Subscription Price: One Dollar Per Year in Advance. | Advertising Rates: Very Reaiwnabtr and made-, fcnown o?^ request. Entered as second-class nutter Feb ruary 25th, 1910, at tne post offle< at Ahoskie, N. C., under the Act of March 3. 1879. Other people's ideals are help ful to them, but if you want to be helped you must set up your own - ideals. ' The only true way to make sure of the future life is to make the best of this life, and that is done by doing all the food possible. j. It is a mistake to seek to do only the easy things of life. No de velopment of character can come that way. It is as hard tilings are attempted and overcome that more strength, fortitude and widened experience are attained. Someone has recently said thai ''fullness of mental power is nol reached until one has reached the age of twett.v-five. It is expected that all the coming high school and college graduates throughout the country will protest that re flection upon them. There are a few people that as sert most loudly that the biblQ i* an outgrown bcok and that its moral teaching is very imperfect. All the same, people generally will .do well to fashion their lives after the teaching of the Ten Command ments and the Sermon on thr Mount. February is a conspicuous month hi American life, for it marks tlx birthdays of two of tbe greatest men thie country has ever pro duced?Washington and Lincoln. But to tbe lovesick swain who wants to send his best girl the Saint Valentine, whojs supposed to contrqf the hearts and destinies of young people, far outweigh in importance the'two great Ameri can presidents. And what subtile ingenuity and resourcefulness are expressed in the valentines that on February 14 Gill tne postman with dismay by their multitude unless he re members his own youthful days and retain in his heart a tender feeling for sentimental young men and maidens. What touching emblems and poetry appear on the valentine es pecially on those wonderful crea tions of art the buying of which make a deep hole in the young man's pocket. Blood red hearts, saucey-faced cupids, dressed in nature's garb in freezing weathei and armed with bow and arrow to pierce the susceptible, hearts, hands joined iu loving grasp, which no divorce court can ever unloose, amorous verse full of tender adjectives and nouns and exclamations, young couples walk ing hand Mod hand together along a narrow winding path to a pictur esque little church perched on a . hill top?these are among the won derful designs that the fertile miud of sympathizing man has created! And after all, why not? This old world would be cold and gloomy without sentiment and romance, and what better time in life is there for it but that of youth, "when man's fancy lightly turns to tboiights of love." There fore let the valentine have the ' right of way and long may Saint Valentine exercise his benignant rula.
