rest.-Matt 11:28.
lunn old church tn abc Isle of Wight
there st a nd s n marble monument erect
ed by Quocn Vic
toria. It ls a fe
male ligure reclin
ing her Jiead up
on nn upon book,
on the stony page
of which this text
appears. Thus ls
memorialized the
death of Princess
Elizabeth w h o,
during tho coin
monwonltb wura
in England, lan
guished a prisoner
tn 'Carisbrook castle, where one morn
ing was found her lifeless form lean
ing her bend upon her Bible, opened
at these words : "Come unto nie, and
I will give you rest" Faithful, sol
emn message, yet sweet and warm
from thal cold marble! There ls no
rest for the heurt, though lt be the
heart of a princess, save in Christ
alone.
"Como !" This word reveals the In
finite Snvlor-heurt. From God's call
to Nosh to "come into the ark" to the
hist cull of Revelation, 'SLot him that
is athirst, come," it occurs, nineteen
hundred times in Scripture, ringing
from every page with earnest entrea
ty hnd wurmest welcome, and telling
of n love that waits to pour out its
exhaustions fulness Into the heart that
will but draw near to receive. But
no less does it tell of the need o#
all mankind that must forsake itself
to lind its help in Another. "Come"
from your helpless ruin ; "come" from
your futile efforts nt self-help-; '.come"
from tho unrest that sin has made,
and 'T will give you rest."
"Come unto Me." Not to a church
are you called, nor to ? system ot re
ligion, but to a Person, one Person
alone. It ls not a system of doctrine,
however true, nor a code of ethics,
however high, that He is offering to
sinful men : it ls Himself, with all
that He has.
Ah, who ls this standing up before a
whole world full of restless hearts
and offering Himself as a remedy for
all their ills? Oh, come and see: it
ls my lovely Lord I Is He enough?
Cnn He do what He says? Ask any
fioul that has come to Him! Every
generation slnco these Words wore
spoken has had Ita millions of rejoic
ing witnesses to their truth, and lu
every language that men huve spoken
new words have bad to be found to
express the new blessedness thnt has
lilied men's hearts and lives. Yes, He
does what He promises, and everyone
can prove it for himself.
And whom is He calling to Himself?
It ls thou, O soul, rending now these
lines-thou who never yet hnst come.
It was thee He thought of when He
said, "All ye that labor and aro heavy
laden." Labor and heavy loads aro
tokens of the curs?? pronounced upon
creation because of ?In, and no living
being escapes lt. Doesn't He know?
Doesn't He know the desolation, tho
dlspeace, the restlessness In every
life? When He spoke of thc rest that
He would give was It not because He
knew that of rest there was none In
hearts where sin has reigned? Be lt
known unto you, then, that this ls
your claim upon Him-your need, your
lack of that which Ho alone can give.
Oh, the wonder of lt: your sin, and
your sin alone, gives you title to come
to Him I
But how and when are you to come?
Just ns you are and now 1 No waiting
for fitness or worthiness. If you could
put away your sin your heart would
find rest without Him. If you could
moke yourself flt for His presence
you would not need Him and His invi
tation would he an impertinence. Aa
you are and with your sins, come to
Him. Fitness ls not attained, lt ls ob
tained. He gives itt
And the one thing thnt, above all
others, your heart ls seeking now, ls
the thing that you shall find when you
come: REST 1 Rest from all the ter
rible consequences of sin-from Its
guilt and penalty from the awful re
morse that lt Inevitably brings.
One touch of thc nnll-senrred hand
and the record of your life I? wiped
out forever, so that God Himself can
find nothing against you any longer.
Ho has Himself borne the penalty, so
that He can on n righteous ground of
fer you His rest. Best, sweet rest I
Rest from this poor self nt last 1 Rest
from bitter memory I rest from the
chagrin of a vain and misspent life!
Rest I For this, Ob, Loni, I cornel
Ho GIVES lt I Only He cnn ! There
are no questions that ne has to ask.
There are no conditions to bo Imposed.
As you are, and now, come to Him,
and He does lt all I
Seeking Strength From God.
We seek His strength-power from
without, from above, but we must
ask for strength reasonably; knowing
what we want, and why. To know
this truthfully ls like the way we
prepare for massive building. We do
not lay thc stones upon the surface;
wo dig deep, and clear away the light,
drifted soil, that the deeper com
pressed earth may receive tho hard
grained concrete and tho stone.

OF INTEREST TO POSTMASTERS.
Postoflice Establishment Not Institu
tion for Front or Politics.
Columbia, March 15.-An an
announcemnt that will be of interest
to all postmasters of,(he Siate, and
that probably means that there will
he no reappointments of postmas
ters at this time, with thc Incoming
G. O. P. administration, was received
by postmasters in South Carolina
this week. It is from Postmaster
General Hays, and ls on tho author
ity of President Harding:
"Tho postal establishment ls not
an institution for profit or politics,"
says the statement from Mr. Hays.
"lt is an institution for service, and
it is the President's purpose that
every effort shall be made to Improve
that service.
"Every effort shall be exercised to
humanize the industry. Labor is not
a commodity. That idea was aban
doned 1921 years ago next Easter.
There are 300,000 employees. They
have the training and they have the
hand to do the job well, and they
shall have tho heart to do lt well.
Wo purpose to approach this matter
so that they shall be partners with
us in this business. It Is a great
business Institution, serving every
Individual in the country. I know
that, with 300,000 men and women
pledged to serve all tho people, and
honestly discharging that dtttv. fair
ly treated and properly appreciated,
all partners with us Itere in this
great enterprise, we can do this Job.
It's going to be done.
This ls taken, to mean that there
will be no radical changes in the
government's policy towards tho
postmastorshlps. Under the present
order of things tho poslmnstershlps
aro civil service appointments, under
executive order of tho recent admin
istration. Unless this order is re
voked, the civil sorvico postmastor
shlps will not bo subject to removal
or refilling. If this order should be
revoked lt will mean that present
postmasters will even then hold of
fice until tho end of their terms.

halla. The letter ls said to contain
charges of immorality on the part of
Rev. Whitman, and illegal relations
between him and certain other per
sons are hinted at. Mr. Morgan's at
torney In court yesterday sought to
prove that the letter was not writ

the same* as that of another letter
which Mr. Morgan admitted having
written and mailed to Mr. Hubbard.
Sensational testimony is expected
when the case is heard in court. .

Dependable Ford Quality
FORD DURABILITY began back in 1003 when Henry Ford started experimenting with Vanadium
Steel and heat-treated processes. Ho know tlmt a moro exact temper! og ?r steel for motor car
building must bo worked out. Vanadium, it was learned, when added to moiton stool, gives to that
steel n greater toughness and adhosiveness. And now other alloys have beon found which aro su
perior to Vanadium. With tho Ford Motor Company constant progress is tho daily companion. Tho
Ford products-Car, Truck, Tractor-grow in quality daily. Heat-treating tempers each part so
that it. will best withstand tho wear and tear to which it is subjected. For?! chemists and analysts
have created formulas and standard specifications for every individual part of tho Ford Oar-not
only for tho stool, but for everything from pneumatic tiros to top.
FORD DURABILITY Isn't a nutttter of accident-it is a matter of painstaking thoroughness lu
