Dear Editor :
Here are some lines I am writ
ing to my daughter ; thought you
might like to have them for our
Rockingham, Route 3, August
"ily dear little girl, some day you'll
anxiously and lovingly I've
watched yon grow-
I'Sseing things to make me sad.
Then many others to make me glad.
Perhaps I've expected too much of
More than your childish hands could
Your pride and love have urged me ou,
To make your life pure and sweet as
A dawn that is cloudless, fresh, sweet
So your life to be a joy without any
When throtsgh the dark night some
have waited long,
May your life to them be as singing
birds each morn.
Beauty cf form and face how soon
And onlv noble, pure lives count at
So then whjle going to the close of
Say and do the good things that pass
' no,t- away. "
Ypur life is not as free as you would
like !t to be,
But I've some treasures entrusted to
. m a, ,..
And I must give account some day
How I've cared for these treasures
more precious than gold.
If in the end you should fall, dear
And your life be useless, free and
The days and years I've given to thee
Will only bring sadness and sorrow
I'm praying and longing that you will
And be the noble woman God would
have you be;
So in the end whten life is done '
He'll say to Us: "Mine own faithful,
WHO SAID THAT?
Never pass along an Unkind
about some one else.
Even though it's True!
Because you're Not 8ure it's Entirely
Somebody may have Exaggerated the
tale Just a wee bit in giving it
And that "wee bit" may ruin the Rep
utation of a Person who never
did you any harm!
None of us are entirely Good or en
We've all done the wrong thing once!
And all of us can use all the Good
Will and Friendliness there
happens to be in the world.

Against a Field of Twelve Con
tenders the Lexington Thor
oughbred Established Record
for Economy at Norfolk, Va.
"We beat 'em again" is the
word just received by the local
exington dealer, when the
Minute-Man' Six hung up anoth
er record to its credit. .
This time it is for economy,
and won over a field of twelve
contenders with a showing of
24 1-2 miles to the gallon. The
record was made at , Norfolk,
Va., upon a heavy track, churn
ed into mud as cars of all makes
and kinds struggled for su
premacy. In the final showing the Lex
ington entry swung easily into
first place. This victory for
economy was made over cars
ight and heavy, and all classes
and descriptions, many of the
finest cars in America being rep
resented. Other recent Lexington victo
ries were made when a Lexing
ton won a $5,000 New York open
hallenge for stock cars, cover
ing gasoline economy, acceler
ation or "get away," fast speed
on high gear, low speed on high
gear, high gear power on hills,
and fast power on hills.
One hundred and nine cars
accepted the challenge and a
Lexington Minute-Man Six stock
car defeated all of the contest
ing cars on all points.
Again when two Lexingtons
finished first and' second in the
Pike's Peak Hill-Climb classic
in face of a blinding snow storm,
they won a world's victory over
cars of all makes and kinds,
some of them especially built.
The two Lexington winners
were stock cars with the excep
tion of their special bodies.
