THE OLD AND THE Nr.W
In a few days we will say
goodby, adieu, farewell to the
historical year 1912 forever. As
it slips away from us, with all of
its memories, it awakens a cord
of pain in our hearts as we think
it will be everlastingly gone, with
its sunshine and its shadows, its
joys and its pains: its many op
portunities employed or disre
garded. We cannot bring it back
and many of us wouldn't if we
could.
However, most, if not all of us
tenderly cling to the old year
with our memories and affections
while we hopefully and prayer
fully reach out for the new
with all of its uncertainties.
To many of us the old year has
been kind, in many degrees;
while with many more the dark
side has been turned a shadow
has fallen and the mantle of sor
row has wrapped its somber folds
about them.
In looking back over the past
year, mo3t of us see where we
made mistakes, did many things
that we should not have done,
and left undone many things
we should have done mostly,
however, the fault of the head
and not of the heart. We have
learned many things during the
past year, no matter how old we
may be; and, if we are wise, we
will profit by our experience.
In many things it is well to judge
the future by the past; while in
some other ways it is best to let
the dead past bury them and
press onward and upward al
ways sure that we are climbing
and not falling.
Let us, one and all, dear read
ers, adopt a motto that is well
calculated to make us better
men, women and children, and
then resolve to live by it. So
far as the humble editor of the
Champion is concerned, we can
not think of a better one than
that proclaimed by the angels
at the birth of Christ: "Peace
on earth, goodwill towards
men."
Our readers will observe that
we arc, begining with this issue,
publishing the Price List of the
Blacksmiths, Horseshoers and
Wagon Makers' of Oklahoma, as
taken from their Annual Year
Book of 1912. We do this most
ly for the benefit of our farmers,
that they may know beforehand
about what such work will cost
them, and also whether or not
their mechanics are doing the
rijfht thins by them.
