its savor. *n those days salt was
very Imperfectly made. It was some times mixed with large proportions of other mineral matter which was not separated after the grinding. Sometimes it was made by burning certain plants, as the Africans do at this day, and the larger part of it would be ashes. If left in a rain, the salt would be leeched out and only the refuse left, which was worthless, though it might still have the gen eral appearance of salt. Let us see to it that our religion Is not washed out and that we do not become use less. Our Saviour also says: "Ye are the light of the world." In another place he says: "I am the light of the world." It is an interesting fact that he used two different Greek words, both of which are translated "light." The one referring to him self means "original light," that Is, light that conies from the shining ob ject itself. The other means reflected light. The light of the sun is orig Mary Baldwin Seminary FOR YOUNG LADIES Established in 1842 Term begins September 12, 1918.

The light of the sun falling upon a mirror is reflected and may be thrown into a dark place, where the direct rays of the sun do not go. The amount of light reflected depends upon the character and condition of the mirror. If it is smoothly polished and clean it will reflect almost the whole light that falls upon it. But it may be so covered with dirt that It will reflect no light at all. The amount of light that we reflect will depend upon the amount of sin that is in our hearts and lives. Sometimes people think that their light is so small that it does not amount to much. The spark on the end of a match stem when the blazo has gone out will give enough light to show the way across a dark room. The flame Af the light-house lamp is not large, but it sends its beams a long way out into the darkness and guides the mariner so that he can avoid the rocks and go safely tnto (he harbor. A vessel was caught in a very se vere storm on one of our Great North ern Lakes. One of the passengers, frightened* by the darkness and the tempest, asked the pilot if he thought he could carry the ship safely into the harbor. He replied: "Yes, if the lower light is burning." When asked what he meant, he said: "There is a light-house up on the hill and I can see its light. When I get beyond this point of land I ought to be able to see a light down on the shore. If that is burning I can get my line from the two and guide the ship safe ly between the rocks." God is shin ing up on high. We are the lower lights, and our light is needed by those in the darkness of sin. In Matt. 28:18, 20 our Saviour tells us how we can get all needed help for living as he would have us live and doing what he has commanded us to do. "All power is given unto me . . . lo, I am with you always." The power is his and he is with us to give us the help we need, if we will only let him do so. THE TEACHER BEFORE THE CLASS.
