Give the young and struggling a
word of encouragement when you
can. You would not leave those
plants in your window boxes with
out water nor refuse to open the
shutters that the sunlight may fall
upon them, but you would leave
some human flower to suffer from
want of appreciation or the sun
light of encouragement. There are
a few hardy souls that can strug
gle along on stony soil—shrubs
that can wait for the -dews and
sunbeams, vines that can climb
without kindly training—but only
a few. Utter the kind word when
you can see that it is deserved.
To one engaged in business it is
vital to know as much as possible
of the disposition and ability of
the customers to meet their obliga
tions, since the percentage of ‘‘des
perate” notes and ac-coui ts must
be reckoned at the stock taking
period at the end of the year if the
proprietor would know his actual
financial standing. There will al
ways exist the need for this cau
tion so long as human nature con
tinues to be—human nature. Our
, town is practically free from that
class of individuals known as the
prpfessional deadbeat, hence the
b' v -ie.bt collector finds this field an
of Chm. ,
awhlch to operate.
The North Georgian extends
sympathy to Mr. Osborne McGin
nis in the death of his daughter,
Miss Lizzie, which occurred Thurs
day of last week. Her remains
were interred at the Bethlehem
cemetery on lt seems that
the grim monster has laid his icy
hands upon the family of Mr. Mc-
Ginnis very heavily, he having
buried, within the past eight
months, three beautiful, brigbt and
promising young girls. Death is
always sad, but when the sickle is
put in motion and is not stayed
until it reaps an almoft complete
and final harvest in a single fami
ly, in such a short time, it is ren
dered doubly sad and heart rend
ing. May the Comforter of hearts
be pleased to dwell richly 'n the
home from which another daughter
has been taken.

If we would teach a child to like
that which is good in reading, we
must establish the liking in his
early years. It is not enough that
we shall tell him in later days that
certain books are good and bid him
read 'hem. When he is grown up
he will ci.oose that which he likes
and our work is to lead him to like
good things. We cannot begin too
early. The nursery tales should be
those which have fed the children
of many an age and chine The
song, the hymn, the poem should
be those that are worth reading
and reciting. Let us make the
beautiful story and myth and hymn
a part of the child’s early environ
ment. More than this, let us re
member that in teaching the chil
dren to read good books we are re
enforcing them against the ills of
life. Accompanied by noble
thoughts they shall go to their
drudgery and toil with a brave
spirit, and make melody in their
hearts even when their hands are
rough with toil, they shall dwell
with the great and good and their

Rev. W. F. Wofford, Dead-
Rev. W. F. Wofford, one of the
old citizens of our county, died
last Sunday night, the 10th of
June, at the home of his son, Lee
Wofford, with whom he had lived
for sometime. His age was 74
years, 6 months and 27 days.
He was buried at Concord ceme
tery Tuesday morning, with Ma
sonic honors, after funeral services
by Revs. D. .T. Burt and J. J, oan
Mr. Wofford had been afflicted
several years with rheumatism,
but his condition was rendered
Imore serious and hopeless, when a
bout the middle of last week, there
was added to his already painful
arid seemingly Jfatal disease, a se
vere attack of pneumonia fever,
which speedily brought the end.
Mr. Wofford was an honest and
true man. He has been verv prom
inently connected and identified
with the best interests of Forsyth
county for many years, having
served this county four years as
County Treasurer, but that which
was noblest, greatest and para
mount' in his life and death, was
the fact that he was a true, piou
and devoted Christian and died in
the full triumph of a living faith
in Jesus C hrist,
The North Georgian extends
sympathy to the bereaved ones.

Letter to A. Strickland,
Dear Sir : We suspect you’d like
the tale, how a woman beat two
hardware dealers in Girard, Pa.
We tried our best to get those
men to sell Devoe lead-and-zinc in
that bright town ; and failed. Re
luctantly took Mrs E R Bowman,
They said they couldn’t sell paint
for more than $1,25 a gallon. Mrs
Bowman can. She has sold about
all the paint, that has been sold
She knew Devoe; lias sold our
arlists’ materi ils. Had some sense
and force, besides ; she easily learn
ed that cheap is dear in paint, and
told the people.
Mr Bert Young bought a gallon
Devoe for rooms that had always
taken a gallon of other paint; had
Mr E II Hiler, jeweler, painted
Devoe, and says it goes further —
-Mr John Hanna, grocer, thought"
it expensive before he bought it;
brought back nearly half his paint,
and said it was the cheapest job he
Mrs, Bowman reports universal
satisfaction. So much for a cheap
paint town with a bright woman
