The habit of happiness can be
Begin each morning by resolv

day. It may be in the sunrise,

Learn to look in each experi-

pleasure. You will be surprised
to find how many things that you
thought commonplace and rather

No matter how disagreeable a

you are getting it out of the way.
If the duty must be repeated
continually you can get some

essential to happiness or success.

public for a subscription of $1,-

view of broadening the scope of

not only as an expression of their
admiration of the life and char

is the caption of an editorial in
the last issue of The World's Work
relative to the new industrial life
of the South. "It . answers., that
some of the finer thines in the
life of the Old South must give
way and are giving way before
tha onward march of industrial
progress. That is one danger that
generally appears in the wake of
commercial progress. Such pro
gress, in its very nature, necessi
tates the leaving behind of some
things that were held dear under
the old regime. It is to be hoped
the new life will not seriously im
pair the reputation for courtesy
and hospitality the South has
throughout the world. This is
ne thing that should be retained
no matter how wealthy this sec
tion may become and we believe
it will be retained. The average
visitor to the South is impressed
by the courtesy and kindly hospi
tality of the people, in some other
sections this courtesy aud hospi
tality do not exist in near the
proportion that they exjst here.
The difference is one of those
things that have always been
creditable to the South. Winston

J. D.arnhardt, of Richfield,
J R. Moss, of Pennington, have
ads. elsewhere in this issue which
speak for themselves. Each has
given his note to certain washing
machine agents who have been
working this county, and they
came to Albemarle the early part
of the week to take preliminary
steps towards stopping negotia
tion of their notes. Each says he
will contest the matter before he
will take up the notes. Mr. Earn-.
hardt and wife gave their note for
$300. One of the agents, they al
leged, offered to release the note
for $175. Mr. Moss gave two
notes for $250 each. He says the
proposition was made by which
he would be released upon pay
ment of $200 upon the whole.
Both men allege that they have
not been treated right and that
tbey have not received the quid
pio quo. There are several others
iu the county, we are told, who
have mortgaged their all in nav-
ment for washing machine rights
at $500 each, who are very sore
over the deal.
