the 76 Million Campaign has been in

be placed by the end of the Campaign

67,782. The death rate from tuber
culosis is 14.2% higher in the South
than in tho Nation as a whole. One
roason for the exceedingly high death
rate in the South is the great preva
lence of the plague among tho negroos
who are especially susceptible to tuber
culosis, tho death rate among them
being three and- one-half times that
among tho whites. Hut inasmuch as
the negroos will doubtless continue to
be intimately associated with the
whites In domestic and other work In
the future, tho whites will never be
safe from infoction until the negreen,
as well as the whites, have beon freed
from the plaguo.
It has been estimated that the to
tal economic loss from tho ravages
of tuberculosis In the South is $175,?

warfare against the plague tho Bap
tists hope to greatly reduce this loss,
as well as to save the life and promote

The word "temptation" menus trial
or testing, it is a test of character,
not mi incitement to wrongdoing.
Sometimes these testings ure unlooked
for, so thut we ure suld "to fall" into

refers to their variety rallier than
their number. They ure ninny sided,
many colored ; some severe, others
mild, some prolonged, others brief.

the words "all Joy." We uro lo count

But how cnn we do this? Only by

Faith Is the most precious and pow
erful thing In the world. Its educa
tion is of untold importance. A re
turned missionary from Tibet recently
said In a public address, "God ls look
ing everywhere for men and women
who will trust Ulm." Trust Is devel
oped through trial. Under divine di
rection, Moses lcd thc Israelites to
the Red sea that they might learn In
experience the power of God to save,
and that their trust in Him might be
strengthened, .lesus took Uls disciples
into a storm thut through tho test
they might learn to trust, because of
the experimental knowledge of His
power to deliver.
Every trial ls a trial of faith. We
never full till we fall Inside. Every
outward yielding Is the expression
und result of a surrender within. Tho
trial of faith ls declared to be much
more precious than gold that perish*
etil. Cold Is the standard of value In
the world of men und affairs, but In
the higher realm of spirit and char
acter, faith is the standard, the faith
that endures. From ibis springs every
noble and Christlike quality.
All the New Testament writers push
Into prominence this point of view.
"We glory In tribulations," says raul,
because they produce In tis patience,
steadfastness and hope. These are
Christlike qualities, the dower of
Christ inn character, the possession of
which constitutes the triumph which
makes all the tests worth while. When
wc become Christians, n new life from
above ls Imparted to us. Every Christ
like and gracious quality ls enfolded
In this new life, even as tho oak tree
ls wrapped up In the acorn. The un
folding and development of this life
ls the one big outstanding problem
confronting us. Without the manifold
temptations, the new life would be
dwnrfed and stunted. Because of
their operation and result, the life ls
perfected, so that whore patience has
her porfect work the Ufo stands "per
feet and entire, wanting nothing."
Somehow the Christian life develops
best under adversity. All sunshine
makes the desert. Life needs clouds
in order to have a glorious sunset.
Another factor entering into the
triumph emanating from the manifold
temptations ls the capacity to enjoy
which those have who patiently en
dure tho sufferings of this present
time. They will best be able to enjoy
the glories that shall be revealed In us.
So then, there ls reason to "count lt
all Joy when ye fall Into manifold
temptations, knowing that the trial of
your faith worketh patience." This ls
not mere passive submission, but rath
er endurance. It Is the faith that does
not shrink, the perseverance that does
not fnlter under burdens. When this
sort of patience Is permitted to have
a perfect work, perfection of life and
character ls reached, and this ls the
triumph that makes all endurance
worth while and enables us to count lt
every sm*t of Jpy when we "fall Into
manifold temptations." It Is possible
to binder this triumph unless the hu
man will co-operates with the divine
purpose. There ls grnce enough for
this also, so that sufferings may bo
borne Joyously as woll os submissively.

swer would he, "Their mothers." As

While Journeying along through

that lhere is nothing for us to do,
hut ii' we look for gladness wo will
lind il all tho while, and by doing so
wt? will make oilier folks happy.
! shall say thal by nature wo aro
all mortals and choose our own ways.
Prionds, lol us all try to choose tho
good way. Wo cnn rompa re onu s
life lo a single flay, First let us im
agine a beautiful morning wheq tho
sun is pending its first rays over the
eastern horizon. Thia makes us feel
happy and ready for our work, what
ever lt may 'ne.
Secondly wo see a man early at
his work, and as the day gets bright
er he becomes happior. When noon
comes bc is ready for refreshment.
This refresh men*, at noon may bo
compared to ^the turn of tho tide"
in a man's life, or, rather, when ho
becomes a christian, thus preparing
himself for the discharge of his real
duties. After this he has an eager
deslro to go on with his work which
so interests him.
The day is shortening, and as tho
bright sun sinks slowly in tho west
he has finished the desired day's
work. As the shados of night como
on he prays earnestly to Cod tho Fa
ther of Heaven und earth, which act
renders his heart froo from all caro
on earthly things. Ho now lays him
self gently to sleep, ns doth the dy
ing man who knows his life has been
well spent on earth.
On the other hand, we think of
the man who hus lived an indolent,
unhappy life. Perhaps his life wits
too well furnished in boyhood. Yet
he had a chance to do good. Wo soo
him as he goes along; ho does not
seem to he living a real life. In Hmo
of trouble he has no friends, yet
plenty of fellows to gel him Into fur
ther trouble. When death overtakes
a man who has lcd such a life, ah
is dark to him. His sun is hidden in
darkness, and ho is lost.
Now, ns wo have meditated on a
few points in life, let us next con
slderw hat we should do to make lite

watchword. Every day we live there
Is something wo can do to make oth

giving a few pennies to help tho lit

prepare us for our llfo's work In tho
