I once heard one of my drivers
oxpresa wish that he would like
to tako his horses along with
him if he wore to 'ro west.
The same shell killed the driver
and both horses, and as I am a
Montana man, and know how a
real man comes to lovo a real
harae, I had him buried with a
horse upon oach side of him, and
they now lie Bleeping up in the

My soul is troubled soro from
day to day.
I've never had the chanco to
know Thee, Lord
Nobody ever taught mo how
So if my prayer is notua it should
Is not as padro prays on church
Please pardon me; forgive what
For at Thy feet my naked soul

How many young people today allow their thoughts to
carry tliem back into the days of their parents, or their
grandparents?' In those old days, homespun was common,
most of our sturdy ancestors were clothed in apparel made in
the homes. And frequently cobbler's outfits made a good
deal of lioniC'Slioe-making common. No conveniences like
the telephone or the automobile existed then. Today, at
every turn in our lives, wc find devices and methods and
systems and applications and modern structures, all. serving
to make our lives easier to live, and more capable of enrich
ing us in our short span on earth. Now when the old folks
get reminiscent and tell of "the good old days," and how
cheap things were then, consider whether or not they didn't
pay in some way or other than with money. It costs lots to
live today, but it's worth it. Now, today, this is a wonder
ful time to live. Let's get the most we can out of our time
by being appreciative and optimistic,
