distinctions, yet He plainly recognized j
Bone open questions where no rule of
right or wrong was distinctly 3aid
down, depending largely upon the cir-:
cumstances of the case. It is the'
Christian's liberty in relation to
things indifferent?the use we make of |
the discretion left us. Therefore, we j
are judged by our attitude toward '
things in which we are free rather j
than where the rule is prescribed.
Christian people should not be 6atis- j
fied with what is demanded of them; j
they must render service with a mar- |
gin. The Christian pound is too light!
with sixteen ounces, and his yard stick !
too short at thirty-six inches. No one- j
seventh of our time will satisfy the !
Third Commandment, or one-tenth ot
our income the Gospel. Jesus wants a
discipleship that is uncalculating and
unmeasured?a discipleship of the sec- j
ond mile, doing more than is demand- j
No man is safe with a narrow moral j
margin. Jesus kept a wide margin j
between him and moral boundary j
linos?lived in the clear. Fruit trees |
back from the road are not so tempt- j
ing, but alas for the tree that hangs;
ovr the road?every boy sees it, andj
there will be more sticks and stones |
Aug at that tree than all others in the
orchard combined. So with the man
? who hangs over the moral line; he
invites temptation from every man
who passes. Get back from the line,
and live a life with a moral margin,:
was the earnest admonition of the

. borne with force by the speaker were: j
"The Christian's righteousness is j
not a righteousness of the law; the:
Christian's righteousness is not the:
righteousness of the Scribes and Phar-j
. isees: that may fall short of the King-1
dom of God. The Christian's right- j
eousness is an exceeding righteousness.
No man has made good simply j
by the keepiiig of the law."
"Young men, five minutes more after j
the whistle blows or the noon bell j
rings means much to your employer; j
? five minutes, more labor for which you
are under no obligation and for which
you expect nothing means much?five
minutes not written in the contract,
but five minutes written in the margin,
not ne plus ultra, but simply plus ultra.
This is the thing that counts for so I
much with men. And the life of j
Jesus Christ is the best illustration ofj
the principles he taught. Jesus Christ
lived a life with a broad margin. Jesus!
Christ did not seek how close the moral I
line he could live. Jesus Christ lived ;
and taught in the open, so far from j
borderland that you may challenge
the world to convict him that he had

"Do more than is required of you,"
he urged. "Not so much how much
* do other people tax you, how much do
you tax yourselves; not to see what
broad margin you can put between
you and self-sacrifice, but how can
you widen the margin between you and
selfrindulgence, is the question. I
tell you, Christian friends, there must'
be a broader margin to life and life's I
service to acceptably do our work. |
And I ask you, as Christian men and !
as Christian women, how are we doing j
our work? Doing it as Jesus did his.
pressed down, running over, good
measure, with a margin??or skimpy,
niggardly, hugging the edge of the
task. As Christian men and women,
we can not be satisled with simply
meeting the demands that are made
upon us. We can not be satisfied with
simply meeting the demands of the
church and the State. A congregation
can not be satisfied with simply meet- j
ing its assessment or its opportion-1
ment. All real progress and all real
satisfaction and all real happiness go
All these principles, said the speak- j
er, were beautifully summed up by |
f Mrs. Kingslev, in the dedication of her j
biography of her husband: "To the!
beloved memory of a righteous man,'
who loved God and truth above all
things; a man of untarnished honor,
loyal and chivalrous, gentle and true;
kind and merciful, tender and true; J
pitiful to the weak, yearning after the
erring; 6tern to all forms of wrong
and oppression, yet more stern to
* himself; who being angry, yet sinned
not; who lived in the presence of God
here, and who, passing through the
grave and the gate of death now liveth
unto God forevermore."

Love Has Spared Us," by Naylor, was

simply funny people. One subscriber
will be sensitive, not sensible, if his

while another will not like

ried over many names, some by request
and others on account of wishing
to treat all alike. While notifying for j
renewals the collector, on one hand, j
was asked, "Why didn't you cut me
off?isn't that the rule?" On the other
hand he was paid up. All are treated
alike, rich and poor, high and low,

name cut off. If subscriber sends
word to "continue paper, will pay in
few weeks," name stays on?but not
for too long; can't work. Remember
that. That subscriber who thinks he i
is discriminated against because he
fails to get his paper while his neighbor's
comes on, both subscriptions expiring
at the same time, must remem-.
ber that his neighbor requested its j
continuance while he didn't. The paper I
man is not expected to know, he takes j
it for granted that the paper is not
wanted when renewal or request for
rnrttinnanop is not. sent in. Now it OC- !
casionally happens that a name is accidentally
left on and not discovered
for some time after expiration, or a
subscription is not properly credited, j
or some name cut off that should not;
be, etc. This is not unusual in the
handling of thousands of names each
week,'putting on, taking off, changing
addresses and dates. "For the love of

that way to the editor, the editoi lays!
it on the mail list keeper. The editor

Every time a man comes in the office j
and says, "My fault that you cut me !
off, I didn't notify you, but put me on j
again," the thought comes stealing ov- j
er the office that that is a sensible man,
not sensitive man, .but a good, hard,
common, horse sense man. Everybody,
makes no difference if he does do
foolish things himself, likes a sensible
man. It is human nature. The Herald I
and News has hundreds of such men I
on its mailing list. The other kind
are in a great minority, thanks be.
The presumption is they all know the
rule, and why anyone should be offended
or hurt in this day of enlightenment
is about as mysterious to the writer as
was the coming and going of the wind i
to Mr. Nicodemus of old. Time was

Newberry Shriners Leave for Asheville
Messrs. Edward D. Pearce, Thomas
P. Johnson, Fred. H. Dominick, Jas. P.
Wilson, J. Claude Dominick, Harry W.
Do ninick, McK. Hutchison and William
Kibler left Tuesday for Asheville,
X. C., where they will attend the sum- j
mer pilgrimage of" Omar and Oasis \
Temples, Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.
It is expected that one ihousand nof
bles from North and South Carolina
will be present, and an excellent program
has been arranged for their en- '
tertainment in the mountain city.
The festivities will open with a ball
at Battery Park hotel Tuesday night.
On Wednesday the nobility will have
charge of the city?and the "meat" | (
who had the nerve to gather for the
purpose of "holding to the rope," and i.
crossing the "hot sands." The cere- j,
monial session and traditional banquet,
in addition to a reception to the
ladies, will be held on Wednesday
night at Battery Park.
Wherever a bunch of shriners get;
together there is "something doing," ;
and the pilgrimage to Asheville will
be no exception to the rule.
