And, just like you, I wish I might . See thru the gloom of darkest night, While bravely faring on and on, The golden promise of the dawn. Yes, if I could, here's what I'd do I'd make the whole world JUST LIKE YOV. Author Unknown. Comment By Melvin Wheeler To me, these verses are precious. There is something about them that gives loftiness to thought. I believe the sentiment contained therein will react for good upon all who take the time to commit the poem to memory. After reciting certain virtues be longing to the idealistic "you," the writer in his happy frame of mind, says, "Yes if I could, here's what I'd do, I'd make the whole world Just like you." I wonder if the poet had some good person in mind when he penned these lines. I believe so. Allow me to bring the text home to us all. Before doing so, I'll place myself in the "you" class so that the lesson to be drawn will apply to my self as well as to other people. If you knew that you bad been chosen as a model next to Christ in importance would you be willing to have the world made just like youT Or, would you hold up your hands In horror and say, "Maice the world better than me. Make the world like Christ Then my goodness will be lost in the goodness of Him who hath no fault" If the most righteous person on earth should rebel at tbe thought of being made a model, supreme in the eyes of men, what would those on lower strata of life say? I fancy their answer would come in still greater volume, "No no, don't make the world just like me. Make the whole world just like Christ and allow me to be carried forward on the flood-tide of His goodness. No one would be willing to have the world mind centered upon him to the exclusion of the virtues rep resented in the Christ, yet, there are hut few who are not imitated to some degree. This fact forces a load of responsibility upon us all. The "you" personage to whom the poet refers, is one well on tbe way Christward. The poet would make the whole world as good as the best earthly model. Then he would trust the wooing of the spirit to lead man kind onward and upward to still greater perfection. The poet's model is the keeper of a way-station on the road to mansions on high. God grant that the poet's wish may come true. Give him enough influ ence to change this old world into a FIRST BASKET BALL GAME WEDNESDAY EVE The Democrat is printed a day ear ly this week that the advertising of Liberal merchants might reach the public before the Christmas shop ping is completed. For this reason we are unable to give the result of the Liberal-Tyrone basket ball game in this issue as the game is on the as the paper goes to press. Tyrone has it on Liberal consider ably in the matter of pracitce, so if they succeed in taking this first game there is no need for the fans to feel discouraged, for the team has the earmarks of a winner and we are ex pecting a good basket ball season.
