Greetings Our friends and neighbors from almost every part of tha country have been crowding into Berea during tha Uat week. Their names art too many to mention, but we welcome them, everyone, heartily. May their ihort ttay here be a joyous one, and their departure the beginning of more kindly memories. he Railway Wage Cut The an. Vent made thia week by the U. S. Railroad lbor Board that the' pay of Maintenance of Way employee! would be rut on July 1 an average of 13.2 percent and that corresponding rut for raiway shopmen, clerks, telegraphers, etc, would be forthcoming, precipitates another railway crisis. 'At this writing the decision itself is not at hand and the position taken by the Board cannot be fully analyzed. As reported in the press, how ever, this rut, which will affect 400,000 Maintenance of Way em ployees, will mean that wages which now range from 28c to 40c an hour will, after July 1, range from 23c to 36c an hour. The cost of living has receded, according to the latest reports, only 33 percent from the peak. It is obvious that many classes of workers affected by this derision will face hardships as a result of it The Labor Board's decision, which was concurred in by the public members and dissented from by the labor member, ap parently rests upon the relation between wages paid on railroads and those paid in similar kinds of work in other industries. The Board considers that even with tl reductions ordered the Main tenance of Way men will be a little better off than men doing corresponding tasks in other occupations. It is announced that the wage cut in the shop crafts will be ordered presently over the proU-sts of the labor members of the Board. In the meantime a ttrike ballot is being prepared for the Maintainance of Way employees and other railway organization are considering what course they will take. Cowardice or Dishonesty Both cowardice and criminality find their root in very small tho significant arts of dishonesty. Oftentimes consecutive prac tical jokes lead the joker into criminality Wholesome fun is a thing to be enjoyed, and makes boys out of most of us, but when ever an art is performed that deprives another of property or liberty, that art ceases to be a joke and becomes either coward ire or criminality. The college campus has parking spare for visiting cars, and un suspecting and innocent people leave thjir cars on the campus or on the streets of Berea while they attend some public entertainment, ' r! 10" return and find various accessories removed from their cars. Such arts r present the work of cowards and thieves. It does not become joke because these accessories are stolen from other people. It is rrgretable that there are any human beings in Berea, where we have so many good people and so many good things, who would be so base and cowardly as to rob automobiles and vehicles of things that do not contribute to their own wel fare or happiness. In a collection of "Reminiscences," which comprise volume I of a series of his professional and domestic records, the late Rev. Benjamin Angler Dean, who resided at 61 Center street, Berea, from the au lum of 1913 until his death on De cember 2, 1921, wrote as follows: "About April 1, (1866) I went to Washington, D. C (at that time Mr. Dean waa pursuing the study of the ology at Union Seminary, New York, N. Y.,) as a. delegate (so called) of the United States Christian Commis sion. Our chief business there was to hold religious meetings In the Convalescent and Refugee (Confed erate) Soldiers' Hospital and Camps and to talk with, read to, and write for, and nurse the sick and wounded soldiers. It is hard telling the re sult of our work, which was meant to be mainly evangelization. I did not preach much. Confederate ref ugees, however, abounded there and naturally wre religiously approach able, especially if they were profes sing Christians." Never.

TOWN LOTS AT AUCTION Saturday, June 24, Dixie Highway Park. ' OVER THE RIVER Over the river 1 see a gleam, A radiant fare In a sea of light, And hsnds that beckon across the stream, And I hear a voice that calls tonight. The night birds sins: By the meadow spring And melody sweet the church bells ring, While over the river and over the sea My loved ones are watchjag and waiting for me. A spirit is there with ar) angel fare Whose cheeks are aglow with th setting tun, And she stands apart in the holy place Awaiting in peace till the day is done. And there at her side O'er the ocean wide I long to be and forever abide, For over the river and over the sea My mother is watching and waiting for me. And a little form is standing there liooking across to this earthly shore, With a crown of light in his golden hair That shall brighten my path forevermore. And a pair of eyea In the golden skies Glow with a lijrht that never dies, For over the river and over the sea My baby stands watching and waiting for me. I see about them a mighty throng Joyously bowing before a throne, Lifting their voices in sweeter song Thsn mortal man has ever known. And everywhere In that heavenly air Voices are railing my spirit there, For over the river and over the sea My friends are watching and waiting for me. And every day as the moments go . And the yea'rs with heavier burdens come, I long to rest from my toil below And sleep in that far-off heavenly home. For my heart is sore , When I cannot restore The friends who hsve journeyed on before, While over the river and over the sea Their spirits are watching and waiting for me. John F. Smith ARMENIAN LYRICS When I Met Her A free translation from the authors own, ly bimself. When I met her under a solitary oak tree, Far, far from these hills, in a land full of shadows, She looked with a blank look; And when I took her hands in mine, ready to speak, Her hands remained passive and motionless, like a lake Where no gale has ever blown. "You are like the one I saw in my dream," I said; "You are the big-eyed child whom I loved before I knew; "You are a dream yourself, perhaps." The oak tree heaved above. The clouds seemed to jeer, There wss no one around but me and the tree, And yet she did not speak. Everything sounds like a sigh when sighs fill your breast And the air that you breathe weighs like many tons of lead, But then you always hope, I don't know what love would be like if ever We gave up hoping against hope, dreaming against dreams Like a bird flying against the wind. And then, behold! the sky seemed, to wake from its slumber With its million eyes peeping thru million miles, But so near I could touch them. Songs beiran to ring and smiles began to dawn: It was like a wedding of lily-white flowers in bloom. And we both sat and listened. I met her once more; this time it wss at night, And when a heart meets a heart after the sun is gone It's like a sunrise in the dark. I took her hand again and tho words would not come, I said: "Are you the big-eyed child whom I loved before I knew?" She did not look at me, but said: "Yes, I am." A.

The msster moved his skilled, unerring hands, And with his magic touched the ivory keys; And Music's soul, enchanted at hia call. Came from her fastness in the great unknown . Beyond the veil, by mortal eyes unseen, ' And thru the organ pipes a message breathed. Sad hearts aweary with their daily strife, And -pain and longjng and consuming grief, With sweet amaze sank into peaceful rest Upon the bosom of the Infinite. The lulling murmur of the glinting stream, The faintest fragrance of the woodland flower, Ravished their senses as they listened there, And wondered how, in one brief breath of time, So much of sorrow dies. The darkened soul. Beclouded with the earthly mists that rise About this pathway so that truth revealed No longer guides his footsteps, saw the veil Uplifted suddenly, and on his sight, Made crystal clear, a glorious vision burst Of truth and beauty in thia life, and the Celestial glory of the Absolute. And he trod firmly on the earthly path, His gaze uplifted to the Light of life, Whose radiance poured upon the organ tones. And one there wss who dreamed of southern skies, And night the stately, fair and tropic night. Trailing her luminous, phosphorescent veil. Shot thru with silver stars and ghosts of light, About the sleeping world beside the sea. She softly touched with her warns fragrant breath The dreamer's lips, and then her senses reeled With memories of love and lily blooms. Pallid with longing, drooping passion pale, To give their perfume to the tropic night The music pulsing thru the minor chords Blent with the warm waves lapping on the shore; And then with smooth transition softly passed To infinitely clesr, sweet melody, Then burst in major full, sonorous key Into the prsise of the Doxology. The venerable pastor preached the word, The angela listened, and the great I Am The humble house filled with his majesty. His glory shone abroad in that brief hour In which he once again to us revealed The untold riches of his wondrous grace, The gift of hia great light, unspeakable, The pleasures at hia side forever more The fullest joys that in his presence are. And there he said to us, "Go forth and give The gifts thst I so free to you have given." The master played the postlude. From the church With grave decorum passed the people forth.
