aid and comfort me in the trying'
There were several floral tributes

senders. It will not be possible for
me to thank these people personally

thanksat this time.
It is not going to be easy for me

We are prou'd of our Boy Scout troop,
the growth it has made during the past
year and the advancement the boys
have made in Scout lore. It is our privi
lege to assist the Scouts in a substantial
way by'subscribing generously to the
Blue Mountain Council fund when the
campaign opens Monday, April 17.
Lexington always does its share we
will not fall down on this important
C. C. Carmichael
WE are pleased with
the many friends we
Wive made housewives
who have exclaimed over
the nutritional qualities of
all our meals. Menus are
carefully . planned to give
you good, wholesome,' nu- .
tritious foods. Breakfasts
to give a mill or farm worker
"som4lhin to' work on."
Lunches arc always appe
tizing. Dinners are always
a treat for hungry families.
YOU'RE ALWAYS WEL
COME. Come in soon!
Self-reliance of the individual is the
thing that strengthens a democracy.
That's why the training given our youth
by the Boy Scout movement has a dis
tinct bearing upon the future of our
nation. If we back the youth in their
training now we will have less to worry
about in the future management of
governmental affairs. Let's be liberal
wfth our money when the campaign for
Boy Scout funds opens next Monday.
One Good Turn Deserves Another
A Boy Scout is taught that he should do at least one good deed each day. He
is taught to be thoughtful of others, his elders in particular. This is but one
phase of the training a Scout receives, yet that alone is worth far more than it
costs to give a boy the entire Scout program. We can do something toward this
splendid youth training program by giving of our means to the annual Blue
Mountain Scout Council fund. We can do no less than show our appreciation
for what the Scouts are accomplishing in training themselves for good citizens
