BUTTER SHIPPED IN SUMMER
Parcel Post Will Prove Entirely Satis
factory if Proper Condition?
(Prepared by the United States Depart*
ment ol Agriculture.)
Parcel post shipments of butter are
likely to be subjected to conditions,
especially during the summer, which
may cause deterioration and Injure the'
quality of the butter. It Is highly de
sirable, say specialists of the United
States Department of Agriculture,
that every possible precaution be tak
en before shipment Particularly is
this true of farm-made butter, because
conditions affecting its quality and
condition usually cannot be controlled
as easily as in creameries. Farm
made butter, however, should be mar
keted Just as satisfactorily as cream
ery-made butter when it Is properly
made and prepared for shipment
. It is necessary to maintain proper
conditions ?n the care of the milk and

cream and the making of butter If a
marketable product is to be produced.
Too much importance, it is said, can
not be given to maintaining cleanly
conditions in the stable and ta other
places where the milk, cream, or but
ter are produced or kept for they ab
sorb odors and spoil very quickly. It
Is Important too, that these products
be kept In a cool place. High temper
atures should always be avoided, as
they produce a soft olly condition of
thj butter which ls undesirable.
In manufacturing butter on the farm
or ta a factory the buttermilk must
be removed and washed out aod the
proper amount of salt must be Incor
porated evenly. Frequently parcel
post shipments ol' farm butter are un
satisfactory to customers because
proper methods were not used ta mak
ing It and the qufdity and condition of
the butter thereby Injured before It
was shipped. Foi: the satisfaction of
customers lt is Important that a uni
form quality of batter be produced.
Methods used In preparing butter
for parcel post shipping depend large
ly upon the local conditions and style
of package used. To insure delivery
In the best possible state, butter, after
being packed, printed and placed ta
cartons, should be chilled or hardened
thoroughly before lt Is shipped.
One of the most satisfactory ways
of preparing butter for shipment Is in
regular one-pound prints, the stand
ard print measuring 2% by 2% by 4%
Inches. Every pound print should be
neatly wrapped in regular butter
parchment or paper. A second thick
ness of such paper has been found to
add materially to the carrying possi
bility of the butter. Waxed paper may
be used for the second wrapping. As
a further protection to the print, lt
should be placed In heavy manila
paraffin cartons, which may be ob
tained from folding paper-box com
panies, either plain or printed as a
stock carton or with a special private
Corrugated fiber-board shipping con
tainers of various, sizes may be ob
tained for 8hippTng one-pound prints
of butter. These boxes or containers
practically Insulate the butter and fur
nish much protection against heat
Further protection may be obtained by
wrapping the container in stout wrap
ping paper. The whole should be tied
securely with a strong cord. In tying
the twine lt should be drawn tightly
around the package so as to Insure
Its proper carriage.
Some persons ship butter by parcel
post ta Improvised^ home-made con
tainers. Clean, discarded, corrugated
paperboard cartons are obtained from
the grocer or other merchant at small
cost or frequently without any cost at
aU. It le possible to cut a piece of
paper board ta such shape and size
that when lt is folded It will form a

The Things of God
and Things of Men
By REV. JOHN C. PAGE
Teacher o? Bible Doctrine, Moody
Bible Institute. Chicago.
TEXT.-But he turned and said unto
Peter, Get thee behind me. Satan; thou
art an offense unto me; for thou savor est
not the things that be or God, but thew
that be of men.-Matt 16:23.
The latter part of thia chapter
brings into prominence the person,
passion and pros
pect of the Son of
Man. The words
of Peter In verse
16 bring into clear
view his person aa
"the Christ, tho
Son of the living
God." His passion
is described In
verse 21. He must
go to Jerusalem
and be killed and
be raised again.
The prospect is
presented in verse 27. "The Son o?
man shall come In the glory of his
Father with his angels." To deviate
from any of these three truths is to
descend from the level of "the thing!
that be of God" to the plane of "the
those that be of men."
Peter ignorantly opposed the second
of these essential truths and received
the rebuke recorded in verse 23. "Get
thee behind me, Satan, for thou art
an offence unto me; for thou savour
est not the things that be of God, bul
those that be of men".
From the viewpoint of the purely
human-"the things that be of men,"
the suggestion of Peter carries nothing
with lt to meet so severe a rebuke as
the Lord administered to him. "Pity
thyself or "Be lt far from thee" la
the Impulsive expression of self-in
terest and self preservation, both the
Master's and his own. It ls altogether
I in harmony with "the things that be
of men." But as It ls written, "My
thoughts are not your thoughts, neither
are your ways my ways, saith the
Lord, for as? the heavens are high
above the earth so are my ways above
your ways and my thoughts above
"The things that be of men," even
religious things, are expressed In terms
of self Interest. "Pity thyself said
Peter, "Get thee behind me," replied
Jesus, "thou art an offence unto me."
Then said Jesus unto His disciples,
"If any man will come after me, let
him deny himself and take up his
cross and follow me."
The things that be of God are best
learned at Calvary. In Its message,
death and resurrection are the domi
nant notes. "The Son of man must go
to Jerusalem and be killed and be
raised again." If any man will follow
Him, he must go the same way, the
way of the cross and the tomb and
the resurrection morning. "If a grain
of wheat fall Into the ground and die,
It bringeth forth much fruit." Apart
from death there can be no resurreo
tlon Into "newness of life."
No man can realize the best until
he has let himself go. Human nature
shrinks from this. It ls the acknowl
edgment of failure, the confession of
the inability of self, and also of re
liance upon Another. In "the things
that be of men," a large place ls given
to mottoes, laws, standards, Ideals,
symphonies and so forth, but "the
things that be of God" belong to a
different realm. "If any man will
come after me, let him deny himself
and take up his cross and follow me."
The first meaning of the cross ls
death. The cross crosses us out so
that Another may occupy the place
formerly occupied by self. This is
the denial of self, a different matter
from self-denial which Is practiced
during Lent or on other occasions, and
which fits easily Into the things of men.
To be a Christian Is not a weak sen
timental sort of a thing; It Is real,
vital, fundamental. It Involves a |
change of outlook and a new concep
tion of life. I
The cross of Christ was inevitable
to Him because of His Identity with
os. He must go to Jerusalem and
die. The merited goal of the human
race is death In all its Implications.
The Son of God became the Lamb of
God that He might put away sin and
overcome death. By faith we may
behold Him bearing our sins in His
own body on the cross and there put
ting them away forever.
But more than that He ls In His
death and resurrection, the forerunner
of a great multitude which no man
can number, who have taken the same
view of life as He did. They have
taken up the eros? and followed Him.
In them. God bas made the death and
resurrection life of Christ so real and
effective that they can assert with
Paul, "I am crucified with Christ,
nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ
liveth Jn me." Tills ls a supernatural
work wrought in the soul by the power
of God. Until this miracle is per
formed the genius of the Christian re
ligion cannot be understood, Christian
experience cannot be satisfactory, no*
can a Christian theology or philos
ophy be built up.

The Old Clock
Bj DOROTHY WHITCOMB J
.??, 1921, Western Newspaper Union.) .
The old clockmaker was seated In
his office, his head upon his hands, his
elbows on his desk, pondering. He oc
cupied a tiny office in an old-fashioned
part of New York, downtown, and he
sat there for a great part of each day
since he came to America fifty years
before, bringing with him the skill of
twelve generations of Swiss clock
makers. Walser's clocks never varied
by more than five minutes a year,
?reat, old-fashioned grandfather's
clocks they were, and because the
modern fashion ls for cheap und gaudy
things, he sold only to a few old-fash
ioned customers, and his whole stock
was stored In the small warehouse and
workshop at the back of his office.
And he had driven Ernst, his only
son, his* only child, out of his home
forever. Ernst was the last of the
Walsers, and with his action he had
effectively cut himself off from all the
generations that were to come. How
foolish his quarrel had been! It was
about a girl whom Ernst wanted to
marry, and because he had not told
his father all about it old Walser had
"Who is she?" he asked angrily.
And Ernst answered that she was a
domestic servant. Then the old man's
anger flared out, for the Walsers
traced their descent from princes and
Walser had mixed so little with his
kind that the old Uadltlons lingered.
Old Walser turned to hie son.
He pointed to an old clock which
had ticked away the hours minute by
minute ever since he had brought it.
"Ernst," . he said hoarsely, "that
' clock was made by my father for his
serene highness the prince of Lutter*
ling. My father was once engaged to
marry the prince's daughter. She died,
but the match was never considered
unequal. The Walsers have been a
proud old family, though they are
clockmakers. And you-you-you are
going to marry a servant
"Well, marry her, but from this mo
ment you are no longer a Walser. I
disown you by the memory of my
father." He pointed still to the time
piece. "When that clock, which my
father made in 1833, goes wrong by as
much as ten minutes In a day, I will
ask you to come back to me," he sold.
And Ernst went
The old clock never varied by as
much as a minute a day. Its meian*
choiy tick was wearing the old man's
heart away. He moaned in his misery
as he sat at his desk. How gladly he
would have had his son back, servant
wife and all I If only he had not been
A good boy, too-Ernst had always
been a good son to him.. He swept
his fingers across the glass, abd the*
clock ticked heavily In answer.
And then a wonderful thing hap
pened. A sudden whirring sound was
heard, and the hands began racing
furiously. And then they stopped and
the old clock stood still at half past
That was the precise time at which
Ernst put on his hat and left the

and stared in astonishment at this
Presently, when curiosity overcame
his terror, he opened the case and
peered In. And swiftly enough the
cause was revealed. Wedged tightly

looked at It Years before he had
brought that mouse home for his son
Ernst, in the days when he was a baby,
playing about the floor of the nursery.

Walser rose up solemnly and put on
his hat He turned to the clock and
his voice was choking with emotion.
."I know now," he said, "that this ls
a judgment and a miracle in one."
Ten minutes later he arrived at a
dingy, shabby house, and made his
way up to the top floor and knocked.
A comely young woman came to the
"You are-?" queried Walser.
"I am Mrs. Walser," she answered
tn a very sweet voice. "You have
business with my husband?"
"You are my son's wife?" shouted
the old man. "Why, I thought-I
And suddenly he flung his arms
about her and drew her to him and
kissed her. And at the audible sound
Ernst came to the door, looking shab
by and thin, but with fire In his eye
and fists doubled to repel this assault
upon the sanctity of his home. See
ing his father he halted dead.
"Come here, my boy," cried the old
man. "It's all forgotten-the clock
ran down. Come with me and I will
tell you all about lt"

When This Was Colleton.
. Some readers of the wording of
the old land grant from King George
HI,-to one Nicholas Mickler .in 1771
for certain lands, "two hundred
acres situated on Horse Pen creek
and the waters of Cuffee Town in
Colleton county" etc., as printed in
Tuesday'3 Index-Journal, may have
been a bit puzzled over the location
"Colleton county. That Kirksey and
this section of the state were ever in
"Colleton county" probably is not
Por some years after the establish
ment of the colony of South Caro
lina there were no counties. It was
simply "a colony."
But in 1682 the proprietors order
ed that the colony bedivided into
three counties, Berkeley which in
cluded Charleston; Craven county to
the north of what is now the eastern
part of the state; and Colleton coun
ty which included all south of Ber
keley county, or what is now the wes
tern part of the state. These three
counties, however, at that time, were
to extend only thirty-five miles in
land. It was doubtless intended to la
ter add other counties, after the di
visions in England. But for years af
ter, evidently for almost a hundred
?years after, the colony was consider
ed in England as having only the
'three counties, Craven, Berkeley and
Colleton. This explains how in this old
grant from King George land in what
is now the Kirksey section of this
county was described as "situated on
Horse Pen creek in Colleton county."
Dr. Wm. A Schaper, in his mono
graph on "Sectionalism in South Car
olina," a thesis which won for him the
Justin Windsor prize offered by the
American Historical Association,
says of these first three counties:
"These divisions were called counties
but their organization was hardly that
pf the county. There was a high sher
iff for each. but there was
there only one county court with ju
risdiction ' over the entire colony. It
held all its sessions at Charleston."
From this condition arose the discon
tent in the upper section of the colo
ny over representation in the Assem
bly and that led to the creation of
further counties, this and the need
for officers to keep the peace.
In 1769 a bill was passed by the
Assembly creating seven districts in
stead of counties These districts
were Charleston, Georgetown, Beau
fort, Cheraw, Ninety Six, Camden
and Orangeburg. A sheriff was to be
appointed f:r each district. Court
was t? be he'.d semi-annually by four
.circu?: judges at each court house.
^The courts however had only limit
ed jurisdiction. The court house for
Ninety Six district was located at
what afterward became the village of
By 1790 two other districts had
been added, Washington which em
braced what is now Pickens and Oco
nee counties and part of what is now
Greenville; and Pinckney which in
cluded what is now Spartanburg, Un
ion, Cherokee. York, Chester and
