A motto applicable to the lives of some people seem to be,
"Any Old Thing Goes ” so that it accomplishes the purpose,
or seems to, for which it was intended. How often this policy
works positive injury to those who live by it, it is not my pur
pose to illustrate, in fact, I don't know. But what I do know
is that the "O, That’s Good Enough” practice in buying gro
ceries doesn’t pay from any point of view. The sallow com
plexions and unnourished appearance of numerous families
testify without a doubt that the providers for these people are
addicted to this custom. Perhaps the very best advice that can
be offered them is to buy their edibles here, then if they don't
care to be bothered about selecting they are assured of having
a fresh, clean diet, anyway for there is nothing in my stock
that will cook up otherwise.
The very best at small margins of profit is the kind I am
building my reputation on, in preference to the other kind
with pretty much all profit.
I believe that this is the kind you want, and if you are
not already uisng then, you will ultimately.’ I am here to
serve you when you have made up your mind.

The Wrong Way Out.
“1 have tried and have faded;—this
ii tho best way oat,” declared a Clove
land, business man the other day as he
prepared to take his life.
Business and domestic troubles—the
old story of weakness and lack of char
acter which makes death look inviting.
This man was glad to leave his troubles
behind him and depart voluntarily for
the unknown. The story of a suicide
is usually the same. When all the
blandishments of life are gone the cow
ard sneak., to death. The brave man
lives on. More than one mental and
moral coward, face to face with finan
cial ruin, has shown the white feuther.
He has slipped away from it all, leav
ing wife, mother and family to grieve
over his cowardice and lack of confi
dence, and to face the world dependent
upon this same world’s generosity.
The man who is too cowardly to face
trouble and p.rmit his wife and chil
dren to share it with him, and who pre
fers the easiest way out, leaving his
loved ones dependent, without re
sources arid without the means of liv
ing. is ahuut tiie meanest man who can
The great Napoleon had a fine con
tempt for a moral coward. He had a
greater con'empt for suicide. “Suicide
is a crime,” he declared, “and most re
vet mg te the feelings; nor does any
reason suggest itself to our under-
• 'aidri i. • which it can be justified,
i r 1 . •. > criginaieB in that species of
i.«; wiico w. denominate poltroonery;
for what claim can that man have to
courage who trembles at the frownB of
fortune? True heroism consists of be
ing superior to the ills of life, in what
ever shape they may challenge him to
These are words of wisdom. Every
man who is a man has a contempt for
the quitter. To die in order to avoid
anything that is evil or disagreeable is
not in keeping with what should be the
actions of a brave man. It bears all
the ear-marks of the coward. It is
only the coward who shunH the trials
and crosses of life. The business man
of Cleveland who was too cowardly to
face his financial reverses, and who
thought that suicide was the best way
out of it, was all wrong. He selected
the worst way out. Suicide is always a
confession of failure. Tho person in
trouble, whether brought on by his own
folly or through the fault of others,
should he honorable enough and brave
enough to face the consequences like a
An Asset or a Liability?
Shall the cotton crop of 1915 bo an
asset or a liabilitv? This depends on
the acreage of 1915. Says the Cotton
and Cotton Oil News:
“History is inclined to repeat itself,
and agricultural history in the past is
that a rising market about cotton
planting time almost invariably en
courages the Southern furmer to in
crease hi* cotton acreage, with the re
sult of decreasing the price ho re
ceives for his cotton in the fall. Nei
ther history nor experience has yet been
able to impress him with the folly of
“Another big crop in 1915 on the
heels of the mammoth production of
1914 will be akin to a national disaster.
It will so cheapen the South's great
staple that tens of thousands of our
farmers will not be able to meet the
obligations they will have to assume in
order to grow the stuff. They will em
barrass the merchants and bankers
who have extended them assistance and
credit, and every industry in the land
will feel the < ffect of the unwisdom of
making a liability of a crop that should
legitimately be a leading asset.
“Fa. iers, do not commit such folly!”
A man’s favorite way of saying noth
ing is to write a long letter to a friend.
The Result of Gossip.
In a Missouri village, noted for its
religious zeal, a widow reputed to be
worth $150,000 committed suicide a
few days ago. She left a note saying:
“My neighbors have talked about me.
I am unhappy, and I don’t wish to live
longer. ‘A good name is to be chosen
above great riches.’ I havo always
tried to live an honorable life, but my
neighbors have blasted my good name.”
A coroner's investigation developed
the fact that the widow had been tho
subject of an undercurrent of uncom
plimentary gossip, but nowhere did
there appear any tangible record of
wrongdoing on her part. Crystalized
into actual fact, it appears that the
dead woman's worst crime consisted in
receiving letters at the village post-
office twice a week, and these letters
were always addressed in the same
handwriting, and this handwriting was
evidently that of a man. Additional to
this she was known to have made
periodical trips away from the village,
visiting in a nearby city a week or two
at a time.
These incidents formed the basis of
It subsequently developed that the
letters received by the widow wore
from a respectable business man whom
she was engaged to marry, and her
visits to the city simply meant that she
had gone to see a sister of her deceased
Nothing so very wrong about either
of these things, is there? Yet the gos-
sipers gossiped, and the sensitive wo
man brooded over this gossip until her
mind and heart came to the breaking
Then she ended it all with a dose of
When theBe gossiping neighbors
looked upon the pallid, upturned face
of the corpse, some of them exclaimed:
“Oh, what a pity!”
Others wondered why one ao amply
blessed in a financial way should fail to
find worldly happiness. Still ethers
merely remarked, “How natural she
looks,” and passed nonchalantly on
But they all attended the funeral and
listened intently while the village par
son exclaimed in a tearful sermon that
“in the midst of life we are in death.”
It iB not of record, however, that the
pastor cited his hearerH to that wisdom
found in Proverbs, 18:8, as follows:
“The words of a talebearer are aB
wounds,” or that found in Matthew,
12:36, which says: “But I say unto
you that every idle word men shall
speak, they shall give account thereof
in the day of judgment.”
In that day of judgment, in whose
place would you prefer to stand—in
that of the woman, or that of the gos-
sipers who, by their malicious tongues,
hounded her to death?

Newnan, says: Doan’s Kidney Pills
have done me more good than all the
other remedies I havo ever used. For
years my kidneys had troubled me.
My hack ached constantly and I could
get no rest day or night. 1 was so
sore and lame that I could not bend to
put on rny shoes. I had headaches and
almost fainted from dizziness. The
kidney secretions passed too frequently
and annoyed me terribly. I had been
in bed about a week when a friend ad
vised me to use Doan’s Kidney Pills.
The first box put me on my feet. I
used two boxes, procured from J. F.

all signs of kidney trouble.”
