The mu. ical program given bj

as to rendition and point of ui-
tendence. The director Judgt
L. V/- Dongres is much pleasec

There is danger jui.t a little
ways ahead for Yukon, if the
machinations of the editor of tm
Piedmont News are to be taken
seriously. The burden of the
Gomplaint is that Piedmont is
shy on rural routes and that
route No. 2 from Yukon, which
invades the Piedmont territory,
is an «ye-sore to the good citi-
zens of the town to the north oi
us. Now, while the Sun ano
the citizens of Yukon have the
friendliest feelings toward Pied-
mont, the interests of the farm-
ers who receive their mail from
the above route, should be sale-

A Kansas editor prints a
"pretty piece" telling "How to
Get to Jayville." The directions
for reaching Jayville are also
quite simple. Following the bad
roads on the wrong side, and
keep turning to the left until
you reach a dilapidated settle-

tirely free of bonded debt," and

When you pull down the town
ti which is yojr home, your
business, you are culling down
vourself, and when you build up
vour own town, you ibuild up
yourself and your neighbor.
Try and banish from your mind
the mistaken idea that good
things are away oft' in some
other locality. Give your town
all tne praise it can legitimatelv
bear. It will certainly do you
no harm, and will cost you
nothing, and above all, patronize
. e institutions. Be a booster.

A Handful of Cash
(Hi/ ,Y< I tit J)rn .)
Keeu a handful of cash and your days will glid. on.
And sparkling with joy each tomorrow will dawn.
And give promise of peace and bright hopes thai enchant,
And repose undisturbed by the waitings of want.
Just a handful of cash and a heart full of cheer
The dark scenes of life and make glooin disappear;
• here is nothing more potent life's ill's to destroy.
Than a handful of eash and a heartful of joy.
When your efforts all fail, and you're all out of sorts.
Then whine not.
Nor seek for relief at the pleasure resorts;
[tut just whistle and sing, and ecstatic you'll be,
With a handful of cash and a hearttul of glee.
When temptations assail >ou and worry and vex.
Just scout them,
And route them
And force them to fly, and forbear to perplex.
You can vanquish all cares, or their carking remit,
With a handful of cash and a hearlful of grit.
When you meet with a man who does naught but complain,
Don't mind him;
You'll find him
Repulsive and selfish, uncultured and vain;
His (1 portment is rude, its effe. ts you Ml 1'iioy
With a handful of cash nnd a heart full of joy.
If the thoughtless, with rudeness, your feelings assault,
Don't mind it.
You'll find it,
Assuaging and noble to pardon l' tault,
You can dull its sharp sting and .is venom decrease,
vVlth a handful! of casn and a heart full of pi-ace.
Now the way u> be -happy pleas t. ant and plain.
Then take it:
And make it,
Your aim and your purpose us ,-o.d to att nil.
To do right is the way; supplemental to r.>i,s,
Get a handful of cash an.I a .u-art fu i of niss.
Though misfortunes m .7 come and l'. x'r. lj iniy depart'
Then fear not,
But tell them to j;o, and rejoice when t! -y ,art;
You c..n spare them with | rofit, . nd fill uj) their place,
With a handful of cash and a heart full ol grace
He forbearing and patient, be helpful and kind,
Loud plaudits to gain or vast riches to find;
But to help you live right, aH vexations above,
Keep a handful of cash and a heart full of love.
