Crops Aro Good and Contracting ls
in an Active Condition.
Lewiston, . Mont., Aug, :'.0.-Editor
Keowco Courier: Please allow me
space In your paper for a few words.
I want Ho give you and your read
err an idea of this part af thc conn-,
try -then I want'to ask you good
Southern peoplo a few questions.
1 will start on the most interest
ing* subject-that Is/, the crops-as
tho/fal mers aro now harvesting and
threshing their grain. Wo have a
good crop on an average. We have
wheat crops that are running any
where from IS to 56 bushels per
acre. Tho elevators aro having trou
ble getting grain cars to ship their
wheal. They are piling a lo- of the.
grain on the ground at the elevators
on account of tho shortage of cars.
The hay crop ls excellent. The spud
white potato) crop ls also good.
Everything looks encouraging and
everybody ls on the;move.
Yesterday, tho 2fltn, was election
day in this county and State, so that
gave me an opportunity to go to
Denton to voto. Wo lived on a ranch
for. threo years near Denton, and it
made mo feel Uko going home. It
had boon over a year since I had
been there. Mr. Johnson, president
of tho First National Bank of Den
ton, took mo for a ride out in tho
.cjotintry to show m'c what <lh>edr
crops looked Uko, and I can say that
thoy aro good. Listen: Ho did not
want to sell mo any land; ho is just
a (ruo friend of mino. Mr. Johnson
has honored m'y checks for as much
ns seven or eight hundred dollars
overdraft, running from ten to fif
teen days, without charging mo a
... penny as interest for tho accommo
dation. ls that a true friend?
Now, friends, hero ls where 1 want
to ask you a few questions, i am not
knocking tho*South nor tho Southern
people. I had tho pleasure of lalk
ing w'th quito a few friends while
1 was in your part of tito country.
About the first quostion most of
them' would ask Nr/as, "Have syou
como back to stay?" and of course
my answor was, "No." Then they
would nsk mo If my family was go
. lng back with mo. 1 would reply, "I
don't think so." Then they would
begin to wonder what sort of a man
I, was, to leave my family that far
' away. Some of them would say,
"Well, I was nevor that far away
from my family. I can't leave them
that far." Listen: There is no such
word ns "can't." You cnn do any
thing if you hnvo tho nerve. Somo
peoplo think they can't stand to soo
ono of their children lenvo. Wondor
if thoy stop to think what lt ls for
a man to leave his wifo and darling
little kids. lt can bo dono; I know
by oxporloncc, though lt ls anything

birth. We enter this lifo by birth;
"lour entrance upon eternal lifo must
be preceded also by a birth. Sin has
effaced lu mau both' tho moral aud
spiritual Imago Of God. The new birth
restores both. This ls tho unlforir
testimony of Scripture. Tho best that
can bo Said of tho old nature, declared
to be dead in trespasses and sin (Eph.
2:1), is that lt retained, in spite of tho
fail, a capacity to receive new lifo
from God and- respond to lils known
The parable of tho sower aptly il
lustrates tills. Therein four kinds of
soil uro represented. In three enses
Ute soil is inhospitable. In ono caso
only is tho soil good. But oven hero lt
does not germin?te the seed nor create
life within it. lt only receives lt, for
which lt has tho capacity and fur
nishes a hospitable environment In
which lt may develop and grow. Tho
interpretation of the parable as gen
erally given treats of tho soil as the
human heart, and of the seed as tho
Word of God. It ls thercforo the plant
ing of tho*Living Word lu tho heart
(which has the capacity to receive lt
and furnish a hospitable environment
for Its development) that results In
the reproduction of tho moral and
spiritual Image of God. This recep
tion of tho Living Word into a heart
is definite, and moro or less ?olearly
marked in tho experience of tho indi
vidual, being accompanied often by as
positive a crisis as when a child ls
born Into tho world.
In His talk with Nicodemus (John
8:5), Christ gives us tho ono instru
ment, the Living Word, and tho ono
active agent, tho Holy-Spirit, In effect
ing the wonderful transformation
called / the new birth. These divino
elements of conversion nre expressed
In other connections, ns for instance,
"That Ho might sanctify and cleanse
it with tho washing of water by tho
Word" (Eph. 6 :20) ; "Being born not
of corruptible seed, but of incorrupt
ible, by tho Word of God, which liveth
and abldeth forever" (I Peter 1:28) ;
and "According to His morey, Ho
saved us, by tho washing of regener
ation and the renewing of tho Holy
Ghost" (Titus 8:5).
Whenever, tiieroforo, tho Spirit ls
mentioned in connection with water
it signifies tho Spirit of God operating
In and through tho Word. To bo born,
therefore, of water and of Spirit, Is
tho New Tostnment way of saying
that the Divine Spirit ls the active
agent, and tho Divine Word ls tho ef
fective Instrument In tho new birth of
of the soul. "It ls tho Spirit that
qulckeneth; the flesh proflteth noth
ing; tho words I speak unto you they
aro spirit, and they are lifo" (John
"Hore then from headquarters we
have a statement that His Words aro
very spirit and life; that His Word
and Spirit aro Instrument and agent
In the immense work of creating o
new nature for the believer." "In tho
new birth, then, the Word of God is
the seed ; the human heart ls tho soil ;
God by Ills Spirit opens tho heart to
receive tho seed ; tho hearer believes,
the Spirit quickens the implanted
seed into Ufo in tho receptive heart;
tho now divino nature springs up out
of the Implanted Word; the bcllovor
is born again, created anew, made
olive, passed out of death Into life."
A remarkable brick, taken from thc
ancient wall of Babylon, bears tho in
scription of one of Its mighty kings,
In the center of the Inscription is the
footprint of a dog. It was the custom
to Imprint the royal mark upon bricks
used for public works. While this par
tlcular brick was lying In Its plastic
or soft state, drying In the sun, a
vagrant dog evidently trod upon lt.
Tho king's Inscription ls entirely ll?
f\loglble, while the footprint of tho dog
is perfectly distinct. So sin has ef?
faced tho Imago of God, leaving be
hind its own unmistakable mark. Tho
divino method of recovering what was
lost In sin is a new creation based on
an act of faith in tho finished work of
Christ. (II Cor. 5:17.)
