are many broken hearts and sad faces which are only so many inscriptions deeply engrav ed upon those sad faces and brok en hearts by the fiery tongue of demons in human form. I am one of the correspondants of the bureau of statistics of Putnam County and to the School teachers who teach agriculture: if you will send to the Secretery of Agriculture, Washington, D. C, he will send you free some publications, which will be help ful. James Oscar Rector. DISSOLUTION NOTICE By mutual consent the firm of Whit son & Barnes Hardware Co. is this day dissolved.
