FUB LI SHED IN THE INTEREST OF RELIGION , ED UCA TION, LITER A1 URE AND GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. VOL. XVI. Additional Locals 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. , - t#... 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. Card of Thanks. To the good people of this com munity : I desire to return sincere thanks of tnyself and family, to gether with the rest of the children, for the many acts of kindness and words of cheer during the sickness and death of our mother, Mrs. R, J.

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 mornen's of lei-ure shall be rich because of these good times of their youth.—Sel The weekly country paper has as definite excuse for being in the world as can be furnished by the city dailies, Such a publication is not only a business guide, but is a ....1.,,*- mjL ]t is a kind of a public rostrum where the affairs of the state are considered ; it is a su pervisor of streets and roads; it is a social friend, a promoter of friennsbip and good will. Edited by a broad and just man, such a publication so treats (he different sects that they realize theirjbrot'n— erhood and become in reality what they are pictured in print. The town weekly dare not be Presbyte rian, or Methodist, or Baptist, but it must select the valuable in each church, and thus it becomes the harmonizer of discord. < It binds those whom theology would often separate. Even the so-called small matters of a village or incorporate town are small only to those whose hearts are too full of personal in terest. It is very important if some school bey reads a good essay, or speaks well a piece, or sings well a song, or stands high in the class room, that kind of mention should be made publicly of such success, for mere young minds are injured by the want of cheering words than are made vain bv an excess of such praise.—Ex. The disgusting discharge from the nose and throat, and the foul catarrhal breath, are quickly dis pensed with bv using Dr Shoop,s Catarrh Cure. Such soothing an tiseptic agents as Oil Eucalytus, Thymol. Wild Indigo, etc., have been incorporated into a snow white cream making a catarrhal balm un excelled. Sold by all dealers.

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 nister. 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.

Postmaster Puett has received a letter from the post,office depart ment stating tiiat on and after July 1, 1006, patrons of the rural free delivery service will be required to display signals on their boxes when they leave mail in them for car riers feo collect, as, after that date, carriers when serving their routes, will not be required to open and examine any mail boxes than those bn which signals are displayed to indicate that there is mail to col lect. The requirements are that all rural boxes shall be provided with proper signals attached to the boxes, which when displayed shall show the passing carriers that there is mail to be collected. It is not necessary that this device shall be complicated or costly, for a very simple arrangement will answer the purpose. Rural route carriers have been "instructed not to lower the signals on the boxes after collec tions, provided tnere is no mail left therein, but must display the signals when they leave mail for patrons, unless the patrons have made a request to the contrary. Carriers have been instructed to promptly inform patrons of their routes with regard to order.

L. PATTERSON, S. H. ALLEN, Chairman, Secretary. Letter to A. Strickland, Cumuling, Go. 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, druggist. 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 there since 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 half left. Mr E II Hiler, jeweler, painted Devoe, and says it goes further — no particulars. -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 ever had. Mrs, Bowman reports universal satisfaction. So much for a cheap paint town with a bright woman in it. Yours truly, F W Devoe & Cos 34 NTWS P, S, —Buford Hardware 00 - 4 -Ir* our paint.
