"I think- tt is so nice to hear from so msny tU tt ence, and to read all the poem's u4 jokes. It sure makes time fly when jm (eel so blue. I noticed a poem about ls rears ' sgo by the name of "Ye kTM of the Weed," and if some of you Utims will send it to me it will be ap-frttiited. I will write you all one about pabling this time, but I don't know rut the next wil) b-, out I suppose it till better if the Local Editor will be u kind as to let me in the Cousins' ring tor short while. As.- tbld v saying, ' ikort vislta are appreciated more than sng ones." So being that I am a strsnr-f sad hsve no certain - awjact to -talk, sheet, I will ring off and write about . THE kUMBLER'S LIFE. A fisibler's life is like a rose, it tines he blooms, but his money soon .. goes; -ind when it's gone, he's scorned by many, B his no friends, not scarcely any. Bit show me the gambler, if you can, ss wouldn't nelp a widow of an anfortunate msn, E will (tire his last dollar, and then go . " borrow, -' lot like a rose, hie msy bloom tomorrow. And if he blooms, we will all hare a time. Drinking red whiskey and beer and wine, t why score the gambler! He'a so gen- etQOs and good. There's msny who'd be gamblers, if they only could. Bit tske my sdvice, and never play a card If I could lire this life pver 1 would slwsys work hard. rot a gambler's liie 1 would never choose, It's a life of misery, you win or lose, ind when he's dead and gone forever, Hk friends will ssy he was always clever. X'yin? words tell soft snd low, 14 bsck, young meu, wild seeds don't sow. bn't drift Into sin, no matter how small. For this is the ' prayer of an outcast, beyond recall. Money won't make everybody happy, rrienddiip bought with gold may neter last. And money won't ease thst old heart thst's breaking, Allkough it will buy whiskey, beer and Alitough it will buy whiskey, beer and - wine., ,.- . ; , s tn tne morning on your, bedside, you will die.

I have leeiv.ja,di the pood old-. V. B. for . a time,. and enjoy reading it so much. I love to read the Cousins' letters, and think some of tbem write. real interesting letters. : 8ome of them give good advice. Well, I hsd aimed to write on several different things, -s-ut since I havebegan to write aeema like all my aubjecta have left me but one,' and that ia a great subject. I am afraid I can't give it justice, that is the big subject of "Love." Love la one of the greateat subjects there is. Love is wonderful, and love haa a great power. Love will cause many pleasures in msny wsys, and again love causes msny a sad heart and many a sad and lonesome night to many a loving wife. She has worried all night long because her husband ia out somewhere she knows not where, probably drunk, gambling, playing cards or "in a -lot of other sinful things, snd his loving wife st home with the little children, wondering where he is, her heart acning, thinking every minute to hear of him being dead or hurt. So love ia an awful thing. 1 have experienced it myself. I have . (rone with several different boys, but I have never loved but one, and I believe I really loved him, although I never did net to be with him very much, as his Dullness called him away part of the time. He wasn't even In the states', but wherever be was, 1 loved him just the same, and always thought of him night and day. I alwaya prayed to Ood to keep and protect him while in foreign eiauswa " w a vo auv Mtm ij vici J uaj, ea IjBff,, aud t'heered me up -with his nattering tellers, ut course,! believed most everything he told me.

I didn't have sny I alike, and I'm migbty gau ttiey can't, for better sense than to believe what heaaidxif tuey-dH they'd all want my "Jane," and him.., engaged then to another girl. : end , you know, I could -never stand for Ho girls, you ee there is not any use to I that. Clara L. Smith, please allow me to. believe a word a boy tells you. T never compliment you on your letter. I think did believe anything one told me till this I you are a real sport, and more than tnat. one, and he some how glined all my love. ' you told the plain truth when you said snd I loved him so I couldn't help but you hsd been kissed, and. wasn't ashamed believe him, but he has proven false to to admit it. But Noah I. Bennett, I me now, and I know all he has said to heartily dissgree with you that "cars" me snd all he haa written was untrue. I .cause the downfall of the young girl. - For know I can never believe another word a really some went thst way before ears boy tells me. So dear girls, be on your i were invented. Am I not rig-tit, girls t watch, and don't put any confidence in The right kind of a girl will be what she what the boys tell you, for they will tell should be, car or no car. Boys, always yon all sorts of- lies to win your love, and treat the girls as you would want the then laugh and talk and have a sport- all other fellow to treat your, sister, and then shout you being a fool about them. But you won't blame cara for the conse-there is a day coming when they will nil quences.. Some of you may think I'm an have to (rive an account for the way they , altogether different fellow from what I have treated the poor innocent-girls here ; was before. But I'm not. I'm the same below. Boys, let me say a few words to j old six and seven, only in a different you all: Seema like being with the girls is most boya pride, and I think it is real ire to be together, sna enjoy, me, dui boya don't try. to nvxe r. fool out of r girl and tell her all kinds of lies and make her believe it 'all and then forsake, ber and leave her broken hearted, for we have all got to give an account for the deeds done on e.irtb, and let's all be what we are, and try to rove everybody, and try to live a Christian life. Let's try to meet on that bright shore. Remember me in your prayers, in my sad and lonesome 7S' A LONESOME COUSIN, Barrium Springs, N. C. From a Lonesome Girl. Loral Editor: I have jnst been reading the good old U. B, and certainly do love to read the Cousins psge. Jsckson Edwards, will you allow me to compliment you on your nice letter in Nov. 30th issue f I agree with you in your letter, for I don't like the idea of dnnkmpr, . cursing, gambling and dancing. Also go ing to shows so much., welt, i can i say much about H. & K.. for I never have had much experience in that line, so I will let them discuss the matter tnat naa more experience. Some are writing on short skirts i and bobbed hair. Well, I don't think 'too abort a skirt looks so well, especially on married ladies, and J really don't believe in bobbed hair for grown-up girla. I -don't believe if Ood hadn't aimed for women to wear long hair that He would have given it to them. I will aay this much, we all look at some tne else a nanus too mum sou ie r lip. If we would U try to keep the trash swept from onr own door steps all the time,- we wouldn't have ao much time to be seeing the. faults of our friends.. Somehow we csn see the mote thst la in our brother'a eye much better than we ean see the beam, that Is in our own eye. Let's all try to get the beam out of our own eyes, and then we can aee clearly to fet the mote out of our brother'a eye. There are so msny thst if they en do anything that will down anyone that is what they pride In doing. If you can't be a help to anyone for God take on't be burdensome. If I know my eart I really want to be a help to my ieighh:iri and friend, and if I cn t h lust let me be nothing, for if I can t help. I hope I will never hinder.

Very few papers would give over a page eacn week for the ' lettera - and articles from its young readers. They had rather use up that space with "clippings." which in most instances are never read.

He named it Powdr-psint. It comes in the form of a dry powder and all thst is required is cold water to make paint weather proof, sanitary and durable for outside or inside painting. It is the cement principle applied to paint. It adheres to any surface, wood, stone or brick, spreads and looks like oil paint and costs about one-fourth as much. Write to A. L.
