Vll men in every walk of life need to >rder their lives by this creed. A wonderful change would take place in society and Gods Kingdom would very soon be ushered in. The Baptist people held a W. M. U. ralley at Clear Creek .Church near Burgess Sunday. They had a rich and instructive program. A number of speakers taking part, a large crowd, was present, a good dinner served and the day and the feasts both spiritual and temporal enjoyed by all. Quite a number from Oxford was in attendance. “The Church that forgets itself in its passion for others will in that for- . getfulness find itself.” Mr. Boyce Henderson a splendid and j promising young man who graduated ; in law at the University recently? was ordained for the Ministry at the Bap tist Church Sunday, his brother Rev. Mr. Henderson of Grenada, preaching I the ordination sermon. We heartily congratulate our sister j church in s. - mg out so many bright J young mini, ers at this time of. great : need and. prey Gods richest blessings , upon the life and labors of this fine , young man. i Victories lhat are easy are cheap, j Those only ..re worth having which come as the result of hard fighting, lenry Ward Beecher.

TRUTH TRIUMPH. “To do the magnanimous thing when we know we are going to get no credit for it, to sacrifice when nobody is likely to find it out. to help those who Instead of gratitude will be likely to give us criticism, this is the Chris tian triumph. Sunday School Day was observed at Woodsons Ridge School house last Sunday. The children and young peo ple rendered a fine program in the forenoon and in the afternoon Chris tian Education and Sunday school work was stressed by Profs. M. P. Bush and C. A. McLarty, other speak ers were Rev. Mr. Hopper and Mesdames A. F. and J. S. Callaway. This was a fine day for Woodsons Ridge, a large crowd was in attend ence and the day well and profitably spent. Deepening the Channel.—It is a well-known fact that the more yeu confine a stream by narrowing its banks the swifter will be its current and the deeper the channel it will hew for itself. Eads, the great engineer, took advantage of this fact when he . ... .a • II* i-L a All Dull t UTie jci/tica ou -- Mississippi. By narrowing the chan nel he made the great river hew' out its owrn bed and at the same time make a safe highway to the sea for the larg est vessels. In like manner God, the Architect of human lives, deepens the channels of our experience, increasing our powrer and extending our useful ness. He leads us out of the sunlight of the broad meadows through the gloom of the high-walled canyons of suffering an dtrial. The walls draw j nearer and nearer; sometimes it seems that one can scarcely catch a glimpse of the blue sky overhead; but as the walls close in, our lives deepen and our power for service increases. Quiet ponds turn no mill wTheels and cany no boats to the sea.—Forward. It is desired that the young people of the Baptist church meet after prayer service each Wednesday eve ning for choir practice. We must keep our choir to a high standard during the summer. Being forced to work and to do your best' will breed you a hundred virtues which the idle never know.—Charles Kingsley. Don't foget Work Day at the Camp Ground Tuesday, June 7th. Everybody go take tools of every kind. Go early J and do your part. ' We understood that the services of the Epw'orth Leagues at the Method ist Church Sunday afternoon were very fine. The pastor, Rev. L. M. Lips comb, gave his people two great ser mons—services well attended morning j and everting. To do her best work the church must hold together regardless of weather conditions. A Habit of Kindness Take life all through, its adversity as well as its prosperity, its sickness as well as its health, its loss of its rights as well as enjoyment of them and we shall find that no natural sweetness of temper, much less any alquired equanamity, is equal to the support of a habit of kindness. Never theless, with the help of grace, the habit of saying kind words is very quickly formed, and when once formed it is not speedily lost. Sharpness, bit terness, sarcasm, acute observation, divination of motives—all these things disappear when a man is • earnestly conforming himself to the image of Jesus Christ. The very attempt to be like our dearest Lord is already a well spring of sweetness within us, flowing with an easy grace over all within our reach.—Sel.
