cordially invite the public to attend both the day and night service the parents can manifest it them- Wednesday Thursday and Friday The farmer wishing to use the lumber cut from his woodland haa only one way of seasoning or drying his timber air drying He usually is in no position to have it kiln dried which of course is the quickest way Wood possesses the property of giving off or taking on moisture from the surrounding air until the moisture in the wood has become balanced with that of the air Therefore air seasoning of lumber depends upon the temperature humidity and circulation of the surrounding air After sawing his logs into lumber the farmer wants to get as good a product as possible He should therefore pile it on a firm strong foundation situated on well-drained land removed from possible danger of floods and standing water All weeds and brush should be cut to allow good ventilation The foundation Bhould be built of durable material and sufficiently high so that the pile is about 18 inches above the ground at the rear The slope from front to rear should be about one inch for every foot of length In most regions lumber should be piled with narrow strips of sound dry wood between each layer of boards so that air may circulate freely through the pile Local climatic conditions determine very largely what is the best spacing of boards in the course In general very narrow spacing in creases staining and very wide spacing increases checking If weather conditions cause rapid drying narrow spacing may be de sirable However if weather conditions cause slow drying staining may be decreased and drying fpeeded up by increasing the spacing between the boards to 5 or 6 inches Increasing the spacing beyond 5 or 6 inches does not result in appreciable increase in the dry ing rate inMonroe visiting friends over- selves not righteous toward children Even natural childish foolishness Tiger Rock Ark defeated the Tallulah The regular annual meetim the stockholders of

CHILDREN Respecting the personalities of others is the basis of good manners Because we do not like to be made to feel small illbred ungenerous courteBy demands that we make others feel jolly and generous Courtesy pays nowhere as it does in dealing with children Far from the will of the the courteous parent wants the child to be to have his own thoughts to know his own mind to practice the use of his wilL So as our next points on etiquette for the parent we shal list the following: 18 A child is to be correctec courteously As the ancients said "A child correct behind and not In order to handle the tasks that confront him a pride his must be in healthy condition The appeal should be to his being a fine healthy youngster who is on the right track If he must be correctet it is better to try hard to be courteous to him in the presence of strangers and to correct him later That is hard doctrine I find it very hard to follow that doctrine As one feels stronger himself believe he will be the more able to save the and yet correct the child's misbehavior Common sense is on the side of courtesy as the old proverb shows a friend in secret conu mend him in 19 Do not keep a child from doing what he can As soon as the baby can help to hold the cup he fights for it It is an unfeeling parent who robs the child of the triumph of holding the bottle or the cup Little slip-ups are to be expected but when the infant desires to do small things for himself wisdom lies in letting him do them even though there be some milk spilt The road from birth to maturity begins with all but total dependence and leads to almost total independence and its early stages should not be denied or delayed So the parent should not help the child who needs no help nor refuse the help of the child however small who wants to help How wise were the ancients who boiled down their wisdom in this regard into the following proverb: service is little yet he is no little fool that despiseth it 20 Never keep a child from playing with his age-mates The difference between health and sickness in the mental life the difference between being sociable and being unsociable After all is said being sociable is merely being able to get along with people of own age The child who can get along with grown people but knows nothing about how to act with children is not sociable he is a social monstrosity Because it is sometimes inconvenient parents fail to provide age-mates for their children to play with Some parents think so highly of their own social qualities that they want their child to play with nobody else That might be all right if the child were to stay at home and live alone with the parents all the life In fact practicing being alone with the parents prepares the child for remaining with the parents it tends to unfit him (so far as outside children are kept from him) for being a sociable person Most foolish of all is the parent who would keep his child from associating with other children because of the fear that other children might contaminate him You may know such a super-pure parent who is trying to make his child lily-white He is rearing him to live in a world that simply does not exist and away from the only world that can give him any happiness Of course parents should be as careful as they can about the children with whom their child is to play but to find none with whom he can play is to forget all common sense The purest that ever lived could associate with publicans and sinners Those who think their ancestry all to the good should remember that we are all descended from common stock An old EngM proverb has it that that hath no fools knaves or beggars in the family was begot by a flash of Those who try to deny heir common lot are in a fair way be hit by a bolt of lightning and certainly will if they withhold their children from common contacts They will be shocked past all understanding if their children are not able to break away and ind the social feeling that their very parents should have helped them to find sam Over 3500 WPA Formen In La Given Training The Willing Workers Club of New Light Baptist Church wil meet Monday night at the home
