We took another trip this week. L
wus a very short trip, tun il cer-
luuily wu." a pleasant on*1, ami, like
last week, if you have not been there
yourself, I r worn mend this trip .o
you, for you will eertainly enjoy it.
'Way out there at the extreme north
end of town in a neat little brown
cottage she was sitting in a rockei,
looking stiaight out m future.
I had th' opportunity ol seeing hei
first and had just a moment to study
her face In fore she looked up at mi.
There was something in the stead-
fastness of h i facial expression that
charmed me; I could -ee definite
expre.-sion.- of a satisfaction secured
l>y a Christian fortitude that had
withstood the changing emotions o!
.1 ! >ng Iruitful life. I could see 'a"
g;./.mg into the golden sunset of a
beau'iful day, a day well pent in
'happy reflections and holy meditu
ti >ns. I fancied I could -ee her re-
calling the clay's fa: , far back in th •
history of ISastcop. Shi* was the
youiik graceful belle of a rich plan-
'tat ion, >ui*roumied by an enviror.-
o. ■ i:t of the truly traditional old Siu-
tla.i home. She met her friend villi
a grace and charm characteristic o
the time. She was loved, honored
and obeyed by a chivalry then ram
pant in this her native land. I fan
tied I saw her reflecting upon the
fleeting years from childhood througl
a i>e • ence, maturity, betrothal and
motherhood, I fancied 1 saw her re-
flecting with pride upon those
years of sacrificing and devotion di
vided between the (i"d she worship-
ped and the blessings He had be
-towed upon her. She was thinking
of [hose little pattering feet that she
hud watched and guarded with .i
Mnceiity only born in a mother'-
love. She saw little feet carry stal-
wart bodies from the cradle to ma-
turely; she saw anotiiei generation
of her own blood come end grow to
man anil womanhood. Then she look-
ed up just a bit surprised to see me
approach. It was with some difficulty
that she arose, but even with tif-
fenttil joints and relaxed muscles
the re was a graceful gesture that
was a- natural as the life itself w'ith
W hen she recognized me there was
a change of her facial expression
that made a metamorphie picture.
';!i ii was friendliness, affection, -• n~
lehty, faith, humor and the line- nf
sorrow all well stamped on that love
ly visage. We talked for a long time,
and her voice was as clear a- lie' ex -
pre ion. With the e\ eption of Ileai

bright and -pinking a- a person

Warning to Voters
I do not know that it is going t >
be done in this campaign but it has
happened in others. That is, disre.
gard political propaganda that come-
out in the shape of circulars during
the last two or three days before
election. This progaganda coming ,i;
such a late time is untruthful and i-
* he* final attempt of scared politician,-
to gain votes before they are defeated.
If they bail anything worth saying
vou can ie«t assured that they wniili
be talking it now.
