MOTHER
LOVE
By OLIVER PENDLETON
In all the world there Is no love
so pure, so unselfish, so constant ns
Mother's love. It is akin to divinity
itself—this love of mother for child
—love which passeth all hjmnn
understanding. Who but a mother
can know such devotion! And vho
can measure the influence the spirit
of motherhood has had upon a
world that would have been bleak
without it?
A motlier's love begins when her
child grows under her heart. JT.i
flowers into eternal affection when
she goes down into the rail y of
the shadow to give it life. It be
comes an inseparable bond when
the helpless infant feeds upon her
bosom. However sleepless the nights i
which follow may be for mother, her i
love keeps uncomplaining vigil. And
so the little one grows, happy end j
carefree, unaware of the bo indies'
love which lias been lavished upon
him.
The years come and go and the
children her the call of the world
All too soon, the little children, who i
have made tire home happy . for j
mother with their play and laugh-!
ter, grow into young men and wom
en, When they leave tire home,
mother remains with her memories
of the Infant, smiles, the tiny hand
clasps. the first faltering stepc, tire
joyful shouts and scuffles. If or love
endures, her faith never falters Re
gardless of how rough the going is;
in the world, mother’s loving arms
are always the kindly shelter they
were in those days of Infancy. j
The second Sunday in May hr'i >
been designated Mothers Day : for
public expression of our love and;
reverence for the mothers Of our
country. In 1914 our Congress fixed
this day in honor of mother j be
cause "the service rendered the
United States by the American
mother is the greatest source of the j
country's strength and inspiration.";
Mothers Day will be observed in
all the states. Special services will 1
be held in the churches. The beauty I
of Christian motherhood will be
sited in sermon and song.
The white carnation has b*er.
chosen as the floral emblem of
Mother love because of its sweet
ness, purity and endurance.
If mother is living it will make j
her heart happy again to receive a :
letter from son or daughter at aj
distance, recalling the happy days j
of childhood. The affairs of cur own |
lives may have caused forgetfulness
of the childhood days, to us, but
not to mother. For her they are a
part of her life.
Let us remember mother citeaer ,
in the year to come with tetfe., and
kindness and love. •Our trmirresi |
devotion can but repay in a small;
part the ineffable Jove and gentle-!
ness bestowed so umtintlngly upon
us by the most precious friend .erf;
all, mother.
If mother lias passed on. let us;
live so that mother, could die lincw, |.
would be proud cl her child In
whom she always had faith,

May 10th .
Just a little reminder to you folks
who live in Shelby. Of course, it
should not be necessary to leniicd
you at all, but for fear that some
one may permit business engage
ments and transactions to over
shadow everything else, tins little
hint is given just at this time: Sun
day, May 10 is Mothefvaay.
Now that covers a span of neari;
24 hours, but in reality folks, ever;
day Is mother’s day, no mnt'fr
whether it is set aside for c.neiv
ance or not. She is the one Jenson
in all of this world to whonTycuij

costly gifts on her. Perhaps you
may not be able to take her <v gift
£f anV kind that would call for an
1 outlay of cash money. You can iic
10 see her, ami surely you can ftud
a flower or two. She'll appreciu
