Keep close to the Bible and

The psalmist says: They that love
Thee will be glad when they see me,
because I have hoped in Thy Word.
When the farmer goes out into his
'cattle yard with a big basket of com,
the animals will come a running and
keep coming as long as he has the
food for them.
The Bible is the great ymoral and
spiritual food basket, and. as long as
we feed the people out of it, they
will came and keep coming.
This fs the secret- of getting and
holding an audience.
Just as good food, well prepared
and well served, will bring the peo
ple to the church supper, so the
good food of the Word, well prepared
and well served will bring them to
the church services.

Under the reconstruction of the
Board of'Trustees of Crispus Attucks
Home, its officers feel that they are
entitled to the hearty co-operation
and support of the people of the
Twin Cities seeing that the home
is put in proper condition for the
of its inmates, pur old folks
and orphan children. And we the
assure the public that we
will not lack in doing our part to
see that everything is kept as it
should, be. We have investigated the
method in which the business of the
home has been done and find, with
out criticism, that it is necessary to
make some changes in order that wefe
may have a correct repord/ of every
thing that is done.
Crispus Attucks Home needs $1,000,
and the board is planning to raise
this sum in 90 days, with the sup
port and help of the generous public.
