I took up at my place eight miles north of Farmerville on or about July 16, 1938, one roan mare weighing about eight hundred pounds, and looks to be about ten years of age. Owner can recover property by paying all costs, including this notice.

W. A. Agerton, Truxno, La.

Between 800 and 1,000 Jewish children whose parents have died during Hitler’s persecution are being sent out of Germany and taken into English and French homes. It is a fine thing for the English and French to do and in notable contrast to the barbarism of Hitler. There is no promise in Scared Writ for the man who robs and persecutes his brother, but some wonderful promises are made to those who receive a little child.

There are exceptions of course, but as a rule the reason why some people get along so much better than some others is that they work hard and save their money.
