farJville ENTERPRISE Published by the Rouse Printery Entered in the Post Office at Fann ville, N. C., as second class mail Tnatter. FRIDAY, JULY 11, 1919 The high roller who is simply rolling: in wealth might find bet ter use for it. Marriage is a tie, but it isn't necessarily noose. Sometimes it is merely a slip knot. It costs nothing to give advice, but sometime it costs a lot to those who receive it. The mac who shows the white feather needn't expect the rest of the world to be color blind. Truly there is a tide in the rf fairs of men; but there is no gulf stream setting forever in one direction. ? Lowell. Farmville Boy Scout Movement To the Parents of Farmville by the Assistant Scout Master: I wish to make myself so^bold as to speak to those of you to day who htve boys in our troop of scouts as a child wouid to his parents, not as a father to his child. We have organized a troop of boy scouts in our little town as doubtless you know, and I wish to say parent it was not organ ized because we had nothing else to do, we did not start it that we might be known as holders of the required offices but, parents we dis it that our younger? may I say brother, might learn from the experience of the Scout Master ped I. Moie than that. We have a hand book prepared by authorities of the different branches with which it deals. Listen to this: Boy Scouts of America are loyal to the stars and stripes, they are faithful aad most of all, Christ taut. The boys of Farmville, mothers and father*, as is the case in every oihet place need training, so I urge you to no: be negli gent in your incouragin^ them to be active members. May I ask you one question. Had you rather see your boys with the qualities of a disting uished statesmen than first class loafers? I will have the pleasure of seeing by noticing the attend ance of your boys. The Boy Scout Movement was begun by excellent statesmen; therefore, it has the qualities of them. Very truly yours, ALFRED J. FLANAGAN ALONG THE WAY. I met a man tbe other day as I went down the way.
