phonographs, sub
marines, airplanes, radiographs-these
things have crowded the horizon until
a gross materialism has constituted
the Held of endeavor, struggle and
achievement.
In the midst of this mad pursuit of
tho temporal and perishing, life, tho
greatest value of all, has been almost
forgotten ; has . become cheap, com
mon, n-surfelt In tho world's market.
Lifo, priceless and precious, crowd
ing the highways and byways of every
day activities, ls ground to dust oe
nenth the wheels of Industry, com
merce and pleasure Tho dally pa
pers aro' ono big catalogue of tho
cheapening estimate of lifo. With
tho speed fever upon us, the priceless
value of lifo is lost sight of, until a
hecatomb of victims is sacrificed on
the altar of accident, preventable dis-,
ease and dissipative follies.
Think Of the source of lifo, tho cost
of its development, Its marvelous pos
sibilities! Then remember thnt life
ls endless, projected Into an eternal
environment of weal or woo, and be
yond ali calculation.
Nothing In tho world of mntter,
however beautiful, however useful,
however wonderful, ls comparable.
Out of Cod's Hook speaks u voice from
every page, telling out the wonders
of life. Hear Christ's unanswerable
question: "What shall lt profit a
man if he gain tho whole world and
lose his life?"
*- Lifo is tho fubulous Inherllnnco of
every human being. Yet Scripture
says it is the price poid'tor the cheap
est, commonest commodity In the
world-sin. Sin that pushes its dark
ugly face up everywhere; that
abounds llko woods growing alike in
tlio most carefully cultivated gardens
and on the deserted burren refuse
heaps ; that pollutes tho atmosphere
of city, town and hamlet until they
reek with the foulest poisons, Hie
deadliest fevers, the cruelest defile

Sin is so plentiful, so rampant, so
penetrating thnt lt ls unescupahle.
It ls tho enemy of life, Its Implacable
and undofentable nemesis. It ls a
rapid Infection, a treacherous con
tagion, a deadly poison gas, a loath
some leprosy. And It ls an Indivisible
part of huninn nature. God, who nlono
knows tho honrt of mnn, declares lt
"deceitful and above all things and
desperately wicked."

Shedding of blood ls the price of sin's
remission, and the lifers In the blood.
Life, the highest price paid for sin,
the cheapest commodity. ?
Life ls paid when Its blood ls shed.
This has always been recognized ns
the noblest net, the supreme sacrifice,
the richest expression of Intelligent
consciousness. It ls this which trans
figures the Indescribable horrors of
wnr, that wreathes with crowns of love
and affection the hero in any causo
who unselfishly, chivalrously glws nil.
Tho awful experience of the World
war brought near to hearth and home
the real value of life, und thc nenrer
lt enme to our hearth and home, the
greater its value. If It claimed the
liest, the dearest, our all, then, oh
how priceless the price we paid, he-"
cause of the awful tragedy of sin
the horrible misunderstanding of na
tions and peoples.
Men began to call death In battle
the supreme sacrifice, and Impute to
Jt eternal merit and efficacy ; hut lt
is still written: "Neither ls their sal
vation in any other, for there is none
other name under heaven given among
men whereby we must be saved," *
It Is the shedding of blood that re
mits sin, the blood of the sinless
Christ of God. He shed His blood,
ne gave Ills life. He paid the price.
Sin ls remitted. God can save you.
What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can moko me wholo annln?
Nothing but tho blood of Jesus.
What ought to bo the response of
sinners to such a Savior? "Just ns I
am, O Lamb of God, I como."

And the Lord said unto Moses, De

people which thou hast brought up out
of tho land of Egypt, unto the land
which I swear unto Abraham, to Isaac,

will I give it: and I will send an angel

UNKNOWN MAX IS FOUND DEAD.
Was n Cripple, and Besides His Name
Nothing; is Known'of Him.
(Sparenburg Journal, 3d.) ? I
Elmer Lewis, a white man about I
55 years of ago, was found dead in !
his room at Mrs. II. C. Bell's board-,
ing house on Magnolia street-about
noon to-day. Mr. Lewis had been In !
tho city for soveral days1 selling pen
elis. Ho was a crlpplo and carno
to Spartanburg at intervals. Ho was
well known at tho hoarding house,
but he had never spoken about any
relatives, and left nothing to indi
cate where his family lives.
A few hours beforo his remains
were found Mr. Lewis went to the
kitchen for somo hot water with
which to shave. When he did not
come to lunch, before tho tablo was
cleared off a lad was sent to his
room for him. The lad found him
lying on the floor with lils faco down.
He thought the man asleep and re
ported that he could not awaken
him. An investigation disclosed the
fact tliat he was dead, and had ap
parently just died a few moments
before bing found.
All efforts to locate any one re
lated to him have been futile so far.
It ls thought that his family probably
lives somewhere In Georgia.
Congressman Padgett Dend.
Washington, Aug. 2.-Representa

Mr. Padgett, who was war-tlmo
chairman of tho IIouso naval com
mittee, had boen 111 at his resldenco
for two months. Tho body will bo
taken to his homo nt Columbia,
Tenn., for burial.
iFirst elected from the Seventh
Tennessee district to tho 57th Con
gress, Mr. Padgett had served con
tinuously for twenty-two years. He
y/as tho dean of tho dolegfttlon.
Because of his Illness he had hoon
una bio to return to Tennessee to
conduct his campaign for renomina
tion In the State primary, sot for to
morrow. While ho had' opposition,
his friends believed that there was
llttlo danger of his defeat.
In the recent House fight over tho
naval appropriation hill Mr. Padgett
attracted attention by standing firm
against efforts to reduce tho person
nel of the navy below tho figuro
Which tho President and tho depart
ment regarded as unwise. Although
most members of his party voted to
cut tho enlisted forces, Mr. Padgett
opposed it, declaring his cxperlnoco
as former head of tho naval commit
tee convinced him tho country could
not afford to "go as low" as tho
. framers of tho bill had contemplated.

Jehovah's
Blessing
By REV. GEORGE E. GUILLE
Extension Department. Moody
Ulolo InatlUitc, Chicago.
TEXT-The Lord bless thoo, and koop
theo: Tho I^ord make lils fuco shine upon
tl ice, and be gruclous unto theo: The
Lord MCt up His couiitonanco upon thee,
and give thoo pcuco.-^Numbors 6:24-28.
Th? music of heaven rings lu these
words I Th reo measures of the divin
est melody ever
heard, a bar from
Ute infinite an
them to soothe
tho spirit with
heaven's calm
and turn the
whole life into a
long Sabbath day.
Mark the ele
mente in this
benediction, as
they reveal God's
attltudo toward
Ills people and
tell of His actlvl
Hes on their hehnlf.
i "Jehovah bless theo." You can
not explain that word, "bless." It
breathes Itself into tho soul like a
rare perfume, but you cannot tell
what lt ls. It touches the weary life
like a tender mother's hand and lifts
lt up Into rest and strength. You
know by sweet experience what lt ls,
but you cannot defino lt. It ls tho
heart of God disclosed. It embraces
all other elements found In this bene
diction; the keeping, the shining face,
graciousness, the uplifted countenance,
the gift of peace. That ls His bless
ing. Who that has beheld the cross
has seen tho Well-Beloved hanging
t?tere, can question what that great
heart holds for him? "He that spored
not his own Son, hut delivered Him
up for us all, how shall Ho not with
Him freely give us nil things?" Oh,
let us magnify that word, "bless."
2. "Jehovah make his face shine
upon thee." If His blessing reveals
HIS heart, this discovers His nearness.
Not afar off, but nigh. Do not think
of Him ns far away In heaven, veiled
away In His own eternity, unknown
and unknowable. There is no distance.
"Ye who sometime wore for off are
made nigh by the blood of Christ." In
that place of. nearness, His face shines.
What joy to know that the fnce frotu
which heaven nml earth shnll lice away
and that ls against them that do evil.
ls shining upon those In whoso midst
He dwells.
8. "Jehovah lift up his countenance
upon thee." Frequently have tho Lord's
people been heard to say thnt Ho lins
hidden 1R8 fnce from them. It can
j not lie I For He who looks upon His
J belov&l Son with unchanging delight
sees you. ?nd me ever In Him and
i cannot turn nwny from us. If there
j be hiding, lt ls you who nie doing
! it, not He. Tho clouds that obscure
the sun do not como from the sun.
4. The Lord he gracious unto thee.
This attitude explains all else. His
grace ls His kindness to the unde
serving. / Grace ls not a frame of mind
or n state of so,ul, hut the nttltudo of
God. "By grace are ye saved" and
over and over again, because we are
so slow to believe lt and because Ho
desires we should do so, comes the
salutation : "Grace be unto you."
But not only In His nttltudo but
In His activities on our behalf do we
see how all His heart ls occupied for
us.
Ju Jehovah keep thee. This ls our
assurance and our security that He
who ls gracious keeps us for His own.
"Kept by tho power of God." "Je
hovnlt is thy keeper," says tito Psalm
ist, and they are safe Indeed whom
He keeps. But not alone ns His own
possession. He will keep that life
in all Its dally affairs as though you
were His only child and His solitary
care "Jehovah keep thee." That im
plies what Scripture elsewhere cm
pbnslzes and what every hour of your
experience has proved: that you can
not keep yourself. "I am not being
put to shame," says the apostle, "for
. . . ho is able to keep that which
I have committed unto him." Not my
soul only, but my dnily life. O soul,
if Ile is not keeping thee, thou art be
ing put to shame. Every manifestation
of the flesh puts you to Blinnie. Every
lmputlont word, every unworthy deed
puts you to shnmo. He cnn keep you
and Ho will If you but give Him a
chance. Turn that lifo over to Him
nnd seo what He can make out of it,
see how He con keep It in holy
triumph and Joy.
2. The inst clement-last sweet,
lingering strain of tho anthem-ls
pence. "Jehovah give theo peace." In
all the wide universe, in all the
tongues that men have spoken, there
ls nu greater word. First salutation
of tho Risen Christ, "Peace bo unto
you;" last thing In Ills valedictory:
"Pence I leave with you." "He Is
our peace." O soul, anxious, care
worn, tossed and driven, fold this
blessing of God to thy poor heart. His
own peace ls for your present posses
sion. Ho desires you" to have lt.
Rave you seen tho full slgnificnnco
of tills blessing? Tho divine linnie oc
curs threo times, nnd three ls tho
number o? tho God-bend, sum of all
divino fullness. The connection of tho
three Persons With the thrco parts of
tho blessing can be easily traced. All
thnt God ls ls thus engngod for us:
Fnther, Son and Holy Spirit occupied
with us and for UP, and nil that wo
may bo blessed. Oh, who would live
nu unblest life? Who would he so
miserable? Give me this blessing of
God and I nm rich Indeod. My heaven

A bulletin from donison CoUogo
says:
"That South Carolina has a great
dormant resource in her futuro meat
producing capacity, a resource that
will ho gradually dovolopcd and
which will utilizo '.ho choap untllla
hlo lands of tho Stale," ls* tho opin
ion of Prof. ti, V. Starkoy, chief of
tho animal husbandry division, who
has recently returned from Western
North .Carolina, whore tho chief
source of income for tho farmer ls
cattlo. rt ls surprising but true that
tho farmers in this section are in
good circumstances. They aro living
In comfortable houses and soom to
have Incomes which supply their
needs.
"In fact, in traveling over several
States of tho South and West I have
yet to eeo a livestock section which
ls not prosperous," continued Prof.
Starkey.
Good Pnsturos-Profitable Beef
Production.
Thoro aro many farmers in South:
Carolina who believe that on tho
average beef production does not
pay. Perhaps they aro right. But
wo have tho right to ask, why ls lt
thai it does not pay? There aro sovo
ral things which might contribute to
the correct answer to this question,
some of which aro poor soils, poor
pastures, scrub cattle, free rango,
diseases, and tho like. Prof. Starkey
is of tho opinion, however, thal when
we get the right sort of pastures,
beef production will pay.
There are thousands of acres of
idle land In South Carolina and ns
soon as thoso acres aro put under
fence and the soil which is now baro
ls covered with grass hoof produc
tion con be made profitable. But wo
must not think for a minuto that
this chango will como about in ono
year, nor in live years. Economical
beef production on thin, cheap lands
will he a development that will of
necessity como slowly.

joke ls on tho doctor. He tells this
ono:
Ono patient fancied there was
something tho matter with his heart.
His physician mado a cursory exami
nation, which disclosed a quite largo
swelling In the patient's cardiac re
gion.''
"There certainly appears to ho an
extraordinary swelling right here,"
said tho doctor, tapping with his An
ger on the patient's sido. "We msut
reduce this at once."
Whereupon a faint smile appeared
on the patient's worried countenance.
"Oh, doctor," he exclaimed, "that
swolllng ls my pocket-book. Pleaso
don't reduce lt too much!"

ican egrets and snowy horons; also
destructive and beneficial birds and
injurious rodents.
The huerou of public roads will/
show models and illustrations of tho
construction of plain macadam and
bituminous macadam roads and tho

ern States, and methods of land
drainage.
Tho weather bureau will display

this yoar are tho product of years
of experience in show methods, and
every possible effort has been mado
to top all previous successes in this
