I ; r: W' g I: Sometimes we forg«f "the meek and lowly Jesus" could be something other than meek when occasion required Instance the cleansing of the temple He overturned the tables of the mon ey changers and with a whip drove out the temple traffickers. The mod ern church needs cleansing occasion ally. A preacher said to me, "The •uperintendent of our primary de partment, one Elder, two deacons and a trustee have resigned. We have the promise of more resigna tions by the first of the year. We choose to consider it a promise though doubtlesB meant as a threat Achan and those associated with him had to be disposecd of before Israel could go forward. Gideon and his faithful men could never have con qaered the hosts of Midian unless the fearful and unbelieving had been sent to the rear. Haaman was hanged on hit own gallows and Judas was a Suicide. The man who uses his reli- gion as a cloak eventually brings dis- aster to the cause with which he is associated and inevitably to himself. ...

Reeves REGISTERED OPTICIAN —AT— BURTIS DRUG STORE One Day Each Month THE POOR BOY MAKES GOOD Just about the time our faith in the old maxims seems about to be shat- tered, something happens to restore it. It's a bromide that the poor boy who works hard and studies well and is honest and industrious will succeed, but the bromide has a lot of truth in it. J. Ramsay McDonald, again prime minister of England, proves the truth of the old adages. No one, his boy- hood friends must have thought, had a porer chance to amount to any- thing. The home he was born in had only two rooms, and the roof was thatched. He got along well in school but when he was only 12 the object poverty of the family forced him out into the fields as a laborer. Then he got a job in a warehouse, and might have been destined for low wages and no more fun in life than a glass of beer in the nearest pub, but he had something within himself that would- n't be ...

Civilization and evo- lution combined have also changed many of their natural bodily func- tions. Yet, with incomprehensibly stubbornness they still retain organs and habits for which the need has long since disappeared. A man's appendix, for instance, is his souve- nir of some long forgotten physical function, while the folw's habit of molting is ...

In other words, this famous prelate believed that any influence exerted on a child during the tender formative years was much more important than any- thing which might come later. Much the same principle may be ap- plied to chicken raising without straining the logic too greatly. Natural brooding with hens is the easiest and simplest way when com- paratively few chick...
