Machine Shop News
A few days ago two of the boys,
on hearing of the arrival of great flocks
of ducks on the lake, decided to try
their hands at shooting. So they secured
guns, ammunition, and a boat, and went
out. The results were “two nice broad-
bills” and not knowing exactly what
they’ had killed, they threw them bacK
in the water, thinking they were not
real ducks, and good for nothmg. We
hope these boys will have their game
examined the next time they go duck
hunting.
Now that the “Flu” epidemic seems to
be checked and our men are all back on
the job once more, the shop is agam

It is not a hardship to be compelled to
work for a living. On the contrary,
work is man’s greatest blessing. Idle
men soon drift into bad habits, and as
a rule end their days in jail or an insane
asylum. Idleness promotes disease and
physical decay; work makes for good
health and vigor of both body and mind.
Private Saleeby and Private Claude
Wimberly, of Camp Gordon, Atlanta,
Ga., were in Badin recently, visiting
relatives and friends.
