The law of God commands us,
“Honor thy Father and thy Mother.”
Long life is the reward promised for
keeping this first Commandment.
Every good mother wants her child
to grow sturdy in body, sane, in intel
lect and reverent in spirit. Men and
women of the world around are con
scious of the great ideals “Mother”
has for them and are now beginning
to realize her sacrifices and are rec
ognizing them by setting apart a
“MOTHERS’ DAY,” in which to
pay homage to her.
In 1914 Congress authorized and
requested the president to issue a
Proclamation for the observance of
“Mothers’ Day” on the second Sab
bath in May as a public expression of
our love and reverence for the Moth
ers of our country. This custom has
spread to other lands until it encircles
What a beautiful tribute to Mother
but to her it is justly bestowed.
Mother, the purest sweetest name
known. The child when wounded,
•bruispd and lonely feels that the
world is cruel, has a refuge 1 at the
feet of Mother. The three sweetest
words in the English language is
“Mother, Home and Heaven.”
The name of Mother is only spok
en in the lands where Christ is know
Think of the millions of children in
other lands who have never learned
to lisp the name of Mother; never
knelt beside Mother’s knee and
taught the little prayer “Now I lay
me down to sleep.”
Oh! men and women, boys and girls,
you whose Mothers are with you to
day, strive to make their pathway
through life happy and bright.
The bravest battle that ever was fought,
Khali I tel! you where and when?
On the tnup of the world you will find it not —
It was fought by the mothers of men
Not with a cannon or battle shot
With sword or mightier pen;
* Not with a wonderful word or Thought
From the lips of eloquent men.
But deep in some patient woman's heart
A woman who could not yield,
But silently, cheerfully bore her part,
Aye, there is the battlefield.
No marshalling troop, no bivouac song,
No banners to flaunt and wave,
But oh, their battles, they last so long—
From the cradle e’en to the grave.
Oh woman, while in a world of shame,
With splendid and silent scorn.
Go back to God as white as you came
The noblest warrior born.
Barrow County will honor the Moth
ers of the Nation on “Mothers’ Day”
SUNDAY, MAY BTH.
6000 are expected to be present in all
the Sunday schools of the county. Ev
Those whose mothers are dead will
wear a white rose; if living will wear
pink or red rose.
