"INK n my iy MAWAN IN/MAN U I.I 1 I I l'i444HH.444 Today, 1 planted a fantaii wiildw ahd as soon as it «• nyes will plant a Cfape>niyftie called the lilac of the South. Mere m the North we must treat them as we.do roses to help them withstand our severe winters. This is my third reference to the Crape-myrtle in this column and t want to say that Crape is the correct spelling for this bush, so please, Crape-myrtle. In the April, Cquntrylin* column I mentioned that everybody ought to plant something. A tree, a bush, or a flower. It adds to the richness of life, Watching it grow brings an interest in nature, in the sun and the rain. Today April 19 is Patriot's Day. it marks the anniversary of the Battle of Lexington and Concord (1775) which is commonly regarded as the beginning of the Revolutionary War. You will recall Emerson's lines: By the rude bridge that arched the flood, Their flag to April's breeze unfurled, Here once the embattled farmers stood And fired the shot heard round the world. The poem was first read at the dedication of a monument at Concord bridge. This was American spirit. This was loyalty with it's origin in the human heart, the center of self-respect and human dignity. There was no need to sign a pledge of loyalty, in time of danger men shouldered their rifles and when the danger was over they returned to their plows. Whether enough of us are worthy of our inheritance remains to be «een, but some are and for these there is wonder in being American. The late Justice Felix Frankfurter once said, "Democracy is always a beckoning goal, not a safe harbor. For Free- d,om. is an unremitting endeavor, never a final achievement. That is why no office in the land is more important than that of being a citizen." Daylight saving time will soon start. Of all riches there is no wealth like time, and time is the great democracy. King and commoner, capitalist and beggar, perrons of every degree have the same number of minutes to the hour, the same number of hours to the day, the same number of days to the week. Nor can we be deprived of the full use of it by any but ourselves. Every morning we are given this bag of gold to spend as we will. If you love life, then do not squander time. It's time to devise May baskets. When I was a little girl-we made tiny baskets of paper, filled them with candies or flowers and hung them at doors, ringing the bell and skipping away. I can still remember how our hearts beat fast with happiness at leaving the nice little surprise. Taxes are a subject that creeps into almost every discussion these days. Someone said not so long ago, "It's getting harder and harder to support the government in a manner to which it has become accustomed." We are living in a world of chancing standards but taxes have always been a concern. In 1758, Ben Franklin said, "Friends and neighbors, the taxes are indeed heavy, and if those laid on by government were the only ones we had to pay, we might more easily discharge them; but we have many others, ahd much more grevious to some of us. We are taxed twice as much by bur idleness, three times as much by our pride, and four times as much by our folly; and from these taxes the commissioners cannot ease or deliver us." This is as timely today as it was in 1758. There has never been an age that did not applaud the past and lament the present . . . "The illusion that times that were are better than times that are has probably pervaded all the ages," said Horace Greeley. Startlingly familiar words'are, "Alas, times are not what they used to be." And in one way or another people have been saying the same thing in all the centuries since r , None of us knows what is ahead. The important thing is to use today wisely and well, and face tomorrow eagerly and cheerfully and with the certainty that we will be equal to what it brings. "Finish everyday and be done with it.' You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered" with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays." Emerson. ' ',*"•*•'( The ever recurrinq evidence of history is that no time is as bad as it seems. This time, like all other times, is a very flood one, if we but know what to do with it. Emerson's inspiring words are as true today as they ever were. The frontiers are never closed; the limits of progress are never reached. The future will be what we ourselves make it. And let's remember that we are not alone in our endeavor. The good God who gave us all earth to love but Who ordained that our one spot be America, is : beside us. to lend a helping hand if we but ask for it. Since life is brief, we need to make it bright, and keep in mind, whatever comes, "This too shall pass away," . , , For pif • frM about M to 14 tfoyt of uo Hon tro i fow of U>t *oH4 rtijMt *W M mm IWt keg man art praising this rt mirkflll fff* pig lUrtfff • Disease protecti9n. e High payability • Balanced nutrition e Economical performance * Qfpwth power Prevention and treatment of bacterial enteritis, necro, bloody scours.
