One Dollar Per Year in Advance I
Very Reasonable and made known on
Entered as second-class matter Feb
ruary 25th, 1910, at tne post office
at Aboakie, N. C., under the Act of
March 8. 1819.
It is not Riven to many to be
heroes, but everyone can be a use
ful citizens and that is always in
Between tbe great things we
ceiinot do and the small things we
will not do there is great danger
of our doing nothing.
By the common consent of all
moralists war is regarded as a sin
against humanity, and it is equally
true that the wages of sin is death.
If yon cannot see the great im
provements which have taken
place in our town within the past
two years you are blind. And
when we say improvements we do
not mean in any one particular,
either. There have been enor
mous improvements made In the
way of residence building and re
modelling, there have been im
provements in the way of added
business henres, and above all
there has been an improvement in
the moral tone of the place. It
has not been long sinoe it was a
common sight to see men disagree
ably drunk on the streets, while
now it is a very uncommon sight
to see any man under the influence
of liquor. And in every other
way the town lias greatly im
prayed. A general wave of pro
greseiveness and a feeling for
higher morals appears to have
taken hold of our people, and
here as elsewhere public senti
ment regulates public conduct.
When public sentiment demands
a higher moral life the result is
always a better place, and when
the public agrees that they live in
the very best section of. the coun~
try then improvement begins, and
this infection Spreads even to the
stranger that is within your gate.
We have the very best town and
is situated in the very best section
of the state and our own people
have awakened to the fact. There
is still a greater and better town
coming. A^e you aiding in the
forward movement t
The spirit of Christmas! What
is the spirit of Christmas! It is
the geoerous spirit, the spirit of
giving! Yes, but that is Dot all.
There will be millions ,of gifts
made between now and the new
year, and they will not all express
the Christmas spirit. Some will
be made out of pockets of plenty
and thus entail no personal service;
some will be made under compul
sion of supposed necessity. How
many people give things at this
time because thev think they must'
They must give to tnoee who, they
hope or fear, will give to them.
It is almost unfortunate that giv
ing and taking has become such a
feature of our Christmas celebra
4ion because the mere gift is in
capable of expressing the spirit of
this occasion, and the occasion it
self has become a burden to mauy
because it has been so much
abuse. It is not by giving lavish
ly that we honor Christ whose
birth we celebrate, but by sharing
unselfishly every good thing we
posses. This puts the best things
of Christmas within reach of
every human life and enables
every human being however poor
in goods to give generously of
whatever else he has. IJWs all
have much. Is money denied us.
then let.us give what is better, a
word to cheer, a smill to awaken
hope, something out of our hearts'
treasure. Who would not rather
get a cordial message from a
friend that would express his
thought and appreciation, than to
get a dollar trinket! What heresy
to think that we caDnot express
an unselfish love at Christmastime
except by lavish us of money.

has prfved Kataarh to be a oenstitu
