legislators $2507,000,000, as year, of GREATEST BLESSINGS Editor, Post-Herald: There are a few God given blessings that man should see to that he is never far remove from during his whole life. The best of these are children, flowers, birds, frogs, some old folks, a or two and his mate. To take a wee child into a embrace and kiss its apple blossom cheek is perhaps the most exquisite exquisite pleasure. The song of birds is the spontanity of God's love at work in nature. The song of frogs at eventide is God's way of telling us, "All is well, go to sleep." Flowers are a constant reminder of the beauty and aromatic sweetness of our God. Old add wisdom and understanding to our intelligence as we linger round about them as objects of love, hope and God given reverence to life. A growing tree is a symbol of all that's good and noble in life. One's chosen mate is perhaps the greatest gift he will receive while allowed to enjoy the pleasures pleasures of this earth. Let us cherish these gifts and be happy. The thoughts of children are "long long thoughts." Last year my little five-year-old grandson, Stevie Eyre, was observing closely an old gentleman at work. This old fellow used tobacco and ever so often he would let a stream amber fly. After watching him sometime, Stevie came to me and said, "Pa, what is that flying of that old man's mouth?" I told him I didn't know, but that he should.look for it and learn what it was." He said, "I have looked, but I can't find anything." I told him that curiosity killed a cat immediately he wished" to know xvhat cat. It seem d that I just got in deeper and deeper all the time with him until night came and sleep gave both of us respite. E. W. James, Piney View, W.Va.
