I am subject to headaches and
many sevenlngs when I come homo
from the office, my thead hurts, but
a good nights sleep usually rids me
of it and I am fresh and bright the
following morning for my work.
But Sunday sun seems to bring a
headacho so often. It Is strango
they never come during the week,
always wait for Sunday. I have been
wondering of late if my headaches
were as real about Sunday School
time as I Imagine. It I were as In
terested In tho Bible Class as I am
the desk maybo there would not bo
the chronic Sunday headache. I re
call tho other night I came homo
and my wife wanted to go to a
party. I had a headacho and felt I
should not try it. She began to tell
me who would bo there and some
things that would happen and I Im
mediately started to get ready to go,
forgetful of my headache. A few
Sundays ago 1 was loafing down
town, trying to get fresh air (as I
said for my headacho) and met my
boy, Frank. I asked hlra why he was
not in Sunday School. Ho said ho
was "laying out". I whipped him
when I got homo for not going. He
whimpered out in the kitchen to bis
mother that I had a lot of business
whlpptng him for something I would
not do myself. I guess a fellow
would be mora consistent It he vent
alone with the boy. It !s not fair to
whip him for neglecting a duty
of the fellow that tried to shove the
support of the church and its work
off on someone else I felt guilty.
