Robert Quillen Makes Frank State
ment, Acknowledging His Faults.
One of the most remarkable state
ments that ever appeared Jn any
newspaper ls the following, from tho
Fountain Inn Tribune, whose editor,
Robert Quillen, ls widely known as
a writer for ntagazlues and newspa
per syndicates:
"Of all the hard Jobs In the world,
that of making a public confession
is the hardest. But If lt ls the only
square thing to do, it must bo done.
This, therefore, ls an open letter to
the young fellows of Fountain Inn
the 'good fellows' - the fellows I
love and loaf with at times-the fel
lows, I have taken drinks with and
fellowship with.
"All this while I have been a mem
ber of the church-Just that and
nothing more. And when my con
science bothered me about taking a
drink when I could get lt, I said to
myself: 'Why, I am a liberal sup
porter of the church; ? pay the tithe;
I am a gentleman and a man of in
telligence; there ls no harm in my
toking a drink when I want it, for I
can handle lt.'
"I said that, but I was a Har. And
while posing as a church member and
a follower of Christ, and yet reserv
ing tho right to take a drink at my
pleasure, I was considerably lower
down that a snake's belly.
"This ls a bitter doso to swallow,
fellows, but I had lt coming to me.
And if my conduct has led any of
you to believe that a man can retain
his honor while carrying water on
both shoulders, I want to make lt
clear that lt's an Impossibility.
"I'm through. I'm 34 years of
age, and have never struck a lick for
my Lord. From now on I am His, to
use as Ho thinks best, and I'll stick
to Him if lt costs me everytning I
have and every friend I have.
"I'm ashamed, fellows. Forgive
me for not having been square.
"Robert Quillen."

Lack of Quality Cause of Prejudice
Against American Product.
(Progressive Farmer.)
Because 'American bacon sells in
England for a price far below Irish
bacon, some Americans assume that
this is due to a prejudice against
American bacon caused by spoiled
American bacon having been ration
ed during (he war. There is a "pre
judice" against American bacon all
right, but it is chiefly due to its in
ferior quality. Instead of trying to
put over inferior American bacon on
the English consumers, through a
campaign of advertising as proposed,
American meat producers Will find it
easier and cheaper to overcome this
English "prejudice" by improving
the quality of the product. Before
America will be able to remove this
prejudice wo must produce a bacon
type hog and cure tho product with
less salt. So long as wo try to make
bacon from a fat, corn-fed nog and
cure it by the use of so much salt,
no amount of advertising or other
form of promotion will remove the
English prejudice against American
bacon, and induco them to cease to
discriminate against it in price.

\i> Blblo Institute. ChlniKO.
TEXT-Now III Christ risen from tho dead
and becomo the flratfrulta of thom that
alopt.-1 Cor. 10:20.
The Bible is a book of facts out
of which issue great spiritual truths.
The s o truths
have been forma*
lated into doc
trines. To ','the
natural m n n,"
these doctrines
are like Hie dry
bones of Ezekiel's
vision - very
many and very
dry. To the re
generated 'mun
they nre like the
other purt of that
vision-when the
dry bones had been gathered together,
breathed upon from heaven, vitalized
and made to stand upon their feet, an
exceeding great army ready for battle.
If you are a Christian believer, be
ware of that which minimizes the Im
portance of Christian ?loctrlne.
Tho value of Christian truth and
doctrine lies hi Its ability to supply
spiritual power, to furnish moral in
centive and to lmpnrt mental vision
or understanding. This very truth of
Christ risen from the dead, thc first
fruits of them that slept, ls an ex
ample of this. When believed and re- 1
ceived it operates in a saving way:
"If thou shalt confess with thy mouth
the Lord Jesus Christ, and shalt be
lieve in thine heart that God hath
raised Him from the dead, thou shalt
be saved."
Salvation Comprehensive.
Snlvatton ls a big word, and com
prehends the whole process of God's
remedial work, past, present and fu
ture. It Includes the resurrection of
Christ ns Ute firstfruits and the res
urrection of believers in Christ agathe
harvest The firstfruits ls the pattern
and pledge of the coming harvest. In
tho Mosuic law the Hebrew people
were directed to bring a sheaf of the
field, like other sheaves that were to
bo gathered later, and to wave lt be
I foro the Lord as the first sheaf of the
harvest So ls Christ presented as .
Ute firstfruits* of the glorious and
L plenteous harvest to come-"Because
I live, ye sholl live also.4' There ls
spiritual power In this. What ls true
of our Lord ls true of everyi believer
In Him. Everything is made depend
ent on the believer's position as united
to Christ. This underlies tho whole
philosophy of the Gospel message', In
which we are invited to change our
position from headship la Adam to
headship in Christ, who through His
atonement for sin and Ills victory over
death and the grave, has become Sa
vior to all who put their trust In
The doctrine of our Identity with
Christ and our participation In Ills
riser life and victory supplies moral
tncenttv ; for a holy walk, and for
sacrificial service. This very truth
of the bodily resurrection of Christ
and of the resurrection of Christian
bellevertt when He returns, ls the
ground of tho appeal In I Cor. 15:58
"Therefore be ye steadfast, unmov
able, always abounding In the work
of the Lord, forasmuch as yo know
that your labor ls not In vain In the
The Apostle John used the same ba
sis of appeal and finds moral incentive
In the same facts-"Beloved, now are
we the sons of God, and lt doth not
yet appear what we shall be, but wo
know thnt when Ho shall appear we
shall be Uko Him, for we shall see Him
as He ls. And every man that hath
this hopo In him purlfioth himself, even
ns Ho ls pure."
These great doctrines concerning
the futuro blessings of Christian be
lievers are never presented as abstract
truths or for mere academic discus
sion, but ns vitalizing truths supplying
the necessary incentive for the conflict
with evil within and without
Worldly Philosophy Inadequate,
Such u truth as this concerning our
Lord's resurrection as the firstfruits of
a great harvest to follow Imparta
clear mental vision and understand
ing concerning the future. It re
claims tito future from that dreary In
definiteness and unthlnkableness Into
which false philosophy and false spir
itualism have put lt The New Testa
ment teaching of the resurrection la
plain, and when believed it saves us
from the delusive teaching against
which the Holy Spirit through the in
spired writers always puts Christians
on their guard. "Beware, lest any
man spoil you through philosophy and
vain deceit, after the tradition of men,
after the rudiments of the world, and
not after Christ." This philosophy
may be very attractive; lt la to the
natural mind. It has In it a specious
ness and nn appearance which prom
ise much, but which In the end give
no rest, no power for n holy life and
no solid hope for the future. It be
longs to the rudiments of the world
and ts not after Christ.
Tho religion of tho New Testament
ls plain and homely. It begins v.-ith a
bobe In a cradle. It follows that
babe nil the way through death and
resurrection to tho place ^f power
where the crucified and risen Man ls
seated on the right hand of God. It
bids us live In the risen Lord and look
to beconie like Him, risen In His very
imngo In a glorified body when He
shnll come. From the heavens He
speaks-Believe In Me, live in Me, and
you shall arise In Mo when I return.

One of those business psychologists

he is the real thing; but t? he caves

Mr. Lipsitz, who conducted a gen

about three miles from Beaufort, was
attacked by an Intruder, who entered
the store about midnight on Satur

him on tho head with somo heavy in

saw the intruder before his escape.
He is described as being a short and

was brought to Charleston as quick
