To hare a good memory is to have sooethin that is valuable as a definite talent for music or model ing or law or medecine. Perhaps without a good niemcry, a memory well developed in certain rep"ctd. It is in-.iortible for a person to luie any special talent, for talent really rons'.sts in a faculty for turning to recount laipre3sions anl Information that you have acquired. But there are numerous persons who are not talented but who have a pood mem ory. And there Is no ivore service, able friend than a good memory for faces. A desire to be remembered is common to every human being. A man wants to be remembered throug life and he would like to be remem bered after death. Kveryoue whom he meets and who later gives evi dence of remembelng him gratifies a fundamental human craving. Every one whom he meets and who later gives evidence of having forgotten him disappoints that craving and unconsciously alienates to some de gree his friendly regard. Recently an Important city elec tion was decided by the fact that of the two contestanting candidates who were making a whirlwind campaign one could remember the new people that he met. and the other couldn't. The candidate who had this gift of pleasant memory was elected, al though Immeasurably Inferior in all other qualifications for office. It Isn't only politicians or pros pective politicians that should try to improve their faculty for remember ing people. Everyone should try to do It, for everyone who does readily remember people, contributes to the frlendlinss, nighborliness and kindli ness of life. If you are one of those who say,"I can remember names, but not faces," the probability U that you are a careless observer, so far as people are concerned. Portrait painters do not forget faces. Try to fix In the mind the characteristics features and expression of the peo ple you meet and do not Identify them too much with the clothes or hat thr.t they happen to be wearing at the moment. MR.

M. Second and Fourth Tuesday Malta Commandery No. 19 K. T. First and Third Tuesday Visiting members welcome. By L. E. Huggins For the past eighteen months prac tically everybody one comes in con. tact with has something -to say about hard ttmes. There is no doubt that conditions are much worse now than they were two years ago when the whole eountry was running in high gear without slowing down for 10-mile speed limit signs or anything else. But when we get In conversa. tion with the older citizens and learn of conditions fifty or seventy-live years ago we can't help feeling that the country hasn't yet gone to the bow-wows. When Mr. W. S. Belk of Sandy Ridge township was in The Journal office a few days ago he fell into a reminiscent mood and I saw at once that he could furnish some interesting information about con ditions that existed before the aver age Union county citizen was born. Upon request he sent us the follow ing story of the way things were done in his boyhood days: "In 18R6 I attended Sunday school at Mt. Prospect. The sessions were held from about 1 to 6 o'clock on Sunday afternoons, adjournment be. ing just in time for us to get home by sundown. The only literature we had to st idy consisted of the Bible for those who could read and for the ones who could no read the old Blue Back speller was brought into use. Went Barefoot as a Gracious Act "As it was Just after the Civil War, shoes and fine clothes were exceed, ingly scarce. I remember there was a good young lady in the community who had no shoes and she was ashamed to come to Sunday school. So all of the women for two or three miles around came barefooted in or der that this poor girl might not be embarrassed. The only shoes anybody had were home-made ones, made from home . tanned leather on a straight last. One pair a year were all a boy or girl got and on Satur. days they would grease them and use soot from pots or the chimney backs to black them with for Sunday.. Their clothes were made from cloth that had been carded, spun and wooven at home, dresses, shirts, pants and coats all made from this cloth. The boys all went barefooted. "At that time Lewis Scarborough was pastor of the Monroe circuit M. E. church, which is now divided into about four circuits, and his sal ary was $300 dollars a year. In 1867 I attended Sunday school at Bethle. hem. It was then on the Pleasant Grove circuit and Loudy Wood was the pastor. His salary was $300 a year and he had eight appointments. Thii circuit remained at $300 for six years. The first paster to receive $600 a year was Thomas H. Ed wards. I remember that Uncle Alli son Winchester at the fourth quar. teiiy meeting asked the presiding elder to send us a better preacher. The elder said we would have to pay more If we expected a better man end so Edwards was sent and the assessment doubled. But It proved a good investment for tho first year he was In the circuit the member ship almost doubled. He Won n Bible "But getting back to the Sunday schools of those days when Loudy Wood was pastor. We had good schools at all the churches and a fine picnic at Pleasant Grove on October 12, 1SC7. Brother Wood offered a prize nt each church a family Bi ble to the one that would memo rize and recite the most verses of Scripture. I won the Bible nt Both-1 ehem. He also offered a Bible to the one memorizing the most verses on the circuit. Miss Dulcemer Win chester and the late Mr. S. S. Wolfe, the great bass singer, made a tie and Mr. Wolfe agreed for Miss Win chester to have the Bible and he then bought him one Just like it. "The only singing we had were old time hymns, such as "When I can read my titlea clear to mansion in the skies," A charge to keep I h;ivc" and "How sweet the name of Jesus sounds," etc. So, young people, you see there is a great contrast between the way things are done now and fifty and sixty years' ago." A Startling Message from Paul Present standards of living re quire a great deal more money than was necessary to keep a family to gether fifty and sixty years ago, but preachers have never been paid enough to make anybody rich. In fact ministers of the gocpcl are some, times embarrassed on account of their meagre salaries. Especially is this so In small towns and rural com munities. A Marshville citizen tells a story of an embarrassing position that a good old preacher wa3 once placed in that illustrates what I am trying to say. The pastor's salary was behind and he had been buying meat and groceries on a credit. One day before leaving home to fill au appointment at one of bis chinches he told his eon to go over to Paul Jones, he country merchant, and set a piece of meat. 'I he preacher then went on to his church, took his text from some of Saint Paul's writings and was wading into his discourse like this: "And, what did Paul say?" About that time his son arrived from Paul Jones' store and heard his father's interrogation; whereupon, he immediately stepped upon the top door step and shouted: "He said you couldn't get any more meat until you paid for what you've already got." Wanted Courthouse nt Beaver Dam Marshville citizens pride them selves In calling Marshville the big gest town to Its size on the Sea board. It Is an established fact that Marshville does far more business than the average ton of Its size.

After court adjourned and the h-.an who had been on the out. iiie of too much "joy juice' had been turned loose upon payment of costs and a small fine. He went all over town "taking up" a collection to build "Beaver Dam" a courthouse. He is a radical and has little res pect for some of the traditional max iinj of finance and business, though not a socialist. His paper is outspok en against private agencies In the Is. sue of currency, dead-set against the gold standard, against the Issue of bonds, etc. Such views will not set well with the powers that be. But mark, aain. that Henrv Ford's views will largely direct the next progres sive nsevi ment. His views while vis. ionary are bcrn of the vision of a seer, and are backed by one of the world's most startling practical achievements. Moreover, In the editor of his Independent he has one of the most forceful writers to give expres sion to what are presumably his views that coi:!d be found in the whole country. Henry Ford on his own page in the THIUTY.FIVK THOUSAND YOUXU I'lUt'H TUCKS That's the NiuiiIht Now Planted in l-ee anil Hanoott (.'"unties for Commercial lurjHes IFrom the Sanford Express) Much matter has been published irf the newspapers in this section dur ing the past two or three years about the growth and developemeut of fruit industry In the sandhill country which embraces territory in Moore ' Dearborn Independent last week says and some of the adjoining counties. ; that the lime is close at hand when The growing of dewberries in the present necessity of saying many Moore and Lee was the first thing thing will be oast and a new era to a' tract attention in the fruit line. This industry has long since passed the experimental Btage and is now one of the money crops of this sec tion. Where the dewberry ha3 been intelligently grown and carefully matketed it has brought a profit to the producer that makes it worth while to grow it. Years ago people around Southern Piner the heart of the sandhill coun'ry began experimenting with peaches. They soon discovered that the sandy soil would grow as tine a peach as can be produced in any part of the country. The sandhill her? when 't will be a point to use as much as possible to keep it from be ing lost. He divides the history of the country or world Into three periods. In the first everything was plentiful and no thought of saving for future generations was taken. Then came the time when it was seen that the natural supply os some materials is limited and conservation began to be prartieed, vhile attempts to discover substitutes began in earnest. We are nearing the end of the period of con servation and the beginning of the period when there shall be an abun. dr.nce again for everybody. In water peaches soon began to attract atten-fhe finds the miracle working power, tion on account of their superior quality and presently there was a demand for them on the northern markets at prices that made it pro fitable to grow them. Soon orchads sprang up all ovet that section and the industry continued to spread un til it lapped over into the adjoin. ing counties. While the peach industry is hardly In its infancy in Lee county, yet It is destined to become a profitable business with people in this section. A few years ago Mr. E. B. Hodgin, who engaged in peach culture near Southern Pines, came over to this The stream will be harnessed and power, heat and light will become bo abundant that It v ill appear sin. ful not to use all possible of them. Abundant rnd practically free power will make the production of fertili zer from nir. the cultivation of crops, the manufacture of goods, the trans portation o: all goods ,so cheap that men may lave enough by working only an hour or two a day. His Mug. cle SlioaU proposition Is, presumably, the first step In bringing about this golden age of plenty and rest. It will be a glorious time and Is not an altogether impracticable dream, for section and bought land and put out if everybody worked now and there a peach orchard near Spouts Springs. I were a Just distribution, want would He finally sold that land and bought j flee ns the clouds of the morning, land and put out an orchard on : nut the trouble is, too many folks the Capitol Highway between the have already eHered upon their courthouse and Jonesboro. He was; period of rest and plenty before there not long in proving that the soil is enough to go round, would produce a peach that would . find great demand alter it was once Introduced. For the past two or three years he has made peach culture very profitable nnd his experience In the business has been an Inducement to others to try raising peaches for commercial purposes. Young or chards can now be found In much of the sandhill territory of this coun ty and upper Harnett and other or chards are In the making and will be put out soon. How to Help Your County Paper (From the Brockvllle Amerienn.) First of all. give the editor the news he wants it. Give it to mm. eveu though sometimes it does not get Into the paper. He hasn't time always to tell you why some pieces of news are not used are not used: but ten to one he has a perfectly good ai.d Impersonal renson.

The Cost of Courtesy (From Philadelphia Record) Just as we had abr orbed the ln- California, which states that $1,000 000 was inve.'-trd In telegraph tolls last year to transmit a single word, "rleas.e." So courtesy does cost something. If we had several months to spend in research we might find the basis for an estimate that courtesy in newspaper advertising alone costs seveial million dollars. But what ever the cost, it Is worth It. Courtesy, cordiality and sincerity rro three big factors in the success of ra advertisement. People like to do business with dealers whose mes sages radiate goodwill, a friendly spirit, a desire to please. During the recent holiday rush some stores sug gested that purchasers should carry small packages home with them In stead of having thorn delivered. The proposal was put forwrrd in the same way in which one asks a favor of a friend, and it proved very effective. Suppose the stores had said, Instead: "Postlvely no Binall packages deliv ered" can you Imagine the result? The money that the business men of the country spmd on "please," in their advertising and elsewhere, is an Investmtnt that yields handsome cash dividend!',. Cue might as well try to run a gasoline motor without oil as to dispense with this courtesy lubricant that does away with fric tion in the contracts of human relationship. Oh. Well, What of It? A band In a small Minnesota town had Just finished a vigorous but not overly harmonio'is selection. As they sank perspiring to their seats after bowing for tho applau.-e, the trom bonist asked hoarsely: "What's the next one?" " 'The Maiden's Trayer,' '5 answer ed the leader, consulting his pro gram. "Good Lord!' ejaculated the trom bonlct. "I Just got through playing that!" fetent froi'i a thing repeated by word or when the voice, a facial expres sion and a gesture perhaps, help to show its moaning. Fourth, don't worry for fear the editor is making too much money. You should want him to be piosper ous. He can and will give you a bet tir paper. He will be less likely to have compromises with his co-.ipcienee over certain kinds of adverting. And, anyhow, he enn't make a big fortune out of the paper he will be lucky If he keeps going. Fifth, be ready to tell your editor when something in the paper pleasas you. Once in a while you tell your preacher he has a good sermon, so tell the editor something about his paper. Sixth, get your copy to him early. Take It to him for the next week the day after the previous publication, If you can. It takes time to st type and make a paper. Did von ever wonder whrU the editor diifall the time be tween publication days? You would know if you were publishing a news paper yourself. Lastly, go In some day when the paper h being printed. Co in several times during the day, and you will have more of a realization of what a Job It is to make a weekly paper. Auld 1-ang Syne The Tramp: "Could ye help a starvln man, mum?"
