8 And u very great multitude spread
their garments In the way; others cut
down brunches from thc trees, und|
strewed them lu tho way.
0 And the multitudes that went bc-|

ing, Hosanna to the son of David:
Blessed is he that cometh in thc name
of thc Lord; i lorinna in the highest.

TIIK AWAKENING WOULD
lt ought to be unite impossible for
any observing person to go out into
I Hbo world these spring days without
bel?g very profoundly moved by tho
miracle of the awakening earth. In
these latitudes the process ls so per
fectly dellned ?hut Its lessop becomes
' all the clearer. In tho tropics, where
there is no perceptible; linc of demar
cation between ope season and thc
next, the mind grows dull to tho great
roallty of it all. But here, where thu
winter, rules deep lines of snow and
feo. i to murk oft' the processes of na
Iture, lt is easy for mun to see thc be
ginning and tho wonderful unfolding
of -tho miracles of the earth.
"or it ls a miracle. Familiarity
with It through countless generations
has only sharpened man's appr?cia
tif of its wonders.. That the earth
should retain, against all the forces
of thc cold, tho germs of life In so
many different forms; abat lt should
causo them to come forth at exactly
tho right time and in just thc right
way to produce leaf and flower and
i fruit, ls a constant miracle. It is easy
to chart the process and to say chat
they aro tho result of the forces of
Nature. It is even easy to catalogue
tit se forces of nature and say that
ouch one will produce such and such
a result when exerted in BUCII a way.
That ia what science does. It enables
man :o take advantage of these forces
for his Own good, through thc knowl
edge of their operation which ho hus
galnod. But nono of this has anything
to say about tho. real heart, or thc
matter, tho power that mukes the
forces operate that originated them,
und keeps them constantly through
tho centuries. The whole life of the
earth ls predicated upon the fact that
the?v for?as wiii bo constant. Tho
earth sleeps serenely through the win
ter, because lt belioves tho fact that'
the forces of nature, unseen and
mighty, will surely opcrato to bring
tho. spring. If they should fall, lt
would mean starvation and dea?i.
So Hie Christian man goes through
tho smiling world of spring with a
song of thanksgiving in hts heart. He
sccs behind thc miracle to the loving
heart of Cod. In each blade of
grass, In each bursting seed, in each
tree spreading its leaves abroad, he
sccs the redemption of Gods' prom
lee. And he rests secure, because he
kumv s that God'has not . failed and
cannot fall, that the miracle will hap
pen again -and again for the help and
betterment of man.
Did you ever try, writing para

You have got the paragraphs to throw

difference if some other guy happen

You've got the originality buck of you
and you'll set the world giggling yet.
Thunderatlon! ain't that a pippin!
Pructicully the same idea as yours,
but expressed a bit differently. Well,
this is too much of n thing. You |

that your brilliant thinks haven't |

You've read nearly half way.down
the column and everything you have

thing there that you couldn't beat to a

Ugh? What's this? Well, if that guy
hasn't fallen for thc same freak story, j
only. like a bull in a cliluu shop, he's)
