We are all pruned to advise others how to do but dislike for
others to advise us how to do.

If the southern farmers and business men will hold out
they will win the fight over the speculators.
yow is the time for every man to he optimistic instead of
predicting direful happenings. Look on tin* bright side.
The extremest is the man who is always getting others into
trouble and is never able to get them out of it.
A level-headed man, who thinks wisely and does not talk too
much, will avoid many of the mistakes that even afterward
It seems that this would be the year for every farmer to
buy about one-half as much fertilizer as In* lias been in the past.
If every man could own a little farm of his own in the south
the cotton problem would he easier to solve provided every
landowner would make that farm self-sustaining.
The mind has a lot to do as to lmw a fellow feels. If you
are a calamity howler and nothing goes to suit you, change
your way of thinking, look on the bright side and work the
harder to bring things right.
The preacher, the lawyer ,the doctor, the teacher, the farmer
and the politician all feel like they know how to run their par
ticular profession better than the other fellow and, hence, ad
vice from others goes in at one ear and out at the othei.
AN EXTRA SESSION.
The Times thought when tin* agitation for an extra ses
sion of tin* legislature began a low weeks ago that it would be
unwise, but developments since force us to change and we now
believe it would be of great and lasting good to our state were
the Governor to call an extra session.
There seems to be a state-wide demand for an extra session
to acton the highway situation in Georgia.
Gongress has appropriated #200,000,000 to be apportioned
among the states for highway construction purposes. Georgia
will receive for the fiscal year 1010, #2,152,000; for the fiscal
year 1020, #2,557,000; for the fiscal year 1021, #2,002,000 —a
total of *7,402,000. This amount must be supplemented by the
state, and there is no legislation more important to Georgia at
this time than that to make possible the lull benefits of this
enormous federal fund for road building. It is necessary, there
fore, to have an extra session if we are to receive this large
WHAT IS SUCCESS?
Different persons have different views as to what is success.
The prevalent idea with a large majority of mankind is the
accumulation of great wealth, and that no life has l*een a suc
cess which has failed to mate money and have large worldly
It is alright to make money in honest and legitimate ways
but the man whose sole purpose is to make money and forgets
all the obligations he owes to humanity is a miserble failure
and of little real worth to the world.
Someone has successfully outlined what is success in the
"He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often
and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men
and the love of little* children; who has filled his niche and ac
complished his task: who has left the world better tha ill lie
found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a
neseued soul; who has never lacked appreciation *>f earth's
beauty or failed to express it; who has always looked for tlu*
best in others and given the best he had; whose life was an in
spiration; whose memory a benediction.’’
I’ve seen some men who’d frankly own that they
\V< >'re lacking in the training requisite
To run a daily in the modern way—
Who’d own right up they'd make a botch of it.
I’ve seen some men who didn't fondly dream
They could improve their cars by tinkering.
I’ve seen a very few who didn't seem e
To think they could be at Gongress governing.
But never have 1 seen an urbanite,
Bred to the pave, dependent on the shops,
Who didn't think lie could boat out of sight
The oldest farmer man at raising crops.

“What silence we keep year after year
ith those who are most near to us and dear!
We live beside each other day by day,
We speak of myriad things, but seldom say
The full sweet word that lies just in our reach,
Beneath tin* commonplace of common speech.
Then out of sound and out of reach they go—
These close, familiar friends who love us so;
And sitting in the shadow they have left,
Alone with loneliness, and sore bereft,
W e think with vain regret of some kind word
l J hat once we might have said and they have heard.’’

No two sides to a shoe

sight of it.

everything that skill and ex
perience can suggest to
make certain that the

LETTER FROM GERMANY.
Janury 2(, 11)19.
Mr. It. L. Woodruff.
Received your letter about
grandma some time ago. 1 ap
preciated you writing very
much. I was very uneasy
about her for .awhile and a
yet. But I hear from home that
she is getting better. I sin
eeivly hope that she is getting
much better by now.
Well, 1 am up here in Ger
many with the arm yof occupa
tion. Guess that 1 will remain
here for some time yet. This is
certainly a beautiful place.
There is a church in Goblenz
built in S.'D. Golden/ is just
across the Rhine from here. The
river is filled with river steam
ers and tugs drawing long lines
of barges. There are a number
of U. S. patrol boats on the riv
The people here seem to take
the occupation with good heart
and ar not kicking at anything.
In fact I think that they are
glad that the* American milita
ry authorities are here to keep
down rioting as is going on in
Berlin. They seem to like
America all right. The text <
Wilson's last note to the Ger
man government before war
was declared was not made pub
lie until a short while before the
armistice was signed. They all
say that if it wore not for
America the war would have
been won by them. But they
are most all glad that the
Kaiser is overthrown.
Well I am hoping to be at
home soon for there is no place
like the U. S. A.
