PKOGRESSIVE FARMER AND COTTON PLANT. 15 SUNSHINE COLUMN NORTH CAROLINA DIVISION OF INTER NATIONAL! SUNSHINE SOCIETY. Has. J. M. Kansxkr, state President, Hen- aenonvuie. . u. MRS. RAHSIER'S LETTER. MlscelUneoxxs Sonny Suggestions from Sunshine Headquarters. What's the true test of living ? A life that's spent in giving. What's death without awaking? A life that's spent in taking. When the sunbeams cheer thy way, Do they ask thee to repay? When the bright flowers paint the sword, Do they do it for reward? When the bird sings clear and long, Does he want thanks for his song? Give talent, thought and voice To bid God's world rejoice. v Give work and love and will, Give golden time and skill. Pour freely out thy whole, Thyself, thy very soul, To bless thy fellow-men, Nor ask for aught again. And, as thou givs't thy very store Shall grow, not less, but more. Alice Ring. There are people in this world who would dearly love to be liberal if it did not cost anything. But when it comes to practicing a little self-denial or doing anything that inconveniences themselves they im mediately "beg to be excused." Per haps it is just that they are asked to do something that they don't like to do. That is sufficient reason in their mind, for a refusal. Or per haps it is something to be done or said that might draw the eyes of the world (at least as much of it as i3 present) to them and unpleasant criticisms would follow.' I remember one time I myself did not do a sunshine act because it would have made me conspicuous to the crrouD of onlookers. I shall 7 never cease to regret it. The man-fearing spirit should be exterminated from our make-up; if we have any of it, let's begin our extermination right away. We all have something we can give to help our fellow man. We all have some thing we can pass on to help make the old world brighter. GIVE WHAT YOU HATE One day, on the steps of one of the public buildings of Florence, Italy an old disabled soldier sat playing a violin. By his side stood a faithful dog. In the mouth of the dog was the old veteran's hat. Now and then a passer by would drop in a coin. A gentleman, pass ing, stopped and looked at the pic ture. He stepped up and asked for the violin, tuned it, and began to play. The sight of a well-dressed man playing a violin in such a public place, and with such association, at tracted the passers by and they stopped. The music was so charming that they stood enchanted while the num ber of contributions -largely in creased. The hat became so heavy that the' dog growled, so it was emp tied to be filled again. The company grew until a crowd was gathered. jj.jflK yk Jf. A. Al. Jk. Jk. A. .V. .V. A. 'jk. JK JFL a mm ai Fiano .ihiau Do you know Andrews? Ask your neighbor, or auy passerby.

The performer played one of the national airs, handed the violin back to the owner and quietly withdrew. One of the company said, "This is Amard Bucher, the world renowned violinist. He did this for charity; let us follow his example." Mr. Bucher did not give a penny, but he gave something better his ability. If you cannot give money to help spread sunshine, give all the ability God has given you, and at least send your name in for our Sunshine books. "If you can sit down at set of sun, And count the acts that you have done; And counting find One self-denying act, one word That eased the heart of him who heard ; One glance most kind, That fell like sunshine where it went, Then you may count that day well spent. But if through all the livelong day You've cheered no heart by yea or nay; If through it all You've nothing done that you can trace, That brought the sunshine to one face; No act most small, That helped some soul, and nothing cost, Then count that day as worse than lost." yvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvivvvvvvvvvvvvii Coori UHlof Aatc Pud nnuon anrt Pino ouuu iiiiouo, vabd, uyo, uiuvoi ami lvayo Fob0 Ssef We offer to the farmers of North Carolina the following seeds : 1.000 Bushels Turkey Island Wheat at $1.60 per bushel.
