A good newspaper is a town's
Mtt valuable auet, but no one man
can mate a gre^t newspaper. The
■unity mutt htlp. It taket
money and lott of it to run a good
ntwspaper and it it only the uom-
munity that liberally patronizes a
paper in all its departments that can
hope for a good paper with a pull-
ing a power.
One of the most inconsistent in-
dividuals we ever met is the man
who growls at 'axes, and yet insists
that the public school must be kept
up to a high standard of efficiency ;
who, individually has no use for
churches, yet desires bit children to
attend Sunday School; who wel-
comes saloons and their companion
institutions, yet is anxious for his
boy to become a respected citizen.
Paradoxical though it sounds, there
are men of just that type—we all
will hat ha aa anflaMHag cf the beau-
ty of oharacter
will briag to
she wrought in their Uvet while here.
On the other hand, Prank Jama,
a character wboet life tatted of
nearly every crisae aad teemed to
revel ia dtedt evil, paid the debt of
nature aad patted out from tht
thortt of tbit lift to another beyond.
After yeara of crime of the
diabolical kind, remorse seemed to
overwhelm his soul and he professed
faith in a Savior whoae blood waa
■ shed to cleanse the vil. at sinner of
ail bis spots. None doubts the ef-
ficiency of the Savior's power to re-
make the character of even this man
and aave him.
But how shall htaven appeal to
tbeee two mott diverse characters?
The eyet of Fanny Crotby will open
to behold and enjoy in full meature
the tbinge she loved here and heav-
en will be but a continuation of life
here on a larger and fuller scale.
Frank Jamea will find himaelf
amidat the things that his life tried
to destroy. How will they affect
him? Will bis soul, although
cleansed and renewed, respond to
all the beauty of both form and sub-
stance as does the soul of the sweet-
er life who expressed her soul's
beauty in melody of song ?
We don't believe it.
The supreme lesson of these two
lives is that getting to heaven is not
all. A life spent here in prepara-
tion for celestiaHife will be prepar-
ed to enjoy more than one spent in I call 76
defiance of God'a law, though at'
la? t bringing the dregs of life to the
altar. No sower of wild oats can
ever return and be the aame as tho'
a more worthy crop of ideals and
endeavor bad been sown.
HEREFORD RECEIVES AT-
As an evidence that the Hereford
Brand has a far reaching influence
in advertising this section, i.ttention
it called to the fact that the Fort
Worth Record of last Monday gave
nearly a column of space to a repro-
duction of the Brand's write up of
the first Farmers Chort Course ever
held here under the direction of the
Prot. Ben,Short of Hereford, who
attended these sessions and prepar-
ed this article for the Brand, de-
aervet special mention in this con-
nection as the article not ouly con-
tained much valuable information,
but was well prepared.
WILL TBBY EH JOY BEAVER?
Last week two noted characters,
both of whom have been in the pub-
lic eye for more than half a century,
patttd from earth to the great be-
yond. Both died confessing faith
in the Savior of men. Both believed
ia life beyond the "swelling tide"
where joy shall be the soul's natu-
ral state. The livee of tbtit two
wert in tuct marked contrast, both
in thtir idealt [and their influence,
that it it impostiblt to think of thtm
as tajoying tht same things in that
etlMtial land unltst their idtntity
Is lott, and if identity it lott, then
Wt are not the tame but another.

There are many over-worked, tirsd-
out careworn, nervous women in tbit
vicinity who need the strengthening,
tissue building, and vitalising effects of ;
Vinol, our delicious cod liver and iron
tonic, and so sure are we that it will
build them up and make them strong
that we offer to return their money
if it fails to benefit.
Vinol is a delicious preparation of the
extract of cod liver oil add peptonate of ,
iron and contains no oil.
