Discontent Is one of the most
common of mortal failings. Com-
menting on It, the Bonham Herald
says: "Much depends on whether
you have made up your mind to be
satisfied with your job or not. There
Is always Just a little ahead that
seems to beckon to some folks and
they can never he satisfied with what
they have. They would be perfectly
justified in having ambition, and
waiting to let the natural course of
events follow, thereby getting pro-
motion In promotion's time. But
they cannot do this, sometimes.
They see others with $1800 salary
and they want to jut.ip from a $900
salary to that; and, falling, they do
the very thing they ought not to do
quit. Men who have been making
as much as $2000 have been known
to do this, simply because some
schoolmate is getting $4000. They
couldn't stand to see an old college
chum getting more than they, when
they knew he was more capable
than they. This Is the rankest, most
self-killing jealousy, but no one can
deny that It sometimes is the case.
Not many days ago we heard a man
of average intelligence, three chil-
dren and ability say that there was
nothing but a spare living in his
job, a place making him $1000 per
year easily. He grumbled muchly
about It, when a man who was
standing by, who was the proprietor
of a wife and six children remarked:
"1 get $00 a month: we live; we
owe no man. Better than all, my
wife Is a contented woman, my chil-
dren are happy, 1 am too and my
boss is going to raise my wages."

BUSINESS HOUSE AND S10CK
llrick Building of Price Bush nnd
Good* of Bryant & McGhee
a destructive Are occurred at Al-
len at f. o'clock this morning when
the new brick house of Price Bush
at that place was destroyed by rfle,
together with the large general mer-
chandise stock owned by Bryant &
McGhee, which occupied the build-
ing. The fire when discovered was
raging fiercely on the Interior of the
building and despite the best ef-
forts that could he exerted to sub-
due It, the building and stock were
practically destroyed. The building
which was 26x80 feet, was only
completed last August and was val-
ued at $:;.,tiu and was not insured.
The stock of merchandise was val-
ued at over $1000 and was Insured
!'or $3000. There is suspicion on the
part of the owners that the storo
was broken Into nnd robbed and then
ft on fire, the suspicion being baaed
:>n the fact that there wan no fire
anywhere about the building, and
that after the fire was discovered
those who sought to eater the build-
ing found that the rear door was un-
fastened. The sheriff's department
was 'phoned concerning the matter
and Deputy Sheriff George Kubanks
went to the scene to Investigate, as
did also Marshal Hutchinson of Pia-
no, who has recovered from his re-
cent wound, trul nothing of Import-
ance was learned tending to throw
light on the crime, if it was.

moth illustrated edition of the Spar-
tanburg (S. C. > Industrial Journal,
printed on book paper and with at-
tratlve covers. It splendidly acts
forth the rapid growth and develop-

This "poem" is from an unknown
bard, but the Ottawa Herald vouches
for Its excellence: "The rose thai

brightest of the evenings has the
gloomiest of the dawns. The man
buys the biggest yards must cut the

biggest haa the fattest worm of all.

aure to have a fall. The soup that

the flies. The fellow who would sell
the goods must pay to advertise.

we alWRys hanker for are the last of
all we get. The simplest way Is al-
, ways best and yet we pass It by, to
dabble with the tlhteled things that
fool and catch the eye.
