Build the Bridge
Lexington's is one of the best
towns of its size in the state, and
with the new steel bridge connect-
ing her with Purcell, she will grow
as never before. Only a few thous-
and dollars of stock yet to be sold,
which will insure the erection of
the bridge this fall. If you haven't
subscribed hunt up the committee
and do your part. We need the
bridge and must have it.
Wall Paper! Wall Paper!

terns, nothing old. R. A. Isom.

highest market price for your corn.
Does "One Hour" Count?
One hour a day withdrawn from
frivolous pursuits ' and profitably
employed, would enable any man
of ordinary c !paeit\ to mash r a
complete sciene". One hour a day
would make an ignorant man a \v. 11
informed man in ten years, One
hour a day would earn enough to
pay for two daily and two weekly
papers, two leading magazines and
a dozen good books. In an hour a
day a boy or girl could read) twenty
pages thoughtfully—over seven
: em . ml i ,< ■ ••! • ■1 it< n
volumes iii a year. An hour a day
might make all the difference be-
tween bare existence and useful,
happy living. An hour a day
might maki—nay, has made an un-
known man a famous one, a useless
one a benefactor to his race. Con-
sider, then, the mighty possibilities
of two, four, yes, six hours a day
that are on the average, thrown
away by some of our young men
and women in their desire for fun
Much of the so-called friendship
of the day is but pretense. It ex'
ists only in name and as soon as it
ceases to lie advantageous it is
dropped. The friendship that con-
tinues the same in prosperity and
a Iversity is to be prized, but all
uthcr kinds are worthless. It mat-
not how hard a man may struggle
to do right and make a success of
life there is always some loathsome
reptile, some worthless wretch who
is ready to drag him down, to blight
his hope.- and Mast bis fondest am-
bitions. The loss of money and
property is not the greatest loss a
man can sustain in the business
world; far better to lose your mon-
ey than friendship.
