T15XT--Tho hupo Bot hoforo ua, which
hopo wo liuvo tm nu anchor ot tho soult
both ?uro und stcadtasl, and which QU ter
eth into' that within tho veil.-Hebrews
6:18, 19.
Down on ilu: sumls of tho Jersey
shore buried deep, Hes the broken
portion of what
was once ti proud,,
beautiful vessel.
Strong of steel,
she plied her mis- I
siou from port to
port, currying u
precious cargo of
human life and
property. At low
tide you can step
a bon rd what re
mains of the bat
tered hull, und
wulk astern to where hulf of the steel
must stands upright. I have often
wondered ns 1 wutched the wuves
dash over the wreck how thnt ship
came ashore. A dark night-a fear
ful .storm-n tempestuous wind-a
drifting vessel-dangerous shoals-u
Mindy prison, What docs that vessel
need? An anchor. Ah, but she has
nn anchor, great und ponderous. It
luis long since gone to the bottom of
the sea, but still the vessel drifts
closer mid closer to destruction. What
is wrong? Tho anchor won't hold
no plate for it to fusion its dukes
it drags-it won't hohl-the ship is
doomed. She was wrecked boca uso*
thc anchor would not hold, Two things
ure necessary it? save a vessel in the
storm when drifting nt the mercy of
Wind und wave au anchor with an
uueiioruge,
This ls Paul's graphic picture of the
soul's need. When the storms of Ufo
ure raging, mid tho tempest wild
sweeps u cross the son, we need some
thing to hold and something to hold
to. These are needed und these uro
provided. ' !
First, the anchor. "Which hope wo i
have ns un anchor." Our hope ls our j
.inchor. What is hope? The com- '
bloat lon of desire and expectation. ;
lt ls that which reaches out ami lays
hold. Like an anchor lt must Imvo
size and strength. The largeness of
our hope determines the mensuro of
its holding power. But hope ls not
enough. The world of ungodly men
hus hope. Every walk of life is lilied
with ll. Hope of health brightens
tin; room of the sick. Hope ol wealth
lightens the toil of the poor. Hopo
of fume rewards the sacrifices of the
explorer. Hope of noble living com-1
pens?tes the drudgery of the faith-1
fill mother, giving ho,r life for her
children in the monoton? us struggle,
Hut hope of Itself is not enough, < lt
needs un anchorage. Something to1
grip. The ship ls held by thc anchor
casi Into the unseen depth where lt
luya hold upon the rock that, cannot !
be moved. No matter how strong and
unbreakable the anchor, lt must hold
to save. i
Second, tho anchorage ls Christ. I
"That which enterelh the veil." "My j
hope ls built on nothing less than
Jesus' blood and righteousness." Ho !
alone must he the object of hope.
Tile whole content of Christianity cnn
be expressed In two simple sentences, j
"Christ for me," that is conversion.
"Me for Christ," that is consecru- !
lion.
We boast not a philosophy, science,
or system. We ure united to ll Per?
son, united In un organic union, eter
nally inseparable by His death and
resurrection. "He was delivered for
our offenses, ami raised for our Justi
fication." lie Is a living Christ. Ile ;
Imparts His lifo to nil who believe. '.
They ure Ills-He protects und pro
vides. He intercedes. Ho will como 1
and receive us to Himself. What cnn
separate us from the lovo of Cod? |
Anchored to the Rock that cannot
move, grounded Orin und deep In tho
Snvlor's love.

sheep bell, a ball of twlno, and we
weio "all set."
Tally was now hold firmly between
the knees of my younger brother
hoad to tho rear and tall fore, where
timely assistance could bo rendered.
Ervine then, with Charlie's and my
assist.ince, soon had the dog's tall
looking rather like a junk shop, with
its array of cnns and boils. Ile was
now released and given due momen
tum. As tho peas rattled and the
bells rang, ho gathered right good
headway, and would doubtless have
made bettor timo but for ono of tho
cans becoming loosened and from its
unfastened top began to distribute
peas with alarming waste in a sort
of zigzag row down tho hill. We
speeded tho dog up a bit by whiz
zing chips In his general direction,
and by tho time ho had struck a
good speed, he attempted to leap
over tho chopping block, thereby en
tangling his rather too long hell cord
around the axe handle and disengag
ed tho sheep bell. This was discon
certing, but not entirely hopeless.
Making a wide detour of thc bee
hives, he rushed with all speed down
the hill toward tho cane-brake, mak
ing a head-on with the mooley cow,
who was placidly grazing in thc or
chard, and whose affection for hint, I
under, tho most favorable circuin- i
stances, was not overly strong, she ;
throw a scare into him by running
nt him with lowered head, thereby ,
i
accelerating his speed considerably,
lu '.his encounter the cow bell, adorn
ing the dog's tail rather than the :
cow's nock, became entangled In her
tether, and Tally was now relieved
o? all save three cans of rattling
peas. With these he plunged into
thc depth of tho cane-brake and lay
down with a feeling, no doubt, of
having "run well his race."
At this critical juncture, pa, who
had a most uncanny way of appear
ing at the wrong time, hove into
>iow. Thc very first thing that
caught bis attention was a most ir
regular row of dried seed peas cov
eting a space between the white oak
and the chopping block, where there
seemed to be quito a handful. Ho
knew intuitively that mischief was
afoot, and began counting heads lo
seo if all wore present.
"Where ls James?" be queried,
well knowing that he was the ring
leader wheuover mischief was afoot.
"I think he went, down the hill,
Slr,to take the cow boll ?.way from
Tally," answered Charlie.
"How did ho manage to get hold
of tho cow boll?" pa inquired, well
knowing its accustomed place, far
out of reach of even the destructive
Tally.
"Ho got his tall tangled up with
lt somehow," answered the young
ster, for all tho world like he ex
pected the Governor to believe him.
"And where did Tally get these
peas, and this empty tin, with all of
this twlno on it?"
"I dunno, sir," answered he. while
pa began picking tip a few peas, ex
amining them quito too carefully to
mean any good to us. At this time
Ervine hove Into view from around
the loom house, and was just in time
to solve the perplexing problem of
the peas.
"Yes, sir, I got them from the bas
ket on Ibo porch. They look just
Uko those In the bin, and wero a lot
moro convenient," he explained.
"Yes, my soed peas. I had just
gathered and shelled them, and hod
expected to sack thom this after
noon."
'Ho now cnllcd us up to him and
made it clenr to us that all those
peas were to be carefully gathered
up, trash free, and restorod to the
basket. How well lt was dono was
shown somo weeks later, after a
warm rain, when tho tell-talo green
plants showed up In a sort of awk
ward squad dow across tho yard,
wP.h a liberal clump of them sprout
ing from tho baso of tho chopping
block. This was most shocking, but
just another evidence of one's sins
finding one out.
Having recovered most of the con
tents of one can, Ervine sot about to
retrloVo tho throe attached lo Tally's
tall. Tho dog was shy, however, and
refused to como from cover. "Just
Uko a nigger," Ervine savagely com
mented. We tried to tempt him from
tho brake willi choice pieces of meat,
and Ervino exhausted all his stock
of ondenring names to no avail. Fi
nally Tally pricked up his noso-ho
simply could never have lifted thoso
long enrs. He had hoard a volco he
know and loved-that of lils former
owner, Davis. Ho came slinking
from tho brake, and Ervino cut tho
twlno, releasing tho cans. Meantime,
pa had discovered a rabbit trying to
got Into tho gardon through an open
ing In tho palings, and callod for
Tally to como and show lils worth.
Tally went very deliberaloly In tho
general direction of tho sound of
voices. Pa and Davis wore parloying
rogardlng the loan of tho cross-cut
saw, C?e ada, and "a han' o' smokln'
tobacco." l'a called tho dog to the
place whore tho rabbit was trying to
make his Invasion, and put him di
rectly on the hot seen i of friend rab
bit. Tally, instead of picking up tho
trail, however, dropped over and
rolled on his back, dropping his foro
feet limply down on his belly, und
there he lay until Davis called him
to "come boah." ito got up and
slunk, crouching low, toward Davis,
who explained that "dat dog j is uoa'
feel lak runnin no rabbit JOF n
In another moment wo saw uti vis
trudging homeward, bearing on his
shoulder the saw and adz, and tn his
hand the "han' o' smokln' tobacco,"
whilo at his heels was Tally, tho one
time coveted pup.
We did not soo or hour anything
of Tally again until, some weeks
later, as a special treat, I was per
mitted to accompany tho boys to
mill. We made a dolour by Davis's
cabin to make polite inquiry about
him, when our attention was arrest
ed by the sounds, somehow strangely
familiar, emitting from tho corn
field, and sounding like a combina
tion of yowls of pain and barks of
Joy, while Tally, our one-time dog,
dashed into view in close proximity
to a cotton-tail. Ho had managed lo
get up a speed which put his hind
feet somewhat ill advance of his fore
feet at every bound, and thc impres
sion was that the rabbit would either
drop dead of heart failure or bo
caught, nt once.
Davis, who was loading bis old
shotgun, slopped In bis operations
and eyed the scene with the pride
of a mol her showing off bur preco
cious child. "Now, what'd 1 tell yet-'.'
Dat dawg Jes natchorlly ain't used
ter whito folks an' dey ways. Didn't
1 ^ell you-ali dat he wtizzer a nigger
dawg?" He leaned his gun against
tho cabin and continued his mono
logue: "Dat dawg would-er broke
his heart couldn't ho cove back
home. I ais't golnter need ter load
dis olo gun, cause dat dawg gwtnter
run dat rabbit clean down an* bring
him home tor me. He gwlnter wear
him clean out er runnin'." Then,
sagely shnkisg his head, he conclud
ed: "I Jes knode dat dawg gwlnter
como straight homo Bonn's he boah
mo talkin', cause he ain't no white
folks' dawg-he er nigger dawg."
Davis was right.
Upon a recital of tho Incident to
father, he lapsed lulo bis brother's
tongue by saying, "ulnd 1 am that,
be is sae bonnie and sae Viyltbe. Ye
n<\w ken that ho is no lit addition to
the house."
'And father was right.

ls usually most satisfactory to pur
chase Lwo-year-old roots from some
seedsman or dealer. The roots should '
be transplanted during thc late au
tumn or early spring.
Before setting out the plants, the
land should be loosened very deeply,
either by subsoil plowing or deep spud
ing. It ls a good plan to rei. e the
topsoil and spade manure Into tue sub- j

replace the topsoil and add more

th? front seat, according to tho story
told hy Holcombe, who said that
Harlin thou declared that he had
paid for the car and had a right to
