County line. Some people tell us that one can be as good a Christian as he desires to be. We emphatically deny this. There are multitudes of Christians who greatly desire to be vastly better than shev are. Their daily prayer is that they may be freer from imperfections, stronger in faith, wiser in the tin of God, and more capable of serving God and'inan. There may be some innocent souls who are as good as they wish to be. They may have reached a state of heart in which they feel quite satisfied vrith themselves. But such ones are the exceptions, and it is by no means certain that they could not be made still better than they are. We regard it as a hopeful sign when a Christian yearns to be a great deal better than ho is. He is quite sure to become bet ter. His very yearnings cause his heart to grow, to expand, to take no in creasing power. His struggles for betterment develops the finest element of his soul. There are sevoral things we should mind that would make us much better than we are: 1 Mind our tongue. Don't let it speak hasty, cruel, unkind or wicked words. 2. Mind our. eyes. Don't permit them to look on wjeked books, pictures c bjects. 3. Mind our ears. Don't suffer them to listen to wicked speeches, songs or words. 4 Mind our lips. Don't lot tobacco foul them. Don't let the food of glut ens enter between them. 5. Mind our hands. Don't let them steal or fight or write any evil words. 6. Mind our feet. Don't let them walk in the steps of he wicked. 7. Mind our heart Dont' let the love of sin grow in it. Don't give it o Satan, but ask Jesus to make it his Throne. There are so many of ua that think we are good enough. Some that think they are too good to associate with others. While the Christian peo ple should not associate with the wicked ones only in a Christian way and try to lead them from their evil doings. Some will say, I know I'm a better Christian than he or she, for they do this and that that I wouldn't do, and they claim to be a big Christian Jt is wrong for us to say that, for if they are a Curistian they are God's chil dren. too. Of course they may have some ways that we think are not right for a child of God, and we may have some that they do not like. But we should not fall out with them on tnat. There are some that know moie about Christianity than others, but if we are true followers of Christ, God loves us as much if we are ignorant in some things as he does if we were not. I think it is best that we are as ignorant in some things as we are. The children of God should 8 3e after the ones that have gone astray more than we do, and try and bring them unto God and where they can, learn something about a Savior. Not think we are too good to go about them at all, because they are wicked and poor. Their souls are precious to God Christ did not think he was too good to go among the poor and wicked when he was on earth, and are we bet ter than he wasY We should be so glad that Christ set the example for us to follow and we should try to follow "in His steps," as near as possible, and we should re member how He suffered and died that we might have eternal life. "For God so lov3d the world, that he gave his His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.'' (Juhn 3 :16). SAMANTHA. * Oregon. Bro.

MISSISSIPPI The Best Fertilizers for Corn That the yield of corn from the average farm can be greatly in creased by intelligent and liberal fertilization has been repeatedly demonstrated. Large crops of good corn result from preparing the land well, using the right kind and quantity of fertilizer, good seed and proper cultivation. Virginia - Carolina Fertilizers will greatly "increase your yield per acre" of corn or any other crop. In some cases remarkable results have been obtained. Mr. C. W. Carutheni of Sumpter County, Fla., writes: "Words cannot express the value of your fertilizer. It is really so far ahead of other companies' goods, that il would not pay anyone to use other brands, were they given free and put in the field. 1 can prove what 1 sav to be a fact. 1 made a test on five acres. I used on one halt the land your fertilizer and on the other half another company's fertil izer, same grade; the land received the same cultivation every, time. t kej>l a correct account of the amount of money / rot off each half ana /got $joo more from the land on which / used Virginia-Carolina Fertilixer than I did off the other half. I got four times as much corn from the land on which T used your fertilizer."
