:.3"íí Some Plain Talk. The following article from the ; pen of the editor of the Coman- < che chief is pretty plain talk, j but it is very true, and it ought to be helpful and healthful read- j ing for a lot of mothers who per-; mit their daughters to so! dress as to make a show of their ¡ physical charms to all eyes that j may be met. Not only do young| women, who perhaps may he! partially ignorant of the effect, of such displays, but many older! women, who know quite well what they will be, follow the dictates of fashion and clothe j their bodies in garments thin as; gossamer large enough for j butter-flies to go through. "It is all very well for a woman i to deplore certain low standards j that prevail today among young' men.

A Call to the Unconverted of Our County. There are many young men and maidens and older persons of our country who are not re- ligious. Sin is a fact. It is one of the most stubborn facts in the history of the race. It has been a destructive force in human life in all ages and among all peoples. Its fruits are the same, everywhere and everywhen. It always blights and destroys. It is a certainty—a strategic cer- tainty that man must be saved from sin or it will eventually de- stroy him, soul and body, in hell. There is absolutely no possible chance to escape the final doom of the finally impenitent and un- godly, except through the one way by which the Lord hath provided. Salvation is also a fact. There is nothing in this world more certain than that Jesus Christ has power on earth to save from sin. He is the only Savior and only refuge and safe- retaeat from the power of Satan. To fall into his hands, to be under his direction and control, that he may fix our destiny, or fall into t...

Monterey, Mexico, Aug". 28.— Eight hundred persons drowned. 15,000 homeless, and property damage to the extent of $12,000, 000, is the result of a flood which struck this city between 1 and 2 o'clock this morning. For seventy-two hours it has rained in this section of the coun- try and the Santa Catarina river rose gradually all day Friday, the crest of the flood reached here early this morning. It was first thought that there would be no lives lost in the flood, but the water rose to a height never be- fore reached in the history of the city.
