Hits euuy, wnn u Mr. Thertell speaks of, followx: "The best friend a man has in this world may turn ai-'ainsl him and become his netiiy. Hut son or riaiiRliter that h has reined with loviiiK cure may prove uiuraielul. Those who are neatest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our Kood name, may become traitors to t heir faith. The money that a man has he may lose. It flies awav from him, perhaps when he needs It most. A luan'H reputation may be sacrincen in a moment of Ill-considered ac tion. The people who ate prone to fall on their knees lo do us honor when success Is with us may be the first to throw thf stone or malic when failure settles Its cloud Upon our heads. The one absolute, unsel fish friend that man ran have in this selhsh world, the one that never de serts him. the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. Gentlemen of the jury, a man's dog stands by him In prosperity and In poverty. 'in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely. If only he ran be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come !n encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. Vhen all other friends desert he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces he is as constant In his love as the sun In Its Jovirnev through the heavens. If for tune drives the master forth an out cast In the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accom panvlng him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies, and w hen the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master In its embrace and his bodv is laid away In the cold ground, no matter If all other friends pursue their way, there by his erave- ja3tXXAXXXVXNNXXXNXVXXXXX1S Pay Your Taxes Those failing to pay their taxes by the 16th day of April will have their prop erty advertised for sale.

And licked 'em fair and square, I'd loll amid the blossoming trees And never know a care. The following interesting story concerning S. t.lenn loiing, the noted tovernment officer, and his famous Belgian police dog, was sent from Hickory to the Greensboro News: "The ISclgiaii police dog, which is one-hall Kussiau won hound, and the oilier half intelligence, attracted nore atieuiiou here than any dog ev r at l raced before. He was worthy ol not ire. Long, ;-. ml slender, a com imiatlou between the gicvhound and ollie, and wiih the looks of a wolf. I'al was good to look Upon. He is 2i mouths old, has been wounded in the ,vai and received Iter.lmcnt lit the l amp .!;ii'kon hospital. " That dog." said his owner, 'will giiit r.l prisoners same as a man. I can , in a hunch in a cncle, leave l'al iu riiaiM' and they will be there when I return. Or 1 can leave him in a room with a half dozen men and they will ta there." 'I'al will go lo a lintel office desk. lake a key handed lo him, ring the levator bell and ride to his room. He will turn on the water and wallow in the tub. He is fond of bathing. When Mr. Young was leaving Hick ory tor Ashetioro he leu the nog in charge of his baggage. Including a rifle, which were placed on a truck. Persons who approached too close were warned by the dog, which never closed an eye. "'HI had that dog.' observed a lo cal officer. 'I could do a big business raiding blockades. All he wants Is a look and he does the rest. I'll say he is some dog.'" A I'nion county boy, who was In the army of occupation for nearly Ave months, has recleved an Interest ing letter from a German glti. the daughter of the woman In whose house he was billeted for some time. The letter was written In German, but Major Hugh Hinde. who Is pro ficient in several languages, translat ed It with apparent ease. The letter follows: Wiesbaden, Germany. Pear : How are you since you are come over the water? I hope that you are right well. I was very sorry indeed that I could not see you again to say farewell and goodbye. I or ten think of you and the sweet hour that we spent together. M female cousin will go to America as soon as she can get a passpoit Much would I wish lo go to America with her, but I am sorry that German money has but little value In foreign coun tries. "We have to give as much as 102 marks for the American dollar. A franc in Germany Is worth seven marks forty pfennigs. A voyage to South America costs nearly 2.000 German marks, and that Is too much for the Journey. I hnve not Bpoken much Kngllsh. but I will learn It lat er. When you left Bltburg we had more Americans than they were from Texas or from Oklahoma and belong ed to the PO Division. Later I will have learned a lot more in Wiesbaden In the town of the Court and Baths. Here we have French occupation troops and but few Americans. It is horrid that you are not here still.

Tilly is !n the English Offico so my sister writes me. The last Americans left here 14 days ago for home and now there are only French in Hitburg. Il appears there are also F.nglish there or else Tilly could not be in an Eng lish Office. What are you doing now-. I hope that ton will like it belter a civilian than as a soldier and will do belter. Write me one lime. I ask you how lhe means of earning a live lihood are in America. According to what they say here it will le pretty hard for you in America. Write me one time and tell me how things are going.
