TBXT-How shall we escape If we neg
lect BO great salvation.-Heb. 2:8.
Some years ago a preacher began
his sermon by saying he desired to
ask his audience
a question which
neither he, nor
any man In the
audience, nor
anyone In the
world could an
swer. He went
on to say that
even God Him?
self could not an*
swer lt. The
question was that
of the text.
The question Implies there ls some
thing to escape from. God moves so
slowly lu the matter of judgment that
some fall Into the error of thinking
we can sin with impunity and God
will forget lt. But the Scripture Bays:
"Cursed ls everyone that contlnueth
not in all things that are written in
tho book of tho law to do them." Ga
latians 8:10. Not only the curse, but
tho guilt of sin remains ngaluBt the
sinner because the Scripture says
again: "We know that what things
soever the law saith, lt saith to them
that are under the law, that every
mouth may be stopped and all the
world may become guilty before God."
-Romans 3:10. Not only the curse and
the guilt but, because of these, the
penalty of the broken law must be
met. "The wages of sin ls death."
-Romans 0:23. "The soul that sin
neth, lt shall die."-Ezekiel 18:20.
Such is the testimony of both the
Old and the New Testaments.
This question also Implies a uni
versal necessity of escape. How shall
we, the writer and the reader, escape?
"Ali have sinned."-Romans 8:23. It
ls not the degree but the fact of sin
that damns. And having sinned, all
come short of the standard given. "All
have sinned and come short of the
glory of God."-Romans 8:28. It bl
not a question as to how far short a
man comes, but does he come short
at all? If a pipe was needed to carry
water a distance of three miles, that
pipe might as well be short two miles
as to be six feet short So aa far as
coming short la concerned, a man
might Just as well sin frequently as
Infrequently. Both come abort of the
requirements. Further, having come
short, both are doomed.' "He that
keepeth the whole low and yet offends
in one point, he ls guilty of all."
James 2:10. Three men may face a
ch nam over which lt ls necessary for
them to Jump or loi>e \)u-\r lives on
the rocks below. One comes abort of
reaching the opposite side hy ono foot
and fulls to his death. Tho second
comes short half a foot and he too
ls killed. The third comos short bare
ly one inch but be meets death just
as the other two. All of them came
short. The Scripture says: "All have
sinned and come short"-Rom. 8:28.
8:23. The writer and the render have
both sinned and come short of the
glory of God, and, together with all
other members of our race, need sal
vation from the guilt and penalty up
on our sin. j
Again, the question Implies the
great hindrance to escape. Some fall
te escape because of heedlessness.
They cannot be made to hear and
heed the warning voice of God. Borne
there are who never escape because
they deny there ia anything to ea* ,
cape from. They believe God utters
falsehood, thinking He will fall to keep
Bia promises concerning judgment to
come. But thee? pro i? Ibes ar? aa ?ore
to be kept aa are the promises of !
Hta grace. Bot the great majority j
fall to escapa bocaus? of neglect '.
They do not really mean to pasa from
thia life without receiving God's eal* j
vation, but they pat H off from day
to day until they find themaelves with
out escape because of simple neglect j
If this ls read by any auch, the writer
bega that you will lay aald? all else,
until you have escaped from the guilt
and penalty of the broken law by ac*
ceptlng the great salvation so freely j
offered you by the Lord.
Finally this question tella of the
way of escape It Iles in the great
salvation purchased for na by the
sacrifice of Christ upon the cresa.
He bore the curse for us, "Christ hath
redeemed us from the curse of the
law, being mode a curse for us."
Galatians 8:13. He nssumod our guilt,
for "Ho was made sin fdr us . . ,
that we might be made the righteous
ness of God In Him."-II Corinthians
5:21. He bore the penalty; "His own
self bare our sins In His own body
on the tree."-1 Peter 2:24. "Christ
also suffered for sins, tho Just for the
unjust, that He might bring us to
God."-I Peter 8:18. It Is true that
"tlie wages of sin ls death," but "the
gift of God IB etornnl life in Jesus
Christ our Lord."-Romans 0:28.
Reader, db you possess this gift? If
not, will you now say from your heart :
"AB far nfl I know how, God helping
me, I accept Christ os my Saviour and
my Lord." Otherwise how shall you
escape If you neglect so great salva

Warren ville, Raxing Houses and Tak
ing Toll of Six Lives.
?Augusta, Qa., (March 7.-Six per
sons'are known to nave been killed
and scores were injured in the wind
and rain storm which early to-day
flooded streams and caused heavy
property damage in this section of
Georgia and South Carolina.
Four mill villages-(Langley, Stle
fleton, Graniteville and Warrenville,
in the ?Horse Creek Valley of South
Carolina-were struck by the tor
nado J^ust before daybreak to-day,
and houses were swept away, trees
uprooted and telegraph poles felled,
leaving the section in darkness and
without wire communication with
the outBide world.
The victims were caught under
their fallen homes. In some sections
the storm swept away everything in
its path, scattering parts of build
ings and furniture over the fields.
The brunt of the storm appeared
to have hit Warrenville and Stiefle
ton, where six persons are known to
be dead. Every house lu a row of
twelve, except one, in Warrenville
was razed. Four houses wero de
stroyed in Stiefleton. Pour of the
dead were children under 10 years
of age.
In Macon the rainfall was describ
ed as the heaviest in twenty-three
years, and the weather bureau was
preparing to issue storm warnings
on the Ocmulgee and Oconee rivers.
Around Milledgeville dirt roads and
bridges are reported washed out and
all train service entering Milledge
ville bas been suspended temporarily
as the resblt of washouts.
The six who were killed at War
renville and Stiefleton, S. C., are as
follows: Fred Hoover, age 12; Dolly
Mitchell, age 5; Mrs. L. Munday, age
40; Mrs. Boyd, age 36; Son Wood,
age 14; Dorothy Wood, age 8.
Many of the Injured are expected
to die. Estimates of the number in
jured in the two towns are conserva
tively placed at 40.

S. Kt and the Aiken Chapter of the
Iv??. Cross, in charge of Miss Agnes
Campbell, R G. Torence and Miss

; Warrenville and six were razed ov
j blown away at Stiefleton.
.Mrs, I*uvira Wood, mother ot Son
; and Dorothy Wood, two of tho dead,
is herself not expected to live. She
! with her two children, was crushed
in the ruins of her home. Others of
the injured are reported to be fear
fully crushed, some internally, and
it is in this class of injured that fur
ther deaths are expected. Many of
the injured suffered broken limbs.
Reports from Warrenville at noon
were to the effect that practically
every person there received some in
jury, though many have nothing but
minor scratches and bruises. War
renville ls a mill village between
Augusta, Ga., and Aiken, S. C., just
off the Southern iRailroad. Stiefleton
ls a small settlement a quarter of a

The storm struck Warrenville at
about 5 o'clock this morning, and lt
was three hours later before any in
formation of the disaster reached the
outside world. The town was com
pletely isolated.
The bodies of five of the dead
were taken to Graniteville, where a

Just Trifling with tho Law.
(Spbrtanburg .Herald.)
A Greenville man the other day
shot to death his mother-in-law and
his wife, while his own little chil
dren clung to the garments of their
defenseless mother. He was a white
man, and if we are to judge by the
records of the courts of this State,
there is little chance that he will
pay the death penalty. There are
white men in Greenville county
and no doubt in every other county
in South Carolina-who have com
mitted cold-blooded murder, enjoy
ing to-day all the rights and privi
leges of law-abiding citizens. This
condition breeds contempt for the,
law, and encourages crime, and so
long as murders are not punished in
South Carolina human life will con
tinue a trifling thing.
The criticism voiced here and there
of the law's delays, through the tech
nicalities criminal lawyers raise
seem to fall upon deaf ears, but as
certainly as a people continue indefi
nitely to sow to this wind they will
reap a whirlwind of murder and law

Salomo Was an Acrobat.
London, March 9.-Salome was an
acrobatic tumbler, not a dancer of
the modern ballet type, according to
evidence laid before the Royal Arch
aeloglcal Institute by Geo. C. Druce,
of Oxford. If his evidence is corrob
orated theologians, historians and
others have long labored under a
misapprehension as to Salome's first
claim to fame. All the old Illuminat
ed parchments and carvings show
her posing as an acrobat and not as
a dancer, Mr. Druce declares.
Early surgery went hand in hand
with shaving.

who won the prize of ,$50 in cash of
fered last fall by the First National
Bank of this city for the largest yield

"Cherokee, S. C., Feb. 6, 1922.
"Dear -Slr:

in the Irish potato contest, and Mr.

"In 1920 I selected the plot ot

seven two-horse loads of stable ma
nure and plowed deep. In the tall of
1920 I sowed this land in wheat. Af
ter harvesting my wheat I broadcast
ed seven more two-horse loads of
stable manure; broke deep with two

harrowed lt. In about one week I >
broke lt again and harrowed, and In
about ten days I harrowed again and
reharrowed it. Tho 20th of July I
put a good-sized plow on the guano
distributer and laid off the' rows
three feat apart, and dropped my po
tatoes fourteen inches apart; cov
ered them with a one-horse turner,
two furrows. In eight or ten days I
drug the beds down flat. In the
course ot ten days my potatoes were
up enough so that I took a harrow
and ran twice to the row. In about,
ten days or two weeks I took heel

Small Specimen Found on Street Af?
ter Recent Heavy Rain
(Rook Hill Herald.)
when John Short, who lives on
Wost Black street, stepped out in
front of his home this morning he
espied a small fish lying on the side
walk. John was positive that he had
no intention of engaging in piscicul
ture, and as he remembered nothing
of fleeing tho baby shad the. oveuing
before, he picked lt up, noting that,
it had struck tho sidewalk with great,
force, sufficient to drive a small par
ticle ot gravel into the body.
While marveling as to the pres
ence of the fish, along came Joe Mas
sey, who waB In equally as great a
quandary, as he had found a fish of
similar size on West Main street.
The two cogitated the problem, when
they remembered having read some
months ago an artlole in the Herald
relative'to alligators sud fish raining*
"Dat's whar dey come from," John
avowed, and Joe fully agreed. "I
knowed it was a-rainin' some last
night, but dis here ralnln* fishes hit
beats me," said Joe. Tho find was
bronght before the piscatorial re
porter, who advised lt was evidently
I another case of raining fishes, as
there was no other plausible theory
for the appearance of the members
of tho finny tribe. Skeptics are al
ways on hand, hut when confronted
with the fact that lt could be com
paratively easy for the elements to
pick up a portion of water from a
Stream, including fish, and let it
down in somo populated community,
when the lifting ot entire houses and
their removal to a distant point is
considered, their arguments were of
no avail.
What worried John and Joe was
tho fact that the fish were too small
to eat. If they had been six-pound
carp the two families could have had
fish and all accompaniments for the
noonday meal. As it is, they will en
